Good news, bad news

The good news: We have officially sold all of our furniture! 

The bad news: We still have to live in our apartment for another week...without a bed.

Here's what our current set up looks like:

We may not have a couch, but at least we still have our patio furniture!

Note: Memory foam mattress toppers are not nearly as comfortable without the mattress.

Our Almost Anniversary

Keith and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary yesterday. I know, pretty exciting...but hold off on the congratulations. You see, our actual anniversary is November 27th. So why did we celebrate it yesterday?

Well, after we drive out to Texas, Keith has to fly back out to Utah to finish school/finals so we will be apart for 2 weeks. Being the romantic, wonderful wife I am, I of course booked his flight for (yes, you guessed it) November 27th. And even worse, his flight leaves early that morning. Oops. So we'll get to celebrate our anniversary by waking up early and saying goodbye for 2 weeks. With all the craziness of moving and getting ready to leave, we just decided to celebrate our anniversary early. 

We weren't really planning on celebrating it THIS early but since we are both such amazing gift givers, we couldn't wait to give each other our presents. Keith got me a wedding band for my ring because I have just had my engagement ring since we got married. (I guess he decided he wants to stay married to me after all.) It turned out so beautiful! I'm glad I have such a romantic, thoughtful husband.

I got Keith a watch that he has been wanting and some cologne. He was happier about it than he looks in this picture.

Here are some photos of our anniversary bling:

Can't believe it has already been 1 year! (Well, almost.)

Happy Halloween!

For halloween, Keith and I (okay mostly I) planned our outfits around Chipper's halloween costume. I got this cute little cow costume for Chipper, so Keith and I dressed as a cowboy and cowgirl. 

Don't we look cute?

On Saturday, we had our ward "trunk or treat." When I signed up to do the trunk or treat, I assumed our ward party would be at night. So of course I bought glow in the dark spider webs, orange lights and a little tombstone that glowed red inside to decorate our trunk. Weelll....turns out our party was at 2pm in broad daylight. Here's how the trunk turned out. Definitely might have been better had it been dark outside...

Here is Keith passing out candy to the kiddos. He refused to wear his cowboy hat. Although I have to admit, it was pretty flamboyant. It looked a lot more country music star than cowboy.

For the actual night of Halloween, I made a classic halloween dinner: homemade chili, cornbread, salad and "witches' cofee" (a Jensen family favorite). And no, witches' coffee does not contain any actual coffee, just Rootbeer and dry ice. Apparently that's just what Keith's little brother Tyler called it and the name stuck.

Hope you all had a happy Halloween!
