a new house?

Derek and I saw a place in Orting across the street from a friend. We fell in love with it and are hoping for the best! It's more than what we could have imagined we'd want and it's perfect for us! We just have to hear back from the landlord and save up our first/last and deposit to move in... oh and give our landlord notice. Hopefully giving them notice will not be a problem seeing as we'll be breaking out lease just about 3 months shy of the end. I'm praying hard that if it's meant to be it'll all work out, but I REALLY REALLY WANT IT! ;]

Lifetime Member!

It's official! I'm a Weight Watchers Lifetime Member! I reached my goal weight and maintained for 6 weeks... which means I get free Weight Watchers (which I do already because I work there) but I also only have to weigh in once a month phew! haha! I'm so proud of myself for losing almost 31 pounds and proving I can maintain it. I'd love to lose another 10 or so, but it'll take a while. Joining Weight Watchers was the best thing I did for myself... learning how to keep my portions down and to keep my body in shape with exercise has changed my life!

Why I love him

Derek has been such an amazing part of my life for the last 4 years. He is such a great husband and father and I can't imagine my life without him! I am sure I've posted a blog like this before, but I can't help myself ;] I love how I can be myself and he loves me for me! He's always positive and sees the good in people (sometimes I think he may be blind! lol!)... something that so many people lack. He works his butt off to provide for our family and helps out around the house when I'm at work. He and I have come a long way from when we first met and in a month (ok... one day short of a month;]) we'll be celebrating our 2nd wedding anniversary! I'm excited to see what comes in the years ahead of us! I love you honey and I'm so proud to be called Mrs. Derek Patsey!

Learning Patience

I still haven't heard about the house Derek and I looked at 2 weeks ago and I'm beginning to think that we're just not right for it. I've started to look at other places for rent and can't find a single thing! Of course it's hard to see the good in a place when you've already found what you think is perfect for you... but I'm trying. I am so thankful for our place, but really want to move. It's up to God for sure if we move or not, but I'm definately learning to be patient here. It's definately not my strong point... I know that with prayer, we'll end up finding the perfect place for us. I can't help but hope it's soon! ;]

Can't sleep

I'm now sitting in my bed with the laptop while Derek sleeps. I can't seem to get into the state that he's in and I wish I was! I think it's all the excitement... Yesterday my sister called me and asked me if we were strickly looking for a house in Bonney Lake. Her co-worker is moving out of her rental in the Puyallup area and is looking for a great tenant for the landlord. Her other co-worker suggested Derek and I to move there. We decided to go look at it today and we were more than pleased! It's an older home and has some outdated stuff, but I can deal. It's around 1900 square feet, has 3 bedrooms, 1 1/2 bathrooms, a 2 car garage, a huge back yard and a huge covered patio! Did I mention that it also has an insanely big master bedroom?! Everything about this place is so great that I didn't have a hard time looking past the fact that it's older. We won't be there forever, but maybe a couple years. The lady who owns it is out of town right now and should be getting to us this week and hopefully she says it's ours! If we move there I'll finally be able to have more than 2 people over at a time haha! I need to get some sleep... maybe if I just stop thinking about this place I will ;]
