Wedding Preparations and things

Hey guys!

Well this week has been a very long week! Well this past weekend I worked every single day, and I had a project due this past Tues. Well I wasn't able to start on it guessed it....Monday! I worked 12 hours on the project, I only took short breaks, and one hour long break to eat dinner and watch Heroes :) So that made the week soo much longer!
This past Saturday I put in my 2 weeks notice at work. It is sad that I have to leave, but it is just WAY too much with trying to go to school full-time, trying to plan a wedding and work. Which I usually only worked the weekends, which is when I would get the planning done. So my last day is the Saturday of the shower (Nov. 8th) My last day that I am scheduled is that Friday before. I work tomorrow and next Friday and that is it! I would have worked there 2 years this March!
Anyways. Joey and I started recieving gifts in the mail!! :D Which is VERY exciting for me since I love getting mail, and I love it is doubly awesome lol The presents were from my mom's friend in Corpus. She has been friends w/ my mom since I was in daycare. Her daughter and I went to daycare together and grew up as friends. The daughter, Jennifer, also sent us a present in the mail :) Which it says that something else is being sent separtely :) Oh from Karen (my mom's friend) we got our vacuum and our comforter :) And from Jennifer we got the pretty silver sheets we signed up for :) I am so excited about my shower coming up! I think they sent the presents bc they might not be able to come!
I talked to my brothers today, Justin and Matt, it was nice to hear from them. They live in I haven't seen them in about 5 yrs. They are thinking about coming to the wedding, which makes me really happy :D I got to hear the newest addition to Justin and Christie ( not sure how she spells it :) ) family....he babbled a little, and I got to hear my niece say Hi :) They sound so cute! I am excited for Joey to meet them. I do have 1 more brother, R.D. or Richard :) I hope he will be able to make it too!
Wow this is a long post... I'm gonna go play WoW or something :) Have a great day!

My busy week

Well as most of you know that I had a pretty crazy time this week (referring to last post). I am so happy that today is over and I feel so relieved. My test in Curriculum and Instruction was not that hard :) My project for Language and Cognitive Dvlp. (of Young Children) was not that was just time consuming. I gave my presentation tonight and it went well. I of course forgot somethings to say, but that is normal :) The only thing I really have to do now is a a project making a yearly lesson plan. I have the Fall semester and my partner has the Spring semester.

The honeymoon stuff is coming along awesomely :) Joey found out that we don't really have to get a passport for the cruise! YAY! I was so worried that we wouldn't get our passport in time for the cruise. I have talked to 2 different people, one it took forver to get her passport, the other just took a few weeks! Anyways the only reason we would need one is we were to fly back to the US for some reason. Passports are not required for cruises until Summer 09 :D Joey just informed me that he just paid for our cruise today :D We are to have a room with a balcony!! I am so excited! I have never been out of the country or on a cruise, so this will be an awesome exprience! :)

Another part of good project I had in one class got pushed back from the Thursday before the shower to the Thursday after :) So I won't be stressed when I go to the shower. This shower is thrown by Patty, Peggy, Jeanne, Nita and Debbie. A bunch of people lol! Patty, Peggy, and Jeanne are from Joey's family...just in case you don't know and Debbie and Nita are good friends with my mom. Debbie has known my mom before I was even thought of :) It will be fun!

I realized that all my posts on here are long, Im sorry I just have a lot to whoever reads these things :) Well have a great day! :)

So much going on!

Hey guys!

One day someone will read all these and think I am crazy for basically posting to myself! lol Oh man I have so much going on this week! It all started going crazy yesterday. Yesterday I was supposed to meet a partner for a project that we are doing in one of my classes. We were supposed to meet around 4 I thought...long story short she never showed. I finally get a hold of her, and she tells me that she won't even be in class this week. So the project that is due Thursday...this Thursday I will have to do by myself!! This is quite a time consuming project! Then I have a test on Thursday also. Then I find out today that our project in another class, where we have to make a lesson plan for a whole year, is due this coming Tuesday!! ACK And this whole weekend I have to work! Everything is coming due it seems like! So today when I left school I was so majorly stressed out. I met Joey for lunch and he was so awesome that he calmed me down and helped me realize that there is nothing worth stressing over :) He is so awesome and I am so excited that I am going to be his wife!! Less than 3 months away! YAY!!

I had a ton of fun at my shower that Brittany threw me! :) And invitations are already sent out for the one that Joey's family organized for me! :) I am hoping by then school will be calm down just a lil! Even though the semester is coming to a close, and things will probably only get crazier! But the good thing is that almost all the major things are taken care of for the wedding! :D

Joey and I decided to not send pictures in the invitations, thank goodness bc we would have already had to take the photos or get them rushed (which right now I would hate to take them bc I have bad allergies and my nose is all red!) So that is such a big relief, we can just order the invitations and get them mailed! We just have to go taste-test the food and get the invitations ordered this month sometimes. The pictures can come a little later :)

Off to studying!

