Holiday madness [Nov. 20th, 2006|04:17 am]
September 2006 weddings

Where will you ladies be spending your Thanksgiving holiday?  Your parents or your in laws or elsewhere?

I'm curious because the holiday season SUCKS here because we have to run to three different sets of family to get the damned-near-mandatory time spent with each (hubby's parents are divorced).

My mother has been causing drama about the fact that we are hanging with his Dad's entire family (like 35 people) for Thanksgiving.  We told my mother last year that we would alternate Thanksgiving's between his dad's huge party and my mom's little tiny family get together.  Last year we were at her place.. and she's still causing drama about it.

Anyone else having this issue?  Anyone have any advice (short of giving up and not doing ANYTHING?)?????

I hope your Thanksgiving is less drama then mine is! :)

your civic duty continues [Nov. 8th, 2006|11:47 pm]

[Current Mood |thankfulthankful]

Election Day is NOT over!  As I posted here about a month ago, my wife has been unemployed forever (ok, 8 weeks now -- it just seems that long) so our chances of going on a honeymoon come February are zilch!  We need to pay as much of our wedding loan off by Feb. before the APR skyrockets.

To that vein, I entered us in a contest for the cutest pet.  We've got two up there, but Aimee is the girl everyone is voting for to win us an all expense paid trip to Seattle.  So would you click below and vote for Aimee?


Those ABC-7 bastards not only keep switching Aimee's page (we were one of the first to sign up) but they re-vamped their entire site!  And I couldn't find the link and wrote to them to no avail.  But Alas!  One of my journal readers found the site.

Voting is only going on until November 10th!  So please, vote right now, and tomorrow (that starts in 20 minutes!) and on the 10th.

I emplore you!  Nicole and I NEED a frikkin vacation with the budget we've been living on with her not working.  It's the handout we've been looking for!!!

Thank you again for all your clicking!

Where are you all at?! [Nov. 7th, 2006|04:11 pm]
September 2006 weddings

Hey ladies,

I haven't heard much from anybody in this community lately so I just wanted to check in and see how your new marriages are going!?

Mine is going great. In the first month I was a little standoffish, but I think it was because I was adjusting to being married. But now I am really really happy. We are finding out groove on how to live together peacefully. We have more or less figured out finances, which is good. 2 days until our 2 month anniversary :) I'm really happy.

We just got around to returning some of the registry gifts yesterday. I still haven't written my half of the thank you cards, I know, it's bad.

on a side note, I am now a co-mod for happymarriage!! I am really excited about this role.

So how you're all doing...?

Okay, I'm starting to get a little bit frustrated with this guy. My wedding was on Sept. 2 and since moving to our current adress in mid-JUNE I have told him our adress at least five times, and as of me getting off the phone with him about 20 minutes ago he wasn't sure if he had the correct adress. This might not be such a problem if we were in the same city. But since we aren't he mails me anything that we order... like our prints. He sent our preview CDs to the old adress, he sent our final bill to the old adress, my god I hope he doesn't screw it up and send the prints we just orderd (that are already going to take 2 - 3 weeks) to the old adress too. I don't know what else to do. I'm really glad I know the people that live at our old adress otherwise we'd probably NEVER get this stuff.

PLEASE VOTE!!! [Oct. 18th, 2006|07:20 pm]

This has to do with our honeymoon that we can not afford so I hope it's allowed. We're finalists in a contest and need votes!!! I pasted the letter we sent to our contacts below the cut. THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!

PS- we know the vote gets “split” by putting up 2 pictures/2 of them.  But they hate one another and well, we can’t get a cute pic of the two of them together.  And we couldn’t very well decide which of our two kids was cuter…hence, the 2 postings!

Pro Pics! [Oct. 13th, 2006|11:43 pm]
September 2006 weddings

I got my professional pictures back from our photographer on Friday the 13th, for our wedding that was on the 22nd of September.

He did a fantastic job! Included in our package was unlimited time, unlimited locations (which we didn't take advantage of because my pregnant butt was too tired to head to the famous 'Welcome to Las Vegas' sign after the reception), 200 4x6 prints, and a CD with all photos, and the rights to the pictures. To our surprise, the CD has just under 1370 pictures! I've been spending the better part of the day resizing and uploading, but I thought I'd share some of my favorites thus far:

WARNING, LOTS AND LOTS of pics under cut!

Here's the link to my professional pictures. I was married on September 1st, and I couldn't have asked for a nicer wedding. The weather was perfect and there were no huge problems, and the pictures look AWESOME. Take a look!:

a new name, a new license [Oct. 9th, 2006|10:31 am]

[Current Mood |mellowmellow]

I just got back from the DMV, and I was in and out in under an hour with a name change and taking the knowledge test (California DL to Oregon DL). Ben was getting irritated with me because I was dragging my feet on the whole name change issue. Half of my stuff is in my old name and half is in my new name... I feel like I'm having an identity crisis. How are you all dealing with this?

Deceitful, but good :) [Oct. 4th, 2006|09:25 pm]

[Current Mood |deviousdevious]

So i got a special offer in my email today. DH and i registered at Linens N Things, and we had previously received a "10% off things left in your registry" coupon. But TODAY, i got a 20% off coupon, good today through like Monday. 

DH has asthma and bad allergies, and our kitty has asthma too, as we found out this week. I've wanted to get one of those Dyson vacuums because they're supposed to be amazing and great for dealing with the pet hair and allergens and dirt in general. Alas, they cost more than my first car. But with this coupon, i'd save like 80 bucks!

...then i remembered that we didn't register for one, because i thought it ridiculous to register for something that was $400. 

So what did i do? I went online, added one to my registry, printed my coupon, and off we went. And it worked! 

So, it may not have been totally honest, but i think it was awesome. Keep it in mind!!! :) :D 

xposted all over!
