Too Busy to Post

Sorry I’ve been too busy to post lately. I just started studying to become a registered veterinary technician and that is going to take about a year. I started working with this vet hospital when I was in college and I thought someday I’d be teaching philosophy. But I really like what I’m doing here and I love working with animals.┬áTo get the most out of this experience, I want to be certified and learn all aspects of veterinary work.

I want to post more than I have lately, but I’m not sure when that will be. Hopefully I’ll be back in about six months. Stay tuned!

Wedding Reception

I loved the reception. Everything was very elegant and romantic without reading too feminine. We had good food, free booze (a must in my book), a great photo booth, and great speeches. The coolest part about my wedding was that I got to command all of my favorite people in the world to be in one room at once. Yup, that’s my fave.

This past year has been such a whirlwind for me! Between getting married and being incredibly busy at work, I’ve barely had time to come up for air. But I must say, I’m loving it all. Our courthouse ceremony was great. Since all weddings go off without a hitch, there was a freeway crisis that caused most of the party attending to be an hour or more late. Luckily, we were able to wait for them and still actually get married. Go us! I’m still waiting for a few more edits on professional photos but would love to share once I get them.

Blog Break

Hello everyone, I will be taking a while off from blogging in order to snuggle puppies. As kids go back to school, there will be a shortage of family puppy snugglers but, thankfully, I’m willing to fill the void.

In reality, this is not the case as much as I wish it was. The next couple of weeks are actually crunch time for my Practice of the Year application at work and I barely have time for anything right now. However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I will have plenty of wedding posts coming up. I just finished making invitations and they turned out so beautiful. I’ll be putting together centerpieces and trying on wedding dresses so stay tuned.

Wedding Food Tasting

Is there a better aspect of wedding preparation than food tasting? I don’t think so. Garrick, myself, and my planner were able to sit down and enjoy various options for appetizers, salads, entrees, and desserts. I was so stuffed afterwards but it all tasted incredible and I feel really fortunate that my guests will be able to enjoy some good eats.

Photo Day

Remember the practice of the year project I’m working on? Well, part of the application requires that various photos are submitted. The photographer that has done our hospital’s photos in the past was in town and, as a courtesy, the hospital allowed staff who was interested to get personal photos taken at the park where we set-up a mock community event for photos for the application. I decided our personal photos would be Star Wars themed and since I could not handle taking three dogs to this shoot where I would also be working, I only brought Rowan.
