By the way, Florida was great. Thanks for asking!
Rather than provide you (or whoever is still hanging on at this point) with a laundry list of excuses as to just why I haven't gotten off my lazy behind and wrote something, anything about the happening of my life since oh, July.... I will spare you and just say that working 30 hrs/week + 12 credit hrs of school/week + 3 hrs of student teaching/week + schoolwork + a fiance in nursing school + planning a wedding = one VERY tired LaLa!
Now, wait a minute.
What just happened you ask?
What just happened in this equation?
PLANNING A WEDDING?
What the what??
Why yes, we are...
On Sunday, September 16 2012 (our 5 year anniversary) Tyler as little old me to be his wife. But, that's just the short version of the story. I will certainly be making another post to tell you about the whole thing. Which brings me to my next proposition.
I have been thinking about this since...well..since September. I would really like to start making weekly (or maybe even more if I can) posts about our journey to our wedding day, which by the way will be on October 18, 2014.
Our budget is around $5,000. If you've read any of my past posts, you know my parents aren't really that involved in my life, and Tyler will be in nursing school up until 3 months before the wedding. I graduate this coming August. So, it's pretty much up to me (with a little tiny bit of help from his parents) to pay for this thing.
I know $5,000 sounds crazy, but through a lot of research and pinning and asking for help, I think we can do it and I'd love for y'all to join me on this crazy ride. I plan to make updates each week about what ideas I've come across, DIY projects, stuff I've bought, etc. And I'm hoping that through this process I'll be able to help another bride like me.
I'm looking forward to it, I hope you are too!
I'll also be making some changing around here. Maybe even my blog name. Stay tuned!
I'll leave you with some pictures of my life since July. I can't wait to catch up with all of y'all too!
