We Like To Keep Things Exciting...

I've kind of had a big week so far. Sunday evening really started things off with a BIG BANG. J and I went for a walk at our favorite park with Gemma, and when we sat down to rest at one of the benches, he PROPOSED!!!

Well, I said yes, of course! Then he surprised me by asking if I wanted to get married July 17th when we're down in Texas on our vacation!!! AND that he'd already talked to my family and everything about it and they are coming!!!! SO ~ I'm getting MARRIED IN 3 WEEKS!!!! Can you believe this stuff?! :o)

WOW, I have lots of stuff to get done in the next 3 weeks. Thankfully I have an ANGEL for an MIL and she's doing almost everything for me. I've found dresses for my three bridesmaids (will be fully checked off the list tonight when I pick up the last one and I get the one that I had to have shipped in the mail). I'll do a separate post about trying on wedding dresses - don't try and get a dress off the rack at David's Bridal, they must not like that cause they weren't helpful at all. MIL got a photographer, has organized with a lady she knows that does cakes, and she and the FIL got the preacher that married them to marry us as well! Awww! How cool is that? J already has everything picked out and ready to buy for he and the GMen to wear... so things are moving right along!

There is the issue of the marriage license. The state of MO only takes 20 min to get the license but the ceremony HAS to be in the state of MO. TEXAS however, takes 72 hours to get the marriage license which we don't have. So, I talked to the last at the Brazos County Courthouse today and she said we can come in that Friday before and get the license and have a judge waive the 72 hours waiting period. I asked her if there was any reason why the judge would deny the waiver and she said no...SO, we'll see. J is really stressed about the marriage license cause if that whole waiver of the 72 hour waiting period thing doesn't work out. We're going to be getting married in the courthouse here in good ol' Jackson, County. Fun. And not special in the slightest.

We like to live on the edge, people. Simple is bo-ring.

Here's a list of things I need to do. In three weeks.
*Marriage License
*Find/buy a wedding dress
*Bridal accessories (shoes, jewelry, under-goods)
*J's Ring
*My wedding band
*Cake topper
*Hair Ext (this is a maybe/possibly - damm me for cutting my long hair off 3 months ago)
*Pick music
*Hair style
*Get faux flower bouquets and boutonnieres made by someone who knows what the heck they are doing
*Make up some email invites (very quickly!!)
*Spray Tan - its a MUST

And a hundred other small things...

One thing I do have! MY BLING!!!!!!! (No comments on the wrinkly grandma hands!) pretty :o)

As Seen on Pinterest: Paper Towel Curls

I pinned this and put it under "Must Try" because seriously -- her hair looks SO CUTE and I want my hair to look like this:

And I can TOTALLY do that ya'll. So, I tried it.

Step 1: Start with wet hair. Me post workout shower [disregard the red face -- I look like my blood pressure is that of a 300 lb man in his late 40s really high after a run] with wet hair.

Step 2: Put mousse in hair, tie hair up in paper towel "curlers" rrrrreeeeaaaalllly tight. Sleep uncomfortably on back all night because said paper towel curlers are too tight. Wake up the next morning really excited -- you gonna be FABULOUS dah-ling [or so I thought].
I know I don't look excited but this is at 5:30 in the morning -- this is as excited as it gets.
Step 3: Take "curlers" out of hair and FREAK THE F OUT when you realize the curls are WWW***AAA***YYY too tight... worked a little TOO well. Maybe I need to just run my fingers through it. Yeah, I'll run my fingers …

Jason's Graduation: Part II

Dr. Allen, DC
4/5 of our marriage has been spent working towards this day. To say we are excited would be a great understatement. I can't even put into words how excited/happy/scared/proud/relieved, etc, etc, etc we are. There just are no words. Jason has worked tirelessly towards this goal. Countless hours of studying. Sacrificing time with me and the kids. And all the work he put in advertising and recruiting patients into the clinic. Personal training early mornings and late nights to help makes ends meet.  And I think of all the sacrifice we've made as a family. Living in a townhouse and then a tiny apartment. I've been the primary provider and a mostly single parent during some stages. And a constant cheerleader and standing behind pushing. We've both been pushing uphill for what seems like forever towards this goal. And we've made it. Not to discount his hard work, because he was the one who really accomplished this goal but I like to think we accomplished this …

Ramblings of a Panic Attack

I’m having a panic attack. These stupid meds are killing me. I hate them. Stick with it, stick with it, stick with it. I know it’s the meds. I just have to get through this and relax for a couple weeks. I hate this job. It’s not even that bad it’s just HORRIBLY boring. I don’t want to do this every day. I appreciate learning the process and gaining experience but it’s not what I like to do. I don’t even like accounting that much to begin with but there are aspects I like and I know it. The pay is killing me. I need money. I can’t continue to be completely broke before the first week of the month is over. Collections calls ringing all day. I’m applying to jobs like crazy. I’m trying so hard. I’m just going to keep pushing forward. Keep. Pushing. Forward. I hate that I wanted a life with Jason. That I was too blind to realize what he was. That I was ok with him even from the very beginning when I knew better. Why didn’t I want better things for myself? Seeing him makes me want to vomit.…
