We are sitting in an internet cafe in Rome right now so this will be a very short post. Our wedding day was amazing and though few things went as planned almost everyone said it was the best wedding they had ever attended. I plan on journelling everything in my spare moments and writing the worlds longest post when we return to the states. Today we went to the Sistine Chapel and it was really mind blowing seeing the works we had seen our whole lifes in person. We probally wouldn't have made it to the Vatican at all if it wasn't for my insomnia. I woke us up at 5 and we decided to get up and get ready. We wallked to the Vatican from our hotel and were about 60 people back in line at 6:45. The museum opened at 8:45 and we found out that it was closed tomorrow. So I guess for once it paid off that I couldn't sleep. I have so much more to say but since we are paying by the minute I shall leave saying I miss you all and will catch up with you when we return.

Ok so I was sitting at my computer reading blogs, as I am want to do, and my cell phone rang. I answered the call and it was a voice I was certainly not expecting. My old boss that took back my raise after she had promised it and then never told me she took it back. She had the nerve to be calling me to ask me to work for her for a week. Funny but I wouldn't work for her under the worst of situations but since I fly out this Saturday, as in two days I don't think I will be able to work for her. Wow though she has some balls to think I would even consider it. She did however make my day, I love that she is crawling back to me. You all should be very proud of me though, I told her no I was getting married next Sunday, I did not tell her to F herself or any of the other things the demon on my shoulder told me to say, I was however very cold and straight forward, I doubt she will be calling me again.

Props to good customer service

I just called Cingular my cell phone provider to get some help about using my phone while I am in Italy. Really what I wanted was not an international plan but for them to unlock my phone so I can use a prepaid calling sim chip on my phone. I expected to have to fight for it and was prepared for a battle. I thought they would try and force me into the international calling plan that quite frankly is way to expensive. So I called and the customer service rep was very nice and didn't try to force the international plan at all. I asked her to unlock my phone and she said no problem. She put in the request and within 5 days I should get the code to unlock the phone. I was a little dumbfounded, I can't remember the last time I called a company and got the results I wanted without pressuring them to do so. Due to this I will say way to go Cingular, I shall recommend you highly.

In other news the wedding is now less than two weeks away. Actually two weeks from today I will be on a plane to Italy. Life is pretty good. Saturday my passport came. I am not sure how it is possible but the picture is worse than my drivers license. It is pretty frightening. I hope they don't look at it and declare me a security risk due to toxic ugliness. I guess we will see. This morning I started to clean out my closet. I threw away all my old shoes and now my shoe collection is organized and easy to find the shoe I am looking for. This will be nice. I also went through my closet and pulled out old clothes I no longer wear. Later today I will be taking several garbage bags of clothes to Good Will. I guess that means I could be walking down the street and see people wearing my clothes. That is kind of weird. This is my last week home before the wedding, I fly to Napa on Saturday and from then on it will be all wedding stuff to prepare for the big event on Sunday the 21st. I can't believe in two weeks I am going to be a Mrs.

I have more that I should tell you about like my all day spa day saturday while Brad had his bachelor party but I really don't feel like typing it up right now. So I shall type more later but for now see ya.

sites from vegas

Here are some of the things we saw while in vegas. Of course these pictures were all taken on a previous trip to vegas but since I din't take out my camera much you get to see pictures I already had in my library. No trip to Vegas is complete until you have been in M&M World so you better believe I made us stop in.

Wedding countdown

The first three pictures are of Brad and I on the day we got our marriage license. We decided to play hookie after we were done at the courthouse and went to Downtown Disney and goofed off. The first picture is me trying on a cowboy hat and honestly I am only posting it because I think my boobs look amazing in this picture and I thought you should all have a little treat. The next picture is Brad and I kissing in the waterfall caves at the Disneyland Hotel. The hotel has great grounds and if you are ever in the area I recommend exploring the hotel. The waterfall caves were empty and it made for a nice hideaway on such a romantic day. The next picture is of Brad and my drink at the Rainforest Cafe. Both were very good to me. The last picture is of my 2 maids of honor at my bachelorette party, we were at the piano bar at the New York New York casino. We had a lot of fun there. Unfortunately that is one of the only pictures I thought to take all weekend. I guess I can't get in trouble for anything if I take no evidense.
