Yesterday we celebrated Adrienne Barrows’ birthday. She was born by c-section after 29 hours of labor. And she was perfect. I’ve posted just a few pics below. We should have more in the coming days.
As part of our continuing remodel/redecorate efforts, Kierra and I decided to repaint the Kitchen. Kierra chose a navy blue that accented the natural finish of the cabinets. It looks great!
Below are some before and after pictures of the Kitchen.
Over the last two weeks we finally finished redoing our deck. That is, staining it and adding deck furniture. It came out pretty good. So we thought we would post some pics for people to see.
Pics taken on Easter Sunday.
This was our first Christmas together after being married. Jamie had the whole week off and also was able to get the following week off as well.
Jamie and I decided to open our gifts on Christmas Eve since we knew we were going to have a busy day on Christmas. And we would be traveling the following week.
Christmas morning we spent over to the Barrows’ house exchanging gifts with the family. Afterward, we watched a movie and had dinner. Later that evening we had met up again and played card games.
On Sunday we drove to Atlanta to catch our flight to Frozen Tundra of the North (AKA Ohio). We made our connection with no problems at all. And the flight was uneventful.
When we landed we were greeted with an inch of snow and more coming down. It’s about a 45 minute drive to the Long family home. So the continued snowfall was a bit of concern. But made it safely and thankfully we were in a 4 wheel drive vehicle. So despite the snow, we were able to drive up the driveway. Otherwise, we would have had to walk all the way up in the snow. There were many activities planned for the week and the whole family trickled in over the next few days. Each day it snowed a little more.
On New Year’s Eve we exchanged gifts and then sat around and visited with each other. Later we played with the nephews until it was time for the ball to drop. Jamie and I had the privilege of staying up with our nephews Landon (5) and Layton (3) to bring in the 2010 Year!! The next day was the Traditional Christmas Dinner with the Long family and Mr. Keith.
Saturday everyone headed out. Each going their separate ways back to their homes. We drove from Ohio to Atlanta on Saturday and then Sunday we headed back to Florida looking forward to warmer weather. When we arrived here we found out it was going to be a cold week and every day it was to be below freezing at night. So I guess the cold followed us home.
Since the downstairs bathroom came out so well, we got inspired to do one of the Upstairs bathrooms. And I must say, it came out very nice indeed.
Just before we got married Jamie remodeled the master bedroom and bathroom. That took a lot of time. Mainly because he was working a full time job and could only work on it on the weekends and at night. But it turned out really nice and we are both very happy with the way it looks. That was all Jamie was able to get done before I moved my stuff into the house.
Since we have been married we have been enjoying our time together and taking the decorating and remodeling slowly. Jamie works at Columbia Southern University and I stay home and keep up the house. We have been steadily fixing our house the way we want it, but it takes a lot of money and time to get what we want. Recently we finished the remodeling and decorating of the downstairs bathroom. You can check out the pictures here.
In the past month we have been traveling a lot to see my family. We went to visit Tavis and Kendal in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. They, Tavis and Kendal, had just adopted a little girl named Karsen. Also we went to visit Kaelah and Lew in Atlanta and carry on our tradition of having an Early Thanksgiving with them. It has been fun traveling and seeing everyone.
That’s all for now. Keep checking back because I’m sure we will post another update soon.
I was a little slow on posting these, but here they are. This is just a small sample of the wedding pictures we have. If you want to see more, then you will have to check out the pics on Facebook.
As part of getting ready for the wedding, I’ve been scanning a lot of pictures from our childhood. Here are some of the ones I’ve scanned.
Well, Kierra and I went to the World of Coke the other day. We had a great time learning about the history of Coke. I especially liked the sampling room at the end that lets you sample coke products from all over the world.
