I have so much to blog about, because we just got internet YESTERDAY! Geez! Thank goodness I made the plunge for my i phone before we moved. This phone has been my best friend! As much as I have made fun of Suri, she has yet to let me down! She gets us around town pretty well, considering several of the roads here have changed names and are still changing. Lovely! Thank goodness for pictures, or I would have to say this past month and half has been a bit of a blurr! I'll do my best! AT&T, thank you for making my life so difficult! Had we not decided to "bundle"with you (which means you are basically married to your internet source) you would be adios! I am going to back track to some of our last days in Birmingham. We had a last minute backyard cookout the week we moved. It was very bitter sweet! I wanted to enjoy our backyard and patio one more time. Jeremy worked so hard to make it family friendly and beautiful...and to me, it was! We made many fun memories in this backyard, Greer's first birthday was a big one!
So sweet! I hope to take this picture again in the fall at tailgates, which we WILL be back for!
Dad always trying to turn this baby into a backyard country baby.
Geez Greer! Poor Hannah can barely breath. This is definitely Greer's new thing. He kisses everybody from boys, girls, dogs, and stuffed animals. I take one any time I can get one from this sweet boy!
We watched a movie with Drewby the night before the movers came. He was always up for a good movie night and TCBY on the couch with us. Our house was a disaster, but we didn't care. Miss you Drewby! Come visit us!
This is the picture that still makes my stomach hurt. I kept thinking maybe the movers will get lost and never find our house. It didn't happen! I kept myself busy and stayed out of the house as much as possible during the move. Not.a.fun.time.at.all! Once again, out of sight, out of mind. The movers were amazing to say the least! They packed and moved EVERYTHING in our house. I didn't know this service existed, but I think it is the best way to go! They made our transition as pleasant as it could be and had us packed and moved in three days!
Here is our kitchen that I am still in love with! I still want to come back here and cook one last meal! Jeremy put blood, sweat...and the tears came from me, into this project! I am still so proud of him for coming up with a plan and executing it to the end! I love the handy man that he is! Unfortunately, I have a feeling this will not be his last renovation! It is worth it in the end, but awful in the process! I will keep telling myself that if this time comes again. I still remember the crawl space being exposed the week of our wedding. Believe it or not, the floor was in when we returned from our honeymoon. Good times!
Here is our old home in Homewood. What a sweet and special place we called home! It was the perfect first home. I still cannot drive by it. Not yet, anyway! Those other cars look so strange parked in our driveway! Anyway, there are so many wonderful memories living in this home.....our first house together, the place we brought Greer home from the hospital, Greer's first birthday, several dear friend's wedding and baby showers(Jessica & Gavin's Baby Shower(Barrett), Katie & Tony's Baby Shower(Claire), Joe & Melissa's Baby Shower(Anne Charlotte), Dave & Stephanie's Wedding Shower), and many more parties.....New Year's Eve, Christmas Eve, Easter, and birthdays....not to mention the many last minute cookouts.
Here is where we live now. I know, the picture is not great! I am working on finding another. This is the picture we took when we were looking at houses. We actually have grass now. I would have never picked the blue color, but it has grown on me more and more. This is where I call home....for now anyway! I'll continue to "paint me a birmingham" in my mind!
