So since we have been married I have been "playing house" and loving it!! Here are some pics of the house- still a lot of work to do, but we are so blessed to have it and are having so much fun working and making it look better!
I got this idea from a blog I follow called The Lettered Cottage. I spray painted the gold chandelier with oil-rubbed bronze spray paint. I then replaced all of the light covers...I couldn't find jute thin enough to add it to the top and bottom, so I just settled for the bottom. I hot-glued the strips on there, and it was ready to go! John was amazing and somehow knew how to hook it back up in the ceiling, and now it is as good as new! YEA!!
We had a great day celebrating John's birthday this year- July 5 fell on a Monday, so he had off for the 4th holiday. Everyone came over for a wonderful lunch, then we went and saw Toy Story 3! Fun day!!
The boys watching tv in our room with just mattresses :)
After we ate, Emily helped me decorate!! She is so good! She took me out back and we were collecting twigs for a vase her parents got us for our wedding :)
On Lindsey's way to Kamp Kanakuk this year, her and Lori drove through Alabama. Lori stayed with me for about a week, then my parents came down that weekend to get her, and celebrate John and my birthdays!
I made dinner for them when they arrived.
During this time, Seth had his wisdom teeth out...I loved helping him keep his "holes" clean :)
Pizza one night...
When my family got to Huntsville, we all got together and opened our wedding presents! What a blessing!!
