Happy Friday!

Morning!
  Happy Friday:-)  I am home and ready to do a million tasks for the weekend. There are bags of wedding stuff all over our house.  My goal for the weekend is to sort everything out and figure out what I need to store, what I need to sell, and what I need to pitch.  On the agenda for today is cleaning the house and grocery shopping since we have no food in the house.
  Yesterday DH and I stopped at the casino (table games opened) on the way back to maryland.  I won $250 on that same penny slot machine!  It helped recoup some of the money I spent in Hawaii.
  Hope everyone has a great day!

    Good Morning! I'm anxious for work to be over today as FI's brother and his wife are coming tonight from DC for the DMB concert tomorrow! We are having a cook out at our house with a bunch of friends since it's only about 5 minutes from the North Shore instead of tailgating allllll day. I'm soooo glad that the weather is supposed to be beautiful!

    Heather - Sounds like you have quite a busy day/weekend ahead of you! Glad you had a great time in Hawaii and had luck on the slots on your way home! Enjoy your weekend!

    Good morning everyone.

    Sad to say we have a sick puppy again. So our beach trip is set back a couple of days. I got him meds yesterday but we have our actual vet appointment today. Cross your fingers I don't have to spend an arm and a leg!

    Heather- I have some friends who went to the table games and they said they were crowded and expensive. I've never been there but it might be worth going for something new and fun to do!


    db- Have fun with the cookout and concert. Cookouts are my favorite part of summer!

    Good morning ladies!  Wow, look how early I'm on here today ;)  I'm about to go to kickboxing and then start running lots of errands here in the burgh, but I am meeting a new grad school classmate for drinks later on- exciting!  Yesterday my dad helped me run a bunch of errands (including shoe shopping, bless his heart), and then I had Middle Eastern food with my mom and finished all our table assignments and placements!

    H, welcome back!  Yay for winning at the casino- I think it must be the newlywed glow carrying over :)  Good luck with getting your life back in order this weekend!
    Danielle, sounds like a great weekend- have fun at the concert tomorrow!
    McKenzie, so sorry to hear that your doggy is still sick :(  Vibes that he is feeling better soon!

    Good Morning!
    I had another great night with my mom last night! It's so great having here here for more than just a day or two! She made us soup for dinner (my favorite of my grandma's recipes) so we ate as soon as I got home and then we ran to my puppies vet to pick up her new supply of tick meds. After that we went to BB&B to get me new sheets and a few other things. We came home and just relaxed! Tonight we're planning to go to dinner at Bahama Breeze and hang out at KOP mall for a bit! Can't wait!

    Heather - I CAN'T wait to read your wedding recap post! I'm sure you feel a bit overwhelmed with all of the things you have to do! And YAY for winning money at the Casino! woohoo! Hope you had an amazing time in Hawaii!!! :)

    db - sounds like you have a fun weekend planned! Have fun with your friends at the concert and I hope you have a sunny and bright day tomorrow!

    McKenzie - so sorry to hear about your puppy!!!!!!!!!! I hope everything works out with the vet apt!

    GM!  I have a new bff, his name is John and he works at Staples! ha He helped me print and cut all of my RSVPs last night.  It is such a relief to have them done!

    We are having dinner with friends tonight, DMB tomorrow and Sunday I am spending with my mom and sister shopping for a dress for my sister to wear to my shower.  Should be a nice little weekend!

    Heather- Yay for big winnings at the casino!  I hope you had an amazing week in Hawaii, hopefully you get some time to relax this weekend!

    Danielle- Are you a big DMB fan? DF is a big fan, we have been to 6 shows together since we've been dating.  It's fun to see him so excited over it all.  Although, he is knows how to play all of the songs on his guitar so he knows what song is coming next (before it is played).  I tell him it is no fun to go to a show with him when there is no surprise element!

    MM- Vibes for your puppy!

    Jen- How sweet of your dad to go shopping with you yesterday!  Enjoy the weekend!

    Good morning! I don't post here much but I think I'll start.. so I hope you ladies all have a wonderful weekend! I'll learn your names soon!

