Ticket/New Apartment/ Flying

A year and a half ago I received my very first speeding ticket. I was coming home from a 11 hour transplant and I knew I was speeding and I didn't care cause I was so tired! Anyway, Dallas courts are so messed up and bogged down that, after almost a year and a half , was able to take care of my ticket today! I took a day off work and everything so I could go sit in a court room. Well, God is good. Not only did I not die while trying to get to the court house (driving is Dallas is a fear of mine...all those one way streets) but found out after a while of sitting around in silence, that the officer never showed and so everyones cases were thrown out and we didn't have to pay anything!!! Horray! That just saved me $250!!! I thought for a second about not telling Matt and using the extra money to go shopping...but then I realized married people shouldn't keep secrets or lie to each other, so I decided not to hahah!

So Matt and I are moving apartments! Yea! We have been in this one for a year we moved from our other one because Matt's truck was stolen twice within a few months at our other apartment. While our reason for leaving this apartment is not as drastic, our current apartment is 25 yrs old and falling apart. The kitchen cabinets are really old and the bathroom is leaking, our bathroom door fell off it's hinges, and when I blow-dry my hair the lights go out ! These are all things that we could live with since we will probably be in a house in a year but frankly, I just don't want to. We found some really nice brand new apartments in Mansfield that aren't even open yet. We went with some good friends of ours to look at them and they ended up getting an apartment there too. We will be neighbors!!! What I'm most excited about is that you are allowed to paint your walls!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have already started to look for paint colors! I am so excited. Here is a picture of one of the kitchens at the apartments. This is one of the bigger floor plans. Our kitchen will probably be half this size...

We have a dark red couch so I was thinking doing our living room wall color like a dark color. Here is a picture to try and describe what I'm thinking...

Today Matt is going up in an airplane for the first time. Well, he's been in a plane plenty of times before as a passenger..... I'm talking about his first time to be the one FLYING the plane!!! Of course he isn't by himself since he just started school but still. I was driving and saw two different planes that are the exact kinds that he flies. I think he might have been in one of them!!! How cool is that!

This is for you Babe!!!
