I'm gunna tear your ass up [28 Jul 2005|12:08am]
[ mood | irate ]

So....... yeah I'm totally pissed off b/c my camera isn't working right I think I really need new battereies i mean besides my rechargeables. I put my rechargeables in and every since coming bak from Hawaii my camera isn't working!!!!! Talk about SHIT and Carlo is coming in Friday I NEED to get this camera to work. I turn it on and it will review old pictures but the screen shows black when I go to take a picture and when I take one the screen is still black even though it's fine in my room! GRRR I'll figure this out I guess plus Kodak has the shittiest help and the worst and most vague manual! AHHHHHHHH kill me now

I DON"T WANT TO WORK I JUST WANT TO.... [25 Jul 2005|03:21pm]
I haven't updated in a while so I'm sorry, not like it will matter to anyone since i do this for me and only me but yeah. Anyway, I've been reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and it's good so far. I'm a little over halfway through it but then again as i said I've been busy. I'm excited I finally got some face bronzer just Rimmel but it works well. Last night I went w/ my fam to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and eat at a fabulous Italian restaurant called Sal & Judy's it's in LaCombe like 15 min from Slidell anyway it was b/c my dad's birthday is this Thursday! Yeah i definatley have to say hats off to Tim Burton for his use of bright and bold colors again the grey of the factory and white of the snow and city and how the eyes of the other children going to the factory were either bright blue (contacts of course) or a color other than brown! Also Johnny Depp did an amazing job as Charlie such a dark character and his makeup and eye color and hair color completed the look. Along with the giant white goggles. THe laugh he created was sinister in a strange way and the soundtrack by Danny Elfmann was just great very much like Nightmare Before Christmas. There's another movie coming out called the corpses bride and the animation and darkness of it are along the lines of nightmare before Christmas of course it's by Tim Burton! Anyway, YUCK I have work tonight I'm not excited I might possibly see Carlo this Friday though YEAH I haven't seen him since well right before he went to big bend it was only for like 6 hrs total prob seeing that they left at 3am! Anyway, we might go cake taste testing at Haydels, Swiss COnfectionary, and Gambino's. I'll check the prices and etc. etc. etc. we also need to line up a DJ to go see b4 we go back too. I don't know how to manage that seeing as that I'm being lazy with the wedding stuff it's winding down and about time! LOL We've contracted with Limos, Carriage, Reception, Church, Florist, Photgrapher, and I have my gown and veil in even though it wasn't supposed to be in for another 12-13 weeks we have no place to store it luckily we happen to know the manager of the shop so no big deal! Well I'm going to go I have work at 5 and have been in my PJ's all day!!

...Bang on the Drum All Day

Alright so I'm back from Hawaii here's a super long post about EVERYTHING pretty much I wrote journals along the way so I could update when I got bak so here goes


Alright so it’s like 10:51 and we have to get up at six tomorrow! Anyway, well I had fun today we went snorkeling right outside our resort and I got w/i 1ft of a sea turtle I mean 2 giant sea turtles it was amazing!!! The fish were gorgeous too but WOW about the sea turtle. Also, we somehow got an upgrade to a suite so me and my little brother are in 1 room w/ a sofa bed, TV, bathroom w/ vanity and fridgerator and my parents are right next to us!! So………. It’s really cool plus we had 2 free passes to go snorkeling and 2 free mai tai’s but we got pina coladas or I did b/c my mom didn’t want them. The nearest town is like 35 min away w/ nothing in between no gas stations no nothing, think about being in rural North LA and how there’s nothing for miles at a time. Let’s see I think that’s it so good night guys I’m tired

