I know its been WAYYYY too long since I've blogged...but seriously, I'm still checking in on everyone! I just could not help but post today. I've been following many of you closely lately and 3 of the most AMAZING women I know, have had their prayers answered. Steffie, Kimberly, and Nikki have been blessed over these last few days and I'm over the moon for them! Every time I look at their blogs, I want to weep tears of joy and I get tingles all over my body!! I'm so lucky to know all of you and to be praying for you on a daily basis. Since I've been on this journey with all of you for so long, it seems like I have a bond with your stories. Adoption to me is so close to my heart. I honestly feel as if one day I will adopt. Why else has God put me in this position?! I will hopefully be back sooner more then later and have my blog up and running again. My wedding is fast approaching and I'm busy busy busy! I love you all and I'm praising God today for the wonderful miracles that he has brought to so many of you. God is good!!

Winding Down

Hi everyone! I just wanted to update everyone really quick. I'm still here and doing very well! I haven't been able to blog due to not having Internet and plus this summer was a super busy one! I hope you are all doing fantastic! I have decided to lay low with the blogging until we get Internet up and running in our new house.... I know its a bad decision but I just don't have the time or resources right now! I still try to read your blogs as often as I can, so I'm not totally gone! ;) I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day. It is sad to see summer winding down but hey, we get to look forward to a beautiful fall! Miss you all...

My Best Friend and I

Where Have I Been?

I miss you guys so much I can't hardly stand it anymore! I think about you bloggers 24/7! This summer is FLYING by and I can't wait stand not having a computer at my house! I thought having my computer at my best friends house would be perfect but then I started working 12-9pm and that leaves NO time to get here to blog....UGH.... Ok enough of this....what can I fill you all in on!? We got our reception site booked and the down payment put down on it. We also have the church date saved. I'm definitely thrilled that those two big parts are done but there is SO much more to do. Work is good. I'm loving it more and more everyday! Bad camera broke that has all my pictures of the house and what not on it. Sad day that was. Hopefully God will grace me with the money for a new one...ha. Anyways, I feel like I have so much more to tell you all but its all jumbled in my head. All I know is life is good, Tyler is WONDERFUL, however he just got shipped 5hrs. away to work and will possibly be gone for awhile :( .... I'm trying to stay positive and just know that I get to spend the rest of my life with him! We have been plugging away at the new house. I gutted the kitchen and bathroom last weekend so that made me feel good and now it feels more "livable."

I'm sending my love to all of you. I pray and think about you all daily.

SO much to talk about!

Wow, a lot has been going on these last few days! Where do I begin... Well work is going very well and I even got a raise already! :) It is so fun to be working in the salon atmosphere and I'm so thankful that I was able to get a full time job with this job market. Ok on to bigger news.... My mom and I went out yesterday to look at reception hall and to TRY ON WEDDING DRESSES!!! What a successful day we had! I fell in love with the "ballroom" and I fell IN LOVE with a dress!! I tried on a few and wasn't thrilled and then I tried on a dress...I think "THE" dress! I didn't want to take it off. I was walking around in it, sitting down, twirling around, smiling ear to ear, and just loving the look of being a bride. The girl helping us grabbed a teirra and a veil and then my mom lost it. The tears started flowing! We had a great time and I'm so thankful that we found a reception hall so quickly and I found a dress on my first try! OH and other big news....we are moving up our wedding up a month! We are now getting married on August 22nd, 2009! I'm so excited. Tyler and I have been spending endless hours talking on the phone about wedding stuff. He's working up north for a couple more weeks then he will be working closer to home! :) Well my friends, as soon as I get pictures uploaded I'll be doing posts on the house and more wedding stuff. I'm going to be selecting bridesmaid dresses soon so I'll try to post pictures for some input. I hope you are doing fabulous and enjoying the best season of all!

Girls Night

Last weekend my good friend Abby came into town from Chicago to visit her sisters and me! After work, I picked her up and we headed back to my house to get ready. We picked up my best friend Melissa and headed out to dinner. We had such a fun time! That was until the HUGE thunderstorms rolled on in. I can't believe the weather we had this past weekend. It has been one thunderstorm after another! Anyways, the storm rolled in about the time we were headed out. We got to my friends apartment just as it began to down pour. For the next 2 hours the rain just came harder and harder and the thunder and lightening were outragous! We were going to head out to a couple of bars but decided to have just stay in and play card games instead! It was a fun night and I'm so glad Abby got to come visit! I miss you friend! Here are some pictures of our night!

And the beat goes on...

Today has just been one of those days... It started off with a wakeup call from work asking where I was. Yes, my alarm decided to NOT go off this morning and I over slept. Fabulous...just what I need for starting a new job. Luckily I work with some very nice people and they completely understood. I did however manage to take a shower, get ready, and be in my car all within 15 minutes....yeah that takes talent! haha (Coming from the girl who takes 1.5 hours to get ready!) Well after that my day was just crazy and to that! Anyways, I have had a lot on my mind lately. Not being around blogging world is on my mind constantly. I HATE being away from the Internet. It is seriously killing me. I think about all you bloggers 24-7 and pray daily for all of you. I'm trying to get to the Internet more regularly but this summer is going to be here and there I'm afraid.

Well the weather is finally showing signs of summer which makes me happy. Although I'm working 5-6 days a week, it still is a good feeling to wear sandals and dresses! Work is going good and I'm finally done with training. I've been put on the schedule as a regular employee and I keep getting praised by my manager which really has kept me going. It is still hard to get used to this "real world" life style but its slowing growing on me.

As for the house...I have pictures on my camera but don't have them uploaded yet unfortunately. I'm so in love with it though! It is in dire need of some TLC but it will get there. Tyler and I started planting some veggies and flowers in our little garden and he's planning on starting some inside demolition this weekend. We also met our neighbors and they are super nice! They are a young couple with 2 dogs and glad that we are moving in and not some old people...hehe They are going to be a lot of fun!

Ok well I better get to bed and set TWO alarms tonight...HA! I miss you all terribly and I'll try to be back as soon as I can. XOXO

Birthday Pictures & Thank Yous

Hi friends! I know I haven't been around lately and its getting worse and worse. Work is really "taking over" my life right now. Good news though...Tyler closed on his house yesterday so "we" now have a house!! However, the condition of the house is not so good....good thing he's my construction man! ;) Ok so here are some pictures from my birthday party...beware...young men and women have a good time! hehe....

AND... THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to Paula and Nikki for my PIF gifts! I got a Starbucks gift card from Paula and a book from Nikki that I've started reading and I'm loving it! You girls are so amazing and I'm so thankful to have "met" you! I know I still owe gifts to my top 3 and I'm planning on shopping for them early next week. My life is just chaos right now so give me time... ;) Love you all and I'll be back soon! (Thanks for all the birthday wishes!!!)
