So, I'm having a problem picking a song for my bouquet toss. Any creative suggestions? I'm looking for something upbeat and fun... and not so old and whatever. 
P.S.... I'm not a huge fan of the 80's so please, no Cindy Lauper.

Things That Make Me Smile...

Song: Beautiful Day
Artist: U2

Finally! I have some time to blog! (Courtesy of Tropical Storm Fay) I thought that I would write about some things that make me smile, since the weather is so crappy looking. To start this special blog out, I would like to go over this "tropical storm". Supposedly, this storm is going to go right through Florida, make a sharp left turn for Georgia and Louisiana, and go back into the Gulf of Mexico (where it can then intensify and hit us again!) due to some trough coming from the right of Florida. This makes me smile. There's nothing like having people freak out about a tiny storm... watching it go... then watching it come back around and start everything all over again. Hopefully, however, it wont do what it's expected (as they usually don't).  On top of this, I went to get some gas this morning (since I've been on empty for I don't know how long) and the gas pumps in my neighborhood were all saran wrapped shut and closed for business. This limits me to doing NOTHING. Glory.

Now, back to things that REALLY make me smile. I'f you haven't realized by now... everything pink, black, and white makes me smile. I'm not really into pink clothes... but I love love pink accessories. Black and white, however, are my favorite colors for clothes. Yeah, I'm a little boring, but whatever. Deal with it. I think the pink makes up for it. (BTW, you can make a little collage like this at this website).  It's pretty great. I don't really have an artist's eye (more like an artist's ear), but this website was quite entertaining! Especially if you're as bored as I am right now. =)  

Well, this topic I'm sure we all have in common. The third thing that makes me smile... Awesome food!!!! Every thing fried, sweet, or just plain delicious... you know what I'm talking about.  Amanda and I take out a day or two every week and eat something as delicious as the things on the left. I mean, despite the urge to diet and get thin (fun.)... I need a break every once in a while to eat something so delicious, so fantastic, that it could give you a heart attack (i.e. covered in butter, salt, or sugar). Something that is not pictured... BISTEC EMPANIZADO CON PAPITAS... ohhh my gosh... don't even get me started on that... YUM!!!! I'm totally dreaming of these foods even if they're totally out of reach. Amanda, if you're reading this, it's time to go back to Samurai! Tell your mom ;)
Thanks to Kristel, I have a new thing to smile at. Creating my own manga avatar! FUN! Here is what I came up with. Not half bad!

The last (but not least) thing that makes me smile HAS to be people. As lame as it sounds, I can not get enough of them. My family, my fiance, my friends... LOVE THEM! Anything from a simple phone call to a lame joke... love it! And that concludes the things that make me smile.

(The Long Awaited) PART 2!

Song: Lovers In Japan/Reign of Love
Artist: Coldplay

SO! It has been a great couple of weeks, again! I am OFFICIALLY on my short summer break! ...and have been totally soaking it up! But before I get into that, let me back-track a little bit. I left off telling you about my nursing experience with Thomas. Well, he is doing SOOOO much better now! He has officially moved out of my house (after living here for about a month) and he is perfectly able to go up the stairs now! Yay, Thomas! Also, on my last Anatomy lab class, the professor interrupted my session with Fred and called me into the office. Turns out, I didn't have to take the final since I got high A's on my exam! WOO! I will miss him (Fred), though. I managed to take the rest of my exams without having a nervous break down. Some grades have not been posted, but for the ones that were, so far so good!

Now, for my amazing break! I finally have the time to work on my wedding plans! I'm in the process of choosing my flowers, food, and other little details. My bouquet will be my signature of course! I do have a question for you (my readers), though. I'm taking a little poll (which you can participate in on the right of the screen, whether you have blogger or not!) and am asking for honest opinions! I happen to love shoes, and I love pink. These two things are all over the place when you see me. I have a friend who wore converse on her wedding day... very cool! Very Her! I, however, don't know if I have the guts to be as brave as her and do something extraordinary. So, I need a little pushing (if you agree).
Take the poll! This (to your right) is basically what I'd be wearing (to give you a visual)... Anyway, other than the glorious wedding plans, things have been relatively stable. I spent a couple days with Amanda... which was super fun! Her and I went on a couple of shopping expeditions and found a lot of great deals! I also had the opportunity to spend time with the some family, whom I've missed terribly. I need more time with them. Other than that, things are good! I just got a new pair of glasses, which Thomas and Amanda picked. I'll post a picture up soon. That's all for now!
