A little of this a little of that!

So I am sitting in the car last night with my wonderful fiance and he turns to me and asks... "when are you going to update your blog it's been awhile?" I was like well maybe tonight I don't know I mean I really haven't felt well and I don't really have to much to report but I am sure I can find something to write about.
I guess in my last blog I mentioned we had set a date for the wedding ect. Well as most already know I had a slight freak out/breakdown and have just decided to do Justice of the Peace. I want to have a big party though for all my family and friends so we can celebrate. We have changed the date to Friday Feb. 26th on Saturday Chris and I will head to the Ft. Worth Stock Yards to take some newly wed pictures with my wonderful friend Heather with Chunky Monkey Photography. Chris is so excited he loves the Stock Yards and I know this will be a super fun place for us to do some cute pictures. So for those of you who had cleared your schedule for the 27th of Feb. sorry I don't mean to disappoint but honestly I can't handle putting a wedding together and I need something low key and simple.
I know my sisters are disappointed they had such wonderful ideas but I do hope to use them for our wedding celebration. Jenny sent me some awesome invites to use so I can't wait to use those. I also know Jordan and Jenny have a signature drink they want to use so I am sure they can't wait to put that all together either. As for registering I am really getting to it. I have had a few people ask already but I am going to register at my fave place.... Target!!
I have been sick off and on for about 10 days now and finally starting to feel like I am getting back to normal. I love having Chris here to take care of me on the weekends. Unfortunately he has weekend duty next weekend so it will be a quiet weekend with just Sean and I. I am sure he will love having mommy all to himself. Or maybe he will just love having the Wii and Xbox ha ha.
The kids are doing great at school and at home. They are always busy and up to something. Hannah and Ella have a skating competition in Plano the weekend of Valentines day. Once I get that schedule I will post it on here and FB so that those interested can come watch.
Well like I said not much to report for now. Sorry so short and boring. Maybe more soon. Hope everyone is doing well and has a fantastic week. Well I am super sleepy and off to bed. Night all!

Here comes the...................

Yes if you fill in the blank correctly that would be bride. Since around Christmas Chris and I have been discussing whether or not we should wait till after his next deployment to get married or just do it now. After talking to much debate and talking to family we decided why not do it now, that along with other news on Chris' end has help us decide this is for the best for us. To dispel any rumors also no we are not expecting that's not why we are pushing up the wedding.
After spending the last few days myself just contemplating after some recent issues also I figured that I needed to just buckle down and start making plans and get the ball rolling on this. Tonight I sat down and said that's it we want to get married in February since after that it gets busy with birthdays and my sister Jenny's wedding. I also did not want to overshadow her wedding either. So tonight I emailed my family and said give me your addresses and clear the date Chris and I are getting married Feb 27th! Since I sent that out I have been overwhelmed with responses. That's why its taking forever to do this blog tonight.
I love that my sisters have been emailing me with wonderful ideas! I love the fact they are so into this. My aunt and my cousins have also been full of ideas also! So I have a amazing photographer set, My cousin Julie will officiate the wedding, I have my aunts house for the festivities, My sisters have picked out signature drinks and have come up with a yummy menu, Chris and I have picked out and purchased our wedding bands, so now all I need to do is find a dress, pick out some flowers, get some music together, and figure out the other pieces to this and make sure its exactly how Chris and I want this.
Our plan is to take the Friday before and Monday after off for this wedding stuff. I am excited, nervous and scared thinking about all of this. Why do you ask would I be scared and nervous.... Well a month ago my divorce was final and today would have marked mine and Jason's 8 year wedding anniversary. I know that this time is so much different but still those fears linger in the back of my mind. I know how happy we will be and we will have a wonderful life together. I am excited about our new life and all that is to come. Everyone has given us such wonderful advice and I am thankful for all of it.
Now its time for me to wrap this up. I need some sleep and time to talk to my man! I hope to start blogging a bit more now that this wedding is coming up. Hope everyone had a wonderful New Years. I know we did. Good night all!
