So you may remember that we love going to the movie theater.  Well, I take that back.  We live in a place where there's not much to do except watch movies or go out to eat.  We don't really go clubbing so that's off the list.  There are some arts and cultural activities but you have to go searching for them.  I usually find out about those things way after they've passed.  Anyway, we are regular movie goers mainly because there's not much else to do and we don't have TV at home.  We don't mind though.  I used to hate movie theaters because I used to think they smell awful (I know that's crazy, lol) but I think I'm desensitized to them now.

OK, I said all that to say that I watched another movie tonight.  This time I went with my friend to see Bridesmaids.  Yeah, I didn't even ask hubby to see this one with me because just by the title I know what the response would have been. Hehehe.  I wished I wouldn't have been so prejudiced by the title because I think he would have liked it too.

The movie was sooo hilarious.  It was like the female version of Hangover but twice as funny to me and without all that craziness at the end.  I was laughing so hard.  My friend is also married and we were able to look at each other and laugh at some of the stuff because we could relate.  I was also surprised by how emotional I was in the movie.  I mean, I'm a sensitive person and I'm usually the one crying in every almost every movie but tonight was a little worse.  I was tearing up pretty frequently (not sobbing though).  I'm a mess.  I can't imagine how I will be when I'm pregnant.  I'll probably glance at a flower and start crying (hopefully not).

Anyway, I'm glad I got to see it and I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

We are headed off to NC very early tomorrow morning so gotta go.  Have a good LOOOONNNNGGG weekend!

*We've been packing, packing, packing.  We both have so much stuff and we've decided to donate most of it.  *We've been eating out with our special friends and making plans to do so with others.  *We've been preparing for 2 graduations.  *Again, we met up with our renters and showed them the house (let them do a walk through).  And we're still happy that we are renting to them. *Off to North Carolina this weekend to see the house we'll be moving into.  We'll also move some of our stuff this weekend. *Lots to do and we are taking it one day at a time, although my OCD-ness is definitely coming out and I'm trying not to drive my husband too crazy. LOL.  *Our moving date is not until the last week of June but if it was up to me we'd be packed up already and living out of suitcases and boxes and sleeping up on the floor. LOL.  What can I say--I like to get it done.  But my husband is not having that :). *I'm glad I have someone to show me a different perspective talk some sense into me. Ha!

Have a good day!

Happy Belated Anniversary to us

Hubby and I have been married 3 years now.  Woohoo!  Our anniversary was on May 18.  We both had to work but we went out after work.  Usually we don't have lunch together although we work at the same place but we were blessed to both have a few hours together to have lunch.   After work we went to eat at a new restaurant in the area (called Table 100).  The food was good and we had such a great time. 

I cannot believe 3 years have gone by already. Wow.  We've been together wayyyyy longer than 3 years but our relationship still feels new and vibrant.  I feel like we have the securities of an established relationship but all the excitement of a new one.  I feel very blessed and we both are thankful for each other.

Us on our wedding day.  I guess this is the first wedding pic I've posted, huh?
 I hope you ladies are having a wonderful weekend :)

A glimpse of how I would look pregnant

Hubby and I went to a wedding this past weekend in New Orleans.  It was a lot of fun: laughing, dancing and good eating.  The bride and groom looked dapper.  Hubby was looking mighty scrumptious too :). 

I liked the dress I wore but it didn't translate well in the pictures.  In almost every picture I looked pregnant and I'm not. least, I think I'm not.  Just kidding.  I know I'm not pregnant.

What do you think, about 4-5 months?  Kidding.  I'll compare this picture some day to an actual preggo photo. LOL
Well, it may have been the dress or the fact that I ate a crap ton of food.  Maybe both.  Regardless, at least I have an idea of how I would look if I were pregnant.

This is a little better :)
I love weddings :)

We're officially landlords

Well not yet since we are not moving for another month.  But we found a family to rent our home.  We are so excited.  I mean it sucks that we have to rent because the market isn't too good and we are not trying to sell because we are upside down on our mortgage.  But things could be worse.  

We rented our house without having to negotiate or go down on the rental price.  I think that the whole thing was a blessing.  The family that we are renting to seem really cool and most importantly clean and responsible.  The dad seems like a handy man so they probably wont freak out at the drop of a hat.  Anyway, the "cherry on top" about the whole deal is that they are also potential buyers.  They plan to permanently relocate to the area so they are possibly looking to buy it in a few years (at least that's what they say).  Yippee!!!

I must admit that although this is all good, there is still some minor anxiety about renting.  You never really know what you're getting into unless you're into it or beyond it.  You know what I mean.  Well, regardless, I'm staying positive and having faith that things will work out.

Things I don't particularly care for but I have to live with

Hey all, hope you had a great weekend.  We've been busy for the past few days.  Well, it feels like we are busy all the time so I guess that's the story of our lives. LOL.  Who isn't busy nowadays?  Anyway, I just wanted to share a few things and maybe whine a bit.

I will start out with some things I don't particularly care for:

1) My husband getting a speeding ticket while trying to rush me home so that I could use the bathroom.  It's so sad that it's funny.  We ate Thai food and I usually have an "iron stomach" but that night was different.  Actually, I think I just ate too much.  My husband was driving 16 miles above the speed limit when we got stopped.  Needless to say that telling the truth didn't help.  I'm still grumbling $200 later.  My sweet hubby was very understanding and just paid the ticket.  He wasn't mad at all but I was (at myself and the cop)! Grrr...

