Ok, SOOO much has happened in the last couple of months slash weeks slash even days! Things have been go go go. I won't lie, I kinda like having a lot going on like it has been. But it is kinda relaxing today not having much planned but to blog, cuddle and play with my finley, and go look for some odds and ends for our "pad". Sounds like a good day to me. Plus, it is friday.. which equals the weekend.. and not only the weekend but LABOR day weekend!! woo woo! so NO SCHOOL MONDAY! haha.. we've been entertaining the thought of going camping.. but after our big dental BBQ picnic last night, and feeling how hot it was, I don't know if it is such a good idea.. my air conditioned bedroom sounds better for me, and finley!!
I do have a few different things that I was wanting to post about.. but I just don't know if its worth it to make a million posts.. so maybe I'll do a small readers digest version of the most important points.
Finley had her blessing day the weekend before we left for wisconsin.. she looked beautiful, and her daddy did such a good job. She didn't make a peep during the blessing, ben may or may not have almost dropped her when he went to show her off to the congregation but that is beside the point :)
Next "Big thing", we have officially moved to Wisconsin.. we live in Cedarburg, just outside of Milwaukee.. and we LOVE it. cutest little town ever. they have festivals here all the time, and Im getting really excited for the harvest festival right around the corner. Its supposed to be amazing here in the fall, and I believe it because there are so many deciduous trees here!
Last thing that I will blog about now.. bens white coat ceremony and his first week of school! We are so lucky to be going to Marquettes school of dentistry. I have met all the faculty, and was given a tour and it is so amazing! its all new facilities, and everyone is so warm, and you can really tell they want there students to succeed. Not only that but we have been blessed with an instant group of friends here. So happy to be where we are. I won't lie.. I totally cried when My parents left (they helped us move and got us all situated into our new world out here, which I am SOOO greatful for), but that is just to be expected.
Finley is Two months tomorrow so there will be another update stat!
