Shameless Plug

One of the best photoshoots my brother has done by far. I just love the pics to death! I'm so proud of my brother!

This is my friend's baby (the first baby of the group).

Club 33

Approx. 20 more days left til wedding! 4 more days of work!! A lot to update about .. but we'll leave it at my birthday celebration with my MOH at Club 33 at Disneyland.

Can you say dream come true? Ron and I are big Disneyland fans ever since we started dating. Our official first date WAS at Disneyland. We always told ourselves that one day we'll get to eat at Club 33. And thanks to my MOH and her connections, we did! On our birthday week too!!

So here are the pics...

The Birthday Girls (My MOH and I..her birthday is the day after mine.)
A dream come true!Ding Dong!

Who would have thought?

I'm a little sad...

The priest who we have been meeting with for our wedding is being transferred up North. I felt like crying. Even though he's little intimidating and very strict, Ron and I became very comfortable with him.

Now I feel like we're starting over again with another priest. I don't know what to expect, but the priest did tell the other priest that we were "straight" or was it "strict"? He said the same thing to Ron about us and we weren't sure what he really said and what he meant. I guess though it really meant something good. =)

The weird thing is that on Sunday, the pastor at Ron's parent's church went on leave and his mom said something about how that would be crazy if that happened to our priest. And ta-da!

Busy Bee!

I am trying so hard not to get stressed out. I am really tired though. I made our ceremony programs and it is absolutely cute, easy, and simple! It's not final yet cause we're still adding stuff to it, but a separate post later on.

This week is going to be a stressful one...but like I said, I'm trying not to get stressed out. Report cards are due on Wednesday and I have to grade two big tests before then so I could input it in for their last report card. On Thursday is Open House. Is my room prepared? I'm hoping by tomorrow afternoon it will be. Our theme is "Over the Rainbow" so I bought rainbow die-cuts from the teacher store and I took each of my students photo (both the kinder and 6th graders) and cut them out so it looks like they're going over the rainbow, flying over the rainbow, coming out of the cloud, etc. It's ABSOLUTELY cute! Sadly, for privacy purposes, I can not share them...but then again, if I do one of myself, then maybe I can just so you get the idea. ;P

On Tuesday are my parents 30th Wedding Anniversary. We spend it every year with my parents. I know it's THEIR day, but we have always celebrated it together.

I really just can't wait for the week to be over..and sheesh..it hasn't even started.

On a side note, I've been trying to call the seamstress who is in charge of my wedding dress from the boutique I bought my dress at and well I haven't gotten a hold of her! I'm crossing my fingers that I get to do my final fitting sometime within the next two weeks! Eeeek!

*breathe in...breathe out*

Okay, before I leave .. engagement photos part 2? It was so random. ;D

Me: "Hey..how you doin?" LOL. I didn't know where to put my hand!
Weee! He beat me to the swing first.

I thought my brother was taking a close-up shot so I stood on my tippy-toes.

Bridal Shower #1

My first of two bridal showers was held at my Aunts house, hosted by my Aunt, my MOH, and mother.

My aunt's house is less than a minute away from mine. So it was very convienent.

Here are SOME photos taken by my brother. Please check out his new blog! Swanky Photography!

Being silly!

That's my parents' house right in the middle in the background. That's how close we live!

The Favors
The Food

The Pig
The Centerpiece (LOVE IT!)
The Set-Up Crew

My mom, my MOH, my future MIL, and my MOH (Ron's sister).

Words of Wisdom

Instead of clothes pins, they used necklace rings. If someone said APRIL, RON, RING, or WEDDING, they got all their rings taken away.Making me a photo album message scrap book!
Here comes the bride!The Guests
My bridesmaid (best friend from junior high)
My cousin (bm), MOH, me, baby cousin (bm), MOH.
Wardrobe change! Whoever was able to guess the right amount of clothing, etc, I was wearing before hand one. I also had fake tattoos..hehe! And I was not surprised who won..my 11 year old niece! She got 14 out of 16 questions right! She knows me too well! Oh and she does live next door to me. Haha!

Toilet paper time! My flower girl. =D

I hated this game! It was "How well do you know the groom?" If I got an answer wrong I had to eat a Double Bubble bubble gum! My MOHs specifically searched for this gum! Silly girls! Out of 22 questions, I only got 4 right! I later on watched the DVD where Ron answered the questions and I got most of them right, if not totally wrong! One of the question was, "How many times does Ron fart in a day?" and I said 7 and he said, "on average 6". Wasn't that close enough? Another one was , "How many keys does he have?" and I said, 11, and there was 12! By the 18th question I was drooling! It was hilarious!
The Gifts

We got ALOT of gifts! It was nice to get some cash and gift cards too! I felt so bad for my brother who was taking photos during this time because of all the lingerie. It was so funny! Poor guy!

So..Bridal Shower #2 is on Saturday for Ron's side of the family! Yay!
