Greg and I have started to receive some wedding gifts in the mail (as well as my eBay items – they count!)!
Tonight I received the following from Crate and Barrel:
A set of bowls from my girlfriend Kara (not to be confused with the bloggy friends also named Kara). Kara and I go back to 2001 when she and I were in the same training class at PRP. Kara and I have a lot in common and instantly bonded; turns out we also got married on the same day, just three years apart; and we’re both now divorced (guess that particular date was bad – LOL).
Our babysitter gave us (so far) the best gift… a free week of daycare! The week that Greg and I will be on the cruise we don’t have to pay for. Yay, more money for those massages we’re drooling over.
In the mail, I received these shoes:
they arrived last night and I wore them today. I don’t know if I likes them – I bought them a 1/2 smaller than I normally wear (since I couldn’t find any shoes in a half size) because I was thinking if I get them a half size bigger, then they would be falling off my feet. Well, the shoes are snug and were starting to rub in a painful way by the end of the day…. but, that’s why I am wearing them now – to break them in before we cruise and so I won’t have painful feets. Plus, they’re Crocs – and I have a quasi love-hate for those brand of shoes; the hate is that, in general, the shoes – the clogs with holes – are fugly in my book. I never understood the appeal. The love stems from the wide variety of their shoe selection, meaning they’re just not selling the one, fugly, product. I’ve yet to determine if the shoes are actually comfortable, but they do make your feet sweat.
I am still waiting for the swimsuit I ordered.
This Saturday is my wedding shower. I spoke with my Cousin April, who’s hosting the party, this past weekend and she’s pretty excited about it! I don’t know who she invited or how many are coming (except for the people who’ve told me directly), but I am looking forward to the party.
After the wedding shower, Greg and I are going to try and make it to my company’s holiday party; which is the Baltimore Dinner Cruise.
On Sunday, we plan on celebrating Amelia’s 2nd Birthday! Seriously, I can’t believe she’s two years old already – something my Mom and I were talking about today during my lunch hour.
It still hasn’t really sunk in that I have less than 2 weeks until the cruise and my wedding. I have a suspicion as to why though; my step dad became sick around Christmas and went into the hospital on New Years Day – he was diagnosed with pneumonia and was released today (hmmm… sounds familiar, something I went through in 2007); everyone at work came back sick, and one person had/has pink eye and now 4 others have caught pink eye; and Greg is sick – basically, I worried I am going to catch something and will be sick for the entire cruise!
Ugh, must go to bed. I’ve been putting in some overtime at work so we can have some extra $$$$ for the cruise… which we leave for NEXT SATURDAY – – – – – one day it’ll kick in
