 Its KITCHEN time! here are some pic's of how our kitchen has turned out....

 I am in LOVE with birds! These salt and pepper shakers from Tai Pan Trading are my FAVORITE! 
Tai Pan is the BEST store EVER!  btw, if you haven't been go!

Jake LOVES disco balls, so for his birthday i got him this mini one that has a home right above our stove.
It's always a party in the Wood house!
When we were registering for items (for our wedding) I was hoping that someone would get us this tiered server plate thing....sadly no one did. BUT! we got many gift cards so we were able to get it after all! whoohoo!  
 I hate peppers, but i love the way they look :)
That bean clock is awesome, it goes perfectly in the kitchen and matches ALL our colors!
 Aren't these scrubbies amazingly cute!?! My grandma made them for us...they are way too cute to use 
and so they become decoration.

What do you think of our little apartment so far?

Reason why to marry your best friend

For the last Five months I have had the blessing of being married to my best friend. I don't know how i got to be so lucky. I see that many of my friends from when I was young are married and divorced and others who can't find happiness with hanging out routines. The big secret is to marry your best friend. Mine happens to be Kylee!
Every day i get to wake up and make her breakfast while she takes her already beautiful face and makes it heart stopping. She even gave my german pancakes a chance and is now hooked. There's never enough for the both of us. Kylee is the smile on my face that even a rainy bike ride up old main hill can't erase. I love how much fun she is on just regular days. If it gets too boring in our apartment I know for sure that someone is going to start tickling.
Call me a newly-wed but it is the highlight of my day to watch her come in the door and give her hugs. Being a newly wed doesn't mean hiding in the bedroom room at every spare moment, it means running around the apartment like three-year-olds and then holding hands like grandparents as we do our grocery shopping. And every night i get to hold her close as she cries during a romantic movie. "Can life get any better? I submit that it can not!"
Here's to my best friend! The one who tells me when i'm wrong and helps me do what's right. The one who I know is pacing the floor til we can see each other again. The one who I would be lost without. I Love You Kylee!

Jacob, the love sick poet

{photo fun}

For our thank-you cards we decided to to do a postcard kinda look with a picture of us holding a thank-you sign on one side and the note on the the other. They look really cute!
The pictures are adorable but i have no use for a picture that says thank you on it so 
i decided to play around and change it up :) 
Here is what i did....

i quite like the results, what do you think?

be yourself...

"Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square hole. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."
