Home Sweet Home - Part 1

David and I are about to celebrate our 2 year wedding anniversary! Last year we decided to celebrate by taking a trip of a life time to New York City. This year we knew that with David's busy school schedule and with us wanting to save more money this year we decided we would take small trips and do house projects that we have wanted to do since we have been married.

David had roommates before I came along and so the carpet had seen better days after the 6 roommates came and left. We decided that we would invest money into new flooring that we loved and hopefully have it help sell the house in the future.

Here are the BEFORE Pictures:

Stay turned for the AFTER Pictures!!!

Happy Birthday Favorite Nephew!!!

Today was such a special day! My nephew is no longer in the single digits in age but in the double digits! Carter informed me that he was looking forward to the double digits because he is now a man and not a kid!

It's been a great 10 years and I'm so blessed to be his aunt! Happy Happy Birthday Carter-Man!

Mother's Day 2011

In January my Grandma told me while I was in Enid that she would like to come down for Mother's Day for a week this year. We were really surprised that she wanted to travel at 89 but we were so happy! It made this Mother's Day extra special!!!

We went to church all together and had lunch at my sister's after church! It was a great Mother's Day!

Like Mother, Like Daughter

Our church did free Mother's Day pictures! Thanks V-Life!

Belle wanted to dress up for Mother's Day... she looks pretty embarrassed now!

Holy Sakes Alive.... Barley Turned 5!

Five years ago David wanted to get a new dog and researched dog rescue centers. When traveling to Dallas he went to a Weimaraner Rescue Center. He had to go through an interview and application process and once everything checked out he was able to view the dogs. When he went to meet the dogs he had one in mind but after meeting the dogs one came up to him and was friendly so David fell in love! That is how Barley became Barley Green.

I met David 2 years after he got Barley. Barley didn't know what to think about this new person coming into his world but he is now a momma's boy!

Since Barley was turning 5 this year and 35 in dog years, we decided to throw him a birthday party. This was just a reason to have everyone over and order a cookie cake! It was a great night and I think that Barley loved the party! Happy Birthday Barley Boy!
