4 Days!

Hi Everyone!

I hope you had a great Christmas! I did all 6 of them! lol I had one w/ Joey's mom, my mom, my grandma, Joey's step family, Joey's dad side in Austin, then I will have one on the 1st with my dad!! :)

I had a nice Christmas! Got nice things and had fun with the people we were with :) My mom has already taken down the Christmas tree! She did that before we got back this past Sunday!!

I think I might buy a Wii...I know a random message, but after playing one twice with a few days of each other, I have realized how much I like playing it! Rachel (Joey's sister) got the Wii Fit for Christmas. It was so much fun to play!! Then when we went to Austin we played Wii Sports, that was fun too! It is great when you have people over! I don't know, I will think about it a lil more and wait for a while...dropping $250 right now is a lil crazy, so I think I'm going to wait for a while :)

So... we are 4 days away!!! I can't believe it! lol Tonight when Joey got off of work we went to go exchange his ring...yes his ring has already come in!! :D So he will have the real one for the ceremony!! :) That makes me really happy! Then we went to Men's Warehouse to get Joey some black pants, a white shirt and to find ties. We found some ties, but we had to go to Macy's to get Joey's tie. He is going to wear a dark purple tie while the others wear silver :)

We have picked out the songs for the rest of the ceremony :) I cried but that's not surprising :)
I have been packing and trying to move more stuff over to Joey's, but it is kinda hard since I haven't unpacked the other stuff I have already brought over! It will all get done in time though!

Well I haven't gotten nervous about the getting married part; the only thing that makes me nervous is the people...having to go around and talk to people afterwards. And the stuff getting done before is making me a lil nervous, other than that I am fine!
Honestly it still seems surreal! lol I know that must sound crazy, but that's how it is! I have my dress in my room and yet it still feels that way! I always wanted this and now it is here and it is so exciting and just so awesome! I think it might seem that way since I just don't have time to just think about it, I am always thinking about what needs to be done and such. But every-time I heard the song that I am going to walk to I cried...when we listened to the songs for the rest of the ceremony I cried! So when I do just stop I get very emotional! :) Just some random stuff about my feelings, since I am sure people wonder how the bride feels a few days before!

Well I'm sure this is a long post, so...
Have a great day!

Busy Bee

Hi Everyone! :)

Since my last post I have been a busy little bee! I have been cleaning and organizing Joey's apartment so I can move in more of my stuff! I finished putting up the gifts we have already received. I did make a cake, and frosted it and everything! :) Just because I felt like it! lol The organizing is a slow process and I find other things to do a lot instead of doing that, so it's taking a little longer.

Wedding Preparations:
(what we have completed since the last post)
- Bought wedding rings
Joey's is taking 2 months to come in since the store didn't have his size, so we just got a regular band for the ceremony and we will trade them when his comes in. We did that Sunday.
- Got our marriage license
That was really exciting! We got that today!
- I went to go get my dress
However, it was still too long and too big on the I am picking it up tomorrow at 1pm. I was disappointed that I didn't get to take it home this past Friday, but I do not want to trip over my dress either! When I tried it on I could see myself just eating the floor in front of everyone! lol
- Bought unity candle, candle holder, guest book, pen, hanky for me (since I know I will cry!), and  a garter.
We are not doing the throwing of the garter or bouquet. The last weddings we went to no one was excited about it and so I feel that it is silly to do so. So I am just wearing a garter just because...I guess to show it to my daughter one day...well it makes since to me :)
- Found the song for coming down the aisle
Joey found the was one that was used in a short film someone had made. It is really beautiful. Joey was awesome and edited it (it had words- not English- and was a lil long).  Every time he played it I started to cry! :) I would have an "emotional moment" as Jeff would call it :) lol (Just in case you do not know who Jeff is, he is our pastor and is doing the ceremony)

The only things we have left to do is groomsmen ties, get Joey some black pants, find a lace table runner for the unity candle table, and pick out the rest of the songs for the wedding.

It is crazy how close it is! I have been wanting this for so long and now it is here! It sometimes seems surreal, then I realize that this is real :D I am so happy and excited! We received our cruise info. We also looked at the day excursions to do on the cruise! It is going to be fun!

I know I talk a lot about the wedding and the details, but I figure it is interesting for others to read or read later, and I want to be able to look back and read everything that went on!

It is insane that Christmas is already here! It is this Thursday! I want to enjoy it, I do not want it to be like getting through it to the wedding! Sometimes I just need to slow down. I have already bought presents...I did that with the money I had from Carter's. It is not much this year, but I don't have a job and that is not the real meaning of Christmas anyways!

Well for all the hundreds of ppl that read my blog...
Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year! :D

I hope you have a great day!

The Semester is OVER!!

Hi :)
I had my last final on scariest one, an oral final! I am SOO happy that finals and this semester is over with! It was so hard to try and concentrate with the upcoming wedding and everything. I am just so happy that its over! I will never have to plan a wedding and do school at the same time ever again! lol

Here is the list of stuff I still need to do...just in case anyone cares :)

Wedding Update:
- go make sure the alterations are good Dec. 19th
- get marriage license!
- get wedding rings
- get unity candle
- try and finalize the count of ppl, but most haven't RSVPed yet
- move in in the 2 weeks I have!
- pick out songs for the ceremony
- check on flower status
- check on bridesmaids dress status
-remind Joey to get gifts for the groomsmen
- etc.

I know there are prob. more things to do, I just can't remember right now :) Joey's mom was great and checked into the rehearsal dinner stuff for me and she is going to send out invitations, which I am so happy that she took that on herself!

Sadly we weren't able to do engagement pictures, but we will have ones from the wedding, and when we go and visit married ppl's houses that is all the pictures they have up of the both of them. So it won't be that big of a deal.

It is getting closer and closer! Which is exciting but I feel like there is a lot of little details to work out. But I know everything will be worked out :) The count for the wedding is about 82 right now. I thought I would include that, so when I am reading this later it would amuse me lol

Well not much else is going on. I cleaned and organized Joey's apartment a little today...getting it ready for all my stuff lol I really don't mind cleaning. Which I know years later I will see that statement and think something was wrong with me lol

Well that is all right now :) Have a great day!
