Spring is here!

Sorry that David and I have been a little MIA lately. Things have been super busy. Hi Dad!

For the past few weeks David and I have been painting our bedroom. It has been a real chore!

So, this is what our bedroom looked like before we started painting. It was just a little plain. David and I picked out a color called Mocha Syrup to paint our bedroom and closet. Yes, I decided we needed to paint the closet along with the ceilings. Poor David! He really does love me!








This is what our bedroom looks like now. We will be going to Thomasville this weekend to pick up some furniture that Dad is giving us. I think it will look awesome in the bedroom.

I ended up with more paint on me than the walls I believe.





While we were painting, we had to move our furniture out of our room. Everything has been upside down lately and it really stressed me out. However, Spunky loved having the bed in the hallway.




So, in the middle of the painting was Dad's wedding. It was beautiful. David and I had a lot of fun in Thomasville. For some reason I did not take any pictures. I'm not sure why.

I know that Dad and Tami are happy to be married and I know have two new brothers Todd and Tyler.

So, in the middle of painting and wedding spring decided to show up. Dad told us we could get a lawn mower for Christmas from him, but we never went to buy it. I've been looking at the yard for the past few days thinking, we really need a lawnmower. Tuesday was the straw that broke the camel's back. When we checked our mail there was a business card for someone who cuts grass! I wanted to die! So, Friday when we got off of work we went and bought a lawnmower. David was so happy.



This is what our yard looked like. Yes, I am embarrassed, but please remember that we have not even had time to blog!


Here is the new lawnmower. David loves it.



David worked on cutting the grass while I cooked dinner. I heard the lawn mower stop and popped my head out. David had already ran over a rock. It got caught in the blades. This is our luck!


Here is the rock after David got it out of the lawnmower. Our grass was so tall, he could not see it!

So, after dinner we watched Twilight. I was so tired that I fell asleep!

Saturday, I got up and cleaned house. Then David and I went shopping and had dinner at the Outback.

This morning I got up and had to meet Tara, Kristi and Dot in Birmingham. These are some of my sorority sisters that I just love. We meet at the Cheesecake Factory and had lunch. (yummy) We shopped a bit and I came back home. Yes, I did bring David some cheesecake.

When I got home, David and I worked on the yard some more.

Now, I need to fix us some dinner and go tape the master bathroom, so that we can start painting it!

Here are some pictures of the animals.

Where is that cat?

Tonight when David and I got home, we heard loud, sad meows. David kept saying where is the cat.

I dunno. I can't see thru walls....

He goes looking, and some how, that silly cat had locked himself in the guest bed room closet..

Pictures!



My puppy is so sweet when she is sleeping. David doesn't think so...He says Daisy snores like not one but two old people. She keeps him up half the night.






This is my Daddy. He is awsome!



This is our friend Joey. He was modeling his sweat pants and blazer. Stylin!



Daisy loves her Uncle Joey!




Mom this picture is for you. David was speeding! He tried to cover the speedometer with his hand when I told him I was going to take a picture to taddle.

Silly Cat



David's cat likes to curl up around his neck. He is always climbing up there no matter what David is doing. That cat is just silly.


Here are some more pictures left over from this past weekend!

Things that made me smile today!

Apparently, I'm last to the task as always. Today is a tough day to think of things that made me smile. My day started with David pouring Cheerios and milk on the floor. The day kept getting worse. I guess it is a good task though to pick the things that make you smile on a day when nothing went right.

So, things that made me smile today.

1. David reading over my shoulder while I'm posting this blog. He keeps making fun of my spelling. Thank goodness for spell check.

2. Diet Coke. Enough said.

3. Seeing David come out of his building after work today. I was really ready to go home and he didn't make me wait to long.

4. Seeing the left over spaghetti in the fridge when I got home. I didn't need to cook!

5. Daisy curled up at the end of the couch. She is such a sweet dog!

6. Baking a cake tonight. It is a diet sprite cake this time. Low points. Smile.
