Last weekend we went to an estate sale, and it was such a fun activity to do together. Plus these people's house was awesome; three stories with a hidden elevator. They ended up losing it because of the economy, so it was really sad and made me so thankful for the things we have and really made me hope that we never have to go through something like that.
Jared and I each fell in love with something there, and I am so spoiled because I got what I wanted, needless to say my thing was only $40 while Jared's was $850...I guess that explains why I got what I wanted. Anyway here is what I got.....
The table that it came with is pretty beat up, but it is totally awesome! It is kind of vintage and was made in the early 70's. It appears to be very durable and well made. I am sure it will last me longer than any new machine (that I could afford) would. *fingers crossed*
Oh yeah the thing Jared wanted was a pool table, which we might have gotten if we had a place for it. It had barely been used and came with all the accessories. Great deal!
Well I am excited to try my new and first sewing machine out tomorrow. I will be making curtains using this tutorial. Wish me luck!!!

It is so funny to think back to our 6 month anniversary. I was all sad because Jared hadn't done anything for our "6 month anniversary" and it WAS a big deal! At least it was to me and I am sure I made him feel like an awful husband. Now I look back and think of how petty I was being... needless to say after Jared learned that is WAS a big deal he went all out and made a big deal out of it. What a good husband to his crazy petty wife.

After our super fun summer back East, we (mostly me) had a awful time adjusting back to real life. I was offered my job back at US Welding, and Jared and I enrolled at UNR. At the time I felt so overhemed working part time and taking a class or two... BIGGEST regret ever....now that I am working full time and school full time. I REALLY wish I would have been taking like 5 or 6 classes when i was only working part-time. Heck, I would have been graduated by now...oh well i guess!
Anyways, this was our second apartment, a little less lavish then the first, but it was home and we were very thankful for it. Plus the location was amazing for going to classes, I sure miss walking across the street and being at school. Thank you April for finding it for us!!!
