Our house
(Will be) a very, very, very fine house
With two (stray) cats in the yard
Life used to be so hard (?)
Now everything is easy (er, busier, more complicated) because of you....lalalalala

Our New House
I cannot wait to put up some before and after pics!  I am such an indecisive person, and choosing paint colors has been so hard for in, I can't sleep at night thinking about the different options.  Don't even get me started on what we should do with our floors... :o)

Dan and I are excited and grateful that we found such a great deal on this house!  Our mortgage is significantly less than the rent we have been paying (who knew this could be??).  Thanks already to everyone who has been SOO generous and excited as we begin this new adventure. We are truly blessed! 

P.S. This is a picture of what we came home to on our first day as homeowners.  Thanks Marv LaRue! :o)

Pink and Orange Wedding

A blog I read daily (well, it used to be daily until we said "bye bye" to our internet), Hostess with the Mostess , always has such good ideas for wedding and party planning. I love this pink and orange wedding because it reminds me of SPRING!

I love candy tables! They are so cute, easy, and cheap to do! Plus they add some fun to a wedding.

Love this idea! Too bad we live in a place where you have to be extremely brave to have an outdoor wedding!

Love the bridesmaid dresses. They look so comfy. Gorgeous flowers too!

Love this sweetheart table! Also, sidenote, we totally have those chairs around our dining room
table. It's like a wedding for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! :o)

Happy Spring!!!

Got Sandwich, Need Soup

Last summer I visited my friend, Rachel in Indy.  We went for lunch at a cute deli (because I LOVE sandwiches and of course was craving one) in Broad Ripple, and I had one of the best concoctions ever!  Here are some pictures of my finished product.  Read on below for the ingredients.

I wrapped the sandwiches in wax paper, then white paper (mine happened to be a roll of gift wrap I needed to finish off), and tied it with twine.

Easy, easy, easy!

Whole wheat bagel, toasted  (you could use bread too!)
Ham or turkey
Cream cheese
Honey Dijon

That's all!  Yummy and lots of good for you fillings, too!
