Twenty-Two

Twenty-Two use to be my favorite number when I was little, I use to think I would never be that old and now that I am I don't feel old at all. I actually still feel like a little kid.

My Birthday was so much fun, I had to work; which seems like kinda a drag, but I like my job. And after work I had dinner with my family at my favorite restaurant in NM. The best part was walking in and Carter running up to me yelling "Happy Birthday Piggies! Happy Birthday!" and then he gave me THREE kisses on the lips. Jenny told me that she had been practicing that with him all day. He loves to say happy birthday but always says 'happy birthday Carter' because he doesn't really understand that it isn't his birthday.

After dinner Jed and I went to the mall where I bought anything and everything I wanted. Seriously it was a girls dream come true. Jed was such a good sport while I tried on outfit after outfit asking 'how does this look' and 'which do you like more?' Jed also carried all the bags, which made me feel somewhat uncomfortable and look extremely lazy, but he wouldn't let me help. So I was basically on a shopping spree with my own personal servant following me around paying and carrying everything!

Then we went to my parents house where my sister had made these delicious cupcakes in a ice cream cone and where I listen to Carter sing Happy Birthday to me/himself singing 'happy birthday dear.. Carter!' and blew out my candle.

The day was perfect.

 So I haven't blogged in forever, primarily because I feel like the people I use to blog for I now see everyday... so whats the use? But I decided that I like blogging because I enjoy it... so I guess I will!

I love being home. It has been so great being back around family and playing with Carter each day! It is so cute Carter calls me "Piggies" and Jed "Shed" or "Sh*t" depending on how he pronounces it. He loves taking pictures, but hasn't quite learned how to smile for the camera. Angie and I took about 100 snapshots on photobucket and this is the best we could come up with...

Jed and I started a new little hobby last semester right after we got married of refinishing old used furniture. It started out with very small projects to compliment our tiny tiny apartment back up in Idaho, and then when we moved to NM we started bigger ones to fill up our new condo that is enormous to us. Surprisingly we filled it up quite quickly with great finds from local thrift stores and our favorite Craigslist, but I love to shop and I love it even more if I can get a good deal on something so I kept buying furniture. Jed and I decided that this will be a hobby that we would keep and just re-sale the new used redone furniture. Since we have started we sold enough and made enough profit to buy this baby!

I am so excited! I have wanted a nice camera for a long time now. I have no idea how to use it, but am excited to learn. I wanted something to capture all the great things that Jed and I get to do, and all the adorable pictures I can get of Carter is a plus too!
