What’s been happening

I’m a blog slacker.

I have started and stopped. Started and stopped. Started and stopped again.

What do the 2.5 people that read my blog want to know? Pre-wedding? Wedding? Post wedding? Moving? Whose moving? Courtney and Justin? Mom and Dad? Our friends who moved into mom and dad’s house? Work? Church? So many options.

Here ‘s a snapshot.

2 days prior to the wedding we were finishing up the front porch. I can’t seem to find one picture showing it’s beauty however if we back up just a little bit you will get to see the porch.

The bride comes down the road in a 1951 Crestliner. Her Papa is the chauffeur.

She arrives! I think she might be a little anxious. Look at her hands.

Her Dad was so proud. She is “Daddy’s girl.”

The ceremony

The Family sat on the porch on pews…how cute is that?

And the porch. Yes the porch.

The bride was beautiful, but we look pretty dang cute too.

Post wedding festivities has included:

Long overdue shoulder surgery for the Mr. He told me no pictures….I don’t listen.


The house is still a work in progress. I am looking forward to decorating instead of painting.  This is the parlor/storage room located in the very front of the house.


The laundry room is useable and  the rolling rack you see has only fallen over a few times.


This pile of lovely has been waiting patiently for a pantry.


Look! It’s a pantry being put in by a guy whose supposed to be wearing a sling.


And then there is all this. The receipts for a year long home renovation is staggering. So many warranties and manuals, rebates and returns. I’m trying to be organized but COME ON!!!

My beautiful white chairs are hiding under the towels.

Mom and Dad moved in last weekend. It’s been quite an experience getting everyone under the roof. Many truck loads, lots of friends who we could not have done it without them, many trips through the drive thru and not much sleep. We are however all living under one big historic house roof, finally.

I promise to stop being a blog slacker. I will get my act together.
