Do Re Mi

A few of my favorite things
1) The Sound of Music
2) Spontaneous Dance

Darlin' I believe it's almost football season

So on Friday we held Matt's fantasy football draft at our house. We had the entire league over except for my dad who was able to be drafting live online from Michigan. My brother Brady from Richmond, VA and my future brother in-law DJ from Gadsden, AL both made the trip to Charleston for the event. Here is a pic of our living room. That's right.. we hooked up our laptop to the 52'' TV.
By my side was one of my favorite people... Mrs. Sara Ruth Miller. She is something else. She brings such fun and brightness where ever she goes. I love that we actually made referee shirts out of electrical tape... and we wore them proudly.

Here is another view of the room. I'm on the couch w/ my brother...

Afterwards we all went to the Twisted Fish. {previously know as the Breakroom.} Of course I had to show everyone the horrible picture of Matt on the wall... Love you babe.

Here is Sara Ruth and my brother trying to get Taylor to take a picture

Overall we had a great time and we are all looking forward to football season.

darlin' I have a kitchen idea

The other day it was decided that we need a pot rack for our kitchen. We love our kitchen. We love how open it is and we love how it flows... however we have hardly any cabinet space.

So I found this little slice of inspiration here which would work on a blank wall we have.

The plan is to build just one shelf for cookbooks which will be great since currently they are out of reach over the fridge. Here is another pic of the same kitchen... this is sooo me. Maybe someday.

Darlin' I think I started a blog.

After a couple of months of pondering what my blog would consist of, I decided it would be about me and my soon to be husband. We live in beautiful Charleston, S.C. and consider ourselves to be pretty laid back and very fortunate. More about us later.

On to my first topic.... drum roll pah-lease...... His name is Garf, or so Matt named him. Lets preface this by saying that since we bought our home in February there have always been random house cats hanging around. We have named our home, 'The Scratch Pad' because of this. I swear we never feed them or even give them water but this is their hangout. My hypothesis is based on the fact that we are one of the few neighbors with trees in our yard. This obviously holds the bird population for Palmetto Hall Blvd. I digress... This unusually cool August evening (85 degrees) an old creepy cat came lurking around and still hasn't left. Of course at first my heart felt for the half-blind feline but after Garfield stared us down for an hour and circled us like a shark for an hour more I was over him. He's been throwing himself against our house and is trying to cling itself to Matt. Here is Matt giving some love to G. And no, the tongs he is holding was not for torture but for grilling dinner. Below is a pic of Matt's 'Man Dinner'. It was yummus.

Even now, 3 hours since the sun set and we've settled in, Garfield is at our door scratching and clawing to get in. I feel like I'm being watched... however now we believe it may be one of Matt's deceased relatives. So Garf will now be called Carl.

Dear Carl,

I hope you find what you are looking for.


Thanks everyone and stay tuned
