Home Sweet Home

So we have an apartment/townhouse. We found a cute little townhouse apartment over off of 3300 South behind the Century movie theater! (its probably about 3150 South 200 East) We are so excited to be able to call it ours. Cody is really excited that we have a place that we can call our own for a while. We are hoping to buy a house next year or so, but we will see how it all goes. We are going to sign the papers on Friday and pay our first month's rent! Hooray! Bills! hahaha not really, but we are just glad we have a pretty affordable, nice place to live. Its a two bedroom, 1 1/2 bath (I wanted to have more than just 1 bathroom so that people that came to visit didn't have to be graced by anything Cody or I might leave out in the bathroom, ie. Gorilla Snot Gel all over the sink....Cody...). And we have a cute little kitchen with nice wood cabinets and a nice sized family room for our furniture. I am so glad it has all come together so nicely! We are also glad we have a two bedroom, so that if we have a visitor like Kelly or my mom, we have a bed for them, and they don't have to camp out on the couch! We also needed a room to put our computers, and Cody's wireless media center for the TV, so it worked out perfectly! I will post pictures of it once we are all moved in and it actually has stuff in it. Maybe I will do before and after shots so you can see how well or how badly I did with decorating the space! :) So anything we get from our registry, I will be very grateful for! OBVIOUSLY! Hope you guys are all doing well! Love you all!

So we have taken another trip to California, this time for a bridal shower for me, and my wonderfully adorable nephew, Rhett's blessing. Here is a picture I stole from my sister of Rhett in his blessing outfit. How is anyone ever going to be able to say no to this kid? Really? I know I will pretty much not be able to if he keeps this up! Anyway, Saturday was the shower, and I would have to say it was pretty pleasant, (coming from someone who does not like bridal showers or any type of shower for that matter, what can I say, I just do not enjoy being the center of attention). I came out with a lot of things to cook with, which I was really happy about, because I have been worried about cooking and dishes and so forth. I had a lot of fun visiting with people that I do not get to see very often. It was nice.
Sunday was little Rhett's blessing. It was a little chaotic leaving to get to the church in Simi with me, Cody and my parents (mostly my dad), but we made it. It was a great day. We then went to Kelly and Randy's house for a luncheon and we basically just got to hang out with friends and family all day. It was a little overwhelming with all of those people in two rooms. It was also Cody's first experience with a lot of people from the family, so that was good for him. But we had to keep our visit more breif than we had wanted and headed back early evening to the airport.
All and all it was a good trip, but we had to get back to work and reality. Vacations are nice tho! :)
Oh, and we are now at 29 days! :) Thank you everyone for your nice comments on your response cards, looking forward to getting more of them!
