A Rambling of Updates

Well I don't want everyone to think that I was “blowing smoke” or anything, but I did want to update you on the status of us buying the home. Jeremy and I did allot of talking and allot of thinking over the last couple weeks and we both made a decision to forgo buying the house. We wanted to make sure that we didn't get into something that we wished we wouldn't have, so that I why we decided to not buy the home. It was a hard decision since we both love the home so much, but we also know that we don't want to do something that will put a strain on our marriage and our life. We are both aware that buying a house is a huge decision to make and a huge financial burden. That is why we will wait a little longer before buying a home. Jeremy had suggested that we wait, to look for a home, until he is done with school. This way we will both be able to focus on buying a home and when we do find one we will be completely ready to make that “move.”

I want to thank everyone that helped us and supported us, it was a very difficult decision for us to make, but with the support that we had, it was a huge help. And after Jeremy and I made the decision to not buy the home, you could totally see a look of relief wash over him. It was great, I had the 'old Jeremy' back (the one with a lot less stress in his life).

So as far as that goes, we are good with that choice. Wedding plans are going really well. I have started working on the programs and the invitations are pretty much done, they will just need to be printed and “assembled” - any volunteers to help assemble the invitations are welcomed.

Jeremy and I booked part of our honeymoon today. You will probably be surprised by what we ended up picking. We are going on a Mexican Baja cruise. It is a 4 day cruise out of LA that will stop in Ensenada Mexico and Catalina Island California, it will leave the Monday after the wedding, so we are going to fly out to LA the day before and stay a day after the cruise so that we can check out the sites that LA has to offer. I don't know what I am more excited about: the cruise or going to LA. : ) Yippee! I am amazed that we were actually able to make a decision, we went from one thing to the next. Let's just say that our travel agent had her work cut out for her, working with us. Saturday I will go to the travel agency to book our hotel in LA and our flight. Hopefully everything will go as planned.

Just yesterday (Wednesday, June 18th) was our 4 month count down. I can't believe how the time has flown by, yet it seems like forever ago since we got engaged. I am so excited, I can't wait for our wedding day. I am super excited. Monday June 23rd will be our 6 year anniversary. Can you believe it; 6 years! That is a long time dating. I am so happy though.

There was one potential mishap that you can always count on, anytime you are planning/having a wedding... Our bridesmaid dresses came in, in the wrong color. They were chocolate brown with a champagne sash, opposite of what it was supposed to be. I tried to make it work, but with the guys chocolate brown tuxes, it didn't look good, especially since the 2 browns didn't match. So they kindly reordered the dresses and we should have the correct one in with time to spare. So hopefully there aren't too many other potential mishaps. I could deal with that one but I don't want to have to deal with too many more. : P

My mom and sister have started planning for the bridal shower, that should be a nice time. I don't know many of the details, but I know it will be lovely.
Well for now, I guess that is all the rambling I have to do. If I think of some other stuff to mention to you, I will be sure to share.
