every second counts

Lots of pics for this post = update. First picture is of the new bedding mom got me for my room - a plum color. Love it - it looks great. No big deal but just thought since I'm updating on other areas of my life, might as well throw in the pic. Here goes with the updating - I'm going to try not to get Thursday and Saturday mixed up because I went to Medford both of those days. Yay.

The reason I went to Medford on Thursday was to give him his scriptures only...or something like that. When I got to his house, he had arranged this beautiful bouquet of flowers with my favorite color and flower in them. What a sweetie. We went out to dinner in Ashland to Martino's (Italian place). It was delicious. Back at his house I gave him this bag I had put together for him to help him relax: bag of Reese's Peanut Butter cups, fishing magazine, "Go Fish" card game (he loves to fish haha), a few cd's of Take 6, dvd of Secret Window, 2 liter Mountain Dew, picture frame with a pic of he and I. I think that's all - hope he enjoyed it. It was fun to put together and I hope it actually helps him relax as he is trying to move. We then watched So You Think You Can Dance ( we both enjoy the show) and then started to watch Secret Window but decided instead to take a walk in Bear Creek Park. All in all it was a great night. I left pretty late though (hehe) but it's all worth it. :)

Saturday brought a walk through Bear Creek Park so I could actually see it during the day - beautiful huge park. We then headed over to his parent's house to meet up with some of his sibs and their families. We stayed over there for a few hours and ate dinner. What a great family! Funny story though: Nic and I were outside watching some of his nephews jumping on the trampoline and then one of his nieces came outside. This is what she asked him: Uncle Nic, is this your new wife? haha Kids say the darnedest things! I think Nic was a bit embarrassed but I just laughed about it. Nic of course said no and then she asked him if I was his friend. Yes she is. Is she your special friend? Your girlfriend? Yes she's my girlfriend. It was really funny - a story that won't be forgotten. We left his parent's house and went up to a house he was watching to watch the sunset and watch a movie. Another amazing night and I didn't leave too late. haha

Monday he headed this way to KTown and hung out with my family (rents, Ben and Sharon and their kids). We hung out, ate a delicious dinner, hot tubbing, and movie time. I love the fact that he gets along well with my family and they all get along great with him. :) Everyday spent with him is always wonderful and every second counts.

The new bedding - way cute in person
The bouquet Nic got me - more lilies have opened and still more to come
I heard the reason he was frowning was because I wasn't sitting next to him
Sitting at Bear Creek Park
Walking around the park
The "sunset"
I am a lucky girl :D

It looks and sounds like Nic is a great guy. Any guy that gets a girl beautiful flowers is doing something right. I'm glad you are happy. Hey, I had to change my blog because I got a new email account. If you are interested here is the new site www.scjwearemarshall.blogspot.com
