My birthday is Saturday woohoo! My big ol drunk fest of a 21st birthday. I'm excited but also know I'm going to get SICK which I REALLY don't want to happen so I've convinced Marc to drink every drink that I drink because he is my conscience. We are having this wonderful event at a pub called Scott E's that is Marc's favorite so it should be nice. I (of course) have never been there so we'll see! Marc bought pizza and beer for everyone who's decided to show up so it should be good!

Wedding planning sucks balls. I'm going to let you in on a little secret. If someone sends you an RSVP card that means we want you to send that shit back to us even if you can't come or arent sure yet..just CONTACT ME IN SOME SHAPE OR FORM. It says on the RSVP to reply before April 20th..well it's April 28th jerk heads and I've yet to hear from some and I've already REMINDED them and thats just that. Oh well right? It's nice though to be looking forward to my birthday because it gives me a little bit of a change from thinking of the wedding too much. I just keep reminding myself that this is about the day, not about the _____ or the ______.

I'm so excited to be Marc's wife he's my everything. I can't believe we have been together two and a half years! June 4th June 4th June 4th!

These last couple of weeks have been shop-heavy. I've bought a whole new wardrobe for a slimmer figure (go me I kick ass I know, I know its rude to self congratulate but if you've ever lost weight and KEPT it off you'll know what I mean) and I'm excited to start wearing them, and Goodwill should be happy since they just got five bags full-o-fatty clothes!

T minus 9 days until my 21st birthday!
T minus 44 days until my wedding!

I must admit life is good. I can complain about the trivial things but it wont solve anything so I'm just gonna say life is grand and I'll look back on this time as some of the best memories of my life.

Today Marc left early to go to the "bank" and I (for some reason) DESPERATELY wanted to come with and I was so disappointed when he said no. I was like "no? why no? you never say no!" I felt bad for him though since he had to come right out and say "Chetney you birthday is in almost a week I have things that need to be done!"....... oops, my bad.

I also got a early birthday present from my sister it's called Moroccan oil and it's supposed to do wonders for your hair. I tried it and I LOVE the smell, it also is a really great product to smooth out the frayed ends of a razor cut, but buyer beware its really expensive.

After my dismissal of accompaniment to the "bank" I sulked for a good ten minutes and then got all gussied up since I figured he would want to go do something with me after he was finished with his birthday tasks. Silly me. He took one look at me and said Chetney we have things we need to do at home the laundry is overflowing! UGH UGH UGH! So I took of my going out clothes put on some rabbit chewed crap and began cleaning like little cinderella. Of course I ended up doing the two loads of laundry but I must admit he went down there with me once and unloaded the wet clothes into the dryer because my wrist is all fucked up. I must say though, marc was sweet about not letting me come with him, he even bought me a flower plant thing that I'm going to try not to kill.

During the laundry down time we went to KFC, or should I say KGC? They have that now on the drink cups which is kinda silly. Hod some good grub and went to GOODWILL! I LOVE GOODWILL! I guess I wore him down with my sad puppy eyes about wanting to spend some time with him :) We ended up buying some shirts for one of his clients (he works with adult males who have cerebral palsy in an assisted living home) marc also got a few shirts, and then I got a new gray dress for my 21st, a white eyelet dress for my wedding shower, a green and purple plaid tanktop, and a black blazer type jacket that I thought would look okay with the dress but now that I'm thinking of it, it might just be a little too heavy to wear inside. The gray dress is a tube top so I'll have to figure on that one. I'm a little weirded out about wearing dresses to bars but thats just my style I can't help it! So I'm thinking about just doing cardigans with each dress and a belt to match and cinch my waist which will maybe bring it down a few pegs on the grandma level..also platform wedges will be making an appearance at both events.

Anyway, here's the latest picture of Jaqstein and Violet

They must be lovers :) okay ta ta for now.

What a LONG LONG DAY! I am so glad we got so much accomplished and everything is getting into place. Alice <--my mother in law and I first went to the tailoring shop to get my dress fitted which was fun and really a happy time. I really have to say how wonderful it felt to have lost so much weight, she had to take quite a bit off of it so it will probably cost more to fix it than it did to make it in the first place. I'm just excited to see it, next Friday it should be half way there. We even saw this cute little feather headband to go with my veil!
After the alterations shop we went to look for centerpiece ideas and ended up no finding what we wanted in Walmart so we went back to her house to see what we could pick up in the Michaels catalog. The decision was made for blue and cream hydrangeas for the bouquet, and black eyed susans in galvanized watering cans for centerpieces. It should be so cute!

Other things we got done:
wedding party planning, food, and reservations
swam with the kiddies
and just had a good time in each others company...

now I'm tired and I just want to SLEEP!

Pissy Smisshy

I have to say I'm a little upset over something that is STUPID. My birthday is coming up and I asked Marc to figure out where we are going or whatever and had told him about this at least since march 15th (my b-day is May 1st) and he has YET to plan anything for my birthday. So then I ask Andrea my sister in law to help Marc plan but they haven't even talked about it. I'm frustrated. I know this sounds so DUMB because its like holy shit stop being such a spoiled brat...but I just can't help feeling like this is going to turn out shitty. Who wants to plan their own fucking birthday and this is not just some birthday its my 21st! My one and only 21st!! What do I do?
