Breaking it in

Saturday night we had our first party in the new house. While parts of it are not complete, and much work is still to be done, it is beginning to look and feel more and more like home. I imagine it will take us another year to finish every detail on the inside, then we will have to tackle the landscaping....Yikes!

We had some of our family members over to watch the Auburn Tennessee game, and we had a great time! Shelli, my cousin and personal decorator, worked on this AU tree all day. I think it is soooo adorable! I love the helmet tree topper, and the white "toilet paper".

Jack was more than ready to eat some yummy food! Isn't he adorable?
What a cute group of AU fans! Dylon has been switching back and forth from AU to UA fan. Poor guy is confused. By the end of the night he was screaming War Eagle!!

The boys fell in love with all of the "gurls" that came over to play with them.
They also showed us how much they LOVE boiled peanuts.
Jack is such a happy baby! He is always so pleasant.
View from the kitchen to the living room.
We had such a fun night entertaining in our own house. We can't wait to do it again soon! We will most definitely have to plan something for the Iron Bowl. Dave and I are excited about going to both the Kentucky and Ole Miss games this month. We love our family and our tigers.
WAR EAGLE and good night!

  1. WAR EAGLE!!! Everything looks to be coming together nicely!!!

  2. We didn't know it was a spend-the-night party. We left too early.
    The house is beautiful and the Auburn decorations were great. WAR EAGLE!!!

  3. Mandi,
    Your house is looking great!

    Where did you find the "faith" and "family" that you have on your built-ins? I am looking for some...

  4. Congrats on your new house! I know you are so excited. New things are always a work in progress, but I must say your house looks pretty complete, and completely amazing! Sounds like things are great for you guys. I would say "War Eagle", but I have been informed by my immediate family that since I don't care about football (and I don't) that I don't get to have an opinion or be a fan. I just LOVE Auburn, though!
