October Goal

I had a goal in October to complete 25 of my thank you cards. I have not completed a single one!

I guess I do have 3 nights left, but tonight and Wednesday are booked. Anyone want to come do Thank You cards with me on Tuesday?

Preview of Nov goals... I would like to

  1. Do another 25 thank you notes
  2. Print up Halloween Pictures from past years and make a Halloween photo album.
  3. Take wedding prints and put them in my CM Photo Album. Do a bit of scrapbooking to make it all look nice.
  4. Help Brandon to make our wedding books online.

Harry Potter Quiz (no spoilers)

Harry Potter Character Combatibility Test
You scored as a Luna Lovegood
You are Luna Lovegood. You daydream and often seem to be drifting off into your own world. You have very strong opinions that many agree are not logical. You place a lot of faith in these beliefs. Possibly, you see more than what meets the eye. You are very accepting of others. You may have only a few close friends because you refuse to sacrifice your opinions and true self for social graces.

I answered a Tiebreaker Question to decide between Luna and Hermione..

Luna Lovegood


Hermione Granger


Bellatrix Lestrange


Sirius Black


Ron Weasley


Oliver Wood


Harry Potter


Remus Lupin


Albus Dumbledore


Percy Weasley


Neville Longbottom


Draco Malfoy


Lord Voldemort


Severus Snape

To sum up.

Description of my last 10 years...

Went to UND right after HS, started out in Mechanical Engineering.
Failed a few classes and switched majors to Computer Science. Did a couple of internships with Unisys a computer company in Minneapolis.
Met my Fiance in Spring of 2001, started dating by April. He moved to Rochester MN in the fall taking a job with IBM. Graduated in December and after a few months of job searching in Grand Forks decicded to bite the bullet and move in with him here :)
After nearly a year of job searching ( a dark sucky time in my life) I got a job at IBM as well, but just as a contractor, so the pay is not quite as well, but its a job. Been doing that ever since.
Brandon and I bought a house together and are now 1.25 months away from our wedding!

I typed this up to a friend from years past... and thought it would be a great little paragraph to share with ... well whoever knows about this blog.

Thanks Mel for sharing this article with me.

North Shore

We are here. Hotel has a computer!

The pack is heavy... but the more water I drink and the more food we eat ... the lighter it will be!

Checked in and now going foraging for food and drink... At a restaurant.

The gang is all here, all at the same time!

Wish us luck on our first big backpacking adventure

Adam Sandler sang a song in the wedding singer about "I want to be the man to grow old with you... " Very cute AND we are thinking of having it featured in our wedding.
