Things that make me happy



A guy at work asking me if I was going as a "hot redhead" for halloween.

The fiance telling me he's excited about our wedding day and not just the wedding night. :)

1 month

One month from now we will have said "i do", danced our first dance and stuffed cake into each other's faces.

We will have thrown the bouquet and tossed the garter and stolen glances from across the room.

Posed for pictures, kissed babies and grandmother's and cried tears of joy.

One month from now will be the best day of our lives.

i'm stoked.

The best of times and the worst of times

The past few weeks have been a storm of emotions.

Sadness: My grandpa came home from the nursing home but has been to the hospital twice. Today i watched him poop. I'm not talking like I saw him on the toilet, i'm talking i saw his bare butt just letting go of the poop. I've never seen a human actually do that. It was one part disgusting and one part well..mostly disgusting. You've never lived until you've seen a grown man poop.

Bitter/Sweet: We moved all of my stuff from my parents house to Joe's. While it's exciting to start a new chapter of my life and i'm looking forward to starting a new life with Joe, it made me sad to think that I won't live with my family anymore. I know it's weird and i'm hardly ever there. But a piece of my heart will always be there with them. So moving my stuff was hard for me.

Stress: The clock is ticking on our wedding countdown. And the stress is multiplying. Trying to get all my ducks in order and do this wedding right is really really stressful. Good lord. Part of me wishes we eloped.

Fun: My lovely lovely bridesmaids took me to Vegas for my bachy (stealing that term from Nancy). Best. Weekend. Ever. We ate good food. Went to a couple of shows - one that included half naked men the other was the Elvis Cirque show. It was amazing. We went to a couple of clubs. We were the Woo girls. The one thing that struck me was how much these girls (even the ones that couldn't make it) love me. They all wanted to give me the party of my dreams and it really was. I am so lucky to have such great friends.

My bridal shower is Sunday. I can't believe it. My bridal shower. It seems so strange to think that in just a few short weeks i'll be married. Cra-zay.

I'll post more Vegas pics and some bridal shower pics soon. :)

Update: As my faithful maid of honor told me, my bridal shower is Saturday. Not Sunday. :)
