We bought a house in February!

In March I went on a week long camping trip to Arkansas with my dad and relatives. Complete with four wheeling, backpacking, and washing my hair with rain water!

Brad and I traveled to Miami in May for his company vacation!

In May we also traveled to Lubbock for Brad's brother's graduation and proposal to his long time girlfriend Samantha!!!

At the end of May we traveled to San Antonio for our 2 year anniversary. Visited the river walk and Sea World for the first time!!

After school got out in June, we took our annual Scarborough family beach vacation to Orange Beach, AL!!

During the summer we went on a spontaneous camping trip to lake Texoma!

In July I got a sewing machine and taught myself to sew!

In September we traveled to Nebraska for the Southern Miss vs. Nebraska game!! We also visited with great friends!!

During the fall Brad and I made it to EVERY Oklahoma State home game in Stillwater!!

In November we hosted our first Thanksgiving at our new house!!

When December came around we decorated for Christmas and put lights up on the house!!

We also attended Brad's company Christmas party!!

...and I completed one half of my first year teaching Kindergarten!!

....we got our first "blizzard" on Christmas!! Which made for a very relaxing day of spending time with our families!!

...and to end the year 2012 we are watching a movie at home with the fireplace keeping us cozy!!!

Don't worry, we're starting 2013 off with a bang!! We are getting up early and heading to Dallas to cheer on our OSU Cowboys at our bowl game!!! GO POKES!!!!

OH MY...our apartment is a mess... a total disaster! We are moving in one week and everything is everywhere. We are officially homeowners as of yesterday but have one more week in our apartment. This week will be crazy with work, but I am excited for the move!

Big changes in the future...

Well it's safe to announce... We are moving!

We got notice from our apartment that we needed to re-sign our lease before January 2nd to get the locked in low rate. Well, we had already discussed the possibility of buying a house. So we started running through our options of re-signing versus house purchasing. We decided with the new pricier rate of staying in our apartment our best option would be to find a house and find if fast. Well fortunately that is exactly what happened! We looked at 8 houses in one day(sunday)and immediately fell in love with one! We put an offer in on Monday and after some counter offering we settled on a price Wednesday. The house was inspected Saturday and now everything is set. We close on the house February 24th so if all goes well between now and then we will be moving into our new home on February 25th.

We are very excited to be moving into our new home and we were surprisingly blessed with a quick and simple home buying process!

We are not looking forward to the packing up and moving process especially after our multiple moves last year:( but I guess it's better to know we are packing up and moving for the last time (at least for several years)!!

Once we move in I will post pics!
