my husband made us a bed!

i should have taken pictures of it's progression, but here it is in it's finished glory. i love it. he wanted a simple platform bed, so he made one. he rocks.

good stuff

i'm reading julia child's book, "my life in france". it is wonderful. there are however, side effects. all i want to do is eat delicious food and do so, overseas. she seems like she was a pretty cool gal.

slowly searching

we are on the look out for a new sofa. we found one that we absolutely adore at crate and barrel. of course, it's not within our budget in the foreseeable future SO, i am prowling around trying to find a cute one that we can afford. i saw one at macy's online that would be great, but we haven't gone up there to let it audition. here's the c and b for $1600. and the macy's for $700. there's no doubt in my mind that you're paying for a better looking sofa, but i'm just being realistic. the one from macy's is nice looking and if it's comfy we might actually be able to get it within the next few months.

thank you 2010

this year has been one of the most exciting of my life. i must admit, it has also been a blur. we found out we were having a boy in january, hearing the heartbeat was amazing. february brought snow and valentine's day in nebraska. march was met with a considerably larger belly. feeling graham move around gave us constant smiles. the spring in omaha was gorgeous. being far away from our friends and family was tough, especially expecting our first kiddo. but, the finale of the nasty winter and lovely green days helped a ton. june 10th, 2010 will forever take me back to my phone call to Will telling him the contractions had started! june 11th, just after 5a.m., graham decided to introduce himself properly. great news in august, moving back to texas! scooped up our bundle and headed south. Will and i celebrated our second wedding anniversary in sept. a month later we are in our first home!!! it has been incredible watching graham grow and absorb the world around him. i am truly lucky and in love with two of the loveliest people in the world.
it's been a busy year. i know i have neglected my friends and i DO love them. the dust is indeed beginning to settle.
