Something New

Okay, so lots of new stuff this week:

The new job is going well. Although I'm not working near as many hours, and I'm making about one-fourth of what I was, I really enjoy it, love my coworkers, and I'm just happy to have a job right now.

The cop and I are putting in an offer on a home this week, which will be where we will officially start our life together. We hope to be closing at the end of May, so we can move in sometime in June.

I'm having some prints made of our new engagement photos. I finally got the disc of all the photos. Here's one of my favorites for your enjoyment:

My new blogathon site for Police Wives Online was a complete success for the first annual blogathon. We raised $335 through direct donations, and I am very excited about the things those donations will accomplish! So thank you for all of you who came by and supported me!

Pertaining to that site - I did my first ever video blog over there to do that drawing, which was really fun, so I may being doing a video blog in the very near future.

I got a new book in the mail today! I forgot I had preordered it, but it was waiting by the door for me when I came home this afternoon. Which is good, because I was having a hard time choosing what to read after finishing Harry Potter.

A new semester of school is coming... I just finished one of my two classes this semester yesterday. It ended with a final presentation that had taken up about a quarter of my life and time these past few months, so I'm glad it's finished.

I'm picking up my wedding dress this weekend! And my mother is taking me shopping, which means I will have a few more new things, hopefully.

I also have a new award for my blog, thanks to my good friend Ashley! Ashley was a total trooper through the PWO blogathon, staying up with me and writing for the majority of the event. So readers, go over and tell her how awesome she is for giving me this:
Thanks for the award, hon! It will be a nice addition to my award page.

Note to Self: Other than that, wonderful people, not a whole lot new to report. I hope to be back writing more normally when I finally finish this semester next week and have a little more spare time (and brain).

Congrats on the job going well, the offer, the dress (!), school and everything! (If you should ever have any questions about the home, feel free to ask and I'll give you my Texas answers.)
You must show pics of the dress too! :)
