2. My boss quit last week. What is totally ironic is that she is going to work for Hallmark as a District Manager. After working for Carlton Cards for 10 years, even mentioning the "H" word seems offensive. I wish her well though - she will certainly be missed.
3. OH deer - when I was driving home tonight, there was a sign at the gate entrance to "Slow down to avoid hitting the deer" YIKES - something tells me that must have happened in order to post a sign about it. That would be all I need - to take out bambi on the way home. Good lord. 4. Diet is slowly coming along. I finally had a good weight loss week last week - almost 2 pounds. Slow and steady wins the race, right?
5. I love John McCain's running mate. Call me crazy. I think she looks like a cross between Tina Fey and Karen from Will and Grace.
What are your weekend plans like? Tim's family is all getting together tomorrow night at Opah to celebrate our engagement and Tim/his sister Erin's birthdays. Sunday we are going to go look at more wedding locations and Monday, after work, we are going to a barbecue at Tim's dad's to celebrate his/Erin's birthdays. Poor kids of divorced parents - everything has to be celebrated twice. Not to mention, Tim gets a third birthday dinner from me on his actual Birthday. Look out, diet plans!

But it was all worthwhile at the end of the day when I sat down on the couch and they fought over who got to sit on my lap while we watched Blue's Clues. I convinced them that there was room enough for both of them and so, he we are. Snuggletime is always the best part of the day, wouldn't you agree?

So, how is this for a cute start. I ordered these fabulous gift tags last night from becreativestationary shop on Etsy. They are so me - I love the cranberry colored damask pattern and the best part...
They are personalized! So classy. I had her do chocolate ribbon with them and I am thinking they would pair well with a solid brown paper. Be sure to check out her store - her prices are great and she has tons of other items, including cute party favor tags for those of you moms out there. As my dear friend Jonathan reminded me today - "Life favors the prepared"

And let the fall baking season begin...

Tim and I spent the afternoon doing wedding stuff. We went to visit Orange Hill, which I shared with you in my last post. It is lovely and fits perfectly in our budget which is great. I don't think it is the right place for the ceremony itself though. There just isn't a rightful spot for such an important part of the day. So, off we went to research churches nearby. We stumbled upon the First Baptist Church of Yorba Linda. There is something so "southern" and "cottage-ish" about it.
It reminds me of the church in Steel Magnolias. Cute, isn't it? I know what you are thinking...Kristin loves cottage AND all things southern.
It is definately a contender.
I have given myself a month deadline to book a site and with that, to finalize a day.
I'll keep you all posted.

Unfortunately, getting engaged in July has posed an awkward time constraint for having the fall wedding of my dreams. Either we rush rush rush and plan things fast and furious for this fall (no thanks, I have enough stress in my life) or we wait over a year (Tim says no way). So alas, I am on the hunt for a new theme. So, I need your help my fellow blogger friends - some of the most creative and inspiring women I know! If you have suggestions on themes, please share. If you come up with a theme I wind up using, I will send you a prize! Good luck and get creative!

This guy is part of our holiday line this season. All decked out in his Williams-Sonoma fineries - complete with a beautiful Mauviel copper hat. Don't you just love it.
