My family is coming into town for the weekend, it'll be there first time staying with us. And I am so excited that this time we will actually have room for them. My BBFs will all be there too, I'm excited for it. It's nice to be able to have a place for people to stay and feel welcome! I hope we have visitors often! So on Saturday, I will be the hostest with the mostest entertaining friends and giving them tours of our home!

Orion & I finally arrived in Ok!
Tonight was the rehersal and dinner. So fun to be with great people, and have a down home southern BBQ! Kyle's fiance' is truly wonderful. Melissa is even more beautiful and charming in person. Kyle really has picked a good one! She's adorable. Tomorrow is their wedding and I am so excited! I love weddings, and I especially love them when they are between two of your close friends. Orion is out having a "guys" night with Kyle and the rest of the men, while I am sitting here blogging and catching up on t.v. Ahh.....I love vacation! More to come on our Oklahoma adventures!

PS- If I couldn't be a dancer on the show, I would for sure want Samantha's job! She too gets to dress up fancy! Isn't this so fun!?!

Chad came over this past Sunday to help Orion put up the hood over the stove. We bought a new one cause the old one really didn't match the new black stove. Next on our list of home things to do; get a guest room together. Coming from a one bedroom apartment to a 3 bedroom house we don't even have enough furniture to fill it all. We're really excited to have a guest room finally and be able to have people stay with us when they visit. There's just one problem right now: there's no bed for them to sleep on. That is our next thing to work on this week. It's a work in progress. We love, love, love our home!

We now have garage shelves, we are well on our way to getting the 2nd car in there!
If I could work any other job than the one I already have, I think I would like to go into people's houses and help them organize their lives, and homes. I'm sure there's a job like that out there somewhere..I just wish I thought of it first. ;)

Orion tackling the "green monster."
We did finish, and I couldn't be more happy to be done. We still have to do some trim spots that are tricky so we have to get smaller brushes, but for the most part we are done! I'm looking forward to a weekend of finally be able to UN-pack more and start decorating! Orion and I both agree we need some color! Right now we're living in a sea of brown paint. It's going to be wonderful when we're all done. It's been interesting doing it all by ourselves, it really makes it seem like "our home" now that we've done all these things to it. It doesn't even feel like the same home we looked at. It's finally ours, and there's no better feeling!
Saturday morning Orion and I will be getting a new stove put in, I am excited! It's funny how all these little things can make you so excited and happy. I feel really blessed that we've been able to have this nice house, and make the necessary repairs that it needs. God's really blessed us, and we couldn't be more thankful. It's something that we needed to replace because the old one is really old, and isn't working the best. When our inspector suggested we replace it as soon as we could for efficiency purposes and so that we didn't blow a fuse and start something on fire, we were like OK Lord; please provide! And he did, and we're getting a new one Saturday. It's a blessing.
