Happy Halloweenie!!!

I sit and write this as our first trick-o-treater got some great candy from us. Halloween is my favoritest holiday in the whole wide world. I am quite bummed this year by the lack of Halloween festivities I took part in. Being in Missoura we don't really know where all the cool things are. We didn't really decorate or even buy a pumpkin (tear).



The one fun thing we did do was to get Dex a great costume. Last year he was a little devil.


This year a "bad dog". I did manage to get some great pictures of him in his costume. As promised:



I am bummed that Ry and I didn't get to do anything fun or dress up. That just means I have 365 days to figure out a great costume for us next year.

Last year Ry had to work so we didn't get to do anything. I went out with some girl-friends but didn't really enjoy my thrown together costume of a school teacher bitten by a vampire.

I better get back to passing out the candy. We've had so many since I started writting about ten minutes ago. Ry had to run to the store to get more candy, we are almost out! Worst thing that could happen on Halloween.

Happy Halloween!!!!!!

Please HELP!!!

Could some of you with amazing, cute, colorful, fantastic, and fun blogs please help me make mine better? Did you guys pay for people to design your great blogs, or did you learn how to do it yourself? I just need an uplift to Dexter Morgan's Mama. Please help with any tips and tricks you can provide me with.

Thank you so very much

Dexter we're not in Minnesota anymore...

We finally made it down to Missouri after a great weekend spending time with family in Iowa. I hadn't ever spent that much time in Iowa, the best things in Iowa are Ryan's sister, Amanda, and her two kids, Isiah and Hailey. She has a great boy-friend who has a son named Ethan. He has wayyyy to much energy, but once again a great thing about Iowa. We can't forget Ryan's dad and his friend Michelle.
Growing up I wasn't that close with my dad and since he passed away when I was 11 I won't have a chance to become close with him. It's great to see Ry with his dad, I call him "Big Papa", I see where he gets some of the cute and annoying things he does.

It was great that on the way down my Mama got to come with us for the trip and stay for a week and help set up the house. She got a great flight deal for a one-way ticket back to Minneapolis for $75 bucks.

She loves Dexter A LOT, and I'm pretty sure he feels the same way about his Grandma. She was nice enough to Dexter-sit for us once we got into Springfield so we could check out the town.



Neither Ry or myself had been to Missouri before we moved down here. Its a much larger change than we had anticipated. One of the good things about Springfield is the amount of Waffle House resturants. We got into town late on a Sunday night and not much was open for din din. We had seen Waffle House in movies and tv shows before, but never actually eaten at one. So, our first night in Springfield for dinner was Waffle House. Let me tell you it was AMAZING!!!! For how cheap it is, how fast the service is and how good it was I couldn't have asked for more. ANNNDDD its open 24 hours, even better.

I'm pretty sure I got some strange looks from other customers and the servers when I busted out the camera and took some pictures of the food, but here they are. Enjoy!!!!




The pancakes are pretty much to die for. YUM! I can't wait for us to go back.

See ya Minnesota

Sorry again for such a backlog of posts. Once we moved down here I was just trying to get the house set up, painted, and pretty. I didn't blog like I should have.

So, if you don't recall, we decided to move down to Missoura to help Ry's dad. He bought the house for himself, but some things changed right around closing time, so he ended up staying in Iowa for a little longer.

We didn't have a whole lot going on up in Minnesota. With me being unemployed, we decided to move out of state at least once in our life. I was excited to cross it off the "bucket list".

So we had to say good bye to our great friends and family and started our Missouri adventure. We had an amazing going away party at a bar in Minneapolis before we left. Here are some of the faces we've been missing since we moved away.
Josh (Ry's Cousin-in Law), me and Crystal (his amazing cousin)

Two of my very favorite people, Miss Gina (the BFF), me and Kelli

Ry and his good friend Nic

Nic, me and Stacy (Ry's best-friend's fiance)

Ry and some of his softball gang

annndddd I'm back b*itches!!!!

HEEEYYY ya'll, I'm finally back on the blogging bandwagon. We finally moved down to Missouri and are mostly settled. Sorry for such a delay in postings. I've been busy stalking (numerous) other blogs. I figured I need to get back on the horse. I am going to be doing what could seem like a zillion posts I can't wait to share everything we've been up to here in Missoura (that's how the locals say it). Strange I know. Anywho "Welcome to Missoura".
