    Here's a GOOD NEWS update- my FH and I went to look at a couple more houses last night and we put an offer on one. It's a small house but it will suit us just fine.

    Afternoon all! Well, we decided not to get the house from my FH boss seeing how the price got raised up out of our price range. We do have our sights set on a house not far from our current residence so let's hope we hear something soon. Right now the wedding plans are on hold due to my divorce...

    How's your weather?

    Hey all! I sure miss talking about the weather. My temp here is around 85° today and for the past week or so it's been in the high 90s with a humidity feeling of over 100. Yuck 🤢😞 Can't wait for it to get closer to fall so it will cool down some but it really doesn't get very cold here.

    Hey everyone! It's been awhile. Yes, I did go check out the venue and OMG I feel in love with it, it was so pretty! It is pretty cheap too $400 for 2 days but the only thing they are going to have open next year is the cabins and they aren't cheap plus you got to rent them for a week at...

    Oatmeal / Porridge

    when I eat oatmeal I like to add brown sugar, butter and a little cinnamon but when I eat grits I only add butter and maple syrup I know I know that's weird but that's how I like my grits. When I eat cornmeal (yup, cornmeal!) I make it like I normally would but I put it in a small metal can (...

    Plus the wedding favors will be cute but cheap. I'm going to take a circle of wood attach a homemade candle to it then burn our names and date into. I might even spice the wood up by adding a small piece of ribbon and a flower or two. To really cut down on expenses (cost) I'm going to make my...
