Moon Under Stars Over Me

Finished the Soprano's last night. Now, I know everyone knows that Adriana dies, because she said so in press junkets last year for that stupid new Joey show she is on. So near the end I was of course expecting this. But when it finally happened. Oy! It was horrible! I keep thinking they will somehow bring her back, but I know that they do not come back. Maybe she will be in some dream sequence next season?

I must admit I don't really like how this season ended. It felt anticlimactic. To me it felt like they ran out of time so they rushed to close things, or else they just got lazy. I have not decided yet. Let me marinate on it for a bit.

In random household happenings:
I heard my garden* is attracting a hummingbird this year! I didn't know they came into the city! My mission this weekend it to buy a hummingbird feeder.
It must be pretty enough for me to be OK with it hanging in my garden, but ugly/cheap enough for me to be OK with it when someone either vandalizes it or steals it. (You would be amazed at the random crap people steal out of my garden*)
I no longer grow sunflowers because whenever they get all cute and little someone always comes by and picks them.
I have a plastic birdbath that I buried the base and covered it in rocks. Even then people have tried to pull it up and take it. Truly ridiculous. I just don't get it.

*My "garden" is a small plot of dirt that is about 8x12 feet under our apartment window. Before I started planting in it a few years back, it was just an ugly patch of dirt where people would often times throw trash. I have put a lot of time and money into making it look pretty, that is why it blows my mind that people would try to ruin that. You don't get a lot of nature in the city, why mess with it when it is there?

If you're bored you're boring.

The new Sopranos came out on DVD this week, so of course my darling husband and I have been having a marathon viewing of them.
God I love that show! It seriously makes me want to pig out on really good Italian food after watching it though. My brother-in-law gave me a really cool Wiseguy cookbook for Christmas, so I may be forced to make up a big Italian spread from the book before we settle in for the season finale. We are on episode #10 right now. I had to work today so I could not stay up any longer to keep going.
I would love to be a mobster if it were not for all of the shooting and stuff.

It hit me last night just how much I am going to miss Jon when he leave to go on tour next month. We only have another month before he goes away for the summer. He says not to worry and the time will go quickly. I am being a tough cookie about it, but it will be hard.
I know, I know, I am being dramatic. I am sure I will enjoy having some time to myself, but I will miss cuddles and DVD watching marathons so much!

This weekend I have major slumber party plans. We are FINALLY going to celebrate our beloved Licia's birthday. It is a little belated because she was out of the country on the actual day, but now we will celebrate!
I am trying to decide if I will wear my beloved Powerpuff Girl PJ's or if I will go buy some new ones for the event. I am also seriously considering some fluffy slippers. Maybe in leopard print?
We are doing a full on slumber party; a bunch of girls, facials, 80's Brat Pack movies, PJ's, blended drinks, maybe even a pillow fight! Oh and most importantly, no boys! :-) I can hardly wait!

It is perfect and sunny out today, so I am finding myself very distracted.
I love this city so much! I walked to work just to take in it's beauty. The people here are wonderful, and the little community is amazing. It really is a big city with a small town feel. I have never met anyone who has been here who hates this city. I don't know that I would want to meet one of those people as I can't imagine they would be at all that interesting.

Well, I suppose I should get back to work.

Aww... my hubby stars in an E-card!
Check it out:

Happy 11 month wedding anniversary to us!

Jon and I were talking and decided that we want to throw a 1 year anniversary party.
It is so crazy to think we have been married 11 months now! It seems like we just got married.

It is true what they say about the first year, I swear it took the first six months just to get settled in to this whole new life thing. Nothing too dramatic, just trying to figure out where everything goes and who cleans what.

Now I can only describe life as a second honeymoon. We are getting along famously and things are really going quite well. I can't imagine life without him. Married life is a lot better than just cohabitation or dating as far as I am concerned. I have lived with a few boyfriends in the past, and I never had the same sense of togetherness/love as I have now that I am the other half of a married couple. I am sure it has a lot to do with the fact it is with the right person as well. He is completely trustworthy and wonderful. I am often times overcome with a giddy joy knowing that we get to grow old together and experience so many of life's little adventures together.


Back to the party. Not sure if I will do a small dinner party at our place or try to rent out a place or maybe try to convince one of my friends with a bigger place to allow us to host it there. It is the perfect time as it is only days before Jon goes on tour, so it will be an anniversary party as well as a bit of a going away for a while party!

Been looking into restaurants around town as well trying to find a good place. If anyone has any ideas let me know!

I almost considered talking to The Sunset and getting them to let me book a night and doing it there (since that is where we had our reception), but I am thinking it might be fun to do something a little fancier. But who knows!

so many ideas, so little time...

Oh and speaking of anniversaries- 10/19/05 will be 10 years from the day we first met! crazy!
