So very behind (Part 2)

And now to continue on with the photos.

February 21st-My friend, Amy, and I at her bachelorette party. There were (including her and myself) three brides to be there. We had a lot of fun!

I’m not much of a party girl at all. I would much rather go to a quiet bar, have a drink, eat some fries, and talk. But every once in a while it’s fun to get out with some friends.

I’m super happy for Amy and her fiance. It’s about time she found someone. She’s such an amazing person.

February 22nd-Pete and I went to my little sister, Natalie's show. She was Ariel and she did so amazing. I'm so proud of her.

My little brother and sister are apart of Journey Theater and we’ve been WAITING for Natalie to get a better part in the plays she’s been taking part of. Anyway, she finally got a good part..And not just a good part but the lead role in “The Little Mermaid Jr”!!! She did so awesome. It was a lot of fun to watch.

February 23rd-Not the best photo, but the other one I had wasn't super great.  Anyway, this my dog Sam and sister Amanda. I thought it was funny there were doing the same thing.

Amanda and Sam are best buds.

February 24th-My math homework. Fractals. They make my head hurt. Especially the Dragon fractal to the 8th stage. Yuck

I’ll leave the 25-27th for another blog.

Well! That feels good to be caught up. Yay!

In other news I am now 4 days away from Amy’s wedding, 24 days away from Spring, 22 days until the end of school (only 5 days of classes!!!!), and 116 days until my wedding. It’s all downhill from here.

Yoga has been going pretty well. It definitely helps to have it after Math because I get so concentrated on getting the moves down that I forget about all the other things I’ve been thinking about.

Downward Dog is a lot easier now and feels more like a resting position…But mostly just in comparison to other moves. I feel like I’m getting more flexible and it’s getting easier to stay in a position longer than before.

Anyways…I’m going to crash for the night. Plus I’m more interested in re-watching an episode of Downton Abbey at the moment anyways.

Adios.

So very behind (Part 1)

I have a serious problem. I’m super flaky lately. With school, work, wedding planning, trying to keep up with friends, spending weekends with Pete, my friends wedding…I think I might go crazy. Haha

Actually I’m fine. Really what has happened to the whole blogging thing is that I found it took the back seat and other things became priority. I still did the picture thing (so this one will be a long one) cause I’m determined to keep up with what I started.

So here it goes…stay with me!

Ok I’ll leave it there…Just so one entry isn’t so stinking long. See you in part two!

Cooped Up

Portland weather is completely unpredictable. This weekend has been awful.

What happened to when I was a kid and would go out in the snow and play for days? When things being cancelled was exciting and a relief? What happened to not caring about how cold it is or how icy the roads are?

Oh yeah-I grew up and got a job and a fiance.

Last week started off super busy with the last of my trainings and trying to get the lesson schedule done at work and then Thursday hit us with a big snow storm that left us stuck in the house until this afternoon and they skill cancelled school. It took me a half hour to dig my car (Penny) out of the driveway.

Saturday I got so sick of being in the house I decided to walk to the store and ended up carrying two cans of chili, a jug of milk, and hot dogs in a bag all the way back. Not the smartest idea I’ve ever had-but that’s alright.

I wouldn’t mind getting an unexpected weekend off from work and everything if it didn’t mean I couldn’t go anywhere. Sunday Portland issued a warning to not go outside because of the icy conditions.

You central states and maybe eastern states may laugh at our whining over here-but not only were we completely unprepared, but it isn’t the same here as it is everywhere else. Plus the ice makes it hard for anyone.

But with that being said-I’ll be the first to admit that some people here make a bigger deal out of it than there really needs to be, plus there are some terrible drivers here. Some people tend to be overly confident and that ends them in an accident.

Onto the challenge.

February 4th-I got Peter's ring not too long ago. I waited to post it because he didn't know I had gotten in yet.  Sorry-No picture yet, just a teaser! But it's perfect.

Wedding plans are moving along nicely. I’m trying really hard to get the majority, if not all, of the planning done ASAP so I don’t have to stress and worry too much later.

