I have been at my job for a week now...and it's going pretty good!! My body isn't used to have to go to bed or get up at certain times, but hopefully it will adjust soon. Slowly i am learning how to do more and more at work, the first couple of days were pretty long. Of course i was just standing around watching people! Pretty excited to get my first paycheck this week....YAY!

Shower Fun

Who doesn't love a day when it's all about yourself and you get presents!! I know i sure love them!! I had my shower on Saturday and it was a blast!! Got to see some family that i hadn't seen in a while...so that was great!! Thanks for coming everyone that came!! Got some great gifts. If only wal-mart could figure out how to work their registry...we got a lot of doubles at this shower!! O wells though. I'm so thankful for everything that my sister Trina has done for us...she is pretty amazing!

The tables were decorated with our engagment pictures, silver stuff, and pink petals--super cute!! We had some delicious cup cakes...shaped like a diamond ring (B you are so crafty). It was just a pretty fabulous day!! I can't believe how quick everything is happening!! AHHHH!

Shower #2

I have my shower this Saturday that my sister's are throwing for me!! I am so beyond excited...family, family i haven't seen for a LONG time, friends, and presents---what more could a girl ask for?!?! I am super excited to see the cake, i think B has something very cool picked out! She is a pretty great sister...she kinda spoils me :-) I LOVE HER BUNCHES!!

Working Girl :-)

I start my new job tomorrow and for those of you that know me know that this is a pretty big deal! HAHA! I'm not much of a people person or a working person...i am pretty excited though. I will be a "cordinator" (supervisor) at TJ Maxx here in Grand Island. I think i will like it because i love to work in retail, and believe it or not customer service! I can be friendly when need be! So with this new job and doing everything that still needs done for the wedding....i think time is going to FLYYYYYYY by! So certain people out there i'm sure you'll be getting some crazy stressed out phone calls from me! :-)


Josh and I finally started to work on our invitations tonight! Figure they should go out in a couple weeks, and that won't happen if we haven't done them! I think it's going to be a long process, but we will both enjoying doing it. We have tried to make as much as we can for the wedding ourselves...more personal and way cheaper! So be looking in the mail in the next few weeks! YAY!

So pretty

We can make another check on our list of wedding to do's. Got our tuxes all picked out today...we think they're going to look pretty fancy!!! The only thing now is getting all the "guys" into to get fitted---think this is going to be more difficult than i would like it to, but what do i do!

I feel that "bridezilla" in me creeping out more and more everyday! I wish people would understand that this is only going to be ONE day out of everyone's busy schedules, and if it's to big of an burden.....you don't need to be a part of it! Get your priorites straight, Josh & I are only going to be married once! Whoa...now that i got that vent out of the way i feel a little better!

So long....

That Josh & I will finally be starting our workout routine (well me for sure). This is what our New Years resolution is, we were supposed to start that Sunday, but it just didn't seem to fit into our schedule!! HAHA. I keep starring at my wedding dress in our closet and i have set my first fitting up for Feb. 1...i would like to be a lil more tone and skinny by then!! Not to skinny though because i don't want to give David's Bridal anymore money than i need to!! They suck there! Hopefully my arms will be more tone, so there is no disgusting "flab" hanging over the dress!! Wish me/us good luck!! If all goes well i will give weekly updates, but we will have to wait and see!


We finally went and picked out our flowers for the wedding on Friday!! Anyone who knows me, knows that there is no love between me and a flower! Have never been really big on them...i can probably only tell you what a rose, daisy, and tulip are...IF that! I do think that they are going to be very cute though...Andy at Roses for You was VERRRRRY helpful! Good thing he knows Josh or i probably would have drove him crazy during our meeting!

I know i have said this many times, but i can't believe how fast time is flying by!! It seems like the wedding is right around the corner, and we still have a ton of stuff to do!! I'm sure the bridezilla in me will peak her head out sometime soon! :-)

Got Cake??

Josh and I spent a very long day out at the Events Center here in Grand Island for the Bridal Expo today, and got to have a lil fun too (well Josh did anyway). The grooms could fill out a card at the door and have it put into a box, the lady at the didn't tell us what it was for at the time. After walking around for a little bit a lady Josh knows comes up to him and ask him if he is ready for the cake eating contest!! You should have seen the look of horror!! Needless to say there wasn't been grooms out there so Yes his name did get called!! In one of the cakes a plastic ring was hidden and if you found it in your cake then the prize was a necklace from Riddles!! Joshy didn't have the cake with the ring, but he did get some nice "haul" rope!! He loves me 100% after forcing him to go with me today!!! HAHA he was not impressed, he said the cake was gross!! He sured looked pretty with it all over his face though! If you watched NTV tonight you could have caught a lil glimpse of him!
