Just catching up!

Weird little tid bit before I begin....I have my Pandora station on and you know what is playing? "The Details are in the Fabric" by Jason Mraz (um, hello, that is where the title of my blog came from!) How ironic!

Anyway....I had a wonderful weekend! My husband and I got to FINALLY go to a game in Tuscaloosa together! Our story goes like this...we both spent four years in Tuscaloosa, 2003-2007, we didn't know each other one bit! We had mutual friends (kind of) but we never ran into each other! CRAZY I know! So, technically we have never been to Tuscaloosa "together"! And we certainly haven't been there for my favorite part, a football game! SO, this weekend, we went with some friends of ours to the game and had so much fun! Alabama beat Mississippi State so it was a great ending to a great day!

In front of the stadium!!

At the game!

As for this weekend, I am working a Henry Cho (a comedian) show on Friday night at work and then cleaning my house and addressing those awesome Christmas cards I got from Shutterfly (quickly, did I mention)!! Emory will be enjoying opening season! I can't believe Thanksgiving is upon us! Seriously ladies, if you haven't looked at a calendar lately, it is NEXT WEEK! Yikes! We are hosting it at our house for our first married Thanksgiving!

Well, I hope you all have a great rest of the week, it is all downhill from here! Oh, I am going to be hosting a 31 party, and I will be having a "catalogue order" portion, so be looking for more info on that because some of the proceeds go to a charity! In the meantime, go here to see their stuff!

Here it is....

Well, we have finally finished the dining room and we have a new table (minus 4 more chairs we are still waiting on). I know I have promised pictures, but I really wanted until we got the table and got our curtains hung so you could see the total effect! So, without further is the new dining room!

Here is the whole dining room...the new paint color, the newly hung curtains, the table, and our two curio cabinets!

Our Alabama dishes in one cabinet!

Our china/fancy stuff cabinet....

An up-close of the table (with 4 of 8 chairs) and silver charger plates just trying to see what looks best.

I didn't want to leave you without a picture of yours truly...(with my brother on the left and my husband on the right, grandmother and little step-bro in the background.) This is when we went to Lynchburg to Miss Mary Bobo's for lunch!

Hope you all liked my dining room tour...let me know what you think and what you think I can do to decorate! I need ideas! Should I keep it set with my china or what? We have 12 foot ceilings. Do I need a centerpiece? If yes, what do I need? Hope you all are having a great day! It is almost Friday! Finally! Leave me ideas!!!

Christmas is only 53 days away today!! Oh my!

Did you know that as of today there are only 53 days until Christmas? Really? I can’t believe that today is the first day of November!! It is my first Christmas as a wife! I am SO excited! I would decorate tomorrow if we weren’t hosting Thanksgiving at our house! But you better believe that the weekend after, everything is going up! Since this has been a big year for us, I really would like to send out some special Christmas cards! Especially to people who were unable to come to the wedding or people who I don’t talk to that often! Since we have gotten married, been to France for our Honeymoon and added a furry addition to our family, I think it is safe to say that a photo card would be the best way to go! I usually just send out about 10 or 20 cards to people that I pick up from the generic card section, but I think 2010 was our year and we should share it in pictures! Shutterfly has some of the cutest cards! I don’t think one photo would be enough for us! I think we need about 4! One from our wedding, one from our honeymoon and one for each of our furry kids! They are after all, part of the Winters family too!

I like this one, because it has room to add what happened throughout the year! But I am not sure if it is too much. Although I think I like it!

I also LOVE this one because of the monogram (since it is our first Christmas as a family) and the room for pictures!

This one is cute too! It also has the monogram, but not as many pictures!

Which one is your favorite?? Please help me out! Also, if you too would like 50 free cards, check out Shutterfly’s blogger promotion and see how you can too!!
