We got the keys!

So Friday I think my heart was going to beat out of my chest if I didn't get to leave work right on time...I picked Caleb up and we drove very quickly over to the lease office of our apartment complex. We initialed our little lives away and got those keys as fast as we could.

Drove the 30 second drive over there and ran inside so quickly I almost tripped over our cute little welcome mat.

Video Camera strapped to Caleb's hand... he hit that record button and we made our first "home video". The first of many many many. We've made it a goal to be sure we grab the video camera for random nothings in our new home, the big moments and the silly ones. That way, at the end of the year... we can make one huge compilation from 2013! The thing is, neither of us have many "home videos" from our child-hoods, and I want to be able to look back on moment's like these when were 70 and laugh our butts off, still so in love.

We traipsed all over the apartment, and checked out the brand new place. I pretended I did laundry (yes It came with a washer/dryer INSIDE!!!) and then did some silly jumps and frolicked in our new home.

YOU KNOW we had to take some selfies in the mirror... isn't that what bathroom's are for?!

We spent almost a full hour in the apartment just taking in every sweet, sweet moment.

I just can't believe this is my life. At one point, after we shut down the video camera... I looked at Caleb while he checked out our new balcony, and I just smiled so huge. I cannot believe I have someone so in love with me... and I with him, & this is the first chapter of the rest of our lives together. I can't wait to see how many memories will be made in this new home of ours.

After leaving our apartment... my man surprised me by actually picking a new restaurant out to try. It was in a little town on the main street, and it was SO cute.

That was the only part of the restaurant....

so we thought.

There's a sign that lets you know to seat yourself... but Caleb sees a hallway and some stairs and tells me to follow him. I start pulling on his arm like CALEB! We can't go back there!! Right when I say that, the hallway turns into this cute platform set of stairs...

Then you go up some more stairs....

Sorry about the bad quality...I was trying to be discreet!
Yes, that is a blue ceiling and BRIGHT orange walls. The lighting was sooo dim and the upstairs that I thought was off limits turned out to be a loft lounge. How amazing?! If you go back to the first picture... you can see the ceiling goes really high... that's because from the top of this lounge you can look down and see the bar area. If we had gotten there just an hour later we would've seen a live band, free!

We got seated immediately and it was our waiters first night, bless his heart. He did so great!

Scary, right? ;)

That's my man being all Yeah, I did good. Brownie points, babe.

Seriously... my weekend was amazing. Saturday was spent doing Insanity, then relaxing cleaning my room, and picking out wedding invitations with my grandma. That is one thing Caleb didn't mind missing out on! We will have to send those out soon! YAY!

Sunday, Caleb and I taught the K-5 kids at church... we volunteered for the whole month of March. I've missed their sweet little hearts! Then did another day of Insanity... and now I feel dead.

Tonight's agenda? Insanity fit test... Kill me now.
Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!!!
