Ryeland Wade Davis: 1st Room Reveal


It felt like just weeks ago that we found out that we were going to be having a baby in the Davis household, Better yet a Son. Our minds raced with questions, plans, and of course excitement. We could not wait until we told everyone that we would soon be welcoming a baby boy. We thought that would be the biggest reveal we would make. We were wrong.

Upon letting everyone know of our future welcoming the little one we were faced with the same questions by many.

1) Have you picked out a name?

2) You sure he's not a twin? (We got asked a few times..Still wondering why on this one)

and the one questions that I didn't expect, although Kaylee said she knew it would come.

3) What are you doing to the room?

As they would answer their own question with..."Because we can't wait to see what Keith will do to it"

It's great to have that feedback especially knowing they know me too well. Sorry to say, I have had plans thought out for some time whether we were having a Boy or Girl. Side note: While working on Ryeland's Room I have already come up with our next son's room (My brain never stops). Give us a few years though.

The theme is Sock Monkey.  With that said we wanted to create a room that he could grow into. Not something I would have to change in a short few months. It's a timeless look I like to say or give me time to let my creativity to rest.

Why Sock Monkey? I say why not. Kaylee has always loved sock monkey's ever since she met the Sock monkey that my mom made for me when I was younger (that I still have). I like to call him soc. He is chill and ready for any adventure that Young (Or Older) Keith would get into.

With all that said enjoy our process of the creation of this room. We had a great time creating, painting, building, and laughing through this process. Some plans we had didn't work while other things that we thought would be awesome turned to a pile of trash. You live and learn then start again. Blood, sweat, and tears (I had something in my eye) were rightly given to this cause. All in all with everything done I can proudly say it was done out of love. Ryeland may not appreciate it now, but he will know that it was all done from the bottom of his Mom and Dads heart.

Here are a few shots of the room:

He even got his own Real Sock Monkey made by Kaylee herself. We will have to wait to see what his name will be.

Stay tuned for future posts of the step by step or detail posts of the different projects throughout the room.

Kosova: day 1 & 2

Does a day of travel even count as day one of a trip? I guess with that and the 6 hr time change we did lose a day! The travel went well and Brittany and I really enjoyed our airport patdowns instead of the X-ray machines! We made all our flights and nothing was delayed.

In Chicago, we met our miracle for the day when we made it to  gate m1 and found our gate was at m21 which was seriously the longest walk of your life. We had 5 min or less to arrive for boarding, when out of no where, a guy on a cart stops and says: do you need a ride? We told him we hadn't eaten and he even brought us back to a mini food mart ($45 dollars of "snacks for lunch" including just a coke for each person , a bag of chips and a sandwich). We made it to the gate just before they called our section! Thank you cart man who saved us! And of course we had to document the adventure:

 We arrived in beautiful Kosova at noon and went straight to our beautiful guesthouse! They have redone the whole place and we're really excited for us to stAy since we wee the first to stay since the renovations! Britt and I are sharing a room, with a balcony and a great view!

 We hit up a lunch and then toured the city a bit with Carson and Brittany. We even saw a few old friends along the way! Which is always great. 
By 7pm we were dead, since most of us had only gotten 1 hr of sleep since 6am Monday am. So we headed back to the guest house and showered and ordered pizza for delivery. 2.5 € pizza with free delivery! That is what I am talking about! 

Bit the hay around 9:30 and woke up around 6!

Today we are jumping into camp stuff And hopefully I will get to meet with some old friends today!

Camp Prep...

As Keith finishes up his week at youth camp, I have been holding down the fort in Loganville getting ready for Leadership camp, which begins in just about two weeks!

It involves lots of computer work, lots of editing and lots of printing, chopping, folding, cutting!
I want to give a huge shoutout to my sister Mallory who printed all 88 shirts for us already! This will give Keith a much needed break from having to do them everynight this week!
We leave in just over a week - 9 days!

There is so much to do, but God always helps everything get in order, so I am not worried!

And of course, the cats always have to help!

Wedding Season


December / early January seemed to be Wedding Season!

Laura, my life time friend, got engaged back in August and planned a great wedding for the end of December. I had the honor to be the Matron of Honor and it was great getting to help her plan and be along side her for the ride.

Here are some pictures of the day of the wedding:

Finally on January 3rd we had my cousin Tiffany’s wedding, Keith and I were helping with set up and tear down, so we decided to stay close to the venue and got an awesome deal for a Embassey Suites hotel. We absolutely loved it! We even made a quick Ikea trip in the middle of our day.
