New Office

We finally have a home office! We couldn't be happier with it!

We changed the room we were using as the guest room and made it the office instead. We love how the blue walls look with the desk (of course the colors don't look normal in this picture).

We wanted a simple reading chair, but after going to a few furniture stores, we ran across this. Each piece is separate so it can look any way we want it to. The middle section is an Ottoman/coffee table with storage. We are looking for a tall lamp to set on it.

It has taken us over 5 years to find a desk that we like. I promise we aren't picky. We just hate looking at cords. We also finally have an office chair. For many years we've been using a very uncomfortable stool to sit on while we (of course I mean I) blog.

My personal favorite thing about this office is my awesome bookend for my photography books. It's an old school camera!

Boating Fun

We have some AWESOME friends who invited us out on their boat for date night.

We were all able to get up and wake board. Here's a video of James wake boarding. Please ignore the fuzziness when I tried to zoom in on James' bulging muscles, my camera is horrible!
We went wake boarding once before when we lived in Bakersfield, so we were both so excited to try it again.

After wake boarding we had Spouse Tube Wars.

We tried to push each other off,

but nothing worked.

After a few rounds, all of the girls went out on the tubes. We took turns standing up.

And then we had the neat idea to have all 3 of us stand up at once. That didn't work so well. This picture was taken seconds before 2 of us flew off into the lake.

It has been a very long time since I've had that much fun. I laughed harder than I have in years. I told James that it was pure joy for me.

Thanks Birds for the wonderful time!!!
