Vintage Market & a Friend!

Finally after a couple months of absolute boredom, a fun day! I heard about Petticoats on the Prairie, I knew that I wanted to go but I had no one to go with me. My old friend Corey from middle school (and 9th grade) lives in this area and said that she would like to go with me. We made the plans and this morning was the first time I have seen her in 11 years!  It was so great to be able to spend time with her and talk. After browsing the vintage market, we headed back in to Colorado City, and checked out some of the local antique shops. :) Hopefully we will get the chance to do something else before I head to San Antonio for our next job.

Petticoats on the Prairie was amazing, had I had an unlimited budget and a uhaul trailer with me I would have bought so much. They had the cutest little vintage trailers on display from Sisters on the Fly.. So colorful and meticulously decorated. These women are amazing and so creative!

I ended up buying two super cute headbands and a gorgeous custom crown, all to be used as photo props, I can't wait until I can use them !

Still nothing going on...

After a very fun full summer with the girls, we have been saving like crazy for a truck, so making fun little trips has taken the back burner.. hoping to go to the Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico soon! We have been making some improvements on the RV. New carpet, some new shelves, etc...

This is the carpet. BEFORE. nasty. I know. I can't believe I lived with it as long as I did, although I always had rugs down on top of it. 

My dad was a HUGE help in pulling the old carpet and couch out. We decided to get rid of the couch because the springs had ripped through the top anyway. Not to mention it was not all that comfortable.

 And the final...  for now, since the dinette bench faces the TV we decided that for now, the space could be easily used for my desk and keyboard. :) But you can see the pretty new carpet :)

We also decided to replace the entry and bathroom flooring :) It was originally white linoleum. 
 Pretty sure I like the new tile better :)

We also did some other projects around the house... adding some new shelves...

Attempting to make my front door area pretty :)
 Love my new windchime :)
Hopefully soon I will have something better to blog about... I mean, seriously... how much more boring could life possibly get?
