New piercing <3

Heart pierced my septum the other day, I've always thought that it would look very awkward on my face, but I decided to give it a shot, and with the right jewelry everything worked out :) I absolutely love it! The best part is that I get to wear it to work because I can hide it from my boss haha!

This picture was taken right after work, so I didn't have my other facial jewelries on.

Oct 5th, My <3's 24th birthday :)

It's 48 hours late. But I wanted to share a very important day, which is my fiance's birthday :)

My plan to get a ride from someone else to sneak a gift before he came to pick me up at work failed :\ so.... I just told him to stay in one section of the store while I look for the gift and stick it back in my purse. hehe. I wish I could have had time and space to make him something, but I know I can do that even if there is no grand occasion, because everyday/time/hour/second spent with him is a cause for a celebration.

We went to AppleBee's for dinner, ate some yummy steak, and just when he thought we were going to leave, AppleBee's employees sang for him, he had no clue!! hehe He had a red red face, and looked sooo adorable, more so than he always is, then I gave him his present, which he loved!!! [Lego Bionicle, something he's been wanting for a while, and a sweet birthday card :)] It was a really great night, I had fun, and I'm really very happy to spend such a great occasion with the love of my life :)

My Wedding Checklist

Ok, thanks to a good friend [Ria], I finally have a wedding checklist. Now, I know this list is loooooong and scary, [$$$ wise] but we have already started saving for the wedding AND we are going to DIY as much as we can, aside from that, we also have friends that will cover other fields of this list such as photography, hair stylist, makeup, music, clergy, cake and I will be making my own dress, along with the maid of honor/brides maids dresses. We will also make the invitation cards, decorations, party favors and what ever else we can handle ourselves. This is not only $$ saving but it will also be sooo much more memorable :) We don't want a giant wedding, important family and friends will be welcomed, more or less 100 people. Most importantly I just can't wait to be married to the love of my life :) Soo, if you're reading this please go over the list, if you/know someone that could help please let me know!!

YES! We got our car!

Finally :) She's a 94 Pontiac Firebird & was brought to us by a great online friend, who allowed us to make monthly payments. The next day after we got her, we washed & waxed the exterior, vacuumed & polished the interior and bought some floor mats and car freshener :) she looks so pretty, and feels really comfortable, I also love the way she sounds :) I'm so over joyed! her name is Helga [we like silly names for our cars] and we love her! She is our first official car together :)

No more car.. [for now]

So as of today, we are officially car-less. We have parted ways with our Bartholomew, an 86 Volvo, he was returned or demanded back I should say by his real parents. I liked having him around, he pulled through for us, even if there were so many things that was wrong with him, so many broken unfix-able parts. He did what he was meant to do, though. Which is take us from part A to part B. After the first "taking the car back" situation, i actually feel revealed not to "owe" those people anything anymore.

If everything goes smoothly as planned [I've learned not to get my hopes up anymore because anything can happen]we will get a new car, hopefully before I start my shift on Thursday. She will be a 94 Pontiac Firebird, which is in a good condition according to Kelley Blue Book. I'm very excited :) I hope to post pictures soon! [thinking of what name she would have]
