Is my bridezilla showing?

I am a very decisive bride.

I have a picture of what I want my wedding to look exact picture and most of the time I know how to make it or where to get it.

There are good things to this of course. One being that I don't really have to figure out what I want and I can describe to my mother exactly what I want.

Bad thing? It can sometimes look like this when I can't make or find what I want or let's say put staples in the reception hall walls to cover up the nasty basketball goal.....

Of course I'm trying to avoid turning into a bridezilla, thats the last thing I want. but every bride has a little bit of bridezilla in them I just hope mine doesn't show too much. Sorry if It does sometimes. I just want everything to be perfect! I only get one shot at this thing, you know? Isn't that what all brides want? For everything to be picture perfect just like a fairy tale? Isn't that what we were raised to think a wedding should be like?

On the other hand, So what if I have to work extra hard to figure out a way to hang fabric over that nasty goal. So what if everyone isn't wearing the color scheme I want. I still get to marry my best friend and the love of my life and really thats all that matters right? (that does NOT exclude those of you out there from wearing what I want/have asked you to wear! Sorry!) (and yes I know my bridezilla is showing, I'll try to tame it back down now!)

We are taking our engagement pictures tomorrow!!! I couldn't be more excited!!! One of my friends that I have grown up with, Alyssa Jackson, is taking them!! She just started a photography business and her pictures are AMAZING!!! I know she is definitely an up and coming photographer and I have no doubt that she'll be in some magazine somewhere or something!! I'll post them as soon as i get them back!! However, I still have not picked out what to wear yet...that may be a problem, maybe I should go work on that!!!

Sister Veto

Well my maid of honor aka my sister vetoed my hair choice, well y'alls hair choice.

So the search is starting again.....

I guess I'll do another poll when I get her approval of a few choices.

What can I say, my sister knows me best!

I wish she was here :(

Polls are closed

Thanks readers!! Wow 33 I didn't know that many people read my blog!! I am in awe!

It's official as of right now this is how my hair will look on my wedding day!

Of course I will have to do a test run first to make sure it's good!

However, even though it was the least voted on, I will be doing something very similar to this for my bridal portraits. (I know my future father-in-law will be happy about this seeing how its the one he voted for)

There is a chance I might fall in love with this have to do it on my wedding day too, but we'll see.

Apparently unconsciously I want to be blonde, maybe I'll try it some day.

I'll have to start thinking of a new poll this was VERY helpful!! One more thing crossed off the list!!

Operation gray love seat: Complete!!!

Whelp, It's show week again here at Heathrow International, but not just any show week, this show is the first show I have costumed by myself!! I'm so excited and happy with how everything turned out!!

*Drum roll, please*

I FOUND THE GRAY LOVE SEAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's perfect :):) this is the most interesting love seat I have ever seen!! Its from this place online called Home Reserve and its a ready to assemble couch which means you put it together it's actually really cool and it has storage under the cushions!! and they let you order sample fabric!! I love this place!!!

and on that love seat these pillows will wonderfully sit,

And right next to that these chairs will be lovingly placed

and in those chairs these pillows will be perfectly arranged

and right in front of our beautiful sofa will go our amazing freshly painted black coffee table and matching side table will go to the side (sorry I don't have a picture of either one)

Just a few more touches here and there and our living room is complete and I couldn't be happier!!!

This week and last week have been wedding crazy. I have checked so many things off, but i still feel like I have a ton to do

Bridesmaid dress- check
Tuxes, picked out, but not rented- I'll give it a check anyway
Invites in and almost addressed-check
Wedding songs all picked out!!!-check
Guestbook painted by our amazing friend Laura-check
Registries- check
And lots more I can't think of right now!

Here are the links to all our registries:
Bed Bath & Beyond

I know we have a lot, I just do what I'm told to do.

You may notice (because someone asked me about it the other day) that some of the items are things that I normally wouldn't pick out, but it's because JRP meticulously and wonderfully picked out all the stuff for our bedroom and bathroom, Just another reason why I love him!

Also, keep voting on the hair poll!! Thanks for helping me out you guys rock!!!

Hair Poll

The Knot also reminded me that I need to pick my hair style this month.. this has been a BIG frustration of mine. so I'm stealing Katy's idea and all my wonderful readers get to have at it!
Also if you want to leave a comment why that would be great too, keep in mind I'm wearing a 4 yard cathedral veil and a feather pin of course.






Thank you Knot!

For always keeping me on track!

This is the email I got from them this morning!!

Hi Heather!
You've got 3 months to go!



I marry my best friend and love of my life in 3 MONTHS!!! :):)

What a great day even with the rain!!

Toddler Moment

*Please ignore the massive temper tantrum that is about to happen on my blog*

*Imagine me on the floor kicking and screaming like a 2 year old because this is how I feel about it right now*

I WANT my wedding dress, I want my wedding dress, I want my wedding dress!!!




I WILL NOT be patient!!!!



I'm sick of staring at pictures of it!! I want it in my possession right now! I want to be able to try it on when I feel like it and not have to drive an hour to try it on with all the people that work there judging me for coming in so much!!!

* tantrum over, for now*

In other news, our BEAUTIFUL, AMAZING, WONDERFUL, AWESOME, MORE THAN I COULD HAVE POSSIBLY IMAGINED invitations came in. Obviously I love them so much!! My wonderful adopted brother designed and made them! He's pretty much my favorite right now!! We actually got a lot of them addressed and ready to go out, but they aren't going out till after we get our engagement picture made cause I want to put one in there!!

Pack Rat on a Roller Coaster

Last week and this week have been stressful, awful, wonderful, terrible, amazing, and exciting all rolled into one. To say it has been a roller coaster would be an understatement.

Here a few events that have caused all these things

Finals :(

Summer :)

Summer classes :(

My computer got taken hostage by IT (they are putting windows back on it boo!) :(

I got to go in JRP's and My apartment for next year! I'm so excited!!! :)

JRP turned 22 (I know, I'm marrying an old man) :)

JRP went home :(

JRP Came to visit :)

I'm going to his house tonight!! :)

Another craft fail (I will not be posting pictures of this on it's just too sad) :(

JRP and I have been watching the show on TLC called Hoarding Buried Alive and we have decided that we have WAY too much stuff especially for our tiny baby apartment. so, we are going through everything we own and throwing stuff away. We both have things we hoard like none other. JRP is a tshirt hoarder. I wish i would have taken a picture of all his tshirt luckily about half of them are now gone. Last night I found something I had forgotten that I hoarded....

If you can't tell what that is, it is all my notes that I passed to people while at OCA. Yes, for some reason I felt the need to keep all of them! So last night I read all of them, laughed at how immature I was, and threw them away! Maybe if I would have not passed notes and actually listened to the teachers I would have learned stuff and done better on the finals for this semester, but then again probably not.

All in all I got rid of 4 boxes and 4 tubs. I still have a TON more to go through, but I feel pretty accomplished right now!
