Okay okay already...I had an whoopsie





Yea...I made a whoopsie! I said on one of my other posts that the wedding ws Aug 4th of 2006. As much as I wish that was true...it is not...It's Aug 4 of 2007.

If you check out the post you can see where it has been changed!

Sorry about the confusion...guess Im just really looking forward to getting married and want to hurry it up!

Countdown

So next Friday will be the 1 year count down till the wedding. I am excited and at the same time im kinda like geeze...still another year to go!

So I have asked 3 of the 4 ladies that I am going to ask to be my bridesmaids to be in the wedding and all of them have graciously accepted. I am very glad to have such lovely ladies in my life that want to share this moment with Lucas and I.

Lucas mentioned that I am asking people to early, but on the opposite I think I am asking in the correct time. I mean there is getting them together, fittings, orderings, alterations...yadda yadda yadda...not to mention getting the shoes sent away to be dyed. (BTW if you know that it doesn't take that long to get that stuff done don't tell me..let me feel like I am on track...thanks!) Plus asking them a year early gives them time to save money to pay for the dress...HA! Can't beat that logic now can ya...nope...*cheers self*

So I called Davids Bridal to see if the brides maid dress that I wanted could be special ordered in another color other then the ones it stated it offered on the site and I got a firm, yet polite NO!

Bummer...guess I will just have to opt for another place to get the bridesmaid dresses. I do have one place in mind...it's called "I Thee Wed" and it is like 5 minutes from home vs. the 45 minutes it takes to get to my nearest Davids Bridal. It comes very highly recommended and seems like a nice shop. I was actually told about the wonders of it from a co-worker (One who is NOT leaving...) who is getting married in September. Her designer is Alfred Angelo. I checked out his site and it seems like he makes some really nice clothes for some really reasonable prices. Plus my co-worker said that they ship fast if needed (Not that I need that...heehee)

Well...I better get myself off break and back to work. I'll figure out the dresses I like and post pics later...

5 Variable Love Profile



Propensity for Monogamy:

Your propensity for monogamy is high.
You find it easy to be devoted and loyal to one person.
And in return, you expect the same from who you love.
Any sign of straying, and you'll end things.

Experience Level:

Your experience level is medium.
You probably have had a couple significant loves.
And you may have even had your heart broken.
But you haven't really dated a wide variety of people.

Dominance:

Your dominance is medium.
You tend to be the one with more power.
You aren't a total control freak in relationships..But of course you don't mind getting you way!

Cynicism:

Your cynicism is low.
You are an eternal optimist when it comes to love and romance.
No matter how many times you've been hurt - you're never bitter.
You believe in one true love, your perfect soulmate.
And if you haven't found true love yet, you know you will soon.

Independence:

Your independence is low.
This doesn't mean you're dependent in relationships.
It does mean that you don't have any problem sharing your life.
In your opinion, the best part of being in love is being together.

Take The Test Yourself!

Daniel Powter Has Never Said It Better

"'Cause ya had a bad day..."

I had a really rough day yesterday. I found out that not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4 but 5 people are leaving from work and I am going to miss them terribly!

#1 - Sarah my manager. I have been working with Sarah since I came to the QC Department back in June 04. Sarah recently left on maternity leave and had her daughter Paige. Sarah is leaving to raise her child, and I don't blame her but everytime I think about her leaving I start crying. At least I got to cry on Lucas yesterday night. That made it better. Sarah has taught me EVERYTHING that I know about QC and her knowledge will be missed! Sarah has been with the company for 9 years.

#2 - Edie the IT/IS Director. Edie is the person who told me about this job in the 1st place. Edie and I go to church together and she is a great christian woman. There is NOBODY who can replace Edie at this company, and she will be missed. I might just have to submit a ticket everytime I have a problem now...geewiz! Edie has been with the company for 11 years.

#3 - Kelly the client services clerk. I went to school with Kelly, but I never really knew her till we worked together. Kelly is a spit-fire with a feisty yet friendly attitude. Kelly always smiles and has a kind word. Kelly had been with the company for around 3 years.

#4 - Malika a fellow QA specialist. Malika is the jokster of the department and is always good for a laugh. No matter if she is doing the robot or singing off key (On purpose) she is a hard worker and will be missed. Malika has been here around 2 years.

#5 - Arnie the guy from the ITT on the 3rd floor. I met Arnie when I was going downstairs with a lady from my department on her smoke break. Arnie is never afraid to tell his opinion, and is very complimentative. Arnie tries to be a hard tail, but he's an ol' softy! Not sure how long he's been with his company...

Plus I heard that I think another one of the ladies from out group is supposed to be turning in her 2 weeks soon.

We're dropping like flies people! Nothing out of the ordinary is wrong, just lots of changes and sometimes they are hard to take. Nothing I can't handle, just gotta get through it and roll on.

I don't know why I never thought about posting picture of my ring before! It's gorgous and I am very happy with it - it's simple, but that's how I like it!

Your unique appraisal number confirms the quality of your diamond and is laser-inscribed directly on the Zales Signature solitaire and inscribed in the setting of the earrings and rings.

My New Haircut



So I have been attempting to grow out my hair, so that I can put it up for the wedding in whatever style I like right? Well, I am not one to just let my hair sit and be frumpy - I must...no...I CRAVE new styles. So I went with Mom to her hairsylest for a new style. I told the lady that I wanted to leave it long, but I didn't really care what the style was. Well, when she finished it was GORGEOUS! It was fluffed and flipped and gorgeous.

Unfortunately I had to style it on my own my next day, but I did pretty good and it half way resembled what she had done. I was happy.

But oh this morning...I ran out of time and the only thing that I had time to do was dry it. I not realize that my hairstyle looks exactly like Keith Urban - the country singer who just married Nicole Kidman.


Now don't get me wrong - I still like the cut, but I am just thankful that I have over a year to grow it back out!

The Keys to Your Heart

The Keys to Your Heart
You are attracted to those who are unbridled, untrammeled, and free.
In love, you feel the most alive when things are straight-forward, and you're told that you're loved.
You'd like to your lover to think you are loyal and faithful... that you'll never change.
You would be forced to break up with someone who was emotional, moody, and difficult to please.
Your ideal relationship is open. Both of you can talk about everything... no secrets.
Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.
You think of marriage as something precious. You'll treasure marriage and treat it as sacred.

Bridesmaids Dresses



So I think I may have found my brides maids dresses at Davids Bridal. The only problem is...they don't make them in the color that I want.
I really love the design of this dress, but they don't make it in the color that I want (Pool). I may have to ask them if they can be special ordered in another color.

I did see that I could get a skirt/top combo that looks similar to this in the color I want, so maybe I will go that way. Thankfully I have a lot of time to descide.

Plus, Lucas Mom and family are very good as sewing and have offered to make the dresses if need be and if it is cheaper, so I always have that option, but the way I figure, I need to figure it out ASAP so that they can have penty of time to make the dresses (Just a little over a year left!)

So let me know...what do you think of this dress?
