For this post, I’m going to be linking up to A {Little} Dash of Ash’s Instagram Linkup party (starts Monday)!  The rules are quite simple, just write up a post and include your favorite Instagram photos from the week.  Well, unfortunately I don’t have an iPhone, but Ashley said it’s pretty much open to any camera phone photos (yay – I have an Android)!  So for all those Android users out there, so far my fave “Instagram-like” app has been the Retro Camera.  There’s a variety of camera options that all have different effects.  Anywho, here are a few photos from the past couple of weeks, and I’ll let the pictures make the Announcement I have to share with you all today!

Totally been craving coconut water and fruit salads lately, thank goodness for HEALTHY cravings to curb the once in awhile fast food!

And here’s our BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!  We just bought a new house and are in the process of renovating it a bit before we move in!  Yup, so much going on over at the A La Mode household these days.  With a new baby on the way we thought that it would be the perfect time to upgrade to a bigger house.  We’ve spent the past few months looking at house after house after house until we finally found the perfect one!  It’s a 1.5 story, 4 bedroom, 3 car garage house with a walk out half finished basement.  we’re currently in the process of adding more hardwood floors to the dining room (as you can see in the picture on the right) and then restaining/refinishing the floors.  We’re planning to get the carpets cleaned on Friday and then finally move in on Saturday, lots going on this week!  I can’t wait to share more new house pictures with you over the next few months!  🙂  I seriously don’t have the best eye for design though, I wish I could have someone come over and design the whole place HGTV-esque for me, a girl can dream haha.
