Helpful One!

As Matt worked so hard to finish hanging blinds throughout our entire house, Wrigley decided she could be of GREAT assistance!

New House Pictures!!!

Here's what you have all been waiting of the new Cherry house. It has taken weeks to get boxes unpacked, appliances installed, and blinds hung. There are still some rooms that we would like to get painted and some landscaping but that's another time after the budget is replenished.

Our new house and Wrigley's big back yard!

Laundry room (love the color!), kitchen with new appliances & living room from kitchen

Living room from entrance

Here are pictures of the future Man Cave...AKA Cubs and Baseball Basement
Pictures of the bedrooms didn't turn out, they were too dark AND who wants to see pictures of bathrooms.

Three Years!!

Yesterday Matt and I celebrated three years of marriage! I can't believe that it was three years ago that we tied the knot on the HOTTEST day in June. I love looking back at our wedding pictures to relive all the fun with family and friends.

No Longer Cherry's on Cherry Blossom

Our old house on Cherry was very sad to sell our first home together!

Memorial day weekend, Matt and I moved into our new house!
It all started around Easter weekend. We weren't looking to buy a new house or move...especially in the middle of baseball season. One of Matt's friends was on a walk when he found a house for sale that had all the requirements of a house we may want in the future. He called Matt to tell him about the new find and how convenient, there was an open house the next day. So after church, Matt and I went to the open house and fell in love! We decided to put our house on the market and see what happened. In the mean time, there were days of negotiating over the price of the new house. To our surprise, a low-ball offer was accepted! Twenty-one days on the market and our Cherry Blossom house sold!

Pictures of the NEW Cherry house are on the way! Stay Tuned!

Indy 500

In May, Matt and I went to the Indy 500! This was my first experience of the 500 and much to my surprise...I LOVED it!!! We sat up high in turn three so we were able to see lots of action both in turn three and turn four. In all our excitement of getting ready for the 500, packing lunches, buying sunscreen, making arrangements for Wrigley...Matt forgot his hat and sunglasses. So, on our way into the track Matt purchased sunglasses and a bandanna for $1.50 from some kid on the corner. Now for all of you wondering...Who buys sunglasses from the kid on the corner? You now know, my husband!
