Usually when people are gone from the blogging world they come back with exciting news.
I have no exciting news. It's just been one of those seasons of life where I have been crazy busy and don't really have anything blog worthy to talk about.
Nothing even worthy of a Weekly Weekend Update. How sad is that?
I have been crazy busy with work events and all of the house-hunting we have been doing.
We are trying to take advantage of the first time home buyer tax credit so we need to find a home ASAP.
I was supposed to meet a very special blog friend this weekend, but ultimately Luke and I decided that we don't have too many Saturday's left before the tax credit ends, so we needed to spend that Saturday looking at houses. I was only a little bitter.
I am not lying when I tell you that we drove around for nine hours house hunting. NINE. HOURS.
We could have driven to Alaska and back in that time.
It is obvious that Luke and I have different views of what a 'first time' home looks like. I have beautiful neighborhoods with a park and pool pictured, and don't forget those brick mail boxes that line the curbs.
I have quickly learned that is not what Luke has pictured.
This is one place where he took us on Saturday:
Do you see brick Mailboxes?
Do you see a park?
Wait, do you see ANY sign of civilization?? NO! He took me to dirt roads in the middle of nowhere.
All I could do was laugh, and of course take a picture.
This might be a long process.
Also, I have to share with you the best iPhone application ever.
It is a Starbucks app and it is amazing.
It will locate stores that are close by, and walks you through building your favorite drink and allows you to store it, so if you will never forget your favorite 'mixes'.
