Where have I been??

Man, it's been a while!!! Sad to say I can't even say I've been that busy, but I have been doing a bunch of stuff around here lately! Well I had a fabulous Thanksgiving with my family and my soon-to-be family! Jimmy and I are so lucky to have so many good people in our lives, we're very blessed! And it was my first day up and walking, and it wasn't bad! So because I survived the day, Jimmy and I decided to tackle BLACK FRIDAY. Crazy right?! But I did great. We did great. Got in and got out and got our stuff done!

So since then, I have still been recovering from my surgery and I started physical therapy last week, and I am doing quite well! I am due to return back to work on January 1st--starting off the new year in good health! Speaking of good health, I found out that my thyroid disorder is back again. Yeah, if you know anything about thyroid disease you know that it affects EVERYTHING! But one thing that it is not supposed to do is come and go as it pleases! It's a disorder you deal with for the rest of your life, you take a pill every day to keep your level normal. The normal level is a 4 and I found out I am at 13!! So I'm back on medication. I feel like I'm feeling better already but I know it takes like a week to get into my system. I'm going to feel so much better! Oh and the BIG plus, once my thyroid level is normal then I will be a little fertile myrtle! LOL YAhhoooooo!

So my last post I was talking about painting and decorating our spare bedrooms. Well, it's a work in progress but we came to some agreements! We kept the pink room as a guest bedroom, we toned down the pink a little by painting some brown on the bottom part of the wall. It looks really good if I say so myself! LOL It's still a little girly but I didn't feel right about painting over the cherry blossom trees so any men that sleep in that room(which NEVER happens!) just need to zip it! And as for the red room, we decided to turn that into the nursery for our future sweet bundle of joy. It's green! Color: Kiwi Splash (Shade in between colors Kawasaki green and John Deere green--a simple agreement for us LOL) I love it! I plan to paint the walls green and accent some blue, yellow, and turquoise. It's going to be neutral for whichever little Cotter comes first. But I am REALLY (and so is Jimmy!) hoping for a boy! So anyways, enough about babies...I'm just working on getting settled now, with painting, hanging pictures, buying throw blankets, decorating for Christmas, lighting candles, and buying new furniture. And it makes a HUUUUGE difference!! It feels like home<3

So, our wedding is in 123 days! We put the deposit down for the venue and my MOH ordered her dress, now I just have to get my bridesmaids sized and get their dresses ordered, we need to work on the guest list, send out invitations, rent a DJ and send the boys off for the tux's....probably other things i've forgotten..but that seems to be the big decisions right now! I need to get it together here! LOL

Anyways, that's a little of what has been going on around here. I need to work on my Christmas craft, cuz Christmas is in 11 days!!! O.M.G.!!
