merry christmas!!

Cannot believe Christmas is in less than a week!!
Wishing you and your family a blessed, and very merry, Christmas!
"But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.”" - Luke 1:30 - 33

Love, the Hunters, Drew & Benton

happy 1st birthday benton!

if you know anything about me, you know that I am NOT an animal person. When I was little, I remember refusing to get off the sofa because I was convince our dog had rabbies. Then, I thought new dogs would be better so, I begged my parents for a dog. That christmas, I got 2 dogs... and after about a year, I barely would go near them. Call me a brat, but I just do not like anything about animals, the drool, the hair, the smell, nothing... however, matt is the total opposite. He has been wanting a dog as long as I can remember, and he finally wore me down. We got Benton in April... and I must admit, I have fallen for him. I can hardly believe I am admitting this, but I do, I like the pup. Alot. He does get on my nerves sometimes and gross me out at times, but at the end of the day I can't resist his cute face. He has a ton of personality and fits in great with our little family. So, for his 1st birthday we went all out... bow tie, ice cream doggie sundae, the movie Bolt, and a new toy. Don't worry, we won't become the crazy dog people, but until we have a real baby, he will have to do... and I get my baby fix this way ;)

my favorite pic of the week

mr. and mrs. stair

my sweet, high school best friend got married this past weekend! such a sweet time to catch up with old friends and celebrate mr. and mrs stair :) 14 out of the 15 people in the wedding party were from our high school... crazy! the only thing to make the weekend better would have been to have my man with me, but he was home being responsible and working. it was a very sweet weekend, and also the conclusion of all my college roomies getting married! wohoo! 256, we did it!!
stephanie, the beautiful bride, the night before the BIG day!

shopper's paradise

This weekend my beautiful mom and her cousin, Suzanne, came to visit. Suzanne is an interior decorator so we all went to the Dallas Market to S.H.O.P.!!! It was an incredible place with over 13 floors of stuff for the home!! It really was a shopper's paradise ... and yet a little overwhelming. Really crazy people actually will spend LOTS of $$$$ on things for their home, things we could never afford! but, it was fun to look. We had a great time browsing and Suzanne found some great things for her clients in STL. I found some really neat, and really unique pieces... some I would love to DIY one day. That is, if I could :) but I will try ANYTHING!
ALL the floors
the first day... AH-mazed :)
luxurious bed, don't you think you would sleep better in this?? ;)
cute for a kid's bedroom
love the contrast of this blue and the white
cute, and not too hard to DIY
attempting to make these for our dining room :) - I will let you know how they turn out!
SO creative!
i am loving all the owls and little birds out this season!
again, this doesn't look to hard to DIY
a fun future project for a kids room someday?
sweetest baby cradle for a princess!
not kidding, $5800... nicole kidman's buyer just got this for nicole's house
a little weird
great idea!... an old handkerchief turned into a cute vintage vest!
bird cages with topiaries are also really in
LOVED these
cute little quote by Winston Churchill
