All Moved In!

Well hello there! We are finally all moved into our new place. It has been over a year since Little One and I moved back into my parents and we are so happy to be in our own place again. Little One misses her Grandma and Papa a lot though since she IS so used to seeing them every day. I keep reminding her that we are close to them now and we see them once a week. 

 

We've been trying to get into a routine and everything which has been a struggle, but nothing we haven't handled before. This is the first place that I am finally going to be decorating and I have so many idea. I'm mainly super excited about our new TV stand. We've never had a TV stand of our own. The one we had before was given to us for free. What's amazing is that all 200+ DVDs of ours are in a drawer and half. We decided to put the actual DVDs into CD sleeves and then into a media bin from target. I now just have to get some dividers since they are in alphabetical order. 

Other Updates! 

 
+ I am still learning about being a Beachbody coach. I have been doing the 21 Day Fix. It has been a heck of an adventure, but I am excited to take pictures to see the end result.

+ I did a babysitting gig a couple weekends ago and they had the cutest dog! He was so fluffy.



+ Little One was not feeling good last weekend, but this weekend she was back to herself and we painted, played games, and read books. She sometimes likes to take out the GoldieBlox toy I got her for Christmas and try her best at it. I help her with most of it, but it's so cute to watch her concentrate and be focused. 



What has everyone else been up to? How are your resolutions going?

UPDATE: Yes, the husband is with me ;)

Significance Series by Shelly Crane

SynopsisMaggie is a seventeen year old girl who's had a bad year. She was smart and on track, but then her mom left, her dad is depressed, she's graduating - barely - and her boyfriend of almost three years dumped her for a college football scholarship. Lately she thinks life is all about hanging on by a thread and is gripping tight with everything she has.


Then she saves the life of Caleb and instantly knows there's something about him that's intriguing. But things change when they touch, sparks ignite. Literally.



They imprint with each other and she sees their future life together flash before her eyes. She learns that not only is she his soul mate, and can feel his heartbeat in her chest, but there is a whole other world of people with gifts and abilities that she never knew existed. She herself is experiencing supernatural changes unlike anything she's ever felt before and she needs the touch of his skin to survive.



Now, not only has her dad come out of his depression to be a father again, and a pain as well, but Caleb's enemies know he's imprinted and are after Maggie to stop them both from gaining their abilities and take her from him.


Can Caleb save her or will they be forced to live without each other after just finding one another?

-------------------------------------------------------


This is probably one of my favorite books. It has everything you could ever want in a typical Young Adult/New Adult book. There are supernatural elements, so much romance, family, and damsel in distress but also bad ass chick moments.

In a way this book reminds me a lot of Twilight but a lot better. There are NO vampires and it's not cheesy supernatural. There is a theme of imprinting and it's what really drew me to this book. The idea of having an actual SOUL mate is so fun to read. In the book, the significant couple literally can't live without one another. It sounds creepy and possessive, but it's way more romantic than that.

Family is also a big theme in this book and although soul mates find each other and need to be around each other all the time, the family really makes sure the two keep their values and morals. 

I would give this book 5 out of 5 stars hands down.It has everything I've ever wanted in a book and I fel like it was all going the way I wanted to but not predictable.

What's really exciting is that they are trying to make this series into a TV SHOW! I am so excited and I really hope it gets picked up. Justin James Hughes will play Caleb which I think is a great choice. I love his YouTube videos and he also has no problem showing off those abs... hahaha

Charleston

Last Saturday we took a day trip to Folly Beach and Charleston, SC. Little One told me before I tucked her in her bed late at night, "I had lots of fun today."


 



 

Sis and her boyfriend!


Have you ever been to Charleston or a city like it?

Spin Art!

Here's another Christmas present we tried out earlier this week. I was so excited for this because it was a definite favorite of mine during my childhood. My sister was #boss at it. Little One LOVES arts and crafts so this was a hit.
