TOFW & Fort Worth Art Festival

I had a blast with these girls at Time Out For Women the weekend before last. I went a couple years ago with family, and this year I got to go with friends and family. My sister-in-law left early, so she isn't in our group photo. If you haven't been before, I highly recommend it! They give you a tote bag. It really is all about the tote bag. Once you go, you will understand what I am talking about. I have to admit, I was a little disappointed with the tote bag this year. My other bag from 2 years ago is much cuter. They slacked a little bit on that this year. The messages were great. The music was fantastic. I felt spiritually uplifted for sure. Plus, I got to take a day off from work. It was a great weekend.

We went to the Art Festival in Forth Worth this weekend (the biggest art festival in Texas). It was pretty sweet. The weather was perfect. They had SO many neat things to see. People from all over the U.S. displayed their art. I am glad we went, and I was happy to get out of the house and take a break from working on my talk that I gave Sunday. That was the second talk I have given in this ward, and we have only been in the ward a little over a year and a half. Adam gave his second talk in February. I am sure when we move, we will be giving talks in the new ward fairly soon. We have given talks every year since we have been married, but I wasn't expecting 3 within a 2 year period. Maybe we won't be asked to give talks soon. Not that it matters, I was just surprised. I actually enjoy preparing talks, because I learn SO much.

I am starting to get really excited about our house!!!

I CAN'T WAIT TO MOVE IN AND DECORATE!!! We are going to go see it this weekend :)

We are planning to go to a different art show Saturday. They have so many events here in Texas. Should be another fun weekend.

We just bought a HOUSE! :)

I know everyone already knows via Facebook, but I thought I would post it on blogger as well. I have been M.I.A lately, and its because we have been house hunting like crazy the past couple months.

We are SO incredibly excited that we officially own our first house :) We are so ready to get out of the apartment life, settle down, and start a family. This is exactly what it will look like, minus the grass in front of the garage ;) I got lots of comments on Facebook about that. lol

It has 5 bedrooms (we converted one to a media room), a game room, 3 bathrooms, and its 3,100 square feet. It will be ready the end of June. Building is SO fun. Charlie will be excited to have a backyard!

Here is the floor plan of the first floor:

I love that their is a bedroom right next to the Master bedroom. This will definitely be the nursery when we start having kids.
