If that doesn't get your attention then I don't know what will. If you live in Jamestown and like the Ecklof's Bakery Pink Stripe Cookies, you will either get a coupon to print out, or if you have an smart phone that lets you check into places, "like" them and "check in" there then you get a free dozen cookies. Yeah, pretty great. Ends Thursday!

So I decided tonight that I would try to make some cake balls that I saw on this website. I got carrot cake and cream cheese frosting then some white chocolate to dip them in. I dyed the chocolate orange and crushed up walnuts. Yeah. They started out good. Making the cake was easy, then adding the frosting and rolling them into little balls. One recipe I looked at said to then freeze them for 20 minutes, the other said several hours. Of course being ADD I wanted instant results and opted for the 20 minute freeze. Bad idea. The weren't cold enough and looked like I was rolling meatballs in chocolate. Not Pretty. I suggest to anyone making these so called balls, go for the several hour freeze.

blog I ran across this awesome store and had to buy a couple of things for the new place. Like these above. I think tomorrow I will be inspired to make something home*made. Something sweet and perhaps...cake ball esque. We will see.

Lame. Sorry. But I am so very excited that We Finally picked and ordered a couch!! We looked everywhere for it, and after a lot of sitting, thinking, imagining, and driving , we finally on this. From here. Let me just tell you how happy we were, and how awesome we were treated when we went into this store. I know this sounds super lame, but we really felt like we were family members who walked in to buy something. Matt, the one who sold it to us, was nice and gave us a super awesome deal which we totally appreciated. So because of the awesome service we got, we decided to stay local. So if you live in town and are looking for furniture, go here the prices and service are awesome! Now I can start writing about interesting things that people care about instead of where im going to sit my ass.

Today we went to an awesome place in Jamestown because I had one of those discount cards that give you a certain percent off at different restaurants. So we went to the Coffee Cup on second street. I had been there once before in high school, but since then it has been taken over by new owners. So we figured we would give it a try. I ordered the Stuffed cake. This little piece of heaven is 2 really big pancakes, stuffed with fresh raspberries. And a side of 4 pieces of perfect bacon. I am kinda a bacon fan so I jumped at that. It was great!! If you live in Jtown or come to visit...go there.

So Chad and I have an amazing opportunity from a wonderful friend I work with to rent a really cute house. We have been struggling for a year living in two different houses, at home with our parents. Both of our family's are amazing, wonderful people who have given us both the opportunity to live at home rent free. Because of their awesomeness we have both been able to pay down majority , if not all of our debt. Thanks Parents! We are ready though, to have our own place. The problem has been that in our little town it costs more to rent a house then it would to have a mortgage. Our plans are to NOT stay in this area, so it would be stupid to try and buy a house. But with a few prayers, some money crunching and a very giving friend, we are hopefully ready to move into our first place together. So when I get out of school today we are heading up to the house one more time to look at it during the day and make a final decision. I'm really excited! Keep your fingers crossed!!!!
