Wedding dresses

Today I am going to try on wedding dresses for the first time.  The wedding isn't for a year and a half, but I figure I might as well start with something I can kind of understand.  Plus, I am 5'2" and let's just say curvy, so finding a dress is going to be a challenge.

This is something girls are supposed to like right?  So why am I nervous as all hell?  I'm kind of scared that the people in the store are going to tell me I don't belong there, and that I am just going to end up looking like a big white marshmallow puff.  Hoping I'll get some decent pictures, and get a better idea of what I am looking for in a dress by the end of the day.

Doctor Who

It's Friday....which means that yesterday was Thursday.  And Thursday at our house means two things:  brinner and Doctor Who.  Now I am not sure when this tradition got started, and I have no idea what we are going to do once we watch through all the episodes of Doctor Who on Netflix (unless we go back and watch the old Doctor Who episodes...and I am not sure if I am that brave).

Doctor Who is a British Sci-Fi show about a man (or well a Time Lord) who travels throughout time and space in his blue police box called the Tardis.  Throughout the seasons he has different companions with him, and encounters many different enemies including the Daleks and Cybermen.  We seriously love this show.  Last year for Halloween my fiance dressed up as the 10th doctor.  Oh yeah, the doctor doesn't die, he regenerates.  So far we are on our third doctor, although in chronology he is the 11th doctor.  Even though this is a sci-fi show, it has a ton of heart.  We love the show so much that we have painted our bathroom door to look like the Tardis, have multiple props from the show in our living room, and we have a beautiful Dalek poster above our DVD display case.

If you haven't watched it, give it a chance.  And if you don't cry at the end of series 4, then you have no soul.

Blog a day is going strong...for two whole days!

And, for granted anyone reading this blog probably already knows this cause I bet only my friends (if that) ever read it...but I'm getting married!!!!!

Last week, on our one year anniversary, my very awesome boyfriend (now fiance!) and I got engaged.  I'm excited, in love, elated, happy, and SCARED TO DEATH!  Why?  Because I have NO clue how to put together a wedding.  Now, I have a year and a half.  We haven't set an official date, but we are thinking Fall 2013.  But, that doesn't make me feel more relaxed at all.  I am not sure where to start exactly, other than looking at dresses and color schemes because those are fun to Google.  I signed up at The Knot website, but they are kind of fancy and complicated.  Anyone out there want to help a girl?

Do I start figuring out a rough guest list?  Do I just go try on pretty dresses?  How do I figure out a budget?  The only thing I know for sure is that I need to hunt down a gluten free bakery so I can have a wedding cake that I can actually eat.

Blog a day

Ok, well, I've decided I am going to try doing this more of a blog a day thing.  Because honestly, I suck at blogging....which is pretty darn obvious.  So, I figure maybe I can challenge myself to blog almost every day (I might take weekends off).  Even if it is small, I can post.  Maybe I will get followers, maybe I will connect with people, or maybe I will just feed my own ego.

So, today I will start with a picture, because everyone loves pictures right?  Here's my "hopefully this this a good idea??  What is the cat doing over there?????" face.
