For the Love of Marriage Licenses

MyMr and I had a lovely time getting our marriage license yesterday. When you read the word "lovely," think PURE sarcasm.

Here is how it goes:

I went to work for a couple of hours and left for a long lunch to go get our licenses. MyMr stayed home to sleep in a bit and was going to go into work late. As I am leaving work to go to pick him up, I call. No answer. At that point, I knew he was either still sleeping or in the shower.

Then, the next thought in my head is "OH CRAP! I FORGOT TO PRINT AND FILL OUT THE PAPERWORK." Oh dear. I was running a little late, but I figured I should have enough time to print out the paperwork at home and fill it out in the car on the way down.

Then, I try to call myMr again. Still no answer. At this point I am about 2 minutes away from him. I call again and finally he answers. Yep... he was still sleeping.

Oh well, no biggie, he gets ready quickly.

So, I get home and run to my parents office (the only room with a printer) in order to print out our paperwork. To my surprise, I find a locked door. I have no key. What the eff?! My parents NEVER lock that door... but it just-so-happens that when I desperately need it open, it is locked.

Crap. We are running late AND we have no paperwork. FANTASTIC.

Oh wait... it gets better.

We rush to the car to go drive to the courthouse to get our license. We park the car and walk to the building. We stand in a line to get in because they are performing xrays on all belongings. Then, we go and speak with the information lady to see where we are supposed to go...

... Sure enough, we were at the wrong place. We were at the place where you visit juvees in jail, have jury duty, etc. Sweet.

So, since parking is pretty bad in that area, we decide to walk to the correct building... 3 blocks away in 100+ degree weather.

Good Lord!

We finally arrive 30 min fashionably late for our appointment. The lady then informs us that we MAY have to make another appointment. ARE YOU SERIOUS?!

There is a good ending to this story, though. The people at the county recorders office had hearts and took us anyway. Sure enough, they were able to provide us with the paperwork. We filled it out, turned it in, paid the $50 bucks, and now... we can OFFICIALLY get married!!!

Hallelujah I love a good ending!

Did anyone else have a crazy experience getting their marriage license?

Take care until next time,

Home Sweet Home

Well, with 19 days until the wedding, we MAY have found a place to live!!

MyMr and I found this fabulous townhouse near my work!! The only thing that is not so fabulous... The flaming pinkish-purple walls in the master bedroom and the mildew in the bathrooms. Gahh!!

We are notifying them that we are interested in the place if they let us take a paint brush to the master bedroom and if THEY hire someone to scrub it free of mildew!!!

Cross your fingers!!!

Take care until next time,

Hi, My name is HisMrs...

... and I am the WORST blogger in the history of the world!

Please forgive me.

These past couple of weeks have been crazy with little wedding details. I am definitely making progress though!

Man, you guys don't even know how many posts that I have to read in reader. And, on top of that, I have about a gazillion posts starred that I have read that I need to make comments on. I promise I will catch up though!

I finally booked our florist!!!!!! Thank GOD! Here is the price breakdown:

My bouquet (hand tied, all white roses, no greenery, wrapped in white ribbon).... $125 (HOLY CRAP, right!? So much money for a bouquet, but I really wanted mine to look professional.)

Flower girl petals (green and white rose petals for the flower girl.... 2 boxes for $40 (We should have a lot extra for the aisle too)

Boutonnieres (white roses w/ no greens, white wrap, for groom, groomsmen, jr. groomsman, ring bearer, dads, and grandparents)... 12 @ $8 ea total=$96

Corsages (wrist w/ pins of 2 white roses and babies breath white ribbon, for moms and grandmas)... 8 @ $17 ea total=$136

Extra flower petals (green and white petals)... 2 boxes @ $20 ea total=$40

Grand Total=$475.24

I don't think these are the best prices we could have gotten but I don't think the damage was too bad. We still are making the bridesmaid bouquets and jr bridesmaid bouquets ourselves.

Check out our DIY babys breath bouquets here!!!

Ok, I promise I will be better about posting next week. Don't hate me!!! :)

Take care until next time,

Best conversation ever...

Me: So I think I decided to get waxed for our honeymoon!


Haha. Thanks for all of your great advice! I think I have decided to go ahead and do it!! You only live once, right?!?!

So, in other news... I have decided to join a softball league at work. Since I have joined a softball league, you would think that I have had lots of experience with it before. Think again. This girl has zero hand eye coordination!! I did gymnastic, cheer and dive growing up. There were no balls involved in any of those sports!!! Hahaha what have I gotten myself in to?!?! Our first game is tonight! Wish me luck. Geeze. I can't even catch a ball. I know how to duck really well but catching us a different story! I hope I don't die! Haha

If I decide to do it, how many days before the wedding should I get it done?

Thanks for all the help!!! :)

To wax or not to wax... That is the question

Ok, let's get a little personal here. I am HEAVILY debating whether or not to get the "Honeymoon Wax."

MyMr would probably be pleasantly surprised, but not gonna lie, I am a little shy. Yes, I said it, I am a little shy. Am I worried about it hurting? Sure. A little. But it will only hurt briefly. I am much more scared about having another woman looking at my chacha.

Have you ever waxed? Did it hurt? Was it a good or bad experience? Do you recommend it for a first timer for her honeymoon?

Ring Bearer Pillow

There are SO many different styles of ring bearer pillows out there now-a-days.

There is Paloma's Nest for adorable (but oh so fragile for my 5 year old ring bearer) ring bearer bowls.

They are ADORABLE, but I certainly do not trust my ring bearer with it.

For us, we are taking the more traditional approach to a ring bearer pillow. My Martha Stewart Mom took on this task herself.

She has an embroidery machine, and stitched our names and wedding date into the pillow.

The back of the pillow has a handle for the ring bearer.

Ahhh... I love it. She is so creative, it is ridiculous.

What kind of ring bearer pillow are you going to have?

Take care until next time,

The Menu

This past weekend, myMr and I got to finalize our menu for the wedding.

We got to taste lots of delish food, but we finally came to a decision.

We will have ceasar salad to start off with. This ceasar salad isn't your typical salad. The dressing has a little hint of spice in it. DELISH!!!

Then for the actual meal, we will have:

Baked Ziti with Spicy Italian Sausage

Chicken Marsala

Scalloped Potatoes

Steamed Veggies

Are you drooling yet?

I was contemplating doing a budget breakdown. Would y'all be interested in seeing how much we spent in each area of our wedding?
