I’ve been a bad bad blogger…

So, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything personal. I’ve been working so hard on organization (and actually working) that I’ve neglected you all. I’m very sorry… I can’t say that it will never happen again, because we know that eventually, it will. I am going to attempt to get better at actually getting on here and talking to you all though.

Where to start… Personal, right? Well……… I got married! That’s right folks, me and the Manchild finally tied the knot. {Insert kissy face photo here}

alicia and stevenYes, we got married by a judge at the court house… It’s what was right for us. I did at least coordinate mine, the Manchild’s, and both of the boys’ clothes to match that day though, and there are a few photos to prove it. And for everyone who thinks that getting married at the courthouse is not romantic and just oh-so-horrible, let me tell you, we still prayed, we still had our kiss (as evidenced in photo to the right) and we still had all the family there that we wanted/needed. And we still had a celebration later, with cake… No expensive 3-tier cake, but we had cake. 🙂 And I finally (FINALLY!!!!) married the man of my dreams. That’s all the romance that this girl needs. 🙂

Ummm… I’ve gone back to work. About 3 months ago, I had a job offer come out of nowhere, and after some consideration (and a lot of haggling) I accepted it. It’s been fantastic. I still feel like I work for myself, but I have a paycheck that I can count on, and I love the few people that I work with (and the fact that I get to go home at the end of the day).

I’m not reading as much anymore… I have to get back on top of that. If anyone has any good books to recommend, I would love to hear them! I wish that Nicholas Sparks would crank another one out sometime soon… I’m dying to read anything that he may have next (especially considering that his own personal life took a twist, I wonder if that may effect his writing?).

Oh, on another note with the whole getting married thing… Apparently, it’s not a good idea to tell your husband that you’re still using your maiden name on stuff because his name sounds funny with yours. Sorry Manchild, I’ve had 28 years with one name, and it’s a little hard to give it up. I did legally change my name, I just keep forgetting to tell people what my new last name is… Even though I do happen to love it. 🙂 Just taking some getting used to.

Another thing about getting married is the idea of putting down roots somewhere… We already have some well established roots in the area, and I love my little house, but the thought has started crossing my mind that it may be time to look for a new, larger house… And no, not because we are expecting (we already have a puppy, that’s enough baby for us) but because the boys are getting older and I want them to have their own space. We haven’t found anything that comes close to meeting our criteria yet (except the house next door) but I’m still excited to think of the possibility of having a place to truly call our own, and somewhere that I can decorate as I choose to.

Lastly, for the first time in my adult life, I will be taking a vacation this summer! I have been planning and looking for the perfect place. It probably won’t be anything fancy, and we may actually have a blog post about a vacation on a budget. 🙂

Well, that’s all for today folks… I’ll talk to you all soon! 🙂
