More fixtures, flooring, and a special touch!

I know that every woman has a talented husband in one way or another and my husband definitely does not disapoint. In fact, he is one of the most talented people I know. He has several different interests, but one he has just started using is his ability to paint. I wanted a saying above my breakfast room and this is the one we chose! He started it for me a couple of nights ago and I think it is turning out better than I had hoped!
Thanks to my brothers in law and Al we are starting the floors! I am very interested to see how they turn out because we have 6 different types of wood. We are going to have a dark stain so I will let you know how that turns out!

Weekend in Tuscaloosa!

After work on Friday Al and I headed to Tuscaloosa for the weekend. On Saturday, they were having a National Champioship celebration for the team so of course we had to be there! We had the best weekend and laughed a lot. Here is a run down of the weekend. We went to eat at our FAVORITE restaurant Friday evening.
Here is my plate after I finished with it! I have not cleaned my plate like this in a very long time so you know how good my sampler platter was. It included smoked chicken with white sauce, catfish, fried crawfish, and fried crab claws. YUMMY!

Our waiter ask us if we had a place to stay yet, and we said "no". He told us good luck because he had heard there were no hotels left. So, we take off to find a hotel and we found one.............all I have to say is we slept in our jeans, socks, sweatshirts, on top of the covers. It was a rough one and next time I will just sleep in the car!!! Lots of laughs that night!!!

The next morning we got up to a continental breakfast which consisted of donut sticks and pecan twirls. We were starving for lunch so we headed to Baumhower's Wings and stuffed ourselves with cheese fries and buffalo chicken salads. Again, YUMMY! After that we headed to the stadium to Celebrate with the National Champions the Alabama Crimson Tide!

Raising her right!

Well, most of you know that Al and I are living with Matt and Angela while we finish building our house. During this time we have become very attached to a certain little girl. We have thoroughly enjoyed getting to spend so much time with her. She is especially attached to her uncle Bobo.Some of you might know that other than watching football, Al's favorite past time is playing his Xbox 360. He has several different games and Anna Beth loves "playing" too. She gets her remote and thinks she is big stuff playing the same game as her Bobo. Here is a picture of them playing on Sunday afternoon while waiting for lunch to get done. I just thought it was so cute and wanted to share the picture with everyone!

National Champions!

Ok, so by now everyone know's the Alabama Crimson Tide are #1 in the Nation and National Champs! You all know the Burns family loves the Crimson Tide and watch intensely every time they are playing, so it goes with out saying that on January 7th we had a big party and enjoyed the win until early the next morning!!! Here are a few pictures of our night. We were able to project the game on the wall so we had a great view for the entire night!!! Can't wait for next season to arrive!! Roll Tide!

Cold/wet weather=Slow building process

I have not posted in a while, because to be quiet honest we have not been able to make a whole lot of progress. Here are a few pictures.......the brick is almost complete, we have interior doors, our hardwood has been delivered so it can "season", and the ceilings have been painted...

Christmas in Birmingham!!

On New Year's day we headed to Birmingham to have Christmas with Al's family. We had lunch and watched football all day! It was a good trip and we enjoyed our time down there.

Christmas Lunch with the Burns

For lunch on Christmas day, the Burns family came over to Matt and Angela's. We had a great lunch and then we had a great time watching the girls open their presents. Destiny and Anna Beth got Barbie jeeps this year from their other grandparents. They love just sitting in them and getting in and out. (Anna Beth does not even know it drives yet, we are going to enjoy it sitting in the living room right now!!) Here are the girls just sitting in AB jeep and having a good time!
They were both really pros at opening presents, it was so much fun watching them be so excited about opening!!
