Our First...

Car together! We have been thinking about getting a new car for months now and finally got one about a week ago! It is our biggest purchase made together as a couple and it was very exciting, yet stressful.

It is a 2004 black Jeep Liberty Sport. I really really like it. Garrett has been so protective of it that he has washed it about 3 times since we have gotten it! haha. There is really no point in keeping it so clean in is bound to have some kind of precipitation.

It turns out that I couldn't go to Garrett's cousin's wedding in WA because I couldn't get off of work. :( boohoo.

So, Garrett and his fam headed off on Friday at 5 AM without me. It is always hard for me to be away from Garrett. The first few days I was fine, but today I am really missing him.
Last night I spent the night with Jessica since Trent is out of town too. Girl's Night! We ate good food, talked of course, and watched some chick flicks!
Tomorrow I am planning on working on my sewing until he gets home. I am not sure what time on Monday to expect him, but I will be waiting anxiously all day!

Was my birthday. My 21st birthday to be exact.

It was more of a laid back day that consisted of me shopping by myself for a few clothing items, going out to lunch with my mom, and then out to dinner with Garrett when he got off work. We went to McGrath's Fishhouse, which was delicious, but I was still full from my lunch with my mom. Too much food! haha.
Garrett got me a very special birthday gift....a new ring wrap to go around my engagment ring. My wedding band before was a plan white gold band and it was beautiful, but he decided to enhance it with a new band now that we are older. It was so sweet he got down on one knee to give it to me and it is so gorgeous! I love it.

Tonight I am heading over to my dad's house for some cake and icecream and then my birthday will be "officially" over. :(
That is until next year... :)

Shower, Cookies, Job

Good news...our shower is fixed! Woot Woot! haha.
It is so nice to be able to shower at our place, do the dishes again, and run water to brush our teeth with! (I never thought I would say that it is so nice to do dishes. haha)
I am very excited for tomorrow. Garrett and I are taking Trent and Jessica's engagement photos. It is going to be a lot of fun...and a perfect day for it.
I splurged a little yesterday and bought some St.Patrick's Day cookies from the store bakery. This is a splurge for us. When Garrett saw I had bought them he got so excited and started gathering up his glass and milk. I had to stop him to say, "these are expensive cookies, you can only have two a day..." We will see how long they will really last. haha.
We are still looking and thinking about a car. We got pre-approved for a loan. Now we just have to find the right car at the right price. This might take awhile...
I have applied to a job at Other Mothers and am really hoping I get it, so if you could pray for me on this I would really appreciate it!
Not much else going on, so until next time-have a good week. :)

This Week

I am sitting here enjoying a warm house. Looking outside makes me squirm a little bit. I am so ready for spring...along with the rest of Idaho! haha.
My birthday is in the middle of March and is always so unpredictible on the weather. Some years it it sunny and warm and other it is snowing and raining! It made planning a birthday party very difficult for me...thanks mom. :)
Things have slowed down this week compared to last and I am very grateful for that. Garrett and I have been able to hang out with friends quite a bit lately and it has been very fun. It will be hard to try and make new friendships like the ones we have now when we move to Moscow. :(
On an unfortunate side, our shower is broken AGAIN! This is the second time now within a few months. It is flooding whenever we run any water throughout the house. So, we can't use the shower, we can't do the dishes, and we can't run the water in the bathroom for very long.
The plumber came out yesterday but couldn't fix it, so I am waiting to hear from a different plumber today to see what he can do.
In the meantime, Garrett and I travel 3 minutes to my grandma's house to shower in the morning. I am now trying to figure out a way to bring my dishes to her house as well so that I can wash them there! haha. Hopefully, I won't have to do that and the drains will be unclogged today! :)
Well, that is about it for now. Garrett and I are going out tonight to watch a ceremony for Kamica being in the National Honor Society. So, that will be nice and a great honor for her. Good job, Mica!
Until next time, have a great week!

A Shot at Fame??

No, not really. But, Garrett and I might be in the background of a show called "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives."

The show came to Boise and will be here for 3 more days. We found out from the Lewis family that the show was coming to shoot an episode at the Westside Drive-in yesterday from 1:30-3:00. So, of course I called my mom and we all headed up to the drive-in to have our chance to meet Guy Fieri and possibly be on television!

It was so packed. There was probably about 50 people in the small drive-in. There was absolutely no seats left. So, we orded our food and tried to eat standing up. Guy came out for his first interview with a man who was seated right in from of where Garrett and I were standing.

We think we were in the shot, but they didn't ask us to move because we looked natural...not looking at the cameras and we were eating and talking with eachother.

There were some women standing behind us just watching and the coordinator guy asked them to move out of the way because they were in the shot. So, Garrett and me figured that if they were in the shot we definitely were! But we were never asked to move!

I am not sure when the show will air, but I am excited to see it and see if I can catch a glimpse of myself eating my philly cheesesteak sandwich! haha.

My little brothers got an autograph from him and their pictures with him. It was a pretty fun day.

What a Week

I am so thankful for this new week.
For a variety of different reasons last week was rough! More than rough, it was emotionally draining and just plain awful.
I am ready for a new and fresh week! Mercy comes with the morning, right? I am, however, grateful for many things this month.

Here are a few things I am looking forward to this March:
1. The Bachleor final episode tonight!
2. Garrett starting on the church worship team
3. Attending Kamica's National Honor Society ceremony
4. My 21st birthday on March 16th
5. Going up to Port Angeles, WA and Seattle for a weekend to see Garrett's family and celebrate a wedding with them
6. Our small group's 30 Days No Regrets party
7. Spending each Sunday night with friends

So, I am choosing to look forward to these things instead of focusing on the hard things of the past.
I am feeling better already. :)
