My Monday Nights

So tonight I got home from work, and Rob and Beudreaux and I went for a run/walk. I am having to build up some major endurance for right now it's a slow process for this whole "running" thing. However, I tried. I nearly saw the pearly gates of Heaven while experiencing what must have been hell on earth, but I tried =) Anyway, we came back home and I fixed dinner. After cleaning up, it's time to relax =)

Sadie and Beudreaux fight over tennis balls, and tennis ball material-like toys...among some other squeaker toys and such. Rob enjoys relaxing on the couch perpindicular to the loveseat I veg on, and I sit and smile and admire my crazy, hectic, almost magic, wonderful, beautiful life.

Anxiety all around =)

I can't wait for this wedding. I can't wait foy my dress to come in. I can't wait for all of the details to be set. I can't wait! I am so anxious for all of these things! I sure do wish I had been equipped with better patience for these kinds of things. I don't have any pictures of my dress, the store didn't allow them. The dress is a brand new design, so it's not on the designer's website. I can't even go try ON my dress at the store we purchased it from, because it was only there for that one weekend, for a trunk show!!!! Hmmmph. This is really hard for me =). But I am trying. Rant off.

Starts in my Toes =)

I love, love, love this song. Puts me in the happiest of Moods!!!!

Home Sweet Home

Pictures of the house...the house with few decorations...but hey, that will change-I hope! At least that is what I keep telling myself and others when they comment about the lack of pictures on the walls!! But you see, Rob and I both have this complex about jabbing holes into the walls, and sticking stuff up there, only to realize in the grand scheme of things, it doesn't look so hot. So you take it down. Left with a hole. So, I have thoughts in mind as to what I would like on the walls, and I will eventually get there. Also, please excuse our "kids" toys scattered across the living room rug....I swear I am just preparing Rob for the future :)

Anyway, the pictures are all out of order etc etc...but you get the idea.

I folded....

I did it. I folded. I don't quite know what to think =) I never thought I (hmm, or we) would have a blog. Of course, Rob doesn't quiiiite know about this yet...but hey..that's ok, right??? We'll see how it all works out. It seems like everyone and their dog has a I suppose we (and our dogs), should too!!

Well- lets see here...first things first. Rob and I are engaged!!! We are getting married October 11, 2008 and we couldn't be more excited!! I think Rob is just as excited that I've done a majority of the wedding planning without annoying him, as I am for the wedding itself =) Oh well. According to other females (and males) and all of the dozes of wedding planning articles I read each day, planning the wedding isn't something MOST men get thrilled about. Which is fine with me!

Basically Rob has just asked me to tell him what day and what time to show up, and he will be there. Although, I do think that need to make it clear, that I expect him to show up sober to the festivities that day, LOL. I think I will have someone spy and make sure that he gets to bed at a decent hour on that Friday night.

Ok- so we are getting married and we couldn't be happier. Spending our lives together is going to be absolutely amazing. Thick and thin, hills and valley's, we are in it! Mark your calendars. October 11, 2008.

So we also have 2 dogs. Beudreaux, and Sadie. Hence the picture above... Beudeaux is an almost 5 year old Lab, who is more human, than dog. Sadie is our Schnauzer: aka-"our pistol". She is a mess. Love, love, love that girl...but she is such a troublemaker!!! She just turned 1. As most people who have dogs, and do not yet have children, these critters are our "kids" Pain in the butts lots of the time, but a joy to have around! Our life would be much less eventful if we didn't have these pups!!
Rob and I just built our first home. We signed the contract in February, and we closed on the house on August 17th, 2007. That also happens to be the very day we got engaged!!!!! (as well as my parents anniversary). Anyway, I will post the story of "the engagement" but that will have to be another time. We love this house, and it is just what we need for a good while. Decorating will be a slow process, but are you really ever 100% satisfied with your home?? Males..probably are until something breaks. Females...ehhhh, we always want to tweek something!!!
Anyway, that's the deal for now. Since I am nosey and like to keep in touch with others via the internet, I suppose it's only fair that I return the favor...even though our lives are pretty uneventful...knock on wood =)
