Costa Rica!!!!

so, we did it. :) We've talked about going on a trip ever since we got married, but either didn't have the funds, or the time. We finally got all our ducks in a row, and took the plunge. :) It was so much fun! I loved spending time with Quent, just relaxing, enjoying the sunshine, and not worrying about work, school, anything at all. :) The weather was hot and humid, the water was the perfect temperature, and the wildlife was enchanting! Of course, I got sunburnt the first day, but I got it under control so it didn't ruin my week. :) We took 2 tours, one on Wednesday and the other Friday. Wednesday included horseback riding (which made my mom a little nervous), zip-lining (which I didn't do), and a nice dip in the pool. :) Quenton loved zip-lining! Even if I wasn't pregnant, I don't think I could do it! The horseback riding was fun! I had the oldest horse, who was the slowest horse. His name is Sonto, and he was my favorite! The whole day was great. It was a little exhausting, but worth it. Friday was spent beach hopping and just being relaxed. :) I'll put up pictures soon. :) Now we both feel satisfied that we don't need to take a huge trip for a while, which is good since we probably won't be able to after baby comes!
It's nice to be home and trying to get back into a routine (not that I had too much of one before), but going back to work, studying for exams, and being with the dogs has helped us adjust back. Life is good! Now that we have this trip behind us we can focus on Wendy's wedding, camping with family, and getting things ready for baby! Everything is quickly moving along, and before we know it, October will be here and life won't be the same!

well, I guess we've been pretty busy lately. :) I had my convocation from college last Friday, which was so fun! Yes, the weather was pretty crappy, but I didn't care. I had my hubby, great friends, and mom and dad with me, so nothing could have dampened my spirits! I should say, however, that I'm not finished with my program yet. I finish September 24th, but I still feel like a graduate! :) I love this program!
We also just booked our trip to Costa Rica!! We fly out on my birthday and arrive home on the 20th. We went shopping today to get somefun summer clothes (I needed to be able to cover this belly of mine!) and we were successful! I cannot wait to go on a trip with Quenton. No distractions, no work, no school, no dogs ;), just sun, sand, and my true love. :) A lady today at the maternity store said that people who take a trip before their baby is born are taking a "babymoon" (which is fine with me, since we didn't really take a honeymoon) :). How fun! Neither of us have ever been to somewhere tropical, so this will be a fun holiday.
Then, next month I'm going to Vegas. :) I know, am I ever going to just stay here? Maybe.... :) I'm going to a Deaf Expo for the experience and the exposure. It will look great in my portfolio, and I get to sign all the time! :)
The dogs are doing well, we're SLOWLY getting things organized here, and time is flying by. Life has been hectic, but in a good way. :)
