Thirty days = One Month = time until I get married. Hip Hip Hooray! It is coming quick (but still not quick enough for me). As it gets closer I am suddenly much more motivated to do wedding stuff. I think it is the procrastinator in me. Does much better under pressure. And I am just excited to be getting so close to "I Do" day.
I feel like I have so much to talk to you about but am afraid my thoughts aren't going to make it all into this post.
Speaking of thoughts....and feelings....and emotions....and hormones: Mine have been adjusting. I thought I felt insane before, but birth control has proven me wrong. For some reason I want to cry all day long on Sundays. I become ultra paranoid/jumpy at night. Some of that I can blame on living alone, but it has gotten worse since I started popping pills. And then there is the anger. I apologize if you have been apart of my angry days.
New subject. The new blog. I have chosen a name. Thank you Brittani and Steph for your suggestions. Stay tuned for the new blog's grand opening. And no, I am not going to tell you the name just quite yet. And just to make it a little more interesting, I will force Ronnie to do a post every once in a while. He is a natural with words. And humor. And making things interesting. And if he were typing this, he would have to add muscles. (he just said "it is kind of true I guess")
I recently started my own eBay account. Oh boy. I now see why Ronnie is such an avid eBay-er. I have been obsessing over vintage swimsuits. Yes, actual swimsuits form the 40's, 50's, and 60's. They are oh so cute and oh so perfect for the honeymoon in Hawaii!
My girls at work recently spoiled me with a little get away to Park City for a day and a night out in the country. Dream come true? Yes. It was SO nice to have a little get away. They are so sweet (and some of the only girl friends I have here in Utah).
You know who is my best friend though? R himself. We like to go on dates together and do fun things. We recently went to a car show. It was a blast! We got a little crisp in the sun and I found my dream truck. A '59 Chevy Apache. It is beautiful. Ronnie said I am allowed to buy one someday. I will.
You know what else I will do soon...as in June 4th? Go through the temple for the first time. I just found out that it takes about 3 hours your first time. Please tell me they serve snacks somewhere in that 3 hour span. Is there like a Relief Society portion with home baked goods? Will they let me take a tour of the kitchen half way through? All of this unknown is kind of killing me. I am a control freak when it comes to change, so I am sure God is having a good laugh at this one. Oh, and don't worry. The temple I was looking forward to going though because I have had siblings get married there, and it is beautiful (Mt. Timpanogos)is closed until June 7th! Is it bad that I don't want to go to the Provo temple because it is hideous? *que lightening bolt*
Well there is my ramble of thoughts. Let the count down continue!

Thoughts on Love...capital L

I never thought of myself as a girl who likes to get flowers.  I always said I would rather have some chocolate or sour patch watermelons over flowers. I was wrong.
R: "You used to not like flowers much did you?"
M: "Not until you came along. Now I love getting them."
R: "I guess it's not the flowers, but who brings them."

Wise man, that Ronnie. And he is right. He could bring me roses spray painted turquoise and I'd love them (ok, he did. And I did love them, after I giggled for a minute).

Speaking of spray painting...I have been busy sprucing up old picture frames I bought at estate sales and painting a plain old white cabinet sea foam green/blue with the help of my brothers sander and my sister in law's great taste in paint. I want mine and Ronnies first place to be US. That mean antique-ifying and unique-ifying. It is coming along nicely. The only thing missing is Ronnie (to be added in June) and visitors. Please come!

Now about Love. The Beatles were right. It is all you need. I never realized how different my future would look once I nabbed me some Love. I was perfectly happy with the future I had in mind PreRonnie. Now I am realizing how many more possibilities I have. Like, I don't know, having kids! (Don't take that as a baby hunger pains. I will be taking my little pill faithfully for quite some time). But, really, I am having fun thinking forward.

Now for your input. I have been racking my brain for a new blog title once the plunge has happened. All I have come up with is...eh hmmm...ready?

The Squire and I

I need more ideas! I will be scoring all ideas on a very complex grading system so I cant exactly explain it, even to myself. But titles using "cane" or references to Ronnies overall sauveness get double points.

The Gimp and his Pimp would get rhyming points, but demerits for overall tackiness. Get the idea? Can't wait to hear them!
