Project 365: Day 326- October 22nd

I finally got my reference page done for the project I was working on and it is submitted! It took me about 5 hours (yes, from the time I woke up til almost 2PM) but it got done and I am absolutely relieved hehe! Now everyone just needs to  pray and keep your fingers crossed that things work out :) I appreciate it!

Oh and I am LOVING the new hair cut! Thank you so much Montana for cutting it for me! What do y'all think?

I love it! Feelin' like a momma every day hehe! :)

And then I went to the grocery with my momma cause we needed some snacks at my crib, haha! Here's a finally full fridge:

Yes, this girl LOVES her snacks... haha! Pudding, apple sauce, jello, water, capri suns, and yes, my boyfriend works at 7up haha! Can you tell? :)

Oh and see those cheesesticks at the bottom?? AMAZING! They are jalapeno cheesesticks and I recommend those to anyone!! :)

And I bought the baby it's first package of diapers last night! :) What an amazing feeling hehe!

And.... my sweetheart finally came home after being out of town for a few weeks. I missed him oh so much!!

Cheers to Project 365!

Project 365: Day 325- October 21st

Woke up this morning and worked on some homework (yes, I am the QUEEN of procrastination, haha!) and then I worked on a reference page for a project I've been working on :) It's taking me SO much work, but it will be well worth it in the end, hehe!

And while I was working on that, I watched "The Forgotten." What an intensely weird movie, haha! It was kind of confusing, but I eventually got it figured out. I will say this though-- this is the 2nd movie this week I've watched about the government or a group controlling people through their minds, bodies, etc. It definitely makes you step back and think that "Hey, I wonder if this could ever happen in our world today?" Kind of scary!

And after getting my homework done, I decided to work on my blog layout. It is my goal to actually make my own blog layout that I just LOVE. I'm still working on it, but I'm learning all about certain programs like Gimp and Winzip. Here's what I have thus far. It's on my "tester page" as I don't want to tamper with this page because I do like it right now, I just want something nicer-- more personal.

What do y'all think? I have to get the header adjusted and move over, but I think I do like it. If you want to see it on your computer, click here.

And while I was working on that, I was a brave little girl. I have been trying to knock off as much off my Project 101 in 1001 as I can and I saw that "Pet Semetary" was on TV yesterday at 4, so I watched that. How freaking creepy, haha! Especially alone! lol But hey-- I watched a scary movie I'd never seen (which knocks a movie off my "Halloween Movie List") and I watched this movie and it was definitely out of my norm (which knocks a movie off my "Watch Movies You've Never Seen" list)

And once the movie was over-- it was time for my hair cut! I was SO excited about this, honestly! I have been so ready for a change for so so long! :) So, Montana came over and gave me a cute little "mom" cut hehe! That's what I keep calling it, haha! I just love it! And I sent Ethan pictures (because this is our 2nd day apart :() and he said "You are absolutely gorgeous. I love it and I cannot wait to see you. My best friend is so hot" haha! I just love him :)

And today marks 4 MONTHS PREGNANT! Oh, yes! I am so serious! I am 4 months pregnant already. Seriously, where does time go? I cannot believe that I only have about 21-24 weeks left... and we only have about 2.5 months left in 2010. I feel like yesterday was New Years Eve 2009. Life truly is a vapor and we have got to learn to appreciate every single thing that we have! :)

Here's my upclose tummy shot at 4 months:

And my full length shot, hehe:

Project 365: Day 324- October 20th

So, it was a sad, sad morning. We got up around 5AM and Ethan left to go out of town for work for a few days. Yes, I am heart-broken. I know there are many of you women out there that go without your husbands, boyfriends, etc. for months, but when you've never spent a night or day away from your significant other for almost 8 months, it's a heart-breaker when you actually do. I love this man more than anything-- and I'm just so ready for him to be back home in my arms again! Only a few more days... only a few more days.

And since Eth was going out of town, I went to my mom and dad's house for the day. I took a small nap at the beginning of the day haha (hey- I was exhausted LOL) and then I started working on my project and watched "White Noise." And oh my heavens-- I watched it alone! That's something! haha!

After that, mom came home and we went for a walk cause this pregnant lady needs her exercise, haha! and Mom made some yummy stir fry! :) Here she is cooking:

And here is her yummy meal:

Oh, it tasted amazing and it's so awesome to have someone else cooking for a change LOL! We had such a good dinner--- Mom, Dad, and I just sat around and chit-chatted... and watched one of my favorite episodes of "New Adventures of Old Christine." hehe! :)

Then we all settled in to our peejays and cuddled up to watch "Hocus Pocus-" my FAVORITE Halloween movie! :)

And I had a little visitor while watching the movie---

And, as always, I barely made it half-way through "Hocus Pocus" and I grabbed my cell phone and went to bed. After a phone call from my sweetheart, I went to bed!

Cheers to Project 365!

Project 365: Day 323- October 19th

I spent most of my day being productive... well, I don't know if you'd call it productive or not, haha! I worked on editing my blog. I want it to have a certain look.. and it STILL doesn't. So, I went through some tutorials to learn how to make a header, background, etc. But it didn't look like I desired. I don't know what I'm going to do. I guess I'll keep working on it and see what I can do. Here was the header I made. Thought it was pretty cute, haha!

It just seems like the header is entirely too big and then I can't get the background to upload because it says it's too big... it's sooo confusing! We'll see what happens. I'll keep working, haha!

