BLACK Friday

WOWIE! Today my sister in law, Jen and I went out shopping @ 4 am this morning! We went to Walmart first and MAN, that was a JOKE! I went there in search of getting a KitchenAid mixer... I found it and happened to be the 9th person in line, and there were only 8!!!!! I stuck around for 45 minutes or so then I decided that I was not getting into a fight over a stupid mixer so I left to get other items we had gone there for. After Walmart, we went to Sears. That was not bad at ALL! I found the mixer that I wnated and they price matched the one @ Walmart sooooo I got the mixer for $130 plus an extra 10% off then I also got a $40 mail in rebate making it... $90!!!! That was my deal of the DAY!! I was so excited!! While I was at Sears, a woman was telling us a story about how she had just left Walmart and how she witnessed a knock down, drag out fight over the same KithenAid Mixer that I was waiting in line for!!! Way to be in the Holiday spirit, right?!?

Thanksgiving Day

This time is my FAVORITE time of year! I love spending time with my family, laughing, and sharing memories. I just wanted to say a few things that I am thankful for. I am thankful for a loving family, a great, hardworking husband, my home, my job, and most of all, my eternal marriage. Grateful hearts and happy spirits make this season one of my favorite. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Bummer : (

We did not end up getting the house. The seller had lied about his income to the bank and the bank was not having that. In the world of housing and financing, a foreclosure is WORSE than a bankruptcy. The bank decided to cancel the sale of the home all together and go forward with a foreclosure because the seller was dishonest. We are very frustrated because we waited for SSOO long and in the mean while we could have been looking for something else. Why would someone lie about something like that?

Thoughts from the heart

I have so many random things that I want to write about so I will spill a section on each...

I LOVE autumn time! It's my very favorite time of year, next to summer! I love the changing of colors and the cool breezes that float on by. I love the holidays that come with this time of year as well! There are also several birthdays to celebrate at this time as well! The release of TWILIGHT is coming in about a week as well! CAN"T WAIT!! My sis in law and I are going to a TWILIGHT party the Saturday after the premier and are totally stoked!

I have been more drawn to baby things lately... like making stuff for when our little one does arrive and I am not even preggers yet! I can definitely tell that we are ready for a new addition! We are waiting 'til we know where we are going to live first. And speaking of a house, we will find out if they accepted our offer on the 19th of November... 6 days and COUNTING!!!

I feel so blessed to have my sight so that I can see the beauties that Heavenly Father has created so that we may enjoy them. What a blessing it is to know that my Heavenly Father loves me and cares for me so much. I am grateful for a WONDERFUL husband who will always honor his priesthood and shows his love for me always.

Frustration... : (

Well, I was informed that we will now have to wait until November 19th to get a FINAL decision!!! We have been waiting for FOREVER!! It's sooooooo FRUSTRATING! Why can't the stinkin' banks make up their minds!!! That's EXACTLY 16 days away and trust me I will be counting... On a brighter note, I voted!!

Greg and I can hardly wait for our answer on "the house"!!! We are supposed to hear a "YES" or a counteroffer no later than Tuesday evening and the anticipation is KILLING us! We just want to know, but we know that patience will pay off! Some other good news, I got a RAISE from the architect! It was a very generous raise and it was very kind of him to do that considering that I only work like 7-10 hours a week and the fact that he also pays my health insurance premium! That same day, Rehab Authority called back and offered me my job back! (For those of you who don't know, I got layed off from the physical therapy office about a month ago because they we slowing down!) But anywho, they offered me my job back with the same schedule!!
That day was a great day and needless to say WE ARE TRULY BLESSED!! I am so grateful for the blessings that we receive daily and for the guidance that He gives us.
