Looking more and more like a house!!

Well in between the rain showers the last couple of weeks they have managed to get more done on the house. It is finally looking like a house. Next will be the windows and doors then the roof, plumbing and electrical work. This picture looks like there are not any windows, but they are just not cut out yet!! Let's keep our fingers crossed that there is no more rain for a while!!

Jessica's Tea Party

Anna Beth showing off her hat at the Tea Party!! I love having her reflection showing in the background!

Me and my fabulous mom at the Tea Party.
Katherine and Leanne's Table was absolutely gorgeous!

Our Candyland Princess Table!! Angela, Amber, and I decorated this table for the Tea Party. There were a lot of ladies there and it was a wonderful turn out. This was a wonderful idea to raise awareness for meningitis and for Jessica's scholarship fund!

Anniversary Present!!

Ok, so most of you are thinking why is she posting about a purse. Well I for one have never been privileged enough to own an expensive purse. I have always just had knockoffs and wanted everyone to think I had an expensive purse. Well for our 5 year Anniversary my sweet hubby let me pick out a "Real" Coach purse while we were in Vegas. I know a lot of people have these, but I was Super excited about being able to purchase and carry this one!!

What happens in Vegas....

The Hoover Dam (only part of it of course, it was huge!)

The Bellagio (it had beautiful fountains in front that played with music)

Our hotel The Luxor

Well, we did not do anything in Vegas we can't talk about so here are a few pictures! We went to several of the hotels/casinos. We went to Criss Angel's Illusion/Cirque de Solie (spelling??) show, had dinner in the Eiffel Tower, went to the Hoover dam, shopped at the Forum Shoppes in Caesars Palace. (actually we just looked in the shops since it was Gucci, Fendi, Chanel, etc.!!) We had a fantastic time and enjoyed celebrating our 5 Year Anniversary! Time flies when you are having fun! Oh and on the flight home we slid in on arrival. It was raining in B'ham when we landed and the plane slid back and forth a couple of times before catching it's grip on the pavement. (Al says no more flying for a while) Also, while we were gone they did not get to work on the house much since it rained all week. Hopefully they will get a little more completed this week and I can post more pictures!

Materials have arrived!!

Sand, blocks, what more could a girl ask for? Maybe for them to magically form a foundation???

This is our temporary power pole!

Today we had the materials delivered for our foundation. They are supposed to be finished with it by Monday and then the framing can begin! I am really ready for the framing part, because I will really get to see what it is going to look like. I have looked at our plans a million times, but until I actually see it built will I really know what it is going to look like! I am really getting excited and hopefully Angela and I are going to look at furniture this Saturday while the guys are gone. I know that is really a long way off, but it is still the best part about getting a new house! Decorating......
