Canton, Mustang, and More!

I went to Canton, TX today with some friends from work and, of course, we had a great time.  Who wouldn’t have a great time shopping around and laughing with your friends??  I went with not a single thing in mind and here is what I left with:
I have a bird problem.  This has been established.

I am thinking that I will paint this (not sure what color) before I put it on the wall.  What do you think?

These are super cute gift boxes and wrapping paper that was DIRT cheap!  We all know if there is animal print involved I am there.

I also got some jewelry making supplies that I bought in bulk, which you can’t get anywhere around here unless you go to Dallas Market Center.  So, I was excited about that, but you won’t be excited to see it because it looks boring.  But much needed for making cute stuff!

I have been LOVING my new camera and here are some shots that I took of Jeremy’s ‘new’ 1966 Mustang.  He is actually out in the garage with a friend working on it; imagine that.

Earlier this week I went to my sister’s house to finish working on some more furniture to sell.  While I was there she had a photographer over taking pictures of Lilly and Bella.  I am sure they will turn out adorable and I can’t wait to see them!  Here are a few pictures I got of Bella (Lilly was on a chair get all positioned at the time).  I am also posting some after pictures of the desk.  I don’t have any before.  Sorry!!

Long post with lots of pictures!!

Holidays 2010

First things first.  Check out the Christmas costume my friend and I made for Jeremy:

Amazing huh?!  It cost me about $25 to make.  And, I think it came out just adorable!

Here are a few pictures of some of our Christmas fiestas with both of our families.

My parents got us a brand spanking new camera!! WOOHOO!!  It is quite the learning process of how to take wonderous pictures, but we will get there.  A great friend is a photographer so she is going to teach me what to do.  Thanks, Arlene!

Here are a few pictures from when we went to Allison and Tyler’s house today.  They got the same camera and know way more than us, so they were showing us what to do before we started painting more furniture.  So excuse the messy look!

FYI…. go see True Grit!  We saw it tonight and we loved it.  Okay, off to get ready for bed.  I am going to CrossFit with Jeremy tomorrow morning.  Kind of nervous already!

It has been almost a month since I have posted.  I apologize!  I don’t think anyone lost sleep over it, but I will pretend that everyone was really sad that they didn’t get to read my blog every week.

Our lives have been crazy busy!  Thanksgiving was wonderful and delish.  Always fun being around all of our families.  The Thursday after Thanksgiving started our flooring process.  They look WONDERFUL!!  We love how everything turned out and we could not have been happier with the company we went with.  It’s Your Floors in NRH, Texas is a great contact if you need one.

We still need to get an area rug and then get our pool table put back together.  Then, our house will be back in order!  Yeah!

Jeremy, my hubs, Tyler, my brother-in-law, and I finished a bedroom set and they are currently up for sale.  We had a good time doing it and I think they turned out amazing!

Moving on…

This week has not been a great week for Jeremy and myself.  But things will get back to normal soon.  One positive about this week is that we think we have found some possibilities for our wood floors.

61K81-S6 61K83-S6 floor

They are all LM Flooring and are all just a hair different in shading.  I have my favorite and Jeremy has his.  We will see who wins out.  I think I have also decided to get a more custom area rug for our game room.  We are getting our floors at ProSource and they said we can pick out a carpet and they can make it into a rug.  Hello!  Options would be endless if we didn’t have a budget, but we do, so options are not so endless.  But I will have fun trying to make something work. 

Any ideas on good carpet patterns for a rug??

If I could pick to be as creative as someone, Amy Atlas would be the one!  You need to check out her website and her blog.  I LOVE her stuff.
