We have been here five days now and I have just loved it. The humidity feels great on my skin and a definite relief from Utah's dry as heck atmosphere! We LOVE our apartment! It is a huge sigh of relief and comfort compared to our falling apart basement apartment in Provo. We have definitely taken a step up!! Our closet is huge, we have a dishwasher!!! (that's not human) and a washer and dryer soon to come!!! Living in the apartment has proven difficult to live in with a dog, but we had loads of fun with Koda today! Ivan doesn't have his correlation meeting until Noon M-F, so we have lots of time in the mornings to be together as a familyyyy :D It's nice to actually have time to eat a big breakfast and make a lunch!! today before Ivan left we went on a walk!
Correction: Koda is almost five months and he weighs 22.7 pounds.. wooot go Puppy go!!
Also, mainly because my mom has been asking for them.. Here are pictures of our apartment a few days ago.. since then I have put up more pictures... I've gotten very good at command hooks, mounting tape and hanging up frames without making holes in the walls :)
Things I Love About Georgia So Far:
The People! Folks Have been so nice to me so far, everywhere I go!!
Low/ Regular Altitude Baking!! Holy Cow, I grew up in California and baked all the time and as soon as I hit Utah, I became distraught and utterly distressed when I baked.. to make just normal choc. chips there, you have to add water to the dough and put in less sugar.. just so they'll have a good consistency, which is lame cuz then they taste worse..Boo! Anyway, I've had some delicious ones that other Utah Mommies have made, but I could never pull off anything remotely tasty. I made Chocolate Chip Cookies when Ivan came home last night and I made the dough super fluffy with my Kitchen Aid ;) the dough.. first of all was completely addicting.. haha, right after dinner Ivan went to the bowl and said, Alright now I'm going to have a spoonful of this dough.. I turn around to see a heaping 1/3 cup at least piled on his spoon!! Plus, the cookies were perfect! Hallelujah!!!!! Crispy on the edges, Gooey in the Middle! MmmmMm
P.S. Just an F.Y.I. about this photo... If you know Ivan, you know that if taking a picture around a meal table, he'll take something dark and put in in his front teeth right before the shot, so yeah.. this is what we did.. I can't tell you how many great family/ friends shots have this little beauty in them! Which is perfect, because, growing up, this was our family joke everytime we ate brownies! Therefore, Here we present The Hoffmans: Cookie Dough Night!!!
