Well...I've been married ALMOST six months! We are very happy and still trying to get used to all of the madness. Lucie and I had gotten used to our quiet time alone at night. Well, now there is David and me; two girls and three dogs!! It's madness here! But, I love every minute of it!
I think I last posted that we were house hunting. We have put that idea aside and we are just working on updating this house. It's a SLOW process. I am NOT good at picking out paint colors, so my dining room is currently has primer on it and has for about 2 months. :-) SOON...I will have color on that wall again.
Lucie is adjusting, well...she's TRYING. Sort of. She's EXTREMELY jealous of Daisy and we are not allowed to show any affection towards Daisy or Lucie goes NUTS! However, they do like to team up with one another when it comes to barking! In fact, yesterday (keep in mind that I am SICK) the mail lady comes into the yard. I had just gotten home and David had left to pick up the girls from school. I was standing by the door with the door open. Daisey CHARGED at the mail lady with Lucie following right behind. So, the mail lady is RUNNING down the street, the dogs are charging behind her and I am running behind the entire crowd screaming for the dogs! I felt so horrible for the mail lady...but, it was a little funny later. Of course, I knew that they would NEVER bite...but, she didn't know that. Bless her heart. I'm sure she resigned before finishing her route.
Here's a funny! I'm taking a pilates class that is actually intended for women who have had children! It is an 8 weeks class (one night a week). The instructor and I discussed my back pain issues and we both thought I would really benefit from this class. So, I'm two weeks in...I'm really hoping (more than having flat abs!) that this will eliminate or at least reduce some of the back pain I have had since college!
Also new with me...I am joining Junior League here in Baton Rouge. I'm actually really excited about it. I think it will be something fun to do, get me involved in new things...and will hopefully also help me come out of my shell a little. I can very much be an introvert. :-) So...I think this is going to be a good thing for me.
I also did FINALLY pick out furniture...did I mention that already?? Sorry...I've been home sick today and have worked on this update in between naps. So...I forget what I have mentioned. Anyway...I'm going to take some pictures and post for you. I'll also post later about our St. Patrick's Day Party. Not many pictures...but, I'll post a few later.

This is a big one though! It's something so rare...that not many people can say they have ever seen this in South Louisiana! :-) SNOW! And, LOTS of it! David woke us all up at 5:30 this morning and told us we better get up and see the snow before it stopped. Well...it didn't stop...it just kept coming and then it got heavier and heavier...and it actually stuck to the ground! It was a pretty exciting morning for all of us...and got even better once school was cancelled! Even Lucie loved it...she just couldn't get enough of it! I took LOTS of pictures and couldn't figure out the best way to show them.
I came across a way of creating my own Web site to show off pictures. So...try this out. It is not supposed to make you sign in...so, let me know if you have trouble. There are also pictures of my Christmas decorations.

We had a week of beautiful sunsets...
We stayed in a beautiful house...
I think I may get David to take some pictures of my Christmas decorations to post tomorrow...or one day soon! :-)
What else?? OH yes...we are house shopping! Well, we're not sure if we are actually moving...but, just looking. Trying to decide if we want to move or just remodel the house we are in. Up until today, I had decided to just remodel this house...but, the realtor sent us a house today that I LOVE! It's in our price range...but NOT in the area David wants. He does not even consider this area Baton Rouge! :-) Oh well...we will just keep looking...or I'll just beg a little harder!!
Ok...I must share my latest addiction too. My friend, Amanda, introduced me to Twilight. Yes, I was hooked. I've read all 4 books and seen the movie...3 times. Yes, Amanda and I are addicted!! (Sorry to call you out Amanda...but, I never go down alone!) So, anyway...I have asked Santa for the 4 hardbacks so I can start reading them again. :-) If you haven't read them...I recommend that you do!
I'm going back to sleep now! Hope you all are enjoying the COLD day. I hope to post my Christmas decor soon!!

I wish I could post ALL of my pictures...but, obviously, I can't. I'll post a few and then see if I can at least post a link to snapfish where all of my pictures are uploaded. Then, you can go and look if you would like. We did take TONS of pictures!! (Ok...couldn't do the snapfish thing. Sorry...I'll try to figure something else out.)
Thanks for all the comments, too, on the LSU letters in the yard. I have a bit of sad news. The tradition of the letters is that they begin growing in early August. The letters continue to grow until LSU loses. Now, exceptions have been made if LSU has a good game but just can't pull out the win. HOWEVER...after Saturday nights game against Florida...well, I don't even have the words. THE LETTERS ARE GONE!!! David was out Sunday morning mowing them down! I would have taken a picture but...it's just too sad to see a grown man cry! :-) So...we need to move on...and just hope our players actually SHOW UP for this Saturday's game!! GEAUX TIGERS!!

So...I'll try to update again this week. If not...sorry, but, it will be after we get back from Tahoe. IF anyone is reading anyway! :-)
Have a great week!! GEAUX TIGERS!! Here is a picture of David's front yard. He let's the letters grow until LSU loses. He really thought he was going to have to mow them down last night. Thank GOODNESS, he didn't have too!!

Thank you, JESUS!! I have power in my apartment...AND CABLE!!! WHOO HOO!! I have been missing me some junk TV. Just in time for Big Brother tonight!! :-)
Ok...just stopped by to say that...on my way out to be fitted for my wedding dress...which is less than 3 weeks away!! LOVE my dress. My mom and I finally found it yesterday...it finally seems like a real wedding now!
Ok...more later. Keep praying...it is HOT down here and there are still many without power. My sweet fiance being one of the them...and MY side of the street at work.