~*Heath*~

Okay right now I feel absolutely disgusting b/c we are staying in the royal honae in Maui and it was rated good by AAA but it’s so gross apparently my mom and dad were shocked at how it looked to but it’s their own fault since they didn’t see pictures of it online or have stuff sent to the house about what it looked like I mean we’ve been planning this for 1 year. Last night we were in the amazing resort and a Marriot property that teaches you to NEVER get off a chain property no matter what!!! The only non-Marriot place and it crappy as all hell. The walls are gross it looks like it was made in the 50’s and updated in the 80’s the bedspreads look like they’re at least 20 -30 years old the bathroom only has a stand up shower that has like dirt or something on the bottom of the shower. And NOW my dad wants to see if there is wireless in this horrible resort!!!! PLUS on the bed was a butterfly piece to something. There is no bathroom door except a sliding door that offers no privacy and it’s like rotten glue or something it looks like it hasn’t been cleaned in a while and it’s been repainted and it’s gross I wouldn’t wish this on anyone I would rather have a motel 8 b/c they are cleaner than this crappy place!!!!! AHHHHHH! I can live w/ this tonight I guess. Anyway I have to go I still feel gross!

~*Heath*~

Alright so right now I’m in the Honalulu airport waiting to fly out b/c I fly out at 10:30 Hawai’i time that’s like well 5 hrs up is ya’ll time! 3:30am. We flew in from Maui at like 6:30 or something and have been waiting since YUCK huh Also we checked on my now gone CD player that was not grabbed when I got off the plane or at least it wasn’t grabbed by me so yeah ya know whatever. $35.00 for a CD player to Hawai’i that I bought literally a day or 2 before we left is now gone I had it for no more than 5 days! THAT SUCKS! PEOPLE SUCK! Anyway well my time in Maui was great despite the gross room sadly enough I got used to it. The next day was really fun believe it or not like we found a local bakery that was amazing I had a pineapple bagel one day there WOW was it good. Anyway we drove the road to Hana (pronounced like wanna except w/ an h) WARNING: DO NOT DRIVE ROADS THAT ARE INSANE MOUNTAIN ROADS IF YOU GET MOTION SICK AT ALL OR EVEN IF YOU DON’T! Alright it was still fun there were waterfalls in the middle of the road but the way back was the white knuckle driving I honestly didn’t watch the road! It was a 2 way that only fit one car and had no guard rail as you drive on the side of a 3,500ft mountain yeah not cool in order to barely, and I mean barley like w/i inches of hitting the car next to you, pass you have to pull over and if you both have convertibles you can touch the people in the car next to you and the side mirrors almost touch!!! Also, it was a dirt road after Hana actually the crazy roads were all after Hana and I think the rental companies won’t let you drive it OH WELL. What they don’t know won’t hurt them so there ya go. Chris kept getting sick and we were worried about making it bak to the luah that night so we couldn’t pull over and take pictures and well b/c Chris didn’t feel good he was hot (here’s a history lesson Chris is hot when it’s 59 degrees so there ya go I mean yeah it SUCKS BIG TIME) So…… the fabulous view I couldn’t capture the rainbow over the pacific going into the clouds I couldn’t get either! I attempted to capture it through a damn small window and it came out crappy! Anyway, well after Hana we had a luah it was pretty fun I mean I had a pina colada, lava flow (it tasted like strawberry yogurt!!!), and a strawberry daiquiri and it was in a pineapple that had the inside dug out. It was cool I have pictures and my dad bought mom and I both leis and they’re currently in a squishy icechest we’re trying to preserve them b/c they keep for like 4 days. Also, hula dancing is insane I don’t know how they shake their hips and butts so fast but then again I can’t shimee so yeah! LOL Well, the next day started at the bakery and then we went on a yacht and sailed in the Pacific to go snorkeling and we saw about 12 dolphins all at once swimming around the boat WOW WOW WOW unbelievable I couldn’t believe it really I just couldn’t believe it! Well, they