Being a young mom means we met a little early, but I get to love them longer.

Here are some links to helpful posts I have done in the past :)

This may be it!!

I truly do believe Chris has matured more then I ever thought he would. When his grandpa died he got his step-dad's truck (his step-dad got his grandpa's), and before we separated all Chris talked about was how he was going to fix it up and show it off. Well while we were on vacation Chris sold it for about $2000 (it wasn't the nicest truck in the world), and he last night he told me that we were going to start looking for apartments because that would cover first months rent, the security deposits, and the electric bill and deposit. We will have enough for the bills each month, but if he hadn't sold the car we wouldn't have been able to afford the deposits. Next month I will be getting my grants for school and we are going to use some of that to buy furniture (I will have plenty left over). We went and looked at a place today that his mom sent us too, but it was not right for us at all. It was tiny.. there was only one bed room, and you had to walk through the bedroom to get to the bathroom. The only thing I like was that it had a washer and dryer. SO we looked on Craigslist.. at first we saw that place that Brittany was going to move into, but it's not exactly where we want to live since the landlord tried to pull one over on Brittany and Jessie. Then we found a place that is still in Ringgold, it's $430 a month with water and garbage included, it's a two bedroom, and it's on a quiet street. We are going to go see it tomorrow! And we looked up the directions on Google Maps so we would know how to get there and the street right next to it is called Gracie Lane. It's like it's a sign or something. I don't know.. I just have this feeling that this is going to be the place. I really hope it is. If we like it we are going to put in an application immediately! Chris has good credit so we shouldn't have any problems there.
I was just really impressed with Chris.. usually I would have to suggest something like that and we would fight over it, but he put his family before himself, and actually stepped up to the plate. Now we may be able to live together again. I reallllllllllllllllllly hope this works out. I have been wanting this for a long time. It is my dream to be our own little family.

Also today we went over to Chris' to go look at that apartment. After we looked he wanted to take me to a movie. We went to see Eclipse.. yes I am a Twilight fan, but not the movies.. the books. This movie did surprise me though. It was actually pretty good. It may just be that I finished the books about two years ago, so I don't remember all the details, but this movie seemed to follow the book a little bit better. Still can't stand their choice for Edward though! Yuck! Now Taylor Lautner on the other hand.. Chris and I both have one famous person who we like and he is mine! Lol. Then Chris took me to eat at TGI Fridays :) Yum!
Then we went and looked at some furniture. We found a couch we like, but it may be the same one Brittany has lol.. Our living rooms may look alike.


  1. That's awesome. I can't tell you enough how great it is to have your own place and be able to raise your child without someone always having something to say or stupid rules. But I will tell you a lot more stress can come from it too. Bills are horrible. And making sure you have enough for bills, diapers, gas, food, etc can be quite exhausting but at the end of the day it's all worth it. Im glad he is stepping up. O and brittany and I have similar furniture. We also have the same bed set and decorations for our daughter's room. And we haven't even met. LOL.

  2. That is great! I really hope it works out! Really? That is funny? Are you going to get the chair and everything too? It is REALLY comfy. lol. Jessie and I like to lay on it together and watch TV after Samantha falls asleep. =)p
