I can hardly believe it!  Nick and I officially have a home!  We have 760 beautiful square feet all to ourselves :) - Well as of May 18th.  The apartment is on hold in our name until we move-in on the 18th!  I don't think I could be any more excited and nervous all at the same time.  Besides living at school, I have never lived on my own and neither as Nick.  So our beautiful apartment will be our first place for both of us separate and our first place together. :)  Also, Hello?!?! Of course I CAN'T WAIT to design it!!!!  Oh my goodness, from the moment I signed the papers, my mind has been racing with design ideas for our little space. 

Yah!  I don't think I have made it clear how OCD I am!  I am an organizing and clean FREAK!  I seriously get anxiety over clutter.  I fear clutter.  I have a self-diagnosed Ataxophobia!  (Don't worry, Nick knows what he is getting himself into :)) My point... as excited I am about this beautiful apartment, I can't but help panic a little inside thinking about both of our stuff together in our 760 sq.ft. I have to tell you though, my excitement out ways this panic BY FAR, but I'm being REAL here! I would be lying if I said I didn't have any worries. 

Oh no here is comes......wordvomit!

Any woman out there must understand that the brain never stops!  My mind just races all day long, and it has got to overflow somewhere.

Life is about to get crazy all at once.  Within 1 month I will be graduating college after 5 years!  Nick will be temporarily moving to Georgia for training.  I will be moving both of our stuff from our parents homes into our apartment.  I will be starting work.  AND I will be getting married!  Maddness!    Can you imagine how all these things and everything that goes along with each thing could keep the mind going a mile a minute?  A big part of all this is, I am just so excited for everything, that I want to be thinking about it all.

In other news...we finally found out when Nick will be leaving for training and how long he will be gone.  He leaves a couple days before my graduation (May 2nd) and he will be home the end of July. 
What this means...this means that Nick will be most-likely taking a red-eye Friday night June 24th in order to make it home for our wedding on June 25th.  I have been praying everyday that he will make it home for the wedding. (:twitch:) He will then leave the following morning to head back to Georgia for another month!  The funny thing is, all is can do is laugh about all this.  It is just so funny how life works.  :) I would have it no other way.  I have a feeling I will wake up Monday morning after the wedding and think it was all a dream.  I just know it is all going to go as fast.  :/ 

I'll leave you with a picture of our future Kitchen :)  (Featuring my cute lil' Dad)
