Baby Dan dressed as a devil. He acts like a little devil (towards his sister) almost on a daily basis, so this is a perfect outfit for our baby boy! This costume, like the pumpkin one below, works best for him because they are just like a shirt and this boy loves wearing shirts!
Dan and I will be married in Italy! Now the stress REALLY sets in. Actually, now I feel more motivated than ever to get stuff accomplished.
We are trying to plan our Destination Wedding and At Home Reception. We are hoping Dan's mom will take over planning the At Home Reception. It would be a huge help and she's an expert when it comes to hosting parties so I wouldn't feel uncomfortable about leaving it in her hands. It is important that we book our flights and our honeymoon soon. We were hoping that the flights would've dropped in price by now, but it is Europe and will likely not drop much more. We're hoping to enjoy Capri, Rome, and Florence Italy; Paris, France; Madrid or Seville, Spain and maybe London, England on our honeymoon.
So far, we have 8 confirmed guests--we're hoping a few more people will join us for what will be a fabulous vacation and a beautiful wedding!
This may sound really weird to a lot of people, but I thought I would share my problem to the readers.
I don't like calling people on the telephone and I don't like ordering food from a drive-thru
I get really nervous or anxious about picking up the phone and calling people. The only person I don't have a problem calling is D.
We don't eat fast food very often now that we're coming up on 6 months to the wedding, but if we do I don't want to drive---when I do drive, my heart begins to race, but I get through it.
I suffer from a bit of anxiety when it comes to these two activities, but thanks to D's help I don't let it control me--he encourages me to do drive to help me overcome my nervousness. I just have to push myself to get through it.
So this may answer questions my friends may have as to why I don't call as often as I should. :\
I've gotta say--I was a bit surprised when my Dad said he wanted to have his 60th Birthday Party at Chuck E. Cheese's. When I turned 6 or 7 I had my birthday party at ShowBiz Pizza Place (which was bought out by ChuckECheese years ago) and a few years later we have my Dad blowing out his candles here---I think that's awesome! We all had a fun time! The manager came up to him and said this was the first time he's had a birthday party for someone his age and it was great to see! I think so too! Below are a few pics from the party. Oh and my nephew was terrified of the robotic ChuckE.Cheese on stage so I had to block his view the entire time, he actually pulled me down several times and begged "Sit with me, Sit with me!". I know exactly how he feels though because I used to be terrified of the huge gorilla 'Fatz Geronimo' at ShowBiz.
They usually put the birthday boy's/girl's age on this sign, but my Dad didn't want 60 on there. They announced it on the loud speaker.
