Well i'm still super busy- have a test tomorrow and work in a couple of hours and projects to think about...BUT in the midst of all this i'm in the process of booking an engagement shoot!! I'm so excited about this though also pretty nervous. I do NOT have a good experience with photo shoots! (not that i've ever had an official one) but i always come out HORRENDOUS in staged pictures- so fake and ugh! I'm just not good at this. Not to mention all this high-def stuff and close-ups are SCARY (especially with MY skin...)

Anyways, I'm hoping for the best and am grateful for photoshop. and i have full faith in the photographers...i guess we'll see.

Busy Day

Today I'm working on Fe's invites (we figured out what we're doing!!! soooo prettyyyyyyyy) and studying for a test on Thurs....

Monday, October 27, 2008


It's almost November!!! November is a very exciting month for me. So many expectations and so many things to look forward to. Mainly its a make or break month for my wedding. you see my dear daddy is expecting to get a good sum of money mid to late Nov. However, with this economy one never knows what to expect (this event has already been postponed from october). So I am hoping and praying that this comes through. If it does it'll be great! if it doesn't...we're talking Do it yourself EVERYTHING. which i also love but will be alittle more challenging since i want to do this in less that 90 days!

So yeah. Here are some other things happening in Nov.

-Fe's Bridal Shower
-The beautiful shoes i've been eyeing goes on sale
-Thanksgiving! (my second fav holiday after christmas)
-engagement shoot??
-Rachel's 1st B-day!

And if my dad gets paid....
-book reception place (caterer, linens, rentals...)
-find invites, car rental, music, ect
-start on favors, and other personalized items (SECRET items)
-Book Photographer, videographer

This is so exciting!!! Oh and Mikey made BEAUTIFUL save the dates for us to hand out soon!!!! (add finalize guest list to the things i gotta do). Will post a picture as soon as I hand them out (also some time november).

Late night thoughts

I'm so glad the weekend is so close!! I miss Mikey -although he did surprise me yesterday by driving down with a movie and everything! He rented "My Sassy Girl" which i thought i didn't like in the beginning but then was bawling my eyes out in the end (I mean really bawling).

Anyways, I'll finish the experimentation part of my study tomorrow... not looking forward to writing it up- but one step closer to being done.

The wedding is pretty much on hold until we settle some things...but i have all the details right here in my head. Can't wait to share! Here's a dress that I'm absolutely in love with!!!! it's just so beautiful and feminine (it's also Carolina Herrera and $10,000) A girl can dream...

Sleepy Thursday

I have a waking-up problem. This morning I had a class at 8am I got up, got dressed and went back to sleep. Fully clothed. yeah i know. So now i am at school it's almost eleven and i have another class and a quiz.

Yesterday we finished the first phase of our doctorate expeiment which went pretty well. 24 people showed up which is great since we r hoping for a total of 30 and have one more day to go.

I am tired. sleepy. and tired. Will try to post again once i am home. till then check out my awesome wedding website!!!

Fe if your reading this- pick one!!

Weekend Round Up

What a great weekend I had. It was just lovely. From church to our sunday spent at pinecrest gardens and at registries (I'm quite at home at registries now), it was all very pleasant. This week I should be finishing the experimentation part of my doctorate project which is exciting.... Also I think I found invitations I like (see below). They are simple yet beautiful (I love umbrellas for some reason). I found them and Crane and Co. I also visited Micheals today and got some ideas for favors....Next on the list...Save the Dates????? Maybe I will, maybe i won't (seems like a skipable step, but very thoughtful).

Wedding Update

So we picked a date: Jan 25th 2009. I know. SOON. I'm not pregnant people! we just don't want to wait anymore (we've been together 3.10 years) We're ready to start our lives together! We are soooo happy! We really can't wait. I hope we can pull this off in such short notice but really, even if we end up going to the court house...we just want to be MARRIED!

The registries are just about done (we registered at Macy's and Crate & Barrel). Just a few more things we need to decide on. We're also looking a Ikea for some essentials (why don't they have a registry program???). I'm getting ideas for the decor but have some set backs as far as color schemes (so many decisions!!).

We also thought about having our wedding all vegan, but I think that would complicate things...So we're still not sure.

As far a location we want to be married in a church but are facing some issues there as well (his church is in Fort lauderdale, mine is Miami Beach and the reception places we like are far from both!!)

So it's a little stressful but oh so much fun!!! I love this new stage of my life!!!!!

PS In addition, I'm still on Maid of Honor duty- gotta find an invitation for the bridal shower!! Never thought I'd be so picky about shower invitations!! I guess i need a good favor idea too...hum.... gotta a busy weekend ahead!

Curious Happenings

This weekend I did everything I said I would except get Fe's invitations (I will keep looking today). The petting zoo was great! My brother actually works at PInecrest Gardens (which is BEAUTIFUL) so we went there and enjoyed the animals, the gardens and the splash pad! I also visited a dear friends i've known since 2nd grade and hadn't seen in a while which was great too!

About Registering for gifts..OMG i had no idea! in one word it was ...overwhelming. So many choices! how do we know what'll match with our house since we don't know what our house will look like?? what's safe to cook in?? do we really need a gravy boat? AAAHHH so i deleted everything i had done on sunday and started over online yesterday. The list is coming along.

And then yesterday the most extraordinary thing-I over slept (which isn't all that unusual) and thought I had missed school then I got 3 texts telling me class was cancelled!!!! don't u love when that happens???

Anyways I have a dermatology appointment today. Looking forward to some samples :)

My thursday night

I just watched You Got Mail for like the millionth time!! (mikey bought me a copy) I love that movie!! I don't know why! am I alone?? serioulsy go watch this movie again, it is just lovely. Maybe it's because it's set in New York (and i love NYC), or maybe because It reminds me of how me n mikey got started (we didn't meet online but we got to know each other alot on AIM), or maybe it's just a great story-and i'm a sucker for great stories... I dunno but i've really watched it over 10x definitely. I'm kinda sick of all this political stuff and all this economy stuff that's on TV. It's disheartening.

Anyways, while I watched the movie I also gave my mom a hair cut and a dye job! haha came out pretty good! guess i'll go blow dry her hair now...i'll post a picture incase anyone's curious...

Bridesmaids Dresses from David's Bridal

I'm so impressed with the line of bridesmaids dresses from David's Bridal. I went to a Bridal Expo last Sunday where they had a David's Bridal fashion show. Here are three of my favorite styles from the show. They look even better in person. Trust me. Really pretty.

It all happened in Las Olas..we went to the beach at night- he had his guitar...we played music, sang and prayed together (I was of course very suspicious- but I thought maybe he was trying to throw me off). Then all of a sudden I heard a clunk inside his guitar! and I was like "oh nooooo what is that!!!" and we both knew what was coming next but he said "he had to do it" and so he did. He got down on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him- and in one moment he made all my dreams come true. I know everyone must say this, but I really am the happiest woman in the world!

Here comes the good part- i said yes- of course and we hugged and then I go "ok well let's see it!!" and I open the box..and.. NOTHING. So naturally, knowing mikey i assume he's joking and he's gonna take it out of his pocket any minute. But then I see the panic in his face. "I'm so not kidding beca, I'm so not kidding." he starts to look around everywhere. Mind you- on the beach. at night. Luckily we were on a lounge chair, and after searching frantically, he found it dangling on the chair strap -about to fall through the crack!!

and i love it of course, because it's perfect. but most of all because of what it represents, and because he gave it to me.
