Where Have I Been?

Okay, So I officially SUCK, and in a couple of ways.

1. I just bombed a test in my Marriage and Family class (irony much?). I literally took the test just now online and I was seriously off my game. I need at least a B in this class and this latest test outcome makes me VERY upset.

2. When the freak was the last time I blogged?! Where have I been??? Well, since I haven't blogged in a while (because I sucky suck) I shall give a few updates!

T and I are getting into wedding planning mode. It just hit me today, the wedding is in 7 months! This time is going to fly by and we need to step it up. Haha. So my lovely sister bought me a wedding planner/keepsake book to keep me all organized and make the planning easier. The book is the best! It has everything, checklists (my favorite), guides, information, budgetors (is that a word? Budgeting tools is more like it, huh?) all the goods! The checklists start at 9 months, and if you remember, we are 7 months away. So on the 9 month checklist there are 30 things! 30! There is another 6 month checklist with 15 more things to do. My planner says I am very far behind so everything in our lives will be about the WEDDING! (well sort of)

T and I are going to look at venues Friday because we are both off. Hopefully we will pick one and have that all done. Then my best friend Amanda is taking our engagement photos, FOR FREE!!! Because she is freaking awesome! So when that is all done we can send our save the dates. WHOOT!

Obviously there is more to do but I'll leave it there for now.

And just because I am obsessed (and because this iPhone is amazing) , more ring photos!

Second update. I am applying to Universities this week! Even though I love it very much I am excited to get out Community College and get my degree! Yay for me. I am worried about being excepted to my top schools (San Diego State & CSU Fullerton) but I put everything in the hands of God. We will see what happens.

Third update. I just bought a dress for the Marine Corps Ball next week. It is beautiful, less flashy than the last one, but absolutely gorgeous. I am excited to show it off. 

Fourth Update. T and I are looking for apartments. I have found a place I am OBSESSED with. It has granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, walk-in closets, and my personal favorite IN SUITE LAUNDRY! Seriously I look at it every day, wishing we could move in now. But were waiting to see if T picks up rank this month and if he does he's going to put in for BAH so we can get it! Super exciting! It will be extremely wonderful for us to have a place of our own.

Well that is all for now. I promise I wont suck as much in the future!

I know how you feel about feeling behind on the wedding planning! I had about 4 months to plan my wedding and the checklists I had started at a year out....ahhhh I had a million things overdue. But they all got done, and so will yours! Check out Martha Stewart's wedding planning website. It was my fave.

I'll be on the same time line as you (once we are officially engaged lol) to to the time we want/plan to get married, so you're totally going to be my inspiration on wedding planning! Good luck on your applications and getting into the school you want, you can do it! Can't wait to hear about the apartment, hope you get your dream one! (And p.s. I am SERIOUSLY in LOVE with your ring, I know I've said it before, but it is GORGEOUS!!)

Wedding planning, I haven't even started that, he needs to be here for that, I want him here but I have to wait. Have fun picking out venus.

And that movie, Our Family Wedding, you should watch it, it's going to show you what your getting into, with all the wedding planning that your going to be doing.
