9/14/14

Holy crap. I'm getting married. I'm going to be a wife. So weird. It's like it's all finally sinking in.

*cue happy dance*

This is all so strange to me. Happily Ever After wasn't in the stars for me. I was told I was trash & unlovable. I had gotten to a point I was ok with the idea that I was going to be alone. I was content with it being just BMad & me.

Then comes along Thomas...

I didn't know this goofy guy from Ohio was everything I could've asked for.

Everything I didn't know I needed.

(Crap, this blog is going to make me cry.)

He makes me crazy & he makes me laugh.

He loves B like he's been here since her 1st breath. She loves him. They're absolutely partners in crime. Mischievous; those two.

He just fits. He did from the beginning. We knew it felt right. I fought it. He jumped in head first & then dragged me in with him.

Here we are :)

Happy is a weird place for me, but I like it.

We Have a Date!

There has now been a giant weight lifted off of my chest! We have a venue & a date.  We still have almost 5 months & everything is pretty much done! I'm so excited!

Btw Weddingwire.com is fabulous! I started with TheKnot.com, but ww is more user friendly.

All the pieces are falling into place ♡

Flowers

Every woman loves flowers & loves to get them.

That being said I've never received flowers as often as I get them from Thomas.

Part of the reason I knew he was a keeper; he's never bought me just plain, boring, easy roses.

He buys me flowers just because.

He even brings them to work sometimes ♡

Flowers - A.D.D.

Which leads me to wedding flowers...

Decisions, decisions

Orchids, lilies, & ....

This is why I need a florist's help! I'm so indecisive!

Look up my friend's flower shop!

Wedding Things

We have an officiant, a photographer, a wedding party, a florist, & we've narrowed our search to 2 venues.

We did 10 hrs of wedding stuff yesterday with a 2 yro in tow!

We were exhausted!

I need to go dress shopping asap. We already know what the groomsman & the bridesmaids are wearing.

If only any of my bridesmaids had the same off days as I do!

We'll have a venue & date by Wednesday & then I can get my invitations ordered & mailied.

I'll be glad when all that's left are the I Do's :)~

I should be cleaning today to make up for yesterday, instead BMad & I are cuddling & watching an Ice Age Marathon ♡

Wedding Planning!

Now I know why people hire wedding planners...

I feel like 2 days a week with a toddler in tow isn't enough time to tour all the venues.
Our original venue ended up not working out. Still have more touring to do (Villa St. Claire & Hummingbird House.

I'm a little obsessed with Hummingbird House.. I couldn't have dreamt up a more perfect setting to marry my best friend.

Although, we're still looking.

It's really neat to see all the pictures in my head coming together to make the big picture.

As stressed out as I am, I'm incredibly giddy & excited. All my dreams are coming true ♡

On a side note: I will have the prettiest flower girl ever! 

Can't wait to see B in her dress!

Toddlers Are Gross

You know, other moms warn you about these things...

I have a very well behaved child. She very much has mommy's clean OCD. She doesn't like to be dirty, she doesn't like clutter, & she doesn't like her stuff dirty.

This is why today's events perplex me...

Today was my day off & hubby-to-be let me sleep in (this never! happens), but he came barreling in the bedroom frantic at 1030 this morning saying he "needed my help". Of course, half asleep, this alarms me. I walk into my daughter's bathroom to see her half naked & covered in her own poop. (Insert annoyed face here)

She was in her room playing quietly, as she typically does after breakfast, & pooped in her pull up. Not something that ever really happens. She's really good about telling someone she has to potty. I guess it was uncomfortable so she either took her pullup off & then played in her poop or she dug it out. Either way, there was my toddler covered in poo & it was all in her carpet.

So glad I bought that Rainbow Cleaning System lol

After cleaning her, the bedroom, the bathroom, the tub, vacuuming, & shampooing the carpet in her room I'm still incredibly grossed out & perplexed.

Why would a little girl as dainty & clean as my pretty little girl decide to play in poo?

She's 2.

That's it?! Oy vey. They keep telling me 3 is worse.

Never a dull day in this household lol

More Reasons Why I'm Crazy About This Man

What a week this has been already! Shave down season is only just beginning & my grooming tools are all in desperate need of sharpening. It's been a madhouse at work & I'm beat. On top of all of that it's almost time to move again!

I came home to a spotless house & flowers just because. Also, hubby-to-be is cooking dinner ♡

I really couldn't ask for a better partner :)

I really can't wait to marry him. (So gross w/ all that cheesyness, I know lol)
