We are SO excited about being in our own home! We have been living at our new place a little over a week, and it is getting there. :) As you can see from all the rooms, there is a lot of space to fill up, and work to be done, but we are loving it.  So thankful to be home, and thankful for the blessing of making this house our home.

This spring break was a lot more low key than last year when we went to Hawaii, but it was still a great break.  It started out with a snow day...that's right, not winter break, but spring break.  We ended up with a little over 6" on snow to enjoy for the first few days of break, which was very unexpected.

Jason and I went and stayed in Pacific City on the Oregon Coast in a bed-and-breakfast (The Craftsman Bed & Breakfast).  Staying in one is something that I have wanted to do, and we thought it would be the perfect getaway before our little baby comes into the world.  It was such a cozy home, and our room and bathroom looked exactly like the pictures on their website.  We would diffidently recommend the stay to anyone wanting an escape for a night or two. http://www.craftsmanbb.com/
So cute when we pulled up :)
Our cozy room with robes waiting for us.
My favorite part of the room! I wish I could have taken the whole bathroom home with me.
While we were there, we were able to get out on the beach, and the sun did shine on us for part of the time.  But, you almost can't expect to go to the beach without getting some rain...our second night there there were weather warnings for high winds.  They were right. There were winds up to 80mph all through the night!

We also got out and did some sight-seeing.  We took a longer drive to get to our ultimate destination of the Tillamook Cheese Factory.  It was a much needed break, and really relaxing...perhaps our last getaway before the baby comes? :)
