I've been wanting to post some pictures to let y'all know what Graham and I have been up to since getting married that blessed day in December. (I'll post some pictures of our honeymoon when I get on my laptop sooner or later..)
Our first as a married couple.
I made us a fancy steak dinner with rice pilaf and stuffed zucchini, and we used our fancy Waterford china. Luckily, the food was delicious (my 1st time making steak) and we did not break anything. **Disclaimer: those placemats do not match the china. I received them as a gift and used them basically to protect the china and table from each other, and also to catch any spilled food.**
In one of my foodservice classes at BYU, we learned how to fold napkins in cool and interesting ways (Zoolander anyone?), so I found that lecture and went to town on the napkins. This one is called the "fleur de lis". I also wanted to do this to hide Graham's gift--2 Trailblazers tickets. He didn't even notice when they fell out of the napkin. I had to prompt him by saying, "Oh what was that?!" And really.. how awesome is our china? Thanks mom and Joanna!
The living room:
I put some of my favorite colors together--green and brown. I love the pillows and my "I Like You" hospitality book by Amy Sedaris.
Graham is sitting in his usual position on the couch.. Of course.
You can see our lovely furniture here: DVD tower and TV stand from Target, tables from IKEA, and couch/chair duo from a furniture outlet. It looks comfy, but it gives you really bad static!
Graham's present to me--a fruit bouquet from Edible Arrangements. It was WAY better (and much more delicious) than a flower bouquet which is USELESS!
I told Julie I'd post some pictures of Graham's brother's new puppy, Frank. He's a Boston terrier and about the cutest thing I've ever seen. Frank fell asleep on me last night--on his back with his legs straight up in the air. Soooo cute... but I still don't want a dog.
Anyways, that's what we've been up to lately.. I cook, Graham eats (he's gained about ~10 pounds since we got married), we watch TV, and talk about going to the gym.
Ok, so maybe I'm exaggerating a bit with the title.. but that's how it feels. And, my the title for my last update was a little mi...
Now that we'd decided to seriously consider building a house.. We had to figure out how to make it happen. The thought of picking out ...
I promise, my blog will NOT only be about building our house.. but that's kind of the only thing we're doing right now. We don't...
I wish I had more news to share. This process has been so painfully slow that I want to scream, or cry.. or both. I know we will have a hom...
