New Set Of Wheels!!!

We got a new 4 runner yesterday! I have dragged Christian out all week looking for one around Greensboro and we had no luck. So we got up yesterday morning at 6:30 and drove to Charlotte look at one we found online at a dealership. We were the first people there yesterday but by the time we got back from test driving it, there were 4 other people in line waiting to look at. One guy had drove all the way from Georgia. We got a really good deal and I love it so much! I am not one that will run out and just buy a car. I HATE car payments so I believe in driving a car till the wheels fall off, but I couldn't stand Christians truck and it had no room at all. So we traded his truck in and kept my Honda. We knew we were going to have to buy a larger vehicle when we have babies one day (hopefully not too long down the road), so why not now. We plan on keeping the two cars we have not for a long while. I am going to start driving the 4 runner and Christian will drive my Honda. Unless I decide I miss my little car. I love my car and just can't part with it right now. Maybe b/c it was my first car I bought and paid for myself!
Here is Christian and I right before we left the car dealership! We were so excited and couldn't wait to drive our new car! So far we have been pleased with the gas mileage. We had a good weekend. I actually took the day off on Friday and I spent the day with my parents. We went to pick up my wedding dress too! I wish I could post pictures to share, but Christian reads this blog so I can't. Last night we went to Outback with my family and today we went to the lake with some friends. I have a few pictures to share from dinner last night but I have downloaded them yet. I hope you all had a great weekend too!

Don't know what I am doing

This was my first time trying to participate in the "Show Us Where You Live" and obviously I don't know how to get the link to show up. I've tried several times today. If you have any suggestions or tips please let me know!

> This is our master bedroom looking in from the hall way. Sorry about the glare from the windows.
Here is another few from the hallway. I love my new hamper that I recently bought, it matches my comforter and walls perfect!

The other side of the room. Nothing to exciting just some pictures I found at Rooms To Go that I liked and we had a $100.00 credit to use.

My favorite part of the room is my "Always Kiss Me Goodnight" sign. I plan on putting in a nursery one day above the crib! Hope you enjoyed my room!

It's Hot, Hot, Hot

I just love Saturdays! Today has been good, HOT, but good. Christian got up early this morning to go on the boat with some friends and I had me time! I lounged around the house and then went to Wal-Mart and the grocery store to get somethings I needed. Christian's dad got in town this afternoon and we've just been hanging around the house. I actually think they are both napping in the living room and I am about to start dinner. I am making pork tenderloin, greenbean bundles, rice, and rolls. I also have brownies in the oven now for dessert! I was thinking about maybe eating on the back deck but it is just too hot for this girl. I love summer, but I also love my air conditioner. Well I hope you all have a happy Saturday and hopefully I'll have some pictures to post later!

Little Bit of Soccer and Hanging

Ahh...tomorrow is finally Friday! This week has seemed a little long to me. I am beyond ready for the weekend. Christian's dad is coming in town on Saturday, so I've been trying to get everything together around the house.
Tonight was a fun night. Christian is starting to play on an adult soccer team on Wednesday and it was suppose to start this Wednesday, but it got cancelled b/c of the rain. The make up game is tomorrow night. Well tonight Christian thought it would be a good idea to go and practice a little bit, since he hasn't really played since the beginning of college (2001/2002). We have soccer fields right near our neighborhood, so it was really convenient. I went with him so I could walk, while he played. We also took Buddy and he had so much fun. He wore himself out so quick running all around. I don't know who is more out of shape us or him.
Here is a picture of Christian and I from tonight. I actually enjoyed it and look forward to going some more and getting some walking in!
Here is Buddy and Christian running around chasing the ball. I swear Buddy is just like little kid.
Once we got home Christian was so sweet and finished hanging our pictures in the master bedroom. I might actually participate in Kelly's "Show Us Where You Live" tour next week. Hope you have a HAPPY FRIDAY!!!

Happy Tuesday!

Have I mentioned how much I love this dog!?!?! Christian is still at work and it is 10pm here, so it has just been me and Buddy tonight! I was planning on taking him walking, but it is raining so we have been playing around the house and now he is curled up in the bed with me. I took this picture tonight while we were playing. I held the toy above the camera and told him to sit, that is why he looks like he is being so good. After work I ran to TJ Maxx. I wanted to find a side table lamb for my guest room. Christian's dad is coming in town from Florida on Saturday and I am trying to get the room ready for him. Not that he really cares whether there is cute little lamp on the table, but I do. I couldn't find a lamp to save my life or the ones I found were over $100 and that is way out of this girls budget.
But...I did manage to find these cute sandals. They are dark chocolate brown with gold button like things on the toe but you can't really tell in the picture. I think they will be so cute this summer with a cute dress or capris.

