House Renovations

So the renovations are coming along slowly but surely. I'm sorry I haven't uploaded any pictures. i will try to get them up soon. SO far we have all but 1 cabinet installed (we were missing one piece but we have it now and will be finishing this week). WE need to cut and install the counter tops. By the end of the day today we will have all electrical done, and then once the counter tops are installed we will have out appliances installed! Right now they are just sitting in the breakfast nook teasing us since we can't actually use them yet! Once everything is installed we will finish painting!! I can't wait! Pictures coming soon, but thought I would give you a quick update!

Christmas Moola

I LOVE Christmas time, and I can feel it quickly approaching! Everything in me wants to begin decorating and shopping for gifts, especially with Jon's birthday coming up here in the next few weeks! I found this Christmas budget planner on this blog of a friends that blogs about "good deals". You should check it out! But for now I will post the budget planner - upload it and let me know if you use it and like it! I'm going to try to use it this year!

Today I have been contemplating why becoming an electrician or plumber isn't much more prestigious. It seems to me they get paid an awful lot.

I hope my husband isn't upset with me for posting this.

I CANNOT believe that I am 26. I know I am still very young, but 26 sounds so much further down the road than I feel. Maybe that is why a married a younger man ;)! But I did have a fantastic birthday! Thanks for all of those who wished me well via facebook, and who helped to make my day special!
First thing yesterday morning Jon had me open my gift from him. It was a beautiful new winter coat, and lucky for me yesterday morning it was cold enough to wear it! Jon and I actually road to church together, which we haven't gotten to do since we moved to Louisville, and he sat with me through the worship service - he is normally in the video booth - and it was so sweet! We also got to make a stop at starbucks on the way to church!

After church we went to my Grandparents house for lunch. There I opened other gifts, I got a little spending money, a few giftcards to Macy's from Jon's mom and his grandparents, and his grandparents also got me an adorable pandora bead shaped like a house in honor of Jon and I's first home!

My parents got me this incredible purse from Banana Republic! It has red interior which is adorable and it look FABULOUS with my new coat!
Once we left my grandparents Jon had a few of my closest friends waiting for us at my parents house as a surprise to me (Thanks Lindsey Poenie for helping Jon out with that one!) Lindsey, Jenna, Sarah Cress, and the Laing's. They had chocolate meringue pie from the homemade ice cream and pie kitchen, and we just hung out all afternoon!

For dinner Jon took me to my FAVORITE restaurant, Jack Frye's. It was such a fantastic Birthday! My mom is actually in Florida this week, so I did miss spending time with her, she always makes things so special, but Jon really went above and beyond! I'm so thankful for a Savior who loves me enough to provide such sweet people in my life to show me His love!
