SPI in photos

We made Janeane into a mermaid... hahaha... Joey on 'Friends' anyone??

Derik and his dad fishing on the ocean... I wasn't here, but thankfully Derik actually took pictures :)

Us eating a Mr. Taco - so yummy... and so cheap... I LOVED it. We need one here :)

Derik and I at SPI... I like this pic.

Don't necessarily like this pic, but Derik looked funny wearing my hat and glasses. Silly boy!

Derik and D.J. fishing - they are goof balls when they're together...

ok - this is Derik DEVOURING watermelon...

and this is Derik afterwards... yes, this is my fiance!

I had a wonderful time off... I told Derik that the NEXT TIME we are at the beach will be on OUR HONEYMOON! ahhhh!

It's been a while...

Well, it's been a while since my last post and it's kind of been a whirlwind.

After my CRAZY work schedule the last 2 weeks... the one with 2 weeks of work and one day off. I was so glad to have a week off. It was NOT long enough, but regardless, glad to have it. I had fun with Britt and my mom looking at wedding gowns and I can't wait to go order the one I picked out. I wanted to order it right then, but we went to a couple more places to make sure that I really did like it. AND I DO! :)

I then went to SPI with the Melton's Wed-Sun. That was fun and interesting. It was very fun actually! :) we went to SP Schlitterbahn on TH. Mexico on FRI. Then went to the beach on SAT. Then we left on SUN. I'll post pictures of our time later this week... although I don't like any of me in my bathing suit pics - haha! :)

I hope to get my dress soon and then start looking at cakes. AND - me and Derik are registering within the next few weeks - before he goes back to school. I'm SOOOO EXCITED! :) Not about the going back to school thing --- about the registering thing! Texas Tech starts back August 25th. Not really looking forward to that day, but - ONE MORE SEMESTER BABE!

Oh my gosh!

Can I just say that today has made me breathe a little easier?

I can now put a check by....

1. Pick a Reception site! :) (this I am most excited about!)
2. Pay deposit for Reception site
3. Pay deposit for Photographer

I know there will be many more "checks" to come... but today I feel I have accomplished a lot! (with the help of my dad for #1/#2) :)

Flower Lady a no show

So, me and my mom called a florist that we met through an event the past week and we decided to meet with her today (Wednesday) at 10am.

We drive to the wonderful Round Rock and their door is locked. So, I was hot, and I decided to wait on the curb - my mom was in the car. It's 10:10 - still no lady. Then at about 10:20-10:30, the florist business manager pulls in and says "did you have an appointment today?" well yes I did :)

She calls the florist that we were supposed to meet with - the actual "designer" - and she said she had something at 11am and couldn't meet today but that she "felt bad". So, we did meet with the florist business manager and talked with her a little. But, she doesn't know all the terms or what we could do - she told us that herself - But, we rescheduled for next Tuesday.

I'll show you more of what I'm looking at next week! So much fun!
