Mr. Gill and I flew from Indiana to Idaho a couple of days ago.
On our way to Indiana AND on our way back to Idaho there were a couple of flights where it was too full for us to sit together....which was a bummer.
I thought about telling people that Mr. Gill and I are newlyweds-and wouldn't they scoot over so the newlyweds could sit together? Brilliant I thought, and I told Mr. Gill that I was going to say this next time we were going to be forced to sit apart to spare myself the sitting next to a stranger so I'm afraid to fall asleep for fear of drooling-ness.....and he told me that we were no longer newlyweds!


Of course we are....we haven't even been married 2 years....and then we started discussing the finer details of what constitutes newlywedness.....which I'm still not sure we totally agree, although he's now convinced that we are indeed still in the newlywed phase.

So after having Mr. Gill agree with me we had a happier flight!

Some of the flight happiness may be due to the fact we got to sit together and that my new purse and the sweater for the iPad (my first try at cabling) got to have the window seat!

I want to know what you guys think though, when does newlywed-Dom end? With kids? But some people have babies before they're married.....
Is it a time frame thing or a certain shift in behavior? Cause all I know is I want to spend all my time with Mr. Gill....and I don't see that changing anytime soon.
Let's have a poll.....when/how does the newlywed phase end?

Looking forward to your answers!

Indiana we love you

Mr. Gill and I are in Columbus IN today visiting our family. We've had a really great time visiting all of our family and friends.
A couple of highlights include:
1. Spooky Memorial! My family has a golf outing every fall and it's like a mini family reunion for the Lentes side, I'm really glad Mr. Gill and I were able to see so much of our family while we were here.
2. The covered bridge festival.....which was like a big flea market (I got a CUTE big green purse on the cheap). I got to encourage the aggressive driver that's been hiding in my mom as we were trying to get out of the parking lot and then We got stuck in traffic for 2 hours....and the house was only 20 miles away.....but it was quality car time.
3. We've spent SO much time visiting with old friends! It was so great to hear how everyone is doing and to talk about how God is shaking things up for us in Boise.
4. Seeing all the baby mommas and new babies! There is something in the seems like everyone we know in Indiana has or is getting ready to have a baby!
5. Karaoke with Mom and Pop Gill and Ronald! Mr. Gill and Ron each sang a song on their own and the they did If I had a million dollars by the bare naked ladies....Mr. Gill sang the higher part (but not a real green dress that's cruel) and it was AWESOME!

We still have a couple more days here in the Midwest, and I'm sure we'll have more fun stories to share.

In other news....I'm posting from our new iPad, which I don't think I really know how to use very well at all. It's all this app stuff, I can't really figure it out....but maybe someday soon I'll at least figure out how to move pictures off the iPad onto the blog or, unfortunately no pictures today......which would have been of Mr. Gill playing video games since thats how he's spent 80 percent of his time here at the Gill house ;)

Anyway, pictures to come in the next post when I'm back at a device I know how to use!

Fun with Yarn

Today Mr. Gill and I fly to Indiana.

But I want to share with you picture of one of my new craft projects!

A Yarn Wreath!
I've seen these all over the blog world so I decided to make one for our little apartment!

And ALMOST everything was from the Dollartree!
The yarn is left over from the Bears scarf I made my brother, and the sign I made myself ;)
So if you come to Boise to visit us (which you should!) this is what would greet you when you get ready to knock on our door. That and the smell of the worlds best chocolate chip cookies! You'd come over for cookies right?
Next you hear from us we'll be in Indiana!!!
