My weekend turned out to be pretty fun. On Friday we went and saw a movie with Logan and Eric and Ashlee, then went to Logan's house and played ping pong. On saturday I had a girl's day with my friends Maddie and Amanda. Maddie is getting married so we all met for lunch at the Macaroni Grill, then went dress shopping for her. She found the most beautiful dress that she ended up buying. Since we were at the Riverwoods we decided to do a little bit of shopping and ended up all buying the same sweater from victoria's secret, and got free puppies to go with them. (I gave my puppy to my real puppy, Mimzy, and she is having a blast with it.) After that we all went to amanda's apartment and watched a movie and did make overs. It was really nice to have a girls day for a change.
Sunday it was back with the boys. Logan Brady and I took Mimzy and went snowshoeing. Some might say this isn't an appropriate Sunday activity but we were enjoying Gods work in nature and had a great time. When it turned dark we went home and had dinner with brady's family and then back to Logan's again where Eric and Ashlee met us for a board game and an episode of lost (which by the way, the next and last season is coming so soon!). That was probably the busiest weekend, that doesn't include working on the basement, that I've had in a long time and I had a lot of fun. So I guess my high hopes were met.

Random Ramblings

Real Estate school is really boring. I have to finish it before I start school in March so most of my free time consists of listening to old people talk in monotone until I can't think anymore. At first everything was just going over my head but I'm starting to understand more of what it is saying now. I don't want to do Real Estate full time, but it would sure be nice if I could sell a few houses to help me pay for esthetics.

Today Brady had a dentist appointment so he had to leave work early. So I have to get a ride home with a co-worker/friend. My boss just came up to me and said, "Jessica, I'm gonna need you to leave early today". They don't like us to get overtime so if we meet our 40 hours early we have to clock out. I always want to leave early, but of course he says it on the day that I don't have a car.
I am so burned out at this job. Its really not a hard job its just the same thing over and over all day after a year can get really annoying, and mostly I'm just sick of sitting in a cubicle all day.

I'm really excited that its the weekend and look forward to what it will bring. Hopefully we will move forward on the apartment. I realized I haven't posted any pictures on here of it yet so I'll try to get to that soon. But We are working on the kitchen now but we've had some complications so it will probably take longer than planned. and hopefully we will be going snow shoeing as well(which shall also bring pictures). and then a relaxing Sunday.

anyway, my co-workers are ready to leave so until next time.....

Happy Anniversary to me!

Brady got me a new car! A 2001 Subaru Forester! Isn't he the best husband in the world?!

......ok the truth is, Our anniversary was on Sunday and we both forgot about it until about 2:00 in the afternoon when Brady asked what we wanted to do for our anniversary. When we looked at our calander to see what day it would be on we were both surprised to see it was that day. Our Second year and we already forgot... is that a problem? Anyway, back to the car. Last year the day before our anniversary our car broke down so we spent our whole anniversary car shopping until we found the perfect car, our 2003 Subaru Forester! So I always said thats what Brady got me. Now year two, we spent sunday night looking online for cars (because i need one once i start school :), and we just happend to find this car and everything about it fit so yesterday we went to test drive it and fell in love and today Brady brought it home for me!

I just don't know how Brady is going to match this next year.....

I'm Going to School!

I've been debating for the past 2 years whether or not i should go to school and various things have stopped me from doing it. This time its for real! I start on March 9th at the "Skin Science Institute of Laser and Esthetics". I'm so excited! I get to quit my job and go full time, so I should be done in 8 months. After that I'll decide if I want to go a step further and get more education with the lasers (which as of right now I do). I have a friend at work who is thinking about signing up as well which would be a lot of fun! I can't wait, and I'll have a kit that I don't have to take to school and use on customers so I'll be able to practice on family and friends!

Christmas and New Years...

I know I'm late but I thought I'd let you know how our holidays went. Christmas was great! We spent Christmas Eve with Brady's family and Christmas morning with my family. I gave Brady a computer to install into his car (that my brother Hank got all set up and did tons of work to gather the parts for me) and he absolutely LOVES it! It was so fun to watch him as he realized what it was. I got a pair of really nice snow boots that I've been wanting, and a ton of clothes and hair product. One of my favorite things though was having Danica in town! I love spending time with
her and her cute little family.

New Years was a little less exciting. I got bronchitis and was basically in Bed for two weeks. So my News years consisted of me playing a quick game of rummi cube with my cousins, Nate and MC, and Brady. Then I curled up on the couch and barely stayed awake until we went and watched the ball drop on tv. then immediatly went home and to bed.

That was just the beginning of my sickness later on I had to go stay at my mom's house so poor brady could actually get some sleep, and so the drywall dust didn't kill me!

Overall we had a great holiday and are excited for our new year goals (even though i couldn't start the main one of working out becuase i couldn't breathe!)
