Yes, its true. I actually completed a project! And I have a very bad photo to prove it:
I'm very proud.
With my DH's help, I modpodged this poster to a thin board we bought at Home Depot. Then, we modpodged over the top, spray-painted the black border, and clear-coated over everything. I feel just like a mother who birthed her first child.
We also completed another project, of which, sadly, I have no pictures. You'll just have to take my word that it's awesome. Its a cat tree--and the cats love it! Also, it sits over the top of the litter box, so you'd never know its there! Its much prettier to look at and it covers the smell.
By way of other news, we've killed off two more of our fish. They were eating the other fish---what goes around comes around, wouldn't you say? Serves them right.
We've been surviving school rather well. Of course we're busy, with jobs and school, but we still try to go out and have some fun. Can you guess what this is?
Its the embers from a bonfire we had. Pretty cool, eh? And yesterday for our date night we went out for sushi--sushi is a once-in-a-while commodity that is necessary to our survival. I don't know what I'd do without it! Nor do I know what I would do without my sweet husband to support me. I came home to this one day:
I can't believe we're already on the second week of school! I'm sure I'll be tired of it soon, but right now it seems to be flying by! And other than one embarrassing incident where I knocked my bag over and a bright yellow tampon fell out, it hasn't been all that bad. I will cautiously say I'm going to enjoy my classes (you never know when that might change). I feel so old and smart. The only part I'm having trouble with in my new schedule is getting up at 5:30am twice a week. I'm just hoping my body will get the hang of these new hours pretty quick.
Here I am, being excited about doing stuff
In spite of all the reading and writing and studying, the man and I have still found some time to go out and enjoy ourselves (technically...we FORCEFULLY MADE time). We went to 2 movies: Scott Pilgrim, and Vampires Suck. Let me just say--Scott Pilgrim? "An epic of epic epicness" (scottpilgrimthemovie.com). Please, see the movie! It will better your life. As for Vampires Suck, well, it was funny, but I would put it in the 'wait 'til its in redbox' category. I also got out of making dinner for a couple nights, as we happened upon some free pizza for a work powwow and a class meeting. I love that you can always find free food somewhere around here. Speaking of which, Bread & Soup Nite starts soon! Yum. But anyway. On Sunday, we threw a huge dinner for a bunch of our friend family. I include this in my list of fun things we've done, because I enjoyed it! Part of that was the fact that I didn't have to do many dishes...we went disposable. We had a total of 12 people over, and we fed them ALL. And most recently on the list of things we've done was attending a good friend's birthday party, where we ate German chocolate cake and homemade Danish pastries.
It turned out super fun (it had to be, it was Star-Wars themed)! As a gift, we bought her a purple Betta fish, whom she named Fromage (I hope all you french-speakers understand the hilarity of this). So fitting. It was a great night--we got to see old friends, meet new people (one of whom I actually ended up recognizing from years ago), and we talked late into the night. 11pm is late for us. SHUT UP. Although we were told several times that night what a cool married couple we were! Which is nice to hear, because we both try to stay involved. What can I say? We love sticking ourselves smack-dab in the middle of life!
On a side note...these pillows were a late birthday gift from my mother-in-law! She made the quilted shams ( to match the bedspread which she ALSO made) and the white ruffly one herself! At last....I feel our bed is complete.
