I'm Back!

Well, as back as one can be while planning a wedding, a trip to see the fiance next month, working two jobs (that's not saying much tho), and trying to figure out what happens after June 11th :) I just like to make myself sound busy, I was a busy busy busy college student and I sort of miss those 5:30am-9pm kind of days. Only sort of.

Having Eric home for the holidays was one of the best gifts I could have asked for. We enjoyed a wonderful 12 days of wedding planning, arguing about wedding planning, me telling him we need to do more wedding planning, wedding dress buying, tux rental picking out, registering, finding a ceremony site and officiant, arguing about wedding planning, and some more wedding planning. That was my Wedding Wednesdays all rolled into a short paragraph because I'm up to my eye balls in wedding and would rather not bore you all with the details :)

I can't believe Christmas happened. I was never in the holiday spirit, and I like to think Christmas is my favorite holiday, and then it was gone! I think a big reason for missing the whole thing was my excitement for Eric to get home and the...sorry I have to say it again....wedding. I'm so excited to have next year to spend with him, in our own place, with our own tree. And of course the sweet soldier-in-his-class-A's ornament I bought him. I also made him a huge Colt's tie blanket that is quite amazing and I'm sad to have it gone because yes, I slept with it before he came home haha.

New Year's Eve was...well, I was glad to have someone to kiss at midnight. I wish he had been a bit more sober but we'll just leave it at that. He did pay dearly for that the next day though haha. Love you babe.

After Eric got back down to Georgia a friend of his told him about an apartment he went and looked at and I googled it and found out the company owns about ten nice apartment communities in Columbus. To prevent any stalker-ish activities from happening in the future I won't mention the place we looked at but if you have ever lived near Fort Benning or in the Columbus, GA area I would love to talk to you. Eric and I are planning a trip for me to go down there at the end of February and because that might be the only time I'm there before I move down we want to get a good idea of what we will do for housing.

I did catch up on everyone's blogs that I missed while I was temporarily MIA and I was glad to hear mostly everyone had a good Christmas and New Years. Hopefully 2011 brings good luck and happiness, and to those without loved ones, a wonderful homecoming :)

Eric was assigned to a platoon when he got back down to Georgia and was given a tentative deployment date so that kind of made me a little sad. It's about two years away though and I know that date will change many times before it gets here. It's also kind of too far away to really think about but don't think I won't be enjoying every moment him and I will get together when we are no longer a long distance couple.

Alright this is getting very long and due to my tiredness and recently diagnosed bronchitis I was too lazy to upload any pictures. Don't worry though, pictures and something else very exciting are on their way!
