Ryan (and a little of my help) has been working hard on doing some other upgrades on our house, focusing on the kitchen. We got new granite and Ryan did a backsplash and fixed plumbing. I am proud of him and it turned out great! Excuse the pictures they are with my phone. With the light fixture we changed, I love our new kitchen!

AU f.u.n.

The past few weekends have been A.U. f.u.n! First off, thanks Mr. Cam...congrats!
2nd, we spent the SEC weekend in ATL for the game and had a blast with college friends. Here is Ryan with our tailgate group (aka. his frathernity brothers and wives)
Ryan wore the SAME shirt to every game this year, but thankfully we got an AU picture without that shirt since he had a jacket on...can we say superstition?
The tailgate wives, friends, girlfriends, future wives, aka all of the above...

Look who we ran into? This is my mom's best friend and one of my best friends from middle school...Mrs. Gaddy was using our koozie from our wedding!

The sweet Koffler's were great hosts to us! Now its our turn for them to come to Huntsville!

The weekend before for the AU/UA game my sweet brother and his dog Gabby came to visit. My Huntsville friend Emily Jane came over too! I wish we had our game on video as we watched. We were doing good luck dances, switching seats because they were bad luck, etc.
We had a blast!

Taking advantage of the pretty AU sun...I really do think God is an AU fan becuase of his sunsets...
There is Ryan in that DANG shirt AGAIN! He says we are framing it if we with the National Champ game. Oh, and yes, we are going! Arizona here we come!

Brother/Sister photo opp...I guess Gabby is my niece??
Sweet Emily Jane...She tried to wear neutral colors, she is an MSU alumni.

The day before Thanksgiving break, we had an iron bowl tailgate party in my class. Of course, the majority of the class is AU..I have some parents telling me that their child wants to convert to AU...ok, maybe I am brainwashing them...They are young I can convert them NOW! :)

War Eagle! I am SO proud to call Auburn my school!

...marks our one year anniversary! Best year of my life and looking forward to many more! Ryan planned us a great 1st anniversary trip to one of our favorite towns, Nashville. We shopped and ate in downtown Franklin, enjoyed our stay in the only 5 star hotel in TN and breakfast in bed, enjoyed some quality football time together, a romantic dinner, Sunday brunch, and to top it off a Titans game! This time of year, I can't help but be so thankful for such a great husband God chose for me and thankful for our special times together! Me with our wedding cake and wedding crystal! Our favorite part of the trip! :)

So football has practically filled our lives this fall. minus a few weddings and trips here and there, but we have loved cheering on our Auburn Tigers (and of course, since I am an old Johnson, the Florida Gators) This season we went to these Auburn games: Clemson, LSU, Georgia, Ole Miss. I had the pleasure of going to the biggest cocktail party of the south (UF vs. UGA) and look who I ran into? Auburn friends!!! I spent one night with my childhood best friend Cortnee and then the other night with my aunt and uncle! It was such a fun weekend and I am so blessed to have such great friends and family! Ryan and I love football! SEC champs here we come! War Eagle!

20 days from now....

Will be our one year anniversary! I had the great opportunity to go back to Jacksonville to my aunt and uncle's house (our wedding spot) this past weekend! Here I am at the same spot almost 1 year later! I was filled with emotion to be at the spot where Ryan and I committed our lives to each other! Such a great experience!

War Eagle!

We had a GREAT weekend in AU and to end the weekend, what better news than to be #1! It's great to be an AUBURN TIGER! I am so proud to have graduated from such a great school with for once a number 1 football team! :) We started off our Auburn weekend with a trip to Mikata, our favorite restaurant to eat at with all our friends! We went to the game with our new Huntsville friends, Elizabeth and Joey Dambro! Yay for new friends! We had fun with them and already have plans again for this week!

The addiction is back...

I have started sewing again! Thanks to the lovely week long fall break Huntsville City Schools has given me, I am back at it! I love it so much and it is so theraputic! I love to listen to my praise and worship music while I sew and I just get in my own little world!

Let me know if you ever need a baby, wedding, Christmas gift! Never to early too start shopping!

I actually have been selling kitchen towels in a local store here in Huntsville. I am even about to possibly selling in a Trussville store, as well. I am so excited!

New York, NEW YORK!

Ryan and I have decided that we want to wait awhile to have kids and enjoy this time 'just us' and travel. Ryan surprised me on Valentine's and told me he had been planning a trip for us to NYC! We had a blast and can't wait for our next trip somewhere else!Magnolia Bakery (Sex and the City was filmed there)
Yankees Game!
Central Park!


Fun night and dinner at Abe and Arthur's. Gwen Stefani was there the week before!

We had a blast from Regis and Kelly tickets, shopping, yummy food, tired feet, fun drinks, an AUBURN restaurant/bar, and the Yankees/Red Sox game (Ryan played in college with the closing pitcher for the Red Sox which was really fun to see him). We even met some friends along the way. These are just a few pictures to wrap up the fun trip!

An amazing man...

All of our days are numbered, but if we share them with the people that matter and that we love, and endure our relationship with the Lord, what a blessing LIFE is!
Ryan and I had a great 'family' weekend in Birmingham this past weekend. From family baby showers, church, cookouts, breakfast outings, and quality time, we really enjoyed it. One of things that was a part of our weekend to treasure was seeing Ryan's grandfather, Daddy Ralph. What an amazing man! He is a United States Veteran, strong Christian man, loving husband, amazing craftsman, and has raised 3 wonderful children, 2 daughter-in-laws and has 4 grandsons and 2 grand-daughter-in-laws :)

I have loved this man ever since the first day I met him on HIS wedding day to the sweet Mrs. Margie. I was honored to be a part of their special day. They were a part of our special day back in November, as they danced the night away and showed off their moves. I LOVE THIS picture! Daddy Ralph is in his last few days of life as I type. I tear up just thinking of what a wonderful man he is. Sadly, I have already lost my 2 grandfathers, so Daddy Ralph has been my 3rd one to 'share' with Ryan. I will never forget him telling Ryan that he lost a good one when we broke up in the midst of our relationship...I knew I loved him, ha! Daddy Ralph means so much to us all and I know sweet Jesus can't wait to wrap his arms around him very soon! We love your Daddy Ralph and are so glad we got to spend time with you last weekend!