had an underwater camera photo guy and he was actually pretty hot and really nice but he had a $6,000 camera and hung onto the end of the boat while he took pictures we also saw giant sea turtles like we saw on Hawai’i but not that up close. It was still cool. I tanned on the top of the boat along w/ all the other ladies around my age. Well we got to the spot and I took off w/o my family and roamed on my own and immediately found the choral reefs and fish and they swam around me nad stuff it was awesome I mean WOW electric orange and blue fish and all the fish you see on the documentaries and stuff are the fish I got to swim with!! We swam for an hour and got called back to the boat to leave I only heard the last call though but WOW was I ready to get in the Pacific is really cold and after an hr it’s freezing. Even the camera guy had like a 2nd skin on. After we got on the boat they had lunch ready and I tried a Mai Tai EEEWWWW is all I can say it tasted like nasty cherry cough syrup! I had one sip and threw the rest out! We met a family and the dad grew up in Monroe and when I told him I went to school in Natchitoches he said Northwestern and I was like yeah he said he went to Monroe and I told him I studied music and he said yeah they have a great program they also had a boy Chris’s age and a girl my age so I had someone to talk to it was nice! It’s fun being on trips but it’s like I just want to speak to people my age about stuff ya know. Anyway, well I got off and tanned then we went to church wait not just any church but an unairconditioned church that simply moved the hot air around w/ fans I was burning up and about to start sweating. After church we ate and NOT Hawai’ian food. Like that nasty chicken grilled in the skin it’s like baked chicken from high school cafeterias is about the best way to describe it and macaroni salad and a scoop of rice! NO NO NO mom and I had Mexican. Chris had Italian and dad had Southern. LOL WOW you never know how much you miss a baked potatoe and chili until it’s totally gone and unable to get. Well, after that we shopped on of all places Front Street which is packed w/ a million stores and WOW I saw some awesome artists one was local and one was a Russian surrealist and OMG was he great. He had a picture of 2 melting candles and the candle in the back was the 12 apostles and there was 1 off to the side that was Judas and the light in the front was Christ’s light and I can go on and on but yeah his name was Victor Br something I have his website and card and will post it Shan you would really like it I think! There was one picture I would love I mean love to buy for my bedroom when I get a house or condo w/ Carlo and whatever anyway it had 2 people w/ there arms around each other and the lighting in it was a yellow like a sunset there was a large key off to the left of them ad a tree and the branches of the tree and scenary created a clock around them nad actually had the numbers in roman numerals and it represented time standing still. He was in the gallery and painting a picture and so far he had a violin which cast an angels shadow. They also had a local artist that had real real beachy pictures with bright vibrant colors and it made you want to jump in the picture and his works are based on actual places in Maui but he paints these places from his head b/c we watched him paint it was unbelievable. I also saw original Picasso, Rembrant, Renoir, and CRAP I can’t think of it uhhh Carlo has an original by him and his mom has a lithograph of his work. French artist oh well I will think of it. The galleries in Maui are amazing more galleries than shops almost w/ the artist in them painting! So….. awesome. I realized that night just how badly burned I was my stomach is a pink to bright red and so is my back my legs are super dark and so are my arms I am the tannest I have EVER been and I mean EVER even my mom said she had never seen me this dark. Well, I guess I’ll go sadly I have nothing else to do but miss Carlo and my friends and listen to my CD’s currently it’s Dashboard. Depressing really I should stop listening but I won’t so good night I will be home 5pm Monday yeah tomorrow Aloha and Mahalo if you’ve read this (Mahalo is thank you)

