The Media Room

The media room is coming along. All the electronics are up and running, the couch is in. Just need to touch up some paint, hang some pictures and some accessories and we will be good to go. I decided to paint the wall with the screen black to make the speakers disappear. Here is the before picture:

And the after picture....

The Pool Table

We found a great deal on a 8' Legacy "Kacey II" pool table. It was on EBay, but it never hit the reserve. It turned out they are in McKinney, only about 5 minutes away. We made an offer, paid a pool table moving company to move it and put it back together, and now it is game time! The pictures are of the pool table in the prior owner's home. I hope to have some updated pictures of it in our home soon.

New Couch

I finally found a great couch for our downstairs living room. I knew I wanted a square sectional, leather (but not dark), a right arm chaise, and comfortable. This couch is by Lane, it retails for $3800, this website sells it for $2995 I got it at a model home warehouse sell for $1200. I had to make two trips for a total of 88 miles and move the couch off of the truck into the garage myself, but it was worth it!

First day of Couch to 5K

For those that do not know, couch to 5k is a program that is designed to get lazy people, like myself, off of the couch to running 3 miles in a matter of months. There are many different schedules and programs out there to choose from. Below is the first week calendar of the program Andy and I are doing:

The Aggressive Couch to 5K (3mile) Program - 4 Month (

Sabrina's First Day: It went well, but I thought I was going to die. After a while, I thought for sure that I had been walking for over 10 minutes. When I looked at the clock, only 4 minutes had passed. But, I did finish the entire 25 minutes and walked just over a mile!

Some Pics of the Furbabies

My poor poor babies. I chase them around the house for hours trying to figure out this new camera. On average, I get about one good picture out of about 100. Here are a few of the cute ones thus far:

New Camera

So, I recently bought a new camera, but have yet to figure out how to use it. I wanted it to take great pictures of our up coming vacation. Meanwhile, I am using the furbabies as guinea pigs for practice. I hope to take digital photography classes as soon as I am finished with school. Here is the detail of the camera:
