Another reason I am excited for Christmas is because it is our first Christmas as a married couple :) Although we haven't put our Christmas tree up or decorated our new home for the season, we are excited to do so and plan on starting this Saturday. To help celebrate the holidays, we are going to send out our first Christmas card and we decided to have Shutterfly help us do that. They have created some fun Christmas Card options! What I appreciate about this company is the variety of colors and designs that you can choose from. And of course, you can customize them to make a good fit with you and your loved ones! Grant and I customized ours by putting a favorite Bible verse for the Christmas season! You should try creating one yourself! Here is the link to their Christmas Cards. Can you guess which one we chose? :)
I just hope we get them mailed out to our friends and family in time for Christmas. That will be my goal after finals are over on December 15th!

After that, they served us a candlelit dinner and French Silk pie for dessert. I absolutely loved it. As I think about how amazing they are to have done that for us, I am reminded of what Jesus did for us...died for our sins so we can be reconciled to Him! Praise God!

I moved out of my Minneapolis apartment in May, but have been storing stuff there since then. Yesterday was the day I had to go and move it out of there. I got an SUV that is larger than my Corolla so that I could move the couple pieces of furniture that were still there. I totally thought that there would be a sufficient amount of room, but boy was I wrong! I forgot that I still had three, large pieces of furniture there, a TV, and A LOT of other stuff I had left there so the apartment wouldn't look bare and empty! I am sooo blessed that I had my sister there to help me pack everything and load it up. It took us three hours to do that and then Grant came over and helped us clean for the last two hours. The time ended up totaling FIVE HOURS with the three of us! Think about how long that would have taken if it was just me!
Next Tuesday is a very special day...it is my husband's birthday! He will be turning 23! I am planning a party for him on Sunday. I have not mentioned it to him yet, so I am thinking that it might be a surprise...not quite sure yet. I am going to try to work really hard to finish cleaning all of the clutter out of our apartment over the next two days. We have so many piles of things that are waiting to be returned, put in storage, or put as decor in our home! It is a great time to have people over because it will force us to hunker down and get it done! Wish me luck in this time of beautifying and organizing our home!
Any ideas to make my sweet boy's birthday get-together even more fun than it will already be??? What do you usually do at your family birthdays?
Love, Jodi :)

Friday: We have half-days at work, so I was able to go home and take a three hour nap! I have not been able to do that in a very long time, so it was much appreciated!
After my nap, my dad and I went to the Twins game and...THEY WON! It was such a great game and I always love watching them play. We have a few more games before the season is over.
After the game, my dad and I stopped over to my sister and brother-in-law's new home to see them and drop off some furniture. They are moving in SO fast. I think their home will be organized before ours and we moved in a month ago!
Saturday: Grant and I were invited over to a special breakfast made by our friend's mom, Mrs. Jacobson. It was so delicious. We had swedish pancakes, the most delicious bacon ever, and blueberry tea. This breakfast was in honor of a special guest and new friend (Ashley) that we had in Minnesota this weekend!
The afternoon was spent at the MOA on a double date :) We went on a couple rides and then ate at Bubba Gumps. The food was so good. We all shared 1 1/2 pounds of cajun shrimp. One of my new goals is to make that shrimp...someday.
Saturday evening finished up with some work at Chili's. My husband and I were able to close the restaurant together :)
Sunday: It was a very interesting morning. Grant and I played in a softball tournament that started at 8am. We had five games and all I will say is that I am very very sore today. It hurts to walk, laugh, and pretty much move. But it was a great way to start off my new exercise plan! I almost forgot...we were the champions and our reward is a jacket with our names on it (I will remind you that it is Bostrom :))
After that tournament, Grant played in ANOTHER softball tournament for men.
We finished up the night with swimming, pizza, popcorn, and a movie. So wonderful :)
I hope that all of you had an exciting weekend and I would love to hear about it. Leave a comment :)
