Birthdays, Graduations, Vera Bradley, and a New House

It has been over a week since my last blog entry and let me tell you, A LOT has happened with the Anderson fam. Much more than ordinary happenings in a standard 7 days.

Since my last post...

  • Pat, Matt's little brother graduated from college
  • My April 30th birthday came and went
  • Matt and I who were on vacation all last week, took a much needed getaway to Indiana (doesn't sound like much of a get away, but when the Vera Bradley Outlet Sale is in Fort Wayne it makes the trip purposeful.)
  • I did some SERIOUS damage at the Vera Bradley Outlet Sale (Thanks to everyone who gave me money for my birthday, I couldn't have done it without you!)
  • We officially closed on our house Friday morning
  • We officially moved into said house Friday Afternoon (Thanks Derek and Mom and Dad, we really couldn't have done it without you!)
  • We didn't have t.v. or internet so we rented Mario Kart for the Wii, which came out at the end of April some time, this made the time go much faster...
  • And as we speak, we are getting our dish installed and tonight the seller is supposed to re-grade our yard
Talk about a busy week.

The week in photographs....

Pat couldn't have done it without these two (Yey for supportive parents!)

Aww look at those handsome Anderson brothers!

The house is most definitely a work in progress. But this is what we've got so far.
