One year ago today we got the keys!

Yep! On June 29, 2013 we got the keys to our dream house. We have a done a lot of work to it in a year and we look forward to finishing a ton more projects!

Do we love it still? Yes!

What is our favorite part? The extra space. The quiet neighborhood. The huge backyard. The pool.

We are SO grateful to be in our house. It has been a wonderful year! Cheers to many more wonderful times ahead!!

Ferno time

We have been loving our time with Ferno. We're not used to a big dog, her head reaches the countertops and she can leap up on all the beds and furniture. Curly can't get up on our bed. Curly walks really slowly and Ferno is fun to run with. The most fun is that Ferno loves to swim!!
 
Don't you worry Dagny and Dean, Ferno is having a good time here! We are giving her a ton of attention. Nana even lets her out during the day so she isn't in her crate too long when we are at work. 
See you soon, Mom and Dad! Have a great honeymoon!!

Congratulations Pedar!!!



Three months and six interviews later, Pedar accepted a new job as Wells Fargo's new Community Development Officer. My super hunky hubby has worked for Wells for almost ten years in Marketing. I am excited for him to take on this new challenge!! It is so great to see him rewarded for his hard work.
Cheers to you my love! Let's celebrate!!

Pay attention to what has your attention!

I've been flying by the seat of my pants a lot lately, talking about what I need to get done and not making a plan on how I am actually going to do it. Kind of like making a budget and not changing anything to stick to it. It's time I made some plans to help me meet some goals. Enough talking and more planning on how I am going to get it done. If I want to see change, I have to be the enforcer of change. I have been wasting time. It stops today. I am the only person in control of my life. I can make things happen.

Happy Wednesday!

 It is only Wednesday but I am kind of wishing it was Friday. Man oh man, I just want to stop for a few hours and not have to rush back into something else. Really looking forward to Saturday morning. No work. No plans. Just time to be.

Day after the wedding

The day after the wedding Karen and Jim hosted a brunch in their beautiful backyard.

I forced Dagny to open my gift to them. Congrats you two!!
I love these ladies!!
Erik loves spicy Doritos!

We left the party and prepared our house for Ferno!! Pedar ran to the hardware store so he could fix the gate so she can't get out. Our house needs a lot of new fences and gates. Yeah. We are watching Dagny and Dean's little precious Ferno while they are on their honeymoon!
She can't get out now! I'm glad we fixed this gate. Curly got out the other day and came to the front door! Pedar and Casey drove over to Dagny's on Sunday evening and picked up Ferno and brought her home. This is where she sleeps.

Curly and Ferno getting used to one another!

The first night went great. The next day we got home from work and daycare and jumped in the pool with Ferno. She loves swimming!!
After swimming we took her for a walk.
She was pretty tired last night. We cuddled on the couch while watching a show.

Dagny and Dean's Wedding Day!!

It's hard to say what was my favorite part--Dean singing to his beautiful bride is definitely in the top three!!
Aunt Lorraine waiting in the bridal suite with the boys for all the magic to start!!

Katie signing the marriage license!!
I cried when I saw Dagny on Saturday, she just looked so beautiful and happy and ready to start this new chapter in her life! I've watched this beautiful young woman grow up for the past 18 years. I look forward to celebrating Dagny and Dean and their adventures for a long time!
Mr and Mrs. Starn!!
My flower girls 13 years later! Love my Lindsey and Megan!
The train ride after the wedding was a lot of fun!!
