Love, love, love our new home!

We celebrated last night because Adam got his bonus!!! :) Check back later for more pics of the house.

Its been a little over 2 weeks since we have moved in our new home. Its the most awesome feeling knowing this is OUR place. I still can't believe we have such a beautiful house! We sure love it! What is not to love though?  Charlie now has his own backyard, and tons of space to roam around. He is one happy boy! He is so funny though, because he has to be in the same room as us. He is definitely an at your feet dog.

I sometimes forget that we have an upstairs. lol. I am not used to having SO much space. We bought a kitchen table and some couches for the front room from Ashley's, so we now have furniture for all the rooms downstairs. Our upstairs is completely empty. Adam does have his projector set up in the media room though with our camping chairs lol. He has been playing lots of xbox lately. Two of our guitars broke during the move, so we are going to need to get new ones if we want to play rock band or guitar hero. I personally like doing the dance games on the kinect the most.

Since I am jobless, I got everything unpacked quickly. Everything was unpacked and set up a few days after moving in. I haven't started looking for a job yet. I am not even sure if I am going to work full time, part time, or even at all. You read that right, I said or even at all. I am enjoying this break. I have explored Mckinney, gone to Lowe's and Home Depot frequently, done a lot of grocery shopping, window shopping, watched a lot of Ghost Whisperer, and have done some P90x.

I thought it was going to be hard to do P90x, but it really isn't. I have completed every single dvd that I have put in. The only one I have been avoiding is the chest one, because what girl feels she needs to work that area? I am sure I can handle the video, I just don't feel like doing that one. I have been rotating between the rest of the videos.

 I haven't been doing them in order either. I started with the yoga dvd, and by the time I was done with it, I felt like I had been working out longer than an hour. I then thought well Pilates is slow so the time just goes by slower, but then I turned it back on to see how long it was and discovered it was and hour and a half. I really enjoyed that one, but no wonder it seemed like a long hour! I don't feel like I am going to lose any more weight. I lost a few pounds initially, but have stayed the same for a while now. I am not trying to lose weight. I do want to tone up though. I have just been doing zumba the past year, and my body needs something new. I don't do the dvd's everyday either. I initially did, but I have decided to just do them every other day. Who knows how long I will last doing this. I am already starting to get bored.

I have met a few people in the ward so far, and everyone seem really nice. They have a recipe club which I am excited about. I am sure I will start cooking a lot more, now that I have SO much time on my hands. The days use to seem so short when I worked 10 hour days. I now feel like I have all the time in the world. I know that will all change when we have a baby. I am thinking the second bedroom downstairs will not stay an office for very long, if you catch my drift.

We are just loving every minute of this new stage in our lives. Love, love LOVE our house! I especially love our large open kitchen. I have so much space which makes cooking so much more enjoyable. I need to update my cooking blog with lots of recipes. I never rush to do that though because I don't let people know anymore when I post a new recipe. If you want to know when I post something new, you will just have to follow my recipe blog. Mom, did you read that? I know you are like the only one who looks at it. lol. I did it for myself though. I wanted to make it easy for me to find recipes. I hated going through my printed off recipes, or trying to find the recipe again online. It took too much time. The same reason I love pinterest. You can save everything to one page. It makes life so much easier! However, I feel like Pinterest needs a search tool for each board. Sometimes it takes me a while to find stuff on there.

Anyways, just wanted to mainly say we love our new home!
