Let the Journey Begin!

I'd like to start from the beginning of journey so bear with me as I backtrack a bit.

Jon and I started out life together as husband and wife in Inlet Beach, FL, on April 24. If you want to hear how we got to that point, you'll have to check out our wedding webpage.

My dreams of the fairytale love finally came true! The dress was slightly different from when I was younger though. The following is a picture of me at age 5 and then 20 years later when I said "I do."


We had abnormally crazy weather with 30-40 mph winds and pending thunderstorms all day, but luckily the rain held off until we were making our exit and were on our way to enjoy our honeymoon in St. Thomas and the Virgin Islands. We absolutely LOVED or time in St. Thomas, St. John and the BVI and can't wait to return! If you're looking for a wonderful vacation spot, I would definitely suggest St. Thomas and the Virgin Islands. The food was the great, all the beaches were beautiful and everyone was so friendly. Plus you're only a boat ride from other islands, so you can island hop and not feel stuck at your hotel the whole time!


We are currently living in Enid, OK, where Jon is a flight commander for the 32nd flight training squadron. I am getting the house all settled and keeping our new puppy, Remington "Remi," company for the meantime.

Needless to say, he's grown very comfortable in his new home and has been a wonderful addition to our new family :)

He makes my heart smile :)

New Coffee Table

After more than a year of debate, I've finally decided on and ordered us a new coffee table! As mentioned here , there were several styles I was considering.  However, in the end the tufted ottoman came out on top.  Not only was it versatile, so it can be used for years to come, but it also will be good for when we have kiddos down the road.  I can't tell you how many people I know who have had to either remove their coffee tables for the safety of their kids' noggins or have had to add those tacky corner protectors.  I did not want to invest in a new piece only to have to stow it away down the road.  So this seemed to be the perfect solution.  And thanks to my Joss & Main membership, it turned out to be the perfect price too. I was all set to order a tufted ottoman from Ballard Designs.  I had already received a swatch sample of the fabric I selected and everything.  But a few days later, I got a notification from Joss & Main of a sale event called The Tufted C

Southern Gentleman Baby Shower

Last month I helped throw my best friend (we met in 9th grade speech class :)) Lauren's baby shower for her soon-to-arrive baby boy, Gunner.  The shower had a "Southern gentleman" theme complete with bow ties, silhouettes and gingham print.  Personal touches and family items were used throughout, including baby Gunner's dad's bow ties :) Gunner's daddy's "going home" outfit greeted guests at the sign in table, along with a framed "Southern gentleman in the making" print. A variety of centerpieces graced the tables with groupings of baby mementos, flowers and photos. An antique baby basket helped house the gifts. The drink menu consisted of milk, apple juice (one of Lauren's cravings), fruit-infused water and coffee. The menu was made of a variety of brunch goodies including fruit, doughnuts, muffins, shrimp and grits, breakfast casserole and a waffle bar.  And of course no shower is comp

Our Living Room Mood Board

Our living room is slowly but surely coming together.  The biggest To Do's are ordering a new media console, painting the room (which is unfortunately open to the dining room, kitchen, office and breakfast area which means lots of painting to be done!), order a few lamps and a console for the long wall behind the couch. I realize I haven't shared any pictures of our "new" house (we moved in at the end of last October) with you guys.  So here's a glimpse of the living room before we moved in. This is what you see when you walk in the front door.  The dining room is on the left, the living room is straight ahead and the office on the right. A closer look at the living room.  Florida loves their plant ledges...I do not.  You win some.  You lose some.  I also want to replace the tile around the fireplace.   A view from the back of the living room looking toward the front corner of the house. The room behind the half green wall is the office sans the Fr
