Here is another video we have of the wedding where Julie's dad, Kent, gave us his infinite words of wisdom.

We were recently walking through the Pottery Barn and we came up with the idea of buying/creating a new centerpiece for the kitchen table. Julie made a very nice one a few months back, but it had been relocated to the mans bathroom and we desperately needed a new one. We decided to try something out of the ordinary and as you can see from the picture above that is what we got. We really enjoy it though.
The one thing Lance has wanted for quite some time is a bookshelf for his man room, so that he can display all of his books. At first Lance wanted to display his sports memorabilia, but that was quickly shot down by Julie who said that a bookshelf is only supposed to display books hence the name BOOKshelf. Since Lance had no argument for that logic, Julie won. Julie was so excited about being right that believe it or not she even put the bookshelf together. Is there nothing she can't do.

You may have noticed some new things on the right side of the blog. One of the new things is a link to all 257 of our wedding pictures. Just click one of the 2 links over there and it will take you to the pictures. The other link are movies that we have been watching. We have recently been watching about one movie a week from our Netflix subscription and decided to share what we have been watching with everyone else. Hopefully this will make the site a little easier to get around.
Julie's mom and dad (and now Lance's in-laws) decided that they wanted to throw us a second reception at their farm. Since the space we had for the wedding was limited many of Julie's friends came to wish us both happiness and good luck. Julie's mom and dad went all out with a string quartet, great food, beautiful decorations, and Lance's favorite cake (carrot cake). We had a fantastic time and are so lucky to have parents like Kent and Nancy who care so much about us. You can see some of the pictures below, but unfortunately we did not get a chance to take any pictures during the reception because we were just so darn busy.

Enjoy the pictures.

As most people know we were in a car accident last December and our car was called a total loss. That was Lance's first accident ever and we both figured it would be his last for awhile, but boy were we ever wrong. This morning while Lance was coming home from running some errands and stopped at a red light, a big GMC Yukon came barrelng into the car behind Lance which pushed that car into Lance. The Yukon pushed the trunk of the other car basically into the back seat. Lance's car was driveable, but he got an estimate on it and it will take a few thousand to fix due to the rear end being damged almost completely. I guess that means another rental car for us. You can see the damage below, but it is real tought to see anything wrong (but if you look close enough you can see the liscence plate of the car scuffed into the fender).

As many of you know Lance is a die hard Kansas City Royals fan and Julie loves her St. Louis Cardinals. This weekend though there was a breakdown and Julie bought a Kansas City Royals shirt. Julie's favorite player for the Royals is Zack Greinke (he has a bad attitude and Julie likes that about him) and as we were walking through Wal-Mart we spotted a powder blue Zack Greinke t-shirt. Julie fell in love with it and Lance was more than delighted to buy it for her. You can see the pictures below.

Lance likes to give Julie a hard time because she always seems to be excited about garbage day. Julie really enjoys throwing the trash away, but her biggest complaint has been that the trash can isn't big enough and that it doesn't have wheels so she can help roll it to the curb. Well today we went to Wal-Mart and got the Cadillac of garbage cans. It holds 50 gallons and has wheels. We even gave it a test drive in the store by having Julie roll it down an aisle. Lets just say that Julie is much more excited about trash day.
When Julie's mom came to visit a few weeks ago, she decided to leave us a little gift and broke the towel rack in Julie's bathroom. Julie decided instead of fixing it, she wanted new hardware. With a generous gift card from bed, bath, and beyond Julie found what she wanted. You can see pictures of the new hardware below.
