A crazy moment...

is what I had last night :) Normally I'm not much of a complainer but after enough frustration I needed to vent! It kinda makes me laugh now :) I'm grateful for my life and really shouldn't complain. I know I have more than some and I'm very lucky to be in the place I am now! Anywho... I was really frustrated last night because I saw a million grammar mistakes in that post! O well, frustration and late night venting doesn't add up to much! Not much new in my world right now. Slowly progressing with my homework and would like to get a few baby items sewn for one of our doctor's whose wife is having her baby tomorrow. I also have a family session wednesday evening and looking forward to that... but that's about it! Nothing exciting!

I'm tired

I think this post is going to turn into a vent. Get ready.

1. I really am tired. I have so much to do, so many hobbies, so many commitments that I'm just tired. I love having stuff to do, love having hobbies, and love having commitments but I'm tired. I should not complain about this because I'd rather be busy then a couch potato. Sean and I have been on the run for about 2 months now. We go to the lake just about every weekend we are free and while I love going, it's a LOT of work. Between packing, unloading, reloading, and unpacking, it becomes more work then fun sometimes. But we've made so many friendships and so many memories I wouldn't change it. It's something we enjoy doing together but still... it's a lot of work! We've gone on vacation, which was awesome, but when we got home we had laundry and we had to clean and we didn't get to relax. We finally had a weekend home and it was so nice to get semi-caught up on things but I'm still not caught up. Maybe 45% but that would be pushing it.

2. I'm really tired of not feeling appreciated. This goes with many aspects of my life. Sean makes me feel appreciated on most days but lately I haven't done much for him to appreciate. I'm tired of doing things for people, helping them out and not receiving any appreciation for it. I don't EXPECT it but it would be nice every now and then. I normally wouldn't care b/c I'm doing things for people I care about, but recently it's gotten worse. Maybe I need to stop being helpful. But I can't, because that's not me. I wouldn't be who I am if I wasn't helpful, if I didn't go over the top to help, and I wouldn't feel good about myself if I didn't do these things. I don't other's aren't like me, but if they aren't going to be helpful can't they at least thank the person that is? I think most of the world has come to expect things and take things for granted instead of appreciating things. I also don't appreciate people putting others or myself down in order to make them feel better about themselves. Why can't people be nice? Plain and simple - worry about your self- NOT OTHERS!
Ok that's it. Enjoy? I'm off to may some to-do list ( my fav!)

Good night folks.

So tired...

I don't think my life has slowed down once in the past 3 weeks. I'm starting to feel the effects! I also can't believe it's been almost 2 weeks since I've blogged. So let's get started.

As you probably read or already knew, Sean and I headed to Charleston, SC for a 1 year anniversary vacation. It was SO great to get away for a while, but we were ready to come back. We stayed with Sean's good friend Jonathan and overtook this apartment for the week. He was probably ready to see us leave! Anywho, the flight down was good without a problem! We got there and guess what we did first?!?!? If you know me well enough, then you know I went shopping. They had an awesome outlet mall there and while I shopped my heart out, the boys just kinda wondered around! But guess what.... they had a Coach store! I was so excited and pretty much spent all my money there. I got a new black purse, a collar for Reese (she LOVES it) and a new wallet to match my new purse! I was in heaven in that store and only wished I had more money. So that was the highlight of trip - for me of course. The next day we took a boat tour to Ft. Sumter. Jonathan's daughter Campbell came with us and kept me entertained while the boys looked at history stuff. I'm not much of the history buff, but the boys seemed to think it was interesting. Jonathan's daughter is absolutely ADORABLE. She calls me Princess Andi (fitting isn't it?) ever since my wedding day when I was all dressed up! And I happen to love it! I think Sean should call me that... :) (Not gonna happen though!) The next day it rained and we didn't do much. Sean's cousin Sonya lives in NC and drove down with a friend and her fiance and spend Friday thru Sunday with us. Friday night we ventured into downtown Charleston and sampled the nightlife! We went to a bar called Wet Willies! It has all slush drinks made with grain alcohol that were SO good. Things were def. a little fuzzy after we left that bar! Saturday we went the beach! LOVE the beach! We had a good time jumping waves and pretty much acting like we were 12 again! It was awesome. The beach alone made me want to go back to Victoria, pack all my belongs and move right onto the beach. Now if only I had 5+ million to buy me a house on the beach! Sunday we ventured downtown again and walked what seemed to be 100 miles all around the city! It was so much fun but very tiring! And on Monday we hung out by the pool, the boys played some golf and then we went and grabbed supper. Nothing to exciting but it was a nice finish to our vacation! Overall, it was a great trip and I'm glad I got to visit another part of the US I've never been!

This weekend we had the honor of helping my parents move to their new house. Not really exciting but I do have exciting news about who is moving into my parents old house. The "rumor" in GB is that it's Blake Shelton's (the country singer) ex-wife that is moving in! How crazy huh?

We'll I'm gonna be busy this week with some photography! I have an engagement shoot tomorrow and then a baby session with my friend Becca's son Eli! Can't wait!

And we're off...

Just a quick goodbye as we get ready to leave for our trip! I'm so excited to get out of KS and visit a place I've never been before! And I'm sure Sean's way excited to see his best friend/lover that he hasn't seen since March. There's a coach outlet and the beach there and that's all I need for the week! Hope everyone has a great time in KS - Hope Big Bertha doesn't give us any problems on the east coast!

We made it!

Today is Sean and I's 1st anniversary! This past year has gone so fast, that I can't even believe it's our 1 year already. We don't have much in store, just dinner tonight because we leave for South Carolina in 2 days! So we have some packing to finish up and other little things. But I'm very much looking forward to Gella's tonight, Sean's favorite place to eat. I also might be prancing around in my wedding dress here later tonight!!! :)

As for some catching up, we spent the wk.end at Lake Wilson with some friends and had an awesome time! We got burnt once again and are paying for it now, but it was a blast! Very very hott! I need to load some pictures to my computer and once i do I will post some. But I'm sure that'll be after our trip, which by the way I am VERY ready to leave for.... Goodbye KS for a week!

Here's to many many more years of being married!
