Happy Cinco De Mayo

Hubby got me up this morning...had a great workout!  I'm showered, clean, and happy and it's only 10:45!!  I am feeling good today!  No more funk---I am going to be productive today, get my reading done and get my study notes together so I can study for my final tomorrow at the Cafe down the street.  I love studying there, it's quiet but not too quiet and they have these wonderfully large tables that are perfect to spread out all my study stuff.  I have a review session tonight and we're making burritos for Cinco de Mayo with fresh guacamole.  Yummy.  and pina coladas san alcohol:)  My dog's request is a short walk, hopefully I will be able to fulfill that for him today--he's got a serious case of cabin fever.  I think it's spring here. The sun's been shining for the last two days.  Oh and my flowers are starting to bloom finally.  sorry for being a bit random....on reproductive news....I have 10 more days on bcps...yay!  and then I get to go off for a week and then I'm on them until we officially start meds!...YIKES!!!  But before that**********************************************
our 8th anniversary weekend has been set for the 13 and 14th of May!! (Our anniversary is May 18..but that's a Wednesday and hubby will be gone, and I'll probably have AF...soo)   We're going to this super cute Bed and Breakfast near Coeur D'Alene, ID.  We're also going to splurge a bit and we're set up for massages at the resort in downtown (an awesome Christmas present from the in-laws we've been saving for just the right time)!!! We are both super excited!  Hubby has a business trip the following week and then Memorial weekend we'll be in Boise!  Time is flying!  In other news, classes are wrapping up this week; one final on Saturday and I should be completely finished by Sunday afternoon.  Sunday night, we plan to splurge and go the pub...hmmm....I wonder if I can get a virgin sex on the beach :)  The possibilities are endless!!  Happy Cinco de Mayo!
