Vacation anyone?

Oooops! I was so busy browsing home decorating websites today that I forgot to do my challenge!

Today's challenge is to talk about vacation. I'm not really going on a vacation this summer, however, I am in a completely new province that has BEACHES so I think just being here at home is going to feel like a vacation! We visited here last summer, but only for two weeks and in late August. I'm excited to experience my first whole summer on Price Edward Island. I spent my entire life up until this point in Alberta, which is completely landlocked and quite mountainous, so being surrounded by the ocean is a big change for me. It still blows me mind all the time, just ask Matt. I'm constantly saying "I can't believe I live on an island" or "Whoa, look, the ocean". Lol :)

Here are a couple of beachy photos from when we visited last year:





Anyways - like I said in the beginning of this post I spent a lot of the day looking at home decor websites. I feel a new obsession starting to slowly creep in.... I am already coming up with all these ideas to decorate our place. For example, Matt's father gave us a coffee table that has a shelf underneath which is currently filled with baskets full of junk and they don't look very nice. I am planning on sewing a few pleated pannels and then attaching them under the top of the table with a glue gun to create almost like a little curtain that hides all our junk!! yay! It should be relatively cheap (all I have to buy is about 1 meter of fabric) and easy to do.

Somewhere in between the home decoratinmg research, I made a cute unicorn plaque today, but I forgot my camera at the MIL's house so no photo yet. I also organized our bookshelf by color, so we have a rainbowy bookshelf. Matt thinks I am utterly ridiculous for the two aforementioned things, and I probably am, but come on a rainbow bookshelf is pretty damn cool.

Speaking of my mother in law.. she bought a karaoke machine! Yesterday was Jessica's birthday so she surprised the family with the machine and gave Jessica a bunch of cd's for it and an extra microphone. A very good time was had, and I'm sure there will be more to come. I have no idea why I didn't think to purchase a karaoke machine before because I had the best time I have had in a looong time. Oh, btw, I own at karaoke and will kick your butt :P

Tomorrow is wedding invitation day, finally. After months of getting pushed back and pushed back, we are finally assembling them. For some reason I'm not looking forward to it! Wish me luck.
