Meet the new Mrs.

Here it was, the day of the wedding, but not just THE wedding, it was MY wedding, OUR wedding!

I didn’t know what emotions to expect and could not even begin to anticipate how it would feel finally being married but it was actually happening and to my surprise I was not as emotional as I thought I might have been.

Turns out I’m not as big of a sap as I thought I was!

I was composed and ready to make it happen. Everything wasn’t complete but I didn’t let it bother me.

What could go wrong??? As long as he was there and we were pronounced husband and wife nothing else mattered.

Everyone was hustling, sweating and working, my make-up artiste was running late, guests became lost because the road sign was repainted without it’s name (great timing right! smh), DJ didn’t have some of my songs, my fiance was busy at the venue and I was ready and waiting for my mum to be organized so we could leave.

Jitters yet? Nope! But damn was I hungry! lol

My driver then needed gas and of course the gas station was full! But you guys get the drift, I was late.

However, there was not one bit of panic in me. I just kept thinking about the food….yeah food not the groom! I was that hungry!

But, when I finally got there he was all my eyes searched for. Everyone else became a blur and my face was plastered with smiles. There, at the top of the aisle, was my groom, my fiance, my husband-to-be, the love of my life, my other half, my forever…….

I dreamed about this moment for so long, being in the moment was so surreal! For the first time, I experienced being on cloud 9. I felt, light, overjoyed, calm and satisfied. The ultimate high! This was it!

No matter what the ceremony was like, unrehearsed and a bit long, my mood could not be shifted. And at the moment of I do  confidence never left my side.

Holding the shaking hands of my groom I knew this was the beginning of a new journey. For all the years that I’d known him before and all the time we spent together, all that we’d been through,NEVER have I witnessed nervousness in him and here it was. Emotions flooded in from father-daughter dance into our first dance…simply because I couldn’t be happier. The tears were testimony of that. Our lives were being joined as one, it was never going to be the same, only better!!

For the rest of the day, my heart felt joy beyond measure. Not only did I become a Mrs., I became HIS Mrs. and he, my Mr., husband and wife. Together with our daughter, our family was finally whole.

I could not have asked for a better day, with all it’s flaws, it was the best day of my life!

Four days later and my soul is still in all it’s glee, celebrating, ecstatic and at peace. A weight has been lifted and our new life is in the making.

You know that you’ve found the one when you feel like you couldn’t be happier and then that happiness is increased by that same person. When you thought neither of you could love each other more and then it happens, your hearts grow fonder of each other more than ever before. This is when you know that your love will stand the tests of time because only true love can increase extensively beyond measure without strain.

I have found my true love….

 

I look forward to what each day has in store for us, may God continue to richly bless our family. This is happiness!

Love,

Impartial me

Before you start….I have a very good reason!

Have you ever begun a sentence like this? Ready to explain yourself or pour out the excuses LOL. Well here’s my explanation for being so absent in the past month (or was it longer than that, I really can’t recall at the moment argh!).

I AM GETTING MARRIED SILLIES!! DUHH!!

hahahahaa!

Let me tell you! Wedding planning is crazy! Especially when you’re working with a tight budget and a short space of time. This wedding was officially decided upon only two months before it’s date!!

yes, we’re crazy folks!

Not to mention the fact that I have to get stuff done with my 7 month old tagging along because she has no babysitter yet (and I say yet as in, I will be arranging that soon and it’s really because she breastfeeds and doesn’t accept milk any other way!). And the guest list keeps increasing.

did I mention that THE BIG DAY is one day away after today??

HAAAA! So for those of you who have been here, you know that I’m running on E making sure everything is set. For those who haven’t been here yet or had planners then in a nutshell, I’m going a bit crazy in my head but trying to keep it cool on the outside and my body is extremely tired by the end of the day but my brain keeps thinking about stuff that I need to get done and new ideas so sleeping is a bit of a fight sometimes.

However! It’s been too long and I just wanted to share a little of what’s going on with you guys.

No, I’m not getting cold feet, neither am I excited at the moment but I’m sure I will be pumped and maybe a bit anxious once I see the decorations going up and start getting ready on the day.

Until then,

let’s go! let’s go! let’s go people!!

Just a little time for myself….a little…..

