Entry Update...

A little Entryway update...

This is the "winter" look of the entryway...

In the winter we have to have the rug in the entryway, otherwise water gets everywhere... I hate the rug because it covers all the tile.. but practical. Since we moved in, we have always have the little shoe organizer in the entryway to stack shoes on. The bench has been there for a while... I snagged it for 75% off at Target about a year ago and it works great because it has some storage under the seat.

So here is the "AFTER"... more of a "summer" look....

The rug is gone, the tile is showing, you can actually see the brown rugs, I hung a picture and I got a plant!!


I love this print/art that my parents got me for Christmas that spells out "HOME" with cool photography and has a verse on the bottom. Then I got a little plant that fits perfectly in the corner the pot was a terra cotta pot but I painted it brown to go with the rugs.

This is the other corner of the entryway that has the bench which usually becomes a place to hold our mail and my purse... and of course the coat rack for coats, keys and dog leashes.
So where did the shoe bench go and all the shoes disappear to?

To the incredibly clean coat closet right up the stairs... This is seriously the cleanest this closet has ever been... pretty excited about this closet now! We'll see if we keep our shoes up in the closet from now on... :)

Weekend Fun

The last couple weekends we have been busy!! Here are some of the things we have been up to:


Weekend Adventure #1: Twins at Target
So a few weekends ago Todd and I were able to go to a Twins game in their new ballpark Target Field with some of Todd's family. It is a beautiful new stadium! It was a gorgeous April afternoon... what a way to spend an afternoon!!
Here is a picture of the new stadium...


Todd and two of his brothers... with their matching shirts.

Part of the family...
us.

Weekend Adventure #2: Rhonda!!
Rhonda is one of my really good friends from College. We had alot of classes together because we were both going for Public Relations and then we were roommates for our senior year of college.. I always had fun with her! We now live 6 hours apart... but because of her new job, she was passing through Rochester last weekend!! It has been a year since we had seen each other so it was so fun to have Rhonda around!! We had a blast... but next time around we aren't going to wait another year to see each other again!

We took a walk downtown Rochester and got some cake from Chester's.... there were these beautiful tulips! They were too pretty not to take a picture of...

Then we got a little artisitic and found a mirrored building to take a picture...

More weekend adventures to come soon! :)
