HAPPY FRIDAY!!! 😀
Please tell me it’s not just me, but did you Dashboard on WordPress change too? (If you have WordPress, that is! 🙂 ) Mine looks a bit different, more modern/ updated…I think that’s the correct words 😉
Anyways, you know I have to say it because it only happens once– ONE WEEK UNTIL I’m GETTING MARRIED!!! 😀 Can you tell I’m just a bit excited?! I can’t even begin to describe the feeling- it is beyond exciting actually! This weekend is going to be VERY busy.
I have my hair trial tomorrow. I waited kind of until last minute on that one, only because I REALLY REALLY trust my hair stylist- she ROCKS! Seriously, the best hair stylist ever. I’m amazed at how FAST my hair is growing- she has recommended the best products for my hair type & has been doing all sorts of treatments to it. Here is what I’m thinking of doing:
With no flowers though, sunflowers would be too big & my veil has a special clip on it that will be seen. What do you think of it? I definitely need to have something with my hair off of my shoulders…I mean it IS Florida & even though our ceremony & reception are inside, we will be doing a lot of pictures outside.
Tomorrow I will be getting my high lights touched up too & a little trim. Then it’s time for the hair & make up trial! I will try to take a few pictures of my hair so that you can see what it looks like on me..and then you can give me your honest opinion!
This weekend Craig & I are also doing some stuff- like working on our dances,….and I HAVE got to memorize my vows!! Since we are NOT doing traditional vows, we will not have them said to us & then repeated- they are coming straight from memory…and from the heart. Any tips on memorizing things??
I got the Nook Color!!!! So far I LOVE it. I cannot put it down! The reason that I decided to go ahead & purchase one of these e-readers is because I plan to get LOTS of use on it…and because I think it’s PERFECT for our honeymoon! Not only do we have a pretty long flight, but I think it will be perfect for reading by the pool and the beach.
I was planning on purchasing a bunch of books that you recommended…and once I started adding up the prices of the book individually, (&holy cow! why are books so darn expensive?! A paperback for $19.95?! Is that a joke?!) I figured that it would be a good idea to just go ahead & take the plunge & get the Nook Color.
Before I bought it though, I did a lot of research on it & the Kindle 3. I wasn’t sure what the features & benefits of each of them were, but after exploring Google for a while…I got my answer. Honestly, I probably could of gone with just the regular Nook, but honestly if I’m going to spend that kind of money, I mine as well just get the one I want.
Here are the advantages of the Nook Color over the Kindle 3 that I found:
1. You can ‘rent’ books from the library. (you cannot do that with the kindle)
2. You can ‘lend’ books to other people with a Nook.
3. It’s in COLOR!
4. It has a full web browser- I hear the other ones only have limited web browsing.
5. You can download any new software that they might come out with for the Nook, I read that you have to keep buying the Kindles- like Kindle 1, Kindle 2, Kindle 3, etc. because they do not let you download the latest software for it.
6. The convinence of going to Barnes & Noble to download their free weekly books- and there are Barnes & Nobles EVERYWHERE.
The advantages of the Kindle:
2. The battery life lasts longer.
3. Lighter (I think by like .2 ounces)
Again, these are just things that I read– please do NOT just go on my opinions if you are deciding what to buy. I hear that they are both really good & if you own either you love them. When I asked on Facebook & Twitter who preferred what, I got a mixed review of both- it’s either you are a Nook lover or Kindle lover.
I cannot wait to play around with this more- I’m still trying to figure out all of the things you can do with it! I know that there is an app on it for Angry Birds.
I know SO MANY people who are addicted to that game! I don’t get why, but I guess I’ll have to play it to find out. 🙂
Oh, I forgot to mention that this weekend I am also making a BUNCH of goodies for Craig’s co-workers for a brunch they are having on Monday. The company is actually going to pay me to cater it for them! I’m so excited to try out some new recipes & make some of my favorites . 🙂 I will definitely be sharing some recipes with you soon!!!
I hope you have a great Friday! TGIF 😀
Questions before you go:
1. Do you have a Nook or a Kindle? What is your favorite part about it?
2. If you are married, how did you wear your hair- up or down? If you could go back, would you of changed your hair style or were you happy with it?
3. Are you doing anything fun this weekend?? Share it with me 🙂
