enjoying life

I've really been starting to feel at home now. I still miss my family (mom, dad and little sister) a lot, but I try to call them a few times a week to keep in touch.

So far I am really enjoying my job, and my new coworkers. It's not the same as my old store, but I am starting to get more comfortable. The customers here are a LOT nicer than the ones at my old store, that is for certain. It's that "Southern Hospitality" I always heard about, I'm sure!

This is one of my favorite little places to get lunch, and it's right around the corner from our apartment. They have yummy onion rings and awesome milkshakes... horrible for your waistline and nourishing for the soul!

Cade looooves video games. Sometimes I think maybe a little too much, but I have been trying to get a little more into them so we can play together. It's the least I can do, after forcing him to sit through the never ending episodes of 16 and Pregnant, Forensic Files and American Idol... what can I say? I love watching tv! We have been playing Gears of War, and I'm getting pretty good at it. The game actually kind of scares me sometimes!!!

Cade doesn't even mind when I make fun of him wearing his little headset and call him a nerd!

Cade's best friend Aaron came over this week and we all played World of Warcraft together. Now that is a videogame that I like! We are so close to reaching level 80 on our characters, and we can't wait until the new expansion, Cataclysm comes out.

Here are all of our computers, fired up and ready to play!

I have been dying to get a puppy for months and months now, and I think we are really close to getting one. I've gotten in touch with a breeder not too far away in Texas, and she has my little dream puppy-- he's a "blue" chihuahua. I have to talk to Cade tonight about it, but if he's okay with everything, I'm going to make my deposit. The puppy was just born in the end of February, so he won't be ready to come home until the middle of April, so that gives us plenty of time to save up some more money and to gather some puppy things... (I won't lie... maybe I already started buying puppy things... 5 MONTHS ago! Yeah, I already have toys for a puppy I don't even own yet!)

If all goes according to plan, in just a few weeks that little cutie above will be mine, all mine :) I need help choosing a name for him!! Anyone have any good ideas?


  1. aww i hope everything works out with your new puppy :) i was thinking of getting a chihuahua once but ended up with my pug! you have a super cute blog so i stole your button and put it up on mine :)

  2. He is so cute!! I always wanted a chihuahua to name Batman, I don't know why, I just think it would be so funny. If he is blue you could name him Smurf, lol. I make fun of my hubby for the headset thing too, you are a much better girl then I though! I can't stand video games, I just sit quietly and crochet beside him! I am so happy you are getting more comfortable in your new place, makes it easier to be away from family! <3 Sonja

  3. awwww puppy!!! so cute! :]
    and ohmygosh I am such a video game nerd. like, uber nerd. seriously.

  4. oh you're a WOW girl!! AWESOME! those pics of you guys are super adorable and I hope you get the cute lil puppy as well <3

  5. Oh how cute! My husband looooves video games. He convinced me to buy an xbox so I could play with him! I barely do, I just use it for netflix. (waste of money?!) We are a lot alike.. and I've only read one post! I do plan on reading more... ;) We have a blue chihuahua! He is crazy and doesn't act or look like a normal chihuahua but I am so in love with him it's not even funny. I bought stuff for Mowgli years before I got him. I waned a chihuahua so badly. Your blog is so cute! I can't wait to read more!
    Emilie, I'm so glad to have met you! We can be blog friends.

  6. so..i totally wish I could live somewhere with southern hospitality :(

    I love 16 and pregnant! lol

    and oMG!! WOW!! Best game ever!!
    What server are you on?

    How does your internet handle all 3 at one time? Ours can barely handle my husband and I. especially if we're both in Dalaran!
