w w - feet


I hate feet...
I can not stand them...
I can go on and on about them..

So, why do I have a picture of a foot on here?
Because when I looked at my brothers foot....
I realized HOW LONGGGGGGGGGGG his toes are.
Seriously!
They are so long...
I told him he could probably pick up bricks with those suckers and lay a house...
UGH......

Save Your World - Winner

I know I have been totally slacking lately, but seriously, with everything movingsofast and not even because of procrastination...
I just wanted to announce the winner of the Save Your World soap and lotion...

Thanks to Random.org:
Comment Number 23 was the winner!

Christie!
I have sent you an email.

Thanks all!!!!!!!!!

I miss you all

I feel like I have not been on here in AGES!
I also feel like I have not visited any of you in forever as well.

Let me tell you what has been going on...
Last week we got the call for Marc to report for a retraining period so that he could return to work. Well, we wanted to be closer to where he works, so while he went to class, Broxton and I looked for something a bit closer. Yes, we do want a house, but for now... An apartment seems like the logical thing to do... So, apartment looking is what we did!
We saw a few online that were SUPER CUTE... but, once we saw them in person... The layout, the location, the residents, the upkeep...
WE SAID, NOPE!!!!
So, off we headed to PROMOVE apartment locator's...
Not sure if you have ever heard of them, but I used them when I first moved to Atlanta over 10 years ago, so I knew how they worked...
We went in and talked to a guy named John... He pulled up a good amount of places that fit what we were looking for... We narrowed it down to 5 or 6 and off we went to see...
There was one that we saw online that still had our attention, so we did not need to go back there yet.
Marc went to work and I went to look...
Once again, some were in the "no go" pile at first glance...
Run down, cluttered porches, not the safest feel of neighborhoods...
BUT, there were 2 that were cute, kinda a bit away from where we used to live, but they just might be worth the drive to visit everyone...
So, Marc and I loaded up.. The one we saw online, we went and did a walk through... SUPER CUTE! (but all they showed us was a 1 bedroom)
Then, the ones kinda out there...
First one, Marc did not like... 2nd one he did..
We were able to go look at the actual apartment of the first one that we had seen the one bedroom on an it wasn't really anything like the "model"one..
Back to that last one... We toured THE ONE we would be renting...
and you guessed it...
LOVE!!!!
We fell in love with it!
Super cute! The leasing agent was really nice...
Tons of things near us...

So...
We signed the lease on Saturday, loaded the Budget Rental Truck up (that is another post for you!) and then off to our new place...
We unloaded the next day because it was LATE and the very first piece of furniture was SO HEAVY!!!! So, now we are unloaded, but still living out of boxes...
We now have cable and Internet...
I FINALLY found the computer and got it all connected...
We went yesterday and got ceiling fans to go in the bedrooms...
We are slowly but surely getting there!
Oh yeah, did I tell you that I have SO MUCH STUFF that it didn't all fit?
Yep... I have to get the rest packed this week and we are moving it this weekend..
It is mostly boxes and a couple bookshelves :)

All we still need is :
Mail sorter (preferably one that hangs on the wall)
Key rack (another wall hanging,)
Two baskets for the linen closets to hold the dirty towels...
If you have any suggestions for inexpensive solutions, let me know!
:)
Hope all is well and I hope to get to visit you all in the next couple days!