Hi everyone!

Even though I don't think anyone even reads this yet :) I am so excited about tomorrow! Tomorrow my best friend and Maid of Honor, Brittany (Meyer) is throwing me a shower!! :D It is a shower just for my friends, since I'm not having a bachelorette party I thought it would be fun to have a shower with just my friends :) I am so excited to have all my friends be all together! I might post some pictures later. It's kinda like a birthday party, but your friends are more willing to come b/c it's not like you get married every year! lol And the fact that I don't even have birthday parties, makes the occasion when all my friends come together even more special!

Today was a good day. I got to go shopping. Finally got my watch has been about 3 weeks since the battery died!! Went to go see Joey at work :) Went to the bank. Then came over to Joey's apartment. I am going to organize a lil closet he has in his dining/living room. It's going to be the technology closet :) That way all his cables and such will be organized for him! And plus Daisy won't be able to jump from her lil tower- play thing, to the table, on the plastic drawers( which is going to be in the technology closet), on the counter, and onto the kitchen counter! Well by the time I get the drawers out of there she can probally jump from the table to the counter. I think Daisy is entering into her jumping onto high places phase! That should be interesting! lol

I forgot to mention that Joey also has 2 turtles. Tardy and Nibbler...Tardy from Greg the Bunny and Nibbler from Futurama. Both boys. They are so entertaining!! Nibbler will be sleeping peacfully and Tardy will swim by and kick him in the face! They both like the corner facing the TV. I don't know if they are trying to watch TV with us, or if they are attracted to the light. But they both fight over the corner.

When Joey and I get married there is going to be 2 cats (Daisy and Yao), 2 turtles (Tardy and Nibbler) and 2 hermit crabs (Penny and Sheldon) in our house! lol It's going to be interesting! But I don't mind!!

Well I better get to organizing! Have a great day!

Ebay experience

Earlier today I told you how I was bidding on the love bird wedding cake topper. Well about a few minutes before the auction was about to close (I was winning it previously) the other bidder decided to bid. And not just a little bit over, but $5 over the bid I placed.

So I just decided to give up. Well about 10 minutes after it had ended, I was checking my email and I got an email from Ebay telling me the seller was giving me a second chance!! :) I guess they saw me bid on the same item a while back that they had (they have like 50 of these toppers) so they decided to give it to me for the last bid I bidded trying to win it from the other person :) So I just paid for it and it will be here soon!! YAY! I am so excited! I thought it was a cute and different wedding cake topper!

You can see a picture of them on my later blog: (I love this picture!)

Well have a good night!


So as of right now Joey and I are less than 3 months away from getting married! :D I am so so excited!! We still have to taste-test the food, order the invitations, and take engagement pictures, but they will all get done :) The legs for the bedroom furniture Joey's parents bought for us finally came in. So the bed actually has a frame, so Joey doesn't have to sleep on the box springs and mattress on the floor lol

Today was a nice day! Class got out early for spiritual emphasis week, so Joey and I ate lunch together..BBQ it was nice! There were 2 (or 3) really cute kitties that hang out around there. I would love to take one, but Daisy or Yao wouldn't like that (depending on where I took it!) Daisy= Joey's kitten. Yao= my big kitty :D I went to Petsmart and got Yao and Daisy a feather stick...a stick that has a feather on the end...they like them. Poor Yao his feather stick has been MIA for some time now! lol It was adoption day at Petsmart and there was a cute lil white fluffy puppy!

I am not sure yet what I want this blog to be about...either something for our family to read before and after we get married, or Joey will create one too and each of our families can read... I thought it would be a cool idea :)

Back to wedding stuff (sorry my brain jumps around...ADD) For about 2 months now I have been trying to bid on these love birds cake topper for either on top of the wedding cake or somewhere at the wedding :) Anyways each time I bid for it I get out bid!! The first time, I was new to Ebay and was not sure how it worked, so I just bid like a lil over the bid that was already there, well Joey taught me what to do. :) The next time I made a high bid at $15.00, the bidding usually starts at $9.99 for the birds. So I was winning it until 5am the morning before the bidding was about to close. GRR I was determined that I was not going to pay over $15 for it, but as of right now I bidded on another one at $18. The item is getting sold by the same ppl, some wedding supplies company, so it keeps getting reenlisted...hopefully I will get one!! I am hoping I will win it on the auction that ends today! So far that has been my adventure with Ebay, sorry if the story was boring, I thought it was a lil entertaining :)
