Image hosting by PhotobucketAfter researching numerous dj's we finally signed one this week. I have to tell you that the ranges in prices were from $500 to $2000 for the evening! WOW...But phoning many payed off. I got a feel for the services offered , lighting, animation or not, willingness to negociate, overtime charged or no limits and ofcourse experience. I got huge quotes from big production companys to find out that they often contract out for a lesser price to smaller businesses...I needed a GOOD dj because as far as I am concerned..a big wedding with over 100 guest could almost get away with a bad dj lol, with all the noise and ppl it can still work, but with a small group of 30ish..a bad dj would be amplifyed a 100 times!!..BUT I was not willing to cut off an arm to get one I felt confident in.

The gentleman that I found had done alot of contract work for some of the big production companies I had already gotten high quotes on. He also had a reem of photos and references to show us when we went to meet him....very professional and willing to give us a good price because we were getting married on Friday...and also quaranteed that he would be the one doing the evening and not one of his employees...We really felt confident about signing with this man and glad that he was within our budget. Even with the inclusion of pipping in music to the ceremony room then the cocktail room! Let's all hope he is as good as he says he is lol. OH YEAH....AND he is BILINGUAL! LOL

We also found Chris' suit this week! A nice beige linen suit like he has always wanted. It will look great next to my bronze dress with ivory....and was within our budget.

My candle centerpiece things arrived yesterday! I am so pleased! They are as lovely as the photo promised. They will look great on my tables and worth paying the difference in conversion to canadian funds, plus the extra shipping AND another duty of $11 when they got here lol...even with all that they will cost me less then having done small flower arrangements on each table. I also plan to raffle off all but one of them during the evening to those who would like to take one home. I don't need to keep them all lol.

SO...all the big stuff is booked!! I am relieved and pretty damn proud of myself lol. It's now a matter of details, fittings, shoes and some flowers.


GETTING A DRESS FOR CLEO!!!..........OMG............HELP ME LORD!!

We are going shopping this Saturday (tomorrow!) with Cleo to TRY and find a dress she could live with wearing and even ......should I dare say it....LIKE aswell!.....I am hoping all the planets are properly alined and the moon is doing what it's supposed to in order for the cosmic carma to weigh on the POSITIVE side of this Saturday for this rare anomally to happen!!!


I will let you know if it helped after tomorrow.

On saturday we went back to the Hotel and went over a few details, tweaked the menu (add ons lol) and signed the contract!! It was a relief really and I have to say that doing business with a 5 star hotel really shows. What service. Yes you pay for it but honestly with all my research they were and are quite comperable to the middle range hotel services offered elsewhere... so for anyone out there thinking of planning an event...don't automatically disregard someplace you may think is out of your pricerange. Like us you may be pleasantly surprised.

On top of that, our Hotel contact is a sweetheart. She asked us about another idea concerning the cocktail hour after the ceremony being in the ceremony room. We had been going by the idea from her co-worker who had shown us the rooms the saturday before. We didn't want ppl going into the reception room untill the apropriet time so just figured cocktails could be served in the same room as the ceremony. Image hosting by PhotobucketShe suggested that we use yet another room next to that, same brick/stone as the others but it would be more comfortable with a few chairs and tables with the punch and platters . Rather then staying in the ceremony room where the chairs were all arranged like a church it would be more cramped. I was your going to set up and give us ANOTHER room at no extra cost? Yes she says, it's not booked anyway lol.....Remember, they aren't charging the fee for the ceremony room either. So you see, just those 2 rooms usually cost $200 to rent each. All 3 rooms are in the same area so my guests just go from one room to the other . We are so thrilled to be able to give our guests and ourselves a great place for a wedding!

I asked her about my centre pieces and if I or a friend could bring them to the reception room
earlier in the day to set them up along with my wedding favors and such.Image hosting by Photobucket She told me that I had no reason to delegate a friend or even show my face there before my wedding lol. She said that we could either the day before or the day of, bring her everything including my sign in book and pen, and anything else I could think of. It was HER JOB to do all that for me. She would by then know all the little details I wanted and she was paid to take care of it all. I have to say it is really cool to be told that.

We get together 3 weeks before W day and go over all those little details.

