Pennsylvania-Pittsburgh

TGIF!

Yay for Friday! Last night I met up with a bunch of my old sorority sisters. It was nice to get together with them.. it had been a while! Suffering from a little wine headache though this morning ;)

Today, i'm the only one in my department at work, so it will be VERY quiet but i'm hoping to get lots done.

No big plans for the weekend. Just spending the day tomorrow with my family (its my mom's bday) and hoping to make some progress on our invitations!

hope everyone has a wonderful friday! Any fun weekend plans?!

    It's Friday!!!  Wooo-hooo!!!! {{{SNOOPY DANCE}}}

    We tried a sample cake for the rehearsal dinner last night.  I want to incorporate a little San Antonio flair into it with a Tres Leches cake.  I didn't realize how hard that would be in Pittsburgh.  My wedding planner saved the day...again.  She found a bakery in Mars (5 mins from my work) that makes them.  We tasted the sample last night...wow!!!!  It was amazing!!!  The bakery is Sweethouse Bakery.  Amazing!!!  I also got 2 dog treats when I was there so the pups could enjoy too!

    This weekend we are going to relax with some friends...and then we can all eat cake!  lol

    MD- Good luck with the cleaning.  I need to get on that too.

    DB- Hope you have a great day with your Mom tomorrow. 



    Pittsburgh September Siggy - Our honeymoon will be at the Royal Suites Turquesas in P*nta Cana. Super excited!

    Morning!
    Had class last night so that wasn't terribly fun, but after class I met up with my dad and FI at Chili's for a quick bite to eat. When we got home, I packed and we all went to sleep. This morning my dad drove me into work - we're going to leave here around 2:30-3:00ish and head home. It will be a nice change to drive rather than fly... I despise the Philly airport!

    Let see, tomorrow morning my mom and I are going to the Strip in search of candy buffet supplies. After that, we have a meeting with the florist then are running to the mall to make some returns and look for an outfit for my mom to wear to my shower. I then have a 3:00 hair appointment and after we are meeting my dad and brothers at the Casino for dinner. Later that evening, my aunt who will be singing at our ceremony is coming over to help us select ceremony music and readings! Action packed day, but I'm super excited to see my family!

    db - Happy b-day to your mom! Also GL with the invites! We're hoping to send mine out this weekend!

    md - yay! Does that mean you'll be in town for the GTG??

    Good morning!

    So last night we went to meet with a photographer. We got there at a little before 8 and ended up talking to him until past 10. I loved his work! He is a little pricey for us though, and with this condo not being sold yet I don't know if we will put the payment down yet :-(

    We didn't eat dinner before we went to meet with him, and by the time we left all the restaurants were closed, and we had no food in the apartment. FI ended up making some quick pasta. I fell asleep watching basketball and didn't wake up until the FI carried me to bed (he's good like that :-)

    Going to a wedding tomorrow in Cincinnati and hopefully my FI and I will celebrate our 3 year dating anniversary this weekend (our 3 year is on Monday).

    dp- I am very jealous of your quiet office right now.

    md- I have wanted to go on a cleaning rampage for months now, and I haven't been able to since we have been out of town every weekend :-(

    Janice- That sounds really, really yummy!

    GMC- Have fun this weekend!

    Bummer day for me & FI. The buyer of his townhouse backed out. :( She's kind of been leading us on and inconviencing us for the past week, so in a way it's a relief, but we're just sad because we thought we had it taken care of :(

    I'm off call this weekend. Tonight we are going to meet with the manager at our reception venue to revise and sign our contract. I hope everything goes smoothly. I think FI is going to his parents house Sat and I am going to spend some time with my sister. Hopefully FI and I will have some time to just relax and enjoy being together.

    Janice - That's great Sumer has been such a good help! And cake tasting sounds yummy!

    G- Can't believe your wedding is so soon! Good luck finding everything you need and have a safe trip!

    Sari - Ask the photog if you can do the down payment in a few small amounts, that way you can hold the date. What is his service price and price for rights to photos? If you are on a budget you can always get albums at a later time or do then online through something like Shutterfly if you buy the rights. Happy Anniversary!

    It's finally Friday!!! I've been MIA on here for a few days, work has been kicking my butt! Last night I left the hospital an hour late because my patient's were trying to die on me and I wasn't having any of that! It was so frustrating that everything that could go wrong would and doctors were impossible to get a hold. Thank god I don't go back to work until Monday night!
    Not sure what plans FI an I have for tonight, I put him in charge of finding something fun to do.
    But this Saturday my mom and FMIL are going dress shopping at MB bride in Greensburg. They are the only place in the pgh area that has a certain Maggie Sottero dress that I have fallen in love with and compare all the other dresses I've tried on to. Hopefully it all work outs.

    db - quiet and productive days at work are always the best kind. good luck with
    your invites, can't wait to see pics!

    md - I feel the same way about cleaning and working-out, it needs to get done but I keep pushing it off.

    janice - i never heard of a Tres Leches cake, i must live under a rock. what is it?

    gmc - you always have such fun sounding and productive weekends planned!

    sari - what's the name of your photog? hopefully you can make small downpayments.

    lindsay - hopefully a buyer comes soon, everything happens for a reason.

    Hi Dana,
    Pastel deTres Leches translates to 3 milks cake. I first had it while I was living in San Antonio.  My BIL's family is from Mexico. If you google "Tres Leches" you will find all sorts of recipes'. It is a very dense, moist cake, almost custard like. Basically cake soaked in 3 different milks (evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk & heavy cream). 
    My planner and I checked a bunch of places and this was one of the only ones who had even heard of it.

    I can't wait to have some more this weekend!!!
