here is my VERY early post for illustration friday

The topic is adoption, I have had a dog all of my life and once I moved out of my parents house have not had one ( this has only been 3 years) I still want a dog. and would love to adopt one.

More from Jersey later, I am sure I will have plenty of time to work on stuff like this.

Hello from Jersey

My husband is off doing business things and here I sit in the hotel in New Jersey. I am too chicken to exploring by my self so here I sit in the hotel room until god only knows when. So I'm gonna try my had at this illustration Friday thing. I only have a mouse here with me so we will have to see how that works.
I spent all day yesterday flying from Lexington, KY to Cinny. OH, to Newark, NJ . We rented a car from enterprise and they were so nice. But I have to admit I thought it was a bit of an act with the accent! It sounded like most of them were straight out of the sopranos. It was crazy. Now let me tell you that little child of suburbia here in the big city. Nick and I are hoping to go in to NY at the end of the week. I have Rockets tickes for thursday at 8:00 I am very excited. It is kind of cool to look out your window and see New york.

More to come.
Oh yeah happy holidays to you and yours!!!

Hey I'm Back

I just got marred this weekend, so pictures to follow also I am working on a pirate costume for the halloween party. and I am shoping for furniture. I will be back soon with a better looking lay out that I did my self. not one of these cookie cutter ones!

First Bridal Show: Check!

Nick and I did our first bridal show as presenters. It was fun! It's kind of cool knowing that you have the lowest prices and this is so because we dont have a studio. so we have plenty of room to have lower prices. The response was very good.
On another note...
My wedding dress will be in monday or tuesday so that is exciting!!!!!!
Also I have 6 invites to gmail if you want one email me!

Thats it pictures from the show to follow!

Quarter Life Crisis

Ok so I've been told that my little funk that I am in is a quarter life crisis! Hence now that school is over, I'm moving on to the next chapter of my life! Oh I'm in to full scale wedding panic! Here are the beginnings of the flower girl baskets.

It's still in the process, I'm still trying to figure out how to get rhinestones in here! The ribbon is Nicks Tartan since his mother vetoed the kilts I'm getting that tartan in at EVERY turn!!!!!!
Also have to pick pictures, have to finish the bridal shower favors, have to finish the bridesmaid gifts, and have to get the stupid dress in ARG!!!! Note to all of you out there! ELOPE!!!!!!!!!!!!
that's all for today!

NOW WHAT!?!?!?!?!

So I just got a letter from the college of communications saying that I have completed all requirements for my BA in telecommunications, and that I will receive my diploma in early to mid October! I should be psyched! But no, now I am more depressed! I am in a retail job that I loved because they worked with my school schedule, and that was great. Now however, I am just there, I have no where to go. School is over.
It's a strange feeling. Your whole life is planned out for you, preschool,grade school, middle school, high school, college. But after that it's kind of like your an adult make your own decisions! And well I don't wanna! I've put in full time applications but so far have heard nothing. And well I'm scared is this what the rest of my life is to be. I am to grow up and go to a job and come home to my husband and that's it! I'm too young for this! I'm only 23!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now don't get me wrong love nick more then anything and I cant wait t…

Slacker,Kempo, and Stuff

Ok yeah I'm a slacker, on the bloging front! Here is your picture
I was pretty proud of this taken with my little cool pix. i've been toying with buying a D100 but they stoped making them wich may be a good thing, and maybe just maybe the price will go down!
In other news I went to my first kempo class last night. Pretty fun but I am sore like you wouldent believe. My friend who sugested I go kind of forgot to tell me about the 100 push ups and the 200 crunches. Neither have I done since high school which was 6 years ago!!!!!
Now that I am not in school, I am looking for more dance classes to get in shape. So in adition to Kempo and Irish Dance which starts back up soon, I am looking in to a Ballett, Tap, and a Jazz Class. I'm hoping I can be dancing or something 5 nights a week.
So thats where Im at. I am busy like EVERY week end until the wedding so I figured I might as well fill up the day as well!
Oh yeah and I have 2 web sites that need to be done by monday. So that I …

It's for a Graphic Design Technician  Senior in the alumni house! Should be fun! Keep your fingers crossed! I have forty tons of laundry (think Jessica Simpson proportions!) Only problem no second floor to throw it all over! So it piled in my kitchen I may just have to do an art piece for this, I don't think I'm brave enough to take a picture! Things are gearing up for the wedding! Less then 2 months ACK!!! So much to do so little time! Ok back to the laundry!

My Left foot desperatly in need of a pedicure!


I was thinking today about some of the really good teachers that I have had and it's amazing how few there are for instance
2 in college
4 in high School
3 in middle school
2 in elem. School
that's 11 out of probably 70 if you count all of them.
that's kind of sad but good as well that those teachers really made that much of an impact on my life.

In other news, Nick and I had our engagement pictures yesterday they are online now at:

On a similar note I just got my weight watchers kit. this dosent seem too hard.
Here is the pic of the day

My very first home grown produce!!!

Our Government in Action

Ah the reason a friend told me I was going to hell. I happen to beileve that God has sense of humor. so the Fish 'n' Chips is just honoring GOD!
Have a good day:)

I am up way too early

I woke up at 4:45 this morning God only know why.  I havent been back to sleep and I dont like it my eyes are heavy but no sleepy for me. Now the sun is commin up maybe I'll sleep then. This is what I used to do when I lived at home. Stay up all night and sleep all day. My parent dubbed me the family vampire. ok thats it for now. Is any one reading this?

Ahh The Picture

The Clean office, I am so sad that I cant get over it. Here is a picture! Note the "work station" in the corner Nick called it Mission Control. I like my little hole I have every thing I could ever want. Also notice the drafting table there is NOTHING on it. I can actually draw on it now. and do my water colors. Whoo Hoo.

The Office is CLEAN

Holy cow this is amazing! We moved in to this house on Feb. 1st this year and It has been a reck ever since!!! and Now... A FLOOR!! Whoo Hooo!!! The pig sty is almost livable, We can have photography clients in here now! I am totaly shocked!! I cant believe it. Picture to follow!

Getting over Things

Nick and I have gone to get the actual wedding bands (VERY EXCITING!!!) but I can help but feel sad. All this planning and all this buildup for 1 day. We have been planing for a year and a half.  I 'm a little sad thats it's almost over I have to say!
Nick has a new job, at a higher pay grade which is exciting! I am very happy with that. This being said, and I know this is the princess comming out in me I'm a little upset because we have to post pone the honey moon, (TO IRELAND!!!) While it's not being cancled only moved, I'm just bummed because I have had this vision in my head that you leave directly from the wedding to the honeymoon. EVEN though I know this is not the norm it still  upsets me a bit.  But now we think that we may go over St. Pats which should be fun!
I am still looking for a new job. Selling dance shoes has just about worn out it's welcome. so here I go in to the big bad evil abyss of a ..."REAL JOB"
ok thats it for the day.

Time to Grow up and I DONT WANNA!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok so I'm finaly Graduating College after 5 and a half years. So what does this mean? It means that I have to get a real Job. and I dont wanna. Ok kids take it from me a degree does not mean any thing!!! A bachlors degree will only get a job that might pay 20,000 a year. ARG!!! Oh well enough griping! I'm gonna try and work on this site a little more today
