One of These Things is Not Like the Other...

One of these things just doesn't belong... (which is it?)

1. I was slicing french bread last night and sliced in the middle finger of my left hand... it didn't hurt, but felt like I sliced into a grape.
2. I am feeling very inspired by John Mccain right now.
3. I just finished reading the leaked 12 chapters of 'Midnight Sun' (Twilight as written from Edward's perspective) and am now tempted to re-read Twilight AGAIN.
4. The clockradio in our bedroom has been flashing the time for the past week because I'm too lazy to fix it.
5. We have three clockradios in our room. One for me, one for Aaron and an extra just for music to play at night while we sleep. (Helps me focus on other things than his snoring.)
6. I haven't been to the gym in over a week.
7. I ran into an old high school pal tonight at the family fun center (Hi Angela!)
8. I threw away half a chocolate cake last night.
9. Both kids are coming down with colds. *sigh*
10. I am kind of irked that they took Teletubbies off of In-Demand.

how about some Bachelorette party pictures?

ok then,

This is Amanda. I mean 'Reese' (we all had fake names that night) She is a hoot and a half, and has been one of my sister's best friends since high school (and maybe middle school? not sure)

IMG_4374
This is Jenseen... or actually, that night she was 'Lola'. She's a sweetheart. She and Lori met at Legal Assistant college ;)

IMG_4375
Jessica (Alex) and Karen (Candie... heh) Jessica and I have known each other since 3rd grade, and Karen is one of our mom's best friends. She'll probably cut me for putting this picture up, so please don't tell her it's here.

IMG_4377
This would be Erin. She and her boyfriend Tim have a standing date with Lori and Seth to watch Lost. Tim went to high school with Lori and Seth.

Me... aka 'cherrie', I was feeling like her supreme fatness that night, but glad to see that I chose well when I got dressed.

slideshow

Here is the slideshow I made for Lori and Seth's wedding... my advice is to start playing it, and pause it, let it load for a while and then play again, it won't skip and buffer that way. It's also 7 minutes long :)

Nerves

I'm typing this entry from my sister's couch. It is 'Pre-bachelorette' Party time right now, and my stomach hurts from the anticipation of tonight. I don't know why... True, I haven't been out dancing in years, but it should be fun. I'm just antsy or something.

Oh and it's about a billion degrees outside... I am enjoying however, Lori and Seth's ghetto fabulous a/c unit. I am almost getting a chill as I sit here :) It's ghetto fabulous, because ... well, I'll have to take a picture of it to show you. It's ingenious though.

Not much going on but wedding stuff... I have spent HOURS over the past few days going through old cds of pictures, trying to find some for the slideshow. Today I took the boys to Costco while Aaron cleaned up our pig sty of a house. Maybe it's not a true pigsty, but the clutter and the toys plus random junk had made it out of control. By the time we got back the house was clean and the floors were vacuumed... he's a good egg :)

Here are some pics from Lori's shower a few weeks ago...

mmmm... cake.
