Hello Livejournal, I am alive....

Brandon is 10 months old today! :) I don't know why 10 months excites me so much, lol. 2 months until he's 1, which means 2 months and 1 day until our surprise anniversary cruise! I can post this here, Jim doesn't read it, hehehehe.

Yeah, this does not surprise me.

Merry Christmas everybody and Happy Birthday to me!  Yay!

Time goes by so fast

Amber turned 3 years old today, it seems like just yesterday I was pregnant wondering what I was going to next, and here she is, growing into such a big girl, I can't believe it.


Happy Halloween


Amber was going to be a black cat, but we tried the costume on two days ago, and it didn't fit, son of a.....  So we went shopping.  I didn't like anything at Halloween USA, so then we went to target.  I found the cutest Tinkerbell costume, but Amber said no, she wanted the Cinderella costume.  So we grabbed that and headed to the kids section to find a shirt to go underneath, and we walked by the cutest U of M dress, that looks like a cheerleader.  Needless to say we snuck away the Cinderella costume and she is going as a U of M cheerleader.  She is going to be the cutest kid ever!  And she's going trick-or-treating with her cousin, Devin, he's going as Scooby Doo, they are the cutest kids.  Pictures will come later.  Happy trick-or-treating to all!

I have to say it, what the fuck??

In 9 days, at 3:30pm, I will be standing behind a door, waiting to take the first steps toward the beginning of a new life.  A life of trials and tribulations, none of which will seem so tough with someone so perfectly suited for me always standing by my side.  Its amazing how far I've come, not just with him, but as a person, since the day  I left my parents house one late night in September 2003.  How young and naive I was.  Believing everything a man said to me, believing everything would work itself out because he loved me.  Ha.  I don't look back with bitterness, but with wisdom and understanding.  You have to make your own mistakes, and I've made my share, I know this, but they've made me a better person.  God knows there are days when I wish I could take it all back, be that 18 year old at Eastern, and stay, finish college, do something with my life.  Then I realize, I have done just that, my life is amazing.  I have not just a house, but a home, with an amazing man who is everything I've ever dreamed of.  I have a daughter who has a real father, biological or not, and that little girl is everything to me.  I have the love and support of my friends and family.  I have just about everything a woman could ask for.  It's amazing to just sit and think about the past sometimes.  I used to resent everything I've ever done that didn't turn out for the best.  But now I realize, if it weren't for those hard times, I wouldn't be where I am now, and I wouldn't know how to appreciate everything I have.

I've been asked so many times in the last couple weeks if I'm nervous.  But I don't get it.  If you're nervous, doesn't that mean you have doubts that this is the person you should be with?  And if you have doubts, shouldn't you be reconsidering marrying this person?  Of course I'm not nervous, I'm living my dream here.  Every dream I've ever had for my life, is coming true, right before my eyes.  How can I be nervous when I'm 100% sure that this is the man I want to spend every second of the rest of my life with?  Ha, screw nervousness, I'm excited.  I can't wait to stand at the end of the aisle and see him at the end, beaming from ear to ear, waiting for me.  I can't wait to spend the first 6 hours of my married life, eating, socializing, and dancing the night away.  I can't wait to hope that plane to Jamaica and spend a week basking in the sun, and playing in the sand and water, with nothing to worry about except what to do the next day, and how I look for dinner.  I'm excited to spend the rest of my life with a man who makes me feel like nobody ever has.  So no, I'm not nervous, everything but!

The last couple weeks, and this week coming up, have been so busy.  I've been a terrible friend the last few months, but can you blame me?  I'm a busy gal, lol.  There will be many many pictures to post upon my return October 1st from Jamaica.  I don't know what else to talk about.  Given how long it has been since I've given a real update I feel like I should have more...but I don't.  So yeah, that's all for now folks.


Can somebody recommend a good tattoo parlor to me? I want to get a tattoo, but I'm afraid to go to one that isn't very good and have them mess it up. Help me please!
