2 Tags

I'm still putting off putting up pictures of my house because my old roommate, Kaleena, promised me she'd come help me decorate. :) So once she comes to help, I'll put up some pictures. Anyway, in the meantime, here are two tags I thought could be fun.

1. Where did you meet your husband? He played baseball for our school, and what a hottie!
2. How long did you date before you got married? Well, 2 years in high school, then about 5 months after he got home from his mission.
3. How long have you been married? Almost 3 years.
4. What does he do to surprise you? Picks up his socks, hangs up his towel... :)
5. What is your favorite feature of his? His smile! And his body type (which sounds weird because he's shorter than me, but I love the way he's built.)
6.What is your favorite quality? How he treats me.
7. Does he have a nickname for you? He just calls me hon.
8. What is his favorite food? Biscuits and gravy....I've never made that. Hmm..maybe I should?
9. What is his favorite sport? Baseball
10. When and where did you first kiss? At his house in Bancroft outside before I drove home.
11. What is your favorite thing to do as a couple? Pretty much anything we can do together is fun.
12.Do you have children? One girl, Macie Lourene.
13. Does he have any hidden talents? He's played the violin since he was seven.
14. How old is he? 24
15. Who said I love you first? He did.
16. What is his favorite music? He likes rock. Smashing Pumpkins.
17. What do you admire most about him? How he is so driven in everything he does. He never does something halfway. That's impressive.
18. What is his favorite color? I don't know if he really has a favorite color.
19. Will he read this? He wouldn't if I hadn't told him I was doing a tag about him. Now he probably will and be embarrassed and make me change it. :)
20. People I tag. Kaleena, Jesse, Jess, Kristin, Celeste, Beth, Tawny, all my roommates...anyone who would like to tell us about your wonderful husbands.

Yes, it is official...actually it was official on November 5th. We are homeowners! I've been procrastinating putting anything on our blog because I don't have any pictures yet. Why would I show everyone pictures of boxes. I know, I know...I've been here for almost two weeks, but once we actually moved in, neither of us felt like doing anything. So here we sit...still not really unpacked very much. Anyway, we are getting there, kind of, and when we get it a little more presentable, I'll post pictures. We are just so grateful to finally be here, and we really appreciate all of those who helped us move, and for those who watched Macie while we were building. We love you all!

Halloween Festivities!

Well, our Halloween wasn't really very exciting. Macie and I took the day off work to clean our house. We cleaned all day. How fun is that? But it got better because I put Macie in her witch costume and took her to Lee's to get some candy, then we all went to the Aggie basketball game. It was Macie's first game not in my tummy. She did good til about halftime when she got tired and fell asleep. These pictures don't really do her justice because she really did look cute. Thanks to a lady in my ward who let me borrow the outfit!

My Sleeping Babes...

So people always say how sweet their baby looks while they are asleep. I agree, but for some reason I have trouble getting good pictures of Macie when she's sleeping. Is anybody seeing a pattern here?

I'm not sure why, but she just falls right to sleep as long as she can pull a blanket up close to her face.  Dustin was getting Macie in her pj's and forgot to unbutton her shirt before he took it off.  I was in the kitchen and was listening to him just laugh and laugh.  Now I can see why.
Here is Macie and I, hard at work.

Anyway, not a lot going on. Just trying to get an inspection on our house so we can close. We'll hopefully be posting soon as official homeowners...who knows when that will be. :)
