Random Thoughts…Again

June 13, 2007 at 2:39 pm | Posted in baby, birthdays, celebrations, family, music, random, travel | 7 Comments
  1. how has 2 1/2 weeks passed without one single post?  for shame, for shame.
  2. my youngest sister is getting married in THREE DAYS.  i’m so afraid i’ve been holding in a lot of emotion and that it’s all going to come blubbering out soon–hopefully AFTER the wedding day.  (is that possible, PLEASE?!)
  3. doug has been in India for ten days now, and he’s doing really well!  although i cannot imagine the heat (125 degrees, anyone?), he loves it there…so much so that he has been writing things like, “i just wish you were here, because i never want to leave” and “you and E would do just fine here.”  um…
  4. still haven’t decided on a birthday theme for little E’s first birthday.  it’s one month away!  i’m so excited about her turning one year old, but i still cannot believe how fast the time has passed.
  5. my sister, Kellie (and this should be #1), and my nephew, Daniel, are here from Australia!!  they have been with us in Arkansas for one week now, and the time with them has been so great.  i wish all of you could meet them–or at least just hear them talking.  :)
  6. going along with #2, rachel’s bachelorette party is tomorrow night, and there is much left to be done!  tonight i have to figure out what type of dessert we’re going to have in the hotel suite after dinner, make/buy it, figure out party favors and make/buy those, gather up cds and dvds…the list goes on and on.  this is no run-of-the-mill bach. party, either: we’re having dinner at some la-la restaurant called SO and then staying in a two-story atrium suite at The Peabody.  wow.  it should be a LOT of fun, though!!  i’m excited about everything, but, like everyone else involved in planning for the wedding, being able to breathe again will be nice, too.  :)
  7. i booked our plane tickets for london–we’re really going!  since our house lease ends in december, i don’t even know where we’ll be LIVING come January, but hey!–we’re going to london!
  8. i’m going to get a spray tan after work today.  a little nervous?  yep.  hope i don’t end up being the orange one in all the wedding photos.  :)
  9. don’t ever put your phone number in anything you fill out “on a whim” online.  just for kicks, i clicked on a yahoo link a few weeks ago re: online masters degrees.  why oh WHY did i put in my personal info. including my phone number??  but i did, and within MINUTES my phone was ringing.  i’ve gotten probably at least one call a day from admissions counselors at all these random schools.  i answered the phone once and talked with someone, but i was too embarrassed to have to keep saying i am not genuinely interested…so i recently changed my voice mail message, addressing the counselors at the end.  yes, i seriously did that.  immature?  yes.  a relief?  definitely.  no more calls since then.  :)
  10. Rachel asked me to sing at her rehearsal dinner, and i heard the song for the first time on sunday–beautiful!!  do you know “mended” by watermark?  here’s a snippet.  :)

  1. Wow, I see why you were too busy for bunco! I hope you enjoy all the activities surrounding your sister’s wedding. Give E a kiss for me. I missed y’all last night.

  2. #9 – I did the same thing “on a whim” like you said. I just wanted to check out the medical transcriptionist field and the calls did not end until my husband answered the phone and very firmly told them that I was not interested. The first guy I talked to seriously tried to swindle me into enrolling in their school!

    #7 – I’m so jealous! I have some pictures from my trip on the Picasa link on my blog, so go check them out if you like.

    #8 – Never done the spray tan thing before but I hear they’re pretty good. Here’s to hoping you won’t look like an Oompa Loompa like Charlise Theron did that one time at one of those awards ceremonies.

    #5 – I love Australian accents.

    #2 – Congrats to your sister! And good luck to you on everything.

  3. I have always wanted to meet your Aussie relatives and hear them talk. I really wish we could come for Rachel’s wedding. I know she will be beautiful, as well as you and Sarah. Good luck with the spray tan and the bachelorette party.

    Love,
    Suz

  4. So what did you decide on dessert and favors?

    I think it’s always such a good feeling to book airfare – It makes it all the more real!

  5. i love this quick 2 minute idea of catching up with you! I missed you at bunco but I LOVED spending time with your preciousness at the wedding. once again, i love me some spencer sisters.

  6. hey! it’s levi!

    this is my new blog…
    hope things are going well!

  7. where is the wedding update.
    no pressure :)
