I Went On A Holiday

The sunset on the way out of Tulsa headed to Colorado.

We got to spend time with old friends in Tulsa, Ok.
This is my best friend Kelly with her two kids Aurora and Pike.

We were all tan from skiing. This is the day we shopped all day!

Taking a break...this ski stuff wears you out.

Look at me go!

The top of Crested Butte.

Us in our gear on the mountian. This was so much fun!

On top of the mountian cheesing it up!

Us in front of the Tomichi Dome, before skiing on the first day.
For our 4 year anniversary Jeff and I took a trip to Crested Butte, Colorado to go skiing. This is something we were wanting to do before we had kids so we thought it was the perfect anniversary present. It was one of the best vacations I've ever had (second only to our honeymoon in the Bahama's.) This was my very first time skiing and Jeff's sixth. I can't wait to go again.
Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Josiah's Baby Blanket

I had to try the blankie out on a cabbage patch doll. :)

Josiah's baby blanket I crocheted for him.
Just the perfect size to carry around or fit in a car seat.

Some of My Favorite Art

This cross was made by my great grandmother (Cora Ray) over 100 years ago. She took rose stems and twisted them and pinned them onto the wood which is covered with black fabric. I found this outside in my grandfather's shed. No one had claimed it after he had passed, so my Maw-Maw told me to take it. They were going to throw it in the garbage.

My little sister Morghan painted this for our tropical bedroom. Pretty awesome especially for a 13 year old! She gave this to us for Christmas. Once we get the bedroom sheet rocked and painted I'll hang it up.

Mom brought this drawing back from New Orleans for me.

This was given to us from some friends that lived in Tulsa, Ok. The man's wife had traveled somewhere over seas and purchased this years ago.

TV Stand Art Display

This is also a t.v. stand I am using as a buffet in my dining room.

Our t.v. is located on top of our mantle, so I decided to try and make the top of our t.v. stand look nice. Collections of the same color vases look great even when empty. I tried to incorporate some cool colors into our warm living room. The lamp came from Target, the picture frame is from Burke's outlet. The vases have been collected over the years from various places.

Gotta have a wii and a 360. Can't forget the old records. The picture is of my maw-maw and paw-paw Ray when they were a lot younger. :D

A Romantic Getaway!

Jeff decided to surprise me this weekend and take me on a much needed vacation! How romantic... I KNOW! We went to Destin and stayed at the Sheraton. We got to eat lots of seafood, walk the beach, and even pet an alligator at Fudpuckers. Ahhh.... I love my hubby. It was so nice to de-stress and get away from the hecticness of life!

So, our bathroom is basically finished! Yippee! We just had our vanity installed today and it looks great! I was getting tired of our little sink without a stopper and storage. All I have to do now is make a curtain to match the shower curtain and we will be completely finished with the bathroom. We got the cabinet and fixtures from Marvin's in Greenville.