With my wedding just one month away, the stresses are piling on with planning especially since “that guy” just isn’t co-operating very efficiently and I have a very active 7 month old to deal with 24/7. So I’ve decided that at least twice a week I will dedicate a little time to pamper myself. And of course that’s understandable, we all need to make time for a little pampering but I especially do not want of lack of sleep and planning stress to be evident in my appearance on my wedding day! blehh!

Your best friend and even lover can become very bitchy and frustrating when it comes to planning events such as this, so alone time is also recommended lol. However, pampering together is awesome to calm the atmosphere and mend the little cuts and bruises suffered.

My house suddenly has lots of avocados since it is in season so I decided to do an avocado and honey face mask. Also, since I don’t pamper my hair enough, I gave it a little brushing and moisturized it and left it to rest a little for sum lovely curls up in my shower cap.

For a few minutes after, I was embracing the relaxing sensations of “me-time” and then my daughter woke up insisting she gets to me and almost rolls off the bed…BUT of course it was wonderful while it lasted and I had a great time looking at her amazed expression as she gazed upon my new look!

Like, “mom…wth!” lol!!

Best thing is, when she became curious enough to touch it, it was ok for her to do so and lick her fingers after. No worries 😀 it’s all natuuuralllee! 😉

I love this girl!! ❤

Though it was short lived, I savored it and got a smooth, clean face and shiny, curly hair out of it! And!! Fun pictures too!

Insanity to be continued….

Managing to work out before my friend’s wedding, then my cousin’s wedding and even my trip to Tobago was possible and now that I have my own wedding coming up it’s been near impossible to continue!!

It upsets me to the bone but it’s hard when you have a very active 7 month old to look after mostly on your own while tending to your daily chores, planning for a wedding that’s one month away, working part-time and preparing for school (two months away). So after many attempts I’ve decided to put my insanity on hold and basically do shorter 5-20 minute workouts that I can easily fit into my days.

Now, I ‘m not going to completely stop my insanity workouts, when the time allows I will definitely do them but once the honeymoon is over I’ll be back on the Insanity train!!!!

I am determined to be totally transformed, if not by September, by the end of the year. I must enter 2015, God’s willing, fit and toned!! Extremely sexified!! lol

Also, I do plan on doing another round of Insanity once I’m done. I won’t stop till I get my dream body!! Currently, I am 95 lbs; I aim to range between 100 and 115 and hope to get there by piling on some lean muscle mass and of course I must have that toned tummy of my dreams!

Until I fully get back on track yall go on and continue digging deeper! 😉

 

What next??

BIG SIGH!!!

As if lack of sleep, preparing for a mini vacation and getting the flu wasn’t enough to hold back my insanity progress and my blogging challenge, my daughter surprises me with a fever after some rather fussy days.

It’s the first time that she’s gotten sick so we’re both going through this as beginners.

I am somewhat relived because before I didn’t know why she was being so much of a handful, it was frustrating! But, knowing her reason makes me more affectionate towards the situation. It pains my heart to see her cranky and crying, I know too well how miserable a fever and cold can make you feel and she’s only a baby. 😥

So for now I’m stuck giving her more TLC which means lots of hugs and kisses and taking her along with me for most of the day. She’s sleeping on my chest at the moment! It’s not a problem, I love the time together despite the reason but I know it’s going to help her through it. It just means little to no time for catching up on my blogging challenge and Insanity workout.

The only issue is that she’s breastfeeding less and not eating or drinking as much as before but I’m not giving up it’s just going to take more patience and effort out of me. Life of being a mom right!!

BUT, the more things get held back (mainly insanity) the more important they’re becoming because guess what! I’m getting married in August!! lol Yes! So I really want my body to be in great shape by then! I guess it’s just going to take more out of me when I get started by the end of the week.

Essentially it comes down to a strictly clean diet and sticking to my workouts. There’s going to be lots of digging deep and pushing through until August!!

Arghhh….

What can I say?? Bring it on I guess!

Family Surprise!!

My grandparents are getting married!!!! Last night my grandfather proposed to my grandmother in his own weird way lol!! “I think it’s time to show the world who you belong to…” was one of his crazy lines!! My grandfather isn’t the mushy type, but he is loving in his own way when you get past the hard exterior.

We’re all excited!! I’m not sure of the exact figure but they’ve been together over 30 years now and were blessed with 5 children, 9 grandchildren and one great grandchild so far!!

Here’s to wedding bells!!
