couldn’t have a better day

January 28, 2006

today was a fabulous day. joe and i went to my parents’ house for lunch, and then we went with them to look at the courthouse where we plan to have our wedding. on our way back to cartersville we met up with john and stacey to talk for a little bit and picked up a wedding planner, journal and wedding scrapbook.

when we got back to cartersville, we went straight to target to do our wedding registry. of course, we couldn’t leave without buying *something*, being three candlesticks and candles for our mantel, sex and the city season 5 and an 80s compilation cd. after target we hit up applebees for dinner.

but the best part of the day? when we got home i popped one of the 80s cds in the cd player to hear “eternal flame” by the bangles (absolutely love that song!). joe came into the living room, turned off the light, restarted the song and pulled me up off the couch to dance with him. “this is our first dance as an engaged couple,” he said. “is it bad that i don’t want this to end?” i started to cry (yes, yes, you can call me a dork!). i didn’t want it to end either.

holding the power

January 24, 2006

a man from the wedding chapel where we’re hoping to have the wedding called me today to set up an appointment for us to see the location and talk about services and pricing.

“i just talked to your fiance. he said to call you because you make all the decisions.”

why yes. yes i do.

*smile*

i like having the power. 🙂

crafty, crafty

January 23, 2006

i’ve gotten in a crafty mood lately. a girl at work is going to teach me how to knit and how to *correctly* crochet. every time i try to crochet it always ends up crooked. heh.

i’ve also gotten back into cross stitch. i love cross stitch. it’s not *too* difficult, and i find it fairly relaxing. i like to work on it in the evenings when i’m watching tv. i found a flowery wedding pattern the other day that has the couple’s first names and their wedding date. i’m planning to frame it and give to joe’s sister and her fiance as their wedding gift. think that’s a good idea?

invitations and dresses

January 20, 2006

joe and i have already made some decisions regarding the wedding. we picked out our invitations. we wanted one on which we could use a picture of us, and we both fell in love with this one.

i’ve also picked out bridesmaid’s dresses. these are the two styles, but they will be in navy, not red.

and this is what i’ve picked for the flower girl. i think it’s adorable.

the ring

January 20, 2006

here’s a picture of the ring. it’s not a great picture because i took it with my camera phone (*must* get a digital camera!). i think it’s pretty. the manager who rang me up at eckerd said it was gorgeous. i will be posting more pictures of the ring and the scrapbook page later. hopefully tomorrow.

call me MRS schulman

January 19, 2006

i’m ENGAGED!! joe proposed to me TONIGHT!! i’m so excited.

today was a really rough day. i found out some very bad news which really stressed me out, and i just wanted to come home and cuddle up with joe. i got home, and joe said he was working on the cover page for our scrapbook and needed my help. he told me to sit down, and he opened our scrapbook. there on top was a page he had done with a tuxedo and wedding gown on either side that said “sweetheart,” “i love you,” and “true love.” at the top it said “marry me.” he had already put “y” and “e” stickers on the page and needed me to put on the “s” sticker. of COURSE i said yes. we kissed and kissed and kissed, and he slipped his mother’s engagement ring on my finger. oh my gosh i’m so excited. i can’t stop staring at it!! i’ve been bouncing around all night, and when i had shiver run up and down me when stacey called joe my fiance tonight. i’ll post pictures of the ring hopefully tomorrow. he’s going to buy me a new one to match my wedding band.
