Yesterday Rogelio and I went to the court house and had our civil marriage ceremony! We are now husband and wife! I am Mrs. Campos now! Yay!
Father Daughter dance
I loved her first
I finally got my invitations printed and put together.... They are diy invitations from Walmart. with the pics and the invites, I spent about 40 dollars total for 130 invitations!!!
I also made my card box. I got a shipping box at walmart and a yard and a half of a green and a net.... I had no idea what I wanted to do, but I sat down and started playing, and came up with this!
FH called and asked me to do him a huge favor and go to Safeway to get some things for his upcoming trip. I was a little suspicious and a little annoyed, because he was already out and about and my nephew was sleeping and I wasn't about to get him up. FH said not to worry, he would be at the house in 5 minutes. Yeah, he was probably just down the road.... lol! So I went, and my suspicion grew, I started dreaming of coming home to a rose or something romantic. He is leaving for a job for a few days, and I kinda wanted to have the ring before he left. We had looked at them yesterday... Anyway, he asked for very specific things, and that was strange to me too... 4 avocados... why 4??? Anyway. So I drove back and my heart sank and I got irked because I didn't see his truck in the driveway of my house. But I pulled up to the garage and saw a big sign that said 'Corrie do you merry me?'
Ok, so his English is not so good, and his spelling worse! But I was instantly taken into another reality. He opened the door and said 'do you see what that say?' I said 'yes, Por supuesto (of course!)' He said 'Entonces aceptas mi anillo? (then do you accept my ring?)' and dropped it on the ground.
We both laughed and he picked it up and I said 'yes'. All of the eloquence I had imagined that would flow from my lips was tied in a knot that stuck in my throat. He said 'Te pido que seas mi esposa y quiero compartir mi vida contigo. Te quiero mucho, y quiero compartir todo contigo por el resto de mi vida. (I ask you to be my wife and I want to share my life with you. I love you a lot and I want to share every thing with you for the rest of my life.)' I could barely make a noise. I could not stop smiling or hugging him. I said 'si quiero (yes I want to)' He put the ring on my finger, BTW, I wear a 7, the model size, I don't have to let the precious go to be sized!!!!!!!...
During this whole time, a friend of ours was taking pictures. It is a pretty, marquis diamond in white gold. I think it is a 1/4 carat... perfect size for my hand, and lifted enough to look good, but not catch on everything. I am so happy and so at peace... I didn't want to let him go, but he had to go home and sleep so he can get up early in the morning to go for the job. I am going to miss him a lot, but it will be sweet to have him back, then plow full force ahead into some serious wedding planning!!!
I am in search of the 'perfect' favor! I am compiling ideas, because it can't be too expensive, nor toooo involved. So here are some of my ideas!
If I have non-perishable food, like candy, I think it will be ok. Most people will be travelling either from Mexico or Tucson AZ anyway, so they won't really want to take a bunch of stuff home.
I also want to do a PINATA for the kids!!!!
I love making crafts, so I may make them myself.... Gotta decide if I want to spend my time on it though. I could get two when I go to get the rest of the stuff with my mom in Tucson.
More to come!!!!
