hello friends...yes i am still alive. i apologize i have been totally MIA for sometime. mucho going on here in this wooten world. we went out of town, for a few days, check out the evidence over at beth's. starting my new job, deciding to move {to another casa here in fort worth} and just not feeling too hot has left this poor little blog here very neglected.

build your own dream home

boy was i honored when Nikki, at Que sera sera! tagged me in a "build your own dream home." so basically i just unloaded my inspiration folder in the blog post. i have to say this post will be long...but its full of beautiful pictures so if you can hang with me, i can promise it will be worth it :)

but before i get to that i want to go ahead and tag a few favs..

"my dream home" may have many faces...

enter and feist your eyes on my beautiful wall paper and my chevron/herringbone floor

or you can just stare at your reflection at my spotless wood floors

you can kick back and relax, only do so gently with my glass table in front

i think i could sit in my living area all day...

did you not find anything on tv in my living area? not a problem, think of a book title, any book title...i have here in my library

let me get you something to eat. have you seen how big my refrigerator is? its unlike any other and works magic on food. this way it keeps food for weeks!
i have to have two islands, one ofr the kids to sit at and another for the food prep

i love white dishes...and all of this blue


and you can choose any one of my dining areas to sit and enjoy some delicious food

tired after a looooooooong day of work at your new job? i am. i think i'll take a long relaxing bath in my luxurious bath tub

and pluck my eyebrows here, ahhh, so relaxing just thinking about it

our glamorous bedroom

do you see the pom poms i made for out nursery? i have always said we wanted to have lots of kids and this house a rooms for all of them.

oh we also have some older children, this is my little girls room

and my little boys room

and this is their those colors

one of our guest bedrooms, its the 7th door on the right...not the 2nd {can you guess what movie that's from??}

my office

lets go outside and get some vitamin D

thanks so much for visiting, i promised it would be long but delightful!

i'm in awe of the last find i have made. i have been searching for something such as this since before we were married. today was my lucky lucky day!

look even sophie is admiring. its the perfect mirrored coffee table. now before you think i went to a normal furniture place and stumbled across this, please remember who is writing. its not that i am opposed to furniture stores, its just that with our budget i try not to go into them. it would just be frustrating. so this gem was believe it or not found in a thrift store. yes that's right a thrift store.

enter MIL, kitty... i have to give her many thanks as she has heard me talk about mirrored furniture forever. so she had told me that she would purchase it for me :)

now remember these frames?

and these plates?

well i have been at a loss of how to make them work. they have both made their way around the whole apt many many times...

so when kitty helped me get the table up our three flights of stairs, i took advantage of her. and together we created this...

now i sit here in awe of it all

and scene

mother's day dinner with all of my family in fort worth. wootens/williams united.
may have been my most favorite dinner
{also my knees are bent some, i maybe short but not that short}

i've mentioned before i'm not the most experienced cooker... i'm always looking for more recipes/easy approaches to cooking. not to mention our little budget we are on, i don't want to burn through all of our food on one meal. :/

enter broke ass gourmet, {pardon the language, if it wasn't the name of the blog, it wouldn't be said...and trust me its a great blog so just overlook the name}

now all of their recipes are created within a $20 budget...did you hear that? $20 for meals that serve 4-6 people! they also recommend inexpensive wines, beers and greatness

i mean just look at these pictures....yummy!

clothes to consider
