And I’m Back

Well kind of. Since summer started I began working for a theater company and had no life what so ever. Things have been settling down and sadly we have decided to push the wedding back. Between time and money this will work out better. However I will still be working on things.

As well as posting wedding stuff, I have decided to also use this as a home and life blog as well. We have lived in our apartment for over 2 years and we don’t have any plans on moving any time soon. I have been bitten with the creative bug and realized I need to make this look like a home not a Florida apartment.  It will be budget friendly, often geeky, and I am trying to re-do a lot of stuff that we had that just looked tired. I will also be trying new products out and let you know what works and what doesn’t.

I am sorry that I was gone for so long, I will try not to do that again!

 

A New Chapter!

Things are starting to go kind of fucking awesome for me. Normally I am happy with life, it has its ups and downs, but this is the first time in a long, loooonnnnggg time that I have been this excited. Not only are we 5 months away from our wedding but I am starting a new job that is right up my alley. I will be helping teach children in the arts. Not only that but I get to help set design and assist with stage managing for a theater in town. I am also involved in an improve group and a burlesque show, and helping set up a show for the fall.
That is a lot right? For most people yes, but I also have decided to open my own etsy store. I noticed that while planning our wedding a couple things. 1 there is not much out there for the geek bride. One reason why I am making 95% of what we have is because of the fact that there was nothing, or if there was it wasn’t bridal enough. Second I had to go through five thousand vendors to get a look I wanted. My store will be all fandom styles, and in each fanom there will be hair things for both bride and brides maids as well as jewelry for both, save the date magnets and shoe clips. This way a bride can have a one stop shop or pick and choose. Also everything will be customization.
I am really feeling amped! Maybe it is because we have started painting the house in bright colors, or maybe because it is not raining as much. Either way I don’t care, I am ready for this challenge and I have my guns a blazing.
The Mr. seems to be super happy about it as well. He works so much but now that I will be able to pay more bills, it is taking the pressure off of him. He is super supportive.
Let this adventure begin.

I’m still here and the wedding is still on!

Well hello there! It’s been a while. What have I been up too? Oh boy that is a loaded question. I just finished my five week run as Ulla in The Producers about a month ago and in April I was not only Khelisse but the Disney version on Princess Leia. Currently I have been casted as a player in an improve group and might be singing for a local burlesque group. I am also writing two musicals, one about PacMan and one about Jurassic Park. OHHHHhhhh and planing a wedding. How could I forget about our wedding that is 6 months away.
Did that last sentence sound sarcastic? Well it is because every one and there mother is asking me about our dam wedding. Do you have a dress? Why yes I have both of them now, both pairs of shoes and I just need both dresses taken in. Do you have a venue? No, no I don’t, *insert nervous chuckle here*
It does bother me that we don’t know where we are having the ceremony or dinner, but it is very hard for some one to go venue shopping when you know you don’t have the money for the down payment at the moment. I have had some one offer money up to help with that, so we will be looking fairly soon to book a place because, well we only have 6 months left.

Ring Exchange Wording Complete!

Since I had a day off, I have been doing random stuff, like actually writing updates, and sewing. But I decided to watch Game of Thrones. More specifically S2 Ep10. I have been wanting to do this because we wanted to use the wording in the brief wedding (I won’t say who so no spoilers) in our wedding as well. We have up to Ep 9 on our computer and found another gem between our favorite couple. So I actually took the time and wrote them down, then combined them :) I am like a happy little girl!!! I never thought that I would ever say this but I am in love with the ring exchange wording. I feel silly saying it but it is very true. Ok here it is. Should I make any adjustments? Am I forgetting anything important in them?

Ring Exchange:

Officiant: look upon one another, and say the words:
(Same order as vows, we will be thumb wrestling to see who goes first)
Kat: Until the sun rises in the west and sets in the east,
Until the rivers run dry and the mountains blow in the wind like leaves i am his and he is mine from this day until the end of my days,

Kyle:Until the sun rises in the west and sets in the east,
Until the rivers run dry and the mountains blow in the wind like leaves i am hers and she is mine from this day until the end of my days,

Officiant: And in the sight of everyone I hear by see you these two souls binding them as one for eternity

How To: My Pacmen Chair Backs

2012-12-27_23-51-48_908

So I finished one of my things on my list YAY! And that would be my Mr. and Mrs. Pacman chair backs. We aren’t doing chair covers or anything else but I did like the idea of having something on our chairs. Since we have this thing with the Pacman family I thought this would be perfect to incorporate them, and since we are on a budget I found a cheap easy way to get the look I wanted.

Here are my tools I used:

I messed up his proposal

So because I am awkward, I tend to ruin all surprises  And I did not fail to do so last night. We were sitting in the around the area were we met over two years ago and I teased him about being official official  We have been engaged for a year now but he want to talk to my dad and make it special. So I was joking when I said, “You know what would be awesome sauce, if we could announce to the word we are getting married.” He looked at me and gave me a sigh and pulled out the 50 cent ring he first drunkposed to me with. Then he said this,” I know I don’t have the real ring right now, but I love you, and I want to make sure before 2013 starts that you are no longer my “girlfriend”. What do you think? Will you marry me?” Then me being a dumb ass, had to say, “For real, like are you being serious???” Then I said yes. I guess his plan was dropping on one knee in our new years kissing spot, (We have had our last two kisses there) and that he thought I felt the ring in his pocket when I was holding his hand while driving.

For me it was perfect, just us.

Hair Color, Oh MY!

Well I figured I would be a red head at the wedding or atleast some where in between a red head and a blonde, but then I got a part in a show that I need to be a platium blonde. So this happend last week….

Now I know it doesn’t look that bad but I don’t know if I like my wedding outfit with this hair. I would dye it back after April but I am so scared to put my hair under that stress.I mean I still have about one more bleaching session to remove the last pieces or light orangy yellow from my hair. Maybe it is because of the extreme but do I look like a total fool?
