Costa Rica, Here We Come!

Hey there folks,

Today we start our amazing journey down to Costa Rica for 10 days! Both BonnieJean and I have never been there before and as we wait (approx. 21 hours before take-off) with excitement and anticipation, there's no telling what adventures we will embark on. For those of you that are not familiar with Costa Rica here is a picture:

Pretty exciting stuff huh? More specifically we will be located just North of San Jose at the Robleato Bible Home. We will have pictures and stories to tell when we get back so until next time...

A little bit about US, by BonnieJean

Hello. Second post of the day, but I just gotta do it again. My name is BonnieJean and I am 20 something years old. I am a daughter, sister, friend, fiance, roommate, student teacher, and lover of all things of the future. I am obsessed with the future, and planning it. I love looking at blogs, websites, and anything to do with home decorating, babies and families, weddings, DIY things, etc. Isaac and I are currently planning our wedding. More like I am slightly obsessing and he is keeping me calm and is just great at making decisions and helping me make our dreams come true :]

Isaac and I met in high school. (here we are sophomore year of highschool)

He proposed last May

and we are getting married July, 24th, 2010.

You can checkout our wedding website @

In the meantime, we are finishing up school at Western Washington University, in Bellingham WA. We are both Education majors, and after the wedding we will be student teaching back home in Tacoma. We are super excited to go home, but very sad to leave beautiful Bellingham.

I for one am having a tough time imagining leaving. For one reason in particular, I will no longer be living with my bestest friend, Meg.

She is a pretty amazing woman. You will probably hear lots about here if you stick around. We also met in high school, about the same time I met Isaac. After high school we were roommates in the dorms freshman year, and have lived together now for almost four years!! She will still be living in Bellingham next year, therefore I will be in Bellingham a heck of a lot next year too :]

For me, this blog is going to be a way for others (i.e. family, friends, followers) to keep up on what the Thomas' (my gosh!!!) are up to! Also, this will be a place for me to save bunches of my thoughts and ideas about futuristic "stuff". The way I see it, I can have all the ripped out magazine pictures and saved online clips I can find, but if I can't find them when I need them, what's the point?? So here it goes!!

Love, BonnieJean

First Post- Yay for finished finals!

YAHOO!! BonnieJean finished her LAST Winter Quarter finals week ever! (unless of course she goes back to school at some point... yuck.) Don't get me wrong, I love school and learning, but I HATE finals and being stressed. Isaac is currently in his final final of his second to last Winter Quarter (he has one extra quarter of student teaching after BonnieJean is done (big bummer)). In a few hours we are BOTH done and then after a few days of rest (yeah right) we are off to COSTA RICA!! :) Along with 23 other college students, we are going to be serving this Spring Break at the Robelalto Bible Home. We are super excited about this opportunity that God as provided for us to serve others, and cannot wait to work with the amazing 23 people who we will be joining!

We will post pictures and share more about our trip once we return on Monday, March 29th (hopefully! we heard that flights out of Costa Rica are canceled often, and if this happens we will be missing our first day of classes for next quarter.. ah oh..)

Have a great day!! Hope your lives are being filled with happiness! :)
