my week in pictures.

Laundry never ends!
Spent a few days home alone. (not particularly thrilled about that- see sad face, or maybe mad face? ha, but I got over it).

A delish Swedish apple pie awaits Devin's return home (thanks Tawny for the recipe!)
A trip to the farmer's market- of course.
Christmas on my mind.
Some good company- Henry being silly as always.

there's a first time for everything.

My first time staining wooden furniture (ever)....

one thing's for sure

(well maybe a few...)

  • kraft macaroni and cheese is always better the second day.
  • i'm totally digging my new haircut (possibly the best cut I've ever had- pictures to come).
  • my love (and longing) for bull dogs is not just a phase- Devin, my dear

maybe one day.

Today I am thankful for

  • a nice clean kitchen (in which I adore. I'll post some pictures of our place before we leave!)
  • church that now starts at 11 a.m.
  • the Gospel of Jesus Christ
  • and my husband, who just adores me to pieces (and I to him likewise.....ha if that makes any sense. you know what I mean).

    Visited the Raliegh Flea Market again...


    But this time around I had Devin accompany me to make sure I didn't go too crazy.

    Pressure Cooker- check
    Muffin pan- check
    Santa Christmas ornament- check
    A fresh assortment of produce- check

    all for under a whopping 30 dolla!

    Now it's time to go cook some fresh veggies in our brand new BLUE pressure cooker!

    My life is complete.

    A recent discovery of mine while taking a gander through Cary......  TRADER JOES within 10 minutes from my house?!!

    This deserves it's own post.

    A-W-E-S-O-M-E :)

    I just love me some organic, made with 100% fruit, fruit leather.

    (I also snuggled with an adorable beagle puppy after our visit to TJ. I must admit, it was hard to say good-bye. I mean we are a little dog crazy right now).

    Oh just some thoughts.

    Wow, September already.... Where does the time go???

    Hm, to be honest I really don't know what to blog about sometimes (hence me not blogging for about a weeks time). My life right now consists of sleep, work, reading, shopping, and play. Not too exciting, right? 

    At least I'm not in school- I was in school STRAIGHT from the fall of 2007 until my graduation in June of this year. Crazy.

    Well, I'm really excited about starting two more jobs (thanks you have been a blessing in my life) on top of my current job.

    Housecleaning and pet sitting and babysitting consumes my days until we move (Devin put in our 30 day notice today).

    Let's see. Some highlights for the Carroll's this month:

    • Hopefully we'll make it to one of North Carolina's beaches before the weather becomes too cold.
    • Devin has a interview for USC SOM on the 22nd! I'm so excited/proud of him :)
    • Pretty much whatever we haven't done on the list of things to do before we leave will hopefully be accomplished before October.
    • In case you didn't know, Devin and I will have been married for 25 months on the 23rd ;) 
    • My brother Nathan will be 19 on the 15th- he's a freshman at BYU. Sniff, Utah.
    • And there's a slight chance that I could become pregnant this month since we can't afford birth control for the time being. (we shall wait and see).
    • Oh yea, and we're moving at the end of this month!!

    Peace for now :)
