Loving life...

I didn't realize it had been so long since I last posted - time flies!

Aaron and I had a wonderful night out last night for our anniversary ( I didn't even make him got to the bookstore at midnight for my copy of the new Harry Potter book). We had a nice dinner at the Outback, saw the new Harry Potter movie and stayed at a really cool hotel with themed rooms with big jacuzzi tubs and chilled cider included. Our room had a "Serengeti" theme with a big alligator statue, rock walls and a big (fake) rhino head on the wall. It was fun to do something a little different, anyway!

We bought all of our appliances for our new house today - it's all getting pretty exciting now that we are getting closer to the move in day. So now we just have to tackle the furniture issue and we are all set!

Aaron finally got his official offer letter signed, so all is well in our world! Busy and well...it doesn't get any better than that!

I was putting away groceries and Rich came out all pouty asking if I'd read your blog yet this morning. Seems you made him a bit jealous...dinner, a movie, a hotel room..."Wish we could afford to do something like that for our anniversary!" Frankly, it was kind of funny...Rich doesn't get pouty all that often! Glad to hear you finally got to go out and celebrate! Sounds like a fun night!

It was the other part of your post that really got my jealousy juices flowing...the only new furniture we've ever been able to buy in our almost 17 years of marriage have been a couch, a chair, a cabinet, and a dresser (unless you count a crib, that is). And window treatments...forget it--we've been hear almost four years now and we've still just got the mini blinds that the house came with. Sounds like you all are having a lot of fun picking out things! Can't wait to see pictures of everything once you get all settled in!

What a fun time! That hotel room sounds so cool. I've never stayed anywhere like that before. I'm so glad y'all were able to enjoy yourselves so much.

And the new house and stuff ... that is a loving life moment! Enjoy it!

Glad y'all had a nice anniversary!
And new appliances and furniture for a new house, yep, it all sounds good and like such fun! Pictures will be good when you get settled.

Wow - now that's some good news! Sounds like a really fun hotel - glad you had such a good time!

New appliances - how fun! Did you end up having to get the really expensive fridge that would fit correctly?

And great news on the job front too!! Can't beat that!
