Updates to Our House

Between my driving trips back and forth to Chadron, somehow I've managed to fix up our house a little bit. Brock helped by building us an entertainment center and headboard for our new KING size bed (yay bigger bed). Hope you enjoy!

Mom got us some pillows to match the them!

Our beautiful entertainment center! Brock made this out of an old waterbed that was left in our basement. I had a part in making it by painting it black...yay me.

The view from our couch.

The living room. It's making progress.

Our new bed, down comforter (thanks to all of the generous people who gave us Macy's gift cards for our wedding!) and newly hung wedding pictures.

The other side of the room. The mirror was under out wedding cake (notice the ring that only shows up when I take a picture...weird).

My craft/office favorite room in the house!

Hallway between the office and spare bedroom showing off Brock's favorite wedding picture.

BREAKING NEWS! (Sorry, It's the journalist coming out in me)

It's official, we are getting a bloodhound puppy October 18! Brock and I are so excited and can hardly wait to see him. After that day I'm sure this blog will consist of pictures mostly of him, but you readers won't be dissapointed. Here's a sneak peak of the little guy...

We were originally going to get this exact puppy, but the breeders informed us of a litter that would be ready on the 18th versus the 3rd (a little to soon for us). Our puppy will be very similar (tan and black).

My Birthday!

I am 21 now...weird. Brock and I celebrated by going on a picnic behind our house. The wind was blowing that day and some of the only trees on the ranch are behind our house. We took shelter in there!

We also went bowling the night before in Martin, SD. Steve managed to beat us both games, but that's usually how it is :-)

Susie Cheney's birthday is only 2 days after mine, so we had cake and ice cream together last week. Lots of fun! What a great time of year! drink beer legally!

We had chicken sandwiches, pickles and chips.

Hiding in the trees. It felt so much like Idaho!

It just kills Brock to actually take a serious picture now and then ;-)

Brock thought he was funny and put a twist on all of our names: Chelsea=Chelsie, Stephanie=Steve, Carl=Carol, and Tiffany=Tiffay. Silly guy!

The birthday girl's turn.

And now her husband's.

Bowling buddies.

Mine and Susie's birthday dessert's.

She sings "Happy Birthday" every time she sees this picture :-)

I got her a pinata...she didn't really know what to think of it.

It's been a long time

...since I've posted. SORRY! Life of a commuting, married, college student!

These pictures might be slightly out of order, but i'm still trying to figure out this whole "blog" thing. For some reason they don't upload in the order I put them in???? just pretend they're reversed!

Some recent events in our lives...

Brock in his cave exploring gear.

The "splunking" crew. Brock and a couple of his friends went to Rushmore Cave to EXPLORE!

We took a day trip to Hot Springs, SD and attended Evan's Plunge. Very fun!

A pretty rainbow after a short rainstorm.

Brock and I at the Gordon Rodeo.
