A girl can dream, right?

Ty and I have been looking at houses for awhile now. He swears he won't buy one until we are married so we aren't pay a rent & mortgage at the same time so I really don't know why we look but I. Am. Not. Complaining.

I am slightly obsessed with going on walks and looking for houses for sale. We love peeking in the empty ones and then rushing home to find them on the internet to look at more pictures.

Recently, I have been pinning a lot of ideas for our future home on Pinterest. I hope someday soon I can put all these ideas in our home! :)
I just LOVE this deep couch. How awesome would it be to nap on this baby? I can't stand when we watch tv or movies and can't lay down on the couch comfortably because someone is always laying weird & uncomfortable or falling off the couch. ha! This couch would solve all those problems.

Can you say Dream Kitchen?

Say it again. Dream Kitchen.

I thought this was precious for a kids bathroom!

Ty and I are not shying away from fixer-uppers. Many houses in the area we are looking in are old houses and if they haven't been updated, they will certainly be fxer-uppers. Ty & his dad can pretty much build or re-do anything so doing renovations do not scare me. How awesome is this transformation?
Stop. It. Dream Kitchen #3. Love the blue island!
Front Porch Swing. Ty knows good and well that if the house we buy doesn't have a front porch, he's building me one. ;)

Door to garage painted blue. LOVE. that door always does seem to be the dirtiest!

Love these colors for a master bedroom.

Another awesomely large & comfy couch!
What on earth did we do before Pinterest? Sheesh!

Pool Days

Christen's kids took swim lessons the past 2 weeks and wanted to practice so they have been over the past two days to swim at Aunt Kafween's pool! They've done so good too! Even Kate has entertained herself on the top step of the pool while her big brothers & sister swam! Aubrey & Luke have been swimming like little fish!!! Levi kinda just floats but that's ok ;)! 

I didnt get any pics of them jumping in but we also practiced jumping in the deep end & swimming to the ladder! 

This is what I got when I asked Aubrey to smile ;)

The princess loved the water!!

What? Your nephew doesn't sit on your coffee table while watching cartoons? :)

Melissa's Wedding

My best friend, Melissa, who I have known since high school got married on June 29th! Everything about the day was absolutely perfect and she looked unbelievably STUNNING! The venue where the wedding took place was beautiful as well! Her and her new hubby Matt are the perfect match and I could not be more happy for them. We prayed and prayed for Matt to come along and he finally did, at the exact right time. He is so good to her and they are just the cutest!

Melissa is so special to me. She is "my person" as we like to say (any other Grey's Anatomy fans??) and have been through so much together. She is also my running buddy and we have successfully trained for 5ks, 10ks, and a half marathon together, but in different states. :) I am so happy for her and cannot wait to see what God has for her & Matt's future!

Getting ready with the beautiful bride!!!

Ashley and I have been friends since we were about 5. I so enjoyed catching up with her that weekend!!!

A little bubbly before she walked down the aisle!

me & my momma!

How beautiful is she? This was right before she walked down the aisle!

My favorite wedding date!

Jessica and I have been friends since 8th grade. We can go months without seeing each other & never miss a beat.

Ty & I had SO much fun with Jessica and her boyfriend, Scott at the wedding!


Wish this picture wasn't so blurry!
We had such a great weekend celebrating Melissa & Matt! I am so happy for them and I was so honored to stand by Melissa on her special day!

Lighthouse Warmer

Just wanted to give y'all a link to the warmer & scent of the month for Scentsy! The warmer is "Lighthouse" and the scent is "watermelon mint" (sounds so summer-y). The lighthouse warmer is perfect for any lake house or beach house! 

Email me if you'd like to order!

Happy Tuesday!

Hello July!

It's been awhile...I've had a super busy end of June, beginning of July! Today is the first day in several weeks that I'm enjoying a day on the couch in my pjs! I wish it would stop raining so I could enjoy a day at the pool but a day on the couch is fine too! :) 

It's been so long since I've blogged, I guess I'll rewind to our beach trip to Pensacola with Ty's family! We had a great time and beautiful weather!! We enjoyed the beach, took walks, played games, went paddle boarding (until we spotted tons of jellyfish), went kayaking (until I got sea, soaked in the sun, and devoured some seafood. I managed to get some runs and walks in and ended up meeting my 56 miles in June challenge only cheating a little with including our mile long beach walks! ;) 

Can't beat sunsets on the beach!!!

Enjoying dinners at the beach! 

Ty paddle boarding! 

Playing games! 

While we were gone, this little one was boarded (against mommy's will)...

She was with Poppy (Ty's parents' dog), which made me feel better but I still almost cried leaving her! I was so happy to see her face 10 days later!
