Mr. and Mrs. Smith

Wayne and I traveled with Clint and Hollie to Greenwood this weekend for Andy and Anna's wedding. The weekend was so much fun! The rehearsal dinner was at Fresh Market. I loved the seared tuna.
Wayne particularly enjoyed getting ready for the wedding! He was so excited to be wearing tails, and he looked so handsome! :) And YAY, he does have on his wedding ring (I will share later)! The wedding was very sweet, and the reception was straight from the pages of Martha Stewart - a beautiful Delta plantation! Aside from a birdseed incident, we had a great time!

Painting Princesses

My mom and I took an exciting trip over the weekend to the booming metropolis of Bay Springs! No, we did not go for adventure. We went to help my brother, Rick, and sister-in-law, Meggie, paint their house. The previous occupants had an interesting taste in paint colors. One bedroom was a sloppy mix of hot pink and red and the living room was a rust color. With countless hours of HGTV under our belt, my mom and I were the perfect people to make their place beautiful! The weekend included hours of shopping, priming with Klitz, lining the walls with blue tape, and painting. We had lots of fun, but we did not realize how much work it would really be. In the end their house was beautiful!

My niece, Kailee, has a beautiful shade of pink in her nursery. It is called Ballerina!

The living room is very large so we painted it a darker color to make it feel more comfy. It is a great shade of tan called sauteed mushroom!

A visit with Mr. Brown!

Yay! Candise and Taylor are in Jackson, so they came by to visit last night! It was so much fun catching up with Candise! The Brown's are loving Washington DC, buying a new house, and expecting a baby boy (Andrew Isaiah) on July 10th! And Taylor had tons of great tricks! He can do push ups and knows tons of words. As you can see, he and Nova loved each other!

And Taylor loved Nova's crate and toys! And he shared ice with Neeli and Nova! He was so much fun that the girls did not want him to leave.

Taylor also had some male bonding time with Wayne. Wayne introduced him to a turkey foot and they played with walkie talkies. I think Taylor likes Wayne's "man cave!"

Turkey Season is HERE!

Saturday was opening day of Turkey Season! Wayne was so excited to go with Caleb to his place near Meridian for opening weekend. Caleb, Clint, and Wayne saw lots of birds, and Wayne killed his first turkey of the season on Sunday morning. Yay! Go Wayne! Caleb's puppy, Brooke (in the photo), was really excited too. Brooke's friends, Neeli (our black lab) and Bella (Clint's black lab-Neeli's sister), had a fun weekend playing in the dirt!

Gadgets are fun!

Wayne and I got each other GADGETS for our anniversary! I got this cute, pink IPOD NANO! It is my first IPOD! Yes, I am way behind on technology! I am still in the process of learning how it works, but I cannot wait to use it when I workout! Yay!

Wayne got these binoculars! I think they look really neat, even though I know nothing about them! He needed a good pair of binoculars for turkey hunting. He has been walking about the house looking at stuff with them! Neighbors, close your blinds!

Yay! It snowed!

Yes, it is March 8th! And last night it snowed! Of course, there was not much snow. But based on Neeli, Nova, and Wayne's reaction you would think we got 10 inches! The Black girls had so much fun! They were not sure if they should eat it or play with it! Wayne, on the other hand, just wanted to play!!! Unfortunately, there was not enough snow to make snow angels! Sorry Wayne!

Cake... it's just good!

We have had a great time eating the top of our wedding cake this week! I have to be honest though, we almost forgot about it! As usual, we had dinner on Monday (our anniversary bc of leap year) at Wayne's parents house. We always hang out for a while , watch our favorite TV shows, eat dessert, and get home late. This Monday was no different! Around 10:30pm I got a text from my friend Amy that said "Hope you had a great anniversary! How was the cake?" Of course, I freaked out! First, bc I could not believe that I forgot! Second, bc the cake was still frozen! But I was also very thankful bc we never stay up that late! So, Wayne went got the cake out of the freezer and we had a couple of bites before we went to bed.

Although Wayne says he is not a big fan of dessert, every night this week he has fixed a plate with a huge slab of cake. Needless to say it is going quick!

One Year Anniversary!

Can you believe that we have been married for one year? Of course, there is no better place to celebrate than New Orleans! We traveled on the train, stayed at the W - French Quarter, explored the Aquarium, sang karaoke on Bourbon, and ATE TOO MUCH!
