It just can't be Wednesday already. Where did Monday and Tuesday go? Now normally, I would be thrilled at the thought of having it already be Wednesday but with everything that's going on and everything that needs to be done, I can't believe I only have two days left! Yikes!

How is your week going?

Memorial Weekend

Well, this weekend is going to be a hectic one! I am going to a bridal shower today for a wedding I am the maid of honor. Then I am heading back to my home town to spend some time with my parents. I will be doing a lot of traveling, but at least it's not work, right?

I hope you all have a great weekend and take some time to remember what Memorial Day is really all about and not just another day off!!!!

Happy Memorial Day!

It's Thursday!

Special thanks to goofy girl for the banner!

With the help of fiance, I am doing my 13 favorite movie quotes!
(Can you get all the movies right?)
***I'll post the answers tomorrow!!!!***
  1. "Jack Sparrow: No. Not good. Stop. Not good. What are you doing? You've burned all the food, the shade, the RUM. Elizabeth: Yes, the rum is gone. Jack Sparrow: Why is the rum gone?"
  2. "I wipe my own ass! I wipe my own ass!!"
  3. "Life should be a little nuts. Otherwise, it's just a bunch of... Thursdays, strung together."
  4. "President Andrew Shepherd: This is a time for serious people, Bob, and your 15 minutes are up. My name is Andrew Shepherd, and I AM the President. "
  5. Max: "My teacher tells me that beauty is on the inside." Dad: "That's just something ugly people say."
  6. Rick: I wanna see your a$$ in the air. Kate: Well until Hercules here learns how to lock his grip, this will have to do... (hint: Toe Pick!!)
  7. "Back to school....back to my dad...I'm not a fool"
  8. "I just don't think that Brooke could've done this. Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don't kill their husbands, they just don't."
  9. "Mr. Madison, what you have just said, is the most insanely idiotic thing I have ever heard. At no point, in your rambling incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul. "
  10. "Tess: You're a thief and a liar. Danny: I only lied about being a thief."
  11. "The way I see it, you got two choices. You either gotta get busy livin'... or get busy dyin' "
  12. "I have what doctors like to call a little bit of a weight problem. "
  13. "ROBBIE:Hey,I don't know your last name. GLENN:It's Gulia. ROBBIE:Gulia!Julia's last name's gonna be Gulia!Julia Gulia!That's funny! GLENN:Why is that funny? ROBBIE:I-I don't know. "

Okay, you know the rules. Just like always, leave a comment so I can put your link up (and you have to say something more than "mine's up") This week, however, try to guess the movies. The person with the most correct will win....well, you'll just feel special! :-) Isn't that enough? Good luck!

***To see who has already left comments, you have to go down to the next post, because blogger is being stupid and not letting me put the links in here!***

Letter Tag

This how it works: Janet gave me the letter "J"; I'll write ten words beginning with "J" (what fun!). When you leave a comment on this entry, I'll give YOU a letter (if you want to play) and then you post this in your blog...and so on and so on :-)

1. Job--I am very thankful to have a job and especially thankful that I actually enjoy my job!
2. Jelly--What would the world be without jelly to go with peanut butter? My childhood would not have been the same!
3. Jury--I have always wanted to serve on a jury-don't ask why, because I don't know!
4. Johnny Depp--he is the reason I got the letter J. Do I really need to explain this one?
5. Janet--she is one of the 1st blogs I started reading and read her every day!
6. Jolly--I love Christmas time "Tis the season to be jolly!" :-)
7. Jungle--The Jungle Book was one of my favorite stories when I was little...I would love to visit a jungle!
8. Jewelry--I know everyone says "What woman doesn't like jewelry?" Well this one does!
9. Jerk--I have met more than 1 in my life time and I'm sure it won't be the end of them!
10. Josh Groban--Don't ask why, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE his voice!

Okay, I'm looking for people to play! I'm full of letters!

What a week!

Well, this week has had its ups and downs. Tuesday I went to a Brewer game with fiance and his friend. Then Thursday we went to the Tim McGraw/Faith Hill Soul 2 Soul II tour. Now some people like country and some don't, but I will post a picture of the concert. If you don't like country, that's fine, just don't leave nasty messages.

Then yesterday, my puppy was put to sleep. My parents said it did not take her long to go which is good. She really was the best puppy anyone could ask for. She is now in doggy heaven bragging about how cool her owners were :-) That's what's keeping me smiling! I know she was one of the most spoiled dogs ever!

Other than that, it's cleaning this weekend and maybe having some friends over for dinner. Since I do okay with making lasagna, that's what I'll make. How was your week?

I'm thinking about starting a "Would you rather" Monday or something. We'll see how that goes. And on a happy front, goofy girl has started my new blog design and it's coming along great! Hopefully it'll be up and running this summer so we can do a big debut! :-)

Happy Saturday!

A Thursday without a 13? What?

Sorry everyone, but I'm taking today off. Fiance and I took the day off together so we're going away for the day. I know you all will miss me terribly, but try to get over it :-)

Have a wonderful Thursday!

