O' Halloween Tree

I know, I'm a lil late to still be talking about Halloween...but I was a lil busy while everyone else was celebrating the All Hallows Eve holiday.

I made sure to take a better picture of my Halloween Christmas tree...I know what few followers I have are absolutely dying to see it

My wedding was the day before Halloween and since we didn't leave for Ireland till November 1st, I HAD to take a family picture in front of the tree
Brian looks suuupppppeeeeeeerrrrrrr thrilled doesn't he??? Actually, Brian was a cat person waaaayyy before I was. And I am wearing my Halloween pajama pants as well. Perfect.

This is Howie trying to hide from me on Halloween, he didn't like his costume very much.
I promise, I will get a dog soon.

And while I was absent from the blog world, Ole Miss got a new mascot, The Ole Miss Black Bears. Frustrating. So now all Colonel Reb memorabilia will soon be collector items and antiques. Grrr... I should have bought the Colonel Reb Tervis Tumblers when I had the chance, this is what I think about the situation:

I think next year for Halloween, I am going to dress like Colonel Reb and Brian will be a black bear, eh??

Alright, I'll stop talking about Halloween. Pics of Ireland to come soon (as soon as I find my camera cord), Christmas decor, and hopefully a new bench for my front hall.
Happy Thanksgiving to all!

The Wedding is Over, Now What?!?

Well, since my last post I've:

-spent a weekend in Nashville
-been a bridesmaid in Cartersville, Georgia
-found a new kitten and convinced Brian to let me keep him
-Rented my townhouse out for 10 whole days during the WEG games
-had 2 wedding showers (3 in total)
-planned a wedding (really wish I splurged and hired a wedding coordinator)
-had my dad and his family STAY at my townhouse for 7 whole days before the wedding
-still continued to work 40 hour work weeks
-GOT married
-went to Ireland for 10 days (and managed to lose my new Father-in-laws camera)

And now I am in the process of trying to get some sort of order back in my life. I'm really only going to try to start blogging cause my good friend MC has dropped a few hints about it.

Brian and I were married on Saturday, October 30th and we were on a plane to Ireland on Monday, November 2nd. And do you know what I did on the plane?? I started writing my project list of things to do when we get back. AS IF just finishing all wedding festivities wasn't enough to keep my mind busy for AT LEAST a month. Nope. Projects are ALREADY in the works. Here's just a few items that I have on my list:

-paint front room light grey
-turn a hope chest into a bench
-finish gold frames picture collage
-find fabric to make curtains and reupholster chairs in dining room
-paint kitchen from bright yellow to tan
-find fabric for curtains in the master bedroom
-put new sink and toilet in half bath and tile
-tile floor in my new "JFD" bathroom
-paint craft room light pink

These are just a few that I CAN NOT wait to get started on. We are going to be very very busy this winter =)
