Welcome to the Fam

I probably am not the the best person to be offering a big welcome to the McCormick family, considering I've only been a part of it myself for only 5 months
(wait 5 months??? whaaaat? We've been marred THAT LONG?!?)
But welcome to the clan

Miss Ellie Scout McCormick

Born 10-6-10
to proud parents Jordan and Brooke McCormick
7 lbs. 19 inches

We are just so glad that you are finally here!!

Married Life... Thus Far

So... I'm a blog slacker. I've been dragging my feet because I knew that this first post would take me a while to figure out how to do everything... and I seriously have not had much time at all. But anyhow, enough of me whining.
Here's a little looksy at what Chasen and I have been up to for the past few months:

We got married in this pretty place on May 15th, 2010

{It's funny how giddy and crazy in love we look in some of these pics}
{Yep... cloud nine}

Then we had a big party/bbq/picnic/reception at my house that night

Ate some cake.

Danced a few dances

We left in a sweet car...

And then headed to another pretty place...

Saw some pretty cool ancient ruins

And... we ate a bunch of these...
(they were the cheapest lunch at our fancy schmancy hotel...)
(and let's be frank here, hot dogs really are Haley's favorite)

Sadly though, we had to leave paradise.
But it was so much easier leaving knowing we were moving into this cute little place.

{Disclaimer: The decorating took pretty much all summer. Wasn't like this when we moved in.
PS- Thanks Aunt Bobby for letting us paint the wall of your basement apartment red.
Don't worry... we'll figure out how to fix it before we move out. And by we I mean Chase.}

Had a lot of fun getting our "little humble abode" all cozy.
It really does feel like home now. We love it.

We painted this little beauty red and mod-podged (sp?) the drawers.
Bought glass knobs from lowe's and it was an entirely new dresser.
I felt so domestic.

Close up-

I spy with my little eye... the McCormicks' itty bitty kitchen!

And our tv and fireplace... okay so the fireplace isn't a real fireplace.
But this little heater does warm up our whole apartment
(The benefits of having a little humble abode)
And it's fun.

We also rode a bicycle built for two a few times this summer

Spent a lot of time playing with these cute kiddies-

{Introducing Lukas, Simone, and Stella Jackson
Aunt Bobby's grand-kids.
So my second cousins.
Or are they cousins once-removed?
My cousin's children?
Whatever. They're cute, whatever they are to me.}

They like to attack Chasen.

But I think he secretly likes it too.

This picture was just too funny not to post.
Lukas is a pretty hilarious little guy.

I became president of this society at the end of the summer

The Student Chapter, to be exact.
{Don't ask me how that happened... I still have no idea}
And Chase started school here

He is currently loving his major in Environmental Science.
Like REALLY loving it. He has officially turned into a school nerd...
And I couldn't be happier.

We've spent a lot of time hanging out with our "besties" the Morgans

We even went camping and cooked up one completely
nutritious meal-
Hot dogs split with cheese & jalapenos in the middle, then wrapped in bacon.


In other news... we got called as Sunday School teachers for the 13-year-olds.
And they love us. Just kidding I don't know if they love us.
But we love them. So we like to pretend that they love us back.

We've hung out a lot with Chase's brother Jordan and wife Brooke.
They are just funny to be around.
Their little baby girl should be here any day now!

Overall, I really have had the best few months of my life, all starting on 5.15.10-
the best day of my life.
{I know... that is terribly cheesy. I promise this won't be one of
THOSE types of blogs... you know what I'm talking about:
The newlywed "My life is so perfect.. I am just SO BLESSED" type of blog}
{I cross my heart.}

So feel free to stop by again.
You might even get a laugh out of our crazy new ride through married life.

Little Mrs. McCormick

First matter of business: I made a promise to myself that I would NOT start a blog until after our Wedding thank-yous were finished...

HAPPY DAY, they are done. So now I guess it is time to officially enter the blogosphere. Hi, I'm Haley and I'm excited to be here :)
