Poppa Aylor

Ya'll send out a big prayer for Poppa Aylor. Seems that his sickness was worse then we all thought. He's having surgery today, so say a prayer that the doctors work their magic, and that the problem will be cured, and that he will have a speedy recovery!

Im praying!

Best meeting ever!

Well, every now and then I meet with my past co-workers from Logos Bookstore and we have lunch across the street from my work at Golden Corral. I just got back and man I am full!

It is always good to see them and hear updates that I would otherwise never hear.

Gene - now on his 100th PDA, (NOT public display of affection) still loves Diane and cheese.
Marie - Getting loving from the base singer in Signature Sound (Yea, he's discussed most of the good ones are either taken or gay, so I suppose that I am one of the lucky ones)
Karyl - Just fresh back from a trip to Florida, daughter heading off to college next year, little boy now sporting glasses and just as cute as ever!

Plus Gene's daughter Michelle and my Mom joined us, and it was very nice.

As always they asked about my wedding plans and I was more then happy to oblidge them with the details (I kept it short though...I really can go on and on...)

So I have this horrid headache today that has kept me from rolling through my work as fast as normal and that irks me to no end! We have way too much to do w/out me going and getting a headache!

Plus I called Lucas to tell him that I wasn't going to the gym because I felt bad, but then I felt even worse because I told him that I wasn't coming and proceeded to call him back to tell him that no matter what I WOULD BE THERE! Darn indecisiveness!

Oh well...maybe a little workout will help...if it makes it worse I can always stop!

Gotta run!

Sing Song - "You'll Love Davids Bridal..." Davids bridal is having their annual $99 dollar wedding dress sale right? So what I am wondering is...will they have another one before I get married next August? And if I do wait till the next one, will all the dresses be fall/winter dresses? Are the dresses that are on sale now the ones from spring/summer? I am getting married in August, so I want a spring/summer dress...but it's soooo early to be buying a dress...darn you Davids Bridal!

In other news I have an eye Dr's appointment today at 2:30 so Mom drive me to work and dropped me off so she can pick me up and take me because they normally dilate my eyes. Plus I am going to try and get fitted for contacts. (again)

I remember last time I went they dilated my eyes and I didn't realize it, and I walked out into the sun and it was like BAM! I did manage to drive myself home, but that was it...I had planned to go back to work but at that point I had to call in because the chances of me being able to see my computer screen where slim. I tried to get fitted for contacts last time also, but they told me that my eyes where bad enough for a stronger prescription of glasses, but not contacts...I was like what the heck?

More updates: We're moving work that is. Our department is the ugly redheaded step-child of the company, so they throw us around wherever they like to make room for more people. So for the 4th time since in this office (mind you we've only been here since last August) sometime this week or the beginning of next week. I think the funniest part is...we are moving back to our original spot that we had when we 1st got here...

Well I think that I am going to make today a good day no matter what!

My good throughts for the day are:
I am getting off early (@ 2 - YAY)
I am marrying the man of my dreams - I loves ya Lucas!

...grumble grumble grumble...
That was not only my mood but my stomach grumbling.
I feel miserably bloated and fat this morning...go figure since I didn't eat last night...or this morning...

Lucas - Dad said that I didn't warn him about the PMS, so I guess this is your warning...

So much to do...

Wow so this has been a busy busy day so unfortunately this post will not be very long...but I just wanted to give a shout out to my friend Samantha who had GBS like me and has lost close to 200 pounds! Way to go girl!

In other news (heh) my managers birthday is tomorrow and that means that tonight will be filled with running to pick up the huge (probably won't fit in my car) cake then taking it home and trying to shove it into the house (probably won't fit into my fridge either) back to work to decorate her desk once she leaves (lucas my love...uh...I forgot to tell you about this one...i'll be calling you later) then to pick up Lucas and then to my future uncles house for some music! I must admit that I enjoy the last one best so it will be a nice way to end a very busy day!

Hope that yours is good!

Why do I love him?

