Great Weekend!

So this weekend was pretty darn great!  I got my wedding band.  It is so pretty and I love it oh so much!  There are 7 diamonds across the top separated by little bars.  It’s four round diamonds and three Begets.  The same two shapes as the side of my engagement ring.  Isn’t it great!

My Wedding Band  My Wedding Band


Yesterday I was supposed to go to Nikki’s to visit with Ryleah and Nikki, but I was up all night with an upset belly.  I think I must have ate something I shouldn’t have at Katelyn’s First Communion party.  But it was good that I didn’t go because my uncle (the one who owed me money for my Grandmother’s house) came over with $2,500 for both my sister and I!  YAY!!  That is 100% wedding fund money.  My wedding is going to be so perfect.  I am working on little candy bad for the people who are going to dinner with us the night before the cruise.  We are taking our Parents out to dinner as a Thank You/Rehearsal Dinner.  We won’t be rehearsing anything, but I think it is a nice thing to do.  They are spending so much money and traveling so far to be with us.  I also need to start working on our program fans.  I need to order the sparkly paper, ASAP.  We are at 6 months…WOW how exciting.  You know how when you are growing up you picture the guy you will be with forever and ever?  Well Pete is the Great, Sweet, Honest Guy I always pictured I would be with.  Now in all honesty I did picture myself with more of a Handy Man, you know one who could fix anything (Like my Dad), but instead I got an intellectual (Doctor!) who is just as funny as my dad.  Weird how things work out.  I thank god every night when I go to sleep for the life I have been blessed with.

Also this weekend we went to Katelyn’s First Holy Communion.  She looked so pretty!  It was fun and afterwards we went to the party.

 The baby was so good at church and at the party.  I rocked her to sleep.  She is such a good baby and so very sweet.  I am so happy Laura went back to work (sorry Laura, I know you aren’t happy bout it) cause Pete and I get to watch her atleast once a week.  I see her ever 2 or 3 days, but the one on one time is fun.  So is feeding her.  Laura is doing so good with breast feeding though.  When she is at work she pumps and I get to feed Princess with a bottle.  Pete actually gave her a bottle the other night and it was the first time he had EVER fed a baby!  He loves her so much.  It is sweet.  He is always talking to her and giving her little kisses. He is going to be such a good Daddy!

Sunday I was feeling crappy so I slept until my Uncle came over.  Then we went to Laura’s for dinner.  She made a great pork roast.  YUMMY!  We hung out and chatted and had a good time.  Then Pete went home and Laura and I went to Superfresh.  I left there about $175.00 poorer!  Why does healthy food cost so much freaking money!  WHY!!!  It is worth it thought I know.  Here are a few pictures from yesterday.  Aren’t they the cutest!

After shopping and putting away almost $200 worth of food Pete and I played a little Mario Kart on the Wii.  Oh it was so fun.  We really enjoyed it so much!  We did however stay up way to late playing Wii.  So I am sleepy now!


I Got My RING and Other Wedding Ramblings……

I am so excited.  We bought my wedding band yesterday.  It is perfect and dainty and beautiful!  I love it so much.  I have spent the morning taking it in and out of the safe to try on.  LOL  It isn’t any of the rings I have posted.  We got a good deal on it to.  Platinum is pricey!  I am all about good deals.  I am watching the Travel Channel special on the Disney Cruise Line…Yes again!  I watch it like once a week.  I get so excited watching it.  LOL  I am so glad that I picked this as a destination wedding.  I love the idea of not getting married here in Baltimore.  It will be so very hard without my Mom, but I think it would be harder here in her church, Laura’s wedding was so hard and it wasn’t even mine!  I love Disney, all things Disney, I love their attention to detail and my wedding will be a dream come true.  Now that said I am very sad that all of my family and friends will not be there to see me get married.  I will miss my old school friends and my Grandparents so so much that day.  I am happy that My Dad will be there to give me away and my sister will be there standing beside me.  I COULD NOT get married with out my immediate family there.  Pete feels the same way.  Like your day isn’t complete with out your parents there supporting you!  Plus all of my BFF’s will be there supporting me!  YAY!  I am so close, I just can’t wait!  Six months, one week and one day!  That is it!  We still have sooo many things to do!  But I have no fear….Our day will be the most special day ever!

I am so sad right now.  My co-worker and friend is 21 weeks pregnant and today she found out that the baby has a Cleft Lip and Palate!  I am so sad for her and the baby.  She has already named the baby Abigail Reese (love the name).  I am sad that she has to go through this.  She was crying so hard today at work when her doctor called her.  I am sitting here looking at my favorite picture of Alyssa and I thank god she was/is prefect!  Please keep my friend in your prayers today!

A Few More Gone…..

Tonight was our 2nd Weight Watchers weighin….We both lost again this week.  Pete lost another 5.6 pounds bringing his grand total to 11.2 pounds gone in two short weeks!  I on the other hand did not have a stellerweek.  I lost 2.6 pounds bringing my 2 week grandtotal to a nice even 10 pounds!  I was really concerned cause I have done really well, no cheating or anything.  The  told me that since I have my period this week it is expected that I would lose less.  The recommended 2 pounds a week so I was above that, but I still feel a little sad after my huge loss last week.  I am adding an extra day of water aerobics into my workout plan this week to help those pounds drop off faster. 

Animal Kingdom Lodge

I posted lots of pictures of our honeymoon hotel up on Flickr.  Check them out here!  I am so excited to be staying here.

Pete and I were talking during our drives back and forth to DC this weekend about how happy we are that we are Honeymooning in Walt Disney World.  I was a bit worried since I love it so much.  I didn’t want Pete to miss out on a Honeymoon he really wanted.  This weekend he assured me that he wouldn’t want to Honeymoon anywhere else.  Sure there are beaches in Mexico and Hawaii and California; there are islands in the Bahamas and the Caribbean, but after two or three days the beach can get boring.  We can’t afford a world tour to like Paris or Germany, so that is out.  In Disney World we will have days full of fun.  There are rides, shows, 5 star dining, tons of entertainment, night clubs, comedy clubs, exquisite resorts.  Seriously could you ask for more!  I think not!

With This Ring…..

With this ring I will marry the greatest guy I have ever known!

Pete's Wedding Band

Yesterday Pete and I went to get my ring repaired…I had to leave it another week….and we planned on starting our search for his wedding band. Well Pete has giant hands and none of the cool rings are ever in his size, they are all special orders. Well someone had ordered this ring and then not picked it up. Soon as Pete put it on we both fell in love with it. It is really him. It looks like it was made for him! So we bought it yesterday and took it home with us. I can’t stop looking at it.


We found another ring that I like. It is so hard to choose. The ring I found that I like is part of a wedding set. They would have to special order it so we don’t the cost. They are going to contact corporate and let us know next weekend when we pick up my engagement ring.
