Wednesday Bloggin Time!

Hey Guys! Hope you like the new background/theme/design whatever it is for my blog I really do. In fact that is why I changed my usual purple type to this dark red to match it! Sorry haven't blogged much stressful times with the thyroid and all. I do my radio iodine treatment on Friday and will be radioactive for about 3-4 days. My doctor told me I could still go outside (thank goodness not sure how I could lay in bed for three full days), she even said I could go to a store but had to stay 6ft away from people. And I was thinking wait 1) how do you check out then? 2) how can you stay 6ft away from people at all times besides wearing a sign that says I am radioactive stay away or wearing a hazmat suit 3) how many people at the store are actually radiating!? I mean come on you have to think it now when a dr. tells me I can go to the store while I am radiating. Anyway I am really hoping my eyes don't bug out, that is one thing that can happen. I think I would just go into super depressed mode and not sure how I would get out of it. However, if I gained a super power say I don't know the ability to fly, invisibility or hulk strength (without the green) then I might be okay with it as long as no harmful side effects from the new found power. 

Anyway so if I don't blog much this weekend it is because I am radiating and am not feeling my hottest. Not to mention that my hyperthyroid will get worse before better, so that freaks me out a little, mainly because of my heart. But I will certainly be glad when this is over and also, I just want to be normal and play soccer and work out and now worry about getting my heart rate too high. Also, fingers crossed I don't gain weight on the steroid I have to take with this. 

To top it all off my fiance, Adam, had to go on a work trip and left today so I am all alone without him. Now this may seem silly to some but we have hardly been apart for so long. And it is not like he is just at a friends house hanging out, he is in another state entirely. Not to mention he comes back Friday, but I won't be there to welcome him home because I will be in confinement at my parents house in my room away from everyone I could contaminate until Sunday so basically I don't get to see him from today till Monday :-(. He said he would come over but then I have to just stay 6ft and say hi, how lame is that. 

Oh well on to Wee Bit Wednesday! Yay! So excited this one has a Disney question!!

1) If you won a trip to Disneyland/World, who would you take with you?I would take Adam, my Mom and Katie :-)
2) When was the last time you listened to a CD? If it counts that I made myself an MP3 CD for my car so I could use it easier than my IPOD then just yesterday. If an actual CD at a store that I bought about a week or two ago.
3) What spice/seasoning is your favorite? Garlic, I am definitely a garlic girl. I put it on so much stuff! Yum!
4) If you were in a band, what kind of music would you play? Probably country or alternative. Those are my favorite. I don't think I could do pop but then again I dunno so maybe Pop also.
5) If you could have personally witness one historical event, which one would it be? Wow this is a hard question for a history nerd! Hmmmm I would like to have witnessed the Salem Witch Trials, I know this seems weird but I would have liked to see the court back then and how it all went down. Now I have tons of historical events I would have wanted to witness so this was a hard question.
6) If you could go back to school, what would you study? I would probably continue my ancient history classes, or I would do business.
7)  If you could go to one sporting event, all expenses paid, which one would you see? The super bowl hands down! It would be a lot of fun, plus it is the most expensive.
8) Do you drive an automatic or a manual? I drive an automatic.
9) Are you comfortable speaking in front of people? Sometimes, I took a public speaking class so that helped. I am nervous at first then I calm down.
10) Have you ever experienced an earthquake? Indeed I have! Funny story too! My two cousins and I were at DisneyLand staying at one of their resorts. We were near the top floor. We had just ordered our room service and it had just arrived, we were watching a ghost story or something like that on TLC or whatever and it said give us a sign you are here. Then our room started shaking (perfect timing huh!) We all three just stood there for a sec going okay what the heck is there a ghost in the room then it clicked and we were like omg its an earthquake and then we were like but our food is so warm do we really have to leave lol. We did eventually leave but reluctantly and then all the rides got shut down for a few minutes.

Now it is time for What I'm Lovin' I really like this blog hop :-).

I'm Lovin' that in 80 days I will be getting married to this handsome man! 

I'm Lovin' that all my bridesmaids, flower girls, maid of honors and junior bridesmaid have all ordered their dresses!

