new adventures

As I sit here typing I can't help but notice all the paint that I still have on my nail polish, the calluses caused from the paint rollers, and the fact that I can barely sit down without my quads burning....all thanks to my weekend of painting our house :) As of today, we have half of the master bedroom and the bathroom left to do and then it's move in time for me! I was sitting on my couch catching up on my reality TV last night thinking of all the packing that I will have to embark on coming up here....then all the unpacking that I will have after.....the overwhelming realization has now arrived not just because of moving but because in just a mere 48 days I will be a married woman.

Some changes have occured, we are no longer going to Fiji...long story there but we are now going to Maui :) I am very excited because of many things:

A) I have never been and always wanted to go.
B) I now get to swim with dolphins. This is something that I have always wanted to do :)
C) I don't have to worry about not liking the food, because in Fiji, I kinda did worry about not liking it...I kept that one to myself but I am sure Nick thought about it at least once.
D) I get to pack more than 33 pounds now....not even kidding this should be at the top of my list because anyone who knows me knows that I do not pack light.....
E) The flight is a lot shorter now and anyone who knows Nick knows that he HATES flying...his flight went from 16 hours to just a tiny 5 hours.

I get to pick up my dress this Saturday!!!! :) There was a HUGE dramastical incident that happened last week...another long story short, after 4 phone calls to the bridal boutique, the dress maker Headquarters in Atlanta, the flagship store in Beverly Hills, and 2 conversations to the owner of the bridal boutique...the delivery date for my dress that once was in July...then they moved it to mid-late August, then to freaking LATE September, is now set for August 28th. I will be able to rest better once I have it in my hands because this has been one. horrible. experience. ever.

And the newest of the news....

I was talking to my best friend, Alison on the phone this morning and we were talking about something that I just love doing and that would love to do for the rest of my life....and it hit me...I now have a "plan" and can't wait to start working on it. I will blog more about it later but I am really excited!

Until then, I will leave you all with some pictures from my bridal shower :)
