Move in day!

So, I am officially moved in! Well, I still don't have much stuff but Jasmine's Mom and Dad and my Mom and Dad brought over loads of stuff...We have dishes, pots, pans, appliances, table, chairs, pillows and some clothes. I still have more work to do to get the place ready for Jasmine to move in, in July, like painting and furniture and cleaning. Good thing one of my oh so kind neighbors has an open wireless connection, hopefully they aren't just using it to steal passwords... =/

I used the fitness center at our complex tonight, I could only run for about 12 minutes at a 7mph pace, I think I need to drink more water, I got a bit dizzy so I took a break, then got on the stationary bike and did a strength training workout for 8 minutes. It is going to be so nice to have a workout room so close by! I mean, who runs on sidewalks anymore?!? ;)

Well, I am exhausted now, time to grab my sleeping bag.

We will have some pictures up soon, Jasmine forgot her camera at home with all the excitement, good thing her Mom had her camera.

Lots of love for everyone!

Our shower was amazing!!! Grandma Ruth came up from Florida and she, Aunt Karen, Adam, Amy, and one of my bridesmaids, Kelley, were all at the church with my parents on Saturday to decorate. It looked beautiful! Jaimie and Jenna spent Saturday night so they could be there to help, and all of the bridesmaids were there to make the sandwiches and finish doing all of the food stuff. It was so fun having everyone together! Its nice to know that there is a big group of girls there to help me whenever I need it. 54 people came to the shower, and it was so much fun! We got so many great gifts, I can't wait to put them in the new house! Aunt Ann Marie coordinated a recipe collection in everyone's invitation so I got a recipe from almost everyone, I'm really excited to try all of them! I even got Grandpa Bob's latke recipe, and my Great Grandma Rose's meatball recipe!

The dentist on Thursday was no big deal, I was nervous because I had never had a cavity that required a shot and numbing and stuff, but it wasn't bad...I got 3 shots but none of them hurt, and it was weird to not be able to move half of my mouth...I accidentally bit my cheek a couple of times but not too hard. And I love my dentist so much, she's so nice! I hope she's on our new insurance...

Eric was sick and then I ended up getting sick on friday and saturday morning so we haven't made it to see Shrek yet :(

But today is the walk through for our condo!!! I'm so excited to see it again! We close on Friday and Eric is moving in then. Uncle Rick and Aunt Laura have offered to help us paint, and they painted their house so they're experts.

I'm so glad we have so many family members and friends that are there to help us with everything we do. We couldn't do any of this without all of you!!!

We'll post shower pictures either today or tomorrow so check back!

Wow, I got a great score on my Oracle midterm.  This is that class that we only meet 4 times and we have to teach ourselves from the book because not enough people sign up for it.  I still have to wait and see what kind of curve he gives the score but I am doing pretty well =)

The crazy life

Since May hit, things are just going going going. Our calendar has at least one thing in it for just about every day right up to the wedding. Just a reminder of our countdown, for those who can't believe how soon everything is already:

The shower is this Sunday! I can't believe that, they started planning it forever ago!
We close on the condo next Friday (the 25th) and Eric is moving in
My Grandma is throwing a small shower next Saturday for close family and a few of her friends to wish me well. We also hope to paint the condo that weekend...any volunteers to help?
June 3rd we are meeting our photographers for a photoshoot that lets us get to know them and their photography style. I thought that was a very nice idea. As if there won't be enough pictures of us this summer, right?

And in the midst of all of this, Sam is due June 2nd. We started a baby poll a couple of weeks ago so everyone could guess when she'll have him. As long as its not this week or she'll miss the shower she's been planning for so long! I picked May 29th so that his birthday will be a month before mine.

Eric's Grandma gave us a hand crank ice cream machine, it makes the best ice cream ever! We had some last night and I've been thinking about it all day! Look out, wedding diet! Too bad there isn't a good way to make low fat ice cream in it. We looked :(

On Thursday I have to go get a couple of little cavities filled, I'm a little nervous about that, I haven't had a filling done in years! So this week is funny because I want the week to go by quickly so I can get to the shower, but I also want it to go slowly because I don't want to go to the dentist. Its just one thing to get through though, so it will be fine.

I'm almost done working every day too, which I know will be nice because I'll have lots more time to get stuff done, but I always miss being there with the kids every day. (for those who don't know, the mom I work for is a teacher so in the summer's I only work a couple of days a week, and I don't have to get there as early in the morning) Since I started in the summer with them, this will be my third summer working for them. I can't believe how long its been! So it will work out nicely, I will be done working every day not long after Sam has her baby, so I can be there to help her out during the day and we can get all of the wedding plans done together.

I'm so excited for this summer!!!


Things are going well, Week 7 of 11 for the Walsh spring classes already!  I sent my OCC transcript over to get my last two transfer classes officially added, that should be done this week =)

I can't believe I only have 3 more semesters after this!

Mother's Day

So Grandma gave us a hand crank ice cream maker...and we used it! Its in the freezer cooling, but nobody knows we snitched...except Shannon now, because she's hanging out with us. We worked in the garden with mom, we'll put some pictures up when its done. We do fine work.

I'm halfway through the semester at Walsh, things are good...and crazy

I'll post more later...we just heard that some people check every day so we wanted to give them something to read.

P.S. 55 days for those who are counting!
