Flannel's First Gig!!!!!

It was last minute, the place was tiny and there wasn't much of a crowd, but Flannel rocked out! These videos were taken on my camera, so the quality isn't really up to par. Also, the only lights they had were lighting the dartboards and not the band! :)

Happy New Year 2011!

We celebrated New Year's 2011 at Dixie Tavern with Josh and Casey. Also, I decided to go back to dark red. What do you think? Also, Shaun has a mohawk. But, I'll probably end up shaving it off today. He thought it would be fun for New Year's Eve. :)
Josh and Casey. So cute!
And I had to get a shot of the ridiculous guitarist from Shyanne, the band that was playing. Look at those pants!!!! LOL! According to Shaun, this guy is a very successful defense attorney when he's not standing on a bar in black velvet and silver leather pants playing a pink guitar.

Christmas Decorations!

View from office to the shoe "closet." Thought you'd like to see the awesome curtain I bought. Also, you can't really see it in the picture, but the light pull I bought looks like a giant diamond. :)View into the bigger bathroom. We went with a dark brown palette. It offsets the ridiculous pinkish purple-ish tile. (Or so we thought.)
View from the corner of the kitchen by the stove. As you can see, washer and dryer are on display, but I really don't mind it. It could be worse...they could be ugly machines!
View from the other corner of the kitchen by the frig. Counter top is a little messy...
View from the kitchen towards the hallway. Annie is decked out in her holiday scarf! And notice my ridiculous tree collection!
View from kitchen towards tree/living room. We hung our stockings from the bookshelf, and it turned out really cute. Also, our tree is short this year, but it looks so great behind the couch like this!!!
View into the dining room/nook.
From nook into kitchen. Yes, those are wedding pics on the wall...finally!
The nook! It would seem nice and cozy if this room didn't bleed heat. It's always freezing. You have to have the space heater with you if you want to sit in these nice comfy chairs.
I'll take pics of the office/bedroom if they are ever clean so you can see how we decorated! :)

Thanksgiving '10!

It was just me and Shaun this year for Thanksgiving, so I debated about doing the crazy feast thing...but in the end, I decided to go all out!
I bought a precooked turkey from Publix, so all I had to do was warm it up. Everything else was made by me, though!!! :) I got recipes from my mom, Shaun's mom and sister so that we'd have all of our favorites...
My mom's bread stuffing
Shaun's mom's corn pudding/casserole
Tara's (via Garrett's aunt) sweet potato casserole
My mom's bread pudding for dessert

I also made some green beans with blue cheese and toasted pecans. And bought both kinds of cranberry sauce (jellied and whole berry).
I screwed up the garlic mashed potatoes by adding too much cream, so we didn't have them for dinner but I managed to drain most of the extra cream out, so we have them for leftovers!
And boy! do we have leftovers!!! :) About to heat some of those up right now!!!

Of course, today is traditionally Christmas decorating day. Don't worry, Christmas music is playing, and everything but the tree and the outside decorations are already done! :)

Shaun rocking out!

This guitarist named Lefty hosts an open jam every Monday night at Bella's Pizzeria in Vinings. Once a month, there is a theme. Last Monday, it was Tom Petty and Shaun played 2 sets and definitely rocked out! Yay Shaun!
