bored at work

Never gets old:


Isn’t she adorable :)

if you know somethin’ well, you can always paint it but people would be better off buyin’ chickens

Thomas and I have been spending weekends working on his house – so here is a status update. We have painted like crazy – green in the kitchen/master, burnt orange office. Then on top of that, off-white on every. single. wall. We also installed all new cabinets in the kitchen, new flooring in almost every single room. Pretty much tore his house apart and slowly putting it back together. Hopefully the majority of it will be completed by Labor Day weekend – and then move TK in soon thereafter. It is such the perfect little house – I’m sure that we will be having a house warming party soon!

my day just un-improved

damn WB. 

I realize that was announced over a week ago.  I have just been in mourning since and unable to fully come to terms with the fact that I will be waiting even longer for HP.  And I got so excited about the trailer!  What a tease…

make me the breath of God

“…once you’ve traveled to other countries and actually lived with the people there, you realize that God isn’t American. Nor is He white, or republican or vegetarian or Baptist or Pentecostal or Texas or fire and brimstone. You can’t recognize God with your physical eyes. You can only see him with your heart…He turned my world upside down so that I might land upside right, feet hitting the pavement, and running fast with a fierce grip of freedom. I’m learning that God doesn’t come to shatter us necessarily, but rather the false things that hold our hearts captive. God only moves things out of the way that we might be free; and live life fully alive…”

I am so blessed.

my day just improved

goings and comings

Wow, it has been too long!  I don’t even know where to begin.  I guess to start, I will sum up my summer! Thomas and I went on a fabulous vacation to the beach!  It was amazing weather, the surf was beautiful.  Most importantly, I did not get sunburned!  We played plenty of volleyball, read a couple of books… so relaxing.  I love this family tradition and cannot wait to go back next year!

Me and Thomas

Me and Thomas

After vacation, we headed to Amarillo to see my new niece! Libby Kate is absolutely beautiful and looks exactly like my brother.  That brings the count up to 5 little ones in the family under the age of 5 – they are all precious children that I just cannot get enough of.

The week before Amarillo, however, Thomas closed on his very first house! It’s in Cedar Park and perfect. I love it. Currently, we have been spending our weekends painting, installing, and demolishing, though not in that particular order. My favorite room right now is the kitchen – it is absolutely beautiful. When it’s officially finished, I will be sure to take a bunch of pictures. Though I can’t speak for him, I’m going to say that Thomas’ fave room is the burnt orange office. Just a little obnoxious. We couldn’t help it :).

Yea… so my weekends are fabulous but my weeks are just as great! I have been keeping so busy up at work. The project I’m working on just moved into the design phase which means so much more detailed work and rework. It’s so interesting though and it keeps me busy and my days very full. I am just so very blessed to have such an amazing job that I really enjoy (you know, minus the being located in Houston… but that’s a different story).

Sadie is begging for her walk – oh she is doing wonderful too! – so I better wrap this up for now. 


trying it again

Due to unforeseen circumstances, I decided to trash blogspot and move on to bigger and brighter things!  I’ll be working it later once I catch up on the Olympics (and last week’s Project Runway)… Going shopping now, or maybe just cuddling Sadie and going to bed.

More to come lata…
