About Me

My photo
Justin and I met at Arlington High School in 9th grade. We had a few classes together but never really took too much interest in each other until sophomore year in Mr. Collins class. That’s when it all began. Justin sat behind me and bothered me to no end. He would kick and shake my chair and make cow noises at me then call me moochelle. I guess that was his way of flirting. Don’t ask me how it worked but it did. Justin and I dated all through high school and continued after we graduated. We got married after 8 LONG years on July 26th 2008.

We have Chair Rail..... AND crown molding!!!!!

James made a surprize showing at the witte house saturday "just to stop by" we looked at the baby room and talked about what we were going to do next (Chair Rail) and when we were going to do it.... (prob in a year) HAHA. James and Justin took some measures and hung out for a while. we decided that next weekend would prob be the best time to do the chair rail since we already had plans for saturday. Justin ended up calling his dad to tell him that his phone was not working right to see what was going on. Well I told justin to remind him that next weekend we were doing chair rail.. James had no plan on waiting till next weekend. he said NEXT saturday?! I am going to home depot and then I will be at your house at 9 am! I was super excited that the chair rail was going to be done!! Well sunday rolls around and james is at my door at 9:11 am. of course justin is still in bed, He gets up and helps his dad unload and get everything ready. They start cutting and nailing the chair rail to the wall.. It made such a difference!!
After looking at the room I said to justin.. I think crown molding would look good in here.. lets go get some! Justins responce was.. My dad already got it! I was shocked! I could not wait to see what the room would look like with crown molding. It took a while to figure out to cut the molding ( it being both their first time to put up crown) but once they figured it out and james went back to shop to get a new saw it looked perfect! We were very pleased with the way the room turned out! Thanks pawpaw for all your help! Here is a pic of the crown molding still needs to be painted it is just primed but you can still get the picture!

Here is a picture after it has been painted and everything looks great! Now the next project is new lighting and closet shelfs!

Starting on the room!

Well once we got the crib all put together the next thing was the bedding! Justin and I went to babies r us and looked for a bedding that we liked and that we could do the room in pink and brown. We found a few that were cute and one that was really cute! Debbie (Nanny) picked me up one night and we went to Babies R Us to buy the bedding. well once we got there we opened the bedding that justin and I liked and it wasnt really that cute. :( WE found another one that was perfect. Still had pink and brown and had some "pops" as nanny and I called it. ONce we got the bedding we could go to lowes and pick out the colors to match the bedding! MAN let me tell you that Justin and I sure do have different ideas.. We left with just a pink. Once we got home shawndra asked if we got everything we needed? I told her the story and we went back to Lowes to get the brown while we left Justin home to tape the room off.. :) When we got back we started to paint... first we did the pink
We decided after it took us around a hour and a half to do the pink that we needed to break and het some dinner... notice it is DARK outside.. When we returned from dinner we started on the brown and were finished in no time..

Now we just need the Chair Rail....

We have a crib!!!

YEAH! we have a crib!! We went to two different Babies R Us to get a crib. The one we originally wanted was in hurst and in stock!! so we went to hurst to get it and saw another one we liked more. however that one had to be ordered so we drove back to the arlington store to order here so we would only have to drive to arlington instead of hurst when the crib came in. well.... we got to looking around and found the one we bought ... and IN STOCK! We brought the crib home and I had justin put it together! We opened the box and saw how many pieces the crib had... justin just wanted to die. He did a great job and did not even put it together upside down or backwards! Here are a few pictures of him putting the crib together and the finished project!! Thanks Pops and Gran for the Crib Baby Witte will love it!Justin trying to decide if he wants to do this...thats a LOT of pieces...
all the pieces are out....working, working, working... looking good!

ALMOST finished!!
YEAH! Thanks daddy for all your work!

Gender Reveal Party 2/12/2011

We had a blast at the party! I ws so thankful that everyone could make it. Shawndra and I did LOTS of "arts and crafts" as justin called it. to get ready for the party. Although we are not the most creative.. with a little help from the web we made it! We had pink and blue everything and "its a boy" "its a girl" logo around the house. We played a few games to make the time pass and candy won a gift card to chilis and austin, my dad, and amber won the lotto ( so they had to share the pot)Everyone was trying so hard to trick us into telling them the sex before the reveal but we made it to the big surprize! We (shawndra) injected all the cupcakes with green frosting except two with the real color. everyone was in such a hurry to find out what the baby was that we did not want someone cheating. We gave the two cupcakes to kaitlyn and austin to reveal that baby witte is a GIRL! Everyone was so happy that we finally got a baby girl! Here a few pictures I was kinda busy so I really only got a few. hope u enjoy!!
