Happy Hump Day!

Morning ladies!
  It's a rainy day here and I have a cold:-( BOO!  I hope I get over it soon or I am not going to be a happy camper-any recommendations on what to take for it?
  Last night FI and I went through our e-pics to choose the ones we wanted to our guest book.  I made eggplant parm for dinner which was a nice treat.  I also called and confirmed with the caterer, the reception site manager, and the RD site. I also pulled all the cookie recipe's I want to make in the next 2 weeks.
  Not much going on today-4 days left with kids and unfortunately 2 of mine got suspended yesterday, so it should be a quiet day.
Have a good day!

    Good Morning!
    Another uneventful night for me last night! Class was let out LATE which kind of stunk... but ONE MORE CLASS TO GO TODAY AND I'M DONE FOR THE SUMMER! woohoo!

    H - Yay for almost being done! Oh and btw, the link you sent me last night to access your e-pics wouldnt work for me :( It first had me create an account and then said: 'we're sorry but the x & x e-pics are not yet available' or something along those lines... I can't wait to see them though!

    Good morning! Its rainy here as well. I took the bus today so my dad can fix my headlight and my hair is a mess already... oh well. Last night's event went well, we went out for drinks afterwards at Atria's and then I didn't get home until pretty late. DF bought a new truck yesterday so I had to check it out in the dark. Today is pretty normal. I'm thankful to be able to go straight home after work for once this week.

    Heather- I swear by Advil cold & sinus, that always knocks out whatever I have. I also really like Alkeseltzer (sp?) Plus. Hope you feel better! Love eggplant parm! Bummer about your kids getting suspended!

    Have a great day!

    GM, the rain and cold really made it hard to get out of bed this morning!  But, alas, it is Wednesday and half way done with the week!

    Hope everyone has a great day!

    H-What cookies are you going to make?!  I need to start thinking about this too!

    Good Morning, and Happy Hump Day! I actually got quite a bit done last night, the big things being that I worked out (which never happens during the week) and I had time to watch America's Got Talent. It helped that DH had dinner ready when I got home (we had brinner- breakfast for dinner- and he's always in charge of that). Tonight is our marriage tune-up meet-up, and that's it. DH is making dinner again, so I am enjoying a nice break from cooking. Smile

    H- Eggplant parm sounds so yummy! Hope you get over your cold soon. I swear my Dayquil/Nyquil when I'm sick. Also, make sure you get your Vitamin C. I love Halls Defense coughdrops- they are pretty yummy, and a great way to get your Vitamin C.

    G- Yay for your last class tonight! I hope it's a quick one!

    ros- I'm glad last night went well for you.

    Meg- I said the same thing this morning- wish I could be off and have a lazy day at home today. The rain was just starting as I came into work.

    Good Morning All,

    Nothing very exciting over this way. I did find out the other day that the wedding coordinator, Judy, at the Twentieth Century Club died in April. I had no idea that she was sick, but apparently she had cancer for quite a while. She was a sweet lady with instutional knowledge about the club. I called yesterday to make sure that our wedding was still on the books and everything and looks like Judy's assistant, Gayle is taking over the planning.

    Yesterday, I had a meeting at the White House, which is always a humbling experience and FI and I had steak for dinner and just hung out. He's still feeling crappy, but every day a little better. Tonight, we are getting my boss' dog to dog-sit for the week while he's on vacation. She's a boston terrier and adorable. I'm very excited!

    Have a good day!

    H- Ooo what kind of cookies?? Also I LOVE, LOVE LOVE your engagement pictures, they are sooo beautiful, sweet and full of love! What is the song playing on the background? They were fantastic! Also, I hope you feel better. If you are stuffy- little noses decongestant drops are miracle workers!
    GMC- YAY for last day of class!! I hope it goes quick and smoothly!
    Ros- Hope your hair dries out! :)
    Kim- Mmmm... I was thinking of making brinner for dinner tonight also.

    G-That link worked for some people and it didn't for others.  I'm not sure why.  SOrry you couldn't see them:-(  YAY for one more class though!  I bet your excited!
    ros-what kind of truck did FI get?  my FI has a newer Toyota that he loves.  I've actually tried Alkaseltzer before and it does work....I just always forget about it!

    Meg-I am making chocolate chip with these white and blue york pepermint patty chips (my colors), blue and white sugar cookies (like black and whites-only blue), Espresso crinkles, Scotchies, an orange cookie, and two other kinds I can't remember right now.  One of my aun'ts just retired and she's making 10 different types for us, so I'm looking forward to that!

    Kim-YAY for DH cooking!  I love when that happens:-)

    Jamie-thanks!  We thought they were pretty good:-)  Sorry FI still isn't feeling well...I just hope I'm over my cold by the wedding!  You got to have a meeting at the White house?  That's so cool!

    Good morning ladies!  I'll try to blow some of this California sunshine your way by the weekend :)  I've been getting huge amounts of wedding stuff done during the day this week, woohoo!  Last night FI and I went out with the couple we're staying with for amazing Mexican food in the Mission, followed by some good Belgian beer at a little bar down the street.

    Heather, I'm sorry you're sick!  I always take Nyquil at night and then Mucinex plus a double dose of Advil during the day, and also drink those "Emergen-C" packet things.  Your cookies sound delish!  I also got to watch your slideshow yesterday, and your pictures are so lovely!  I love the locations you guys chose.

    Gianna, congratulations on your last class!  It will feel so great to be done!
    Trisha, yay for the new truck!  Will you drive it too?
    Meg, hope the weather looks up for the rest of the week.
    Kim, yay for a productive evening!  Have fun at the marriage tune-up tonight.
    Jamie, I'm so sorry to hear about your wedding planner, that must have been shocking news.  I hope her assistant is as capable as she was.

    Jen- Glad you've been getting a lot accomplished! Are you getting DIY stuff done? This is something I've seriously been slacking on! I have my own car, I always drove his old truck but since this one is quite larger, I think I'll be too afraid that I'll hit something with it!

    Thanks ladies :)  Yep, it's some DIY and just some regular stuff, like finally booking my lighting vendor and my ceremony singer.  Just ordered bridal luncheon invites and a bunch of candy for the candy buffet, and I'm working on my programs, table numbers, and escort cards.

    Kim, Egypt was awesome!  You and your DH will have to go someday.

    (Wow!  It's hard to follow everyone's names/usernames!!  LoL.  I'll get the hang of it!  But rest assured, I read all about your days I just can't quite refer to anyone, yet!  LoL.)

    Today WAS a gloomy day.  I'm not feeling well either -- I think it's from sleeping with the windows open with the cooler weather.  I'm not sure if it's allergies, but the window always gives me a sore throat.  I need to get some Halls defense!

    I'm actually starting a new job on Monday.  I'm currently a Store Manager for Starbucks (it feels REALLY weird to say that on a local board because I feel so exposed for some reason, LoL) and I'm heading into the M - F work world.  Very exciting but very scary!  So... if any of you are Starbucks customers, you may know the relationships I have with my customers.

    So today, Friday and Saturday are my final goodbyes with the relationships/friendships I've built with my customers over the past two years.  Very sad and a few ladies almost had me in tears today with their well wishes.  Tomorrow is my drug test and physical for the new job.

    Megan, best of luck with the new job!  That's got to be a big yet exciting transition.  Hope your final two days at work go well.
