purdy in pink.

 ryan is working out of town this week so i've been taking advantage of the time alone to work on some home projects.  our old rusted medicine cabinet has been driving me crazy so i cleaned and spray-painted it PINK.  we are renters, otherwise we would replace the cabinet and remodel the whole bathroom.  but instead, we are embracing the 1960's pink & grey bathroom and freshen it up with paint and accessories.  
so fresh and so clean.
it's the little things, like a coat of paint, that can make a huge impact.
i smile every time i open the cabinet.

currently on repeat.

the head and the heart
rivers and roads
a year from now we'll all be gone...
rivers and roads
rivers 'til i reach you
lost in my mind
how’s that bricklayin’ coming
how’s your engine running
is that bridge getting built
are your hands getting filled

won’t you tell me my brother
cause there are stars up above
we can start moving forward

lost in my mind
lost in my mind
oh I get Lost in my mind

pets are family.

I love the shirts Ryan got us from the Humane Society.
We have two dogs, Mieka (pictured below) a 10-year-old long haired chihuahua and Sienna a 3-year-old doberman we rescued. 
Our pooches make me happy, happy, happy.  They are our children!

a game of speed, strategy and fear.

A few years ago I received a paintball gun for Valentine's Day.  It may seem like a weird gift to some, but I was absolutely ecstatic!  One of the best/unique gifts I have ever received.

There's just something so exhilarating about hiding in the woods, running through creeks, sneaking up on your friends opponents, and blasting them with paint.  Ooooh, and bringing in the flag doesn't suck either!
A group of us battled on the paintball this past Saturday.  We enjoyed great weather and walking off the field undefeated.
{On the way to the field.  Lovely sunrise.}
{Couples that play together stay together. hehee}

{Finally got hit! At least it was pink paint.}

{The boys preparing before the next game.}
