YES! THANK-YOU GOD! after all the stress, tears, and annoyance we have finally CLOSED on OUR 1st HOME! I am so excited we have been working on this for months as you know and to finally have a place to call our own is amazing! We are actually HOMEOWNERS we have never lived together before so this should be an adjust but I look forward to it. We are going to make some small renovations until after the wedding. As you know I have to move QUICK so we will be living in the house as we paint, install new carpet, etc. Tomorrow we are going to get some new appliances and starting moving stuff. Thanks for all the comments from you guys the other day when I was sad. I really appreciate you support and advice. I know with this comes great responsibility and work but I am so appreciative our blessing. Thanks again for listening well reading! Woo-whoo!!!!!!

This is how I feel right NOW! I am so overwhelmed. It's not even the wedding planning it's just life. Unfortuntately for me I am one of those people who plan everything and I can't help it. I know and totally understand that everything will not go as planned but I like to have what I call a blueprint. But this past week has been so STRESSFUL! School has been extremely difficult and we haven't closed on the house yet! It's so much red tape! Everytime I turn around its something new and it's wearing me thin. I really don't know how much more of this I can handle. I have to be moved by MONDAY of next week. I am exhausted! FI's cousin passed away and he has to go out of town for the funeral. From the looks of things I will not be going with and that sucks but there really is no way around it.
We didn't get to take our engagement pics last week because of a scheduling conflict and now we are scheduled to take them on Sun. I hope that works out if not there goes another problem. I really didn't want to come on here and sound so negative but I just need to vent. I am thankful for all things in my life and I don't take anything for granted but these little things are starting to add up and the pile is high and its really starting to get the best of me. I am going to keep pushing because it will eventually level out. But in the meantime wish me luck and send postive vibes my way. I hope all is well with you guys! I have to go study for an exam tomorrow. Later!

yesterday my man of honor and bm tip went to a new bakery called cupcake for a tasting! their prices are little steep in my opinion so i expected the cupcakes to me great and i was not pleased. they were not awful but not all that great for $3 per cupcake. so that's a no go! here are some pics from our outing.


Today marks our 1 year countdown and I'm scared and happy all at the same time. I excited to start our lives together. Tomorrow is my older brother's wedding. He and his FI got engaged after FI and me and I planned a wedding in like 4 months. There is no way I could have done it but they did. So needless to say I was busy all day preparing for their wedding. I am crystal clear about a few things. An exprienced DOC is a must. The one thing the worries me the most is having this wedding in the middle of the semester and until this semester I was never worried but after this semester I don't know what to expect. But all I can do is be prepared! Wish us luck!

Things 2 Do

Starting this week we are on Fall Break from school so we have a marathon of wedding planning to do while we have a few days off.

  1. Taking 1st set of engagement pics
  2. Meeting a potential DOC
  3. Make decisions about DJ and Baker
  4. Meeting with florist
  5. Hopefully CLOSING on OUR 1st HOME!
  6. Studying!

My brother's wedding is this weekend so I have to go prepare for it. Hope everyone has a great week!


I know I have been an aweful blogger lately. Honestly, I haven't been doing any wedding planning lately. WHY? You may ask b/c of SCHOOL it is SOOOOO time consuming this semester. I have vowed to myself to at least blog once per week. Wedding planning makes me less stress I know that sounds weird but it does. So updating...My FI's 30th B-Day was last Friday so HAPPY B-DAY to HIM. We are getting old but it's a beautiful thing. As you know I was planning this big B-Day party for him well that didn't happen due to financial woes. We are buying a house that we hopefully will close on by the end of the month so that took precedence but he had a good time nonetheless. We all went to a local sports bar for drinks and out to a club afterwards and I got tickets to his favorite collegiate football game and that was how he spent his 30th. He really enjoyed himself. Here are some pics from the night.

My camera has the wrong date programed and I don't know how to change it:(
