We finally set up our tree! It's small, but it works. Hopefully next year we can get a bigger one.  


So Sam's has these giant dogs...

The best part of the holidays = leftover dessert.  My pumpkin pie is amazing. 


We've been taking care of Caylaloku's rats the last few days. They're so sweet. Black Friday was pretty hectic, but I'm glad I didn't have to go to work at 4 AM.

Our first Thanksgiving as a married couple! We went to Maggiano's for dinner (which was awesome - so much food) and I made an amazing pumpkin pie. Now we are going to watch Christmas Vacation. 


Getting ready for Thanksgiving! I can't wait until I have a real kitchen table and can host a real dinner. My parents will be in Denton late tonight to spend Thursday with us.

Today was a date day. I didn't have work so after dropping Cayla off at the train station Trey and I went to see the new Harry Potter movie, went shopping, then came home to make quesadillas

We started cleaning up the apartment for Thanksgiving. This holiday season will definitely be different from any others we've had before, but we're making the most of it. 


Saints won! Our usual Sunday Saints Night was interrupted by Emily's work, but we were still happy that they won and celebrated accordingly.

Today we met Trey's mom, sister, and grandma in Garland to go Christmas shopping at the Firewheel mall. Hooray for holidaytime!!!

Laundry and fish sticks, woohoo. Going to work at 5 really messes up our meal times. 


We were pretty lazy today. Trey isn't feeling 100% so we took it easy. Before I went to work we went for a walk around downtown and browsed around some of the junk shops. 


A new Five Guys/Del Taco opened up in Denton and since we've never been to one, we decided to try it out. It was really good, they even have a veggie sandwich (well, it's a burger minus the burger, haha). We got the Cajun fries and they were pretty spicy. Tasty, but spicy.

We had a hankerin' for some stuffed crust pizza so we went to the store and got a frozen pizza, garlic bread & I made a tasty marinara sauce. Mmmmmm...


I don't have work tomorrow so we stayed up late to have a Pauly Shore & Brendan Fraser movie marathon. Coffee, RC Cola, and queso. We make the best queso.


It has been quite cold the past few days.  We have all been compensating by snuggling up together on the couch.

No work today, which means I got to cook dinner and enjoy an evening with Trey! Marinated salmon, salad, cheesy broccoli, and potato salad. Mmmmm...


Between Trey's interviews and my late shift we squeezed in a bit of relaxing park time. 


Today we got stuff done. We did some house hunting around town, got Trey's car inspected, went to Sam's (5lbs of carrots and a ton of veggie burgers on the cheap), and made quesadillas for dinner. I'm excited about moving into a bigger place; we still have a lot of searching to do though.

Cayla and Kaleo came over to cook lunch together and watch the Saints win, then we played board games all afternoon. 


Sorry for the late updates; working until midnight kind of gets in the way of things. I like my job so far though, I can channel my OCD into something productive and get paid for it. Other than work nothing new has really happened. 


My wedding ring finally got back from being resized and our drivers licenses came in the mail with our new addresses and new name. I guess we are "official" now. Now Tilly waits by the door for her mom to get off work.

Today is our second monthaversary!

Trey surprised me with flowers and ice cream when I got home from work, he is the best husband ever!

Hello friends & family, this post is a blatant plug for my Etsy store. Recently Cayla and I started a joint Etsy account to sell cool vintage treasures we find called; it's called The Raccoon Club. 

Click here to visit The Raccoon Club store!

We plan to start making things eventually, but for the time being we're just selling vintage things. This is an Enid Collins purse that I have not put in the store yet. I believe it is fairly old so I want to learn more about it and see if I can find out how old it actually is.

It was so cold and rainy today, the cats have been napping forever. But they do that anyways, even when it's not cold, haha. Also, today was my first day of work, woohoo.

We spent all afternoon at the park today, it was so nice out. I love this cool fall weather. Since it is all we own, we used a our kickball to play basketball, soccer, and volleyball - haha. Now we're about to make popcorn and watch a scary movie. 


Happy Halloween! 
Nathan, Jesse, and Dani all came for the festivities, we hadn't seen them since the wedding. Cayla made us a yummy dinner, then we all went to see our friends' band play.
