    Good morning!

    Good luck to Cara and LadyJ with settlements today!

    Happy St Patrick's Day!  I'm not Irish and I don't drink beer, so this is an uneventful day for me.

    good morning!!! I miss you all! I'v 5ke been training in the lab and I found out from the guys who have been training me that I'm picking things up quickly. I also found out that my results from the extractions that I did the other day are coming in at a 5% differential when you can have up to 20%. yay! :) The one guy said that's pretty unheard of for your first extraction, so I'm happy. Sorry for the AW but I wanted to share it w/someone else aside from DH.

    DH and I went for a run yesterday (training for the 5k) and I knocked 40 secs off my 5k so yesterday was a good day.

    Hope your day is great today. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

    Good morning & Happy St. Patrick's day! I'm German... we get a whole month. I'll wait till then. :) FI is Irish though, and I already promised to be the DD, so today is really just about digging something green out of my closet (thankfully, I had green scrubs) so I don't get pinched all day.

    Good luck with the settlements, ladies! B2B, you must be so excited!! I'm excited for you:)

    Aww, thanks Mana:) I was convinced I was driving you crazy last night because I talk so much. I even told FI that I was afraid you left thinking I was nuts! I had a great time last night!

    Paprika - haha not at all, I need that!  I thought to myself you probably think I'm quiet but I'm not haha.  Trust me, get me going and i'll talk just as much.  I felt so much better, and J and I had a much better talk when he got home.  I think we're setting up to have an amazing vacation without the stress of all that's going on.

    Good morning!

    I had my first dress fitting last night, and it was insanely stressful.

    The dress was on the big side and the seamstress told me not to lose more weight (I've lost 12 pounds since ordering).  Dah!  I feel like the pressure to stay the same is not fun, plus I still want to tone up.  

    Then, my dress was a hem to hollow measurement.  It was too long, so I have to get new shoes to lift the dress up.   The seamstress said I need 3 inch heels.  I have 1.5 inches now.  I don't wear heels, so I am freaked out that I will be uncomfortable and fall.

    Then, the seamstress got blood on my dress after pricking herself with a pin.  I really hope the blood comes out.  :(

    Let's hope the next fitting goes better...

    Aw, sorry Ev. :(

    Mana- I'm so glad you guys talked! Yay for stress free vacations! :) I still have your shot glasses in my purse, btw. I went to take my water out this morning, and heard clinking and laughed. :) Now my co-worker thinks I'm an alcoholic. :)

    Ev - That sounds really stressful!! I can't believe she got blood on your dress - I would have been seriously PO-ed about that. Three inch heels aren't really that bad, especially if you get some with a bit of a platform, so the heel is actually shorter than 3''. If you wear them around the house to break them in and get used to them, I think you'll be fine. Also, I bought a sample dress 2 sizes too big for me and my seamstress said it wouldn't be a big deal to take in. I know every dress is different, but I don't think it makes sense to stop toning up so that your seamstress has less work to do.

    Sorry it didn't go so well Ev.  If you get a platform like Bean suggested, or wedges, or square/wider heels it shouldn't be to hard to walk in.  Just avoid thin stiletto heels if you're not used to them :)  When is your next fitting scheduled? You're getting close!

    OH NO EV!  That's awful!  I hope the next fitting is better.  Can they still hem it even thought it's hem to hollow?  I'd be uncomfortbale too in 3 inch heels.

    Paprika - haha I didn't know you had the glasses ON you!  Eh it's St patty's day, you can be an alcoholic and no one cares!  I'm hoping the guys at work are still on for happy hour tonight... only J has class so I can only have a beer or two.

    Yeah, the plan is to go with something with a little platform.  And to walk in them.  A lot.  The problem with the dress is that there is all this detail work around the bottom, so if the dress is hemmed, it won't look right.

    The thing that freaked me out the most was the blood.  I mean, I know blood does not come out easily, but I am hoping that the seamstress is used to it and can get it out.  Luckily it's not in a prominent spot (it's on the side of the dress), but I was still having a heart attack that there was BLOOD on my DRESS!! 

    The seamstress is supposed to call today or tomorrow to schedule my next fitting, so I'll make sure she got it out when she calls.  I'm guessing my next one will be in 2-3 weeks?  She didn't even start the bustle, because she is working on taking it in first.

    Good morning ladies! I'm so glad it's Thursday. I've been so busy this week since my boss was out a few days. Still have some things to catch up on but hopefully it won't be too crazy.

    YAY for settlements!

    B2B- I'm so happy for you! Single digits must feel amazing! Hope FI can get all his stuff together for the marriage license so you don't have to kill him haha.

    Madam - Glad you are healthy and happy today Laughing

    Ev - Oh, well if it can't be hemmed, platform-ish shoes would work.  GL!