Thinking is just too much to ask
~*Heath*~


By the way the artists name is Victor Bregada and his stuff is AMAZING. anyway good night all

I hope you know you’re my favorite thing about the west coast! [14 Jul 2005|03:46am]
[ mood | exhausted ]

Here are my journals I've been keeping while on vacation so here ya go!

I hope you know you’re my favorite thing about the west coast

Alright so it’s the first day of my trip Well, not even the first day but yeah ya know!! I’m totally posting from the airplane well not posting really I’m just writing this in Microsoft Word and am gunna transfer to my journal when I actually get back home but I knew I would have so much to say so I’ll write each day as if I were updating my journal. For starters my day started at like 4:30am and yeah our plane which was going to take off from New Orleans at 7:30 taxied out on the runway and we turned bak b/c the left engine failed and so there was a 3 hr. delay but we had to get tickets to another plane so we caught a flight out, the last one of the day from New Orleans b/c of hurricane Dennis, at 11:25 and it was to Atlanta we got lunch at a little bistro WOW we had to take like a tram to get from 1 side of the airport to the other I haven’t seen anything like that even in like Boston and Philly airport so WOW! Anyway well we boarded and I’ve been listening to the Starting Line and talking to this really cool guy named Josh he’s in the army and lives in Oahu. Anyway he’s from Atlanta and is really cool. Shanda you would love him b/c well he’s 1st off built 2nd off he’s hot and 3rd he’s really nice. ANYWAY well Miss Congeniality 2 is on and I haven’t watched any of it LOL go figure. I started to draw something but would rather update and stuff. WOW my ears have been killing me ya know and I feel like I have to pee every 3 min even though I don’t but yeah ya know. Well I’m gunna go I’ll update later bye guys or shall I say Aloha

~*Heath*~

Alright so my first day in Hawaii and my parents are driving me up the frickin wall. My mom won’t stop laughing and it’s for no reason and stupid stuff. My dad was turning Dave Mathews off in the car for no reason. Also neither of them believe me. It completely sucks!!! First off we arrived last night late at like 2:30 NO time but like 10:30 Hawaii time. That flight lasted for frickin ever but the view flying over Hawaii was amazing I already have transferred my 86 photos that I took today. Well, I had real pineapple today and OMG it was amazing that was my whole breakfast. I mean I know everyone has tried pineapple but you haven’t REALLY tried pineapple it’s dripping juice and super sweet and just awesome. The Pacific water is so……… cold but I’m still going to take a surfing lesson b/c you just need to. My little brother is so babied it’s ridiculous I mean he can’t even take a shower w/o having someone help him turn the damn faucet off and he’s 9. Geez you would guess he was 6 w/ how he’s babied but whatever. Oh so after breakfast we went and drove around in the convertible and drove to USS Arizona Memorial. It’s really Pearl Harbor and they take you out on a boat to the memorial. WOW talk about sad over 1100 men died instantly from a dive bomber on the Arizona and it’s a tomb basically and oil still leaks out 2 quarts of oil leak from the sunken ship each day I have pictures of the oil. WOW amazing! We also drove through the mountains and passed a horrible non-contained fire on H1 (Hawaii interstate 1) Well, we got caught in traffic on the way back b/c they wouldn’t let anyway pass by this fire instead we all had to exit and we had no idea where we were going. OMG my dad is asleep and snoring so loud it’s impossible to sleep I guess my walkman will some in handy tonight. Oh I forgot that while riding in the convertible the top of my legs and random spots and streaks on my arm got super sunburned. Oh well…. That means w/ aloe vera it will be golden brown tomorrow. Tomorrow we’re going to the Northshore and Dole pineapple plantation. Then the next day we’re flying the Hawaii and out of Oahu. Oh, also b/c there are so many oriental people here especially Japanese we found an ethnic supermarket that was awesome and I got wasabi peas and they had like packaged squid and octopus and cuttle fish on the shelves and eel w/ the seafood it was cool. Well, I’m going to go b/c it’s 10:16 here or 3:16 in N.O. Well goodnight or for ya’ll, good morning

~*Heath*~

Alright well yesterday was really fun even though the morning kinda started out bad. But oh well!! Okay so we went to the Northshore and stopped at a shop or 2! The Northshore is so much more beautiful than Waikiki! The Northshore has tons of like pineapple and it’s so lush w/ greenery and tropical flowers that grow in potted plants in the states but grow wild in peoples yards as bushes and trees and simply hedges along the hwy and roads! UNBELIEVABLE! The sand is also a really weird texture it’s like little pebbles almost. The scenary is amazing like while you’re on the beach you’re also right by a mountain that’s right on the otherside of the road. I have so many pictures Oh we also went to the Dole pineapple plantation we went in the pineapple maze which was in the genus book of world records in 2001. Chris and I raced against mom and dad to find the 6 hidden station. The whole maze is made of hibiscus flowers and is really cool it’s hibiscus that have multi-colored leaves instead of a solid dark green. Mom and dad won but only b/c Chris and I got stuck in a line behind a group of men and women’s choirs for some high school for like 10 min. Right as we were next in the line mom called me on my cell phone! Totally NO FAIR! Well, I’ll update later I have to go eat lunch and it’s 35 min. to the next town we’re on the big island of Hawai’i I’ll tell you about it lata bye guys

hurricane Dennis [07 Jul 2005|10:30am]
[ mood | worried ]

