After: Part 1 of 3

This past weekend, JP and I did a wonderful job of getting everything out of boxes and into place. We still have a few areas to work on which are the guest bedroom and bathroom. That's where all of our "extra" stuff was at our apartment, so now we much figure out where to store our meaningful junk and what we just don't need. I'm working on a few projects for decorating the downstairs which will come later so today I will debut the 2nd floor which is the main floor of our home!

This is the view of the living room from when you first walk up the stairs.

Turn to the right and you will see this!

Close up of the wall art! The phrases were given to us by Ms. Robin when she threw us our couples shower!

Close up of the book case. The frame on the top shelf is from my brother Ben and his best friend Ryan. The frame itself if actually a mirror with a beautiful quote on the bottom :)

View of the living room from behind the couch.

The other corner behind the couch. We're hoping to get a nice table to put beneath the plate art.

View of the living room from inside the kitchen! It's such an open space! No wonder why this is Maggie's favorite floor to be on.

Kitchen from the table. I love my red walls!

Our clock and lab calendar. We are working on creating a wine cork board using corks from all of our wine bottles. Once this gets finished, it will go beneath the clock and the calendar will be moved elsewhere.

Our little table. A new kitchen table is next on my new furniture list!

View of the dining area from the kitchen.

There is still a lot of wall space over by the table and I dont' have anything quite large enough to fill the area! As you can see, there are still a few pictures that need to find a home and a box full of "parts" waiting to find its proper place. We actually met with our landlords last night, Michael and Stephanie. They are awesome! Such a nice couple and totally laid back. Stephanie gave me some tips on what she did to fill that wall space so hopefully I will find something soon to go there.

Enough about my second floor and on to Miss Maggie. She is doing wonderful. The past two days she has had a total of 2 accidents in the house! She's only been here for a week and is making vast improvements. She is so smart and mischievous which means she definitely knows the word 'NO!' Here are a few new pictures I've taken.

Dancing with Mom!

I can't get this to turn, but I take her on a walk every day at lunch time for about 20 minutes, sometimes longer if she's been a good girl :) She LOVES to run in the snow. I mean, who wants to walk on the street when you can run through snow that is sometimes as tall as you?!?!

I'm heading off to Houston tomorrow to experience the warmer climate and then run! It's supposed to be raining so pray that the weather is sound enough to keep all the runners safe and healthy! I'm not aiming for a new personal record, but instead to finish under 2:15. I don't think it should be too hard, but I don't want to push too hard after the stress of the move and an achy knee.

I am so excited for Nicole to pick me up from the airport, to see my mom, dad, Tricia, Alexis and Dixie, to visit with the Gouglers and to spend time with Julie and Chris!

Until next time...

With love and God bless,
Amy, JP and Maggie
