I was sitting on the couch this weekend and Penny started barking and ran to the windows in the living room.  I thought maybe she saw a squirrel, but she really saw deer!! It is so cool to live in the city but see deer walking through the backyard!  There were three of them just strolling through the yard.

Then they walked to the front yard!  Penny really wanted to go chase them, but we kept her inside. :)

I found the cutest Etsy shop while browsing for some art for our house.

I was looking for something that was a little distressed and since Drew and I both grew up around horses, we found the perfect piece of art!  My mom was nice enough to buy it for us and it fits perfectly above the pantry in the kitchen.  I love it!

Master bathroom doors

When we moved into this house, there was something really strange going on with the master bathroom.  I love the french doors, but they had glass panes and were see through!!  I mean, when I'm in the bathroom I usually want some privacy, right?!

The previous owners just had a sheet hanging on the inside for privacy which was pretty ugly.  We talked about a few options and settled on frosting the glass.  This way it would keep the look of the doors. 

We started slowly and everything was going on smoothly so we went for it!

 One door done and you can't see through it any more!

  It looks so great and I love it! Yay for privacy!

Christmas in California

We headed out to California for 10 days to visit family and friends over the holiday. The weather was so amazing!

Drew went golfing with my uncle Dave a couple days and had a great time.  They were beautiful courses!

After golfing we went to the Sharks hockey game with Dave and my cousin Terra-Lynn.  It was such a good game and it ended in a shoot out with the Sharks winning!

We spent Christmas Eve with my mom and step dad's family and exchanged gifts that evening. 

We woke up Christmas morning and drove to my uncle Dave's house to celebrate with my mom's side of the family.  Then we went to my dad's house and spent some time with my step family.  We went down to Monterey for lunch the day after Christmas and hung out by the ocean.  It was nice to see the beach!!

The night before we flew back to California we went to my friend Nikki's house for a party. It was so nice seeing my Theta friends from college!!!!

Christmas in Indianapolis

Before we left for California we celebrated Christmas with Drew's parents and his brother and sister-in law.  We went to Barb and Steve's house for a yummy dinner and great wine!  It was such a fun night!

Brad and Suzanne bought Drew a package of fake mustache's and they had a great time modeling them! 

Abbey loved tearing apart the wrapping paper!
