We own a Home!!!!

(of course minus all the paper, that's gone now)

So today after 6 months of waiting and about a million different papers with our signatures on it, we are officially home owners! Yay! Our house is beautiful and we are so excited to live there. We got the keys around 4 pm along with a nice house warming gift from Centex. They gave us a nicely wrapped up box of goodies for our house ranging from a role of toilet paper to simple green cleaner to help us get started. They also gave us a gift bag with pretty orange and yellow tissue paper coming out the top. Not sure the protocol on what to do, we decided to wait to open the gift later inside our new home. So when we got there we opened the pretty gift bag to find... NOTHING! (Is that really what she said?) Yes that's what I said! A beautifully wrapped present of nothing but air. Haha, I mean I know the economy's bad right now, but has it really come down to giving people empty gift bags to show your appreciation? Haha we thought it was funny. We're still not sure why we got that, if they forgot to put something inside, or if that's what they meant to give us, but it was funny all the same. :) Anyways, so we move in tomorrow officially and we can't wait to get started living there. Randy already has a million projects brewing in his head that he can't wait to get started on. I have to keep reminding him that it's all in good time. Here a little, there a little. But we're so excited and hope you can all come see our new home one day soon :)

So we're kinda boring right now

Hey Guys

So we're kinda boring right now. Not too much is happening in our lives. Both Randy and I are both going to school and working full time to save up for our house, which officially has a closing date! September 19, 2008 at 12:00 pm! Yay! So at just under 3 weeks, we are surviving living on top of ourselves in moms old sewing room. Yep the tiny yellow room downstairs :) It's been really fun though being at home again. We're really grateful to mom and dad for helping us save some money before we move in.

Anyways, so I thought I'd just put some fun pics on here to update our 2008 thus far. Randy and I had our one year anniversary this year and to celebrate we went to a Resort for the weekend in Scottsdale. We had so much fun!

We also have spent some time up at Randy's parents cottage. It's really pretty up there and we went for a drive and found this really pretty meadow and what would be the coolest hideout as a kid! We also went to the Young parade which was a cute little thing the town put together along with a rodeo.

Other updates are (as if you didn't already know ;) ) we bought a house! We decided we really like hiking, and went a couple of times before Randy hurt his knee while playing basketball. He partially tore his ACL, and had lots of bone bruising and hurt tissue. BUT! He's getting better everyday and we hope he will be all the way better soon so we can keep up with our new goal to exercise three times a week and eat healthier! :)

We also celebrated Randy's 24th birthday, fed some duckies and played at the park, caught some crawdads with Steph and James, Jess and David, went to Mexico for a week, and had our first Valentine's day as a married couple where Randy set up a really sweet dinner for me in our friend's tree house (candle light dinner from Mongolian Grill ;) , roses, and all!)

Needless to say we have had an awesome first year together and are having so much fun being married and in love :)
