Day 5

Favorite quotes

"Be yourself; everyone else is already taken."
Oscar Wilde

"I am not young enough to know everything."
Oscar Wilde

I love most of Oscar Wilde's quotes.

There is a book out called Sh!t my dad said, and both myself and my sister wish we would have thought of it cause my father is not a big speaker but when he does talk you remember. My favorite quote of my fathers-

"I did not raise a dumbass I am not calling you a dumbass, but you caught a case of it from hanging out with your dumbass friends, so either knock it off or I will for you."
-Layne Byrns

Day 4

Day 4 is favorite book

I love all Candace Bushnell books,

Emily Griffin,

and Dan Brown when I wanna think.

Day 1-3

Day 1- Favorite Song

We love Texas country Music and Wade Bowen is someone I have followed for years and the hubbs love him to. This was our wedding song. I remember on a road trip early in dating, I was playing this song and hubs asked me to repeat it and he decided it was our song that he felt exactly like the song. So here is an acoustic version. The man sitting to his left on the screen is Kevin Fowler who also has some great music. I don't always like traditional country music now but there is very few songs in Texas Country/Red Dirt music I dislike.

Day 2- Favorite movie

I like so many movies but hands down everytime all time favorite

Steel Magnolias! I know every line every quote. I only wish I could have had Julia Roberts hair on my wedding day.

Day 3- Favorite TV Show

I know this is a cheesy show but I grew up with it and I still like it so sue me ;)

Plus they are saying it will be back this fall, but only this fall.....

Whoa Momma

So alot has happened since I last post. We were staying with my in-laws for 6 weeks while our house was being built because I did to good of a job subletting our apartment in Austin and we had to move within 28 hours from me putting it up for lease. Now out in the country where my in-laws live there is no Wi-fi, so we had limited internet.

But on July 29th I turned 30 and was in a bit of a funk. We were living in my husbands childhood room and I worked and just nothing was in place that I thought should be at 30.

Our closing on our house got pushed back 3 weeks. But after all was said and done we closed and got all moved in. And here is a few pictures from the day before we closed.

Welcome home

Our breakfast

We changed out the fridge for a big stainless one

Love all the cabinets

This is the front bedroom

I have many more but we are in the process of painting, changing all the light fixtures and plumbing and knobs so I will do some before and afters. We love it and have so much room but we have not idea how we have filled 4 bedrooms after living in one bedroom apartments for the last several years.

So that is the Reader's Digest of the last almost 2 months. I have some plans to be a better blogger I promise!
