Busy as can be!

Yesterday was a VERY full day. I made aebleskiver for breakfast (and since I was home alone, there were leftovers for today, and for tomorrow!), and then I went visiting teaching. Right after that I went to Justin's house and ate lunch (chicken salad sandwich... yummm...), and then we started day two of our apartment hunt!
After day one, there was really only one place that we liked, and it was kind of farther away than we would have liked. Day two, we saw five more places, and they were all good! So, we had six options, and had to whittle it down. Right now, there's one that stands out, but our decision isn't quite final. Hopefully this one will work out. It's on Southern and McClintock, so it's close to school, and also close to freeways, which will make it easier for us both to get to work. It's 600 sq ft, so not the biggest one we saw, but it feels very open. Plus, we went to apartment ratings, and most of the ones I've looked at there had a rating under 50% recommended. The apartment Ashley and Zach have was only rated at 55%, and they both like it, so I was expecting the rating to be fairly low, because that seems to be the trend. I wasn't worried about it being low, because I had looked up Ashley and Zach's, but the rating for it was 78%! Wow! There were 46 or 48 reviews, and only four or five had anything bad to say. Can't ask for much more than that!
We also went and added to our registry last night. We have 7 pages at bed bath and beyond now! Which, oddly, is only 50 some items. And we had 50 some items on our target registry before adding to it... Odd. Oh well. We are up to the 80's for Target now, but we'll probably add a bit more.
Also, last week was my bridal shower, and wow oh wow! It was great! The food was great, the friends and family were great, the gifts were great, and I'm so thankful to everyone who came and who helped throw it for everything! I can't believe how generous everyone is! It's really fun to think about putting all this stuff in the apartment we looked at yesterday, to try and imagine everything as it will be. :-D
That's all that's on my mind right now, thanks for reading!

I hate titles.

So... I haven't blogged in a while, and I don't know what all I haven't talked about. And frankly, I don't feel like going back and figuring out what I've already mentioned... so, you may get repeats, or you may not get it all, but, oh well. At least you're getting something!
This past weekend Justin and I went and looked at apartments! There are a lot of apartments in the valley! We went to just a few this past saturday, but there's one that is pretty promising. We'll continue looking though, no final decision.
I'm on Spring Break! Woohoo! Except, not much of a break. I've got a lot to do. Homework, study for midterms, plan a wedding, the likes.
We also went and got our wedding invitations (or at least half of them, they only had part of what we needed, so we had to order the remaining boxes), and that was exciting! They are really pretty, and I'm excited to mail them out and invite people to come give me stuff ;-) And also to come to our wedding, that's important too.
It just keeps on getting closer! I can hardly stand it! I had one of my friends get married this last weekend, and she was so incredibly ecstatic, and I know, because she told me, she hadn't gotten hardly any sleep that whole week, but she was buzzing with energy. It was fun to go and see their reception, and to picture what ours will be like. Yay for indoors... and real food... and people we know... :)
Well, I lost my train of thought, because I'm picturing how lovely it will be to go to sleep when I finish, so, I'm going to cut this short.
Thanks for reading!
