Baby Showers, Lake Trips, House Stuff, Oh My!

We haven't had just one exciting thing happen lately that required it's own special blog, so here is a compiled list of things happening in our lives.
First up is a little sneak peak of some of my favorite things about our new home! You will just have to come over to see the rest...
This is in our entry hall...the Morris sign was a wedding gift from a very sweet friend. (Thanks Caitlin) The sunflowers were actually part of our centerpieces at our wedding reception. It just makes me happy when I walk through the door everyday. 

My little collage wall...our family and friends play such important roles in our lives and it is great getting to feature those that we love in our home.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my curtains. Curtains are something I searched high and low for. My mom ended up finding these hidden gems at bed bath and beyond (love that place!).

I absolutely love being a homeowner...and I am having just too much fun decorating!
A couple weekends ago we were invited to a baby was probably the best baby shower I have ever been too. They invited all their friends (guys and girls) and hosted a little lunch for everyone. Then the girls stayed in the cabin and opened gifts while the boys went outside and did "man things" as I like to say. The boys all brought their shotguns and hung out and shot skeet. It was such a unique way to include everyone. I only took one picture the entire is me with the beautiful mommy to be!
This past weekend we ended up going to the lake with some friends. When we go to the lake with Trevor's family we almost always go to Lake Tenkiller and we camp on an island that is about a 10 minute boat ride from Strayhorn Marina. Here are some fun pictures from the weekend.
Here is where we camped and cooked

Trevor and I in our matching shirts! ;)
Mr. Winston loves the lake!!! He has too much fun!

Our friends Vanessa and Eric
Trevor's tricks! He has grown up doing all these water sports and he is really good at all of them. Me, not so much, so I have retired to just being the photographer!

catching some air

Little Winston freaks out anytime me or Trevor jumps in the water, he will not take his eyes off you to make sure you don't drown! Such a good watch dog!
Beautiful sunset in the evening.
If you know me then you probably know I am the worlds worst camper. But Trevor continues to drag take hopefully I'll get used to it eventually like it! ;)
If you have been to our house then you know that we have a three car garage and that we are making the little garage Trevor's man cave. One of the many projects he has been working on, which will eventually require it's own special post, is a bar.
We really have done a lot of work on this little man cave. We have officially bought a new TV for our living room, so we moved our old TV in the man cave. Since I have quite a bit of time on my hands I painted one of the walls an OSU orange, and slowly but surely we are making progress.
Last but not least, Trevor was so kind and gave me my Anniversary gift this week and it was a big one! We have been needing new tires on my Jeep since about the day we bought it, so it was time to break down and make that happen. Since we bought it, I have always wanted to get a little bit larger tire on it. I'm not one to go off-roading nor do I really NEED bigger tires, but I just like the look a little better when they have over sized tires on them. Since my Jeep just had the standard tires on them, we have to do a little extra work and get spacers put on the Jeep to raise it up a little and then we got larger tires on it. So this was my Anniversary gift and I could not be more happy! Here are some before and after pics! ;)
Here is the Jeep after we bought it...

My Golden Goddess all prettied up! ;)
Life is good!!! Happy Wednesday!!
