Chad & I just got back from the beautiful city of Charleston! We had a wonderful time over thanksgiving. The weather was wonderful. I ran my first 5K in Charleston :) it was the Turkey Day Run! So much fun, it feels great to have been able to accomplish that! lol and Now i am dying to run in the Reindeer Romp in Greensboro, on Sat. December 10th! It is so much fun, good exercise, and its for a good cause!
We have finished decorating for Christmas and the house looks and smells absolutely amazing!! So glad its all up and done! I've even wrapped presents!
Lately i have been on pinterest(of course), but FOOD is the main thing I am looking at!! Tonight I made a Pasta for dinner that i found with Penne, and a sun-dried tomato cream sauce. Very good! Chad was proud! and im going to keep on cooking! i think i bought everything in the grocery store today! haha So tomorrow i am going to make me some CHILI in my new Crock Pot (well chad's)! i really hope it turns out good!! So glad the holidays are here and i am looking forward to more family time! <3

DIY Project: Shutters

So started out and went to Habitat for humanity and found some shutters($5.00 a piece)! I needed some new wall decor and thought some distressed shutters would be a cool look! I picked out mustard yellow for the paint color(the pictures don't really do the color justice)

the shutters
 shutters after sanding
after distressing
so they are hanging in my house!

The weather was absolutely beautiful and i got sunburnt! ahhh AWESOME! anyways the week before that was a wedding for our great friends Matt Kepley and Nikki Galloni. It was a gorgeous country outside wedding, and of course it ends up being the coldest night so far! we all were chilly but luckily they had a toasty fire pit to warm up!!!
