Happenings at Home: Big News

Just like the title of this post said I have some BIG NEWS to share! Last Saturday my oldest step-son asked his girlfriend Katy to marry him and she said YES! We are over the moon excited for these too and all that God has in store for them as an engaged and married couple. We love them both so much!

Easton and Katy at Horsetooth get engaged

He surprised her in one of the most beautiful locations here in Fort Collins, Horsetooth Reservoir. After asking he had another huge surprise for her! All of us, including her family and friends, were waiting to celebrate with them at a special place we had reserved. She was so surprised and we had fun celebrating them.

Easton and Katy are engaged!

Her parents stayed until Tuesday so we had them over for dinner on Monday night along with her sister and Easton’s mom and step-dad. It was a wonderful night and we enjoyed getting to know her parents some more. They are hoping to get married next October so now let the fun of wedding planning begin!

New Curtains

This past Thursday my awesome mom came over and helped me hang some beautiful new curtains I received from TwoPages Curtains! And to say that I am in love would be an understatement. They are stunning!!!

To say they have completely changed this space would be an understatement. They just feel so much more polished and you won’t even believe how affordable they are compared to most other custom curtains. I will be doing a full blog post here real soon with all of the details.

This Week On The Blog

This week was all about the Amazon Prime Big Deal Days and I shared deals on both Tuesday and Wednesday. Did you shop the sale? I ended up only buying one thing mostly because I was busy sourcing deals.

Then on Thursday I joined a talented group of creative bloggers who all shared their front yards or porches decorated for Halloween! I loved sharing our front steps and hope you enjoyed it as well!

  1. Kelly,
    Congratulations on the engagement. They look so happy. Your new curtains really make a huge difference. Have the best weekend.

  2. Your table is so full of autumn and this wonderful atmosphere of this time of year! I really like the way orange looks. For me, this color is one of my favorites. It reminds me that in autumn you need to appreciate every warm moment with loved ones, and it is very important to slow down and enjoy how nature is changing. Then there will be winter, spring, summer and autumn again. It’s a miracle. I love thinking about it. I like to enjoy every season of the year and decorate my house in accordance with it. Thanks for the post!
