Good Morning!

I had an extremely busy weekend. Friday night had my girlfriends over for girl time while FI went to the casino with his friends. Also got our new bedroom furniture delivered. Saturday I worked until 4pm, then went and bought a comforter set, put it on, decided I hated it, took it back, went to Macy's, bought the one off our registry (couldnt wait lol). I also found out that some of the dishes we registered for were on the clearance rack for 40% off! I guess they are discontinuing the color we have. I also ordered more online. Lastly went and picked up my wedding band that was sized.
Sunday I worked again, then went to FI's parent's house for dinner.
Busy day at work today and need to get to the gym tonight.

Hope everyone has a great day!

    Morning!
      We had a nice weekend. Friday I got my tire put on the car.  When we went to drive it out, turns out they put the wrong freaking tire on my car.  Had to take it back in and get the right one put on.  But my car is back and ready to go.  Saturday was so freaking hot!  We only have a window unit air conditioner so we stayed in the bedroom and watched movies for part of the day.  Then we went furniture shopping-didn't find anything but have realized we have totally different taste in furniture.  Sunday was beautiful and cool and so nice outside.  We hung out outside for much of the day then drove down to Deep Creek Lake for dinner with a few friends.  All in all a nice weekend. 
    I plan on getting motivated this week and actually doing some things.  I've been getting up late and not doing too much more then being on the computer and reading books the last two weeks.  I really want to get my last vacation scrapbook done this week and orgainze all my recipes.  That's the plan for this week, so we'll see.
    Have a great MOnday!

    Jamie -- Yay for clearance, but I hope you get all your pieces!

    Heather -- It was HOT!  I'm doing my best to hand-write my recipes right now.  I got two done and my hand got tired!  LoL!

    We had a busy weekend.  Saturday was a birthday party in the afternoon and then we played poker Saturday night.  I had too much Sweet Tea Vodka that was mixed with Lemonade.  I remembered why I drink beer now and NOT liquor. :(  Yesterday morning HURT.

    Sunday we had a graduation party and we were lucky that it cleared up in the afternoon.  The heat actually wasn't so bad.  Now... it's back to work, but it looks so NICE outside!!  Hope to start hitting the gym a TON from now on because I really want to go find my dress, but I promised myself 10 - 15lbs lost before I can go!

    Hi everyone!

    I'm back from the beach. I think this year's vacation was titled "bad luck vaction". We had to leave later because the pup was sick, my car broke before we left, I got sick our first few days down there, FI's car got scratched and a belt broke, and then he got sick. So we are kinda glad to be back.

    FI has another week off this week so it'll be nice just to relax and hang out. This weekend his parents are traveling to Pittsburgh with us to meet my parents. They are really nice just really different than my parents so I hope it goes well!

    Jamie- Congrats on getting your plates. I CANT WAIT to be able to register and start getting ours!


    Heather- You're not lying about the heat! It's crazy and I'm over it. Good excuse to spend the day relaxing though!


    Meg- Sorry about the hangover. Mine have been getting terrible the older I get. Yuck!

    GM!! I had a wonderful weekend! Friday we went to a birthday party for a good friend of mind, Saturday we had a wedding to attend and yesterday was my SHOWER!!! It was so wonderful!  All of my BMs decorated with pink and navy, I met all of Chuck's family (kind of akward not knowing any of them when walking in). It was a wonderful day!

    Last night we had a family bonding session over invitations, I was writing addresses, my brother and dad were stuffing envelops and my mom and sister were putting belly bands on the invitations! haha it was fun!

    Here's a pic of one of my BMs and I at the shower.


    Have a wonderful day!

    Good Morning! I have been lurking on these types of posts for months, and decided maybe I should start joining. This weekend, we went to Charlotte, NC for FI's nieces christening, he is the godfather. But boy did the trip start out bad. First we didnt leave at the time we wanted to. Then about 20mins into the trip we realized we forgot FI's suit at home and had to turn around. Then finally, on at about 30 mins into the next trip after turning around, one of our tires completely blew out on the highway. We had to stop in Morgantown and get a new tire put on. But after that we made it there safely, and had a great time.
    This week is busy, meeting with another photographer on Wednesday and then hopefully making up our minds on who to go with.

