I have no idea what day it is. Probably something around day 130...

Well, I figured it's time to update everyone since we have some legitimate plans finally falling together that are different from what I posted 2 months ago. Plus everything feels more real when I share the plans and I'm not just plotting in my head. Not to mention, a few things have happened in the last 2 months.
First off, I finally settled on a ring... technically I settled on two and then Jake picked which he liked best since I couldn't decide and it was a mystery to which one until I received it. I'm extreeeemely happy with it and everyone should be jealous.
Secondly, I'm on summer break from school and have a new job at Mangos Bar & Grille and I have to say driving 15 mins to work instead of 40 is enough reason for me to like it there.
And finally, we have officially made some decisions wedding-wise. I kept flip flopping with the decision to have some semi-big (like 75 people) wedding next summer, and was constantly changing plans and finally I took that as a sign that I probably didn't actually want one, I just convinced myself I did because I wanted to pick out flowers and a dress and decorations. I knew I'd be stressed and bitchy when it finally came to putting the whole thing together and my cheap ass couldn't justify spending so much money. I also didn't like the idea of planning the whole thing without Jake here to atleast groan about being dragged to pick stuff out. I'm sure he'd participate as much as possible, but theres only so much you can control when you're on the opposite side of the world. And THEN... I came across this video:
and that's what solidified my decision making. So OFFICIALLY, for real, what we are for sure doing is going to the courthouse in December and having a small civil ceremony with close family and a handful of friends, and then celebrating out to dinner some place afterwards. I'll get the small low-key wedding I want, and Jake will get his moment to pretend we live in the 40s. Then, when Jake comes home officially in the summer, we'll probably have a very informal cookout type party that'll be a combo of a welcome home/congratulations/moving away party. The End.

Day 73?- New Decisions

Well, it's back to Vegas. That's pretty self explanatory. When exactly is all up to the silly Marine Corps (probably next August). We plan on getting officially married in December, when Jake can come home finally since they denied his request for next month... bitches. Obviously I'm bitter, so we won't go into that. We're still discussing details of whether it'll be just us or with guests, or if we'll have some sort of informal reception at home. Those things will all be hammered out eventually, and hopefully soon cause I'm an obnoxious planner and need to know all details. But to give everyone a little clue on what we really wanna do...

FYI, THAT... is the Grand Canyon.

Day 54-60: Whoopsies

Well, this blog a day thing isn't going as well as I had planned... Needless to say, I've slacked off for a week but there's still not much to update on. Nothing fun atleast. I'll try to recall...
Last week, I finished my babysitting job that was supposed to last all summer. Had the job been a dating relationship, I guess you could say it was a mutual decision to break up. When I started the job I asked if the girl had separation anxiety, cause it seemed no matter what I tried, she was unhappy and crying-- not tears and nose running crying, but more making noises and making sure you were watching her in misery crying... all... day. Well, after a month of trying different things, and experimenting with different friends/family babysitting on days I had school to see if they had the same issue, her mom finally decided she has severe separation anxiety and we ended the gig. What can I say, I'm always right.
Over the weekend I had floorset, which was nothing spectacular, but it was nice to be home during the day to hang out with Beni.
This week has been the least fun so far. My car has not been its best for quite awhile now, and it finally got to the point where my dad didn't feel safe with me driving it. We dropped it off at my cousins shop and found out both my front and rear rotor (sp?) was worn down to basically nothing (oopsies) and I was in desperate need of an alignment. So, I've been stranded bumming rides to and from school this week. How fun. But! its finally ready for pick up today, along with a nice and hefty bill. Lovely.
That being said, I think I'm returning to a picture a day on facebook and maybe this will just turn into a blog for fun wedding stuff.

Day 52 &53: I suck at this

I'm really getting terrible at this lol... probably because my life is boring. I'm trying not to obsess over wedding ideas anymore since I have a lot of time to plan and it's distracting me from doing homework, so that leaves me with no fun updates or pictures. Plus since I've been working two jobs plus school, all I want to do in my free time is sleep or play with Beni. I'm actually multitasking taking notes in my Juvenile Delinquency class and writing this right now. We're talking about drugs today and it has me considering going into customs. I honestly can't decide what I wanna do with career-wise cause theres so many interesting options in this field, so every time we have a new topic in one of my classes some other idea comes up! I'm also trying not to get my hopes set on anything since where Jake gets stationed next and his choice of whether to re-enlist in a few years will obviously affect things. I guess I'll figure it out eventually...

Day 51: Milkshakes & Movies

Since I just took all my exams last week, I decided to skip classes, sleep in and do homework today. And by homework I mean watch 2 of 5 movies I'm required to watch in one of my classes and do some discussion posts about them. What.... and exciting task.
Other than that I've just been watching tv, eating and planning my future all day. I actually just tried a recipe for a peanut butter cup milkshake. Pretty good so far.... could probably use some more peanut butter, but I'd make it again. Now I'm just awaiting the drama-filled Teen Mom 2 reunion with Dr. Drew. Woohoo, my life's exciting.
Oh, but the good news is Jake should be back to base with regular internet and skype access by this weekend. Thank you baby Jesusssss!

Day 50: This is more difficult than I thought...

"Help me, Auntie, help me..."

What's more difficult than I thought is posting a daily blog, not childcare. Ah, well, maybe I should've named it a blog most days while you're away....
