I gave our cat a bath. Dan said, "She smells so bad." So, while he was at work, I bravely put her in the tub and attempted to shampoo her. Funny thing is... She didn't mind all that much.

Home again, Home again...

giggity gig....

What a weekend -- seriously. My mom, dad, little sister, Dan and I loaded up in the van and drove to Iowa, Waterloo, Iowa to be exact. The trip turned out better than I expected. Minus the 22 hour car ride there and the 26 hour car ride home, the few hours we spent in Iowa were fine. We arrived to our destination at 10:30 Saturday morning and left on Sunday night at 11:00 pm. Crazy? Yes! Stupid? Probably not. Strong family ties? Defiantly. You see, my cousin/god daughter was receiving her First Holy Communion and if you are Catholic that is a big deal. You dress up in an over priced dress - fix your hair all fancy , eat and then take pictures -- that is pretty much all that we did.

I personally enjoyed the trip -- besides the stiff back and lack of desire to do any of my school work that is due - I would say, that this trip was a success... but, it will never be done in that short amount of time again.

I hope everyone had a wonderful, home bound weekend with nothing to do.

.... One day.

Ants in my....


I am not exactly sure where the ants are hibernating... but, they are near me. Ever since Dan and I both heard we were accepted to Charlotte, I've been ready to go. It seems like the day will never come when we will leave Raleigh (something that will make my whole body rejoice)! Now, don't get me wrong there are some wonderful things in Raleigh -- I am sure of it.
Let me move on -- literally.

I have a confession....

I buy... baby clothes....

We aren't pregnant -- but, one day we hope to be.

Now, our children are "just a twinkle in our eye"....

Dan is very supportive of my "habit". It is probably because buying the baby clothes gives me enough satisfaction to postpone the "baby urges"....

I don't spend a lot of money on the clothes I buy... I actually only buy them off the clearance rack at Target... and for some reason, I only have girls clothes.

What does this all mean? Probably when we have kids - we will have all boys.

That is all.

Once Upon A Time....

Ten years ago I was: 14. My goodness, that is insane. I was about 1/2 done with my first year of High school! That means, I was in Latin club, drama club, Model UN, and S.A.V.E./S.A.D.D. clubs. I was happy with my friends, my life... everything.

Five years ago I was: 19! I had just gotten baptized a year ago. I graduated and moved to an apartment in Apex. I was totally stupid and I enjoyed every second of it. I probably made some pretty sill decisions... but, don't we all.

One year ago: I was avoiding Dan and trying to get someone elses attention. I blew Dan off when he invited me to Carowinds... a month later, I finally said yes. Interesting -- only a little of a year has past since he wouldn't leave me alone.

My to-do list: Make plans for Charlotte, I like to plan ahead. Wash the laundry, take a test for my online class, by season passes to Carowinds (I mean, why not -- we'll live only 30 mins away) and figure out what was for dinner.

Bad habits: Me? Bad Habits? Okay, seriously, I stay up late -- and get up early... only getting about 5 or 6 hours of sleep a night. I am horrible to argue with because I am always right, I frequently make to many plans which causes Dan and I to be completely rushed on the weekends. There are more - -but, that's enough.

I enjoy: long walks in 67-73 degree weather, slushies/icees, pasta, pizza, waking up in the morning and not rushing out of bed, staying home and watching movies with Dan, my kitten (who is getting so big), little kids and spending time with my family (that includes Dan's family as well).

If I suddenly got a billion dollars I would:... pay for our school, buy a house, 2 cars, pay of my parents bills, build an orphanage, start a family..... save money for my children... you know, the important things. :)

Places I've lived: Weirton, WV., Holly Springs, NC, Fuquay Varina, NC, Apex, N.C., Cary, N.C., North Raleigh, NC., and Raleigh, N.C.

Things you might not know about me: I hate being along -- even at night when Dan is working -- I dislike it. I get startled very easy. I am scared to death that Dan and I wont be able to have kids and if we do they will be kids with special needs. I want to get my PhD one day. I want to open an orphanage. I want to travel to Poland. I want to serve a mission. I want people to experience joy -- because only then will good things happen.
