A surprise in June!

This past June I turned 27 and got the most wonderful birthday surprise ever ~ a quick weekend visit from one of my beloved bff's! It was something totally unexpected and flew by way too fast but I loved every minute of it. Thank you Kristin for making my 27th even that more memorable. Love you!

While she was here visiting, we made an afternoon trip to the Des Moines Zoo! It was our first time to go and even though it is on the smaller scale compared to most zoo's, it was a pretty awesome place. There were several themes throughout the zoo that coincided with the country the animals where from, hands on interaction with some of the animals (Blaykleigh was a tad apprehensive about feeding the birds at first - lol) and it was laid out well! We will definitely be going back in the future.

Home is where the heart is.

Come July 19th, we will have been in our house 4 months! For the most part we have settled in nicely, although there are still things to be done … like finish hanging stuff up on our walls and painting along with other odds and ends!!! Slowly but surely we will get there! After all, with Jason's work schedule and my nursing school schedule things have been very fast paced around here, leaving very little "down" time. But what we have done so far has really made our new house into a home and we love it! Here are some pictures for those of you who have been wanting to see and I am sure as the months pass, there will be more to come.

Well that's all I have for you right now! Our bedroom and the office still have a lot of stuff that needs to be done so those pictures will have to wait. Hope you enjoyed the tour ;) We miss all of our Colorado, Kansas and Texas family and friends dearly - you're welcome for a visit anytime!
