We got back home last night. We had a very fun time! We got to see a winter wonderland in April on Clingmas Dome mountain!! I will post pictures soon. :)

For now I just want to share some inspiration photos.

I like the look of stripes with florals. Maybe I am (yet again) late on this trend since I already saw it a lot on pinterest last Fall.

And a cool bear art piece, me keeping the Smoky Mt black bears in mind(though we didn't see any)!

Four More Sleeps

Our trip to stay in the cabin is getting closer! Four more sleeps until we leave, as I told Kavi!

The weather keeps changing it's mind about how it's going to be in Gatlinburg, TN so I will just pack on Friday probably. We leave Saturday morning.

I think I am going to bake some brownies to take for all of us to snack on in the cabin. I might use the recipe on the side of the cocoa powder box I have. You can see it here: If they turn out delicious, I will have to pin them!

And I wanted to share a painting I did for our house decor. It is simplistic but I like it!

Our Easter

Sorry to make this all instagram photos, BUT us android users only got the app available for our phones last week! So I am having fun with it.

Our first Easter in Alabama!! As seen in edited square photos (heh):
Set up the treat table the night before and used a tutorial to make the pinwheels

Easter treat tote instead of basket
Church, in an old theater, we've been there 4 times now and are thinking to keep going for now.
It's near UAB and downtown Birmingham.

Walking trail

There is a park a few miles away that we only started going to in the middle of March. We've been in this house almost three months!(It feels longer though! We feel very at home in our house now)
We hadn't noticed the park but my mom did, on her way to our house. We decided to check it out and it's great! There is a walking trail that is just under a mile and goes around a lake. Some of the trail is on the wooded, hilly side of the lake and the some is on the flat outer side. We have walked there three times so far and I want to continue to do that until it gets really hot. The wooded side gives a lot of shade.

The first photos were mid March, and by now the trees are bright green!

Last Saturday, more vibrant:

Easter table decor

We are having Easter at our house this Sunday. I don't think my decor will be as detailed and pretty, but here are some table decor inspirations!
