Whoot for news

It's probably about time for a quick update. I mean it has been a few weeks. Granted it's mostly the same old, same old.

Work has be hectic, I've been picking up/ covering hours for people whenever I can, the extra cash is nice. though most of it goes right into savings for reasons. Reasons I can't say yet. I'm not exactly allowed. xD Only Jess and Martika know why... but they too have been sworn to secrecy. When the time comes, I'll post all about it on my blog of course.

In exciting news we got a kitten. Her name is Ripley, she's adorable. She's a little brat though, always wants to play when we want to sleep, and vice versa. xD The other cats are still getting used to her, but Jon and I are now apparently official crazy cat people, because we have four of them now.

We're slowing making the house more like a home, finally deciding on colors, and the types of plants we want in the garden. You know, like couples do. It's nice. It's all falling together, even if it does take some time and money to get it all done. Our biggest expense is going to be the new mattress we really need/ want to get. It's a bit pricey, but it'll be worth it for the wonderful sleep we'll get once we have it. 

I've also forgotten how wonderful Netflix is. We finally got better internet service. Everything is clear and fast, we can watch Netflix properly, YouTube doesn't take ages to load, it's fantastic. Such a long overdue little thing we needed to get done. I can watch all those fun documentaries, and tv shows I love. ^.^

I'm trying to figure out where exactly March went. Where February dragged on for what seemed like ages, March blew by like nothing. It's weird. But Spring is on it's way, and it is truly welcomed... I'm done with snow and cold weather. 

For the time being that's all I have to say. That may change, I have a feeling a small rant is coming up, nothing too terrible. I promise. xD

Adventures of a Dove, her Lion, Panda partner in crime, and a Bear

This isn't so much a update post as it is a set of pictures of my recent adventures.

Pretty fountain, and even prettier Tiffany & Co.
we were so close to going in, but decided
we weren't appropriately dressed. xD 

He got a hold of my phone. Look at that face, he looks sooo pleased
to be out in the sunlight and shopping. 

His epic semi-accidental selfie of the both of us... fantastic

My beautiful partner in crime. ^.^

The best part of Sundays, Suspect Earth band practice. :D 

Like I said, not so much an update, more like photos I've decided need to be shared with all my readers. Hopefully I'll have more to write about in the near future. Like Schmidts. German food and adventures (again) in the German Village. Excited for that. I love German food, and this place is supposed to have some of the best in the area. Next time we go out, I'm finding a Korean restaurant, I think Jon would like that. 

Jess, Charles has been given the animal name of bear.... just thought I'd point that out.

In like a Lion and out like a Lamb..... yay March

It's update time, you know, because that's fun and all. I've been good about it, makes me happy that I can at least semi- keep this updated. It's the one thing I do on a regular basis anymore. I almost never get on IMVU anymore, no one else is ever one and the reasons I used to be on all the time are no longer there (aka, depression, anti-social personality, no motivation, toxic relationship, you know the old norms). But enough of that. Onward and such.

I made a horrible and yet, great mistake last week. I picked up hours at work, lots of hours... early hours. I am not a morning person. Somehow though, I made it through and I will have made as much in only a week, as I do in an entire pay period. Heck yesh. On top of that I still have this week and tips too. Awesome. It'll be a really nice paycheck next week. I can get ahead on bills and put some into savings.

Jess and Charles are supposed to come down and visit me this weekend, really excited for that. I miss my partner in crime. Plus it's an excuse to drag Jon out of the house for couples activities like KDB; think Chuck e. Cheese for adults, kinda like Dave & Busters. I think we're all looking forward to that, being the nerdy dorks we all are. Then other activities like dragging the guys around shopping/ exploring at Easton and Mario Kart couple against couple... so excited for that. We don't get to hang out with too many couples, and the ones we do, we usually don't do much. So this is such a nice change.

Hmm, I pre-ordered Frozen, because you know, it's one of my absolute favorite Disney movies now. It's still a bit of a wait for it, but I'm excited. It was my one splurge this paycheck. I feel really good about keeping myself on a decent budget now. I never really had that ability before, but now that I have all kinds of responsibilities and bills to pay, I had to force myself to learn to budget and save money. It's good to be a responsible adult. xD 

But enough of that. I don't have much else to ramble about. Other than the weather finally looks like it's decided to be spring. So excited for that. Nice warm weather, adventures, gardening. It'll be nice. 

I'm finished for the time being, hopefully I'll be able to post about this awesome weekend, hopefully. Until next time! Toodles!
