Giving Thanks

There are so many things i'm thankful for:

-My faith-which is my hope, my strength, what pushes me to try to be a better person everyday.
-Mikey- i cannot believe I found the one I love and he picked me! he is my everything.
-My family- My anchor and the base of who I am.
-Health (after the scares this year) and that of the ones I love.
-Friends - I truly believe i have the best friends in the world.
-New baby that's coming
-The opportunity to study and become something- though it drives me crazy sometimes.
-All the blessings in my life.
-Blessings unknown.
-The difficulties in life that bring us close and shapes our character.
-The list could go on and on really....

So this year, Thanksgiving will be at my house (I've been told to make a vegan desert). Last year we had a buffet and people kinda just floated around...This year I really wanted to have everyone sit at the table. So we're putting two tables together and making it look beautiful. I can't wait.

I love the Holidays, I just thrive on this kindoff stuff. I really want it to be special. Maybe we'll go around and say what we're most thankful for and maybe read alittle something. Everyone will get dressed up and have some tofurky!! ok ok, we're having a real turkey to. I can't wait!!!!

Bridal Attire

so, though i cannot speak of details...i can say that dress is exquisite. hehe (at least i think so). And i can tell u how i got it!

So i got an invite from the knot to this sale at Ever After (such a beautiful store! can't believe i got my dress there!). So i went with my mom and sister and noah, and derrick (my sister's husband) went too since he had the day off-which was great to have a guy's opinion. he was very helpful!

So we all went, thinking nothing about it (this was the first and only store i went to!!). and so i believe it was the second or third dress i tried on- i felt like a princess with all the beautiful gowns. and i just kept going back to it. so i called my cousin ellen and waited an HOUR for her to get there but i needed to have her opinion (she is my maid of honor along with my sister- yeah i'm having two maids of honor-i couldn't choose!) so everyone loved it and decided i NEEDED to have it.

So i bought it! just like that. i couldn't believe it! but the biggest critic was still to see it- my dad. he is not afraid to tell u he doesn't like something! i mean, there is no sugar coating with him. so i was a little afraid. but when i put it on for him he said he'd never seen such a beautiful dress!!!! so i am VERY happy.

here's a pic of the store

my shoes r another story: i went with my mom to Aventura a while back to look for shoes. I had my heart set on some stuart weitzmans and they have a store there. so to my dismay i found out that my feet are way to fat to fit into ANY stuart weitzman shoe. to my further dismay i fell in love with the most expensive shoes i found and they fit me like a GLOVE.

So of course i left the mall totally disappointed. and beautiful friend Delfina came to the rescue!! she informed me that the shoes would go on sale for significant amount and they would magically become-AFFORDABLE! so they did go on sale and it was great! and now they are mine :D right here. by my side. sigh....

so that's the story of how i got my dress and shoes. my veil will be made by my grandmother who made my sister's beautiful gown. i'm the happiest woman in the world.

I woke up today with some nasty allergic reaction all over my face. Good start right. (good thing the photoshoot was LAST weekend)

Well today i need to finalize everything for Fe's bridal shower. Hoping to get a little study time too... Tomorrow after church we have our pre-marital class (wonder what that'll be like) and then sunday's the shower! so- busy! busy!

PS I went to the Wedding SAlon bridal show- it was nice- i guess alot of the same vendors go to these things sooo, at least the goody bag was good. (i got shaving gel, soap, godiva chocolate, 3 bridal magazines, heel protectors for ur pumps, some shimery make-up stuff, a little box with a garder, handkerchief and ring bag....i'm telling you- best gift bag so far. I think this will be my last bridal show.

PhotoShoot Today!

I usually don't post on the weekends..but i really had to mention what happened! Well ok so we have been planning a photoshoot and we really wanted it to take place at a carnival! we thought all the colors and lights and the atmosphere would be perfect! plus our first date was at a carnival! so anyways, the only one we found was in miami inside Santa's enchanted forest which would be a little pricey not to mention FAR. We also were concerned about lighting since the forest only opened at 5pm...

So yesterday while coming back from an exchanging trip at the mall we missed a turn and took the long way home. Guess what we came across??!! A carnival!!!! close to home! free admission!!! and open from 1-9pm!!!!!! I was soooo happy!!! Seriously that is why I am not stressed about the wedding (i have nothing and it's less than 3 months away). God seems to be on our side ;) and cheering!!!

So now i will get ready for this shoot. Hope it comes good!!! Will post pics as soon as i have!

Tomorrow i have to go to an elementary school to do an evaluation/assessment. I'm beginning to feel more and more like a physical therapist..hmmmm... after only 7 years. go figure! ha. ha.

Wedding update: bands are expensive. As some of u know, mikey is a musician so a band at our wedding would be absolutely AMAZING! yeah, amazing and expensive. and so far my dad, as far as i know, has not received the oh so anticipated money. so- still at a dead end. Pray for me people.

"Se LLama Obama"

I am so inspired by what has happened i our country! honestly! it gave me a warm and fuzzy feeling inside to hear his speech! Yes we can!! hehe i have high expectations for this one...we'll soon see. But what are we gonna do without tina fay's sarah palin??!!

Wedding Salon

I got an invitation in the mail from to the Wedding Salon. Apparently it's a luxury bridal show. It's being held at the Biltmore Hotel which is beautiful!!! Anyways, tickets are $50!!!! but theyre giving them away free to brides (at least at theknot). So i really wanna go (it's next Monday)!!! But noone will pay 50 bones to go with me. I'm trying to get my engaged friends (which, surprisingly there are quite a few) to go.

Here's Martha Stewart at the one in NY!

Today I will have to renew my CPR certification (it expires in April while I will be mid-internship). - 3 hours in the middle of the day (boooring). Also today I will start my pre-wedding work-out regime (hopefully).

Fernanda's Invites

I can't check off "make and hand-out fe's invites" off my list! they came out sooo pretty!!!! I didn't take any pictures but here are some pictures of where i got the idea from. Here's the link with more pics and detailed instructions.

Mine came out pretty similar except i used a pretty ribbon loop on the outside and inside there was a 3 page cardstock little book tied together with ribbon including the invite, registry info and a beautiful little map.

So that's what i was doing thursday and friday (plus feeling very lousy). Then sat night i studied. sunday i studied and went to a bridal show that was very productive at the dadeland marriot. Also attended a bridal shower and right now i just finished a test.

wedding update: We will be doing an engagement shoot on Nov 9th!!! yay!! (will post pictures)
