well, tomorrow is the big day. i think i'm ready, despite being super-tired from waking up in the middle of every night this week and not being able to fall back asleep. ugh.
I hope that the shaky weather situation will hold on and give us just one nice day without rain. pleeeeease!!! heh.
um, otherwise it is all just run here, run there. got my fake nails (they look fab), waxed my bushy brows for the first time evah (wow, they look neat), have hair and makeup appointments for tomorrow... Let's rock and roll. I think I am ready.
thanks to everyone who stops by this blog and has put up with my non-book meandering posts. lol. we should be back to normal pretty soon. see you all on the flipside!

Oh yes, my pretties! I am the proud owner of a Kitchenaid Stand Mixer. mwahaha. And to inaugurate it, last night I made a cheesecake. It is sitting lovely-ly in my fridge waiting for our dinner guests to come and partake.
And here is another awesome gift. An area rug! Really makes our living room feel more homey. Sometimes we sit on it to watch TV. heh.
Five more days to the wedding. At this point it is all about last minute stuff and a lot of it has to do with me...my person, my beauty needs, etc. So funny. I am going to get acrylic nails, waxed eyebrows, a pedicure. Makeup. lol.
My parents arrive tomorrow night. Now we are just watching the weather forecast for Saturday. Fingers crossed. :)

It's kind of fun being a bride. People throw parties for you and give you presents and all kinds of things. heh. So yesterday evening was my shower. My cousin and maid-o-honor planned it and we had it at the gorgeous spacious home of our celebrants. (How cool is this, our celebrants are a husband and wife both of whom are ordained ministers and super ecuminical, they are both going to do the ceremony, tag team). Anyways, the wee party was just lovely. We had wine and cheeses, specialty breads, crackers, fruit, brie en croute, yum yum yum.
Out on the patio overlooking the valley, sun setting, good conversation, laughs with friends. It was an excellent evening. Oh and I got my Kitchenaid stand-up mixer, so my life is pretty much complete now. lol. Other gifts include many assorted kitchen tools (which I lurve cuz I like to cook) and gift cards to places like TJ Maxx and (heh) Victoria's Secret.
And now I gotta run because I scheduled my dental cleaning visit for this week (smart, yes?)
