A November to Remember!

After the honeymoon, we settled into the little RV and I got my craft on... 

meanwhile, the boys got to work on the porch poles... 
Oh yes, back off ladies, he is alllll mine! ;)

Ah, much better pose there, Mr. Hart 

Anyway, check out the awesome new poles!!
Then we moved to the ever so exciting portion of the home makeover... SIDING! 

We had some help from my cool Uncle Steve! Here you see he is having way too much fun getting the bubbles out of the tube. We had to push the air bubbles out, put food coloring in so we could see the water, then use it to level the siding.
My Aunt Cheryl helped too! Check out her awesome work boots  :)

In progress shots of the siding...
 How many men does it take to level siding? Four it seems...

And the finished siding (accompanied by brick around the poles)!! 

Let's take a trip down memory lane and see what we started with shall we?

So, what do you think so far?

I'm working on picking a color for the front door. We have black shutters so I'm all over Pinterest and Houzz trying to find inspiration. 

Until next time...

I'm a Hart... Finally!

Wow. It sure has been a while since I've written a post. Maybe because I was busy participating in this...


Our wedding day was so wonderful! It was a little chilly but the fall colors were perfect and we had a day full of laughter and fun! Of course, there were some flaws, like BUSTING my BOOTY 10 mins before I walked down the aisle, Tiff forgetting her necklace and having to NASCAR it with my sis back to Mt. Washington to get it, forgetting my bracelet my grandmother gave me to wear & a few small things here and there. But if nothing interesting had happened I would have been a little worried to be honest. And I would have zero stories to tell!

I loved everything about our ceremony even though it seemed like 2 mins! I tried so hard to soak it all in, especially at the reception. I wish we could have gotten around to everyone but it was just impossible with our time crunch. If we missed you at the reception ,WE ARE SO SORRY! We love you and want to thank you for coming to celebrate our special day!!

Speaking of thank yous... that's one thing our list of to do's. They are coming your way soon!! We had to wait to get our picture in for the cards and then order the cards. So, we got your gift and didn't forget you just in case you were wondering :)

We also had a wonderful honeymoon at Secrets St. James in Montego Bay Jamaica!

We are sooooo ready to schedule our next vacation!!
