Time Flies!

I can't believe that in 24 days we will be married!! It seemed like just yesterday (it will really be five years ago in August) that we were on our family reunion camping trip at Scofield, where we had our first kiss and where we decided to become more than "just friends"! Time flies! We are both so ready for this huge step in our life together and are so excited for what the future has in store for us both as individuals and as a family. We have both been really busy with wedding plans and remodeling our new "home." We just went and bought the paint for our bedroom and closet today and will hopefully get carpet in soon too! The plan is to have our bedroom, closet and bathroom completed by our wedding. Then we will work on getting the kitchen done and then finally our living room. It will definitely be a task to get everything done, but in the end it will be SO worth it! We are remodeling Kenan's mom's basement and plan to live there for awhile, until God has another plan for us. Both of our families have helped so much in the remodel and we couldnt have done any of it without all of their help! THANK YOU!! Here are a some pictures of the remodel so far!

Knocking down walls to make our bedroom bigger.
It went from a 12'6"x9' room to a 12'6"x21' room!

Shane was such a big help!

Inside the new closet

Yay the whole room is almost sheetrocked!

I think i'm going to be a professional insulation installer.

Almost done with the ceiling!

Kenan and Jimmie have an advantage of being tall :)
