Happy Monday guys!
WOW I can’t even tell you how overwhelmingly positive, supportive and just all around awesome everyone’s response was to my post on Friday. I appreciate every single kind word, text and e-mail I received. It feels amazing going into this big journey with so much support and so much confidence from all of you.
You guys are rock stars. 🙂
Okay, so this weekend was a really awesome one. Too bad I literally got no photos…of anything.
On Friday evening, Shane and I met up with a bunch of his work friends (and I consider them my friends as well) for some end-of-the-week drinks.
I had a “Skinny Sweet Tea” (sorry, no photo…blogger fail) and it was delicious. Shane’s pick, however, tasted like Robitussen.
Anyway, here’s a photo of the gang that I 100% stole from Shane’s friend Erika’s Facebook.
Doesn’t this group look awesome?
I spent most of Saturday getting organized and putting around the house. I ended up having to get in the shower around 4:00 so I could start getting ready. Shane had his Holiday Party for work on Saturday night- I had much preparation to do.
I ended up curling my hair (which I don’t do as often as I should?) but the funny thing was I had just painted my nails and was worried that I’d mess them up. So, I did the only logical thing and asked my mom to help me.
The perks of living at home! (even if just for a little while longer)
My mom hadn’t curled my hair in forever- so it was actually kind of a nice throwback.
Anyhoooo, we arrived at the party just in time for dinner, prize drawings and speeches. We sat with essentially the same group that had gone out the night before, give or take a couple people.
After getting our butts handed to us doing the dollar dance- where we could have won $100 if we’d just out the dollar on our butts instead of our heads!( It’s not a long story, but…it’s more involved than I care to be currently. Maybe if I had a photo?) It was time for a couple drinks and some real dancing.
After a couple hours, one very nerve racking Shocker basketball game (everyone was watching around a table on someone’s cell phone. It was hilarious.) and a solid performance of both the Cupid Shuffle and the Wobble- it was time to head out.
We ended up going for one more drink at a local sports bar called the Fox and Hound with our friends Katie and Spencer. I know I’ve mentioned them before (Katie is a game night hostess extraordinaire) but just for clarity- Katie is Shane’s television co-host and Spencer is her fiancé. They’re both a lot of fun, and really wonderful people- we always have a blast when we get to spend some time with them!
So naturally, we had a blast on Saturday night!
Sunday, Shane and I went to the 11 o’clock service at the church we’re getting married in. It was really nice, because we got to hear Pastor Paul (pre-marital counseling/ wedding Paul) preach- and his sermon was exactly what Shane and I both needed to hear that morning. It was a really nice moment. Then, afterwards, we met with the pianist at the church who will be playing some of our wedding music. He was wonderfully nice, and I think I may have also found someone to play guitar and sing one of the other wedding songs- score!
Shane and I went for brunch after church, and then my mom and I actually wound up at Bed, Bath and Beyond to get more wedding registry information and to put a couple more things on my preliminary list. I’ll tell you what- there’s nothing quite as overwhelming as a wedding registry.
Especially in a store as big as BB and B.
However, we made some good head way, and I’m very excited about the things that we picked out. 🙂
Alrighty kiddos, that about does it for me tonight. We have the Golden Globes taped and I fully intend to watch it- before everyone’s Pinterest memes ruin all of the craziness for me.
Also on the agenda, a workout…of some sort. I haven’t decided what yet! I think I need another “set in stone” plan- those always seem to work best for me, takes all the guesswork out!
Have a great night everyone 🙂