     I'm excited for it to be the weekend. We finally finished our invitation mock-up last night. I need to figure out a place to get the RSVP postcards printed, or if it would be cheaper to just do them as an insert and have them mailed back.

    Good Morning!  I am working on finishing up my last few days as am AmeriCorps teacher, and looking for employment.  Other than that, I don't really have that much going on today. 
    Oh...my dress arrived from canada the other day

    Good Morning All,

    Last night I met FI and his coworkers for drinks in Georgetown, then we headed to a delicious pizza place, 2 Amys, for dinner. It was a fun night! I think we are thisclose to booking Joanna Fassinger as our photographer. Today, my goal is to call the florist and cake man and get appointments scheduled for next weekend.

    This weekend, I think FI and I are going to see Toy Story 3 and then I am going to try to get him to stick around and see Eclipse too. WR-- I am going to locate my bouquet/centerpiece inspiration pictures and try to figure out a way to print them in color... hmmm... is it possible? Maybe I can just email them to the florist ahead of time and we can look at them on his computer... any thoughts?

    H- I am SO excited to read your recap!! Congrats on the slots!
    DB and Duq- have a BLAST at DMB. Oh, how I heart Dave Matthews... ooo perhaps I'd marry him, I may have to edit my poll from yesterday!
    MM- Healthy vibes to your puppy and frugal vibes to you!
    Jen- I am so excited for you and your wedding! I can't wait to hear all about it! In th meantime good luck with your errands this weekend!!
    GMC- you going to KOP... No way! :) have a blast with your Mom!!!

    have a fantastic weekend all!

    Goodmorning all.  I went to muscle madness and an abs class last night, holy cow was she a squat lover.  I can barely sit today.  Thank goodness I'm at work all day and barely need to move.  Tonight I need to conjure something up for dinner and I'll likely just read bar crap on the bike at the gym while DH runs.  I find it too hard to read on the elliptical.

    Meg - Your new bff, lol.

    Mckenzie - puppy vibes

    lafemme - where did you go to cardio kickbox? And wow, can;t believe your dad went shoe shopping!  Mine re steamed my whole huge wedding gown because he wasn't satisfied.

    heather - I'm so excited for your recap!

    Danielle-Sounds like a super fun weekend!  Have a great time at the concert!
    McKenzie-so sorry about your doggie.  Do they know what is wrong with him?  Pet meds are crazy expensive, I don't get it.  I hope he gets better soon!

    Jen-Sounds like you are almost ready!  Glad you got a bunch of errands finished and meeting a new friend for drinks sounds like fun!

    G-Glad you are having so much fun with your mom!  Enjoy the mall and your dinner:-)

    J-I so want to see Eclipse-DH and I almsot saw it on the honeymoon! I e-mailed my florist the pictures of my flowers and he ended up printing them in color for himself.  Sounds like you are getting ready to choose a lot of your vendors!

    Good Morning, and TGIF! I was lazy at skipped kickboxing last night, and now I feel guilty. But in my defense, it was hot (no A/C in the gym), and I got home late after waiting outside in the sun for our apt. shuttle bus for a half hour (never did show up). Tom. I'm going to see Eclipse again, this time with a former co-worker (if she tells me when she got the tickets for...). Other than that, hopefully some pool time on Sun., church, grocery shopping, and shopping for a pair of jean shorts for vacation. Have a wonderful weekend ladies!

    H- Good to see you back! GL getting back on track with everything this weekend- I know I was totally overwhelmed with everything when we got back. And congrats on your casino winnings- you are SO lucky!


    db- Have fun at DM tom.!


    m- Good vibes for your pup!


    LaFemme- Sounds like a busy, yet fun day! One week away now!


    G- Yum, soup! Even though it's hot, I've been craving some, esp. my mom's wedding soup.


    Meg- Glad you got the RSVPSs done! Have fun at DM!

    robyn- Nice to "see" you on here! What ever happened with Banquets Unlimited? Have you gotten the contract?


    mil- Wow, that dress is stunning!! And yay for helping out others with the purchase!