THEN Chris and I went down St. Hubert street. It is the wedding boutique street of Montreal. I was hoping to find a dress or get a good idea on one. Well, first boutique, first dress!!! Yes folks you read that right! I tryed on a second one that was nice and had another to try on aswell but didnt bother, I put the first one back on again and YUP its the one. Chris and I both loved it. It is NOT a wedding dress. I did not want a traditional wedding dress. This dress is a deep bronze/copper colour with ivory inlay that shows through a seam that opens at the top and down the front from the midway to the floor. It really is beautiful and the colour looks great on me. They have to order my dress though. The one I tryed on was just not fitting the bust area lol. I will have it in ample time for a fitting. I actually found a dress online thats almost identical to it but they dont have my colour choice. I was able then to give my mom and sister and a few friends a good idea of the dress but I will not post it in here. I would rather show u real pics of me wearing my dress later lol...SO THERE!

I have to add that my wonderful fiancee told the dress shop lady to make a note on the dress order for an extra square piece of the bronze fabric. She asked why...he said it was to fold up to have it sticking out of his label suit pocket so we could match. AWEEE WHAT A GUY EH. Stop rolling your eyes! Most men wouldn't even have thought of that.

He will not be wearing a tux. He would like to wear a nice linen suit if we can find one in our price range. Something he will be able to wear again. So that is the next shopping trip.

I have been pricing dj's for the last 2 days. Wow what a range in prices! They go from $550 to $1500 so far. I don't want to be cheep. I want a good dj with experience but I am not willing to cut off an arm to get one lol. A big wedding with 100 or more guest could almost ....I say, ALMOST have a crappy dj since there are alot of ppl making noice and such but with a small 30 to 40 group, a bad dj would be amplifyed and really blow it lol. SO I am still not decided on who, but I know it will be in the 700 to 800 range. But that will also include music piped into the ceremony room. I want classical music in the background just so it doesn't echo in there lol. N
o precesion music or anything like that , just beautiful music. Image hosting by Photobucket

Oh Oh and we god our invitations aswell!...Told you we are on a roll. Keep in mind, I have only one day a week to do outside stuff lol... So we really got alot done on Thursday. We had a look at what invitations would cost if we had them done and frankly its rediculous for the small mount we need. The more u need the less they cost ofcourse but for us that isn't cost affective. We decided to get a kit that u print out yourself with your printer. They are very nice and we saved $150 that way AND we can even do some in French and English instead of trying to make them all bilingual...I only like being long winded in my blogs lmao!

Man this was going to be a short update on things happening this much for that lol

Wednesday, March 22, 2006


I don't know if I should be more stressed or less stressed lol. Things are starting to fall into place so I am relieved about that. I am starting to believe that I am kinda going to pull this off. I sound so sure of myself don't I ........NOT!...

Tomorrow we go back to the Hotel to put a big deposit on the reception. Whoo Hoo. I also found some beautiful center piece candles on ebay for my reception tables. AND I found a great deal on a silver plated cake carving set that is new but looks antique. I can have them engraved here.
We had previosly sent in all our documentation for a civil wedding at the Montreal court house but when we found we could marry in that beautiful Le Cave room..we got intouch with them to see about paying the extra for an officient to do a ceremony outside the courthouse like it says on the web site. WELL.... got word that they DON'T do that. We would have to get an independant Officient. .......Good to know!!!

The fact that my wedding will be on a Friday has come in handy for so many reasons so was SO meant to be lol. We found an officient. It will cost only abit more then what we would have paid at the courthouse but I am already convinced that it will be VERY worth it. I spoke to the gentleman this evening. He was so nice, and wanted to know all about us. He was so inthusiastic and asked so many questions, anyone can tell he loves doing this. I will not be the 5 minute affair we would have had in the court house. He was even saying it would be atleast 40 mins lol....We meet him in person on Tuesday evening to go over legalities and get to know us more.

He told me that the ceremony was for us but also for the special ppl in our lives attending. To feel like they know you even more and become a part of your special day. The other great thing about him is that he is bilingual. We will be able to do it all in both french and english. My guest will be almost half and half with only one or two in the whole mix who speak both. I am relieved because I didnt want ppl to feel left out or clueless about what was going on. I was very impressed by the man and I am even happier if that's possible lol.

This is one of my favorite photo's of Chris and really shows how we feel. Every little thing that is accomplished with our plans has us beaming together. Chris and I have decided everything together . He is as thrilled with the candles as I am. I love that he wants to be part of everything and the whole day will reflect OUR tastes and wants.

I have also been having a blast online with a few buddies while we go through reems of wedding sites looking at dresses and getting ideas.

