It is a handheld espresso maker made by mypressi and Martha says that it makes a great shot! Finally an affordable way to make good espresso at home! Brian has been sent an e-mail with the link. Now all I need is a good steamer for steamed milk and chai...hint....hint!

- A good excuse to make pumpkin bread, apple pie, pumpkin pie, etc...(also known as a good excuse to get chubby!)
- Fall decorating.
- Fall Scents: Pumpkin and apple cider candles and scents. I went into Bath and Body Works(which I hardly ever do...to much of an overload for my nose) for bubble bath and started smelling their fall home scents. I walked out with a wall plug-in with one pumpkin patch smell and two replacement scents called Leaves. It is heavenly, I melt every time I walk through the dining room.
- Everything turning colors.
- The holiday season, yeah that's right I am EXCITED for Christmas ALREADY!

I was thinking this master bedroom wall, which you can see from the rest of the house if the door to the room is open (our bed is in the same spot.)
And these are the wallpapers that I am considering:
I love both of them, unfortunately they are both only available in the UK and the shipping costs the same as the wallpaper does. But still semi affordable...semi...! I think I am going to have to order samples!
In the meantime my parents are going to come over on Sunday and help us paint the bedroom a tan/gold color and paint the bathroom a light gray blue color. I am excited and a little nervous to see how it turns out!
I what do you think about my desire to paint and the wallpaper choices?

Without cable or Internet to distract us it has been nice. We sat on the back patio last night and talked and have been getting things done around the house. We absolutely love the house and are surprised by some of the things that feel like luxuries. I love parking in the garage and just walking into the house, it is something that I didn't think I would enjoy but I do. Having all new appliances is also nice, even though I live in fear of breaking something!
We have been having lawn drama, but that is a story for a different time! Hopefully we will get it all figured out. My parents are going to come and help us paint the bedroom on Sunday and stay the night. I am very excited for that! Sometime next week I will post a bunch of awesome pictures!

Signing definitely took longer than I thought, but it was totally worth it! We got our house and we couldn't be any more excited! The final figures were less than what we were originally thinking which was nice, since we stressed a lot about the final figures.
Since our schedules are so opposite (esp. with me working 12 hour shifts the first couple weeks of school) we didn't even have a chance to go over to the house and take a picture, or drink a glass of celebratory champagne. We are hoping to do that tonight!
