My En Gedi

Last week at church, week 2 of "real marriage" we discussed love language and we were to make a list of what one another loves and appreciates/adores of the other and share it. We also discussed one anothers En Gedi (oasis) of a date. So I told James mine would be us cuddling on a bed of blankets and pillows, watching a movie, pop some popcorn, and order in some food. So yesterday was my En Gedi and it was so much fun. Just us staying in at home, spending actual time with one another. No phones, just us. We're not use to having dates like these. We usually go out for our dates. But it was  nice to stay home. We home to do it more. This weekend we will be doing his En Gedi. I'm excited. :)

Ending of Week 2

So again another week of the up and down weight. I'm not going to talk about that but I just wish it can get down.

I didn't talk about this at the beginning of this week but last Saturday I babysat Emma and Chance with Mama D. It was very fun and it kind of had a lot of emotions running. It makes me think of me and James. I know he would like to have a kid or at least the thought of having a kid right now would be awesome. But I told him that there is more to it. Like we would be okay right now if we decided to have a kid right but I want to wait till I'm done with school or at least in my last year of school. After being with Emma and Chance, it really makes me want to have one but I know we NEED to wait.We need to live our life a little. 

But enough about that.

This week was my official first week of school. It was quite interesting. I'm only going 2 days a week which is better, gas wise. And then I have an online class which I'm a little scared about but so far so good. In my crime scene investigation class we did our first lab and we casted our shoe impressions in the dirt, we did ink impressions of our shoes and biofoam impression with our shoes. We then casted our thumbprint with mikrosil and an item that has tool marks. 

The past couple Sunday's James and I have been going to Michael's church because they've been having a "real marriage" session (I guess that's what you can call it). I think it has been helping us but I kind of miss our church.The subjects that they talk about are awesome and opening our minds and bringing us closer than ever. They give you "homework" and this week we were to make a list. I was to make a list of things I appreciate/adore of my husband. He was to make a list of thing he loves about me. And we are to share them with one another. Then we are to discuss our ultimate En Gedi (oasis) date. And we are to make it come true. So tonight is my night. We are going to order in pizza, order a few movies, lay out a pallet and we are going to pop some popcorn, watch the movies and just cuddle. 

But I will let you know how that goes :) <3

Week 2

So again another week of up and down with my weight. I just don't get it. I work so hard at it all. But I am going to keep pushing myself, I'm not going to give up. 
School started Thursday. I'm taking 2 classes: 1 at SCTC and 1 is an online class. I'm a little nervous about the online class. My class at the school, I think will be okay. I don't really like the people in the class because they talk when he is talking. It's distracting and disrespectful but besides that I think it will be a very neat class. We will be doing a lot of labs. I wish I was able to take more classes this semester but there wasn't any classes that I had to take. I just hope there is some in the summer semester. I know there isn't a lot during the summer semester but I hope there is something I can do. 
My mom asked me if I wanted to go to the Philippines with her in the month of June but I'm not ready yet. I love to travel and everything but there is just a lot of stuff going on this year. 
This weekend I started on our cabinets. I hope they turn out good. I nervous. But so far so good. I'm excited. I will post about it's turnouts later. But for right now I'm going to do a few things around the house and then time for the gym.

Week 1

So this week was not only the 1st week of a new year but also the 1st week of a new health plan. This week was tough and aggravating. Day 1, Monday, I weighted in at 132 and each day I was down one (131) then back up one (132) and when I weighed in today I was 132 again. I did good with eating the healthy things, eating every 3 hours light meals. I probably need to drink a couple more glasses of water. But I went to the gym everyday except today. I enjoy doing the R.I.P.P.E.D class with Susan at Golds. That class really wears you out. 
Also I have been thinking about redo-ing our cabinets in our kitchen and bathrooms. I've been thinking maybe brown in the bathrooms but now that I've put some thought into it I may just do brown in the guest bath and maybe gray in ours and then for the kitchen I'm still deciding. Pinterest has been helpful, but I will update you on that. But I think it's almost time for some football.  GO FALCONS!!

Ringing in the New Year

Happy New Year!!  
I hope everybody had a good time on New Year's Eve. Unfortunately mine was not all that great. I know next year and from now on I'm done trying. I just don't understand people. 
But on to the good. So now that it's 2012, I, like majority of others, have New Year resolutions.
Not in any specific order because I need to work on all:
  1. Workout - Goal: 120 lbs 
  2. Eat Healthier/Cut portion
  3. Be an awesome wife - vocally, emotionally, mentally
  4. Save money - set a budget
  5. Get creative - make art
  6. Learn new things - in and out of school 
I think that is majority of it. 
I already started being creative. Since James got me a sewing machine for Christmas, I got some fabric to make me an apron. It's was complicated at first and it's hard at times. But I'm slowly getting there. But of course with practice I will get better. I started knitting another scarf. Also I'm thinking about posting my progress with being healthier and working out. So wish me luck through my process.
