    it has been very quiet.

    I've been busy with prepare for a sugery next week(yes I am def not looking forward of the recovery, never been good at lying in bed all day long). we've been to the bank about a pre approval for a morage and we got it, so our whole focus has been house hunter and crunch #'s. Plus I've been planning the AHR for mid July!

    How much is/was everyones budge for their AHR?

    what has everyone else been up too?

    taylorwd,
    sorry to hear your having problems with the cupcake person, but seems like everything else is falling in to play, so that's great!!!! It always feel good to get that 1 person (especially on those down days) that brings you right out of the bubble!!! I love ppl like that
    seems like you've got a lot acomplished, woohoo!!!! :)

    I'm right on with you, I feel lost in a since even tho we're on the next step of our lives. i still miss being a bride to be and the whole feeling of 'I'm getting married!!!!!"
    Aww well!!!
    actually my MOH is pregnant (she got knocked up by trying) on our wedding week. It's a little werid lol

        Now wait, I thought you WEREN'T planning your AHR. I thought you were only responsible for the cupcakes? Did you get roped into doing more?

        Our initial budget was $1000 but that turned out to be a bit naive, so now it's $2000. $600 of that is the party barge rental. LOL, well if DH were planning it we could probably do it for $1k, but I'm trying to make it as wedding-like for our guests as possible. Hence the cupcake tower with a cutting cake, flower table arrangement, banner and other decorations, etc.

          Oh trust me, I understand! I spent all last weekend doing AHR planning stuff (ours is the 26th too!), and I kept thinking to myself, "Damnit, I'm supposed to be done with all this!"

            It's soooo hot outside, and a party barge sounds like so much fun right now..... (daydreaming)

            Tracy - I hope your surgery goes well and that all your pain and frustration will go away. At least you have some good news about getting pre-approved for a mortgage and now you can go house shopping! Home shopping was so fun and exciting for us :) And I totally agree, I think it's a little odd that she got pregnant while trying during your wedding.

            We spent maybe $600 on our AHR.

            It's not that I feel lost after our wedding, but I do kind of miss being on that high. Now that I look back I wish I would have done a lot things differently and had not let DH talk me into not doing the things that would have made it really special for me. Stupid boys.

            We have seriously been non stop ever since we got home. We were really looking forward to the Memorial weekend thinking that we didn't have much going on and we could relax.... but a very good friend of ours passed away that week so we had to drive almost 4 hrs to her funeral on Saturday. Now we have a birthday party this Saturday for a long time family friend. It feels like it's never going to stop! We just need a breather for a bit and then the world can continue to turn. We never really got the chance to soak up the whole "oh we're married, lets enjoy being newly weds" thing.

            As of yesterday, we have been married 2 months! We're going to celebrate tonight by going to dinner and having a date night :) I'm really excited as we never have date nights, nor do we ever go out to eat for anything other then Taco Tuesday (yuck-o).

                YEEEEEEA love your pictures!! Your bouquet is gorgeous! I love the sunset pictures. I must say, you have seemed awfully patient waiting this long to get them. I don't think I would have been as calm as you!

                  I've been missing feeling like a bride lately. Anyone else? I don't miss the stress or planning, but I do miss being a bride! I have a friend who's just starting the wedding planning and I have to admit, I'm a bit jealous. LOL not of the trying months ahead but of that radiant, I'm-getting-married feeling.

                  I was so excited yesterday because I got to have a little bit of that when I went to the florist :) I had been dealing with our cupcake person all day (who's really making me angry) and wasn't in the best of moods. In addition to the cupcakes, I'm having a small cutting cake for our AHR and wanted to stop at a florist for a cake topper. The lady was soooooo nice and friendly and easy and everything we want our vendors to be but aren't! She was so excited for me and couldn't have cared less that all I wanted was a cake topper and a single vase arrangement. She treated me like I was having the grandest wedding and just overall made me smile. So I just wanted to share!

                  The AHR planning is moving right along! The menu is set, the slide show is done, the guestbook is figured out, and decorations are done. And I even think we found a cook! There's a grill on the party barge so we're thinking pork loin and chicken, but we didn't want to be stuck cooking, nor did we want to ask a friend to do it. Now all we have to figure out is what other kind of alcohol to have besides a keg. Hmmmm.....
                  It's been a ghost town for sure... I have to admit, I'm having a little bit of "wedding" withdrawal too. No weddings to attend or AHRs in the near future. So, no one to live vicariously through right now. I just keep watching our wedding video and going through the pictures (and of course, making my friends and family suffer through them too)!!

                  You will definitely have to share pics of your AHR with us!!

                    So, you finally got a surgery date... I sure hope things go well for you during and after surgery.

                    Your MOH got knocked up during your wedding week huh? That's so funny and weird at the same time.

                    I'm not having an AHR and haven't been up to too much except trying to get back to normal life. Oh, and hubby is finally moving in next weekend. Yay!!! So, I'm trying to make room for his stuff, since I have all of the closets in the house filled with my clothes! That's my project for this weekend.

                    You've made the 2 month mark already?! I guess I'm getting there myself too. I think the hubby and I need to get out for a date night soon too.

                      Thank you - i wouldn't say i've been patient - i sent a few emails to the photographer...apparently the internet connections in Jamaica make it difficult to upload the pictures to Pictage - they're still missing some of my TTD session - i sent her another note today. I was checking the site daily, even though I knew i'd get an email when they were up! i'm so happy they are finally here!!!!


                      I totally understand the missing feeling like a bride - I'm kind of glad it's over, but it was such a great feeling. Now we're known as "the newlyweds" so that's kind of nice too, though.

                      Jenna - we had a date night last night too - DH surprised me and took me to the city (that's New York City for us) and we went to some jazz clubs and had some Thai food. it was HOT but so nice to just go out and enjoy ourselves.