I'm Lovin' that in 81 days we will be on a plane to DisneyWorld and Universal Studios for our Honeymoon!

I'm Lovin' that I have got about 4 days of dining reservations for hour honeymoon figured out!

I'm Not Lovin' that Adam left for a work trip today and that on Friday I am doing my radio iodine treatment (I hope I get to read a lot!)

I'm Lovin' that Tangled came out yesterday and Adam and I got to watch it! 

Anyway I think that is about it for today! Hope you all enjoyed! Hope I get some new followers! I also hope I get to bake some cupcakes soon! Course if I am radioactive no one can eat them :-(. See y'all later!

Wee Bit of What I'm Lovin' Wednesday!

Hello fellow bloggers! Well I have been poked with needles in both arms today :-( sad face let me just tell you I absolutely hate needles! I also believe that my left arm vein the is the best one because it sticks out more so I usually only do that arm. I also make sure they use the butterfly needles, the ones they use on babies :-) I feel they hurt less, at least in my mind. I have this fear that they will miss my vein and hit my bone, why do I think that, because it happened to my mom and she got a nice bruise all the way up and down it so that is my fear! However I have been told my left vein is good. I also tell all the nurses that story in hopes that they know not to nail my bone, in case that wasn't taught in school lol. However, Tricore off San Mateo is by far the best I love them there, as much as I can love people poking me with a needles and stealing my blood. 

I had to get dye injected so I had them do it on my left arm, not knowing later I would be needing blood draw so we would have to do my right arm :-(. So anyway the lady that did the dye injection had a Mickey Mouse wedding ring I loved it! She goes twice a year to WDW so it was nice talking about that while getting poked. Then when I went to get blood draw I think it hurt the worst ever! I think it was cause it was a guy not a girl and he just jabbed it in there, not all sweet and gentle like the other nurses have been. Stupid men! (jk) Anyway so I am a cross between hashymoto (not sure how to spell it) and graves, which is both hypo and hyper thyroid so I now call it gramoto is what I have since it is a cross. The doctor thinks even though I am hyper I will turn hypo eventually like my mom. I can take a pill for now to regulate it but I could be allergic to it or it can make me get really ban infections and apparently my white blood cell count was low in December so we had to test it again, hence the blood drawing. If it is still low I shouldn't take the pills. I could also do nothing but then no soccer or exercising for me :-(. My other option is to do radiation where it will basically kill most of my thyroid and I will eventually become hypothyroid and still have to take medicine but it is all natural and no side effects, I like that. I don't like the radiation factor of it. I would have to be isolated from people for four days, eat with plastic stuff, bag my clothes and sheet separately and wash them separately. So it all hinges on these white blood cell counts! Anyway glad to have one more part over with.

Now on to my blog hops! It is time for my favorite Wee Bit Wednesday over at Leigh Ashley and I also have a new one I absolutely love it is What I'm Loving Wednesday over at This Kind of Love. Go check them out! Hence my blog title! :-)
 1)What was your first job? My first job was actually at McDonalds ha ha but I also helped my mom with her at home business so I am going to vote that was my first job :-).
2) Have you ever seen a stand up comedian? No I have no. I would like to see the Blue Collar Comedy Tour though if I could.
3) When was the last time you played mini golf? Must have been last May on Adam's birthday. The best mini golf is in Disney World :-) it also is a lot more fun when tipsy.
4) What was the last picture you took? Ha ha I took one last night of our kitten Olive sitting in my bath as I was filling it up with water. I had to start all over when she got out.
5) Burnt food: yes or no? No way! I have to scrap off the burnt parts.

8) Do you scrapbook? Yes! I love to scrapbook! That is when I get the chance. I also love buying scrapbook stuff, I have way too much. Then of course I never want to use it cause it is too cute!

I'm Loving that in less than three months now I will be married to the man of my dreams!

Ten on Tuesday Blog Hop

Hey guys! I do promise to start writing more. I am having some test done on my thyroid this week so it is going to be a little bit hectic. Anyway...I found a new blog hop that I am very excited about doing! I hope you check it out and join as well. Head on over to Roots and Rings for Ten on Tuesday!

