being locked out cant bring me down!

sooooo guess what!


lol but really,  we got a house! this morning we had an apointment with the housing people to look at a house. we got all prepped up but at the same time remained calm. we didnt want to get our hopes up and it end up being ugly or in an area we didnt want - some of the houses are realllllllllly far away and i have my eye on some houses really close to the gym..... anyways, we get there and the lady tells us to follow her to the house. we start going and i quickly realize she is going in the opposite direction of the houses i want!
NNNNOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i had really hoped i could ride my (future) bike to the gym! she takes us into the neighorhood across from the base. (the ones i wanted were actually inside) all i can think is oh great... now i have to dig out my id every time i want in base...........jdfhgajdfbdsjcb
a turn here, a turn there, the houses in the neighborhood are a bit more varied; one story, two story, connected, singled. not house clones like the ones actually in the base. (the ones outside are still considered base housing though...weird) the houses look a little older too. i notice kid toys and playground stuff in a lot of the yards.....goodie, bring on the peer pressure, lol. then the lady parks. parellel parks! the parking sucks!!!!!!! she shows me to a more reasonable parking spot and then we are here. the building is like six houses stuck together (like townhouses) 4 two-story and a 1 story on each end. mMMMMm <--- like that. we go inside one of the middle ones.
HOLY COW!!!!!!!! the house is huge! the lady is blabing on about something while im trying to pick my jaw up off the floor..... giant living room attatched to i guess a dining area??? (perfect spot for a foosball table) twards the back is the kitchen and kitchen area. there is a mini back yard (perfect place to practice hooping or to stash a lil rat dog) and a shed for storage. passed the gate is easy to park covered parking for residence. back inside i catch lil things i missed at first, a mini bar area, all the cabinets, a half bath and coat closet under the stairs. go upstairs and the first thing you hit is the master bedroom. it has its own bathroom and is a decent size with 2 closets. down side is they are small. where the hell am i going to put all my clothes?! right across from the master is bedroom number 2. my office/dressing room/closet!!!!!!!! eeeeeekkkkkk!!!!!!! dreams really do come true! <3 go down the hall some more and you get the washer and dryer hookups! yeah we have to provide our own but still its worth it, getting to do laundry whenever the hell i want! no more searching for quarters! and last you come to the upstairs bathroom. yup you heard me! count it- 1, 2, 1/2! 2 1/2 bathrooms! and thats it. thats our beautiful home! we signed the papers! the distance isnt too bad, i can still ride my bike to the gym. there is a gym in the neighborhood but i like the big one on base. we are looking foward to a fun weekend of moving. its not like we were told we were gonna be in temp housing for longer than a month right, peice of cake!....oh wait...... :/ so we did get a little settled, haha but its whatever, WE GOT A HOUSE!

oh i almost forgot! :) at the very very very end of the hall there is this random room. its so weird, its like we have a 3 bedroom house or something..... what ever will i do with that room? XD

hrrmmmm......... :P

oh and in other news i locked the keys in the car again.......... was stuck at a gas station for 3 hours....

WE GOT A BIG HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!

pictures still to come......

procrastination and the trip! :3

super girl

hello! hello! :3 sooooooooo.................... im supose to be making a post for yall to see what ive been up to and how we are adjusting to our new life in new brain isnt really with it today. im having an add moment i guess.been a little crafty though, now that have access to jons new computer (^.^) i can do all the thing ive been missing out on! got a lil craft on polyvore^^^^^^, found some cool blogs, some new inspiration, and theres still so much i wanna do! i can now catch up on my fav tv shows online!!!!!! yay!!!!!!! jons old laptop is on its death bed and it cannot function the way it use to back in the yeah its catch up time! maybe ill even post more on here. (yeah yeah, i always say that) so its raining. its so gloomy outside, you cant blame me for having fun looking at clothes instead of writing the blog post i originally planned to write. i also need to find my card adapter so i can get the pics off my phone. its packed up somewhere. i have a cord but its in the car and its wet im not getting it. i wish jon was here to help me remember everything from the trip and that i wanted to say. today is his first day of work so thats where he is now. i myself had originally planned to explore the base on my own but like i said, its wet outside. i dont like wet. if i could describe the trip in one word it would be this: TREES. treestreestreestreestreestreestreestreestreestreestreestrees
i never thought i could be sick of trees.... first for everything i guess. the trip actually went by pretty quickly to me. jon would say differently but thats cause he did most of the driving. :P i spent the time reading aloud to him while he drove. we got throught the first hunger games and then half way through the second. whats amazing is that i didnt get sick once! if you dont know, i get car sick very easily. usually its cause i look out the window too much, or if im reading, or if the car smells(i hate the scent of new cars and leather seat). lenth of the ride doesnt matter; it can be during a 5 hour drive or a 5 minute drive. when i was little my mom used to drug me up with some pills that knocked me out till we reached out destination. haha and the pills we so nasty that sometimes i would get sick just trying to take them since i cant swallow pills. well anyways, so jon decided he was gonna train me to not get car sick so he had me read the hunger games to him. so yeah the trip was trees and hunger games.
ummmmmm..... lets see........
so we are here. got here thursday night. friday we got our temporary housing. downside is that we will most likely be here a month before we get our house. they are nice though so i dont really mind the wait. this weekend we visited the bx (base exchange), hung out in philly with a friend, and got settled in. tomorrow we plan on hitting the gym. suppose to be really awesome but we'll see about that. i need to find me a place to do zumba! i did manage to find a starbuck on base. :)
um well i guess thats it, ill see about picture tomorrow. jon gets to take some leave thing to get settled in when seem silly since we are getting on base housing but what ever. we thought it was wierd but aparently it ligit so we aint gonna say no to it. we'll just use this time to get more familiar to the area outside the base. :3
so yeah tomorrow: pictures and maybe some more fashion, tee hee
nite nite!
