The Joy of Curtains

I mentioned on Twitter the other day that since I withdrew from Graduate School that I've had an almost unnatural desire to do crafts, organize and decorate. Im kind of excited that the Lord has given me such a beautiful peace about the whole thing and I am able to embrace this whole wife role. I even went to walmart (alone) and picked out new sheers and ribbon for the sliding glass doors. I am embracing this new phase in my life and loving it! - Wifey

Bathroom Renovations. ... <-- Chris and I are currently in the middle of "fixing" our bathroom.

A few months ago, the handle for the shower broke.
This brought on the following ...

"When we fix the shower, we should update the bathroom" ... In retrospect, logic might not of been used in that statement. However, we are now working on the bathroom.
We decided that we were most likely NOT going to live in the Condo forever. Therefore, why should we spend a bunch of time and money on the bathroom? Let's just make it functional. ....
  So, we created a to do list and began to work.
We budgeted about 400.00 for the entire project, but i'm thinking we are going to go under budget . *Happy Dance*

Just for fun, I thought I'd share some of the pictures of the project and THEN when it's ALL DONE  I will show you the finished product.



I hope you enjoyed your day off of work as much as I did! I am looking forward to completing the …

My World is Changing. ...

I can hardly believe that Christmas is on Sunday!

As the holiday seems to be zooming by, I was thinking about one of my favorite Christmas songs.

"Where Are You Christmas"
Where are you Christmas
Why can't I find you
Why have you gone away
Where is the laughter
You used to bring me
Why can't I hear music play

My world is changing
I'm rearranging
Does that mean Christmas changes too

Where are you Christmas
Do you remember
The one you used to know
I'm not the same one
See what the time's done
Is that why you have let me go

Christmas is here
Everywhere, oh
Christmas is here
If you care, oh

If there is love in your heart and your mind
You will feel like Christmas all the time

I feel you Christmas
I know I've found you
You never fade away
The joy of Christmas

Has it really been 3 years?!

Today is my 3rd wedding anniversary. ...
I don't really have much to say except, here is the sappy letter I wrote for Christopher.

'tis the season...

" Dear Diary, I am REALLY looking forward to Christmas this year, especially because my parents are coming down the week before and I am going to cook a Christmas Dinner!" ...

Present time

On top of being sad about all of that ... I had to ask my family to stay home, cancel my Christmas dinner with family...

AND I just can't stop coughing. ...

Burts Bees  Honey Lemon - No relief. ..
Ricoli - Nothing!

Okay. enough complaining.

Successes for the day.

I think I better get a better duty. ...

On December 20th, 2008 I pledged my love to Christopher Jimenez and entered into holy matrimony (A.K.A. we got hitched!)

The last 3 years have been quite the roller coaster. We have shared so many wonderful experiences, laughed until we've cried, cried until we've laughed and genuinely enjoyed being US!

Last fall (around October) I was accepted into grad school. As you can imagine, I was SUPER excited! I LOVE LEARNING!

In fact ... "I've got a yearnin' for some learnin" - Goofy 
By Thanksgiving 2011, I had successfully completed 2 classes in my graduate program. I was encouraged with statements from my professor such as "You are one of the best students I've ever taught" - "FIU is privileged to have you in the program" - "Your writing / reasoning skills are superior to your peers"

I must admit, I am completely flattered that my professors think I am bright. To be honest, I have lived my whole life thinking of myself as an
