it's crazy, just knowing that the world is round...

and i'm here dancing on the ground...
am i right side up or upside down...
is this real or am i dreaming...
(love those DMB lyrics, they have nothing to do with my post, ha)

okay, i know i owe a wedding update to ya'll....
a lot has changed in our lives in the past 6 or so weeks.
so we figured why not change our wedding date as well.

we are getting married in under 2 months!
i'm working on a budget of $500.
we are no longer having a reception/party.
we are sticking with our very small ceremony.
just parents and siblings.
they are the people who mean the most to us.

i have my dress.
my shoes.
those are the two most important things, right?!

with my $500 budget, i need....
a bouquet (they are expensive!!)
a garter and i'm working with someone on etsy to get just what i want for a great price.
small cake.
i have a photographer booked, she is giving us an awesome deal!
also need a few decorations (ordered).
gus needs his tux (will be ordered asap).
marriage license.

not included in the budget...
whatever billy decides to wear.
food for a casual dinner after the ceremony.
a friend of ours got ordained for us and will be marrying us! :)

i could be forgetting is crazy busy these days!!

as for me being "OK" with all of this.
well, of course i am!!
the point of a wedding is to get married to the person you want to spend your life with, your soul mate!
i am head over heals in love with my billy and i can't wait to be his wifey!

here is me today...

happy as a clam :)
i love my earings and top...
guess who else is a happy little guy.... GUSSY BEAR!!
he is back to his normal self and playing babies and running the house!
he is off his pain meds that were making him loopy and now on an antibiotic since the other dog bit him.
accidents happen, we are just so glad to have our little boogie healthy and happy!

that's all for today...
happy thursday friends!! :)

diet coke, where have you been all my life?!
i'm totally addicted to you!

doesn't it seem like the days/weeks just go quicker and quicker as each year passes?!?
time quite literally just flies by.

what we've been up to the past few days....

my mom came over to visit and watch the survivor finale.
when she was leaving we went outside with gus.
the neighbor dog just happened to come running out at the same time and took our poor little gus right down. the neighbor dog is a 60 pound black lab, gus weighs 9 pounds.
she flipped him over and pinned him.
her owner pulled the dog off of gus really quick and gus just ran up to the front door.
it all happened so quick.
we thought he was just shook up and scared because he could still walk and seemed ok.
we spent the rest of the night on the couch with him just relaxing.
my mom texted me around 10:30 saying my sister's dog heard a firework and took off and was nowhere to be found :(

gus wouldn't come out of his kennel.
i made breakfast and fed a little to gus and he ate.
i called the vet and made an appt for him.
brought him in a few hours later and she said he wasn't bit but was in a lot of pain so he was put on 2 pain meds.
the meds kicked in quick and he was doing much better.
i decided to tackle a project friday evening/ took me forever!
hanging frames on the wall above the desk in "billy's" office.

i need a long thin frame to go under the mirror still.
a few holes in the wall later, i got everything up.
i really SUCK at hanging stuff, ha!

i added a couple more things to this shelf unit...
it still needs some work and i want to paint those small green vases lime green.

and a couple things to the hutch...
2 picture frames and a jar...

we had a relaxing friday night just hanging at home.
sister's pup jo, is still missing.
they had checked the humane society, with the police, printed and hung fliers and made craigslist postings.

i woke up to a text from my mom saying my sister's pup had been found at 3 in the morning!
my sister woke up and just happened to open the front door and joey just walked in!!
my sister was out of town so she was nervous that her dog wouldn't be able to figure out where he was or make it back.
we are SO thankful he is okay!!
gus was doing much better, back to his normal self for the most part.
the meds he is on make him kind of sleepy.
i spent saturday cleaning the house and running lots of errands.
then we had company over around 5.
we sat on the deck and enjoyed some apps and a drink.
then we decided to go bowling.
it was a fun night :)

ended up cleaning again from the evening before.
grocery shopped.
ran a few other errands.
i was then very lazy and slept for 2 hours,
sometimes naps are needed!
gus and i spent sunday evening with my mom and her pup.
billy had hockey and my dad has been out of town the past few weeks and my sis has been gone as well.
my mom and i always have a million things to chat about so she made us a yummy dinner and we talked for 3 or so hours.

