New Beginnings!

Off the market... our house that is, because we own it!!! As of today around 12:30 we finished the paper work. And man I am so excited! First of all we get to live in a space over twice as big as where we are now (with a yard, which Brooks loves)! Secondly, because we no longer have to deal with the stresses of planning on buying a house along with running our normal hectic lives! Now all we have to do is move in and its "move-in-ready" so hopefully with help it will be done soon. People say you find out who your true friends are when you move so we will see ... ha! 
Today after closing. We were so excited and went to McDonald's to celebrate!

We drove by the house the other night and the sold sign was already in the yard, of course we were excited and took a picture!

 Our SOLD sign. Its ours!!!

Brooks was also in desperate need of a new dog tag because the phone numbers on his were no longer good and we got to put our new address on there as well. He is so excited!! but he has no idea what is going on. As we try to pack he will lay on all of the stuff try to make sure we don't forget him. Poor thing

Something to ponder......
A girl from my high school got this preciuous puppy a couple weeks ago and justin and i loved her! It is exactly what justin wants for his next dog coloring and everything! I think she is gorgeous. Anyways this girl contacted me and she is going to have to give her away and asked if we wanted her?!?! We were so excited... until we thought about everything we have going on in our lives and how busy we are. With a new house and already stressful lives (although I procrastinate by doing things such as blogs instead of studying like i need to be doing right now!) we don't know what to do. It is just too hard to decide and not the best timing. But this precious puppy needs a home and Brooks would love her! Help? I need someone to tell me!!!!? 
How can you tell her no!?

Sarah's PV church shower was this weekend! She got a lot of awesome stuff and it was gorgeous! Her wedding is getting so close and it is so exciting!!!!! Its nice to sit back for a change and watch and only have to worry about helping the bride (aka bring her punch when she requests) rather than stressing like Sarah is (I remember how it feels!!!!) But its so exciting!
MOM- She was one of the hostess
The Bride!!!!
The wedding girls!
High school friends!
Excuse the appearance (I was really sick in this picture) This is what I made Sarah for the shower. It was my first attempt at sewing and it turned out pretty good...until it falls apart that is. There is no guarantee on what I make. It was reversible too!

After the shower people started asking me to make them for their friends. Who knows I may quit school and start my own apron business (or not Justin would hate that idea!). I made 3 for Sarah's mom already, I'll show pictures later!

Well a lot of randoms and a lot going on..... Off to studying (hopefully)!
