4 days...wowza...3 days really...i mean that's when the kickoff is, the rehearsal and dinner and whatnot. this whole process has been super exciting and although i can't wait for our ceremony in front of our family and friends, i keep thinking about how much easier it would have been to just run away. no arguments with family, no last minutes mistakes or runs to the would be nice. but still. we're super excited that Noels marrying us and that the psalters will be there along with two of our friends performing...and the officilality of it all. being married, united through Christ. no longer living as two, but becoming one. how exciting. sunday can't get here soon enough. i can't believe i get to spend the rest of my life with such an amazing man. i don't know how he puts up with me! i feel extraordinarily blessed.

if you could shout up a few prayers for us and our soon to be marriage, i'…

saw this on one of Noels emails...i just can't stop reading it. i'm cracking up!

problem solved

bartender problem solved. thank you, thank you, thank you!

bartend anyone?

**mood: angry
**noise: steam escaping my ears

does anyone want to make an extremely easy 100 bucks (14 bux/hr)? although the place we're holding our reception said we didn't need a bartender, they are now saying we do. i'm trying not to be pissed...but it's not working so well

so here's the thing. i need someone who will sit on their rump shaker and watch people come up and take a beer. oh and make sure there are no underage drinking...which, let me tell you, the few 6 month and five year olds that will be there are some hardcore partiers. it will be the easiest 100 bucks you'll probably ever make. it's from 5pm - 12am on Sunday September 24. If anyone's interested, let me know.

thanks guys.

**noise: are you a dreamer ~ denison witmer

I want to know why most folks in management positions think that it's beneath them to do grunt work? How does a person who worked from the ground up only to make it to power positions forget that they once were the person being crapped on? I'm completely bewildered at this mentality. Only 'secretaries' at my work have to clean the break-room. It doesn't matter if it's not there mess, it's still they're responsibility. This makes no sense.

yesterday i was asked to deliver something. i was asked to go to someones office to pick up a paket. i was then told to call a the secretary so she can come down, pick up the packet, make copies and give it back to me to deliver. why? i have the packet. i can make the copies and give them to the secretary…i have no problem with that…then i get to lansing to deliver the stinking packet, pull up to a meter, put…

**noise: into dust~mazy star

the whole blog world is fascinating to me. i blog here, but i also have a myspace, primarily so i can keep up with current friends, make new and find old. it's the finding old friends that's a bit difficult for me. i used to be different...very different. i guess we all were. and it's usually not a problem, but there are some folks that i presume have no idea what to think of me. they use to know the old me. maybe they new the highschooler...the nice and proper, straight girl that hung out with everyone and yet somehow managed to live an almost straight life throughout highschool. or maybe they new the 20 something partier, hipster, free thinking, christian hating, dumpster diving freak...ok, so i'm still the hipster, free thinking freak...but no longer am i the christian hater...i'm the christian. my life has been completely overhauled. spiritually and physically. i've changed most aspects of my life…f…

last sunday was the 3 week mark to the wedding. my moms getting a bit flustered! steve and i just can't wait for the day to come. these last 3 weeks are going to fly. i'm not nervous. i keep getting asked that. but i am anxious. and excited. i still can't believe that i'm getting married to the most amazing man i know. i feel so blessed.

i took out my piercing sunday. i miss the flair, but not the apprehension that it may get infected again. i feel so naked's strange.

silly brain

**mood:'s date night!
**noise: your racist friend...they might be giants

i feel so silly...all day i've been confused about the songs that keep popping up on my ipod. i shuffle it at work but today it's been playing the same songs. it's been horrible but other thank thinking about it i haven't done anything to rectify the problem...

i just looked at my was only shuffling my library not the songs on my actual ipod...

i don't think my brain's functioning that well today...too funny

coffee poo

**mood: bummed
**noise: canned heat...jamiroquai

i'm a confessed coffee snob. steve and i buy our fav fair trad coffee from puravida, or he roasts his own. we grind it and only use a french press, drink it with organic creamer.... when we go out for coffee, he gets an americano, i get a red eye. we're creatures of habit. we're picky when it comes to coffee. i should know better, but i don't. every now and then i want to try something different. that brings us to today. i wanted something sweet, but i'm sensitive to sugar..too much and i crash, hard. so i try to avoid high fructose and such, so i was trying to choose at the local charlotte coffee house when the barista, who knows my tastes, suggests to get a strong latte. so against my better judgement, i give it a whirl. and now, i sit here at work with a sour mess of a beverage, and missing my tried and true red eye. he's still a great barista...i just now know that i can't stand lattes.

ahh, the j…
