Guess what I got me today....!

I'm so excited because I finally ordered myself a Nook! Mitch's mom gave me a $50 Barnes & Noble gift card for part of my Christmas present. When she was here last week she gave Mitch & I each another $50 gift card so I decided to go ahead and order it and I can not wait for it to be here.

So tell me.... what should I read first?

It's 1:36am && were wedding planning...

Seriously-- M & I arent members of a church. Awful, I know. We don't have a strong connection to any site we talk about until tonight. See we attended my cousins wedding tonight. In Brownsville. Small: family and friends, less than 100 people. Baptist church=no dancing or liquor. M liked it.

My wedding plan earlier today--eloping. Vegas. The Stratosphere's Chapel in the Clouds. 844 feet above the Vegas strip on 11-11-11 at 11:11. Family and friends can watch live stream online.

Then M saw how "easy" my cousins wedding was. Crap. After hours of debate we've set a plan...

-It's a Saturday and my nephews birthday.
-First United Methodist Church in Brownsville. Why? It's beautiful. It's my grandmothers church. She knows people who can cater, take pictures, do flowers, etc so it will be on the cheap side. M has been to several weddings there and several events for my family as well.

9-10-11 @ 12:13.... kinda cool. Lets talk to my grandmother and the church people first.

So if I can get the church that day, were all set. So next I was worried about my diet. *IF* I lose 2 pounds a week, I'll be at goal for my wedding. No pressure there right?

Crap. Kinda nervous. Kinda excited. Let's do this!!

Where have I been?

I haven't blogged since September. Wowza. What have you missed?

I got engaged!! True story, no lie. :)) December 14th, I stayed home from work in a funk, blue kind of depressed mood. I spent the day with my TiVo, ignoring my ever growing to do list. Mitch came home from work and was in and out of the house and I was ignoring him for the most part and we were getting ready to go to Target because I needed boxes to wrap presents in AND.... he brings me a big ol box of cupcakes from Muddy's. I was like awww how sweet... still clueless, I opened the box and screamed. Awww... we're precious. Then....

14 hours later, my mother fell in our driveway and broke her femur... on the day of my finals... the day after my engagement. Wha...? She was taken by ambulance to a local hospital and I met her there. She was in a lot of pain and screamed like I've never heard her scream as they tried to position her to take her first Xrays. I'm scarred. I left her to go take my finals... (both of which I failed, but still had an A & B for the semester because Im a smarty pants) and when I returned, they were transferring her to the big trauma hospital. She had a procedure day one to put her in traction. Then surgery the next day to put in a plate and screws. A few days later, she was transferred to a rehab hospital for some inpatient physical and occupational therapy. When is she coming home? No one knows. *insert sad face here*

So my engagement has gone as follows... "Congrats! Your ring is beautiful! How's your mom?" Totally stealing my thunder there Mom! Geez! (I kid, I kid.)

So no we haven't picked a date.... or a venue... or colors... or decided on a big or small wedding and that's all anyone asks. I'm excited but more focused on the finish line. I love M and want to spend the rest of my life with him. Planning a wedding is for the birds... Everyone I know almost tells me to go small... I really leaning towards small. I'm more worried about paying tutition and getting back on my diet and to the gym. I think M should plan the wedding.... you agree, yes? Stay tuned... I swear I'll do a better job updating y'all! Hope everyone had a fabulous holiday season... Aren't we glad that's over?

Jedi Mind Tricks

**We will return to our regularly scheduled 30 Day Blog Challenge eventually**

So I dabble in blogging. I try, I don't have the time to write.... I read a lot of blogs. Well look at the pictures on my phone and mark them read in Google reader bc I hate having unread blogs bc of the OCD.... Anyway as I was scrolling to the bottom of this blog something caught my eye. So I read the whole thing.

It's me. Down to the garbage bags and the fact that he's 10 years older. She just crawled in my head with her Jedi Mind Tricks and put it on her blog. Read it. Get back to me.

(The above is an email to Mrs. D at In Pursuit written while driving the second I finished reading THE blog. It fit)

So here it is: Unpacking My Head WOW.

30 Day Blog Challenge: Day Four, Favorite Book

Alright so my favorite book would have to be Twilight. Yes, I'm a TwiNerd. I know, I'm like 12. I say its my favorite because I could not put it down. I hate when Mitch goes to be without me but I stayed up and read until 4am one night because I couldn't put it down. Work sucked the next day. :))

I'm also liking Nicholas Sparks, Janet Evanovich, Candice Bushnell, and Jane Green.

30 Day Blog Challenge: Day Three, Your Favorite TV Show.

Hi, my name is Leigh and I'm a TiVo addict. Really? You want me to pick just one favorite show? NO WAY!

So I'm a Big Brother fan. I'm totally loving Brittney this season. Probably because she's the only girl left.

I can not wait for Grey's Anatomy to come back on. Seriously? Is Derek going to be ok? Did Meredith really lose the baby?

AND don't get me started about Gossip Girl. Chuck and Blair belong together and someone mugged him for her engagement ring.... no dice.

And last week's TrueBlood.... Are they really going to kill Eric??? Oh Em Gee.

I have a slight TV problem.... I'm just sayin'.

30BC: Day 2, Your favorite movie

Almost didn't remember to blog.... Day two and I'm already forgetting. Wowza. It's 11:05pm so let's make it quick.

Like yesterday's post, I have several favorite movies, which I'll expand on at a later date. Forgive the lazy day two post but I've changed my major and school in the past two weeks. I registered and bought books today AND classes started last Saturday and I'm already behind.... That being said, here it is.

GONE WITH THE WIND. OMG to grow up like that and be a *TRUE* Southern Belle.... Why, fiddle-dee-dee! && Rhett Butler, what a hottie?!?!? I have the Hallmark collector's Christmas Ornament series which comes out with a new Scarlett each year. I have the limited edition VHS (obvi before DVD came out) && I have GWTW on DVD as well as it's miniseries, Scarlett, on DVD.

::sigh:: We all know what I'm doing this weekend! Oh right, STUDYING!!!! (Darn that ADD!)

Be easy!
