Updates, Updates!!

Although I promised photos from the Shane & Shane and Bethany Dillon concert, my card-reader needs to be replaced. (Hopefully photos to come soon!) However, as we thought it would be the music and preaching were fabulous! Lilly and I had a fantastic time!

We also got to hang out with Matt's folks this weekend. We always have fun spending time with them and walking their dog, Snickers. For being a beastly dog she is deathly afraid of my camera; every time I get it out she cowers under the stairs and refuses to come out. I hope that her and our soon-to-be puppy get along. She weighs over one hundred pounds... she could probably eat a puppy in one bite.

My wonderful Mother-in-Law also surprised me with her old sewing machine (it's a beaut!)!! I am pretty pumped because I ordinarily use my mothers, which is still being used quite frequently and is an hour and a half away! I plan on making all kinds of curtains and pillows for the new house! Hopefully it will cut down on cost and keep me out of a creative rut.
Speaking of the house, Matt and I stopped by it this weekend and did some measuring. It made us really excited to think in a little less than 60 days we will be settling in... It also made us realize there are still a lot of things we need to purchase, like a mail box, shower curtain rods, blinds, rugs, the list goes on and on!!

This week I also started an online class... back to school back to school... ahhh!!! I thought I was totally done since graduating with my bachelors in May but I realized that I could just take one class at a time and in a couple of years have my masters... (especially since I get to go for FREE!!!) Not sure if I will stick out or not~ Wish me luck!

I would love to have a sewing machine, but I don't even know how to use one. Good luck with all the home preparations! I know it's a little overwhelming, but it's also so much fun to have your own space!

I'm so happy that you guys will have your own place soon...I love to live vicariously through other people's new-home experiences. (Just ask Logan and Megan). A sewing maching will be super-handy...we kept needing to borrow one, so we finally got one of our own. It's an essential homeowner tool!
