* My car is messing up, it has been for awhile now. It keeps having the battery light come on for like 5 seconds then back off, we thought it was fixed but it came back on yesterday so my dad came down today to look at it, and hopefully it is fixed. We also went to eat at Sonny's.

* This past weekend Chad & I went home, we hung out with some of his friends on Thursday and we had a good time. The funny thing is I use to go to school with the friends and we never really talked so I just found it odd.

* Thursday we also went and seen my grandpa and grandma. Also ran by and seen my aunt, uncle, & cousins for a few minutes (can’t go home without seeing them).

(chad working on my car this morning)

* Friday afternoon, we went bowling and out to eat with my friend Erika and her boyfriend and had a good time as well. And Friday night we hung out with Laura and Brendan and I got to finally see their new little girl Madison (She’s 3 months old now, school gets in the way of life).

* Saturday and Sunday we hung out with Chad’s family and played a few card games.

* This week has just been work and relaxing and we plan to do the same this weekend. We might actually go somewhere, but were not positive yet. This past Monday I learned how to drive a stick shift for a little bit, Chad taught me. We also have been looking at houses on the net just dreaming about when that time comes.

* Hopefully next week I will be able to get an interview with my internship for the fall, I got an email for possible dates but cannot pick yet because I have not got next weeks work schedule.

Be prepared for the unprepared.

When people tell me that they are getting married soon, this is the number one advice I give them because not only is it true about marriage in everyday life, it is definitely true about the wedding day, especially outdoor weddings.

Let’s just say we were NOT prepared at all. And hopefully you can learn from our mistakes.

-We could not decorate until the morning of and instead of letting others handle it I decided that I wanted to help. Bad idea. I was late to everything else the rest of the day, even the wedding.

Lessons learned: Have decorations close to venue. The bride does not have to help decorate if it will cause more stress. And decorate early if can.

-Please let your soon to be husband know that you have more to do then he does to get ready for the big day. Men only have to put on their tux, show up a little before the wedding, and relax. So what happened on my wedding day because of this? Chad kept texting me and asking me details about what was going on all day… when I did not have a clue and did not have time to have a clue.

Lessons learned: Have a paper for things that are needed to know for the whole bridal party (e.g. where decorations go, picture times, when to show up, etc.), we also did not get to do the sand ceremony because it was not placed out there because nobody but me knew. Let your man know you are not ignoring him that day, but you will be busier and to just be


-We did not do pictures until after the wedding, which meant half the guests left even before we really got to talk to them or get any pictures with them as well.

Lessons learned: try and get as many pictures of the bridal party if you can before the wedding. Have a receiving line so you can say hello to your guests for a couple of minutes at least (we did this, but I still do not think it was enough). Snag pictures of people that want to leave early before the bridal party pictures. Ask family members to take pictures of guests at your wedding. I got a lot of good shots of things from other people that were taking pictures when I did not know. 

-Summer outdoor weddings are HOT!

Lessons learned: Balloons pop. People leave right after the wedding. Cakes melt.

-Lastly, as I stated before I ended up late to my wedding.

Lessons learned: Be as close to the venue as possible when getting ready, I had a friend that lived closer than what I planned and should have gotten ready there.

Even though all these disasters happened on my wedding day and at times I thought I was going to die of embrassement, the wedding still went on and Chad and I were still married. Once again I found out who really loved us that day because a few people stayed out in the hot weather to wait to see us after pictures and helped us clean up and we still had a blast that day and will remember that day forever as perfect because we got to marry each other.

A Wedding Without Pinterest

I got the idea to post a little about my wedding day from the Frill of Life. 

I often joke from time to time that I would have liked to have seen what my wedding would have been like if Pinterest had been around then. Pinterest came out a few months after my wedding, and to say I was a little upset is an understatement, especially when it comes to the photography ideas on there for weddings (remember I am a picture freak!). I still plan on renewing our vows down the road so maybe then we can use a few of those ideas.

Anyways, Chad and I got married in 2011, a year after us coming to a big university, the parents were not too happy about the thought of us getting married young because of financial resources not being abundant, but in some ways being married in college has helped us save money (ex. dorm fees). We wanted to get married then and knew if we waited we were only making others happy, not us.

