Love and marriage and visa's and a few wedding pictures!!

Well hello everyone...or hello no one?? I'm not sure who's still around, if anyone but here I am anyhow!! It's been a while since i've blogged and so so much has happened. Life changing things like a full time job and a little thing called marriage. If you've been wondering where i've been for the past couple of months those two things sum it up best, full time job and marriage.

I'd like to also state that I'm very full from a giant pizza and the first Harry Potter film is on so if i start rambling or just fall asleep and accidentally hit publish then you'll know why. Just to be clear it's the pizza coma making me sleepy not Harry Potter.

Ok so let's start where we left off. I think I blogged about the fact that we got engaged and then I filled you all in on Tom's visa interview. Well spoiler alert...Tom made it to America which means he was in fact granted a visa! We also got married, yep we're officially hitched and have been for almost 4 months. 

It's kind of surreal typing that out on this blog. 4 years ago I was just introducing you all to this guy that i met online and now we're married, living in a little apartment in Dallas trying to survive on one income. One income that brought tears tonight which is why we got a pizza...because when there's tears about money you should go spend that money on a pizza...and chocolate...and Dr. Pepper. See I'm already bringing this post full circle.

Let's go back to the fact that we're married and to get married we had a little wedding.

I will come back around and blog the wedding in more detail but for now you should know that it was wonderful, surreal and just pretty perfect especially since we planned it all in about a month and a half.

Here's a few pictures from the big day.

Funny story, a few hours before the wedding Tom and I ran into a nearby Target looking for a shirt and tie for him to wear in the ceremony. Yep, we're chill, so chill that I'm pretty sure i stopped to look in the dollar bins hours before I walked down the aisle. 

My best friend Lauren came early to help me get ready and she commented on how calm and chill we were. When you are marrying the person you're meant for there's nothing in the world that could happen to make either of us stress or panic. We wanted to have a fun day celebrating our relationship and that's exactly what we did! 

Like I said i'll blog a bit more on the wedding soon.

For now here's a little visa update for everyone. 

We are in the middle of applying for Tom's green card. We sent everything out a few weeks ago. We've gone and gotten Tom's fingerprints taken and now we're gathering some additional proof to send off to the USCIS. We dropped the ball a bit and didn't send over everything we needed to so now we're scrambling a bit to get everything sent back over, correctly this time so that we won't have anything else slowing down the process.

Tom is antsy to start working and I'm antsy to have another income in the house. So please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we continue this long journey, hopefully we make headway soon!!

That's all for now! More to come, I promise!!