billy had hockey last night so i got a few other little projects done...
ceiling fan light covers needed some work.
i scrapped the old paint off...
spray painted a tan color...
mirror that was previously on our dresser....
spray painted black and will be hung in the living room...
$4 vase from goodwill....
was navy, now black and sitting on the office window ledge.
possible next project for the office...
i was bummed i missed RHNJ last night but have it on DVR.
when billy got home i made sloppy joes and corn on the cob.
we ate and watched curb your enthusiasm for the rest of the night.
while petting gus i felt something on his skin, i thought it was a tic.
turns out it was a bite mark :(
i'll be bringing our baby back to the vet today....

that post might be in the record book for my longest ever but i blog as a journal of mine and billy's life so i do what i gotta do ;)


i hope YOU are all doing WONDERFUL!! :)
i have A LOT of catching up to do!

p.s. i'll do a little wedding post tomorrow....the other news has to wait.

life with you makes perfect sense...

i'm far from perfect....
sometimes i'm bossy....
i get an attitude...
i criticize you when i shouldn't...
i do know...
YOU always love ME...
i LOVE you too...
my best friend lyrics...
I never had no one
I could count on
I've been let down so many times
I was tired of hurtin'
So tired of searchin'
'Til you walked into my life
It was a feelin'
I'd never known
And for the first time
I didn't feel alone

You're more than a lover
There could never be another
To make me feel the way you do
Oh we just get closer
I fall in love all over
Everytime I look at you
I don't know where I'd be
Without you here with me
Life with you makes perfect sense
You're my best friend
You're my best friend, oh yeah

You stand by me
And you believe in me
Like nobody ever has
When my world goes crazy
You're right there to save me
You make me see how much I have
And I still tremble
When we touch
And oh the look in your eyes
When we make love

You're more than a lover
There could never be another
To make me feel the way you do
Oh we just get closer
I fall in love all over
Everytime I look at you
I don't know where I'd be
Without you here with me
Life with you makes perfect sense
You're my best friend
You're my best friend, oh yeah

you are my best friend and my life wouldn't be complete without you...

p.s. i might have news to share soon.
i definitely have wedding news i need to share with ya'll!!
happy wednesday!
that's all for today my friends...

my weekend in pics...

i spent my weekend in sioux falls, south dakota.
my family is from there so i love going to visit.
we went there for my cousin's graduation party.
we helped my aunt shop for all the food and we prepped everything and set up with her.
we ran lots of errands, got some shopping in, i got to see my grandma for a while as well.
i always miss my relatives so much.
my dad and my brother were busy building a deck for another one of my aunts so that meant we (my mom, sis and i) had my nephew the 3 days we were there.
which was totally fine by me, dominic is at such a fun age.
almost all the pictures i have from the weekend are of him!
dom licking chocolate cheesecake, he wouldn't take a bite of it...dom loved my aunt's dog buster....

please come play with me bussy (as dom called him)....
trying to pick him up...
after chasing him around the house for a while, they were both pooped out...
i love this picture!
it was a beautiful weekend so we spent A LOT of time outside...
playing with auntie lexie...

and auntie annie...
my sissy and i, love her bunches...
he played bucket head with grandma...sneakin up on her...
dom had the cutest superman pj's cape and all... he put on red chapstick, of course we laughed!
he didn't think us laughing at him was funny...
we weren't driving at this time, hence the loose shoulder straps.
we were just in a parking lot laughing and taking pictures, haha...

i think he jumped off this wall a million times....

