Lots of.. NewS!

I dont update this thing as much as I would like to, So, here's a recap!

A couple weeks ago, we got this little (big) guy...
His name is Cleveland. He's our first pet together :D We got him from the Humane Society on Elizabeth, behind the firehouse. If you get a chance, stop by there. They are completely overloaded with cats, and we actually got Cleveland for no cost. He has all of his shots, and flea preventative.
Cleveland is quite the lover. When we get home from work, he will meow and meow until we pick him up, and he will give us each "kisses" on our noses. Like eskimo kisses :) We love him so much already, even though he's going to be an only child for awhile, as long as Colton doesn't get his way, anways!

Also!! I JUST got a new job! I have applied and applied for his job for since before my Surgical Tech schooling. I FINALLY got called for an interview a couple weeks ago, and got the call last week that I will start on August 22nd! I have to have 14 weeks of rigorous training to be a Collections Tech (Phlebotomist) and after that I will be doing the Mobile Blood Drives for the American Red Cross! Basically, I'll be setting up and arranging the drives, and taking the blood and putting it into the computers to send off. We couldn't be happier for this next step in our lives.

Last but not least, we, BOTH of us, are enrolled in college, again! Colton is taking Criminal Justice courses, and I am going to minor in spanish for now, and decide my next major from there. We start August 15th. Another big step in the right direction!

Our wedding photographer just got our pictures done, so I'm awaiting the CD's in the mail to post the pictures, but heres just a couple for now.

Have a good evening :D

We're back!

Well well well, I finally have a speck of time to get on here and update this thing! I've heard several people say how they really like to read up on our lives, so I figure I'll update as much as I can!

Our lives have been incredibly busy this last month. Non stop, go go go! We went on our honeymoon June 24th, and got back July 2nd. We stayed at a beautiful resort, Star Island, In Kissimmee Florida. We had such a good time... Except the rain. Every. Single. Day. We arent talking about a sprinkle for 10 minutes and it stopped... We're talking about a downpour for hours! But we still had SO much fun!
We went to Universal Studios and only got to ride 3 roller coasters, because the rain shut the park down, but the 3 we rode were pretty exciting. I'd say my favorite thing was Gatorland, where we got to see all these shows of people feeding Alligators and how crazy they are! They had some 13-14ft Gators there!

I had my friend Sarah's bridal shower today.. For those of you who weren't at our wedding reception, Josh, Sarah's boyfriend of 8.5 years, proposed to her, right in the middle of the dance floor with everyone watching. It was so cute, and definetely put a tear or two in my eye! Now, I get the honor to be a Bridesmaid in Sarah's wedding, which is fast approaching on July 30th! The bridal shower today went great, and I couldn't be happier for her and Joshua!

I also painted our dining room yesterday, So once I get everything how I want it, I'll post pictures on here :)

Here are just a few random pictures that were from our honeymoon...
