Things are going good in the Nicholas household. We recently purchased new furniture for the living room! We've been looking at getting new furniture for the last few months and it took a while to find exactly what we wanted!! It's nice to allow more than 3 people to sit down at the same time! Haha!
In addition to the new couch, we got a new puppy!! A co-worker of mine gave me a dachshund puppy. He was 12 weeks old when we got him and we named him Presley! He's very adorable and lovable! He loves to cuddle and sleep all of the time. When he is awake, he is constantly playing with his new big brother and sister. It took Rowdy and Molly some adjusting to get used to him, but now they are all pals. They have a bed that all share and it is so cute to see them all sleeping together. It really warms the heart!
On top of all of this, I decided to start my own business. I am an Independent Beauty Consultant for Mary Kay Cosmetics. I love it so far! It really helps that I've always loved wearing make-up!! I even have my own website! The website is www.marykay.com/knicholas2 Check it out!! I'm very excited to see how this endeavor turns out!! It should be interesting!
Jesse is busy working away as always. He and our neighbor have started a workout routine that includes running and lifting weights. It's fun to watch the transformation in him. He's had so much extra energy and has been very positive about everything!! I'm very excited and happy for him!!

I would have taken more pictures, but the battery was on the verge of dying. So I would take one picture and then turn it off. And then I would forget I even had the camera. :/

Here is the before picture!
Molly was calm as can be. Just relaxing as we did all the work! lol
They were so funny trying to watch Jesse! At one point, Rowdy fell off the window sill. I don't know how he didn't end up with paint all over him!
We had to put the pups into the crate because they were getting too close to the paint.. Isn't she adorable?
Here is the final project! We love it! I just realized we didn't put the green ivy back up at the top!!! Oops!!!
Here's a slide show of their horses!

This is the bride and groom's first dance. They were a really cute couple and looked so happy! Her dress was stunning, as well!
Here's a picture of my sister-in-law, Judith and I.
Here is one of the few serious pictures we have. lol
True love... picking each other's noses! ;)
This is us just being silly. Nothing new here!
This is the plantation that Alisa's wedding was. Her reception and ceremony were outside, but it was still a beautiful touch and added class to the wedding. It was like a dream home inside!!
Everyone knows that you can't go to Seaworld and not go and see Shamu. We went to the first show of the day! Now, I don't know if maybe I was just really emotional or what, but I found the show very touching. It was just absolutely amazing to see these large animals swimming with humans. You could really see and feel the love that the whales and trainers had for each other. The beginning of the show was the most powerful. They tell a story of a young boy with very powerful music, and then all of a sudden 2 whales come out of the water. They start to jump out of the water in all different places. Absolutely stunning. I teared up a few times throughout the show. Corny, I know. Here are a few pictures below.
After Shamu, we went to see the dolphins and beluga whales show. That was a fun show. It was more about the acrobats than the actual animals. I didn't care for that very much. I was shocked at how high the dolphins could jump. The beluga whale that is pictured below had a baby who followed her everywhere. It was really cute. The baby wouldn't do the tricks, but she was always right behind mama's tale.
The rest of the day was pretty fun. It started to get really hot and we were all very tired, so we went back to my parents house for dinner and then headed home. It was a nice getaway weekend!

Wow, it is crazy how fast time flies by! Jesse and I have just finished a round of classes and have already started the next round. We did not get a break in between. :( It's been awhile since the last post and I don't remember when it was that we had our weekend adventure with our dogs. We wanted to spend time with them on a Saturday, but we wanted to get out of the house. We decided to go to a dog park over in Round Rock. The pups had a blast and we had fun too. They were running around smelling all sorts of things. They wouldn't even slow down for a sip of water. The best part was when we got home. It was so cute. I was preparing dinner and I looked over on the couch and Jesse, Molly, and Rowdy were out! They were just absolutely pooped!Here's Rowdy just prancing around. He is always camera ready!
Molly has grown so much and has become so beautiful. She has a beautiful coat and it looks great in the wind!
Here's Dad and the kids! ;) so cute!
We also had our address painted at the end of our driveway. We were both very excited about this. This is what it looks like now!