Instead of having 13, read the two posts below. Thanks!

Wednesday, May 17, 2006 Cashew!

This is my puppy, Cashew. She is 13 1/2 years old. Unfortunately, she has become pretty old, pretty fast and is being put down on Friday. I was very upset about this at first, but I visited her last weekend and realized that she's not enjoying her doggy life anymore. She is soooo cute! She is 12 pounds and has been the light of my mom's life. She has doggy alzeihmer's (sp?) too because she doesn't seem to remember where she is! She is still a good eater and loves popcorn, peanut butter and other things. She had some lasagna this past Christmas too :-)

I just thought I would introduce her to everyone so that you can all see why she is so special to me! Oh and the only trick I taught her (my mom was in charge of tricks) was pointing to my face and saying "kissy" and oh boy were you attached with kisses!!!! What a loving and wonderful dog. She will truly be missed!!!! So say hello to Cashew!!!

Weekend wrap-up

Well, it was quite the weekend. I went up to see my mom on Saturday morning and stayed until this morning. It was great to see her. I found out on Friday that my parents made an appointment to put my puppy to sleep this Friday. I'm not doing too well with this. So on top of giving mom presents and going out to eat, I had to say goodbye to my puppy. This pretty much broke my heart. She's 13 1/2 and THE BEST PUPPY EVER!!!!
I was trying to upload a picture, but it won't let me. I'll post it tomorrow.

Anyway, on to some happy news...I asked my "sister" (yes, I'm an only child, but she's the closest I have to a sister) to be my maid of honor this weekend and she said YES! So that was super exciting. I can't wait to have a helper :-)

Well, that's it for me. I'll post that picture soon :-)

Friday, May 12, 2006


I don't have much to say today (imagine that!) I am glad it's Friday. I've had an annoying stomach ache for three days now.

However, I am excited that Goofy Girl has said she would help me makeover my blog when summer vacation starts!!!! I am so excited. Check her out...she has other designs available too. There is a link to her designs from her webpage.

Also, if you haven't checked Janet out, you should! She has entertaining and fun posts! She does a "What Is It" on Wednesday and does the TT on Thursdays! Enjoy those two.

Happy Friday everyone!

It's that time again....

Thirteen Things That Stress This Blogger Out!
1. Thinking about going back to school full-time and working full-time
2. Having a lot of things due at work at the same time!
3. Having four weddings this summer, two of which I'm in
4. The cost of those two weddings I'm in
5. Thinking about all the planning for my wedding (and attempting some of it!)
6. Trying to keep this apartment clean with all the other things
7. Paying all the bills (and on time even!)
8. Keeping up with all my emails (you'd be surprised that this honestly is a struggle some days!)
9. Trying to catch up on scrapbooking instead of stuff being all over the apartment
10. Finishing up a blanket for my parents that I thought I would have given them last year for Christmas (oops)
11. Wasting too much time and then realizing that I can't get things done that I need to.
12. Not getting enough sleep because then the next day is oh so not fun!
13. Does anyone want to be in an online book club? (Just checking to see if you read to the bottom!)
Just like every other week, leave me a message and I'll put you up. Don't just leave "nice list, mine's up" or I won't list you. Sorry, that's the way it is.
4. Goofy Girl (she skipped this week, but check her out anyway!)
7. Tricia
10. Lauren
11. TLC

one more thing today...

I wasn't going to write anything today, but does anyone have a random blog design laying around or wants to share with me? I am so sick of the stupid ones that blogger gives you choices of and I don't know how to design my own. OH well, just a thought.

Just a simple picture....

Our hiking trip!

Read below to find where these came from!

  • My experiment with black and white. This is a shelter for backpackers who want to camp out. We are looking out at a really cool outlook!

This trout was in a really clear spring where you can ONLY catch and release! A grave stone at a super old cemetary. This was from 1800.
This old cabin was also from the 1800's. It's boarded up though. Still awesome!

Book Club

So, my really good friend, Katie (who I called my sister--long story!) and I were talking today about how much we love to read and how it would be SO neat to join a book club. Then we thought about how we could run an online book club through a anyone be interested? It probably wouldn't be up and running for a few months yet. Any takers? Leave me a message and let me know what you think. We wouldn't read books from the 1800's either!

Weekend update!

Well, this weekend just flew by! I can't believe it's Monday and I'm working again! For those that left me comments on Friday, I kind of got a new outfit for the wedding. I got a new shirt and put it with a skirt I already had and I was satisfied. Fiance and I looked really nice for the wedding! It was soooo much fun and we even got up and danced a few times! Instead of a cake, they had a chocolate fountain and instead of a "head" table, they sat at the round tables among everyone else! It was great!!!!

Yesterday, we went hiking and biking. Now, I am not the most active person in the world and so I don't even know how long we went but we were gone for almost 5 hours. It was a blast though! I will post some pictures from the trip if anyone wants to see them! Just let me know. We saw an old cemetery that had a few headstones from 1796!!!! The trail is called the Ice Age Trail and goes all through Wisconsin. It's such a neat trail. If anyone lives in WI, I highly suggest going on at least part of the trail!

