6 months

Happy 6 months, my love!! These past 6 months has been the most amazing months of my life. I have never felt more in love with someone as I do with you. I love you more today than I did the day we got married. You are the funniest, caring, and most lovable best friend anyone could ask for. I'm looking forward to what the next 6 months will bring us. I'm so proud of you in all your determination this past year. I love you!


I had the most amazing birthday! My friends and family are amazing!
John brought me roses at school. It was a wonderful surprise! My card said "Happy Birthday to my wife". I about lost it. It was the most wonderful feeling in the world.

Apparently, everyone knows my love for doughnuts and hot chocolate! 3 different friends brought me Dunkin Donuts. It was so delicious! That evening, John and I went out to a very romantic dinner. I had an amazing day and I can't thank everyone enough for all the well wishes, gifts, and love. It was the PERFECT day :)

Today is the Bishop Christmas party (his moms side of the family). John made a gumbo yesterday for today. We leave for Louisiana Thursday so we're trying to get the house cleaned and the packing finished. See y'all soon!

Lazy, Lazy, Lazy

This has been a very lazy weekend, which I am so grateful for. First off, Happy Birthday Lin! I hope you had a great day! Yesterday I went meet a friend, Clint, for lunch. I haven't seen him in over a year and we both live in Indy. So that was fun. I pulled into the mall and quickly did a U-turn out of it! It was so packed I couldn't even handle the thought of going in. I came home, relaxed a bit, then went to the Laker's Christmas party. It was fun, I really enjoyed seeing some of Johns family who I haven't seen in a while.Today has been really lazy and relaxing. To make a long story short I was given a $60 giftcard to the spa from someone at school who didn't want to use it herself and expires tomorrow. I asked my friend Kate if she wanted to go get manicures since they are only $30 and we wouldn't have to pay anything. We stopped at Target to get pizza hut then to the spa which was wonderful. I came home and popped a brisket in the oven. John is in Batesville today to see his niece and nephew in a concert. He's the laziest of us all...

"Whatcha doing mom?"

One more full week of school! I'm so excited. Friday is our Chanukah play so it'll be a stressful week but hopefully it will fly by. I hope everyone has a great week!

So Coolllllddddd....

This past weekend it decided to get cold. John and I, his parents, his sister and her family, and his aunt and uncle all spent the weekend in Madison, IN. It's a very small town on the Ohio River. There are lots of cute shops. We stayed at a place called Cliffty Inn. It's on top of a hill and it's gorgeous. You can see the river from the hotel rooms. It's so beautiful. Anyway, we got there about 7pm Friday night. John and I went to a small, intimate Italian restaurant. It was so small and the food was wonderful. We met his family at a winery a couple of blocks away and then to the indoor hot tub at the hotel. Saturday we shopped and had massages. Well, me and his mom did. There was a Christmas parade at 4 that afternoon. It sucked though. We all went out to dinner and was back at the hotel by 7pm. We all got into our jammies, drank wine and played Apples to Apples until midnight. Sunday morning we left early so we could pick up Riley on our way home. We really had a great weekend and I'm already looking forward to doing it next year! Sunday night we put up our Christmas tree. It was really fun, especially since we weren't going to put one up in the first place. We are having Christmas at our house January 2 with the Brays since we won't be here for Christmas. Here is Riley in the tree box.
The tree when it's all said and done.

This is what I opened the door to yesterday morning. I was like "Are you kidding me??!!" Oh well, the roads weren't bad. Today was such a weird weather day. It started off raining alot. By the time I got to school the sun started to come out. About 20 minutes later it was sleeting really hard. The wind started picking up and was gusting up to 50 miles an hour. When I left school at 1:45, my car doors were frozen shut. The wind chill was 15 degrees. Yikes!! Unfortunately, I didn't put gas in my car the day before like I should of and the gas light came on as I was driving home. I had to stop and freeze to death as I filled up. *sighing* Lesson learned.
Anyway, nothing much else going on. I work 2 long days tomorrow and Friday. Saturday night is John's sister, Amy's, Christmas party. I'm so ready for the weekend...and some warm weather.
