Thankful Thurday

Special time I have gotten to spend with my closest friend and her sweet new baby girl. 

We found a townhouse.  It's in the same neighborhood/complex P already lives in.  We haven't actually seen it or signed a lease, but they say it has new flooring and appliances.

P still wants me to come to NY, even though a big chunk of the time I will be there he will be in the field.  At least I will get him all packed up, apartment deep cleaned for move out, and moved into the townhouse (finger double criss-crossed)!!

People who love me and want to be at our wedding celebrating our new love and the start of out new life.

Wedding Wednesday

So although not working this week so far has been a little strange and some what anxiety inducing, it hasn't been so bad. 

I have been keeping really busy with wrapping up some wedding stuff.  Such as buying 128 bottles of water at Sam's Club so that my future mother-in-law and I can rip all the labels off and stick on some new custom wedding labels in a few weeks. 

I also went to our reception site today.  I was so pleasantly surprised to see a ton of amazing improvements.  I can't wait for the party there!  It's not only going to be gorgeous but SO much fun!

Church stuff is done.  Well as long as the priest is ok with the readings we picked out...   Loved the music ladies.  They were so excited to play at our wedding.  I found out that our church only does 2-3 weddings every year, and this will be the priest first wedding at this church.  I feel like this bit of info is very enlightening.

Also have the rehearsal dinner invites being designed, the shower invites are out and are SOOOO pretty!

Lots of good stuff going on.

Blessing in Disguise

Sometimes things that seem awful are really just blessings in disguise. 

After some events that happened last week at work P and I talk about our options and decided that it would be best to give my notice on Friday.  After I gave it to my manager I was asked to pack my stuff and leave.  It was heart breaking.  I had no chance to say good-bye to my clients and felt like the past 3 years working for the company was not appreciated at all.

The upside is that I am going to New York for the majority of May.  I am driving out the beginning in May and staying for about 2 weeks.  Coming home for my shower, then flying back for 4 days over Memorial Day weekend. 

P went and checked out the house we thought we were going to rent.  Thank goodness he did because from the 2 pictures he sent and the shape he told me it is in there is no way we will be moving in.  Luckily he gave me the number for a townhouse subdivision right outside of post that has open rentals!!  I think it will be a much better fit.  Well maintained homes, lawn care, snow removal, close to post and shopping!  We are hoping that we can move in while I am out there in a few weeks.  Super excited to start getting settled in to our home.

Saturday my friend Jenny and I went to a bachelor auction that was to benefit a local organization that houses abused women and children.  Jen bought a date and talked with some nice guys.  I bought a fun photo package.  The best part of the night was getting all dressed up!

what are we waiting for

Easter weekend with P was great!  No surprise there.  Even our meeting with the priest who wouldn't look at me and told me I am P's subject and must obey him was better just because we were sitting next to each other.

As we were getting in the car to go to the airport on Monday I joked with him that I should just pack and bag and grab Violet and we should drive back to NY.  At the time it was more of a joke since we both didn't want to have to leave each other.

I went back to work yesterday and had one of the worst days ever.  I had already started feeling pretty mentally checked out, but still very attached to my clients.  We have had a TON of change in the salon in the past 4-6 months and it's not the salon I once enjoyed going into everyday.  I called P after I left and was pretty upset.  I asked him why am I doing this.  Other than my clients, of course, and the fact I love doing hair I dread going to work.

Again we brought up, this time not joking, me just coming to NY now.  Not moving yet, just a long visit.  I could leave next weekend and drive back in May for my shower.  It's so tempting.  We are both at the point where we just want to be together.  I have most of the wedding stuff done with.  Just little detail things that I can work on out there and once I get back in May.

But what would I do all day out there????  I'm guessing pack his stuff for our move into the house, clean the apartment, P90X my brain out, and cook.

What to do, what to do....  Wish someone would say "Do it!  You only live once"  or "Don't, wait until after the wedding.  Tough it out"

Sunday Ramblings

The week is finally here!  It's the week P comes!

This also the start of Holy Week.  I went to church tonight at the parish I grew up in. The priest is a riot.  He gave an awesome homily.  Made we want to let go of a lot of the stress I am caring around and use this week as a fresh start.  Not that I am not happy or anything like that, but I have been edgy and getting way to easily upset and taking my stress out on those closest to me.

I am watching the ACM's tonight.  Jason Aldean is singing his new song that I totally love.  Makes me so excited for our drive out to New York this summer and the start of our new life.  The night I met P Jason Aldean was the headliner at the music fest we were at (we did not see him).  Funny because P hates country music and it makes me think about him so much.
