Long overdue

Yes I am alive! I've been a busy little bee with no time to update this thing. Ok, that's not entirely true. Besides being a busy little bee, I've also been a busy little procrastinator who didn't want to sit still long enough to write anything. But alas, here is a quick update as to what has been going on in Rachelworld.

(Random memory: I was rather spacey and out of it as a child - hard to believe I know - and my mom used to say "Ohhh she's in Rachelworld again!")

Anywayyyy, we are moved into the new place and almost completely unpacked yayyy! I am loving it here- lots more room, big windows with so much light, huge backyard with a patio area to chill with the family-in-law. Awesomeness. We still have a little more to do to get settled in, but so far I am quite content up here in the suburbs.

Engagement party is in less than a week. I'm not sure how the dress is gonna look on me, but I'm not too stressed about it. I am soooo excited to see all my old friends. It should be a lot of fun.

A few days after that we leave for vacation with the family I work for. Sooo not prepared for that! I have to buy a bathing suit, and a ton of other stuff, but I guess it will get done.

What else, what else...

Oh! I finally agreed to ride on Ryan's motorcycle with him. We rode to Clifton Park for fireworks on the 4th of July. I was terrified but it actually was a lot of fun once I got used to it.

I think that's about it. I will try to be better about posting now that I have internet again and am more or less settled in here.

Hope everyone is enjoying these long warm summer days! It will be over before we know it!

Bittersweet symphony

Moving sucks.

But by this time tomorrow, we should be completely moved into our new home. I'm super excited, even though I'm a little sad to leave this place. I have moved 8 times in the past 6 years, and of all those places, this is the one I've lived in the longest. This is also Ryan's and my first home together, and even though it's super small and cramped, I will miss it.

Fatty McFatFat.

New goal: To lose at least 10 pounds by July 13th (AKA my engagement party.)

So I got my dress for the party and it's super cute but I look pregnant in it. I don't really want people to think that's the reason we're getting married lol. So the tummy has to go.

Encouragement please????

Fuuuun stuff!

It's been a while, mostly because I've been super busy, and when I haven't been super busy, I've been super lazy.

So let's see, what news do I have? Ryan and I (along with the kittens) went to Geneseo for Memorial Day weekend. My sister and her husband were there also. It was nice, pretty quiet, with lots of good food of course. And while we were there, Ryan and I decided to move our wedding up from October 2010 to June 2009. That's next year! And since we're moving it up and therefore won't be able to save up money beforehand, we have decided to have a very simple, small backyard ceremony at my parents' home in Geneseo. I've already picked out my wedding dress, and bridesmaid's dresses, and I found a company to cater and supply tents. It's getting exciting, people!

But before we get to the wedding, we have the engagement party in a little over a month, plus we're about to move, and then we are going on vacation to the Jersey Shore with the family I work for.

So all in all things are pretty good right now. My biggest stresses are money and moving. Ryan and I are struggling to make ends meet, and at the same time we are trying to go through all our junk to get ready to move. I HATE moving! Don't get me wrong, I am looking forward to our new place (an entire side of my future in-law's duplex - 2 floors, 2 bedrooms, huge backyard - woot!) but the actual moving process is like torture for me. I wish we could just skip that part and get to the part where we're all nice and settled in our new (BIG) apartment. My kitties aren't gonna know what to do with all that space!

Soooo that's about it. I'll try to keep updating more regularly, cuz things are getting pretty interesting right now and I want to share it with you!

Peace out. <3

Good babies gone bad.

It's a sad story, one we hear all too often. Sweet, adorable babies who for one reason or another, turn to a life of questionable morals and seedy activity. The ones who sneak whiskey in with their formula, who make a play for all the chicks in the sandbox, who stay up all night partying only to drag themselves to bed, er I mean crib, in the wee hours of the morning. And I regret to say that despite my shining influence, two of my beloved baby boys- Dumpling and MiniCooper- have gone over to the dark side. I only hope it's not too late for them.

Dumpling has turned to a life of rock n roll, which can only mean groupies, trashing hotel rooms, and trading his favorite toy, Duckie, for coke.

Poor little MiniCooper just can't stop hitting the bottle. We're considering an intervention. You can't solve your problems with booze MC!
