I really hate that Bob has to work two nights a week, but at the same time I love my time to get things done: like be a more regular blogger! Since my last post I have been up north and back. We left Friday morning after trying to get everything done before we left. We left like 45 minutes late but got everything done! Friday we got to Bountiful and tried to go get my dress...fail! I did call earlier and was told it was done. but when I got there it was wet from being washed. It was good they washed it but I wanted it so bad! I had to leave it there to dry but went back Saturday morning and it was perfect! I got it and loved it just as much as I did the first time I wore it! Friday night we went out to dinner with my Uncle and his family. We went to this amazing pizza place in Salt Lake-very very good pizza. Then we just went home and called it a night. Saturday Bob and I got up early so we could go to Salt Lake and run some errands before the dress shop opened and before we had to be at the shower. The first stop was to pick up our bouquet and boutonniere! We are supposed to be taking our bridals this weekend and need them for that. I was a little nervous to see how they turned out but I was so pleased!! Bob's friend did such a great job and I can't wait for him to do the rest of our flowers! After that he took me home then I went with my sister to get my dress then we headed out to Tooele for a combined baby/bridal shower. It was way to hard on my mom to plan two separate ones so we all agreed that a twofer shower would be fine. My mom did and awesome job, everything looked so cute and I had an awesome time! For multiple reasons I only had one friend who was able to come and I am so glad she did! I loved opening all the wonderful things people got Bob and I, we are blessed for sure! After the cleanup we headed back to Bountiful and just relaxed for the night. Grandma made us some dinner and then Bob and I rented Last Vegas for everyone...and funny enough neither of us watched it! We were just so tired and I never really make it through movies. Sunday we lounged around some more, my parents came out to chat for a bit before we left-which was really nice. We eventually got out of there around 230 which was the plan from the beginning so that was good. The drive home went good, not as many stops and no baby came out so it was a pretty successful trip I think.
This is both of our presents...she got a lot more it seems but it's ok! Mine are really just stacked nicer!
Since we got home a lot has happened! There has been an apartment up the street from us that has had a sign out for a while now. We really like the complex, we have a friend who lives there. We kept telling ourselves it's too soon...it's too soon. We got our tax returns and had a tour and fell in love! It has everything we want in the location we love so we put an application in and it got approved!!! We have our very first apartment!! YAY! We haven't done much with it except eat pizza and move Bob's storage unit stuff into it. We are both still able to live in our current places so gradually I will move stuff in there and Bob will just live there until we get married. He currently hates his housing and can't live there another moment. That was dramatic but he does hate it. I don't have any pictures yet but I will next week I am sure! Another amazing thing happened to us yesterday: Bob finally got a new job, a job he has been needing for almost 6 months now! It is just such a testimony that we are suppose to be here and that the Lord hasn't forgotten about us! The last fantastic thing about yesterday: I have been trying to win tickets to the Dixie Fest 2014 on the radio and I finally did!!!!! I was so quick, and one of the only callers, so I was caller 1, 3, and 5! 5 is what you needed to be so I won!! I was so happy! It's not like they were expensive but now I am glad I don't have to fork out the money to go. American Authors here I come!! I hear it on the radio now and all the contests too I just laugh and yell "already won mine!" I tried my hardest to convince Bob to come with me now but he hates concerts! So I am hoping that Aubrey can make it up here to go with me! If not I need a concert buddy people! March 7th at 6pm!
That's about it for now, this weekend will be busy which is normal for us. I have a shower on Friday night and hopefully if the weather is good we are taking our bridals on Saturday! Cross your fingers for me ok!?
