Thanksgiving and house makeover

So, of course life is always busy around the holidays and this year is no exception. Getting married has added to all the chaos of it as well. This past weekend, I moved out of my little house in Cahaba Heights where I shared a home with 2 roommates and into my sweet friend Kristina's house a couple miles down the road. I also moved ALL of my furniture and other stuff to Stephen's (Kristina already had a guest room with everything I need for 3 months). With the help of two wonderful people, Chip and Kate, Stephen and I were able to move my furniture and organize the house! Ah, relief. There is still a TON to do-finish up the paint in the bathroom, paint the laundry room, find a home for everything, clean out and give to Goodwill, etc. Thankfully though, the guest room is set up and new pillows, mattress pad and furniture is in there (even have pictures of the bedside tables), the master bedroom is full of furniture and organized, kitchen is clean and pots and pans put away and the laundry room now holds my washer and dryer!

Here we are priming the bedroom and the finished product.

I am getting settled in to Kristina's home and starting to get pumped up about Thanksgiving break! Stephen and I are going to Mobile to see the rest of my family and celebrate my dad's 60th birthday!! We also have our first pre-martial counseling session this coming weekend too!

Last night, my small group, a couple girls from another Brook Hills small group and Stephen's small group got together for a Thanksgiving feast! We ate turkey, ham, dressing, sweet potato casseroles, mac n cheese, green beans rolls and 7 different kinds of desserts! It was so much fun and a blessing to hang out with fellow believers and get to know each other! I had so much fun it was hard to leave! Thanks Mikey for hosting at your house!

Okay, okay back to work. It's been nice blogging again! Catch you all on the flip side!


  1. YAY to all of that!!!!

    When you said "flip side" it made me think of The Office when Michael Scott says "Catch you on the flippity-flip!"

    See you this weekend for some turkey and fun!! Love you!

  2. It sounds like things are coming together. We are so happy for you both and it will be great to not have to worry about this after the wedding. See you soon!

  3. :) love those "pre-martial" sessions. That's before you earn your black belt, right? Just to prepare you for those minor marital woes?

    Sounds like you're having fun! Hope you're well! -Page
