Taking the plunge...

My MOH is getting married in just a few days and I wanted to say a few words to her...

Its seems silly how two little words and a small ring can change the rest of your life. Signing your name on the dotted line, knowing that you just created your new family. We've spent our lives remembering the past and planning for our futures but this weekend, just sit back and relish every moment you can because before you know it, it will be next week and you'll be an married woman. I know I've said it before how you lucked out to find such a great man, but in reality, I always thought he was the lucky one to find a person like you!

Best wishes and many happy moments on your journey together!

Date Night

One thing the hubby and I started a few months ago was date night. After the wedding it's really easy to have your life just blend all together, errands after dinner, exercise in the evenings, shows, happy hours, etc etc etc. We realized that while we did spend a lot of time together, sometimes the quality is sacrificed and wanted to figure out a way to improve it, hence our date nights.

Last night we had our first date night in about a month. We've spend a great deal of time together this last month with everything that happened, I don't think we really had any real alone time where our minds were together. Our typical pizza at our favorite joint and a movie (the new Batman is really good btw). Nothing special but it was really good time. After the movie I looked at him and told him thank you for one of the best date nights we had in months and for the first in the last three week, I felt very content and happy.

Do you do anything to keep that spark going after the dust has settled from the wedding?

Can we just forget this month?

I've been trying to get back into the swing of things but if it isn't one thing it's another. I went to a wonderful bachelorette party last weekend for one of BFF's. Everything was great and I really tried my hardest to shake my little rain cloud that is following me. Well, the heavens thought I still wasn't ready to be completely myself and what do you know, I caught a nasty chest cold. I spent Sunday and Monday dead asleep and have been coughing up a storm ever since. Any thought of exercise throughs me into coughing attack. I'm slowly getting better. The goal is to be all healthy by next weekend. I don't want to be that BM that coughs on the bride! ;)

The last two weeks have been really hard. With losing someone so close to the hubby and me, and everything at my job, I've been feeling so not myself. No usual smile, no usual pep in my steps. It just feels like something really needs to change. Need to shake life up a bit!

My good friend just sent me this from Dean's blog:


Do you sometimes feel trapped, unable to break free from the chamber that holds you prisoner? Do you long to escape, to be blown free in a blast of warm air, liberated forever from the bowels of containment?

Sometimes the situation seems forever hopeless, I know. But that’s when you need to dig deepest, that’s when you need to continue foraging boldly onward despite the acrid mire and the total darkness. Go to the light. Don’t give up. When all seems lost, never forget…Click here

When I read this, I thought Dean was writing how I felt. Then I clicked and chuckled to myself, and knew hope is not lost!

I think with the events going to conspire this weekend I will break out of my little world more and get back to myself. If i don't do it for me, I'll do it for you dear blog friends!

I hate to keep delaying our regular blogging schedule since it was just delayed because of our last vacation. I'll be taking a little hiatus for the next week or so due to a death in our family. Thank you all for always being supportive and I'll "see" y'all next week.
