4 month anniversary

As most of you already know…we are celebrating our wedding anniversary every month until we hit the big 1 year.  We are doing this just because I love to celebrate things and it gives me an excuse to cook French meals once a month.  We loved the food in Paris so much that we decide that on these monthly anniversaries that I would cook something that we really enjoyed in Paris on our honeymoon.  

On November 17th we celebrated our 4 month anniversary and I cooked Beef Bourguignon and French Chocolate Cake.  Both things were absolutely fabulous!  You can check out the recipes “here” and “here” on my cooking blog.  

Did any of you celebrate your wedding anniversary every month until the one year anniversary?  
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!   I will post our weekend recap later today!

Show Us Your Life- Laundry Rooms and Hallways

Welcome from Kelly’s Korner.  I am going to show you around our laundry room and our little hallway.  
Laundry Room
Our laundry room is not decorated at all but serves its purpose and is very functional.  Hopefully we will be able to redo the floor in the kitchen soon and that means the floor in the laundry room will be redone as well.  
We love our he washer and dryer.  My parents gave these to me when I moved into our house!  I love them so much because we can wash our king size comforter in the washer with no problem!
Doggie cabinet and water machine!  Tucker thought I was going to get a treat for him 😉
 Our key and leash holder.  The door goes out to our garage.  Tucker loves to get in my pictures!
Our hallway…
it separated our office and guest bedroom
can you see the wedding gifts in the background 🙂
I hope you enjoyed the tour.  You can got “here” to see the rest if our home tour!
Have a great weekend!

Miscellany Monday…

It is a new week and a wonderful new new week it is!  So not one with Miscellany Monday over a Carissa’s blog.

{1}
Thanksgiving is next week!  Can you believe it…I can’t.  I am hosting Thanksgiving at our house this year and I am preparing all of the food.  I am really excited but I know that I have a bunch of things to get done before next week.  
{2}
My birthday is in 13 days!  I will be 24!  
{3}
I am in the process of getting a blog makeover!  I can not wait to see what Bailey at b’s {blog} boutique makes for me.  I just love all of her work…she is amazing and so easy to work with!  Her wait list is closed right now but she is opening it back up around the 2nd week in December so go check her out.  Your blog will love you for it 🙂

My 4 month wedding anniversary is on Wednesday!  I am making beef bourguignon for our French meal of the month.  I can not wait to see how it turns out!  
These four months have gone by so fast and  I can not wait to share all of our wedding pictures with you all!

Tucker:  I took him to the vet on Friday to get his levels checked.  I get the results this week and I am hoping for some great news.  He also has a wart like mass on his front leg which is probably nothing but we are having it taken off in a week just to make sure.  I am hoping that the pathologist confirms that it is nothing of concern.  This Friday marks the one year anniversary of when he got his new hip.  He has been doing great this past year and can hop up from laying down like a normal dog.  He can ever run and jump now with out any pain!  I am so glad that he has been the owner of a bionic hip for 1 year now 🙂
{6}
We did some closet organizing this weekend and it is amazing the amount of crap that 2 people can accumulate in just a year.  I am a self proclaimed pack rat but I am one the path to changing after this weekend.  The cabinets in our bathrooms have shown the most improvement after this cleaning adventure.   You can actually look in there and find the things that you are looking for in less that 30 seconds!
{7}
I resumed my half marathon training this weekend and ran 8 miles Saturday.  It felt really good which is great because I have not been training like I should have been.  Our half marathon is less than a month away and I can not wait to see this beautiful lady.  
{8}
I really want one of these for either my birthday or Christmas….hint hint Mama 😉  an Nikon D3000 or D3100…Just think about how great all of the pictures of our doggies and all the food I cook would be if this baby was doing to shooting.
 I will leave you with another picture that I am in love with!  Me and my daddy!

After running 8 miles this morning I could really use some of this…to bad I am not in Paris.

Have a great Saturday!  We are going to see Due Date this afternoon!!!!