To make sure there were no financial burdens I would later regret if I spent a ton of money on this wedding, I did some research and digging on a lot of things that were in my wedding in order to make it cheaper.

First, I made my wedding invitations with the help of a friend. And another friend helped me tie those bows one by one onto the invitations. (Thanks Neale & Kristen)

Then, my wedding dress, I found it on the clearance rack and it was actually 2 sizes too small, but the sales associates assured me it could be taken out to fit so I bought for $100. The bridesmaids wore black dresses they already had & fixed their own hair as well.

Chad’s tux was rented and we decided that we would get the basic tux rental for $65 and I still to do this day am in love with him in this tux. The groomsmen wore black slacks and white button ups that they already had and I bought them ties on amazon for $5.

The venue was the hardest to find because I wanted an outdoor wedding and not a popular location, my mom found the Natural Arch about 30 minutes away. And for $50 for the shelter area and the amptheatre it too was a steal!

The decorations and flowers that we had were bought by my mom and Chad’s mom and dad so I have no idea how much those really cost. But, I know they were cheaper than usual because Chad’s dad worked at the flower shop.

The cake, photography, my hair, and the music were all done by friends as gifts, but we did tip them. (Thanks Courtney, Laura, Jamie, & Jeff)

After all is said and done, I do not regret not having some things at my wedding in order to make it cheaper, I had everything I wanted and more there. And I realized I had a great group of friends and family that loved me and Chad to make this wedding happen and to make it great.

Tomorrow I will talk about wedding details on the day of and then Thursday I will talk about our Honeymoon.

Sorry for the delay, I had contemplated on whether I should post today or not because I do not know what to say, but here goes nothing. 

- Dollywood last week was amazing! One cousin, the youngest only went but she did so good I cannot wait to do something like that again. There were only a few times she would get a little fussy but not bad at all and other times when she was just being a kid, I do not know how I will be able to parent at times in certain situations when that time comes. 

- Chad is done with summer classes, so we are trying to read two books together before school starts back: Total Money Makeover & Real Marriage.. I love books about marriage and learning how to manage money. And Chad also did super good in his summer classes, we still need to celebrate. 

- I believe we are going to visit family tomorrow up through the weekend for the 4th, we have plans to visit friends and to see their baby on Friday which we haven't got to meet yet because of how crazy school is, she is 3 months now. And Saturday, going to a park event to see fireworks maybe. 

- We also might try Firehouse Subs at home as well as a pottery place possibly, I love our new little city we are living in right now, but there is also things I just love about my hometown but sadly I do not see it going anywhere fast as far as business wise for careers, especially for Chad wanting to be a teacher. 

- And possibly have my internship placement for fall, but have not heard any email back from the contact person so fingers crossed.

I am linking up with In This Wonderful Life and seeing if I will start this new thing possibly so I will write more.

- Since today is Wednesday, its Wing Wednesday for me and Chad today at Pizza Hut. It is a weekly tradition to get wings always today because they are on sale on Wednesdays. I prefer their wings over any because they are breaded and love their sauce.

- This past weekend Chad and I went home to be in our friends wedding and it was great, the bride was beautiful and we had a blast.

- But because I ran around to help make the day as special as possible for the bride and groom (Matron oh Honor duty!), I regretted it on Monday and Tuesday. Monday, my body physically ached and Tuesday I slept in after I got back from work at 9am until 2pm. I don't know if it was a mixture of working, the wedding, and taking pictures or what but I feel better today.

- We also did a photo shoot at Chad's house on Saturday after the wedding. I had scored 7 dresses from Maurices Friday for $13 a piece and I was happy because I needed them so I thought I mys well make my wedding hair and makeup worth it and asked Chad's dad to take our pictures around their house and I love how they turned out.

- Tomorrow, I am heading back home to go with my mom to take my two little cousins to Dollywood on Friday, I can't wait!


Working on it

I'm feeling 22?? hmm whatever!

Today is my 22nd birthday and I do think that I might feel a little different, but maybe that just has to do with the Taylor Swift song (that I don't even really like to be honest). But anyways, I thought I would share 22 things about me, mostly some you probably don't know.

1. These two people, my mom and Carl came to surprise me today for my birthday! They didn't even work the plan out together, but it worked out perfectly. They have gotten me where I am at in life today and appreciate them very much. 

