Well, I know that I've been neglecting my poor blog as of late.  With some personal stuff that's been going on at home, my hubby and I had to move all of our stuff temporarily until we move into our new place.  So that means I haven't been able to sew or craft or anything, and won't be able to for another month or longer.  Moving is such a pain!
As of right now I'm reading the Anita Blake vampire slayer series.  I'm on book #6 of 18 (wowee!!) right now, and I can't get enough of them! My next series on my list of books to read is the Hunger Games series, I keep hearing great things about it!
So for now I won't be posting anything on the blog until we get settled in.  As Tigger says; TTFN!!

Congratulations Stacie and Mike!

My "little sister" Staci got married today!! Her wedding was pretty small, like mine, and she was ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL. I couldn't believe it! She looked better than I did on my wedding day!!!
Here's a quick picture of myself and the beautiful, blushing bride on her wedding day:

Of course, I was bawling like a baby when her dad and mom walked her down the aisle.  I lost my dad when I was 15, so I always get very emotional when "the walk down the aisle" comes along. Movies, real life, anything; say goodbye to my eye makeup because it's GONE. I'm so emotional. My husband was pretty good about me leaning on his shoulder when the crying commenced, lol.

Again, to my beautiful "little sister", congratulations!! :) Thanks for letting me be part of your special day!!!

Back from vacation

Well, I went down and spent a whole week with my Mom in California.  It was so great being able to see her again, along with all of my friends. 
Mom and I went to church on Sunday morning, and then I went to visit my friend.  He's having a really hard time because his girlfriend who he is ABSOLUTELY in LOVE with broke up with him.  Poor guy.  I'm glad that I was able to spend some time with him and console him a bit.  Sunday afternoon we had a BBQ at mom's house, so some friends came over and it was great to see them!
Monday I went and visited with my friend Tiffany, who is so pregnant she's about to pop!! We had a lot of fun going shopping, and I treated her to a pedicure.  She'll be going crazy with two kids in the house soon, so I wanted to pamper her.
Tuesday Mom and I drove down to San Diego and went to Sea World!! It was SO MUCH FUN! I haven't been there since I was a kid, so it was great spending a whole day together and relaxing, watching the shows and such. We had such a great time! We went to my niece's singing recital afterward and spent the night at my brother's house.  It sure was great to see them again.
Wednesday Mom and I were planning on going to the beach, but it was pretty cold and gloomy so we decided to just head home and spend the day relaxing at home.  We stopped at In N Out on the way home, so of COURSE I had to order some animal style fries!! Yum!!!!! We rented Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I, which was great!! I can't wait for the next one to come out next month!
Thursday Mom and I just relaxed a bit.  I went to see my friend again, since he was pretty down-in-the-dumps.  We watched a movie and then I had to say bye, which was hard because he's such a good friend.  I miss him a lot, hope he's doing OK now.  Mom and I went and ran some errands and then relaxed at home.  I finished the second book in a series that I'm reading, so that was great.
Mom #2 and I went to Disneyland on Friday!!! It was SO  much fun! It happened to be a little chillier than I had anticipated, so I ended up having to get a sweatshirt on the way in. Most of the rides that we went on didn't have that long of a wait, so that was really fun.  I went on the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror for the first time! It was fun! Sure makes you giggle like a kid once you're off!! A lot of the great rides like Indiana Jones, Space Mountain, the Matterhorn, and Peter Pan had such long lines we didn't want to wait.  That's okay!!
Saturday my plane left pretty early in the morning.  I get really bad motion sickness on planes...and I usually didn't up until my last plane ride in October. Funny how things like that sneak up on you as you get older.
It sure was great to see my mom and friends and such, but I sure am glad that I'm home.  I missed my husband a lot, and it was great to give him some hugs and kisses when I got home!
