things coming up!

Andy and I had a great time in Dallas! The hotel, ALOFT, was so so nice and the weather was perfect (if not a little cold!). I’ll post pictures of the trip soon.

My Mom and her two sisters came up this past weekend and it was such a fantastic time! We shopped, ate, visited, and thats pretty much it! We headed up to the Shreveport area on last Saturday to visit with my mom’s first cousins and aunt. I had only met them one other time so I was glad to be able to go see them.

This weekend we’re heading to Mississippi! We’re going to stop by Starkville to see some friends, then heading to New Albany on Sunday to spend time with my family. I couldn’t be more excited! We just don’t get together enough and when we do get together its always, ALWAYS!, such a fun and wonderful time. On Sunday night we’re going to set up camp down by creek and spring on my precious grandparents’ land and camp out! Its always a bittersweet experience to go back to my grandparents’. Its just that I want them to be there too, its not the same without them and their sweet smiles and wonderful laughs.

The last weekend in May, Andy and I are heading up to TN. My precious “little” niece, Jacy, has her big final dance recital of the year and we’re heading up to see it! I haven’t been able to go to her spring/summer recital since we’ve been married, so I am really ready to see her do what she loves so much. I am so proud of her!!!!

As you can tell, things are starting to pick up for us. We’ve still got a trip to CA coming up and other things as well. I’ll share pics next week of Dallas trip and Memorial camping trip!

new bed linens & such

Oh, how exciting married life can be! Andy and I have been wanting new bed linens for forever. We’ve looked and debated for over a year. Yes, debated. Andy tends to like all things striped and plaid. And, well, thats not really my taste. So it has taken forever to decide such things! On Friday night we went and found a cheap bed-in-a-bag at WalMart. It was pretty nice but I wasn’t sold on it. When we got it home and got it on the bed, we realized the sheets were so SO scratchy. We have been really spoiled by fantastic sheets that I got a year or so ago on clearance. So, these new sheets were especially scratchy. Anyways- so we slept one night on the new bed-in-a-bag and decided we didn’t like it. Today we went to Target and found some WONDERFUL sheets that are sooooo soft, and a new quilt/coverlet for our bed. Everything looks so good and its been the highlight of the month to get new bed linens! How wonderful the simplicity of married life is at times! 🙂 Here is a picture of the new stuff!
