Oh What A Difference....

OH what a difference a week makes! I am completely zen about everything wedding at this point. Things are quickly moving alone. Registered check...shower invite sent out for family shower...check (even though they are SO HIDEOUS!)'d think this was my wedding. HA! So yes, I am now completely at peace with everything. The bachelorette party FINALLY has a date, although we're having to change locations...the weekend we wanted to go to Nashville Vanderbilt has a home game...every single hotel is BOOKED! It's pretty crazy. So once we get a destination set we should be good to go. :)

I have chosen the invitations for the shower I'm helping on with my future sister-in-laws sister. And let me tell you...THEY'RE FANTASTIC! I am so incredibly excited about them. :) I think they're really going to love them. And they're so much better than a piece of paper printed on a printer with a palm tree on it (and no I'm not kidding). :)

This upcoming weekend (Labor Day) is going to be fantastic! We are going to the lake with my brother and his fiance, and hubby's brother and his partner. SUPER EXCITED! We already have Saturday night planned as Mexican night with some friends who will also be down there. Margaritas and Mexican food YUM YUM YUMMY! Then on Sunday, it'll just be us and my brother and his fiance, I think we're going to head over to the state lodge to eat a buffet dinner and just chill. I'm so excited I can hardly stand it. :)

Well, I guess that's all for now. I have to get ready to go home. I'll talk to you soon!!

I'M SICK OF DEALING WITH WOMEN! PUT YOUR BIG GIRL PANTIES ON AND QUIT COMPLAINING!!! my title pretty much puts it all out there. Here is the brother is getting married. Great. He has met a wonderful girl who I love very much, and am so incredibly excited that she will be a member of my family. HOWEVER, the wedding planning process is about to do me in. The organization on a scale of 1-10 is -500, we are trying to squeeze in two showers, and a bachelorette party between now and November. Well thats a long time you're saying...doesn't seem to be a big deal...WELL... it is. My lovely sister-in-law to be (who I do love very much) wants everyone to be able to attend everything. Which in theory is great. In reality not so much. People have lives, and things going on, and things come up. So the only weekend everyone in the bridal party is available for her bachelorette she had something planned. She said not an issue I'll rearrange. Great. Apparently, not so much because this morning we received an email from her sister saying how horrible it was that THE BRIDE was having to not go to something she had planned. Which in an ideal world wouldn't happen, but the fact of the matter is SHE (the bride) wants everyone to be able to attend. However, HER SISTER is making me not want to do anything until it's time to board a plane to go to Florida for the wedding. We (the bridesmaids) have already received a facebook message from the sister regarding wedding planning....we are not to even bother the bride with talks of showers, shoes, and bachelorette parties, all correspondence is to go through her (sister). I just really feel so incredibly put out, here I am in someone else's wedding, and am not to talk to them about said wedding...WHAT?!?!

So here I am....frustrated, and wanting to say something, but not sure about it, I don't want to speak for everyone, because who knows....maybe I'm the only one who feels put out by this whole thing. But I'm not a person who can just sit by and let someone's childish antics dictate my feelings. I'm not going to do it. Oh Lord....

Why offer with stipulations???

Okay, so I am totally confused. I thought when you offered to do something nice for someone, that's what it was. A gesture to show your support, and love for the person you are offering your niceness to. Why then do people offer to do nice things but with strings attached? I cannot figure it out. I have never offered to do something for someone, and then tried to control it, regulate it, and tell them how and when they can have it. I am so freakin irritated right now. I mean how dumb is that?? WHY OFFER AT ALL?!??!

OH yeah...

And...I keep buying baby stuff on ebay and hiding it. You should see the closet. It's getting ridiculous!


Just got a very unwelcome visit from my aunt. Hubby's response: "Don't worry....we'll get 'em next time". Gotta love what it must be like to be a man....

Tired Tired Tired

So yeah....not that we had any sort of a crazy weekend or anything, but I'm pooped! Friday after work we met at the grocery, did a little bit of food shopping, and then headed home for a dinner of leftovers. We hung out, watched a little tv, and went to bed extremely early because....

