Wednesday Ramblings

...This weekend we're getting family pictures taken and engagement photos. Hope the rain holds off for Saturday, but it's not looking too promising!

...We will be getting two sets of engagement pictures taken. lol I thought I could get the price of our package down by getting them done else where. When we met with our photographer, she mentioned it was included as a complimentary gift from her. Might as well since we are paying the same price anyway. Plus it will be a good way for her to get to know us better before the big day!

...I have a wedding shower for a friend on Sunday. Looking forward to seeing everyone. Little sad I can't stay very long due to my aunts wedding. It's at a winery. On a Sunday. Enough said.

...REALLY hoping gas prices will go down soon! Right now it's costing me about $120 a week. Yuck!

...After watching an episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County(I'm a Real Housewives junkie, except I don't like the New York version), the first thing I will do when I win the lottery is get a nose job and sinus' removed. No joke! When I was little I hit my nose when vacationing at the Lake of the Ozarks on a jungle gym bar. It seemed to be bruised forever! Well a few years ago when I went for my allergies with Dr. Krenning here in Rolla, she stated it was cleared I fractured my nose in the past and my air passage is a little blocked. That is the only time I really hit it hard, but at the time didn't think I hit it hard enough to fracture it. I always say I have a butt nose and I HATE my side profile. So much in fact, that I am debating on wearing my hair down for the wedding just so I won't feel so insecure about it. I know that even with my hair down you will still see my side profile, guess it's my security blanket. Just ask my family, I've always been paranoid about my nose! Now to win the lotto!!!

...For the past two years, Mike has bought me clothes for Christmas from the Buckle. I never shop at the Buckle simply because they HOUND the CRAP out of you. I like to browse on my own and I know what I like or don't like, not some sales person who knows nothing about me. I have been struggling with jean purchases, the so called 31" length some how increases by the time I get home. Even too long to wear with heels and I even tried them on in the store! lol Yes, I am that short. A little over 5'1 in fact. Back to the drawing board with a pair of jeans, this will be the FOURTH time of exchanging. lol Wouldn't be so bad but every time the sales person makes me feel guilty literally for taking back an item my fiance (still not used to calling him that) originally bought for me. Does anyone else have this problem with this store? I give.

...I was very happy to hear my new hometown had a meeting about noise nuisances. I understand that kids will be kids, heck I used to think it was cool to rev up your engine, etc. It has became a huge problem when these noises are pretty well in one area, by Father Ben's house and God's house almost every night of the week. Very very disrespectful. Usually once a month there is also several marks from tire burning there as well. I'll be glad when I come home in the evenings to see a cop in town because I will know the problem will be taken care of. For now anyway.

...Mike is always doing a load of laundry at least 2-3 times a week before I get home. It's nice of him to do so, but he cramps everything in and uses way too much detergent. At least it's just his clothes. This past weekend I bought Tide pods just for him to use. This way he can't use too much laundry detergent. lol


  1. Well at least Mike is trying to help :) I wondered if they made those tide packs for men lol.
    Wedding at a winery sounds fun have a glass or two for me!
    Your hair will look just fine either up or down don't worry about it!! I am sure no one else sees what you think you do in your profile picture!

  2. I had that surgery 13 years ago & it was one of the best things ever. I used to get sick all of the time & hated my hump.

  3. I didn't know you could get your sinus' removed!!! Crazy! Have you checked into how much the surgery costs? Maybe it's more affordable than you think?!

  4. CourtneySue15 - I didn't know you had your sinus' removed as well. Was it painful and costly?

    Life is Wonderful - I didn't know that either until I just saw it done on TV. lol I haven't checked into cost yet. With yearly sinus infections, it's something I would be willing to consider. That is, if I didn't have a wedding to plan/buy for. :) It would definitely be worth every penny in my opinion!

  5. I did not have them totally removed, but had them drill bigger holes clean them out, & fix the caved in bones. While they were in there they did a few other cosmetic adjustments as well. It was very very painful, but a pretty quick recovery I have no idea how much it cost, but I do know it was covered by my insurance.

  6. I have been in the Buckle twice I think, and both times they hounded me and I didn't buy anything! LOL.. I like shopping without sales people talking to me! :)
