well I have been n holidays now for over a week and it has been so nice! Had to do so much running around for my BFFs stagette before the weekend, but it was all worth it! So much fun!
To DO: get Cranium! such an awesome game! Loved it! My BFF literally had to be held up to walk back to the vehicle after her night of dancing...too funny! It was so fun~we danced til 2am :)
great friends, wine, food, laughs, location! so fun!

Wh had out Christmas edition RoF last night and it was so great. We had a secret santa gift exchange and it was so fun. Great keeping intouch with all my co--workers from our old unit...they are such a wonderful bunch of ladies (and a gentleman!).

Somehow however last night, I picked up a head cold and I am not happy about that! I feel crappy :( And I am thinking lots about my dear friend R...you know who you are...hopeing everything is ok!

My FIRST order and a night from _ _ _ _

I recieved my very first SU! order and I cannot wait to start using it on my holidays...Although I have to cardstock or pretty paper, so I better go buy something to use! :)

All I wanna do is purchases a whole bunch more stuff! (so bad)

Last night was so busy, but I was very preoccupied in thought, so maybe that is why it "felt" so busy...some people have no clue how and when to bring something up...something hurtful and it really sticks with me for extended periods of time. Sad.

Soooo! I obviously need so cardmaking time and a good shop, time with frinds and family to cheer me up! I am so very thankful for my close friends...you know who you are ;)

Woah-I have been a bad blogger...just havn't felt like blogging...

So, November has slipped away, so fast. My sister and I are talking all the time and she is doing so good :) I have missed her so very much. It is her birthday on Dec 3rd, I need to think of something good to give her. I have an idea....ROCKSTAR!

-Fiance had his 32nd bday on Friday and he has began to dislike birthdays :( I got him his fave old fashioned candy from England (in a jar customized by the store owner!) Among other stuff...He had a good day :)

-My BFF's stagette is fast approaching! I have so many little details to finalize and a few more little things to get. Whistler is going to beautiful with all the Christmas lights! I hope it snows and we can have our SLEIGH RIDE!!!

-I am listening to Michale Buble's Christmas music at the moment-love it ;)

-Work is going well, absolutely love the group I work with. I think it is going to be important to debrief soon though, some young patients...tough stuff.

-All my paperwork has been sent to the Uni-will I be a MASTER? lol!? I guess I will find out in April sometime...

-Wedding plans are coming along so well! I love my fiance and planning our wedding together! xo
-Thanks to my dear frind R, I have spent $200 on Stampin'Up! stuff! and boy took me and my fiance forever to decide what to get...can't wait for it to come!!!!

-We are going to see the FabFour tonight-a Beatles tribute group, so excited! LOVE the Beatles :)

Well again time has slipped away. Some good stuff has been happening!!

-I have talked to my sister at long last (I have missed our talks and hanging out)

- the new unit has opened at work :) My official first day was yesterday, and it was busy but good. Nice little unit with lovely staff...lots of laughs and good times.

-Some bad news: Lenny Kravitz cancelled his show yet AGAIN and we missed out. I now have $200 that I have already spent 3 months ago...hmmmm....well it can be used for many different things: stamps ect, shoes, my BFF's wedding stuff (I mean comon! I need a new outfit for her getaway in Whistler! Come to think of it I need a new jacket and boots! See the money is already spent...again!

Been feeling kind of reflective about friends and what I think is a true blue friend. Unfortunately, I think some people are only there when they 'need' you or need something form you in particular. I really hope that my unconditional rule of friendship will get me through this...

Rapid Review

The last week and a half has been a blur. Orientation for THPCU was all last week and really, it was great overall. This week we went to other site to see how things were done there and well some things left little to be desired!!! Glad it is all over and I have a good stretch off! Had a fun dinner with the girls from work-they are so wonderful!

One week until Lenny Kravitz-can't wait!!! He is so great live :)

My card making class was awesome and I bought a few gently used SU stamp sets-so excited about that! I made 15 cards and they are so pretty!

I am struggling with writing my Letter on Intent and wow, is it stressing me out. All things worth having ans doing are never easy!

Wedding Invitation Fun!

So, my Fiancee and I went to the big scrapbooking store today in town and bought the vellum for our invites :) 40 sheets of the stuff!! Of course we had to look for a Thank You stamp for our favors...we found a really sweet one. And it fits the tags R and I made perfectly! Love it! We also bought a versa ink, white and antique pewter stamp pad to play with. I in my stamping virginity, forgot to buy a stamp cleaner and a pad wiper thing. Oh well...I also found a sweet scrapbppking ablbum in Tiffany blue with a really sweet scalloped edge and a big white ribbon!

And guess what else? I am going to my first card class on Saturday to make Christmas cards!!! So fun!

So I must thank my friend R for all the inspiration as well as my buddy T for hers as well!

I am so excited to start cardmaking and collecting stamps!

Childhood Dreams and Life Lessons

" Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted" Dr. Randy Pausch

I laughed out loud when I read this line in his book The Last Lecture. It rings so very true in my world...
This is not a book about dying from cancer, it is a book about LIVING with cancer and the importance of leaving a legacy for loved ones.
Seriously, please get this book and start reading it today.

Just a reminder of my love for baking...

Love, Life and Planning

I have a bit of catch up to do! Been busy with Thanksgiving and catching up on my wacko sleep patterns as of late. Thanksgiving was so nice! Had 2 turkey dinners so I am still full from that and the family time was so awesome.

My fiancee and I are in full swing for our wedding. We were crunching numbers and updating/revising our guest list. Somehow 10 more people have been added. I emailed the decor place as I need to add chair covers and sashes. A bit stressful, but its all gonna work out. We are now trying to figure out how much darn ETOH we will need for the big day. Beer is difficult to est as my sister ran out of beer due to the HOT weather in June and well, we do not want a repeat of that. Nice warm weather and enough beer to go around! We are also meeting up with the DJ this next week-so fun!! Oh and p.s. I LOVE my dress!!!

I have been a bit sad as of late thinking about my sister. Haven't talked to her since the summer...I am really missing our old relationship, and maybe thats why I am so low lately? I want my sister back, give her back to me and release her from your evil grasp.

I am missing seeing my nieces and nephew as much as well...They seriously make my world go round. Adorable and so hilarious.

New phase of my career is beginning as well...THPCU orientation begins on Monday and I am blessed with such great co-workers. "To what is to come!" *klank*

I love my fiancee, he makes me laugh and smile and feel all warm and fuzzy inside. After 12 years and 7 months...I still feel ike a school girl in love.

I forsee a new hobby!

My wonderful friend has pretty much got me hooked...on scrapbooking/card making. Last night (on night shift break) we made 110+ favor tags for me & my fiancees wedding in June 09. Never thought scrapbooking would make me feel like a complete weakling-that darn tag cutter-you need to be pumped up to use it....at least I tried! What a great job when you can make tags on a break, listen to tunes and laugh-alot! I love my job and scrapbooking stuff ;)

"Say you wanna be startin' somethin', you got o be startin' somethin" Michael Jackson


here we go now!

Well, this is certainly a new endeavor for me. I have lurked on many a blog, have a few friends that blog, and secretly always wanted to start blogging. Why? A place to dream, debrief, vent, brainstorm, brag, laugh and plan (or plot?). I am bound to blog about my career, friends, love (fiancee), family, favorite things, wedding plans and my nieces and nephew of course. So let the blogging begin...
