Another Wedding!

Over the weekend Craig and I went to Kellee and Jason's wedding. For those of you who don't remember Kellee is a former co-worker of mine and Jason is my former supervisor. Also, you all may remember them from my wedding... as they showed off their "dancing" skills. Anyway, Kellee looked beautiful and they seemed very happy. Congrats!

The happy couple...

...doing what they do best... making out on the dance floor!



I FINALLY finished the upholstery project that I began OVER ONE YEAR ago! I kid you not... it really took me that long. Between work, the wedding, house stuff, and life in general it just kept getting put off. Well a few weeks ago I decided that it was time to finish the job. Let me refresh your memory...

Here is the chair before...
I took off the old, nasty black fabric to discover a layer of ugly red fabric...
I stripped the chair down to it's bare bones...

Then I recovered it in a nice, neutral fabric. Not bad for my first major upholstery job... except for the fact that I started the project in September 2006!


Weekend Getaway!

This past weekend Craig and I decided to go on a little road trip. We drove through the mountains and enjoyed taking in the fall foliage... unfortunately, the leaves weren't half as nice as they were last year.

We explored Asheville Friday night and Saturday morning. We enjoyed walking through town, taking in the sights, poking through the shops, and eating some amazing food. If you've never been to Asheville I highly recommend that you take time to visit some day!

Street performers... people from all over town meet every Friday night to drum together.

Dinner at Bier Garden where they have over 200 beers on tap!

Saturday afternoon we headed down to Greenville for Laura and Travis' housewarming cookout! The house was so cute (for some reason I stupidly forgot to take a picture it). It was so nice to hang out and catch up with them. All in all it was a fabulous weekend!


We're Number One!

I came home from work yesterday and to my surprise the neighbors had left a surprise in our yard. Low and behold, Craig and I have been dubbed the "Most Improved Yard." How funny is this!?! So here's the story behind the sign... Ever since Craig bought the house we've noticed a number of yards in the neighborhood being honored as the "Ridgefields Garden Club's Yard of the Month" or the "Beautification Award Winner." Meanwhile Craig and I were working VERY hard to fix up the outside of our home... replacing the front door, putting up new shutters, trimming back the monstrous bushes, and planting new shrubs/flowers. We wondered what the requirements were for being honored in the way that many of our neighbors had been.

So, a couple weeks ago our neighbors Ann and Taylor had this lovely yellow sign made to be placed in the yard of our neighbors David and Becky. I passed a comment to Taylor wondering what a person has to do to get a sign in their yard. Little did I know that we would be the next nominees!

So now we seem to have a new little neighborhood tradition. I guess Craig and I now have to wait for someone new to move in and put in some work to pass along the honor.
