Welcome me!

For two long months I have been getting our lives in order ever since we got married and moved.  Now it is about time I get back to regular activities.  Ben and I love the Virginia Beach area.  It took a while to get used to a new place, but it's so nice to have made a home together.  Our house still needs a big clean-up job (there is no storage room here!)   So we'll probably have to start throwing out things to make a little more room, but we have finally set up a guest room.  Here's a picture.  

We enjoyed a trip this weekend up to northern VA to visit with our families.  On Saturday, we attended an engagement party thrown for Ben's older brother, Albert & his fiance, Carrie.  It was nice to hang out with his family and to see Albert and Carrie before they move to England tomorrow!  On Sunday, Ben and I had lunch with Katherine & Shon, and Tom & Julie and, of course, our cute little niece.  

Next weekend we are looking forward to a trip to see my cousin Chip's football game.  Chip is the head coach of the Catawba Indians!  We will be decked out in red and blue.  We're very excited; this is the first Catawba game we have been able to attend. 

Next month we will finally pick up our Vizsla puppy.  We will be sure to take lots of pictures.

As you can guess, Ben and I have been on the go ever since May (hence our long departure from the blog).  But I don't expect our lives to quiet down anytime soon!  I hope everyone has a great week.

Oh my goodness, you are getting a vizsla?! You know our family had 4 in my lifetime, right? Your picture of them brought back a flood of memories when my Mom would breed them. She even crochet individual collars so we could remember who was who. You'll have to see some of the adorable pics with Todd & Tyler and the'd just melt!

What cute puppies!
I love the cover on your guest room bed - beautiful, matches so well with the vintage bed.
