Day One Hundred & Sixty-Seven. - Spot On. - After seeing Bella scratch, and even one flea, for a good two or three days we decided to go again and give her the Flea Treament. And let me tell you she just loved being held down for this, not, but hopefully those pesky Flea's are gone for good.

Day One Hundred & Sixty-Six. - Spoiled Already. - Let's see what do we have here some Puppy Treats, Puppy Shampoo, Chew Toys, a Tennis Ball and Flea Treatment. I'd admit it my Bella is going to be spoiled rotten, just imagine when I have children, and she knows it. Oh, and don't forget the Carpet Cleaner for those puppy accidents, gotta love them.

Day One Hundred & Sixty-Five. - Dresser Drawers. - After having our new bedroom set, including a new dresser, for about a month now I decided it was about time to move my clothes from our old one to the new one. And what a better time the laundry night, right? I just love the color of the wood and how spacious the drawers are compared to our old one.

Day One Hundred & Sixty-Four. - HouseWarming Card. - While we were in Kansas visiting William's Grandmother we got the pleasure of staying with his Aunt and Uncle overnight. I wish I hadn't forgotten my camera so I could have taken photos of how beautiful Kansas is everything was so vibrant with summer color. Anyway, his Aunt and Uncle had the most beautiful house, too, that they had just had custom built. We got the stay in there basement, which was pretty much the size of our house, and it was just really a great expierence. The morning before we left his Aunt, who is such a nice lady, gave us this card for our new home. I didn't even know HouseWarming Cards existed but I was very thankful and thought it was a very nice gesture, especially since this is my first time meeting them!

Day One Hundred & Sixty-Three. - Widescreen Desktop. - I finally broke down and let William buy us a new computer since our Mac Laptop is dying slowly. Which saddens me because I've grown to love the Mac over the years, maybe one day we can afford to buy a new one. I have to say, though, that I really do love the the screen since it's so much bigger then a laptop screen, obviously, and everything looks amazing on it. Now all we need to buy is a real computer desk and a nice office chair.

Day One Hundred & Sixty-Two. - Italian Bistro Theme. - For my kitchen I've decided to have an, obviously, Bistro esque theme, and my room mate gave us these which will go perfectly with what I have planned. Now, I just have to find a place to put them!

Day One Hundred & Sixty-One. - My girl. - Just another day of taking care of my little brat. I finally got her to hold still long enough to snap this photo of us, taken outside after playing in the backyard, one of these days she will be way too big to carry around.

Day One Hundred & Sixty. - Shopping Day. - Since my room mate needed to go to the mall to buy shirts for work I decided to tag along. Recently, I've fallen in love with the Victoria Secrets perfumes and decided to get one for myself since they were having a sale. I got a pretty small bottle but it was only 4 bucks so I couldn't pass it up. I also got some of the best smelling lotion in the world, I recommend it, and ended up only spending about 10 bucks all together. I've never had real perfume, just "body spray from the local convenient stores, so this is a treat for me. `

Day One Hundred & Fifty-Nine. - My Bella. - That's right my constant nagging and begging for a puppy has finally broke my fiance down enough to where he finally caved. He always told me we could get a puppy when we got the house and now we have the house so I held him to his word. She's 6 weeks old and a Lab/Australian Shepherd mix her name is Bella. She's going to be so much fun!

Day One Hundred & Fifty-Seven. - Almost Complete. - Eight days after first starting our puzzle we have finished over half of it. What can I say, it's pretty addicting! Even William helped out a little.

Day One Hundred & Fifty-Six. - Mother in Laws. - Since we haven't been to William's Mothers house it quiet sometime we decided to make a trip out there to visit, and address invitations, which is always enjoyable. Of course the boys argued over computer parts, and other nerdy things, while the girls address invitations and looked through old wedding photos. The best thing about his Mother's house is just sitting around talking, and laughing, and enjoying each others company.

Day One Hundred & Fifty-Five. - Dinner For One. - The only thing that I dislike about our new home is that it's so far away from William's work that he no longer is able to come home for "lunch/dinner". I will say, though, that these were some pretty damn good porkchops and I wish he could have eaten them as soon as they were out of the oven.

Day One Hundred & Fifty-Four. - Yet Another Ceiling Fan. - This ceiling fan we decided to put up in the living room because, honestly, it was getting a bit stuffy in there. Although it's not William's favorite he still let me choose the living room fan and I picked this one. For me I think it's very pretty and will look even better once we have the living room decorated, my Aunt and Uncle thinks it looks "classy". Three against one, can't beat that.

Day One Hundred & Fifty-Three. - Green Necklace. - Just a little something I picked up for myself while shopping at Target. I'm finding, these days, that I'm wanting more and more accessories, i.e - necklaces, bracelets, earrings, etc., but I keep reverting back to the same "safe" colors instead of trying the more bold patterns and colors.

