- Pots and pans
- A BEAUTIFUL watch
- a new North Face jacket
- a new camera
- a toaster
- SO many gift cards
- two perfumes
- a garnet ring
- A Rachel Ray cookbook!
- A knife set
- a video game (idk the name of it, but I have a feeling he will be glued to the tv until school starts)
- gift cards galore
- a scarf, gloves, and a hat
- some books
- a new wallet
- a movie
Like I said, we got so much stuff and we feel so blessed. I think the gift cards were the most fun gifts because we have been shopping ALL WEEK LONG and have gotten so much new stuff. There is officially no more room for anything in my room or car. We are going to have fun moving it all, I'm sure. :)

But Caleb and I have SO MUCH to do between now and New Years, I'm just trying to make sure everything gets taken care of before the move. My room has been taken over by Christmas presents and things for the apartment. I'll be so glad when everything can have a place in the apartment and I won't have to live in this clutter anymore!

So goodbye Ole Miss. Thanks for the good times and all the memories. Just because I'm not graduating from Ole Miss doesn't mean that I won't always be a Rebel. Hotty Toddy!

I've been writing a final paper all day and night, which I thought I would get done by 5:00PM, or at least hoping I would, because that was when it was due. Thankfully my professor has a pretty lenient late policy. I never learn anything from my past experiences. I tell myself, every time I have a paper due, to start at least a week ahead, but every time I end up doing it the night before. Ugh... Such is being a college student though, I suppose.
Anyway, Only two more tests and then it's goodbye to Ole Miss and hello to Delta State.
Just wanted to write a quick blog to let the world know that I'm still here.
Back to my paper.

I'm going to make a running list of things that I need to buy in the next month. I hope we don't get down there and realize we have no forks or something silly like that. :)
- Bed spread
- Spray paint (for repainting some decorations)
- Cleaning supplies!!!
- Shower Head
- Toilet Seat
- Toothbrush holder
- Shower rack
- Casserole dish
- Table cloth
- Table decoration
- Cleaning supplies
- Trash can
- Mop and Broom
- Organizing supplies for the desk
- Picture frames
- Storage containers
I'm sure the list will continuously grow over the next month. Guess my next task is to come up with a budget.

Ok, I just have to put this up. My mom has always loved the Colts, so I come from a Colt loving household. It's in my blood or something. I love the Colts, Caleb loves the Colts, and when we have babies, they will love the Colts and it will be in their blood (or something like that). Anyway, Peyton is the stuff. And they just played an awesome game against the Patriots. 35-34 and it was a glorious win. That makes them 9-0 for the season. Amazing.
Ok, I'm done now.
Taking measurement...doing manly things
Nicole and I visited our little apartment today (She'll be posting some pictures a little later). I'm still excited. :) But Nicole doesn't exactly share my excitement. Yea the place isn't perfect. It's a little old and dusty, but I think it's going to be great. It just needs a little love and a lot of cleaning.
We found this neat application on some furniture website where you can lay out your rooms so we did that and got it all worked out. We discovered that our queen sized bed is going to take up most of our little bed room. Ha. But that's okay. We'll make do.
Looking forward to Thanksgiving break. Our professors decided to weigh us down before we get out to make up for the whole week of class we'll be missing I guess. Only four more weeks, including Thanksgiving and finals, until we are out of school. Then we just have to worry about moving to Cleveland.
Until next time.

I love my mom. She has started buying/rounding up all kinds of kitchen supplies for us. Today she bought us...
- http://www.kayotic.nl/blog/?p=3708- Ok, this has all of my favorite things wrapped together. Chicken, bacon, cream cheese...how can that be bad? It can't. I think instead of using onion, I'll use mushrooms or spinach (or both). Because they are my favorites.
- http://meemoskitchen.blogspot.com/2008/03/benihana-japanese-onionsoup.htmlot.com/2008/03/benihana-japanese-onion-soup.html- I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the soup you get at most Japanese steak houses. I'm not too sure it's true Japanese food, but it is so good, I'm willing to overlook that.
- http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2008/11/oven-roasted-asparagus/- Go to the Pioneer woman's website. All of her food looks amazing and is fairly simple. I love asparagus and this looks fairly simple (which means I'll probably mess it up 20 different ways...but one day I'll get it right and it will be amazing.)
- http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2007/07/bacon-wrapped_j/cooking/2007/07/bacon-wrapped_j/- There are no words to describe how wonderful these look/sound. You just have to see it. Wish me luck in my cooking experiments!
I guess I can't really say this is my first blog. I used to blog on xanga occasionally, but I gave that up years ago. Anyway, my wonderful girlfriend Nicole started this blog so we can tell the world about our fascinating lives. I'm being sarcastic, but I'm excited about beginning a blog. Sometimes I have things to say, but I don't have anywhere to say them. Finally I have a place to pour out my mind. Currently my mind is occupied with our move to Cleveland, Mississippi from Oxford, Mississippi. I was just thinking about how Nicole and I are moving to one of the poorest spots in Mississippi, which happens to be the poorest state in the nation, and just how privileged we are to live in a country where we will be quite comfortable, even as poor college students living off the government, in the poorest region in the poorest state in the U.S. Just something to think on. Apart from that, I'm just trying to get through one more semester at Ole Miss so we can transfer to Delta State and move into our first apartment together in January. So excited. So much to do though. Also, I'm looking fward to Thanksgiving, seeing family, and eating way too much. I'm getting tired so I'll sign off now.
Until next time.
