My New Furniture!

I had such a great weekend! Friday, I was home sick with a UTI and I'm feeling much better today. Those things are usually rough for me when I have them so I went straight to the hospital on Thursday night when I felt the pain coming on. Anyway, my furniture got her Friday morning bright and early and my washer and dryer followed in the afternoon. My new stuff looks great! It's starting to feel like a real apartment now that I don't have an air matress and lawn charis in my living room! hehe....here are some pictures of my new stuff.







Saturday was my company picnic. It was alot of fun. David and I went and met up with Michael and Alicia. We hung out for a couple of hours then headed back home. We wanted to check out the beach but it was too windy and sand was blowing everywhere. That evening David and I went to Carrabba's for dinner (I was craving Lobster Ravioli..hehe) then we met up with Alicia and Michael at the movie's and saw The Haunting in Connecticut. Oh...my...goodness. WOW...I don't usually see scary movies, but I went anyway. It was pretty scary, I have to admit and apparently it's based on a true story...hmmm....??
Sunday it rained during the morning time so David and I watched Fireproof. What a GREAT movie. I cried so many times. I recommend everyone to see that movie, especially anyone who is married. It has such a good meaning about marriage.

Oh and get this....we watched TWILIGHT on Friday night and guess who LOVED IT? David did....lol...DAVID liked it. He told me not to tell everyone on my blog but I had to because he swore up and down he wouldn't like it. So in exchange for me seeing that scary movie, he's going to read the first book in the series. I will keep you updated with how that goes!
I can't wait for this weekend. My little sister and her BFF are coming in Saturday and staying with me for their Spring Break until next Thursday, then the three of us are driving back to Charleston for Easter! I can't wait! :)
Well I'm going to head to bed soon. I am sleepy today. I hope everyone had a great Monday! :)

Ugh...

I feel like I'm falling apart....I'm wearing a boot for my ankle (for the next 6 weeks)...my knee hurts because of the way I have to walk with this boot on (I start physical therapy on this soon)....I have a UTI that caused me to go to the ER last night. So I'm home today....relaxing and dealing with my sicknesses! lol....I'm too young to have all these issues.

On the brighter side, my furniture was delivered this morning and it looks fantastic! I will post pictures soon. My washer and dryer will be here this afternoon. I can't wait to wash clothes...it's been a while.....haha

Happy Friday everyone :)

Surprise Revealed!

Well my surprise ended up not being as big of a surprise as we had all hoped but it was still awesome! I went home last weekend for my best friend, Crystal's bridal shower! It was a surprise shower and my arrival was a surprise as well! Somehow.....lol...Crystal found out before hand! Needless to say....it was such a beautiful shower and my bestie was so happy and excited! :) She is so in love and I am so happy for her and her soon to be hubbie, Rob!

The Future Mrs. Ross!

Bridesmaids, Maid of Honor, Bride and Flower Girl!

Beautiful Bride to Be!

Bride to Be Bestie and Me!

I had such a great trip this weekend. It was nice to see my family and friends. Latte and me set out around 9am on Friday after breakfast with David, drove for 8 hours before we finally made it to Charleston. There were alot of people on the road traveling North, most of them Canadians. Friday I hung out with my family and Saturday we all went to Amanda's horseback riding lesson then out to eat at Chili's! :) Yummy! Afterwards, I met up with Jewel and her and my momma went shopping for a bit before Crystal's bridal shower. Sunday, I spent some more time with my family before I hit the road around noon, this time only taking me about 7.5 hours. I flew home...lots of speeding. Driving that far by yourself is not easy and it's hard on the brain. I have had a huge migraine all day today and I think its from driving over 900 miles in 2 days. Oh well, it was worth it and I'm doing it again in May for my other best friend's graduation!

My poor Latte is teething. She has lost 4 teeth in the past week and a half and she constantly paws at her jaw and whines because it hurts her :( I bought her three tours at Publix today because I felt bad for her and the Vet said that there wasn't much that I could do for her pain. Today was the very first time that I left her alone in the kitchen, with a baby gate blocking the doorway and she did great! No messes and she didn't tear anything up! She is such a good puppy!

