inspiration workshop with Gussy Sews: RED!

today over at the inspiration workshop with gussy, we're talking about


red is one of my very favorite colors.  i, personally, think there isn't anyone in the world that looks bad in red!  red is sexy, smart, calm, warm, trendy and yet trend enduring all at the same time.

seriously, it's the perfect color.

here are some pretties from pinterest that i was feeling this morning...

i believe i let it slip in my last post that we are moving to the country in a couple of tickets.  if you follow me on facebook or twitter, you've seen the photos to prove it.  (don't worry, i'll be uploading to the ol' blog soon enough.)  our new place has not one, but TWO red barns!  and i'm super excited about them both.

side note: when i told my brother about our new place and told him there were two barns, he says to me, "the only thing better than one barn is two barns, i always say."

he doesn't get it.  he's a city boy.

i'm a little angry at pinterest for not being around from the fall of 2009 while i was planning my wedding.  i'd like a do-over wedding, so i can wear this dress.  mmmmkay?  'kay.

hello, entirely red accessorized kitchen with awesome dark grey cabinets and beautiful red cherry wallpaper, i'm catie.  have we met?  heck yes we my dreams.

gorgeous flowers.  just be glad i didn't add a gratuitous wedding shot in here.  you know i wanted to...

i know summer is almost over, but i LOOOOOVE this outfit.

i am, quite literally, the biggest fan of fall.  ever.  hands down.

i have this weird hair color that's not really brunette, not really blonde and not really red.  it's like this odd mix of color and i don't really hate it, but i wouldn't really say that i love it either.  i'm "meh" about it.  kyle calls me a "ginger" all the time, but that's more due to the translucent skin and freckles than flaming red hair.  how beautiful is this girl's hair?  simply gorgeous.  i want, i want!  i totally want to dye my hair now.

here's another fun story: not that long ago, kyle was staring at me as i was getting ready to go somewhere.  i think it was a wedding, but i honestly don't remember.  i was straightening my hair and he just kept looking at me.  i finally turned to him and asked him what exactly was it he was looking at and he goes, "you know, i really prefer blondes, but your hair color, whatever that is, is my second favorite color."


and, just for the record, i'll post a picture of the most accurate picture of my true hair color.  it's horrible of me, but let's focus on the hair, people.

my friend, ty, and i on fake patty's day, which i blogged a bit about here in march.  so let's not judge people, it's just not nice.  and it was 10 am and i had been drinking for 4 hours already.

note the start of ty's green mustache.  green beer = green mustaches.

i love being irish.  or fake irish.


join us for the party!

hello lovelies!

sorry.  thank you for hanging in there with me.

i know it's been a month...i'm exhausted just THINKING about what i've done in the last 30 days or so.

so much to tell you....let's see...where to start.

- went to my sister-in-law's baby shower
- went out to our farm to work on the trailer (and other things)
- signed the paperwork for our new house
- became an AUNT AND UNCLE to sweet audrey alexandra
- i studied for and took my licensure exam (ugh...)
- kyle traveled to mexico for work, again
- i helped with a baby shower for a coworker
- i helped with an IIDA event, Like TOTALLY Rad 80s Trivia! (so fun)
- started painting the new house
- started packing (ok, so only like five boxes, but still...we've started) and moving cars out to the new house
- bought a new (to us) car

so, basically this post just turned into a bunch of excuses on why i haven't posted in a while...

we'll talk soon!
