Black Friday

What a crazy day! Orion and I were not crazy enough to go super early in the morning so we did not get any SUPER AMAZING deals. But we did get some nice clothes. We each go two pairs of pants, sweaters, shirts, and pjs! I felt a little ridiculous when I got to the check out stand and the lady told me how much all of the stuff was. It was a little over a hundred dollars and I was so excited that we got all of that stuff. Yay for amazing deals and nothing costly over 15 bucks! Basically that is our Christmas present's to ourselves unless we get more money. I am hoping we make some extra money to buy a sewing machine! Then I could attempt to be crafty. We a glorious day that will be! Or it might turn out bad, we will see.

I am so excited for Thanksgiving! One because someone else will be doing the cooking and shopping. Two I will get to sleep in and cuddle with Orion. And three, the reason I am really really excited about Thanksgiving is NO SCHOOL FOR A WEEK! I am so excited! I don't have school work for an entire week it is going to be amazing and probably at some times boring because I won't have anything to do.

On a side note it was Orion's birthday day last week. On the 14th he turned 23! I made him a yummy ice cream cake. It is our new thing that we are trying to master. My attempt was a little better than Orion's because I learned from his mistakes. Although on our way over to Orion's brothers house the ice cream melted that was suppose to be the bottom layer and got all over my pants. I was wearing blank pants so it was very clear that I had ice cream all over them. A tip for the wise do not put ice cream as a bottom layer. It will just melt all over you.

I am not very good at writing on cakes. I figured it was ok because the cake was a messy theme. Those are candy rocks and gummy worms all over the cake. Our little nieces and nephews loved the cake. Our two year old nephew played with one of the worms for half an hour. It was great. Hopefully when we have children Orion and I will be masters at making birthday cakes.

Work Work Work

So Orion's new job has lots of opportunity for over time. In fact they had a meeting last week where they told everyone who works there that if they work 60 hours in one week onto of all the over time, they will get a $200 bonus. That comes out to a lot of money! Orion is thinking about doing a sixty hour week, he plans on doing five 12 hour days. He currently is working nine hour days because he wants to build our saving account back up/save up for a new car. I want a new couch.

This one looks pretty good. I like the pillows on it and the fact that it looks really comfy. Our current couch is on its last leg. It is falling apart. In fact when you sit on it you start to sink in. We have attempted to offset the sinking in by placing blankets on the couch. We are clearly poor newly weds. Our hope is that we get a couch for Christmas, meaning we buy ourselves a couch for Christmas. SO if you have any tips on good places to get couches I am all ears.

ORION GOT A JOB!!!!! This is the best news that we have gotten in a long time. Poor Orion went almost TWO MONTHS without a job. He was going crazy, but getting really good at his video games. Personally I thought he could do something better with his time. Like make me a cake! Which he did for my birthday on October 29.

Here he is working hard making me an ice cream cake all by himself! How cute is he? I only had to help him frost it because he tried to frost it too early. He took some chunks out of the cake so extra frosting was needed in some areas. All and all it was really good. It was his first time ever making an ice cream cake. He was so proud of himself.

You can kind of tell where there is a chunk missing in the picture, but we fixed that right up. He even wrote Happy Birthday Kayde on it and let me tell you his hand writing is not the best. I think writing on it took most of his time because he was trying so hard to make it look good. He did a great job. What a good guy.

So we had a little party to celebrate my birth on the 30th because my parents took us to Red Lobster on my actual birthday, which by the way was AMAZING! Seriously if you live close to a Red Lobster you should go and get there unlimited shrimp, it like 15 bucks, so worth it! I left with a little aquarium in my stomach. Anyways so we have my little party and enjoy the wonderful cake Orion made. We had decided that if Orion did not have a job at the end of the month, the 31st, we would move to wonderful (or not so wonderful if you ask me) Fresno. It was crunch time. We were pretty sure he was going to get the job offer down in San Luis Obispo, where he currently works now, but we were not sure when it was going to come. So we decided to wait just a couple more days before we moved. Then on November 1st, just one day after our deadline, HE GOT THE CALL. HE GOT THE JOB! It was a miracle!

We don't have move! Life is wonderful! In fact we are thinking about moving to SLO in the near future so Orion does not have to drive 25 minutes to work everyday or drive up and down the grade. I will keep you updated.