Alright I totally know that I updated this morning but I'm updating again b/c of Dennis. So.... the weather channel says that Dennis is going more towards the Gulf Coast, but Bob Breck the local weather man who is very accurate in predicting where hurricanes are going says it's going more towards Louisiana coast which is New Orleans and Slidell!!! My family is getting a hotel in Kenner so we can get to the airport before too many people evacuate and my Aunt Liz is going to have to go get my grandma in Metairie. We always take care of my grandma b/c well my aunt Liz is very self-centered and if we ask her to do anything that's slightly out of her way even if it is going to pick up her mom she won't do it. This time we can't take care of her b/c we'll be gone hopefully. We have another problem though the shelter may not take our dogs b/c of hurricane Dennis so we'll have no where to keep him b/c our neighbors who usually watch our dogs are going on vacation too. Our other neighbors are older so we can't ask that of them. Anyway so we're basically screwed and stuff so yeah WOW lets hope Dennis doesn't hit here. He's supposed to get to 120mph and higher. Not something to just blow off ya know. So.. please pray it doesn't hit here not for just us but for everyone around here b/c the damage hurricanes leave is well....... scary!

wiping the sleep from my tired eyes [07 Jul 2005|08:33am]
[ mood | sleepy ]

Alright before i forget I had the weirdest dream. I just woke up. Alright it started out where our house was the mall that's in Slidell and my personal bathroom was like the food court bathroom except it was bright red. Anyway well apparently my cousin Megan lived w/ us or something and I was in the bathroom and locked the door to the whole bathroom I don't know why but whatever. Anyway, then I went from my personal food court bathroom to being on a stage w/ a couple people I work w/ like Ciji and for some reason Peter K. and Arsentiy were there. Other people where there but it was blurred anyway another thing was everyone was younger by like a couple years or even more except me. I was wearing pointe shoes but I couldn't actually go up b/c there was a break before the tip so I couldn't go up on pointe. We were doing leaps in arabasque and I slipped and got really angry and said it was b/c my pointe shoes were broken so I took them and my SOCKS off (socks with POINTE SHOES!!!!!) Anyway and so me and Ciji were going on to Nationals on pointe or ballet or something and my teacher got mad b/c my arabasque was not a perfect 90 degree angle. The next thing I knew we were cleaning up the stage and like a big sweeper went across it oh and like beach lounge chairs that you see around pools were on the stage. After the sweeper went across the stage Arsentiy said what do you think I am your housecleaner. and everyone soon after said bravo and then I woke up. W E I R D gotta go to kickboxing so bye guys

pray that Dennis doesn't hit us! [06 Jul 2005|10:51am]
[ mood | irritated ]

Alright lets see yesterday was Sara's birthday so Happy Birthday to Sara skank!!! I went to lunch at a coffee shop called Palladium that's near my house with Rachel and Lacie. It was fun we got to catch up on talk and then we went to David's and I showed Lacie my dress, Rachel already saw it. Lacie started to tear up and cry a little. She said I've known you since pre-school. I couldn't look at her I mean I was cool and not near crying but I was like ahhhh no first w/ my mom and now you crying. Anyway, afterwards we went to the mall to check out Express and Limited b/c they have a HUGE sale like 50% off and $9.99 and $6.99 and $14.99 sales I mean I was in shock and found a great t-shirt but i had to leave b4 I could try a pair of white capris on for $14.99 b/c I was going to get a pedicure w/ my cousin Megan and my mom. Megan came in town on the 4th and left basically right after we got our pedicurs. Mine came out great I got the french tip put on. I mean mom and i figured if we're going to Hawaii we HAVE to have pretty feet. Well, speaking of Hawaii b/c of Dennis Delta might not be flying out on Sunday which is when we fly out BUT it depends on where Denis is going to hit ya know. I hope we can fly out we've been planning this trip for 1 year. I mean we can't just cancel everything! Well, anyway hope for the best and pray we can go. I think that's really all that's going on OH I just got back from getting my dog groomed, Alex. Poor baby I mean b/c I'm away at college I am not here to brush him or brush his teeth and when I ask my mom to what does she do NOTHING. It pisses me off b/c we have this talk all the time I mean he's 11 years old. He's getting up there and I want him to be okay and I mean I brush his teeth 3-5 times a week b/c he can't go under anesthesia again b/c of his age and if they don't brush his teeth they'll rot and fall out and it's just bad. As far as brushing him. He has beautiful fur and a great coat and I don't think it's fair to him to have him shaved to the skin b/c of all the mats in his hair simply b/c I'm not here to brush him. I want to take him to school but he has Racer, our black lab, here that keeps him going. I mean so it's like just a horrible situation for me. Well I'm going to go I have to shower b/c I'm going to Express and Limited w/ my mom soon. bye guys

