Christmas Decorations

We still want to add a lot more--especially outside. We'll definitely be hitting up the day after Christmas sales!


I made this wreath last year. Total cost-$3.

Our tree! Don't worry--we're adding a lot more ornaments. And we have a tree topper, but it got lost in the move...along with our stockings! hahaha

A little decor on top of the bookcase.



Excuse the mess. Meet the coffee table...its other alias is the place Jon throws EVERYTHING when he walks into the house. hahaha

Our pass through in our hallway looking into the kitchen.



Our family =)

Merry Christmas and bah ham bug!
Love, Reggie

Thanksgiving and Black Friday

It's crazy to think that this long weekend is half over. :(

Thanksgiving was great..as usual!! We were gone all day and I'm pretty sure Reggie missed us a lot. haha We even brought home left overs from Jon's mom's house so we had turkey literally all day long. hahaha

Friday (Black Friday to be exact) start bright and early for me. And even earlier for Jon--he left our house around 4:00 in the morning. I just can't bring myself to do that. I did that for one year and I will NEVER do that again. I did leave our house around 7:30 with one of my co-workers and her husband. I managed to get almost everyone bought for. I still have to finish my parents, my brother, and my best friend, Ash. And of course, I have to get Jon's stocking stuffers, but Kristy (said co-worker) and I have decided we're going to make it our tradition to get stocking stuffers when we get out of work on Christmas Eve. We did it last year and had so much fun! And got AMAZING deals! (Our kitchen dishes were $10 for a 4 person setting...on Black Friday they were on sale for $35...usually they are $49...SCORE!)

When Jon and I both got done shopping and after I scurried over to my parents to wrap the presents I had bought, we put up our Christmas decorations and put up our tree!! Reggie was NOT liking the tree..he barked at it several times yesterday. hahaha I'll have to take pictures soon of everything! I love having our own house to decorate! One of the many things I love about having our house together!

Tomorrow I'm having lunch with my best friend and then watching football and doing laundry all day. Just a nice, relaxing Sunday. A great way to end a great weekend!!

It's almost the weekend!!

Funny saying that considering today is only Tuesday. But oh well, after tomorrow I get a 4 day weekend!! WOOHOOHOO!!!

So far the cleaning schedule is going AMAZING. Instead of spending 4-6 hours in one day doing stuff, I spend about an hour a night doing it. I love it because I feel really motivated after I'm done..I feel like I accomplished something even after I got home from work. It's nice!

Soo excited for Thanksgiving!

I'm thankful for..
*my wonderful husband
*my family
*my friends, especially my boys after everything
*my job
*my coworkers (I met my PICs (Partners-in-Crime) there.)
*good music
*our house
*Reggie Monster
*our health
*texting (lol)
*inside jokes
*laughing

I could go on and on...

New "Gadget"

See the cleaning schedule? I used to be really good about spending all day Sunday cleaning our house but...well...let's not lie here. It's FOOTBALL SEASON. The only thing that gets done is laundry cuz I have to. lol So I decided to work a little each night so that way the house can stay clean. I put the overview in the gadget, but here's the breakdown:

Sunday-Misc.
-Laundry (including towels and sheets)
-Clean Reggie's crate.
-Clip Reggie's nails.
-Make grocery list/meal plan.
-Sweep porch.

Monday-Living Room & Hallway
-Dust everything (tables, accessories, fans, etc.)
-Clean windows.
-Vacuum.
-Vacuum couch.
-Sweep entry.
-Grocery shop
-Make sure all trash is taken out. (Tuesday is trash day.)

Tuesday-Kitchen
-Sweep/mop floor.
-Clean countertops.
-Clean fridge.
-Wipe down cabinets.
-Clean window.
-Clean microwave and stove.
(I do dishes as they are needed..usually Tuesday and Friday.)

Wednesday-Bathroom
-Sweep/mop floor.
-Clean shower, sink, toilet.
-Wipe down washer and dryer.
-Clean mirrors.

