the exterior

We have been enjoying our summer in Memphis, and thankfully it hasn't been TOO hot until this past week.  There have been quite a few nights that we have enjoyed sitting on the patio and there was a light breeze!  We know the humid summer is coming, so we definitely enjoyed those nights while we had them.

So far it has been quite eventful at our house... The roof project finally took place and our house looks like a brand new house.  So thankful that project is finally behind us.  Here she was before (with the roof color samples up)....

And here she is now.  The final phase of the exterior updates.

We are so pleased.  Feels like a brand new house!

Just for fun... Here's the house when we bought it.  We have come a LONG way!

This place has been a labor of love for T and I, and we have enjoyed every minute of it.  It really feels like home and I can't wait to start our family here and share it with this little peanut.  We are so blessed.

A few other projects have taken place this spring summer... I'll be back with those!


lots and lotts and lots

Lots and lots of happenings around our house lately...

Dudley's brother graduated from high school (kind of weird considering I've known him since he was in the 4th grade!! He's so old...) and we had a fun celebration in Oxford with the Carters.  T's sis Katy took lots of pics of us all and I took zero. Whoops!

We headed to Shreveport for our annual Memorial Day weekend with the Lotts... It was extra fun this year because we got to FINALLY meet their sweet and precious and did I say sweet little Jewel.  She was such fun to play with... We lounged at the pool... ate... had some more pool time... watched our husbands make a hilarious video... played with Jewel... ate some more... It was just what we needed and with some of our best friends...

Gibson was extra exhausted from his weekend following Biscotti around (and following me wherever I went)!

I've been craving fruity drinks... This was a new (to me) drink on our road trip home... Hit the spot.  I hear next time I need to try green machine?

While we were gone some of our other bests had their first baby girl, so when we got back we went to finally meet her and she is just so so sweet and snuggle-y.  Look at that precious little face!

And today... well it's a big day at our house.  Ever since we moved into this place we've known that a new roof was (desperately) needed.  Today is the day.  They are already hard at work up there and we are relieved to finally have this project behind us.  Can't wait to see the final product!

Bye bye old roof!!

And on the baby front... little peanut is just growing away!