1) What condiments are always, always in your fridge? Mayo and Ketchup
2) How do you like your steak cooked? Your burgers? Both of them well done. I can't stand the pink and the blood still seeping out when you cut into a steak!
3) What's your favorite use for fresh tomatoes? Giving them to my mom or Adam because I don't like tomatoes.
4) What's your go-to-dinner when you haven't planned anything in advance and you don't feel like going out? I would have to say spaghetti and hashbrowns. Yum!
5) What's your favorite snack food lately? Hawaiian Rolls they are yummy.
6) What's your favorite weekend breakfast to make at home? Eggs, biscuits, hashbrowns or fried potatoes and canadian bacon or real skillet fried bacon.
7) What's your favorite thing to grill? How do you do it? Well I am not usually the griller but if so chicken or steak with some good bbq sauce on them both, my dad makes a really good sauce.
8) What's your favorite wine for under $10? If you're not a wine person, what brand of beer is your favorite? I think the brand is Barefoot and their Moscato (sp?) wine is my favorite, it's the only wine I will ever drink. I am more a mixed drink type of gal. 
9) Give us your most delicious cocktail recipe? Let's see if you melt up some vanilla ice cream a little and add rose tequila it is good. Or a vanilla milkshake with banana liquor is amazing! Or of course Kahlua Skye vodka and cream for a delicious white Russian.
10) How do you like your eggs? Over Easy and preferably with no broken yoke, although sometimes a broken yoke taste good, but only sometimes. 

Well there is my Ten on Tuesday blog hop! I hope you enjoyed! I will try and write more later if I can!

check it out! I LOVE it! Course I am nerdy and love answering
questions when I am asked them :-)!

2) What's your favorite sundae topping? Hot fudge, yum now I want a Sonic sundae!
3) Do you own slippers? Yes I own a few pairs! I love slippers, I can't step out of the shower without them because I think of how clean my feet were and then walking on a dirty floor how much
dirt and hair and what not they are picking up since they are wet.

Honeymoon Honeymoon!

Hey everyone! I am so sorry I was a slacker again! I don't know how I keep doing that! I just get so exhausted by the end of the day I am too brain dead to type! But good news on the wedding front...the honeymoon is all BOOKED!!!!!!!!!! Let me tell you how big of a relief that was! The flights are booked! The vacation package is booked! We leave the evening after the wedding and are going to stay at Universal Studios Orlando for four nights! My Mom found a deal where you get to go to the new Harry Potter theme park early and have breakfast at the Three Broomsticks. And then we are staying at one of their on-site hotels so that will be great! We have never stayed there before but it will be nice and relaxing. We will have 3 full days there and then we leave on the 23rd and head up to Disney World for 10 days! We are staying at the Port Orleans Riverside hotel, I have never stayed there before I am excited! We are staying in a Magnolia Bend room, which means it is styled after Gone With The Wind Era! They have a carriage ride there so I am hoping we can do that! Our package includes all our meals mostly, except for in Universal, and so we get to start planning those! I am excited to do that because we get to reserve the dining online this time! Yes I am a nerd but I love planning it out! We also get those little pins to wear around that says we are celebrating our honeymoon so I am excited! YAY!!! So now that the honeymoon is done and most of the big wedding stuff is done maybe I can actually blog more! 

We are doing our food tasting tomorrow for the reception! We are trying steak, pork loin and chicken relleno. It should be yummy! We also get to see the linen set up and also the 2 different centerpiece options! So then once that is picked out we need to start working on the wedding invites. 

Then Saturday is my bridal shower! I will make sure to take some pictures! I am very excited! I can't wait! Plus I get to see all my friends! And my moose brother! Also get to watch lots of wedding movies and eat some fourth meal! And dress up! 

Sorry it is such a quick update but have some stuff need to get done will write more soon! :-) Hope I still have some readers out there!

So Sorry!

Hey guys! Whoever is still left! I am sooooo sorry I have been absent it has been one crazy week! Let me just say I am ready for the weekend and a drink! Good new soccer starts Sunday! I love soccer and it helps keep me in shape, of course it also gives me an awful shinguard/farmers tan that I can't have for the wedding! Anyway first game is against Septic Unicorns it was an intense game last time lets see how it is this time! 

