Sorry it has been a while, I have been super busy getting ready to move. Mike and I have FINALLY moved! We ended up with a wicked deal, where the peoples who house we were buying were buying ours as investment.

Our "old" house was a 2 bedroom bungalow that we lived in for 4 years! It was only like 700 square feet. Our "new" house now is a 4 bedroom 2 story home, with a finished basement, and we have tripled our house size compared to our old one!

The move went well, we are slowly settling in. Mike and I keep joking that we need 2 way radios to find each other, because we aren't used to this much space. The animals are settling in, in fact the cats keep getting lost. I can sit on my front porch and listen to the cows mooing in the pasture :)

I will post pics soon!

The night before we moved I was going down memory lane of our old house, I will miss that house, which is hard to believe, because for the last 6 months that we have waited to move, it felt as though it was getting smaller and smaller. I do miss the old house and all the memories, but I also look forward to the new memories this house is going hold. We are already having a blast!

It seems sooo surreal. That we bought our first house at the age of 20 and 21 and bought our 2nd house at 24 and 25. How blessed are we?

Just something to think about: What are some things in your life that you are thankful for or feel blessed for?

Mine would be: Mike, all my crazy animals (our family), our families, our house, our jobs and our happiness. Of course there is much more, but those are the ones that come to mind right away.

Life just keeps rolling, and it no longer feels like we are rolling backwards, I feel as though we are rolling in the right direction!

My Introduction

Thank You for checking out my blog! I figured that I may as well do some introductions of my family!! I have a loving husband name Mike. We got married on July 21st, 2007. We have known/dated each other for 9 years... seems sooo long! We bought a LITTLE tiny house, which we have lived in for 4 years!

We currently have 2 dogs, 2 cats and 1 aquarium.

Diamond (Golden Lab) is 12 years old. She is a wonderful dog, who unfortunately just keeps getting older and older :( We got her when she was 8 years old. We call her time with us her "retirement years". She has had a bit of a tough go at life before we got her.

Lily (Golden Reriever) is 1. She is an amazing dog! We got her when she was 7 weeks old! We met her when she was 5 weeks old. She had come a long way from a 10 pound puppy when we got her, to a whopping 85 pounds!! She was my replacement puppy, after I lost my Shih Tzu (Snoopy). Snoopy will be a post for another day.

Jazz is our grey cat. She is 4. We got her for a companion for Snoopy when we moved into our house. Snoopy wasn't too sure about her at first, but did love to lick her fur. We adopted Jazz from the SPCA, where I was currently volunteering. What a hard task it is to pick out just 1 cat!! Jazz won the vote between another grey kitten, because she bit Mike's ear. Apparently that meant that she had spunk, who knew that her attitude against Mike then, would still be a problem now!! In other words, she really is MY cat!!

Copper came to us just about a 1 year ago. This poor little guy has had a tough go at life. We found him at my in-laws farm. We don't know very much about him, but he wasn't in good shape when we got him. Copper has almost died on us 3 times now!! He weighed 4 pounds when we got him, as a fully grown male cat. (He now weighs 12 pounds) You could count every bone on this poor guy. The vet has told us 3 different things about him. First they said he was young, the second time he went (he was sick yet again), they said he was very old and this year when we went and he was healthy, he said he is around Jazz's age (4). This cat is CRAZY! He can open doors, get into things that you wouldn't think a cat could do!

Now that I have introduced my family, you will slowly get to know myself, without an explanation! Gotta keep ya coming back somehow!!
