Bride to Wife

Last night marked the end of my single-dom.
Last night, I got married.
Last night, not only did I ring in the New Year with my brand spanking new husband, but I also became a wife!
Now, that I'm a wife, you can join me on my new adventures at my new blog.
Click the kiss to join me!!!!

Today is THE Day

It's New Year's Eve 2010.
I am marrying my best friend.
I can't believe this day is all ready here.
Since I was little, I had longed for this day, and now that it's here, I'm wishing time had slowed down.
I didn't know it would be here so quickly!
For the first time all week, I don't have somewhere to rush off to in the morning.
I am lounging in bed at my parent's place before I tackle a few last minute errands.
I am hoping that this day will be relaxing and not stressful.
The church is decorated; the reception hall has been decorated since Wednesday morning; the rehearsal is complete.
Now, all that's left on my To Do List is to relax and enjoy this day.
I'm fairly certain that I can succeed in this task.
In less than 12 hours, I will be pronounced Mrs. GrapeJuice, and we will live in peace and harmony for the next seventy plus years!
What a way to ring in the new year.
2011, here we come!!!!!!!!

Please Reset Me

 I am most definitely in panic mode. 
With only two weeks left until the wedding date, I'm starting to freak out a little bit here. It hit me last night that we haven't even gone to get our marriage license! {oh dear...} Plus, I haven't finished Christmas shopping. AND, to top it all off, our house had a carbon monoxide leak that lead to our heat having to be turned off which means that we're obviously not living there right now which means that I'm not able to get some wedding things finished up...unless I decide to brave my house which is probably 40 degrees inside. Also, we're expecting Mr. GrapeJuice's family to stay with next week (if we have heat by then)! WHY NOW??! And because all this craziness if going on, I keep eating junk so now I might not even fit into my dress!!!!!!! Please pray for my sanity as I live with my parents, buy last minute Christmas gifts, finish up all the last minute details of my wedding, and hope that I fit into my gorgeous dress. Hopefully, I'll be back with better news tomorrow.

Music Monday - Shrek

Please excuse me as I crawl out from under the rock that I have been hiding under.
We have less than two months until our wedding day.
I would really love to know where all the time went...!
I seriously hope life will begin to slow down at some point...
Please tell me that it does {or, at least, lie to me...}!!

I waited all my life
Lived it by the book
Now I know that's not my story
You take me as I am
Love me as I look
Standing here in all my glory

I am sweetness
I am bratty
I'm a princess
I'm a fatty
I'm a mess of contradictions in a dress
I am sassy
I am sappy
When I'm with you, I am happy

This is my story

You laugh at all my jokes
Even though they're crude
You don't mind that I'm not classy

We make a perfect pair
Radiant and rude
So in love and much too gassy

We are ogres
We are scary

We are donkeys
We are hairy
We have bold and brand new stories to be told
We will write them
We will tell them
You will hear them
You will smell them

This is our story

[Spoken by Shrek]
...And that is how the little ogre came to live on the swamp with a beautiful princess-

[Donkey butts in]
AND his best friend!

[Shrek correcting himself]
AND his best friend!

[Fairytale Creatures joining in]
And a gingerbread man!
And a very handsome puppet!
And an elf!
And a fairy godmother!
And a witch!
And a cross-dressin' wolf!
And the three pigs!

[Sung by all]
What makes us special
(What makes us special)
What makes us special
(What makes us special)
What make us special makes us strong!

We are witches
We are fairies
We are weirdos

[Shouted by Pinocchio]

[All Singing]
We're a giant Whitman’s sampler here to try

We are puppets
We are rabbits
We are hobbits with bad habits
We're a screwy but reliant crazy stew
We are different and united
You are us and we are you

This is our story
This is our story
This is our story

[Gingy shouting]

[Sung by all]
