An update

To last night's post. Let me just say that my husband is AMAZING! He got home, I asked him to take pictures from the internet and make a banner for the blog... and he did!! I think it turned out pretty great. I'm glad he knows his photoshop. Then he finished the dining table chairs, so our house finally feels like a home (having a designated place to eat can do that). Man, I'm lucky.

Way Too Much Time

Let me just start off by saying that to set up this blog to look even half way descent took way too long. I need someone to teach me the tricks to a cute one. So, James' mom, Carla, found us a really beautiful glass top table and 4 chairs for only $50. The chairs were a little worn, but other than that... PERFECT!!! We finally have a place to serve dinner. So, what my brilliant (and maybe possessing a little too good of an interior design eye) husband suggests, is that we re-upholster the seat cushions red, paint the legs black, and keep the backs black. So that's what we've been doing with our spare time. Taking out staples, sewing cushion covers, spray painting chair legs, and stapling on new cushions. Needless to say, it looks amazing! I'm so glad I have such a handy husband who cares about aesthetics. I don't have pictures right now,(only one chair is completely done) but I will put some up soon so you all can see!!!
Well, I guess that's the end for now. James gets off work soon, so I should probably finish up the laundry and get everything ready for finishing the chairs. I'm SO excited!!!

The start of something great!

Well, everyone seems to be on the blogging train, so I thought I would hop on too! I always enjoy reading all of your blogs and keep thinking that I should start my own. I just haven't done it yet... until now!!! So, let's start with the basics. This blog will inform all those who want to know about mine and James' lives. You'll be able to read about our achievements, our losses, our fun times, and especially the random happenings that don't really matter but make us laugh until our stomachs hurt. There will be photos, of course, because photos just make a blog more fun to read. You'll just have to learn how to follow my stream of consciousness. I ramble and I jump subjects, but hey! It just makes me that much more interesting to read : ) So get ready everyone cause, starting tomorrow, you get to read all about my life!!!! (Be excited)
