Summer vacation is here at last! School is out and I can finally focus my attention on the fun list of to-do’s: finish wedding projects, write thank yous, run!, get a tan, ride my bike to st. charles, dream about our house, read!, endless pinning, and finally start making some money again.

Of course it wasn’t easy going back to school, but I was able to master the art of procrastination while at the same time acing my classes. And I don’t mean to brag or anything, (yeah right, that’s exactly what I’m doing) but I did receive this email from one of my professors after finishing the course:

 

“I have chosen six of you from this class to send an email to regarding my appreciation for the effort that you put forth in this past semester. It was my first semester teaching, and as such I am aware that I could have done things better and could have made the learning environment a bit more interactive and exciting. Despite that, the six of you demonstrated exceptional knowledge of the content provided in class and excelled throughout the semester on quizzes, exams, and papers. I know that the application process to the program is continuously changing and I do not know how many references or recommendations the selection committee requests of you upon application. Anyway, if for any reason you would like to write me in as a reference or would like to have me write you a letter of recommendation, based solely on your obvious knowledge, perparedness, reliability, and participation in this course, I would be happy to do that. Thank you again for your effort this semester, have a good summer, and good luck in your OT futures.”


Needless to say, I survived my first semester at SVSU and plan to return in the fall. Until then, I plan to appreciate every ounce of free time I get. I will relax and enjoy all the exciting things happening this summer, starting with a weekend on Walloon Lake with my favorite Iowan. That is of course, once I finish writing at least half of my thank-yous!

Much Love,
Melanie

Yes, we realize we are nerds, but this is too exciting not to share. Our house is finally listed as “Under Contract” on the Michigan Board of Realtors website!! That’s right all you house hunters, you missed out on this fabulous find!

We don’t expect anyone else to find this as exciting as we do, so we apologize for such a pointless post today.

Much Love,

We spent a beautiful weekend in Madison Heights at Adam’s parent’s house! His sister, Melissa, was home from Virginia, and it was great seeing her!

We arrived on Friday, and headed straight for Logan’s Roadhouse. After that, a lovely night of addressing invitations and drinking Italian wine ensued. Melissa also came bearing many gifts, both from Italy and for our birthdays! Italian wine, a shot glass, FlipIn Cornhole, and  a honeymoon fund jar that counts our money! Thank you Melissa!!

Saturday was a great day! We had our second Bridal Shower, and this time, Adam had to be there, as well as the groomsmen and the dads. It was great having most of the bridal party together one time before the wedding (We missed you Steve!) We also got a lot of great gifts and are so thankful for all of them! It was great seeing family and friends we don’t get to see often, and the open bar was pretty nice too! We even had a personal gift opener, our flower girl Jamie, so we hardly had to do any work.

After the shower, we headed back to the Muszynski’s for more food and spirits, and ended the night at Chili’s.

Sunday came and went too quickly, we finished addressing wedding invites and relaxed the rest of the evening. Melanie has learned to procrastinate school work once again. One more week of classes, a paper, and two finals to go, but hey… homework is for the weekdays right?

We hope everyone had a fabulous weekend as well! Can’t wait to post more pictures from the shower!

Much Love,
Adam & Melanie

We are veryyyy excited to announce, we almost have a house! Yes, we realize we already said that once, but now it’s official. Or at least as official as it can be at this point! All of the details with the inspection have been ironed out… finally… and we are almost ready to move in!

The appraisal has been paid, the bank has everything they need, and now we wait for closing. If all goes as planned, closing will be July 16th (or before… hopefully before!) and we will have the keys in our hands on July 26th!

Until then, we dream of all the fun things we want to do to the house… eventually! Adam is thinking new garage door, stove, new driveway, and shelving in the basement, you know… the practical stuff. Melanie on the other hand is thinking paint colors, craft area, and a mud room. She has also been searching on pinterest for a way to fake a mantle, since the DVD shelving is NOT going to cut it anymore.

We are also thinking brick patio with a fire pit, nice garden, fence, and an air conditioner, but those are all things that will have to wait until at least next summer.

Okay, okay! Here is another picture of the house, taken during inspection. That’s right, we didn’t need to creepily drive by to get this one!

 

Have we mentioned we are beyond ecstatic for this place?!

Happy Hump Day!!

Much Love,
Adam & Melanie
