First Pie Attempt

     Us girls did lots of cooking and baking growning up, then at Penn View, but today was my first attempt to make a pie. I had some apples that needed to be used, and thought I would try it for the fun of it. :) Tonight Michael and I had a good time eating it with Pop, Mama, and Granny. I had tried to find some leaf cookie cutters, but didn't have much time to look, so just did some leaf things in the pastery. I look forward to perfecting the pie making business. :)

Pictures of Decorating for the Reception

     I thought I would post some pictures of us decorating for the reception. Michael's sister and bro-in-law were a huge help, and I definatly couldn't have done it without them!! I am kind of sad I don't have any pictures of it fully done, with the chair covers and all, but I'm sure there are some around somewhere, just have to locate them. :)

**Honeymoon Snapshots**

     We went to Pigeon Forge on our honeymoon, and then spent one day in Gatlinburg and walked through all the neat little shops they have, and went to the Aquarium too. We also road a chair lift that took us up the side of the mountain. It was the first time I had rode one, but I liked it.  We also went to the Dixie Stampede, which was really cool to watch.
     One day went went to Dollywood, which was fun, but rather interesting because I loved to little shops and shows and Michael loved the roller coaster rides, which I was to scared to get on.:( We also went to this show called the Temptations, it was an "impersonation" show of this group from the 1060's, but had one member of the original group still singing, so that was really cool. We had isle seats on the second row! :)
     We also got to eat out at cool places like Mel's Diner, and oldies style diner, and then places like Olive Garden....

Our Honeymoon Cabin

We had an awesome cabin just a little ways off the main road in Pigeon Forge. It had a loft which was the bedroom with a heart shaped jucusie and half bath. Then downstairs had a living room with fireplace, full bath and kitchen. On the front porch was a hot tub, which was awesome. :) It was a very cozy cabin.

There Are New Additions Coming Soon to Our Household...

     Our dear guinea pig, Allie, is very pregnant, and will have her pups any day according to all the signs she is giving. I had noticed in the weeks leading up to the wedding she was getting bigger, but just thought she was gaining a little weight, but after arriving back from the honeymoon, it is very obvious she is pregnant. I had her out of her cage and while petting her I could feel them moving and kicking around in there... It was kinda cool. :) It is rather a surprise to us, but she must have been bread right before we got her....Kimb.

My sweet man bought me flowers to enjoy the week before our wedding. He knows how much I love them and would enjoy a cheerful bouquet to bring extra joy to a very busy week. :) I think they are beautiful....

*New Kitchen Curtains*

    Last night my Mom took us shopping for new blinds and curtains for the kitchen windows...And this is what we found. :) The curtains are a Cafe/Paris Theme. I love them, they add so much color and life to my little cozy kitchen. :) .... Lest you think I have all the say around here.... Michael likes them to :) LOL...Kimb
PS. I am going to take the candle holders down and maybe put a clock there, because I don't think they match to well. They're a little to country I think....

The Final Countdown.... :)

Just one more week to go!!!! Can't wait....Kimb
