I'm back...finally!!

Well, hello everyone

We are home and married and trying to get settled

You should see our apartment!! 

It's all sort of cluttered

I told my co-worker the other day that there is something to be said about the people that get married younger, because they don't have quite as many years to accumulate things as those of us who get married a little older do




The Man?


Hmmm...I'll have to think of a name for him

Anyway, Husband (unless I think of something else) doesn't have a ton of stuff

It's me that's the problem in that area

A lot of books, a lot of movies, a lot, a lot, a lot

And while he has a decent sized apartment, I don't know that it's big enough to hold all of my stuff

Plus all of the stuff we got for our wedding

Here, why don't I just show you

(the picture above? this looks waaaay worse now)

Yeah...some of this looks better, but some of it doesn't

It actually looks worse

But we've been enjoying married life

Besides the fact that I now loathe Husband's schedule even more

It makes getting up in the morning really hard

I have to get up at around 6:45 and he usually doesn't get to bed until around 6:30 which only leaves us about 15 minutes

The weekends are better because he comes to bed around 4:00 instead of 6:30, but it still just stinks

I really hope he can change his schedule soon

Other than that I really have no complaints

Oh, and that my blog reader number says 633 currently

I better get on that soon

So, I don't have many pictures of the wedding on my laptop to show you, but I do have a few of my bridals

So I will show you some of those and then show you the rest one of these days when I'm home

the one above just makes me laugh because I look soooo miserable

I think I was already tired of getting my picture taken lol

Not a ton, but a few

I'll add more later

I hope you're all doing well

I'll get around to checking up on your blogs soon

But I'm still trying to settle my new life, so don't expect a lot of activity on my part yet

I do have a new name for the blog, I think

I'll share in a few days if I can't think of anything else I like

I am taking offers of big burly men to help move stuff over

So if any of you want to share, just let me know!!

If not, I'll be drowning in stuff in my new apartment

I'll send out an sos if I get permanently stuck

A Post From The Girl Who Isn't Really Here

Hi World!
Our girl Baby Sister texted me all the way from Hawaii 
(while I'm stuck here with these music lessons and I hate them!  Name that movie.)
and asked me to finish this post for her since she's otherwise occupied.

Silly Baby Sister.
Her nuptials are now long done and did, and this blog post talks like they are still in the future.

It was a beautiful wedding, truly.
And if I do say so myself, the barn (where they had their reception) couldn't have looked more lovely.

I'll sneak one picture in and then let Manda Lou Who share the rest when she returns.

I'm quite certain it was me who started the nickname Baby Sister.
I'm wondering if I should change it?

Baby Sister Who Got Married?
Baby Sister Who Isn't A Baby Anymore?
Baby Wife?

Baby Wife.

Have a lovely Tuesday!

* * * * *

Did you know that I only have 2 more Mondays as a single woman?

Which is now 0....since I started this forever ago...

Isn't that just nuts??

I'll answer for you

Yes, it is


To help me prepare for said upcoming nuptials, last weekend some of my close friends threw me a bridal shower/bachelorette party

Which was super fun

Part of that party included a question/answer game where they were judging how well Fiance and I knew each other

Let's just say I thought I would pass with flying colors

I mean, come on

Fiance and I have been together for how long?

Millions of years

Eons and Eons

Since dinosaurs roamed the earth

Yes, we are that old

Don't we age well?

I thought so

And let me tell you, the things we have seen over the years...

But I digress

Where was I?

Oh yes,  Fiance and I knowing each other perfectly well

Well, according to the wads of gum in my mouth and the aversion to all things sweet afterwards, we don't really know each other that well

But I'm blaming that on him and saying that he just doesn't answer questions very well

That and the thought of putting just one more piece of bubblegum scared me so much that it erased all sensible knowledge of Fiance out of my head

For example?

Fiance once updated his iPod and all of his music was erased from it

And he was so annoyed with iTunes that he refused to deal with putting his music back on

And that's been for a year or so...maybe more

And I know that

So one of the questions was what is the most played song on your (Fiance's) iPod or something like that

And instead of being logical and realizing what the true answer was, I thought "Fiance doesn't even listen to really anything but classical and crazy techno..."

So I said "Well, probably something classical"

And then I was presented with my dunce hat and told to go sit in the corner

Okay, not really, but that's certainly what I felt like

Anyway, it was fun and my friends are the best ever!!

Really and truly, they are

Fiance and I have been looking at each other since Saturday, not really believing that we're going to be married this weekend

That Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and now today, are our last respective days as single people

And now Wednesday since I can never seem to just finish this post....

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Hooray for holidays and an extra day off!!

Seriously though, I love Thanksgiving 

Not just because of the food, although that is always an added bonus

The opportunity to spend time with family and take time out of our lives to take note of all that we have to be grateful for

This year my heart has turned towards the men and women who are serving our country in the armed forces

Every time I see a picture on Facebook or hear a song that has been tweaked to dedicate said song to them or watch a show that is dedicated to them, I get a little bit teary eyed

Just thinking of the sacrifice that they, along with their families, make to protect us and our freedoms gets my water works going just about every time

I've had family serve in the armed forces, so maybe that's why it is a little bit closer to my heart

And I know this probably makes me sound really selfish, but there is a small part of my heart that is so very grateful that Fiance can never serve in that capacity because of his health limitations

If he was able to, and if he chose to, I would respect and honor those wishes with everything inside of me

But I am oh so grateful that we don't ever have to worry about that

Anyway, I am so grateful for this day of Thanksgiving

For my family, friends, and loved ones

For Fiance

For Fiance's car

For my home

For a job

For food

For clean water

For warm clothing

For socks and shoes

For books

For mugs ;)

And for you, my friends

I'm so grateful that you keep coming back even though I'm being so inconsistent right now

Once the wedding is over life will calm down a little bit again

For those who celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope you have a marvelous Thanksgiving filled with family and love

And for those that don't, I hope you have a marvelous day filled with family and love :)

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
