Where we will be living for the next year!

No, we are not moving. We just got our lease renewal in the mail the other day, and decided that we are going to stay for another year.

Since my parents have now been out and seen our place, I decided I can finally post some pictures of it. I took most of these pictures two weeks into the move, but everything looks pretty much the same. I can't believe we have almost been here a year.


Those doors lead to the laundry room. Love our LG washer and Dryer.

Built in shelves next to the closet

Our front door. Our living room is to our left when we walk in, and the closet + bookshelf to our right.

This was before I put up the T
This is what it looks like now.

We bring our nice grey duvet cover out in the fall/winter

Our Desk

Thats all the pictures I took in the past. I am happy that we are renewing our lease for another year! Its a perfect set up for Charlie. The dog park is right below us. Oh, and we have a garage now!!! They were out of garages when we first moved in.

He loves to watch other dogs from the balcony.

They have two dog parks. The one to the left is the big dog park, and it is Charlie's favorite.

This is our view from our balcony.

I will miss this place when we finally move, and I know Charlie will too. It will be nice to get a house in the future though. We just need to figure out where we are going to settle down.

Happy 4th!

Now that the 4th of July Breakfast if over, I get to just relax with my boys! I <3 them

Adam helped me make 48 cinnamon rolls last night, and he cut up two large watermelons while I baked my two breakfast casseroles. Check out my foodie blog for the recipe. We had a good turnout, and I am so thankful for everyone who helped us out at the breakfast.  We tried to do red white and blue pancakes, but we didn't have enough food coloring. The red pancakes were pink lol. We had yummy costco muffins, donut holes with red white and blue sprinkles, breakfast casseroles, cinnamon rolls, and fruit salad.

I like how wards out here do bike parades. It was fun to watch the kids ride around on their decorated bikes. We had water balloons for the kids. Adam and I did a toss, and then turned it into a water balloon fight :) We had volleyball going on as well. Our ward rocks! I was surprised at how many people stayed for the activities. I figured most people would come, eat, and leave.

I think I will be off the hook for a while, as far as being incharge of activities. I was the ward coordinator for the stake activity in April and Adam and I + the Shaffers were incharge of the 4th of July breakfast this morning.

Working 6 days a week makes it hard to have time for extra things anyways, when you work 9-10 hrs a day. Adam's gone most weeks out of the month, so when I get off work Saturdays I just want to spend every min with him. Wed and Sat are my half days. My friends know that Wednesdays are pool days, and Sat is date night.
