Although it doesn't feel like fall (it's been about 80 degrees here the past few days...and trust me I am NOT complaining) football season has begun in full force. I am not a big football fan but I am learning to love it.
Now that we live in Ohio and I date the world's biggest Ohio State fan I was determined to get us tickets to the Toledo game last weekend. And darn it I got them!
Even though it was a 38-0 blowout, and we sat in the direct sun sweating the whole game and getting sunburn I can honestly say I had fun at my first Ohio State game. It was so much fun to see so many people out having a good time.

But the true non football fan in me must admit the by far coolest part of the game was the BEST DAMN BAND IN THE LAND show at half time.

The Ohio State band making a Toledo Rocket with smoke and all!!!

The infamous script Ohio, they broke apart and did 2 mini ones on each much fun!

So my first official Buckeyes game was a success!!

Look forward to more posts about all our crazy adventures we have been on lately. We just love being closer to our friends and family.

Happy Thursday!

I was doing some digging through my old grad school files at work today and found this and thought I would share:

24 Things to to Always Remember and 1 Thing to Never Forget
Your presence is a present to the world
You're unique and one of a kind
Your Life can be what you want it to be
Take the days just one at a time
Count your blessings, not your troubles
You'll make it through whatever comes along
Within you are so many answers
Understand, have courage, be strong
Don't put limits on yourself
so many dreams are waiting to be realized
Decisions are too important to leave to chance
reach for your peak, your goal, your prize
Nothing wastes more energy that worrying
The longer one carries a problem, the heavier it gets
Don't take things too seriously
Live a life of serenity not a life of regrets
Remember that a little love goes a long way
Remember a lot..goes forever
Remember that friendship is a wise investment
Life's treasures are people...together
Realize that it's never too late
do ordinary things in an extraordinary way
Have health, hope and happiness
Take time to wish upon a star
And Don't forget...for even a Special you are
~Collin McCarty
Have a great weekend!!

Life Happens

I have been terrible at posting the past month. I will rationalize and blame moving and starting a new job, but I am vowing to get better if for no other reason so that I can remember this "interesting" time in my/our life. Things have been ok. I like my job... Josh transferred jobs out here but is not enjoying his at all, so he has begun another job search, no fun! He is also definitely planning to go to school come spring, so we are trying to save up for that as well. I make a little bit more money at my new job, but the cost of living here is much higher than before so I have been really stressed about making ends meet. Yet there are so many more fun things to do I have a hard time staying at home. Its a tough situation.

I have never really talked about any of our relationship problems on here, but I think it is important for me to write them so that I can look back and realize that our relationship is strong and we can survive anything. Josh and I are just in a funk. I use that word cause I don't know what other word to use. It just seems like we are not meshing well lately. I think he truth is I just need to find something to do for me. Josh loves football and obviously its football season so he is happy. I just need to find a fun, inexpensive hobby that I love..easier said than done.

This post is becoming long and pointless but nonetheless we are ok, we are still settling into our "new"life which I know will be full of ups and downs but I know we will be ok.
