Ahh yeah…it has been feeling like summer lately…the continuous days of heat. That makes me sweat. All the wedding planning we’ve been doing. That makes me sweat too. Let’s see, since the last time I blogged an entire month has almost passed. I can’t believe the beginning of August is this weekend! Yikes! But another productive month has kept me on my toes and checking things off my never ending list of to do’s. Well, the weekend after BFFs wedding, we were up north for brudder and seester’s engagement party; our ring bearer’s 10th birthday; and my cousin’s baby shower — what a busy weekend, but so happy to be able to attend so many things and see so many people! The weekend after that we hit up Downtown LA to find outfits for our ring bearer and flower girl. Boy was it hot there. Walking around down Santee felt like being in a huge sauna with fumes of street meat ha ha. But we accomplished our search and excited to give them their outfits soon! As our reward we hit up our favorite burger bar, Father’s Office. Delish. Salivating as I’m typing. Joe was off on a man night for Jevon’s upcoming nuptials as I continued to shop for wedding stuff and had some craft time at home. Another productive weekend. Last week we were busy finalizing our paperwork with the Church and Father Tim so we can send all our stuff to the Diocese of Honolulu. So glad to get that done with. We had a great last meeting with Father Tim and can’t wait for our church ceremony. I never realized how much paperwork the Catholic Church requires. It kinda stressed me out, making sure we had our own diocese requirements checked off and also for Hawaii. But yay, its all good!

This past weekend was also another productive weekend. Joe was off on his own man weekend with his buddies, brother and cousins in San Diego for Comic-Con and the usual bachelor debauchery. I on the other hand hung out with the BFF — we enjoyed an overnight stay at the Renaissance ClubSport which was a really cool hotel that’s near our house. Really modern room and facilities and awesome gym! They have this cafe that has menu items under 485 calories! It was pretty cool. Saturday was spent shopping at the Spectrum and the Rack, then at night we focused on wedding stuff while sipping on yummy pisco sours. Over the course of 2 heavy handed cocktails, we were able to make the reception seating chart, cut ribbon, and plan games for the upcoming wedding showers. Sunday was spent eating delicious dim sum, window shopping at Costco and hearing all about Joe’s man weekend in SD.

Today, its back to the daily grind at work and I’m already looking forward to this weekend — our Bay Area wedding shower and my bachelorette party in the city. I can’t wait! My turn for quality time with the girls — yahoo! Seriously….is it Friday yet?
