We got it!!!

I've been doing the happy dance ever since!! Lovely house, Lovely neighborhood, lovely neighbors! Everything I've dreamed of is coming true; wonderful loving man, a place we can call home, and the future that God has planned for us stretched out before us.
I am loved by a Good God!

Another Day Another Bid

So Schmoop and I went to look at houses again today. We went to early service at church then headed out to Pennsauken. Today was so much better than the last time, I have no clue what happened last time. It really seemed like all the houses we looked at before were designed by a crack addict. Just a little insight, the one house had a stairway leading to nothing in the kitchen. Literally behind the stove were like 7 steps that lead nowhere... This time was better (one would hope right?!) we saw some affordable houses in some nice neighborhoods. We started heading home and decided to check out a house thats behind Schmoops twin brother's house. Long story short we put a bid in on it tonight. So below could be the future Casa de Schmoop.

WI today

Soooooo, I kind of fell hard off the wagon for a few weeks.
I gained some, in the past week I gained 1.5 lbs.
We've been looking for houses, and starting new jobs, still moving (forever moving).
I'm forcefully making myself slow down and take everything one step at a time, including this whole weight watcher thing. The new incredible job I have has a huge closet full of all sorts of CHOCOLATE (granola bars, candy, and cookies) but I'm going to stay out of that area at all costs this week!
Things are going good though, even if I'm getting frustrated in the whole house front. The house that we put the bid in on already had a better bid on hand.
Sooo with the forceful slowdown, I'm hoping that my writing skills increase by like 1,000. I will be updating more, and I'm also on myspace if you want to look and try to find me :)

Holy Cow

We just put a bid on this house... commence chewing on nails.
It's really hard to believe that I'm old enough to own a house. Honestly, although I know that I am an adult, I frequently view myself as the teenager I used to be. I'm excited though, to own a house, to start a life with the man I love, to be an adult(as long as I'm allowed to be an immiture one anyway!). So all prayers would be appreciated, and if anyone wants to throw a couple hundred thousand Schmoop's and my way we would appreciate it!

Step right up!!!!!!

So Schmoop and I have never been to the circus. I know!!! I couldn't believe it either. The situation had to be remedied. Steps were taken, results were obtained, and now the problem has been solved.
We both were extremely excited to go and see the show!

when we stepped up to the tent

I almost peed my pants

One of my favorite parts was the lady in a tutu walking the tightrope
(Schmoop swears its a man, which just makes it better!)

In summation, I LOVE THE CIRCUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fell of the Wagon

So I'm using the no weigh in pass this week. Its been 5 months on WW, and this is the first time I'm using it so its cool. I'm back on the wagon after a week of craziness. Did not even look at the scale but I will next week. Started putting in my points online again this morning so we shall see how things go. Schmoop and I both had good-bye parties at work so there were alot of reasons to quit, as well as the celebration schmorgashboard that we made for his return. Its been a wonderful week knowing that he's back in NJ for good!! We went to look at houses in PA yesterday, still on the fence as to where we're going to live. We shall see!!!

So exciting though, we are both starting new jobs on Monday!

Buy me something

its fun! :)
I've made it easy check out my wishlist ->

Today was my last day at the mortgage company, suprisingly bittersweet. No, I never really did see myself staying there forever but I have been there 5 years. I thought it would be easy walking out the door, but I think I will really miss the people I used to work with. I had some good times, like when Schmoop first proposed to me with a sculpture made out of a paper clip! When I made my Tom Jones shrine on my desk, and Buker would do the dance in the aisle. Meeting some amazing forever friends, some of them who I've taken fantastic trips to Vegas and Europe. Meeting the man of my dreams. Taking walks with Papa K when he worked with me. Five years of silliness.
