This is what my babies are doing right now.
They melt my heart.

Last night Jayson and I went on our first date after Ember
had been born. We went and saw The Dark Knight Rises.
It was at the cheap theater!
I can wait a month to see a movie for three dollars.

It was so nice. Jays and I got to talk and have an actual 
conversation with out changing a dirty diaper or getting a sippy cup. Both things I love to do...but it was nice to 
have Jays all for myself.

We started talking about moving for grad school.
The house size loan were going to have to be taking out.
How were going to have to live on love basically. haha

I really thought about don't laugh...
but how fun it is to be a poor collage family.

We do silly things like have one set of batteries for 
both remotes and just exchange them as we need them.

It doesn't really bother me. It a chapter.
The next one will be even harder.
At least right now Jays works part time.
 Well if you can even call it that. Its more like quarter time.
but it works.
We haven't had to take out any loans yet.

I actually feel blessed.
We have everything we need.
A house, a car, our kids have clothes on their
backs, fresh diapers and full tummys.


But the school we really want to get into the tuition
each year is like buying a new car.

A nice new car.

Kinda scary.
It's been on my mind a lot.

Any of you in graduate school?
Or were in grad school?
How did/do you survive...?


  1. Adorable photos! New follower via the Friday blog hop! I'd love for you to stop by mine. :)


  2. We are in our last year of grad school right now. And yes things are tight, we are blessed to be living in a basement apartment for way cheap which is very helpful. We are surviving it is hard sometimes but i just cant help but love this stage at the same time because of the same things you said we live off love and it is just a stage. I am actually quite scared to get out into the real world of real jobs and out of the student phase for good. Loans are scary but they will get paid off and it is so worth it in the end. You guys will be great. Ty and I still havent been on a date since holden as been born hopefully for my birthday in the next two weeks. Where are you guys wanting to go to school? What is you hubby going to school for?


thanks for putting a smile on my face today with your comment:)
