Wall before and after!

I decided it was necessary to put our wedding pictures up on the wall. I mean we both had the best time at our wedding--it meant so much to us, not to mention we spent a fair amount on our beautiful pictures. Duh, get them up on the wall. Here is a before and an after picture (sorry for the crappy phone pic quality, I was too lazy to get my big camera out--also, ignore the dog toys in the picture. There are so many dog toys in this house that I don't even notice them until they show up in a random picture, lol).

This is just another step in getting our house to rise up to meet us--Nate Berkus told me that. ;)

Formal Shots

I thought I should probably post my favorite wedding formals. We had nearly 1500 pictures to sort through. Here are our favs:

Which is your favorite? We are trying to decide which to print and hang up around the house (I personally vote to just wall paper the walls with them all). ;)

Home Sickness?

It is a weird feeling to be home sick at almost 25 at home with your husband in the next room, but I think I am. I am more people sick, I miss my parents, I miss my sister and I miss my best friend. This is a bizarre feeling for me--I started going to sleep away camp in middle schools and have spent huge amounts of time away from any family without a problem.

I think this is work making me people sick. Lately (well all the time usually), all of my patients are either dying, being sent to hospice or are getting a diagnosis that I know they won't live through and it is actually bumming me out. Most people would think duh, who wouldn't it bum out, but in the 8 months since I've been an oncology nurse I've never really been bummed like this. It is just a weird emotion.

I adore my job, I adore my patients, but it is just starting to get me worried--what if my mom is re-diagnosed and this time without a good prognosis, what if, what if, what if. I want to go on more, but with the fear of a HIPPA violation sitting on my shoulder, I will close out this post. Hug all your family a little tighter tonight.

What I'm Loving Wednesday

This is such a fun post, I think by jotting down what we love makes us more grateful for what we've got. We all need a little reminder.

I'm loving my hubby--as always. We spent last weekend in Cocoa Beach visiting my parents. On Sunday morning my parents headed to the gym and the hubby and I enjoyed a walk on the beach then a swim in the pool. I love spending time with him, he's my bestie.

Here is a picture of us on Cocoa Beach on Sunday.

I've had a a whole week off work--it has been heaven. I have slept in, enjoyed snuggling with my furkids, rearranged and spring cleaned my living room, went to a baseball game and just hung out. I need to go back to work, do I really?

My Mama's birthday was Monday, I just adore my mom, happy birthday to her. I had such a good time finding her a birthday present. I mean it is hard to shop for a woman who has everything, so what did I do? I made a birthday basket. I started with a cute little wicker basket with a paw print on it (she can use it to hold the puppie's toys when she gets home), added a wonderfully soft throw blanket, a new tea cup, spiced chai tea from the spa I go to, as well as a new book and 3 little bookmarks--she was quite happy with her little surprise. :)

Wild horses. Last week, the hubby and I went out for a hike on Paynes Prairie. Of course going hiking I definitely want to see some wild animals, well it got even better when we were within arm length of a wild horse mama and her baby. I was in HEAVEN! (The baby even decided he'd smile for me and my camera.)

Lastly, I can't argue with this weather, neither could super. She enjoyed her head out the window the whole way from breakfast to PetSmart. Today the high is 80*, looks like I'll be heading out for a run. :)

I hope everyone has a wonderful hump day.

Furniture Revamp

I have really gotten into decorating and furniture redos. I am loving playing with all this stuff--don't get me wrong, it is really time consuming but I love looking at the after pieces, I feel a sense of accomplishment.

I had this little TV stand taking up room in my garage and I decided to give my furkids a little place to snuggle up. All it took was a little sanding, some paint and painters tape--that's all. I like it!

My Sister has an Etsy Shop

I am so excited for my little sister--she finally has an Etsy shop.

Her artwork is incredible, she is so diverse and incredible. I am going to post the link and if you feel like reposting it, please do, she can use all the plugs she can get.

Thanks girls!

Monthiversary #3

Today we've been married for 3 months. Yay for us.

We will be going out tonight, we've been celebrating each month and it is nice to have a prearranged date each month. Tonight we are going to Dragonfly Sushi which is a nice sushi restaurant tonight. Yum-O.

I am off for a week which is fabulous. We are heading to Cocoa Beach tomorrow to spend the weekend with my parents which will be so nice. We haven't seen them since Christmas, and Monday is my Mom's birthday so we will be having a little prebirthday celebration. We are heading Saturday to a Wine and Cheese festival and then Sunday we will be playing a round of golf. Should be fun.

I don't really have anything exciting to talk about, just wanted to post to say hey, so "hey!"

Little Check In

I have been such a bad blogger lately and for that I am aware. I have been coming down off the wedding high and adjusting to life as a wifey, life as a nurse, life just living--it is different when you step back to notice everything going on without you.

I have currently been really focused on remodeling. Recently, I have refinished an old TV stand, painted the bathroom ceiling and walls and replanted the front yard. We've been busy. I have been making lots of stops at Good Will and checking out what they have available for me to transform. I also went to an antique store on Monday and picked up some stuff for the Hub's bathroom. I need to post pictures up of everything (soon).

Other than that, not too much has been going on here. I definitely have baby fever which I am supressing because I am very logical and logic tells me that now is not the time to have a baby, I've got other stuff to do. In a few years we'll get to be parents, and guess what? We will be parents from that day forward, so I am trying to enjoy the time I have with my wonderful hubby, just the two of us.

How is everyone else doing?