I wanna sleep with you forever and I wanna die in your arms [29 Jun 2005|01:09pm]
[ mood | gloomy ]

Alright so I'm going to get the gown today!! I'm excited I really am. I was at Carlo's Sun evening through Tuesday at about 1. It felt like I was leaving 10 minutes after I got there! :-( We had fun though. We just chilled Sunday night but Monday we went shopping at Ross, Target, and Old Navy. I got an electric blue v-neck t-shirt and Levi Strauss low rise jeans at Ross, I got khaki flip flops at Target, and I got a maroon v neck t-shirt at Old Navy. Carlo got this great long sleeve shirt that has an Ireland flag on it!! WOOHOO GO IRISH (lol) At Target we also got wedding invitations. It's blank cards lined with a THIN line of pearl. Carlo's mom is going to print them for us and we're going to punch a hole in the top and tie an eggplant ribbon in a bow. This was NOT my idea this is what Carlo wanted to do. I wanted to order cards with a THICK band of eggplant around the card and have nothing else on it besides the writing I mean no ribbon. I dunno I'm still doubting it a little. But, he said his mom will print one up and send it to me or he'll get it when he comes down here on Friday to get Dusty b4 we go to Hawaii b/c Carlo and Shan are the only people i trust to take care of Dusty. They know she's spoiled and needs to run around and needs her cage cleaned every other day and knows that she needs to be held and all. I forgot to say that I showed Mrs. Carol my gown we went to David's and Carlo waited in the car and she LOVED my gown. I also showed her a pict. of the church since Carlo hasn't and being that she's going to be my mom in law I want to make sure that she knows what's going on ya know! anyway I think that's all I'm gunna go okay bye guys

We are going to be going into the city and picking out our cake. It will be Haydels, Swiss Confectionary, or Gambino's. We're going to have our initials on the cake it will be HBC Heather Bentley Carlo the B of course will be bigger. Anyway I think that's all the wedding plans we have. Well, I'm going to go so everyone have a great day.

reception halls suck!!! [16 Jun 2005|10:34am]
[ mood | chipper ]

