It's My Party...

... but I don't want to cry!

Today is my birthday, and it has been GREAT! I started out the day hearing one of the cutest little girls in the world sing me happy birthday. Breakfast was Cinnabon, bacon and strawberries, followed by presents! I got some super cute clothes, a neck massager, and a new kitchen thermometer. I also got lots of little things, like a new ladle, a box of nice chocolates, and bag of Lindor truffles, and the movie Where the Red Fern Grows (accompanied with tissues... my husband knows me so well!). I had a nice lazy morning watching M*A*S*H and spending time with the hubby.

Then, for lunch we had BLT's (so I love bacon, okay?). After that, I spent some girl time with my sister. We went to JoAnn's to get fabric for a project of mine (I'll be sure to post it when I'm done; it's going to be awesome!), then my mom came home and I got to spend some time with her, too!

This evening, Justin is taking me out to dinner at Claim Jumper, which should be really nice. I've never been there, but have wanted to try it for years!

I also got a sort-of birthday present in the mail today - I ordered a book for one of my linguistics classes, and it arrived! I need it in order to do my homework, and it should actually be really neat. It's a Chinese Grammar, basically giving all the info you would need to know to do a linguistic study of Chinese: sentence structure, phonological aspects, morphological process, all those super fun things! I'm so nerdy, I'm actually really excited to work on my homework tonight!

So, that's my day. It's been awesome, and mostly I'm just blogging about it so that those who have not yet wished me a happy birthday can do so in the comments ;-)

Thanks for reading!

So, I know that most of you probably think Justin is the only one searching for internships. Well, he's not. I was too. Well, a little tiny bit, which basically means I saw one and thought it would be totally awesome, so I applied for it. I love it when great opportunities just plop right in front of me in my email inbox. Awesome.
Well, I got it! It's for this semester, I'll be getting college credit for it. And what will I be doing, you ask? Editing the Department of English website. Yep. I'll be their proofreader, make sure there are no embarrassing mistakes, make sure the links all work, that kind of stuff. I'm so excited! You guys, I want to BE an editor some day. Like, sit-down-at-my-desk-with-a-red-pen-and-mark-up-your-book kind of editor. This is awesome, because it gives me experience actually editing something, and I can put it on my resume!

See all those red marks? Those will be from ME! 

Basically, I'm super excited that I got it. It's all done online, there's a spreadsheet thingy that I report stuff in, so I can do it whenever it fits in my schedule, at home, school, work (because my job is awesomely flexible like that!), anywhere! I just wanted to share my great news with y'all!

Still Alive

So, I've kind of been neglecting this blog for a while. Instead, I've been focusing on revamping my craft blog!
Life has been life. That's all it ever is though, so I don't really ever have too much to blog about. School is keeping me busy, and it's also keeping Justin VERY busy. That's why I've had more time to craft! :-)
Basically, if you want to keep tabs on me, you should follow my craft blog. You should follow my craft blog anyway, because it's awesome. If anything super exciting comes up (like, maybe when we find out where Justin will be interning this summer), I'll make a little post here. Otherwise, all of my attention will be directed toward my craft blog.
Thanks for reading!
