This post is random. My Mr. is an engineer, environmental focus designing waste water sewer plants, but also can design blueprints and has worked on one of the owner of his companies new house. I am very proud of his efforts. While becoming addicted to Pinterest this summer, I started thinking that maybe someday we will be able to design our own house, and started pinning houses, kitchens and other rooms that I love. Ideally I have our whole new house planned. Mr. doesn't agree with all of it. So here is the Murphy Dream House.

The House- I have always wanted a big front porch to let my children play, and relax with Mr. at night.


The kitchen is open and large, white, with lots of light! Mr. doesn't love it, he likes the white, he doesn't like that this particular kitchen is open to the dinning room and living room, which is what I love!

The Living Room...however we would have completly different furniture with hopefully a lake view!

We both completely agree on the bathroom...

The Master Bedroom.....I love the alcove, and lighting!

So there it is...the Dream.....Do you have a Dream Home, Do you Pin it?

End of Summer

Summer Vacation is officially over- well it was last Sunday for me. School started on Monday, and exhausted me all week! I do have a great class this year- which is very refreshing! They are a bit "chatty" but I'll take it over behavior issues. I have missed there silly sayings...my favorites from this week...."Mrs. Murphy, I'm R rated"....."really?"...."yeah a rich man", and "well my dog I was tickling him last night and he peed all over me like squirt out in a stream pee". Oh my...they say the craziest things.

Things around the house have been very relaxed in a crazy way. When I say relaxed I mean it's a mess. I have no picked up, wiped down the bathrooms, or dusted in 2 weeks. Upon walking in you may not think it's a mess but to me..ugh. It has been crazy because it's back the commute schedule which includes waking at 5:30, dropping off E-man at 6:30 driving an hour and 15 min to work, working 8 hours, picking up E-man between 5:30-6 depending on traffic, home, cook dinner, play, bath, read books, bed, mommy shower, bed, repeat. Whewh. I hope the day when I can stay home, and only do photography happen much sooner than later.

Ian is growing like a weed! He is finally going to sleep at bedtime without Mommy or cries or fits! He is talking in sentences, and has become quite sassy at times. I guess the terrible twos are starting slightly early. He is so much fun, and so silly. We laugh all the time. He is also saying "I'm Sorry" at all the right times, and is sincere, which I love it is so sweet, he even says it to the dog, and the cars in the publix parking lot as we walk in because he thinks we are in there way.

Photography is going well, and is still coming in waves. I am learning so much, and growing with even shoot I do. I have a few today I am pretty excited about! I am also running my first marketing ad. I will reveal where and what it looks like in a few weeks!

Have a great weekend Y'all!
