I feel accomplished.

short post...but I thought I'd share some fun accomplishments of this past week:

  1. I found my wedding dress. yippeeeee! I NEVER thought I'd be excited about finding "the" one, but shoot, I sure am!
  2. We booked (what I think) is THE most important part of our reception: the photo booth!  I am so unbelievably excited about this reception feature.  I even flipped for the extra $50 so I can have all of the photo booth images on a DVD (& I'm sure they'll make there way on here and on Facebook too :)
  3. I am almost done with another grad class...I only have 3 more to take (1 this semester and 2 in the spring) before I'm DONE with my masters in educational technology through Mizzou!  Hello pay raise!  Hello being DONE with the student side of school!! (at least for a while... :)
  4. I am REALLY close to booking the last "major" component of our wedding: the photographer.  Hoping to have this done by the end of September (fingers crossed!)
  5. I've been sleeping really well lately, a big part thanks to the awesome air purifier I bought at Bed, Bath, and Beyond.  I just wish I could bring that monster air tower with me everywhere I go...
  6. I got the new Mac OS X (operating system) for my laptop: Lion.  Woo hoo!  It's like getting a new computer!
  7. Mike and I addressed, stamped, stuffed, and sealed all 200 of our "Save the Dates," ready to be sent out hopefully sometime soon!
  8. My favorite TV show started last week: Survivor.  Now I have something to look forward to at 7pm every Wednesday night.  Yee haw!
  9. Scooter didn't freak out with the recent thunderstorm that rolled through STL.  This is HUGE.  Maybe my little boy is finally growing up and realizing he cannot eat the thunderstorms...
  10. I have a personal day next Monday.  I LOVE these days...& my sub plans are ALREADY done.

OHHHHH EMMMMMM GEEEEEEE!  If you don't have the Instagram app for your iPhone, you need to download it. NOW.  I just gave you the link.  Seriously, it's hands-down my favorite iPhone app.

If you already have Instagram you already know about the awesomeness I am referring to.  It is a photo sharing app that allows you to "enhance" your photos with various effects.  It takes your everyday iPhone camera photo and turns it into a seemingly professionally captured image.  Seriously.  I'm not lying.  Check out some of the masterpieces I've captured...then go download the app (if you haven't yet) and start following me --> pepinalex

Enjoy! :)