Tomorrow I am cooking a pot roast with potatoes and carrots. I hope it turns out. I am cooking it in the crockpot that I cooked my corned beef in last week.

Oh! I got my living room set about 2 hours ago! It ended up being something totally different than the two that I picked out. I got a good deal on it and the sale actually ended today! It's suppose to be here Friday, just in time for my parents! I got alot of cleaning to do before my family gets here this weekend! I can't wait for them to see my place! YAY! My set includes a sofa, love seat, coffee table and two end tables. Very cute. I will post pics once it's all set up!

Also, PLEASE say a HUGE prayer for MckMama and her family. Baby Stellan is in the hospital and doctor's are saying that it's SVT, the same condition he was diagnosed with in the womb. Please pray that God will take care of this baby boy and give his parents the strength they need during this hard time.

Meet my new friend!

What a crazy and hectic day at work this has been. I am starting to get stressed out and overwhelmed. I have to remember to keep my head on straight so that I don't get too stressed out or bogged down with things to do. Luckily, today was my Friday at work....since I am going somewhere special tomorrow (it's still a secret) I took the day off! :) Woohoo!!!!

I have a new friend at work and she is awesome! I mentioned her a few posts ago when I wished her and her new husband a Happy Wedding Day! Her name is Alicia and she has a super cute blog! She's new to the blogging world and would love to make some new friends. I was bragging about all of my good friends that I've made on here over the past few months and she's excited to become an obsessive blogger like myself! So, if you don't mind, head on over to her blog and give her some blog lovin'!!!!

I probably won't get to post this weekend so I hope that everyone has a fantastic weekend!!!!!!

Super Sunday!

Today was such a beautiful day! Little Miss Latte let me sleep in until 9:30 which was really nice. I never sleep in that late. Usually she has me up around 7:00 in the morning because she's so use to getting up early during the week. I came out of the bathroom after my shower and heard her crunching on something so I ran over and held her down while I pried (spelling?) her mouth open to see what she had. What do you know...it was a tooth! Down to the root and everything! I am hoping it was a baby tooth, but I am not sure. Anyway, I am going to keep it and maybe put it under my pillow tonight to see what the tooth fairy will bring me ;)

It was about 84 outside today and breezy so I decided that I was going to go to the beach! It was my first trip to the beach since I moved here and it was beautiful! I stayed for about two hours and studied for the GMAT while I was there. I didn't want to leave but I had to get home to do laundry and meet the cable guy. I did some rearranging of what furniture I do have and I messed my cable up. I had the guy come all the way out here only for him to push a button on the box.....??? I totally could have done that myself right? Why didn't he just tell me to do that on the phone?

After I met up with him I rode over for Ashley Furniture store to look at couches. I am getting a refund check this year and I desperately need living room furniture. These are the two that I picked out...which one do you guys like better? They're both the same exact price and they're made out of Microfiber! My parents are coming to visit me the weekend of the 27th and they're going to bring the truck so that they can pick the couch up from the warehouse for me! :)



My work is having a family picnic the weekend my parents are coming in! I am so excited that they are coming to visit me! I hope they get to come alot more now that my dad's business has picked back up. The weekend after that my sister and her best friend Danielle are coming down to spend their spring break with me! And on the 10th, the three of us plus Latte are driving back to Charleston and I will spend the rest of the weekend there, coming back to St. Pete on Sunday. I cant wait! We may get to go to see family in GA for Easter. I sure hope we decide to go, because I havent' seen them since Christmas.

Tuesday I am cooking a St. Patty's Day dinner of Corned Beef and Cabbage and Potatoes for David on Tuesday! Wish me luck! I've never done it before. I'm excited to see how it turns out!

Speaking of cooking, I bought a practically brand new crock pot at a Garage Sale today! :) I was so excited! I was heading out to the beach and saw a Garage sale at the front of my complex, glanced and saw she had a crock pot, so I stopped and got it for $10! What a deal! Those things are like $60 at Wal-Mart! I am going to cook my St. Patty's Day dinner in there!

