I'm married!!!!!!

Well, I've pretty much sucked with keeping up and writing often. 

Things have been a blur the past 3 weeks or so. 

The wedding was perfectly imperfect! I mean, our DJ forgot to play "Here comes the bride"...yeah I'm not kidding. I forgot to put on my garter and my new husband and I had to go hide and throw it on before the reception. Ppl left before 9pm and we had a ton of alcohol left over. My dress strap broke on one side and I had to have him cut them off lol I had nice lopsided boobs but didn't care. My shawl wouldn't stay on so I tossed it to my sister as I walked to the alter. 
It was little non important things that I had stressed over that just didn't matter once I saw him standing there waiting for me. 
We flew out to Vegas at 5am the next morning and had an amazing week on our honeymoon!
It has all been amazing. I can't even explain. I'm still surprised when he calls me his wife and I catch myself calling him Fiance when he is now so much more. 
It's the same but not. It's hard to explain. I mean we still came back to the home we already had and went to the jobs we already had but not only did my last name change, I feel whole inside. I walk around with a comfort in my heart knowing that he will be with me until the day I die. 
I'll come back with a more in depth entry with some pictures in case anyone wants to see them once I have them . 

Thank you to those that have read my little blog and thank you to those that have offered messages of support. 
It was a long and stressful road but man was it worth it!

Week before..holy crap!

Yep, that's right 8 days from today and I will be getting married!

I simply can NOT wait. I am so very excited!
But, I'm mostly excited to have it over with lol 
I know, I know, it's such an amazing time and don't wish it away blah blah frickin blah....I'm tired of nonstop stress and just want to be married. 
That's all ,just want to be a married woman and be in Vegas on our honeymoon. 

Everything is coming together. I mean it's really all together. Just waiting on the day. 
I figured out my "Day of" schedule and timeline. That was a relief. Still trying to figure out who is staying at home and who has to find somewhere else to stay the night before since we aren't seeing each other until ceremony time after the rehearsal. That's the most stress we have. 

I'm considering ourselves pretty lucky and thank my wonderful weddingbee girls and all my friends for all their help and planning ideas. There is now way I would be done and just kinda hanging out without them. 

So, with that, I say

23 days and counting...

Yep, that's all the longer until I say my I DO's!!! 

I'm pretty pumped to say the least. Things have finally settled down and come together. 
This morning I went to Hobby Lobby before work ( could have stayed all day!) and got the bridesmaids gifts, cake topper, unity candle, tapper candles, purple flower petals and pretty gem stickers to decorate the boring white unity candle!! I was only in there for 15 minutes and found EVERYTHING I had been meaning to get!!

I feel very relieved and accomplished lol 

I also stopped by the post office before heading towards work and mailed off my bridal shower thank you's!  I think having them received within 2 weeks of my shower is good time!

I also picked up my dress last weekend and it looks amazing!! It had to be taken in 4 inches ( yay me) and we added straps at the last minute ( mommas got some biggens) and she made me a shawl that I love!!!

We are going to get our marriage license tomorrow morning before work so we can give it to the preacher this weekend when he have our little meeting with him to go over the ceremony and such. 

The travel agent called and said that all of our airline and hotel reservation papers are complete for the honeymoon so all we have to do is pick those up.

We ordered our cake this week.

I mean we have been wedding planning machines in the past couple weeks!!! I'm super proud of us! We are going to be able to just relax the closer we get to the day of the wedding and not have to freak out!! So, that's all I've got for now!!!!

Still so stressed sometimes...

Hello again...I'm not good about writing super often....

So, I am almost 2 months out from the wedding and I'm kinda going nuts with so much to still figure out. I have most of the invites done and just have to take a completed one to the post office to get weighed and then assemble them and send them out in 2 weeks. I have to finish the favors, get all the stuff for the guys bought/ordered and off my list, figure out all the songs for the DJ, and all kinds of other stuff I can't think of right now.

