Where did September go???

I CANNOT believe that it's going to be October next week. Seriously, it feels like Alison and Rob were just here. To be honest, it feels like Bryan was just here, and that was 2 months ago. CRAZY!

Spring has arrived in Brisbane! The sun is out. It's warming up and the skirts and tank tops are seeing the light of day! :) It's weird huh? I was just reading Holly's blog and she was beautifully describing the essence of Fall.... and it made me jealous. But then I saw the weather forecast for SoCal for the week.... 100??? And then I didn't feel so jealous anymore. :) Just don't be asking me how things are going in Brisbane in late November/early December when the humidity skyrockets and we're pushing the high 30s (celsius).

It is currently 1am (and now Mom is shaking her head at her computer). I worked tonight and drank a little too much caffeine, so I'm waiting for it to wear off. Still not tired though. Might have to force myself to sleep soon. :)

The girls (my honorary Australian bridesmaids - Sharon, Esther and Sally) and I went to try on some more wedding dresses today!!! :) It was soooo much fun. I can't wait to come home and try on dresses that I'll actually be able to think about buying!! And to do it with my US bridesmaids!!! The browsing outing didn't really do me much good though. If anything it only further confused me as far as what I'm hoping for in "the" dress. I tried on 10 dresses today, two of which I reeeeally loved. The only problem was that the two that I reeeeally loved were... well... they were reeeeally different. Nothing in common what-so-ever actually. So how do I choose?? How do I know what I want? When what I think I want one minute is something completely different than what I think I want the next minute?? (Are you confused yet? Because I most certainly am.) So... the search continues.

More in Andie's Australian news:

I was walking through Big-W last week. What's Big-W? Well... think Walmart... they're EXACTLY the same. Anyways... walking through Big-W/Walmart when I stumbled upon a newly altered aisle...

So Christmas is on it's way!!! :)

No other real news.
No real progress on the paper. :(
The pressure's starting to take its toll though.

There's a light at the end of the tunnel that's called home... in 2 and a half months. But there's this huge rock wall blocking the way that's called my paper.

Can't go over it. Can't go under it. Oh no! I've got to go through it!

I think I should go to bed now....


love you all!!
