Michael's New Job

Today I got a call from Michael saying that he was hired for a new job! Praise the Lord! Its a full time job as a security guard. I have been slightly worried with the wedding coming up so soon and Michael still not having a full time job, but the Lord provided for our needs. Its one thing that I don't need to worry about anymore. And as a added bonus (for me) he gets to wear a uniform. haha It may sound kind of cheesy but I have a weakness for uniforms. Is that weird?

Merry Christmas

It was sad to see my family and Michael leave today but it was nice to have them here. It was kind of tight trying to fit everyone in the house but we managed. It was a really warm Christmas this year. People were outside on the lake fishing in shorts and t-shirts, so much for a white christmas. :P This year I got my mom a very special gift. Since this was the first time in 2 years that all 4 of her girls were together my sister and we decided to get pictures done of all four of us. Of course my mom is very suspicious and found out about but its the thought that counts. We had a good time. I was also able to get some engagement photos done with Michael. I finally have some decent pictures lol. I can't believe that my wedding is in 2 1/2 months, and my time here in Florida is coming to an end soon. We did a lot of wedding planning this past week. Everything seems to be going great. Things are still a little busy but they'll slow down soon, so hopefully I'll be able to keep up with this more. ;)

Family arrives!

I didn't realize how long it had been since I had posted something. I guess things just got so busy. I've been working a lot lately. The Christmas season is dying down so that means my hours are also going to die down which in a way its nice because I need the rest. I've finally have my wedding dress fitted and Michael's ring! That's two things off my list.

Last night my parents and two little sisters finally arrived in Florida! I was really excited to see them especially since I hadn't seen my dad or my sisters in almost a year and a half. My little sisters have gotten so big! Its unbelievable! The rest of the family arrive later on this week on Thursday and Friday and then everyone will be here! Its going to be a full house but I'm happy to have everyone here for Christmas!

Work, Work and More Work

It has been a very busy week. I wasn't planning on working very much because my boss told me we didn't have very many sittings so hours were going to be low. Well the week is over and I worked close to 40 hours this week. So much for it being slow. Needless to say I am exhausted. Today was my day off, well it was supposed to be. I ended up being called in to work a few hours this evening. At least I was able to sleep in. Friday and Saturday were my busy days as I ended up working for 12 hours each day. Talk about tiring.

I was able to get some other things done this week besides work. On Tuesday I went to Tampa and had my dress fitting. Ended up costing a lot more than I hoped, ouch! Then I also bought Michael's wedding band as well. We had to order it so I will pick it up next Wednesday when I have my final dress fitting, hopefully everything will fit. Speaking of wedding, Michael and I have finally set a date, which makes me happy because I didn't like not having one. We were hoping for January but we wanted to be safe and make sure we had everything in order so we decided on March 4th. Only three months away! Really can't wait!

Christmas is coming soon, so that means family is coming soon. I'm excited to see my parents but I'm more excited to see my two little sisters. Is that bad? Michael is also coming down for Christmas so that's another exciting thing. My entire family together for Christmas, should be an interesting one.

Life with my grandparents is going as usual. Though I'm not sure if they are getting more cranky or me. Either way at times, it gets a little stressful here, more for me than them. But I'm pushing through it and reminding myself that I only have a little bit more time here and the end is in sight. At least I have a roof over my head. ;)
