It's my birthday!

After a long day of classes and meetings, I was excited to come home and open cards from family and presents from my fiance and friends!  Things have been busy around here as usual, with 3 exciting weekends in a row: my parents visiting, my bridal shower with friends visiting, and a trip to NYC to visit another friend.  This weekend coming up will be a little break with nothing major scheduled, then the weekend after we're going to visit my fiance's family!  It's all fun, but exhausting!

Wedding planning is going pretty well lately, with most of the big decisions made.  We've got my dress, a location, a band, and food, plus an officiant.  That's all you need, right?  The rest will take care of itself, right Mom? :)

As you might have guessed, classes have started up again and I'm trying to get at least the first half of my dual thesis done by May (or June?).  Yesterday one of my good friends defended her PhD thesis, and now she's a Doctor!  I can't believe that, and I'm so proud of her.  I'm also so jealous that she's done!

Speaking of done, I am really ready for winter to be done.  It's been so cold, windy, and snowy lately, and I've had enough.  I'm about ready to move to Australia for the rest of the winter :)

Keep your fingers crossed for a warm spring starting soon!


  1. HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Thank you so much for being there for me yesterday. :)
