So, we are moving forward with our wedding plans! We are planning on getting married at the church out in Otis Orchards and then having the reception at Anthony's boss' house (in his backyard). We are going very relaxed with the reception and doing a big bbq basically. I think this will save us oodles of money and give us the ability to relax afterwards. We're getting married June 20th of next year.

Anthony keeps saying that the wedding is 8 months away.. why am I worrying about it now. Well, I am a planner for big events and enjoy it. Also, from what I've heard.. the earlier you plan things the easier it will be. I hope so. Is 8 months too far in advance for planning things? I've picked out invitations and our "save the date" cards. I've also picked my wedding dress.

I still have so many things to work on... like a budget! LOL! At least we chose a town to have it in already! I have other things to think about... but that will come. For now, I am working on the fun things!

I literally spent two hours working on my new header tonight. UGH! Everytime I get on scrapblog it runs SO slow and sometimes freezes up. FRUSTRATING! No other program does this on my computer so I don't understand the problem. Anyways, I finally finished it and I'm so proud of it! I tried showing Anthony and he doesn't care :( I guess I'm just super proud of myself and I'm bummed that nobody wants to see my work. Oh well... I hope you guys like it!

More pics from today!

What a Wonderful Day!

We went as a family out to the Harvest House in Greenbluff, a little farm town north of Spokane. We enjoyed some good food, yummy apple cider and some great fall weather! Great photo op... I went a little crazy :) They didn't have much of a selection of pumpkins so we headed to Otis Orchards and got a 32 pound pumpkin! It's huge! I'll post some pictures later this week when we carve it.

Kitty has been sneezing a little over 2 weeks now and it became concerning last night when he started bleeding out of his nose after sneezing! We had the vet come and take a look at him tonight... $75 later and all he did was give him a steroid shot and tell us to wait it out!!! UGH!!! On another note, Kitty has taken to sleeping between us at night and last night I found him like this when I went back to bed after feeding Aidan! Anthony had no idea!

What a week!

I enjoyed myself at work this week. I really like the job. I am way better about spending (or not spending) money then I thought I was going to be. All Aidan got this week was a new bath seat, a winter coat, the matching sweats to a sweatshirt we already had and some cabinet locks. $15 isn't bad!

This week was Aidan's first time with sitter. Things went well, he really is a happy baby. I felt alot better about the whole situation then I thought I would be. I feel like I don't get enough time with him though, I get baout 4 hours of awake time with him a day. I used to spend ALL day with him :( I find myself rushing to pick him up after work. I hope this gets better. Maybe it will be a little easier when he is home with Daddy over the winter rather then with a sitter. We'll see... I'm sure things will be easier as time goes on.

My First Day at Work

Saturday went well! I like most of the girls that work there. It is certainly the best job for me right now. It totally fits our schedule and while I'm not making much, it's enough to make ends meet for us! Saturday was a busy day in there. For those of you that are familiar with Other Mother's, I am not looking forward to the next quarter sale! However, I do get all quarter sale items for free. Anything cute I see I will have to grab... I'm sure I can find somebody from Mommy and Me who will fit into it! My favorite store has now become my place of work, I couldn't ask for much more in a job!

Anthony seemed to do fine watching Aidan while I was at work. Aidan just loves his time with Daddy. Tomorrow will be a different story when I leave him with Thi, our childcare provider! I'm gonna cry right now thinking about it. It was hard enough to leave him with Anthony for 4 hours, I can't imagine how tomorrow will go! Oh well, I will get over it soon.

Thanks Linda for asking how things went!

New Job

So, I got a new job! I start on Saturday! I got a job at my favorite second hand store, Other Mothers. I am very excited, I absolutely love the store and it is the ideal job to make us a little extra cash and for me to be able to enjoy myself. I'll be working about 20 hours a week, just right. The other exciting thing is that I will generally start at noon which leaves me open to still attend Mommy and Me playdates with Aidan. I am SO thankful that Thi, a friend of ours, will be watching Aidan. That should only be short term though, Anthony is expecting to be laid off in November.

What a morning!

So, I decided to not take the job. I am reluctant to go to work. Anthony heard me crying last night and talking to Aidan, which started a long discussion about our schedules and work and Aidan. We decided that 5:30 is WAY to early for both Aidan and I. To make that work Aidan would have to be in bed earlier which cuts Anthony's time with him since he already works 6 days a week!

Anyways, the morning started with me calling to tell Cathy I wasn't going to take the position. She got pissy with me. I don't like pissy people. I even offered to help her next week while she finds somebody to fill the position. She was still pissy. Oh well, I was nice about the whole thing. As Anthony points out... who wants to work for a lady with an attitude like that anyways!! Then I had to call Thi who was going to do our childcare and I felt SO bad telling her that I wasn't taking the job. It was already short notice for her anyways and now I canceled. I feel like a flake!

Aidan and I were going to the mall for a Mommy and Me meetup this morning so I woke him up at 10:15 and got him dressed in an adorable little outfit with a zip up sweatshirt and jeans and sneakers. No sooner do I stick him in his carseat and he PUKES all over his outfit! So, I take him out to change him. I change Aidan on our ottoman in front of the Lazy Boy. This morning I had my head turned while reaching for his sock.. and THUNK! he falls off! I felt terrible, my baby has never fallen from anything. I felt so irresponsible!!!

He's over it now and taking a good nap. I feel like I need one too! On a good note, I cam ehome and checked my email. In my inbox was an email that Anthony sent from his friend's phone saying "I love you". That made my day much better!
