I can see....

I had my Lasikplus surgery yesterday.  I was pretty nervous beforehand, thankfully J was with me, he knows how to calm my nerves and adores me. My appointment was at 1:15, I was at home and in bed by 3:30. I was quite tired and was able to go right to bed, thankfully that was JUST what the doctor ordered. Where I woke up a few hours later and was almost perfect. My eyes felt fine, my vision was like I was under water, but hardly any pain, that was very nice.  I woke up this morning and felt empowering, I could see, I could drive for the first time with out the help of contacts or glasses.

J has HIS surgery on the 20th, I am honored to be on the other side of the fence for his surgery. I love being able to take care of him like he does me.

I am finally feeling better. This weekend was a nice relaxing weekend full of babysitting and a baby shower. I babysat almost all Saturday for two families, and I normally get my kid fix after I leave, but this time was different. this time I had a yearning to stay and hold the kids. I have a feeling J and I will start a family as soon as we can.  I hate the fact that we have to look at our budget and make sure we can afford it, but I have a good feeling we will make it through any and everything.

I had a Lasik screening today, and I was successfully passed onto the surgery. I made my appointment November 13th, and as I was telling J the date I realized something. I am getting my eyes done on Friday the 13th!!!!!!! now, should I change it? or just go on being excited and know nothing bad will happen. :) I think I will just keep going on and be happy that technology has brought us this far. I was downright fascinated when I saw the unbelievable-detailed photos of my eyes. I even asked the doctor if he could email them to me, I hope he remembers. I'll post them if he does.

Lazy day and random notes

So I have been kind-of-sort-of sick for the last week, and I am "sick" of being sick so I took the full day off today and tomorrow, but I am hopeful that I will feel better to go in tomorrow.

J and I were able to talk a little bit about wedding last night. We moved back out ceremony start to 4 pm, hopefully that will work better. I adore this man. We are in the process of finalizing our wedding invites, and man I will be one happy camper when they are done or at least at the printer. I am over invites.  We are just under 5 months to go and we have quite a bit of planning done, so that nice.

random note: I am watching a Law and Order, I hate when you are a half hour into it and you just now realize that you have seen this episode and you hated the ending...onto flipping channels again

other random note: I think I am going to order papa johns for lunch-dinner, I just got a email coupon, and I cant pass coupons up!

This weekend I am babysitting for two families, on Saturday and two parties to go to on Sunday, a baby shower and J's sister's engagement party.  Its going to be a long weekend, but a very eventful one.

Until next time blogger world.

a first for everything.

Everyone has a blog, so I guess I should start one.
but will people follow me?
will I be interesting enough to follow?
will I update it enough?
whatever shall I write about?

Well about me.
I am a 20-something engaged lady living in Saint Paul, but if you follow me I am sure you will already know this. So something you dont know. hummmm, well that is the hard part, I am a open book I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve and well that can never be a good thing.
I am engaged to an amazing man, with an equaling amazing family. I heart all of them. I met J back in 2002, I was a Roseville Princess then, and well I am still a royal pain in the ass. We broke up but fast forward 5 years and we are back and ready to hit the road of life together.

J and I are getting married in 135 days, but really who is counting!? I can not wait for the planning to be over, for us to be on our honeymoon, but really I cant wait to be married to the man of my dreams. We are planning on starting a family fairly soon after we get married, at least we'll try sometime in the later half of 2010. So in between planning the wedding I am also planning the family part of it.

I am trying to start the "wife" duties now, practice makes perfect right? I am planning meals for dinners and lunches. J is busy doing "man" things like remodeling our house.

We finally have a living and dinner room. We painted the walls, re-did all of the base boards as well as sanded the floors. We have also put carpet up in our master bedroom and painted one of the downstairs bedrooms. We still have to paint the other bedroom, re-do both the kitchen and bathroom....and work on the outside of the house. (and THAT is why we are registering at Home Depot, among a few other places for the wedding!!)