Before I end this post I want to say a huge....WHOOO HOO
SHAN!!! .....My buddy officially became a NURSE today!! Way to go!!! We all knew you could do it.

We went to 3 hotels on Friday evening to see their reception rooms but we both had our heart set on the InterContinental Hotel in Montreal...It was actually the first place I saw in my research online for receptions. I was looking for SMALL sized reception rooms since I will only have from 30 to 40 ppl tops. I didn't want my small crowd to be swallowd up by a room to big for us. I was hoping for an intimate but special setting .
When I saw these rooms my first reaction was AWE.. this is what we want..then it was AWE.. this we can't afford for sure.....I was wrong thankfully. I called to get more info and although this is a 5 star hotel and very most places, they are very helpful and offer many suggestions to fit your budget and we were very pleasantly surprised. This will make it all possible and they even suggested we have the ceremony there for no extra cost. ...

The room I initially fell in love with is the one u see here with the fresco's on the wall. It is named LE CAVE. It was built in 1886...and it is a very intimate room. I could have had my whole party in there had I not wanted dancing. So instead, I will have just the ceremony in there. Ours is a short civil ceremony that was going to be done in the courthouse but this was a far better idea. This way everyone can be with us. .....The room will be set up with chairs on each wall with an aisle down the middle ofcourse so try to erase the table in the picture from your mind lol.

Image hosting by Photobucket

After the ceremony there will be cocktails for my guests while Chris and I go off to get some photo's taken by my sister. After that's done, my reception will be in the room next to Le Cave....
It is called LES VOUTES... this room is similar but no fresco's. It is also abit bigger. As you can see below. My tables will be set up like that but only 4 round ones and a straight honour table only taking up half the room. The other half will be used for a bar, the dj and dancing so its just perfect.
We were both giddy with the prospect of having it there. It's also such a beautiful Hotel with so much to see that it's worth spending a night just once whether getting married or not anyway. To get an idea, click on the name above for the direct link to the hotel and see the photo tour. It's incredible.

Now I am sifting through florists sites...Like the rest...I want simple and elegant. I don't think it has to cost an arm and a leg. Luckily I only have 5 tables to dress up. As beautiful as the tables and linens are in this place I don't need to do anything extravagant.
We went to china town after the hotel visit. We were looking for small container ideas for my wedding favors. Online in many sites , the things I liked were to pricey and x adds up. We found what we needed at a fraction of the cost and even nicer then what I had seen else where. I won't go into what they are because it would spoil the little gift surprize for some who read my blog and will be at my wedding lol.

Well, that's all for today. We look forward to getting all the little details ironed out this week and contract officially signed with hotel.

SO...what do u all think?

Saturday, March 18, 2006


I recieved this in an email and just had to share it. Like Chris and I, there are moments in reading this that you will go AHHHH that's where that came from! LOL......ENJOY!

The next time you are washing your hands or complain because thewater temperature isn't just how you like it, think about how thingsused to be. Here are some facts about the 1500s:Most people got married in June because they took their yearlybath in May, and still smelled pretty good by June. However, they werestarting to smell, so brides carried a bouquet of flowers to hide thebody odour. Hence the custom today of carrying a bouquet when gettingmarried.

Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water. The man ofthe house had the privilege of the nice clean water, then all the othersons and men, then the women and finally the children Last of all thebabies. By then the water was so dirty you could actually lose someonein it. Hence the saying, "Don't throw the baby out with the bath water.

"Houses had thatched roofs - thick straw piled high, with no woodunderneath. It was the only place for animals to get warm, so all thecats and other small animals (mice, bugs) lived in the roof. When itrained it became slippery and sometimes the animals would slip and offthe roof. Hence the saying "It's raining cats and dogs.

"There was nothing to stop things from falling into the house.This posed a real problem in the bedroom where bugs and other droppingscould mess up your nice clean bed. Hence, a bed with big posts and asheet hung over the top afforded some protection. That's how canopy bedscame into existence.

The floor was dirt. Only the wealthy had something other thandirt. Hence the saying "dirt poor."

The wealthy had slate floors thatwould get slippery in the winter when wet, so they spread thresh (straw)on floor to help keep their footing. As the winter wore on, they addedmore thresh until when you opened the door it would all start slippingoutside. A piece of wood was placed in the entranceway. Hence the sayinga "thresh hold."

(Getting quite an education, aren't you?)

