a disney wedding???

I love disney. That is a fact. When I heard disney had performed weddings, I knew they were outrageously priced, until I read about their Escape Weddings.

18 guests only for a low price of $4500... Hrm.. I got thinking about it and are still thinking about it.. Drew and I already have a vacation booked for disney.. We would only have to invite our immediate family (the storms and smith parents) and I wouldnt have the stress of planning a wedding..... and we could still invite another 8 more people....

Just a thought.. Don't know if we will do it, but the idea of a stress free wedding sounds wonderful at the moment...

biopsy results, electrical fires and wedding details

The biopsy results came back from my thyroid as non-cancerous, which is wonderful... Basically, I have a lympth node that is huge and will be there, unless I want removed. The surgeon wasn't concerned about it and said I should not be either.. So, that is that..


My Volkswagen Beetle had an electrical fire.. Nice.. On Thursday, I noticed my air conditioning was out and so were my lights.. I was like "what the heck"? I took my car into the dealership last Friday and found "Gus" had an electrical fire.. How awesome!! The service manager at the dealer ship said I was lucky to be alive and was surprised that the entire car did not set on fire. In addition, he was surprised that the fire stopped, but short circuited all of the fuses in my car, which is why I lost air and lights..
I called my insurance company and they are going to pick up the tab! Praise Jesus!!

Wedding Details:

The date is set! Mark your calendar for July 10, 2010.. Our Hopes are to spend our honeymoon in Maui and Kauai Hawaii! Now we must start saving for it!!

re-schedule the biopsy

My biopsy is being rescheduled! SO frustrating!

My diamond ring already chipped. I have had it less then a week! Now, it goes back into the shop.. Super disappointed..

Wedding plans have become stressful as everyone has their own expectations for the day.. Prayers to stay calm are appreciated...

This is all for now!

A biopsy?

Well, it was that time again; for a yearly physical(the one women hate). My doctor was checking my neck/ thyroid area when she felt a lump, so she scheduled a ultrasound. The ultrasound came back, showing I need to have a biopsy done to see if a lympth node is infected, cancerous or if my thryoid needs to be taken out ..

It all seems very strange to me, but hopefully, the biopsy will give us some answers...

It is so weird..

What was a routine physical, turned into a nightmare...

Sighs... Well, I am not worried, but more irriated because I do not want to make the time to deal with it.
Prayers are needed, so I may have a positive attitude.. That's all!

A proposal? Not Yet!

Wednesday, Drew surprised me and said we were going to Great Wolf Lodge for the weekend. For sure, I thought, he is going to propose.. We were going up to Sleeping Bear Dunes too.. I have wanted to go to Sleeping Bear Dunes for a while and I was for sure, he was going to propose. I had it set in my head that he talked to my dad, bought the ring and that is where it was going to happen..


Well, I must say, I was WRONG! I am not disappointed, but more mad at myself because the entire time I was on edge wondering if it was going to happen.. I am totally patient about this and am no way trying to add pressure to Drew, but I had it stuck in my head, he was going to propose.



Poor Drew, I was bugging him all weekend about it!

Even though he did not propose, it was a wonderful weekend of relaxation, fellowship and fun. I really enjoyed the time with him and it was nice to be away from Grand Rapids.. I needed to relax and it was an enjoyable time.

I will keep you posted on the proposal..
