Seaside Pictures

Doing this post made me sooo want to go back to Seaside!  We had such a relaxing time with nothing to do but take naps and look at the ocean.  Hope you enjoy the pics!

The family at the best seafood hole in the wall EVER!!!

This is the downtown shopping district.  So many restaurants and shops.  

Oh my heavenly goodness!  Isn't this tree gorgeous?

A beautiful home right in the middle of the square.  Such a pretty porch

This church was beautiful!

Kailey and I having lunch.  There honestly wasn't a bad place to eat in this town!

Look at this catfish and fried whole okra!!  It just melted in your mouth

My sister will kill me!  But, how could I not show off that baby bump?  She looked too cute!
This was the cutest and smallest Post Office I think I've ever seen!
Hope you all have a blessed week!

Our trip to Seaside Florida

I can honestly say our summer has been a full blown crazy summer!!!  Between packing and moving we needed a vacation.  The only problem was, our vacation, that had been planned and booked since February, fell 2 weeks before we had to move.  Talk about stressful!!  Packing for a 7 day trip and packing to move into a new home was not fun.  But, once we got on the road, we were all about it!

My parents and my sister and her family came along with us and we had such an amazing and relaxing time!  We rented a absolutely GORGEOUS house about a 8-10 minute bike ride from the beach.  You will completely drool over this house!!  We were so blessed to get to stay in something so nice.  It was like we stepped in to a photo shoot of Pottery Barn.  We found this lovely place on VRBO.com and if you want more details on it just let me know.  So, enjoy some pics of our lovely vacation home!

{All of these photos were taken by my iPhone.  They may be a little blurry, so sorry!}

Incredible, right?  We couldn't have asked for a nicer vacation home.  We were in awe the entire week!!  I'll show you around Seaside next week.  Have a very blessed week!

Our New Home

So here is a picture of the front of our new home!!  This was taken before we moved in, and we've changed a few minor things.  But, nothing major.  We are so happy to be here!!  The open space is amazing, it took some time to get used to it, let me tell ya.  We came from a much smaller neighborhood where you walk out your garage and BAM there's your neighbor.  We are on a little over an acre, so we don't have that BAM feeling any longer!  My next post will be to show the kitchen and the transformation that a little bit of paint can make!  You know I'm a painted cabinet girl. 

The previous owners took such loving care of the house.  They were such a blessing to work with! 

That window is actually the 3rd garage.  The garage door is in the back of the house and that's where the previous owners kept their lawnmower and yard equipment.  It backs up to the 4th bedroom and we are going to combine both spaces and make a huge game room for the kiddos.  We are getting bids now for the project and can't wait to get started!!

I adore the stone on this house!  It's one of my favorite things about it.

This fountain feature actually works!!!  It is so pretty to watch when its on. 

Now for the part that REALLY sold us!!  The back yard is full of trees!!  Coming from a house where the only thing we looked at was a fence, the top of a neighbors roof, and 6 year old oak trees, this is a huge treat!!!!  We can see it from the kitchen, living room, and our master bedroom. 

I don't know what it is about trees that just makes me sigh.  My husband weekly tells me "Good find!  I love it here!"  He normally isn't on board at first for my finds, but when I showed him this house, he instantly fell in love.  Mostly because of that back yard.  Hey, whatever it takes, right? 
Hope everyone has a fabulous week!!  Pretty soon, hopefully tomorrow, my sweetheart of a sister will be giving birth to her 2nd baby girl!!  We are so excited!!  Keep Megan in your prays please!
Have a blessed week,

Do you miss me?

Well, have a taken a long enough break or what!!?  I can't believe it's been over 6 months since my last post! So much has happened in those months, I needed a little break. I started work at the salon, which is going fabulous, my sister is about to have her 2nd baby, we went to Florida for a family vacation, we sold our house and moved into a beautiful house!!!
Like how I threw that last one in?  I can't wait to show you all the fun things I've been working on. First things first. My husband HAS to hook up my computer! I don't like doing this on my phone. So, I promise to be back soon with pics and stories!

I did it!!

I did it!!  Hallelujah!!  I made it through Cosmetology school in one piece.  I'm so excited to get out there and start doing some hair.  Here's a look at my last day of school with my sweet friends that I will miss.

Here I am clocking out for the very last time!!

Sweet girls!  Brooke, Jordan and Tiffany

We all had the same apron.  Another girl had one too.  We always looked so funny on the floor!