In those old days, they cooked in the kitchen with a big kettle that always hung over the fire. Every day they lit the fire and addedthings to the pot. They ate mostly vegetables and did not get muchmeat. They would eat the stew for dinner, leaving leftovers in the potto get cold overnight and then start over the next day. Sometimes stewhad food in it that had been there for quite a while. Hence the rhyme,"Peas porridge hot, peas porridge cold, peas porridge in the pot ninedays old."

Sometimes they could obtain pork, which made them feel quitespecial. When visitors came over, they would hang up their bacon to showoff. It was a sign of wealth that a man could "bring home the bacon."They would cut off a little to share with guests and would all sitaround and "chew the fat."

Those with money had plates made of pewter. Food with high acidcontent caused some of the lead to leach onto the food, causing leadpoisoning death. This happened most often with tomatoes, so for the next400 years or so, tomatoes were considered poisonous.

Bread was divided according to status. Workers got the burntbottom of the loaf, the family got the middle, and guests got the top,or "upper crust."

Lead cups were used to drink ale or whisky. The combinationwould sometimes knock the imbibers out for a couple of days. Someonewalking along the road would take them for dead and prepare them forburial. They were laid out on the kitchen table for a couple of days andthe family would gather around and eat and drink and wait and see ifthey would wake up. Hence the custom of holding a "wake."

England is old and small and the local folks started running outof places to bury people. So they would dig up coffins and would takethe bones to a "bone-house" and reuse the grave. When reopening thesecoffins, 1 out of 25 coffins were found to have scratch marks on theinside and they realized they had been burying people alive. So theywould tie a string on the wrist of the corpse, lead it throughthe coffin and up through the ground and tie it to a bell.Someone would have to sit out in the graveyard all night (the "graveyardshift") to listen for the bell; thus, someone could be "saved by thebell" or was considered a "dead ringer."

And that's the truth... Now, whoever said that History was boring ! ! !

Here is what happened.

I wrapped the present with shakey hands. Knowing I had to do this regardless of how emotional I was and stealing myself for the chance of getting kicked while I was already down but taking that chance only because it could open the door for discussion even if I had to be the one to do it.

I was pulling up to the house just as her daughter and husband and kids were arriving. Her daughter seemed to not be in a great hurry to get out of the car but the kids ran up the steps. I waited in the car for a min, waiting but she stayed in the car talking to her hubby in no hurry (was she just waiting to see what would happen cause her mom filled her in on a problem in our friendship?) probabably.

So I got out and went up the stairs..the kids had gone in. I rang and she was surprised to see me. I smiled and handed her the gift...saying I had bought is long time ago. She stepped out of the house onto the front porch...closing the door behind her. She says...So are u still mad at me for some reason?...I said, I am more hurt then anything. She then says, Why? tell me. I say...I don't want to wreck your bday we can talk when its a better time. She says No, tell me now.

I told her I was hurt..she says me too..I say why? I did nothing..she says me either.
Ok...I mentioned that I had been hurt that she couldn't offer to go later in the day so I could go to the wedding expo...given that it would have been the original plan had I not changed plans to help her out.
She said, she couldnt change it cause her son was waiting for her. I asked her what would have happened had I not changed my plans then..she said she wouldn't have gone at all.
(She seemed to be clueless at how bad that sounded.) She is on the defensive about everything. Also mentioning its not fair for the sitter had she changed plans....I was like What?..she would have just made more money had she been to my place first then hers later.

I went on to say that it really wasn't about missing the expo, just her total lack of helpfulness ...she says heck, I am the one who called to tell you when it was. (again...why? I don't know...she had the sitter and knew I wouldnt be able to go ) Her still on the defensive.
I then said.... All that aside..
(my voice is shaking, I know all the blood has left my face..I am trying really hard to stay in control).
..what hurt the most is when you said I could go next yr...AREN'T YOU GETTING MARRIED NEXT YEAR?......
I just looked at her and said...You are my best friend, we have talked about all of this for months on an almost daily basis since oct atleast. When we finally got the ok from france that he was divorsed. (I forgot to remind her that at her partylite evening a week before, she introduced me to a friend of hers saying..this is my friend getting married this June)

OH PULEASE she what ...(then on the defensive again)

I then said...I guess you aren't the friend I thought u were. I was deeply hurt by the whole thing.

She was again...defending was gobbledeegoop to me by this time. She didn't want to hear what I was saying at all, or just step back and realize that her friend was Hurt...her pride wouldnt let her. She had to be right no matter what.

