2 weeks!

Alright, so it's been a couple weeks since we posted anything and I decided it was time....after reading someone else's blog and thinking how cool it was.
So, updates around here. Well, we have 2 weeks and 1/2 a day until we're married. Crazy! I get to be with Scott again, finally!, in one week and 1/2 a day, and I can't wait. This time, I finally get to see him and be with him and NOT have to leave eachother! I'm definitely looking forward to that. I'm tired of being seperated so much.
Sometimes, I just get these excited, happy, joyful, love surges about Scott and I feel all bubbly and happy and that just happened. hehe. He's so wonderful. I have no idea how he puts up with my crud.
The temple a couple weeks ago was amazing. I was really overwhelmed by the end, but still felt wonderful. The spirit was incredible. I'm still working on writing everything I felt down in a journal. It was the best experience so far as an engaged couple to see eachother inside the temple. Wow. I loved it. Overall, the trip to Nauvoo was amazing and I so enjoyed being with Scott. And he was so cool about my inability to stay awake in the car :-)
Wedding plans are down to the details. I can't wait for all of that to be over, honestly. I'm sick of lists, phone calls, disappointments, appointments, consultations, etc etc. It's a never ending To-Do list, but it's almost over! Everything seriously is gonna be perfect. I can't wait. Ah!
Also, all our insurance stuff, honeymoon plans, phone plan, and apartment is totally working out! Scott and I, mostly Scott, have been stressed with those details, but they're starting to fall into place. Now only if we could suddenly inherit several million dollars... :-)
The best news? I can fit in my wedding dress finally! Haha. I bought it a little tight with plans of losing weight (please laugh now) and it hasn't happened until this past week. I tried it on and it was almost perfect. I think I'm moving toward that new stress level of NOT's the next step up from stressful eating.
And this is definitely way too long, but I honestly don't think anyone reads it anyways. So who really cares? lol. Maybe I should test it out by asking some question to see if we do have any readers....
What are the most important pieces of furniture for a new apartment? And how much should you spend to furnish the first time?
Tha-tha-that's all folks!

How many people does it take to find Karissa and Scott an Apartment?

It takes 7 people to find Karissa and Scott an apartment!

Which means....we found one! Wahoo!

I basically wrote this same post on the Dodds' blog, so I won't completely re-post it. Life is wonderful. We have an apartment (which could be an entire post by itself), Scott's here for the weekend and we're going to Nauvoo tomorrow to go through the temple. It'll definitely be a wonderful weekend!

Basically, I've said it once and I'll say it a billion more times. Scott is incredible! I don't know what I would do without him. Seeing him again and being with him again felt like we hadn't ever been apart. i mean, it did, but not really. It's pretty neat. He's definitely my better half! 4 weeks from today. Wow! :-)

Okay, so I had a bad night and I just wanna say this for the record.

When you go out to eat, please take your server into consideration. Sit down, order, eat, pay, leave. Especially on a busy Friday night. Please do not sit down at 6:00, wait an hour to order, take an hour to eat, and talk for another 2 hours before leaving at 10:25pm, leaving your server without a table the entire shift and only leaving $13 as the tip. If you want to stay for four hours, consider that your server typically makes at least $5-8 bucks per table per hour and leave at least $30-40 if you plan to stay for 4 hours. Otherwise, you will ruin somebody's night. Guaranteed.

...not that perhaps I had that experience tonight... :-(

That's all.

I love Scott!

I don't know how to use

Okay, so how do you make the list of friends/friends' blogs in the sidebar? I apparently can't figure it out...nor can I fall asleep. :-)

5 weeks from today! (thursday, the 9th) wahoo!

Operation Wedding Dress

So today I'm starting Operation Wedding Dress. Basically, I found the perfect dress I love and can't live without, the only problem is it's like, 5 pounds too tight. So, today is the day I'm really gonna start being good and try to trim down so I don't have to pay to have it altered. That's the plan, we'll see how it goes. I got 38 days (I think). Wahoo!

This morning I got off to a great start with a 10+ mile bike ride with my mom. I managed to swallow a bug, make it up the killer hill without walking, and ride through a sprinkler. It was great! I love kansas. Then we started the Belly Fat Blaster dvd, but had too many distractions. We'll get back to it later. I'm also gonna (try) swear off soda and bread while working at Bravo and not eat the delicious berry dumpcake calling my name this second.... is great :-)

I came up with a dilemma the other do you spell and pronounce a plural Dodds? Doddses, Dodds's, Dodds', Doddses's? I posted on the Dodds family blogs and got some hilarious comments. If anyone else feels the need to comment too, that'd be appreciated. Maybe we should build our fan base first though....hmmm

"I just want to quit life and be with you nonstop" -Scott (isn't he cute?) :-)

I wish I had a cool picture to post....
