It's all about the details

The detail work in this house is incredible. I saw it on Life's Design and I just love the kitchen.

I would be in heaven if I had a wall of storage in my house like this!

Shower Invites!

We are home from our vacation! We had a great time but I have lots of laundry and picking up to do! I go back to work on Tuesday, so I will have to do a recap of our vacation another day! But while we were on vacation I sent out the invites for the Couples Shower I am throwing in a couple of weeks for our friends. I had MEllen Designs, who I used for quite a few things for my wedding, make some custom invites for me so it would fit the theme of the party perfectly. I wanted it to be beachy which Chelsey loves, but also include Richard who is a southern country boy at heart. I think they turned out great. I blurred some of the information out at the bottom but you can see most of it!

Off to the Keys

My mom, sister and I are off to Key West to have some fun. It just happens to be that my best friend Allie and her family are down there at the same time. So I'm excited to do some shopping, get some sun and have a little fun at night.

Then we are heading to Islamorada where my Uncles house is to meet up with 13 other family members for mini lobster season. My dad and Jeff are trailering the boat down on Saturday, my brother flies in from Oklahoma on Friday and then all my cousins etc come.

We will be catching a lot of these!

Well let me rephrase my cousins and my uncle and maybe Jeff will be catching a lot of these. My uncle and mom have been doing this with their parents since they were little kids. And we literally get our limit of lobster within 15 minutes the first morning its crazy. They know where all the good spots are and we scout the day before and wake up at like 4 in the morning to go get our spot before anyone else does. (insane if you ask me) We come up with like 100 lobster because each person on the boat gets a max of 6. This is Jeff's first time coming because he normally was up playing football during this time and it is a true treat. My family is very stubborn and doesn't hold anything back and when we have 16 people in one house it tends to get a little crazy. But we will also be going fishing for mahi and all sorts of stuff so it will be a good time.

Hopefully I come back with a tan and nice and relaxed! I will be back in 10 days. It's a little bittersweet because we get back on a Saturday and teachers go back to school that following Tuesday. Where did the summer go?

Hoosier Mama Cruise 2011

Ok so if you have been reading my blog you will remember my posts in the spring time about my ladies flag football team called the Hoosier Mamas. My husband and another guy were the coaches and we won the championship. So went on a cruise to celebrate our winning season. Here are some pictures from our trip this past weekend. We had a lot of fun and sure ate and drank a whole bunch. I have got to get back to my dieting after that weekend. We went to Nassau and Coco Cay Bahamas. Lots of good memories. I have not stopped sleeping since yesterday morning at 10 am until today at 11 am with the exception of waking up to eat.

Before we boarded the cruise we went to this restaurant to have some drinks and appetizers. Here are boys who came with us. The two big boys on the left, one being my husband and the other who use to be his football coach in high school but now they are great friends are our coaches!

Jeff became friends with every cab driver.

We got back from our cruise today and I just woke up from my first nap and I will probably be heading back to the couch to sleep some more. We had lots of fun with our friends, but just not a lot of sleep. I will post all about our cruise when I get sometime.
If you noticed my design is different with a different name. Jeff and I aren't really newlyweds anymore so the Adventures of a newlywed really didn't fit this blog anymore. I came up with Olive Juice purely by a friends photographer is named this and I fell in love with it, so yes I did not come up with it on my own. Mouth olive juice to your husband or kids and see what they think you said and that will explain it all! (they should think you said I love you)

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I am off to sleep some more, and doing laundry only to pack again because we head to the keys on Wednesday!

We are two days away from heading out on vacation which means my list of things to do is about a mile long. Hubs thinks since he is working and I'm not means just keep tacking on what he would like me to do before he heads out the door for work.

So in between doing laundry, getting booze for the cruise, running to the grocery store, picking up dry cleaning, mall to find Jeff a tie for the captains dinner, and getting my nails done, you will find me in front of the TV at 11:30!
I have to admit I do not really like soccer (sorry to those who that offends) but it's slightly boring until about the last 5 minutes, but Jeff and I have been watching the women's USA team and I have totally enjoyed it. Especially last weeks game that went into penalty kicks which was exciting and nerve racking. GO USA!

New Do!

I was tired of my old blog design so I decided to freshen it up with a freebie from Tenille. I am currently on the wait list to get a custom one from Sweet Simplicity in the future so this will do for now until she has some time to get my custom design done.

As for my day.. I took my car to get an oil change and tire rotation and a couple hours later I got a call with a list of things that needed to be repaired. I didn't believe it at first because they normally take you for a joy ride at auto shops so I said my husband will be calling you back. So Jeff calls me after he talked to them and said I really did need some of it but not all of it. So what was going to be a 20 dollar oil change turned into hundreds of dollars! This is a picture to explain how I was feeling

Then I got over it and said oh the rain stopped for a little while let me go for a run. I walk out my front door and there are two teenagers badgering me to buy fish and steak out of their beat up truck. I said no thank you and they continued to hound me I was like no thanks and kept walking. About a mile into the run the sky decided to open back up and it was torrential down pour! It actually felt great but I felt like God was saying cool it about the car and move on. So I proceeded to run another mile soaking wet which was a real joy!

Okay enough of my rant! Hope your Friday is better than mine! Have a great weekend

Summer Home

I came across this house which is so called a Summer Home I'm sure in the Hamptons or somewhere, but I'd be more than thrilled to call this my home. I love the living room!

4th of July Recap

I have to say that I have not had the strength nor time to sit down and write a post after a weekend full of fun. Our fourth of July weekend we were on the constant go so it is nice to just sit down and do absolutely nothing.
Friday night we went out on the boat and had dinner with some friends. Saturday I woke up early to run then go get my nails done with Chelsey before we headed over to the 50th birthday party. The party was an absolute blast. Live band, drinks, friends, butt quarters (it was hilarious), corn hole, rolling ritas, a whole pig to eat, and lots of dancing is the best I can describe it.
Sunday we got up and met some friends at the beach to enjoy the sun and ended with a cook out at Allie and Brandon's.
Monday we got up and headed out onto the boat with 5 of our friends and spent the entire day just floating on the river, tubing, and enjoying the sun. We ended the night watching fireworks on the water. Lots of fun times but I have to say I was completely exhausted after all of it.

Yesterday was my Dad's birthday and tonight we celebrated it. So Happy Birthday Dad I love you!! For the next week and half I am going to be hitting the gym and eating healthy as we prepare for our cruise next weekend. Jeff and I are going to compete against each other and see who can loose 5 pounds in the next 8 days. Fingers crossed for me!
