A Beautiful Saturday

Today is Melanie’s wedding. It’s been a hott minute since I’ve seen her or any of the Fab 5, so I am super pumped to see everyone today!! =)  I’m excited for Melanie. I think we’ve both found really awesome guys that make OUR and THEIR lives better… instead of guys who need us to make themselves “better”.

I’m coloring my hair right now. I think the color is called Toasted Caramel? Toasted Almond?  I dunno… Close to my natural color but with blonde highlights.

The weather is so beautiful, I can hardly stand being inside. The only reason I’m inside right now is to do my hair before the wedding. Charlie and I laid out for about an hour this morning. It was so so so nice. He was super cute, too. He’d play with his bone for a little bit, and then flop down next to me and lay in the sun with me until he got too hot.

Time to go rinse. I’ll have a full report & pix from the wedding tomorrow. Also, tomorrow is the Walk!  Love you, Baby Jayden!! I’ll have the latest news and pix from the walk, too!!

OH Boy

First off: Happy birthday, Big Lou!!!  Glad I could share in the celebration with you.

On to other news:  There isn’t any.

Oh wait, yes there is. Nothing major…. just been moving into Jason’s house — going well. I have my room picked up and chores done, so does that mean I get my allowance??? Me think, YES! 😉  Also… started a class on the Book of Daniel at The Creek on Monday nights. I’m super pumped about it. I’m eager to LEARN STUFF, imagine that.

Everyday is an adventure with Sir Charles (aka Charlie the Pup). Charlie had his rabies vaccination on Monday afternoon, and it damn near killed him. I’m not exaggerating. I know, I tend to over exaggerate things, but this is for real. He was NOT moving, hardly breathing, couldn’t even get up to pee. It was sad. Took about 24 hours and he snapped out of it. Now he’s back to crazy and annoying us constantly. Thankfully, he’s perfectly content to wrassle with his toys for hours on end. Today he decided it would be super fun to run away, with me trailing behind yelling “Charlie STOP” all around the neighborhood. The kids out front thought it was hilarious. I,however, did not. I’m pretty sure Charlie was laughing, too, once I caught him. He’s such a jerk.

Newsflash: Jason is in the living room watching basketball……………………. ……      ………………….

…………… …………….                   ………………………..

and I’m all by my lonesome in the office twittering, playing Sorority Life (sick, horrible, sad addiction — please don’t laugh) and trying to get Boom Boom Pow out of my head. Earlier I had Right Around stuck in my head, and I guess I traded it in for some Black Eyed Peas.

I haven’t been blogging much lately. I’m not certain why…. I guess I haven’t had much to say. I certainly have had enough time on my hands to do it. A lot of times, I’ll blog when I’m upset about something. I’ve been really super relaxed and mellow lately.  No stress.  =)

Good times.

Sunday is the March for Babies (March of Dimes). We’re super pumped. Our original goal was to raise $300 as a team….. $1,000+ later, we’re kickin seriously BOOOTAAYYYYY.  Rock on Team Jayden!!!! =*  Our sponsors are my heros! Love you!!!!

G’night blogger world. This little girl is off to bed.

To-Do List Eaten By Housepet; Owner Relieved

I always survive life much less damaged when I have a To-Do List. Lately it’s been like being in a hurricane, probably because I didn’t have a written-in-stone To-Do list to work from.  But I feel like the winds are going to calm down soon.  As soon as I chisel that To-Do list.

We made a big change to the wedding this past weekend. After working really hard to find the $$ to pull the thing off, I found out that I’d be losing a pretty good chunk of my salary due to cuts.  That basically eliminated all possible funding I’d have for a big local wedding, and it was actually a big relief to not have the money to do it. The wedding was turning into quite the big affair, and honestly … I just want to be with Jason. I don’t care to have a big show with tons of people. From the beginning we said we wanted something small & intimate. Something that shows off our personalities. We’re not show-stopping, flashy people… so how are we going to get married, you ask?  LOL  In Flashy, Fabulous Las Vegas!

We’d thought about Vegas a couple different times since getting engaged (and before that, too) and it just makes sense. We don’t want to spend a bunch of money. We don’t want to have something huge. We just want our most important family & friends there with us. And our trip to Vegas was already planned and paid for. It was just a matter of tackin’ on a quick wedding! =)

So back to the To-Do List. I have a lot @ work that needs to get checked off. Tomorrow I’m going to wrap up the design phase of at least 2 eCourses I’m working on. This weeks is very busy with various meetings and appointments. Hopefully next week I’ll have plenty of time to dedicate to my To-Do List.

In the meantime… I’ll attack the list whenever I have a few minutes free. So, back to work for me!!

Playing Catch-Up

So I’ve been totally slacking on the blog lately. It kinda seems like if I’m in a good mood and things are going well, I have nothing to say. Apparently I blog when I have things to complain about.

The only things going on in life right now is wedding planning, work, and keeping up with Charlie. I spend the grand majority of my time with Jason, of course. We’re going to start working on organizing and painting his house so that I can start moving stuff in.

Last weekend we visited Jason’s cousin Jordan in Cinci, and stayed at her boyfriend’s house. We went to Funny Bone Comedy Club in Newport Harbor to see comedian Jeff Dye. He was hilarious, and I got a picture taken with him after the show.

In medical news… I had a upper endoscopy done last Friday to see what’s going on in my tummy. Nothing major to report. There’s the possibility of ulcers, but nothing really obvious showed up.

Things have been amazing with my Captain Awesome. We always have so much fun together, whether we’re just hanging out at home, out shopping, or out on the town. I smile constantly because of him. He’s my everything.

Well today I laughed pretty hard and I must share it with you. If you haven’t yet seen these videos, you are certainly missing out.
