Never thought I would say this

But... GO COWBOYS!!! So I was never a cowboys fan, I do love me some football but growing up being a 49ers fan I despised the Cowboys. Well I married a HUGE Cowboys fan so that being said meet your newest Cowboys fan! Yes I will still go for my 49ers and the Bengals but also the Cowboys!!

Hope everyone had a great week I am working on more DIY things so look forward to that! Other than that were going to have a football watching day here!!!

Did it myself!!

So getting inspired by all these amazing DIY blogs I
wanted to do some of my own. So I went to the Animal Humane Thrift store to find some goodies!! I did great look at these awesome finds!!




Got these for $5 a pop! Couldn't beat that and we were looking for stools for our kitchen bar!












Got this rack for $2.50















And this adorable salt and pepper set that I won't don't anything will I love them they way they are!












And here are the afters!



























After these projects I want to do more and more!!! Things here at the Smith residents are going very well! Jacob started school which he is super excited about and we started coaching youth soccer! We have 2 teams a 5-7 and a 8-10 they are awesome kids and its been fun so far!! Champ is doing great! I'm so glad we have him! He definitely fits in!! Here's another pic of him!! Hes pooped after our run lol.

NEW NEW NEW!

So far in the life of The Smiths were constantly getting new thing. Being newlyweds and just moving to a new state and a new house there are many things we have got and still need to purchase. With our big family only being one state away it is not impossible for them to come visit so getting our guest bedroom up and open is what we are attacking now. I have decided to start volunteering at the Airman's Attic (which is a thrift store on base and everything is free to military family's stationed here) Doing this I hope to acquire some things to use around the house. I have been getting extremely inspired by all the DIY blogs out there and am currently doing my first refinishing project on 2 stools and a hanging rack. I would say for my first refinish I'm doing great!! Pictures will be up when there both done!!!

Another new big addition we got is Champ. He is our new wonderful dog!! He is a year and a half black lab and he has been with us a little over a week. It was amazing how comfortable he was right away. We adopted him from the animal human and as soon as he got in the car he just layed down and enjoyed the ride! He slept with me the first night, he is house trained and even does well at our local dog park!! I love him so much already!! He is a great addition to our family!!!

Other than that life is going well, Jacob and I started swimming again and we are going to be doing some fun things in and around Albuquerque these coming up weekends!! We are very blessed and are very thankful for everything we have.

Eat,Pray,Love

So last night I drug Jacob out to see Eat,Pray,Love and omg did I love it. Jacob wasn't the biggest fan but he I'm glad he went. I want to live in Bali permanently now. I loved all the landscape in the movie from Italy to India to Indonesia I was in love and I also think Julia Roberts did amazing!!!!

On another note I am finally done with my training and will be moving to part time which I am very excited about because I like having the time to do stuff at home and be able to work as well. So far I'm loving my job, I miss doing hair but soon enough I will be doing it.

Well I hope everyone is doing fantastic! I will be blogging more and more now that I will soon have the time to actually use the computer not just my phone! Now I'm off to eat!!!

Busy Busy Busy!! (but I love it)

So this week has been soo busy! Jacobs Dad and step mom came into town which was so nice. They only came for the weekend but to see a familiar face. We went to the aquarium and ate at some of our favorite places here so far! Then I also got a job, not doing hair yet because I still do not have my license here in NM. So I'm a teller at Wells Fargo. So far I really like it, I worked this whole week and I like the people I work with a lot! But now its the weekend again! SO EXCITED! Jacob and I will probably just relax and it will be amazing!

Can't wait for Aug 13th!!


Can I just say how excited I am to see this movie! This is my favorite book of all time, I love it. It took me 2 summers to read it because I would only take it to the pool while I was tanning lol but I feel like this book you have to be in an enviroment you love while reading it. My personal copy is now ruined due to tanning oil, water and the sun but when I think about the book it takes me back to laying at the pool in both Tempe and Tucson enjoying the rays and reading this great book!

 How can a movie go bad with Julia Roberts in it, esp this movie. I can see her playing this role to the T.  I have seen the trailers and browsed pictures and I cannot wait to see it. From the food in Italy, to the colors and culture of India to the work and love finding in Indonesia this movie is going to be hopefully a new favorite!!

First Post

Blogging, blogging,blogging is all I have been hearing from the news to friends to my family. Well since I just moved from Tucson,AZ to Albuquerque,NM away from all my friends and family I thought I would start blogging!

So Albuquerque you ask, well my husband is in the Air Force and this is where they sent us! We have been here almost a month and so far I love it! It seems to be a lot like Tucson which is home so it's nice. We live on base which was the best idea ever(my idea lol)!! We have a huge 3 bedroom 2 1/2 bath 2 story house! Just for the two of us. The houses are new and our neighbors are all nice! The base is a little old but it builds character right? We are just starting to familiarize ourselves with the areas around base. All I cared about was knowing where Target and Starbucks was. Who can't live without those!!

Now onto married life, It's AMAZING! Finally being with Jacob is great, he is my best friend and being able to see his handsome face every day is fabulous! We are living together really well, we are a good team lol!There are so many things that we want to do here in Albq. from hiking the beautiful Sandi Mts. to rock climbing and my favorite HOT AIR BALLOON RIDE! We are both very active and outdoor type of people so being here is perfect for us! Something that makes Albq. unique to me is the amount of parks they have, they seem to be everywhere, off and on base. We take full advantage of these parks, we bought ourselves a soccer ball and go kick it around quite a bit!Another reason why I love Thee Wed Life is the cooking! Ever since I was little I loved the Food Network. My dream was to have my own show. Well now since I'm no longer living alone I get to cook full fledged meals! And my obsession with the Food Network is still just as intense. Jacob does not mind any of this either he is getting fed great home cooked meals every day!


Thee Wed Life will be all about the fun and interesting things we do in our lives. From delicious recipe's to fun outings to random stories about the married life! Hope everyone enjoys it!!!!
