Trip to Iowa

This is Bruce's backyard. Anthony and I were able to wake up and look out our window to see this! What a beautiful view. If Iowa weren't so far away, I'd move there in a second.
Bruce's house needs some updating, but overall it is actually beautiful. This is my favorite part... the windows and the woodwork. All of the windows had beautiful character and there are hardwood floors throughout the house.
The boys spent Saturday afternoon replacing the roof on the back of Bruce's house. They seemed to have had a good time. Another project of Bruce's is re-doing the back porch seen here. He has ripped it up, and is now in the process of rebuilding it. I can't wait to see what he does with his charming new home.
The boys, hard at "work". Don't take too much pitty on them, it was a beautiful day--and they had beer.
To round off Saturday night, the boys decided they needed to visit a good friend...Jose! Apparently, Iowa beer doesn't do the trick. Thanks Bruce for having us, we had a great time!

GDI Dance

Thursday was the "start day" GDI dance. We had a great time with old friends and new. However it wasn't the same without our buddies Jacob and Bruce :)

Markita and I
Justin and Emily
Anthony and I
The dance was packed, as usual. What a great time.

Our Apartment

To the left is our front door. I'm standing in our living room, nothing much to see. This is our tiny dining room and kitchen. Although the kitchen is a good size. Behind the wall on the right is the fridge and walk-in pantry. We have so much storage in this's amazing!
This is our hallway, the first door to the left is a closet...behind the second door is our bathroom. At the end of the hall on the left is the office and the right is our bedroom. Along the right hand wall is the washer/dryer closet, however we use this as a storage area.
The lovely bathroom.
Our bedroom. These pictures were taken only a couple of days after we moved in, before we left for our honeymoon I snapped a few pictures...don't mind the mess. Through the door in the back is our patio. It now houses our grill and clothesline. :)
Lastly, this is our office. The last thing to be unpacked. It's our cozy place for writing papers (me) and paying bills (anthony) haha. Just kidding. Overall, we love our apartment, we only wish we could stay a little longer.
