Passing the time ...

I'm getting married in less than one week so I thought I would take a break from wedding planning and wedding blogging to do a little questionnaire that I've seen on quite a few blogs lately about me and my almost husband!

♥ What are your middle names? Lynn and Thomas
♥ How long have you been together? We just celebrated our 4 year anniversary --- actually we forgot our anniversary (which was March 1st) and didn't remember until a few days later so we went out to dinner the day we remembered!
♥ How long did you know each other before you started dating? I'm not really sure ... I'd say probably 6 months to a year.
♥ Who asked who out? Jon asked me out
♥ Whose siblings do you see the most? Jon's sister ... but we are both really excited to see all our family in less than one week!
♥ Do you have any children? No
♥ What about pets? I had one cat (Lucky) when we started dating and then in July 2007 we adopted Layla from the SPCA together.
♥ Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?
♥ Did you go to the same school? High school ... no. College ... yes --- CSUS
♥ Are you from the same home town? Nope
♥ Who is the smartest? We are both pretty smart
♥ Who is the most sensitive? ME
♥ Where do you eat out most as a couple? Mexican restaurants or sushi
♥ Who has the craziest ex? Neither of us talk to any of our ex's
♥ Who has the worst temper? ME
♥ Who does the cooking? Me ... I love to cook AND I love that Jon does the dishes because I do the cooking ;)
♥ Who is more social? JON
♥ Who is the neat-freak? ME for sure!
♥ Who is the more stubborn? ME
♥ Who hogs the bed? THE CATS
♥ Who wakes up earlier? I do ... I'm not a morning person but sinceI start work at 6:30am and get up at 4:30am during the week I tend to fall asleep around 8pm at night so I'm stuck in a vicious cycle of rising early
♥ Where was your first date? Dinner at Rubicon in Downtown Sacramento followed by drinks at Chargins
♥ Who has the bigger family? Immediate family --- I do (simply because I have more parents because they are divorced and both remarried) but we both only have one sibling. Extended family --- me!
♥ Do you get flowers often? NO
♥ How do you spend the holidays? Together and sometimes with family - the Christmas season is a crazy traveling time for us to see all our parents & siblings!
♥ Who is more jealous? ME
♥ How long did it take to get serious? A couple of weeks ... maybe a month or so.
♥ Who eats more? JON
♥ Who does/did the laundry? Usually I do it on Sunday's while Jon is at soccer
♥ Who’s better with the computer? ME but since he started teaching he has learned a lot
♥ Who drives when you are together? JON

A hint of spring

My life is crazy busy right now. And when it's not ... I'm just spending my time with my husband-to-be enjoying the last couple of weeks before we are husband & wife.

Some days I'm so crazed that I can hardly think straight ... but today I thought I would take a break (from updating my wedding blog) to update this one.

I ran 3.1 miles last Saturday on the treadmill at our gym without stopping. My finish time was 38:55 and I felt great. I have not ran since. Like I said - life is busy!

The Jetta (my beloved car) has been in and out of the shop for most of February, and so far --- most of March, too. We have no idea what is wrong ... but its very frustrating and making things way more stressful.

The last few pounds that I lost have crept back up on me ... I've been eating badly and not exercising enough. I need to get back on track. I'm currently back up to 150lbs. With two weeks to go till the wedding. Ugh.

A couple of weeks ago we were working in our flooded back yard (we have a small drainage problem whenever it rains that we can't fix until after the wedding and until after the rainy season is over) and I discovered a little hint of spring :)

This is our flood plain - most of the vegetation you see here is gone now!

These are the flowers I discovered growing in our flood plain ... in the crappy clay dirt!

And this photo is just so I can show off our new TV
50" plamsa
Yeah, we like to stimulate the economy whenever we can

I don't know how much I'll be able to update during the next few weeks with our wedding coming up and then our honeymoon ... but I'll try! If not, I'll catch y'all on the flip side!

I'm starting a new and exciting photo project on the day of our wedding ... but I probably won't be able to post about it until a few days after that ... so check back!!!
