Sharp Shooter

We decided to practice shooting the guns this afternoon! When I was in college, Daddy got me two pistols to keep at my trailer and in my car (I had a pistol permit at the time). We practiced shooting them and then I put them in the drawer and didn't take them out until today! (Well, except that one time at the beach, Jill & Drew will remember....;) ).

I was scared to death and started acting crazy, but Troy made me calm down and we loaded the little pistols and shot a target! I actually did pretty good! I hit the target everytime and got in the black near the bullseye the last few times. It was fun shooting!

This does NOT mean, however, that I will be shooting animals, i.e., deer, dove, turkeys, or whatever else. I still can't stand the thought of that!
And this is when I said, "Freeze Sucka!"

Troy actually hit the bullseye, but those others are mine!

Getting our house together!

I'm so happy to have a wonderful husband! We are actually doing things together that "real" married couples do, and are loving it! We're having the best time getting our house together. We've been saving for new furniture and some of it arrived! We got a new leather couch and loveseat and our chair has been ordered. I took a personal day Friday and Troy and I went rug/table shopping in Montgomery. We found a beautiful rug at the Rug Depot (?) on Wetumpka Highway. I love it! The owner asked if we were newlyweds and gave us each a book, The Power of a Praying Wife and The Power of a Praying Husband. He told us to read ours and then swap. So far I've read the first chapter and I'm really into it! I thought that was so sweet of him to give them to us.

We haven't had any luck finding coffee/end/sofa tables yet and went to almost every furniture store in Montgomery. But Troy saw some in the Rooms-To-Go catalog so I'm going to check it out today.

When our new chair and ottoman arrive, I'll post pictures! We ordered it in a fabric with lots of red/gold/brown. I think this is it...

Here are some pictures of our new furniture! (please don't think I'm bragging! Just excited about my new home)

Troy loves grilling on the new deck (that he slaved over)! It's so relaxing to sit outside in the evenings and have a glass of wine or coffee in the early morning!
