Happy Birthday to Mii!

Filed under: All Things Wedding,Cheesepuff,It's All About Me — by corazondeswiss @ 6:53 pm

Because CP gave me the Wii that I wanted for Christmas (when I got golf clubs)!!  My parents gave me the Wii Fit system for it.  I have been having a blast playing.  And Janet it will tell you that you’re fat.  But no worries, you can lock your Mii (that’s your little character you create) with a password so no one knows exactly how what your numbers are.  Boxing is really fun and I’m sore from all the fun I’ve been having playing games with CP and my family.  This is the first time in my life I wanted a video game system and I’m so excited about it!

We also had a busy weekend registering for our wedding gifts at Dillards, BB&B and a local store.  I don’t mind telling you, picking out wedding presents is hard work!  (Esp. if you are wearing heeled sandals that aren’t great for walking around BB&B for a couple of hours)  And also if you go to the new Dillards where they don’t have a full time registry consultant, the power goes out during the middle of your registering.  And the person helping you makes you feel bad for registering at other stores. But its finished and we’re all registered and I’m making adjustments as needed.

What I learned at work today…

Filed under: Workin' for a living — by corazondeswiss @ 8:40 pm

While at work today I found something that made me ask:  What’s the half life of cocaine?  How long after you take it will you test positive for it?  Before anyone thinks anything of it, its not because I want to use this knowledge, although it could be useful as a party trick. 
I came back to my department to ask my co-workers if they knew.  No one did of course.  So we looked it up on the internets.  (How I love thee!) 
The answers: half life: 60-90 minutes  
                     detection: 1-5 days (but chronic users may test positive for longer)
Sometimes my job presents me with good opportunities for learning!

The post in which I don’t really talk about wedding planning directly…

Filed under: It's All About Me — by corazondeswiss @ 8:01 pm

I was thinking about this in the car this morning.  I do lots of thinking in the car.  It’s my “me” time.  And suddenly I realized I have all kinds of stuff to tell you about. 
Like I recently went to the doctor because I was concerned that even though I am killing myself working out at the gym a milllion  five to eight times a week, I have not lost any weight. In addition to needing a regular exam and birth control (no honeymoon babies, please) I brought up my concerns.  So during my follow up appointment after my bloodwork, I find out my Vitamin B12 is in the toilet (literally what my nurse practitioner said to me), my allergies are horrible and I have the highest levels she’s ever seen.  And my triglycerides are higher than she’d like.   Oh and my thyroid is a little low.  Suddenly I walk out of her office armed with 5 prescriptions.  Not including my birth control.  How did this happen? 
So anyway, I’m on this little regime of pills everyday.  I haven’t lost any weight just yet, but hopefully I’ll do so in the next couple of weeks.  The NP thinks that I’m exchanging muscle for fat, and soon I’ll have a big drop in my weight.  I hope so! 
In wedding news, I mailed out Save-The-Dates this week, got the three (!) pairs of shoes I ordered to try with my wedding dress (plan to have you help me choose shoes soon!).  And over the weekend found an everyday china pattern I love to go along with the formal china I already love.  Oh! And I picked the Lladro figurine to go with my cake.  I think I’ve figured out what I want to do for my cake!  But I am saving these fpr another day. 
It’s my birthday month and my best friend sent me an awesome (early!) birthday present- A new Vera Bradley bag!  Hooray for awesome presents!!

May flowers

Filed under: All Things Wedding,Cheesepuff,Love & Relationships — by corazondeswiss @ 8:29 pm

I’ve got more pictures.  And wedding stuff to talk about. 

First: There is a lot more to flowers for weddings than I ever thought.  Like hundreds of dollars.  Totalling into the thousand + range.  If that’s not ridiculous, I don’t know what is.  Seriously.  My mouth almost fell open when the florist quoted me $200-$250 for my bouquet ALONE.  Plus $25-$30 more for a toss bouquet.  What is wrong with this picture? I got a lead today on another florist who could be much less than the other three I’ve seen.  But honestly, I’m so tired of meeting with them- I just want to decide and get it over with. 
CP is coming to visit in three weeks for Memorial Day weekend.  (And my birthday is that Saturday, yay!!).  We’ve got to register, look at invitations, possibly meet with the pastor for pre-marital counseling… I’ve got to stop thinking about it now or I’ll get too stressed.  In the meantime, more pictures!
