Joys of owning a home

So less than a month after we had been in our house we discovered a slab leak! The worst part was that we had to turn on and off the hot water every time we wanted to take a shower. It was so inconvenient.

Here is the repair process

Here is how we tried to make this fun


We put Holly's paw in it too, but it didn't work out so well

We had to stay off of it for 72 hours, so here is our barrier to block Holly

The crazy part is, the hole in the pipe was about the size of a pin head. So tiny it wouldn't even show up in a picture! The silver lining is that we are getting all new floors because they couldn't find an exact match. That fun process, which could take up to four days, starts December 6th.

Carrie Underwood

My mom loves Carrie Underwood. So much, that when she was on American Idol my mom would call to tell me to vote for her. I have never watched American Idol, but I called and did it anyway. Carrie is from Oklahoma and used to perform at the Arkansas/Oklahoma State Fair in Fort Smith. My mom hasn't seen her perform live since then, and that was several years ago. Carrie actually had Oklahoma City on her tour schedule this year, so my sister and I bought tickets for us and my mom. We gave them to her for her birthday and she was really excited. She just had to wait four months to get to use them though.

Below are some pictrues frome the concert.

Billy Currington opened for her. I just love him!

She is a great performer and has an amazing voice. I will say I was a little disappointed in the wardrobe. She usually has such great clothes. I did take a picture of every wardrobe change.

I took some video, but for some reason I can't get it to upload. I'll try again another day.

We had so much fun. I would definitely go see her again.

Never thought I would say this

but I am actually super excited to be doing laundry!

We moved into our house just over a month ago and our washer and dryer just got installed on Sunday. That is a whole lot of laundry piled up!

We ordered our washer and dryer and they actually came in the day we moved to the new house. However we decided we wanted to buy the pedestals for them too, and the did not come in until last week. So Sunday night when we got back into town from Arkansas, Charles and I hooked them up. It was not a smooth process and took us way longer than we had anticipated. I think this was my fault. At mass that morning I had prayed for our marriage to be strengthened. I think God was giving us an opportunity to test that =)

We finally got them installed a few hours later. Here they are in all their fabulousness!

So creative

Our wedding was over a year ago, but I still love looking at new trends in weddings. I still read the wedding blogs I read when planning my own our wedding and today I saw the most creative idea for a guest book. I really wish we had thought of this or seen it before ours.

It's a dictionary! They had their guests choose a word and then sign their name beside the word they chose. How cute is that?
