Quick Picture Update

Here's a quick picture update of the past few months:

We started tackling our dining room which prior to now was a beautiful shade of pale yellow with hints of bright red peaking through (awesome). Maybe the goal was sunrise on a wall? We may never know. 

 The first project up was a wall o'wood a la Bower Power. It's about 90% done (needs one board replaced & some artwork), so we're holding off on finished product pics until then. We also painted the accent wall white because the brown wood wall on brown wood flooring was a little too much.

Yay for newly painted grey walls and black window accents. 

We're going to attempt to build our dining room table in the next few weekends using this plan from Knock Off Wood. It'll be our first adventure in building furniture, and we have a feeling that we're either going to succeed splendidly or fail miserably. Either way, we'll be sure to document it for you.

We had some 10 year reunion fun. Gotta love being a member of the Class of 2000!

Katie took the plunge and got bangs. 

We spent some quality time at the Jersey Shore (insert t-shirt time joke here).

Where we found out our golden retriever is absolutely terrified of water. This is his Hellz No look. 

Bo took Ryan for a couple of runs on the beach

And after a few days he decided to try and get his paws wet with a little coaxing from Katie.

We attended the wonderful morning wedding of Ryan's cousin in Virginia Beach on 10/10/10.
Beach + Early Morning Sunshine + Brunch Reception = Amazing.

Katie decided to go on a baking spree. This is the Pioneer Woman's Tres Leches Cake.
She couldn't eat it, but everyone said it was amazing, so it gets a definitely recommend rating. Plus you gotta love any recipe that has step by step instructions with pictures. It makes baking so easy!

Katie & the best roommates EVER had a reunion in D.C. 
Somehow, the only picture is with this fuzzy blanket. 
However, the weekend was amazing (as was the fuzzy blanket)! 

We attended the beautiful wedding of our friend Katie B. in Virginia. This was the first wedding where the person getting married knew both of us before we knew each other. Weird and awesome all at the same time. 

We ended up going to a ghetto bar between the wedding and the gorgeous reception at Mount Vernon. 
Ghetto = Peering into Painted, Boarded Windows.

Yay for seeing VA friends! It was like a 2007 reunion. 

This is Katie & her bestest Steph doing the "Rawr" move. 
RAWR means, "I love you" in dinosaur.

So with that, RAWR. 

Have a great night everyone!
