Catching Up!

So... I want to take a breather from the pre-Christmas chaos going on here at Eventually Cottage to catch you all up on what's been going on here.

This past Sunday, Princess Maddy was baptised. Prince Charming and I are her Godparents and couldn't be more thrilled!!!

The Princess' gown was custom made from her Mommy's wedding gown. It was soooo beautiful!!!!!!!

We love this little girl sooo much!

As I told you previously, we were all set to bring our puppy, Lexi Lu, home for the holidays. Unfortunately, about 3 weeks ago, she had a bad reaction to her vaccine and passed away.

Needless to say, we were heartbroken.

We gave it some thought and the idea of giving a needy dog a home for the holidays was overwhelming. I had fallen in love with a pup at my friends shop where she adopts out needy dogs. I couldn't get this pup out of my head.

So...Miss Daisy came home with us! She's a 9 month old Plot hunting dog. Unfortunately, she has spent her entire life in a crate, so we are having some issues with behavior. I know she'll get past it with some guidance.

Miss Daisy has made her self right at home here at Eventually Cottage. We just love her!

I also mentioned that we've decided to totally re-do our family room. I had just gotten tired of EVERYTHING in it!!!

So, we found and purchased new flooring for the room. It's beautiful Brazillian Cherry hardwood. I had always been against cherry because I knew that it probably came from the rain forests and thoguht it was terrible for the environment. However, it's just perfect for the room.... please don't hate me.

We also ordered a new sectional for the room. I'm now looking for the perfect chair to go with it.

We're hoping to start the project right after Christmas. I'll take plenty of pics and will be sure to keep you all updated!

I have yet to wrap a single gift... yes, you heard that right. Not a single gift! Lucky for me, I've bribed Josie and her BFF with cookies and hot cocoa and they will wrap for me this evening. SCORE!!!!


  1. I'm sorry about Lexi Lu, but thrilled you've given Daisy a loving home. How exciting to be doing a remodel! You know we all expect pictures!

    Have a very Merry Christmas!


  2. She is a cutie! I love the idea of using the wedding dress to make her gown. Amazing!


I loove me some comments! Hugs!
