not having internet hooked up yet makes it really difficult to blog as often as i want. which would explain the lack of posts or general online presence. so to quickly update a little of what's been going on, here i am, at panera bread, using their wifi.
the house is still a mess, but coming a long nicely. i even have a little porch owl. (thanks, mom)
and pumpkins. it's like a legit porch.

and new pillows (thanks, mom. again.).
we've basically just been trying to get organized in our new place. kyle works all day, and i stay home/run errands/clean/cook while he's gone. i've turned into a housewife overnight. hopefully i find work soon. i love being at home, but i'm not trying to be bree van de kamp. so this weekend, since we worked pretty hard on saturday, we didn't do much around the house on sunday.
we spent our first real weekend day doing what you should be doing on the weekends -- whatever the heck you want. sunday morning was spent watching seinfeld, eating cereal and drinking coffee out of christmas mugs.
then we cleaned just a little bit and then left to go for brunch. we found this great little place to eat called The Creamery. kyle says it might be our answer to not having a jim's in knoxville. no spaghetti or SMILE placemats, but a similar feel to the place. we had a great sunday brunch, and if not for our other busy plans for the rest of that day, i'm certain i would have promptly entered a carb coma. oh well. on to the next one.

then we came to panera to use the internet (naturally), and after that, went to a movie. there's was a little mishap with the internet time and the actual time the movie was supposed to play. apparently daylight savings time doesn't apply to google. so we missed the first showing, but walked around this weird mall for an hour to wait for the next one, and kyle bought us some very comfortable/slightly too expensive sweatpants from hollister. we saw "sarah's key." omg. so sad. i won't even talk about it. just look it up if you're curious.
we had also planned to start trying churches to see if we can find one we like. the one we had planned to go to was having their thanksgiving dinner, though. two new people. first time they've ever been here. they just wanted free food. we didn't want to be those people, so we decided to wait until next week.
then after the movie, we used a gift card i had and enjoyed a free dinner, walked around target and looked at christmas decorations and lamps, and i bought us some peppermint mocha coffee creamer. it's no starbucks, but delicious nonetheless. and i'm sure you can see where this is going...
skinny sweatpants that smell like cologne. christmas mugs. coffee. seinfeld. couch. perfect end to a close to perfect day.
along with overpriced fleece, we also bought the new florence+the machine album and miranda lambert album. i'll probably post more about these later, but just trust me. they're both incredible.
in other news, the most handsome man is living with me.
keep us in your prayers and good thoughts.
