Like a Kid Waiting for Christmas

Mr. Fix-It and I LOVE to travel. Fitting trips and vacations into our lives is high on the priority list for both of us. If you've been following along for a while you know that we visited many beautiful places in 2011.

Each of those trips were wonderful and amazing in their own way, but I have to admit that I've been hopelessly craving some lazy time by the beach. There is something about napping on a lounge chair, swimming in the ocean, and finishing a book in a few short days that is unbelievably satisfying.

When Mr. Fix-It asked me how I wanted to celebrate my 30th birthday, my answer has been the same for months: I want to lay on a beach for a few days. And guess what? As of this week, IT'S HAPPENING!

I AM SO EXCITED! This year has already been a complete whilrwind of activity, and I swear I'm literally jumping out of my skin to completely unwind, breathe in some salty sea air, and feel the sun on my skin. (GAH! Can't wait!!!) A few days in Mexico have never sounded better.

Master Bedroom Refresh

As per my 30 before 30 list, and several other mentions on this blog, I've been wanting to repaint our Master Bedroom for some time. At first, I was a big fan of our rich, aubergine accent wall, but then I was just kind of over it. Mr. Fix-It thought I was crazy to want to "re-do" a room already, but really, we're coming up on 3 years in our condo. It was time for a change.

In case you forgot what the "before" looked like:
