Happy 31st Josh!

We had a fun day celebrating Josh's birthday! We got up early and I made cinnamon rolls and coffee (and used our "You are Special" plate - thanks Jen and Becky) before Josh headed out to a meeting! He was able to stop by his Nana and Grandaddy's house for lunch and visit with them as well as Becky. I surprised Josh (well I guess I ruined it a few days before - not sure who I would get that from!!!!) by taking him to Pappa's Bros Steak House in Houston. All I can say about that place is AMAZING!

I am so blessed to be Josh's wife and can't imagine celebrating with anyone else! Happy birthday, love!

Night out on the Town!

Mom and I enjoyed a girls night out Monday! Thankfully she made it to Houston during rush hour traffic! Off to dinner we went, then to the Hobby Center to see the play Little House on the Prairie (don't be too jealous, Dad!). Always love getting to spend time with her!

Makes my heart Happy

Don't you just love those small little things that make your heart happy [as in giddy happy]? Here are a few that come to mind lately...

Personalized Stationary by Oh Louise!

Non-fat Iced Vanilla Latte [my morning lifesaver!]

Liberty of London line at Target

Sunshine and the warmer weather [and yes, Finley girl too!]

Sno Cones!

Flower gardening [possibly a new hobby?!?!]

Sweet Saturday Surprise!

My sweet husband came home with these yesterday ~ white rocking chairs! Go ahead...you can call me an old grandma! It's exactly what I've been wanting to complete our outdoor make-over! So the next time you are in The Heights area, you'll know exactly where to find me!

Scraping, and painting, and landscaping, oh my!

As you can see below, we took on yet another home improvement project! We began working on the exterior part of our home this time. I began my Spring Break by driving all over The Heights trying to find the "perfect color"! After many trips to Sherwin Williams, I finally picked out the tiny paint samples that were going to cover the WHOLE house. Whew....what a task! It has been quite a project, but we are almost complete! It is a dramatic change, but we love the way our home has transformed over the past month. We still have a few more things we would like to do with the porch, but after that, I think we will finally be finished! Here are some before and after pictures!
