So I know it has been a while since I have posted, and I am sorry about that. But there really hasn't been much to blog about. I guess it seems like that, because everything we have blogged (if blogged isn't a word, it sure is now) about has been something significant.
But our last month has been nice, there hasn't been too much snow. We had to take down our adorable Christmas decorations down, which I was SO sad about. We have been working on our meal planning, and planning a menu for the week. It has been working really well. We have drawn up a budget for us, since we plan on buying a house sometime this year. It hasn't been very tough for us to stick to. I got a bonus at work, and Cody will as well, so we have decided to buy new counches that I have fallen in love with. We are very excited to buy those in a couple weeks.
We are planning a trip to California next month. For our one year anniversary (since we started dating eachother) which also happens to be Valentine's Day, we figured we would take a trip to California and go to Disneyland together. Also we want to go to dinner near the ocean for actual Valentine's Day. So that will be a lot of fun. Plus, I need a visit to my family, it has been way too long.
So that will be us for the next month. Just looking about weekly or more for a home, trying to see what exactly is out there, in the areas we would like to live as we start our family in a couple years.
Other than that it has just been life as usual. Although I have gotten a bit spoiled this month. Cody bought me the entire Twilight series in hardback (I had paperback) and 2 hoodies and a new purse! I seriously am spoiled to the MAX! He takes such good care of me, I couldn't have asked for more. Anything that he can do to make my life easier, he will do. Like the other day, he took the vents off the walls and painted them white, because he thought it looked better, and it would make me happy (plus he was bored at home while I was at work). See, we need a house so Cody doesn't go crazy with no improvement projects that he can do, actually, it is driving us both crazy. I want to paint, he wants to knock walls down and build things...its just time to get our own space instead of renting!
I hope you all are well. Hope to hear from you all as we have been, its been great to keep up with everyone and what they are all doing. Keep up the good work!

Merry Christmas!

Sorry, I am a bit late on this post, but life has been kind of crazy. I am sure most of you can relate. So, this was our first Christmas together, and man was it fun. Online shopping was the only was for us to go this year. We practically never have any time apart other than work, so its hard to be sneaky and shop, so I did my shopping right after Cody left for work, and while I was getting ready to go to work. Cody did his shopping right after he got home from work, while I was still at work. We both did well with our gifts this year. We were good listeners, and got the exact gift that the other had their eye on. We also bought some new stuff for eachother on our days off together, but we didnt wrap them, since we already knew about them.

This is my favorite thing ever, our Christmas tree! I was in love with it! We got all our ornaments the day after Thanksgiving when they were on sale, and I decided to hand tie bows for it as well. It turned out great, and really made it feel like home and feel like Christmas.

Here is me, opening presents on Christmas morning, we got eachother new pjs on Christmas eve, because that is a tradition in both of our families. We had a lot of fun figuring out the traditions we wanted to encorporate in our life from our families. I had just gotten out of the shower, so I am not very put together.

And here is Codes opening his, he was all about reading all the features on his gift. It made me laugh, he had to figure all of it out before he even got it out of the package. I think he read the entire box!

This is what Cody got from me. He has wanted an electric razor for quite a while. We figure it would be better for his little sensitive skin than a sharp razor. And he can do it without making as much of a mess, which I love! And I love that he now shaves more often!

I got a CHI hair straightener for Christmas this year. Cody must have listened the entire time we were dating to figure this one out. I think I mentioned it to him about 8 months ago. But being the good gift giver he is, he was spot on! I was so excited!

Here is our pride and joy....and Xbox Elite! We have been waiting for this since before we got married. It had been so hard to leave it in the top of the closet for Christmas. But we both wanted it so bad, so we decided about the time we decided to get married, to get it for our house. We have had a lot of fun playing together with it. One of our favorite games is FORZA, its a racing game and we love it! And we are excited to have people over and play Rock Band!
Well, I hope everyone else had a wonderful Christmas!
