I've said it before and I'll say it again. "I'm going to to start blogging more." Well here it's November and my last post is from March. I really do want to blog more. I miss writing. I miss the outlet. And I haven't scrapbooked in forever so I need to make sure I'm writing life down because it's going by way too fast.

We've officially put off buying a home for at least 6 more months. Our rent was drastically increasing every month because we were out of contract and with the holidays approaching we didn't want to move into a house in the middle of all of it. We resigned the lease on apartment on Wednesday. It was a little bittersweet. Since April, I've spent around 2 hours a day looking for houses and it's been really weird to just stop cold turkey. We put our first offer on a house the end of May and by the end of October we had submitted a total of 9, maybe 10 offers, I can't remember anymore. And for some reason it just never worked out. I only cried over 2 houses and it was at my point of total frustration and over houses that I really wanted. So we'll start looking again in the spring. Aside from frustration and wasted time I really am grateful that we do have a roof over our head and a place to call home. I know I will be sad when we move one day because it's been so fun having our first place. And let's face it- I'm seriously going to need therapy when I'm not a 60 second walk from Target and Cafe Rio.

Moving on... We had a HUGE accomplishment in our house this week. After 2 years of training... Zola can finally rollover! Here's the proof!

In other news... Codee has become a piece of furniture in our dining room. He is glued to his books every night! I will be so glad when his junior year is over! But I'll even more happy when he graduates in a year and half.  ;)
Blogger won't upload my photo of him studying  :( 
As for me... it's busy season at The Wood Connection so I'm spending 50-60 hours a week at work. And I'm still doing monthly segments on KUTV's Fresh Living. Here's one of our recent segments that was one of my favorites.

So we'll see how long I can keep us this blogging streak. Let's hope it's longer than just one post every 8 months.

The Search Is On

Where does time go? Seriously? How is that Codee and I have been married for almost 2 years? How is that I've been graduated from the U for 3 years? Wasn't I just cheering for the SL Bees last week? And when did the time come that we were old enough to buy a house?
That's right... Codee and I have started the process of becoming home owners! SCARY!! We've only been looking for about a month now and are still in the early stages of this long process but here we go...
If anyone has ANY advice we would love to hear it.

Life has made some small changes lately so here is an update to what blog followers I have left.

We went to Vegas for New Years to see our friends Seth and Kirie. People always ask what exciting things we are going to do in Vegas but to be honest we do NOTHING and it is freaking fabulous! We sleep in, make dinner, go grocery shopping and maybe get a Redbox. But we have the best time! Isn't Kirie the most adorable pregnant girl? Can't wait for Petri to get here!

Codee started the Engineering program at the U this semester. I am so proud that he has come this far and worked so hard to get where he is. When I see his homework it looks like some sort of ancient code. He will graduate in Spring 2014.
Isn't he adorable on his 1st day of school?

Since Codee is now going to school full time (he has always gone to school "full time" but now his classes are in the day) he is working a new job at UDOT. He is now working as a construction trainer. With day time school means less hours at work equaling less money. So we are now living on a student budget. Hasn't been too bad so far but if anyone has anyone cheap date ideas please send them my way.

My job has slowed down a little since our busy season ended but work is still crazy as ever. I seriosuly love my job! I love what I do. And I love the people I work with. I wish I was better at showing my appreciation sometimes but I am truly happy where I am right now.
