fabric & oilcloth...

A.H. Mercantile Co. is going to stop selling fabric.
They are offering 40% off when you enter the coupon code
ALLGONE at checkout.

I am planning on purchasing a few yards of this oilcloth
to make a tablecloth!
They have an awesome selection of oilcloth!

Oilcloth International features several project ideas!

Work is going great for both of us. finally starting to "settle in".
Sometimes it doesn't feel real that we are here to stay
because our stuff isn't here and we don't have a house of our own.

Lauren and I are meeting up today for lunch and maybe some shopping afterwards.
Haven't seen her in 5 weeks.
Can't wait to see that baby belly.
She says Gage is kicking all the time now, so hopefully I will feel him today! :)
She and Chris got back from Philadelphia on Tuesday.
Everything checked out really well.
Gage is growing big and strong...I think she told me he is already over three pounds!
The doctors told them that his lung-to-head circumference is 2.4.
Which means really good things for how well he will do when he gets here.
Lauren has still been feeling great!
She told me the other day that she is very exhausted (physically, mentally and emotionally)though.
Only about 9 more weeks! :)
I can't wait to meet him!

My friend Laura from Kansas found out she is having a little GIRL is December!
So excited for her and Lee!
Anderson will be a big brother to a baby sister!

We had an open house last weekend!
I think one couple came from Connecticut!
Please pray!

Well, I think that is all for now!
Just thinking about how blessed we are and trying to remember Attitude is everything!

headed to Milledgeville to meet with an old friend from church to get pre-approved for a house!

then headed home to cut grass and freshen things up for an open house on Sunday.

Work is going great for both of us!
The hardest part for me is adjusting to working 10 hour shifts!
Having a day off during the week is nice though!
They want me out of orientation in less than 6 weeks...we will see about that!

Alan is having to read and learn alot about his job.

Our co-workers are nice and have been super welcoming.

I can't believe we have been here almost a month!

The house from previous posts is still on the market...
but so is ours...
so we will just need to wait and see what happens!

Two of my friends from here had baby girls last week! So precious!
I think I am gonna take pictures for one of them so I will share here.

Last night we went to Lia and Brads' (sister in law and brother in law) for dinner.
We had fun with them .
Alan and I both got beat by a four year old at Wii HomeRun Derby!

That's about all that has been going on here.

Looking forward to seeing our awesome friends Libby, Ken, and Luke next weekend!
Luke is almost 8 months old!!!

day 2...

nice and short.
all about the benefits.

We just got home from Alan's cousin Daniel, and his wife Amy's house.
They just bought it!
It was built in 1893!
We were doing some serious manual labor to help them out.
It was fun!
I can't wait to see what it will look like when they are done.
And I'll ask them if it's ok to share some pictures here!

This blog is getting boring...
