We Made an Offer...

on a house! It is pretty exciting and stressful all at once. We have been house hunting for about 4 weeks and we finally found one we liked and could afford, after seeing about 20+ houses. Now we pretty much wait. It is a foreclosure and owned by the bank so it may take a while to hear back on it. In the mean time we keep our fingers crossed. Bob (Matt's dad) drove out on Saturday to look at the house with us and then zipped home on Sunday. We had a lot of fun, I taught him how to play roulette, I think he's a natural!
School is going pretty well about half way through this semester. I will be glad when this semester is over and hopefully we have our house and we can go up to Washington for Christmas. I just want things to go smoothly right on into the new year. Dad's birthday is on Friday, Halloween! The weather has been pretty nice here. It is cool in the mornings but warms up after that. Not a whole lot else going on.

A wedding Weekend

So the Toste-Irelan wedding was a complete success. The bride showed up and said yes so that was a good start. Her dress was beautiful, the lodge was gorgeous and even the weather cleared up. We had a bit of a snow scare the day before, like it snowed about and inch in Reno. But the sun shined and it was great. Here are a few pictures. Jazzy will have the professional ones back in about 2 weeks and I'm sure she will post some. Just a credit to my self. I thought the flowers turned out great. I made all the bouquets and boutonnieres and the arrangements. It was fun, I could do that kind of stuff for a living!