at the grocery stores there they give kids suckers and balloons...
i thought that was so nice!
chowin on chips while running errands....
this kid eats chips and fries and that's pretty much it...lastly, dominic wanted to take a picture of me.
not too bad for a 2 year old...
okay, that was a TON of pictures of dominic!! haha!
i was with him non-stop all weekend.
such a fun almost perfect weekend!!
my billy couldn't come, that was a bummer.
my last few weekends have been SO busy, i can not wait for this weekend. i have nothing planned and so much i want to get done. billy doesn't have hockey at all this coming weekend either!
i also have off friday again...woo hoo ;)
i love short work weeks!

happy tuesday friends!!! :)

thoughtless thursday...

thoughtless thursday is brought to you by the adorable, pregnant katie over at life in the fulmer lane!!
if you don't know her, go check out her blog! love her!
the rules for T.T. as stated by katie...
Here's the deal. Pick a picture (or a bunch) of WHATEVER you want. No explanation needed (but is more than welcome).

i decided to go with a bunch of pictures this week!
this is a long post, you can just look at pics if you'd like :)

3 years ago at this very time in march i went to VEGAS with my bestie laura and our friend morgan.
we planned the trip over my other bestie,whitney's, birthday.
she ended up not being able to come though :(
it was my first time to vegas, laura and morgan had already been a few times.
here are some pics from our trip. we actually didn't even take that many pics.
at the airport having a drink before getting on the plane.
me, morgan and laurai hated my hair back in those days!!!

this is pic on the way to dinner our first night, we were on a moving sidewalk... morgan had been to vegas more than once.
she knew the right people.
we met her friend for dinner and he paid... here we are in a limo on our way to the palm's hotel....
at da club...since morgan knew this one guy we got into the club for free and got all of our drinks free.
not sure who he was and laura and i never did find out his real name.
fine by me though, i don't mind free stuff! ha!
my phone went in the toilet that night...

the next morning we grabbed breakfast.... giant margaritas of course...
then we walked the strip and did a little tourist shopping...
the second night we got all dolled up and went to dinner.
no pictures of that.
then we met up with some of my friends from minnesota that were living in utah.
we decided to change and have a "minnesota" night at the bar AMERICA in New York, New York. us girls all wearing jeans and hollister sweatshirts...haha
i think this was the next morning, me outside our hotel...
my phone also went into a giant cup of water that morning.
we went and ate a giant brunch then i guess i changed again to go do some shopping on the strip.
on our last night we decided to not hang out with morgan's friend, ha.
we were prepared to pay to get into some club, the line was really long, so we went to sit in a little bar right outside of JET before the doors opened.
one of the club promoters approached us and asked if we would be willing to walk in the club with a group of guys.
the deal for us was we would get in free, be in VIP and have bottle service all night.
all we had to do was walk in with these guys.
um, sure....
we will walk into the club with them and then drink all their booze.
so we did.... we had so much fun!!!
we danced ALL night long!
drank WAY TOO MUCH!!
lost morgan for WAY TOO LONG.
then celebrated with more drinks @4 when we finally found her!! ha!
me and laura in the bathroom happy we found morgan!
this is us when we left the club... i don't think i had hardly any makeup on by the time we left at 5 it all sweated off.
the next morning was ROUGH to say the least!
we had to check out by 11.
morgan was smart and she kept her room pass so we went down to the pool area and went to sleep on the chairs. thanks for taking my pic laura...
this is us right before leaving vegas...
i wish we had more pictures, we went out to dinner each night and got all dressed up but i don't have any pictures of that. we spent time by the pool each day as well, there was a lazy river. i loved our hotel!

it's funny to look at what we wore, i think the fashions have changed!!
if i was in vegas this year, i wouldn't be wearing jeans!!
i'd be wearing adorable party dresses!!

okay, longest post ever....

i have a 3 day weekend, i'm going to south dakota to visit family and for my cousin's graduation!! :)
happy thursday, have a great weekend everyone!!!

btw, after two plunges while submerged in water my phone did survive the trip somehow....
