Bowling Green Visit/Snow Day

Last weekend, we headed down to Bowling Green for a visit. We made our first stop at the Snyder's house. We were able to have some of Jill's YUMMO speghatti and hang out. It was most definitely a great time and they suprised us with having Ann Marie over to visit also. We made home base at Andrew's parents house and they woke us both mornings with a delicious breakfast. Saturday morning we made our way to Emma G's ball game and to hang out with the Gilliam Family. Emma and I played the face game while Megan was horseback riding and Andrew was talking.
Then, we headed to a WKU game with Lindsay and Andrew Bragg and Andrew's parents. WKU did not impress us, but it was a great time non the less. Later in the evening, we met up with our friends Katie and Alex for some dinner. After some Wii with the 'rents, we went to bed to get up early for church. We got to see a lot of friends at church before we headed home. When we go to Bowling Green, it's always SUPER busy trying to see everyone. We miss everyone there and only have so much time to visit. God has truly blessed us with such great friends and family. FAST FORWARD............................................
This weekend, we hung out with friends from our small group Friday night and drove home in a winter wonderland. We thought we were getting 1-2 inches of snow and woke up to 7!!! YAY!! We took the dogs for a walk and played with the neighbors outside. Then, Chris and Mindy made us dinner! We have awesome friends remember. Below is our house in the snow.
I am looking forward to a great week. I got some new books delivered Friday from Barnes and Noble, so I have some reading to do! YAY!

weekend painting project

Yes, we painted our bathroom. Since our house is new, we have very little, I decided to start with the bathroom. I have been looking for a shower curtain for quite some time now. As soon as I found one, I was going to paint and decorated around that. I usually don't frequent Wal-Mart, but last week, I ventured in and found THE ONE! Later that night, I went to Kohl's and spend an hour looking at towels to match. I had $40 in gift cards, so I didn't have to "pay" for the towels. Then, I ran over to Home Depot and spend LOTS of time trying to find just the right color. The poor man working didn't know what he was going to encounter when I came in that night. So, about an hour later and other gift card purchase (the gift card here was a VERY late wedding gift, always a nice surprise).
When we got home from Atlanta at 8 pm on Friday night, I was SOOOO excited and wanted to paint right away. Andrew had different ideas...."game time" was on the top of his list. But, being the amazing husband that he is, we painted coat #1. Saturday night, we ran by Kirklands to look for something to put on the wall. I left Andrew in the car (for a good reason) I was like a kid in a candy store. I found SO much stuff, I finally deicded and spend less than $30 on all of the decor in here!! Then, we went to mom's to play some games. We stayed until 10pm and guess what we did when we got home...Coat #2. Then, Sunday, all we had to do was a little touching up next to the ceiling and putting up the curtain, pictures, etc. and TAA's done.
