It’s almost August! Eeek! Always seems like winter drags on and on, and we long to see that vivid green grass, and blooming flowers, only to have a fly by in a flash! Guess this year our entire summer has been counting down until the wedding.. lol
Adjusting to get back in the swing for the week.. Erik & I had a bridal shower on Sunday. He wasn’t exactly sure what to expect, however I think he really did have a good time, and seemed to be extremely excited about his new coffee maker & grinder. 😉 That will sure beat him having to use a baggie and spoon to crush the coffee beans! haha.. We received so many wonderful gifts yesterday and they will all come in perfectly as we make our house into a home. We are so appreciative of everyone taking the time to make it to the shower and show us your love & support! We truly have great family & friends, that’s for sure!
Kaylor is getting excited that her 6th birthday is almost here! She’s been begging for those shoes that have the wheels in them, but I just have a feeling that they would get her into more trouble than it’s worth. lol.. a.k.a rolling through our house on the new wood and ceramic tile floors, rolling through school, nah… Don’t think we’re going to tempt that one! Her party is this Sunday at the park, and she is super excited about that! We bought the cake pan for her special cake that I’ll be making her, and also all of the icing tip & couplers to decorate it… I’ve never done this kind of thing before, but we tried it out last night, and it seemed to work! I made the good ole’ REAL icing as most would call it… Ohhhh my! I can see why it’s so good! haha.. Oh well, a kid only gets a birthday once a year, right?!? I brought the cake into work today, and it’s near gone and everyone said it was delicious, so I guess it was a success! Now I’ve just gotta keep the recipe I used down pat.. lol I also spent a few hours in the kitchen tonight baking another surprise for her party… I won’t tell for those of you who will be attending 😉 I will take lots of pics for those of you who miss out though! hehee..
We are going to apply for our marriage license over lunch tomorrow… Wow, talk about how close the wedding is and how real, sinking in! haha.. Nah, actually the legality of it doesn’t have nearly the effect of saying vows to one another, and uniting ourselves together w/ God.. That’ll be the real factor! =)
Well, wrapping this one up… It’s 11pm, I’ve just sat down to do some work, and I’ve got a load of clothes to fold before heading to bed… I need about 2 more hours in the evenings, and I would get so much more done! Night!
