Re: *July Poll*

  • Checks for the month? FIND A PHOTOGRAPHER!!! (Haha, sorry for the caps girls, but I want to get this one out of the way!)
    Plan on working on or trying to make happen?  Find a job, create a happy summer for my son, get started on some DIY projects, get some more scrapbook pages in my colors for some of the DIY projects
    What's new and exciting in your life?  New? Exciting?  My life?  Ah now those things just don't go together!  Yeah...hmm.  I'm thinking, I'm thinking!  Let's see...currently we're living with my parents and they've found the model of house they want to have bult as well as the area they want to build it.  All that needs to be done before building can get started is the actual road needs to be extended out.  I want them to do this!!! We still have the house in Indiana for sale so have been renting in the meantime and this current house kept from having to move my son to a different classroom during the school year but we hate it.  Of course I'm hoping to find a full time job and w can get out on our own before this house gets built but if it doesn't, there will still be plenty of room for us all.  I'm thankful for supportive parents.
    Something Random?  Sleeeeppp....
  • Checks for the month?  Email the church to set up the walk through appointment with my parents and the FI, email photographers, email the DJ, find a cake topper I actually like, and a more "traditional" guest book to go with our awesome alternative
    Plan on working on or trying to make happen?  Actually clicking the "Compose" button on the email for the church and DJ and the "Contact Us" link for the photographers and actually look for the cake topper and guest book
    What's new and exciting in your life?  not really
    Something Random?  Pineapples are sticky

  • Checks for the month? Hopefully find a photographer, and going on my first trip to try on dresses!
    Plan on working on or trying to make happen? Trying to spend time with FI. He's been working between 60-80 hours a week lately, and we just don't get to see each other. Possibly a mini vacation somewhere? Who knows.
    What's new and exciting in your life? Not too much. My boss is about to have her twins!! I'm so excited for her! Other than that, not much. Just hanging out, and working. Ya know, the usual.
    Something Random?
    I just made a fantastic pork tenderloin. I'm starting to get really good at this cooking thing :)
  • Checks for the month?Well tomorrow (July 1st) meeting with a one of three potential florist. Then on July 11th we have our engagement class.
    Plan on working on or trying to make happen? Been working on DIY project. Hopefully can finish it. Also trying to find a full time job. Very difficult when all they want is experience.
    What's new and exciting in your life? Well I been hanging out with my new neice and pretty soon going to be helping our friends move closer to us. Then FI and will be looking for a house. I know nothing too exciting, but I have nothing.
    Something Random I can not wait to find a full time job to buy a house!!!
  • Checks for the month? We are meeting with our photography this month to set up engagement photos(it's too hot in Chicago to take photos during the summer lol) and talk about what we want to do for the wedding

    Plan on working on or trying to make happen? I really want to pick my invitations. I don't have a strong theme for the wedding design yet so I'm going to try to pick invites and work backwards. I may have found one I like and it's done on recycled paper which thrills me but I need the FI to look at it.
    I also want to put together an engagement dinner so that my friends and my FI friends can meet and mingle and find a cute way to ask my bridesmaids to be part of the wedding.

    What's new and exciting in your life? I am trying to find a new place to live! I have been living in Indianapolis this year to go to grad school and took a job closer to Chicago for the Fall. I'm very excited to be closer to the FI and this is like my dream job.

    Something Random? I have to mow the grass tomorrow.

    Checks for the month? Still trying to find a photographer, I think we're decided on a dj but we need to pay that ( we may be pushing our reception time up so we want to figure that out before we sign the dj contract)
    Plan on working on or trying to make happen? Agreeing on a photographerwould be fantastic, as soon as we figure out dates I want to start my invites, I want to purchase the rest of my flowers for the bms
    What's new and exciting in your life? Well we bought our wedding rings so thats done. I love mine. My birthday is coming up on the 11th and on the 9th I'm getting my wisdom teeth taken out...not too excited