On top of that, my oldest daughter just started a new school yesterday (we moved at the beginning of summer) so I was so worried about how scared she would be and how she would get along since she's only in 2nd grade. But, luckily she has done wonderful! She said she loves it and couldn't wait to go back.

I'm still fighting with myself on my weightloss goals. I did really well and lost my 5% per Weight Watchers and then got lazy again lol I haven't really put anything back on but I can tell the difference in how I feel with what I'm eating. I'm way more bloated when I'm not paying attention to what I'm eating. So, I'm feeling like crap lately.

And then there is other stress here and there. But, all in all, it's nothing I can't handle just not too excited about much at the moment other then getting this wedding planning done so I can enjoy it!

Oh to the wedding planning stress....GO AWAY!

Hey there!
Yep, this one is going to be about my continued wedding planning stress....I'm F'ing over it!
I obviously can't go into great and specific detail but it's seriosuly one thing after another.
  • Started with things I've ordered coming in wrong
  • then the budget I had for flowers wasn't enough to get everything I wanted and I'm worried it won't be enough
  • We had to refinance a loan to get what we thought would be enough money to finish paying for the wedding--it isn't
  • I've changed my mind 3 times on centerpieces
  • Need more money for other things so we cut the cake out of the budget and am now doing cupcakes the night before my wedding
And all we flippin want to do it get married. That's it. Nothing else matters to us. Had we known that even our little under $2,000 wedding was going to be this much of a pain in the ass we would have just gotten married in Vegas while we are there on our honeymoon.
So, yeah, not that interesting of a post but I'm stressed to the max and needed to let it all out! Thanks for listening.

Hey Hey It's my first Blog Post!

Well, hello there!
So, a little bit about me, I'm a mommy of two girl’s ages 8yr and 4yrs. I've been engaged to my love since December of 2010. We are getting married Nov 5, 2011.
I never thought I'd be this happy. I really really didn't.
It's been a long time coming that's for sure.
I am only 3 weeks shy of 29yrs old and have been married once and engaged once in between my first marriage and now.

I have dealt with moving away from home at 19yrs old, 8hrs away from my family and everything I knew, to get to be with my then husband on his Navy Base.
To then within 1 week of moving finding out we were pregnant.
By the time our daughter was 14months old I was all of a sudden a single mom with no income or place to go.
My whole life changed in a matter of a week once my then husband decided he wasn't happy anymore. It got a lot more complicated but that's in the past and we were young and dumb to be honest.
Now, 10yrs later, we are friends and he has remarried and his wife is a step mom to my kids. She and I have developed a friendship and I'm grateful everyday for how things turned out.

Now, skip to 2years after my first marriage went into the shitter and enter next soon to be ex....
I met this douche bag ( he will be referred to as DB) and he seemed great! I was happy, someone was telling me I was pretty and all seemed just swell....
Well, within 2months of knowing him I got pregnant. I decided it was going to be great and all things would work out this time. So, we moved in together after knowing each other 4months. (Yeah I know right?) We managed to live together for 2 years. Then, I found out he was hooking up with a chick he worked with (I know bad luck with ppl they work with) He denied it, I called him out. Took MY daughters and left.
That was that.

Well, skip now to 2 years after that mess, and we get to last May. When I met the most amazing man of my life. I couldn't have asked for a better partner. We have been inseparable since the day we met. I mean really, we haven't spent longer than 24hrs apart since the day we met. My ex-husband likes him, my daughters love him, my family loves him, and he just fits right in. I mean it's amazing. Like he was supposed to be there all along.
We just moved into a nice big duplex with our girls and it's been wonderful.
I'm planning for the wedding like a crazy person but I love it. I got a new and better job a year ago so that has helped tremendously.
I guess after all that rambling you are caught up on my history ( or as much as I'm gonna tell you hehe) and we can carry on with daily posts about whatever the hell it is I'm thinking about that day!!!
Hope you enjoy and if anyone is actually reading this please feel free to comment!!
