I was searching around on the web today looking at possible sites for bridesmaids dresses and flower girls dresses and found some potential sites! Never too soon to start looking, right? Check out the following sites and anything red is perfect. Purple is no, Orange and Pink are also no's. Just reds:) heh.
So wanted to post some sites and to send our love. Happy Holidays!!

Greetings from Punxy! Hah! This is our soon to be christmas card picture of us and brandon's favorite groundhog statue. The coal miner Phil. Omi. Anyway, all is well here. Brandon is still working hard and we are dogsitting for Kayla's boyfriend. He has a little chiuachua named Ricky and he's cute as anything. We had a Steeler party yesterday at our little apt. yesterday and had a blast. It was good to have all our family together cheering on the Steelers, who won, thank goodness.
My mom, Mare, and Grammar Studer are working on the bridal shower, which is on Sunday, July 27th from 12-2pm at St. Barnabus Church hall. We found out we won't be able to start decorating until after 9:30am mass, which means we are going to be buzzing around to get that place together before noon. No worries, I'm sure though, it will be fabulous.
The decision has been made by Brandon (and me!!) that the groomsmen will wear black tuxes, ivory shirts, black ties, and camo vests. yes, i said camo vests. Since all the girls are wearing varying shades of red, it would be impossible to match guys with girls. Brandon is thrilled as the groomsmen will be, i'm sure. i said as long as the jackets are buttoned up at church, i don't care what they look like at the reception...keep it classy for the Lord, ya know? hah. If you want to see what it looks like, check out: http://www.jimsformalwear.com/ac_fb_camo.htm Again, with BLACK ties, not the weird camo tie that guy has on in the picture.
Brand and I are going to start looking for new apts. in monroeville so that we can make the move after Christmas and before New Years. Hope the weather holds out. Hope all is well with everyone...the holidays are on their way, so try to stay stress-free. Remember to keep your eyes peeled for red dresses, and any ideas for the flower girls, I'm still looking too. Love youns!

Some important decisions about the wedding have been made:
1. The date of the plunge has been changed. Please keep your calendars open for August 16, 2008.
2. We have booked our photographer and i'm sooo excited. Her website is http://www.michellemisner.com/ and she's fabulous.
Alright-that's it. Hah! More to come soon, at the one year away mark. A little intimidating that it will be official wedding crunch time in a little over a week. Oh well, so excited, but lots to do.
miss you all.

We took it at the West Indies Parade in Brooklyn. fun. So, my point..a year has gone by pretty quickly, so yay for the wedding being a year away because we have ALOT to do until then. haha.
All is going well in Punxsy. Brandon is working like a maniac at the store, and it is really starting to shape up nice. Literally, he works 15 hour days (at least1-2 times a week). I never get to see him, so I take him dinner and watch him unload canned goods. Romantic, we realize.
I am off to New York as of tomorrow and will be there until October 5. Brand is going to have to try to survive without me at his every need. haha, I flatter myself. I will be in training sessions 5 days a week and then have my weekends to myself. Hopefully going to visit PS 27 and all my kiddies one day. Hopefully Elena stops working so hard so I can squeeze in a visit to Boston (maybe birthday weekend?)
It smells/feels like fall today, and it makes me sooo happy. I really couldn't love a season any more than I love fall. I definitely wouldn't want to get married in any other season. i love love love fall! yay.
go steelers. hah.

a) Brandon is still working for ALDI and will transfer to the Punxsutawney store in September until Christmas eve of this year. From there we will move to Monroeville, so he can train as District Manager out there until June. Then, we don't know where ALDI will take us.
b) I got a job with Scantron corporation (ya know the online testing system at schools!) I am a training consultant and will travel all over the nation to train teachers and administration how to use the program. Yay for traveling! I am leaving for my Train-the-trainer session on Sunday in San Diego. Fun, I've never been to the west coast.
c) Brand and I have been progressively moving to our mini-Punxsy apartment. Its adorable, and there will be pictures to follow.
d) I bought my wedding gown, yay yay yay! Tasha and I went into the city and it should be delivered to my parents house by Thanksgiving! It's beautiful and I love it.
e) I bought a new laptop and i'm really excited about it.
Meesh's wedding today and Stef&Justin's bachelor(ette) parties tonight. Next weekend is their wedding, soooo excited!
Well, all for now. Enjoy the steaming weather.