SATURDAY we got up at 6:20am! I have decided to join Junior League, and had to be there at 8am, and hubby decided to go to bible study with my dad at 7am! Needless to say, by the time I got home at 1 I was so incredibly tired. But no time to rest....hubbys cousin had dropped off her daughter for a while, so she played with the dogs and watched tv (such a good well behaved kid...seriously...the best) hubby and I enjoyed our lunch, and then cleaned and I made some cookies. Then later on that afternoon we had some of my cousins over for the FIRST OFFICIAL COUSINS COOKOUT. :) It was a good time. Everybody brought something, and we just hung out. It was just really nice to not have anything structured and to just get to sit and enjoy visiting with everyone who was able to make it. After they all left, I took a shower and was ready for bed seriously at like 7:30, but we had our neighbors over, and wound up not getting into bed until 10. I was like let's sleep in tomorrow.

Apparently sleeping in means 7am, because that is what time I woke up on Sunday. Then my head hurt, I couldn't fall back asleep, hubby was up by 7:30, so we got up and got the puppies up, and started to get ready for the day. Well..I say that, hubby mowed the lawn, and I watched tv all morning. I just couldn't get myself motivated to do anything because I was so tired, but I knew if I fell back asleep I would be useless for the afternoon because I would be GRUMPY. So we watched tv, and then left the house at 2:30 to go to his company picnic. It was down at Slugger Field. It was just ok. The company was not so much. Fortunately, hubby's brother and his partner had invited us over for dinner last night. That was a good time. We had some fantastic food, and even better company :) By the time we left there we wound up getting home a little before 10! We were going to let the dogs sleep with us, but they kept barking so back in their room they went!

So that's our weekend in a nutshell....nothing horribly exciting, definitely fun, and definitely short. Yesterday morning was rough...hard to wake up, and apparently it was also hard for the dogs because they were pooped!!
I'll talk to you later!!

Happy Tuesday!

So... I think I figured out the whole pregnancy test thing....if you take it too early then the hormone doesn't show up! Right??? enough about that......

Well, I had a fantastic weekend. My hubby and I went to the lake. It was probably the best lake weekend of the entire summer. Nice and sunny, hott....but worth it. Super nice to just sit in the water and lounge on my float. We went for a boat ride, and that was great. :) On the way home (2.5 hour drive), it took us 3.5 hours! The 127 yard sale was this weekend. For those of you who don't know about it, it is a yard sale that spans Hwy 127, from like West Virginia all the way down to Alabama or Louisiana or somewhere. Now, to get to the lake, you are essentially on 127 the ENTIRE time. I mean people like slowed down by EVERY SINGLE yard sale to see if they wanted to stop. Seriously! You would go from like 55mph to 10mph in a split second! It's ridiculous. PULL OVER PEOPLE!!

This weekend is going to be fun too. Friday we have nothing, which I always like because you get home from work and just feel like relaxing. And I'll have to go to bed early because I have to be somewhere Saturday morning at 8am!! I have decided to join Junior League, and for those of you who don't know what Junior League is, it is a group of women who do service work, and fundraising to benefit different charities. I'm pretty excited about it. They're a nation wide organization, so even if you don't live in Louisville, your city should have a Junior League. Houston for example has one. :)

After my Junior League meeting I'll have to hurry home and start getting things ready, because hubby and I are hosting a "Cousins Cookout" for my family Saturday evening. Everyone is bringing a dish, and we're going to hang out and just chill out. It should be really fun!

Then on Sunday we have hubby's company picnic. In the past we have gone to such places as Huber's Orchard & Winery and The Louisville Zoo. This year we're going to Louisville Bat's Stadium for a Bat's game. I just hope it's a good time. My favorites are when we go to Hubers...I love Hubers. I'm hoping when my sister-in-law comes into town in October we can take my nephew up there to pick a pumpkin. :) That will be super fun.

So...I guess that's all for now. Talk to you soon!

It's 5 o'clock Somewhere.....

Here I sit at work....3:43pm on a Friday afternoon, and am just COUNTIN down the minutes until it hits 5 so I can head on my weekend way. :) This weekend should be super fun. Hubby and I are heading to the lake. Just us, and our two fur babies. I cannot wait. The weather is supposed to be gorgeous, I'm going to stop and pick up some yummy stuff for the weekend on my way's going to be fabulous!

On another longer purchasing $1 store pregnancy tests. We had a coupon for I think First Response or of those ones that says they're better than the others....and so I picked up a couple of boxes at WalMart last week. I haven't taken a single one. I'm extremely proud of myself. Although...I must does that exactly work?? I mean I get the concept...pee on a stick...or pee in a cup and then place said stick in cup....but my question soon can you take a pregnancy test? The one I have says it works up to 5 days BEFORE your missed aunt flo....but if you have the hormone shouldn't it tell you anytime?? I just don't get it. I am DYING to take one....I want to really really bad, but I think fear has taken over. haha! I dread change. I mean I am super excited to be on this journey that I'm on, but fear of the unknown has definitely taken over...

