We Bought A House

We are so excited because we bought our very first home!! It is in the process of being built and it is so much fun to go check on it weekly to see the progress that has been made! We can not wait to move in in September :) :)

The day we bought it!

Standing in our shower!

Insulation is in!!

September can't come soon enough!!

Until next time,

New York!

One night Maury and I went to my parents house to hang out and drink some wine.  While we were there, my mom told me of this idea she had..."I think we should go to New York!" she said. Of course I agreed and we got on our laptops and started looking at flights and hotels.  Maury and my dad were sitting in the other room, wondering what we were up to, because of the big smiles on our face! We clued them in, and they thought we were crazy!! We told them they didn't have to go and surprisingly that made them both say, "Okay, as long as we don't have to go!"

We booked our tickets, found a room, packed our bags and were on a flight less than 2 weeks later!! Talk about spontaneous!! Going to New York with just my mom was truly the trip of a lifetime. We shopped until we had blisters (and then some more), ate whatever we wanted, tried to find celebrities, and just had plain FUN! Thanks for such a great time momma and thanks Dad and Maury for letting us go :) Here are some of my favorite pictures from the trip!!

It has been way to long!

I can't believe I have completely neglected my blog! I doubt anyone even reads it, which is fine, but I do want to at least keep it up most of the time so we have sometimes to look back on.  I recently looked through all of my posts from when we were in Washington and it brought back such good memories!

When we moved back to Fresno, we moved into my parents house before we got our own apartment. It was so nice to have such a smooth transition and to slowly look for an apartment and not be rushed. Once we moved in, I was able to decorate and do some painting.  Here are some before and after pictures of our apartment now! (These are all from my phone, so they might not be the best!)



This looks white but its an aqua color

White coffee table


After--it's white like the coffee table

Still moving in but you get the idea

A better idea of the aqua color table

Our living room

I love the chairs and pillows at the end of our bed

Until next time,

Brie :)
