Because I was tagged…

…and because my husband is hogging the TV by playing Resident Evil…I’ll bite.

4 Jobs I’ve had
1. Page @ the FDL County Library (I retrieved all your microfische and magazines from the archives, thank you.)
2. Hostess/Waitress @ Chevy’s Mexican Eatery
3. Hair Salon Slave
4. Web Monkey at Capella U

4 Movies I could watch over and over
1. When Harry Met Sally
2. Knocked Up
3. Bridget Jones Diary
4. Any horror movie. ANY. It’s Monsterfest time on AMC and that makes me the happiest EVER.

4 TV Shows I watch
1. The Office
2. Ghost Hunters
3. LA Ink
4. Cops

4 Places I’ve lived
1. Fondle Sac, WI
2. A not-so-coed dorm at the U
3. Nice big apartments in Uptown
4. This tiny ass apartment in Uptown

4 Favorite Foods
1. Ravioli
2. Chipotle
3. Mac & Cheese from Noodles
4. Ice Cream Cake from Dairy Queen

4 Favorite Colors
I agree, this is a lame question. Mostly because there is only one color, and that is black.

4 Favorite Items of Clothing
1. My wide leg black denim pants.
2. Grey low-top Converse shoes.
3. My hott Chinese Laundry black heels I bought with NO option of ever really wearing in real life, since I am heels-retarded.
4. My gold dress I wore the night before my wedding. Too bad it leaves a trail of glitter everywhere I go.

4 Places I’d love to be right now
1. Europe
2. A beach in Kauai
3. In MY house (which we don’t own yet)
4. Whereever money grows on trees

4 Names I love but could/would not use for my children
Yeah, I don’t get it either. Per my email to ms martini, I WOULD use, Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha.

4 Reasons I would dump you if we were dating
(do I need to make a disclaimer that I’m married? Hey hubs – I’m NOT dating, and don’t plan on it.) :)
1. You had some sort of “save water” plan which included not showering.
2. You lived with your parents for any other reason aside from helping them with their terminal illnesses.
3. You mysteriously appeared from the bathroom with a coke moustache (and I’m not talkin’ cola).
4. You hated cats.

And done. Now, to figure out “what’s for dinner.” I think I’ll have PB&J. The hubs can fend for himself. Ghost Hunters is on in 45 minutes. :)

Things are looking up…slightly.

Well, after receiving a copy of my lease from our landlord, examining it and then having my fabulous Uncle Greg (fancy lawyer in San Fran) take a look at it, it seems we may move out whenever we want to (with 60 days notice) but if it’s during the winter we’ll forfeit our deposit. W. As long as we can get out of there when we find a house, I could give a shite.

So, the hunt continues.

Had a fun night last night, went out for happy hour beverages with some coworkers and then came home to watch the hour premiere of the Office. Thank GOD it’s the new fall season of all my favorite shows.

Tomorrow we’ll be house hunting, and then going to the hubs’ grandpa’s house to show him our wedding album. Then, a little birthday soirĂ©e for the hubs and I at Herkimer, VFW, and maybe The Front. Can’t get too drunk, we have early dinner plans with the hubs’ folks, and his sister and brother-in-law for the hubs & his Dad’s birthday. (Happy birthday Mike!)

And, at some point this weekend, we need to clean our apartment, do dishes, and laundry. AND write thank you notes for the wedding. Christ. Not to mention I’m working nonstop on a project for work (well, aside from right now). I need two more of me.

It’s Tuesday.

Yep, boring post title for a non-eventful day. The home buying itch has reached it’s peak right now. I just want to be in OUR house. I say our house because I haven’t settled on any of the ones we’ve looked at. We’re looking again tomorrow. Also we’re officially preapproved (by our previous mortgage lady – we missed her and went back!) so…all we need now is a house. :)

In non-house related news, my birthday is Thursday (boring 27!) and then this weekend we’re going to my folks house and taking in a Brewers game Saturday night. It’ll be nice and chilly. :)

Happy Humpday.

I attempted to have the hubs join me in “blogging” but he apparently doesn’t want to. I’ll keep working on him. :)

Tonight we’re going on our first official house hunt as a married couple. We went to some open houses a couple weeks ago and everything sucked, so now we’ll give it a whirl with our Realtor. As much as I would like for us to live in Minneapolis, everything it seems like we’re going to look at is in Richfield. It’d have to be a pretty fancy house for me to move to Richfield I think. Houses are more affordable in Richfield…but I LIKE living in Minneapolis. I suppose I should just shut up until we actually look at stuff.

The rest of the week will include (here’s hoping) a massive cleaning of our apartment, thank you notes, and more house hunting. :)

Wedding Break = Simpsonized

So…since I didn’t want to work on wedding stuff for an hour today at work, I did this instead. The soon to be hubs and Jenna…as Simpsons. :) You’ll see Boo-boo was Simpsonized, but Milo didn’t make it. Tough break.

That is all. No wedding updates for today…with 9 days to go.