    Good Morning Ladies!
    FI and I had a great weekend at the beach! Although it was super hot, we made the best of it! We left for the beach Friday around 5ish and ended up getting there before 7. We then went to Bay Village to grab some dinner and walk around the shops. The next day was SUPER hot! We first went to breakfest then decided to brave the heat and try to go to the beach anyway... lol... needless to say, we only lasted about an hour down there before we had to call it quits! It was so stinking hot! We then drove to Ocean City NJ to walk the boardwalk for the night... it was SO hot but so fun! We ate dinner on the boardwalk and browsed the stores... it was fun! Yesterday we went to lunch then walked around Bay Village again... FIs dad came down for the night and we went to dinner together before FI and I left to go home.

    So my misspelled STDs came in! lol - they look SO nice and I CAN'T WAIT till the new ones arrive! I'm still SO mad at myself for not catching that error! I thought our magnets weren't delivered but FIs brother came in late last night with the package! I still have yet to see them but FI said they look great! Can't wait to see them!!

    JamieK - yay for bedroom furniture and finding your dishes on clearence!! woohoo

    Heather - glad you got your tires on and squared away! It's ok to be lazy sometimes! Enjoy your summer off while it lasts!

    InkedMegs - I hear you on the gym thing! I desperately need to get back there!! GL with it and I hope you can go look for your dress soon!!

    mm - SO sorry to hear about your vacation! :( And GL with your FILs meeting your parents!! many vibes that all goes well!

    Meg -YAY for your shower! Love the pic! Your dress is super cute!!! And how sweet that your family was all together helping you finish your invites!! :)

    Good Morning ladies! I'm back after a lovely and relaxing week in Bethany Beach. Surprisingly, I don't even really mind being back to work today! It's amazing how calm and relaxed I feel- hoping that feeling lasts a while! It just shows how much I really needed a vacation. We had great weather, though it was HOT- 95 when we left at 10 AM on Sat. At least there was a nice ocean breeze most of the time. We just went to the beach and lazed, visited a winery, played mini golf, and rented one of those 4 person bikes (the kind where 2 pedal in front, 2 in back) to bike around Rehoboth. We watched the sunrise one morning- it was gorgeous. I have pics on FB if you're my friend on there. Now I'm just trying to catch up on everything, including on here.

    JamieK- Yay for some new furniture and plates! I don't blame you for buying off the registry- too good of deals!

    H- I'm glad it's cooling down too! Don't be too hard on yourself about just relaxing- you'd been doing so much the past few months that you need a break!

    Meg- That drink sounds amazing! Sorry to hear it didn't agree with you though- hope you're feeling better by now!

    m- Sorry to hear all of that happened on vacation! Our HM was a bit of a disaster, as I got sick and we had crappy weather. I hope you were at least able to enjoy some of it!

    Meg- Yay for your shower this weekend! You look gorgeous in that pic! What was your favorite gift?

    Isee- Sorry to hear about your trip issues as well! I'm glad all went smoothly once you got there though.
    G- Glad you had a good trip to the beach! Where's Bay Village?

    Good Morning!
    Friday I hung out with my little sister and then DF and I hung out and watched a movie, Saturday was my sister's graduation party so we spent the day there and it was HOT in the evening we went to a cash bash. Yesterday I went shopping with my sister for stuff for her dorm and then we went to a baptism party. Needless to say with all the parties and running I ate HORRIBLY.. so I went to the gym this morning. I plan on going to David's Bridal after work to pick up my BM's dresses since I don't work all that far away from Monroeville. While I'm there I have to try on a few BM dresses for one of my BM's dresses whose wedding is next June.

    Jamie- Discounted plates and new furniture is so fun!
    Heather-  I can't believe how much hassle you had trying to get a tire on your car! Glad everything is ok now!
    Inked- That was me Saturday night.. I had way too much wine!
    McKenzie- Im so sorry you had such bad luck! Are your puppy and you both feeling better?
    Meg- You looked beautiful at your shower! That's so exciting! What was your favorite gift?
    Laina- Glad you made it safely! How are plans going?

