Last weekend my sister got ENGAGED! You can watch a video of it here if you wish. They haven’t picked a date but I think it’s going to be Fall of 2014 which gives us a lot of time to plan. We have already started some pinterest boards here and here. At least now I can pin wedding things without feeling guilty.
This is all new territory for me. My sister asked me to be her Maid of Honor (I knew she would, among our differences we still love each other). But that means I need to host a bridal shower and bachelorette party for her. I know NOTHING about hosting parties. I’ve never done this before so this will be an interesting experience for everyone involved.
I have no idea where I found this link but it is 13 Things You Didn’t Know About Wheel of Fortune. I found it really interesting. AKA this is useless information no one should know about a gameshow. Enjoy. Sidebar: They talk about the touchscreen TVs they use for the “letters” I remember when they moved from the letters she had to flip over to the touch-screens. I was watching with my grandpa and he said, “Well she probably got tired flipping all those letters! Look how much easier this is!”
I read a post earlier this week about Online Dating. I’ve dabbed in it here and there. But this post just made me laugh. There is LITERALLY a dating site for EVERYONE. Even if you’re married this post will give you a laugh.
Summer school started last week. Man is summer school fast. The sessions are super short (6 weeks each). I’m thinking about not even doing Summer 2 because 20 chapters in 6 weeks sounds more like torture than education. The class I’m taking now is only taught in summer and there is only 7 chapters so it’s just a chapter a week which I can manage. I think I’m going to use summer 2 time off to work on backed up blog stuff and website stuff I never have time for. I know I say this all the time and never do it lol

Last weekend I also went on a Retreat. The retreat was AWESOME!! It was exactly what I needed to hear at exactly the right time. Funny how god works like that? Interestingly enough it was a lot of married couples and then college kids. Hard to tell who was with who and such. But Jackie went through a singleness and just knows what it’s like and it just made me feel that much better about being single in this stage of my life. Made me feel like it’s not a bad problem like so many people make it out to be. I took a bunch of notes and am working on making them into blogposts in the coming weeks.

My mom is leaving tomorrow for a Catechetical Conference. I was supposed to go with her since I wasn’t working at the time she registered but I got a job since then which is good. I didn’t want to start and then have to ask for time off. I’m kind of sad because it’s in Ohio and I was going to meet up with some of my awesome #CathSorority and twitter friends. And we were going to take a day to go to Cedar Point! Oh well maybe next year. One cool thing my mom gets to do is go to a special breakfast with Father Robert Barron about his new video series since she registered early!!
