Tick, tick, tick, tick...

Only a few days left and I am free of schoolwork!

Honestly, it feels like a dream to me....I have spent so many nights studying this semester that I really cannot imagine not having to do it. But I am sooo looking forward to it!

Saturday is going to be a long day for me. I have a final from 9-12 and then 2-5, with a wedding to go to at 6! Add the fact that I will be up around 5:30, out the door by 6:30...sigh, I am not really looking forward to it at all. The wedding will be nice-once I get there. We are having Greg's niece watch the girls for us-they are so excited! Analese is especially excited since I told her that she could show Katie The Little Mermaid movie...that's all she has talked about since.
This will be the first time we have gotten a babysitter for the girls and gone out, and the first time Mara has been watched by someone other then us! I am not too worried, as she will have big sister there, and they both LOVE Katie. She is wonderful with them.

I just wish it was on a different day then my finals...I don't know how long I will be able to last! I think I'll feel better once I am there-its the stress of getting through finals, driving to Greg's parent's house (which is close to the wedding spot) and get ready and go.

Thursday night a few friends and I will be getting pedicures and I may possibly get my haircut. I am soo looking forward to de-stressing for a bit! My legs and hips have been really bothering me lately, I am so looking forward to a leg massage.

The girls and I have been been enjoying some of the wonderful weather we have been having the past few weeks. Spring is here, and I love it!

Here's a few photos of what we've been up to...once I get through Saturday, I'll have more time to update and get updated :) I feel really out of the loop lately, which has been tough. All these hormones, I guess. Have a great week everyone!

Love the new pics, Julie! I've missed reading your updates (now I know how you feel when I go months without updating my blog!), hopefully you'll find more time once things slow down a bit! Have a great time on Thursday, good for you for pampering yourself. Enjoy the evening with Greg, it will be so good for you to get out together, and it's great that you have someone that you trust and that the kids love to watch them when you're out. Can't wait to see pics, especially if you get a new "do"!

Adorable pictures! I'm glad to hear you will get a school break soon-looking forward to it myself.

Wow, it's been a loooong time since you & Greg have had a date! Enjoy it!

I laughed SO HARD at the new main photo... Mara's face is just hysterical!

I'm so excited that you're almost done with school... I can't imagine how excited you must be! It will be nice to get more updates from you. I always love hearing what you and the girls are up to.

Take care of yourself, enjoy your mini-spa day and your DATE, and good luck with finals!

There's a light at the end of your tunnel!! So excited for you to be done with finals...and to enjoy your spring and your last trimester of preggo-ness. (I'm needing pictures, by the way)
I love your new photos, too. The one where Mara is raking is too cute. She's grown up a lot, hasn't she?
Enjoy your date night with Greg, it's been a long time coming. Just enjoy being together. So glad you have someone you can trust, and the girls love, to watch them.

OMG! The new header picture is the best!! It just made my day (: I love the rest of the picutes, too! Have fun at the wedding with your hubby and really enjoy it-you deserve it after finals-good luck! Oh, and I need pictures-it hardly seems like you are pregnant this time around-I need the visual (: If not here, put them on the family site (:

I've been thinking about you, and how busy you must have been studying and finally coming to the end of school. Love seeing the girls, but I, too, miss seeing you, in any of the pictures. And I love the spring photos, as it's been hard to feel like spring here, with all this crazy weather, here. Yes, please relax, celebrate your hard work, and enjoy a night out with hubby. It's way about time for each other!

Ok, I totally suck! I have not been here in ages, and I feel like I haven't talked to you in just as long!! The girls are getting so big, and your prego belly looks so cute (love the sketch version, lol). Drop me a line and let me know when we can play!!

All the best in your finals.
