I am excited to share with you guys a new blog series between Caleb and I!!!
I have been wanting to start a blog post series that Caleb and I can work on together for some time now and I knew I wanted it to show something that we both had a passion in. We have been brainstorming different ideas and we knew that we wanted the series to have music involved in it. Caleb really loves his music and is always showing me great bands, if it wasn't for him I wouldn't enjoy music as much as I do now. Since we have a love of music we decided we would share the music we are currently listening to in our new blog series called "Our Month in Songs"! I hope you enjoy this new series of ours :)

My sister and her boyfriend, Brad asked if we would want to go see a movie with them down by the Riverwalk last weekend. Every Saturday our towns hosts an outdoor movie night where they play different kid movies and that night they were playing Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2. Although Caleb and I have never watched the first one we thought it would be fun to go see it with them! We found a spot right by the river and laid out some blankets in the grass. We had such a great time! I'm glad we were able to spend some time with them and have a fun double date night!
Soooo.......... Caleb and I decided to start looking for a place to rent!!!! We have been talking about it for awhile now and we figured now is as good as a time as ever. We both have good jobs, I will be graduating soon, and we have everything you need for a home stored away waiting to be used.
We started looking a couple of weeks ago and the first place we looked at was this amazing studio apartment that had wood floors, brick walls, and an open floor plan. It was love at first sight! We filled out an application and waited anxiously to find out if we were going to get it or not. Unfortunately we didn't get it which was pretty upsetting. I got my hopes up and was already picturing our lives together in the cute apartment with so much character that fit our style perfectly. Although it was discouraging we soon after found an adorable house. It has wood floors, a cute little kitchen, a yard, and it is just a block away from my school. We quickly turned in an application for it and are waiting to schedule and appointment to see the place in person. We are trying to not get our hopes up again because we don't know what the outcome will be but is so hard to not think where I could put all of our furniture and decorations and how different but perfect our lives will be living together for the first time. It is a very exciting but nerve wracking experience! We are hoping to have a place within a couple of months but if it takes longer to get a great place then that is okay too. It is nice that there is no rush on moving in together so we don't have to live in a place we don't love. I would rather take longer and find a lovely home then move in together right away and have it be a dumpy place.
We are keeping our fingers crossed on the house and can't wait to find out what will happen :)
Wish us luck!!!!!
Last Sunday we decided to take a trip up to the mountains. We loaded up our car with food and Maggie and hit the road! We are lucky enough to live only about 30 minutes away from this town called Beulah which has beautiful hiking trails and campsites. As soon as we arrived we decided to set up for a picnic and found a perfect spot underneath all of these amazing pine trees towering over us. Caleb picked us up some Subway sandwiches, fruit, brownies, and chips (the healthiest foods of course haha) and it was the absolute best! Maggie started getting antsy because this was her first trip to the mountains so we didn't waste much time eating before we decided to go hiking. We hiked a little ways on this path called the Tower Trail before we decided to turn around because we were all getting tired. Afterwards we hit the road again and headed to this town called San Isabel that is about 15-20 minutes from Beulah. San Isabel has a beautiful lake so we figured it would be perfect to check that out before we drove back home. Unfortunately the lake was packed with people so we didn't stay long but on our way there we stopped for some pretty wildflowers on the side of the road which made my day :) It was such a great Sunday and I can't wait to go back! I took a tonnnnn of pictures so it might take some time looking through them but I hope you enjoy them all!
