Just wanted to check in with everyone. Seems like our boards have been a little slow :(
What is going on with everyone? How is planning going?
I'm starting to get a little anxiety, i have to send out the invites this week and because of the trip going to see my husband i'm late. on top of that i don't know most of the peoples address that are on my guest list so I'm forced to ask my grandma, mom, and his side of the family which takes even longer for everyone to get back to you. I have about 50 done. only about 100 more to go!
I wish the boards wern't so slow myself. i check them everyday there is just nothing to say that i haven't already said :)
I have dress alterations next month too, I really need to lose all the weight i can. I lost 10 pounds but i can't seem to lose anymore. it's crunch time. no more pop, at all! for the rest of the month and.....and, NO MORE STARBUCKS! i might die!
I'm leaving my homestate tomorrow to move to be with my fiance! He's been stationed in Georgia for two years and I'm finally going out there. It's been 80 days since we've seen each other, so we're incredibly excited. Not to mention that he just got taken off his November/December deployment. Things are good (especially because he now gets to actually help me do things with our wedding!)
jonniethm- addresses are such a nightmare! It was next to impossible to get FI to track some down- I almost killed him. Hahaha. How was your time with DH?
jeslynn- moving and no deployment! How exciting!!! congrats to both of you :)
I am still anxiously awaiting FI coming home. I was sworn into the bar on Monday- which means I am a real lawyer now :) It stinks that FI missed it, it is so hard that he is never here for anything. I can't wait until a time when we can actually share things and celebrate our accomplishments together.
we had good news yesterday about his redeployment date. He should be coming home earlier than anticipated :) Still waiting on official word though. I expect to hear in the next couple weeks!!
mh123 my time with my husband was bitter sweet. it sucked because we spent the whole time looking for apartments and then i found out he's getting shipped in august of 2010 for afgahnastan, we fought a little just cause it's stressful. sometimes it seems hopeless but we are both willing to work so hard, he is really caring about the wedding and acting more excited and i am working on getting someone to rent out our home so i can at least go out there for a couple of months before he gets shipped off without going into debt.
im about to strangle him with the addresses too but he is finally getting it done and said he would have all of them by friday.
i gotta love them man but the military is a strain.
I'm here!!!! Checking in!!!
jonniethm- so sorry to hear about the deployment- that really stinks. I know it is all because of stress, but it drives me crazy that we also bicker right around deployment time- we should enjoy our time together, but instead we argue over the stupidest things. Its terrible.
wildfire- congrats!!! did you have a wedding recap that I missed? what about pro pics?
i'm here too, checking in! i feel like i'm not a military bride yet...and i won't really experience the life until after we are married, but i like that there are other women out there who understand how i feel! :)
currently matt, my midshipman, and i are in columbia, mo waiting until may 2010 when he is commissioned in the usmc. we are well into our planning-just taking care of fun details now.
I'm here...just have been busy with school..ive got a scientific research paper outline due wednesday and a the paper itself has to be 6 pages single spaced along with an 18 minute power point presentation..those are due nov 4 and ive got an organic chem midterm comin up...the hubby just changed units cuz he's not deploying and the new unit is retarted and not organized so hes basically just sitting on his butt feelin useless every day and that really gets to him...so in turn it gets to me and makes me depressed for him...im at a lil bit of a standstill with wedding stuff cuz my photographer is finishing our E pics and im using those for both our STD's and our invites so once she gets those to me i can work on that stuff!! Hopefully gonna go bridesmaid dress shoppin this week!! Whew.that was one long update...hope all you ladies are doin well...a bunch of our friends just deployed so im sure lots of you ladies are dealin with the same!!! :)
oh boy I'm praying we'll have the money to pay for this wedding FI and I got into an argument over this last week i'm just stressin about it but I know things will turn out fine. Other than that things are fine we did some DIY engagement shots this weekend with the help of hie brother I'l post some when we get them back from him but so far what I saw on the camera they came out really good.
