I'm still alive, I promise.

YOU GUYS! What has been up with me lately? It's been over two weeks since I've blogged. I can't say I feel bad about that because, well, I don't. But I wish I had a little more motivation. DJ is out at work and boredom has convinced me to head over here and update you guys a little so you know I'm still alive...

My birthday is in less than three weeks and that's crazy to me because I've been counting down since like...February. I'm excited and bummed at the same time. Excited because it's my birthday...duh. And I'll officially be in my 20's (finally). But, DJ will be gone at work and I leave exactly two weeks after my birthday. Which doesn't make sense. Like, how is it so close already? This summer seriously flew by way. too. fast.

There is one good thing about me leaving though. Besides the fact that I'll get to see Carlin, Carissa, and Kailey when I get home, that is. What could be good about another long and tough airport goodbye? Well, it's our LAST ONE! After we say goodbye at the end of August, we'll never have to again. DJ will head home around December and then we'll finally drive back together and start our life. Goodbye long distance relationship, can't say I'll miss you.

We've been doing fun things around here. We took a trip to Helena the other day. It didn't have as much to do as we thought, but it was still fun to explore another city. We walked around downtown, had lunch, visited the prettiest cathedral, and went to the state capitol building. Oh, and the drive there....holy shit. It was honestly so beautiful. I envy the people that have homes along the Missouri River. So beautiful. Oh, and we went to the "mall" in Helena. People warned us about it, but we wanted to check it out. I figured it couldn't be worse than the mall here in Great Falls, but oh was I wrong. We entered the mall through JC Penny. When we looked to the exit to the rest of the mall, it literally looked like a horror movie. The lights were dim, there was no one walking around, and there were NO other stores in sight. WHAT! Maybe I'm a mall snob because we have so many good ones in Phoenix, but still. This was pathetic!
Okay but really, look at that sass.

We've been working on our new place more and more. We're almost done with our picture collage in the living room, so I'm excited about that and I'll post pictures once we finish! I'm really loving our house and I'm glad it's the place we get to start our lives together!
These horses are right next door to us! Like, I was standing in our yard when I took this! It's pretty cool. I was afraid to get too close though...yolo.
I made this pallet flag last time DJ was gone. I've been gettin' my craft on! Oh, and scrabble coasters, too!

So, that's what I've been up to. I'm loving being here with him. It's honestly perfect and it makes me SO excited to move here!

Also, I'm taking a break from my Passionfruit subscription. But, if you're interested in a design or advertising, please email me!

I missed you guys, really. What have you been up to?

Happy Saturday loves! DJ had to head into work for training this morning so I figured I should probably head over here and get something new up because, you know, I've been slacking pretty hard when it comes to blogging.

It has been a good week around here! DJ and I have just been relaxing and caching up on The Walking Dead which has been stressing me out because its getting so intense right now.

some badass bald eagle pictures

Well hello! It's been a long time since I've been around here. Well, longer than usual. I kind of had my mind set on not blogging for awhile. I sort of felt like giving it up. But then Carissa told me I'm not allowed to say that. So I took it back and here we are.

Our new place is finally unpacked for the most part. We're still waiting to get a few more things and then it'll finally be done. We're looking for a dining room table and a desk still, but other than that we've gotten pretty good deals on some cool stuff. We got a dresser for pretty cheap from someone on base. It's ugly though...like, really ugly. So hopefully we'll be refurbishing that sometime in the near future.

We've been pretty crafty in the new place so far and it's been...interesting. We got some pallets for free from the commissary, and we decided that we were going to make our own coffee table. So we hit up the Home Depot and got some supplies. Except we didn't have a lot to spend, so no power tools for us. We built our cute little coffee table with just a hammer and nails, and a hand saw. Well, most of it with a hand saw. We ended up caving and buying a tiny little electric saw thingy. But it was still kind of a pain. I'm really happy with how it turned out though! We also made a cute little pallet shelf.
Alright, so there they are still outside. I don't have a good picture of them inside yet, but once we get some stuff on the shelf I promise I'll share.

We've been much busier lately. We've been spending less time lounging around watching TV and more time taking advantage of his off days and enjoying ourselves. We've been out for coffee, seen some movies, and even went for a walk around the river. That was really amazing. The river runs right through the city and there's a little path that runs alongside. We went for a walk and enjoyed the windy day, beautiful scenery, holding hands on our walk, and seeing a snake and a bald eagle! We also carved our initials into some wood, which I'm excited about since we probably wont ever get to see the spot where we did that in Germany again.
 What a hottie, huh?
 Isn't Montana beautiful? It amazes me that this is literally in the middle of the city!
 It's kind of hard to see our initials in the picture, but they're there!
 I left Arizona to get away from the snakes. Not okay.
 I was pretty excited about my bald eagle pictures but DJ says they suck. Oh well. I was excited! Happy 4th of July! Woo yay America.
We haven't had macarons since Belgium, so this was a fun treat! This awesome little cafe has great coffee, amazing cakes, and of course- the best macarons!

I hope everyone had a happy and safe holiday!
