Who Won That Game?

Sunday Mathew wanted to get out of Rexburg and go visit Idaho Falls. Part of his reasoning was so he we could avoid just sitting around our apartment and the other part was that he wanted to see my kitty's wound. Yes, Shadow got wounded. He has been limping around and Saturday night I found blood on his leg. :( So we went to Idaho Falls and Shadow was no where to be found. I was very worried and Mathew was sad he couldn't see the battle wound. Don't worry, Shadow came home about a half hour after we left that night...little stinker.

While we were in Idaho Falls, we decided to play some games! I went in my old room and found my New Moon board game that I got for Christmas almost two years ago. No one has every played it with me...and I don't blame them. I'm pretty much past the Twilight obsession but I confess, I have always felt incomplete because that game has been sitting in my closet for so long unplayed. Well, my mom and Mathew agreed to play with me, and I was so excited to finally fill my void. We started playing and quickly realized that this was going to be a pretty weird/lame game. We managed to finish though and guess who won......MATHEW! He has only seen the movie once and he managed to win the New Moon board game. I will never let him live that down...especially since he was so excited and proud to be named winner. Okay maybe not proud, but he definitely showed some excitement after he won.

Basically game night was fun...even if I did lose the New Moon game to my husband. :)

I have been inspired to remake some of my old clothes. I'm so tired of my wardrobe right now and I have so many dresses that are too short to wear now. :( So, I'm going to remake them! I'm super psyched and spent forever at the fabric store today getting little things that I'll need. I'll try to post before and after pictures of everything just in case anyone is interested. :)

We're Moving!

We are escaping from Rexburg for a semester! Yay! We are moving to Blackfoot (so far I know) in August for Mathew to work. I will also be working for one of the months at the beet dump. For those of you who don't know, the beet dump is where farmers drop off their insanely large amounts of beets. I don't know exactly what I'll be doing, but it's going to be an adventure! Definitely a change from JCP.

I'm super excited to move. I'm going to be a stay at home wife for most of the time. I don't know how I'm going to fill my days but part of it will be with working out. I am so happy that I will finally have time to exercise! Other than that, I'll probably try and be crafty or something. I hope I don't go loopy.

So it's been quite an ordeal to find a place to live. Blackfoot is definitely not like Rexburg, you can't just sign for five months at any old place. They all want year long leases and they don't want to make exceptions. I checked craigslist daily for like a month and a half but nothing was working out. Finally, Mathew's mom found out about this family who rents out an apartment above their garage for a month-to-month lease. It's perfect! We went and looked at it yesterday and it's so cute. Small, but cute and clean! I'm so happy we finally found something. Prayers are definitely answered. Anyways, that's about it. If anyone has any ideas of things I can do to keep busy while Mathew is at work, I'd love to hear them. Thanks :)
