So fast

I can't believe how fast everything is going. I am already in week 4 of the Spring semester at Walsh. The wedding is 73 days away and I am closing on our Condo in 4 and a half weeks! This is the last week for classes at OCC so after this I'll only have 1 more class to finish my 2nd Associates degree. Things are going really well though and I am excited for everything to come. Time to get back to my homework...

Eric's Birthday

Eric had a successful 20th birthday weekend. Janelle and Ryan came in on Saturday and we had dinner and cake and ice cream at my house, and then on Sunday Eric's parents invited my parents to their house for dinner and more cake and ice cream. He got lots of presents, a couple were even from our registry!

Eric and I went to Robert Long Park on Sunday (his actual birthday) so we could spend some time in nature on Earth Day.

Here are some pictures of the birthday weekend

Yesterday we went to the condo to measure...pretty much everything in the house that could possibly be measured. Since we are closing in 6 weeks, its time to start thinking about moving, and storage. Its not a huge house but it has some very good opportunities for good storage. Which, with the help of Ikea, will be neither hard nor expensive. After the condo, we went to Ikea and measured a few things that we had our eyes on, and even got some new ideas for things we like. We added them to our Wish List Page on our website.

Its so nice to see how excited everyone is getting as the wedding gets closer...we're really excited too! Many of you have told us to let you know if we need any help; don't worry, that day is coming fast! As all of the festivities get closer (5 weeks until the first shower!) We will definitely be enlisting all of our happy helpers. We really appreciate all of the support we have gotten from our family and friends. With a wedding this big, we need all the help we can get to stay sane!

Here are some pictures from our day at the condo yesterday.

Wish lists

A lot of people are starting to ask where we are registered. Here is a link to our wish list page, which you can also find on our main page (click on wedding wish lists on the left of the page). You can also go to Bed Bath and Beyond or Target and look up our registries there. We also made a list of things from Ikea we would really like. It was suggested to us that since there is no way to know who bought what from Ikea that we ask everyone to keep the items in their packaging in case we need to return something.

Sam's baby shower

I forgot to put the pictures of up the baby shower I threw for Sam (paid for by her mom and dad). It was a crazy week getting everything together but the shower was so fun! She got just about everything she needed for the baby.

She is doing really well, she's in the middle of her 32nd week. She's getting really big, every time I see her she looks bigger. We're all getting really excited about the baby coming soon!

This whole directed study class thing is weird. We've met once for the BIT compliance class and we are not meeting until a week from Thursday for the Oracle Database Aministration class. My software engineering class is awesome though, we started getting into full swing for the big project. This is going to be a rough semester, lots of papers and projects, it should be fun though!

We had a successful Easter at the Sovel's. Eric's parents were in Delaware with Amanda and the nieces so he celebrated with us. We started off at 9:00 breakfast at church, then Sunday school and church, then Janelle and Ryan came over and we colored eggs and had hamburgers and hot dogs (nobody in this house is very fond of ham). And then searched for our baskets. Here are some pictures. You can comment on the pictures as well.

I just got a call from my professor at Walsh. The BIT 347, Database Administration, class only had 3 students enroll. I know the others girls who enrolled so that is nice at least. He said the class is going to be shifted to a 'directed study' which means we learn the stuff ourselves =/

I guess there is not other way to do it though, the college can't pay him to show up every week and teach so they do it this way, I hope it works out.

Tonight I have my first class of the Spring semester, Software Engineering II. It is the second semester of the class I had last semester. The same teacher teaches it so it should go really well.

My Wednesday class, BIT Compliance, only has 4 people enrolled, but I have not heard from that professor yet, I guess I'll find out what will happen on Wednesday.

I am excited for this semester, the classes seem interesting and I hope I'll get some good stuff out of the classes.

Also, all of the honeymoon planning we have been doing is so much fun, I am really looking forward to going to Disney World =)

Hopefully the cold weather comes and goes really quick, just long enough to kill mosquitoes...

Happy Spring everyone!!!


On Saturday we went to Carlson Wagonlit Travel Agency in Plymouth (there are a surprising few travel agencies left in this area...but its so much easier than trying to figure it out on the website I think) We booked our honeymoon to Disney World!!! Our original plan was to go down on a Friday night and then not go to the parks until Saturday, but if you are staying in a Disney Resort, your ticket days start the day you get there. So the travel agent called and asked how much it would cost to add one more day, and it only cost $4.70!! That includes tickets and the dining plan! So we moved our Friday flight to the morning, and we'll just spend the afternoon there. For $4 thats worth it.

Our plane takes off at 10:15am on September 14th, and lands in Orlando at 12:53. We have reservations at 5:15 at Tony's Town Square in Magic Kingdom, which is based off of the Lady and the Tramp movie, which was my very favorite movie until The Little Mermaid came out. I'm really excited about that, I'll be ordering spaghetti! And we were able to get reservations at Cindrella's Royal Table on the 17th at 7:40pm, thats the restaurant in Cinderella's Castle!!! They start taking reservations for this restaurant 180 days in advance, and it says its a hard reservation to get so we were a little worried but we got it! We also have reservations at Marrakesh, a Moroccan restaurant, Les Chefs de France, and at Chef Mickey, which is supposed to have a lot of the characters wandering around a lot. We still have other reservations to make but the 2 restaurants I really really wanted were Cinderella's Royal Table and Tony's Town Square, so I'm happy. One of us will set up an itinerary link on our website so you can check out our plans as they happen, and we're hoping to be able to borrow a laptop so we can keep everyone updated while we're there. We have tickets for 9 days, on the 10th day that we're there (the 23rd) our flight leaves at 1:30 so we won't be going to the park then.

We are getting really excited about it!!!

As if it wasn't confusing enough...

Eric found a way to combine our blogs. So now you can catch up with both of us on the same page, as well as leave comments, and I think we can put picture links in...somehow. To see who wrote each entry, you look at the end of the entry and it will say Posted by:Jasmine. Maybe we can use different colors too...

well the point is that changes are being made, so be patient as we figure all of this out :)


I finally got all of our posts moved over from the old site to Blogger =)

Both Jasmine and I will be posting to this shared blog, it will say who posted each post at the bottom next to the post time...

We'll be doing some more updates pretty soon!
