Welcome to Abilene

Last night, the ACU Students Association hosted its annual Welcome to Abilene event. Over 50 churches and vendors set up booths in the Hunter Welcome Center and all new students to ACU were invited. We decided to sign up because it was only $50 and figured we could get some good publicity out of it. Since we'd never done any events like this before, we just thought of what we would have liked as college kids. Free brownies and a chance to win a free lunch! So, we gave away brownie samples and offered a giveaway (picked two winners, instead of just one!). We probably had over 100 entries and most of our over 100 brownie bites were eaten. (Yes, I snuck a couple at the end and Emily got one before it started.)

All in all, I'd say it was a success. We had one girl say she'd been wanting to try it and one girl said Humphrey Bogart was her hero! Lots of fun!


In other news, I checked my email this morning and found that I had won Fluff Friday yet again (4th time!)! So excited to try new diapers and diaper products!!

New house

Today was my first day to really spend working on the new house. Since my parents are out of town, I really didn't have anything else to do. (At least, until I started thinking and making a list! But, that will be for tomorrow morning!) So, Emily and I headed over there to meet the phone guy and do some cleaning. Fortunately, there's not a whole lot there yet...the majority of our stuff is in the container that will come tomorrow night and be unloaded on Saturday. (If you live in Abilene and can help Saturday morning, let me know!)

Here are a few pictures of the new house in its beginning stages.

our tiny master bathroom (the shower is just to the left of the sink...the sink might be a 1/2" from the wall...maybe)
We'll be installing that cabinet shown in the forefront so we have some storage space in there!

We've been super busy this week, getting Bogie's up and running with us at the helm and getting stuff ready to move in this weekend.

This morning I got a little break from that and got to see the baby! Here are a few pictures.
