Bullets Are Great!

Hey everyone! I'm back...and I'm bringing you up to speed with bullets. Yea for bullets!

  • Josh and I STILL haven't unpacked all of our boxes. Maybe one of these days if we're ever not busy on a weekend we'll get around to that.
  • We are enjoying our little "love nest" (Thanks, Katie, we like that name). I forget that it is so small. We're also enjoying our 12 channels. That's right! 12. So far the only channel I really miss is HGTV. Other than that it hasn't bothered me at all.
  • I've been able to use some of my wedding gifts for the first time at our new place. It has been so much fun. Almost like Christmas.
  • I got a new phone. I made it to the current century and got an IPhone. Good grief! Had I known what I was missing I'd have had it a long time ago. I don't think Dave Ramsey would have approved but I used money I made from our yard sale to get it. Since we don't have the internet at "the nest" this has been a huge blessing. I have a few favorite aps that are the best things ever and have become fun companions for me throughout my day.
  • The Biggest Loser started last week and I'm so happy. Since it is one of the channels we get I didn't have to give it up. Thank you, Lord! It makes me love Tuesdays so much.
  • Something else I'm a big fan of...Light Pumpkin Spice Frappucinos (sp) from Starbucks. I can't have them often because they aren't cheap but oh how I enjoy them. Only 120 calories for a tall and 2 weight watcher points. Oh the bliss.
  • Guess what else? Josh and I celebrated our one year anniversary Saturday the 19th. Wow, has it really been a year? It's been such a fun time together. He's my favorite!
  • On our anniversary we watched my favorite team get beat by my second favorite team. It was an interesting game. First off all, I missed Kelly terribly. There are only a couple of home games I've seen without Kelly there and let me just say its more entertaining when she's around. Second of all I have never seen the Hogs throw the ball like they did that night. Go team. BUT the sad part of it all is that we scored lots of points and still lost. Come on defense...defend our scoreboard, ok?!?!?! Hopefully they can work a few things out or make some personnel changes. I'm just sayin...
  • I'm pretty excited because I get to see my high school besties this weekend. We're celebrating the arrival of Braysen. My friend Laura is having her first baby and I'm so excited to get to see her and the other fruits.
  • Let's see, have I missed anything? I don't think say. Hope you all are doing well. Will try to post pictures this weekend. :)

Moved In

Well, we are finally moved into our "cozy" apartment. I can't believe I didn't take any pictures of the move. Some blogger I am. Just trust me, our new little place is small! Since that can seem negative I'm going to refer to it as cozy from now on. We still have several boxes to unpack but we're almost there. It's a challenge moving a lot of things into a little space. We've had to be very creative and sacrifice a few things...like a washer and dryer. I know, you think we're crazy. We knew we wouldn't have enough room for everything without some extra storage so we turned the laundry "closet" into a storage room for dishes, dishes, and more dishes. Don't forget I was married almost a year ago and received some GREAT gifts. They are just so overwhelming. Josh thinks they are out of control. Since we're storing them in the laundry closet, coat closet, outside balcony closet, study desk, and TV hutch maybe he's right. The only place we don't have dishes and/or serving pieces is our bedroom and bathroom...for now! Don't feel too sorry for us though since we gave up a washer and dryer. My parents have offered us to use there's any time so we're good. We do like our cozy place and know this is going to be an adventure and take some getting used to. We opted to not purchase cable since the goal of this move is to save money. That means it takes us 30 seconds to flip through all 6 of our channels. But honestly, at this point, we're thankful to have those channels. I will just come over to my parents when I need and HGTV or Food Network fix. In fact, I'm getting one right now. Also, you might want to know we don't have internet either. Craziness! That means blogging will be a challenge but I'll do my best to keep you updated. It's going to take some getting used to but it will all be worth it.

I will post pictures of our place when I get things put away and organized. Stay tuned...

Lunch Date

Look who I had lunch with...

Kelly and Harper

Kelly let me know last week she was going to be in town for a speaking engagement (sounds so professional). I was so excited to get to meet her for lunch. It certainly was the highlight of the week. Of course, Harper looked so cute in her big bow and adorable dress. I love these girls a LOT and am so glad we got to spend some time together.

Speaking of time with friends this past weekend I got to spend some quality time with Katie, Jenny, and Laura. Let me just tell you it does my heart good to be around these girls. They're so fun! Please keep praying for Katie. Life is hard without Reese but God has been good to her. She couldn't do it without your prayers though so keep them coming.

On another note, Josh and I are moving out of my parents house this weekend. I have a lot of emotions about. I'm a little nervous, excited, apprehensive, etc but I know it will be great. We don't plan on being in our new crib for too terribly long so we're going to consider it an adventure.
