Anywho...so this post is going to be a mixture of things that have been going on this summer so far. And, it looks like it might be a bit out of order since that is the way the pictures uploaded :)
The following couple of pictures are of our bedroom. Chris and I (or really just I) decided last weekend to repaint our bedroom. When we moved into our house we painted the dining room and living room with plans of painting the bedroom-but we never got around to it. So, I decided it was about that time. We probably should have started before 4:00 on a Saturday, because we didn't finish until about 12:30 that night.
Here is a picture of the new mirror and lights we put in as well :)
Notice the armoir in this picture- Dad made this for us :) doesn't it look professional???
The next picture was taken after our anniversary dinner. We went to the Mansion at Judge's Hill in Austin. It is downtown (near the UT campus), and it was nice :)
After Chris and I got back from Mexico, I was greeted by a sad text message from my mom saying that my uncle's mother had passed away. So, my aunt, uncle, and one of my cousins (and her beautiful kids) came down for the funeral. I had just gotten to see Sam and Mark at Jen's wedding, but it was so nice to see my cousin Katie and her two kids. I had previously only met Madeleine once (at her baptism) and I had never gotten to meet Audrey. They were tons of fun, and so cute! While it was a bittersweet occasion, it was so good to get to see them!!
The next couple of pictures are from our vacation in Mexico. We stayed in Playa Del Carmen for five days, and it was a blast. My tan was not as perfected as I would have liked- due to the continuous rain provided by Tropical storm Alex, but we still had a good time. While we were in Mexico, we were able to take a short cab ride up to Puerto Morelos for a friend's wedding. Chris's friend from college, Kyle, was getting married to Whitney (who he met on Chris' bachelor party weekend in Chorpus Chrisit three years ago).
In other news- Chris and I recently bought a used fish/ski boat. Chris and his brother and dad bought two old houses last year and have been working on restoring them in order to sell them. They were finally able to sell one of the houses in June. The whole time the house was on the market, I had been promising Chris that he could use some of the money to buy a used boat. Well, that time finally came. I think he was able to wait a whole week before we bought the boat. I don't have any pictures of the boat yet (although Chris has several on his phone that he will gladly share with anyone who asks ) because we took it to the apholstery (spelling?) shop to get new carpet and seats. It should be back in the next week or so. Once it's pretty I will post pictures :)
I will be going to visit Jen in Michigan in a couple of weeks as well, so hopefully I will have some fun pictures to share of her new place. I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!! love you all!
