Our apartment!

Okay, so I hope that I have blogged enough for all of you who actually read this (I don't know how many of you actually do....). My last post of the day is going to be of our little apartment. I took some pictures this morning. We really like our little apartment. It suites our needs for the most part. The only thing that it doesn't have, is the option to have a dog. That would make it perfect for Eric. He wants one so bad!! We are saving our change to buy one someday. So if any of you would like to add to our dog fund, it would be much appreciated!! Anyways, here is our apartment:

This is the family room. It's not terribly big, but it's comfortable. As you can see, this is where the front door is. You immediately walk into the family room and then go straight back to the dining room and kitchen.

Here is the dining room/kitchen. The kitchen isn't very big, but it has a lot of cupboard space and counter space for the size. I actually like the kitchen a lot. We even have two little bar stools which are fun to have. I eat lunch there a lot! The washer and dryer are in a closet next to the fridge, but you can't see those doors in this picture.

This really isn't a great pictures of our spare bedroom, but it was hard to get at an angle where you could see the whole thing. These are our two little shelves. You can see the chair to our desk against the wall. You can also see Eric's bamboo plant. This is quite possiby Eric's very favorite thing in the entire place. He likes to show people it whenever they come over. Isn't he cute? So yeah, we also have our bedroom and a bathroom, but they aren't very exciting, so I'll spare you pictures of them! I hope you like it. If you ever want to see it in person, just come on over! We love having guests. Our couch is even a fouton, so we could even have a sleepover!!

Salt and Pepper anyone?

So I'm going a little out of order here, but that's alright. This year for Halloween, Eric and I decided to be something that was cheap and easy. Eric was joking about being the singers Salt & Pepper, but then the thought came to me. We could be Salt and Pepper shakers. So we did. Eric dressed all in black and I dressed all in white. We then put the letters "S" and "P" on our shirts. I had some cardstock that we made little salt shaker hats out of and wrote "salt" and "pepper" on. I thought our costumes were pretty cute! Here we are wearing them:

Also, this year we were slackers and didn't carve pumpkins, but we did make sugar cookies. For any of your who know me pretty well, you know that I love makin sugar cookies. Eric and I had a fun time decorating them. Eric was getting pretty into it. I love that he is willing to do these types of things with me. He is such a great husband! I love him. Anyways, here are some pictures of our cookies:

Here is Eric decorating, in his Redskins jersey. They must have been playing that day!
Some of the cookies that we decorated! Aren't they cute. Especially the creepy skeleton cat! haha, kidding!

This is what happens when you let an 8 year old do your hair...

Two week-ends ago Eric and I went up to my cousins David's house. His little daughter Caitlyn was getting baptized. So we went up there for the evening. We went to her baptism which was nice and then we went back to their house for dinner. After dinner Caitlyn asked me if she could do my hair. Of course I said yes. What girl doesn't love it when you play with her hair? She tried a couple different styles, because she was "trying to find my style." Well here is the end product. I guess this is my new style!

Do you think that I should do my hair like this everyday? I thought it was pretty funny. She is such a fun little girl! After this, I went to join Eric and my cousin Ashley in the basement where they were playing guitar hero. Ashley is amazing at guitar hero. She totally killed Eric and I. I think Eric and I should get a wii... maybe someday when we have more money...

I'm such a little seamstress!

Ok well the title isn't exactly true. My mom gave me her old sewing machine, because I really want to learn to sew. The other week-end Eric pulled it out for me to try it out. Now this sewing machine is quite old, as you will be able to tell from the pictures. When Eric opened it up, the first thing he said was, "It smells like the 70's!" Let me tell you, he wasn't lieing. It's pretty awesome. Anyways, I read the instructions and got that thing going. Eric thinks it's cool that I want to get into sewing, so he took some pictures. I'm a little embarrased to put these pictures up, because I look pretty gross. I hadn't gotten ready for the day yet! Anyways, here are some sewing pictures!

Me posing with the machine. I think my face is saying, "I'm smiling for you but I really don't want be!"

Here I am trying to understand the directions from the 70's. I eventually got them.

Trying out the machine! Look at me go...

The end product of what I started to make that day. Isn't it so cute? I'm pretty proud of myself for doing this. Hand stitching those letters is hard. It isn't easy making them look good!

I got tagged!!

My friend Staci tagged me on her blog, so now I must play along or else it isn't any fun! So here we go:

Tag Rules: Go to the 3rd folder of your pictures and select the 3rd picture in. BLOG!

Alright, well this is a funny picture to those of us who were involved in this incident!! So Aubrey will definitely enjoy this. Two summers ago our apartment was being recarpeted, so we had to move all of our stuff off of the ground. One of our roomies was out of town, so we had to move all of her stuff for her. Well being the girls we are, we decided to pay a little dess up with the clothes in her closet. I think it was like midnight and we all had crazy little outfits on. We were running around the apartment taking random pictures... I think i will add another picture so that you can see all of the outfits. Yeah, so maybe this picture isn't so funny... but at the time it was HILARIOUS!!

Megan in her cool outfit!

All of us involved!
