OK…how did it get to be the end of September already!??!

School started on the 6th, then we had Rosh Hashanah so there were no classes on Thursday, and now we’re into week 2. 

I’m so tired right now, I feel like my eyes are all puffy and whatever.  I’ll be so happy when school is over and I finally graduate!  Then I won’t have to worry about this crap!  I’m almost there…9 more months…then it’s 5 months to the wedding and I’ll have all the free time in the world!  It’s crazy.  In only 12 and a half months, everything that I’ve been working toward for the last year or so will be over.  I won’t know what to do with myself!  Right now, I only see it as a relief.  I’ll actually be able to start dancing again, and maybe find a local theatre group to do shows with!  OMG!  What a concept!  An acting student who actually gets to act!  LOL

Well, I guess that’s all for now.  I’m gonna head out to lunch.


Monday – August 27,2007

Another Monday at work.  The first day of the last week of the month.  It’ll be busy so I’ll make this quick.

Last week (8/18/07) we met with the Pastor at South Salem Presbyterian Church and finalized that we will have our ceremony there.  I absolutely love Pastor Nadine.  She is so sweet and easy to talk to.  She said that she would email us some questions that she wanted us to think about that we would go over in our next meeting.

Once we were done there we went across the street to see Megan and also to set up the rehearsal dinner.  Vic had told me that he wanted it at her restaraunt.  I think that’s a great idea.  The food is really great and the atmosphere is very cozy and homey.  It’s a good match for us for the rehearsal. 

Since our wedding is on Sunday we decided to have the rehearsal on Friday night rather than Saturday (also because the church is used for Catholic mass Saturday night).  We decided that Saturday will be a day to rest before the big day.   I think I might try to set up a spa day with the girls and my mom and Angela.   I’ll call Epidavros to see if they have a group rate or something.

Well, that’s all I have time for now.  The phone will probably stary start ringing off the hook pretty soon seeing as it’s almost 11.

 Till next time.

So, we had our engagement party on Saturday.  It turned out well.  It was a crazy day…weekend really.  I got up at 8:15 Sat morning so I could go to the salon and get my nails done and get home by 10:30 am so we could get dressed and leave by 11:45 so we could get to the restaurant early.  Megan got lost…shocker!  But everyone showed up.  We acutally got a lot of gifts.  I was surprised that people bought us gifts like that.  To be honest I was really only expecting checks or gift cards. 

I opened the HSBS online savings account yesterday.  They are still pending Vic’s portion of the application.  That’s probably because my legal residence is still in NY and his is NJ.  At least they said that the over all application is approved.  They will contact Vic via email or phone to get the information they need.

Anway, it was a good party and I’m glad everyone showed up.  Now it’s time to do the thank you cards.  I just need to pick up some more.

Well, I think I acutally finished my registry.  I went out to BBB last night and I was looking at China patterns for so long that when I closed my eyes that was all I saw!  LOL.  It’s such a relief.  The last thing I have to do is get Vic’s opinion on the formal flatware.  That’ll be annoying since he’s so picky.  Whatever…

The engagement party is Saturday.  That should be fun.  I hope we get some money so that we can finally open our joint account.  I think I’m going to open it with HSBC direct since the interest rate is 5.05% and we can mail in deposits if we need to.

OK, so, I’ll start by catching everyone up on what has happened so far. 

Mother’s Day….Mom, Megan (maid of honor), and I went to David’s Bridal to try on dresses.  (Megan had actually already bought her dress, this was for moi!)  Anyway, I loved the first dress I tried on, but I had already picked out others, so I put it aside and kept going.  I think I tried on 20+ dresses that day.  Well, every other dress that I tried on, I kept saying “I like the first one better”.  We decided that it was the one.  I’m so happy, I love it so much.  It really is the best dress for me and I can’t wait until it comes in.

The following Saturday….Vic and I went to my parents’ house for two reasons, one…my mom’s birthday, and two…to look at one last reception site.  While the site was absolutely beautiful (and perfect, for an outdoor wedding…which we didn’t want since the wedding in in October), it was just way to expensive!  If we had booked there we would have only been able to have like 60 guests!  Not exactly what we were planning.   Anyway, same day, we decided to go back up to the Amber Room in Danbury (for the 3rd time) to take another look.  We decided that we really did love it (along with being within our budget) and booked it that day.  I’m so excited and I can’t wait to really get into it all.

 Today….I am off to Bed Bath and Beyond after work to complete the registry details.  I will update tomorrow with that information.
