Still The Same

I’ve been married for 27 hours and I still feel the same, lol. (See Grapevine song of same name.)

We had a nice little ceremony and lots of hugs and kisses, yay! We’re now onto getting ready for the Mayan ceremony in Mexico and then a heck of a lot of relaxing with a little traveling and more relaxing mixed in between.

I’m starting to get excited to go to Mexico. I won’t ramble. See you tomorrow. 🙂

10, X, Ten

Ten is just a crazy number. Sometimes it’s perfection. Ten fingers, ten toes, she’s a 10. It’s also the date that we leave for Mexico. It isn’t really ten days until the wedding though. Unless you count today also, then I guess it works.

I went and picked up my dress yesterday and I am happy with how it looks once it’s on. There might be one thing that I would’ve changed, but it’s so small that I’m probably the only one that would ever even notice it. Let it slide. Woosa.

Today, after purchasing a new keyboard…for my laptop…I await the arrival of the Sears delivery men. Since my efforts in fixing the dryer were thwarted by a basic lack of knowledge and the fear of electrocution, we broke down after about four days and ordered a new washer and dryer. One trip to the laundromat was really more than enough for me. It isn’t terrible. I can go and read, but it’s just kind of a pain. Lazy American!

Dear self: those favors really aren’t going to put themselves together so you might wanna get on that also.

I was asked very recently if I was excited for the wedding/Cancun/moving. Oddly enough, not yet. Somewhere along the line, I think I broke my excited bone (hahahaha, yeah, add your own joke here) and it never got repaired. Maybe it’s some sort of self-defense mechanism. If I’m not excited, I won’t be let down when I actually get to do things. Maybe I’m just a little bit nutty. Yeah, probably that. I think that the last time I was excited about an event was in January when we went to the Steelers game.

I’m considering heading over to Tumblr for my various rants. Apparently it’s easier to do music and photos there. But, seeing as I have a hard time just blogging daily, I don’t know. Although, it might be that much easier to do Tumblr. We’ll see.

Thanks for putting up with this ridiculous brain emptying as I work on actually preparing myself to write something meaningful. Hang in there! I’ll get interesting yet!

Countdown, now with Mexico!

No, not Ron.

Did you miss me yesterday? Psh, now, don’t tell fibs to spare my feelings. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

The good Reverend MiamiShyner is not in attendance today but she wishes you all a ROCO Friday nonetheless.

As we all may know, the countdown now stands at 20 days until I try to run this 5K. I have faith that I can do it. I’m training and I can do the distance. I’m just hoping that it’s not excessively hot/cold/windy that morning.

Even though formerly Hurricane Ida, currently TD Ida and probably Hurricane Ida again in a few days is a ways away from us, we’re still feeling some of her effects, namely wind. Due to the wind, I was surprised to have come in at under 28 minutes this morning. Not super quick by any means, but way better than I ever imagined I would be when I started the program 8 weeks ago.

You should stop reading here if you do not want to read my sappy relationship stuff.

Who has so many countdowns going on at once? No one in their right mind which means me. 😀

  • Turkey Trot in 20 days
  • Vacation in 48 days
  • Graduation in 92 days
  • And the latest addition to the list, 218 days until the wedding

As some of you may have known, Lovey and I had plans to make it official in the early summer of next year. I was super excited and ran through several location options before deciding on Vegas. Then I changed my mind. I’m a chick, I’m allowed.

Vegas seemed cool but it was also a little bit of a hassle. I’m not all for the details, I just want the end event to be nice (and I don’t want to hire a wedding planner). Vegas fell by the wayside. I found a place closer to home. Literally 5 minutes away from our house. It was beautiful. It was perfect. It was…..$20K! WTF man. For one day! I am not ballin’ like that.

At that time, I basically scrapped all wedding plans. I am just stubborn like that. I want it all or I don’t want anything. I’m pretty sure that my mom was bummed about it but I was done. I figured that the money I was saving for a wedding could be used for several other things. I was a little sad but I’ve really never been the one for tradition.

Fast forward to yesterday. Whilst perusing the internet, I came across something that just blew my mind. I could have a ceremony that was far from traditional in a place that was far from home for a price that was far under the place that I had been so excited about. SCORE!

So now, it’s back on. Mom’s excited. Lovey’s excited. Kiddo’s excited (this will be her first time out of the country). I’m excited. I get to have a beautiful beach ceremony in the country I love most right under our own. Seriously, I love it so much that I feel like it’s like going home. I get to spend 9 days being treated like a princess and I can’t wait.

Now, to search for that perfect dres….remember, buck tradition!

Have a great weekend, folks! There’s football to be watched. Let’s go STEELERS!
