Houses and Weddings and Bears, Oh My!

Sorry I have been away so long. I just got back from visiting my family for Christmas! I missed Christmas day with them but this way was much better because we weren't so rushed and there was real quality time. While I was home we took care of some wedding things. It's a little stressful but fun, too. I can't wait for the big day. I'm trying my best not to be a Bridezilla but there are definitely a few things I would like to see played out exactly right.
We registered for some of our gifts. I picked out Fiesta dishes! I love how they have a vintage feel. Click here for some great info on Fiestaware.

So, on top of all the wedding day adventures my beau and I are also looking for a new home. The image above is not a home we are looking at, it is just one I admire when I google "bungalows." A bungalow would be my dreamy dream home but unfortunately there are only a few on the market around here and they have not been great at all on the inside. Did you know finding a home is so stressful?! Especially considering we are trying to find a home where we can raise a family. When I look at houses I have to picture myself with two teenagers driving me crazy. I need space! They need space! Who are these people and why are they making house-hunting so hard??!

That's what I am up to. In the few minutes of alone time I had yesterday I got into my studio. It's been a mess because of the holidays. I was spray painting jar lids like crazy trying to get gifts made. I didn't want to waste my time cleaning up so I watercolored in the middle of the madness.

Today I am back to work and couldn't be happier. Sorry this post was way wordy and less picture-y. Next time more candies for your eyes!

omg WHEN is your wedding? I want to come! I'll be your wedding photographer for free if you'll pay airfare from Stockholm and let me sleep on the couch?
