Busy busy busy

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

I've been super busy lately, my brother and neice are coming to town this Saturday (they are from Minnesota), and i'm still trying to get my wedding dates set in stone. Once my dates are set I can start creating the invitations. This process is actually fun, I have a little under a year to plan this, and its so simple so its really not too much coordination (no bridesmaids, no rehersal stuff, no catering, its literally in a hotel room with our family). I'm glad I have next week to get my mind off it, i've been checking my email constantly to see if the wedding coordinator has booked my dates, and I need something to distract me.
I'm wicked excited about my brother and neice coming, she's 3, and my brother hasnt been back here in over 2 years. We are so close, it should be a fun trip!!

  


Changes in wedding plans

Friday, July 11, 2014

I'm really hoping my blogs wont be all about wedding stuff... I dont wanna be devoured in wedding stuff and thats all I talk about. However, this blog IS about more wedding stuff lol
ANYWAYS
My fiance and I decided to have a wedding just us, no guests. However now we are thinking about having just our immediate family. I think it would be nice... the reason why I didnt want to before (and i'm still fearing it now) is because of all the planning/coordinating/expense/ trying to please everyone which I know I wont be able to. I dont want our guests to think we are spending every second in Vegas with them, I dont know the etiquite for who pays for what (we dont expect anyone to pay for our wedding, BUT I dont expect to pay for anyones expenses here either such as flight/hotel...).
I am going to talk it over with my fiance this weekend before we send over forms to our wedding coordinator. Looks like we might have some guests! It will be nice to have my parents and his parents there, I just dont want my mom to take over and say I need to wear this and that, and jewels and blah blah blah

    My Sweet - you plan your wedding to please YOU and YOUR FIANCE! Obviously, things like food allergies will need to be taken into account, but apart from that ....... This is YOUR day, not theirs, and your are SHARING YOUR DAY with them!!!

Hugs

Wedding disappointments

Tuesday, July 08, 2014

I told my parents and best friends yesterday that my fiance and I have decided to have our wedding in Vegas next year, just the two of us. I knew not everyone would approve, but at the end of the day its my decision, and I know I cant please everyone. My two best friends were upset, but one of them said he would take me dress shopping before my big day which was very sweet of him. My other friend (who lives on the other side of the country) is still sad... she said she cant help me with anything because 1- she lives so far away, and 2- since its just us two it cuts out alot of things a maid of honor would do. I dont blame her for being upset, but its upsetting to me that she cant be happy for my decision. I'm not a fan of tradition, I dont like the spotlight or stress of planning, and I cant justify spending so much money on a party. I know she will come around eventually, but its hard for me to get excited about my day when she is so disappointed in me.
My family on the other hand, my parents were ok with it... I thought. Then my mom last night said she wants my fiance and I to go to India, for a day... i'm like uhhh thats not realistic. Thats an 18 hour flight one way to stay there for a day? I'm not ready to see my family there, and I'm not ready for them to meet my fiance. I am not goign to put him in a position that is uncomfortable. Ofcourse my mom got upset and said I should do what is best for me, and she will leave it at that. Long story short, what I got from my conversation with her was, 'Either go to India with us, or do things without us'.
I want my 2 best friends and my family (parents and brother) to be part of my day, but in a different way. Even if that means a dinner after I get married, or sending them a nice wedding favor after. I will deffinitely be doing someting like that, but right now everyone seems to be in shock that i'm not having a traditional wedding. Its kinda hard to be excited and motivated when I dont feel any support =/

    Thanks. I think they are more ok with it than my friend. My parents are super happy we finally set a date, even if they will not be there they are happy we are taking that next step in life. I might have a dinner or something with my family and my fiances family after the wedding just so they feel involved in some way.
Regardless of how everyone feels, I am getting excited =)

Monday back to work

Monday, July 07, 2014

Its the Monday back from a 3 day holiday weekend, didnt do too much, just hung out around the house and went to the animal shelter on Saturday mornings like usual. My fiance and I cleaned up a bit around the house yesterday. I was sooo restless last night barely got any rest, im super tired today *yawn* I'm hoping I can last the rest of the day! I dont know if because of my sleeping habits this weekend but today all I want to do is EAT!!! And I dont really mind cuz its also my TOM, so this usually lasts about a day and then i'm good to go. I woke up at 3 this morning and made myself an egg salad sandwich (it was so yummy)...

July 2nd

Wednesday, July 02, 2014

I figure its easier to just write the date as the title instead of Day X, i'l probably be missing some days here and there... ANYWAYS!
Last night I had Buffalo Wild Wings, leftovers. I chopped up the chicken and mixed it in with a salad, it came out really good! Glad I didnt just chow down on the chicken, they are very high in calories, but oh so delicious. I brought the left over salad for lunch today, having raisin bran again for breakfast. I find that I do ok through out the day, but its at night that I get the munchies and eat alot. I must admit however I monitor my water much better throughout the day, and when I get home I dont drink as much water

A couple days ago my fiance and I found out our rent is increasing again =( Not by much, but its still annoying. We decided to save up and look into buying a house in a couple years or so. That being said, I usually splurge on my groceries, trying to get healthier foods rather than the bargain 'unhealthy' choices. I need to find that balance now if i'm trying to save

    Thats a good point TISH, I know frozen veggies you can get for cheap, and they last a while so you dont have to worry about using it all up fast. Rotisery Chicken too, can last atleast a couple days

  I was about to dig through the pantry last night before bed, and complaining to my fiancÚ that I was starving lol. I opted for a cough drop I found in my bedside table! I've been splurging way too much at the grocery store & it's time to be frugal again - so fresh veggies here I come! cheap. Maybe a whole chkn and bake it? cheaper than individual pkgs...
