Ring around the rosies, a pocket full of posies...

My friend Janae wrote a blog yesterday that really made me smile today. She expressed her own feelings/thoughts, and it is how I have felt for the last 10 or so months. It was very sweet and heartfelt... you should check it out if lovey stuff doesn't make you gag too much.

Her blog is http://www.shortestnae.blogspot.com

So it's almost been a whole month that Michael and I have been officially engaged. I'm so happy. The first week I was weirded out by the ring on my left hand. It was uncomfortable and I was so scared of losing it or hurting it in any way. Now if I take it off it is uncomfortable and I feel like somethings wrong. It's sad too because the ring is kind of sharp and it scratches Michaels arm ALL THE TIME. But I keep telling him to get used to it, because I'm not giving it back!! :)

So the wedding is going to be July 18th, 2009. It's a little over 4 month away. CRAZY! So we're busy figuring things out and looking through a ton of Bridal magazines!!

Other than the whole wedding thing, the only other new things in my life are that I've realized I want to start a group date night kinda thing. Have Michael and I go out with other couples and see a movie, go bowling, etc. Dates like when you aren't exclusive and you want to be fun, and laugh... I want to re-capture that.

OH! And I did my taxes and I'm getting an amazing return! So that's awesome...

Here's another thing- I've started going to the gym in January of this year. And I'll be honest I haven't gone ALL THE TIME. But I'm really proud of myself. I've been going to the morning classes and I love it. I love that someone is there directing me, so I'm doing the work out correctly. I go with my friend Laura and she's so supportive. Even when she laughs at me cause I look funny or do something wrong, I know she's there willing to help.

so yeah, that's all for today I'm sick of typing. Oh, if you have an idea for a honeymoon- let me know. We can't seem to decide. We don't want to spend a ton, but we want to have a fun, relaxing, romantic trip. Tell me your ideas and what you did for your honeymoons... See ya!

  1. I'm glad it made you smile. Just made me cry. haha.

    It took me a long time to get used to my ring, too. We've gone our whole lives being told NOT to wear a ring on that finger and then bam! There it is. Weird.

    I am glad you are so happy.

    July 18th. Where?

    Group date night--fun.

    Good for you on the gym thing. Really -- I promise that Fat Smash thing is so amazing if you wanted to do it.

    Honeymoon ideas: Cruise. The end.
