Back!

I am back home now! It's good to be back. Back to work, back to exercising, back to the real world...and back to Jason! I was only away from him for 6 days but it felt like longer. I little cheesy buuut...I'm going to marry the guy for crying out loud. I think it's a good thing that I missed him!!! ;-)

So much is happening this week. I'm moving out of my house and staying with the lovely and generous Weeks family for 10 days. Then I move into the fabulous Jeffrey's abode where I will rent a room from them until I basically get married...if not longer (details of that will come later when things are more set in stone!) Wow. It will be good when I'm all situated. This Saturday Jason and I are going to have a yard sale and I need to move the remainder of the stuff that I want to keep into a storage space. On Sat. night Jason is taking me to the Melodrama for my birthday. Yay! Yesterday was actually my birthday but by the time I got home I didn't want to do much. He showed up at my doorstep with beautiful flowers and took me out for some "Birthday Frozen Yogurt". Yummmy!

The camping trip with the fam was good...quite relaxing. I got a little sun which was nice. It's also fun to get to where my ring again. (I wasn't wearing it there). On the way home we stopped by David's Bridal. I tried on some bride's maid dresses. They were ok but nothing spectacular. I tried on one wedding dress that I liked. They didn't have the color though. All they had was the pure white and I wanted to try it on in ivory. It was very pretty. I'm not sure that I loved it though. So, it's on "The List". I'm hoping to keep local too.

I saw some of Natalie's bridesmaid dresses and really liked them. I asked her where she got them and she said that Down the Isle in AG gives you the dresses for 30% off if you buy them all together at one time. Now that is a sweet deal!!! So, hopefully we'll find something nice there. Anyways, I went by church today and finally got the Wedding Application. Jason and I will fill it out and turn it in. We are going for Feb. 7th but there is some sort of event on that day. There is a chance then that we may have to go with Jan. 31st. We'll see though. We've also talked to Ken and he has agreed to marry us. So....we're moving right along!!! :-) Or at least I keep telling myself that!

Ok, welp, hope all is well! I'm off!

most places will give you a discount on the dresses if you buy them all at once... just fyi...

Happy birthday!

doesn't it feel weird now to not have a ring on that finger?? I always get panicky when I leave the house accidentally without my rings on...

Oh Annamaria - I'm SO glad you're back in blog-town! :-) Crazy how dependent I am on reading these things, now! Glad your vacay went well... Trav and I were just talking that this is the first year I haven't gone camping at all!! Most of it is because of the baby, but still... phooey! I think this is the first year of my life I probably won't go camping at all. :-(

Glad to hear everything's moving along nicely. Have fun with Autumn today... wish I could be with you girls... or having my baby. :-)
