February.

So, it's been a while since I've blogged, and that's mostly been because I've barely had enough time to do homework and get sleep, let alone write a blog. Plus I got sick, which made it even harder, because then when I wasn't doing homework, I really really needed to sleep.
Anyway, two days ago I had a birthday! And it was awesome! I got lots of great stuff! I got a set of 16 pots and pans, some super cute kitchen stuff, decoration stuff for Christmas, and, yeah, mostly everything I got will actually be useful for the future! Which is excellent, because that's what I really wanted. Because, well, I look at all the crap I have that I don't need, and I think, dang, I have to pack all that stuff up soon, and I don't really need more crap. So, yay for useful presents! Oooh, and I also got a SUPER DUPER cute pair of pink pj pants (particularly wonderful because Sarah made them, and she made them long enough! Yay!). And I got two cd's of Harry Conick Jr, and the book The Infinite Atonement. So, lots of awesome stuff. Thanks to all for the wonderful gifts!
Other than that, February thus far has been pretty uneventful. The first two weeks, not much happened. Homework, school, work. And I got sick. :-P But I'm getting better... sort of. Mostly. You could say. As long as I don't do anything except lay in bed. ANYWAY...
We went and picked out wedding invitations, that was fun! And we finally have colors. And when we went to pick out invitations, we stopped by his grandparents house, because it was super close, and his grandma has a little painting store, where she gives lessons, and has stacks and stacks of paintings, things she's done during lessons, and she told me to pick one! So I got a painting! It's really cool, it's of a boat, and it's all blue and white, and the boat is on the edge of a lake, and it totally looks like it could be a scene from a book. So I think I'm going to write a story around it. When I have time....
Also, Valentine's Day was fun :-D. We went to Jenny's royal princess ball in the afternoon, everyone was dressed up as princes and princesses and knights. Except my dad, who was the dragon :-). Then in the evening we went and saw a movie (yay for movie passes from work!), and we went to dinner. I made him some brownies for his gift (they had a layer of symphony bar chocolate in the middle, the kind with the nuts, and then caramel on top, I was trying to make them turn out like turtle brownies. I think I should have put nuts on top or in the brownie as well though. Now I know for next time!), and he got me some potted tulips, which are very beautiful, and a box of chocolate.
Well, not much else to update. Thanks for reading!

Haha oh... oops. Blue and black. But not like bruises. :-D I'll see if I can find a picture with a close match of the blue we picked.
