Photobooth Friday 5-26-06 and other thoughts

hee hee- I really like this one-

It is part of the strip I took a few weeks back. I gave one of the strips to my mom for Mother's Day and the other to hubby for an anniversary giftee- he thinks I am crazy, and loves it.
I kinda wish this one was in color because the scarf I have on is really pretty and sprakely- but that's okay.

Almost forgot it was Friday today!
Happy long weekend everyone!

If you are in town come help us move! We got the keys last night and I can hardly wait to get stuff into the new place.
I even have a little garage door opener thingy- trust me this is big, I don't care how *normal* it is, this is my first- I love that I am 28 years old and can still have *firsts*.
My mom keeps shaking her head and saying, "we've come a long way" and we have. I lived in a mobile home for a good portion of my childhood (don't even make jokes, if you grew up out in Gerlach, Nevada this would not be so funny), so a house that is 2800 square feet is SO over the top and amazing to me~
As I was pulling boxes into my new closet (a walkin, again, a *first*) I took a deep breath and thought, wow for some reason I knew I would be here-It is like I put the idea out into the universe, and everything happened the way it should- and here we are. The house is in a part of town that I love- we are in a subdivision, but we are inside "the McCarran Ring" (I working and play with City Planners all day, this is a good thing, trust me- it just means we aren't living in the sprawl, we aren't encouraging the growth, we are within walking distance to UNR, downtown, the park, my mom's, the Truckee River- As Martha would say, "its a good thing")
The house has plenty of room to grow. There are friendly neighbors, and multiple bathrooms- (no more potty dance and pushing and shoving to get to the pot first after a long drive). There is space for us to have a real dining room table and more than 4 people over for dinner without having to manuver or rely on fabulous weather to take us outside. However, the back yard is BBQ ready and the best part? there is a cat door in the garage- it was meant to be.

I know I am blessed- that most peole don't have what I have and I am SO FULL OF JOY AND THANKS! right now it isn't even funny.
Now all we need is to have a party!!! who's coming????

Have a wonderful and safe weekend everyone.

I'll be there! Let's see, NW IL to Nevada, maybe Sunday, early. Wait, the kids will want out of the car a few times, maybe Tuesday? Forget it, I'm staying home, but your house sounds awesome! 2800 sq ft! BIG! We bought a house 4 years ago, and I love it so much. Our first place together was a warehouse in Oakland, so we've come a ways too. i guess Punkers grow up too....

I saw a comment you left on another's blog and of course had to come by when I saw your wonderful name "Nessie Noodle"! Congratulations on your home! I, too, just moved into my first home a few months ago (in Portand, Oregon) and a wonderful, wacky adventure it is! I'm so glad to have found your blog. Enjoy your new home and may you always have many new "firsts" in your life.