After that, Ethan came home and we headed out to do some errands and pay some bills together. We stopped by the gas station and I got this YUMMY drink--Banana Colada. Oh my heavens! It has soo much calcium, vitamin C, vitamin A, and vitamin B in it! Not to mention, it tastes amazing! :) If you haven't ever tried it, I seriously recommend it! Healthy and tasty. Best of both worlds, eh? :)

And then I cooked a lasagna hamburger mixture and garlic bread for dinner! Ethan of course had me stop and get cottage cheese-- man can't eat anything italian without cottage cheese, I swear LOL Ethan's mom ended up coming over and she enjoyed some yummy dinner with us :)

Oh it was SO good especially because I was absolutely STARVING. Yum, yum, yum!

After we all spent some time together, Ethan and I got some showers and headed to bed to watch "Public Enemies." Yea, we made it about 30 minutes in to it before we started falling asleep, haha!! 

Cheers to Project 365!

And congratulations to our friends Josh & Kelly on the birth of their baby girl Gabriella today! :) We're close behind you guys, haha!

Project 365: Day 322- October 18th

This morning started off with working on a project that was due in class today :) We had to do an analysis on a course we've previously taken. I chose Arts & Humanities. It was interesting and it prepares me for my final project that's due in 5 weeks! Wish me luck, haha!

I basically worked on this project all day, made some dinner, and waited for Ethan to get home! :) We had hamburgers and cheesy potatoes..... yes, we are addicted to those! They are SO easy to make, haha! Tomorrow's dinner will be different though... trust me! :)

Once Ethan got home, we headed to Dollar General to pick up some things (new pot, air freshener for my car, and some winter type shoes)... then Ethan went to the fitness center to get his exercise on and I went with him and studied :) Here Ethan is playing some basketball:

And here is me-- the college student, haha! Had on my cute little indoor/outdoor slippers, comfy sweater, small thing of hot cocoa, and my book for class:

We did our own activities... together, hehe :) It was so much fun!

Then we came home, cuddled up under some blankies (after doing the dishes and getting showers, of course!) and we watched "The Crazies." Kind of a creepy, weird movie.. but pretty interesting actually!

And then-- we played "Candy Land" hehe! Ethan is bound and determined to beat me.... and he didn't do it last night, haha! Bless his heart. Here's his sad face:

And here's my happy face... cause I won 2 more times, LOL

Cheers to Project 365!

Project 365: Day 321- October 17th

We woke up this morning, grabbed some breakfast, and headed over to the old apartment to clean. Golly, it makes me nauseous just going over there now, haha! And oh, it makes me soooo thankful for our new home! I LOVE it so much :) After cleaning up the old apartment, we took a road trip to Heath! Ethan wanted to check out a truck up there and it was a gorgeous day out, so we thought-- why not? It was a beautiful trip, 60 degree weather. Mmm, perfect! And when we got there, they had candy and pop waiting for us haha! I had laffy taffy and a Sprite. YUMMY! :) Here's a shot of us heading home:

Once we got home, we were starving, so we stopped by Subway and got some Chipotle sauce (haha, we love it and wanted it for our hamburgers) and we came home and made some hamburgers for dinner! :) We had burgers with onions, cheese, and chipotle sauce. It was SOOOOO good!!

I also had barbeque chips. Gah, they were so good! It was a good, spicy meal :)

But sadly, while cooking the hamburgers, I burned my finger with grease! It was a sad, sad  day :(

After that, Ethan drove around on his street bike and I cleaned up the house before TJ and Laken came over for a movie night :) They were running behind, however, so Ethan and I got snuggled up in our flannel peejays and started watching "Failure to Launch" hehe! Here's Ethan snoozing on the recliner, already acting like a father, haha!

And once he "woke up," we got a tub of chocolate peanut butter chunk ice cream and shared it. Of course, we didn't eat all of it, but we enjoyed a good bit of it haha! :)

And FINALLY TJ and Laken came hehe! They brought the new Robin Hood with them, so we watched that. Unfortunately, I can't make it through a movie-- EVER anymore, haha, so I was out like a light on the floor, but it was still a fun night hehe! :)

Cheers to Project 365!

Project 365: Day 320- October 16th

This morning started off with heading to lunch with my mom, Grandma, brother, and his girlfriend. We went to Steak-n-Shake... MY FAVORITE! Grandma picked it, but boy oh boy, I was excited! I got a steakburger with bacon, lettuce, onion, tomato, and mustard; fries with cheese sauce; a salad with ranch dressing; and a Sprite.. and of course, I took a strawberry milkshake home for the boy, haha! :) This shot was kind of dark, so we took another one from another angle:

I look SUPER CHUBBY, haha! Please remember: I am almost 4 months pregnant LOL

And after that, I came home and threw some cheesy potatoes in the crock pot and sat and relaxed with Ethan for a while... then we couldn't stand just sitting around any longer, so we loaded the crock pot up in his car, got dressed, and headed to the bonfire at my parent's house. Here's everyone sitting around eating and the fire we all enjoyed! It was super cold last night!

And here's Ethan and I sitting by the fire:

And all of the happy couples, hahahahah! This picture CRACKS me up!

My Uncle John is a hoot! Brad was all alone sitting there so he decided to sit on his lap and be cuddly too! haha! :) Oh and Ethan and I were in a corn hole tournament... AND WON!! :)

haha! We had sooo much fun! :) 

Then we got super tired-- at like 10:00PM haha! We're party animals, what can we say?? Oh and we were super depressed because the Buckeyes lost to Wisconsin. Dang it! So, we went up and went straight to bed! :)

Cheers to Project 365!
