happy back to work monday  !!!

i had a pretty good weekend. i ate a lot of course, but it was also nice because i got to hang out with people that i hadn't hung out with in awhile. namely, two of my ex roommates, one of my friends from high school, and two of my friends from work. it was nice.

FH went to LA for the weekend for a golf tournament so i took advantage and ran a bunch of errands. i first met up with something borrowed on Saturday morning. they were so sweet! they even made me a sample bouquet with the colors i want.

i even got the quote the next day!!!  they are so awesome. i got two more florists to meet with this weekend so hopefully i will have my decision by the end of the year.

then i was on a mission for xmas card stuff. i tried going to kelly paper in la mesa. i'm so dumb; i almost always call places to make sure they are open but this time they weren't. oh well. at least it was on my way.

i then went to the paperie downtown. that's a cute little store. i thought their envelopes and such were a bit pricey, but still very nice. man i wish we had a paper source down here  

then i met up with my gay ex roommate for lunch. omg he is so funny! we started talking about my new favorite show, desperate housewives, and right when i asked if he liked it, we both started shrieking like little school girls. it was the funniest thing. i love that show!!!

then it was off to find more paper stores. xpedx was also closed on aero drive. then i went to a scrapbooking store in poway. they had some good stuff. but i ended up buying all my stuff over at making memories in mira mesa. they have a great selection of colored papers that i ended up cutting for our xmas invites. i was even able to use their paper cutter! so while i was doing that, this lady to the left of me was putting something through a machine and i saw all these little shapes and i was like thinking to myself, 'oooh what is that?' hehe, you hardcore scrapbooking people are probably laughing at me now...

so last wednesday, i sent a bunch of emails to some photographers and today when i checked, there were a flurry responses! oh yes, come to me, dear wedding vendor responses. come to me!  i love vendors that respond!

I love that sample bouquet, especially the plaid ribbon, so cute! I also LOVE Desperate Housewives, it's my new favorite! Anyways, it sounds like you have so much done you are gonna be stress free by the time your wedding rolls around!

awww today i hopped on the scale and i've gained a 1/2 lb since last wednesday. damn turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, pumpkin pie, and whatever hell else i ate that contributed to that 1/2 lb    well i shoulda seen that one coming with thanksgiving and all. not to worry! i will not let that get me down! 

hmm what else. my goodness, i have 3 vendor appts this friday!  first boucher, then nancy stevens, then greenwell. also i've been doing some thinking about pre-marital counseling. so i had already bought this book that FH's brother in law SUGGESTED we go through, since he is officiating. but i was going through it, and wasn't really digging some of the questions they asked. it made lots of references to the bible and it just kinda made me uncomfortable. FH is catholic and i was raised catholic but for some reason, more recently have not really dug it, but i still believe in God. plus i would totally feel bad about BS'ing some of the answers to those questions. it would make me feel fake and how bad is that to lie to a pastor/minister? i'd be going straight to hell!    so luckily, my health insurance covers counseling so i called up a bunch of approved dr's yesterday and now we have a pre-marital counseling appt for next friday. the lady sounded so nice too and she is super close to both of our works. i am really looking forward to it.

sigh, thank god it's thursday, which is really my 'friday'. woohoo!  something borrowed was nice enough to scan the photo that inspired me to want orangey-reddish with spring green parrot tulips. it is a bit brighter in person but here it is. i never thought i liked tulips but after seeing these, i said, 'i gotta have them!'

i for some reason have been entertaining the idea with wearing red shoes with my wedding dress. and i like the whole layered look for dresses. and the ruffle part on the strapless dress at the top. so since it's been a slow night at work, i drew this in photoshop. body is not to scale, ie i am not that big on top (i wish)

i met with linda rendon (the florist) today and she is super sweet and her prices, man oh man . super fantastic!!!  i am most likely going to book her for our wedding, just waiting for the official quote. she is my last florist to meet with, woohoo!

i have one more photographer to meet with, susan yee. i am hoping to meet with her at the end of january when she moves down. i am also considering boucher and jennifer thomas, both really nice ladies. me and FH started our premarital counseling, which has been very interesting and helpful. i think we should be done by january. not sure which vendor i will tackle next. maybe dj's?  cake's?  videographers (for raw footage only)? i am toiling with the idea of a dessert station or a ice cream sundae bar, yuuuuuuuuum.

i was also telling one of my coworkers how i wanted to make my own invites and he's all, 'have you figured in the price of ink cartridges?' i never knew how expensive they are. grrrrrr!!! so we'll see about that.

this christmas was probably one of the most different xmas's i've ever had. for one, it was me and FH's first xmas in our new home (condo). and one of our good friends from SF came to stay with us, which made for a very entertaining and fun weekend.  also, this was my first time ever buying lamb at the store. very pricey but so worth it for a memorable xmas dinner.
heh, i also drank a lot on xmas eve and had a humongoid hangover the next day  =(   but we went to mission beach and ate at cane's, that was really nice. i love san diego!
so yesterday i got my quote from linda rendon. my deposit will be in the mail by the end of the week!

i've been MIA for awhile. but happy new year's everyone!

as for wedding plans, i have booked linda rendon as my florist. i'm waiting for susan (ocean tsunami photography) to send me a contract to sign. woohoo! i've met with a bunch of videographers. right now we are just interested in raw data and will have a friend edit.  although now i am reconsidering because...

i decided recently that i want to go back to school to get my teaching credential!  yay! i'm so excited!  yesterday i checked out SDSU and pt loma nazarene. on friday i will be going to CSU san marcos.  i want to teach math for middle school kids. so now it's all about paying for education and the wedding and weighing what's more important.   over the holidays i read this book called 'bride in overdrive'. it was an autobiography of a girl that got married and omg, talk about BRIDEZILLA.  it was very funny though and put a lot of things in perspective.

so back to wedding planning, i'm not sure what i'm going to tackle next. oh yeah, i also emailed lorraine kimball about possibly making a dress for me. i'm waiting for her to get back to me. perhaps cake?  mmmm.... CAKE.
