Annnd I'm Back.

Whew. If you're wondering if I forgot about you, well, I did. There have only been a few times in the past few days where I thought to myself "Hmm I should probably write a post tonight..."

Sorry dudes!!!

I am back in Florida, though! My Mom and I drove down last Friday. The drive wasn't bad at all, other than the fact that we stopped literally almost every hour to pee. We got to the house, dropped off some of my stuff, went to dinner, then headed to the hotel. We found a nice hotel just a few miles from our house, so my Mom and I just relaxed in the big ol' King size bed and took advantage of the 5,000 movie channels on the tube. It was fun! On Saturday me, Adam, and my Mom went over to Adam's parents house where (mostly) everyone met for the first time! Adam's Dad, Uncle, & sister were in Gainesville at the football game. So it was just his Mom and his Aunt! Everything went smoothly. I don't think they thought my Mom was too redneck. HA. Just kidding. We went out to dinner at Outback where I ate a ridiculous amount of food, but what's new?

On Sunday we went to Cracker Barrel where my Mom got to meet Adams dad! Now all that's left is for my Dad, and the rest of the fam to meet all of his! My Mom flew out of Tampa that afternoon, I was one sad little pup! But, Adam and I are driving (or maybe flying) to Bama for the LSU game on November 7th. So it won't be too long before I get to see my Mom and Dad again!

Things have been pretty boring so far here in FL! Our days consist of waking up, working out, eating, and watching the Angels play in the playoffs! We've gone over to Adams parents house a few times for dinner so that's been really nice!

Oh snap, please let me tell you about our new favorite thing. The French Press. It has saved my life. It's a coffee maker that is perfect for us since we are always moving. Thank you sweetbabyJesus!! All you do it scoop the coffee into the bottom, pour boiling water in the pitcher thing-ma-jig, let it sit for 4 minutes, then drink! It took us a few tried to figure out the right amount of coffee to use, but we've finally figured it out. And I have fallen in love.



Also please might I ad that for the first time in my entire 23 years of life..I clipped coupons. Yes, that's right..coopins. I am now an avid coupon clipper and I swear, I don't think I've ever been so excited about grocery shopping. Allow me to explain. Ahem.

So I just slightly mentioned to Adam about clippin' coopins (coupons, however you like to say it, I just find it more fun to say coopins). Ever since I mentioned how much we could save, he jumped all over the idea of it. So there I was, scoping our Coupons.com, RedPlum.com, and SmartSource.com. I was printing coupons like it was my job. Then off we were to Publix. Oh boy, what I hadn't prepared myself for was the actual shopping for these groceries. You have to be really organized, I was flipping through coupons which eventually were scattered throughout my purse. Anywho..we get everything we needed, go to check out, I handed the cute ol' lady the coupons and she starts scanning away. I had to contain myself of the excitement though. Because, what I wanted to do was jump up and down, clap my hands like a 13 year old girl at the Backstreet Boys concert, and scream every time I glanced down at how much we Adam was saving! But..I didn't. Instead I went on and on and on to the cashier about how this was our first time clipping coupons so I didn't know if we did everything right blah blah blah. This woman must have thought I was absolutely crazy. I am. Anyways..we saved $36 though! I would say it was a success!

Ok well, I would love to keep writing, but Grey's Anatomy just came on. Priorities!!!!!!