    Good Morning,

    I had a great weekend! Two of my friends (who are engaged to each other) came to visit. He is my BFF from college and she's my BFF from home. They met at a WVU party when she visited me, and now are happily engaged! We always have such a fun time when they come into town. They came in on Saturday, and I felt like cooking so I made a Spanish lunch with a Spanish tortillla (like an omelet), tomatoe, avocado, onion salad, fresh bread, jamon and cheese tray, shrimp fritters and cookies. We hung out drank some wine, then at night we went to a nice Indian restaurant then had more wine and played apples to apples (so much fun!) Sunday, we went to breakfast on the Hill, and then my friends went to the Boyscout 100 Anniversary parade (he's super into scouts) needless to say, we did not go, instead I prepared a Mexican feast for dinner with carnitas, beans, rice, guac, salsa, etc. We just hung around last night ate, played Mexican dominos and had a blast. They left this morning. :(

    We have quite the crowd this morning!  Let's see...
    Jamie- I love how you are buying things off your registry!
    H- Your trip down to Deep Creek sounds great! Sounds like you guys are settling in for married life. :)
    MM- You have time to find a dress! I still haven't started shopping, but will this weekend!
    Duq- Details on your shower, please!
    Lsee- Welcome! Glad things shaped up on your trip!
    GMC- I felt so bad for you and the STD!! I'm sure these new ones will be much better! :)
    Kim- Welcome back!! Sounds like you had the perfect vacation!
    Ros- Where is your sister going to school at?

    Have a great day all!

    Good morning!  Whew, it was a busy weekend here too :)  I flew back to Chicago Friday, swung by Macy's to pick up some items from our registry we didn't get to take advantage of the Home Sale discounts (Dyson vacuum yeah!!!), had dinner out at a new Indian restaurant, then had CRAZY storms with like six inches of rain and lots of flooding.  Saturday I did kickboxing, went out to lunch with DH, spent like four hours looking at new apartments, then went to a lovely work party for DH out in the suburbs.  Yesterday we had a great brunch, did some shopping and more apartment searching, started seriously packing me up, and had my BFF over for dinner.

    Jamie, that is a busy weekend, especially with working too!
    Heather, thank goodness your car saga is finally done.
    Megan, I lurve that sweet tea vodka!  Dangerous though ;)
    McKenzie, sorry the vacation was so rough!  Good luck with FILs visit this week.

    YAY Meg, I'm so glad your shower was fun!  LOVE the dress you wore!  What was your favorite gift that you got?

    Laina, more vacation bad luck on the board, whew!  Glad you finally made it safely.
    Gianna, glad your beach weekend was great despite the heat!
    Kim, welcome back!  I'm so happy your vacation was fun and relaxing!  Going to check out pics now :)
    Trisha, that IS a lot of parties!  GL with the BM dresses today- have you seen them all in person yet?

    Kim - Bay Village is the little 'shopping' area in Long Beach Island NJ (where FIs parents have a house) It's really cute and doesn't get the congestion/crowd that beaches with boardwalks have! I really enjoy it there! SOOOO glad you had a fun, relaxing vacation! Isn't it funny what a little relaxation could do for you?!? Oh and by the way I LOVE those big, 4 person bicycles! SO much fun!!

    Trisha - glad you had fun with your sister and family this weekend! And I hear you on the eating crappy! FI and I had ice cream EVERY night this weekend!! I need to get back to the gym ASAP! lol

    Jamie - WOW the food sounds absolutely AMAZING! I might be visiting as well! ;) SO glad you had fun with your BFFs! What an awesome story of how they met!! :)

    LaFemme - Wow! sounds like you had another busy, fun weekend! When do you move to CT?? Are you really nervous?!?

    G, the moving van comes Wednesday or Thursday, and then a week later I fly to Pittsburgh and then drive to CT to meet the van and get moved in.  At this point I'm mostly nervous about getting finished with all the summer coursework I've neglected because of wedding stuff up til now!

    Meg & Kim- Welcome back! Glad to hear you both had nice vacations!
    Jamie- That food sounds soo good! That is so sweet about your friends! My sister is going to Cal U.. at least for now.. she is extremely undecided with what she wants to major in!
    Jen- You and DH are living apart while you are in school, right? I have seen them in person, but not in the color they ordered them in. They are all different dresses, but in the color Lapis. I really didn't care very much about what they chose so they are all pretty different!

    Trisha, yep, we'll be mostly living apart while I'm in school.  Not ideal!  I will try to be back in Chicago for next summer, though.  The dresses sound pretty!  I love the look of having different styles in the same color.
