Marley... again :)

 A daughter is a little girl who grows up to be a friend.  ~Author Unknown

One of the things that i am most thankful for is that God gave me a daughter first. She is my best friend... and although that may change a few zillion times, i love the idea of having the relationship that i have with my mom with her someday. Love this little thing!  


For you see, each day I love you more
Today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow.

New Shtuff

Marleys new vintage rocking chair
Emily Dickinson, Ernest Hemingway, and an amazingly "grandma" picture
I got a magnifying glass... finally! 
Marley loves her new little toms!


There is no surprise more magical than the surprise of being loved.  It is God's finger on man's shoulder.  ~Charles Morgan

My hubby and i went on a date to Extraordinary Desserts in San Diego after laying by the pool all day and shopping around IKEA. Even though we love having Marley around, it was so amazing to spend some time just the two of us. Over a cup of the best latte i have ever had and a chocolate cheesecake brownie, we reminisced about all our adventures and memories together. We have accomplished and grown so much over the last two years and i am so amazed by God everyday for creating us sooo perfect for eachother.

Fathers Day

For Fathers Day i threw a little dinner party at our house. I made a "man" inspired menu... ribs, bread sticks, twice baked potatoes, and because every male in my family loves bacon, i decided to try making bacon salad bowls. It was quiet the fun experiment, and they turned out beautiful!

It was so nice to have all my family in one place, and an amazing excuse to celebrate some pretty amazing men. 
LOVE my adorable little family!

HELLLO again.

Ahh its been so long since ive blogged! I thought i would at least come on and speed update all my millions of followers. As you can see, Bryan and I have put on a few more pounds but hey... whats another 20 right? 

Ok not really... but we have been in our house for almost a month now and we are LOVING it! I think we have had people over every single day we have been here and i have loved cooking in my new ginormous kitchen. 

My dad agreed to make the entertainment center out of plummers pipe that i wrote about wanting to make a few posts back. After a long day of brainstorming, staining and spray painting... here is the end result! Bryan got a new 55" to fit perfectly in there and with a few decorations (my new globe, a few clocks etc) i would say it's a perfect job well done. 

I'll post more updates once i get all these boxes sorted out and start envisioning all the little beautiful details :)

Exciting projects
My dad agreed to make marley's first toy box for us! I think this Land of Nod toy box is "the one"
we have this awkward sized cutout in our new house for an entertainment center so i think these plummers pipe shelves are the perfect solution! Im excited to start this project! here is the link for the tutorial: shelves

We moved!

We've been in the middle of moving and honestly i had no idea how much really goes into it! Honestly it feels a little like camping haha... with a one year old! Fun, stressful and exciting... and man we have soo much crap!  I sooo wish i could toss everything and start over but im learning to just enjoy the ride and embrace the chaos for a little while.

On top of that... with the HUGE help of my mom and sister-in-law we had a graduation party for my hubby yesterday. It was a fun celebration with family and friends :)
