Kitchen Update

Mr. Husband and I had a good 2 month streak where all we did was watch the DIY network, and HGTV.  Needless to say we drank the cool-aid, and decided we needed crown molding!  Chris is more used to it being from back east, and it is just something I’ve always wanted.  It added so much to our home, and we are so happy we did it!

Here's the Before...

and mid construction...

We also decided to add a back splash.... Go big or go home right?!?

 And here's the after!

We just Love Love Love how it turned out... and we love being home even more now!!!

The Royal Wedding

On April 29, 2011,   I was so excited to finally watch the wedding of the century!  The wedding took place at 11 am in the morning, which mean it was 3 in morning Arizona time.  I was so exhausted but waking up that early was worth it!  the glamor and pageantry of the entire wedding was beyond impressive!  And yes, these are photos I took from the TV :)

This photo popped up on Facebook a few hours later... and it was Perfect :)

Mama Bird

This is Mama bird... I remember one morning seeing a bird fly back and forth on our porch and while it was away, we looked and found a nest!.  We weren't too thrilled to say the least, but it wasn't as bad as we expected.  After googling the birds, we found out that they were Mourning Doves:


We named them Mama and Papa bird, never knowing which was witch because they supposedly they switch places while each one takes a turn looking for food.

They were around for about 2 weeks until they had their 2 baby birds.  We knew that they would be gone when we came back from Hawaii, so we got in some last minute pictures before we left.  It was kind of sad knowing they'd be gone, but they left of lots of bird poop as a thank you gift :)

P.S. - To the next bird couple... Next time, we're charging rent.
