When we first moved to Elko we stayed in the Super 8, for 9 months. Bad deal.
It was due to the fact that we were remodeling our first purchased home. It has taken a very long time, lots of hard work, a little money (sarcasm) and is still not complete but happy to say we moved in here almost a year ago exactly.
Let me give you a tour.

Before Living Room
Explanation: Gross carpet, popcorn ceilings, dated texture, crappy molding

No more popcorn ceiling, fresh texture, and tons to paint  

New Carpet (sure smells nice) new molding, fresh coat of paint, new lighting and a little decor..

Next I bring you to our kitchen.

Heart Shaped cutout cabinets (Seriously), sketchy floor and sketchy everything really

Everything in the dumpster. New sub floors, Sheetrock and texture

New Cabinets, Hardwood floor, granite counter tops and fresh paint :)

Dining Room just for the heck of it.

Come into the Master Bathroom

What do you know its disgusting.

Maybe a bit more disgusting

And you can finally open your eyes, big changes in the bathroom from tile to plumbing to windows etc...

Master bedroom is next

First reaction and thought (besides the obvious smell,carpet,and molding) the closet is freaking SMALL

Idea...take down old closet, make walk in by taking space from laundry room. Perfect plan.


New, new, new.


We also finished off our laundry room and two extra bedrooms but that might just start to bore you.
New decks, sheds and yard work are on our to do list next...busy busy summer.

Are you here yet

I dont have a favorite season, I have a favorite feeling. It's the windows down, silent back roads with dirty bare feet feeling. It's when I can walk straight outside without pausing to fish out a jacket. It is curtains dancing around my room because of the cool breeze that pushes against its fabric. It is sunsets after dessert and grass on my pillow. The sound of lawnmowers, of falling leaves, and rain against the window. Pockets of shade and walks along a gravel road. I dont have a favorite season, I have a favorite Feeling.

This winter has got to me.
Many times I have thought about how to write this post.
Do I say I have been depressed?
That I just have not felt like me?
I usually love life, I love life to the very core, I love my husband, my family, my friends.
So why am I so sad?

I usually dont mind winter, when people would complain I never really understood,
this winter I understand.

I have so much to be thankful for, during the day and will have moments when my heart is so full of gratitude with everything I have been given. My health, a roof over my head, good examples in my life, people who care and people who listen. Why cant I just feel like me?

I cant wait for the summer, for the memories, sunshine and "those" feelings

Summer are you here?!

Still in love

Oh hey its me..let me introduce myself. My name is Megan and I have been very bad at updating my blog.
Instead of updating you on whats happend the last couple months and heck if im being honest the last couple years Im just going to make this short and sweet.

I love my husband, he loves me. These last five years I can honestly say have been the best years of my life. He has taught me so much about hard work, dreams, goals, love and to not take things so serious. I often question how I got so lucky, but lets not forget hes lucky to ;) My wonderful sister took these pictures for our 5 year anniversary, thank you so much.