2. I am an only child, but was raised in daycares. I think it helped me a ton in life and know I want my kids to have the same. 

3. I think the world of my friends and would do anything for any of them. And sometimes overthink friendships because of it. 

4. My favorite food is Chicken Fingers. I joke that that is why I knew Chad was the one because he likes them too and does them the same way I do. 

5. My favorite place to eat is a three way tie between Krystals, Mr.Gattis, & Sonny's.

6. When I was little I wanted to be a Librarian.

7. I also grew up in a single mom household, but once again I am glad I did it has taught me a lot about laugh that I do not think I would have learned otherwise.  

8. Carl, the guy above has pretty much been a dad to me. He has been the guy I could talk to about anything and just listen and sometimes that is all you need. 

9. Mountain Dew and Kit Kats use to be my thing, until recently now I am trying to kick them and drink water instead. 

10. My marriage role models include the people in our sunday schools as well as my aunt and uncle. I think they all have really shown me what it means to have a Godly marriage. 

11. My little cousins: Cali & Tyler are more like my little brother and sister to me. I cherish them dearly and love them tons. 

12. I have 3 tattoos: Clover, Daisy, and a Bow

13. I love learning things as a student and love going to college. But I am pretty sure all my social work friends know that about me. 

14. People think I am smart because I do things earlier, but the truth is I make average grades and only do stuff about 3-4 days its due before. 

15. I am super organized. 

16. I worry about things and others a lot. 

17. I love going to peddlers malls, yard sales, and antique stores. Chad hates it. I have a feeling I will get worse after we get a house. 

18. I have lived in an apartment my whole life. 

19. I love to go fishing and have bonfires.

20. I knew Chad before he really knew me. I had a crush on him for a good while before we actually were introduced.

21. I love board games.

22. I love taking pictures.

What have I learned after 2 years

A few seconds ago I posted what Chad and I did yesterday for our anniversary, but now I wanna post what I have learned after being married for 2 years. 

I have learned to lean on Chad more than I thought I would before. He really is my best friend. This past year has been really hard and crazy hectic with school and friendships for me, and time and time again Chad has been there when I was feeling down. He has taught me to smile no matter what. And I believe this is why this year has been a little harder for me because God was trying to show me how much I mean to Chad and that he really will do anything for me! 

I also know he will do anything for me, because he really does! He takes responsibility to clean the house with me, to cook with me or for me, and just listens to me rant about something he really could care less about. He also helped me last year through the whole month with the hairline fracture, which was the worse thing ever to me. I know I can count on him.

He's the first person I wanna hang out with, but I am also glad we have gained friends at church that we can relate to about being married. As well as other married friends. That has been another hard thing for me to deal with is having understanding friends really understand what it means to be married. It means I will choose him to be with it over you. Sorry, but he was here first and will always be here. Plus sometimes I just have more fun with him to be honest, I mean why else would I have married him?

Happy Us.

Yesterday was Chad and I's anniversary, 2 years and I must say yesterday was pretty awesome! It all started with Chad going to class and I ended up going shopping with my birthday money (yep my birthday is sunday). I was trying to find a little boutique called DSP studio, at first I could not find it because downtown is very hard to get around in so I continued to run some of the other errands I had to do, which included side trips to Rue 21, Deb, and TJ Maxx (no finds in any of them) and then back home to check directions again. Finally found DSP after my 2nd go and I fell in love, it was a cute little store with cute clothes and amazing jewelry.
 here are my finds from DSP.

then I headed off to Walmart to give it one last go for a shirt I might wear for last night. and as usual, I had Success! And only $3! Chad was impressed! He does not see the point of girls spending money on clothes, makeup, jewelry, or purses but I always think its funny to show him that hey I could be worse I don't spend a lot of money on that stuff to begin with and thats what makes my purchases feel like they are okay, especially if it is with my money.

After I got back from shopping, Chad had returned from class and we decided to go to Hall's on the River, which is a restaurant on the river! It was nice and the food was pretty good, but we learned to stick with the basics of food instead of trying to go all out just because it's our anniversary. Hall's even ended up giving us a free dessert to celebrate! and it was amazing! 

