a winner and a little bit of texas.

well howdy ya'll.
i can officially say "howdy" and "y'all" in the same sentence now cause i just spent the weekend in texas...looking for a home.
and we found one!
before i go any further though, the winner of the sponsor giveaway day is:

Janaye

e-mail me girl and i'll get you hooked up with your loot!
so, like i said...mr. anderson and i spent the weekend in texas.  since our anniversary was last week, we decided to make it an anniversary/find a house trip.
totally fun, right?

we also had a super cute tag-a-long.

we were able to find the perfect home for us...for reals.
once everything becomes more official i will share more and show some pictures.
i am counting down the days till we move now.
texas, here we come!

so, we had a fun and quick trip.
minus a very rude airport lady, the trip was a good one.
{seriously, i almost punched this airline worker in the face---but then restrained cause i wanted to get home---it deserves a post in itself}
we accomplished what we needed to accomplish and we are one step closer to making the big move halfway across the country.

and when i wasn't fretting over the house situation, i was busy making out with olive.
{mr. anderson was totally jealous}

oh, and it is true what they say...everything is bigger in texas.
including the couches.
