Praise the Lord!!!!

We got an apartment!!!! We didn't realize it at first, but God timed everything perfectly. Now I can work on the major cleaning during March (before anything goes in) and then not have to worry about it, come April and May while we're working on making the 9 dresses for the Flower Girl and Bridesmaids and altering my dress among all the other wedding things that we are going to have to do. The apartment is maybe 10 minutes from Scott's parent's house and 15 minutes from my family's house. And, it is closer to work for Scott (another Praise!). We go to get the keys this week. I am so excited. It seems kind of "surreal" as my Mom would say. I've already made out a long cleaning list, room to room. The kitchen and living room is one room. Half is carpeted, and the other half is linoleum. The counters/cabinets are all along one wall. It has lots of counter space (which is a "biggy" for me) and lots of cabinets too! It's small, but it's perfect for us! :) I'm already planning on how I want to set up things. The only pieces of furniture we need are a couch or love seat and an arm chair. God has already provided us with a bed, dining room set, coffee table and end table. We also already have bureaus and a desk.

I just finished printing off our Wedding Invitations (and response cards). They look great and now we have a whole month to fill out the envelopes.

My youngest sister is getting baptized tonight (Praise the Lord!). She's the last one of the seven of us. My youngest brother was baptized a few weeks back, and it is so exciting to see how even though they're young, they not only understand about salvation, but about baptism too.

Oh, that is great news Kelley. :) I echo your praise to God!! It is nice being close to family. We live 2 miles from Tony's parents and 4 miles from my parents. I'll pray that God provides you two with a really good deal on a living room set. ;)

It's about time I visited this blog, my Love! I really am very excited about the appartment. Finally a corner of the world for the two of us; our nest!