Afterwards we ended up stopping by Bdubs to hangout with some friends that were celebrating birthdays this week. Including mine! 3 of us have the same birthday, June 9th! so its pretty awesome and we had a good time there. 

Here is a pic we took at home when we got back. The pic I am holding is from our first year and the pic I was holding there was from our wedding day. 

Here is Chad at Hall's. The love of my life, has been with me for almost 4 years and makes me laugh most of the time. But also listens to me cry and loves me through  both happy and sad and many more. He's my bff for life and I don't know where I would be without him. Here's to 100 more babe.

Worry about nothing. Pray about everything.

I have been going to church my whole life, church has always been very important to me. I went to Sunday school when I was little, went to church camp 2 summers and loved every moment of it. God has always been there for me through everything, especially during college he has always provided what I needed. 

My mom is the main reason I know God and church has been very important to me throughout my life and even though sometimes I did not want to go, she made me go through those times. And I'm glad she did. 

In October 2009 after me and chad started dating I knew things might change, I wanted a man that went to church with me but I knew I could not force him to go if he did not want to but I would always invite him from time to time just to show him it was up to him but if he wanted to come I would not mind. 

I was so glad he eventually decided to come. But nervous at the same time. I went to a pentacostal church and loved everything about it, it was a part of me. But sometimes others that have never experienced something like that do not know what to think because they do not understand it. 

The day he came, let's just say everyone was feeling God's presence in a big way and I was afarid that Chad might freak. But once again God was affecting Chad and I that day and he did not freak nor did he do anything else but sit there. 

I knew right then he was the one for me. He never judges others and is very open to things he might not fully understand. Yes, he did ask questions afterwards about some things but it is expected because he had never experienced something like that before. And even when he asked questions it was respectful the way he asked them. 

He continued to go with me to church and told me that before he used to go to church with his parents when he was little but after a little while they decided to stop going. We hope one day they will start going back again. 

Fast forward to 2010 when we started going to college, which was an hour away from home... I did not see the possibility of being able to go home every weekend to go to church so we began church hunting. 

Most people are not as lucky as we are but the first church we tired was the one we have been going to ever since, We love the people there and the pastor's sermons are amazing but we have hit a few bumps along the way since we have been going.

First bump was in June 2011 when we just got married we were afraid we would not find an apartment that was located near our college because it is very hard to find apartments in a college town and I prayed every single night for a good while that God give us a place because I felt like we belonged in that church. Thankfully we were able to live in campus housing for married students which is a big blessing in itself because not only is it near the church, its on campus so it saves us money for gas as well as it is cheaper than most apartments around town. We also can stay here through masters which is something we might do if we decide to do masters right after bachelors. It was like God knew we needed to stay here because of church.

God has been with me through changing my major, my marriage, my wedding, my scholarship opportunity... everything. I have always asked for God to do whatever he believes is best for me. 

The second bump is a little more recent... 2012. I still kind of struggle with this from time to time. It is finding couples, especially ones that like the same things we do, are able to hangout with us from time to time and have the same values as us. Like I have said in the past, Chad is my best friend so we do a lot of things together. And I believe having couples that you can be friends with is an amazing idea, but also a hard one. We have gotten involved with a couples Sunday school that we love, but I still struggle to have a personal connection with one of those couples or another couple that comes from somewhere else. 

It is something that we pray about and hope God will provide healing or friendships, whatever he wants. I believe it is something I struggle with more than Chad does, and I believe God wants me to grow through this struggle which I am trying to do so. 

Chad and I still have fights and still are not perfect, but we know with God in our marriage we will not fail. We pray to him every night together and I believe this is very important, we also read the bible together and do devotionals together before going to bed, something I hope we can always do together. 


A couple with God in their marriage

Newlyweds in College

If you have been following my blog for awhile or know me personally, you know that I am married to my husband and also pursuing a bachelors degree in social work then afterwards going for my masters possibly. My husband, Chad is also going to college right now pursuing an Education degree in middle school math and English.  We also are still young, 21 and 22. 

Balancing both full-time school schedules, a marriage, and other activities such as church and work is hard work. It is something that must be constantly worked on every single day in order to make everything flow smoothly. Especially our marriage. 

Some people that have other things going on that are older than us, can't make it work and resort to divorce. But when we married we knew this was not an option, so how do we make it work you ask?

