Catch You on the Flip Side

Hey, guys! Well, I have been packing my brains out all week. I tell ya, I remember the good ol' days when I was in college, and I didn't have any furniture, and all my stuff fit into 10 large boxes. I didn't even need help to move.

Now, it's an entirely different ball game! I am leaving to go pick up my U-Haul here in a few, but just wanted to post really quickly.

I have read all of your comments (they are all emailed to me), but I really don't have time to reply to all of them, other than to say thank you to all of you for your support. It's a little scary to have this much going on at once, and I'm worried I will f**k something up, but in a month or so, I think I'll be ok.

We still haven't heard when CN will get his job transferred down to Savannah so he can move in with me. Hopefully, it will be soon. We have been across the street from each other for a year and a half, so this will be a big adjustment for us.

If you remember correctly, I told him that we have to either be engaged or have a wedding date picked out before he can move in with me. Since the ring is still in Belgium, with my aunt, which makes proposing rather difficult, we went ahead and set a date: June 26, 2010. Which also happens to be my dad's birthday. I have always wanted to get married on his birthday, since he won't be there to walk me down the aisle.

So that is pretty exciting!!! It gives us time to save up and plan everything. Er, it gives my mom time to plan everything (she's already going into overdrive-control-freak mode). Once I get settled down in Savannah, I will start checking out wedding magazines, I guess. I dunno. Most of y'all are married. What do you recommend as far as how best to get started on planning? Any advice???

I don't know when I will be able to blog again. I have to see what my new job is like. Right now, at this job, I have tons of down time, so it's ok. But who knows what my new job will be like? I will try to get to the public library sometime so I can update y'all on stuff. But that might be a while. It would be great if CN could move in quickly -- he has a brand new, super-fast computer and I could blog from his all the time.

Anyway, we will see. Ok, guys. I gotta go. Wish me luck, and I'll get back to you (and catch up on your blogs!!) as soon as possible!

Happy moving, VB, and good luck in Savannah!

I think it's simply meant to be that your dad's birthday just happens to be on a Saturday next year. What a sweet idea. :)

Congrats all on the new stuff happening in your life!

On wedding planning, I started with www.theknot.com - but only for the checklist. I thought that the site was too busy and WAY overwhelming, but I liked their checklist. It takes your wedding date and then gives you a timeframe to complete stuff.

Secondly, I am not sure where you are having you wedding or how much you want to spend, but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my photographers! Check them out www.dartisti.com - they are a husband and wife team, so you get two for the price of one, and they really document your day, not just take formals or the old standards. They were worth every penny, because after the wedding is over all you have left are the pictures!

My biggest wedding planning tips are: 1) Don't let anyone take over, it is about you and CN, NO ONE ELSE. 2) Relax and enjoy the whole process, you have waited a love time to find this love, ENJOY IT! and 3)everything about the actual day could go wrong, but as long as you are married at the end of the day, the whole wedding was a success!

I really loved planning my wedding (I saved a TON of cash, by getting a lot of stuff on eBay), so if you need anything, some ideas, or just someone to talk to if things get crazy! I am sure we are all here for you and are totally happy for you!
