I got my wedding dress!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was planning on doing a custom made dress since I'm so picking but I found the perfect dress!!!! On Friday I went to David's Bridal just to see how the different styles looked on me to get ideas for my custom dress. Within 20 minutes I had found my dress...... I love it!! It has every element I wanted. Its light and comfortable, the material is perfect for travel, it fits my body perfectly, and IT WAS ON SALE! : ) The picture shows it in white but I got it in ivory. It looks even better up close. You can zoom in if you go to and search for style number T9845 I plan on wearing my hair down and curly with a flower in it, no veil, flip flops, just casual beach style. Let me know what you think! : )

Wedding Day Detox

Well, in my usual OCD manor, I have overstressed myself with trying to mentally plan a wedding, find a new job, find a dog for Clint, etc. all in like two weeks. After spending a wonderful weekend with my family (most of which I had a migraine) I got home, tonight, and went to workout. I forgot how good it feels to just workout and let your mind wander to nothing. I realized that I need to calm down and not overexert myself. I have over a year to plan a very simple wedding, lose 20 lbs, find a house, etc. I just got a nice raise at my job, although if the economy doesnt pick up it wont actually do me any good as half my total pay is commission, but I digress. My point it that I have so much to be thankful for and I need to stop constantly stressing myself out by trying to make it what I think it should be. Does my job irritate me? Of course! But I HAVE A JOB. I have no reason to complain especially in this economy. So my plan is to focus on kicking ass at my job and if a better job comes along, so be it. I'm going to focus on being healthy and stress free and most of all THANKFUL. Hope everyone has a wonderful evening and rememebers that it's the little things in life that make it beautiful.

On the prowl

Soooo in other non-relationship related news....

I have decided to start looking for a new job (full time that is). Due to various frustrations that are about to push me over the edge at work, I am job hunting. Anyone know of any jobs in Minneapolis? I'm looking for something related to: marketing, planning, coordinating, designing, etc. I don't want to work in a huge corporation anymore and I'm getting sick of sales bull**** that I have to deal with on a daily basis. I have a few interviews this week so we shall see!! Hope you all are having a lovely week!

Romance is not lost!

I have the sweetest fiance ever. Yesterday was my last day at the jewelry store, and my first day at Victoria's Secret. This meant I had to work from 9:30am-10:00pm. Needless to say, I was so exhausted when I got out of work. Clint was supposed to work all night but he left early and said he'd have dinner waiting when I got home. I thought that was sweet but figured we'd have a low-key meal and that was all. When I got home I walked in the door and saw that the whole house was lit with candles...there were roses on the table. (He also got me roses two nights ago when he made us dinner. Twice in three days, how sweet is that??) He had made an amazing meal for us too, with tons my favorite foods and had an Easter basket for me on the table.
The other night I was talking about how much I loved cheese and crackers with hot peppers so he got my two favorite cheeses, plus bri, banana peppers and jalapenos, and two kinds of crackers.

He also made pork tenderloin, potato salad, fruit salad, garlic cheese bread, and chocolate covered strawberries.
Seriously.......what guys do stuff like that anymore? And when I asked what the occasion was, he said "no reason, I just wanted to do this for you." Wow. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world : ) I love you babe!

The Proposal

Well...we actually decided to get married about a week ago while watching movies. We were sitting on the couch having a glass of wine and watching a movie. Somehow we got to talking about how we both thought over the top huge weddings were a waste of money and were joking around that "if" we ever got married it would be on a beach in Mexico with no fuss no muss. Then I asked where the honeymoon would be, and said "Well when are we getting married?" I told him next fall worked for me and we started laughing then he said he was serious and that he realized a couple months ago (before I even knew he had feelings for me!) that he wanted to marry me. So we started laughing and I said yes.

A few days later we were out to dinner and as we were leaving we noticed a jewelry store next to us and decided to go in just for fun. Since he manages a jewelry store we weren't planning on getting a ring anywhere else. While we were in the store trying on rings and being silly we also decided to have a little fun with the salesman and told him that Clint was a stockboy at Bestboy which caused our snooty little salesman to sigh because he probably figured we were just messing with him. Then I tried a mounting that made us both stop was perfect. We both looked at each other and smiled. He asked me to come outside with him and asked if I was sure because now it was for sure if we got a ring. I said yes.

He took the mounting with him and ordered in a few stones at our jewelry store to have mounted. They were taking too long to come in so he ended up buying a stone that was already in the store that we liked. Monday night, I knew he would be coming over to propose. He asked if I were prefer a surprise romantic proposal....but I wanted my ring and told him that I had already said yes when he asked me last week and to me that was a romantic proposal.

So I lit come candles and turned on Oasis, one of our favorite bands, and he came up and we laid down and talked about how crazy this was, but how sure we were and then he knelt down beside my bed and asked me to marry him. I said yes.

Then we celebrated by playing Wii bowling and having a few beers. It was perfect.

I'M ENGAGED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is my ring mounting except the side stones are marquise cut instead of trillion cut like in the picture.And the center stone is a princess cut and not a marquise cut.

Yes's true. This single girl is off the market! I know it's crazy and fast but when you know, you know. We're getting married in fall of 2010 in Mexico on the beach.

picture time

Well he is. Playing guitar hero, and looking extremely intense haha. I swear my room has been taken over. Wii, Guitar Hero, clothes, shoes, shaving kits, DVDs, etc. I would show you a picture but it's too shameful for a neat freak like me to ever show to the public. We've become "one of those couples" the ones that can't spend a moment apart. It's rather disgusting, but I love it. And I'm neglecting my blogger, I'm sorry. There's no excuse. Last night I was going to blog....but let Clint show me how to play Wii bowling instead - and fyi I totally kicked his ass at it.

Please don't judge me.....I'll blog more I promise!

April Fools!

No...I don't have any good jokes or pranks today. I tried to think of some but it's too cold and snowing. I would rather just sit and catch up on my blogging! I've been so busy with finishing the move, working, and being with my new man. Yes, I know it's pathetic but we're together everyday except when he has his son. I'll get some pics of me and him together and post soon I promise! In related news, I think I'll be working part-time at Victoria's Secret now instead of the jewelry store so we can finally tell everyone we work with! It's been kind of fun keeping it a secret.....but I'm ready for them to know. They been telling us to date for months so they'll be happy that we finally are.

I am so happy it's kind of ridiculous : ) There's none of the drama, none of the anxiety that I usually get the first couple weeks in a relationship. I'm just happy. He and I have worked together for almost 6 months, we've seen every side of each other, we know all of each others stories, we work well together. We make a good team. It just works, it's natural, it's easy... that's only way I can explain it.

I have been in love several times, I've been engaged, I've lived with someone.....but no matter how happy I was, I always second guess everything and constantly analyze. You all know've read my stories where I over analyze men and relationships. This feels different. And yes I know it's only been like a week and a half, but that's how I feel.