Day One Hundred & Fifty-Two. - Tasty Summer Treat. - On Father's Day my family decided to come up and visit us, and see the house, and I offered to cook lunch for my Dad. It's probably the first time my parents have ever seen me cook a real meal so of course they were pretty excited and decided to take pictures while I was cooking, I cooked beef tips and mashed potatoes. After lunch we opened up a couple of Watermelon and stood around the island in the kitchen at ate them. It was really nice to spend time with my family and do something special for my Dad, I think it's better then any silly little gift I could have bought him.

Day One Hundred & Fifty-Four. - Beautiful Music. - For as long as William and I have been together I've been begging him to get a Acoustic guitar because I love the way the sound. Well his friend was interested in some music equipment that William had so they traded that for the guitar. I think it's a beautiful guitar and it sounds even prettier. I can not explain how excited I am for him to have this now. And I'm pretty much in love with this photo, probably one of the best I've taken, not to gloat or anything.

Day One Hundred & Fifty-Three. - A Beautiful Puzzle. - My room mate brought a puzzle with her when she moved into the house and we decided to start it together. Call me a nerd but I was pretty excited to put it all together especially considering how beautiful picture on the box is. Hopefully it won't take us too long to finish it.

Day One Hundred & Fifty-One. - Throw Pillow. - It's unusual that I couldn't get the actual color of this pillow. The real color is a Aqua type color not a grey-ish blue and it's just a simple throw pillow that we use to make our bed look fancy.

Day One Hundred & Fifty. - Method Cleaners. - As we were shopping at Target we decided to pick up some Shower Cleaner that could be used daily. And since I'm on a "eco friendly" kick, as my fiance likes to put it, I decided that I would give Method a try. Unfortunately, they didn't have my usual Seventh Generation Cleaners but I've heard good reviews about Method and so far it seems to be working. Even though, I believe, Target is more expensive I do give them props for having Natural Cleaners and even some Organic Foods.

Day One Hundred & Forty-Nine. - Upgraded to a Queen. - Since we decided not to buy Living Room furniture per our original plan we decided to get all new Bedroom furniture and a new mattress. The one thing that we looked for was being able to sit against our headboard comfortably. And as you can tell this new bedroom set has two, comfy, black cushions. I also am in love with the dark wood and our brand new night stands. It really does make me rather excited for decorating our room as well.

Day One Hundred & Forty-Eight. - The Alternative to a Dyson. - Yes, that's right we decided against buying the Dyson because, for now, it was just beyond our budget. Good thing I did reviews on other Vacuum Cleaners and come across this one which is suppose to be one of the best on the market. It will be nice not having to use bags anymore, I'll tell you that.

Day One Hundred & Forty-Seven. - Wall Art. - Our room mate, my good friend, gave us this painting for our kitchen. Since my theme is "Italian Bistro" I thought it fit perfectly. It is also the first painting we nailed into our walls at the house. Pretty nice to be able to hang whatever I want anytime I want to.

Day One Hundred & Forty-Six. - The Beauty of Buildings. - We met our photographer downtown to shoot our Engagement Portraits which was a lot of fun and I can't wait to see how they turned out. After leaving I tried to get a few shots of downtown just as the sun was setting. I'm pretty surprised that this photo came out so well since I was shooting from inside the car. I just love the way the clouds look and that the sky is so blue.

Day One Hundred & Forty-Five. - Window Coverings for Back Door. - While we were at Lowe's looking at the traditional mini-blinds to go on our sliding glass patio door we were asking the lady for help and she suggested these cloth "mini-blinds". Considering that they were about half the price of our original idea we decided to go ahead and get them. What a great choice, it looks fantastic in our kitchen. And they will probably last much longer then the flimsy old plastic ones.

Day One Hundred & Forty-Four. - First HouseWarming Gift. - Not the greatest picture but at least you get an idea of what it looks like. My, dear, mother bought us a lovely little mantel clock for our home. One problem : We don't have a mantel anymore because the idea of having a fireplace, that cost extra, wasn't something we wanted. So, the lovely little mantel clock got put above our kitchen counters, obviously, and I have to say that it looks rather nice up there. Good job, Mom.

Day One Hundred& Forty-Three. - First Shower. - I have to admit that although I am a fan of the separate tub/shower combo, I'm not a huge fan of our "standard" size shower. It's a good thing William and I, really, like being around one another, eh?

Day One Hundred & Forty-Two. - Happy Birthday, Van! - I can't believe that my little brother, who once was short and rather annoying, is all grown up now. Twenty years old. Of course he was embarrassed by my Mother and myself who were snapping as many pictures as we possibly could while was unwrapping his gifts. We ended up going to dinner a restaurant that his girlfriend waitresses at so she spent a lot of time over at our table talking with my parents. I'm really glad that he was in the states and that we were able to celebrate his birthday with him.
I'm finally in the right month! :)
