December 2008


Good afternoon! The craziness continues, however, there have been some improvements:   Maggie has a UTI and is on antibiotics.  She'll be fine!  We WERE hit with a $325 vet bill (gag me now!). I have two new shiny tires.   Sarah and I also got our manicures and pedicures this morning.  It felt so [...]


Please Stop the Disasters!!

I woke up this AM and was immediately confronted with two major issues:   Get my front two tires replaced - $225 gone. Discovered Maggie was licking the bottom of the shower because she was so desperate for water.  Future Husband is taking her into the vet at 10:30 because clearly something is wrong with [...]


Bridal Shower (and a Minor Disaster)

Good evening! Sorry I didn't post ALL day! I am obviously in a whirlwind of emotions at this point, so I'm sorry if posting isn't very regular.   My morning started off with a yummy platter of WW pancakes and some real maple syrup. Plus a banana. Then my mother, my maid of honor Sarah, [...]

Busy Bee

I can't wait for my mother and maid of honor to get here! They should both be here in a few hours. :) YAY!   To prepare for my multiple guests, I made a lovely casserole. This a spin on my Santa Fe Casserole.  This casserole contained:   About 3 cups of cooked brown rice [...]


Getting Frantic

Today was truly the first time I felt like I was running out of time.   I needed to get CRACKING on my to-do list.   Before leaving to run errands, I had a snack. My fav! Yogurt + about 3/4 cup of Grape Nuts. Then I got my eyebrows waxed, bought some fake eyelashes for [...]


5:45 AM

And I was WIDE AWAKE.  Maggie woke me up at 5:30 to pee on the rug (WHY??? WHY??? I'm starting to think she has a health issue), and I just couldn't go back to sleep.   I stumbled to the kitchen and was eating breakfast by 6:15. A lovely, basic bowl of oatmeal.... [...]


Bridezillas Sucks Me In

I've gotten a lot of stuff done today (OMG, OMG, OMG.... when I wake up tomorrow, there will be only 5 days left until the wedding of my dreeeeeeeeeeeeaaams).   Dinner was so simple.  Just vegetable soup (from my favorite pervy, Wolfgang) and toast with cheese. All the Wolfgang soups are so delish! I also [...]


Do you remember my wedding decor freakout earlier this month? I said:   This was a major oversight on my behalf, but I completely overlooked ceremony decor.  Our site provides chairs and an arbor, but the arbor isn't exactly great on its own....   Well, my mother came to the rescue!  She bought organza from [...]


I Run Like a Girl… in a Skirt!

I love my new running skirt! Don't worry, there are little shorts underneath!  They are really comfortable and give you a nice breeze.  Plus, how cute is a running skirt?? Meghann and I went for THE MOST TORTOROUS RUN EVER this morning.  I was hungover and tired, and it was about 80 degrees outside and [...]


The Wine Room

Tonight I went to the wine bar with Meghann and my neighbor Michelle. We went to a fun place called The Wine Room, which is a pay-as-you-go wine bar. You purchase a loaded "smart card" and can buy 1 oz. or 2.5 oz. pours of a variety of wines for about $1.5 to $3  a [...]


Refer to…

Refer to Meghann's blog for a few synopsis of what we did today.  We biked 9 miles with Katie and ate similar things for lunch + dinner... I don't want to bore our mutual readers with the same exact story!   And now we're going to go out and have some vino for my Bachelorette [...]


Fruit Oatmeal and New Year’s Resolutions 2009

Morning! I hope you're having a fabulous Saturday morning.  I'm enjoying having the house to myself -- it's kind of like the calm before the storm.  My mother and maid of honor come to town on Monday night!   Breakfast was a simple bowl of fruity oatmeal. My oatmeal contained:   1/2 cup oatmeal 1/2 [...]



I have a veil!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, you aren't suppose to really be able to see it! :) I need to keep some secrets. The mall was insane.  It was a torture I would wish on no one. After some grocery shopping, I made a big mid-afternoon snack of yogurt, blueberries, and granola.   This is my [...]
