Offer Accepted!!!!

They accepted our offer!!! Now we have to put earnest money down and sign the contract. On to appraisals and home inspections. I can't wait to move in!

I'm a Big Kid Now...

Holy Moly, we're putting an offer down on a condo today. Hopefully they'll accept and we'll purchase our first house together! This is so nerve wracking! I'll keep everyone posted on any new information.
Also, I've downloaded pics form Christmas so those should be posted later on tonight.
Everyone keep your fingers crossed we get the house!!

Good Morning Sunshine!

I still can't believe it but I was at Starbucks at 7:15 this morning! If you know me you know that I'm not a morning person. I get to work at nine and usually on the weekends sleep til ten or eleven if I have nothing to do! So you might be wondering why the heck were you up that early well....My little Sis was in town and I had to visit!!
McKenleigh moved to St. Louis awhile back so when she's in town I always like to get together and catch up. Talking on the phone isn't as fun as cracking up laughing face to face! There are definitely some interesting characters at Starbucks early in the morning, right Mac?? I love catching up with here it always seems like we never left off! We've had our ups and downs like any friendship but I think that's what keeps it going strong. She cracks me up because she tells it like it is and I love her for that. We definitely balance each other out!

I can't believe Christmas is 3 days away. I'm still shopping for people. This year since Jared and I are trying to save for a house we decided we would just get everyone something small and not get each other anything. Therefore I have procrastinated. Luckily I know what I'm getting everyone I just need to actually go out and purchase the items!

Also, today is my Cousin Andrew's Birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANDREW!!! We Love YOU!!! He's in the Air force and is stationed in Minot, ND. So when he comes in town it's a big deal! I'm so glad we'll all get to celebrate Christmas together!

Make-up Help

So, I'm stuck in a rut. I think I have used the same Clinique pressed powder since High School. Now that I'm getting older I think I need something with a little more coverage.
I've also stopped tanning so I want something that will brighten my face and prevent it from looking dull. I'm definitely not one to pick out my own colors or products. I usually do best with someone else picking it out. Does anyone have any suggestions of products or somewhere to go? I've heard good things about Merle Norman???

Also, what do y'all use for cleaning your face and moisturizer? I've been using Oil of Olay Regenerist but I need something to minimize my pores. Any help would be appreciated!!!

Go Tigers Go!

Happy Wednesday! Last night was a lazy night at the Franks Household. We watched the Grizzles beat the Cavaliers in Ovetime and then I fell asleep..pretty exciting, huh? I woke up this morning to the sound of huge windgusts. The temperature is 20 degrees cooler today than yesterday. If it's going to be December I want cold weather.
Tonight the Tigers are playing at home not sure who were playing but I will definitely be there! This season we've been very lucky to have Suite Tickets for every game thanks to Jared's new company. I love watching the Tigers and especially their Head Coach Josh Pastner! Hopefully we'll pull off a win. Hope everyone has a good Wednesday!

So now that my life is getting back to normal I figured I should update the blog. I'm officially Mrs. Jared Franks. We've been married a little over a month and I can honestly say it's been Wonderful! Jared makes me so happy and I'm a lucky girl to be married to my best friend. I'm still waiting on wedding pictures. Once I get them I will make sure and post them. Quick Question how do I make my pictures larger on here?

Now that the wedding is over I'm just trying to get back in shape (you would have thought I would have done that for the wedding but I didn't), hopefully get registered for school next semester, and maybe buy a house who knows???

Right now it's rainy and cold in Memphis so I'm thinking tonight is going to be spent curled up on the couch writing thank-you notes. Pretty Exciting!