February 5th-My morning meal for those 5am shifts.

Instant oatmeal is seriously my life saver. I have a bad habit of not eating most of the day. This has kept me from doing that too much. 🙂

 

February 6th-I got the school and needed a drink of water. Only then did I realize the water had been completely frozen while in my car over night.

And so starts the snow storm.

February 7th-I was not happy to wake up to this. I wasn't too upset about the day off-but I didn't know it'd be the WHOLE weekend.

This was just the beginning.

February 8th-Everything iced over just on time for my nieces 8th birthday party. Poor thing had to cancel her big plans and not as many people turned up. I'm glad we made it though.

The ice ruined the weekend for sure. No visit with the fiance. The realization brought on some crying on my part for sure. Ha

February 10th-A box of letters I've collected since I was 8 (I even found a card from when I was born).

All the negativity aside..There is one good thing to say about being cooped up-I got a LOT of cleaning and organizing done this weekend. I threw away a lot of stuff I didn’t need. There’s always more to do, but I’m glad I got done what I did.

Crazy part was I threw away a white garbage bag full of home work I’ve had since freshman year of high school. Crazy.

Well I’m sorry about the late post-I hope you all enjoyed your weekend!

 

So. Much. Partying!

Last week was completely insane-and this weekend was even crazier. I’ve been trying to keep myself sane and as a result I’ve become a bit like a zombie. At work I find that while I’m guarding I’m all focused and alert, but once I’m back in the office I’ve almost forgotten what I was just doing. School isn’t helping with this and neither are the trainings I’m supposed to be doing at work.

School has been interesting lately. I never expected that I would be doing a drawing for Math class.

January 29th-My tesselation project for Math class. Bird. :) I suppose I could have gotten more creative, but I just wanted to get it done.

I always look forward to the weekend ’cause it’s when I get to see Peter, but this weekend held so much more than I thought it would.

A good friend of mine (and the family) got engaged this last year and is getting married soon. So I ended up at her house for her bridal shower.

January 31st-Amy with her ribbon bouquet. She's so pretty!

My sister was very insistant that she wasn’t going to find out the gender of her baby. I was SUPER insistant that she did find out. I have no patience. Haha So she decided to do a Baby Gender Reaveal party. It ended up being more crowded and fun than I thought it would be.

I have been in the room for 7 births. Call me crazy, but it is truly amazing seeing that baby for the first time. Although I don’t enjoy seeing…Well you know. 😉 Anyways-I could go on and on about babies, births, and life but I think that’s more for a blog on it’s own so we’ll move on.

January 30th-Here's the envelope with the results. It was torturous holding it.

I’m going to move fast between days so I can write the other blog I have. There were a couple unexpected things this weekend so I have more pictures. So stay tuned for that.

February 1st-My sister, our friend Amy, and her husband cutting the cake and finding out they are having a 4th GIRL!  My brothers were excited, but they really wanted a boy. haha

Alright-Who’s a SeaHawks fan?!

February 2nd-Ok...Aparently Amy is the main feature of this blog. Haha Go SeaHawks!!!

Every year I go to our friends house to watch the Super Bowl. I’m not the biggest football person, however I’m a huge sports person having played sports since a kid. Anyway-It was really fun to have a team from close to home go to the Super Bowl and actually win. It was awesome. I did feel a little bad for the Broncos though.

February 3rd-A special package came in the mail today. My cake topper! And it's perfect. I'm sooooo excited to use it at my wedding. I don't know why I had such a hard time finding a topper I liked, but this one is awesome.

I’m making quite a few big strides in the wedding planning. It’s a lot of work, but I have a lot of people who are always willing to help-which is awesome.

This last week and weekend has left my brain all jumbled, but that could be mostly due to lack of sleep. Hopefully I catch up because I would really rather not get sick.

Tip: Got a cold? Eat an Orange…or….Just get a lot of Vitamin C, sleep, and water.

Ok-off to make that other blog!