Oh and the other highlight of my day was seeing the space shuttle, Discovery take off this evening! Talk about cool! I was jogging and had no idea it was taking off today and I turned around and saw it! It was amazing! I could see the actually shuttle, it was a bright dot, and you could tell when it hit the atmosphere because you saw it break apart from whatever it is that breaks apart when it hits the atmosphere. LOL...ok so I am no science dork but you get the idea! I had no idea that we could see that all the way over here in St. Pete! Keep in mind that I am on the west coast and the shuttle took off on the east coast of Florida!

Well I am done for the night...I hope everyone had a great weekend! :)

Secret about this coming weekend is coming soon!

My Date

I am so absolutely CRAZY in love with this guy!

David and I have a great date last night. We went to Carrabba's and sat outside on the patio while the sun was setting. It was such a beautiful day here yesterday, much like today, and everyday these past two weeks! Its so much like paradise here. I love it! We had wine with our Lobster Ravioli (def. should try it if you like seafood...it was sooo yummy!) and had yummy dessert! Afterwards we were going to see a movie but when we got there we didn't see anything that interested us so we drove around with the windows down, drinking Starbucks and listening to the radio for about an hour, just enjoying each other. Last night was simply wonderful :) I love him so much. He really is my everything.

A Spoiled Rotten.......

So this past weekend I found the coolest little doggie store in the mall. They had gourmet dog cookies in a glass case just like a bakery! I was so excited and Latte loved her treats :)
This week has been so crazy at work! I finally starting to get into the program and things are coming very quickly now. I'm not complaining, I love my job, but it's challenging and I can say that I learn something new every single day. I really could say that I learn something new every hour....which is true! I have a really good feeling about working for GD and I do believe that I want to make this my career. I think I have a potential of going very far with this company. Who knows where it'll take me. I got my 45 day evaluation yesterday and on 2 of 5 things I met my boss's expectations and on the other 3 things I exceeded her expectations. And today I was complimented for having great negotiation skills! Alright! Not a bad way to start off my first two months! I am still thrilled that tomorrow is Friday!! lol
David and I are going on a date tomorow. We are having dinner at Carrabba's (our restaurant sicne we started dating almost 4 years ago) and then we're going to the movies. Any recommendations for a movie? It has been a long time since I've gone to see a movie. I don't even know what's playing right now.
Well I am going somewhere next weekend but I don't want to say where on here because it's a secret! I will reveal the secret later next week! :) I hope everyone is having a GREAT week.
T-G-I-F tomorrow! Yahoooooooooooo!!!
HAPPY 5 MONTH BIRTHDAY TODAY LATTE!! MOMMY LOVES YOU!! :)

*grin*

LOL!!! Look at that face!
Ok so...I had THE BEST weekend with David and Latte! Friday night, David surprised me with a bottle of Blush Wine and a nice dinner at a Greek restaurant. On Saturday morning we slept in and I got up and made breakfast...it wasn't that great, but it was still nice. David appreciated it! :) He made me a cup of coffee and after it had set on the counter for a while, the creamer formed a heart...kind of ironic huh?? I was so amazed at that so I took a picture of it! :) Would it be ok to take that as a sign from God??
After breakfast, we drove to Plant City and went to the Strawberry Festival! It was a gorgeous day...high of 84 and a nice breeze, blue sky and sunshine. Perfect Sunshine State day. We spent the entire time walking around eating food and got to see a professional pig race! LOL! We put away about $50 worth of food and had everything from Corn, Root Bear Floats, Chocolate Covered Bananas and Strawberries, Fries and Vinegar and Polish Sausage, and a fair hot dog. YUMMY! :) I think I gained 5 pounds....just kidding.
After the festival we drove back to St. Petersburg and had a nice dinner. Take out Chinese dinner with wine! :) It was romantic! hehe....
Sunday, I made breakfast again and it was much better! I got some homemade strawberry jelly at the Festival and it was so yummy on our toast! :) We spent the day laying around, running errands and doing chores and I made a very yummy dinner!
We had such a nice romantic weekend together. Things are back on track for us and I couldn't be happier or more in love. God has big plans for David and I. I truely love him with everything that I have. I am so lucky to have such a great person in my life and I thank God everyday for bringing David into my life. I love you baby!
