Happy anniversary to a wonderful husband, father and of course the love of my life! I hope the next million years are as exciting, blissful, and great as the last three have been. I will always love you Natey Roy!

And so it begins... Those of you who know Nathan know he loves projects. Ever since we got married he has been promising me that he was going to build a bed frame, I of course didn't completely believe him but less then three weeks after moving into our new house... here it is! Now isn't he handy? Some matching night stands are next on the agenda, then a console table for the living room, a shelf for Caleb's room and the list goes on and on... but for now I will just enjoy my new bed.

Minute 2 Win it
Our good friends Jason and Whitney had a "Minute 2 Win It" party this past weekend to celebrate Jason's birthday. If you haven't seen the show you have to check it out so you to can recreate it for a party. We seriously had so much and laughed so hard. Everyone came dressed up and the creativity of the costumes was an amazing bonus to the night. I hope we do this again in the future. Thanks again Jason and Whitney!

p.s. I stole this picture from Whitney's blog.
Life doesn't get any better then cuddling with a sleeping baby... and this one sure is a cuddler.

This has been a very exciting year for us, Graduation, Baby and now a house! It took forever for us to finally get in but at last we are here and we LOVE it. Here is a quick little tour of our new home. Keep in mind we have only been here a week and still have a long way to go as far as home improvement projects, but of course if you know my husband you know that those future home improvement projects are exactly why we bought the house. Hopefully there will many future blog posts with all of our updates.

Here is the front of our new house.

This is the, throw all the extras/unclaimed/office/future craft room.

This is Caleb's cute room that he doesn't actually sleep in.

No post would be complete without a picture of this cute baby.

The guest bathroom that is in dire need of some serious attention.

The living room... this room needs so much help I don't even know what to say.



Master Bedroom

Master Bathroom

Dinning Room, eeek that yellow is pretty bad, especially in pictures. Don't worry it should be gone in the next few weeks.

Kitchen, great layout just needs lots of updates.

And there it is, a tour of our cute new home. This home needs some updates but it is a great layout, and is in an amazing location and was a fabulous price so we really couldn't resist!

This little man and I were having a great conversation about politics this morning, but....





I must have said something he didn't like.

What a great weekend. My Mom and her husband Robert came down for the weekend to meet baby Caleb and we took them all around to show them the best of Corpus Christi. We went to the beach to try and beat tropical storm Don that turned out to be nothing but a little bit of wind.




This was Caleb's first experience at the beach and he wasn't sure what to think of it. Nathan put his feet in the water and a huge wave came by and engulfed his whole body. After that he was not a fan of the beach or the water.
Next stop was the Texas State Aquarium. It was really busy and so hot but we still had a great time. We watched both a Bird show and a Dolphin show.


To finish out the weekend we headed down to the pool and spent some time swimming. Caleb loves the pool and we had to take advantage before we move next week and have to leave the one thing we love about our apartment complex.

Overall it was a great weekend, and we love having visitors. We move into our house this weekend so we will have plenty of room for visitors, hint hint.
