So Long....

So, I'm pretty sure that I'm not so good at this whole blogging thing. I guess I just don't feel like I have much news to give. But now that I really think about it, I guess I have some news.
First, James and I are planning on moving to Oregon. We're taking the weekend to check some things out up there and to see what our chances are as far as getting jobs. Cause as of right now, Cedar City has absolutely no job market. Also, if we do move to Oregon, James will be attending UBI. It is a school devoted to bicycles. He will be taking two courses. One will cover anything and everything to do with bike repair, building, maintenance, etc. The other course will be shop management. So that's what we are planning for right now. James hates his job, so if nothing else, moving to Oregon will help him be happier just from having a different job. I'm looking forward to that. I miss my happier husband. (He's still amazing and wonderful and perfect. I just want him to be happy again).
Other news: my cousin, Jenni Sue, is having a baby girl!!! Her name will be Alexis, and she will definitely be the cutest baby girl EVER (especially according to Aunt Danielle, who is the grandmother). Aunt Danielle has been wanting a grand baby for SO long, and she is finally going to get her wish. I can only imagine how much that baby girl is going to be spoiled. I can't wait to meet her!
Well, other than that, I don't have much news. For any of those thinking of moving to Cedar, my only advice would be to MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A JOB FIRST! I mean, I don't have one, and the only one James could find was swing shift at a sausage manufacturer. So yeah... Cedar City=Dead End.

Oh, one more thing. I told you I would put up pictures of our new table, but really you only need one, so here it is!

James' mom, Carla, made us the place mats and napkins as a wedding present. Overall, I really like the way it looks. I made the napkin rings and pleated the napkins myself. I got the idea from Davis and Becca's wedding luncheon.

An update

To last night's post. Let me just say that my husband is AMAZING! He got home, I asked him to take pictures from the internet and make a banner for the blog... and he did!! I think it turned out pretty great. I'm glad he knows his photoshop. Then he finished the dining table chairs, so our house finally feels like a home (having a designated place to eat can do that). Man, I'm lucky.

Way Too Much Time

Let me just start off by saying that to set up this blog to look even half way descent took way too long. I need someone to teach me the tricks to a cute one. So, James' mom, Carla, found us a really beautiful glass top table and 4 chairs for only $50. The chairs were a little worn, but other than that... PERFECT!!! We finally have a place to serve dinner. So, what my brilliant (and maybe possessing a little too good of an interior design eye) husband suggests, is that we re-upholster the seat cushions red, paint the legs black, and keep the backs black. So that's what we've been doing with our spare time. Taking out staples, sewing cushion covers, spray painting chair legs, and stapling on new cushions. Needless to say, it looks amazing! I'm so glad I have such a handy husband who cares about aesthetics. I don't have pictures right now,(only one chair is completely done) but I will put some up soon so you all can see!!!
Well, I guess that's the end for now. James gets off work soon, so I should probably finish up the laundry and get everything ready for finishing the chairs. I'm SO excited!!!

The start of something great!

Well, everyone seems to be on the blogging train, so I thought I would hop on too! I always enjoy reading all of your blogs and keep thinking that I should start my own. I just haven't done it yet... until now!!! So, let's start with the basics. This blog will inform all those who want to know about mine and James' lives. You'll be able to read about our achievements, our losses, our fun times, and especially the random happenings that don't really matter but make us laugh until our stomachs hurt. There will be photos, of course, because photos just make a blog more fun to read. You'll just have to learn how to follow my stream of consciousness. I ramble and I jump subjects, but hey! It just makes me that much more interesting to read : ) So get ready everyone cause, starting tomorrow, you get to read all about my life!!!! (Be excited)
