I promise I'm studying

But everyone needs a quick lunch break, right?

Here are some photos I found on Houzz for our Bedroom inspiration. We will have to see if I can talk Travis into it!

Basically, I am wanting to do cool mix of grey, gunmetal, and purple. Something chic, pretty and moody. These pics mainly show the colors I want to use, but not the style. I am still loving the gorgeous, clean mid century look. I want to make a headboard, and of course I am dying to put up wall paper or paint wall paper or something. But I don't know that I have talked Travis into that either!

Ok -- back to studying!

What I want to do

Have I told ya'll about my impulse purchases recently?

Lately, Travis and I have been making some impulse purchases (read: second hand furniture that requires a lot of fixing up). For my birthday, Travis let me buy this gorgeous couch that needs a total over haul! And then last week we bought this wonderful old dresser that will work perfect for combining all of our things, but needs a good sanding and new paint job!

Anyway -- what I want to do right now is upload all of the pictures of my lovely couch and dresser, and tell you all about how my wonderful husband spent all of Satuday afternoon outside carefully trying to remove the fabric from the old abused couch, but I can't do any of those things because I have my board exam for OB/GYN friday and I need to study!

After my test on Friday, and after I get to hang out with Amanda B who is making the journey to Lubbock, I will post the pictures of our couch as we figure out how to take all of this fabric off in the right order. Have I mentioned that we are learning this as we go along! (uh oh) Oh well -- we are having fun!

Welcome Back!

If you are coming back to check on us after our long absence then we would like to say WELCOME BACK!

If you are visiting us for the first time, then WELCOME!

I started this blog last spring and in the midst of Step 1 I got behind. After step was over I decided that I wanted to customize our blog; so I have been working on that since July! So, now that all of that is out of the way I am free to blog away!

So, a quick update on our lives! If you look below you can see some pictures that I promised to put up, and then found out I didn't have camera cords. So, after a long delay I put those up! After spending the summer in Houston while I was studying for Step 1, Travis and I are back in Lubbock and working away! Travis is taking 9 hours and working part time at a structural and architectural engineering firm. He is doing so well -- studying away as I type this. He has had his first test already (and made a 95!). I am so proud of him, he is working super hard!

I started back to class in July -- and so far have spent time in Psychiatry and OB/GYN. I have gotten to do some awesome stuff, including delivering my first baby which was SO incredible! I am enjoying seeing all of the different sides of medicine and learning as much as possible!

Anyway, I just wanted to welcome you all back to our new and improved blog! Be on the look out for more fun posts to come!

Honeymoon pics teaser

Here are just a few pictures of our honeymoon. Justin was very generous and let Travis borrow his nice camera since Travis' had just been stolen, but we forgot to get the pictures off before we gave it back to him. We took most of our pictures on his camera, but here are a few that we took on mine.

We had such a wonderful relaxing time!

Eating sushi!

Our romantic candle lit dinner -- and the yummy dessert!
We went on an awesome trip to Chichen Itza and took some really cool pictures. Once we get those I will put those up!

Happy Bithday Travis!

Well, no doubt this post is a bit late! Haha! Now that I have gotten my camera cords back from my Mom I can finally post some of the long promised pictures of Travis on his Birthday!

This year Travis turned 26! It was also Travis' first birthday to spend in Lubbock so I wanted to make it extra special for him. Unfortunately, despite my best efforts to make his day perfect someone else had other plans...Travis was rear ended on his way to class and so his day started off on a super sour note!
Oh well, Travis didn't let it ruin his day and we had a bunch of fun. Enjoy the long over due pictures!

Snow on Travis' birthday!!!!

Travis enjoying some Happy Bithday chocolate chip muffins, and finishing home work which is why he looks grumpy!

Sydney tells Travis "HAPPY BIRTHDAY DADS!!"

Travis' meal of choice on his birthday! I hate fast food (and Whataburger in particular)so he never gets to eat it! Since I told him he could have anything he wanted...this is what he choose!

I feel so very blessed to be paired with such a wonderful man, even though its not his birthday today I wanted to take a second and say that I am a very lucky, blessed woman!