Today, I am back to work and the apartment is still not clean. Hmmm....bummer! Thankfully all the dishes are done and everything is picked up, it's just the dusting and vacuuming that needs to be done!

Happy Monday!!!

Another week gone by...

Honestly, I can't believe it's Friday. I have had a very hectic week and it's ending with an even more hectic Friday. I am currently *ahem* working and then from 12-2 I have grad. school orientation. Then since I worked 10 hours the other day, I am taking off this afternoon. I don't think I ever did post about my Wednesday. (Note to all--I am NOT a morning person). I woke up at 4:00am (no, that's not a typo) and got ready to leave. I then drove an hour to get to a radio station before 6:30am to be interviewed for the agency I work for. Now, I love being on the's fun, energetic and the hosts were a blast. However, I'm not pretty at 6:30am nor do I try to be pretty at that time. So thankfully this was radio and not TV. Then I drove another hour home to continue working for another 8 hours for a total of 10 1/2 hours of work. Now, I do realize that some people work 10 or 12 hour shifts, however, I don't so that was a long ass day for me.

We have a wedding to go to tomorrow and of course I Nothing. I keep trying to tell fiance that but he just doesn't believe me when he opens up my closet and stuff falls out! hmmm...I need to work on another strategy I think. I told him that I *guess* I'll try to come up with something. I do need shoes though.

Anyway, that's it for me. How was your week? Paris was cut from American Idol, CSI and Without a Trace were excellent. I hear Amazing Race is getting down to the wire and Alias is heating up before the final show ever! I'm excited for Desperate Housewives and Grey's Anatomy this week. When Meredith says "You have no right to call me a whore" or something like that. Hmmm, that'll be interesting.

Anyway, I'm off. Have great weekends and comon people, you visit, at least say hi!

Thursday Thirteen!

Thirteen TV Shows Amy Loves!

1. FRIENDS--I will always love this show! It's just one of my favorites (I have almost all the seasons on DVD).
2. Grey's Anatomy--What a wonderful, fairly new, show. I enjoy the characters, the story lines and the humor of the show!
3. Alias--I never liked this show at first, but a friend loves it and got me watching it. Now I'm hooked and it ends soon!
4. American Idol--I really do enjoy watching these 'artists'. Some are good and some are bad, but overall, I just enjoy the singing and watching people strive for their dreams.
5. Desperate Housewives--although I do think last season was better than this season, it's still great to see those 5 ladies so their things on the show!
6. Prison Break--I'm glad to see they are finally starting to escape (although I missed the last 15 min. last week cause fiance came home and had a rough day at work) so I'll be curious to see where they are next show!
7. Amazing Race--I used to watch this one all the time but then they moved it to Wednesday and it runs the same time as AI results so I don't get to see this one any more. **Thanks Carmen for catching my original mistake :-)
8. Extreme Makeover-Home Edition--yes, this show makes me cry, maybe that's why I watch it. And yes, I like Ty (he's super hyper, but it's great!)
9. The View--I do enjoy watching this if I take a short break in the morning (10-10:15 my time) just to catch them debating "Hot Topics" I am going to miss Meredith and I honestly don't know if I'll watch it when she's gone. Star drives me nuts.
10. Oprah--if she has an interesting topic or a cool guest star, I will watch her. I enjoyed watching her series on Debt Dieting and it taught me a lot on how to manage mine and fiance's budgets so it's worth it!
11. Everybody Loves Raymond--another show I was sad to see go, but there are always repeats on TBS that I catch every once in a while. It's a good show to watch while working out too because you can laugh and you forget how much pain you are putting your body through (haha!)
12. CSI:--LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this show! I love all the characters, I love watching them try to figure things out...I just love it!
13. Without a Trace--this is actually one that fiance enjoys too and he gets excited to watch this one. Not so gory and I really enjoy seeing them put all the pieces together by the end. Although I do not like it when they find out the person is already dead. That's sad :(

American Idol night!

Who do you think did best tonight?

Who do you think will be kicked off?

Let me know after the show. It'll be interesting to see what you all think. I'll post my thoughts after the show!

**For some reason, blogger wouldn't allow me to update last night, however, I do believe that Paris will be going home (actually, I think it's more of a hope...I'm just over her now and I wouldn't buy her CD, that's for sure!) What do you think???

Another Manic Monday

Hello! I had a fairly exciting weekend, but am glad to have a new week started. I have a lot of stuff to accomplish this week and then we have a wedding to attend on Saturday. We are excited about that.

I am excited for a fun-filled TV week. With the finales coming up this month, it'll be exciting to see how the shows end on cliffhangers! Tonight is Prison Break and apparently it is the start of the break (FINALLY!!!) Then it's AI on Tuesday and Wednesday. We have CSI: and Without a Trace on Friday and Desperate Housewives and Grey's Anatomy on Sunday!!! WOOHOO!!!

How was your weekend?
