We have talked about going to Vegas for a while; Zack use to live there and I have never been and there is so much he wants to show me. We want to go before we start having babies, because then it may be put off for a very very long time. So we finally planned it. It's hard a little bit to spend the money that could be used for more practical things, but after we bought our plane tickets I stopped worrying about it. I tend to have buyers remorse before I do things instead of after. We are going to go in December for a week! We are already planning where to go and what to do. I am the one who has traveled a lot in the past, and its really nice to have Zack being the one to know what to do and where to go. Its all new and exciting to me!
And now 2 major things we wanted to do before having kids (buying a house and going on vacation alone one last time) are being checked off the list.. dun dun dun

8 raNdOm ThinGs

My sister's in law did this and theirs made me laugh so I have to do it too :D
  1. In high school starting with 9th grade I was at least 1 minute late everyday to my first hour. By the time I hit senior year my teachers tried everything. I had to sit in the hall for 20 minutes, do 10 pushups for every minute late, detention, and finally intervention. I still can't seem to make it to anything at 8am. 7am I can do, or anytime after 8:30.
  2. I get cravings for salt and vinegar chips and chocolate milk at the same time.
  3. I can sing actual songs with words and all with my mouth closed, but cannot hum whatsoever, I sound completely tone deaf.
  4. Apparently when I am excited about something I am talking about I wobble my head. Zack is the only person who has ever noticed without me telling them.
  5. My favorite color is green, next is pink and brown together, but a lot of the time when I choose something it is a bright blue.
  6. I am 5'9" and the shortest in my family.
  7. I play an massive mutliplayer online role-playing game on a regular basis.
  8. I can do a back-bend and stand back up easily no matter how heavy I am.

I could make a list that is much longer than this but I better not.

marriage meme

Merry Weather tagged her readers to play along with the marriage meme. So without further ado, here are eight facts about our marriage:

1. We have been married for almost 2 years.

2. He proposed to me on our trip to Europe, in Hohenschwangau, Germany. We were next to a crystal clear lake made from melted snow underneath Neuschwanstein castle (which is what Cinderella's castle was made to look like). We had hot cocoa at sunrise and started to walk back and he asked,"So, you still want to be in a relationship for 3 years before getting married?" (i had told him previously that i planned this)

3. He is almost 5 years older than me, and I am quite happy with it.

4. Shortly after we married we got a pet :) Her name is Lucy she is a grey cat.

5. We just bought our first house together this year.

6. We rarely ever fight, in fact I don't remember one. Instead he tickles me until I get completely overwhelmed and chase after him, he laughs at my frustrations and in turn just makes me giggle.

7. We were together a year and half before our wedding.

8. We are both the baby of our families and it seems to have worked out quite well.

This is the Simpsons version of me. Today is my 23rd and 2 month birthday!
I am really happy its summer, even if it is sopping wet with humidity. I feel very back to normal and happy again. Im not really sure how long I haven't felt this way but its nice to be myself again. What comes with this is my desire to be social and silly and just play. Which in turn means I have not been so very productive at work. Nor have I done too much of my last couple weeks of homework. But hopefully I will get it all done before my last class on Monday.
I have been working on losing weight for a while now. And well, its not been the easiest thing for me to do. I lose weight on slim-fast, but I get bored after a while and just quit. Really giving up after 2-3 weeks has really been my problem for the last year. I totally crap out and just eat tons, go out to eat all the time and stop thinking about it. Then BAM! I gained the weight back I worked so hard to lose and maybe a little more. I don't have a problem telling people my weight, because well you can see what I look like.. does it really change your opinion of me if you know my exact weight? Maybe if I wore loose clothes all the time but I dont. So... anyways: Last year at this time I lost some weight down to 230. Then last December? my mom and I weighed and measured and I was up to 244. Oh boy was I excited... When I started Slim-fast again I was 241 and lost to 236. Then crapped out again. I tried Alli but I have trouble remembering to take pills at the right time. Now I am down to 232.5. But this time is different. I have slowly changed some of my habits. Im becoming a little more active, eating just a little bit less for dinner, trying to eat quite a bit less for lunch, and begun eating more fruit and veggies. These arent dramatic changes at all, but adding them together has made me have more energy and lose just a few pounds. And now I am actually WANTING to do active things. I rode my bike 5 miles 2 days ago. And I was exhausted, but I LOVED the way I felt when I was done. Especially since my hobbies mostly include going out to eat where I feel horrible for hours afterwards. Im sure the activity and vitamins Im getting from eating fruits and vegetables is a big cause for the improvement of my mood. Its nice to feel myself again and have motivation..even if it is just motivation to play!
