Let it be known, on this 30th day of August, 2011, I, Janaye Rose Atkinson made a loaf of bread! 
Okay, correction. . . my hand-me-down 'West Bend Automatic Bread and Dough Maker' technically made the loaf of bread, but I put the ingredients in alright? I know, I know, I'm not really all that domesticated if I let a machine do the work for me, but it gave me such a great feeling to have poured, weighed, and measured 
things that resulted in something so wonderful. 
Look at my face all excited. . . I tell you I couldn't keep from smiling all afternoon. I even did a dance [Jonny witnesses these from time to time when things work out as I've hoped]. 
I'm looking forward to experimenting more with the west bend, 
and the Atkinson's shall have toast with this loaf in the morn'

the moves we made.

Take a look at how we danced the night away on May 20th. It was pretty great! And I suggest pressing play on the song below to make this experience even better. 

Identical facial expressions are happening and they don't even know it!

Ya, pretty much every single one of these pictures make me smile from ear to ear. We had a blast dancing the night away with all our friends. Even the storm that came rolling in couldn't keep us from the fun we were having!

an out-of-control photobooth experience

 At our wedding, there was a makeshift photobooth that almost didn't happen. But the following pictures are reasons why I am so, so happy it did. Go on, have a laugh!

the empty frame.

I'm going to have to interrupt the pattern of uploading bazillions of wedding photos to share a little story.
I'll explain the writing in the middle, just read further . . . and fyi the dresser is getting a makeover soon!
  About a month ago I acquired a fabulous, large, antique frame (feat. above) from a consignment furniture store, the same place we purchased our dining room table. Jonny was a bit reluctant to get it but I think he just liked the way my face lit up when I saw it, and trusted I would make great use of it. 
  Anyways, in the past month we've moved, started school and a job and pretty much lived in chaos (organized chaos though). And well, I just haven't had the light bulb go off in my head as to what to do with this frame yet. So, its been hanging on different walls for a while now just waiting for me to get creative!
  I came home last night to find out that Jonny also is ready for me to get creative. Now, he gave me plenty of warning, a fully understood that he did not have appreciation for the empty frame like I did. But this, this was an eye opener.

He always has used cartoons to speak to my heart:)
This one's gotta be my favorite. Seriously? He made Reviews!
Ah, life as Mrs. Atkinson, always full of surprises.

Now here's what creative juices are flowing in this head of mine,

a headboard like THIS ONE

I am open to suggestions people. I clearly need to take action soon.
