A New Dining Room Light!

As some of you may know I have wanted to replace our old dining room light since shortly after we moved in, however Tim and I have not been able to agree on one, and this has been a point of contention during various conversations (...or arguments). This past weekend Tim and I finally found a light that we agreed on and I am very happy to say it looks great. I have the before and after pics to show you!

Old Light...bleh :(

New Light, oh so pretty :)

End of Busy Season and Eddie!

5. The present: Since March 16th my life has begun to improve haha. We were given St. Patty’s Day off so my co-workers and I went to Fado’s – an Irish Pub – at nearby Easton Town Center. We had a great time and it was a lot of fun!

Also, Tim and I have a new addition to our family, and his name is Eddie. He is one of Chloe's puppies and is a lot of fun! I think Tim is still getting used to having Eddie around, but I'm sure he'll come around, as soon as the potty training improves.

With spring right around the corner we will have plenty to blog about as we are planning on having several home improvements, and there are always things going on.

Winter/Audit Busy Season

4. Mid January - Mid March: There's not much going on during these months except a whole lot of working! I worked on average 60 to 70 hours each work, topping the scale at about 85 during the 2nd week of March. I think Tim learned a lot during these months including laundry, cooking and missing me :) We also went to the NR Alumni Dance with two other couples and had a great time. This is one of the few social events I attended during the cold long hours of busy season. And if you can believe it, I actually got Tim to square dance with me, it was a lot of fun…and hard work! Mike and Stephanny called each other before work to coordinate :)
Be afraid Jenna (Look at that table, yikes!)

Square Dancing, can you believe I got Tim to actually square dance with me?!?!

The Holidays

3. December: We had a lot going on with the holidays! As soon as we got back from Hawaii, it was only 2 weeks until Xmas and we had to get a lot of shopping done. Xmas was great and it was nice getting to relax and spend time with our family. Tim and I went out with some friends in Columbus to ring in the New Year. It was an all-inclusive all you can eat and drink dinner buffet and drinks at a bar near the OSU campus. We had a great time!
