Bye bye America and single life!

My new 365 project is here

Next to last post!!! How fitting that we spent part our last full day in the US at Bass Pro Shop. It was...interesting. Lots of camouflage!

We took Wes's family to the National Zoo in DC.

Watching Liverpool at James Joyce Pub in Baltimore.

Still eating our delicious cake! It was raspberry cream and there were chocolate bits in the cake. The design for the flowers were taken off of our invitations. Each guest had a cupcake with one of the flowers on it.

Wes and I got a telegram from some friends in Exeter. We didn't know you could even send a telegram anymore!

Sunday, 5 April 2009


The morning after.

My incredibly handsome nephew was the ringbearer!

Friday, 3 April 2009


Eek! It's official now!

Thursday, 2 April 2009


Rehearsal dinner! I wore a blue dress in honor of my grandparents. My grandma wore a dress this color when she and Pappy were married 72 years ago. Pappy came and picked her up in the pickup truck and took her to get married!
*I tried to take a picture using the timer, but my battery was about to die and wouldn't let the LCD screen to be open. I had to ask my mom to take the picture instead. Sorry!

My beloved Obie died during the night. He was my best friend for 14 years. :(

Tuesday, 31 March 2009


Sorry...I had such a crap day today that I never took a picture.

Monday, 30 March 2009


Wes had never tried birch beer before, so we picked some up for him! He liked it!

Sunday, 29 March 2009


Yes, Panera is the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow!

Saturday, 28 March 2009


Wes is here!

Friday, 27 March 2009


I hung out with Evan today. He's polishing off my ice cream cone after eating his donuts!

Thursday, 26 March 2009


I was invited to hear my cousin record a duet with her teacher tonight. She's using it for a school project. Unfortunately I forgot my camera, so here she is after the fact posing with the CD and the piece they recorded. It was awesome!

So, I went to get my eyebrows waxed today and since my usual girl is in Baltimore, I had to go to someone else. The wax was a teensy bit hot and it burned my eyelids. Ouch. I'm just glad I did it this week and not next week!

The Wedding Dress Vault.

We needed a place to hang my dress outside of the garment bag so that some of the wrinkles will, hopefully, fall out. Since Wes is coming on Saturday it had to be some place he wouldn't see it. Bingo!

Monday, 23 March 2009


Red, white, and sparkling!

Sunday, 22 March 2009


Back up plan. I have a useless cookie stamp that's free to a good home!

Saturday, 21 March 2009


C'mon trees!!!

Friday, 20 March 2009


Jana is modeling one of the cookies that Kristen made for the pre-wedding girliness.

My parents have been having problems with birds doing their business on their back deck. I said, 'Too bad you can't get a scarecrow or something'. The lightbulb goes off in my mom's head as she remembers they have a plastic owl in the garage. Lord knows why! Anyway, so far it's doing the trick!

Wednesday, 18 March 2009


Well, huh. If anyone needs directions to the 'House of Foam', just let me know.

Tuesday, 17 March 2009


Nothing says 'Happy St. Patrick's Day' like shamrock-shaped finger jello!

Monday, 16 March 2009


My sister's cat, Max. He's really cute, has beautiful teal eyes, and likes to have his picture taken! This is a huge change from my two divas!

Sunday, 15 March 2009


Lancaster County, PA.

Dad is making trees for his train layout. Once he has more of it finished, I'll post a picture of it.

Friday, 13 March 2009


Thank God for crafty people! (The background paper is actually navy blue, not black,)

Thursday, 12 March 2009


This is my cousin's new puppy, Buddy. He's so cute!!!

Wednesday, 11 March 2009


My plate idea is looking good! Thank goodness I have a crafty sister! Although, I should point out the dots are all me!

Tuesday, 10 March 2009


We went to the florist today who is located just outside of Boiling Springs. It's even prettier when it's green!

Monday, 9 March 2009


Wes and I are going to use the cake knife my parents used at their wedding 40 years ago. It's not as yellow as this picture looks. The handle is actually white.

Sunday, 8 March 2009


The daffodils are literally erupting through the tan bark!

Saturday, 7 March 2009


Evan trying on the kicky glasses my aunt brought to my wedding shower!

Friday, 6 March 2009


Everything is so brown.

Thursday, 5 March 2009


Mom's spaghetti and meatballs! YUM!!!

Wednesday, 4 March 2009


My mom was intrigued that I could look at the LCD screen by flipping it around when taking a picture of myself.

Tuesday, 3 March 2009


As soon as I move out of the house, my parents get central air conditioning. Growing up I never had a TV in my room. I come back and there's a TV in my room...with a VCR no less! Huh.

Monday, 2 March 2009


Wes's work colleagues gave us a really nice bottle of champagne the week I arrived in Dublin. We decided to save it until my last evening in Dublin before leaving for the US.

Sunday, 1 March 2009


We picked up our wedding bands this weekend!

Saturday, 28 February 2009


Sorry, Wes took this picture of me so this one is a cheat. He was laughing at my short legs and my big slippers. I guess I could have at least combed my hair before he took the picture!

Friday, 27 February 2009


We went out for dinner and took this crap picture of ourselves on the way home. It was too cold to stand there and perfect the shot!

Thursday, 26 February 2009


Today was boring.

Wednesday, 25 February 2009


I have mad stacking skilz. Wes is incredibly inferior to me in this bit o' talent.

Tuesday, 24 February 2009


Sorry about the poor quality of the picture. Both cats were sitting on the arm of the sofa next to Wes. Obie started to get frisky (as he frequently will) and Little Kitty turned around, took a swipe at him, and jumped off. The grey stuff by his mouth is a huge tuft of Little Kitty's hair! Seems he deserved the swipe!

Monday, 23 February 2009


I walked down to the Docklands today.

Sunday, 22 February 2009


Wes was cutting the roast chicken and Obie was very interested!

Saturday, 21 February 2009


Finally hung the Baltimore pictures! This wasn't the original location, but after two bent nails we finally came to the conclusion that the preferred wall is concrete.
