Season Ticket Holders

I think I won wife of the year this past weekend! I have been scheeming to surprise Jared with season football tickets. Living in College Station it is a must to have tickets especially being both Aggie grads. Every time he would bring up how great tickets would be, I would shoot him down saying they were too expensive. But little did he know I was planning on getting him tickets the whole time! I had planned to go through the Lettermen's Associtation to get tickets, but they sell out fast! Good to know for next year...I won't drag my feet! We are sitting on the West side in the curve. I hope they will have a good view! If you blow up the picture Jared is pointing to our section.

After I placed the order, I made Jared a mock Aggie Ticket! It was fun to play around with the clip art! I drove him to the stadium to give him his ticket. Luckily the stadium gates were unlocked so we could snap this picture. Hopefully the Aggies will have another great season! Jared won't quite know what to do with himself.... 7 Aggie home games plus Texas is a home game all in 1 year!! Jared and I attended the A&M vs. TU game in 2005!

Last Wednesday our good friends from church had their little boy, Benjamin! He is a sweetheart! I got to see him again tonight when we brought them dinner! I'm sensing a newborn shoot soon!!

I'm Back

Wow well time has really gotten away from me to say the least! Jared and I have been SO very busy these last couple of months! We bought a house, moved out of Waco, moved into College Station, unpacked, took some trips, got in a wreck, had the flu, currently getting over pneumonia, so yea life has been kinda crazy! I'm still commutting between Waco and College Station. We will see if that will continue to next year or not. I have also been applying to just about every district around College Station, but it has to be the worst time to be looking for a teaching position. So far we love our new house and are looking forward to having some neighbors. Luckily the house next to us is going to house a young couple that just had a little girl. We are excited for them to move in and have some neighbors. I am really looking forward to June 3, the last day of school!! Yes I love my job, but i'm ready to spend some real time with Jared, Browning and our new house! I'm also looking forward to summer days by the POOL!!!

So I made my first newborn TuTu! Since I don't have a model...I had to use my stuffed horse!

Houston and Brooke's Wedding! My new kitchen!!
All the Women!We're still cute after 3 years!

Well enought talk here are some pics!

Coming to an End

Well it's been a fun time playing house at 10329 Sierra West. Another milestone has come into our lives. No longer are we first time home buyers but now first time sellers. The papers have been signed, and our house is official on the market! There will be a lock box on the house tomorrow and it can start being shown. The website should contain the pictures and write up on the house no later than Thursday! I went through the house today snapping pictures and reminiscing in every room. It is amazing all the projects we have endured in 2 years and 2 months. This house has been good to us, and we have enjoyed making it our home! It was pretty tough handing over the keys to the Realtor today. I pretty much teared up right in front of her! This whole move has been weighing on me recently. June is a long time away, and these weekend visit from Jared are too quick. Selling a house alone is tough! I have mixed emotions about when I want it to sell! I would love for the people who see our house to absolutely fall in love with it because I did! That would be comforting to know that we made good choices in our first home, our designs, and upgrades! But I don't want it to sell too soon because then my home is no longer! Either way we have the most gracious friends to offer up their spare bedrooms. Then I will be the one commuting on the weekends! HA! Our Realtor has nothing but compliments about our house (i know this is part of her job) , but it is still nice to hear! Hopefully Browning won't mind strangers into his home! He'll probably just greet them with a ball hoping for a strong arm and friend! Enjoy the pictures!

The ole yellow room! So cute now!

Probably the most unchanged room of all!
Oh the Aggie office!

Guest Room Makeover!

For 2 years...yes the entire time we have lived here...I've been avoiding one of our guest rooms. The idea was to have a creamy country yellow....well that didn't exactly happen. It was a bright bright yellow that I never really warmed up to. Since the house is going to go on the market, I felt that other potential buyers would feel the same way. So back to Khaki it goes! It actually looks pretty good against the white wicker furniture which surprises me!! Maybe it's the bedding?!?! What I great buy I found on!!! I bought it on a whim and LOVE it! Plus some new art work which fits in more with the decor around the house! One more project crossed off from the list! YEAH! Enjoy!

Love some RED!!
New pictures!

Bathroom Makeover 101

WOW do I have an amazing husband!! He's so talented! We have been wanting to update our guest bathroom since we moved into this house 2 years ago! Well the only thing we did was buy new towel holders and towels! Some things really come together when you know you have to sell your house! These last little details, that we always wanted to do, are now finished! For about $45.00 we gave our guest bath a nice update! Jared made all the cuts and sprayed the wood and the old fixture! Yes that was the old GOLD fixture!!! Who knew it would have been that big of a change!! We are so happy with the final product! Oh and we bought a new shower curtain!! LOVE IT!!!

New Framed Mirror and "Improved" lighting!!
