Project 365: Day 158- May 7th

Mother's Day is Sunday and so Corey, Ethan, and I sent flowers to my momma at work! I had to stop by and see them hehe! I was so excited when she texted me! So, I dropped my parent's laptop off to my dad at his college, then headed on over to my momma's work! It was Customer Appreciation day.. and well, I'm not a customer, haha, but they gave me a free hot dog, chips, and pop anyways! Whoohoo hehe! So here's a lovely shot of the flowers :)

I bought two new pair of shorts from Wet Seal and two new tank tops that I just LOVE. They were both on sale... I HAD to do it, haha :)

And today we got our new laptop hehe! We needed a new one cause of mine being destroyed thanks to McAfee (which we're working on getting to fix mine!) It's sooo nice! I am so in love with it lol! It has Windows 7! Amazing!

Today was Day 3 of our Love Dare challenge... and the dare was to buy something for each other. I bought Ethan superhero boxers and his mouthwash he's been asking for hehe and he bought us dinner last night from the Depot! It was yummy!

And the rest of the night we spent cuddled up watching Talladega Nights. Ethan's been asking me for days to sit down and watch it with him.. so we took last night to do that :)

Cheers to Project 365!

Project 365: Day 157: May 6th

The morning started off with Ethan having a big breakfast: french toast with strawberries, bananas, blueberries, powdered sugar, cinnamon, and syrup. Yummm! And of course, a nice glass of milk hehe :) I LOVE making him breakfast in the morning because I love seeing the smile on his face.. I love his thankful, appreciative attitude every time... and I LOVE knowing he has a full tummy to go to work on :) He's my boy. I just adore him.

After making him some breakfast, I got dressed and met my mom at Whit's Frozen Custard for some yummy in my tummy lunch hehe! :) I got 2 coney dogs, a bag of chips, and a pop for $3.50. What a deal, right? Mmm! And I bought Ethan a strawberry shortcake for Day 2 of our "Love Dare" challenge... "Love is Kind." :)

Then we got some deliveries! Ethan got his new phone (which he absolutely hates and wants to take back LOL) and we got our new printer! I am so thankful for it! Finally we're able to print things off at our apartment without having to go somewhere else to do it hehe! :) Thank You Lord for good deals!

And after opening our new printer and playing around with it, I did all the dishes from the night before (when my parents came over for dinner.) There were TONS of them and I was just lacking the motivation to do it all day long LOL But I finally got myself pumped up enough (thanks to some Lil Wayne, haha) and got them all done!

And the rest of the night, I spent curled up in my peejays, my leg propped up (cause it's been hurting SO bad here lately), and just relaxing watching some Ghost Whisperer and Vampire Diaries. Ethan went and played some basketball and rode his streetbike with some buddies, so I just had a nice, quiet evening at home. Then he came home and we were able to catch Supernatural. I just love that TV show and I'm so excited for the season finale next week!

Project 365: Day 156- May 5th

Our morning began by Ethan having some breakfast.. and we started The Love Dare challenge. Day 1 was "Love is Patient." The dare was to go all day long without saying anything negative to your partner. What a dare right? But how amazing. Saying negative things is the root of disagreements, anger, resentment, etc.

After we read our first chapter, Ethan left for work and I got started on chopping veggies and cleaning! My parents were coming over for dinner and I wanted everything to be perfect! This was the first time they were going to see the place and I was sooo nervous, haha! Obviously... since I was awake at 6AM cooking! LOL I chopped up all the veggies and stored those in containers, made the bed, dusted, organized our DVDs, vaccumed, scrubbed the kitchen and bathroom floors, mopped, did the dishes, organized the towels, cleaned the back bedroom, cleaned the bathroom sink, organized our shoes.... lots to do to make sure the house was in top shape before the parents came hehe! Here's a couple shots of the various rooms of the house AFTER being cleaned :)

And then it was time to cook! I made chicken ceaser wraps, pasta salad, and fruit/yogurt parfaits. Yummy!

(pasta salad included)

And after we all had dinner, we headed out for a walk to show our parents around town. We had such a good time! Ethan and dad talked cars, mom and I spent some much needed time together, we talked about random stories. It was so much fun!

Then we came home from the walk, Mom and Dad left to go home, and Ethan and I cuddled up to watch American Idol. Aaron Kelly got voted off... and Ethan and I's predictions for the Top 4 was correct! Casey, Mike, Lee, and Crystal. We are in full support of Lee winning! Totally Team Lee :)

Project 365: Day 155- May 4th

So, I woke up this morning with high hopes that this day would be a good day filled with working appliances, running cars, etc. Monday was a bit crazy, so my fingers were crossed that Tuesday was a little more peaceful. Wellllll, that wish did not come true, haha! I woke up to a non-working laptop. Lovely. Here McAfee had a virus upgrade a little while ago that sent tons of computers crashing-- yep, mine was one of them. So, I spent all day Tuesday trying to find someone to fix it. Well, it can't be fixed until the weekend, so my lovely mom let me borrow her laptop until Ethan's laptop is delivered later this week. God love her. I have so much school work that needs done! Hopefully my laptop CAN get fixed soon!

Once I got that taken care of... and I let BOTH of my parents see my burn, haha! I headed home. My parents seemed to be a bit worried about my leg.. and the fact that I'm no longer home for them to take care of it, lol. But I assured them Ethan has been a great doctor hehe! Here's a nice shot of my leg now:

Last night,Ethan and I decided to start the "Love Dare" tomorrow. I am so excited to begin this journey with him. We've been talking a lot about finding a church we both like, drawing closer to God together, and I think this book will be one of the things that helps. I am so excited! I'll of course bring you along this journey with us!

