Back in September I received an email questionaire from Latter-Day Brides, an exclusive store with temple-modest gowns that also publishes an annual magazine with tips and resources for the LDS community.
I had a few minutes (okay, it took about 45 minutes) and answered their list of questions and emailed them a few wedding pics.
Anyway, in October I received an email saying I was chosen to be in the magazine and asked my photographer's contact info.
I got this magazine in the mail last week!
and almost on the back page I found this handsome couple:
So, yes, it will probably be torn out of the magazine and scrapbooked in a shadowbox frame with our announcement, my bouquet and some other mementos.
This past weekend was the Sundance Film Festival. I've worked the festival for the last 3 years now and each year seems colder and colder.
This year was for Function Drinks. This stuff is actually really good. I'm hooked on their Urban Detox (even though it's main marketing is a hangover cure) and it's prickly pear goodness.
The only bad thing about the festival was that on Friday night I started getting sick. On Saturday I felt like CRAP and on Sunday I only felt minimally better.
I stayed home on Monday and Tuesday and felt really bad because I knew how many things I had to do that would rollover to today. And when I started the day, I had 215 to-dos. My normal day is 30-45. YIKES!
Try my hardest, but I only got down to 179 today, and tomorrow adds another 30. It's going to be a long long couple of weeks.
So, in other news, my birthday is a month from today! It's kind of depressing that I'll be 25...I feel really old and unaccomplished and nowhere close to where I'd like to be personally.
I brought a lot of debt into mine and Ryan's marriage and feel so responsible for getting out of it...easier said than done....I found this article on MSN today and I'm going to pose the challenge to Ryan for us to start living like poor college students. That means getting rid of our DVR service and our extra channels...goodbye SciFi Channel :(
With Ryan's car engine having to be completely replaced (setting us back another $3k) and the prospect of Ryan being in school for the next four years, it's definitely something to do...if it means waiting a few more years for kids (I really really hope not).
Other than that, nothing new. It's been a whirlwind weekend and I'm looking forward to a slower Friday/Saturday/Sunday this week.
