Busy does not even begin to describe it...

This week seemed to drag on slower than the slow motion scenes in Baywatch. I could not believe how slow the week went by and how busy I seemed to be. Busy is always better than having nothing to do combined with a slow week. I am so thankful though. I have a great job, great friends from work and I love what I do. Also, I am going to be leading the team next week because Paul is taking a much deserved vacation. He is also part of the reason I love going to work everyday.

I am really excited because I am meeting with Kara, our realtor, next week to go over more details of the house search. As you know, we are putting it on a tiny hold for right now...but it is a good thing. We are getting all of our ducks in a row and we are looking in nicer areas. We want a great neighborhood and a yard for the pups. Somewhere great to start our little family one day.

My brother celebrated his 29th birthday on the 6th, my father in law celebrated his on the 19th and my sister in law celebrated her 24th the 9th. Crazy how time flies. We miss our families so much and we cannot wait to see them during the holidays this year. An update on John: he is currently going through his second round of chemo and he said he is holding up. He is in good spirits and I try to call him weekly. Good news is that he is still planning to come see us in October. We cannot wait to see him and Vikki very soon!

We are still missing Cocoa here but we know she is in good hands with Connie and Sue. I cannot wait to get our little girl back and I know Romo misses his girlfriend.

As for this weekend...it is Labor Day. Finally, a couple of days off and with John to enjoy them with me. We are thinking about going to Miami Beach this weekend to enjoy the sand and the people. I cannot wait for the weekend. :)


Actually keeping up with such things....

This is where the challenge begins. Can I keep up with a blog? Well...yes...I just need to put more effort in to something that could be really great when it comes to sharing what is going on with the two of us in our lives as far as how John and I grow together...and eventually, kiddos. :)

So what has changed since the last blog you ask? I think the biggest news is John got a promotion with Aldi! I am so incredibly happy and proud of him. I hate the word "deserve" because nobody deserves anything in life if they do not work extremely hard for it, but John absolutely deserves this promotion.

I also received a promotion at Rasmussen. I am now the Admissions Manager for a wonderful team. I have never been so happy to go to work everyday. I am so lucky to have the friends I have around me each and every day.

As far as John and I go together...we are still looking for our first little casita. I am so excited. We have been looking for about a month now and have found a few prospectives. I cannot wait to have our own little house and have a backyard for the puppies. The hardest part about having our own house will be not living with Mich and Mely anymore. I have to say it is an absolute party here every weekend and I will miss it so much. I love coming home at night and having someone here when John has to work late and of course, the late night talks we always have about life, love, and well, everything.

The next thing John and I have to do together is post engagement/marriage pictures. We found a great photographer thanks to some great friends here. Also, I am getting my citizenship soon! The paperwork will be put through next week and then it is just a waiting game.

We are constantly thinking about big John in Indiana...always keeping him in our thought and prayers. We love and miss him very much. John will be in Indy again this weekend to see him and of course, spend some time with the boys and fantasy football. I know he will have a blast.

Well, that is it for now. There will be more soon. :)


My First Blog

Well, here it is. My very first blog. Who would have thought? I just thought this would be a great way to keep everyone updated on what is going on in my little life. All is well right now...and I will for sure write more later. I just wanted to get this little thing started for when John and I take more steps in our lives together...smiling and laughing along the way. I could not be happier. Of course there will be tons of pictures too. :)
