Today I'm 29!!

Today is my 29th birthday! :) It's been a WONDERFUL day! 

Evan got me flowers (hydrangeas of course!) and made me cupcakes.

He even helped me hang the new curtains that arrived today!! 
(I don't think I like them so high though... the original plan was to get them hemmed to about 90" so I think I'll go ahead with that!)

Here I am blowing out the candles!! Made a big wish for the year :)

One of my favorite gifts - this botanical print from Restoration Hardware!

AND, Evan surprised me with a new car! 

(I should note though, we are not crazy, we have been thinking about getting a new one for a LONG time but he definitely surprised me today by coming home with this baby! So excited and blessed!)

Here is to hoping today is the start of a wonderful year! :)

Too Short but Sweet!

Soo I got new curtains for the dining room! See the problem?

I originally ordered 84" curtains thinking they'd be great, but once we got them I decided that they would be too low at that height.. I didn't even bother moving the curtain rods down, I just knew the second I saw it that I didn't want them any lower! (Would have been nice if I could have visualized that BEFORE I ordered them, but oh well!) 

 The ones you see here are already packed up and on their way back to Pottery Barn. I have 96" curtains coming later this week, and we'll have them hemmed a few inches so they are the PERFECT height for the room :) Looking at the short ones in the room still gets me excited though! The fabric is SOOO much better than the white sheets that were used as window hangings for the last year (they were here when we moved in).

These are the Peyton Grommet Drapes from Pottery Barn in "Oatmeal". I love that they are lined and have oil rubbed bronze grommets. When I went back to order the right size curtains, I actually ended up getting the same ones but in white for the living room. Can't wait for them to arrive and to show you how they look :)

(by the way, these ones look super wrinkly at the moment beause they'd JUST gotten out of the box!)
