Justin case you were wonderin...

My sweetie is wonderful! Okay I know the title is cheesy but how can you pass up that pun? :) Work has been crazy so I haven't posted in a while but I thought I'd take a moment to brag about my love! Justin is just a sweet guy by nature but he can have his "caveman" tendencies too. The other day though he was just the sweetest thing ever!

I was having a crappy Monday at work and he was home because he was starting a new job on Tuesday (he loves it). I'm used to coming home and waiting for him to come home while I cook dinner and sometimes it's almost 8 by the time we eat together (not with the new job!!!). Well on Monday I was so excited because when I walked to my room to get changed he was already there! Then he told me that the comforter was messed up and I should fix it. Being lazy I said I'd do it later. He pushed the issue so I picked it off the floor and under it was a stainless steel crock pot! Now I know that's not a glamorous present but we're trying to move soon and I am obsessed with all things kitchenware. He is not. So this was such a sweet and out of character gift. I then discovered one of the seasons of a show I watch on dvd under my pillow and some silverware that I've been wanting and wouldn't pay the money for under my bed! I couldn't believe he went shopping on his own and bought me kitchen stuff! He has always been great with cards and flowers and all of that lovely stuff but this one just melted my heart. And can I just say how proud he was of himself to think to hide the presents? :)

I know this story was about something sweet that involved material things, but he truly is wonderful with so so many things. Most importantly, I have never had a moment with him where I haven't felt 100% loved and like a super model. You can't beat that! It's a very refreshing change too because I have kissed A LOT of frogs! Right Jess? ;) So go home a kiss your honeys everyone!

A little of this, a little of that

I know I haven't updated in a while, these past couple weeks have been crazy! My sweet little Mama is doing fine, her second surgery went smoothly and she's now in a real cast, which is substantially better than the boot.

My new job is going well, I finally am starting to feel like a "regular" and my tasks are coming naturally to me. They're sending me on my first grown up business trip in December to work at one of our conferences which happens to be in.. Vegas baby! We're staying at the Mandalay Bay which is super nice. I'm really looking forward to meeting the clients, jewelry shopping at the expo (hello! hand-made silver and turquoise native american jewelry?) and perhaps going to see the National Finals Rodeo. Yeehaw!

I'm starting to look for condos to rent and I have already informed Justin that he will be spending labor day weekend going furniture shopping with me. Poor guy. :)

I had a sweet little Hannah moment today as I was getting my hair cut. Whenever Jess would cut her hair (in her cute little pixie-esque way) Hannah would say "I got a shortcut!" and that is just what I thought when turning to face the mirror. The funny thing is that that saying is the first thing I always think of when I get a "shortcut" but it just held such a bitter sweet resonance today.

That's all for now, hope everyone is doing well!

Well, my sweet little Mama is home safe, and she has an appointment with a very good orthopedic surgeon on Monday. We'll find out more then about whether further surgery is needed. For now she has just been resting and taking it easy. Daddy has been home from work and taking care of her, such a good guy. I washed her hair for her tonight since she can't get her leg wet in the shower and then we watched part of the 6 hours of television I had taped for her. She's in good spirits and not terrible amounts of pain. Plus, I love the quality time.

The job is going well. I've caught on to all my tasks and can breeze through almost any situation I come across. So far, so good.

This weekend, my friend Jessy and I are going to PA to see Nikki for a little girls' weekend. Can't wait!

Jess- I will look in my old school stuff for that article, but I don't remember it at all! Haha I guess I wasn't the star student you are. Any idea which class? Also, I think I still have access to JSTOR and the other journals so I'll run a search there too. You can always try the LOC website too, they've gotten great about digitizing their sources.
