About Us

My photo
The purpose of our blog is to share our journey through life with family and friends while we leave our mark on this world. Our 20's have been very kind to us and as we enter the 30's we are hoping to continue to enjoy our time in this thing we call life. I should have called this blog "Traveling through Life".

In the Shadows

So this is the latest look for our pergola. We added four angled pieces to give it more of a mediterranean look. The new pieces also made a perfect spot to hang flower baskets off of. Sorry for the shadows but I only seem to remember to take photos at this time of day.

And finally after weeks of waiting for this puppy to go on sale we have our patio set.

To celebrate the ownership of my first ever patio table I made yummy Vegan Zucchini Bread......well not so much to celebrate but because the zucchini was starting to go bad :) Bad zucchini is great for baking though!

Love the You that God Made

Every year around this time I try to be all summery and do my hair in that wet beachy crunchy style......it always fails. For some reason I thought this year would be different because I bought a new blow dryer and it came with one of those diffuser attachments. What was I thinking. It always looks like either I just got out of bed or a bird's nest.

So even though I learned at a young age to accept the long legs I would have to shop for the rest of my life, it took me 20 years to accept that my hair will always be straight! Don't get me wrong I love my straight hair b/c it is so easy to manage but sometimes a girl wants to mix it up. And by the way "perm" is not a word that we talk about. My mother probably learned when I was 8 that a perm would only happen once on my hair.

So straight it is 4-ev-ver!

This is what Cody thought of all my bathroom photo taking nonsense........

Concert of the year...so far!

So even though I had every intention of going to several great concerts this year I just couldn't manage to swallow the price of tickets. It's getting ridiculous. But I couldn't pass on going to see Mr. Brad Paisley and I am so glad I didn't. This is the 6th time I have seen him and it gets better every time. I joined the fan club this year just to see if I could get better seats and these turned out to be the best seats we have ever had! I mean look at them.....you can't get any closer. He did a great show and I felt like we were the only ones there because we were in the second row from the runway. I am definitely renewing the fan club membership next year.

(By the way I did not use the zoom for these photos!)
