Cancer news

Posted: Tuesday, January 30th, 2007 @ 9:07 am in News | No Comments »

A friend of mine posted some articles about what seems to be a groundbreaking cancer treatment, yet it hasn’t hit mainstream news. I don’t follow cancer treatments, so for all I know, there’s a drug like this every 6 months that turns out to flop, but I found these interesting enough that I thought […]

Weekend stuff

Had a pretty good weekend, partially busy, partially not. On Friday night, Amanda and I went to see Don Pasquale at the Hoyt Sherman. I thought it was really cute - a good comedy to pass the time (oh and the opera performers had wonderful voices too). It was a good time […]

Meeting with Steve last night went really well. It was a combo of reminiscing (since he’s known me and my family forever) and mapping out the day. He read us some things he’s planning on saying (other things he wants to keep a surprise) and we’re both really happy with it! What […]

Well after this March, today will no longer be our anniversary - but for now, January 25th still is! Three years ago today in the morning we were laughing about something. He leaned over and said in a very cute way “Holly, will you be my girlfriend?” Of course I said yes […]

The floodgates are opening

Wedding appointments are really piling on now! We met w/ our caterer at Hyperion and had a tasting tonight. We thought we were just going to get little “tastes” of everything, but they brought out whole meals!! Between the two of us we had 4 meals (obviously a big doggie bag at […]

MORE steps

Not a whole lot to say today! I’m kind of boring myself with posting about my steps, but this is a good way to hold me a little more accountable
Steps: 10,691
Aerobic: 3,924 over 35 minutes
Calories: 309
Fat: 17.8g
Miles: 4.38
It definitely takes effort to get it to 10,000 so I understand why they say […]

I was not a good girl today w/ steps. I blame 2 things (it can never be ME who’s at fault )
1. Getting back into the routine after 4 days off of it
2. I’ve been fighting a cold that has worse symptoms everyday. Today I was tired all day long […]

First wedding present

We got our first wedding gift in the mail today from a couple who can’t make it to the wedding (live in NM). Chris gave me crap that I didn’t wait for him to open it, but it was an envelope so I just opened it with the rest of the mail! They […]

Wedding pictures

Here’s some highlights from the day - I should be getting more pictures from other people’s cameras. I realized that I have no posed wedding pictures, but I’ll nab some of those when Eric uploads them to a Yahoo photo album.
Here’s one of Emily & Josh right after the ceremony was over (excuse the […]

Wedding weekend

Mom and I headed down to KC Thursday afternoon. We got into Liberty and went over to Emily and Josh’s to help with decorations. Laura (Emily’s oldest sister - she lives in Oregon now so we don’t get to see her that often), Steve (Laura’s boyfriend), Susie (their mom), Da (Em’s matron […]
