Pumpkin Patch Trip 2016

Monday, October 24, 2016

It pretty much goes without saying that this holiday loving girl will make at least one trip to the pumpkin patch each fall season. Unfortunately Oregon weather hasn't been too cooperative lately, so we had to try to beat the crowds this Saturday when there was finally a dry day! It was so fun to see Harper get to actually enjoy the trip this year, instead of sleeping through the entire outing like she did last year.

We went to one of our favorite local patches, Baggensto's. They have lots of activities for the kids, including games, corn mazes, and some animals to visit with. You can take a free hay/tractor ride down to a field where they have lots of pumpkins for you to choose from. We let Harper walk around and check everything out to pick her favorite. 
We've been coming to this farm for several years, and it's so neat to look back at our visits when Dan and I first started dating to now being able to bring our daughter with us. We even got to bring my parents along for a fun morning outing. Thankfully we got there early and beat some of the crowds! 
Now that we've got our pumpkins, I'm hoping to carve a couple this week and maybe let Harper paint hers before Halloween next weekend. It's safe to say I'm absolutely in love with Harper's Halloween costume that my mom handmade and can't wait for her to get to show it off! I'm sure it will make at least one or several appearances around this blog and of course all social media accounts! 

What's your favorite fall or Halloween tradition? 

One Room Challenge Week Three - All the Ordering

Friday, October 21, 2016

So week three has been a productive one, but unfortunately one that I don't have too many photos of. If you missed the first two weeks, you can catch up here

 Here's a recap of what we've gotten done this week!
We've decided on new fabric for our headboard, but unfortunately I had to order it because Joann's didn't have a large enough amount of fabric. I was looking for three yards and they only had pieces up to two yards long. It should get delivered tonight and hopefully I'll re do it this weekend so I can get an idea of how the color looks in the room and I can start looking for more decor to use throughout.
This is the fabric we ended up going with, and I can't wait to use it and see how it looks in our room! Now I just have to decide if I want to add curtains as well and if I do, what would look good with this fabric. Any suggestions? 

Ordered and put together new dressers to use as bed side tables. After looking for a long time at different side tables, I decided I wanted something larger and with more storage so we came to the decision to use dressers instead of bed side tables to eliminate extra furniture and make the room feel larger. I already LOVE the look of the new dressers and really feel like it makes the room look more grand. We went with these dressers from Target. Don't you just love them?
I ordered a larger dresser to put under the TV. I'm hoping it doesn't take too long to ship and that I'll have it in the room within the next week or so. It took us a really long time to find something we loved and that would fit the space correctly. We are going to have to move around the TV wall mount and do a little redecorating but I'm crossing my fingers that once it's all in place we will love it! We ordered it from Joss & Main and it's going to take a couple weeks to get here, so I'm just hoping it arrives in time and looks good with everything else. I may change out the nobs to match the other dressers a little better, but I'll decide once I have it all in the space. We also purchased new bedding - After ordering the head board fabric and deciding on dressers, I knew I wanted something simple and light when it came to ordering a new comforter. I ended up finding something perfect during our shopping trip to Target this week!

And finally, we purchased new lamps for our bed side tables - I wasn't originally going to do this, but I unfortunately broke one of our current lamps earlier in the week so I ended up adding this to the to do list.
Things I have left to do: 
- Find more decor to use throughout the room
- Decide which photos to use and how to display them
- Re-do the headboard once the fabric arrives
- Put together the third dresser once it arrives
- Decorate the entire room and photograph it to share on the blog

I'm really glad I joined in on this challenge because it's definitely pushing me to make decisions and complete this space. I have been thinking about redoing this room since we moved in so I am excited to see it all come together!

So time for your input, should I add curtains to the room or no curtains?

One Room Challenge - Week 2 Design Board

Friday, October 14, 2016

Hello everyone and welcome to week 2 of the One Room Challenge. If you missed my announcement last week make sure to check that out. I am excited to participate in this installment of the One Room Challenge and make over our master bedroom in the next few weeks. You can hop back over to my week 1 post to see the before pictures to give you an idea of the space we are working with. 

So this week I wanted to share with you some of the inspiration and ideas I have for this makeover. 

I'm really loving the idea of a clean look and I love the accents of dark blue. I love the current color in our room but I want to make it a more sophisticated and clean looking room where it all flows and matches. I feel like for so long our master bedroom has been a mix of decor and elements that we've collected over the years and I want to really make it all feel like it fits in this space.

Our plan is to get all new dressers and side tables, redo the headboard and update the decor in the room. I'm still trying to decide if I also want to add curtains or not. I am leaning more towards yes, but I am definitely open to suggestions.

What are your favorite elements of a master bedroom? Have any suggestions for things I should add to the room?
