Speaking of real life... It's crazy these days!!
1 day till my "surprise" from McHubby. I just have to get through today. That's it. I still can't blog about what the surprise is, but I'm bursting at the seams here! (AND the surprise is killing me too :P) Said surprise will leave me with little time for blogging over the next few days, which is why I want to get this 100th one done today.
On a completely
25 days till the wedding! My best friend from high school is loaning me her dress, and I LOVE her for it! She's the only one who's been there for EVERY mess up I've ever had, and I'm so happy she gets to be there for one of the things I plan to do right! (plus its really funny because when we were in grade 9, she used to call McHubby a dirty old man whenever she caught him lusting after the hotness that was teenage me).
Amanda and I in high school! Yep! We went out and got our matching jacket pictures taken at walmart :P This is the year we got the schools manager of the year award for managing the boys hockey team... AND the year that I walked into the dressing room to fill water bottles and saw my first real life naked boy (and crush at the time) walking out of the shower... OOPS! ;) Poor guy, I don't think we were ever able to look each other in the eye again without giggling. But I did not take kindly to the whole, you saw mine, I should get to see yours suggestion OR the suggestion that My boyfriend should get to see his Girlfriend!
But thats a whole OTHER blog post.
The teenage hotness that was me :P As you can see, the idea for the Cullen's pail vampire skin was from THIS prom picture. and no... thats not the "Pervy" McHubby. Its just the pervy classmate.
My brother showed up at the house yesterday with a wedding dress. My Sister in Law got it from freecycle (the bestest sight ever, as long as you have a car... which I don't). Its the "fall back" dress in case we need extra material for the other dress to fit. I tried it on, and its lacy and bead-y and... well... a wedding dress. After the first minor panic attack trying it on, I put it on a second time to show my dad when he got home from work. McHubby called just as the fashion show was starting, and we had a long distance family crisis. (Which I'm afraid I didn't help with too much because I was too busy laughing and saying "What an idiot" regarding the Eldest, in the most loving way possible (sorry baby. I know I should have been more supportive). So when McHubby said he was close to tears, I had to tell him that I'd been sitting there talking to him for 25 min, wearing this wedding dress. At least he laughed for a minute. (My sister in law Krystyne, modeling the freecycle wedding
My dog is a chewer. NOTHING in the house is sacred, and if I were honest with myself, part of the reason I LOVED my job at the vets was because of the huge discount I got on vet services, because I knew that EVENTUALLY we'd have to have surgery to remove a
Busy rest of the week at my place. I've decided to go see SAW VI on Thursday (I have a love hate relationship with horror movies. I LOVE watching them from between my fingers as I cover my eyes, and I HATE how they scare me so bad I need to pee with the bathroom door open). Friday I think I'm taking Munchkin out of school for the day. Date day. Maybe take him to New Moon. (YES! I know! He's 7!! Probably not appropriate, and I got stopped last week by the librarian who asked me to explain to Munchkin
for the 3rd time why he's not allowed to check out Twilight on Library day but he's already seen the first one, and he LOVES the idea!) Santa Claus Parade in my brothers town on Saturday, and family dinner Saturday night. Oh yeah... and THE surprise in there somewhere... :)
McHubby and I at the Parade his first year back in Canada... apparently he wasn't used to the cold :P
So you can see my brain is at capacity. And through it all, I've not entered a single contest this week. Im going through withdrawl...
