House Projects

Gabe loves having a house that he can do WHATEVER he wants to :)

Happy Halloween!! 2009

We hope everyone had a great Halloween! We had a fun time decorating our house and relaxing and passing out candy!!

House Improvements!!

Well its been about a month in our new house and we are on our way to making this house our home!!

We painted some walls:
Our pink guest room in now a dark blue,Gabe's Choice :) He wants to make it our game room.
Also we painted a wall in our front room and our dinning room a pretty blue!!
We still want to paint our room. I love paint because it is a really easy touch that changes things to be our style

We also started working on our back yard. We still have a lot of work to but its looking a lot better. We are trying to make it dog friendly since we are getting our dog Sparkey soon. (My parents have 3 doggies and the older dog Pudge has been fighting with Sparkey because he likes to have fun and is bugging Pudge. So my mom called me and asked if we love to add Sparkey to our little family! He is a great doggie so Gabe and I said Yes!! We are excited for him to join us soon!

We also got our First house warming gift from my Parents. Our new couch which we LOVE!! Thanks Mom and Dad :)

Offically Our New Home!!!

We are happy to say, We are home. lol. After the longest 4 months of our lives, we are finally here. We are so grateful for all our WONDERFUL love and support from our family and friends. They really helped us though this whole process still alive. We will be having a party soon :), we will keep you updated on details!! Love you all.

p.s. Sorry the house is still messy as we are still unpacking lol.

My Gamer

Everyone that knows Gabe, knows he is a XBOX 360/Halo 3 lover. lol. Being his wife,I have been sucked in and enjoy playing with him. Well a couple of weeks ago, Gabe turned on his XBOX and it got the 2 rings of death ( Gamer talk) lol Which basically means your XBOX is broken. That didnt stop my husband lol.. after 3 days of working on it... he got it to work as you can see with the smile on his face. Gotta love Gabe. He is so cute when it comes to his XBOX.

House Hunting

As many of you know, Gabe and I have been looking to buy our first home in Las Vegas for a couple months now. When you think of buying house, you think it would be exciting, a dream come true. Although it has been all these things, it has always been the most stressful thing in a long time. A new adventure for sure.Being Newlyweds, it has made our marriage stronger :) Our first offer we made was a weird experience. Gabe fell in the love with the house right away with the lovely pool and all, While i was trying not to get too attached. We wanted to be aggressive and get the house and since the house was under priced, we made a offer of 25000 more than asking price. After a couple days went by and we didn't hear anything, long story made short their reality was very shady and looking to make even more money and lied about accepting our offer so we just moved on and hoped for the best.If it was meant to be it would have. After weeks of looking we found this WONDERFUL neighborhood. When driving to the house i thought there was no way we could afford a house in this area. It really is a dream to raise a family in this community with a wonderful park in the middle of all the houses. We walked in the house and i fall in love!!! lol I walked out and was like Gabe.. that is the one. He was like lets think about it. I just had to have it and of course being the wonderful husband he is.. we went to our Realtor office and signed papers!! Which it began in June and our lease ending in August we THOUGHT (key word)we would have plenty of time to close. We were wrong when our closing date of August 28th came and went lol. Being a short sale this house has truly been a major roller coaster for us. We have put all we and have more into getting this house. I am so proud of Gabe and all his hard work. It really is a huge blessing being 22 Newlywed couple buying our dream house. I just want to Thank him and say sorry that things have been tough lately but i am so grateful that he is by my side to fight this battle with. Love you baby 27. Anyways back to the house, We are all packed and we should be moving this weekend or next.. lol its always a waiting game. but as soon as we move i will post lots of pictures. of course we want a House Warming Party!! We will be planning that as soon as we get all settled in. I want to thank all our family and friends for all the love and support. It means the world to us. The steps of Life.. Marriage.. House... Whats next,Kids?? lol We are working on it ;)

Trip to Utah




This past weekend was a true turns of ups and downs.

On Friday night, 2 /13/2009

We left for Utah for Jessy and Bostons wedding. We packed up the car at about 9:30 pm with the wedding cake and all and started toward Utah. As we stop to get food, i soon notice my tooth was acting up again. Its been doing this for about 2 years now and i just learned to deal with since i am too scared to go get a root canal. In the past after a couple of hours, it always seems to go away. Not this time........We soon notice that we would be driving though a snow storm. What is usually a 3 and half hour drive turned move into a 7 hour drive.

2/14/2009
Finally arriving at Uncle Ron's and Aunt Stacy's at 6:30 am. Gabe and CoCo laid down to get a couple of hours of sleep in before we had to leave for the wedding.. but for some reason my tooth was not getting better,.... but worse.. i couldnt sleep so i just got up and talked with the boys for a little bit before getting ready to leave. We were on our way to the wedding with a quick stop in Provo to drop off the cake and step it up. Little did i know that cake took a little bit of a fall on its way. So what was suppose to take about a half hour turned into a hour and a half very fast. Gabe and Coco were great helpers as we got the cake up and running.

I changed and we were out the door on the way to
SaltLake to the Temple to see the newlyweds. Here
they are coming out of the Temple
Mr. &Mrs. Boston Blake






After we went to a wonderful lunch for the newlyweds that was held in the Joseph Smith Building. A couple hours later we were off to the Reception in Provo where the cake was already set up and waiting lol. Meanwhile i was still in pain having no idea what we going to do... i just keep taking advil to keep the pain to a minamal. We had a great time at the recpetion, dance the night away and had cake and a wonderful chocolate fontain that i was sad and didnt get to eat any because of my tooth. We said goodbye to the newlyweds and were off to uncle Ron's. BUT.... the pain got worst and worst and it wasnt going away ... so i looked to my wonderful husband and said .. .i think we have to go... we got all our things together and i went in the car and waited for him. right before we were leaving juj and ani showed up and said that she could get us some medicane. i was so greatful and still am. it helped me get though the rest of the weekend. On the way home we were both very tired so we stoped at beaver... i know scary right and got a room to rest and started back again in the morning.. made it st. george and felt so much better. Gabe later told me that he had a room set up for us at the casion and had a wonderful relaxing time there all of sunday and went home monday. i dont think i have ever slept so much. Monday gabe came home early from work and we went into the denist together. my poor tooth was done for. they did the root canal but since the pain was so bad they had to close up and do the rest of it in a week. so i am sitting here with my tooth almost all better and very greatful for all the people who were so supporting and caring for me this weekend. i love you all so much. and thanks to my hubby as he sat in the room while they did the root canal. I am so grateful for him. i love u more than you will ever know...... 27. I hope you all have a great day. thank you for reading my LONG blog lol. :)