I have been looking for a cute purse to carry this summer. I didn't want anything real big but not anything tiny either. Well I found this cute Tommy Hilfiger purse for $19.99 and I just couldn't pass it up. I've already switched purses and everything fits great. Ask me if I feel the same next week after carrying it. I always like purses at first but then they get unorganized and I get annoyed.
Also, while I was at TJ Maxx I found this laundry basket for our bedroom. I've been looking for over a year for the perfect basket and I've not had any luck. I never thought it would be such a task. Well when I saw this I just new this was the one. It matches my room perfect! Chocolate Brown and Burnt Orange! Notice my picture sitting on the floor that Christian needs to hang. I plan on posting pictures of our bedroom soon!

Jon and Kate Plus 8

This was one of my favorite shows for the past year or two and I am still watching it every week, but I just don't know what to think about it now. It seems like every new episode that Jon and Kate are purposely ignoring each other. It makes me wonder what is really going on in the Gosselin family. I think they should take this time and focus on keeping their family together and do whatever it takes. What is everyone elses opinion on the show? Today has been a good normal day. Christian is now working a split shift for a while from 11 -8. So after work I made dinner for myself and wrapped the rest up for Christian when he got home. I also took Buddy for a walk and I know my neighbors think I am crazy b/c I talk to Buddy the whole time we are walking. But I don't care he is a good listener!

Busy, Busy, Busy

I feel like I have had some really busy days lately and can't get anything accomplished. I just realized this morning that I haven't posted in over a week. Every since we have gotten our boat, on the weekends we are at the lake both days, all day long and I feel like I have zero time to get anything done. Just for future notice I will not be posting very many pictures of us on the boat b/c I can't stand how I look in a bathing suit. This weekend I have stayed at home and cleaned my house really good! I feel so much better now that I took all day yesterday and scrubbed the house! I feel like I can relax now!
Last week was also a very busy week too. I think we had something going on every evening. I also got my wedding dress last week!!! It is just PERFECT!! I can't wait to wear it! I am not going to post any pictures of it, b/c Christian usually reads my blog!

Here is a picture of Christian and I before dinner last night. Yesterday was my sister's birthday and the family went to dinner for it. I didn't think to take any pictures at dinner. It was planned to go to Bravo (my favorite) but they couldn't seat us til 8:30, so we ended up at Red Robin.

Friday night Christian and I went to dinner at PF Chang's with our friend Dana. It was so yummy! I love the Chicken Lettuce Wraps! This isn't the best picture of us, but I thought I would share it anyways!

I Heart Target!

I have found so many cute things at Target on the clearance rack lately, I just want to go to every Target around and search all the racks. I have gotten 3 new dresses, 2 jackets, and 2 bathing suits and I believe the most I paid for one item was around $12! Christian is going to start monitoring how many I go Target...Ha.

Last night Christian and I went to Panera for dinner and I had the new Poppyseed Strawberry Salad! It was so yummy, I am sure I will be having it a few more times this summer! I've been trying to do better and watch what I eat, so it makes me happy to find a new salad that I like.

Today has just been a normal Wednesday and we are 2 days closer to the weekend! Tonight we have just watched TV b/c it is raining and storming. Some roads in the city are flooding b/c of the rain, so I just stayed in.

Oh How I Love Weekends

We had a wonderful weekend here in sunny NC! We could not have had better weather finally! We were able to go out on our boat both days of the weekend and had such a good time. That was pretty much our weekend. Saturday we did not get off the lake til 7 and went to grab something to eat at Outback and to bed we went. We also went out on the lake on Sunday but didn't stay as long b/c I had somethings I had to do. Here is Buddy in his new life jacket. I know he really doesn't need one but I would feel much better if he had one on while he was on the boat. He was so funny with it on b/c he would walk side ways with it, I guess it felt funny to him.

After we went to the pet store to get Buddy his life jacket, we had to go grocery shopping. I absolutely can't stand grocery shopping. That is usually Christian's chore, but since we were right there I went with him. I always spend way too much money at the store and leave with only 2 bags. I also ran by Target b/c I wanted to get a bedspread for my guest room. When I got home last night I was so excited to put the new bedspread on the bed well........ it was supposed to be an 8 piece set well only 3 pieces were in the bag, the bedspread and 2 pillows. I was so mad b/c I usually always check stuff like that at the store but for some reason I didn't last night. So I had to wait til today and go back to change it, but it all worked out in the end!

Here is a picture of Christian and I on the boat on Sunday. Isn't Christian's straw hat cute? I call him my old man b/c he acts way older than he is but I love him so much!
