Recommended Posts

I’m new to this forum but this will be year #4 for hubby and I. I miss wedding planning something terrible! I had so much fun with it.

We’ve bought our house about 6 months after the wedding. Then I was TTC crazy we got preggo around the same time. We had our daughter…after 3 boys she HAD BETTER been a girl. *LOL*

We’re just settling into our everyday marriage routine at this point. My good friend is getting married June of 2010 and I’m one of her MOH so I’m happy to be back to planning something bridal. Since we married in Vegas and not many people could come we are planning a renewal here at home in 2012. My hubby wants another son but geez we have 4 kidz I’m more than happy with that! Plus, I’ll be 40 next year, I’m ready to be done having babies.

Katrina~ how was your cruise?

 

Nothing much new with me. Still house hunting. I'm starting to get really frustrated with it. When I do find something we like its already under contract and we've missed it by like a week. So annoying. And, I can't get people to STOP telling dh that we should offer 40,000 under asking because if we make an offer that is accepted we will always feel like we could've gotten the house for less. I will NOT feel like that. I WANT them to accept our offer because I actually WANT to live in the freakin house. UGH. I think this is a terrible strategy and I plan on changing our game plan on the next one.

 

The good news (slightly good) is that we've found a house that has been foreclosed on in our ideal neighborhood. It is not yet listed on the market. I called the agent who will be listing it and he said he will give me a call BEFORE it gets listed publicly to let me know how much it will be so we can be the first offer in on it if it ends up in our price range. The appraisal is getting done by the bank this week and it should be listed by next week.

 

So, keep your fingers crossed for me that this one might work out.

Oh, I almost totally forgot that I am doing something exciting. I'm taking 4 college summer courses that start on Monday. Yup, FOUR. I'm hoping I haven't bitten off more than I can chew. But I'm excited to get 4 classes completed in such a short period of time. :)

I haven't been on the forum long or overly active on it but am now married! I didn't have an overly fancy wedding or tons of detail put in to it but I so miss the whole process. I wouldn't change a thing about it but sometimes wish I could do it over again knowing what I know now :) I do have tons of post wedding things to clear up like photobooks, thank yous and finally reorganizing my spare bedroom that was used for weddging stuff. But I am still finding it really hard to get my mind back on track. I thought, ok after the wedding I'll be able to focus because I won't have the wedding to think about, but now it is hard coming back to reality. I am glad I found this thread :)

Good luck Kelly! I hope you get this house. I know that has been a big point of frustration for you both.

 

I always loved summer classes. It seemed like I needed the fast pace and the extra push to do well.

Thanks girls! So far I have had three days of classes. They aren't difficult yet, but there is alot of homework. There almost aren't enough hours in the day to get it all done. I like the fast pace of the summer classes too. Last summer I took one and it was an easy A for me. I'm hoping these turn out to be the same.

 

It looks like it will be another week before we hear anything on the asking price of the house. The wait is killing me. If I wasn't so busy with school I would just daydream about living in that house all day long! lol

I'm finally in this club! Woo hoo!

 

Kelly, my fingers are crossed for you, that's so exciting!

 

I can honestly say that I am so over wedding planning and have done absolutely nothing since we've gotten home for our AHR this Saturday. It'll all come together. Part of me wishes I had a little more planning time for it, but I know I'll be happy in the end that we did it right away.

 

Since I was like the last-standing virgin bride, none of my friends want to hear about the wedding. They just say, so how was the sex? Hey, maybe when people start with the baby questions (we don't want kids), I'll just tell them that I'm still learning. I absolutely hate how nosy people are with that.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
