Things I love about our new town!

A few reasons why I am LOVING Ohio...
1.  $5 pizza from Little Ceasars (has saved us a few times from cooking!) 
2. $1.77 per lb of boneless skinless chicken breast!!!
3.  The house across the street from us is in great livable condition for sale for $27,500! 
4. Aldi's (love the prices of cheese, milk and spaghetti sauce!)
5.  Target is like 5 minutes away (instead of 40-50 minutes!)
6.  The street I live on is adorable.  Kids playing in the street and 2 cops live 2 houses away(i feel safe)
7.  More ROOM!  I love living in a house again
8.  The people I have met are really nice (not that they weren't nice in NH but it's nice to feel welcomed here)
9.  So many parks within walking distance or just a short drive
10.  My mail comes right to my door and if I have to ship something they pick it up. I know that might sound weird but if you have young kids I am sure you understand!

A few reasons I miss NH....
1.  My friends and family (it's nice having family here as well I just wish NH wasn't so far)
2.  The lakes....It's not even summer but I miss driving and seeing water
3.  The view from our condo...revert back to #2
4.  Knowing where everything is and the back roads to where ever
5.  Friends and Family I am saying it again.  Last night I had a bit of homesickness.  I received some exciting news from a good friend and it made me stop and think everyone is moving on with out me.  I know that sounds diva like and stupid.  I know that people don't just pause their life for me but it just makes me feel how far I am now.  I use to being involved with my friends lives and now I sometimes feel like I am on the sidelines and if you know me personally I am not a sideline type of girl.  I know my family is prepping their Thanksgiving plans and it makes me sad that we will miss it.  Don't even get me started about the girls first birthday.  I am sure I will be a crying mess on that day for many reasons. 
I guess thats all for now.  Can't wait to post Halloween pics of the girls in their costumes:)

More pic...

losing it!


OMG we made it!!!

Wow, we have been super crazy busy since we arrived in Ohio!  Unpacking, getting the girls back in their schedules and figuring out how to get to the supermarket with out a GPS!  In the middle of all this craziness the girls turned 10 months and Aria finally crawled!  Well I wouldn't call it a crawl so much as a slide kind of.  I will try to post a video because it is hysterical!  We also went apple picking and pumpkin picking for the first time.  We are slowing adjusting to our new life and LOVE having more room.  I also love having a ton of stores just a few miles away.  There are a lot of stores that I have never heard of here but have fallen in love with.   There are also a lot of stores I am dying to go in and explore but haven't had the time to yet.  We have been busy this week preparing for my 7 year old niece's birthday.   I am excited we finally get to celebrate with this part of our family.

 I have also been thinking about the big 1!!!  I can't believe the girls birthday is coming up!  I think I have nailed it down to a Winter ONEderland theme!  Pink, silver and white with glitter!  I think it will be a hard day for a few reasons.  The first being my girls are growing so fast and it makes me sad:(  The second is I know I am really going to miss friends and family on that day!  I know my family especially will be sad to miss it.  We have come such a long way and it will be sad to not have most of our support system for that big day.  I will be glad to have the family we have here to help us celebrate.  Anyway, I will end with some pictures and hopefully a video.
