Winding down!

Hi Everybody! lol I am so excited because school is starting to wind down! I have these 3 days this week, then a crazy full week...then finals! Then FREEDOM! Well at least for a month :D I still have a lot of work to do, but I'm at the point where I am tired all the time! So this Thanksgiving break is much needed! Although I still have to be doing homework during the "break". I am trying to start projects ahead of time that are due next week, but then the classes I'm going to this week give me more homework due Wed. So it is an interesting time :) I figure my getting married and the honeymoon will be the reward for all the work this semester!
Since my last post:
- The wedding cake lady that I mentioned in my last post canceled on us.
- We went and test tasted the food for the reception meal.
- My mom and I went and taste tested cake, from a different place.
- The invitations are getting mailed out :)
- Went to get fitted for alterations

So the story with the 1st cake ppl. My mom said that they called and informed her that they has too many weddings that day and that they would not be able to do ours...then they said that they would be closed until the 5th. I was disappointed, but we found another place to do it. The other place seems to do good cakes. I didn't like the fact that they gave my mom and I like an inch of cake for the both of us to sample! I guess I was hoping for a lot of cake eating! lol I looked at the pictures of the cakes they have done before and I found a cake that I liked. I never knew how expensive wedding cakes are!!! It is crazy! But the cake I picked out is a "reasonable" price ( I still think it's expensive) and the cake will be really pretty!

Here is the picture of the tiny samples, the rough drawing the lady did and the picture of one that has already been made:

This is what the cake will look like except the details will be in a dark purple(one of my colors) that way the all white love birds will stand out on top of the cake :) The piping in between the layers will remain white as the rest of the cake :)

I went and got my dressed altered. It will be ready Dec. 19th :) There were so many pins in the bottom...the lady looked at me and went "too long...way too long" lol I had I think my first dream about something being wrong with the dress. I figured the dreams would start coming soon...the whole walking down the aisle naked dream will soon intow! lol

Oh we went and taste tested the food for the reception...that was fun! We got enough food to try to take home left overs! YAY! We decided on the Chicken Parmesan :) I am going to go talk to him tomorrow to tell him!
We still haven't taken our engagement pictures, but I think we are going to do that Dec. 6th. I think that is all the wedding stuff we have done since the last post! I've been trying to wash and put up the gifts that we recieved. That way when I do move in, they are all there for me to use :)

Well I am sure this post is really long! I just have a lot to talk about :)
Have a great day!

Wedding Shower and Yao moving

I had the big wedding shower yesterday! Family, friends, and family friends was a lot of fun! I smiled so much my face hurt! lol It was the shower I have previously talked about that was hosted by Peggy, Patty, Jeanne, Debbie, Nita, Megan, and Bethany! :) It was just a ladies, but Joey and some of the guys came over afterward to eat some cake. We got so much stuff that it took up all of Joey's SUV!! For those of you that weren't there, we got our bathroom taken care of; we got our dishes, and a lot of cookware :D I'm excited about using it! We got a lot of nice things! Oh and the hotesses did such a great job incorporating our colors into the shower...they even got a purple(ish) beta fish for a center piece!! So we now have a fishy :D

Yao has offically moved over to Joey's now. I took him over to have a play-date with Daisy and realized that it would just be better for him to stay instead of traumatizing him by moving him back and forth! It's also nice because Daisy and Yao are already getting used to each other. It takes a few days, but this way they will be so used to each other by the time we get married! Another good thing is Daisy's random feet attacking has stopped! She just now randomly attacks Yao! lol It's funny to watch them!

The wedding day is getting near and I'm just getting more and more excited!! The invitations came in this past week, so we will need to be sending them out soon! School is getting crazier, but I knew it would. I don't know why but it always seems that the teachers wait until the last part of the semster to have everything due! ACK! But I only have about 4 weeks left! Then an awesome whole month off! :)

Well that is all! Have a great day!

Hooray for daylight savings time!

I am so grateful for Daylight Savings Time and gaining an hour of sleep! I thought daylight savings was last weekend though, I woke up and my cell phone had already changed, and somehow my alarm clock got an hour ahead! I didn't figure out what happened until I got to work...Daylight Savings was moved!! I thought that was a weird statement.

I went to go see my dad yesterday, I talked to Cat about the flowers and the decorations. It was exciting, I like talking about the wedding, so being able to talk about it so much was nice :) I haven't been there in a while bc of work, so it was really nice to see them!! :) They have some more cute kitties, which made me want one, but I figured Yao would not like to be ganged up on by the 2 younger kitties......well actaully it would have just been too many cats for the space :)

We have received more presents in the mail :) And I just got word from the seller on Ebay and my love bird cake topper is going to be coming in this Tuesday :D I was starting to worry about it! I am getting very excited about the shower coming up this Saturday! :) Cat (my step-mom), Ms. Paula, Kim (both Cat's sisters), Nana (their mom), and Jessi (my step-sister) are all coming!! :D Nana is coming all the way from central Texas to come to the shower!!! So that really makes me happy to hear that they are coming! :D

Well that's all the random things that are going on w/ me! Have a great day!
