So basically what has happened this month is a little bit of moving. I moved out of Christine's apt and into Chris and his family's house. Which was a scary step for me. I didn't want to be that girl that moves in with her boyfriend's family. Plus a big step for our relationship. But I've felt welcome and mostly unawkward... things get better by the week. And we're going to paint our room and then it'll be awesome. Even got my own house key.
Labor Day weekend we went to the Orange Street Fair and make a quick round and grabbed some good eats and then had to go to work. Work, work, work.... of course.
We also got tickets from the TEAM Center to The Big Picture - AFI's Great American Movie Quiz and the host was Alex Trebek! It was at the Hollywood Bowl so we bussed in from Lakewood and had pretty decent seats and sat next to some interesting characters. It was basically a multiple choice quiz thing and we got light up sticks to answer the questions. We had a good time.
September is full of many birthdays so we have been all over the place out and about celebrating with our friends. The most important birthdays in September include my Dad and my Ashley :) So the again saddest part about not living in Nor Cal is being away from the people that mean so much to me. I was able to get them each a little something.
Miranda sent me her Freshman Year photo..... le sigh.... Freshman... I can't believe she's in high school.
I've been attempting to get back into scrapbooking... it really makes me happy so it feels good to be doing it again and I'm actually in a place where I can bring out all my supplies and go to town. Made a couple of things already but still don't have everything from the apartment here so I have yet to unleash the full power. Don't have a picture of the thing that I made for Chris' nephew though.
So as you can see...this is what I made for me and Chris. This month and also Ashley's birthday is our official 1 year anniversary. I have kept majority of our ticket stubs and brochures and little keepsakes from things that we've gone to in our year and a half together. (Sept 17th is when we became 'official') Time really has flown with us and I couldn't be happier. We went out to dinner and were on opposite schedules so we didn't have There was also a party at our friend Crystal's house and we had a bunch of Kickball people plus Disney people and a bounce house! It was an awesome party :)

Decided it was time to delete Myspace and all it's crazy emotions that were attached to it. Found the email from Ryan and read it one last time and then I was done. Also was going through all my old hotmail emails and found some old crazy stuff. I felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders. It was nice.
I'm looking back into getting my motorcycle license again... scared but excited. Just need to raise the funds for the class.
I had my Lead interview on a very bad day but rocked it anyway and soon the results will be posted.
Dang I haven't written anything Kickball have I? Well, we were on a kickball team and def in for the next season. We placed last but we had a really good time. www.kickball.com
Chris has been getting ready for the MS 150 ride next month and I'm excited to be the pit crew again this year and our friend Julius is going to be riding with him too :)
It's the 'off season' at Disney and that means banquets and parties. We've already attended the Space Party which was up on the Concourse and next is coming up the Star Tours Banquet at John's Incredible Pizza, the Nemo Banquet at the OC Sports Bar and Grill and the Autopia Banquet. We're still deciding on what the Auto Banquet will be.
Amanda brought Lily to Disneyland for her 6th birthday and I got to spend the evening with them and had a really good time
So yeah... plus I've been in super plan mode for Chris' bday next month. Got most things purchased and ready but still want to get a couple of more things. He reads this, so no more details about that :D
Anyhoo.... time to get ready for work. Look at all that... thought I didn't want to write and go on rambling for like an hour.
