Because I am tired of the threats...

So they aren't the best photos, but I posted them anyways. I think this is Jack. Cullen wasn't too excited about me taking his photo. Both boys have been pretty sick, so they were a bit on the moody side at times. But they both did great!

And there is Cullen, not looking to well. His eyes just look so sad. But he was a trooper.

Is that tie not to die for? They looked so darn hansom!
How do you resist that smile?

So Cullen really wasn't as into the pictures of videos. But I posted this anyways so you could see him. Jack on the other hand (as you can see from the first video) was a chatter box.

I hope you enjoy!

Today is not my day. For the life of me I can not figure out why my writing is underlined, and how to undo it. So you get to read a really dramatic looking post today.

Here it is. Yesterday my wonderful boyfriend helped me move this up the stairs (I am still a bit amazed we did it). His parents are loaning it to me for a while. It has all of my books and DVDs and games in it. I love the way it looks! And now when my nephews are in town they won't be getting in trouble for playing with my books.

I think the whole room looks so much more complete. I love it!

So, after all the heavy lifting (although Brian did the majority), decided to end my night with a bowl of this. I have never loved an ice cream more. I finished it last night and I foresee an Albertson's run in my future tonight! I mean really, it is delicious!

And of course a cup of tea. Brian went a little crazy this weekend at the store and bought some great new teas for us to try. He is trying to not drink so much coffee, and well, I am pretty sure it runs in my blood thanks to my mother.
I am sooo my mother's daughter! I have a whole drawer devoted to teas. In case you can't read them, there are two I want to point out.
In the upper right corner is what we call "tension tamer." And the bottom right corner is "sleepy time" I now drink a cup of sleepy time every night before bed and I am out really quickly. It is wonderful. And well the tension tamer speaks for itself.

And here are a few final photos of my apartment I finally got around to hanging some stuff on the walls. This is over the dining room table. It is a mirror on the right and two photos I made on the left.

My bulletin board that is hiding behind my door.

And finally, my biggest project, all the photos above my bed. They aren't perfect (or straight), but I hung them up. And as Anna said, "now it is starting to look like someone lives there."

I love my apartment more and more every day. Well, every time I accomplish a task mainly. But none-the-less, I have been making progress and I can not wait for Kim and the boys to come and stay with me!

Plates, plates and more plates!

Here you go Katie, the pictures I have been promising for like a week.

So these are the two new big plates that I found. I love the one on the right. I think it might be my new favorite!

Don't mind the messy kitchen in the background.

This is the one "bowl-ish" thing that I found. Although I would like to see someone use it as a bowl. But it is still pretty and good for a dip or something.

The so called "bowl" is on the left. The one on the right is a new salad plate. Or bread plate. Not sure the difference, just smaller than the big plates!

And the other 3 smaller plates.

I really love all of the plates I got this time around. They all are so different and have so much character. I always wonder about the people who bought them originally.

And these are my new platters from my Grandma Ann and Papa Dennis. I absolutely love them. This weekend is my house-warming party, and I can not wait to use them. They will be so much more convenient than trying to fit everything onto a plate!

Thank you again Grandma Ann and Papa Dennis!

I am still in love with this idea in case you couldn't tell! I have decided Mondays are the best day to go to the Goodwill. They mark different colored tags down on different days, and so far Mondays are the best for me. I missed yesterday because I was skyping with my sister and the boys (which I wouldn't change for anything), so maybe next week I will get there!
