Pictures of House!

I have hesitated putting up pictures of the house because each time I think about putting up pictures, I want to fix or do something. Until finally, a friend said "there will always be something you want to fix". So I decided if I wanted to post pictures sometime this century, I would just go ahead and do it.

Things on the to do list for the month of May:

*replace chandelier with 2nd matching ceiling fan
*change shell sink vanities in bathrooms
*paint master bedroom a light gray color
*purchase new bedding for master bed
*make cabinet doors for front of built in in living room
*put doggy storm door in

And of course our house wouldn't be complete without a photo of our two children. Aren't they adorable in their daddy's off limits massaging recliner?! :) You can see the guilty look on Barkley's face!

We would like to thank for the majority of furniture you have seen in these pictures. I was literally obsessed for a few weeks there, but I have limited myself to only looking once a day now. We are loving living in Mansfield! Everyone has been EXTREMELY nice in our ward. We even have been invited to dinner at another couple's house next Sunday! Hopefully we will make more friends over the next few weeks. The drive to work has been lengthened by about 10 minutes. We have decided to stay working at our school in Irving next year (my last year teaching). Then I will go wherever I can get a position as a counselor. Evan wants to take over his lead teacher's position when he finishes his degree in 2 years. We feel very blessed to be where we are!

I can't believe I haven't posted about Bella yet! At the end of February, Barkley's owner contacted us. She said that her and her husband decided they didn't want any dogs anymore. They had another puggle, Barkley's sister, and they wanted to know if we would want to buy her. We had thought that maybe Barkley had been abused by his mannerisms. When we sat down to talk about it, we just couldn't bare leaving Barkely alone all day while we were at work. So now we have Bella! Bella is has more pug qualities such as a shorter snout, breathing problems, and a constant need for affection. She is adorable though! Her and Barkley just love playing with each other. We feel like a complete family, for now.

Evan and I are GLEEKS!!! We are in love with Glee! Maybe it's the show choir in us both, but we think this is one of the funniest shows we have seen in a while. We have even bought the soundtrack. Yall should all check it out! The new season starts on Tuesday on Fox. Love it!
