In just one month.....

In just one month...many great things are occuring! I just have to think of how fast a month goes, and this makes me grin ear-to-ear!

In exactly one month today:.....
  • Our family will be here!
    • Holy buckets, do I ever miss family! - And I'm so excited for them to come out here! They haven't been here since we've lived in this house, so am looking forward to this. (Wish we could be in a different house....that is owned by us......but that will be coming in the next year. We have to be patient! One life-landmark at a time!)
  • We will be having our graduation party. This will be an excellent fiesta! I am making Mexican food since it's great to make for the masses, I can whip up some killer salsa and shredded chicken (I must say), and it Gluten Free for one of my special guests! (my sister)
  • May 15 marks a very special day in our life........
    • 2 years ago, May 15, 2008; our U-Haul truck pulled into Tucson, AZ to start our lives in the southwest!
    • I cannot believe how fast 2 years went. Sometimes it feels like that happened yesterday.
    • Other times, I feel like a completely different gal was moving to this area! I can't believe how much one can change and grow in such a short period of time!
Things are going well down here - with the excitement of the end being visible. It's funny that I act like the end is so near. Just because I "walk" in my cap & gown on May 1, doesn't really mean much. I get a fake diploma, and don't actually get my REAL diploma/BSN pin until August 20! But, I'm excited to get Ryan back!

Don't get me wrong, I love my alone/serene time. (It's great for studying, and I get to eat whatever I want for supper "Hm...tonight I'll have a salad & toast with ketchup & mustard"). But seeing Ryan for about 20 minutes in the morning, and 1 hour at night kind of stinks!

Well, Happy Friday everyone (for I am sure many are reading this on Friday)! A recipe post of some sort is to come this weekend! So stay tuned.........

I agree on the alone time - it's great once in awhile and even necessary, but not all the time or even more than once a week or so!
I like to make popcorn for my supper if Paul is gone! We are so exicted to come for graduation and to see where you live - pictures just aren't the same! I am excited for hot weather as I know we will only be there a few days!

I am so, so excited!! Can't wait to see Tucson and hang out with you guys! You both have worked so so hard, so you deserve to celebrate! Mexican Fiestas are the best, in my opinion. When i host people, that is probably my #1 choice for what I would serve. Mmmm... Actually, I am heading to the store in a bit to get fixing for taco salad. :)

I like alone time, too, but it needs to be moderation. And i would probably need a whole lot less if I had a someone special to spend my time with. But i do actually like being alone, so that is good since i do end up spending alot of my time alone! I like that I don't have to consider what someone else wants for dinner. And I can eat random breakfasts without someone lookign at me and saying - really? You are going to eat that? LIke when I was at Target and was workign super long days, i had to eat a big breakfast to make ti through the morning & I would often eat Mac and cheese!! I am sure I would get some strange looks if I had a husband! :)
