We got the house!

I am so excited for this new step in our lives. OUR first home together - sure we lived together in the townhouse, but B bought that place before we ever started dating - so this is OUR first house and I am so excited!

New home? Maybe?!

I know I have said it countless times - that I want to post more often - however our life is very boring (in a wonderful way)!

We hopefully will be moving soon - to a beautiful little home closer to town. At first we were looking at other townhomes and other parts of town until we found this house:

I fell in love and so did B. So we currently are in negotiations and hopefully one day it will be ours! Then I may have new things to write about!

One year

One year ago today I became a wife.

One year ago today we pledged forever.

One year ago today I thought I was at the peak of love - only to know love grows more and more each day.

In one year we have been to so many places, seen so many things and spent 365 days as husband and wife.

I cannot believe it has a been a year. What an amazing year with the perfect beginning. I didn't know what this first year had in store for us, but I did know whatever it was, we would tackle it together. Thank you for truly being a wonderful husband full of love, joy and laughter. We have made it a year and have forever to go.
Forever is a long time, but I wouldn't want to do forever with anyone else.

 I thought I loved you the day we married and I have fallen more in love with you everyday. I love you.

For the last 6 months I have been doing my own version - 33 clothing items and using all the accessories I want. Well come April 1 I am going to attempt the entire Project 333.
These are the items representing what I will be wearing - some are the exact items and some are just variations or similar to what I own. The +1 designates that I am still going through my closet at the moment to figure out what 5 other items I want to include. I may include my suit jacket and slacks as I may need them for work during that time.
Have you heard of project 333?

Failing on blogging

I have been failing so much on blogging these days - and I really don't know why.

Life has been great - kinda boring - but I like boring. I don't like drama, I don't like outlandish - I just like my life the way it is with the people I care about.

B and I are planning a getaway for sometime in the upcoming months to go to Utah - remember he is a Geologist and loves rocks - I love to be outdoors - so it seems like a great place for us.

Plus the last few years we have been doing a lot of fun (and expensive) traveling - London, Thailand, Cuba, Bahamas and other trips in between - so this year we are being low key (well sort of!).

I'm excited about having time with nature. I'm excited about having a good time and I am exciting about being together in a secluded place.

Valentines Day

B whisked me away to Fredericksburg this past weekend as a Valentine's Day treat. It was GLORIOUS.

We stayed in a beautiful cottage.

It had it own living room, bathroom and bedroom - different from your "typical" bed and breakfast - as it was our little cottage all to ourselves.

It was a romantic getaway which consisted of relaxing, hiking up Enchanted Rock - going to a few wineries, walking the main street and just being together.
I loved it.
The view from the top of the Rock was amazing:
What a wonderful weekend with my wonderful husband.

Green Juice/ Green Smoothies

This past weekend B and I used some of our William Sonoma gift cards for a new Vita-mix.  I have a love obsession with this tool. (Don't call it a blender otherwise I will tell you all of the things that it does!)

So- I have wanted a Vitamix for over 2 years. If you google them - you will know why I never bought one before now - the price. This kitchen tool is EASILY the most expensive one item I have in my kitchen (and I have a Kitchen-Aid and All Clad pots and pans- of which I adore and think they were 1000000% worth their prices!)

So for 2 years B had to endure watching QVC Vitamix shows (so much so that he actually put a parental lock on anything "Vitamix" on our cable box), he saw me always go to them at Williams Sonoma, and he saw me pet them in Costco/Sams.  So yes- I have been wanting one badly.

We were in the Hill Country this weekend for a Valentine's Day getaway - which was amazing, and wonderful to just get away from it all (post up next!) and we went to the outlets on our way home. As we were leaving the Williams Sonoma outlet - B saw a Vitamix box - and I went into absolute panic- "did that lady get the last one" "where is that" "where did she find it" AHHHH- and B found them.

So now on my kitchen counter I am the proud owner of a Vitamix.

We bought it yesterday and so far I have made 3 things - tomato basil soup, salsa and a green juice this morning. I will get my "cost per use down quickly!!"
So now I need help- does anyone have green juice recipes, soup recipes or anything to make with this? I want to incorporate more veggies and fruits into my diet!
