My 26th Birthday and News

I apologize for not updating this recently.  As we all know life gets busy and hectic.   Jason had the opportunity to apply for a potential job in Washington D.C. for upcoming master's degree graduates.  He took a weird test and they told us the results last night. Unfortunately, they were not the results we wanted but we know the Lord has plans for us elsewhere.  We are both scheduled to graduate in May 2012 and we are pretty excited to see what life has planned for us.

I turned 26 on October 19th.  It was a great day, I went to school and had to take a test but I did well on it.  I also had to go to work with my preschoolers.  They all sang Happy Birthday and kept saying it all day.  The night before Jason had decorated the apartment and bought me roses. He is such a great sweet husband.  We  went to eat dinner at Olive Garden and played mini gold in the mall.  It is a glow in the dark mini golf course.  It was fun.  Jason also made me cake and bought me a GPS.  My mom got me a massage and a Kohl's gift card.  My sister gave me some money and Rafa got me a gift card to Olive Garden.  My mother in law got me some new shoes and so it was a great day.  Then my awesome visiting teacher and dear friend brought me some cute little desserts. Here is a picture of them, they were cute and yummy.

Predators Preseason Hockey Game

If you know us you know we love sports.  Jason found a coupon for free tickets, minus the five dollar processing fee to a preseason Nashville predators hockey game.  We were so excited.  I never liked hockey till I meet Jason but it is so fun.  Our tickets were in the lower level behind the goal and it was a fun game.  We of course won.  The Nashville Predators seem to be doing very good in preseason.  We always have fun times at these games.  If your in Nashville you should come during hockey season, it is always so fun. At the end of the game we took pictures by the ice.

The Flood of September 15

I woke up this morning to water on the floor in the bathroom vanity.  Apparently, we had a leak in our apartment.  Jason and I cleaned it up and then found out it was also in the kitchen.  We called the apartment office and they said they would send someone over. I stepped outside and found out the apartment kiddie corner of us on the top floor had their water heater burst last night and the water had seeped through the walls and floors.  
Our kitchen walls

Our light bulb and fan in our bathroom, copper was coming into it

Luckily, we were lucky.  It was just funny watching water come from the ceilings and walls.  It was a big mess, the neighbors had to have fans in their apartments to dry it out and then we had to spray it to kill the mold that would be forming.  Here are some pictures to show ya the damage to our apartment.
