Cookout Time

We have finally scheduled our cookout to show off our new home. Please come and join us on August 7, 2010 at 3:00 PM. The food will be ready at about 5:00. Sorry, if I didn't have your e-mail address (I was going to put the link for the e-vite but, I don't want someone to have directions to my house), please e-mail me at, if you need directions!

We hope to see you there. You may need to bring some chairs.

The list of things that need accomplished before the cookout isn't too unrealistic but, we'll see.

Eric - just in case you see this - here is the list: (I LOVE YOU AND APPRECIATE ALL YOU HAVE DONE FOR US!)

buy & install water filter
move dirt pile
install screens on windows
finish ceiling in basement
build walls & install doors in basement
straighten & clean ENTIRE basement
lattice under porches
lay block & rock on outside
hang curtains, which I just ordered yesterday, I'm so excited for curtains!

Decorating 101

This is a blank wall in the guest bathroom. Ten minutes later - it's my masterpiece. And the best part - no holes. I used Command hanging strips, they rock! The Wall Words were purchased at TJ Maxx - I love them and they even stick to the wood walls in the dining room.

I should have taken a picture of my shower curtain, it has light purple and green stripes - I swear this arrangement matches it. Frankie got me a shower curtain and accent towels for me for my house warming party at my 2nd to last house.
I had to throw some wedding pictures in too!
I can't show all my decorating styles and tips - you guys need to come see it in person! We have a tentative date for a cookout - August 7th - but, it's not set in stone. I'll let everyone know for sure.
