PB & J and Scrabble by candle light

Well last night was interesting. I had to babysit Sofia and Max until like 9:30 last night and J was home by himself just hanging out and playing xbox (what a surprise haha). It started getting stormy out but I figured it would just pass. Around 8pm, J texted me and told me the power went out in the apartment...well not just our apartment but the whole apartment complex..every building..and the traffic lights right outside..and the shopping center across the street. I figured it would kick back on within the hour...well I was soo wrong.

The power stayed out all night long. But instead of getting grumpy and complaining about the heat we made the best of it. We made yummy PB & J has be forever since I had a good peanut butter and jelly sandwhich. And then we played scrabble in the dark with a few candles lit. Surprisingly, it was alot of fun. It was a little hot in the apartment, but it was fun. We had nothing bothering us. Both our cell phones were just about dead and we couldn't charge them. We couldn't watch any shows or play any xbox. We couldn't check facebook or email. It was relaxing...really relaxing. J and I had time to just hang out and enjoy each others company. We weren't distracted by the outside world. It was a lovely evening to just catch up and enjoy each other. I hated that the power went out..but I loved the time got to spend with my man :)

I've also noticed I'm getting a few more followers...hello and thank you to everyone who is reading ths blog :) I know at times it may be boring and I know I slack off wayyy too much. But to my followers, thank you for reading and I enjoy reading all of your blogs :)

I'm back..finally!

Hello hello hello! I've missed you all sooo much!! I hope everyone has had a wonderful last couple of weeks! J and I got back from our vacation to Myrtle Beach early Saturday morning. And since then I've been catching up, running errands, doing lotsss of laundry, catching up on blogs, and I got a small part time job for the summer. It's Nannying for these adorable kids. Sophia and Max. I absolutely adore them already. But I finally have some time to blog! Yayyy! :)
Myrtle Beach was soo much fun! I did things and ate things I never thought I would. haha. I hate to admit this..but I don't know how to swim. I just have to laugh at myself. It's funny that I'll be 21 in less than a month and I don't know how to swim. Buttt I let J take me out into the ocean. Normally I'll walk out to about my knees. But I was feeling brave last week, so I went out alot farther than I think I had wanted. But it was soo much fun. It's a good thing I trust him haha! I also tried food I never thought I'd eat. I'm a veryy picky eater. Butt I tried alot of new things. Needless to say, I'm soo proud of myself! It was a really great week. I'm soo happy we got to visit some place neither one of us had been. And it was alot of fun hanging out with my dad and brother. Here are a few pictures from our trip!

This was hanging on the wall in a restaurant. They had a whole wall dedicated to the troops.

Sorry it's been soo long

It feels like it's been forever since I've written. Last week I was really really sick. It started right after I moved in with Jeremy. It started as a simple headache..that just got progressively worse. My face and sinuses were killing me. I knew I had allergies...but I didn't think it was that severe. I've never felt such pain before. It still hurts a little bit but def. not as bad! I tried so many different medicines but none really helped. Jeremy went to the store and bought me sudafed. It helps alot! But it knocks me out. So I usually take it right before bed to help me sleep. Other then being sick, life has been pretty good. Jeremy and I really love living together. I love being here when he gets home from work. I love waking up to him every morning and falling asleep with him every single night. Life has been really really great! I've been doing tons and tons of research for the wedding. Andd I think we've decided on the venue. So hopefully this week we'll be able to book it!! :) We leave for Myrtle Beach on Sunday..Jeremy's taking leave for the week. So hopefully we'll be able to get some wedding stuff accomplished this week before leave. I'm so excited. Just thinking of the wedding makes me so so so excited. But it feels so far away. I just can't wait till November of 2011!

Yesterday was Memorial Day. I must admit, before I met Jeremy, I never really thought about what Memorial Day actually means. To me, it was just the end of school, the start of summer, and time to hang out with friends. After I met Jeremy, and I became familiar with the military life and dealing with his deployment, I started realize how real this war really is. Memorial day is more than just a time for cookout and parties. It's more than just a reason for stores to have outrageous sales. It is a time for everyone to remember those who lost their lives fighting for our freedom. Even if you don't support the war, there are still men and women losing their lives to keep us free and perserve our futures. Memorial day, just like every other day, should be a day or rememberance, a day of prayer, and a day of thanks. No one will ever understand the sacrifice our brave men and women make to keep us safe. I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day. And I hope everyone remembered those men and women that gave their lives. We're free because of them. Freedom isn't free. And thanks to our brave men and women, we wake up every morning free to live our lives.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day! And, I promise I'll start writing more! I love reading all your blogs! :)
