I'm baaaaaack!

It has been a little over a year since I last blogged up something. My dear friend Sarah has requested that I return to the blog, and I'm thinking, why the heck not? Lord knows I have an abundance of topics to blog about this year. One thing I need to learn though is how to post some pics so that my blog will be visually interesting as well. I'll work on it. A new camera might be in order ;)

So big news that I'm sure everyone who reads this blog already knows anyways is that I am engaged to be married on 9/10/11, and what a roller coaster ride wedding planning has been so far! As some of you might know, I can't make up my mind for crap. Calling me indecisive is an understatement. This wedding's location has probably changed more than I've changed my socks.

Here were some of the options being considered:
1.) In Tampa on a dinner yacht
2.) On a cruise ship
3.) In Key West on the beach
4.) Turn the honeymoon into a weddingmoon at Sandals in Negril
5.) In Vegas at the Valley of Fire State Park

And where am I ending up having it? At The Lakehouse at Avondale in ATLANTA! Ugh. If you can't tell from the above list, I really, really wanted to get away. To go somewhere, anywhere! Well, that's not happening, and for reasons I'd rather not broadcast on a blog, but maybe, despite all the STRESSFUL wedding planning, it will be good to have the wedding here. Let's focus on the positives:

1.) More people will be able to attend
2.) I'll get to have a first dance
3.) I'll get to shake my booty to a setlist that I picked out with a DJ
4.) I can have the photobooth I've always wanted
5.) Hopefully my photography will be of better quality than a destination location photographer

OK, that's the best I can do for now. Unfortunately though, because I was last planning on going to Vegas and had put down a deposit, I am now losing my deposit plus I am technically behind on the wedding to-do list timeline. That does not help when trying to book vendors, especially when you are having a Saturday wedding, in the fall, on a date like 9/10/11, in Atlanta. Boo! At least I got a venue.

Besides the wedding planning, the other major stressor in my life is my masters degree program. I have been working on this degree for way too long and it's about time I receive it. Right now I am in my (hopefully) last class and I should (hopefully) be finished by May. With that being said, I am grounding myself on the weekends in April till I get this work done, which really sucks. I want to go outside and play! I have to keep thinking, "get the degree, make more money, get the degree, make more money". I've never been good with long term gratification though.

With that being said, I am clearly procrastinating getting school work done while writing this blog, so I better wrap it up for now. I'll be back soon though! Follow me!


  1. good luck with your class! and SO GLAD you're back and I get to see all the updates :)miss ya!