Thursday-Bedrooms/Office/Game Room
-Vacuum.
-Dust.
-Clean windows.

That leaves me Friday and Saturday to do NOTHING and Sunday is stuff I can easily do while I'm watching TV or during commercial breaks. This system seems to be working well so far...but it's only Tuesday. hahaha

Here's my update and my promise!

I'm sooo sucky at this lately!! I'm promising to get better! I even updated my layout. I was over the "too much stuff" thing so I made the background simple. I like it--it's less congested that way!
Okay, here's the update for you!!

This past Friday was the Luke Bryan concert. Jon got us tickets for our one month anniversary! It was amazing....well no I'm lying. It would have been amazing, but we heard terrible news just before the concert started. One of our friends had been killed in a car accident that night. So, the concert was bittersweet. But I tried to enjoy because I know that's what my friend would have wanted.

The past two days have been really hard for us. But I feel very blessed to have amazing friends and family and a wonderful husband to help get through this. This hasn't been easy but I have faith that it will get easier.

Here are some pictures from lately:





I love this picture of us :)


:)


Hey, Luke!! He's so tall!

The game of the year--who goes for it on 4th and 2?! Look how big our baby is getting!!

No more sicky, please!!

Jon was sick last weekend. I felt so bad for him. He was coughing and snoring so bad, I opted to sleep on the couch Sunday night (last Sunday rather) thinking that maybe that would help me to not get it...

Boy, was I wrong!

It started Thursday with a sore throat...I felt a little better Friday.

Then Saturday morning came, I felt awful! Sunday was even worse! :( I ended up not even going to work Monday and FINALLY today, I felt better. Not 100% but better.

Kleenex can thank me very much kindly for the....FIVE boxes I bought this weekend. And I'm on my last box....not...even...kidding. I should buy stock...

Weekly Menu tab

As you can see, I took away the RSVP tracker and added a weekly menu tracker! I want to start planning our meals weekly to avoid buying unneccesary things at the grocery every week.

Enjoy!

I'll be adding recipes on it as well!

Ah, the joys of home ownership!

I wish you could sense my sarcasm! The past 3 days were ROUGH to say the least.

Let's backtrack here:

About a month or so ago, I got up to make breakfast. I noticed water on the floor. I discovered the water was actually coming from UNDER the laminate. Our icemaker had leaked. We needed a new floor.

Cut to this past week:

Since we had to take out the laminate, then put the vinyl done, the job took two days. The first day, we got the laminate taken up, the floor prepped, the luan down, ready for vinyl. We were blessed because no water got down to our subfloor! Woo!

Friday, we got our vinyl finished, hooked the water heater back up. Everything seemed great... *dun dun dun*

First, I broke the deadbolt on the side door. My key got stuck in the lock because one of the pins had fallen into the lock. Then, I go to wash some blankets only to discover the dryer wouldn't turn on. It ended up being an easy fix, but nonetheless at this point. lol

Then, I went to put Reggie to bed and I hear water running, similar to water coming out of the faucet. I opened the door to the pantry where the water heater is--water was coming out of the water heater! One of the thermostats had moved..possibly when the water heater was moved out to put the new floor in. UGH.

We think we have it fixed. Knock on wood!

Enjoy some pictures though!

Happy Labor Day!

It's 7:00 P.M. which equals my 3-day weekend is pretty much gone. :(

That being said...this weekend was amazing!!

Saturday I managed to clean out my side of the closet and my dresser. I also cleaned the oven/stove, and did laundry. I cleaned the whole house too. I feel so accomplished.

We also went to the fireworks on Saturday night at Jon's grandma's. We brought them our wedding pictures to look through.

I did all of this while I slept in until AT LEAST 10:00 ever single day. Joyous!

Off to watch a movie with Reggie-Monster and dread when 7:00 hits in the morning!
