JJ's Back!

JJ is back! Yay!

I had a pretty good weekend overall. I rented three movies that were pretty much centered around weddings. I figure I will only be engaged one time in my life so I am living and breathing wedding stuff right now. I rented It Had to Be You (the remake, Hollywood Video didn't have the original. It was pretty good), Muriel's Wedding (different but very good) and Bride Wars (it was pretty cute). I also watched a bunch of Bridezillas. That show cracks me up. I know a lot of those women are acting for the show but I'm sure some of them are really that horrible. I am so glad I am not like that.

I cleaned the entire house so that it would be nice for JJ when he got back and he thanked me a bunch of times. It was fun having some time alone but at night I would get so scared. I was fine during the day but when it was time to go to bed, I HATED sleeping alone. The first night Little P woke me up because she was howling. She hardly ever barks and has never howled. It scared me to death. Then when I tried to go back to sleep, I had like 4 nightmares in a row. I am so glad I have a big, strong man by my side tonight!

Chick Flicks and No JJ

JJ is going out of town today. He will be coming back on Monday. I will be driving home around lunch time to take him to the airport before I come back to work. I will definitely miss him, especially tonight and tomorrow. I really hate sleeping alone!

I'm actually excited about having the weekend to myself though. I am planning on renting lots of chick flicks and stopping by Barnes and Noble to buy a giant, girlie book. JJ is horrible at making little comments anytime I am watching something resembling a chick flick. He says they are very predictable. He will be like, "Oh! Let me guess! They are going to fall in love at the end of the movie!" And of course he is always right and it makes me want to throw something at him. So now that he won't be there to treat me with his witty comments, I want to spend the weekend on the couch watching movies, reading and eating all the stuff that we normally don't eat.

Don't get me wrong. I love our lifestyle and diet. We eat very healthy and workout together. Dinners are usually something like grilled Tilapia and fresh veggies. I love being with someone that shares my goals of being healthy. However, sometimes I want to splurge on pizza and Chick-fil-a. And that's what I am going to do! Whoo hoo!

Rainy Day and Updates

Today is going to be another rainy, yucky day! Every time I wake up on a weekday and it's raining I have to seriously fight the urge to call in sick and stay in bed. Today, JJ did just that. I was up a lot last night because we were having some really loud storms. Little P gets so scared and I feel so horrible for her. She pants and shakes and looks so sad. It totally breaks my heart. This morning JJ got in the shower and about halfway through declared that he was going to stay home today. He has been totally swamped at work lately and he really needs a mental health day. I just wish I was able to stay home with him!

Just to get you guys caught up on stuff that has been going on lately, two of my four bridesmaids are now pregnant. They are 4 weeks apart which means one will be 8 months pregnant on my wedding day and the other will be 7 months. The one that is a little further along decided to not be in the wedding anymore and I totally understand. My other bridesmaid said she still wanted to be in it. That surprised me so much! I wonder if she will change her mind once she starts showing and having morning sickness! I am so happy for both of them but it is a little weird for me. They are my two closest friends and I feel like the odd one out. They are always talking about babies and pregnancy and I don't have anything to say! They are getting so much closer and I feel like I am losing them a little. I'm not really sure what to do.

JJ and I went to a pre-marital seminar at a Catholic church near us this past Saturday. It was a long day (8-5) but we both got a lot out of it! We learned so much and all the topics related to our relationship. We listened to some lectures and then we filled out some worksheets and talked about them together. At the end we wrote each other a love letter and I take JJ's letter with me everywhere I go. It is so incredibly sweet! Anytime I need a little cheering up I pull out that letter and read it.

I have also started my photography class and I LOVE it. It is really challenging but I am learning so much. As soon as I take some pictures that I am happy with I will share them. Right now though, it is blatantly obvious that I am a beginner!
