I may not have many new posts for a bit...

Because we are MOVING!! Our new place is a 3/2 townhouse that Michael's grandma owns! Our lease starts Jan. 1, so we will have a new place for the new year!! YAY! I am so excited. It's over 300 sq feet larger then our place now and is 2 stories. We also have an attic... which I am really excited about. I don't know why I am so excited about an attic... but oh well... I just am!! Here are some pics. These are not of our townhouse but it has a duplicate floorplan. The only difference is ours doesn't have wood floors and the cabinets in the kitchen are a little different.

Top Ten Things I am greatful for today

1. My wonderful husband - I am so lucky to have him in my life! I can be a difficult person and can be more then slightly strange, but he loves me in spite of it (he says that those are some of the reasons he loves me).

2. Church - I love my nursery kids and my co-nursery teachers! They are great!
We also had really good talks in sacrament today! I love church and look forward to it each Sunday!

3. Sunday Night Dinner at my parent's house - It is so much fun knowing our whole family can hang out and talk every week. It is great to stay connected with everyone and I love the awesome relationships we all have with each other! I LOVE MY FAMILY!!! And tonight Dad made some super Yummy Veggie Soup that really hit the spot! Thanks Dad!

4. My Christmas Tree - It makes me so happy every time I look at it! See last post for details -

5. Warm Jammies - I got some super comfy and warm jammies at Vanity Fair when I went to the outlet mall in Biloxi! I wish I had gotten more then 1 pair now!

6. Crock Pots - Amazing. A night shift staple. Otherwise we wouldn't ever eat. End of story.

7. The Book Of Mormon - Love it!

8. My job - It can be hard and it makes me really tired, but it's great.

9. Raelee Wonsch - I don't know what it is about this little angel, but she is awesome! So happy all the time. Such a joy! She has touched all of our hearts! There is nothing better then walking in to a room and having her see me and just break out into a huge smile! It much be because I am the best aunt ever and she knows I am and will continue spoiling her!

10. My bed - The greatest thing ever! In fact.... I'm going to go to bed now! Goodnight all!!

Yay for Christmas time!!

Ok so I am one of those people who HATE it when stores put out christmas decorations before thanksgiving.... But not this year!!!! I am so super excited about christmas it is crazy!! I started listening to Josh Groban's and Brad Paisley's christmas albums 2 weeks ago and went on a christmas shopping spree with my friend Jennifer this last weekend! And today Michael and I bought our tree. I really really wanted a real tree since it is our first married christmas, but I settled on a artificial one because my need to have the tree up now outweighed my want for a real one! So we took a quick little trip down to Target and found a BEAUTIFUL tree that was on sale!! We got home and I put on christmas music and we decorated it! I am in LOVE with this tree! So basically this rambling post can be summed up with "YAY FOR CHRISTMAS TIME!!!"

Our mini vacation

Michael and I decided to take a mini-vacation to have some much needed R&R. Nursing is a great career, but it really takes alot out of us! So I shopped around and we got a great deal on a hotel room for the weekend. We stayed at the Country Inn & Suites we had stayed at the night before we left for Wisconsin! (By the way... they are our favorite hotel chain EVER!!) When we checked in we discovered that we got the same room we were in before also!! Here are some pics!

Michael and I at the beach. It was soooo cold!

Michael at sunset

Michael playing putt putt. We played 36 holes. I kicked Michael's butt on the first 18 and then he totally slaughtered me on the last 18. Oh well... it felt good to win for a little bit!
(On a side note.... the place we played was where President Obama and his family played when they came to PC a few months ago. They had the balls and putters for sell for a rediculous amount! One ball was $400.)

The beautiful sunset at Destin that we almost missed.

We came home on 98 and Mexico Beach was soo pretty!

Halloween 2010

So me and Michael are boring and didn't do anything for halloween except for spending time with our families! We had tons of fun! Micahel's Grandpa was in town so after church we rushed over and spent some time with him. Then we went home for an hour or so, and then went to my parent's house to have dinner with the Tooth fairy and three people who she stole teeth from! Raelee was such a cute tooth fairy and she LOVED her costume!! She was all smiles and in the best mood!! It was a great dinner! After dinner we headed over to Michael's parents house to spend time with them.

All in all it was a pretty good day!

Ok I read this and it was awesome so I'm totally sharing.... (and the things are true... I checked!)


33 Miners were rescued on the 33rd week of the year; it took 33 days to drill down to them; they were brought to the surface on 10/13/10 which equals 33. They all say Jesus, who was crucified at age 33, was with them the entire time.

Isn't that cool?

Have a good day.

A Funny funny e-mail

This is an e-mail Michael forwarded to me. I loved it! Enjoy!

Maxine for congress!! Or Queen!!

Everyone concentrates on the problems we're having in this country lately: illegal immigration,BP oil spill, and alligators attacking people in Florida.

