So one of mine and hd's favorite things to do is....

We are also huge fans of the television show LOST...
So back in 2007 when I came across LOST Puzzles...
it was obviously a no-brainer!!

I ended up buying three of the four puzzles in the LOST Series.
We started working on the first puzzle immediately,
and finished it within two and half days!

Seeing as how it didn't take us long at all,
we excitingly started the second puzzle...
....well that was back in 2007 while I was living in Kennesaw...

The puzzle made the trip back to Covington....
into my new bedroom....
and eventually into the attic...
where it has sat for the last two years!!!

Two weekends ago we decided it was time
to pull the puzzle out and finish it once and for all!!
(mainly so we could start the third puzzle!!!!)

After two hard weeks of working on this
ridiculous is now finished!!!!
And after all that traveling....we are only missing ONE piece.
(I was very upset when I realized this would be the case)

Hopefully we will be starting the third puzzle this weekend!

If you know me at all,
you know I am slightly obsessed with Target.

Hd and I make an appearance to Target at least
twice a weekend, not including our normal stops during the week.
-we even have a certain route we take when walking through the store-

After my post the other day about New Moon....
I came across a blog, giving away New Moon on DVD
AND a $15 Gift Card to.....TARGET!!
How perfect!

And to top things off, they have a good blog!
Check them out!

Team Edward

After all the hype about Twilight, it took hd
and I a while to convince ourselves that
we were actually going to sit down and watch it.

Once Twilight hit stands, we put it on Netflix
trying not to expect much.

To my surprise, I actually enjoyed it.
Weird, I know.
Some parts are very strange,
don't get me wrong,
but I liked the love story.

So this past weekend New Moon hit stands
and Netflix followed through and had
it in our mailbox on Saturday!
(anyone who doesn't have Netflix,
or hasn't tried it, SHOULD!)

So that night we cuddled on the couch to
decide if we would favor Edward or Jacob.
To my surprise, I am now Team Edward
and hd has decided Team Jacob.
-apparently he favors werewolves, who knew? ;)-

Here's to looking forward to Eclipse!
although we won't watch it in theaters, that's for sure!

Are you Team Edward or Team Jacob?
Or think the whole thing is overplayed?!

Better Luck Next Time

After a month long process and four interviews later....
I was offered the position, but unfortunately I had to turn it
down due to the offer they presented me with.

I was not trying to be greedy!
It's just the pay would barely be enough
for me to move, pay bills, and still manage to live off of.

I really hate that I had to turn it down because
I really did love the position and the company.
However, it looks as though God has something
better out there for me. it's back to the waiting game....

....good thing the weekend weather is going to
be beautiful and I get to spend it with my two
absolute favorites!!

Happy Birthday Megan!

Happy Birthday to my dear friend
Megan Toles Talbert!

I am so glad she is one of my best friends!

I was able to spend some time with her
last week while she was on Spring Break
and of course it was spent playing
with our puppies, The Wii,
Phase 10 and Apples to Apples!!! :)
I would not have had it any other way!

I hate that we are unable to make it to
Woodstock tonight to help her celebrate
however, she doesn't know she has a little
surprise coming her way! ;)

Happy Birthday Megan!
I hope your day is wonderful!!
Now that I got the call letting me know
she loved her little surprise....
I can post it online! :)

I found out yesterday I did get the job,
after four interviews! :)

I will be made an offer next week...
decide if I want to accept....
(which I really really really want to!!!)
and then starts the commute!

...well atleast for a couple of months...

and then it is off to the city!!

I cannot wait to move out and finally have my
own place again. Oh how lovely it will be.
Bills, however, well those I am not looking
