House Update

I think back in October I said that we were trying to sell our house. When I posted I showed a picture of the house we wanted. Things changed and we didn't sell. Then we got a call that some people down the street from us wanted to buy our house. They are in one of the smaller houses and wanted a larger one. We set out on a house hunt. We went and looked at the one I had posted about before and kept it on the list. Then we looked some new ones. We decided that the original house we wanted was just too far away. We decided to stay in town. We are going to move into a smaller house. I know crazy! Doing this will help us meet siome of the goals we have. We also think it's a smart thing to do in these crazy economic times. We started to clean and organize everything over the weekend. I had a few crying moments as we got rid of things. Nothing huge just things that need to go. A baby/infant sled that we got Madison when she was little for her first snow. I've got pictures of her in it and it's just time. I'm tearing up just thinking about it. We will be moving from 2400 sq. ft. into 1600 sq ft. I'll be sure to share pics on how we do this. Our lot size will now double and that we are excited about. I thought I'd post a picture of our old house and two of our new house.

Themed Thursday

Today I join Southern Whimsy for Themed Thursday. The theme is Furry Friends Real or Faux. I grew up in the country with pets all over living outside. I was NEVER going to allow a pet in my house. The idea just grossed me out. I have germ issues. This summer we met this little guy and my heart just melted. I had to forget about my germ issues. Baxter is our Real Furry Friend.
The only Faux Friend I decorate with right now are roosters. I just LOVE them and all the colors they have are just GREAT. I think the next animal I would like to add to my collection would be frogs.

I love this picture. I found it at my neighbors garage sale.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my real or faux furry friend.

Taylor & Ashley

I just wanted to share a couple pictures from their wedding. Don't you just love the red shoes? They are so darn cute! They remind me of the movie 'Wizard of Oz'.

Happy Groundhog Day!!!!

Groundhog Day is a BIG day for our family. When Sydney went to kindergarten her teacher was a HUGE Phil fan. She passed on that love of Phil to all the kids. So today if I feel better we will head to Raleigh to see Sir Walter Wally. Happy Groundhog Day!!!!!
