So annoyed.

I don't know what it was, but somehow I pulled a muscle/rotated a disc/something happened to my back while at work. I was pouring strawberries into separate containers at work and then bent down to put them in the freezer. A few minutes later I went out to wash the windows and tried to bend over, and pain just totally stopped my movement. I can't put my finger on which of those activities did it, but now here I am stationary on the couch ALL DAY. It was feeling okay yesterday but sleeping on it was extremely uncomfortable and left me feeling pretty bad.

Hopefully it clears itself up quickly, because I have a lot of stuff coming up next week!

My would-have-been wedding.

Today would have been my wedding day. I've been wondering all week what I would have been doing, how I would have been feeling, and it's been a really strange feeling. Maybe I would have been having breakfast with my bridesmaids right now, and then on our way to get our hair done, or nails, or make-up. I would probably be totally nervous and freaking out right now.

A few months ago I was really struggling with changing our date, and if this day had come back then I think I would be a wreck over it. But right now, I'm at peace. I'm happy about our new date. It is still really far off, but I know that overall it will be better for us to have this time to finish school, to save money, and to continue planning.

It's still a weird feeling to try and picture myself walking down the aisle today. I least I know the weather would have been beautiful. Maybe even a little too hot. The ceremony would be starting in about 5 hours. That's so crazy!

I just can't wait until June 25 gets here. For now, I'll enjoy the planning process - and engaged life, of course!

More house stuff!

I actually cleaned something and took some pictures of our living room! For now they will serve as "before" pictures due to the severe lack of decor and, sadly, color. Mark is very into black, and I like a lot of black and white myself, but I'm a color person too and we definitely need SOME room of the house to stand out with a little color! (you'll see what I mean when I get more pictures on here).






The second to last picture is funny; you can see the bottom half of my kitty running into his blue playground thing which I neglected to have in the picture because it is SO battered and ugly :)

The two shelves on the wall came with the place. Notice all the black (like I said, we like black but it's getting a little ridiculous). Black couch, black tv stand, black tv, black shelving....black everything. The walls are tan/neutral in every room and we aren't allowed to paint, but they did say we can hang up whatever we want on the walls so we'll see what I can manage (and what budget will allow, of course!)

Tomorrow Mark has orientation for school and then we are going to go to Ikea to look for a new kitchen table! When I post the "before" kitchen pictures you will see what we're working with....very small, but cute nonetheless.

I am loving this house.

Some house pictures!

Okay - so I finally managed to get a FEW pictures of the house so far. We are planning on staying here for at least 2 years so there will definitely be some decor/new stuff added to it as soon as we can afford it!

Closer up (don't mind the tiredness! it was a long haul)



Moving all our stuff inside with Mark's sister!

I also just took some pictures last night of our living room area, but unfortunately the camera died so I will have to post those later! I'll try to get more of the other rooms of the house too but of course we're always kind of messy. haha.

Boo! Need to post more...

I haven't posted ANY pictures or anything at all about the new house! I am planning on doing that today. I need to get to cleaning some stuff and then pictures there will be!
