I've been slacking in the updating department...many apologies.
Things have just been insanely busy ever since Alex and I got engaged.
I'm working everyday and it seems that I have something to do everyday after work. Appointments to keep, errands to run, media rooms to clean up (that was the MOST time consuming)...
Last week I got to take a not so relaxing vacation. I went on the ZEAL summer retreat at Ft. Wilderness. I'm not the camping type...but this wasn't SO bad. We got to play games and have interesting conversations. It was nice to be out in the Disney wilderness with my fellow ZEALots. ;-) The best part was swimming in the shark tank at Typhoon Lagoon! The water was freezing! But it felt good in that heat (that's me up there with Kat and Shany at Typhoon Lagoon). I had fun on the camping trip...even with all the mosquito bites and rope burn (due to some rousing games of tug-o-war).
As for the wedding plans...they are progressing nicely! Alex and I have come up with some GREAT ideas for the ceremony to make it interesting and fun...and truly reflective of our personalities. I promise, it won't be your average boring wedding. I have an appointment with the pastor of the church I want the ceremony at on Monday...and I'm going dress shopping on Tuesday...and I'm still researching reception sites. We shall see. I'm starting to get really excited about this wedding business. And I'm training myself not to become a bridezilla. I remind myself that there's really nothing to worry about. God will work everything out the way He sees fit. It also helps that my sister is also engaged and going through all the wedding planning frenzy. The family doesn't need TWO crazy brides. I'll let her get all stressed out and I'll be the calm and relaxed one. :-)