On a random subject change, I found a new blog at the beginning of the week. I started back at the beginning, and read the entire thing (2 years worth) in 2 days. It was like I couldn't walk away from the computer. It is written by a woman named Rebekah, and it is her and her husbands story of infertility and adoption. I mean I laughed, cried, and felt just about every emotion under the sun while reading her blog. She is an amazing woman, and her faith makes me want to be a better person. My greatest fear has always been what if I can't conceive....but after reading her blog, it makes me feel like even if I can't conceive, it will be okay. I know I am destined to be a mother, and there will be a baby for me. So yeah now that I got all like crazy....I'm gonna go finish up some work so I can have a fantastically carefree weekend. :)

So funny story called I totally forgot to mention my nephews birthday!! He turned 1 on Saturday. We were SUPER SAD we couldn't be with him, but fortunately thanks to technology, we got to watch him open his presents that we got him, and also we got to watch him mash his cake. It was so neat. I swear, this new lap top is one fantastic purchase! Everyone should have a webcam if you live away from family. Seriously!!

What a Weekend!

Okay, so yesterday I ended with my arm being sore...I'll get more into that in a minute...but first I want to tell you about my awesome weekend!!

First off, Friday night I went with one of my girlfriends to dinner followed by The Ugly Truth with Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler (YUMMY). The movie was seriously laugh out loud possibly piss your pants fantastic. It was so hysterical...I would go and see it again. I tried to convince my hubby to go back and see it with me sometime, but he informed me he can't stand Katherine Heigl. Which by the way I do not understand at all. I love her, and I loved her ever since I saw her in that movie The Hero or My Father the Hero or something like that. AND THEN she was in that Disney movie Wish Upon a Star or whatever. I really liked that one. Ahh...such a cute film...sort of a freaky friday type deal. So yeah....back to my weekend and less of Katherine Heigl. haha...good to know though I figured out this whole upload a photo thing huH?? back to my weekend. Saturday I had my Cheer Clinic....well, on Friday my bestie called me up and asked if I could keep her 4 month old for the day. She and her husband have their own business, and were going to be tiling a bathroom or something like that. I checked with my co-coach, and little J-man came with me to the cheer clinic! He was a complete angel the entire time. Watched all the girls wide eyed...hilarious. He even napped! WHILE THE GIRLS WERE DOING CHANTS! No one could believe it. Needless to say, I think I am going to really enjoy coaching. The girls are so incredibly adorable, I am anxious to get the football schedule so I know when games are, but apparently CSAA is pretty bad about that and you don't get the schedule until the week of the FIRST GAME! Insane??? I think so! yeah...holding Baby J on Saturday = Sore arm for Me!
Sunday we didn't really do a whole heck of a lot. We worked a puzzle and watched Funny Farm, went to my parents house for dinner, finished up laundry...and that was about it. Yet today I am EXHAUSTED. :) OH la vie!! Or something. :) Thats all for now...back to work I go. Talk to you soon!!

Things aren't always as they seem.....

So yeah....funny story called I now have a new plan as to when and how I'll "tell" my husband. He came up to me yesterday and said "when it comes time for you to take a pregnancy test I want to be with you". I was like "why? I have this super cute idea of how I"m going to tell you." And he responded with, "Well, it's not just you trying to make a baby....we both are. And I want to be involved in everything."

Well, that about made me cry. So of course that is the new plan. BUT...I did show him the cute little outfit I had purchased that said I love Daddy on it. So we have it hanging in the water closet, so when I take a pregnancy test if it's positive I come out holding the outfit. Still cute...not what I envisioned, but still cute.

OH...also, I saw a friends baby in a facebook photo the other day, and she had on the cutest onesie that said "I LOVE GRAMMIE", and apparently they got it at some store in Lexington that will print whatever you want on them. I think I'm going to pick some of those up as a way to tell my family. That would be super cute. :)

Well, anyway, I just wanted to blog about that while I had a second...I"m sure I"ll be back tomorrow to talk all about the CHEER CLINIC that we had yesterday. :) My arm is sore....I'll tell you all about it. :)
