Nathan and I went house hunting last weekend. We toured this one ranch styled home. It had many things that I loved, and many that I didn't. The few things that were awesome though were SO awesome that it's totally worth it. Except for the fact that it is out of our price range. Daaaang. But let me share them with you.

That's a built in oven....and it's teal!
the countertop stove is also the same color!
Nathan and I really really like the neighborhood these houses are in. And we wanted to get an idea of the houses in the area. So we thought we should check this one out. In the picture it looks disgusting. I know. But in person it is so cool! How many people can say they have original retro oven and stovetops. and they are in mint condition. You can tell the elderly couple who lived here really loved their home.

I'm not much of a cook though. I'm more of a "primper". I could spend hours in the bathroom getting ready. So naturally the biggest thing to me is looking at the bathroom. This one had a beautiful black and grey tile and countertop. Then a pink sink, tub, and toilet. The pink would have to go. It's not classy. Then I found this. I saw it and literally yelled "Naaaathan!!! Come here! NOW!" He came running in like I was falling off a cliff dying. Probably thought I found something horrid. Nope I found this baby:

That's a toilet paper roll holder.
With a built in radio tuner/volume control
Genius? Awkward? Both.
Still awesome.

Lastly it had two kitchens. One upstairs and one downstairs. Downstairs we'd have to add a bar. Not just because we like our booze, but also so I can host Thanksgiving. Have to have somewhere to spread out all of those dishes! I'm pretty dead set on hosting. Nathan's even been helping me learn to cook so I'm ready! I cooked a lot of yummy foods last week. Even made myself a frozen pizza tonight, with no help. And it turned out perfect. Anyway, yes, this house had two kitchens.

Just Call Us Match Makers.

I've noticed I won't blog for awhile and then BAM! in one night I'll write like 10 posts. I'm not sure why I do it this way. Doesn't seem very logical to me. Then again, "Logical" has never been accused of being my middle name either though, sooooo...yeah.

Friday Nathan and I went to an ugly sweater party. We met up with Nathalie and Derek, who is Nathan's best friend from high school. Turns out Nathalie and Derek have some chemistry! Ow ow! They were dancin' and mackin' on each other all night long!

Saturday, Nathan and I woke up to a text message that I'm still laughing about:

"remember that time I went out with you and ended up making out with your girlfriend's best friend? yeah, that was awesome".

Maybe Nate and I can add superstar matchmakers to our ever-growing list of stuff we rock at.

Guys Like Me - Eric Church

Have I told you guys how awesome of a boyfriend I have? Oh, I have? A lot? Get over it. That's because he's the best. I got my Christmas present from him a little early. I'm pretty sure it's the most amazing thing ever. First, I need to tell you all that three of my all time favorite country songs are as follows: Even If It Breaks Your Heart by Eli Young Band, You and Tequila by Kenny Chesney, and Springsteen by none other than my very favorite singer Eric Church. Turns out all three of them are preforming a concert together. And Nathan got us tickets! As if that wasn't perfect enough we have floor tickets! Saaaay whaaatttt!! But I'm not done yet! In order to get there we have to do one of my favorite things we do together. ROADTRIP!! And really good friend that moved away to the west coast is flying in, going to the concert with us, and then going out with us afterwards! He knows me so well!

Nathan and I have a lot of  "our" songs. But the majority of them are Eric Church songs. Let's take this one for example.

I wear a greasy ball cap   Greasy hardly covers it
I like my shirt untucked   True.
I spend Saturdays working on my truck Yeup, he sure does. No fail.
I don't like to fight Uh huh. But I ain't scared to bleed Nope.
Most don't mess with a guy like me Badass.

'Cause guys like me drink too many beers on Friday after work If it's Friday, just assume I'm DD
Our best blue jeans have skoal rings Which I findly oddly attractive
We wear our boots to church Him and his damn boots. He thinks he needs another pair, by the way.
So rough around the edges
It's hard to believe
That girls like you
Love guys like me Awww, yes I do.
Your daddy worked at the bank Mom, actually. Mine worked on cars Well, ok, not so much this line.
You went to college
Sure did.
I pulled graveyards He sure does You must have had your pick
Of all the trust fund types
But you came back to me and only God knows why Because I love you

[Repeat Chorus]

Now there's a lot of guys like me out there
In a lot of little towns
And tellin' all our buddies, we won't ever settle down He did say that before he knew me. Was 6 years strong into it too!
We say thats just the way we are and the way we'll always be You mean, until I came along.
So God sends girls like you for guys like me
Thank God there's girls like you, for guys like me AWWW

Do You Have a Five?

So I was pretty sick this Sunday.
I had a drunk night downtown.
Which turned into not wanting to be done at 2 AM.
So Nate and I came home, continued drinking.
Strip go fish.

Unless you are my parents or grandparents.
In which case:

So I was pretty sick this Sunday.
I had a calm night in reading a book.
Which turned into not wanting the book to end.
So Nate and I bought the book, continued reading.
Footed pajamas and turtle necks.
Hot Apple Cider.

In either version, I slept until 2 PM. Nathan bought me my favorite candy and flavored water. How he didn't get hungover the flu is beyond me. I seriously was only out of bed yesterday to either A) throw up B) get more water C)Shower D) Make soup. I didn't even get out of bed to tell Nathan goodbye when he left for work that evening. Yeup. Class act. Good thing the whole world knows it now too.
