settling in

i think we are finally settled back in to our life... at least as much as we can with all that the next 8 months will bring (read: stress from a wedding, finishing a PhD, and moving across the world) eeeekkkk....  

this weekend was fun and pretty productive. we didn't spend much time together cuz G had several studies, but lindsey was in town and we worked on some wedding craftiness. i SOOO wish i could share it, but i want there to be some surprises. anyway... just so you know we are very impressed with ourselves! i also finally booked a dj and am slowly getting some of the details worked out. still SO much to do though... 

the rest of my weekend was spent cleaning our apartment from top to bottom....FELT so good. it took 2.5 hours, but it feels like we can actually relax now. (i am never fully relaxed when there is a ring in the toilet and piles of laundry to be folded.) 

no other exciting news... i just felt like i needed to post something. OH... i found a quilt shop in town and they have classes for cheap. I know i could figure it out on my own, but I think a class would be fun and less effort. I also really want to get into embroidery... there has been lots of inspiration on some blogs i read. like this....i mean i dont think i'll ever be that good, but aren't those amazing??? (i also want to read her book so... looks inspiring for when we have kids someday....)

oh... and pretty soon i'm going to put together a google calendar that will be posted on this blog for people to see who will be visiting when while we are in france and where we'll be traveling to. hopefully we'll have LOTS of you coming!