2) Not having a work out plan that kicks my butt.  I was doing P90x for a while.  I came up with my own schedule that was supposed to give me a harder workout without being too hard on the knees.  It was tough for me to stick to that schedule.  I didn't feel like I was getting a good workout so on some days I didn't even bother doing it.  After trying this for a few weeks, I've decided to go back to Insanity.  My new workout started today and I'm liking it so far.  This is Round 2 of Insanity for me.

3) Leaving unfinished work.  This is in general.  Anyone who knows me, know that I'm obsessive about my work and almost everything I do.  I hate leaving things unfinished.  With that being said, I started a challenge a few days ago to read the Bible in 90 days and I've failed.  I'm too far behind to even catch up.  I did good for about week but I've been playing catch up for a while now.  I'm not giving up on completing the assignment, I've just set more realistic goals for myself.  I still want to will complete the task.

4) Worrying about moving (a little).  So, I'm thankful we found a house to rent but I'm worrying some about finding someone to rent our home.  The time is winding down and we haven't had any serious offers yet.  Also, I usually don't mind moving but sometimes all this packing and organizing is a pain.  I'm more looking forward to unpacking and re-decorating our new place.

5) Relying on others.  This is not always true.  Let me explain.  For my new job in NC I need two references.  I asked for those 2 references close to 1 month ago but they have not been done as yet.  This is frustrating since I've been sending my 2 references reminders and even offered them a stamp and envelope which they declined.  My application has to be complete by late June and these 2 important documents still aren't in.  I had to ditch my two original references and find 2 more  who completed it right away.  Note to myself: don't do this to others in the future, be reliable!

6) Whining, so I'll stop :)

On a better note:

1) This past weekend we were in Florida again.  We borrowed our brother-in-law's moving trailer so we can start loading it up to move in about a month and a half.  We got to spend time with my in-laws who are awesome.  Hubby's mom cooked some delicious foods as usual and we got to hang out some with his little nieces and nephew.  They are so cute.

2) I have 100 followers.  Thanks to Mrs. H.  I'd like to thank all of you too for following and leaving comments.  I appreciate it!

Ciao!  Hopefully the next post will be more exciting and uplifting. Ha!

Housing ad blooper

Hubby and I are trying to sell/rent our house since we are  moving in less than 2 months.  He did a great job making the flyers with all the details and pretty pix.  I hung some of the flyers around the hospital and he posted them at some other locations too (I think).  Well, anyway I got home today and was eating left overs at our dinner table while reading one of the flyers.  I was admiring all the details he managed to put on there and how great the layout was.  I then noticed that there was no contact information on them.  Yeah, so we hung all those pretty flyers and there's no number or email address on there for them to contact us. LOL.  So hilarious.  

That could explain why we haven't gotten any calls or emails. Hehehe.

I'm usually the ditsy one (who gets made fun of--lol) so I wont let him live this one down for a while.

Just an update on STUFF in no particular order:
* Watched African Cats: very cute but got a little boring towards the end.  I was tired and it was at the end of the day so that might have been the reason I was falling asleep at the end.  Hubby is all about animals and wild life so it was a must see for us.

* Watched Fast Five: not a movie I was particularly interested in so I was very surprised that I enjoyed it.  It was a fast pace, adrenaline rush throughout.  You know the type where everyone in the movie theater is getting into it.

* Watched Hanna: I really liked this movie but hubby didn't like it as much as I did.  I just like seeing girls kick butt.  It reminded of the movie Salt.  Ok, I know we watched a lot of movies but I guess that's what happens when you don't watch TV. Ha!

* Last week tornado alarms were going off  again (even during the daytime).  They usually go off at night, at least that's what I've noticed while living here.  Also, one night we were awoken from sleep by very loud wind.  It was crazy but I'm glad that's over and I hope we wont have too much of that anytime soon.

* Less than 2 months before we move...yay!  I did some minor packing this weekend.  I got rid of a bunch of clothes and shoes--trying to decide if I should donate or have a garage sale.  If I donate to Goodwill or Salvation Army, they sell it anyway.  I dunno, we'll see.  Any ideas?

* Working out (some with P90X, other times running) but not as often as I would like.  In my mind I want to do it about 5 times per week but I've been slacking some (maybe about 2-3 times per week).  Hubby went running with me one day last week.  This was huge because he hates running, so I really appreciated it (hopefully he's reading this and will come running with me more often--hehe!).  Anyway, I went with him to the gym one day last week also which was monumental for me as I'm going through a phase where I hate going to the gym and would rather workout at home.

* Had dinner with a sweet couple tonight.  We had sushi and hibachi and it was really good.  We spent a lot of the time making fun of our waitress for having such a bad attitude.  The good food made up for it though and we didn't let her ruin our dinner.  That same couple had me over the previous night for barbecue and some other yummy food.

* A close family member got engaged this weekend.  The wedding is coming soon and I'm so excited.  You know I love weddings!

Anyway, that's my little update.  I gotta go get ready for tomorrow.  What's happening with you?
