I hate that loooong weekends go by soooo fast! Finally taking a minute to sit and relax. I have some ribs in the oven and sticky rice soaking…yummm! Pics and recipe to come. I have not cooked or baked in so long. I have been slacking for sure!!!

I have found my wedding DRESS!! I LOVE IT!!! Sorry you will have to wait until the wedding for pics. I confirmed my reception place on Friday and got my wedding papers from the church! I am getting so excited 🙂 I have been doing a lot of wedding stuff this past week, shopping, online ordering, talking with a caterer, venue, centerpieces, etc. So much fun…in fact I like it so much I think I want to do somethings with weddings when I grow up.

I do have a slight rant to make. I am in a friends wedding in August so we went to look at dresses for the bridesmaids today. We got the worst service ever today! Weddings by Design is where we went and our consultant was Natalie…yep that is how mad I am, I am dropping names and I am blogging about it! Long story short, the consultant was the rudest person I have ever meet and the service was horrible! We didn’t even want to stay and give them our business, so we left. We have already found the dress at a different store thats further away but worth the drive. I used to work in customer service so I am pretty critical when I get bad service. I also understand the importance of recognizing and sharing good experiences. So in order to balance out the bad, I will share the last GREAT customer service I got. I went to Gateway Market to get some bacon, cheddar, jalepeno burgers but they were out 😦 but the guy at the meat counter went and made some from me while I shopped and then came out and found me when he was done! How nice was that?

Ok off to finish dinner. The ribs are starting to smell wonderful!!

Yes I have another 3 day weekend coming up! I have Friday off!!! But that is what I get when I carry over vacation days! 🙂 We have to use all our carry over days by April 1st of the following year so I  have 5 days to get rid of from 09. Such a hard thing to do.

Today it snowed again! When I was at work, schools started to get out for the day because of the weather, I was a little skeptical but when I walked out to my car…ugh couldn’t see and it was soooo cold and windy! That is when I decided it was the perfect night to stay in and do nada.

I was busy this weekend doing a lot of online shopping and regular shopping for wedding stuff. Fun! I know a wedding date would probably be nice…but we are working on that.

Food day tomorrow…gotta go whip up something delish! I need to only used ingredients I have on hand because I am NOT going to the store tonight. Should be fun to try to figure it out!

I ♥ 3 Day Weekends!

Again another busy weekend!! Started with a little girls dinner, followed by a little girly fun 🙂 So Happy Birthday D!! Saturday, Joe and my parents went to look at wedding reception venues!! Both were equally wonderful so I think the decision is going to be hard. Super fun and exciting! Then Joe and I had a wedding for one of his cousins. It was at the Temple of Performing Arts. I had been to other events there before but this was my first wedding. It was really very pretty.

I just saw a tv commercial for a new show with Kelly Cutrone! I love her! Some might think she is mean but I love her straight forward attitude and how she tells you how it is. Can’t wait for this show to start.

Off to workout! Go Me!! And then relaxation for the rest of the day. Um ok…relaxation and bridesmaid dress shopping…workout tomorrow?

Tackling Mt. Laundry tonight! You would think that with 11 days off I could have done at least 1 load of laundry. Unfortunatly thats not the case, so I am working on it right now. Today was my first day back after my hiatus and, knock on wood, it wasn’t too bad! I only came back to about 50-60 e-mails, shockingly low. I have to admit I was feeling very refreshed about work, yay!

I must be feeling very productive tonight because I finished a special art project. Now I am working on some belated “Thank you” eek! Sorry!!

Happy New Years!!

I spent last night ringing in the New Year with wonderful people at a friend’s house. Now that is my idea of a celebration!! I hope everyone had a wonderful start to their New Year! Just a goofy pic of me from last night 😉

2010 is looking to be packed full of weddings! CRAZINESS…so far Joe and I have 6-7 weddings to go to, I am in 2, and chances are we will be getting married too! No date has been set yet. I am still kinda waiting to have finalized dates of the weddings I am in before we make our decision.

I can hardly believe that my mini Christmas break is almost over! These days have flown by and I have been so busy. Its been a fun busy though, filled with family and friend time. Its just a reminder how important family and friends are.

So far its been a great start to 2010 (nice lazy day just for me)! I can’t wait to see what the year holds and am excited for whats to come!!!
