    Bec! Where the H have you been? You've been a little MIA this week.

    I've missed you!

    How's the house? How's Manda?  Chloe?

    I'm here! I have been working my ASS off, and my house went on the market this week, so my evenings consist of cleaning and then some cleaning and, if time allows, more cleaning. Oh! And hell froze over and I started to cook every day. It sucks ass, but I'm trying to lose weight.

    I also started browsing some other boards after the influx of stupid people who refuse to lurk before asking their kids (at the wedding!!!!) and guest list (uninvite!!!!) posts. How is it I've become addicted to reading the Flowers board, when I didn't even have flowers at my wedding or reception?!? :)

    EDIT: The girls are good! Chloe got her first pair of chucks last night, in pink. She almost slept in them. :) Manda may have a job, which is AWESOME. I told her if she didn't have one by June 1, she couldn't go on vacation with us this summer. That may have been the prompt to FINALLY get her ass in gear. :)

    I've missed you too!

    Oh, duh, I totally missed that thread, color me an idiot.  I was cleaning and packing all night last night and I haven't made my way through last night's discussions yet :)

    Love the update! :)  You rock.  And I can't figure out the flower obsession except there are so many flower ads right now (for Mother's Day) that I'm trying to THINK of people to send flowers too.  I kinda want to send them to myself, but I feel like it's creepy... hahaha.
  • Options
    I planted a shit-ton around my house in pots, and I just love spring flowers. I'm sure my obsession will die with the petals. :)

    haha oh Alexia, I know you didn't mean it in a mean way :)

    Andy, where is your lake house?  I'm originally from the Grand Rapids area but we have homes and property in the Douglas/Saugatuck area.  Have fun!

    Bec, I'm glad Manda is starting to get her stuff together.  Sometimes things just have to click.

    Bec - you most certainly can call her short stack.  That girl has so many nicknames, and she answers to all of them.  And I wanna get Joce some pink chucks too - I think they'd be so cute on her chubbly little legs.  But of course being the girly girl that she is, she always wants to wear flip flops or some cute slip ons.  So it'd be a waste of money. 

    I really hope you sell your house fast!  I know it'd be a HUGE stress reliever for you.

    Good morning, ladies! I wish I was taking a mini-vacation this weekend. Instead I have to garden and clean up our front yard- it's a MESS. Two of our main shrubs survived the blizzards but in a very squashed and defeated kind of way. They're coming out at some point. And tomorrow I get to hang out with Tide, so that's fun!

    Ooooh, and last night my husband brought home the cheesesteaks that TJ occasionally pimps on her blog. They were very, very good. Very.

    Morning ladies. Last night, our seven year old laptop got a virus and wouldn't let me download anti-virus software, so we're getting a new laptop tomorrow.

    I am thinking about attempting to make Mother's Day cards this weekend and we're going to see our nephews because they're in town and it's the oldest's 4th birthday. I'm going after work to buy him a pair of "real" cowboy boots at the local Western store. That's what his mom told us he really wants. He's from South Georgia and about as country as it gets. On Sunday we'll do the usual laying around and going to my parents' house for dinner.

    That was all a little stream of consciousness, but I'm not fully awake yet.

    Goood morning everyone!

    This weekend will be filled with last minute wedding junk, but I'm excited nonetheless.  I FINALLY talked FI into getting new glasses (he's had the same pair since high school and they're pretty beat-up/bent looking) so that and getting my ring dipped and cleaned are our major Saturday projects.  And figuring out/finalizing those damn upgrades.   And escort cards.  Whee!

    Well I probably wouldn't know where it is, except she moved to Ohio for 2 years of high school and then moved back there - so it was only by chance that I even met her.  But she's awesome, so it makes GR awesome too!  ;)

    [QUOTE]The zoo rocks!  Our first official date was at the zoo - for the Christmas lights - T thought it was the most stupid, lame thing ever because it was too cold for any animals to be out.  I love our zoo here though, it's really nice.  Have fun. ETA:  Kate#'s thanks!  I think it's hilarious.  She won't ride her bike, or skate without all that crazy gear on.

    Stacks I used to live in Springfield, before I moved to Cleveland. And I LOVE the Columbus zoo. My FI had never been and I forced him to go with me one weekend. He thanked me for making him go, he fell in love with the place.
    Going to try and get to the Cleveland zoo this year, we'll see if it stands up to the Columbus zoo

    Good morning ladies!

    ZOMFG Bec.  I can hardly believe it!

    I started making plans with my BFFs for Friday and the morning of, though, and that's getting me super excited.  One is flying in from Boston and I can't wait to see her.  My other friend's husband wanted to come with us for pedicures the morning of the wedding, so I made him an honoroary bridesmaid!

    Somehow I forgot that having a wedding involves getting to see a lot of awesome people I haven't seen in a long time.  So that's fun!

    Good morning everyone! I'm sick so although I'm a newb, I may be doing a fair share of knotting today.

    Stack, your little girl is too cute. I'm surprised she doesn't have pillows strapped to her as well!

    Bec, good for you for setting goals for your daughter getting a job! If my parents didn't set similar ultimatums for me, I probably wouldn't have gone to college Tongue out

    Also Alexia, I'm jealous of your beach weekend! Hope you have good weather!

    So even though I'm a Buckeye at heart - Eastern Michigan was always my favorite place to go to diving meets at.  It's so pretty, and I always placed really well for some reason.

    Wow, Kate!  I had no idea.  I went to Hillsdale.  Not that any of you probably know where that is either.  Well maybe you do, Kate, because it's only an hour away.