Well as I kind of talked about in the last post we make time for everything. We have a schedule that includes homework, school, work, free time for yourself, and free time for us. Sometimes this also requires waking up earlier or staying up later to do a paper, but we know that if we do this that we will get to hangout together without homework. 

We have a date night once a week. We are hoping we can keep this trend up for life, but with kids later it might not be realistic, but we know that once a month is even nice. Even if its just going out for pizza or bringing a movie home to watch, pretty much just relax and be with each other time. 

We also voice our schedules to each other every day to see if there is extra time for us to do something or not. I know this may seem like a lot, but if Chad is working on homework then why not do the same when I see he is or take some me time if I don't have any homework at the moment. Our schedules always change from day to day so others might only have to do this once a week.

Pinterest Lover, Sims 3 Player, Secret Dance Routines in the Living Room

The title is just about some of the things I love to do when I have a moment to myself to unwind and do not have mountains of homework to do. I also love to watch HGTV and different shows that Chad says he will never watch (even though I have talked him into it a few times). We all need our own time to ourselves to unwind, to do whatever we want because it helps keeps us sane. I get that, but most people don't or do to a certain extent.. but not when it comes to this... 

Yes the video gaming thing that man crave at some point in their lives. Yes, I am so going there. I have an avid gamer that I live with, not only does he play xbox, but he also built his own computer to play computer games, so hes pretty serious about it. And yes his computer has crashed and he has had a meltdown a time or two lol. And I love watching him play video games when I can. The graphics and colors are awesome on the computer! I can see why he wanted to switch. He also watches gameplays on YouTube. 

I know he accepts my hobbies that I like to do as well, so I should accept his. We give each other time each week to be able to do these hobbies while the other is doing homework, at work, or doing their hobbies. Most girls I have talked to say that playing video games are silly or he's not a man or they do not understand. I say well, how many guys do you know that have a Pinterest account? Not many. Men and women are different, we are all going to like different things. And he could have another hobby that I would not like at all, like going to bars or something like that, so I am glad Chad plays video games and does not have some other habit that I would consider bad. 

But, do not think we do not spend time together either. 
We have a special date night where we hang out just the two of us as well, and push homework and hobbies to the side. We do things we enjoy together that night. If we also have more free time from homework for each other during the week we go for a walk or watch TV together. 

I know I am making it out to sound like we are a perfect couple, but we are not. I am getting there, I also have gotten frustrated at the games because they get in the way of some things. I really would like to have a talk with some of the producers (or whatever they're called) of games. Because in order to be accepting of hobbies, you have to understand them fully. Like, for example, you cannot just quit when you want to with some games... but what if you have to be somewhere else right then? Well, you lose points. Silly! They should have a button called, "my wife is getting mad because we need to be somewhere else." 

So, how do I work around this? I am not going to make him stop, because that will not help matters. But, I will tell him about important times we need to be somewhere and we need to be on time. We also have a media curfew, 11pm everything goes off. Sometimes earlier, but thats the final cut off of the night. 

I know that in the future when we have kids this will change in some way especially the having a lot of free time, but I still think we should have some type of free time every week even if its 30 mins to an hr because its just needed, it helps you unwind from stress. 


confessions of a gamer's wife

Story of us..

Chad and I met in 2009 technically, but I would like to say I met him before that, or noticed him to say the least! My friend worked with him and when he started working there she texted me and told me to come by and see the new guy, he was totally cute! I made it my job from then on out every now and then to come by and see him. I sometimes would even run by him and say "HEY CHAD!" and run off. I was gutsy to say the least. 

Fast forward to 2009. My friend was moving to another college so I knew I would have no reason to go to the store again or to not be as obvious so I asked her for his number. She gave it to me and I started texting him. We texted on and off for about a week then we decided to go see a movie together. 

We did not do a single thing towards each other that night, not even a hug goodbye. But, I knew he was different because when I got ready to leave he said so when will I talk to you again? I said, that's up to you. He said, okay, I'll text you when I get to my car. And he did. It was sweet!

After that we went out a few more times, and every time he would turn his phone off when we were together, another sweet thing about him that made him seem so different.I knew I wanted to be his girlfriend.

