New blog

So, you voted, and I can't be lazy. I set up a new blog and even have already posted on it!!

John Paul said he didn't need to be involved in the blogging, so I was selfish and just used my new name. Which is still so weird to see!! See you around the new blog!

one week later

So, we've been married a week now. It's strange. Things are still the same, yet way different. Found out he snores and steals covers, he found out I like to sing in the shower, but don't realize that I do it.

I feel sorry for him because he's got a lot of on campus interviews, tests, and homework and getting married added a lot of things for him to do. He's been trying to figure out all sorts of insurance and financial information, and I've been feeling more pressure because I'm the only one making money, and now that we are married we are spending more money. Not to mention that changing your name on everything is crazy!!

So, a week later we are happy but really stressed. Hopefully things will die down in a month or so... wait then it's the holidays lol. What were we thinking? ( we were thinking why wait any longer 5.5 years was long enough) any thoughts or prayers you can send our way will be greatly treasured.

oh, and do I need to get a new blog because my name changed? vote in the poll!! I was toying around checking and it's exciting that Essex isn't a common last name, and neither is John-Paul lol. There's a lot of options to choose from!

I'm a Mrs.!!!

We are finally married!! I'll be getting the large file pictures from Jackie (the photographer) tonight, so I'll post some then.

There's always so much to do when you get back from vacation, and I have to do all the name changing stuff on top of that!!

Everyone at work told me I looked really tired today. I thought that was a little mean of them, I mean, I just got married! lol!

Kansas City was great, and I'm looking forward to going back in a few years for our anniversary!

more details/ pictures to come!

Bachelorette party!!

so my friends came from all over to help me celebrate the fact I'm getting married in just a few days. it was fun and embarassing! My friend Amy brought the veil her mom wore when she got married 30 years ago!

I made a fun cake, and we went out to a piano bar and I had to be sang to. The man was crude, but it was fun!!

Just a few more days!!

So much is going on I haven't really had time to write. Even with not doing anything really big for a wedding, it still takes a lot of time to get married!!

The reception is turning out to be kindof a big deal, but luckily a lot of people are helping with it.

I think if I can survive the next 8 days, I'll be fine!
