The Ball

We're going! At first Mister told me we wouldn't be able to because tickets were no longer available. He told me he would make it up to me though. Well a little bit ago, he sent me a text telling me to get my dress ready. I was very confused at what he was talking about. Apparently, one of the guys s/o can't go, so he gave the ticket to Mister so I could come! Yay me!!

This will be my first (and last) ball so I really hope that everything goes perfectly!

Does anyone have any advice for me?

Found My Wedding Dress!

What a relief! There's only a little more than two months until we're married and I just now finally found my wedding dress. Boy has it made me that much more excited. It's really starting to sink in that I'M GETTING MARRIED! I can't wait to be his wife!

Wedding planning has been in full force lately. We started some DIY projects and cut others out. We wanted to make some cute lanterns for the tables, but they turned out to be extremely flimsy and quite ugly. Not exactly the look we're going for.

It's been hard planning though since Mister is currently away for training. We haven't spoken one another at all for the past couple days. As crazy as this might sound to a lot of you military significant others, it's actually the longest that we've gone without speaking. I'm doing fine. I find the hardest part about it is not being able to tell him about my day. I never realized how important that is to me.

It's crazy how little things can mean the world. I'm just blessed that we have been able to experience the things we have to get us to the point we are now. I honestly can say that things haven't been better. We're both just at a really great spot and have truly learned to communicate and appreciate one another. It's wonderful. Things are wonderful!

Pre-Deployment Pictures

I have been wanting to get pre-deployment pictures for a while now. Mister and I have the date where I'll be heading back to California for a visit, so I've been Googling away, trying to find a photographer. I'm desperate ladies, and I don't know why I haven't thought of posting this before. Does anyone know a photographer in the San Clemente/Oceanside area? If you do, comment me or send me a message via the contact link above!!

Winner, Winner!

I have found a new obsession... wedding blog contests. I have won three times already though so at least its not for nothing. So far I've won...

- a $75 giftcard to Blurb where I plan to make something like this:



- a Berry Ball so I can keep my bras in tip-top shape!



and...

- a hair flower from Thread Rare



I'm in line for a few more contests, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I'm REALLY hoping to win all of my save the dates, invitations, and menus. Maybe a little far fetched, but hey, a girl can dream when it comes to her wedding.
