2nd Dateaversary

Two years ago on this day, Rob and I had our first date. I remember it being a casual thing, and would have never expected to be married to him, let alone be married for over 19 months, two years later.

I'm so thankful that Rob is my honey. Although we didn't go out and celebrate tonight, I'll always be able to look back at that night two years ago in Manassas Virginia that changed our lives.

I love you, Rob!

Plenty O' Randomness

It's been awhile since my last post, and a lot has been going on. I occasionally think to myself, "Oh! I should blog about that!" and then I forget, or decide I need to do homework, or work, or nuggle up on the couch with my husband instead, so I'm behind. Sorry!

So where to begin . . . I'll try and be chronological . . .

  • A couple of weeks ago in flower center we were working on "medium sized" arrangements in vases, and I designed a fun vase arrangement that I was very happy with.

    For the greens I used leather leaf, myrtle, and lily grass. The flowers used are yellow football mums, maroon daisy mums, and 'safari sunset' leucadendron. After this picture was taken I actually added another football mum, and leucadendron, but I forgot to take a picture of it too. :( I think most fun thing about this arrangement though, is the vase. I love how it's clear with the blue swirl going around it.

  • I started my job during the last week of October, and I absolutely love it. Let face it though, among other things, I'm getting paid to blog. It's awesome.

  • Midterm grades were available on Oct 29, and I'm doing pretty well, not as well as I'd like though:What can I say; Rob has turned me into a perfectionist. I'm really trying to get that Plant Science grade back up to an A, and keep the others where they are. I'd love to end a second semester with a 4.0. It's only showing me as being registered for 12 credits because I have another second block class that started three weeks ago.

  • I'm thinking of creating another blog to use as my portfolio, but haven't gotten that far yet. It would after all, make four blogs that I am responsible for.

  • Rob and I went to Logan last weekend to see a friend of ours, Eryn, preform in The Monkeys Paw. She did a great job, and played her part with such conviction. It was awesome. We also hung out with The Smith, and overall had an awesome weekend.

  • I'm sure everyone is aware, but Barack Obama was elected to be the 44th President of the United States of America, and I'm SO HAPPY about it!

  • I was called a jerk for "being a democrat" on Wednesday. About 30 seconds after the conversation began, I excused myself because the person I was talking to was ready for a fight, and I didn't want to go there. What can I say, I don't like confrontation! It was ridiculous.

  • I stayed up until midnight last night to register for classes, and will be taking on 15.5 credits next semester. Check out my schedule:
    Yeah, that's right, everything is super spread out, and Thursdays are going to be insane. I may only have 3 classes, but I'm going to be on campus for 13 hours. Granted there are seven open hours, but it's not like I'm going to walk home for an hour! Also, if I an get into the advanced floral design class--which I'm not technically supposed to take until after my internship--the baking class will get cut, and I'll probably pick up a swimming class on Fridays. That would make 16.5 credit hours. It's going to be a crazy semester.

  • Tomorrow Rob and I are heading to Sandy for the weekend. My lil' sister, Susie, and her family are in town for a couple of weeks, and since we haven't seen them in almost a year, I'm way excited to chill with her and her cute twin boys; they are going to be 18 months this month--I can't believe they are getting so big!

So there is the update. Kinda long, but it's been a couple of weeks. :)
