I'm back!

I should have made it a longer break but I was feeling a little deprived... I'll just sum up the weekend and last week all on this post.

...Mike and I had our Pre-Cana class on Saturday. Luckily we knew about 3 other couples there so that made it a little easier. 4 couples talked and one doctor. The first couple set the bar very high and seemed like we would get a lot out of the class and made you think about fiances, etc. Well after the first couple it went downhill very quickly to boredom. So glad it's over and we never have to do that again! :)

...Mike's family had a wedding shower for us. Mom and my cousin, Ashlyne went with me to the shower while my dad and cousin Zach went with Mike to see the farm, turkeys and to go fishing at Jr's lake. Got lots of goodies at the shower and had a nice afternoon visiting with everyone. Come to find out Mike's cousin is due on his birthday. We don't get to see that side of the family very much so we probably won't see the new baby until Randy and Elizabeth's shower or wedding next year.

...Speaking of weddings....... we have ANOTHER for next year. I think I am just going to quit counting and buy a calendar. Starting to get harder to keep track of all the dates in my head.

...I found a quote on Pinterest late last week and thought wow, this pretty well sums up me. 
"Sometimes we expect more from others because we would be willing to do that much for them."

...Still haven't met with our priest! Yikes! We met with our Deacon once, but we decided to not have him do the wedding ceremony. Starting to regret that decision. We found out on Saturday that Fr. met with another couple three times already and their wedding isn't until November! Hopefully he calls this week because we're getting down to the wire. Or maybe we can get out of it. :) Ha, I doubt we get that lucky!
...This weekend I am meeting up with my Vienna girls. Ready to do some catching up! Even though it's only been a week since I saw them last. :)

...This weekend is also our Vichy shower with the 'Vichy bunch' and my extended Elrod family. I don't know why but I am more nervous for this shower than any other. lol Maybe it's because the hall is so big or that's what I am blaming it on anyway.


  1. Tha hall its in isn't big. But I am excited to get to be there Sunday for your shower :)

  2. It is compared to the other showers. :)
