wedding update :)

So, I couldn't access my photos on my camera because I can't find the cord. Unfortunately, Thanksgiving #2 will have to wait a few days to be posted. 
How about some wedding pictures though?? :)

Our wonderful photographers/videographers- Nuvoria Photography gave us 920 photos. All edited.
I can't decide which ones are my favorite. Not at all. Every single one of them is amazing...I couldn't be happier! If you get married and need a photographer, the choice is easy. Pick Nuvoria and Illuxia Studios. You will not be disappointed. Seriously.
Their style and creativity is amazing. YAY!

I am just posting a few for now...If you all want, let me know and I will post more. :)

Thanksgiving #1 :)

...and our first tree!

 It was my first time to put up a tree! So fun!
Brandon's family brought our tree to us and helped us assemble it :)

yay! Our first tree!

I left all of the light stringing to Brandon ;)
I love the way our tree looks lit.

We are having a "Decorate our Tree" party next week so we can actually get some ornaments and have a fun time making them with the fellowship of friends! :) Should be quite fun.
Our dessert spread! Thanksgiving was hosted at our house this year for Brandon's side of the family! what a new experience it was-so quiet and laid back! :) It was wonderful. But I looked forward to the bustle of the next day when we would celebrate with my family. Both were SO fun! :)

Hosting Thanksgiving made me realize that I am missing a few essential kitchen items :) Our turkey barely fit on the plate that I had...I needed a bigger platter :P

After dinner we had a wonderful time of games and music :)

And to end the evening the guys took turns seeing who could press the most weight on the scale.
It broke.

I am so looking forward to next year! :) I just love Thanksgiving!

stay tuned for Thanksgiving #2 at my familys house! :)

Get your Christmas cards!

This year I entered to win the 50 free holiday cards from Tiny Prints with the Holiday 2011 Christmas Card Blog Campaign! :)

I have gotten cards from them once before, and was thrilled when I saw that there was an opportunity to get some for free! Their website gives you a lot of different options to work with for your custom made cards and their prices on the different cards are pretty excellent-shipping included in that statement :)

I was browsing around and looking through their cards and found one that I like quite alot, and I believe I just might use these for Brandon and I's cards this year :)

Go to:  to check out all of the different options that they have this year! :) Cards with photos are the best way to go, in my opinion :)

This is the card I like the best:

Buuuut, I also like this one...

aaaannnd this one :)

:) There are just so many :)

So, go have fun! Create your cards now- it's the time to do it! :)

"our" house :)

I am fulfilling my promise. iPod pictures! :P

We have been blessed with basically a four story house to live in, rent free, for up to possibly three years.

Isn't that awesome? :)

I have so much still to do with the house to make it "home", but for now, here are some pictures of most of the rooms.
This weekend Stephanie and I are going to yard sales and a huge flea market type thing, I am hoping to be able to find some decorating things for cheap :) And soon I will be putting Christmas decorations up. I will post more pictures later when things are decorated :)

The house.
We are located in the valley with a gorgeous mountain view right from our windows.
I love looking out at that view every really doesn't get old.

Alrighty-the inside :)

^^ our kitchen and dinning room
The door on the far left is our pantry, the one to the right, closest to the camera, is the bathroom.

fire place, one of two music corners, music stands... :)

Our free couch, ottoman and double chair. We will soon be getting a FREE piano and another free couch! :)
Our second music corner :) We have two guitars, a viola, two violins (four right now-borrowing two), two mandolins, a cello, music books and soon to be a piano :)

This is my favorite corner of our living room. The chair was free, and the afghan was made by some dear friends. I love it! The sun hits just right on this chair... :)

going dowwwwn to the basement.

We have a big tv down there now...but I need to work on making this area more friendly looking-I just never use this area!

Downstairs bathroom with washer and dryer...I love the washer and dryer :D

guest room number one :) ( just for you Lydia!)...can't wait to do more with this room!

 Guest rooms number 2 and 3... :)
Hopefully, in the next week or two, I will finish getting all of my boxes of books down from my room and exchanging books. Putting theirs into my boxes and putting my books on the shelves :)

this is right before you go downstairs (from the kitchen) or outside...
I like this spot-its right next to our fridge and in the dinning room area
Our fridge with my cool wall hanging from Bethany which she brought back for us from Scotland :) I need magnets :P
going uppp the stairs... Our room is right there on the right. But, no pictures. It still has boxes and I will wait til those are out and I have some things on the wall to show pictures :)
Our over look area...
ta da!
Going uppppp the stairs again, into the "attic"
Brandon LOVES this room :)

The other two rooms up in the attic....sooo much space!
There is also a storage room.
Oh, this is our patio. I love sitting out there :)
Part of my pantry :)
Our barn-we have goats and a donkey. And two cats that i don't like.
that is my tour, for now :) Come vist!!

More posts coming the beginning of next week!
Be praying for Brandon-he has a job opportunity that he is shadowing next week! :)