I suppose I'll give an update since I haven't in a while. Well, for starters I am NOT having the reception at Pat O's on the River. The story there is they had a girl who had a 1st hold on the room for a night wedding in the Grand Terrace but Valerie (the coordinator for Pat O's) said they hadn't talked to her in 3 months and so chances were that she didn't want the room. The next day we called saying we want to know for a fact if the room is available b4 doing any taste tests and seeing the room decorated for a reception. So.... she had 48 hrs. to send in the contract and put down the deposit and yesterday, 24 hrs. after the girl drove in from Lafayette w/ everything! OMG I was crushed I mean I have to start from square 1 again. This time I can't find anything wrong w/ the room like downsides I mean Valerie was great to work w/ and suggested DJ's and florists to me and was on the ball about e-mailing info to me whereas the other place I looked at that didn't work out, City Park, Tara (the coordinator there) was pregnant and not really nice and would've been a pain to work w/ and they wouldn't accomodate to anything. I mean Valerie even said although they work w/ Haydel's for cakes that they would be more than happy to work w/ Swiss if we wanted. GRRRRR It's just so............... frustrating. OH well I'm now looking at the Plimsoll club which is on the 30th story of a building on Canal, it overlooks the river too. We're setting an appt. up there tommorow so.... hopefully that works out ya know. I can instantly tell if that's the room or not. On the other hand I have good news regarding the church. It's booked we just have to send in the deposit and stuff. Also the alter won't be decorated :-( .....but we can bring our own pointsettias w/o going through a florist like pointsettias from Wal-mart or wherever and have them tastefully decorated and place them on the alter. I'm going to have probably 20-30 white pointsettias at the alter so that's a good thing and Liz ,the coordinator at Holy Name, said that would be beautiful and told me the time that we could bring them. I mean I can't set them up but we'll have someone else do it whether it be a parent or family or friend someone will. Also the wedding is at 7pm. Shanda and Sara ya'll can use my hairstylist Mrs. Bonnie (I've known her since b4 I was 3 and I'm sure she'll give a discount) We'll have a hotel which will provide accomodations for everyone that's out of town and we'll prob. get a discount you'll just say I'm here for the McCarthy Bentley wedding and they MAY discount the room. I'm sure Shanda, Sara, Rachel, and Lacie will all stay in 1 room together so it won't be expensive. Everyone has to pay for there rooms but I'm going to put goodies in the rooms of everyone who's out of town like a baggie of pralines, one for everyone and a personal thank you from Carlo and I. Well, I think that's all I have on the wedding. OH yeah I forgot to tell everyone that I'm going to be a bartender along w/ being a server at Lonestar WOOHOO and YEE HAW! anyway have a great day I know I will cuz Carlo's coming in and I haven't seen him in 3 weeks. love you guys! BYE

I guess i'm not all THAT important [12 Jun 2005|09:19pm]
[ mood | pissed off ]

Alright everyone so......... I don't think I updated but I went to look at Holy Name and it's OMG gorgeous!!!!! I got chills and have to say that IS the church but only 1 problem and a BIG one at that!! Well,..... the only night wedding time they might have, I'm not positive, is 7PM which means an 8:30 reception and it'll end at 11:30 more like 12 by the time everyone waves Carlo and I goodbye! So..... that's a NO b/c that's too late a 6pm wedding is perfect so it's either Holy Name or Immaculate Conception

Well, for some reason I'm being a complete jerk to Carlo like not intentionally but I don't know he did something that really bugged me and I asked him to stop and he didn't and I asked again and he didn't and again and he didn't so I got pissed off and hung up. Then he told me he asked Josh, his friend who lives in NY if he wanted to stand in the wedding and he said he asked him if he owned a tux and I told him the guys are renting their tuxes end of discussion and he said I was just going to tell you how I asked him and I apologized and said I'm sorry and to tell me and he said no never mind so I said alright well for some reason I'm snapping at you so I'm going to go I'll talk to you tommorow i love you bye and hung up. Usually Carlo calls back but has he yet and it's been like 3 min so apparentley I wasn't important enough for him to call back and he didn't want to talk to me as bad as he said he did. GRRRRRR I mean I said I was sorry but I mean he should apologize too. I HATE THIS well 1 min I'm happy the next pissed i don't feel like entering in what i wanted to GOOD BYE

joy turned to complete misery! [05 Jun 2005|10:15pm]
[ mood | guilty of being horrible!! ]

