Christmas Month of Vacation and FUN!!!!!!!!!!!

We are still in the works of planning our vacation but I'm getting super excited about Christmas Break!!! It will all start off with this Thanksgiving. I'm going on a trip to Stephenville to stay at my uncles house. There I will receive gifts from my Dad and Step-Mom and Rebekah. Yay. Probably nothing super awesome, though... the gifts have been dwindling from my family. However, I will enjoy the company and be glad to see the little sister again so I can give her big sisterly advice and such.

Next, is NUTCRACKER CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!! WOOHOOO!!!! I'm most excited because I get to go shopping with my mother in law and sister in law and get beautiful dresses so we can look fabulous when we go. And we aren't getting any cheap crappy dresses, I'm talking nice, designer stuff. Finally a mommy who understands my need to be pampered. ahh... yes... the good life...

We'll skip over the following exams, (I'm not too worried), and move on to the next part. Seeing my brother!!! yay!!! He graduates from basic training in San Antonio so Jeff and I will haul ourselves down to see him, and stay overnight at a hotel room my parents will be picking up the tab for, suckers! Ok, they volunteered which surprised and delighted me. Once we've stayed overnight (this is all around the 12th), we leave on the 13th for Utah. Ahhh... I can never stay away from that state for more than a year at a time... but we're going to Jeff's Mom's family reunion, so it will be a treat for me to meet all 12 of her siblings... wow... or 11... I can't remember. At least it isn't a funeral this year, cause that was not a fun way to meet everyone last year.

After that, it's SKIING time!!! WOOT WOOT!!! Honestly, I'm looking forward to skiing the most, I'm pretty excited. So we'll be staying with Jeff's parents while they are there and possibly a few days longer in a cheap motel of some sort, I have to find one first. Then we're going to pick up Jeff's Broncho, which has been forever talked about but never seen by me. His uncle is supposed to be putting in the engine by the time we get there so we can take it and haul off on a road trip of our own choosing. We will be hitting Denver, and if I can convince Jeff after reading Ali's blog... Vegas!!! Oh Vegas in the christmas time!!!! It's gonna be awesome, cause not only does Denver have my parents, but it will have my brother and his skeezy wife! I would like a few minutes alone with that skeezy wife's toothbrush and if I do, I'll take a few incriminating photos for my religious reader's entertainment.

Somewhere in there we'll hit home and get our Christmas presents from Jeff's parents who ACTUALLY love us. I am really excited because I'm finally getting awesome presents probably for the first time in my life (I've heard a little about the things to come)... And my Christmas will end happily ever after.

From Trailer Park to Bryant Park

So I went and got my hair done yesterday after 3 freaking months!!! It looks great! You can see it by looking at the new picture of us I put on here... I might also add a few pictures that I took literally 10 minutes ago... I love the hair, not as fond of the cut... but it'll grow on me. So, as my stylist put it... I have now graduated from trailer park to bryant park lol... I did have some sick roots. Unfortunately I do not have a before picture... I avoided the camera for a while.

In other news... Schools almost out and Thanksgiving is almost here! I almost bought a dog yesterday.

I'm still working on Jeff but don't tell him...

Ok, so the story goes like this.... My mother in law and I went to the pet store yesterday and I met the CUTEST little pomeranian. He is white with apricot tips. I decided to name him Pommes Frites (pronounced POMM - FRITS) after the european name for french fries. I will try sending some photos to the computer so you can all see him and feel my pain in not being able to take him home... WHYYY?????

No babies this month. It's ironic actually, because I wrote the last blog and then an hour later my period started... it's been a rough one too, waking me up in the middle of the night with cramps... I'm sure you all wanted to know about that, but it's my blog so HA! I can write whatever I want! And you HAVE to read it! muahahaha.

So Jeff and I both feel kinda the same way... bittersweet. We'd gotten kinda used to the idea that we were going to have a baby, we'd half accepted it, and started planning our lives around it, just in case. But at the same time, we'd really like to wait. I didn't want to wait, honestly, a month ago. But now, having looked at it a little closer, I think it would be best for me to finish school, establish a career, and get a little more face time with the hubby before baby takes all my attention away. So it's definately not a bad thing either.

So... for all of you anticipating the results.. NEGATIVE

Bun in the Oven?

So many of my faithful readers (4?) might already know this, but I stopped taking my birth control about 5 weeks ago. Yeah... and guess who hasn't come to visit me??? Aunt FLOW. As you might've guessed, Jeff's pretty freaked out right now... as he should be... but what about me??? It's MY body this potential fetus will be feasting on! Ok, ok, I'm not that worried. I've always loved babies, but I'd sure like to add a few vacations notches to the ol' vacation belt before I start shooting out babies. ughh... the only reason I'm blogging about this is because I feel like I have no one supportive to talk to. All they say is "WHY DID YOU STOP TAKING BIRTH CONTROL???" or "YOU'RE TOO YOUNG, WAIT A WHILE" and I'm like... HELLOOO who died and made you ruler of my life? I stopped taking birth control because it's so incredibly bad for you and your body. It was also screwing with my marraige (mood swings and such), so I decided it had to go. And what is really killing me is the wait. Just waiting to find out... every day agonizingly painful. I'm taking a test tomorrow and I'll post the results... so... pray that I can know soon so I don't go crazy.
