Wedding Planning!

So our "Family Friendly Couples Shower" is coming up (18 days to be exact, but who is counting?!?! lol) and I am SUPER excited! I really want to make sure that all the kiddos have fun at the party too so I have picked up a couple things to keep them entertained! If you are reading this and are planning on bring kids, please feel free to bring ANYTHING to make them have fun and be more comfortable (jumpers, play-yards, toys, or games!)

We are going to take Connor this weekend to pick out all the drinks for the "kids cooler"

They are inflatable, so they aren't too dangerous... right?

Since we couldn't have the shower at the bowling alley I thought we could bring the bowling to the shower!
Hopefully my Mom will share and let the little kids play a couple rounds of her favorite game!!! lol

Wedding Planning!

I am super excited... I just ordered 3 beverage dispensers for the wedding showers and reception. I wish Tom and I had a larger house, I would LOVE to be one of those couples that entertains a lot. Our home now is just WAY too small! But, after a couple of years and Tom and I buy our first home I hope to get a lot of use out of these!

The Main Ingredients "La Palma" Beverage Dispenser

Bring old-fashioned charm to your summer entertaining with this beverage dispenser, crafted of recycled green glass. Holds 2.75 gallons; hand washing recommended. Only at Dillard's.

I don't know what in the world got me started LOVING mason jars, but I have become a HUGE fan! lol (How weird is that, right?!?!) Did you know that most jars sell for only a few dollars, some have sold for as high as $30,000! The value of a jar is related to its age, rarity, and condition. Pretty sure I am not going to pick any of those up that the lighthouse (a local thrift-store) where I can usually pick up a couple a week for about .50 each!

Wedding Registry!

We have a little shop here in Marshall called "Square Corner" its located on the square and Tom and I are registered there. I ran up there before eating lunch with Tom to get a very special 1st birthday present for a very special little girl named... EMERY!

I may be slightly bias since she is my BESTIE's daughter, but is she not the cutest one year old in world!!! Lol Anyways back to the story… I saw one of these message boards in the store and I love it!!! The only problem is that the Square Corner only has 2 choices of colors, both having pick in them! I am not really a pink kinda gal, and I know that Tom wouldn’t really appreciate pink in our kitchen, so I got online and found these!

I have found lately that I am loving Vera Bradly! I love all three of them, I just wish that they had a bigger selection at the Square Corner so we could put one of these on our wedding registry up there!

I have a secret addiction...

I have to come clean... I have a closet addiction that very few people know about. I am a HUGE fan of the TV show "Dexter" Dexter Morgan, Miami Metro Police Department blood spatter analyst, has a double life. When he's not helping the Homicide division solve murders, he spends his time hunting and killing bad guys who slip through the justice system. Tom even ordered Showtime for the next 3 months just so I could watch season 4 while he is busy during harvest! Lol

Sorry I know that it has been a while since I have posted anything but life has been a little crazy since these guys entered our lives:

Maddie and Duke welcomed 11 little puppies on May 20th. We lost 2 during the birth but have had 9 little puppies running our lives for the last 8 weeks! We have decided to keep one... "Rex" here is his growth over the last couple months!





*Notice his stripe on the top of his head is almost gone

Wal-mart chairs and a box of wine...

Call me a hick,
Call me a redneck,
Call me whatever you want
Just don't forget...
Call me HAPPY!
There is nothing better in life than this! My dog Maddie, a glass of wine, my new home, and a beautiful sunset!

So what if it's boxed wine and a Walmart chair, it makes this country girl happier than a pig in mud!

I LOVE being outside! Since the weather has been getting nicer Tom bought me a couple things so we can enjoy our yard a little more!

Life is Good!

Life in the country!

Honestly! Two snakes, one bird, and a gutter is WAY more than this newly country girl can handle!

So a little background info will help you understand this story a little better… First of all, I have a HUGE fear of snakes I am really trying to work on this since I am going to be so exposed to them now that I live in the country! My passion for photography is actually helping me out! I just had a revaluation this morning that I shouldn't get upset when I see a snake, I should look at it as an opportunity to photograph such a feared species! With that said the second part of the story is my beloved lab Maddie, who is very much in heat at the moment which is a huge pain in the ass since Duke (Tom’s dog) cant stop “hit’n that shit!” Lol Sooooo with all of that said this is where my story begins…

I was let Maddie out this morning and was walking around the yard with her when I heard a strange noise coming from the downspout of our gutter. We have a pipe buried that directs the rain water to a nearby creek that runs by the house. I walked over to the downspout, gave it a little tap tap taparoo and a desperate animal was scratching like crazy trying to make its way back up the downspout to safety!

I (obviously) was not going to attempt to unlatch the connection at the ground and set the little critter free. But, I could’t bear the thought of the helpless little animal dying in there! So I called Tom! Lol luckily he was on his way by the house in his company vehicle…

He walked right over to it, and in one smooth action gave it a quite little tug, and swiftly removed himself from the action! With that a folded up snake was revealed!

Only the quick swift tug didn't open the passage enough so Tom decided (for precautionary measures) that a long poking devise was necessary. He went inside to fetch a broom and a blackbird came shooting out of the spout!

Me, being scared shitless as this was the last thing I expected, ran like hell for the safety of the nearby fence. Only to have Tom walk up and point out a little friend just hanging out only a few feet from me!

Tom used the broom and knocked the remaining connector completely off, and the snake headed for the safety of darkness.

Tom then hopped back in the company vehicle and headed on his way. Ahhh the life of a country girl…
