Dining Room Re-model

So over the past few months my husband and I have really made some changes to our dining room. A lot of them I was really unsure about, but it is starting to grow on me. I think it was just that I loved it before so much that I questioned why I wanted to change anything. I am trying to find a before picture, but here are some of the afters.

Fun travel plans for this year

So we have started planning some travel time and I am super excited. First of all we have booked our 1 year anniversary trip in April, which I cannot wait for. We are headed to Ft. Lauderdale for the night, then going to see our nephew for 1 night and then headed back to the spot where we said "I do" last year, the beautiful, serene beaches of Key Largo! Ahhh, I can see us laying on the hammock by the beach now. :)

Happy Valentine's Day!

Today is my first Valentine's Day as a wife, which is very special. I already received a dozen red roses and a beautiful new, shiny red Chi blowdryer and tonight we are going out for a romantic dinner, then home to cuddle and watch the bachelor. I love my life so much and I love my husband. Above is one of my favorite pictures from our wedding day and it brings back so many amazing memories. It is truely a gift to find your soulmate and I am so blessed to have found mine.

I wish you all a very happy Valentine's day and hope that no matter how you are spending it, you have hope either in the love that you have today or the love you someday hope to find.

Superbowl Sunday!

Hope everyone is watching the game tonight, eating some great junk food, drinking some beer, watching some great commercials and enjoying the half time show from the Black Eyed Peas. I am betting on the Packers- who seem to be the underdogs. Bought some squares and hoping for some good luck! Have fun everyone.

Fun Valentines Day Facts

Every February 14, across the United States and in other places around the world, candy, flowers and gifts are exchanged between loved ones, all in the name of St. Valentine.

  • According to the Greeting Card Association, an estimated one billion valentine cards are sent each year, making Valentine's Day the second largest card-sending holiday of the year. (An estimated 2.6 billion cards are sent for Christmas.)

  • Approximately 85 percent of all valentines are purchased by women. In addition to the United States, Valentine's Day is celebrated in Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, France, and Australia.

Valentine greetings were popular as far back as the Middle Ages (written Valentine's didn't begin to appear until after 1400), and the oldest known Valentine card is on display at the British Museum. The first commercial Valentine's Day greeting cards produced in the U.S. were created in the 1840s by Esther A. Howland. Howland, known as the Mother of the Valentine, made elaborate creations with real lace, ribbons and colorful pictures known as "scrap."

Putting my Bachelor fav's on the record!

Ok, so the season is really getting started now and we are down to 8 girls. I am listing my top choices in order...




So, the 3 above are super different, but I think all are great choices for Brad. Chantal is the oldest out of the women left and some of the others seem a little young for him. He is 37 ladies!! 24 is a bit young. Chantal-28, Emily-24, Ashley- 26...are the ages of all the ladies. Emily is so kind and so well spoken, she has an adorable little girl and seems very mature, so although she is young, I think they would be a good match. I am 26 and my husband is about to be 34, so I do think there should be some room there. Chantal gives him crap, which reminds me of myself, so I like it. Ashley seems like her and Brad have great chemistry and something just clicks. Who will it be?? Don't know, have to stay tuned!!!
