And the fall crept in the room. Yet, no one noticed...

Uh, I've been having bouts of insomnia this month. Possibly the change in the air?
Can't sleep, so it's to the blog I turn to.

This sink will be mine. Don't mind the $2000 price tag.

This clock will be mine.

This purse will be mine. I have no idea where you get it, or how much it is, but it will be mine.

Who are all these genius people who are so amazingly good at making things I love?!?!

Heaven's, another one?!? I'll just have to take one of these to match my first one.

See, this next one I actually know where to buy. Costco, or 7/11. Yeah, if you need a gift Idea for me for Christmas, just buy me a full pallet of these. Yeah, a pallet should last me about a month.

Cheese Croissant. DROOOOOL

Got to figure out how to make my hair look like this, but when doing it to my own hair. I wish I had eyes in the back of my head, then I could stop making everyone else's hair look awesome and be selfish.

Yeah, I think I have a case of the "Gimmies" you know, Gimmie this, gimmie that.

Enough with the random thoughts. Going to bed.

I can't figure out what is up with my body lately.

Last October-November I got Mono.  NOT fun.  But hey, a painless way to lose lose 20 lbs.

Earlier this year it was Shingles.  SHINGLES people, the OLD person virus that even baffled my doctor.

Now I'm having pains around my kidneys, and with everything I've been researching it sounds like kidney stones.  What the heck?  Now I'm downing as much water as I can, taking pain pills and going to stop at Smith's on the way home and get a ton of cranberry juice.  Apparently my body needs to be more "alkaline" whatever that means.

On a happier note, I'm participating in a migraine study for the next six months and taking a new drug.  I'm praying I didn't get a placebo.  Plus I get $50 every time I go in for an appointment.  Woohoo, money!

Ooh, and another happier note, my sister Michelle is pregnant (has been for a while) and I'll have another nephew "Eli" by Thanksgiving.  I love me some babies!

Hmm, not much else going on with life right now.  Still working part time for the Foot Doctor, the YSA rep. calling in church keeping me busy, garden blooming like mad(well, dying now, it's getting colder these days), Just had my 1 year anniversary with Steven (Love you!), and all is well with the world.  I guess.  I can't complain.  Anyway, off to fix the back pain.

Tootles, Bec

Cami & John 9.4.2010

Yesterday my childhood best friend Cami was married. I still remember the day the Leafty's moved in up the street and I went straight up after dinner to play with the "girl", as I called her. We'd spend the next 13 years as eachother's other half. We'd constantly et asked if we were sisters and twins. We were the same height, had the same dark, thick hair and were inseparable.

Being a bridesmaid and helping out with the wedding was so rewarding to be involved watching Cami take this giant step in her life. She looks so happy. Even though she'll now live in Clinton with her new husband and have a life not as much connected with mine, she'll always be my best friend from "up the street".

Rachel and I made the Groom's cake. John loves playing pool so Cami asked us to do something to do with that. After 2 days, our cake came out great and we were so proud to have it be included in an actual wedding! We got lots of compliments.

Steven was my lifesaver for this wedding. He chauffeured me around, did lots of waiting while I was helping with other things and getting beautified, came to the rehearsal and dinner, and was with me the entire day of the wedding. I don't think he complained once!

It was a long week, and I think this picture shows it well :)

If anyone really knows me, they I know I "highly dislike" having to be one of the single girls vying to catch the bouquet. Steven made me go stand in the group though. As in, he forcibly pushed me over to it. Yes I caught the bouquet (for the first time ever), and no I wasn't trying. Cami chucked it right at me after saying she was going for me. We'll see if anything becomes of it.

Congratulations to my old friend, I hope you have a wonderful happy marriage!
