2010 at a glance..

Well we started the year off engaged and awaiting word on the annulment; then, after months and months of waiting, in January we decided we were going to tie the knot in April. So the year started off with planning and getting things together for the wedding! First was the bridal portraits in March. Meegan Weaver did such a wonderful job! I would recommend her to anyone!

With help from friends and family the invitations, decorations, and food came together nicely.

We decided to do the First Look before the ceremony because we thought it would give us a chance not to be so rushed after the wedding with pictures, and we were right! Not only did we get all the pictures out of the way, we got to see one another all dressed up. My nerves were going crazy before I saw Ryan (to the point I thought I was going to burst out in tears for know good reason) and once we saw each other I felt like time stopped just for us. It was amazing, truly amazing...

The reception was soooo much fun! We had blast! Great music, great food, great drinks, and GREAT FRIENDS!

Once the festivities were over, off to Portland we went!

Once we were back it was all work no play. We started working on the house a little more steady. I'm not sure what month it was but during the summer Ryan decided he was going back to college! He started at the first of September and was so excited! We also moved into the Charlie house at the beginning September. October started off with an annual trip to Fredericksburg for Oktoberfest.

The fall consisted of work and Ryan going to school. He finished off his first semester with a 3.0!! Next, came our first Christmas as a married couple! Pictures to come soon :)

And that's it! 2010 was great and I can't wait to see what 2011 has in store for us :)

Almost Happy New Year

Well if I did have a lot of people who read this blog I bet they would be upset that I haven't had a post since the beginning of the month. My apologizes! I have no real excuses. I get on here every day and look at everyone else's blogs and read all the fun things they have to say.

I've been thinking about changing up the blog a bit, now that the house is done and we are settled in I don't have much to post about (or topics concerning the house). It really wouldn't need much changing since the name of this blog is Ryan and about Ryan AND Kathryn post. I haven't talked to Ryan about this but I will spring that on him tonight. :) I will be sure to let you know what he says...

If he does agree, be ware. A few of his interest are....a bit different than mine, ranging from music to scary comic books.

And maybe some day or in the near future we will have something else to post about?

For now, I am going to get off of here and get back to work...I hope all of you had a VERY Merry Christmas! Our's was amazing!

Love always~ KH

It's December!! Wow! This year has flown by. I am so excited, happy, and giddy for the Holidays this year! I had my tree up and house decorated before December even got here! Ryan and I are so cozy in our house. The tree fits perfect and looks great! (Charlee, Sydney, and Audrey did the decorating) While we were decorating Ryan played his guitar and we sang Christmas Carols. I'm on a mission to find a book with notes and lyrics so he can play and we can all sing on Christmas Eve down at my parents...If anyone has seen something of the sort please let me know!

I can't remember the last time I was this excited for Christmas! I think being married, having a wonderful husband, and the perfect house has made this year absolutely amazing! I am so thankful for our family and friends!!

Don't you love how bright the decor is in these rooms!

I know it's a bit early but we will be hitting the road for Houston tomorrow and I probably won't have the chance to get to a computer!

We hope all of you have a Happy Thanksgiving! Don't eat too much!

Love always,

Ryan and Kathryn :)

I know...

I do apologize for not posting much lately. Things have been crazy! No new news on the house, still needs the final paint job. (It has primer now, which suits me just fine!)

Ryan is doing great in school! At first, I was worried if he'd like school; I am so happy and thankful that he really enjoys it. He is going to make the best English Teacher! And if I don't say so myself, he's going to make a pretty handsome teacher too ;) xoxo

I am just now getting geared for the Holidays! I bought a Christmas tree today, wreaths already on the door and I bought us new stockings to hand on the mantel. I'll have to take pictures and share with you once the living room is all done up! I am thinking I am going to get everything out this weekend..but who knows?

Well I'm off! I'll be posting stuff. :)

Here is a quick update for you. We started painting the outside of the house! Yep that's right, the entire outside is primered! All is left is a round of paint and we should be good to go. Yippee!

I have a feeling today is going to be a wonderful day! It's chilly out, I'm hosting a Scentsy party tonight, and Ryan has a show tomorrow at The Office! Good weekend with great friends! I can't wait!

Hope all of you have plans for this nice fall weekend!

A few more fall images from our trip to Taos, NM.

And we're back..

This past Thursday-Monday we have were in Taos, NM and it was absolutely stunning. The trees were all yellow and orange and it was a sight to see.

For some reason, trips like this make us motivated to finish any projects that we are putting on hold. In this case, PAINTING THE OUTSIDE OF THE HOUSE! It is in the near future that we will be getting started on this small yet very large project.

Hope all of you have a fabulous hump day! ;-)

Right now..

I'm thinking about the Rangers game tonight (nervous and excited) and this AWESOME post I came across on A CUP OF JO. Please check out at your convenience.

Here are a few pictures from Saturday's game at the Ballpark in Arlington. (we had a BLAST!!)

Pregame, sitting and waiting for the game to start.

Game over and thumbs up to the Texas !!

It was a full stadium!!

Doin' the happy dance...

Me and Ryan are so happy to be going to the playoff Ranger's game this Saturday!! I can't believe I am going to be a part of something that has never happened before. Rangers vs. Yankees at the Ballpark!!! wooohoooooo
I woke up once last night and I believe I saw Ryan smiling in his sleep!!

Bring on the cheering, hot dogs, popcorn, cheering, cheering, and more cheering.

I'm off!

And today is a wonderful day because I'm off work!! The house is clean, smells good, I'm almost finished with the book I've been working on for about 6 months now...(started it before the wedding) which leads me to another point; ME AND RYAN WERE MARRIED FOR 6 MONTHS YESTERDAY! I can't believe it. Love that man to death and can't wait to be celebrating many of anniversaries with him!

And since I'm home, chillin' in Ryan's recliner, I took the liberty to take some pictures of the master bedroom. (Yes, it's as done as it's going to get.)

And one last one, the finished hallway.

Kind of blurry, sorry! And I'm off to get find some pumpkins. Have a great day!

Clips from the weekend..

Happy Wednesday everyone!! Here are a few clips from our weekend in Fredericksburg.

We all had a great time; there was lots of space to spread out and relax, visit, eat, drink, and watch the kids.

Oktoberfest has a great facepainter!

Can't wait for next year!

I don't have much to say except that I am in an exceptional mood. The weather is good. Work is good. Love is good. Life is good.

I hope all of you are having feeling the same.
I'm really liking these prints from The Love Shop

And it's Wednesday...meaning I only have 9 days till we leave for Fredericksburg! Yippee! It's the one time out of the year that Ryan and I dance the night away. All the siblings and kiddos are coming this year so it should be quite a good time :)

If you've never been to Oktoberfest in Fredericksburg, Texas, YOU HAVE TO GO AT SOME POINT IN YOUR LIFE. Oktoberfest is a few days filled with nice weather, good eats, beer, and lots of POLKA! (Not to mention it's family friendly) Fredericksburg is a small German town filled with awesome wineries, LOTS of B&B's, German Bakery's, and lots of cute shops.

Was this not the longest week ever????

I am so so happy that today is Friday and that Ryan and I have nothing pressing in our agenda for the weekend! All I plan to do is tackle the three issues of Texas Monthly that are sitting on my coffee table waiting to be read.
