Time is flying

I can't believe how quickly time is flying by, it seems so long ago that I wrote my last post here. Besides being busy working (who isn't) we found out earlier this week that we got the apt we applied for which means we will be MOVING at the end of this month!!. We are both super excited to be moving to the new place. Not only is it closer to where I work, but it's also a 2 level townhouse with 1.5 bathrooms and insuite laundry. Right now we are renting a one level place that has just outgrown us. I'm kind of dreading the whole packing part, but excited to be able to redecorate our new place.

The weather here the last couple days has been soo hot. It's been in the 30's (oC not oF) and looks to be staying that way until at least tuesday. Yesterday we decided to take a day trip and just get out of the house. We did a little shopping (preshopping for decor idea for our new apt) and had lunch at Earls courtesy a gift card I received at my bachelorette party. Hubs had the Los Cabos Chicken Taco's and I had the Cajun Chicken Cheddar Sandwich. Once our meal came we decided to split it so we could sample a little of what each other had. I must say it was one of the better meals I've had out in a long time. Food was excellent and the service was great.

We decided to head up to Coombs and along the way seena sign for the Coombs fair, which we thought was an added bonus as we had no idea it was going on. Coombs is a great little day adventure to a little market witha  bunch of shops surrounding it. You can buy everything from homemade breads, desserts, a huge assortment of cheeses, to Asian pottery and household items including antiques and things for the garden. What i love most about this place is how you can find such unique things that you generally can only find in a specialty store and that its like a flea market. We ended up buying a drink to cool off and some Jalepeno cheddar cheese brear to bring home. Another cool feature of this place is that the roof of the main building is grassy and there are actually goats that live on the roof. It ended up being so hot that we left early and decided to go grab an ice cream to help beat the heat. We decided to stop in at Dairy Queens for a cone but ended up getting a Blizzard after I seen they had the Brownie Batter Blizzard on the menu (its a tough one to find on the menu and often just a month feature once in a blue moon). Afterwords hubs and I packed it in and headed home.

Today we plan on getting a good head start on packing our current apt up. Hope everyone is having a great weekend so far.
