Christmas Where art thou?

(David wuves our Christmas Tree)
(decorating the tree..)(David's glamor shot he took of himself while I was decorating..)

I guess Christmas is officially over now. But Dave and I had a great Christmas this year... very different. but great. We were well taken care of by all of our friends out here in the South. They were very kind by inviting us to join them in their family festivities so we wouldn't be lonely. Christmas Eve our friends the Weinheimers had us over for a Christmas Eve feast! It was delicious! I made Brandy's infamous "Mac n Cheese" and it was a major hit. We ate until we couldn't eat anymore, listened to the Christmas Story, watched the Mormon Tabernacle Christmas Program.. and then headed over to the Frost's to hang out with them for a little bit and then headed home to go to sleep before Santa came. On Christmas Morning we opened gifts from Santa.. and then headed over to have a Christmas Brunch with the Weinheimers and the Dubravacs. They made us delicious omlets and muffins.. we devoured them and then we all were off to sing @ an old folks home that we found in Mt. Juliet... AND THAT was Christmas!! I felt the TRUE meaning of Christmas.. aside from the gifts... the food... all the stress and worries about getting gifts yadeyadayada... We each picked out a christmas song that we wanted to sing. The kids played songs they learned on the Piano. The two women and I each sang a song as I accompanied(poorly) on guitar. We all felt so full of joy as we were able to share a little bit of our Christmas with those who didn't have anyone to spend Christmas with. It was AWESOME!! After that David and I went home to play with our new pwesents.. relax.. it was great. We got in like a 3.5 hour nap! Then we went over to the Frost's again to bug them for a while! :) We watched a really good movie.. I think it was called "Chance", if you haven't seen it.. you should.. very good!! That was our Christmas.. It was a very good one.

Shirty Shirt Shirts!

Here's my show and tell for the week :)
I picked up this fun hobby, creating crazy funky shirts.
It was my sister-in-law Brandy's wonderful idea, and when I had visited AZ about a month ago we made a few of these shirts, (soo fun! Tiff next time I'm in town we'll all have to do it!)

But since then.. I've Kicked 'em Up a Notch! :)

whatchya think?


Dave and I went to Arizona 2 weeks ago for Grandma McCray's Funeral. It was a unfortunate event to return home to. But the funeral was very nice. Grandma was a wonderful lady and Dave and I feel very blessed to have had her in our lives. Although we were there on such a sad occasion it was nice to be able to spend time with family. I especially enjoyed getting to know my sister-in-law Leesa and her husband Tyson better. We had alot of fun. (thanks for letting us stay with you guys!) We we're able to see both Jacob and Justin in action at there football games. The McCray boys are athletic boys! Jacob's team won 1st place in his league and we were there for the winning game! woot woot!! We had thanksgiving dinner early since we we're in town with about 100 or more of the McCray crew. What else?.. We returned to the valley to visit my family for a little while. My dad just bought a few 4 wheelers so we had a BLAST riding out in the desert with them! It was good to see both of our families, since we aren't going to make it out to see them for Christmas.

Labor Day FUn!

David and I didn't end up going camping on Labor day, but we did have a really fun weekend. We went to the beach at our lake and played water frisbee, layed out and got some sun and went fishing. Then we went to the Driv-In movies for a tripple feature! Saw a football movie, traveling Pants and Batman. It was so fun! We brought our F-150, filled it with a queen size blow up mattress and pillows blankees! We brought our bed with us! Everyone was so jealous! hehe.. (Funny story.. David didn't tie down the air mattress tight enough, and on the interstate going 70 it blew out from our truck bed and hit a car behind us.. I think they might have went # 2 in there pants! Seeing a huge flying object hit your dinky little car! But we managed to get it back in the truck in one piece.) Anyways.. We also had our first softball practice! It was a blast! Kicked our butts though! So my new thing is couponing.. getting stuff almost free. I took a picture of what I got on my Walgreens trip I think total I paid like $11.oo Out of pocket! And I got a ton of stuff!!
Chow for Now!!

(Having way too much fun with my new computer!!)

Orange you glad I didn't say....

Hey! Been a while once again since we have briefed anyone about our life! Probably because we're really not that interesting! Tomorrow we are going to head out for our first camping trip together! ruffin' it out on the Caney Fork. A really cool river, where David will get a chance to try out his sweet fly fishing schtuff! He's super syked!! Now I don't know if I can say the same.. I try not to think of my self as a "girly girl" but I don't know if I'm all about.. TICKS!! BUGS!! SKUNKS!! It's a whole different ball game camping out here in the south! So many new things to worry about that you don't have to in the desert! But I will report on our adventure! Who knows~ It might not be all that bad.
Here are some pics of our life the last couple weeks.This is Koa! Our new boxer pup! We got her the day mom left and headed back to AZ after visiting for my B-day! I bet your wondering why she has a big orange CAST on her leg?!! Well a few days after I got her I was letting her and our older Dog Bailey play .. and Bailey Jumped on her leg and Broke it! Poor puppy! But she's so dang cute!!

David and I have been without headboard/footboard since we've been married!! And I can't stand it! So we decided we were going to do something about it. We wen't to habitat for humanity. We bought 2 five pannel doors ($40) and 1 can of oil paint($1). We love making new uses out of old things! It's more fun that going to a boring furniture store and picking out a cookie cutter piece of furniture!We're still not done. But will post pics when we are!!

Just Three Waffles Please!

Tonight was too beautiful to go straight home after work. So David and I decided to hit up the Waffle House for a joyous night out. It was quite swell! We split 3 waffles.. spent $1.oo on 6 songs in the Jukebox and had a grand ol time! It was actually kind of fun to sit there and watch the cooks bust out there dance moves as they are flipping bacon! And of course they were singing like rockstars because this is "Nashville" and all.And everywhere you turn there's someone trying to make it in the music business. So I bet karaoke out here can't be too bad. Actually probably pretty entertaining... listening to everybody sing in pitch and if you close your eyes it might feel like your at a Kenny Chesney concert os something!! Oh ya! Can't leave out one of our weekly routines! Renting movies from the Redbox! We got Harry Potter and the Goblet of something and Chuck and Larry. We will expound upon them later after we have watched them.

... I would like to point out how handsome my husband is looking these days!! ;) (oh and please notice the belt he's wearing... IT'S MINE!! haha)

Goodness Gracious Great Balls of Blogspot!!

So I spent hours trying to spruce up my old Blog.. to find out that it was totally screwed up... and you could only see jibberish print all over the page! I finally gave up and started fresh. Farewell to all of my old posts! SO what now? Pictures! I was always in to picture books over novels... SO here are some pics from when my girlfriend Alexa came to visit David and I.(they are silly.. but fun!)

Right after I picked Alexa up at the airport.. 1:30am .. we decided we wanted to get milkshakes at Steak and Shake..

The next day we went to the "White Trash Cafe" to enjoy some delicious Southern Cousine!

And you can't visit Nashville.. or Me without taking a trip to GOODWILL!!!

Then some shoe shopping! I love the look on the ladys face in the back!!! Priceless!! I fell in love with these shoes!Totally on my wishlist for my birthday!! ...David! :)

And here are some more random pics from our adventure!! Enjoy!
