To everything there is a season...

As the wedding draws near, people keep asking me if I am nervous. And to tell the truth I was starting to get nervous in the following departments; what if I don't get all my stuff done on time & oh crap I have to stand up in front of 100 people and hope I don't pass out. I think this is all very common as far as wedding jitters go.
BUT...since god has this way of messing with me, I was ill prepared for the blow that struck me last week Monday. I had taken the day off to get some stuff done. (this was the Monday after my Bachelorette party) OK, so my boss's call me at home on my day off and drop the bomb...we are being purchased! (mind you, I've already been through one buy out!) We are being purchased by one of our competitors and they cannot guarantee that I'll have a job once this happens. OH... did I mention that this "purchase" is happening the weekend of my wedding??? LOVELY! So, as of right now, I don't know if I'll have a job to come back to. And, I'm for sure loosing my company vehicle!
So, I apologize for not blogging lately...I've got a lot on my plate. Let me tell you... this doesn't make the stress of the final weeks of wedding planning look like much! God's always throwing curve balls. Thank god I'm so prepared. (I know you all secretly laughed at me when I was doing all this misc. wedding stuff months ago. You all thought I was nuts for doing it all so early. well... I'm glad I'm crazy anal, cause it's helping to save my sanity now!!!) Go Katie!
Ok, Happy thoughts..... (sorry, I've gotten a little frazzled this past week :)

Back to School...

"OH...back to school, back to school, to prove to dad that I'm not a fool. Got my lunch packed up, my boots tied tight. I hope I don't get in a fight. Ohhhh... back to school, back to school, back to school. Well... here goes nothing!"

Ok, I'm sure most of you know... I live in my own little fantasy world. And Maysun isn't going back to school to earn our families hotel chain. BUT... she did start the second grade on Tuesday. She is excited to be back in school. She has Mr. Van Dueser as a teacher this year and seems to like him so far.

I am not as excited for school to be here.... I hate early bed times, packing lunches, fighting w/ her to do her homework, etc... PLUS... It mean that winter is around the corner. BOOO!!! Don't get me wrong, I love fall. I just don't like what follows.

Labor Day Weekend

We had a great Labor Day Weekend. Friday Jacob and Morgan slept over. I watched Carter until 10, so that Amy and Scott could celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary. We made a nest, snuggled, ate popcorn, and watched movies! I had fun and I hope the kids did too!!

Saturday morning I made scrambled eggs and toast for breakfast, we cleaned up our mess, ran to the bank, dropped books off at the library, played in the fountain at Shattuck park, picked up produce at the farmers market, and then I dropped the kids off at home.

Saturday afternoon, Stephanie, Angie, Cassandra, and my mom came over to help assemble the table favors for the wedding. I am happy to say that they are DONE!!! Woo hoo!!!

Sunday we spent the afternoon at Todd & Jody Schwartzkoph's house. We hung out, had a few cocktails, and spent the day in their pool. What a relaxing afternoon!

Sunday night, we went out to a friends house in Omro. The city of Omro cancelled their 4th of July celebration because their river was too high. So they rescheduled it for this past Sunday. So we watched the fireworks in Dan and Sarah's backyard. We hung out there until 11 and then went home.

Monday...ah, my favorite day. We spent the entire day in bed watching TV! I LOVED IT!!! That's the best kind of day off!!!

Weight Watchers update

Ok... I have been doing Weight Watchers on/off for a year and a half. I started the end of April 2007 through July 2007 and lost 20 lbs!!! I gained two/three back and restarted Weight Watchers again in June 2008 through August 2008. I am proud to say that I have lost, through both WW attempts, 30 lbs!!!
And if I am not mistaken, Kurt is down 25 lbs since March 2008! Way to go babe!!! w

Silly Shower update

I have received some really cool stuff through the 'SILLY SHOWER' thrown for me by my cousin Clarissa. Yesterday I received what I assume will be the last gift. It was from my Aunt Nikki in Galena Illinois. She sent me these really cool spatula's, a box of Rice Krispies and a bag of marshmallows!!! I was so excited! I cannot wait to make some treats!!! Home made Rice Krispie treats are probably one of my absolute favorite snacks! What a NEAT idea! I may have to re-use the idea in the future! THANKS AUNT NIKKI!!!
