And this is why

And this is why our week was a lot more eventful than we planned :)

Tuesday night there were some crazy strong wind here in Minnesota, as well as in Wisconsin. Ryan was working, and Joshua and I were just dropped off at Ryan's parents for the night. We were all in the living room hanging out, when the whole house went black. This was at about 7:30... I was getting ready to give Joshua a bath. Needless to say Joshua did not get a bath Tuesday night! We went to bed early hoping to have power in the morning. We woke up to a freezing house and a fridge full of warm, thawed out food on Wednesday morning. We went and got some ice to stick in the fridge with the hopes and saving any cold that was left in there. We went to my parents to wait for power, and ended up spending the night Wednesday night. We were so surprised the power wasn't back on when we woke up Thursday!

Thursday we took a mini road-trip to Wisconsin (Next Post) so Joshua could meet his great grandma and grandpa Strickland for the first time. He was so good for the 2 hour drive there and 2 hour drive back. He slept a little more than an hour each way and was nice and happy the rest of the time :) When we were on our way back Thursday evening around 7 we got the call that the power was back on! YIPPEEE!! We have power!!

I hope everyone had a great week, our weekend is just ending, Ryan had Thursday and Friday off. And sadly Ryan has to work on Joshers first Halloween and won't be trick or treating with us :( But we will take many, many pictures for Daddy! (And Yoooou!!) so enjoy your weekend blogger friends, and wish us luck as we head into our Monday. Love Love ♥

Another possibility...

We have found a house that I have absolutely fallen in love with. I know I shouldn't have, I know that's the first rule when you are house hunting. But I failed. I LOVE THIS HOUSE. Here's the thing... We didn't get approved for as much as we thought we would, and unless we could come up with $10,000-$15,000 this house more than likely isn't even a possibility. Its possible right? I can dream!

It doesn't look amazing from the outside, but it is pretty updated and would be perfect for our little family. So if you feel like donating to my cause feel free (haha right?)

Well I hope everyone is having a good week so far :) We have had an interesting one for sure... I will write about that tomorrow! Let's just say that little windstorm we had Tuesday is STILL affecting us. Wanna know why? Come back tomorrow! Have a great Friday Friends!! Love Love ♥

We are looking at our first house! eek!

Tomorrow at noon we will be having our first showing of a house, we have seen a few of them that we like. But this is the first one that the Realtor has actually gotten back to us on and has set up a time! I am excited to actually get to go check it out, how awesome would it be if this one worked out for us? It is a cute little townhouse, we have some friends that live in the same neighborhood actually so that would be kinda fun :)

I'm assuming because it is so cheap it will need a little work, but that will be a lot of fun! We can make it our own home and add our own style. I am super excited if you can't tell :D

I hope everyone is having a great Wednesday! Wish us luck on our house hunt. Love love ♥

Fall is here! I think....

We have been having the most amazing weather this fall!! It is October. In Minnesota. Today was the first day in the last 5 days it did not reach 80 degrees!! Seriously! I am LOVING being able to be outside with my babycakes. We have been playing in the leaves, in shorts and t-shirts! How crazy is that? In Minnesota. In October.

Here is one of my favorite pictures that I snapped today when we were enjoying some time in the leaves.

But the cold weather is coming... Monday it is supposed to be colder. I am NOT looking forward to it. I know Joshua doesn't like cold weather either, so that could make for a loooong winter!

I hope everyone is having a great week so far! Only a couple more days until the weekend. Well Ryan's weekend is today and tomorrow :) Have a great night blogger friends. Love Love ♥

The search has begun... well not officially :)

So we've been discussing what we want to do next. Obviously right now we are just saving up money and know that this is not how our lives are going to be forever. But yesterday we looked into a few things and realize that we could easily qualify for a loan, so we have been starting to look at some houses! I am so excited, thinking about being on our own again, in our own house! I know it won't happen right away, it will be a long process of finding the house that is perfect for us and then making offers and all that entails with buying a house. I know it is a long process, but the process has started and that just excites me to no end!

Sorry I have not been on here a whole lot lately, our computer has been going really slow and Ryan's parents computer is always being used :) Hopefully I will be on more regular again here, even if it is just a short littler update. I hope everyone is having a great week so far. Happy Tuesday! Love Love ♥
