He passed!

For those of you sitting on the edge of your seats in anticipation, Barley passed level 1 obedience class yesterday!  You can send your congrats to him at Barley.Dogg (at) gmail.com.  No, I’m not kidding.  The dog has email.  And an iphone.  Or so Jason tells me.

A brief update on the weekend:

– Premarital counseling ended up being more of a discussion about what we want in the wedding.  Basically, we can do just about anything we want.  So we’ll be picking out verses and songs and whatnot in the upcoming weeks.  Suggestions?  Let us know.  Also, we’ll fill out a PREPARE inventory, which is a questionnaire that will give the pastor some things to talk with us about next time.  We’re supposed to fill in these scantron forms and send them in in the upcoming weeks.  We already peaked at the book… but we’re not cheating.  I promise.

– Cake = yummy.  My mouth is watering just thinking about how delicious our wedding dessert is going to be.  Folks, you are in for a real treat! Mmmm…

– The florist appt went well, but we’ve got more deciding and meeting to do before plans are finalized.

– My Grandma’s  75th birthday was Saturday night, so my mom and aunts and uncles threw together a surprise party!  How fun!  My family is pretty darn cool, even if one of the more entertaining members of the family skipped Grandma’s birthday to go clay pigeon shooting.  Only in Wisconsin. (hee, hee, just teasing, Uncle Brian).

– My Grandma, Mom, and I went shopping for fabric for the flower girl’s dress.  Turns out the color of my dress is INCREDIBLY difficult to match (why are there so many shades of white?).  We haven’t found anything yet.  But!  My mom has some leads on other fabrics that might match, so cross your fingers.

Jason and I will be taking a trip down memory lane this week as we begin to scan pictures for a wedding photo montage.  So stay tuned and you might get a glimpse of how cute I was in the 80s.  Perm!  Huge bangs!  Rolled socks!  Yes!