God I feel horrible. I mean any time Carlo makes a suggestion it's something i don't like. I mean he thinks the guys should wear the tuxs they have and not rent them to make the lapels remotely look like his. He thinks it's STUPID. Now, it's leaving the reception hall. I mean leaving a reception hall is all about the ambiance and atmosphere. We're looking at city park and with all the Christmas lights lit it will be beautiful and he's saying we can ride around in the limo but it's WAY TOO expensive to rent a limo for that long and then he was like well we can leave in my jeep and I was like OMG b/c you leave in the atmostphere of the wedding in an old car or a carriage or something romantic and classic. So he was like what about the mustang... OMG again b/c it's a classic but it's just like not the atmosphere. I feel horrible for saying no b/c I feel like an awful person since it's his wedding too but he keeps saying all I want is you to be happy but that's not true and it's just HORRIBLE. I just don't know what to do. This is the second time something like this has happened and my 3rd break down and it's not even a year b4 the wedding. I'm just I just don't know what to do b/c i know I upset him but he won't say that I did he just said you never take any of my suggestions and so that makes me out to be the bad guy. I am just so fucking confused I hate it I hate it I hate it

reception and churches and catering OH MY! [05 Jun 2005|08:27pm]
[ mood | complacent ]

Alright so parents gone till Thursday and my mom has called at 6:01, 7:19, and 8:19 to repeat the same exact information over and over and calling for no reason! AHHHHHHhh can I NOT have peace!!! PLEASE you don't talkt to me that much when I'm at home and no you HAVE to call every hour AHHHHHH. Anyway, well I'm cool the house is quiet but I'm in my room and have the house alarmed and stuff and so I'm cool I guess. Anyway, well I think we have a reception hall. how about New Orleans city park when the Celebration in the Oaks is going on. It would be in the Parkview Terrace. go to google and then type in New Orleans city park and look under locations and click on Parkview Terrace. There are pictures and it has a balcony and it will overlook the park b/c it's in a separate building and the room is on the 2nd floor and there are glass windows all around it. WOW I can't even imagine I mean like Erin knows what I'm talking about and stuff and all those of you who have been to the oaks at Christmas. WOW is all I can say if we can get this reception hall I'm going to be in absolute heaven. Hopefully I'll the church and reception hall booked and times nailed down this Thursday! Well, I'll update. luv ya guys bye

it's our wedding you already had yours over 20 yrs. ago!!! [04 Jun 2005|09:37am]
[ mood | annoyed ]

Alright so I told my mom that I wanted Holy Name as the church. Carlo and I decided that I mean we still need to look at St. Francis Xavier on Metairie Rd. as well. Holy Name is the church attached to Loyola's campus. Anyway, well so I tell my mom and she's like well later lets sit down and brainstorm places w/ dad like what's close to it. First off I would like to do that myself w/o them b/c as they said it's my wedding if i want there help there glad to help but only if I want it b/c it is our wedding. Anyway, and then last night when I told her (she said that last thing this morning) she was like well you're going to have to find places close to it and she said well you might have to change the location and I looked at her and said the church is Holy Name and we'll figure reception hall from there we aren't changing unless we decide on St. Francis Xavier. Also, I'm planning on having my little brother be a Jr. groomsman but I'm not telling him till Carlo is in town so we can tell him together. Well, my mom made me feel horrible about not telling him and she looked at me w/ this look like poor baby feels left out of the wedding and told me he thinks he's not important in the wedding or something to that extent like he thinks he's not a part of the wedding. I mean lets make me feel bad b/c I know that feeling and I can't do anything about it b/c Carlo is in Lafayette and works just like I do!!! Anyway, not a good night or morning ahhhhh

get off my case

[ mood | cheerful ]

So........ I HATE my computer well not my computer but my wireless it's totally screwed up and I can't fix it even though I know it's something simple and if Carlo was here he could fix it! In any case I'm off work today woohoo. I got a wedding planner yesterday and am now looking at taking 6hrs of courses at SLU this summer to get them out of the way for next summer even though I don't think the wedding will be next summer even though I kinda wouldn't mind it them but it's too soon ya know. I think we'll have it January 6th I'll update tonight w/ a definite answer on that!! It's the day b4 my parents anniversary and it also changes my student teaching plans. I'm going to live w/ Carlo in Natchitoches and will student teach in Alexandria or Shreveport I'll just have to find a good high school. too bad Caddo Magnet just has a strings program. Oh well, I'll figure something out. In any case. Well, lets hope I can take 6hrs to leave some time open next summer to plan. Anyway, well I'm going to go have a good day everyone
