....sike! But this DOES get sung around the house ohhhh almost every day.... :) Eric Fisher Academy = AMAZING! I have loved every minute so far! Well except all the safety and chemical lectures....BUT...I am a week away from the salon floor and have made it through these last 10 weeks! SOOO many tests! I don't even remember studying this much in college! Every 10 weeks you get placed in a new phase and this is my last week in the first phase, so a week from this Tuesday, I will be taking clients! YAY! We have learned SO much and I am ready to put it to use for sure. Just a few quick updates are:

...again! Chance and I both agreed to not do Valentine's day celebrations since I did the office for us, but when I came home from school on the 14th, Chance had a little surprise for me:) He got me this HUGE hot pink froggy to snuggle with, chocolates, and flowers. I love that he understands it's the small things that make my heart so happy. He also got us balcony seats for the movie "The Vow" at the Warren, which is super special, because you sit in this special balcony part with huge heated loveseats and servers come get your order for popcorn, pop, candy, or actual food with a press of a button at your seat. Fancy, right?! :) He also got me two love movies that had the actors in them that are in "The Vow" so that I could "get my fix" of them until the movie the next day. So he got one movie with Channing Tatum and one with Rachel McAdams. HA! It was pretty cute. Look at the set up he had!
Chance and I decided that since I started school on the 13th, we would cram birthday AND Valentine's Day into the couple weeks before school. Here's the breakdown: First weekend in February, Chance's parents came to Wichita and took Chance and me to the casino! They enjoy getting away from the business and we enjoy seeing them! It was a blast. We went to Old Chicago for some pizza and then headed down to the new casino in Mulvane. It seems strange to say that we like going there. Not in a "trashy-waste-money" sort of way, we have only been twice...but we like to go when we actually have a little extra money. Usually we just take what we would for a normal date and when it's gone, it's gone....so no worries all of you worriers about finances! We stick to our guns:) Anyway, long story short, Chance and I both won the exact same amount of money! I mean, I TOLD him to sit down at a certain slot machine and he DID win on the one I told him to play on...but I guess he still can call it "his win." ;) I was feeling down about him winning more than me (we are a little too competitive) and I decided before we left I'd sit down at a machine. Well we both won within a dollar of each other! His dad said we better leave after we both won the same so we wouldn't fight or lose it! Haha! It was a huge success and I think the casino knew it was my fake birthday because we all walked away happy. Chance's parents stayed overnight at a nearby hotel and we went out to to eat at a yummy mexican place for dinner. We were hoping to go out somewhere that night, but we were all SO EXHAUSTED we all went to bed! Yikes....I guess 24 is feeling older than I expected. Casino night=awesome!

Well we celebrated Vday a little early this year. Mostly because hair school starts on the 13th and I don't want to be cramming a holiday into my first week of school. Also because my birthday is on the 18th and is NOT to be combined with Valentine's celebrations:) I'm a little greedy when it comes to my birthday and I suppose I married the right man because he loves birthdays too! Anyway, I kept telling Chance that he was not allowed to get me anything for Vday, because I was spending extra $ to get him a bigger gift that also sort of benefited me, so he obliged. I had to throw out lots of hints to throw him off course, because he secretly likes to try to guess what the gift is and ruin it for me...so I didn't want any close guesses. We have a two bedroom apartment, and the 2nd bedroom has just been sort of where we put his video games and the dog kennels. We always talked about it being an office for him, but never had the time or energy. Well since I quit my job, guess who has time and energy! I told him I was going to keep his gift in my closet but that it was too big to fit so that's how I kept him out the 2nd bedroom while I plotted my room. I love love love to shop around... and my bestie Erin, thankfully, loves to shop around as well. She's super mom, because she totes her baby girl around with us and lets her walk around the store and shop with us all while talking to me about our personal lives in the middle of TJ Maxx, and can see an awesome lamp or frame from a mile away (often even on clearance!)...all this at the same time. Awesome best friend, right? So since she works part time, we had some days to spend with each other roaming around to hobby lobby, tj, world market, target, etc. looking for the perfect items for my room. It all started with these pillows: they were the perfect colors for his office...not too girly, but not too man cave-ish, and warm and homey feeling to me.