    Jl- If you don't want to waste the colored ink, I'd just email the florist the pics- I'm sure he or she could print them out, or just pull them up on the screen.

    Bri- A lot of the time I move very slowly in the day or two following my usual kickboxing class. So you're not alone. :-)

    Jamie - YAY for the checks!!! :) When I went to my florist I brought pics I printed out at work - I also emailed some but she keeps a file folder for me that she kept my images in. Maybe contact whoever it is and ask if they prefer hard copies or if email will suffice. As for KOP... I am quite obsessed with the mall - lol - it makes it worse that I live 2 miles away and could practically walk there! lol... feeds my addiction! Enjoy the weekend!

    mili - Your dress looks beautiful! Great check!

    bri - I did a Jillian Michaels on demand workout on Tuesday and I STILL can't walk up/down stairs! It's so intense! lol

    robynann - GL with the invites and RSVPs! Did you try Kinkos or Staples for the printing? Are you asking if it would be cheaper to have a postcard or an insert w/ a seperate envelope? If so, I think a postcard would def be cheaper... Maybe try Vistaprint?

    Morning! Last night my mom and sister came over to help with some DIY stuff.. and we ended up drinking a lot of margaritas and not getting a whole lot done lol oh well..  DF cooked dinner for us AND did the dishes.. bless his heart! I've been feeling a little overwhelmed with wedding stuff the past week. I'm trying to shake it, but I'm feeling really angsty.. again my DF has been super suportive and helpful and is constantly reminding me why I'm marrying him! I'm looking forward to having nothing planned this weekend and getting wedding stuff accomplished and getting back into my gym routine and hopefully squeezing in some pool time!

    Heather- Welcome back! How was Hawiai?
    Danielle - Have fun at DMB!
    Mckenzie- I'm so sorry to hear your puppy is sick again!
    Gianna- Glad you're having fun with your mom!
    Jen- One more week! Yay! Good luck with getting the details complete. You seem super organized, so I'm sure you have everything all ready to go! Good luck!
    Meg- Glad you were able to get those done! I hate printing things! I'm not looking forward to doing my invites!
    Robyn- It might be cheaper and easier to do them as an insert.. good luck!
    Amanda- Your dress is gorgeous!
    Bri- I give you props for doing anything while exercising. I can't even keep my I pod on me!
    Jamie- It might be easier to send them to the florist so he has them on file. Good luck!
    Kim- I haven't been to the gym in a WEEK! It's throwing me off big time!

    Kim - thanks! I got things straightened out with them. They mailed me a contract and I made a few changes on it and mailed it back. They verbally said one thing but the contract said something else, so I wrote the change on there to coincide with their verbal information.  How was eclipse? I can't convince FI to go with me!

    gm - It works out to be $32 with shipping and everything from Vistaprint since I had to upload the two pictures. I'm going to wait a bit to see if I can find a free upload code. That's a good idea about Kinkos and Staples - I'm going to have to price them and see what they can do. Thanks!

    Robyn- so glad you got the contract finally! I hope the rest is smooth sailing for you. Eclipse was great- I really like how they tell more of the backstory, like Jasper's past, and Rosalie's. And I love when Bella and Edward get engaged- as I've said before, I'm such a sap!

    ros- Sorry to hear your stressing- I hope this weekend is super relaxing for you! It's good to hear that DF is there for you- very sweet that he made you guys dinner last night too!

    Good morning! I'm just at work and the psych clincal again.

    Last night was really interesting and kind of scary...watched someone get put in restraints and then in seclusion, got flashed twice, someone else ended up with stitches...some other things happened, but it was definitely the most interesting evening so far.

    Have a great weekend girls! See you on Monday :)

    Thanks for the well wishes ladies :)

    Bri- when I'm home I use my family's membership at the Baeirl YMCA in Wexford.  I'm happy to see that they have two types of kickboxing several times a week- regular/ boot camp style kickboxing and my favorite, Turbokick.  This AM was the regular one.

    Amanda- your dress is beautiful!  Agree with everyone else, I LOVE the back.