And then I watched American Idol! Can I just say that I do believe Lee Dewyze will be the one to take home the gold in this competition? He did amazing last night! They certainly saved the best for last! Big Mike did great too! I'm thinking the bottom 2 will be: Casey and Aaron and I do believe that Casey WILL be the one to go home. He just can't be versatile. Crystal did alright, but I think she'll still stay in the competition. I'll forever be Team Lee though :)

Project 365: Day 154- May 3rd

And our morning started off as usual: I got up about 5:15 and made Ethan breakfast, he ate, got ready, and left for work. I laid back down to get a few more hours of sleep LOL but I was awakened at about 7AM to Ethan saying "I broke down... car overheated." Poor fella was about 50 miles from home or so :( I felt so bad for him. So while doing laundry, my morning (from about 7AM to 10AM) was spent on the phone with him.. on again, off again.. until he got home. He finally called me at about 10:15AM... 10 jugs of water later.. and asked me to come get him. He was only about 5 minutes from the apartment bless his heart. And so, he spent the next couple of hours getting his car prepped to get worked on.

And after he got done with that, we headed over to my FAVORITE place in the village we live hehe! I got my usual: hamburger with bacon, lettuce, and onion... spicy curly fries... and mustard. Mmm! Quite the piggy, huh? haha!

Then, Ethan asked me if I wanted to go on a ride on his street bike. I said yes because he said he wanted to take me to see a BEAUTIFUL view. I was so excited! It took us about 10 minutes to get there and boy, was it worth it :) This picture doesn't even do it justice. Gorgoeus view of God's amazing creation. Literally took my breath away.

And after we got back, I went to get off the street bike and due to the engine being loud I didn't hear Ethan trying to instruct me on HOW to get off the bike. So, I just put my legs down.. and yep, you guessed it! I BURNED that sucker. It's bad. It hurts. It's nasty. It leaks, LOL I am not pleased! haha! Just not how I pictured my evening going LOL but Ethan, being the good doctor that he is, bandaged me up with some neosporin, got me laid down, got us some snacks, turned on a scary movie, and cuddled with me :) It was wonderful! We even went on a walk later... with a piggy back ride included hehe!

Then we went down to the basketball courts and Ethan played some ball with his friends and I, of course, watched and did some homework. It was a gorgeous day to just relax and enjoy the scenery :)

And the night ended with us going to Auto Zone to get stuff for Ethan's car, him treating me to Burger King for the ROUGH day I had LOL, and spending time at his mom's. And this is me. Happy. It's taken me awhile to get here, but I'm here and LOVING it. I thank God every day for the peace and happiness He gives.
Cheers to Project 365!

Project 365: Day 153- May 2nd

This rainy Sunday morning started off by sleeping in wayyyy too late, haha! And finally getting the rest of our dresser put together. Looks great, huh? The boys did a great job.. and Carrie hehe! I LOVE it! We both got 2 drawers... and wow, does the room look more organized! Here's our closet space too :)

And after we got that together, I made Ethan some breakfast since he had to go to work and I left and met my mom, dad, Corey, and Marie at Bob Evans for some yummy lunch. I got a hamburger with the works and some fries with a good ol' raspberry iced tea. My favorite! Yummy! When we were getting ready to leave, we were standing in line waiting and these two older gentleman totally crowded in front of us LOL we laughed for like ever over that, haha!

And here's the group standing in line at Bob Evans. From left to right, it's Dad, Corey, Marie, me, and momma. We had so much fun! I love hanging out with these guys!

And after Bob Evans, it was a night spent doing a paper and watching some TV. Cheers to Project 365!

Project 365: Day 152- May 1st

Frankie Muniz once said "Yeah I like cars and basketball, but you know what I like more? Bananas."

Chyea. We love bananas. Doesn't matter what kind. But seriously-- check out the banana on the left LOL Marie found that at their commons and brought it to my mom and dad's to show us! Look at it compared to a normal banana on the right LOL Crazyness! But anyways, the morning started with me driving to mom and dad's house and meeting Corey and Marie there. They decided to stay for the weekend, so I wanted to get there a little early to spend some time with them before heading to decorate for Kourtney's baby shower.

And you guessed it. We headed over to decorate for Kourt's shower. Here's a few shots of that:

(The entire room)

(Upclose of the tables)

Then mom and I headed back to the house, got ready, and went back for party time! :) The baby shower started @ 5PM.. and we had sooo much fun! Here's the table we sat at with Helen and Arianna:

And we played the diaper game where they melted chocolate and put it inside diapers and we had to guess what kind of candy bar it was by smelling it. How gross is that? LOL Here's a shot of me sniffing the diaper and the diaper itself, haha

Then we MADE BABIES :) bahahha. It was fun! LOL Here's my "baby"... funny, huh? :P

And I WON the word scramble game, whoohoo! 24/25 right baby! haha! I won some lotion and a nail file :)

And here's a shot of Kourtney, Helen, and me... the three amigos :) Can't wait to meet baby Kael!

And after the baby shower, I hung out with Corey and Marie for a few, then headed back down to the apartment where I played with playdoh LOL and Ethan and I watched some Fresh Prince :)

Cheers to Project 365!
