Married..and home

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 28, 2014, 9:51 PM
Well..got married on Saturday and it was wonderful. I'm happy I did the wedding thing. At times I wanted to elope..saying over and over that I should've just eloped -- but after the first dance as husband and wife/ the dance w/ my father / spending all night in a wedding gown..it was great. It winded down faster than I thought it would..but then the we spent the last 2 hours w/ a small group just hanging and dancing to whatever song we wanted..literally. Including the flower girl's request of Frozen's "Let it Go!" It was silly, but so adorable for her and fun.

And I just got back from my honeymoon. I'm so tired -- and not because of what you might think. We invited family to join us in Orlando Florida at Universal Studios and Disney World. I have blisters on my feet, but plenty of good memories. It was a mini vacation and I loved it. Me and my guy did have moments alone but it wasn't as romantic as you would think, it was just..fun. :)

Anyway..just saying I'm back and now to catch up on...197 posts (art, messages, notices) that have piled up in my inbox.

What I'm about..right now

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 19, 2014, 7:50 AM
It's all I've been talking about for the last 2 months...weight loss and wedding. I'm not going to apologize for it either...it's just me, at this moment. When the moment is gone, I'll talk about something else.

So..

Final pound count..I've lost 20 lbs since starting "trying to lose weight" thing in the last week of June.
So that puts me at about..8.5 weeks I think.
I'm proud of my progress. My original goal was 15 lbs for my wedding on Saturday. Not only did I reach it, I've exceeded by 5 whole pounds.
Granted my ankles are really sore right now..I must have over did it at some point, I've decided to take it easy this week. I deserve it.
I babysit tomorrow so I'm sure I'll get exercise from that.

And wedding. la la la..
Finally did a post about it on facebook letting the many many relatives and friends know why they aren't gonna be there. Very small wedding.
I can still feel a chill up my spine about it..I knew some relatives knew and weren't happy about it. (not getting invited that is).
It's family politics really. Originally our list was even shorter, but since my folks are paying for the whole thing, my fiance suggested we let them invite up to 6 more guests of their choosing. So...needless to say they picked people THEY are close with and not so much me or my guy. But..that's the compromise. I hope everything will be well. Now that the day is almost here..I'm scared.
Excited is fading to just plain scared. And I'm not sure what I'm scared of.
hmm..

I think I need yoga or something.. :P

So..other than the political views I'm about..what's up w/ me?

Well, I'm getting married in 9 days. So, that's exciting and has me a bit frazzled. But at the same time I'm not terribly worried, the most important people will be there..we'll have music, food, cake, and reason to dance. Even if there is a hiccup or two...I'm not very worried. Well, not anymore. I had 1 cry so far, and  I think that's pretty good.
I wrote my vows and my sister (maid of honor) is looking them over. I'm sure it will be fine. We'll be married..and that's when challenges really begin anyway..

Other than that wonderful thing, we're also going back to Orlando for our honeymoon. Originally we were going to elope there, but people were too upset w/ us, so we compromised w/ this small wedding. But we kept our original travel/elope dates, so it's all working out.
I'm excited for the trip as well. I've always enjoyed going back to places I've been before, it feels less daunting. It'll be fun.

Whilst planning for this wedding I'm also in the middle of a short film documentary, post production. It's in editing stages right now -- 1st cut is completed and awaiting feedback from folks who control the money. It's how the film industry is.
And while THAT is happening I've also been writing like crazy. Not necessarily in script format, just writing. Getting it all out.
I've been wanting to draw..but writing seems to be the best channel for my creativity these days. I hope that's okay.
I always feel like I don't contribute to DA very much since I don't post much art.
But I enjoy this community very much and the art is very very inspiring.

Anyway..that's me and life right now.

Oh...and I lost 14lbs. Been exercising almost every day and watching what I eat since late June. My pants are all getting too loose to wear. I'm both happy and sad about that because some of my clothes are really nice...the downside of losing weight I suppose.

So..there you have it. That's life at this moment.
