The hubs just informed me it was snowing on his way home for lunch today. Ugh. Not ready AT ALL. It’s not sticking or anything notable, but it’s cold enough for it to happen. :(

Well, the weekend flew by pretty quickly. Watched the Timberwolves lose at a friends house Friday night, window shopped at scratch & dent furniture stores Saturday, VFW for karaoke Saturday night, and cleaned all day yesterday. A fun weekend? Not really, but that’s fine. My only lasting effect is a broken back from vacuuming and cleaning yesterday. I’m old!

I’m looking forward to the weekend, Leslie’s bachelorette party is Saturday – at the indoor water park! Should be a blast, aside from having to put a swimming suit on.

Like weight lifted off my shoulders…

The thank you notes are DONE. I feel horrible for letting it go this long! But, according to Carly at the Knot (my wedding website savior):

It’s never too late to be gracious.

I think that’s an awesome quote to live by.

6 Random Facts?

Ms Martini tagged me with a task of posting 6 random facts about myself. So…here goes nothing.

1. Halloween is nearly my favorite holiday, next to Christmas. I have seen nearly every horror movie ever made, and have no problem watching them over and over again every year when they’re on TV. My favorite TV show is Ghost Hunters on Sci-Fi Network. Yeah, I’m THAT girl.

2. My cat’s name is Miles. (Named after Miles Davis, not Miles on Murphy Brown.) He also goes by Milo, Mile-hole, Mr. Stink, Shoe, Monkey, Monkey-butt, Butt-face, Stink-butt, and Milo McQuack – to name a few.

3. Although I’m excited to move into our first house, I’m terrified of not having a buffer from the outside world (a la security doors on apartment buildings and not being elevated from the “ground floor”). I’ll more than likely have trouble sleeping for the first few weeks with misc noises and whatnot that houses make.

4. Whenever a firetruck drives by, I have to (according to an unwritten “girl law”) yell “HAAAAAYYY.” Firefighters have the stigma of being hot. Somewhere, there is a picture of me on a fire truck from my bachelorette party in Minneapolis. I need to see that someday.

5. I have a sailor’s mouth. I drop the “f-bomb” more times daily than I can count. I like swearing. I didn’t really start to swear until after I turned 17. I didn’t start to swear in front of my parents until about 5 years ago. Since that invisible barrier was torn down, my parents tend to swear more than I do. But…we’re good people. :)

6. My left hand has cramped up 7 times today because of playing Guitar Hero III for like, 3 hours last night. Being able to play along with “3’s & 7’s” by Queens of the Stone Age has been a dream come true, and I will not rest until I can play it on expert mode. (I’m trying to master the Medium level now…)

Get Well Mia!

Category please and thank you

There’s a new link on the right. See it? It says “Get Well Soon Mia!”

Here’s the deal. A dear friend of mine has an adorable daughter named Mia who recently had a seizure and was airlifted to Children’s Hospital in Milwaukee. Alissa & John, her parents, were broke before this happened, and now they’re going to have even more bills, including a 6 day hospital stay & numerous tests. They do have insurance, but are still paying off bills from Mia’s birth almost two years ago. Read more about Mia’s story.

You have a PayPal account? You have $5 laying around? Awesome. Donate it here.

It took me 1 minute to find this and complete my transaction thanks to paypal. However, I think this will look lovely in the same room with my alabaster stag head. :)
