Would you like to biggie size that?

Yes, I would. This is a biggie-sized blog. I've heard a bunch of you complaining that I need to update my blog. Even Uncle Sam went as far as to leave me a comment about it. Well, if you insist, then here's what you asked for.

First of all, one day I came home from school or work or wherever I was, and sitting in the living room was a dozen dried roses, with a love note underneath them. I have a stud for a husband.

A couple weeks later, Mark was at work and I was bored. It just so happened that my best friend Steph Fisher was coming up that night, so we called up our other high school friends and got together. The plan was to go up the canyon and roast marshmallows over a fire. However, we forgot wood, and the firepits were all frozen over. So, we roasted our stuff over a small barbeque in a student housing parking lot. Great fun!

Just the other night, I sold my shoes. These weren't just any shoes. These were my ballroom dance shoes, ordered from London. Obviously, since I'm not on the ballroom dance team anymore, it was pointless for me to have them anymore.. But they had so many memories attached to them. I wouldn't have sold them, but this year's team was leaving for a competiton in California the next day and that day in practice one of the girls' shoes broke, so I did her a favor and sold mine to her. What a sad day. I'll miss those shoes and the memories they held. Thank Heaven I have Mark in my life to create new memories with.

I've had several requests for a virtual tour of the house. So, here it is.
This is our living room. Can you guess a color theme?

These are a few of our favorite things - the game shelves.

This one is Mark's personal favorite - the entertainment center. Notice that all of the nintendo games are labeled and very well organized.

These next two pictures are leading up to something awesome. This is a mask I bought when I was in Venice, Italy.

This one is a picture I bought at the Louvre Museum in France.

These are in our bathroom, which makes our bathroom a European bathroom. It's European because when you go in there "Eur-o-pean".

This is our lovely little kitchen in all of it's glory.

Here is our great bedroom with all of the wonderful things that were given to us.

Finally, my favorite part of the house (mostly because I did this) the storage room.

Pretty much, this is the biggest blog ever posted on my site. Hopefully I'll get our latest adventures up soon, but I'm waiting to get pictures from our friends - I can't believe I forgot my camera!
