We've been busy...

This week I have been looking for an apartment at our future stompin' grounds in Dallas, Texas. Dan had to work so he couldn't go but my mom was already in Texas and was able to come along with me. (I pretty much owe her my right arm), she helped me for a few days with the daunting task of finding an apartment in a city neither of us have ever been too. Luckily, we had the GPS to help us not get too lost. Dan and I chose to live in Irving, a city right outside of Dallas because it seemed a little safer and more cost efficient instead of living downtown. We worked so hard, and did not do one thing, or even talk about anything other than finding an apartment! We were on a mission to find the best place for Dan and I to call home. Luckily, our mission was accomplished. On the last day, we finally found the perfect place in a really nice part of the town. I am really excited about it and the area is just gorgeous! Although Texas was hot and humid, I didn't think it was that bad at all, in fact, I really enjoyed the weather. The only thing I think I will have a hard time getting used to is all the HUGE cockroaches, bugs and spiders. I am not really a big fan of those creepy-crawly things. Anyway, Mom, thank you so much for your help, I couldn't have done it without you!
This is the area we are moving to, it is so beautiful with lots of trees. I am glad we found a nice area because some parts of Irving aren't so pretty.




Also....
We got to celebrate our nephew, Matthew's first birthday! His mom, Lindsey, made him the cutest bathtub cake. Matthew has done so much in his first year of life. Besides just being irresitablly cute, he has learned to walk, has a playful personality, and keeps his mom and dad on their toes.




And...
I just wanted to add this darling picture of Autumn after one of her ballroom performances. Autumn is Dan's little sister and she amazes us. We are so proud of her. She has so many talents and is really growing up to be an accomplished and beautiful girl.
