wii. Sometime in January, z104 (local radio station) busted in my office at work and delivered my WII! I won a contest! WOOO! I was nervous as heck! HAHA! It didn't help that I had to hold the mic and say "Hi, I'm Jen and thanks to z104, I just won a WIII!!" LOL! I totally geeked out.
rekindled. As you get older, you realize that the petty drama you had years ago wasn't worth losing a friendship. Luckily, I rekindled the friendship with my high school friend and we smashed the drama. This is when you start to realize that you're not getting any younger and there are far more things to worry about than petty drama.
snowboarding. As winter season ends, it's time to hit the slopes just one more time! I took this shot of the husby!! WOOO! Look at him gooo, sooo hott! LOL!
engagement party and bridal gown shopping. My parents threw an engagement party for me and Patrick while his parents were in town from California. It was lovely! Oh and bridal gown shopping felt super fun! Haha, I won't forget the time I was shopping with my girls in NOVA and I tried this beautiful gown on. Then, I asked how much, she said "It's only $3,900.. GAH! Okay, let's take this off now! But alas, I found the dress of my dreams! Come to find out later, it was on the cover of BRIDE this year.
80s. HAHA! This pic is one of my favs! This is all of us getting ready to head out to the LegWarmers concert in NoVA! It's a strictly 80s concert and you have to dress the part. It was tons of fun! It took forever for me to crimp my hair but I done did it! My hair was straight up flammable! I was scared whenever someone lit a lighter during a song! OH GAH! That would have been bad!
miami. Oh GOODNESS! What can I say that won't get me in trouble? Hahaha, KIDDING! The husby had his bachelor party in Vegas and me and my girls headed to Miami for 4th of July weekend! Our hotel was loveeellyy! Free Happy Hour drinks! OH MAN! Our flight back home was at 6am, umm yeah not a pretty site. I was still drunk when I checked in with the flight attendant. LOL! My cousin was hungover... PUAHAH!
bridal shower. This is when wedding plans were coming down to the wire. But my mother and my good friend, Mar are sooo good to me, they threw a beautiful bridal shower for me.
wedding. I was absorbed in wedding plans for 2008! People say it takes a year to plan a wedding, well I did it in 7 months! It's possible, you'll just be stressed to your jugular! But in the end, it's all worth it. The wedding was gorgeous and my husby is soooo handsome. We exchanged vows while I cryed my eyes out AGAIN! Most of his family flew from California and my maid of honor, Morrissa flew from Florida. Everything was perfect on that day!
honeymoon. After all the stress, it was nice for me and husby to get away. While we had cruise plans to go to Cozumel, Mexico, hurricane plans changed the route. We ended up in the Bahamas. But it was still a beautiful site!
pounds. because this was the "wedding" year, I've lost 8-9 lbs!! So far, I've only gained a pound or two extra... But I'm hoping to maintain it! EEKS! My aunties have no shame when it comes to talking about weight. They have no shame to tell me "you've gained weight, eh?" OR! "look you're soo skinny now, you used to be chubby!" OH GAH!
townhome. Me and husby picked out a townhome for us to live in. It's beautiful! I had sooo much fun decorating. I looovvee interior design. So I had fun picking out furniture, window curtains, kitchen table, etc.
