Aren't they cute?

Pickles has decided that she likes the plant basket - I think she imagines that she's outside. Cali still prefers boxes though!

Deck Part 1

We started our deck today! Roland, Jason, and Matt used the hole digger to dig 14 holes, and cemented the posts in. (Susan and I helped out as well - we made sandwiches, cookies, and offered the occasionally suggestion, whether it was asked for or not.) The deck will be 24' wide, and 20' out from the house. It will hopefully be finished later this month, and then we'll have a party to break it in!

Wedding Coordinators

Jason and I were wedding coordinators on Saturday. We went down to Bedford to help out a girl that I met on (a wedding planning website.) It was my 3rd wedding to do the day of coordinating, but the first one that Jason helped with - he was a pro though! We were there from 8am until about 8pm - we set up the outdoor ceremony site as well as the reception site (this included all of the chairs/tables at both locations.) We had a great day together and were proud of how everything turned out. Here is a picture of there ceremony site and a pew bow that I made (I was quite proud!)

Wow - I'm a "blogger!"

In case you haven't heard yet - Jason and I are homeowners! We bought our house and moved in around the end of July and love it! It's a 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, with a loft and another extra storage room upstairs.

One of our first projects was to start working on the yard - the grass is much greener now, thanks to lots of watering and some fertilizer. Now we just need to work on the landscaping.

We have tons of projects lined up for the house. We want to paint pretty much the entire inside, add carpet to the dining room, put in a kitchen island, build a deck, landscape, etc. It's going to keep us busy (and broke - haha!)

We just finished painting the master bathroom, and for our first time I think we did a good job! (We have my mom to thank for most of it though!)

Here are the before and after pictures!

We also just bought a new coffee table for our living room! The green square in the middle of it is just a little plate - my attempt at decorating. :)

Last bit of news, for those that haven't heard yet - Jason got a promotion at work! We're so excited - he's now the F&I (Finance & Insurance) Manager and he loves it.

Time for Project Runway!
