1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you know me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.

this week WEDDING STRESS has started to set in! i still didnt have a dress so i had to go and order one from the only place i knew i could get one on time and that it would fit me. i knew this because this is where i ordered the one for natalies wedding. even though it wasnt exactly what i wanted i had to do it because time was running out. i had to make the centerpieces. all 19 of them. i still need to find shoes and i just thought of the fact that steve doesnt have a tux ordered and since he will be walking her down the aisle i think he really needs one. im not sure if we have time to order one though. i have to go and pay for all the stuff at the club today and i need to do something about my hair! i had it colored at the first of the week and i tried a new color. NOT SMART with a wedding coming up! i said i wanted it a little lighter and i got a lot darker! it is almost black! i need to go to the grocery store and buy LOTS OF FOOD because there will be LOTS OF PEOPLE here! ive been trying to get all of this stuff done because megan is coming tonight and i know we will have a lot of last minute stuff to do next week. also mandy and the grandbabies are coming tonight and staying until after the wedding. i want to have some time to spend with them, too. natalie and matt will be coming in the morning for the shower. wednesday mother, laressie, and sonja will be flying in. thursday most of steves family will be coming. notice all of the ! and capital letters in this post. can you feel the anxiety? what am i doing here on the computer! i have so much to do!

steve and i started weight watchers on tuesday. i weighed myself this morning and i had lost 3 lbs! yesterday, the 4th, wasnt a very good day for me. we went to a party and there was a lot of good food. there was really no way of counting points because i hadnt made the food and didnt know what went in to everything. im sure i ate over my points anyway. today i didnt do really great either. we are going to start our week on sunday now so tommorrow im really going to have to get back on the stick. finding out that i had lost 3 lbs was very encouraging for me!


since yesterday was the 4th of july ive been thinking about patriotism. nothing makes you more patriotic then living in another country. you come to realize that we live in the best country there is! i remember when we came back from living in iran i used to cry every time i heard the national anthem. even visiting another country can give you a taste of this. its nice to visit other places but there is no other place id rather live!
