Edited: I didn't realize my MySpace was set to private, so it is fixed now, and anyone that would like can go and look at the pics!
We had such an awesome day! The weather was gorgeous. The reception rocked! One day I will do a better post describing it, but for now I will just post some pics. The wedding was on Saturday, and Sunday we got dressed up again and went into the city (Philly) to take some pictures at some of the "you went to Philly so you have to take your picture there" type of places.
Well, I have tried and tried to get blogger to post my pics, but it just isn't happening, so instead I will give you a link and hope that works! This is the link to my MySpace (Yes, I know I'm a grown woman!) page. My MySpace If you click on the link near the top for pics, the first 2 albums will be wedding photos. ("Wedding 9~20~2008" and "Tagged Photos")

Yesterday Jon and I got married!!! It was a gorgeous day, we had an AWESOME time, all the guests truly enjoyed themselves, and I am exhausted! I will be back soon to put up some pictures once we have gone through all of them.

Warning: This post lacks rhythm, flow, and proper structure. It also goes here, there, and everywhere!
So, the wedding is on Saturday. Yeah. This Saturday. I have a crap load of stuff to do. My head is spinning. My brother is coming to town Thursday night with his gf. I need to clean.
We found bowls for our centerpieces a few months ago at Michael's. We didn't buy them at the time because we weren't 100% sure how many tables we were going to have, so we didn't know how many bowls we would need. They were 7.99 at Michael's. Well, I was at Wal-Mart shortly after that and the exact same bowls were 3.98. Well, duh, I will buy them at Wal-Mart. I bought one bowl to make sure the ducks fit in it. (Bride and groom rubber ducks will be in the bowls) Yesterday I went to buy the other 5 that we need, and they only had one! Of course they did. So now I have to find 4 more bowls by Friday. And now that I know I can get them for $4, I will NOT pay $8. That probably means that I will drive all over the place to different Wal-Mart's, wasting gas. I know. I'm just crazy like that.
I decided to make little tags to tie to the bottles of wedding bubbles. Well, I have 48 bottles and apparently 5 yards of ribbon is not enough! I managed to do 17 last night before I ran out of ribbon. Yep. I am a genius!
I have about 18,000 loads of laundry to do. Tomorrow I will be without power from, according the management office, at least 8-6. Did I mention that the kids do school online now?? I plan on going back and forth between Panera Bread and the library, with a quick stop to the doctor's office to find out what the rash is that is covering both of my kids, and making their faces swell.
That's enough for now.

I have been tagged to do a meme! Dev at If you want to plan your life, plan it in pencil!! Since I am too busy with other stuff around here (wedding, school, nervous breakdowns) to compose an intelligent post, I am all to happy to do this one!
1. How long have you been blogging?
I went back to look at my posts, and apparently I have been doing this for 2 years now. Of course I only have 70 posts, so I'm not that committed!!
2. What are the good things blogging has brought to your life?
I have no clue.
3. What would you consider the pitfalls?
Not sure about that. I do know that it can be discouraging when I read blogs that have SOOOO much traffic, and then I look at mine that has next to none.
4. Tell us about your blog name. Ever think of changing it? If so, to what? Why?
It started out as "Yeah, whatever" because that is probably what I say the most. That is still my url, but I did change just the title part to "Welcome to the stories of my life..."
5. Knowing what you know now, was starting a blog a good thing for you? Why or why not?
I don't think it has changed things much either way.
6. How do you think blogging, bloggers, or the blogosphere has changed since you started?
As Dev said, I think these questions are geared toward more experienced bloggers.
8. Ultimately, what would you like your blog to accomplish for you or others?
I would like to get better about recording things in my daily life so that we can go back years from now and read it.
Who are you? Really?
1. Name something or a few things that bug you and expound. We want your unfettered opinion(s). Shouldn’t be blog related.
~Food on my hands
~Paying full price for anything at the grocery store
2. Tell us about one of your best childhood memories.
I had a pretty crappy childhood.
3. Describe your perfect day.
Not waking up to the alarm clock.
4. Do you have a hobby that you love?
I love to read. Lately I just don't seem to do it as much.
5. Tell us the best and the worst thing about being you.
The best thing ~ I am awesome!!
The worst thing ~ I am awesomely bitchy!!
6. What’s the most embarrassing thing that ever happened to you? We want all the details.
There is not enough time for this question!
7. What blog related thing bugs you?
I'd rather not say. It will definitely offend people.
How old are you? 33 4 day ago!
Married? In exactly 1 week I will be!!
If so, homeschool, private, or public? This is the first year of semi-homeschooling.
Favorite season? Fall
Favorite pass time?
Reading, tv, doing nothing at all.
Blood on Blood by Bon Jovi
Mac or PC? We have both.
Dog or Cat? 2 cats. (and 4 lizards and a frog)
Salt or Pepper? Both!!
Vanilla or Chocolate? Chocolate
Diet Coke, Sweet Tea or Evian? Diet Pepsi!
Steak, Chicken or Shrimp? Steak or chicken. I don't do seafood.
I am now supposed to tag some of my readers to do this...Well, the only other one that I know reads this is Kristi, so go for it!!
