One Week

Just one short week from today I will be a Mrs.  I am so excited.  I am so happy I found my one true love.  He is the best!  I love him more then anything.  I will be his WIFE!  W-I-F-E!  Isn’t that exciting.  I have a few more things to get done, but I am well on my way to being done.  I can not wait until Saturday gets here.  It is going to be so great to get away from here!  It will be so awesome to be on vacation (getting married) with my best friends and favorite family!

Oh speaking of favorites……Look at this baby!

LOVE THIS ONE!

Busy Night

Tonight Pete and I ran alot of errends.  I had forgotten my purse today and couldn’t go to the bank during lunch time.  Afyer work I picked Pete up and we went to the bank and to the Mall and to a few other stores.  we ended with dinner and we just got home.  I am so tired.  As soon as we are done watching survivor I am heading to bed.  I have a bunch of new stuff to cross off the list!  Pete got his dress shirt tonight along with 4 “Wife Beater” tee shirts, a new belt and some new underwear.  We then went to the store and I got 6 pair of underwear and 2 new bras.  Pete also got a New York Giants and I got a purple tee shirt.  We should have everything we need for the trip now.  I want to start laundry and packing tomorrow.  We also want to squeeze in a date tomorrow since Sunday we are spending time with Alyssa and cleaning the house.

It’s Shrinking

Well I got a few more things done tonight.  I also have NOTHING new to add to the list today!  YAY!  The meeting with the Caterers went great!  We got all of our RSVP’s in too.  We are having 153 people.  It is going to be a great time.  20 tables!  I also found out that I do not need to slice 50 limes the day before the party (part of the centerpieces), the reception hall will slice them all for me.  YAY!  Pete upgraded one of our beer choices, we are having Coore’s Light (for my Dad) and Sam Adams (for the “real” beer drinkers).  I also got them to switch out the wine for a Amaretto Sour Fountain, for free!  YAY!  My favorite drink in a cira 1980;s drink fountain.  I can not wait.  I wish I was off work the next day, but I should stop being greedy since I am off for 16 days in a row!

We also met with our photographer tonight.  He was nice, but boy can he talk.  I think he wants to be Bff’s with us.  He said like 3 times that he is the same age as Pete.  LOL  What can I say we are likable people.  I am so glad we got a Photographer for our party.  It will make things great, not to have to worry about taking 100’s of pictures all day.  I will be able to enjoy the party.

Well my list is below, I rearanged it to make it easier to read.

Alyssa

I have been so busy lately I have not bragged about my sweetie!  Alyssa is getting so big, she weighs around 18 pounds now and is so active.  She crawls all over the place and is pulling herself up all the time.  She is such a big girl.  Her first tooth broke through today.  Bottom Right.  Thank goodness…she has been miserable.  She loves her Aunt Lisie and Uncle Pete so much.  We don’t see her with out her giving us big kisses.  She loves kisses.  She kisses her Disney Princess Backpack all the time and her favorite thing to kiss is her reflection.  She kisses it in mirrors and on the shiny coffee table.  LOL  She is talking up a storm.  Most words sound like Ba Ba Ba, but she also says Diaper, Ma, Da and Popeye (my dad).

I will leave you with my new favorite pictures of her….LOL  Laura was washing the Door and stepped out to do the outside of the door….Look who was looking for Kisses:

AlyssaLOL...It's all I can say!
