For some reason, time has been jumping through my hands--I go to work and suddenly it is lunch time and I blink and the day is over! It probably has to do with the start of school, work being busier, moving, and a variety of other things that cropped up over the course of time. I missed quite a few things I was looking forward to blogging about. And since there are many...I am just going to condense the important ones here, in an attempt to get everyone caught up so that there is no backlog. Here is what you missed:
1. I turned 26!
|Dressed up for my birthday day.|
|And for my birthday night!|
2. I started doing INSANITY!
|I am NOT a morning person.|
3. We got new floors installed and started moving out of our apartment and into our house!
We rented a UHaul van, everything else was booked, and took all of the pieces that were too large to be hauled in my Civic...which meant a lot of furniture. We had a friend help, since I had hurt my back. The following pictures are what our house looked like after moving only the big stuff and a few miscellaneous things.
|Bedroom does not look *too* bad here...|
|The left half of the office...|
|...and the right half.|
|Kitchen...notice the amount of stuff just piled on the counter?|
|And the living room...|
Since these were taken, these rooms have been bombarded with even more things and put in some order. It definitely is not perfect yet, but it is much more livable :D Pretty soon it will be put together and we will not have to do this for at least another 5 years.
4. We "celebrated" our 1st anniversary!
During the move-in week, Thomas and I took a night to snuggle up (I cannot remember if this was after we moved our bed or if we were on the sleeping bag we used the first few nights), watch shows, and unwrap the frozen top layer of our wedding cake and cut a slice to eat.
|It was a tad smooshed, but still quite pretty and tasty.|
5. School started back up.
Thomas was back to taking classes and all my grads/undergrads were back from the summer field work, internships, and general vacation...meaning I had to start supervising more than I have been. Not to mention two of my projects started giving really awesome results :D Yay!
6. Thomas turned 25!
Thomas' sister planned, and I helped, a celebration of "25 years of Memories" from friends (old and new) and family. Everyone was supposed to write a memory they had of Thomas to be packaged up for his birthday. He was surprised and really liked it. We also went out to dinner with some friends to celebrate.
I think this may cover all of the *big* things that happened...sorry I was so behind. I will try not to do it again!
