Wedded Bliss

Chad and I have been married almost 5 months and I can't believe how fast the time has gone! Since we've left Dallas, we moved into a nice sized ( for a one bedroom apartment ) in Tomball off of 249.It has grown so much since I graduated high school and there's a ton of restaurants and a really great HEB that we love. We've definitely made a nice little start here, and some great friends! Although, I am endlessly complaining about the need to decorate our apartment more. I had no idea how expensive marriage was! Chad is doing amazing at Malin and he is loving his job. I am loving the fact that he doesn't have to work weekends and is home at a decent time every night. I have been waitressing at PF Chang's for the past month to make some extra cash and I really like everyone I work with and most of the customers ;) I also like the short hours. I am looking forward to the day I no longer am working weekends, which won't be too much longer. I know I should be thankful for all we have and that I have an amazing husband and family, but for some reason I am just feeling oh so poor lately. I really need a new car, poor Jenna the Jetta has been with me since before I turned 16 and she turned 10 this year! The other day I was driving to work running late in the pooring rain and I looked up and saw RAIN coming in from the vanity light in the passenger seat! And the check engine light keeps going on and off. I don't think she'll last much longer.

As far as our apartment goes, we STILL have not put up curtains and there are so many things I wanted to do to make our home nice. But we are trying to be good and pay off all our bills and then we can have some extra cash for shopping. I know we are just starting out and these things take time, but I am just impatient. I am so excited to have our own house and get on our feet. I know one day I will look back fondly on our first few months of being married and miss this time, I just need to be thankful for all we have!

Houston Rodeo

Last night we went to the Rodeo and saw Brad Paisley with our good friends Sean and Erica Green. We had a blast and Brad definitely put on a good show for us. Unfortunatley, we forgot our cameras so we only have cell phone pics of the night but we had a blast. Chad and I spent about 30 bucks on 3 beers which makes me cringe but it was fun and we did get to be on the megatron!
Chad and I are off to the rodeo again to see Darius Rucker I was so excited to be back in Houston this year and really wanted to go the Rodeo. I was worried we wouldn't get to go if we didn't get tickets but Chad assured me someone would invite us. Luckily for me, my husband was right! We've been invited 4 times! Tonight we will remeber to bring our camera and since it's nice hopefully we can ride the rides, which is my favorite part.
