Ok I was so proud of myself I had to share.... since I have the two weeks off from work, and we're not going home this year :( I have a little time to do some crafts. I found this cute idea at Crafting chicks and I made a cute wreath! After making the wreath, I thought it needed a bow so I was headed to Michaels to find ribbon with all the intentions of making one myself. The lady by the flowers was making a bow just like I needed so I asked her to make me one. Ten dollars later, I had a perfect bow to finish my wreath! Aren't you impressed!!!!

I can't believe Thanksgiving has already come and gone! This year, my parents came here to Houston. It's been 2 years since I've had a Thanksgiving with my parents. That might not sound like a long time to some of you, but for me, that's REALLY long! They were here for a little over a week. As soon as they got here, we started working on our kitchen. We tore down the over hanging cupboards and changed the fan to a globe light. Thank goodness they like doing things like this because it was a lot of work! We also put base boards in the bathroom! While they were here, it wasn't all work, we took a couple days and headed to Louisianna to play! We spent one night in Lake Charles and went to Lauberge to play our hand at the penny slots. The next day we headed to New Orleans. On our way, we got caught in traffic.... which is never fun, but there was a really bad accident that had both sides of the road blocked for 3 hours! So we got into New orleans later than what we would've liked. Once we got there, we found out that a college play off game was going on. There were so many people there that it made it hard to move. So again, we tried our hand at the penny slots and the next morning we headed home. I feel like I got really spoiled while the parents were here. Every morning there was breakfast and my mom was doing my laundry and cleaning my house! Thanks mom and dad for coming down, I had sooo much fun with yall! Oh yea, Dave and I are now official house owners! YEEHAW!
