Hi…

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

My name is Nicole, and I’m a bad blogger. It’s been two weeks since my last post. Oops.

But, my wedding was featured on A Practical Wedding (you know, the place I spent most of my time reading during the planning process and now still.)

So, you should go read. It’s about not loving your wedding. And it’s awesome, if I do say so myself.

And, I promise to blog. Cross my heart and hope to die. K?

Sorry.

I’m being crappy about posting, but that’s mainly because we’re at the end of the first semester.

Give me another week, and I’ll be back on the ball.

I have many things to post about. And this will all take place over the weekend. Please be prepared for a lot of reading on Monday. K? Thanks.

For now, I will leave you with this lovely song. I’m trying to convince Chet we should dance to this, as our first dance. It’s pretty.

If I caught the world in a bottle
And everything was still beneath the moon
Without your love would it shine for me?

If I was smart as Aristotle
And understood the rings around the moon
What would it all matter if you love me?

Here in your arms where the world is impossibly still
With a million dreams to fulfill
And a matter of moments until the dancing ends.

Here in your arms when everything seems to be clear
Not a solitary thing would I fear
Except when this moment comes near the dancing’s end.

If I caught the world in an hourglass
Saddled up the moon so we could ride
Until the stars grew dim
Until…

One day you’ll meet a stranger
And all the noise is silenced in the room
You’ll feel that you’re close to some mystery.

In the moonlight when everything’s shadows
You’ll feel as if you’ve known her all your life
The world’s oldest lesson in history.

Here in your arms where the world is impossibly still
With a million dreams to fulfill
And a matter of moments until the dancing ends.

Here in your arms when everything seems to be clear
Not a solitary thing do I fear
Except when this moment comes near the dancing’s end

Oh if I caught the world in an hourglass
Saddled up the moon so we could ride
Until the stars grew dim
Until the time that time stands still
Until…

Please, please, please ignore the terrible video. I really hate music videos made from movie clips. Ugh.

Whoa There…

Let it be said that this post will contain too much information. More than most anybody wants to know about anybody. So why am I posting it? Because I want to, and I’m not embarrassed too. So there. But, if you don’t want to know a lot of information about me, don’t read this. (That means you, dad.)








Okay. Seriously.








You’ve been warned.








My period is sporadic. It’s been this way for the past 2 years or so and that’s because of the hormonal birth control that I was on for 3 years. I eventually got an IUD, which I highly recommend, but my hormones were basically screwed from hell and back. I mean, I was like clockwork regular until I went on that birth control. Down to the hour regular. Ugh.

So, why am I writing about this?

Because I have been so nervous that I would get my period while we were at the wedding/honeymoon. I”m sure y’all who are reading this can imagine why this would be disappointing…. but you have no idea.

See, Chet and I live together. Shocker, right?

What I bet you didn’t know is that we gave up sex in May.

That’s even more of a shocker huh?  Yeah well, it started as joke, and then it became a challenge becuase no one thought we could do it.

Well, my friends, we have. We are 5 weeks out from the wedding, and we are still celibate.

Take that bitches.

So, this bring us to my period. I have been paranoid. I want to have sex. No, I mean really. Really, really, really, really.

Recently, though, my period has become a bit more regular, as in the past two months, I have gotten my period on the 7th. Which, hopefully, means I will have it on the 7th of November.

Which, for those who are dense, means aunt flo will not be chillin’ with us over the wedding and honeymoon.

**DOES THE HAPPY DANCE**

Phew. Who thought one could be so paranoid?

Hi!

So, I’m not really even totally sure where I left off. I suppose it was about &’s, yes?

Yes.

Okay, so where are we now? Well, everything has basically become a crap shoot. Funny, as I am no longer in Texas, but I suppose that is how it goes.

Alright, alright. I’m being dramatic again. But we’ve had a couple of things go wrong. First, our band which was going to play the ceremony and then during the mingling time is no longer able to play. WHAAAA!? Well, apparently they have to march, at the only away game that they go to, which, is of course, that weekend.

So we went for plan B, asking our friend who plays in a string quartet to play for the wedding. He agreed, and then promptly remembered another commitment to which he could not back out of. To his credit, he diligently tried to get out of it, but it just wasn’t happening. He gave us the number to some friends of his, but couldn’t guarantee any prices for us — which is just terrifying.

Oh no. Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no. That is about the mode my brain has been on for the last few days. Okay, so see, our DJ also has a wedding package in which they’ll help us choose songs, set up, play and all of that glorious stuff. Only problem was that it adds an extra $395. And then add an extra $150 for the hour to play. When e-mailing out DJ, he very kindly bumped the price down to $475, since this is a completely unexpected expense. It really was kind of him.

We just don’t know where we’re getting the money from.

Also, we can’t locate our pastor who is to marry us. Sam, if you’re out there… please, for the love of God, contact me? k, thanks.

Oh, and invitations need to go out like, tomorrow if we want people to come. Apparently it’s good to have people show up when you’re putting on a wedding.

Ohno. ohnoohnohnohnohnohnohnohno.
