Our new house!!

i am soososoosos excited! i think i secretly love moving (i am crazy)... but there is something about a change of scenery that is always fun, and i just like newness. it is like being able to start over, every year, in one way, at least. you can't start over everything, but you can start over with your living situation. new things to decorate, new things to look forward to.

things we are looking forward to in the new house:

1. a washer and dryer
2. a FOLDING station in the...
4. basement=no more having to look at the cats' litter box!
5. a built in microwave!
6. a super nice kitchen, with all new appliances, and cool lights!
7. a door from the kitchen to the back yard
8. a backyard that is...
9. fenced in! for a doggie!
10. a spare bedroom!
11. a music/craft room!
12. 2 bathrooms!
13. a porch outside with a rocking chair
14. a window above the sink (something i've wanted in all of our apartments)
15. the fact that it is a house, equaling privacy
16. the fact that the landlord is so excited that we have 2 cats, and that we want a dog
17. a dog trail behind our house, that leads to a field
18. more than 1 closet!
19. did i mention the kitchen? it is my favorite part
20. parties again!

so here is the outside... I will post inside pictures once we have moved in:

wedding deets

since i haven't posted anything in hundreds of years about decisions I have made about the wedding, i figure now is the perfect time. pj is in bed, getting over the stomach bug. yayy, my most favorite sickness of all. so now i am praying for my own health, and staying as far away from him as i can. 

i've been purchasing milk glass vases off of ebay, and looking in antique stores, for my centerpieces. there is some type of rose, which i forget the name of now, that resembles a peony. so, i want basically all of these flowers shown in the picture above, with maybe a few dark mums thrown in. 

this is basically what i am going with for my color scheme. the bouquet lying on the floor is the one i like, not the one with the calla lilies.  and i hate the invitations, but essentially that is the color i want the bridesmaids dresses, a champagne color. i decided against doing fall colors, because i just liked these more, and just because it's fall i don't have to do everything in super fall form. 

the flowers in these centerpieces, i love love love. i also love the white pumpkin idea, but the milk glass is just cheaper to be honest. in the top photo, if you notice the little pumpkin tea-light though, i have all intentions of doing this, but with a small white pumpkin instead. hopefully i won't lose the motivation to do it. i wish so badly that my wedding was going to be outside like the one in the photo above, but unfortunately we just couldn't do it :(

i want to get this dress made, but i want the price of getting a dress made to be cheaper than buying a dress. so far that isn't what i have been quoted. i'm not giving up though, because the girl in this dress had it custom made, and its the only dress i can't stop thinking about. pj also loves the gray tux a lot, i hope he sticks with it, because he wanted brown, and i hate brown tuxes :/ 

and, lastly, these are the invites we decided on. a girl makes them on her etsy shop. she is going to change the colors to fit my color scheme. i love how on the rsvp there is a place where people can write down their song requests. and i also love the little tied on doily thingy. and that is all for now!

new years resolutions

this year is going to involve some really life changing events; moving out of our apartment in May, getting MARRIED, and hopefully getting a dog towards the very end. it is exciting, kind of stressful, but i actually do like change. PJ hates moving, but i like it. i never mind a change of scenery, it keeps things interesting, and we learn things each time we move. this year i think PJ and i are really going to feel like adults. PJ is turning 26 next month (ahhhh), and adding mr. and mrs. to our title just makes me feel like an adult in general. anywayssss, pj is currently making me watch the dark knight. i already can't deal with the way batman talks. why does he talk like that? who talks like that?  ok, he isn't making me watch it, but i am trying to be a good girlfriend and watch things pj wants to watch. that is one of my resolutions for the year 2010...

1. watch more movies with PJ, since i know he loves them so much
2. begin eating healthier, and living a healthier life style
3. be nicer to PJ, and work on my patience...
4. laugh more
5. learn how to SAVE money, instead of always spending
6. blog more!

i am keeping it short this year, but a lot of what i want is to just work on myself as a person. this year is going to be about me, but in a non-selfish kind of way.

so, now that all the holidays are over, pj insisted we needed to take down our incredibly dead, pathetic, christmas tree. the tree was so dead, it left a HUGE mess

it only took about 3 hours to clean, no biggie. next time i'll be sure to not let the tree die, even though i swear it wasn't my fault! everyone was pretty wiped after all the de-decorating, sooo we all took a nap.

i heart naps
