Ha my sexy Hercules! We played a kind of how well do you know your spouse game and came in 2nd behind sean and katelin Bringhurst...not bad! ha ha then we had a pie eating contest! If you won you got to shove pie into your spouses face- so of course I reminded Joel that if he won I would kill him :) Luckily neither of us won (although I did put in a good effort and joel started getting worried i'd win towards the end!) But the pie was AMAZING so that was probably the best part ha haLook at him go! ha ha and on the next one you cant really tell but he has pie all over his face ha ha
Now its my turn- Ha I was really worried I was going to get pie in my hair

Joel and I have been praying to know whether we were making the right decision to buy it- and I was a little discouraged that I hadnt really gotten an answer. So I thought back to a John Bytheway talk about how sometimes not getting a "no" answer to your prayer is kind of like getting a "yes". So I figured it was a green light. But I couldnt shrug off all of the people telling us "there are too many weird things about the house..." "Too many red flags..." I found myself justifying buying the house despite those things. I would say well any house that old would have some things wrong, or we've already spent so much on the inspection and appraisal.....Basically I was looking at it emotionally rather than logically (which is what my dad and Joel kept telling me, but of course I said I wasnt.)
So Joel and I decided to go look at the house one last time yesterday evening. As we were walking through it we started talking about the things we did and didnt like about the house. AND started noticing some oddities. After Joel finished commenting on how when he walked through the center of the living room his head almost hit the bottom of the fan, he asked if I really thought we should buy the house. I immediatley heard, "No." Not from in my head- but like I HEARD it. Then as I thought, the word No, I felt...right inside. I cant really explain it- but when I said it outloud to Joel I knew that I had gotten my answer- I felt warm and good and relieved! and of course I became emotional and had to keep myself from crying. :)
This answer also put me into immediate despair as we walked back into our half packed, messy house that we have to be out of by Sunday.
But Joel, being the amazing man that he is, said we needed to get out of the house and just drive. So we did. And I cried. But the more we talked and started looking at other houses the better I felt. And when we got home it was like a huge weight of doubt that I had been carrying around with me was gone.
I still dont know how we are going to get everything out by Sunday or where its all going, but thats ok, I know we will figure it out. I am so thankful to have a loving Heavenly Father who KNOWS what is best for us and helps us get to it when we ask. I am also thankful for a husband who always knows what I need- how to get me back on track. :)

We are set to close on our house on the 25th...I hope the seller gets everything fixed he was supposed to in time- because I really just wanna move in already!
For my birthday present to myself I went and got my hair done. Again. Ive been so bored with my hair so I decided to do something dramatic. So I cut off about 5 inches and colored it a dark brown with red tint! ha ha Joel came home and was like, "I dont even recognize you!" ha ha so its a little different :) This is a nerdy picture I took at work while being bored, im trying to be incogneto.

This is the thing she does when she thinks she's in trouble-like she's showing you submission so she doesnt get in trouble ha ha i love it

The other problem is that if we try to look for another house how do I know that we wont go through the same thing- fork out another $250 for the appraisal and $250 for the inspection and have it come back with lots of problems. All of the houses we are looking at are built before 1960- so apart of me is like well they are all probably going to have some issues so maybe we just say ok and fix it. Then another part of me is like I just dont want to deal with it! Should we just keep renting? aaaaaaahhhhhhh.
And this is why I wish I could just go to the house store and buy one. period.
In other happier less depressing news...I made enchiladas! Wahoo! ha ha I normally hate cooking- I would rather do dishes for 2 hours than cook- BUT I think there is hope for me afterall because I actually sort of enjoyed making them. I think I really just enjoyed the fact that Joel loved them and that I made them. all by myself. And that they were actually REEEAALLLYY good. These arent MY enchiladas but they looked almost exactly like this ha ha so I figured I could put it up.
