tid bits

Happy Friday!

I'm linking up with Alycia over at Crowley Party for Tid Bits!

So many wonderful things are happening. First off, Jim's birthday was on Wednesday, and instead of baking him a cake, I figured, why not make some delicious noms featuring the best ingredient ever, bacon?! Of course I have no pictures. I've been slacking picture wise lately, but I made him deviled eggs with bacon, bacon and cheese potato bites, and bacon and chicken pasta with a parmesan cheese sauce. Oh man. So much bacon. Needless to say I had to exercise the following morning.

Jim and I have discussed and discussed, and we've decided to have a civil wedding ceremony. My parents are flying out, along with his foster parents, and with the four of them as witnesses, we will be married on June 1st! I cannot wait. We will be having a mock ceremony/reception next year, probably on June 1st or sometime around then. So I've got a whole year to plan, but I'm super excited to marry my best friend.

That being said, today we have an appointment at 4PM to go get our marriage license. I don't know how many people get really excited about going to get it, but I am. Maybe because its all starting to fall into place and everything is becoming real and not just an idea in my head.

SO, since we are having a civil ceremony, I picked out the most wonderful shoes. I immediately fell in love with them when I saw them, and purchased them right away. I will most likely wear a simple dress to the ceremony, and I will purchase a real wedding dress for next year. But here are the shoes!

They are not traditional wedding, and I don't care. Because, as I've said before, I'm not the traditional gal. I love them.

On another note, I haven't painted my nails in eons, and my nails aren't in the greatest shape right now, but since I've been feeling so happy, and today is Friday, I decided to paint them.

Later tonight, we are going to a place called Smashburger. Jim has been wanting to go there so we'll be checking it out. And hopefully *fingers crossed* we will be taking a little trip up to Laguna Beach tomorrow. I'll definitely stop slacking and take some pictures if we do. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

xx Jessica

OMG Jessica! First of all congratulations on your recent engagement! How did I miss that post! The ring is beautiful and it's ok if it wasn't a 'total' surprise as long as you are happy that is what matters the most. Your ceremony sounds like a great idea! I see so many friends get stressed out over wedding planning that I think I'll do the same as you one day.

Akiko said...

Shamia said...

YES. YES. YES. Thank YOU! I mean, not for anything specific... but thank you for being different and getting a civil service marriage - and then having a big thing later. Because what's most important, being together forever. OHHHH. I'm SO happyyyyyy for you and Jim!

And I have to turn in my marriage license tomorrow myself. LOL.
