yeah....I am loving it. Off of work at 2pm today. Then it's off to pack, finish a gift for our niece, make a quick trip to Joann's for some Christmas decorations, and then it's off to St. George for a few days. Thanksgiving weekend, here. I. come. :)

You feel it? I LOVE this feeling. The feeling of love everywhere...the feeling that no one could make me unhappy today no matter what they tried to do. The feeling of peace, happiness, hope.

We are now in our new home! We don't have everything moved from the apartment to the house yet, but we've got the essentials, so we're good for now until we find time this weekend maybe to move the couch/tv/and other big items in the kitchen.
We. Are. LOVING. the house! And we lose each other in it because it feels SO big in comparison to our apartment. At first I felt a little uneasy about the location, not knowing very much at all about the area of town, but after living there for a few days now I feel so safe it's ridiculous.
I took loads of pictures of the apartment before packing up, and of the house, but the camera is currently M.I.A. so when I find it in this move I'll post some "before and after" living quarters for Jamison and Amy Pruitt.
Funny story: Sunday we went to "our" ward for the first time, and finally when we could introduce ourselves as "The Pruitts" instead of people knowing me by my maiden name, Jamison goes ahead and says, "Well, I'm Jamison Pruitt, and this is my wife - Amy Ferne....ugh...err...Pruitt." nice jamison....nice....
We're loving it so far! Good thing too, because I was really really nervous that the transition would be a hard one for me, but we love it. It's really nice to start fresh with my hubby.
By the way - made dinner last night on our stove - i'm in Heaven. And so is Jamison because he finally gets nice warm and yummy food. Nothing better than homemade goodies.
Pictures to come shortly. As for now - I've got TONS more moving to do. Later!

Today was the day to get the keys to the house, and as excited as I was, I could NOT wait until after work to get them, so on my way to work I stopped by and got the key, showed my mom around in the house briefly, and went to work with the longing to stay at the house and get things moved already.
Jamison stopped by during his lunch break, unable to get in, but also just longed to get in already....and make the house our home.
I'm just SO excited! And I can't wait to decorate the house for Christmas and the fall, and light yummy scented candles, and really make the place feel warm and cozy...which is where the fireplace will come in handy.
It's just such a cute house with a lot of charm, and we're excited to get in tonight and start this next chapter in our lives. The apartment was a much needed blessing, and served its purpose, and we're so grateful to have had it. And we're ready to move on....to a new home and new ward/stake. Exciting!!! I promise that pictures will come up soon. Of the apartment and the house. :)
YAY! I'm a happy girl. We are SO blessed.

SO SOOO excited about Thanksgiving this year, being our first year together/married. we will be going up to St. George Wednesday night after work and spend through Thursday night with Jamison's parents/family. And we plan to spend the rest of the weekend with my family here in Vegas.
It might sound weird but I feel like a grown up going to the "in-laws" for a family gathering. And I'm so stoked about what to bring, it's between these options:
1. homemade pumpkin roll (2 or 3)
2. 4 layer pumpkin cake
3. drinks IN a pumpkin (such a cute idea I wanna try sometime, easy and cute)
4. or just forget the pumpkin all together and just bring a couple homemade lasagnas.
5. OR homemade YUMMY sugar cookies like those from this website.
Decisions decisions. Still deciding...
