MARRIED

October 12th, 2011

Yeps, as the subject says, I’m married now! Our wedding was on Sunday (the 9th). It’s kind of surreal because it doesn’t feel like much happened, yet now I need to get used to saying “husband”. It’ll take several weeks before I get photos back from my photographer, so these photos were taken by friends and family.

Let there be cake.

Those are cascading origami cranes on our wedding cake :3 I folded all of them for my cake person to use. We also had a groom’s cake, which is kind of a southern tradition. This means we had 2 cakes, one of which is chosen by the groom. Ours was of the companion cube!

A lot of our relatives flew in for our wedding and most of our friends were able to attend too. It was great to see everyone together. The day went pretty smoothly, though not completely according to plan. We actually woke up that morning to a rain storm. The forecast also said it’d rain all day, so we switched to the rain plan. Then… it stopped raining the rest of the day! It was too late to change, so we just went with it. Instead of using the outdoor garden area, we used the upper veranda that faced the lake, so it was still nice.

It’s crazy how 10 months of planning goes into 1 day that flies by quickly. It made me think, what do I do now? Oh right, all the things I used to have time for.

My cosplay log┬áhasn’t been updated since October of last year, which was also the last time I sewn anything. I hope to pick that up again. I’ve also been behind on gaming, so now I have more time for that too, especially since some of my wedding gifts were video games. (By the way, I’ve been playing the Diablo 3 beta if anyone wants a sneak peak.)

But first things first, time to focus on our honeymoon :) The next time I blog, I hope to have tons of photos from Hawaii!

The weekend

June 6th, 2011

Thanks for the comments on the layout! Who knows if it’ll be up again for over a year XD;; I remember years ago, I’d change layouts every month on my sites. If one lasted 3+ months, I’d think, “omg this layout is sooooo old”. Now it’s stretched out to a year or more before I change anything. I think part of it is that I have more sites, and the other is that I don’t spend as much time doing webdesign anymore. (Or probably the real excuse: I’m lazy.)

Back in March, I mentioned that I picked out and ordered my wedding dress. I was told it’d take 5 months… but it only took three! It came in last week, and I picked it up on Saturday :3 I ordered it with a custom length, so the length is perfect. I fell between sizes though, so I have to get it altered to take in the waist and bust a little. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean I’m done with that part. Now I have to decide on shoes, hair, sash/accessory, and make up.

On Sunday, my friend suggested that we go to a local photographer meet up. We got to shoot at one of their photography studios with models. I was really shy and nervous at first. I don’t have much experience with studio lighting or working with models, so I pretty much felt like a total noob XD;;

I have a couple shots posted already, but I have more to go through and edit.

It was a good experience though! I’m hoping to do more of these :3 So, all in all, it was a pretty good weekend. Now to take on the work week!

Some changes

May 29th, 2011

Finally. A new layout. I think I’ve been using the previous layout since December 2009, so… this is long overdue! This one features Portal, which you can read about in the Site section. I also changed around the sections. Some have been rewritten/redone and some have been removed (though they might return later). I think I worked out all the kinks, but let me know if something doesn’t look right!

It’s Memorial Day weekend, and I’m so glad to have tomorrow off. We invited some friends over tomorrow for lunch. We’re going to be grilling burgers and bratwursts :) My fiance and I finally bought a grill (this one) a couple weeks ago. The sad thing is, when we moved into our new house last summer, I said, “the first thing we need to get is a grill”. Well, it took us a year to get around to it XD;; In addition to burgers and brats, we’ve also used it for steaks. We’d also like to try grilling vegetables and other meats like chicken, pork, and fish later on.

I’ve been keeping myself somewhat busy this weekend. Yesterday, I met with 2 more florists for our wedding. That’s still one of the major things I haven’t booked yet. Today, I helped my mom pick out a dress, also for our wedding. What’s annoying is that a lot of places with “mother of the bride” dresses… the styles look “too old” =/ She already looked at non-wedding dresses but didn’t really find one she liked. But! We picked one out today and ordered it, which is this one. I think it’s nice because it’s not “too young” and not “too old” either :3

And now, I need to go shopping for food for tomorrow XD I hope everyone is having a good weekend!
