wow...

It is so amazing to be living in my own place. This is so exciting! Chris ans I have been together for close to 3 years and we are so exciting to finally have our own place together! I feel almost like Martha Stewart in the sense that I really like the iea of running my own household and making my own rules and cleaning and cooking and decorating. Things that until recently I had no desire to do any of. I also has made me super aware of everything we do. I make sure all lights are off. If im not in the room, they are off. We shut our computers off at night. We are making sure we pack a lunch because we can't be buying food all the time. I have really begun to appreciate all of the things I have. We have more money than we did before, but we certainly do not have a lot of money. Usually I would be freaking out about not having any money... actually I was freaking out. However, I have realized that we will be ok. We just have to be smarter about what we do and be more careful about what we spend on. I am actually totally ok with just making it. We have to start somewhere don't we?

Here's to jumping into the being pool of "real life" feet first!

This is your first place together alone ever? Its am amazing feeling!. Good luck and I am glad you are enjoying it. I moved back in with family so that I could concentrate on school. But it added more stress. So after 11 months we are moving back out and I can't wait! I miss my stuff and I miss decorating too! Now if only I can get my kids and husband to turn the lights out when they aren't in a room! LOL
