Turquoise piece is a Round Top find & the rest are mostly wedding gifts!
Finally got my painting from Peru hung!
Nathan gets all the credit for this cute little thing! He picked it out at an estate sale down the street from our house for $10. It was in pretty bad shape --- unpainted, falling apart, and really dirty! He cleaned it up & painted it. How cute did it turn out?!? Oh how far he has come since we first met. He has become quite the antique shopper!
The yellow piece was another Round Top find --- also used at the cookie bar at the wedding! I've had a hard time filling this corner & I think this did the trick. I am still thinking about taking all the frames down behind it...I think they might make it too busy. What do you think? Is it too much?
Now on to married life...
So far Nathan & I are thoroughly enjoying it. It has been so nice to wake up and fall asleep with my best friend! Every day brings a new adventure and something to laugh about. Last Saturday Nathan looks at me and asks, "Can we have corn dogs with mac & cheese for dinner?" Of course I said yes and we quickly headed to the store to purchase our gourmet dinner. (In you don't know, we don't EVER eat like this!!)
I grew up with Velveeta Mac & Cheese so that's what we got --- surprisingly, not as good as I had once remembered it being. Nathan grew up with Kraft so he of course wanted to prove it was better! It might have been better, until he entered the kitchen.... Things quickly spiraled downhill after this! He cockily made the mac & cheese and kept rubbing it in my face how great of a "chef" he was. That was until he put cloves in the Mac & Cheese instead of pepper!! haha It was disgusting but of course he kept saying it wasn't that bad and continued to eat ALL of it to prove his point! This story will now go down in history with My Dad's lemon peanut butter cookies that even our dogs wouldn't eat!!! Gotta love it!
As you can see we are really enjoying things so far!! I hope I don't regret that statement by the end of this weekend ;) We are heading to Sabinal to do an Extreme Makeover on his Dad's house! We are so excited but our personalities and differences always seem to come out during projects. Our biggest conflict so far has been over paint color --- fortunately my wise mother helped us pick one out to spare us the trouble! My parents also keeps giving us advice about starting such big projects after only being married for 2 weeks...
Oh man, should I be worried!?! haha I will let you know how it goes after the weekend!!
