Hi friends.

I returned to Abilene tonight from another weekend in Arlington. The other day, I added up how much I spent on gas during the month of July. It was a slightly depressing amount. A lot of dollars. We'll leave it at that.

This weekend was fun. My mom and I went "wedding shopping." I tried on wedding dresses, which was way much fun. I found one that I really like, but no purchase has been made as of yet. We did make several purchases for wedding ceremony/reception use. Am I allowed to say that I think our wedding is going to be way cute? Because it is. There, I said it. Deal.


Sorry, sometimes it just hits me and I get really excited. Not that that's a bad thing. It's just that for all of my life my wedding day was this fuzzy day off in the far away. And now it's not. And that makes me happy. :) I found my perfect guy and in 307 days, he will become my perfect husband. Forever. This makes me smile.

My house is lonely and quiet right now. Megan is in Arlington for an undetermined amount of time, and new roommate Traci is at work, I assume. I do have my puppy back with me in Abilene, which makes me happy, but she's not much of a conversationalist. Oh well. I should probably just call it bedtime and go to sleep. Goodnight, my loves!

Here are some highlights of my life right now:

  • I just got back from spending 4 days in Las Vegas with Megan and her aunt and uncle. It was very much fun, and also incredibly exhausting. I ended up being the only one of the 4 of us to win any money. I think I came home about $60 better than when I left. Not too shabby, but I'm beginning to second-guess my decision to quit my job in favor of becoming a professional gambler.

  • Emmy has ringworm. Sad day. We discovered a mysterious scaly lesion on her leg a day or two before I left town. Charles took her to the vet and the diagnosis was made. Now she's on 2 different medicines and has to be bathed with special shampoo. (Did I mention how much she hates baths?) She is considered highly contagious to other dogs, so that means she will be spending at least another week on quarantine in Arlington. I feel like a horrible pet parent. (Random sidenote: the prescription bottles that Emmy's medicine came in say her owners are Charles and Brooke Nobles. Fun!)

  • Yesterday, because we wanted to do something besides clean our house, Megan and I took a quick trip to David's Bridal to look at bridesmaids' dresses. The most important discovery that we made is that there are many, many horribly unfortunate-looking bridesmaids' dresses in the world. Some looked like they were inside out. Some were made of what I like to call "mermaid material." And some were just too horrendous for words. There were a few decent looking ones in the mix, so I am hopeful that my friends will not have to stand next to me in trash bag dresses. Megan assures me that she will not wearanything that in any way resembles a tent, nor will she will let me. This is a true friend.

  • I am getting married in 315 days. Just in case you were wondering. :)