This was all done quickly enough and by this time her daughter and hubby had to be taking their sweet time coming up the walk then stopping at the top where they were not giving a seconds thought about leaving us some privacy.

I was already feeling horrible and just wanted to cry...I didn't need an audiance...I just said....
I hope you enjoy your gift and have a nice bday...(this with an extremely shakey voice and not giving her daughter and hubby the benefit of me looking at them. )

Lise just took the gift and said OOKAY in a way that sounded like she didn't care at all.

I calmly (all be it, shakily) turned and walked down the steps and to my car. Knowing that I did all I could do and was the bigger person for it.
The ball is in her court....
I was even hoping that after her bday she would use the excuse of the gift to call and thank me and open the discussion.
It has been 2 days and I guess that says it all.

My heavy heart will grow lighter with time.
I am just really sad that her pride, or need to be right, or just absense of heart leads her to losing a long friendship...not being able to step back and think, maybe I did something to hurt my friend...I should try to understand and say sorry ........
I guess our yrs of friendship arent worth that trouble.

I don't need a friend like that in my life.

For those who have followed this story and stopped to comment...THANK YOU I have saveured all your comments and look forward to more.

Another short installment...It's her bday today..and I want to be the bigger person and wish her a happy bday...Why? Well..since our nail day, she hasn't called once...AND she didn't call last week for MY bday.
Not because she forgot....No, she actually tryed to get the sitter for saturday evening ..sat afternoon, she called at the sitters place but the sitter was here...sitters hubby called her here to inform her of her call so sitter called Liz to ask her when she needed her and Liz asked for that same night..sitter told her that she couldnt because I was out celebrating my bday till late.

She did NOT call me the next day on my actual bday either nor all this week. She even told the sitter the other day that she hadn't called on my bday.
I am still trying to wrap my head around how she can justify her pouting for something she herself did?!?....

The thing is...I bought her a bday gift 3 months ago...I know your thinking wtf lol....But I do that sometimes if I see exactly what would be perfect for a certain person...and wait till its their bday or xmas. SOOO

I had planned to be the bigger person and call her to wish her a happy bday....but do I dare go one step farther and actually give her the present?...Afterall...its not much good to someone else...and part of me selfishly hopes it makes her feel even worse ....I know its wrong but hey...I am still really hurt here....some may think giving a present to someone who hurt me ...STUPID and to a certain extent I agree...but I can also walk away knowing I was the bigger person...and it could also provoke her to THINK more then she obviously has been...about our friendship.

OR NOT... but IF not...thats ok too. I will have done the right think and know that it is aways the better choice. It can only help me in closing the door to that friendship and move on. Up till now it is still very painfully on my mind.

Tell me your thoughts and what u think...I really appreciated all the imput I got so far...much of it helped so much on so many levels...

WHERE DO PPL GET THEIR MONEY? can ppl afford to have lavish weddings? Ok, there are still traditional weddings where the parents pay for everything. Even then...I would want to die before costing my parents that much money for one day. Yes its a special day but lets be logical. I can think of a million other more pratical things to use that kind of money for.

I realize it probably has everything to do with my age but at the same time..I could be using just that fact to justify having an expensive wedding...You know the whole, I'm finally getting married at the ripe age of 43 so I better make it count argument lol.

I am so not like that. But I do like good value for my money. I also like classy and understated but those come with a price.

I am thankfully having a small intimate group of ppl for my wedding supper. Less then 40. But even with that amount of ppl...many places ask for a minimum of 50 ppl..then there is the damn menu choices!! 80$ per person is rediculous...OK, so I have never organized a wedding or big supper before but give me a break..Oh and some places charge MORE for every person BECAUSE there is UNDER 50 !!..ARG!! I realize they want it to be worth their trouble but PULEASE.. it's not like the prices aren't already inflated.

Ok, this was the first installment of Wedding Venting lol. Bare with me...and rest assured that I can't wait to be married to my man. I will certainly have more things to bitch about but there will hopefully be more to rejoice about aswell.

Here it is , my BIRTHDAY BLOG and boy what a DOOZY! OH and yeah, I was told I HAD to put a bday pic of me up so there it is. Taken just before we went out------->

We went for a walk in a huge mall we like instead of doing the groceries like we always was my bday afterall, it could wait. Didn't buy anything, just hurry, just fun.

