We're Moving

We have found a place in Boise to move to. We are moving this weekend. I know it is fast but oh well. It is a really nice town house, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Just like Jeri said it is a bitter sweet thing. We are finally moving out of my parents house, I don't have drive over the hill anymore. It is so close that I don't even have to drive. But our friends and family are in Emmett. We will miss you even though we are only in Boise. Craig can't play basketball every other day anymore. Dang it. Just silly things like that! Craig is still going to work for my dad on the weekends, so we will be in Emmett a lot!

After pictures!

This piece had a lot of scratch marks in it. We got most of them out. The colors are also different if you can't tell.

I don't know if you can tell but

this one looks some much better

than before. The pictures are not that

good. The handles on this piece

are different than the before!

I know that it is already full. But Isn't so pretty Black! There is still some work that needs to be done that you can't see, like the door does not close well!

My new hobbie!

About 3 weeks ago, Craig and I went up to Cascade and got 3 old dressers from my cousin's other grandma's house. Here are the before pictures. We just finished refinishing them. It was lots of hard work. The big tall one we just washed and painted black. The mirror on that one was locked when we got it. My dad popped it open. It takes a old key to open it. We have tried like 4 or 5 keys and non of them work. The other two we stripped the varnish and stain and restained them a mix of mahogany and cherry. I really wanted it mahogany. My mom had a little mahogany, but not enough to do it all, and some cherry. So we mixed it and made our own color. The stripper stuff we used, I highly recommend it. It was called "Stripper" Ace brand. It did wonders! We used mineral spirits to wash them after the stripper stuff. It was lots of fun to do it. I really wanted a new bedroom set, so now I do, almost. Next I am looking for a head board and foot board that I can refinish to match! I will post the finished pictures soon.

My kind of camping!

Friday after work Craig and I went with Jeri and Scott and Bransen and Alisa and Jeremy up the Scott's family cabin. It is a really nice cabin up by cascade lake. They have lake front access walking distance from the cabin. We left around 6, (we were a little late because of Craig) and got up there a little after 8. Bransen got car sick on the ride up so we had to stop at the Cougar Mountain Lodge. I was glad to stop. I was getting a little car sick too. Jeremy and Alisa were about a half hour behind us. That night we just talked and played games. Alisa gets a little loopy when she gets tired. Saturday night we ate breakfast and was out on the lake about 10:30. We first went on a little boat ride to see Tamarack and it's beach front. There weren't many boats out. We spent the next 4 hours wakeboarding, skiing, and tubing. It was lots of fun. I tried to get Jeri to tube but she wouldn't. Scott said that his baby would come out with a stutter. Jeremy and Alisa left about 2. Craig and I battled it out on the tubes. I think the tubes won. At about 3 we loaded the boat and headed back to the cabin. We got cleaned up and went to Ice cream Alley in McCall. I got Lemon Pie Shake. It was so big, but sooo good. Saturday night Craig and Scott made us a camp fire like real boy scouts! We roasted Nathan's hot dogs and brots and marshmellows for smores. Mmmm! Sunday morning I woke up unable to move. I was so sore, from working muscles that I wasn't sure that I had and from being sun burnt. I think we all got sun burns. Jeri got it the worst. But we all got it pretty good! It was a great little weekend get a way. We had a great time. Brandsen was such a good baby the whole time. He is a talked just like his mommy!

This blogging this is kinda fun. I get to think of all the things that I have done and share them with you. Today I am going to talk about books. And especially the “Twilight” series. I have read the first 3 books and have pre-ordered the 4th book. I am a Jacob lover! Reading the 3rd book made like Edward a little more. But for a long time I didn’t like him at all. He was all wrong for her. Jacob, now he is the one. In my mind he is just gorgeous. The looks, the muscles, and the fun, he has it all. She can also have a life with him. Have children, be with her parents ect. I can’t wait to read the 4th one to see which one she goes with. At this point I want her to go with Jacob, but I won’t die if she goes with Edward.

Because of Jeri Gurney, I have started my blog. She loves it and thinks that I will love it as well. My life is good, but not that exciting. So if I talk about my family and friends it’s because I live vicariously through them. Craig and I live with my parents and we are trying to find a place to live in Boise. Southwestern part of Boise is where we are looking. Craig has is own business, fixing garage doors. He really does like it. Keeps him busy and bring in some money while he is going to school. Summer has gone by so fast. School starts in a month. We just came back from visiting Craig’s grandparents in Priest River Idaho. It’s way up north! We had a great time. Most of his Aunts and Uncles were there. I still haven’t met all of his cousins. They live right on the river. It is a beautiful spot to live, but lots of mosquitoes, Nasty little buggers. We drove up on Hwy 95, lots of green rolling hills and fields. We came home on the freeway, where there is nothing to look at, nothing but desert. It was nice to have a break from work. I was able to sleep in for 4 days in a row. I work at the Farm Bureau Insurance Company Claims office in Boise. When we moved back to Boise, I transferred offices and jobs. I originally started at Farm Bureau in May 2006 in the Finance Office. Now 2 years later I am in Boise in the Claims department. It is a great company to work for, great benefits. Our life couldn’t be better right now!
