Confession Friday!

I confess that making bows and thank you cards are my new hobby.

I confess that I am disappointed in the Royal Wedding.  I guess it just wasn't what I thought it was going to be.

I confess  I am bad at letting Khaos jump on me when he shouldn't.

I confess I haven't walked all week (the weather hasn't helped).

I confess that I cleaned out the computer room and I don't have to be embarrassed to show it to people now.

I confess I am not ready to start class again on Monday.

I confess I still can't believe I got 100% on my research paper.


I wanted to show a picture of a bow I made (all by myself) for a birthday present.  I have made them for Christmas presents in the past and for some reason I never thought to make them for other presents.  Now I just need to get some different color ribbon so I can start making more.  I think I may have found a hobby that I like.  Let me know what you think!

Day 12

A picture of something I love
I love coach purses.  I use them until they start to fall apart.
Some people think I am crazy, but I never pay full price for one.
I can get them so much cheaper at the outlet mall.
I don't know what it is, but there is just something
about them that I love.

Day 11

A picture of something I hate
I HATE spiders!! It doesn't matter low big or small
I hate them all.  It doesn't help that Joe hates them to.
Neither one of us even wants to get close enough to them to kill them.
I would be very happy in a world without spiders.

I had Easter at my house this year because I was on Ambulance crew and figured it would be easier just to have it here.  Poor Joe had to work, (at least he was making holiday pay).  I had my family and Joe's family here.  We had a good time with LOTS of food.  We did an Easter egg hunt inside since the weather has been so great here lately.  I don't think the kids really cared where they found the eggs at.  Everyone seemed to have a good time, I will post some pictures when I get them from my mom.

Day 10

This is suppose to be a picture of the person I do the most fucked up stuff with, but I can't think of a person for this.  It could be Joe, or Nikki, or someone from my past.  I can't say that I really do anything fucked up anymore.  I think I may have settled down some, but I am OK with that.  I am happy where I am in my life.

Day 9

The person who has gotten me through the most
My Mother!!
(I know she is not going to be happy I picked this picture)
I can't even imagine where I would be without my mom.
She is the person that I talk to at least everyday,
sometimes multiple times a day.
I love to spend time with my mom even if it is just sitting at the house.
I think I am lucky to have her for a mom (and to be the only daughter).
I love you Mom!

Day 8

A picture that makes me smile
Joe and I both like to go four wheeling.  We don't get to do it very often,
but we always have a good time when we go.
I like that I can wear sweat pants and no makeup and not have
 to worry about what I look like.
Hopefully we will get to go again soon.  With all the rain we have had we won't
have to worry about not having enough mud.

Day 7

A picture of my most treasured item
My engagement ring!
I wear it everyday and I love everything about it.
Everyday I still find myself just looking at it.
I feel lost if I don't have it on, I can't wait till I get the wedding band to match.

Day 6

A person of a person I would love to trade places with for a day.
If I could trade places with anyone (and I had the body they do) I would
want to trade places with a Victoria's Secret model. I just don't think
they have that hard of a job, maybe I am wrong.
But I think I would give it a try.

Confession Friday

My friend told me about confession Friday, so I thought I would give it a try.
Ya I know it is kinda late on Friday, but better late than never.

I confess that I had my nephews stuff the Easter eggs that they are going to hunt on Sunday.
They have no clue.

I confess I am waiting till the last possible minute to clean my house before Easter.

I confess I am so ready for this bad weather to be over with.

I confess I am going to try and do some "Spring Cleaning" next week since
 I am on spring break from school.

I confess that I really want a new COACH purse. 
I have even had a dream about being in the coach store.
I am so ready for a trip to the outlet mall.

I confess that Mom and I finished making all the picture frames and
candy boxes for the wedding reception.

I think this is a good start for my confession Friday's.

Day 5

A picture of my favorite memory
 I love to go to Cardinal's games.  Thanks to my finace Joe we have season tickets and I get to go a lot.  I know I might be spoiled.  I have never been to a world series game, hopefully one day I will get to go.

Day 4

A picture of my night.
I know I cheated with this picture.  It is not from tonight, but I did spend it with my nephew.  He didn't want to go to his sister and brothers ball practice so he called his Mimi wanting to come here.  Of course I said yes.  We played playstation, watched a movie, and played fetch with the dogs.  My sister-in-law Nikki and my nephew Collin came and we met Joe and Nick at Happy Day's for some ice cream.

Day 3

A picture of the cast of my favorite show.
Grey's Anatomy is my favorite show.  I have watched it from the beginning and have seen every episode, most more than once.  I know this isn't a very exciting Day 3 post, but here it is.

Day 2

A picture of me and the person I have been the closest with the longest.

My Sister-in-law Nikki

Nikki came into my life my freshmen year of high school.  My brother and her got married in less than a week when they found out he was getting deployed to Iraq.  I didn't really know her when they got married, but she became my sister while he was gone.  We have became really close and don't know what I would do without her.  I can always call her anytime I need anything and she is always there.  She is going to be the Matron of Honor at my wedding. I can't wait to hear her speech (she doesn't like to talk in front of people), but I am sure it will be good.  I can't imagine my life without her.  I love you Nikki, thanks for always being there.

My First Post!!

Ok, I am going to give this a shot.  I thought doing a blog about planning for the wedding and what is going on in our lives would be an easy way for everyone to keep up with us. 

Of course Joe works non stop, between the Police Department, Cencom, Lindenwood, EMS, and Class, oh and now cutting grass, there is not a lot of time left to do much. 

I am going to school Full time for Nursing, I am almost done with my first year.  I start my Nursing classes this fall and can't wait.  The sooner I start Nursing classes the sooner I will be done all together.

 We or should I say I have been planning most of the wedding.  Joe pretty  much agrees with whatever I want.  We have the church, hall, photographer, DJ, photobooth, chair covers, table decorations all booked.  I found my wedding dress and the bridesmaids dresses, still have to figure out what the flower girls are going to wear.  My mom and I have got a good start on making the candy boxes and picture frames for the wedding reception.  The only big thing we have left to do is pick out a cake and flowers, but we still have plenty of time.  Sorry if this was boring, I will try to make my next post better.

And please keep your fingers crossed for me that my brother Josh will get to come home for my wedding.  I am not going to get my hopes up, but I am keeping my fingers crossed!!
