Birthday Blues and good news!

Well today is my 23rd birthday, and yet as many people say as you get older "It's just another day." If you know me at all- you know that usually I start celebrating at the beginning of the month and have at least 2 or 3 gatherings with friends and family to assure they remember! lol

This year is different. I know it is due to being married and having a full time job, but it just pretty much stinks!
I have just felt kinda down all day, thinking that I have no friends (bc I really only have 1 that I talk to regularly) and realizing that I probably won't have a party/ get-together until I'm 30! lol

But that's ok.....

I have also been REALLY emotional. And before any questions start being asked-no I'm not prego! =)
But every time somebody in my family has called or text me (that's all that's called-going back to the no friends comment earlier), I have gotten tears in my eyes and just wanted to cry! Same even when reading the comments on my fb page! What is wrong with me, people!?!? I'm supposed to be out and about, looking all cute, reminding people that it's my birthday. However, I worked for a few hours this morning, came home, took a nap and still sitting here all by myself. I guess I'm just having a pity party but that's ok, right? At least it's a party-- ha ha ha

Don't get me wrong, I'm really excited about Thehubs and I going out tonight! I have a $25 gift card for Olive Garden that a client gave me for my bday and it is also valid at Longhorn. So we are going there, and hopefully getting out of there without having to pay too much! I also have 2 movie tickets to the Rave that I got from work. We get tokens for our paperwork timeliness and other things like that and I cashed in some of them for the tickets! We will be seeing "The Last Song" choice for once! YAY!

Can you say FREE NIGHT OUT?!?!

So yes, that excites me! And Thehubs will be taking me shopping at some point this weekend, as well as getting me an ice cream cake from ColdStone!!!!!!! =) He always takes me on a "shopping spree" for my birthday. He is so good and patient about picking out cute things for me to wear and helping me make those very important decisions between shoes, tops, and jeans!

But just had to blog about my birthday blues....I know I'll get over it, and I really don't want anybody to feel sorry for me, so don't. I know it's just part of getting older, and I praise God for allowing me to get older! lol

Oh and good news---- we should be out of the craziness of our current living situation by next Thursday! The move-in date did get moved back a few days, but I don't care! I'm so ready to get out of here, and would rather them get EVERYTHING right with the apartments than us move in a half-done job! Our new place with have 3 pools, 3 tennis courts, a lake/pond to fish on, a walking trail, and a fitness center!
Plans to begin working out again have already been made, and anytime you want to come visit and lay out by the pool with me, just come on over! =)

Happy Friday...beautiful day!!!

Slight change of plans

Well this weekend was a bit crazy! Long story short, we (Mom, my cousin, his wife, and I) moved half our stuff to the apartment Saturday, Thehubs and I later decided Sat night that we didn't want to live there for a number of reasons (safety, conditions of the apt, etc.) and then we (Thehubs, mom and dad) moved it all back to our townhouse on Sunday! (fun fun)

So I'm sitting here now in my living room looking at stacks of boxes upon boxes, waiting to hear back from another apartment complex (which is absolutely amazing) and hoping we can get moved within the next week or so...

I know it was all God's plan. We both made mistakes, and learned from them...and trust me, it will never ever be forgotten! We were able to get out of the lease at the other place with no problems, and so I know that was The Lord's provision right there!!! And we would have never considered this other place unless the circumstances were what they are....once again, God's provision!

I will certainly keep you updated on everything......especially my sanity with the way my house looks right now. I thought about posting pics of it all, but let's just say that we look like hoarders at the moment!!!

Happy Wednesday!!

I'm sitting in my house right now looking at boxes...everywhere! Thankfully my mother-in-law came this morning and helped me ALL DAY packing. We've got pretty much everything packed except all the breakables in the kitchen. My mom will be coming in the morning with a bunch of newspapers to help finish things up.

I'm going to miss this looks very naked right now without everything on the walls, and everything packed. This was our first house. Our first place making memories as a married couple. First place we had friends over, and grilled out. First place we spent so many nights together in each other's arms. It was our first HOME!

Can't wait to see where the Lord leads us over the years. Where else we will make memories. Where we will begin adding to our family. When we will buy a house. Where we will settle down...etc. etc.

I know HE has great plans, and that He is leading our every step. I thank Him everyday for giving me such an amazing husband....I work with so many families who are falling apart. Dads and husbands who are apathetic and who just don't care about their own family. Husbands who don't communicate to their wives, and dads who don't know how to do anything but scream at their kids.

Those things make me stop and realize how blessed I am. They make me so thankful that my husband is right the opposite. He shows me his love daily, and I never have any doubts about that. I know he will be a great father one day, and will never put anything on this earth before us.

Just some thoughts.....
