Welcome! My name is Mrs.G and I started this blog so people could share in my mis-adventures in wedding planning. I married my southern gentleman on September 6th, 2009. Throughout our courtship I became enamored with everything southern and desperately want to become a steel magnolia.

I am better than yesterday. I think the combination of no sleep, an achy body and just being stressed out got the better of me. Sometimes you just have to get it out to really look at the issue and try to work it out.

In all honesty I know Mr. G is going to make this Christmas special for me and I know how much my new family is going to love having us both there to celebrate. I also threw myself in to holiday decorating, I figured If I wanted to catch the holiday fever I was going to have to expose myself to it. I will take pics of my newly decked halls this weekend when we are truly settled in to our new home.

It is really funny to say that still "our new home", it will hit you in waves because everything is a first and is so new.

Things I have learned in the short time I have lived in my house:

1. I suck at parking in a garage day one I almost took the back end of my car off because I was paranoid I was going to pull in to far and bust through the wall in the dinning room. Last night I did pull in to far and tapped or old microwave that is in the garage right now. Funny part is we even have one of those STOP signs hanging from the wall.
2. Communication has been impaired for hubs and I. We are yellers, and I don't mean in a "we fight all the time" way I mean in a you are in the other room and I don't want to get up and tell you what I have to tell you so I will yell it to you. At our old place you were only a stairwell away now he could be in the basement, the office, the garage. There are just so many more places to be, that I see under the same roof texting in my future.
3. it is hard to dress for a new house. At our old house I knew it was cold, the only room that wasn't freezing was the office. I knew that if I was cold and the heat kicked on I needed to sit on the chaise part of our sofa or on the far right had side, those got the best heat. I knew that when I went to bed, I had to dress for the Arctic circle, sweat pants, hoodie, tee shirt, socks, but now that is all out the window. I can't get comfortable! I haven't found the perfect comfy clothing combo to not be freezing or dying of heat stroke.
4. Hard wood floors are hell for my knees and ankles. I am forcing myself to be a slipper wearer because it gives me some form of support. When we decorated the tree, by the end of it I could barely walk, hence the sore body yesterday.

I am still not sleeping well, at 10 or so I will get this sudden burst of energy and can't come down from it until like 1 or so. I would love to take a tyneol PM but I haven't unpacked it yet, DRAT!!!


  1. Under the same roof texting has saved my marriage!

  2. you should do that whole hang a tennis ball from the ceiling so you stop when it's onyour windshield thing... I bet it'll save microwaves. and living rooms.

    i want to come and see your house. I'm sad I missed going to visit with crys. Lets plan sometime. Youneed to have a housewarming party.
