wow, what a whirlwind weekend! holiday weekends are such fun!
the bridesmaid dress shopping went pretty well. we think we found the perfect dress. it’s only imperfection is that it doesn’t come in chocolate. it comes in a very very dark brown, and a tan, so we might go with either of those shades. here’s a picture of the dress:
the only alteration is that we’re going to add straps, and the bow/waistband will be pink (the rest of the dress will be brown or tan). oh, and for the record, i wear a smaller size than becky in this dress. boo-yah! lol
oh, backing up a bit. I saw Madagascar Friday night. it was pretty lame. not very funny and the plot was extremely simplistic. i was disappointed. so my recommendation is – it’s not worth $9. don’t bother.
i went to a couple graduation parties this weekend too – what fun! i remember when i graduated and how much fun it is! congrats to all of you who graduated this year!!!
sunday afternoon i went to a baseball game with my parents and bethany. i must admit, i so do not go to games for the game. i love the atmosphere and being outside and the sounds and smells and the crowds! and during the 7th inning stretch we sang God Bless America and Take Me Out To The Ballgame. I felt very American.
i did some shopping yesterday and found such wonderful treasures! some denim capris and white shorts (both of which i’ve been looking for for ages! hooray for finding them!). and THE find of the day was an adorable light green denim jacket with white stitching and white buttons that i had seen at Kohls about 6 months ago and had decided that as cute as it was, it just wasn’t worth $25 to me. well, it is now on clearance and i found it again – only this time it was $7.74! woo-hoo!! thanks, Lord, for the little blessings you give!
yesterday afternoon i did some cleaning – cleaned up and cleaned out my room, cleaned the bathrooms, dusted the house, emptied trash cans, scrubbed the tub… and i’ve come to discover that there are few things that i find as gratifying and wonderful as the feeling i have after cleaning house. i love it. i think it’s partially due to the fact that you get to immediately enjoy the fruit of your labors – the clean house! and i’m sure it’s also partially due to my love of all things domestic.
my brother got home last night!!! he had been gone in Pasadena and San Diego since last Thursday at noon. i hadn’t seen him in 5 days! it was jolly good to have him home again.
random thought: it’s pretty pathetic when we think that $2.18 for gas is cheap. Ay, yi, yi.
my mom and dad and i all went to the gym together this morning! and then all four of us had breakfast together before ryan and i headed off to work. and then my daddy took me to lunch! that’s one thing i really love about summer – since Dad’s off school (he’s a teacher), he’s home a ton more and we get to enjoy things as a family , and with Dad, that we don’t normally get to enjoy. he said he wants to take my bro and i to lunch or breakfast at least once a week during the summer. yay!
my work life consists of steve, rich and Together ’05 (or Kum-by-yah ’05 as San Diego is calling it; or Picnic ’05 as Pasadena is calling it; or Calibration as the xangans are calling it ). and it’s quickly becoming more and more Together ’05 as we are currently at, what? T minus 4 weeks? oi vey. i just have to say, i’m certainly looking forward to seeing how God moves in the next 4 weeks b/c it’s going to take much grace and help from Him if everything is going to get done! bring it on! i am eager and prepared to be amazed at the work of His hand!
well, that’s the Andrea update. thanks for tuning in!
