Tonight I'm home alone because Albino has to turn around the store so he is working until 1 am. I thought I'd make my own Christmas wreath since they are all about $30 in all the stores I've looked at. However - my creation came out really sad!! I only used what I had around the apartment so I was limited. I used tinfoil for the wreath and then covered it with white and green ribbon I had from my wedding. Here are a couple pictures of my trial...

I was at a thrift store a few months ago and found an old, dirty wooden stove for a child. I couldn't resist the $1.50 price tag. I cleaned it and painted it for my niece, Allie. I love you Allie and wish I could be closer to you! You'll get your little stove at Christmas :)
It has taken me a long time to figure out how I want things decorated in the little apartment. Being just out of college - we don't have much but we're making do. I love our little place. Here are a few pictures of just the front room and the bathroom. Hopefully soon I'll have pictures of the bedroom and kitchen!
This is the wall looking into the kitchen. We have our piano and guitar there and love playing together!
Our computer/tv wall. We don't have a tv, we just use the computer. Yes - that is a child's desk and it says "megan" haha. I got it in college from a thrift store!

the other wall in the bathroom.MORE TO COME!
Okay - so it's been a long while since I've written anything on this blog. But I promise- I'm now going to start updating it again!! A lot has happened since I've last written: graduation, wedding showers, best friends wedding, and my wedding!! Here are a few pictures highlighting the past few months.

Albino's niece, Rachel, had her 7th birthday party on April 4th. We went to her Queen and Kings birthday party. There was a face painter and all the kids looked awesome. Everyone also made queen hats and king crowns. It was actually a lot of fun to hang out with Albino's family and be creative with a bunch of cute kids!!
We can't wait to have Rachel be part of our wedding as our flower girl! She's the cutest :)

My sister Christy had her baby girl on Friday night. Her name is Samantha Lynn and was 7.2 lbs. She is beautiful! However, many of you know that Samantha is suffering from many complications. It is a miracle in itself that she has lived this long! Praise the Lord. My parents, Andy and Leslie, Ryan's parents and I were all able to be at the hospital all day and see her. We were not able to hold her because she is hooked up to oxygen to help breathing. She also has a broken arm! So sad. She's as cute as can be and I love just sitting in the NICU and talking to her :) Keep the family in your prayers. Samantha is still very sick and cannot breathe without help and her little body is working really really hard!