Eventually, I told him how I felt and we began going out as boyfriend and girlfriend in October 2009. He proposed a few months later (next July) at my house as he was getting ready to leave. I said yes. 

We kept this a secret from Chad's parents until we got to college that August. 

After that we stayed engaged during my first year at college at the University and his third year of college and first year at the big University as well. It was hard with school to plan a wedding for me, but it was doable. And dates changed from time to time on what day to plan the next year. The plan was to marry in October at first, but we wanted married housing and we thought it would be easier to get it this housing on campus in summer. So we moved it to June. 

When we finally told Chad's parents, they wanted us to wait till after college. Which now looking back I am so glad we didn't yes I want to respect them, but I know if we had done that we would be only making them happy, not us. We wanted to get married then because we knew we not only wanted to but would also being saving a ton of money in the future after college if we were able to be married and live together. Most marriages end in divorce because of financial problems. I did not want to be in that statistic. I knew if we did this we would be not only happy we would be saving money. 

My mom, was not as upset and found out sooner. She just wanted me to be happy and wanted me to know my responsibility if I did so.

The wedding was in June 2011, and I penny pinched every option as much as I could. I bought my dress for $100, made my invitations, made my bridesmaids wear black dresses they already had, etc. We did not even get a nice honeymoon getaway, we went to the Zoo that weekend. (we had summer classes) And I don't regret that still today. Yes, it was more stressful because I had to research more but in the end I am glad I did and still loved every moment of my wedding. Except, the time... 3pm 90 degree weather! Yeah bad idea!

And we have and we still love each other. We talk about the future and plan for it often because even though money is tight because we are still only 21 and 22 yr old college students we know that right now we are still happy and we will be happy in the future as well because we planned ahead. 

I believe if we can make it through college together with as little money as we have now, we can make it through anything. No, our marriage is not perfect and it does take a lot of work, but I love being with Chad and know we are meant to be!


Our Happily Every After

Beyond my years...

I believe that because I am married at a young age I have experienced different things than 21 year olds at my age. Not only do I not go out and party, I do not mind to just sit at home and watch TV, and I have a lot of older friends that I connect to and relate to better. It even happens when I am blog hopping, I connect to older women because other than the kids part we usually have a lot more in common. 

I also actually like school for the most part, I like learning. I could live without the homework part though, but I do know its purpose and understand that its just part of it. I understand there is value in truly learning and that we are not here to gain friends. 

I also believe that my major has made me grow more than others at times. Social Work is not only a hard major, (we all believe that we write so much that we should receive a technical writing minor automatically) but it also is a different mindset than other majors have. We want to help people, and not just any people, we want to help the people that sometimes no one else wants to help. 

Lastly, I think about the future a ton. I know some college students do this in some way, but I go to the extremes so I know how important it is to save money for the later in life. I have never lived in a house throughout my whole life so planning for a big purchase like that is a must for me. Chad and I have drawn up designs on the computer, some what of a blue print type design for our dream house. Since my scholarship offers me a job after school I know the whereabouts of where we might live as well. 

I know all these things are not bad, but because I do things like this and more it is hard to connect at times with people my own age because we are into different things. But I am learning to accept that and be thankful for the friends I have, including bloggers. I also think this is an advantage because I am more mature and ready to network for work.

Why I don't wear makeup

I have always dealt with this constant struggle with my whole image, not just my face from time to time but also my body overall. But, it is no wonder because of the constant messages I see saying that thin is in and makeup is the thing. Don't get me wrong I love makeup and I am not saying it is bad to put on, but what if I do not want to put it on just because? should I be judged differently? should I be judged differently if I decide to put it on another day? the answer should be no to both.

In high school, I always wore a little bit of makeup, mainly eyeliner and powder just something to highlight my eyes and that was it. But after high school, school got really hard and I no longer had the time or the urge to use it. So I didn't. Every now and then I do, but when I  do it itches terribly or bothers my contacts to the point of me rubbing it all off. There is just no point in me using it if it makes me uncomfortable is my thoughts.

But I have been criticized because I do not wear it from time to time. Saying if I would put it on, I would look prettier. And that is the problem I have with makeup.

I wanna wear it just because I wanna wear it and make me feel like I took the extra effort because I don't know just because, not because I have to either. I have tried to stress this to others that makeup is just not my thing, but some do not get it.
