A Bunch of Randomness

We had a nice weekend! Saturday we spent the day together and Sunday we stayed around the house and got some things done! Christian has finally finished his salt water aquarium. He bought the tank by itself and built the stand and canopy. Sunday we ran to the fish store and got a few things for the tank.
Here is a picture of the aquarium finished! He did such a good job on the stand. He still has a lot more to buy for inside the aquarium but it takes time. I'm very proud of him since this was his first big thing he built. I'm so proud of him, he is going to build me a cabinet for the living room for our DVD's. I'm trying to figure out how to decorate around the tank. It looks kinda lonely on that wall by itself. Do you have any ideas?
Sunday evening while I made dinner Christian put up my new curtains and rod! I think they look so good and I love them! It is exactly what those windows needed. It makes the whole wall look completely different!

On to the Bachelor...I am so addicted and hate I have to wait 2 weeks to see his final decision. I was kind of shocked that he sent home Jillian but I'm okay with that b/c I want him to pick Melissa! I love her and she definitely has my vote. I'm looking forward to American Idol tonight! I'm interested to see how everyone does.
I have to go out of town on Thursday to Chattanooga for work. I'm a little nervous about getting on a plane, since there has been two plane crashes in the past month. But I could get into a car just easily on my way to work soooo....
Christian has been working 2nd shift for the past three years as a shift supervisor but starting on Monday he goes on first. His company is cutting 2nd shift, because of the economy right now. I feel bad for the employees that are losing their jobs, but I can't help but to be a little excited about having Christian home at night with me! I pray that all the unfortunate ones losing their jobs right now that they are able to find new ones. Christian and I are very thankful for our jobs right now!
One more piece of exciting news! I'm put in for my vacation this summer and I can't wait to start planning our vacations for this year. We are going to Orlando in May for our friends wedding! We are taking a long weekend! My family is planning on going on a vacation the first week of August but we are having a hard time trying to decide where. Christian and I have voted for a cruise! I think we are planning on a cruise regardless!

Happy Valentine's Day!

We have had a nice Valentine's Day! We got up this morning and exchanged our gifts. Christian got me a gift certificate for a spa pedicure! I'll probably save it for sometime this summer! I got him the movie Finding Nemo. He is into his aquarium right now, so I figured what a good gift! We had dinner reservations at Bonefish Grill! It was our first time there and it was pretty good. I had the salmon which was ok, but Christian's lobster tail was so yummy! We had the brownie for dessert which was very good! I'm glad we had reservations b/c I heard them say the wait was 3 hours. After dinner we came home and watched House Hunters! We love that show....well really anything on HGTV! Ok well I'm getting ready to go to bed! HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!!

Just a normal Tuesday

Okay so I might be the only that watches the new 90210, but I do. I really watch it b/c I love the original 90210. I just got finished watching it and is Ethan getting on anyone elses nerves? I don't understand what he is thinking pushing Annie away and Silver she cracks me up. I like the show, but the original is much better I think! I DVR'd American Idol, I am about to watch that now!
Nothing exciting has happened this week. It has just been a normal week, but I'm happy tomorrow is already Wednesday! I am looking forward to Saturday b/c it is Valentine's Day and we have reservations at Bonefish! I've never been there so I'm really excited about trying it! We usually don't do much for Valentine's Day maybe dinner and a card. Although, I want to get Christian something this year....I'm just not sure what. Any suggestions?

Lazy Sunday!

I like Sunday's, but I don't like Sundays. I almost always stay at the house on Sunday's and relax! That is why I like them, but I always know Monday is right around the corner. I wish we had four day weekends every week! Work would be so much better then! We haven't really done much today. We went to Panera Bread for lunch! We've only been there a few times but it is so yummy! I had a turkey sandwich with a Greek salad and Christian had a chicken sandwich with broccoli and cheese soup. I also got a cinnamon crunch bagel (my favorite) to go, Mmmmm! This afternoon I hung some new shelves in laundry room, I am still working on getting organized.
Last night we went to see "He's Just Not That Into You", honestly it wasn't my favorite movie! It had a couple funny moments, but it was still nice to have a date night! This is Christian and I right before going into the theatre!
Here we are at Fire House Subs before the movie! We love this place too! We both had an Italian sub! It was right across from the theatre so it was very convenient.

