family room

Just got back from my best friend's Janelle's wedding in Miami.

Janelle got engaged while visiting us for New Years 2009. It was a wonderful, surprise engagement on top of Grandfather Mountain in Boone, NC. It was very important to me that I was able to be a part of it. (I took this picture below) Jay is a GREAT man who LOVES her so much. He did a great job planning his engagement to Janelle.

I helped her plan this wedding. Planning lasted a year and we were so anxious for it to all come together. Janelle is like my sister. Being her Matron of Honor was very special for me. She was my Maid of Honor for my wedding. I even let her borrow my veil for her something "borrowed" and I couldn't have been any more proud to do so. I will blog more about the wedding later, but I just wanted to say how very happy I am for her and Jay. I just think about the wedding and tear was very emotional and special. I was happy to be able to visit my family, as well. It was hard to leave Miami this time. I guess its because I don't know when I will return. Either way, the entire weekend was very special for me and I will treasure it forever!

The weekend before returning to Miami, Ronnie and I went to GA to meet with the painter to get an estimate. We got a great deal to paint our master bedroom, dining room, and some repairs around the house. We hope the painter to get started sometime after we close this month. Things with our current home are going smoothly. We get visitors practically daily, so we are praying everything is successful in the end.

Meanwhile, I'd like to share with you with what our new family room looks like! I am in love with our brick fireplace and built-ins. It's a BIG open area attached to the kitchen. I love the wood floors and I really like the carpeting for those cold winter nights snuggled on the couch. We plan on having our TV set on the wall over the mantle (like we have in our current home). I LOVE the windows that look out to the patio and backyard. And lets not forget the ceiling. I wish I knew what that kind of ceiling is called right now. But I think it makes the room! Here are some pictures.

The only thing that gets us is the fireplace....sorry's a total FAKE! But it looks pretty! We'll live... :)

Erika, it's so gorgeous! I know I keep saying that, but really I am in LOVE. We're buying soon too, but it's not going to be anything like this. Hopefully one day it can be half as nice with some renovations.

And I don't know if you have mentioned this before, but I guess you're gonna have to re-name your blog. :(


Congrats to your friend. Love the pics of the house :) So exciting.


Thanks Barb! Believe me when I say that now is the time to buy...we truly got lucky Barb. It was a model home and in foreclosure. The builder went out. We had to jump on it. It was a great deal....

I have already thought about the name change. I will blog about it soon.

Eli: Thanks girl! I am very excited!


Awe, that's a great picture. Glad you had a grat time at the wedding! Also, the family room is beautiful! I love it!
