Blanchette's Visit!

It's been pretty quiet on here since we got our very first visitor.....Adam Blanchette!! We finally got to enjoy his long-awaited visit. I have many pictures to get off my camera and ON to this blog, so stay tuned. This week dealt us so much fun. Miami...and from there we had a whirlwind week to spend laughing, catching up, shopping (yes!) and celebrating Adam's birthday! It was a perfect little trip... We are already looking forward to your next visit Blanchette :)

One Happy Doggy!

A couple of weeks ago, Shadow got spayed. She is doing wonderful!! She got her stitches taken out and her tummy is all good now. She's been going to doggy daycare a few days a week along with going to the dog park, dog beach and for walks. Shadow girl is a pretty spoiled pup and we love her :)

Somebody's Birthday...

Last weekend, we got together with a few other friends to celebrate in Miami. May 23rd was Adam's birthday!!! We had a pretty nice, amusing time...

My real reason for posting is simply to say that I love my husband so much, and have been having the best time celebrating him last weekend, he deserves it and so much more. I gotta say, this whole marriage thing, it's pretty awesome! We are coming up on 10 months, and I can't believe how quickly the time has flown by. How much fun is my life, to begin and end my days with my favorite person in the world, to constantly laugh my head off with the person who knows me better than anyone, and to walk through all of life's peaks and valleys with a man who is patient, comforting, soooo funny, selfless and genuine beyond words?!!
Ok, getting mushy (sirens blaring, whooooop, whooooop!), so I shall draw this to a close. I just want to tell the world that every single day I feel like the luckiest woman in the world, and can't imagine my life without my amazing husband. HAPPY BIRTHDAY babe!!! Love you tons xox

Today's birthday!

Jim & June

Today is Mr. Bales 64th birthday!!! They are such a blessing to everyone who knows them, and I feel lucky to have made such dear friends :) Mr. Bales was a teacher at Pioneer in Ann Arbor, Michigan (Adam's High School). They became good friends! Thank you for making us feel like one of the bunch from the very beginning. We enjoy the times we get to hang out and more to come! HAPPPPPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Rain Rain Rain

This is just what the doctor ordered! Steady rain has fallen since Sunday. This will be soooo good for our lawn & trees. Along with the rain came some strong winds and a tornado watch. The rain is expected to continue over most of the area for the next few days, diminishing as Memorial Day weekend approaches. Miami here we come!!

Florida in May!

This place is 10 minutes from our house. We hung out on this great beach in New Smyrna yesterday, even got to do some tide-pooling. Could it be any more beautiful here?!
~Our friends Sarah & Derek had their baby, and it was a sweet little girl!! Reese Deborah-lynn Mackenzie was born on May 1st, and is as perfect as can be. We are so happy and excited for you guys and we can't wait to meet Reese!
~I have two belated birthdays!!! Happy birthday to my aunt Anne-Louise. Hope you had a wonderful day and are enjoying your new home. Looking forward to seeing pictures! Also, happy birthday to my uncle Jules. We miss you guys lots and lots and can't wait for our next visit!! Love you guys xox
~Lots of exciting things lately. I'll admit, though, that my ability to relax and enjoy them has been inhibited by our eagerness to get our house ready!!! A little nutty-mcnutty. I will post pictures of our house very soon! Hang in there :) Today, we will attempt to get the rest of our curtains. And I'll be the one cartwheeling as it will be so wonderful to just have this project done!

Happy birthday princess!!!

In pink, of course, lol.
Happy birthday to my girlfriend Tracey!! I met Tracey years and years ago. She is someone I've always counted on, and known that she'll be there for me. No matter the miles. No matter the time that passes. We get on the phone, and it's like we saw each other yesterday. I'm so thankful for the way we can just pick right back up. That when we see each other on visits, it feels like I never moved away. It's a gift, that connectedness! Well, I could go on and on, like I said. And it will never feel like I did it justice! But here's the take-away: Tracey is an amazing, amazing friend that I'm so thankful for. I love that our bond just keeps getting deeper. Distance schmistance! And I miss her especially today!!!! I hate to miss out on these celebrations! I'm so thankful that you've been in my life these past ten++ years! LOVE YOU T!!!

Spay Day!

Today, we brought Shadow to the Animal Clinic to get spayed. This process, to spay our GSD, will increase her lifespan and keep her healthy. Good luck Shadow girl!!

Mission STS-125

We went to the Space Shuttle Atlantis launched on Monday at 2:01pm sharp. It was awesome!!! We parked on a bridge to make sure nothing would get in the way of seeing the shuttle take off. Space shuttle Atlantis thundered through slightly hazy Florida skies carrying 7 astronauts to repair the damaged Hubble space telescope. Wow, what a sight. We felt the strong after winds of the shuttle ~ pretty cool!!

We've been soooo busy getting settled in our new home but it's been fun. Today, we will organize our closet and head to the dog beach!

This is my 1st post this month. Wow, it's been wayyyy to long since the last one. I can tell you that we are doing wonderful down here in Florida!! Sorry, I have no pictures for you tonight but soon. Adam and I have a challenge going on; Who will decorate the nicest guest bedroom LOL. Gotta have fun in life! I'm not gonna lie, I think he might win. He has such great ideas.

So, when we first walked into our home, one week ago yesterday (holy), we had forgotten just how much we loved it here! The community, our street, the details in our house and how big it actually was. Adam kept pointing and saying; "look, we have this.....and that....." haha! All I can say before I hit the sack is HOME SWEET HOME!!!