Here is Buddy and Mommy waiting on Daddy to come out of Lowe's! Buddy is so funny...he stared at the door the whole time whining waiting on Christian to come back out. He loves his Mommy and Daddy so much!
Okay well it is almost 7:30 and I don't have a clue what we are doing for dinner so I need to get off this compute and be productive!

Family Day Saturday

I love Saturdays! I love being able to sleep in as long as I want and not having to worry about anything. I got up this morning and did a little cleaning, but I didn't have much b/c I did most of it on Thursday. Christian and I went to Jake's Diner for breakfast. This place is nothing fancy and is kinda a hole in the wall, but it is Christian's favorite place to eat. We usually go either on Saturday or Sunday mornings for breakfast. Although he usually makes it there during the week too. Today was such a pretty day and on the warm side, so I decided to give Buddy a bath! Afterwards, we went to Lowe's to get few things for the house we needed!
This was Buddy's first time at Lowe's he had such a good time and was such a good boy! I couldn't ever get him to look at the camera, he was too busy sniffing!
Here is Buddy and Daddy picking out a new water hose for the back of the house!
We also went by a car lot b/c Daddy thinks he needs a new car! Everyone there loved Buddy, they even let us bring him inside! There is a Sonic right beside the Lowe's so we took Buddy there and got him a plain Jr. Burger! Man did he love it! I always here about Dawson on from Kelly's Korner going to Sonic, so I thought I should spoil Buddy with a treat too. Buddy has had a very busy day and has been napping for the past two hours. I guess he is resting up for another pretty day tomorrow! I think tonight we are going to see the movie, "He's Just Not That Into You", hopefully it is good! If I could take Buddy into the movie theatre with me I would!

Four Wonderful Years

This past week Christian and I celebrated four years of dating. I can't believe that it has been that long since we've met. We met on February 2, 2005 and we instantly hit off! I love to look back at all of our pictures and remember all the good times! I get so anxious for all the good times we have to come. I thought I would share a few pictures of Christian and I from over the past four years! This is a picture of him and I right after we started dating! Look how long my hair was!
This is a picture from the summer of 2005! I think we look so young here!

Here is a picture of us at Christian's college graduation in May 2005!

This is a picture from my college graduation in May 2008! (I decided to take my time on graduating) I think I've changed more than him.

Here we are at dinner one night this past summer!
This is a recent picture of us from the Holidays! I guess we can call this our "grown up" picture!

I never thought the boy I met out at a "club" on my friends 22nd birthday would become the love of my life! I cherish what we have and look forward to many years to come! I love you Christian times infinity and back!!!

A little of this and a little of that

So it has been awhile since I've posted, but I haven't really had time. I've been super busy at work this week (which is a good thing these days) and have even had to bring work home. Once I get done at night all I want to do is lay on my couch and watch TV. I'm happy tonight and super relaxed b/c I have the day off tomorrow! I really took off b/c Christian and I were going to go snowboarding, but we've decided we are just going to hang out at the house and get some things done. I'm kind of bummed b/c he said he might have to work now anyways. Oh well I figured I would take the day to be lazy and get caught up on things here at the house (mostly cleaning and laundry).
I wanted to share these cute cards and bags I got from Target in the $1 section. Target's $1 section is my new found love! I've bought so many cute things from there recently, but you can't beat it for a buck! I can't wait until I have to use a gift bag and card for something. I also got a lot of cute Valentine stuff too.
So all season we have been wanting it snow here. We hardly ever get any snow so when we get some it is super exciting. This past week it snow 2 days but was all melted by 10:00 that morning. Just a flat out tease! Christian is from Florida and has never experience a snow day! So maybe before winter is we will have one good snow and go play in it! This is our son aka Buddy! Anyone that knows me...knows I treat this dog better than I treat some people. If you read my you probably here a lot about Buddy! This was Buddy in his first snow!

Here is a picture early in the morning of the snow. This is actually a picture from a couple of weeks ago. I thought for sure we were going to get a lot then but I beleive it was melted my noon :(
