Christmas Cheer!

Christmas has made it to our house!

Christmas in the Air!

Our Bedroom


After hanging these awesome corner shelves, Matt was cleaning up. The drill started to slip and he tried to catch it with his knee and the drill bit snapped off into his knee which led to surgery a few days later.  It was minor, and he appears to be recovered nicely now.  But what a crazy, bizarre thing!

Thanksgiving at Home

What a great time we had Thanksgiving week! Lots of family time and traditions like visiting Macy's 8th Floor and Black Friday shopping.  We did a fun thing with our family and drew names to tell what we were thankful for about each other and gave a little gift.  And then Nancy bought us some soft indoor snowballs which was a blast!

Chicken Coop Treasures

Matt took this picture of me in the chicken coop and tweeted it out to Chip Gaines from my favorite HGTV show Fixer Upper that we were searching for treasures for our next fixer upper project and that I was in heaven.  And Chip tweeted back, "I can see why!" So that's my claim to fame! And yes, we did find a ton of treasures: great wood and other things (among them lots of dead mice. I screamed a lot in case they moved.)
