Mrs. Alex

I'm married! The wedding went really well, despite the few hiccups during the reception. I cried pretty much the entire wedding, but that's ok. :) I can barely type right now thanks to my fake nails. And sadly, Alex and I did not bring the camera cord with us, so I can't upload any pictures yet. Although, I did check it out and my camera definitely disappeared before the aren't any pictures of Alex and I together on there. I'll just have to rely on the kindness of others (and a professional photographer) to see them. ;)

And I'm off...I'm honeymooning, kids! What am I doing blogging??

I'm just so sorry

I am a HORRIBLE blogger. I'm blaming all of this on the wedding moving up fiasco. And although this saddens me because I am missing out on great stories, I also take comfort in the fact that I've been so busy in my life living it, that I haven't had a chance to write, re-write, and then write again a blog post that I'll eventually delete. With that said, I sure do miss reflection sometimes. But I'm a busy Bride-To-Be with parents in town (they arrived tonight, first trip to Ohio EVER) and classes to go to (I got applause at my class tonight and my prof told me I don't have to remember anything from tonight's lecture). Today was my last day of work and class, so I will not be bound to any normal person activities for the next few days. Instead, I will be thinking this: 'I'M GETTING MARRIED SATURDAY. I'M GETTING MARRIED SATURDAY,' followed by a little jig. It's a pretty good feeling, though the stress of looking fat in my dress and that people will think my wedding blows keeps creeping into my head. But it's ok, right? Because, at the end of the day, Alex and I will be married and I can officially begin spending the money he makes with abandon. Or something like that.

All of that is to say that I truly am so, so sorry for neglecting you internet. I make no promises (certainly not this weekend) but I hope to be back soon.

Hugs and kisses! Cause I'm getting MARRIED!

Moving Along...

We have secured our marriage license. This is key in the process of getting married. So, that's one more thing down.

And we've gone over the program multiple times. And by "we," I mean "me." Alex, I believe, is tiring of the wedding preparation process and is ready to be done with it already. Not that I blame him. This constant state of stress and annoyance is getting to be a bit much. I'm not very focused on my studies (Did I mention I went back to school? Cause I went back to school. Graduate school. First semester. And I'm getting married. Hahahahahahahahaha! Timing couldn't be better!) and I have this creeping feeling that I'm falling behind and will reach the end of the semester and it'll be just like that dream where you go to class and it's your final and you're not prepared at all. Or naked. I mean, I'm pretty sure I won't show up to class naked, but it's that embarrassed, exposed feeling that's just so icky. Kind of like how Britney Spears must feel right now. (Oy! That poor girl.)

I've had the (unfortunate) experience of running into multiple people from my past these past few days. All of whom are people that I'd prefer to never see again and yet they keep popping up. These are people I haven't seen in years. Years! And then BAM! They're EVERYWHERE. Most of them I don't actually hold contempt for, it's just that when I see them, I immediately think nasty thoughts about myself and feel all icky and introspective-y in the worst way. And I'd much prefer to remain shallow and happy, thank you very much. So I'm just going to have ban half of the northern part of this city. Awesome. My friend Erin calls it "blacklisting." This is something I will steal from her. Now.

Did you know I'm getting married in less than 12 days? Because I am.

So it's been over a month since I posted. My bad. A lot of crap has happened when has led to my silence. Mainly getting really devastating news about one of my soon-to-be family members. Which led to Alex and I deciding that the best course of action was to push the wedding up to September 22nd. Which is, oh, about three weeks away. I generally try not to think about it or I just feel like puking. That's a lot of work in a little amount of time, you know? And if you'll notice, the last post was on July 31st. And we decided to push the wedding up after that date. Yep. Life sucks sometimes, but it has been a blessing to see everything fall into place for the wedding. I also started grad school two weeks ago and so I am squeezing that into my frenzy of hair and florist and church and dress appointments. It's been fun and stressful and a complete roller coaster of emotions. But if I know that in the end everything will be okay. Alex and I will be married and I will be firmly on my way to becoming a full-fledged, gainfully employed person who enriches young lives for a living.

Now if only I can convince myself to FEEL that everything will be okay, we'd be good to go!
