New Progress

Our rustic header finished by Rush from old redwood pieces purchased at Re-Use Hawaii

Newly painted wall

Hallway is complete!

The kitchen! Obviously not complete but a lot of progress was made in the last two days

The range installed! If you look at the pantry, you can see I'm finally putting stuff away!
For those of you that are keeping up with our renovations, we are finally making progress! Our bedroom has been completed except for closet doors, the guest room is waiting on a little trim work, our living room needs a few painted walls and furniture, and the kitchen is waiting on a few more doors! The list seems to be getting smaller and smaller. For all of our friends and family that want to see the new progress, I've attached some photos. The house is a disaster so as things get cleaner, I'll post more pictures!

This 4 day weekend has really given us time to get things done.  We have even had time for a surf or run which makes us much happier! Check out the photos above/below of our new progress!

Turkey Day 2010

The day started off amazing and kept getting better! I somehow talked Rush into doing our own little turkey trot! Of course I didn't tell him we would be running for about 5 miles so after mile 3 I think he was ready to be done, but he stuck it out! After returning from our run, we were able to get our new range installed and hooked up only to find we were out of propane. Oh well, at least it looks nice in the kitchen!

This is our third Thanksgiving on island and our first together being married. Rush was flying last year so it was really nice to have him home this year. We always go to our friends house (Burt and Laura) and enjoyed the day surfing and eating. It was a beautiful day and we were so lucky to be with good friends. Here are a few pictures from the day!

Happy Thanksgiving!

City Museum

During our visit to St. Louis, we decided to check out a museum that everyone we talked to loved. The City Museum was by far the most incredible place we have been to in a long time! You could touch, crawl, climb or anything else you could imagine doing at this place. After climbing into the first hole, I lost Rush. About 10 minutes later he came out smiling like a little kid! I speak for both of us when I say we can't wait to go back! 

Self explanatory!

We knew right away this place would be fun!

And then he disappeared...

Crawling around

Will he make it?

He does! Think small!

Happy Halloween!

The pumpkin we carved!

This past week was a blast!  I arrived on Friday in St Louis and Rush and I left for Oklahoma. We had a quick, but really nice weekend with his family.

It was just like old times for me this week. We were back living with Kenny, Hannah and Evan! The week went by too quickly, like they always do, but we had a great time. On Saturday we celebrated Kenny's birthday by having a nice dinner in St Louis. We started the night early and made it count! The bottom picture is from the Irish Pub we went to after dinner. I think it was probably after the Irish Car Bombs :) 

Our other celebration for the weekend was our Anniversary. A year ago today, we were getting our costumes ready! I can't believe a year went by so quickly. I'm so happy we actually were able to spend part of the day together! Happy Anniversary Baby!