We then went to one of our favorite resturants, Le Baton Rouge, they have the best ribs in the Galaxy. Then had enough room for a yummy dessert.

We finally decided that we could go to a movie anytime so to make a night of it we opted to go to the Montreal Casino...It's really a beautiful place. Chris had never been and the last time I had gone was 3 or 4 yrs ago with my sister. The Casino was actually built as the France Pavilion for EXPO 67...then later turned into the Montreal u can see by the pics, it really is an impressive building.

Pretty cool eh. The parking is underneath and inside the Casino, there is 5 levels (floors) that are all open..The escalators going up seem like they are floating in the middle of it all, so u can see all the levels up or down. It also has a clear floor with water underneath that flows to a waterfall and pond in the middle of the Casino. It's pretty impressive. They plan on building a new Casino in Montreal but I sure hope they keep this one open aswell. Would be a pity to lose this unless they use the building for something else we would want to visit.

SO...we got there around 7pm and get started with $100...(our limit) no need to blow a bunh of money lol....., 50 each to play on the machines. We try a cpl machines and have fun because they keep giving us tokens that make our money last..then I hit a win that meant that it was more then the machine gives out...ended up being $375.00!!! Had to sign for it...we were like WOW...this is great AND we had even more money to play with. I put 2x 100 bills in my bra lol and the rest in 20's to play with ...WHOO HOOO.

Went on to try out other machines then sat down at one with a Cleopatra theme...and the Cleo marks were winning spins I thought, with my daughter's name being Cleo, it could be put a $20 in there and hit Max bet, not thinking to look first realizinf too late that the Max bet was 45 x 25 cents, thus a whole $11.25 bet!!!....BUT I WON $255.00!!! HAHAHA so had to sign for that too lmao...we were just goofy by this time... SO with this I put more in the bra and we had fun trying out different games we normally wouldn't have tryed...we had so much fun and knowing we had money ahead was awesome.

Finally around 11:40pm I sat down to a last machine, put in the last $20 I wanted to spend. After this one we were going to head home. Well, this machine kept giving me tokens...and I just knew my luck was still with me. I won that $20 back so many times but still I knew and said to Chris...I bet u that at midnight, this machine will give me it's max payout...I feel it in my bones. He laughed and said, with tonight, I don't doubt it one bit. .......


OMG...I have never won anything like that before. Let alone the first win, then second...OMG!! We were agog.. mouth gapping flabbergasted lmao. .....

So I blew $25 in another machine and had $900 bucks in 100 dollar bills in my bra for the way home. HOW COOL IS THAT?! We had the goofiest looks on our face all the way home and broke out in spontanious laughter every few miles lol.

I have already informed Chris that we are going back NEXT year same date lol.

Today I woke to fresh roses and fresh croissants made by Chris. YUMMM. I also got some decadent chocolates from my daughter and a beautiful greecian antique looking pedistal bowl for displaying fruit or whatever I want in it. I have been spoiled to say the least.

We plan to stay in pj's and watch the OSCARS tonight ... I could not ask for a better birthday! I have had a wonderful weekend.

Thursday, March 02, 2006


YES FOLKS, this Sunday is the BIG Day. March 5th!! It happens once a year and it's a big deal. I always look forward to this event with great anticipation. Some years more then others, just depends how I feel. I always try to treat myself on this day and I DEFINATELY get dressed up and put my face on! The official Time is around 8pm I believe. YES you guessed it!! IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!!!.....

You seriously didn't think I was talking about the OSCARS were you?!?

I was the first of 3 children from my parents, to come into this world, on March 5th, 1963, around 8pm, 43 years ago.

This will be a great year for me. It's an odd numbered year, I prefer those, don't ask me why, I just do. Yes I'm odd, hense the odd year fetish.

I will also be getting married to the love of my life. Doesn't get much better then that.

We haven't planned anything special for my bday. Actually we are going out Saturday as per our usual day to have the sitter come over. Same ole, grocery shopping and errands but we will get a nice meal somewhere with an AWESOME desert for ME ME ME lol. I don't need candles..just give me cake!!.......Just to make the day different, we may take in a movie ...whooo hooo, actually staying out till LATER.. stop the presses!!! lol..

It works out perfectly this year...I can celebrate on saturday so sunday is more relaxed .hehe, I am NOT making supper AND I can watch the OSCARS lol. SHHH don't tell anyone. (Hey I love to diss the big lips and fashion faux pas, like everyone else).
