Check, check, check!

Happy Friday everyone!

I don't know about all of you, but I feel like lately my life is one big whirlwind of stuff to do.  Not necessarily bad stuff, but there's a lot going on.  I blame the wedding. :-)

As much as I love the planning process of making an event happen, I feel like the most satisfactory part of planning this wedding is when I get to check off a box on my to do list. Dress shopping? Check! Venue? Check!  We finally figured out our save the dates and invitations last week and I got such a rush out of checking this off the list.  I know I have so much more to go to get this done, but knowing the end is in sight and at that end I get to see my fiance's smiling face is definitely worth it.

This weekend we go to pick out rental items (tents, place settings etc) and do a tasting with the caterer.  After we figure that out, we're celebrating with going to see the tulips up in Mt. Vernon, check out the street fair and lunch/wine tasting at Carpenter Creek.  Supposedly the weather's planning on cooperating so that makes it all that much sweeter. Although if M has his way we'll be checking out the new Cabelas opening, after all Troy from Swamp People will be there. ;-)

So...any good weekend plans?  And if you're planning a wedding do you feel like this as well?

Happy Birthday & your 30's

Today is M's 30th birthday. Currently he is taking in very important business meetings in Chicago & hoping he can catch an earlier flight home but he's also desperately trying to hold on to his 20's.

I get this.  We celebrated my 30th birthday last year and I did the same thing.  For the 6 months prior to my birthday I was freaking out.  You know, worried that I haven't accomplished enough, that despite being as old as you feel...what if I feel old?  Now I realize that this is how it's going to be with us, every ten years.  I'll go through the motions first and we'll follow up with him.

But despite M being out of town for his birthday, we did manage to do it up right.  We celebrated his birthday last weekend on St. Patrick's Day.  Making sure to get a couple of our friends we went out to a fancy dinner at El Gaucho Bellevue since the one thing he was requesting was a good steak.  Followed it up with a trip to Lucky Strike, a fancy bowling alley and we were laughing our asses off.  Apparently M is the only one who while drinking can still bowl a decent game, and our group of friends have some interesting takes on bowling form.

Monday was also our 4 year anniversary and the day before he left for his trip so I gave him his gifts: a blu ray player and Game of Thrones Season 1.  He was beyond excited, but insisted I set it up while he was gone.  Somehow I'm the tech person in our family. :-)  We also head across the mountains to Yakima for the weekend so he can spend some birthday time with the rest of his family.  I'm hoping for some relaxing and good weather since yet again I woke up this morning to a dusting of snow.  Spring can't come early enough to WA.

Happy birthday M - come home safe tonight.
