News...

Okay, I've been bad... really bad...

I have not posted in over a month! And I have not even been able to see many other posts recently either :(

But I swear I have a reason.  Well, several reasons.  Although it is no excuse, my full-time graduate program has officially gotten the best of me.  I am going to try and post at least a couple of times a month, but until I graduate in May, I will not be able to be as active :(

In addition to the craziness of school.... I have some very very good new.....

I GOT ENGAGED!!!


My beautiful Tiffany setting - he has good taste! :)

Back in the day pic... 

Yes, David proposed! As a result I have found myself in a sea of wedding madness.  I did not realize how much planning these things involved! Don't get me wrong, I am thrilled to be marrying my best friend, but my god is it expensive! And of course, both David and I have HUGE families and our guest list is already well over 150.  So basically, 150 guests = $$$$$.

As I said, although I will be very crazy this semester finishing up grad school and planning the big day, I promise to try and get back in the swing of things.  And if I don't, I give you all permission to yell at me! ;) Pin It

  14. A word of advice from someone who's worked many large weddings: ELOPE! That's how Mr. C and I did it, and it's seriously the best thing ever. No worries, no time wasted, no headaches! Best of all, our "wedding" cost $90 flat - you know, for the marriage licence :)
