Trying 7 Quick Takes

--- 1 ---

So this blog I read has been doing 7 quick takes posts almost every Friday and I have really enjoyed the format of it.  I thought I’d give it a try myself since I’ve been a very bad blogger lately.  But I’m full of excuses!  I have a wedding coming up!  I’ve been finishing school!  The NBA finals are on!

Can you believe that I’ve become a basketball fan?  I was NEVER into sports until I met Matt and moved to San Antonio.  You cannot live here and not be a Spurs fan.  It’s infectious.  But I am and they are doing great in the finals.  They killed Miami in the last two games on Miami’s turf.  I think they might close it out on Sunday, but I think it will be a much tougher game – the Heat will be giving it everything they’ve got.  I think the Spurs are just a better team this year.

Today was my last day of work for the school year.  Yay for summer break!  I actually finished early and am already home sitting on my couch.  Most of my friends up in the panhandle have been out for two weeks now.  I am looking forward to sleeping in, napping, watching tv, reading, and finalizing the wedding plans.

My wedding is less than a month away now.  It’s coming much faster than I’m ready for.  Now that school’s out, I still have several things to get done.  I still need a flute and horn player for the service.  I need to order wedding flowers.  I need to finalize the rehearsal dinner list.  I need to figure out wedding attendant gifts.  I need to figure out all the reception stuff – decorations, food, etc.  I think I’ll get started on all of that tomorrow.

The new dog Angie has been a very bad dog.  I think I’m going to have to totally baby proof the house.  Lately she has taken to tearing up books.  The first one was left out by me – my fault.  The second and third ones, however, she actually took off the shelf and chewed up.  Her chew toys last no more than five minutes before they are de-squeaked and unstuffed.  I have found something that she is afraid of though – bubble wrap.  If I pop the bubbles, she runs and hides.  This is the dog that tries to attack the vacuum cleaner and likes the hair dryer.

I have lots of bubble wrap because Matt and I have been getting wedding presents!  We hadn’t really planned on doing a registry, but since so many people were asking us if we had one, I created one on Amazon and another on Bed, Bath, and Beyond.  We now have three sets of matching dishes!  We also have a new kitchen clock and a wedding photo frame.  We also have gift cards to Home Depot and Lowe’s that will probably get used this summer.

Matt is taking me out to dinner tonight to celebrate my last day of work.  Not sure where we will go yet.  The thing about San Antonio is that there are LOTS of restaurants to choose from.  That’s why I’ve gained about 20 pounds since moving here.  I’m going to try to behave by only eating half of my dinner and saving the rest for lunch tomorrow. 

So what do you think about the quick takes format?  At least I can try to make sure I post something every Friday – maybe that will bring some life back to my blog.

I like this format --- I have been a very, very bad blogger, too. I think I may give this way a try. :)

My son is getting married in July. I am not even involved in the majority of the wedding plans and I am feeling the heat of getting things done in time. I surely understand what you are saying! I'll bet your wedding will be wonderful, I can't wait to see the pics.

Have a very happy summer, old blogger friend. Hugs. :D Jamie

Thanks Jamie. I was wondering if anyone was still actually reading. Now that summer is here, I'll try to be a better blogger.
