Here Comes the Bride!

Thetimehascomeandournearlytwoyearengagementisoverandherewego – I’m getting married on Saturday!

As someone who never really thought I’d get married and figured I’d elope to Vegas if I did, the fact that I’m having this relatively traditional wedding and reception is a little strange to me. But I think we made the right choice and I am so excited to marry my best friend in a room full of our loved ones!

Not our wedding cake but it should be!

This blog has come a long way from when I started it, back when I had just been dumped and was lonely and trying to fill some time. Now I’m so busy I can barely even post! Though you can be sure I’ll have a nice wedding-related post when I return.

And I’ll return a married woman! Also – GO CUBS!!!

This is The End

Well, I have an announcement.  I’m going to quit writing this here blog.

I know, I know, you’re devastated. I don’t love the idea myself but I’ve just been too damn busy to keep up with it. Between work, volunteering at the museum, working part-time with various programs at the museum, writing my freelance magazine articles, volunteering at the food pantry, sitting on a new committee at the food pantry and now planning a wedding, my plate is just too full.  Added to that is another announcement that I feel I should reveal – I’m pregnant!

It’s not exactly on the time frame Scott and I had in mind but we’re thrilled nonetheless. It’s going to be a crazy time and we’re freaking out in the best way possible but I have to kind of start focusing on this baby growing inside of me and oh god I can’t keep this up because it’s all a bunch of bullshit. Happy April Fool’s Day!  I imagine you may have picked up on this prank as I feel the pregnancy bit was taking it a little too far but I just couldn’t help myself. Although to be fair, if I really was pregnant I probably would quit with the blog but that would mostly be because I’d be crying in the corner of the one and only closet in our apartment, wondering how to fit a crib in the dining room. Thankfully, that is not currently a concern!

Nothing’s changing and I’ll try to continue posting as much as I can, when I can. I’ll be out of town all weekend celebrating Easter and looking at a potential wedding venue (my list of things keeping me busy was actually pretty accurate so maybe I’m the fool) and I’ll be offline for a few days. That said, I hope everyone has an April 1st void of vicious or embarrassing pranks and an Easter full of chocolate and deviled eggs. And I promise, that combination is not a pregnancy craving!
