  • More then a month!

    It’s been almost 40 days since our wedding and how does it feel? About the same lol  I’m not really sure if I expected it to feel different? I really don’t know. Eddie and I talked about it some over the last few days and have come to the conclusion that that’s a very good thing

    If anything I love him more and more and more every day so I know it’s the right decision for us. We are settling down and enjoying the married life but honestly day to day life doesn’t feel so different and I love it. I know that if you don’t live together first it must really seem different but we already knew what we wanted and had already established a pattern before getting married.

    I love being at home with him during the day and I love still having the weekends together. I wish I liked to clean more and was a better housekeeper lol but I can learn. Cooking too. I really need to concentrate on cooking and nutrition and getting my diabetes more under control. I need to take some cooking classes or something.

  • Introducing Mr & Mrs C!

    Edward and I married last month on Saturday August 27th, 2016! The months up the to wedding were so hectic because we made everything ourselves including the Wedding dress, the Maid of Honors dress, the Bridesmaids dresses and the flower girl dresses, the bouquets, the table cloths, runners, all decorations and much more!

    Over all everything went perfect! We rushed the final Wedding dress a bit because the first one which was fully finished ended up being too big! I lost over 20 lbs in the months before the wedding As happy as I was about this it kind of put us in panic mode. But I am so happy! I am married to the man that I love more then life itself and that I want to grow old and grey with.

    My sister-in-law Ashley was our photographer and my other sister-in-law, Eddie’s sister Jen was one of my Bridesmaids. My best friend Erin was my Maid of Honor who was 3 weeks from delivering my God son made it through without giving birth  4 days ago she gave birth to a sweet baby boy. My friends Kristy and Jenn were both bridesmaids and my nieces were a junior brides maid and a flower girl. We had two flower girls and two ring bearers.

  • Leave of Absence

    After a lot of stressing, talking, more stressing and more talking; Eddie and I have come to the conclusion that I need to take a Leave of Absence from work for the summer.  Three and a half months to be exact. Returning September 1st, 2016. It was not an easy decision to make and stressful in itself because we just bought a new car and our payments are more, where was I going to get money since there is no paid leave here?

    But thanks to my mother and my sister-in-law it is going to be possible. My mom contacted her boss and asked if I could take in some typing (transcription work) to do at home and my sister-in-law has asked me to babysit her kids part-time. Between the two I should make just enough and can do it from home for the summer and still have enough to pay my part of the bills. In September I’ll re-asses. I got a doctors note and yesterday was my last day till September.

  • Our Trip To Maine

    Oops, almost a month since I last blogged. I said I wasn’t going to do that…

    Eddie and I took a side road trip on our own down the coast of Maine into Bar Harbor while we were in New Brunswick the weekend before last to go shopping for our wedding dress material in Bangor. I took some pictures with my camera. I haven’t even used it much since I got it. I apologize for the image heavy post.

    First we started off in New Brunswick as I wanted to take a picture of the mill and waterfall in St.George, New Brunswick.

    This is one of my favorite spots in New Brunswick, to get this picture you have to stand on an old wooden platform on an old bridge that in itself is a pretty picture. I didn’t get one of it though

    This little gem above was in Eastport, Maine. They had them all over. What a neat idea! I edited the image a little obviously and added some effects as the original was really washed out. This was possible an image taken the day before when my whole family met my cousin Robin and her husband Paul in Eastport but I thought I would include it anyways as it is so neat.

  • New car and wedding planning!

    So we bought a new car today! It’s not brand new but it is a 2015, a Nissan Alitma SV. It was a really good deal. It has 67,000 km on it but they extended the warranty free of charge so we had another 100,000 km which is what the original warranty for a new Nissan Altima would be.

    The pictures are not the greatest but they were just quick ones Eddie snapped with his phone. We will get some better ones this weekend hopefully. It’s a really nice car and so much bigger then the Fiesta!

    I can’t wait to take it to New Brunswick and maybe into the US with us next weekend. I hate putting that many miles on a car we just bought so fast but we are just going into Maine. It’ll all depend on if we can get the plates switched from the old car to the new one before next weekend.

  • Trying To Conceive
  • Testing

    We had a doctors appointment on Wednesday. Eddie doesn’t have a family doctor so I asked mine to take him on. Dr. H said yes. We discussed trying to conceive and he agreed that after 9 months we should be starting to do some testing on both Eddie and I to see if there is anything wrong, any reason we haven’t conceived yet since we are trying quite regularly, at least every second day.

    He is starting with Edward as he said it is much easier testing him then it is me. So we are officially starting testing as well which I am happy but scared about. I am terrified it is going to come back that one of us is not fertile. I am more concerned about myself them him as I am really sure he is not the issue. A feeling or intuition I’m not sure. I just think I am the cause of the trouble.
