Making the house - OUR HOME

I've had "Hang up wedding pictures" on my to-do list.. since we got married. Almost 5 months ago. So guess what I finally did? Hung the darn things up! 
I got the "Family is forever" from Hobby-Lobby for a Bunco party.. and chose my own gift! But I was having the hardest time figuring out where to put it! Also, got the subway art from Hobby Lobby and was having the same struggles. As well as with the pictures and where to put them.

I am in love with the placing and spacing and everything about these! They're up in our "play/craft room" right above our box full of sports equipment.

I'm not so in love with this.. but we've had the left side done for a while, but the right wall has been blank. And this picture of us is big enough to be by itself and take up enough room.. I might keep adding to it though.

I finally figured out what to do for the open space above my sink! This is what I wanted to have for our wedding as our backdrop, but using ribbon instead of fabric but it was going to be too much work and too expensive. But I found all of the fabric and paper cranes in my house! (Cody and I started making the cranes when we were engaged, then forgot about them) It may look ghetto to you, but I LOVE IT! And it ties in the colorful things all randomly placed in our kitchen!
Strips of fabric, colorful paper cranes. Cute and easy (:

I'm really liking not having a job again so I can explore my creativity with the little that we have at our house. 

And a random update on the Air Force work out that I talked about last week. I've been doing it!! Technically 3 times last week, and then we went to Lagoon on Saturday and I consider it another day of the work out. We were there for about 8 hours, walking everywhere, getting an ab workout from screaming and laughing my brains out on every ride, and eating our healthy, cheap, packed lunch while everyone else spent $10 for a meal that should have normally costed maybe $3.

Anyways, moral of the story.. I LOVE this workout routine! So simple to do and I feel the effects right away! And you don't need a gym membership to do it! Seriously, start it now!! You won't regret it!
