Weekend Recap!

So this past weekend was a pretty busy weekend at the Tipton house. Brandon had the day off Friday so he began rocking a grill area he built last year. It took him a total of 2 days to rock the entire area and build a door, but it turned out great. The door is still not finished. We have to stain the door and get a handle to put on it. I think he did a wonderful job! Here is a picture of the project.

Brandon and I found this cute sign at Michael's yesterday. It was 40% off! Can't beat that!

My mom found this chair at the Habitat store. When she bought it, it was painted white and had a super old cushion on it. I painted it black, Brandon used some sand paper to ruff it up, and I covered the cushion. I think this chair turned out great and I love it for my front porch. We have a small front porch, so it was the perfect size.

My mom bought us some orange mums to help celebrate fall.

I have had these pictures for a long time. I just never bought frames for the larger ones. Well I decided this weekend was time to hang them up. These pictures are by Brian Andreas. I absolutely love his pictures and all of the neat sayings they have on them.

We found this wreath in a Martha Stewart magazine. We changed it up a little by putting spiders and an orange bow on it. We are still going to add some snakes to it to make it a little more Halloween like!

A Most Memorable Trip with the Tiptons

So a few weeks, maybe months, ago Brandon and I went Kayaking with his mom, dad, sister, cousin Julie, cousin Lauren, and her husband Scott. Well, this girl has never been kayaking before, EVER! So I had no idea what to expect. I was so nervous about the experience. Once we got there and got started we had a great time. My father-in-law and sister-in-law were out of their kayak more than they were in it, which made for good laughs! I just thought I would share a few pictures from this most memorable day.

On our way to kayak, all we heard from Ashley was how she was going to buy herself a kayak. After falling out of her kayak numerous times and having to receive help getting out of the water to be shuttled back, she hasn't mentioned much about purchasing her own kayak!


This is after he fell in the water and we had to wait on him for over an hour to figure out how to get himself back in the kayak!

The whole gang!
