Hello lovelies! I know, I know, I've been totally slacking on the updates...and pics of the new house now that we're all moved in (well...there's obviously still some boxes and other stuff in the garage and elsewhere, but you know what I mean)! Sadly, this post will not contain house pictures as I need to do a little tidy-ing up before I take pictures to post!

Everyday since we've moved has been full of busy days learning/working at my new job, and taking care of house stuff. I seriously don't even know the last time I went to the gym, but I have actually been eating decently ever since we got our fridge delivered, so at least I'm doing well on one front!

We are still without blinds for all the windows, so trying to get dressed/undressed each day is a challenge, as every single room (including my walk in closet), except the downstairs half bath, has at least one window in it! My parents and I went to Home Depot yesterday and got all the blinds and my dad and Kevin will be FINALLY installing them on Sunday! Thank God!

Last weekend, we did a lot of house stuff, but we also made time Saturday afternoon/evening/night to head to the California State Fair! So although I don't have house pictures, I do have a few from the fair!

Our who group! Israel and Paul look so mean in this picture, but I promise they're not! Lol

 In other fun news, my friend from Fresno, Lauren (I've mentioned her a few times before) recently applied for and got hired for a job here in Sacramento! She is moving here in the middle of next month and I could not be more excited!!!

So far I am loving my new job, though it is crazy how much there is to learn and how busy the office is. All the people that work there are so nice and fun and I feel like my decision to take the job was a great one!

Anyway, gotta get to some cleaning and catching up on some DVR-ed shows. I swear, house pictures are coming soon...hopefully next week!

I'm alive, I promise!

I have not been able to keep up with reading the blogs I follow, nor have I been able to update due to no internet at my NEW HOUSE yet and being so busy!!! A full update will hopefully be coming next week with pictures of the house!

Ps...I did this post at lunch today and it didn't post...
I came home from work to sunflowers (my favorite) and goldfish (another favorite) on the kitchen table from my love! Isn't he a doll???

So I completed my first week at my new job yesterday...and what a week it was! There is still SO MUCH to learn, but am starting to get into the groove and learning the new language I have to learn for a dental office. I've been told it will take me a few weeks to really feel like I understand what I'm learning, so I keep telling myself to chill when I freak out about not knowing enough. The girls in the office are all really nice. One of them, who's position is the same as mine, is named Jenny. We thought maybe it'd be a good idea to go by our middle names so as not to confuse the patients and whatnot...but we also both have the same middle name! What are the odds?

And some super fabulous news on the house!!! We get to sign closing documents tomorrow at 8:00 AM!!!!! Weird that they're able to do it on Sunday and ANNOYING that it is so early on a weekend, but it is worth it. Our final walk through will be Thursday morning and once we sign off on that (assuming we don't need them to fix/change anything), we should get our keys by the next day sometime! I am BEYOND excited! Sooooo many new things/changes going on in my life right now...kinda stressful, but also so exciting at the same time!

So...since I'm essentially probably moving NEXT weekend, I got a start on organizing, getting rid of, and boxing up stuff today (while Kevin is at a Giants game with some coworkers)...Went through tons of old pictures and school stuff and organized them all which took forever, but it was fun looking at all my old pictures! Also have been washing my new towels and new (EGYPTIAN COTTON!!!) sheets so they're ready for the new house...and of course boxing up some stuff that isn't already in boxes (my new dinnerware, pots and pans, etc. are still in their original boxes so I obviously didn't have to box up those types of things) Packing, moving things, and unpacking things are not my favorite pastimes, but the excitement of being in a new house with the man of my dreams makes it all a little better. :)

As far as working out goes, I have not done it a single time this week! Due to my new job being about an hour or more with traffic from my parents home (but only about 10-15 minutes from the new house), I just don't feel like I have time. I am so exhausted after the long workday and just would rather eat dinner with my family and relax before going to bed early to do it all over again. My eating was okay this week up until yesterday and today (it also seems to go decently well during the week and I just lose all focus on the weekends, something I definitely need to work MUCH harder on), but I just feel so bloated and blubbery and like I'm losing muscle tone due to no gym-age. Once we are moved though, and my gym is literally a block away and the bf working so much, I will seriously have nothing better to do after work than work my butt out! So hopefully, I will stop feeling so fat, and instead more fit, in the next few weeks, Hopefully is definitely the key word there.

Anywhoooo...time to figure out if I am doing anything this evening and if so, get ready to do whatever it may be, so I'm outta here!

Long, fun weekend and first day at the new job

Well it took me quite awhile to get up to date on all the blogs I "follow" as I have not had a chance to do so since Thursday. Now time to catch you all up on what I've been up to since then!

Most of the weekend consisted of eating and drinking and I feel like I've gained about 10 pounds but its probably more like 2-4...but my weight typically fluctuates in a 2-4 pound range anyway so hopefully it'll go away rather quickly.

Friday was my love's birthday AND our pre carpet walk through....oh AND my Fresno friend, Lauren came into town!

(Part of) the kitchen (floor is covered by paper to avoid being wrecked by construction workers' foot traffic)

There were a few more photos taken that day but I only bothered to post the most fun ones.

That night we went out on the town for Kevin's birthday...I don't have many pics of that night (or the weekend for that matter) as they are all on Lauren's camera like last's a funny one of the three of us though:

(Kevin got an SF Giants toaster for his bday and felt the need to show it off)

Saturday was spent being hungover until noon or so and then doing some shopping! Later that evening, Kevin, Lo, and I went to Buffalo Wild Wings and watched the UFC fights and had dinner...then went to a friend's house for some beer pong but didn't stay out too late due to being tired from the night before and running around all day.

Sunday we did a little more running around, then went over to Maria and Karl's for a "3rd" of July/Kevin's bday party BBQ. We had a slip-n-slide, kiddie pool, squirt guns, beer pong, lotsa food, fireworks, and more. It was a super fun time!

Then on Monday we slept in and then Lo headed home :( Later in the afternoon some of my family members, as well as Kevin's parents, came over for a 4th of July BBQ and also to celebrate Kevin's bday some more. We ate way too much and played lawn darts! Finally that evening, we headed over to a friend's house to watch a local fireworks show (as he has a great view from his house)! The show was pretty good but we didn't stay very long after it ended as Kevin and I were both exhausted and had to be up early this morning for work.

OH! My sister also came home and visited this weekend :) She, her boyfriend, and her roomie also came to Maria and Karl's house for the BBQ Saturday!

Today was my first day at my new be honest, I am a little overwhelmed but I expected to be (as I mentioned in an earlier post), but I am sure I will be able to get it all figured out over time. All the girls in the office seem to be very nice and get along well with one another, which is awesome! It was a very long, fun weekend, plus a long first day at my new job, so I am exhausted....I will not be attending the gym tonight. My workout routine will most likely be a little touch and go between now and when I move as I get off work later now than at my old job AND it is at least an hour drive home (once I move it'll be more like 10-15 minutes) hopefully I don't get too definitely going to at least try to do well food-wise (and am only about 50 calories over my goal for today and do not plan on eating anything else before bed). is time to let my brain relax and unwind, so until next time...
