Tennessee Vacation

After the craziness of moving, Rusty and I made our getaway to Tennessee for our annual vacation. We spent a week enjoying the beautiful weather and mountains! We had a busy but also relaxing week. We spent 2 days hiking though the mountains, went white water rafting, horseback riding, shopping and much more! It was a much needed break for us and we really enjoyed our time there! Flip though the album for tons of pictures!

Our first home!

Our most exciting news is that Rusty and I have bought our first home! We are so excited to finally have a place to call our own and stop renting! We closed on the house in late April and quickly painted inside and moved in a few days later. The home is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath with nice vaulted ceilings. There are many things we love about the house like the big bath tub and double sink in the master bath but we are looking forward to making some improvements as well!

Someday, we would like to put a back porch on, paint the exterior and change the linoleum to tile! For now, we have been very busy fixing up the front yard and getting settled! We have some pictures posted of the house but soon we will have some before and afters to show all the hard work we have done!

Kara's Graduation!

At the beginning of May my good frined Kara graduated from the UCF nurisng program! What an accomplishment. I was able to sit with her family and watch her graduate at the nursing pinning ceremony. This definitly brought back a lot of memories for me! It's hard to believe it's been a year since my graduation!! In June, Kara will be moving to Tennessee to work as an RN at UT medical center. So excited for her but sad to see her go!

Let's play ball!

This spring Rusty joined a softball league with some of the guys at work. He used to play baseball in high school (as many of you know) and was a very good ball player. Slow pitch soft ball was a little hard to get used to at first but he has really started to play well! Most importanly, it's been a good way to get back into doing something he really loves.

The first season ended a few weeks ago (a total of 4 teams playing each other several times!), and their new season just started! This time, they will be playing 5 other teams so that should keep things interesting!

To the beach with the family!

Well, it's been quite awhile since this was updated but so much has happened since then so here we go:

In April we got a visit from my Uncle Doug and Aunt Kristi and my cousin, Robert. We were fortunate enough to get to spend a day at the beach with them. Paige and I showed them around Cocoa Beach and we had a great time :) Check out the Beach 2008 folder for more photos!