I love him because…

He’s always funny
He loves oreos
He will eat my cooking
He lets me get away with anything
He does not let me do anything that will hurt me
He encourages me to go to the gym
He tells me that I am beautiful
He smiles when I smile
He holds me when I cry
He knows when to talk and when to just let me cry
He wants to marry me
He is happy with steak or tuna helper
He understands me better then I think he does
He has blue eyes that feel like they can touch my soul
He’s a huge superman fan (Even before the movie)
He has introduced me to things that I never thought that I would like
He changed the time on his computer to military time because he works for the navy
He’ll come over to my house even though he is allergic to my 2 dogs
He is the son my Dad never had
He never lets me forget that he loves me
He leaves replies on my blog
He’s not afraid to work
He is good with money and I am not
He went to college
He’s providing me with a stable future
He doesn’t pressure me into anything
He’s gets grumpy when he’s hungry
He is great with kids
He’s strong enough to pick me up
He lets me drive
He can see through the bull crap that I often give
He tells me when he doesn’t like the smell of something I have on
He knows that I worry too much
He doesn’t worry about much, but he said that he worries about me
He’s allergic to my favorite perfume
He’s going to Gatlinburg, TN for our honeymoon because I wanted too
He almost always wins when we play a game
He lets me gripe and whine
He is a big fan of ducktape
He plays with Legos
He and I have known each other since we where really little
He helps me feel like a little kid when I get too big for my britches
He looked past my appearance when we 1st started dating
He’s been with me through my 180 pound weight loss and 2 surgeries
He will do anything that I want too
He plays with my hair

You mean to tell me I have HOMEWORK?

Well...turns out that I have homework tonight. I am taking these management classes at work, and they gave us homework! Plus, I got to read this stuff on e-mail etiquette and take 2 quizzes. My manager said that everyone that has e-mail has to do it and that since we are so busy at work, she wants us to do it at home. So I got 2 pieces of homework to do this afternoon...yuck...that's why I didn't go to college because I hate homework...ooh least I am getting some good training out of it!

On a side note - Lucas got his hair cut yesterday and he looked sooooooo cute at church! Of course he looks good all the time to me! I love you Lucas!

Ok...if ya'll don't know the image above is of one of my all time favorite singers in the world! His name is David Phelps.

Well, I got an e-mail from my buddy Marie that I used to work with and she has invited me to go with her to a David Phelps Concert in Maryland on October 14th!

I haven't been to see David Phelps in concert for a long I am really excited.

Trying too hard...

Does it bother anyone else when you see someone who might be up for promotion, or a better job totally sucking up and trying to hard?

There is this one lady at my work who applied for a manager position and ever since then she has been going out of her way to perform her job all the while pretending that she's already a manager. All that I have to say is thank God that I don't work in her department. One should always put their best efforts forward, and prior to the position opening up she was not...if I was a manager I would see through the bull and go for someone who is still doing their job as they where before instead of trying to take over.

On another note, here is where Lucas and I will be staying for our honeymoon - It's called Mountain Loft in Gatlingburg...I may have mentioned that before...but oh well...on to the pictures...

From what I gather we will be staying in one of the little houses "Villa or Chalet" and not the actual hotel looking part.

Another view of the villa:more...
This is the main part where the pool is:
Aint it pretty?

The funniest part about the whole thing is that Greg (The guy who hooked us up with this place) and his wife are going to have to go with us. Yes, you heard me right...they are going with us on our honeymoon. Turns out that you have to be 25 to sign in and well, i'll be 24 and Lucas is younger then me, so Greg has graciously offered to go with us, sign us in and then leave us and he and his wife will stay (Some place else) in Gatlingburg for their vacation. LOL! I love it! I really think that will be good because Greg knows where this place is, and though I have no doubt that Lucas could get us there, it'll be nice to be able to follow him so there will be no worries at all about getting lost!!!

Dragon Weather

I am entirely engulfed in this new book that I am reading.

It's called Dragon Weather and it's by Lawrence Watt-Evans.

It's about a young boy who looses his family and is sold into slavey in the mines.

I never ever thought that I would like this type of book, but I an totally into the plot. Infact, as I sit here typing., i'd rather be reading. I had said 100 times over that I would never like this type of book, but once again I was wrong. I figured that a book about mystical creatures would be hard to read, and therefor I would get lost, but it's not and I haven't.

I am only to page 57 out of 553 and I am already totally hooked. If it had not been for Lucas, I would not have started reading this book, so I must send my thanks and love out to him for that. Yes honey you told me so.

From what I gather from the authors website this is volume 1 in a series of 3 books. I am already thrilled to think that the story can go on for 2 more books.

Click here to go to the authors website about this book and the others.

Well, back to work!