Not me. I concentrate on solutions for the problems. It's a Win-Win situation.

+Dig a moat the length of the Mexican border.

+ Send the dirt to New Orleans to raise the level of the levies.

+ Put the Florida Alligators in the moat along the Mexican border.

Any other problems you would like me to solve today? Yes!

Think about these:

1. Cows
2. The constitution
3. The Ten Commandments

Is it just me or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic our government could track a single cow, born in Canada almost 3 years ago, right to the stall where she slept in the state of Washington? And, they tracked her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal immigrants wandering around our country. Maybe we should give each of them a cow.

They keep talking about drafting a constitution for Iraq.... Why don't we just give them ours? It was written by alot of really smart guys, it has worked for over 200 years, and we're not using it anymore.

The real reason we can't have The Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse is this: You cannot post 'Thou Shalt not steal,' 'Thou Shalt Not commit adultry,' and 'Thou Shalt not Lie' in a building full of Lawyers, Judges, and politicians. It creates a hostile work environment.

The small things...

I love night shift, but sometimes when there is a rough night, it seems like 7am is just never going to come.... but then it never fails, something turns the night around. Tonight I was having to spend alot of time with a patient and the following conversation happened:

Patient: You are so wonderful.
Me: Awww, Thank you for saying that!
Patient: No really, I think I love you!
Me: Well... you'll have to fight my husband for me.
Patient: No... There would be no good in doing that.... I'm old!

I know it's a small thing, but for some reason it totally made my night!

Our trip to Milwaukee

Our Impala!!

BirdThe Happy Newlyweds!Beautiful Sky over the lake!Us at Lake MichiganThe Comforter we boughtMy new haircut! Our horrible super 8 room!Good room in WisconsinOur Awesome Room in Wisconsin!
Our First Room in Panama City On the 31st we flew out to Milwaukee for Marisa and Jordan's wedding! Marisa is our cousin, well Michael's cousin, but I'm claiming her for my own! The wedding wasn't until 9/3 but we decided to make a whole vacation out of it!
On the 30th we drove to Panama City Beach to stay the night so we wouldn't have to get up so early for our 9:13 flight in the morning. We stayed in the Country Inn & Suites! And it was Sweet!! We had an extra large Jacuzzi room! It was so nice! We loved it!
The next Morning we woke up at 6am, packed up, and drove to the airport. The new airport is soooo nice! And small! Which I loved because it was easy to get around! Our first plane was teeny tiny and we had a rough flight. We flew through some storms so it wasn't too fun. Luckily we were only flying to Atlanta. Our next plane was bigger and the flight was great! Until the landing.... it was a ROUGH landing, but we were in Milwaukee!!
We picked up our rental car and the lady at the desk gave us a discount because Michael's credit card is a Packers card. As we walked away Michael told me he always knew the card would come in handy! Our car was a 2011 Chevy Impala!! It was amazing!
Then we got to our hotel... this is where I totally utterly failed.... While using priceline to book our trip I stupidly chose a Super 8.... but it wasn't entirly my fault.... the pictures were completely misleading!! We got to our room and it was sooooo nasty! There was bottle caps on the floor and it smelled very musty and gross! So I called priceline and they said they couldn't do anything until we talked to the hotel. So we went to the front desk and told them how unhappy we were with the room. So they moved us to a bigger room. Michael convinced me to try it for a night. But I had my conditions. We went to target and bought a new comforter and pillows. Then I was willing to stay the night. That night I got up to use the bathroom (which was smaller then a portapotty.... and portapottys are cleaner I think) and a HUGE spider crawled across my foot! I woke Michael up and told him I would not be staying there again. In the morning we called Priceline back and we got a new hotel but we had to stay in that one for one more night since it was past check out time.
The next day we helped Marisa set up the reception hall and then we went to our new hotel... a Country Inn & Suites!! YAY!!!! We had another Jacuzzi room and it was GREAT!!! We went to the rehearsal and dinner which was good and yummy!
The next morning I got my hair cut.... I had 15 inches cut off!! :-( But Micheal loves it and it is cute!
Then it was wedding time!! It was a beautiful wedding and I got to meet tons of family! Marisa was so pretty!
The next day we went to the gift opening which was awesome! and then the next day we went to the zoo and then dinner with Busia. Busia is Michael's grandma. It was soo yummy! That night we went to Aunt Lisa's house and played apples to apples and spoons! Spoons was intense but so much fun!
We didn't go to sleep that night since we had to be at the airport by 4:45 the next morning for our 6:30 flight.
We flew from Milwaukee to Memphis, and then Memphis to Panama City. The flights were both really good.
Then we drove to Dothan to visit my grandma and my uncle, Brandy, her boys, and my new cousin! It was a great visit and then we drove home.
Well, that's about it!
