6 days


My wedding is in 6 days. I couldn’t b more stressed. It’s not even over the wedding!!! My truck died and is not coming back, david drives a standard and I have killed my share, we need something bigger than a car anyway.

We are trying to get the house as done as possible, outside and in since it’s the big reveal!!

One of my kitties has been gone for about a month now and I have had her for 6 years.

And, my soon to be mother in law hates me. David’s ex put a bad taste in her mouth that she can’t see past I guess.

And then the wedding, we have done all the planning and putting things together ourselves. The decorations have me worried, too much, too little, wrong combo of things, will it look like a no nothing bride did it?

Then, the vows, david wants to do our own vows!!! I can’t express in any way how much I love him, how much he has changed my life.

Sooooo. Today, I’m drowning.

A new Era? ?


While planning my wedding there are things that have come to my attention that I have found rather bothersome.

Unless u r looking to spend 300 or more to rent a party tent, u r out of luck if it rains. They sell these, party tents, all over on ebay or amazon and they run from 30 to 2,000. But almost ever one I read states they are for sun protection and not made for wind or rain… So, that means if u plan an outside wedding and it rains, u r out of luck??? Really??? That just doesn’t work for me. Lots of people want to be outside but can’t afford a large tent that is wind and rain proof. 300, that’s just for a small one. Why does it have to cost thousands of dollars to have a nice , beautiful wedding ?? They say to save money, no caterers, ok, family or local places. No photographer’s, ok, family and friends snap away, “we r doing this” they do have excellent photo shops now but of course that’s another 50 or so. For music, go local, friends or make your own recording , I’m lucky that david is a former band member and has all we need for that, but then you are still looking at , flowers, real ones r very costly since u need a lot! The grooms clothes are not usually on hand and same with the dress. I think the Era of the DIY wedding is upon us! Brides are doing more themselves and I can see why!!

I bothers me how much you need to spend to have a wedding these days.I know it used to have traditionally the brides parents pay and all the old things that went with weddings but now u have people who are doing it more than once . It isn’t easy to do on a tight budget but I think I can safely say I will be under 1,000 when we r done. Here’s hoping!!! October 14 is coming quick!!

Cancer free


It is with great emotion that I tell you, I was recently diagnosed with cervical cancer. They immediately started on removing it. I had two different proceedings done and after my second , they say it’s all gone!

I am STILL remodeling my house, still planning a backyard wedding for October 14 and then this, I was more frustrated that I had to remain in bed for a week than anything else! Lol  it just never crossed my mind they would fail. I was just not worried, I new, I just had that feeling inside that it was all going to be ok and they would get rid of it all. I was in bed with no problems for the first three days, then on day four I moved around a bit, day five- more and on day 6 was put back to bed rest. Pushed it. Yesterday was day one week and I’m still trying to be easy but it’s so hard with everything else going on.

I still have a , I guess u could say, dormant mass inside my intestines that has just stayed there, not changing, not growing, not doing anything. It’s been there for a few years and the concern has always been with major surgery and how my body would handle it. This was not a major surgery but it was still pretty invasive, I think I handled it just fine. The Dr don’t want to mess with it if they don’t have to, I can see y.

I start with a new primary care next week and am very excited. I have been dealing with so much unknown that it’s got me frustrated, I’m hoping a new set of eyes will finally find me some answers.

I do believe


Life is either 

A daring

Adventure 

Or nothing

At all……

               Helen Keller

I have put my faith, life, house, everything into a new state and am slowly changing more everyday. Now, with my health, and many other things of course in mind I have decided to live more by this motto. So, on October 14 2017, I am getting married to who I truly believe to be my soul mate. My blog may become more about wedding planing and moving but it won’t get boring for sure!!!
