1st Anniversary!!!

On Monday Joe and i celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary!!! It was so nice that he had the day off, not that we did much, we just enjoyed doing some of things we like to do together, we went and looked at getting him new golf clubs, went to dinner, went to a movie and then we came home and cut and ate the top layer of our wedding cake, believe me i was hesitant to try it but i couldn't believe how GOOD it was :) We also got out our champagne flutes we used and had a toast to a wonderful 100 years of marriage! :)

It is hard to believe how fast the time has gone by, we are excited to see what the next year has in store for us.

We are looking to take a vacation in January, but are still not sure of where to go, at that point in the year anything warm with a beach will be looking great!!!

Until next time, take the time to remember the details, you will miss them when they are gone.

September 14, 2008

Yesterday was the big game and the HAWKS WON!!!!! I was very excited to see that!!!! :)

It is hard to believe the weekend is almost over already! Sundays just go by too fast. I have been watching CNN about hurricane IKE and i just can't believe all the damage it has caused in Texas and the rain is continuing. My thoughts and prayers are with the families down there.

I received an email from a friend of mine (Alana, Hi if you are reading this:) ) and she said she is going to be coming back to Iowa in Oct! I am very excited to see her and meet her baby, who will be 10 months old my then!! I will also be excited to see my other friend (Emily, Hi if you are reading this :))who is expecting their first baby this Feb!! I can't wait to see her cute little belly :) I also wanted to write and say that Joe's sister, my sister in law just got engaged this weekend, so we are happy for her and can't wait to see the planning turn into her wedding day! Other than that i have nothing else for the day!!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Until next time.

September 11, 2008

I have decided to try this blog thing to keep everyone posted on the things going on in our lives. I can't believe today is the 7th anniversary of 9/11, i remember that day like it was yesterday. I am still saddened by all the lives that were lost and i still pray for the families of the victims.

In 11 days Joe and i will be celebrating our 1 year anniversary!!! We are so excited, we were visiting last night when he got home and we both said we couldn't believe how fast the year went by. We are growing as a couple and i know i chose the best person in the world to share the rest of my life with, i can't wait to see where our future takes us.

My grandparents are selling their house they have lived in for 50 years and are downsizing, they had an offer go in today on the house i have not heard back on what the outcome was. I have mixed emotions about the whole thing, it is going to be weird to drive by that house and know they don't live there, we have spent many holidays and other occasions there. They have purchased a new home, which is very cute and perfect for them and their new love Brutus their black pug, he is adorable!! :) He is spoiled rotten and keeps them going every day.

As for our careers, i am still waiting to land my dream job in health care, but i am being patient and waiting until that day comes. Joe is still working at the hospital, he now has weekends off which is a change for both of us because for the last 5 years he has never had weekends off!!!

Saturday is one of my favorite days of the year!! It is the Iowa vs Iowa State game! I am a die hard hawkeye fan so i am going to be cheering for BLACK and GOLD!!!!

Until next time, remember to think others, i always say do something nice and your "pay it forward" will come!!
