An exciting weekend for a change..

Friday night after work we saw District 9. I had mixed feelings at first when Ian said he wanted to see this at the theater. But then he went on Rotten Tomatoes and saw the rating it got. It was really high, so we saw it. I loved it.. i must say maybe one of the best movies i saw all summer. I never thought i would get teary eyed in a Sci Fi flick. But i almost did, i really cared about the Prawns. Especially the little kid one...

Saturday had to get up and work as usual. But Saturday night we went out with some people from my work. We went to Fast Eddie's first which was ok. The drinks were good, and really cheap, but all the food except for the french frys were to spicy for me. Plus it was really crowded, we had to fight for the tables we had, and then you have to defend your chairs the whole time. We stayed there for a while, and then headed to the Holiday Inn for Karaoke. It was the most fun i have had in a while. A couple people from our group sang, and were really good. I sang a few times but wasn't really taking it seriously i was just goofing around.

And then something really scary happened yesterday. Ian was driving to Dierbergs, and i asked him if he wanted to go to Petco too. Well he took the turn a little fast, and came close to a guy on a motorcycle who failed to yield at the sign. We kept driving and parked at Petco, and then the guy parks next to us, gets off his bike and tries to open Ian's door. Luckily it was locked then the guy started banging on the window telling ian to roll down the f####@# window, and ian said no, the banged a little mirror yelling at him to slow down in bleeping parking lot. Finally he left, and went somewhere else, we were afraid the guy might come back, and do something to my car while we were inside.

This weekend is gonna be great.. i can't wait. We are driving down to Kansas City after i get off work for the weekend. The plan is to see "Inglorious Bastards" with one of our good friends. It's really the whole reason we are going down there is to see it with him. All 3 of us having been waiting for this movie all summer, so it better not disappoint. I think we are also going to go to Crown Plaza, and maybe the zoo. We will see what happens, we won't get in until really late friday night. Hopefully they have a really late showing. We are staying at a hotel on friday, and staying in the guest apartment at my dads work on sat. So i just have to clean the house, and make it through one week of work.. Who knows maybe i will get my new tattoo this weekend too. I have been kind of wanting it before i do the Trash the Dress picture shoot. The problem is that i have decided what i want and were to put it, but i can't decide on a color. I am going to get a heart shaped peace sign on the inside of my left wrist, but im not sure if i want it to be bright and colorful like purple or just black. Ian says i should get in rainbow, but that might send the wrong message.. What do you think????

Trash/ Celebrate the Dress

I have finally found a photographer i love for our Trash the dress/ celebrate the dress session. I met and talked with her today. I took all 3 wedding albums down, and we discussed ideas and locations. We decided that my fancy st louis wedding dress is the one i am going to "trash". But i am not really going to trash it much. We are just going to do alot of stuff with water, and thats the one i decided to get wet. My other dress we are going to be a little more careful with. We decided to do alot of pictures here in New Town, and we are also going to do some at the graffiti wall downtown at the riverfront. Ian is going to be in some of them too, they are going to be pretty causal. He's just going to wear dark jeans, a white button down shirt,and maybe a tie. I'm just going to have my hair down, and do my own makeup, and might wear the veil in some. We are even going to have the dogs in some.. I am so excited!!! Right now we have a tentative date of Sunday Sept 30, but we might do it sooner... PICS TO COME SOON!!!

Well, we have a new addition to our furry family. We are now the proud parents of a Dwarf Nether land Rabbit named Milton Hershey. We got him last weekend, and he is very friendly and starting to do much better with his litter box training.

The Netherland dwarf is the smallest of all the rabbit breeds, he will only be about 2-3 pounds tops... We got him from a really nice guy in Farmington, I originally wanted a Hedgehog but they are really hard to find. So maybe in a few years.
My job is going really well, i had my 3 month review the other day, and now i am officially an employee. Yay!!
I have really been considering going back to school lately. On Thursday I went to Sanford Brown, to learn more about their Vet Tech program. I think that is something i could be pretty good at, considering i own a small zoo at my house. Unfortunately it's not going to work. They require class on mon wed and friday from 8 am to 4 30 pm. There is no possible way i could work full time and have that kind of school schedule. Which really sucks, and the worst part was the lady interviewing me was really pushy. She accused me of not being ready to commit to my future, which i thought was a harsh statement. I am totally ready to commit to my future, I did it once already just a year when i married Ian. The problem now, is with the house mortgage and, everything we just can't afford me not working. So Ian had made another suggestion of maybe going to business, and finishing up my associates degree. I really need to call Meramec and get a copy of my transcript, to see how many of my credits would transfer. I guess i just really want to finish school so i have something i can be proud of myself for.. Don't get me wrong, i have a great job that i love, and i am very lucky to have fell into a career with no education like i did. But i have really gone as far as i can. I have been in the Optometry field for almost 10 years, and am i getting a little bored. I have always had the dream of opening a small used book store, and now that we are in New Town i might be able to. At least Business school could give me an idea on how to run it. It's so funny, i already have it all planned out. I want to open a pet friendly book store, that sells used books, magazines etc, but also dog treats and toys. I will call it "Happy Tales" get it, it's kind of cheesesy i know. But so am i.. Well gotta go, i have a hot fudge cake in the oven calling my name
