This will probably turn into a wedding planning/fitness blog because that's now my life!

I'm 28.

I'm engaged.

I'm attempting to plan a wedding for late 2012 and freaking out already!

As excited as I was to apartment hunt, I'm so tired of it. The biggest problem is that were looking a bit too early but when you have 3 animals you have to since apartments that will accept them all are so limited.

Were looking at another place in Shorewood tomorrow, and I'm hopeful about it. Heat is included and it's a 1 bedroom + den which is exactly what were looking to downsize to.

I am completely overwhelmed at work and have two choices. Tell my boss my plate is full, or try to sneak unpaid hours in when everyone leaves. Neither are too desireable, so I guess I'll be talking to her Monday. I hope it's not admitting defeat but my days are a blur of paperwork and phone calls with little room for projects.

I'm currently workin at apple a day right now, and taking on some extra hours here to help pay for a security deposit and movers in March. That's the big motivation right now. Depending where we find a place I might quit, or stick it out until pete is done with school in November. Then well each work one job and have entire weekends together which sounds so amazing.

I am really looking forward to baseball season. I can't wait to get our tickets in the mail and pick out 4 pack!

Ok this was pretty random and it's hard enough to type clearly. Peas.

This seems really stupid. It would take me a year to update this way. Maybe next time working job #2.

I really really miss St. Louis.

More on that later, home run derby time.

On Sunday Pete and I went to Romine's on 27th to play in their weekly tournament. All you have to do to play is buy a $5 gift card which you can then use on their yummy food or drinks. We got there too early so we played pool for an hour before it started. There is a draw so you don't get to sit where you want, and I think there were at least 6 or 7 tables with about 9 people in each table, so at least 50 people were there.

I played pretty conservatively, and took out the nicest guy with a full house. The tournament was very organized, with the tourney director moving people so each table always had an even number of people. Pete got knocked out when I was on my second table, and before I knew it half of the people were done. I won some really big hands, and was just trying to do my best. About 4 hours into play, I made it to the final table. Everyone won a free hour of pool and an extra $600 in chips, and blinds went down for the rest. I hung on until there were 4 of us left. There were 2 guys that were big chip leaders, and me and another that had a decent amount. Around 5:30 I'd pretty much had enough of playing poker, because over 5 hours of serious concentration was just too much. Finally I went all in on a hand and lost, which I was fine with. Since I made 4th place I won a prize (2 bottles of vodka with glasses and a hat) AND I made it to the finals they are having next week. I'm hoping some of my friends will come there next weekend so they can shoot pool and hang while I play. The whole thing is on a point system so I'm not sure how many chips I'll have but I know I got some for making the final table and then for 4th place.

Anyway, it was pretty cool and everyone was super nice. I think the best part was the guy who won asking me, "so Val how long have you been playing poker?" and me replying, "Oh about six months."

The end.

This dude:


Was at Lulu's last night. I was star struck (& drunk). It totally made my graduation night incredible!

More later, busy trying not to kill my family or myself!

Hold on Magnolia
I know what a true friend you've been
In my life I have had my doubts
But tonight I think I've worked it out with all of them
Hold on Magnolia to the thunder and the rain
To the lightning that has just signed my name to the bottom line
Hold on Magnolia
I hear that lonesome whistle whine
Hold on Magnolia
I think its almost time

Sometimes I wish I could still share music with my doppleganger. Just music. That we always got right.
