A Little More About Me..

I finished the Twilight series, and it was awesome! I loved it, and Megan is loving it right now too. The movie comes out November 21, and I can't wait to go see it.

I talked to our loan officer today and found out that we were approved for our mortgage so now all we have to do it get house insurance and then close on November 7. It's so weird that we're really doing it. We're going to own a home in a little over a week. How crazy.

Josh just told me that he talked to his best friend Sean who is in the Marines today. Sean is the best man in our wedding and we were really upset to hear that he would be deployed in January before our wedding. We decided not to replace him and that Josh would only have groomsmen, and no best man. It just doesn't seem right to give it to someone else. Anyway, when he talked to him today he said that things are changing a little bit with who gets deployed when so he actually might be able to be here. Nothing definite, but I'll definitely be praying about it. I hope he can be here, it would really mean a lot to us both.

Not a lot to update right now. I'm just pushing through to the end of the semester. Only a little while longer. I'm very excited to get working on education classes. The more I think about becoming a teacher, the more I can't wait for it. I hope I'm good at it.

Cake Topper

I decided that I want this to be our cake topper. I don't even know what the cake is going to look like yet, but it's going to be designed around this Willow Tree cake topper because I love it.

We went and had our first meeting with our pastor today to talk about our wedding and our marriage. We have to take an online survey and go back in February to go over our results with him and iron out the rest of the wedding specifics. This is the first time we've talked to him. Our original pastor who was going to do our wedding left our church and he took her place. He seems very nice though, I like him. I can't wait for our wedding, I think it's going to be great.

I started reading the Twilight series because my friend Angelica from my International Relations class talked me into it. I was not interested in reading this series at all. I'm a Barnes & Noble member and they always send me emails about hot new books coming out, so I've gotten an email for almost all of the books in the series, but I was dead set that I didn't want to read a book about vampires, I thought it was stupid. Well, I finally gave in when Angelica told me that she felt the same exact way about it, but when she started reading it she couldn't put it down. And here I am, completely hooked on it. I had to go out and buy the third book today (there are four in all). I don't even know how to descibe the books, but I have heard many people say that they are better than Harry Potter (I've never read HP for the same reason why I wasn't going to read these books). If you have free time you should check them out. The author is Stephenie Meyer. The books in order are: Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn. The movie comes out on November 21st. The only thing I wish I would have done differently though, is to have started reading these in the summer. It's impossible to concentrate on my homework!

My Crazy Wonderful Life

Life has been busy lately to say the least. The very least.

I'm more than halfway through my last undergraduate semester in college. I'll have my bachelors degree in about five weeks, which is impossible to believe. In a little over two months I'll be starting at IPFW to finish it all up.

We're closing on our house on November 7, just about two weeks from now. Which is also hard to believe. I never thought it was actually going to happen. I started working on the room I'm going to use as my office last weekend. I got all of the wallpaper down, which wasn't as hard as everyone warned me it would be. I'm going to start cleaning the walls and painting this weekend.

Our wedding is now less than seven months away. Which I can't believe (notice a pattern here? I can't seem to keep up with my own life). I'm ready for it to be here, mentally that is, if it were to be tomorrow I don't have a lot of things done that I still want to do...like pick a honeymoon destination...we need to get on top of that. My problem though, is that I'm so ready to get in the house and get it set up how I want it that the wedding isn't as important to me anymore. If someone else had just wrote that sentence and I had read it ten months ago, I would think they were INSANE. I guess my priorities have changed, a lot. I understand how important our wedding is, but quite honestly, it's about the rest of our lives. We could go to the courthouse and get married in jeans and sweatshirts, it's all the same really. There have been a lot of positive changes in our relationship in the last year, and I think I can contribute it to my growing up, and realizing what is really important in life (which I no longer feel includes 300 favors for our guests, a giant ring, an outrageously expensive trip to Jamaica, or an ice sculpture.) I'm really happy with my life right now, and to be honest, in a way I don't even feel like the same person.

I've lost 38lbs now. Which is, you guessed it, completely unbelievable. I feel so much better all around (except for today. It seems that no matter how much weight you lose, you can never escape cramps and bloating.) I still do stupid stuff though. The other night I was at Sam's Club getting dog food and burst an entire 50lb bag of food on the floor. The whole thing. Talk about embarrassing. At least that part of me isn't gone.

And I just want to point out, I always thought an ice sculpture was outrageous, Josh wanted that one.

This Is A Joke Right?

Well, the good news is that I'll be able to go to IKEA soon. I went on the website just now to see how much the shipping would be on the desk I am getting ready to order. Check this out.

That is just about impossible to read so here is a zoomed in version of the web page.

The shipping is almost twice the cost of the desk! Holy cow. So yeah, I'll be driving to Michigan soon. : )

The Five People You Meet In Heaven

For my Grief & Loss class we have to read The Five People You Meet In Heaven. I've already read it, but I'm kind of excited about reading it again. It's been so long since I did read it that I think it will probably mean more to me this time, like I'll get more out of it. I love my grief class, by the way. It has been awesome so far, but it really makes me think. I've never had to read a fun book before for a class. That's all.

Wedding Shoes

My shoes came in on Friday (well, the shoes I'm keeping, at least) and they are prefect! I am so excited to wear them. I was slightly aggravated though, because I ordered them in a 7, and when they came they were WAY too big. So I ordered a 6.5 and they fit much better. I can't believe my feet have gotten smaller! Geez. Anywho, if you like them check out target.com.

Wedding Hair.

I'm almost positive this is how I will have my hair done for our wedding. I've decided to just go ahead and let my curls have free reign (because they usually do what they want anyway.) I don't want to have to worry about my hair getting kinky from being hot or whatnot, so this is the easier way, and I definitely love this girls hair! I will definitely be trying it beforehand.
