Happy Belated Valentine's Day

I hope everyone had a special day with the special people in their lives, whom ever they may be. I had a great V Day...Matt and I dont usually do much, and we usually dont get each other anything-just special little gestures or love notes or sappy stuff like that. But, Matt really out did himself this year...he got me this...

Needless to say I was shocked...its so pretty!! The diamond is the same cut and the same setting as my engagment ring-he did so good...so proud of him! Then we went and spent the day at the casino (one of my favorite places to go) and had lunch with my sister and her hubby and spent some time at the slots-it was a good low key day, and lots of fun (even though we lost $...bummer) So...how about you? What did you do/get?

My friend Pam is holding a giveaway on her blog http://guidetosurvivingmotherhood.blogspot.com/ she is giving away one of my friend Tiff's pieces! Tiff's blog is http://truetoyoudesign.blogspot.com/ if you want to go check out her awesome stuff and make sure to tell her I sent you!!!

Go and enter the giveaway...do it now!!

Oh and while your at Pam's blog-sponsor her for her march of dimes walk too!

p.s. can anyone tell me how to work my blog? haha instead of posting the whole web address how do i link it to their name? You know what Im talking about?

Its all coming together nicely

So with the wedding only a few months away I have been kinda freaking out how I have nothing done for the wedding...well, its finally starting to come together.

I bought the bridesmaid dresses (my sister Kelli found them and they were CHEAP, my favorite thing!).

My sister Stacey has set up a meeting for me w/ a lady that does cakes in Cottage Grove (plus, she is being sweet and offering the lady photography work for a discount on the cake...discount, YES!), we are meeting with her this weekend...below is a picture of what I think I would want my cake to look like, do you like?

My sister Kelli also found me a DJ-her husband use to be in a band with him, and he is awesome...another bonus...only $200!! (although we will probably pay him more than that)

Matt and I met w/ the Reverend this weekend who we want to marry us-he married Matt's sister, and has done several family funeral services for his family. I was really nervous to meet with him this past weekend, but after meeting w/ him for an hour, I feel so comfortable with him and I am really happy he will marry us.

Anyway, thats my progress...slowly but surely coming together!

What a crap-tacular weekend!

Man, sorry to be such a Debbie Downer lately. Im having a hard time. My best friend was suppose to be home this weekend from her mission trip in the Dominican Republic-shes not home...in fact, she has been in the hospital for 6 days now in the DR. Asthma attack put her there-and they wont clear her to fly home. I talked to her on the phone yesteday and she sounded good, but SO ready to come home. She is going to check herself out of the hospital today and try to get a flight out of there tomorrow. I hope that her lungs can handle a flight home :(

My dear sweet grammie is in the hospital here, she had a stroke, she is almost 90-I havent been able to go visit her lately because she is so frail and I have been sick-I cant get her sick because something bad could happen to her if I got her sick. I hope I can go visit her soon, and I hope she will be able to make it to our wedding :(

Saturday I went to a funeral of a family friend...what a sad day-it was a sudden thing and the woman was so full of life and so loved and her passing was so sudden-it was a really sad day :(

Can you all please keep my best friend, my grammie and the Devereux family in your prayers that would be greatly appreciated

whats wrong with me??

okay, so...I drink A LOT of water...A LOT...I try to do at least 100 oz a day. Odd thing, which may be TMI, but Im super curious about it is...even though I drink a ton of water, dont drink soda hardly (maybe one at lunch? sometimes) and like a half of a coffee in the morning, I dont pee very often. Take today for example, I pee'd when I got up, got to work, drank 3 of my camelbak water bottles full (no ice and 24oz each) and I didnt even pee until 2:15 pm. Tell me, thats weird huh? Any ideas as to what could be wrong w/ me?
