It's my birthday weekend!

I turn 26 on Sunday!  I'm pretty excited about my birthday this year.  I don't have any big plans or anything, but just excited for the day in general.

To kick off the celebrations, last night Bill took me to see Bridesmaids.  I've been bugging him to go and see this since it came out, and let's just say, it didn't disappoint!  I loved it.  It made me laugh, made me cry.  All the necessities of a good movie in my opinion. 

Tonight we are going out to eat with my family.  I have a cousin home from California so it will be good to see her, and then my parents are taking me out for dessert.  Yum!

No other big plans for the weekend, but the weather looks like it is going to be pure perfection on Sunday.  Maybe a bike ride and picnic will be in order to celebrate my big day. 

Have a great weekend everyone!

Lookie what we did!

She's all ours!  Currently trying to name her...

This summer just got 1000000000 times cooler (or hotter when you think about baking in the sun with no roof).  I'll take it either way!

Anyone else trying their best to help the economy these days???  I'm also headed to Express on my lunch break.  Hopefully the damage is minimal.

It's Friday, Friday!

For a short work week, this week really seemed to drag on.

This weekend I'm hoping to start working on a dresser I bought off Craigslist.  I want to start the sanding and painting process!  We'll see how it goes, or if I even get up the nerve to get started!

Other things I'm looking forward to this weekend:
1.  Florist appointment for the wedding.
2.  Possibly buying a Jeep!
3.  Watching my sister's dog Mesa.
4.  Cleaning up the garage and getting ready for garage sale next weekend.

Here's to hoping it is another great weekend!

Brooklyn Turned 2!

I can't believe Brooklyn is two years old!  It seems like yesterday that we got to pick her up and call her ours.

Prepare yourself for Brooklyn overload.  I just can't help myself!

Happy Second Birthday Brooklyn!  Your momma loves you!

Back to school...

I was originally very excited about starting school again.  The idea of continually learning as I get older is something that is very important to me.  After two weeks of class though, I've realized that I highly romanticized going back to school. 

I imagined studying in the student union, feelings of accomplishment, and I even seem to have better time management when I'm busy.

While the time management thing is working out, the actual class part stinks!  Now, instead of studying in the student union, I study at home.  Studying at home is hard.  I see everything I am missing out on.  Hanging out with Bill and Brooklyn, keeping the house clean, and quite frankly, just enjoying my down time. 

The class I'm taking is neither easy nor hard.  So far I've been doing pretty well; however, I have a test tonight that I haven't quite studied for so we will see how I feel tomorrow.

Is anyone else considering going back to school?  After this class, I'm not sure if I really want to sign up for the whole masters program.  I like having my nights and weekends to do as I wish.  At least I will have this prequisite done if I ever do decide to apply to grad school.

Happy Wednesday!  Wish me luck on my test!

School and a Purse

My first night of class went well last night.  Although, I realized that three hours of class two nights of the week might start to feel really grueling...

In honor of my first day of school (do I still get back to school clothes??) I bought myself a new purse!

Can't wait for this beauty to show up on my doorstep!

Also, Bill is home, and all is right in the world again!  Brooklyn is infinitely more happy, as am I!

Can't wait for the weekend! Maybe I can convince Bill I need to go back to school shopping :)

I miss him...

Bill's been traveling for work a lot lately. 
I miss having him around.  And I know Brooklyn sure misses him.  I'm not nearly as much fun.
Can't wait for him to get home tomorrow.

Sorry for the long blog silence. 
With Bill traveling so much, my life consists of wedding planning, hanging out with the dog and cleaning...not much else.

I do start school tomorrow though (what??). 
That's right, I've decided that I might apply to a program to start my MHA, but I never took microeconomics in undergrad. 
Therefore, I start micro tomorrow night for the first summer session. 
Depending on how this goes, I might consider graduate school...

The thought of homework is terrifying though.

Happy Tuesday all!
