New house

This is what my kitchen looked like (needed the most contrast so I got it when it looked it's worst :)

This is what it now looks like now

I'm now working on my bedroom :) Hope it looks good when I'm done.

Okay, so I know that we get in a rut but seriously do not let your blinds get so dirty that your rags (yes, plural) look like this when you clean 3 blinds. That is an hour and a half of my life that I will never get back.

In other news, I never want to paint again. Good thing I have the living room and hallway yet.

I got to see my siblings at Thanksgiving. It was such a wonderful time. We had a blast. I wish that I lived closer to my family or that we all just lived closer to each other but it seems God has different plans for us. I'm thankful for the time that I do get to spend with them.

aren't we just totes adorbs? (translation for those who don't speak like a college girl: totally adorable)

And people feel bad for him. I tell you he's spoiled ;)

Everyone thinks I'm really funny. Here is proof. Okay not really but that would be a logical caption for this picture.

I decided that I wanted to make a wreath for the door of my new house. This is me making my wreath.

Okay so maybe I had a little help. We all watched Tangled and helped me make a wreath which was pretty time consuming. Who knew, right?This is the wreath I decided to make. It's very pretty and can be used all winter versus just at Christmas time

I moved the next Wednesday and started my new job the next day. Leighann drove up on Friday and helped me find furniture and move into my house. It was such a relief and a blessing to have her there. I don't know what I would have done without her. I had nothing and she helped me craiglist, Goodwill, and even dumpster dive to find my bed, 2 dressers, 2 bookcases, a table and chairs, a bench, a chair, and a possible craft table (that needs some work). We were so busy but we got so much done. My co-worker's boyfriend let us use his truck Saturday night and Sunday, which is the only way we were able to get all that furniture. What a Godsend.

Well, I have been at work far too long. Time to go home to my internetless house.

So Sorry

I know you think that I forgot all about this blog.... it's not true, I've just been busy.

Most of you know but in case you don't, I got a new job in Indiana at an University as a graphic designer. The whole turning in my application/interviews/and job offer took a month, which in my book is a pretty fast turn around seeing as I then had to find my own place, move, start a new job, and continue moving in. I started almost 2 weeks ago and love it. The job is very fun and I work with great people. I can't wait till I get my i phone so I can share all the different antics via phone. My first day they had a dry erase board with days crossed off till Dottie arrived. Then I had a banner saying "Welcome Dottie" but since they wrapped it around a book case it really says, "elcome ottie". Today my office space got Tony Dungyed, which just means there are sooooo many pictures of him all over my little cubicle wall that you can't really see the wall in places. We all have been playing Christmas music out of our computer speakers for each other and everyday at 4 we have music hour. Music hour is sometimes themed (like last Friday was Usher hour) but often is whatever song we want to play for everyone else that meets the University standards a.k.a no cuss words,crassness,etc and everyone just takes turns. It's a very fun work environment.

I hope to meet friends soon. It's really weird moving to a place where I only know 2 people and I live by myself. But I know with time this will be a really great place.

I will upload pictures later this week on my house and some late Thanksgiving photos.

Love you all!!!
