New Year

So its 2010. I get married this year! 🙂 I know this year will be full of changes. I will get married, we will move, I may start up a small business this summer, and I’m sure many more “firsts”. I am excited for all this year has in store.

We spent NYE at the movies seeing Avatar, then came home for a great House marathon. Tyler took three days off to spend with me (a sort of quality time Christmas present) and its been fabulous. We have just watched tv together, cooked some meals together, and laughed alot. I sure do love that man.

Tomorrow is the Liberty Bowl. Go Hogs go! Hope they win! Woo Pig Sooie!


The Best Way to Spread Christmas Cheer….

Well after we spent alllllllll day doing housework in my tiny one bedroom apartment (what ever will we do in a bigger house??), we sat down to watch Elf. Its my second favorite Christmas movie (second to White Christmas…but Tyler semi-refuses to watch White Christmas b/c the cover makes it look old and boring). As we were watching Elf, I got the HUGE urge to go look at Christmas lights. So we went to the Lights of the Ozarks on the Square. They were great! I’m such in a Christmas mood now! Only one day until I head home for break!


Change of Plans…but in a good way!

Well yesterday I was in Fort Smith at Tyler’s shop (which looks amazing these days….take a look!) and he was preparing to go race dirt bikes today in the middle of nowhere. But….a friend called and said the track was washed out and dangerous and hard, so he decided he wasn’t going anymore.

So….he came back to Fayetteville with me! 🙂 We saw Blind Side last night. The best movie! I hope I would be that type of woman to stand up for someone who needed love and help.

We came back here and had some quality time, and now we are about to go get some breakfast and clean the apartment. I am so thankful for a gentle, sweet fiance who helps with the housework! He is going to do the dishes and dust while I do laundry and pick up.

On another note…three months from today, I will get a new last name! Yup….in three short months I will be married! 🙂 Also exciting! Have a wonderful Sunday!


Mixed Ramblings

There is so much going on, and so much on my mind, sleep doesn’t seem good anymore. Just tossing and turning all night (hey! thats an old 50s song!). I will get to sleep over Christmas break…which is so close now.

We have our first marital counseling session Friday- I’m really excited. Tyler’s pastor, Bro. Ronnie, who is marrying us, is so nice and full of wisdom. He is a great communicator of the word of God. And I feel like he really values and understands communication- so I like him even more!

This weekend is my shower at OBU. I can’t wait to see my friends and spend some time with them. Its weird not being with them all the time, and to think that season of my life where I had close friends within an arms reach 24/7 is over. I miss those girls. I hope people come to my shower. Its kind of like being a kid and wondering if people will show up to your birthday party.

Well, I must get ready for my loooooong Wednesday. Teaching, office hours, quant homework, class, teaching, 3 hour class, going to see Tyler (weather permitting).

At least we will FINALLY be turning in our huge quant paper today. What a burden to turn it in….praying for an A!
