My Bubs-aversary + 1




Happy Saint Patrick's Day to you all...though not being Irish it's not a HUGE day for me....I am more focused on yesterday as that was my four year bubs-aversary (that is anniversary in Jenn-speak).

yup 4 years to the day since I got off the plane the first time in this fair (fat) city....and my bubs and I made our relationship more "official" as opposed to the emotional gray area it existed in in the months before that.

SO there you have it, now we are 4 years later and so close to him making an honest woman out of me...no more "milk for free" of you will.

(I hate that saying, why does the woman have to be the cow?)

So now that we are in crunch time for the wedding I felt I should give you all a little update as to where I am....no, I have not gotten my dress altered, but I will this week, I talked to a wonderful seamstress a block from me and her turnaround time is quick, so I am not worried.

I got my corset to wear under the dress and it is fiercely sexy and does the job of keeping my stomach in and my boobs up.

I got my shoes...now this was a nightmare as all the "bride" shoes were just so dreadful, I swear any kind of dye-able shoe was just ugly and boring...so instead I went out on my own sans bridal shop urgings and bought a pair of hot shoes that cannot be dyed BUT, they do match my gloves, so it will be fine.

My wedding bands are ordered and in the process of being made (yay).

Now the only hurdle (major) is getting my mom out here, as plans changed unexpectedly late last night and now my mom needs to get a plane ticket ASAP....so once I can call her I will buy her ticket, so with any luck I will have her ticket purchase today.

phew....

now we have some other major puppy things that need to be done before the wedding too, like getting the little bugger groomed and then...fixed. Yup, that was me whisper typing "fixed" so he does not hear me, or know his fate. We want to get it done before the wedding and everyone visits and also done with enough time for him to heal between mean cheese visits as she won;t understand that he is sore and needs to not be poked, pulled, or screamed at.

SO that's that....oh, and I need to finish my taxes.

sigh

this is why I am up at night crying and having panic...it's all coming up so fast and truthfully I am not sure how it can all be done, on any level. Financially it's a lot....and we are having a teeny tiny little wedding, I am amazed every day that people can afford larger weddings at all and still manage to pay their bills, how do they do it? They must have super powers or something.

ok...babble, babble, babble...

with that I have to announce I am having a special sale in my shop to help ease the cost of the wedding and the puppy "procedure"

20% off everything in my shop and a free "reproduction print" with all purchases over $30, you just have to write "sale" and which print you would like in the message to seller and wait for me to send you a new invoice.

whoa! Lots to do, lots to do. You're reminding me of all the things I need to do too! I scored an awesome pair of wedding shoes for--ready? $9.98 on clearance at DSW...and I know what you mean about the uglies. Not a good selection out there if you want to pay less for the shoes than you did for the dress!

There there! You're so busy, and you just got over the flu. No wonder you're stressed! Sit back with a nice cup of tea and a cookie.

Good luck with the planning!

Happy Bubsaversary!! I can't believe it's been four years since the last time I saw you!! Crazy.

Don't stress about the wedding; it's supposed to be a good thing. Although that said, I don't know how anyone does it. They seem like mayhem to me. You'll be just fine, though. Enjoy it. xoxo

Congrats on your upcoming wedding, i'm sure it will be beautiful. Weddings are always beautiful :).

Your paintings above are simply gorgeous! I really like the one with the pink and orange, and the words in the bg. Such fantastic colour contrast, and i really like the texture to the bg. Awesome work :)
