We celebrated with pizza.

to nights. Ryan is off nights starting this week! Yay. I'm so happy to have my husband at home to protect me at night. I never really felt unsafe, but the dogs freaked me out sometimes with their barking. He finally got put back on days and first shift. So good. So, now we're home together for so many hours. It's awesome.

So, our lease is up on our apartment...
|(the day we got the keys)|
Remember we made the move to the west side of Houston for my previous job. It was 1 mile away. Ryan's commute was longer, but I had driven an hour to work and an hour home from work for a year, so it was a good compromise. So, moving now is our only option as we're both currently working on the opposite side of Houston. We really hate living in the city anyway.
We like our apartment and being able to establish our own place, but we don't like renting. So, we accepted Ryan's parents' offer and we're moving back to Crosby.
I know what you're thinking. A big question mark right? Well here is the logic.
- We both work on that side of town
- Our student loan payments are outrageous and we'll be able to put more money towards paying them down
- Ryan is starting school soon and we need to be able to pay for it
- We won't have to pay rent saving us roughly $1000 a month
- We'll be back at our home church!!

Anniversary Vacation 2012 -- Big Bend
The (long) drive
Rest stop somewhere on I-10
The mammoth is a souvenir for the dogs. This is the first trip they have
not been on with us and it felt weird, so we got them a present
and took pictures of him as if he were the dogs. I know weird right.
I missed them :)
Getting closer to the mountains
Stretching our legs about an hour left
We stayed on the left side
The resort pool
It was a beautiful resort and the food was awesome!
I'd recommend this place to anyone.
I'm going to write another post for pictures of the trails and other stuff.
I thought this was already too long.
