Been a While

With so many unread emails and blogs I have no time to blog myself.

Opening at the Academy was awesome and fun, but tiring.

Today I met the former president of Botswana-- interesting!

Zak and Angie are close to setting a date and choosing a venue.

Our beloved roommate and our favorite Lunesta MIGHT move out.

Lots of changes.

We saw Rob Schnieder yesterday

went to a Giants game.

man I don't know what else to say right now- I'm tired!!!!!

Big Engagement News!!!!

That's right my brother is engaged! (got you didn't I?)
My brother proposed to his super lovely lady Angie and they are planning to get married sometime next fall. I am very happy for them and a little jealous. . . . but definitely more happy than anything. Yay for more weddings and fun stuff. Sister of the Groom is not a role I have played yet (as an adult)- I was once a ring bearer for my oldest half brother when I was a kid.

No Update in Long Time

Guess I have been in a blogging rut. FIrst thing that comes to mind when I think of blogging is work- work has been crazy, stressful, exciting and all-consuming. With two weeks left until our grand opening, its been quite crazy around here. My regular job aside, the Cookie Lee business is off to a slow start. I seem to be getting mroe catalog orders than anything else. No one wants to host a party or come to my Cookie Lee show/party. WTF!!?? That is like the funnest part! You get discounts, you get food/drink, you get to see friends and meet people. Why is everyone so resistant to the idea? WEIRD!!! Also no one has wanted a peice from my collection yet. I am making money off catalog orders though, so its not a total loss. Hopefully I can drum up some more people to come to my show and go from there. Now as for Nelson Rides, the photo shoot was a success. THere are probably a few things we each would have done differently and I think a reshoot is not out of the realm of possibilities. I have this small OCD trait when it comes to my photos though. I had to get all the wedding photos from my cousin's wedding and the napa photos and the alligator photos from work all processed and up on my photo page before I tackled the jacket photos. Pretty much just because that is the order in which they were taken and displayed on my screen. I feel this inescapable need to only process them in the order in which they were taken. And I also MUST open ewach one in photoshop, color correct it, correct any shadow/highlight issues, crop it, copy it, make the copy smaller for the screen/upload, then upload it, then archive the two copies- all after i label each file of course. So this take some time. I probably do about ten photos a day- and when you have 500- takes awhile. So hang ight on photos for nelsonrides.
In my diet like I am maintaining my weight. I do not seem to be gaining or losing. My foot started hurting yesterday and I feel too busy and tired most of the time to put effort into excersize and diet, although I do crave the excersize. I am thinking new years resolution is coming up again.
In my love life I can say I feel real good about Wes and I working on some stuff and making the relationship stronger. I feel like I really do have the most wonderful, smart, talented, caring and handsome man I could ever ask for. What a dream he is. Such a kick-ass companion and generally all-around great person. Loveis great!
