Justin is so very thoughful.
I have been having a rough couple of days.
And today at work I received the MOST BEAUTIFUL bouquet of sunflowers. Fire Sunflowers and regular sunflowers.
They smell amazing.
And they were sent to brighten my day!!
The flowers are beautiful but I am most touched by the thoughtfullness of Mr. Justin.
It is nice to feel this way. I am thankful!!

i just finished reading Jane Erye. I really liked it. I loved how it left you hanging right up until the end. I like Jane, I want to speak more like her.
Well, we offically sent out our invitations. This is really exciting!! And if one more freaking person tells me, "boy, do you think you sent them out early? YOU ARE SUPPOSED to send them out about a month before." I say to these people.........WHO FREAKING CARES when I send them out. I could send them out 5 months before if I liked. I understand the reasoning, you don't want people to "forget" about your wedding. Listen, if someone is gonna forget my wedding fine by me. We wanted to send them before the holiday and so that our many out of town guests will have time to make arrangements. Geeez, now leave me alone already!!!!
I was stuck in 3 hours of traffic today trying to get home from Orange County. Boy was that annoying. I do like the rain though. I love how it smells!!
I am really sad that I missed Gomez the last time they were here in the states. I was listening to them today, and I just love Bens voice. I think I should get their new album, I have waited long enough.

Monday is here.
I had the best weekend in a long time.
Justin and I bought a bed, new mattresses, and a 7 drawer chest (thanks to his grandparents). I am in love with the set!! I really like it. I am so excited.
Justin moves in this Saturday and then a little less than 3 months till I move in!!! I can not wait.
We also decided on our centerpieces. Justin and I spent at least 2 hours in Joann's Fabric and it was a blast. We laughed and just had so much fun.
I really have a lot of fun when I am with Justin. One of my favorite things about him is his face when he is really cracking up!! He closes one eye like a pirate and his mouth gets really big. It is so funny!
Saturday Night we trekked to Azusa and saw Joy Electric. Always a great show!!!
Sunday Morning was church and then we had Sunday Night Supper with the Lofgrens, which is always note worthy. Last night was our turn and we made Mexican Pizzas (justin created this years ago all by himself), they were yummy.
The best part of the whole weekend was that I got to spend it with Justin. Now that we are both working Full Time it has become hard to see each other during the week. So, it's all about the weekends. One thing that is cool is that Justin misses me during the week as much as I miss him. And that is always nice!
So yeah, this weekend was fun times with that Justin Souza!

Ahhhh, it's Friday. I am looking forward to this weekend.
On Saturday, Justin and I going out to buy a bed. Neither of us have a queen bed so, his grandparents gave us a gift and told us to go find a bed. It is really exciting.
We found a place to live as well. Justin is actually moving in on the 16th and going to be living there for 3 months all by himself. I think that he is going to get really lonely. He comes from such a large family and he has always had a ton of roomates, so I think this time for him is gonna be hard, but we'll see it may turn out to be a great time for him.
I have already started having wedding dreams. It's weird but I actually have gotten some ideas for the wedding at 5:00am in a dream. Well it was actually like half dream state and half being awake. Anyways, yeah it's been pretty cool.
I think Politics make me laugh.Everyone thinks they know everything about everyone. I don't think ANYONE knows George Bush and I don't think ANYONE knows John Kerry.All I hear is judgement, on everyones part. It doesn't sit right with me.
I feel like I have worked really hard to find out what I think about the upcoming elections. What I think about issues and working with the guy who "appears" to be working in the same direction. I say "appears" because I don't think I can fully know what the truth is. Everyone has an agenda. Everyone wants to PUT DOWN the other person, and honestly that turns me off!! People who are hell bent on shoving the other guys face in the mud. I am simply not down for that.
I will vote on November 2nd because there were a ton of folks who fought and died to give me the right to have a say.But I refuse to say nasty things about people because I think I know what the truth is. It's ridiculous to me.
It sure seems like a lot of people get cancer. Man, I don't want to get cancer.

Just when you thought it was over for sure...................TA DA!!
I know, I know it's been awhile but seriously folks it's been crazy.
Okay, my hair is grown out pretty long, it's startin' to really bug me but I gotta keep it long for the wedding, so someone can do something with it. After the wedding I am cutting it short again, probably some funky hair doo that makes me look 10 years younger!
Justin got a job!!! HIP HIP HOORAY!!! He is working for the Recording Academy (aka the GRAMMY's, you know the big awards show) but in the non-profit section. He is officially the Project Manager for the Education Programs. Which I think means that he takes care of sending out the Grammy bands to different schools to educate on music and stuff. Tight right? So far he likes it. It is in Santa Monica, so right now he has quite a commute. We are looking for a place right now that will cut his time to work in half........we'll see what happens.
I am loving my job although I really hate it when people do not call you back or email you back. I mean at least have the courtesy to call me back and say, Na we are not interested. JEEZ people!
Justins brother and sister-in-law had their baby girl. Her name is Eirlin Enid Souza. I really like it. She was 7lbs and she is totally cute. She is actually quite unique looking. Her mom is Scottish and her dad is Portuguese, which makes for a killer looking baby.
My friend Ryan is in Africa for a year. I got a postcard from him. Sometimes I will be driving and I will think......wow, I am driving and Ryan is in Africa. Jealous!
Next year is my ten year high school reunion. Boy, won't that be hilarious! good lord!
I am reading Jane Eyre right now.
I have been listening to these sermons by Alistar Begg. Man, he is an amazing preacher. (www.truthforlife.org)
Um, what else. I did this Power Yoga class on Tuesday Night and seriously my abs are still sore today.
In other news, I do believe it's been over 2 weeks since I ate my last veggetable. Seriously!
Okay, well there you have it. A post.
