the 1/2 bathroom.

after work today we ran to walmart and bought a storage cabinet to put above the toilet in our 1/2 bathroom. it is pretty much the only bathroom that guests will use when they come over because it's downstairs and the only things that are really upstairs are the bedrooms, 2 other bathrooms and the laundry room. so we needed to make this bathroom somewhat user friendly. i hate walmart by the way. i try to pretend it's a target when i go in there but it doesn't work. anyway, i thought the bathroom turned out pretty cute! that room has had absolutely nothing in it except for soap since we moved in. i am not very good at decorating, but we needed a cabinet there and a towel rack, so this cabinet just seemed very functional. and those towels look dirty and wrinkly but they are actually brand new. i thought about ironing them but then i remembered that would be against everything i stand for so i didn't.

also, moe loves our bed now. and so do we, but still. i can't get him off of it. but i am a hypocrite because i am always on it too. our room just feels so cozy now. also? he loves the couch. and so do i. even though he looks sad in that picture? i promise he loves it. today sean took him up to the mountains and he jumped in the water and had a blast. he has always been afraid of water, so this was a big deal for moses. we are so proud of him. even though he drives me crazy most of the time? i love him to pieces. i am so glad he is in our little family.

Your bathroom totally turned out cute. And yeah, there's no way walmart comes close to target in decorating stuff. Seriously, nowhere. Man, your puppy is SO big. Also, I love the pillows on your bed.

my fiance and i are considering getting a yellow lab. i want him to be an inside dog, but i was wondering if you could tell me how much they shed and if there's a secret you've found to maintaining all the hair?

thanks, nichole
