Long Time No Blog

Well, long time no blog. I've been quite busy being busy as of late.
First off, I got engaged to the love of my life, also known as Joe.

We haven't set a date yet, but we are both very excited. We haven't set a date yet because we don't even live in the same city and haven't for about two years now. Now I must say long-distance dating can be done, but I am soooo over it. I can't wait until we are able to be in the same town, let alone the same house. What a novel idea. Actually be able to spend time with the people you love.

As far a preparing for the wedding, I haven't gotten that in to it, it could be because 1.) We don't know when we are getting married, 2.) We don't know where we are getting married, or 3.) It totally stresses me out!! Weddings are so expensive! The dress, the location, and holy cow the photographer and reception. But I have made it my goal to have the best, cost-effective wedding out there...whenever it is!

Also, we saw a really great movie the other day...Dreamer. The one about the horse and the little girl. It was a good uplifting movie about family and triumph over adversity without being too cheesy. this movie also stars Dakota Fanning, who Joe and I have decided is a little creepy. I think she's around 13 maybe, but she acts like she should be 40-something. Has anyone else noticed this?

But yes, still working hard, working harder to get closer to Joe and my family, and considering wedding plans. If any one has any suggestions on any of these things I would be more than happy to hear! Until next time...

As a friend who has now past would say, "Love God, embrace beauty, and live life to the fullest."

Window Shopping in Cyber Space

Well, I have found a new past-time. As most of you know I am currently living in a little college town while everyone else is, well, elsewhere.

So not being able to hang out and go shopping or wandering around with my friends, I have begun window shopping online. My friend Lydia and I can spend at least an hour or so looking at different things on a Web site sending links back and forth.
"Hey, this dress would look awesome on you!"
" Oh wow, that's a gorgeous ring."
"Yeah, but that necklace would go great with that top you have."
So, on and so forth. So in a world where we are disconnected we can still be connected and retain those much needed bonds of friendship.

So, thank you internet for helping to keep friendships, imagination and shopping debt ongoing!

The Dentist

Went to the dentist today and passed! It was great! I am so happy and relieved! But it got me to thinking, while I had four hands, a mirror, a deadly steel pick, a sucker and a water hose ALL IN MY MOUTH, how odd this dentist thing really is.

Now I am all for going to the dentist, but isn't it a little odd that go to someone's office we hardly, if at all know (in my case), and they just start doing weird things to us while we "ever so calmly" lay back in a plastic covered chair.

As a dentist, does one grow up dreaming about sticking strange metal devises in someone's mouth? Is this a healthy aspiration? -- besides from proper dental care, of course!

Thoughts, cares, concerns? Any other bizarre, yet widely accepted jobs out there?

Thoughts on . . . screen.

Though I see how writing out one's thoughts can be both entertaining and therapeutic. Don't you think it is quite odd that we as a generation have bypassed SECRET diaries and gone straight to publishing our thoughts, our private-in-our-head thoughts, on the WORLD WIDE WEB??

Well, how dare I let my friends pass me up on this latest trend. So I have decided to . . . blog! Now I can at least make snarky comments on other bloggers' pages! YES!

Well, my grand question for the day is: if you could live anywhere where would it be? Now this can be real, ancient, future, or imagined. So, GO . . . (I'm still waiting.)

I would have to say some great lakeside or ocean front piece of property where it is a nice 82 degrees out, a cool breeze coming off the water and my hammock swaying gently on my beautiful wood deck, with Joe inside making me a Margarita, of course!