We picked our cake lay for the wedding. I think she will do good she is a at home baker but she does really great fondant work so I am pretty happy. Plus it saved us some money. We are going to have some Disney theme to our cake, but in an elegant way! So I am pretty excited about that! Have had some stress getting it all done because another couple wanted our day so it was yet another quick decision. You would think after the cake that most of our big stuff would be done, which maybe most of it is but I still feel super stressed! Trying to figure out this honeymoon is about to drive me insane, I can't fit the trip into the price that his parents gave us and that is because it is Disney and June those two together = MOST EXPENSIVE TIME TO GO! Lucky us because all the awesome deals either end right before or start right after we are there. Well so I have been doing it so many different ways and getting confused and stressed on what to do if we don't have enough from his parents to cover it or not! So that is one thing. We finally I think have the pictures narrowed down for our signature guest book that I need to get turned into the photographer. We...well we were supposed to but it got down to just me going to David's Bridal to try on flower girl dresses with Adam's flower girl and finally pick one out since she grew and we couldn't do the one I wanted, however I do like the one we ended up picking it is cute. So then that was done, got the flower pins ordered for the girls dress, my alteration appointment set up, and texted my cousin for the other flower girl to inform her of the dress. Then on top of it I added another MOH to the wedding and then we added Adam's sister and her husband to the wedding party as a bm and a gm and then I added my cousin as a junior BM and then we have my other two cousins as ushers. So there somehow I have managed to almost fit everyone in the wedding somehow! Now we still need to register, send out invites, we need to do food testing, make place cards, programs, pick out favors, gifts, adams gift, our rings, the officiant, decorations, cake flavor and design, shoes, honeymoon, tan, get in shape, try out hair, pick out music, learn dance, write vows, omg and I am sure more so I am stressing the f out! Truly! Now this doesn't mean I don't love it I do but it is stressful!

On top of wedding stuff find out yesterday that our rent is going up to $823. Now we have a small one bedroom apartment where the hot water doesn't last long in the shower, where you have to park way in the middle of nowhere to park and I just think that is a little outrageous and if we go month to month it is $939! First off I could hardly afford out $778 rent! I really need to make more money, especially since I have a BA degree! But on top of thinking great now I have to somehow pay more rent all I can think of is I need to buy his ring, save up for bach party in vegas, save money for spending money for honeymoon, save up enough money to pay rent when get back from honeymoon since won't be getting paid for my time off for honeymoon. Not to mention groceries, gas, and life. I am just feeling the stress. And then of course I just sitting here complaining which I am sure is really what you guys were wanting to hear right! Oh well it will work out somehow! In the meantime I am going to be stressed and ready for a nice glass of alcohol this weekend, if not more than one!

Good new bridal shower in 1 week 2 days! Another good news get to see my moose brother in 1 week 2 days! 

I really need to work out! I had been doing so good for awhile! I just am never motivated to work out at home it just stinks! 

I realized last night just how much Pretty Woman is one of my favorite movies! It really is! I love it! I love Julia Roberts, not to mention those hot sexy thigh high boots I have wanted my whole life and then I have to admit I think Richard Gere is a sexy man. Anyway I told Adam that should be our Halloween costume, he the sexy business man and me the hooker turned classy although not sure I could pass up wearing the sexy boots! Anyway Julia Roberts has a pretty good toned body in that movie so maybe if I continuously watch it or something I will be motivated to work out. I mean I really do want to be in shape I just have no motivation! 

Well I guess I should stop for now! I will try and write another one tonight if possible and I not having a panic attack curled up on the floor crying ha ha! Anyway I joined up with Thursday Blog Hop at Every Day Products and More! You should check it out! I am sad that I missed my wee bit of me Wednesday blog hop! I still might answer the questions though for fun! 

Oh on a P.S. note I have read 5 of my 25 books to read this year goal, I am thinking slight chance can do more but with the wedding I am not sure. I finished The Emperor's Tomb, which is not one I typically read but I really enjoyed it! I will be reading the rest of the series, and in order this time. I am starting The Boleyn Inheritance by Phillipa Gregory she is great you should check her out. I also need to finish my  Sookie novels and also the Bride Quartet novels by Nora Roberts, but that will have to wait till I have money! Adios for now!
