AW Thursday!

So I'll start:  we got our engagement pictures back!! I love the photos but I don't really like seeing myself in them (does that make sense?)  It's weird seeing all these photos of yourself but the more I look at them the more I am liking them.

What does everyone else have to AW about?

    FI & I looked at a house last night.  It was beautiful and newly built, but when I was leaving to go home I turned the wrong way and started heading towards Redford/Detroit.  FI said that's enough for him not to want to buy the house. He thinks that I'll get mugged there and other bad things will happen.   :(

    I booked my DJ last week.  I wanted to AW then, but I didn't send the contract in until Tuesday so I waited until today!  We booked Paul Taylor from Sunshine Entertainment.  I saw him at Corinne's wedding and loved him.  And when we met with him, we knew he was the one for us.  So yay! One more check off my list!

    I don't have much now days but Saturday is my last day at my part time job until after the honeymoon. I have a wedding to go to next weekend and then my bach party/shower the next. Then it's October and I said no weekend work the month of the wedding! I'm pumped to not have to work Saturdays for 2 months!

    WR: finally took the time to send emails to the 4 caterers we met with. Had to send 2 to the "non-chosen" (hard for me, because I hate disappointing people), and 2 to the ones we want tastings with.

    NWR: My son got his grades back from his 6 week grad program at Oxford in July/August. They combine and average them, and out of the 4 tutorials he took he got an A-. I'm so proud of him.

    Also, my "baby" daughter started her junior year in HS. Not really an AW, but when you have to get up at 6:30 each morning and get a 15 yr old out the door at 7 am, and you can do it without yelling screaming, it's an AW. Just wait!

    Not much WR to AW about.  My MOH got fitted for her dress on Saturday and bought the flower girl dress that I was in LOVE with but didn't want to ask her to buy since it was a little expensive.  But she loved it on her daughter too so she bit the bullet.

    NWR: 2 more days of work and then I am off until the 20th.  Me and FI are leaving for Vegas on Sunday for a week! And while we are there we get to meet his newest nephew who was born Aug 28th.

    WR: I have 58 days to go and couldn't be more excited woo hoo! I bought the beads and crystals for all the BMs jewelry (my coordinator is hand making everything). Shower invites go out today! 30 days til the shower and I'm excited about that!

    NWR: aced another exam last night and hopefully will do the same tonight.

    Re: FI said that's enough for him not to want to buy the house. He thinks that I'll get mugged there and other bad things will happen.   :(  --Detroit isn't all bad. Bad things can happen no matter where you live. I've lived there for 33 years and have never been mugged/robbed/etc...good luck on house hunting!
