Project 365: Day 319- October 15th

Woke up this morning and met my mom at Sam's Club so we could go shopping! :) While there, I bought Southwest Chipotle Egg Rolls. I should have taken a picture of them, but I forgot. Dang it, haha! But we had been looking EVERYWHERE for these things because they taste JUST like the Arizona Egg Rolls we had at Tumbleweed forever ago. Oh my heavens, they were so yummy! Then we headed to Walmart where we went grocery shopping and clothing shopping. I bought a new sweater that actually fits over my ever-growing tummy, a new bra (oh yes, I've grown a cup size, haha!), new panties to fit over my ever-growing behind, new jeans that I don't have to unbutton when I sit down, and new flannel pajama pants that are super comfy :) And of course, I bought groceries for our bare refrigerator, haha! I got plenty of snacks, drinks. Finally, we have food! I had such a good day with my mom :) It was just nice to get away and relax for a few!
Then Ethan came home and we just chillaxed for the …

Project 365: Day 318- October 14th

In honor of Project 101 in 1001, I decided to try a new recipe today in my new crock pot. I'm just going to be honest here-- I hate using new appliances, new pots, new pans... new anything because I hate getting them dirty! lol I want them to stay beautiful, perfect, and clean forever. But, obviously that can't happen, so if I'm going to get a crock pot dirty, might as well make it dirty with some yummy, yummy food! My first new recipe was: Cheesy Potatoes. Ethan's mom gave me the recipe and it was so good. I tweaked it just a little bit for my own taste, but here's what I did:
- Throw in one bag of Tater Tots on the bottom of the crock pot
- Add a bag of shredded cheddar cheese
- Add a small bowl of sour cream
- Add a can of cream of chicken soup (I think I should have added two)

Put all of that on high for a little over an hour and voila-- cheesy potatoes! We ate these with some toasted turkey/ham sandwiches and it was a great, quick, easy dinner! :)
And after d…

Project 365: Day 317- October 13th

I got to be a house-wif.. er... girlfriend today :) I did 4 loads of laundry and oh my heavens, I LOVED it! You know, you hear people complain all the time about doing laundry, but let me tell you something-- when you don't have a washer/dryer in your home for almost a year-- having one will BLESS YOUR SOUL hehe! I was in complete heaven today. All of the clothes in our house is clean and they smell so so good! I even washed our sheets and what not :) Oh, it was a good day hehe! 
Time Warner Cable stopped by and hooked up our new home phone today :) We even bought another cordless for the bedroom, so we have 2 phones in our house! I LOVE it. Of course, our first phone call was for food, haha! But we are so so happy we have this!
And Aaron's Furniture came and delivered our new fridge! We are going to rent one right now until we find one we can afford. It's only $40 a month, so we figured "Why not?" right? We LOVE it! So pretty, so big! I'm in heaven, haha! I ke…

Project 365: Day 316- October 12th

We woke up this morning, went and got breakfast (since we still do not have a fridge *sigh* lol) and headed over to the store to buy a few other things for the house. I bought a laundry basket for the bathroom, a new trashcan, a small fan because it gets SO hot in there during the day, and I bought a new basket for Ethan's deodorant, cologne, etc. We feel a lot more organized! :) And we bought a new trash can for the kitchen-- a small trash can. We love it:
After making these purchases, we came home and Ethan got things together to go find a refrigerator and to go pick up our new couch. While he was doing that, I decorated the kitchen:
We have a coffee maker, blender, sandwich maker, toaster hehe! And adorable fall decorations, right? lol As the day went on, Ethan and Bobby went and picked up our couch and unloaded it in the living room and my parents came up later that night with our new DVD stand/book shelf..... and here is what the living room looks like now:

We are SO unbelievabl…

Project 365: Day 315- October 11th

The day, as every day it seems, started out rough. I should probably just quit writing about it, haha. But anyways, once Baby B and I got some food in our system, we headed out to meet Grandma (excuse me, Gigi) at Pizza Hut. Yes, I have a huge craving for that place-- every single day. I had a huge salad (ranch, lettuce, cheese, eggs, onions, bacon.. oh yes, it was amazing), 3 slices of pepperoni deep dish pizza, and 2 breadsticks... with tons of pizza sauce. Oh my heavens, I could go for that right now! But anyways, it was yummy and since mom is on vacation this week, she went with me to purchase some decorations for our new house because today was moving day! First stop was Walmart, wahoo! We bought a new welcome mat, towels, shower liner, basket for the bathroom, tooth brush holder, soap dispenser... You'll see pics of that once I show our new place! :) And we went to Hobby Lobby. I purchased some bulbs for our Christmas tree and a star, but those will be shown later, haha!

Project 365: Day 314- October 10th

Happy 10/10/10 :) Ethan and I woke up this morning, grabbed some breakfast, and started working on some personal tasks. He wanted to learn a new song on his guitar and I needed to catch up on my Project 365 and another project I was working on (more about that later...) After we spent some time a part, we decided to go for a walk on the nature trail together. I've been working on walking 3x a week and Ethan has been helping me with that goal! :) While on the way there, I HAD to take some pictures of the gorgeous trees that are changing colors. Golly, this is my favorite time of year :)
Isn't that just gorgeous? I, of course, had to take another picture, haha! I am in love :)
I can't wait til the trees have all changed! Be ready for those pictures, haha!
After our walk on the trail, we stopped by our new place just so I could get some pictures of the outside. Oh yes, get excited haha! More pictures of the inside will be to come because moving day is steadily approaching!
