Our entire apartment has white walls and white carpet. Since Dan and I tend to move a lot - I decided not to decorate our place this time around. I'm ok with this place not feeling like home, but during the Holidays, I needed a *little* something to spruce it up! The dinning room table was the lucky winner that got a decorating "make-over".Christmas will be here in a few short weeks. Happy Holidays!

Extra cash is certainly nice right now, aferall, we are a one income household for the time being. But, the great thing about our incentive money is that it only comes in a gift card. This means this extra money could not be spent on bills....darn, huh?! After tossing around ideas of where to get my gift card to, I decided on Target. All households always need to take trips to Target, so I figured this would be the smartest way to go! Then I had the internal debate of using the card to purchase household items, groceries and other not very fun to buy things OR spoiling myself a little bit. With a little encouragement from a good friend and the ok from my husband - I compromised on a little of both and boy am I happy I did! It's always fun to walk in the door, bags in hand, after making FUN purchases!
Here's what I got: a dark teal wrap dress, a funky thick black belt, tights (never thought i'd buy those!), a cute graphic t-shirt, a vest (that Dan refers to as a cape) and a simple aqua long sleeve t-shirt. (.....and some groceries, but a list of those isn't exciting). And my checkbook is still smiling because it was all "free" to me! :)

Prior to Labor Day weekend, our weekend was filled with a trip to the MN State Fair to see the Kid Rock & Lynard Skynard concert.
Other than that, life in MN isn't much different. Work is going well for me (as I assumed it would since I've worked here before) and Dan is still hunting for a job.

We decided before our move to MN to forego anything fancy, in hopes of saving up a nice lump of cash so we can buy our first home in the next year! So we've moved into a cozy little 1 bedroom + den apartment in Burnsville (pictures coming later).
We'll be settled in in no time! The last task on our big "to-do" list is to find Dan a job that he'll enjoy. He's been hard at work sending out his resume and attending interviews, so we're confident it'll all work out soon!

With all our pending excitement about to happen in the next few weeks, Dan and I needed a day to relax and not think about finding Dan a job, who's going to rent our place in SF, where we will live in MN, when we will move, how we will go about the move and all the other minor details. Our house really needed to be cleaned as well, but instead we had a fun filled Date Day to relax ourselves! First we started with a delicious breakfast: strawberry smoothies and blueberry muffins!
It was hot! But we certainly didn't complain because the warm weather seems to be sparse this summer! After golf
