I Pulled It Off!!!

So last night was Candace's baby shower. I have never even been to a baby shower and I was so worried that this one wouldn't go well. But alas, it went great! I had two weeks (and one I had the flu) to get this thing together. My aunt helped me with food things like the cake and pink punch and my mom helped me out with party favors and my wonderful friends at work gave me some ideas for games to play. I'm not big on party games so we only played 2 but that was totally enough! Candace got so much stuff! Her baby is going to be well dressed. Not to mention that I was so happy to see her! I guess I have not been around pregnant people that often because it was so weird to hug her. She is the cutest pregnant girl ever. I swear she has a volleyball under her shirt, not a growing baby girl. I am hoping that the baby arrives a little bit early so that they will all be able to make it for my wedding. It would be unfortunate if they weren't there!
Speaking of wedding...... I am starting to get so excited! Not like I wasn't before, but now it's coming up so quickly that I can't help but being excited. I still have a few planning things that I need to get done (and invitations to get out aahhh!!!) but for the most part I have it done. With all this planning I wish we would have gone and got married on the beach in a far off exotic place! But I am excited to have family there that I haven't seen in a long time.
I'm at work and so ready to go home!!!

New Blog and I am Sicker Than A Dog

I'm not so sure that dogs really get sick like people so why the expression "sicker than a dog?"
I decided to create Brandon and I this blog so that we can keep up with our friends and family. He's not so sure about it yet but I have a goal to get him to write in this =) We'll see if it works out.
I have the flu. The ACTUAL flu. They stuck a q-tip thing up my nose, ran a test and lo and behold, Katie has the flu. I feel awful! And I feel even more awful because my wonderful mother that has been catering to my every need now has the flu and is miserable herself. Brandon hasn't been too bad in the "taking care of Katie" aspect which is good because normally he just makes me eat an insane amount and drink loads of water and tells me I'm not sick, it's in my head and I will be fine with a good night's sleep. Yeah, I really wish that it worked that way. But now my poor man is feeling the flu symptoms. Poor almost hubby! And though I'm still sick and haven't moved from my bed (except to throw up every hour or so) I still ask him if there is anything that I can do to help. His reply, "Nah I'll drink a lot of water and get some sleep. Right now I'm going to play video games." What possessed me to by him that XBOX 360? Or the Wii for that matter? I am so tired of being sick. This paycheck will not be good.
