Busy Life!!!

Its been so long since I have blogged. I just have not had the time to do so. Sorry Terri!!! :) Well, things have been great around the Kellett house the last couple of weeks. I was so happy to get my house cleaned on Friday. I know its sounds funny but I just cant be happy if my house is not mopped, dusted, basically head-to-toe clean. Well after two weeks I finally was able to complete my task. We had a good weekend this week. Also I only had to work 3 days this week and that is always a plus. Friday Drew did not have to work so we had to go to Grenville so Drew's grandpa could take some x-rays of my teeth (he is an orthodontist). He is retired and sold his practice but he still sees family once a month. Well, good news is I only have 2 molars that need to be removed. But who has the time to get this done. This might have to wait till next year. Bad news was he said I probably need braces. WHAT!!! I have never had braces and now at 24 I do not want them. There not terrible but he thinks my bottom teeth will get worse in the future. He was ready to set the date for them. But I don't think I'm ready. I have two weddings I'm in next year and I don't want to see those pictures the rest of my life with a mouth full of braces. I guess that will be one of my next year projects too. I need to get them done soon while he is still working and its free.

Friday night we went to dinner at Brix in Grenville with my bestest Lisa and her John. We have not hung out with them in weeks. It was so great seeing them and spending time with them. Congrats to them for buying there first house. It is so cute!!

Saturday was a work day. It wasn't too bad. I'm dreading this Saturday when I work from 7pm to 7am and I have to stay up so we can teach SS. I better sleep all day on Saturday. Its also Drew's birthday Sunday. He will be 26!!!!

On Sunday we went to big church and then our SS. Afterwards we ate lunch with our care group at Shoguns. I'm not a fan of Shoguns at all. It was really expensive and not good at all. I would much rather go to Kanpai or Myabis. Anyway, we came back home and I took a nap while Drew watched football. My brother Nathan and his girlfriend came over and they cooked for us and it was so good. Well, actually it was Breann who did all the cooking. I just love her to death and I hope that they end up together. We then watched a scary movie. It was The Hills Have Eyes. DON'T WATCH IT. It was horrible. Very disturbing and very unrealistic. It was just fun spending time with them. We tend to do a lot of that with them. Last weekend they stayed with us all weekend and we did nothing but go out to eat. Which brings me to this. I am starting to eat healthier. Not really a diet but just eating better and exercising. Drew and I have decided this together. I hope we can stick to it. For some reason as soon as we got married I guess I thought I could just eat whatever and well I did. I hope I can stick with it.

This week I'm stuck writing a paper. Anyone want to right it for me?:) I'm just so ready for school to be over with. I also probably wont be starting will next spring at Clemson now. I went to my counselor there and she told my two more classes I needed that she didn't tell me before. Very frustrating especially since I cant go full time to school and work. I'm ready for this dream to be over with.

I'm so excited about this weather. We accidentally left our air on last night and it was freezing when I woke up this morning. It was 65 degrees in our house. I'm ready for the holidays coming up.

I do have a prayer request and a praise. My dad just got a new and better job that he starts in 3 weeks. My dad has always worked 60+ hours a week. That is what a general manager for a restaurant has to work. Well, needless to say all of our life he has always had to work on Sundays. This new job he get paid more and works less (he might go crazy though). He also has Sundays off. My mom is so excited. They will be in search for a church and I'm hoping they will join us. Just pray for my dads transition into this completely new field and that they find a church that they enjoy.

Have a great week. Especially you my Terri!!!

Another Weekend GONE

Well, Its sunday night and the weekend is gone. Lukily I did not have to work. Friday I slept until like 5pm. Of course, I worked a 12 hour shift the night before and didnt get home until 8am. It was a very slow night. I also got to work with one of my favorites making the night go by fast. Needless to say I was wide awake to do something friday night. Drew and I went to Wild Wings and then meet my cuz and her husband and baby for dinner. I love wings!!! I actually started getting tired again. I couldnt believe it. I hate when I have to work nights. It just screws up my whole schedule. We had lots of fun with them and baby Brianna was just precious. After dinner we were stuffed and came back home.

On saturday Drew is coaching upward football at our church and he had a game at 11am. His team did not win AGAIN. Allthough he keeps saying how they dont take score anyway. Bless him! I was a little bummed on saturday. I was on call and Drew got to go to the Clemson game with his dad. So a whole saturday all to my lonesome self. Ok, it wasnt that bad. I actually can get more done at times when hes not around. I had so much school work to do anyway. I studied and wrote one of my papers. Yeah!!!! I cleaned some too. That night my mom came over. I hate staying by myself and needless to say something freaked me out and I had to call her. What a great mom I have didnt even have to ask her, she offered. Well my brother and his girlfriend came over to stay the night so then my mom got to go home. Finally my husband came back to me about 1am. I was relieved and finally could sleep with my hubby with me.

Sunday we got up early and went to Ingles so I could pick up the snacks for our three year old sunday school class. Man, they sure were fussy today. Drew and I were teaching them about Thou Shalt not Steal. Well I incoporated about how God wants us to share our toys. Nobody wanted to share. They were very whiny. I had one little boy though the went around with his car toy saying "Here I share, God wants me too". I was so amazed he actually listened to what I said. Drew and I are very happy we started doing this. My husband is also going crazy wanting a child of his own. Our whole grownup sunday school class have kids. Speaking of our own Sunday School class we have something called focus on the family every week where a couple stand in front of everyone and tell about themselves. Our groups has gotten so big its hard to meet everyone. Well today was our day. Needless to say everyone and their momma decided to come. It wasnt too bad. Drew very funny and make me feel at ease. After church we went to target and then Pizza Inn. Came home both took a nap. We then went to see the house hes building. I absolutley love it and I want to live in it :( Its still just being framed so it has a while to go. We went to brewsters and got me a bannana split, went to publix to get some things and came back home.

The weekend goes by so fast. Coming up out of 9 days I have 1 day off :( I dont know how that happened. Not looking forward to it but good money anyway. Please keep us in your prayers for my being stressed out with work and trying to do this school thing again. Also with Drew and his first house his building. He has allready had to fire some people. Please pray we find a buyer for it sooner rather than later.

Oh I just wanted to brag on my hubby real quick. Last wednesday when I go off of work I came home to fall decor in my yard. He had bought two pumpkins and placed in front of our bradford pear and planted orange and white pansies. Also when I walked in no light but candles were lit all through the house. He cooked steaks and crabcakes from the fresh market along with getting some of my fav desserts from there. It was very sweet and romantic and we really needed that.

Have a great week!
