- Almost Three Years of Marriage 5 y
Almost three years... Our marriage is the weathering the storm of economic tumult in America. We’re beginning to dig ourselves out of the financial hole of nursing school, my mother’s cancer situation,etc.
Now I’m beginning to pester my husband to have a baby...my biological clock is starting to rev up. I think that’s why I’m going back to mostly rawfoods.

- Ho-hum...a real fight. First one. Ever. 7 y
Had a titanic falling out with my husband over the jalopy car. Feeling angry. Feeling angry over feelings of being held back because of money. Made mistake of looking at my bank account. Am cutting up National Pity card and living off of cash only. Still have to take out payday loan. Maybe. I’m trying to keep a lid on my emotions in order to prevent fibroidal spotting. I was doing so well. Maybe I’m under spiritual attack. Maybe. visit the page

- If You Want My Input...a whiskey tango foxtrot moment 7 y
Sometimes when I tell my coworkers I have to call my husband and see if it’s okay to work late, they howl and laugh at me. My supervisor says to me, Make sure you call your husband and see if it’s okay first! I did that a lot in the beginning of our marriage because I didn’t feel it was right to spend a lot of time away from my new husband. Plus, working 11-7 overnight shifts means away all night and driving home in the morning tired (actually I’m pretty wired at that time!). It’s not that I’m asking permission, I’m just asking for my husband’s input into my life. There’s only been one tim ... read more

- let's talk about money honey! 8 y
I’m going to talk about how I’m doing with finances since I’ve been married. It’s been a little over a month now. Today my husband and I had a near trainwreck with an overdrawn checking account. Plus, I was grocery shopping and I did a very stupid thing. I put back the two pack of papertowels and I still needed one dollar extra to pay for all my groceries that added up to $39. I was ashamed that all I had to spend on groceries was a little money and it seemed at the time people were looking...I used my debit card to put the extra four dollars instead of putting back some of the groceries. ... read more

- Post-Wedding Breakdown 8 y
I returned from my honeymoon in France Sunday night. I’m experiencing a measure of jetlag. It’s actually ’jet wakefulness’ since I’d be awake in France right now. I began to think about all the little things other bride-to-be’s would appreciate knowing. Let me start with wedding dresses first and all the things that brides go through, are put through, are sold a bill of lies,etc.
Number one thing to keep in mind when shopping for the ideal wedding dress is whether you will be able to afford the alterations. I did not get a custom made dress. I bought mine at http://www.twc-commack.com ... read more

- David's Bridal...thumbs down 8 y
It’s good to go to at least three places to look for a beautiful bridal gown. I went to one place in Old Brookville, Iman Bridal Couture. What a snooty ass owner. Oh well, it was Old Brookville I should have known. She looked at me crosseyed when I said my budget was $3000 (that was a lie...my budget was nonexistant). The dresses STARTED at $2500 and the more expensive they were, the UGLIER they were.
Moving on...David’s Bridal had some pretty dresses but the material was CHEAP. CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP. Plus it reminded me of going to a sample sale at Century 21 department store. I saw the si ... read more

- Need to Walk (updated info) 8 y
I woke feeling fat, sloppy and depressed. Feeling very woefully inadequate to the task of getting married. I really need to get it together today. I have a lot of work to do. I’m not happy at this minute. Too many things depressing me.
*My fiance called. Hearing the sound of his voice made me very happy. I got a burst of energy also. I know that he loves me no matter what, always telling me ’stop it!’ whenever I whine about how fat my belly is. I’m just going to do whatever needs to be done in terms of cleaning today. I’m off to clean and pack my honeymoon bags. visit the page

I’m up late because I consumed a caffeinated beverage from a certain coffee establishment that shall remain nameless. I will say that I managed to finish my wedding music playlist. I’m a bit irritated that I can’t play all the music I want to hear and dance to because I have to accomodate everyone else :( Maybe I’m just tired or something.
I am getting a little depressed. I hope that all goes well as resonably as can be expected from a well planned wedding. I hope that my fiance and I will have a good life. I’d be happy if my dress fits and my chicken wing arms don’t show at this point. ... read more

I uttered a cussword to my fiance when I was angry at him last night. I didn’t use directly AT him, as in you effing m*o*o*n but I used the f word in an angry fashion. Of course he didn’t like it and reminded me that he’s never talked to me that way. That’s true. I wanted to instantly defend myself but I knew what I did was very wrong. I was not raised with parents who curse. Anyway, I was already stressed with my mother’s non-stop nagging this past weekend or actually on Friday up till the very time I had to drop my sister to the airport. I still have the pain in my shoulders and neck and ... read more

- bikram bride at home 8 y
Here’s how YOU yes YOU the reader can do bikram yoga at home. You’ll need:
1 closet door mirror
1 heater (two if you are not going to use the sauna suit)
-got mine for $32 from National Wholesale Liquidators in West Hempstead. Check out discount places in your area because the big box stores have NO heaters. I know. I went to at least four of the major ones around my nabe.
1 sauna suit (got mine from Walmart for less than ten dollars)
1 room thermometer (Bionaire from Bed Bath and Beyond for $20... I used shower money to get it!)

I promise I’ll get pics up here somehow. I didn’t take any but there is a video so maybe I can get some stills or something up here eventually...keyword eventually ;o) Anyway, the shower was great. Great because I got a lot of gifts AND CASH. Yes I know it sounds petty BUT having my fiance there and then getting gifts made it all better. My mother introduced us and we said opening prayers. After that, my mom made a very brief speech. I started crying and buried my face in my fiance’s arm. He thinks it’s so cute! HEH.
I am able to buy a heater for my room to do my bikram yoga. I got real ... read more

- Bridal Shower games??? 8 y
So technically my shower is happening now! I’m waiting for my fiance to get home with his sister and nephew. He sounded a bit irritated over the phone. Oh well. No one could be more irritated right now than me. I sincerely hope this is over fast and I’m not forced to play any insipid shower games. The only one that seems interesting is the one where they make a wedding dress out of toilet paper or gift wrap. I wish I didn’t have my period otherwise I’d not be so aggravated.
Why can’t one make a wedding dress out of duct tape? Just wondering. visit the page

- Wedding Do's and Don'ts 8 y
What you are about to read are things to do and not to do at your wedding. Some of the information comes from professional etiquette guides and other information comes from what we’ve learned through the years. So if you want to pull this day off the PROPER way keep reading. If you don’t fancy etiquette rules, FB has given you a few suggestions.
If you don’t want children at your wedding, you have 2 options:
* When addressing your invitations, leave the children’s names off it and also don’t mention them in the invitation.
* Have friends and family pass the word ... read more

- Bridal registries....ugh! 8 y
Here’s my one piece of advice. Do not forget to put your bridal registry cards into your shower invitations!!!! My mind was so far from getting gifts that I did not put any into my invites. My shower isn’t a surprise since my mom is working a lot and needed me to do them. Anyway, actually getting gifts has turned around my attitude about getting registered for things. It’s FUN to get things.
