New Place

Well it's almost official we have found a new place. YAY!! I'm pretty excited it's super cute, all painted and has cute little touches and lots of storage. We looked at the place on Monday evening and jumped at the thought of living there and here it's only Thursday and it's ours we'll sign our lease this weekend or on Monday not sure what the Man's plans for the weekend are but I'm excited to make it my own and start decorating. I've got some work to do, bought an old dresser that needs some work and needs to be painted and I think that I'm also going to paint our headboard and foot board so that they match the dresser. Still need to figure out how I want to do it and what color (Our bedroom will be sage green, any suggestions).  I think that the other thing that has been going on is that I had to go to the doctor yesterday no fun. Last week I bumped my hand on a door frame and it caused a viscous cyst and to my dislike the Man wouldn't hit the top of my hand with a book. I also asked several of my old coworkers to  do the same and they wouldn't either which is strange since several of them have been to prison for violence. Anyway go to the doctor and find out what's wrong and he says most people just take a hard book and hit their hand with it, I would have just come home and had the Man do it but if he wouldn't do it the first time why would he do it the second time I ask. So instead I just had the doctor take a needle and poke it so that it popped, it looks worse now than it did before and hurts more too. I should have just taken it into my own hands, instead of going to the doctor.

V-Day I know it's a little late!!

V-day was so great, Mitch sent me flowers and work how great.
I was the only one in the office who got flowers, and that's not because they were all boys because there are only 2 male coworkers compared to the 7 females that work there. But I think I did pretty good with what I arranged for Mitch. Since he got his truck he's been wanting a Taunu cover for his truck and with my connections at my previous employment I was able to get one for him at a fraction of the cost. So yeah I rocked it. And we just had such a relaxing night and didn't have to deal with all the crazy people that were out and about.

Funny Things Kids Say

I'm going to share a story with you about how funny kids are and how they don't understand how things work. 
To set the stage Mitch and I were and his moms house for the day on Saturday. When we got there there were a few kids there
1. Conner, our nephew 6
2. Tanisha, someone my mother-in-law takes to church every Sunday 10
3,4 Cole and his twin brother, his name slips my mind, 5
The boys were going crazy and started chasing Mitch around and shooting him with candy, while Tanisha was in the kitchen helping Julie make sugar cookies and frosting the cookies. During the course of conversation with Julie, Mitch's mom, and Tanisha the topic of Tara, Mitch's sister, came up. Tara is pregnant at the moment and is extremely hormonal and moody, who can blame her right. Anyway we got to talking about how her child is going to be just like the boys who are running around and Julie said well yours will be the same way. Tanisha not really knowing what tense Julie was speaking in says, Julie both your kids are having kids. I soon corrected her and we went on with the conversation. A few minutes later Tanisha asked me so why don't you have kids yet, I tried to explain to her that we haven't been married that long and her response was doesn't Mitch want a kid someday. I told her to ask him thinking he would say yes just not yet. His response was NO. She was a little disappointed with that answer, not understanding that he was a little consumed with being chased, having candy launched at him, being beaten with foam swords and didn't think that he just at the moment he didn't want kids. A few hours later, while we were sitting down enjoying a few of those sugar cookies and chatting some more, Tanisha making sure Mitch isn't sitting by me continues to tell me how much she likes me and how fun I was. She looks over at Mitch sitting on the other couch saying you should put a baby in her belly. How funny, like she understands that it just doesn't happen like that. Anyway that was my funny moment of the day on Saturday

Any of you ever done zumba before? Well I've been going since we moved to Ririe, and let me tell you it's quite the workout especially if you're coordinated enough to get all of the foot movements and the hand motions down. Anyway, I didn't think I really wanted to go it's been a super long day and I kinda just wanted to relax. But instead my friend Kristin called and talked me into going along with Mitch saying your going so that I would get out of his hair, so that he could get some of his homework done. Which makes me wonder if he even did it, he was in the same position as he was when I left. Back to zumba, who came up with it and who thought about choreographing it to hip hop and pop music, I'm pretty sure that I wasn't meant to dance and if I was I should have started long before now. Oh well makes me feel good and get to see some friendly faces. Hope everyone else is having success with their cardio workouts.

Let's start with the Couch and Move to the Break in!

Ok well I took that picture like I told you I would. It's really getting me excited to get me to move back to our own place so that we can use it for real and have it where we want it to be.
 Anyway so excited about this couch it looks so much better than our old ones.

Alright on to the next piece of news, we were robbed a few weeks ago, we kept pretty quiet about it at the time so that people wouldn't be to worried and ask to many questions. Now it's out of our system we feel like we can share it without others being worried about it.  Alright here goes, I get a text from Mitch one afternoon, and it reads "we were broken into" I thought he was joking and responded with a very sarcastic "no way" after those initial texts it went further. Yes we were broken into and he'd been trying to get a hold of me for a few hours. Apparently while Mitch was at school and I was at work someone kicked in our door.

Mitch got home from school, walked up the back stairs and noticed that the door isn't closed. He walked in the door and looked around to see if anything big was missing and didn't see anything missing and goes into the bedroom to find that only one thing was missing. It was our plastic coke bottle bank that we had gotten on our honeymoon (of all things to have taken something we got on our honeymoon). He went back outside and called the police, long story shorter we had to get our door replaced along with an added deadbolt, we don't have a piggy bank, and the lights get left on whenever we leave the house.

Hopefully that will never happen again!

Starting Week 2

Well this is the start of week two at my internship. It's been going pretty good, I can't really complain, I'm really getting the hang of things and flying through those tax returns. The days go by really fast, they don't drag, and I learn something just about every day. The only downfall is that I work with a not so pleasant person, I attend school with him and he got caught distributing test bank questions to others in the department and almost got kicked out of school. The only reason he didn't was because he lied to the person who was in charge of the department. How stupid, why would you want to cheat your way through school, you don't learn anything and you wouldn't be able to actually practice because you really don't know what you are doing.

On another note we bought a couch over the weekend! Yay, I can't tell you how exciting it was to get a new couch. Well it's not really a new couch, haha kinda not. We bought it at the youth ranch and get this it had never been owned by anyone before. It had been dropped of by a furniture store that discontinued that model. It had only been there for less than one day. I'd take a pic but Mitch is sitting on it and he's not a fan of me taking pics. I'll post one later.

New Chapter

Just thought I'd update everyone on what's been going on lately. I just started my internship today, it was quite the experience. I've never started a job where I showed up and they handed me a pile of paper work and said get to it, and I'm not just talking about new employee paperwork. I'm talking about here's the information get started, no instructions or new employee orientation or anything just go. It was a little bit daunting but I got through it and did 2 I say two tax returns and worked on another 2. I hope I'm figuring it out. Let's see what else has been going on well about 3 weeks ago someone broke into our house, for anyone who didn't know we are living in Mitch's grandparents house. It was quite the experience to have someone break down your door and go through your things and take what they wanted without anyone being home to stop it. But we made out fine they only took our piggy bank, when they could have taken our tv or wii, no they just wanted money. Oh and one more bit of knowledge to share with you guys, I just got accepted to go to school during the summer so I will be finishing this July. BRING IT ON! And finally Mitch is taking classes right now and is doing good in his classes, he just took a test last Saturday and didn't think he did very good but I checked his score for him and he did better than any of his study group and better than he thought. He's so smart!!!
