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!

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.

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 ;)

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...
