Out with the mess...

Chris and I have been waiting to buy a matching tv stand for our living room for a while now. Over the past months, I've been diligently watching the target ads for sales and this week was the week! Praise God, no more messy corner! We had been using Chris' old, plastic eyesore of a tv stand since we've moved here, and I can't say how excited I am to see it go. With our new and improved look, we have more storage for our dvd's and all the cables/wires are hidden! I know this is a girl thing, but boy, does it make a difference. As a woman, I am so excited to see our living space grow and mature into "home sweet home." I was also very proud of my handy husband for successfully assembling this new piece of furniture!

Before: Construction: After!

Random things...

Nothing to new to report here; newlywed life has settled into a delightfully regular routine. This weekend Chris and I went grocery shopping, got the oil in my car changed, rented a movie and took a wonderful Sunday afternoon nap after church.
I would like to share a great and thrifty discovery we made on Friday night. It is called the "Red Box," and they are located in Harris Teeters. Chris had a friend recommend this, and because we were eating out at the Panda King right next to the grocery store, we decided to try it out. The Red Box is like a $1 vending machine for movies. New Movies too!! I was a bit skeptical at first, but i've since become a believer. There is a GREAT selection of movies, which is updated regularly with new releases. We rented "Dan in Real Life," for just a dollar, when we would have paid almost $5 at Blockbuster! The only catch is that you have to return the movie the next day, and even then it's only a dollar late fee/day. I strongly recommend trying it out, i predict this saving us a lot of money! By the way, "Dan in Real Life" was a great movie; clean, family friendly and funny to! Hard to come by these days.
In other news, girl scout cookie season is officially over. I'm freezing a box to open on my birthday! Hopefully i can make it to July! The way time is moving so fast lately, I'm sure it will be here and gone before i know it. Speaking of, I can't believe it's Spring already :)
