Little House of Treasures

So I am super excited this week! Would you like to know why? Of course you would! That's why you're reading this, isn't it?! Okay I'll tell you.... WE HAVE A HOUSE! It's sooo precious! or at least we think so anyway. But if you'd seen the crappers we've looked at, you'd think of it as the Taj Mahal too! Seriously it's exactly what we've been searching for. It's tiny but not rediculously so. It has a big bedroom for  it's size (which will be important in 222 days if you catch my drift), an itsy bitsy fireplace, and a medicine cabinet! Personally, the medicine cabinet is my favorite feature because I've wanted one since I was a little girl so that I could keep my lipstick in it.
For those of you who have been on my facebook recently, this is old news since the lease was signed Monday. Truth be told I just haven't had time to blog about it and when I did I was without internet signal. But if you're feeling a little let down by the lack new information, I have a surprise for yooouuu...we now have stuff to go in it! We haaaaavvvvee livingroom furniture, new washer and dryer set, tv, entertainment center, freezer, and a grill for those All-American cook outs!

this is it! better pictures coming soon! i hope.
I am so incredibly excited and humbled by all that's been done for us and how God has blessed us. It has been really, really amazing. This year has had more extreame ups and downs than anything my mind could have cooked up but if we can make it through this one, we can make it through all of them.

Have a lovely today and an even better tomorrow! 

Ps. I'm in need of a cute music player. Help? Song for this post is Mushaboom by Fiest.

The Story

Hello All!

Welcome to Bride to Bee! This is my first ever blog post and I am so stoked!..even though I'm sure my mother will be the only one to read it. I suppose I'll devote this post to story-telling, which you should know is one of my very favorite things to do. Hmmm..where to start? The beginning would probably be best.

Super-Quick Recap of the Beginning
I met my fiance, Tommy, June 2007 right before my freshman year. We were introduced by a mutual friend on, and I'm wincing as I type this, AIM. Yes, it's lame but, hey, we were 14 and that's the way it went. Over the years we've had our ups and downs but it's always been me and him, ever since day one. He has become my very best friend and I can't imagine my life without him.

Baby Tommy  :)

Side note to youngsters: Results are not typical. There are creepers online and you should not for any reason talk to strangers on the computer.

The Proposal
October 1, 2010- Homecoming
Tommy and I have talked about getting married for quite a while by now. He says he's always known I was the one for him. Personally, I think he got the short end of the stick because that boy is waaaayyyy too good for me! But I'm not complaining! Anyway, I've always told him that if he were going to propose I wanted it to be public. I wanted everyone I cared about to be there plus some spectators. And that's exactly what he did.
It was the Homecoming alumni program, in which SGA and the Drama Club (I'm a member of both) pick a theme such as music, movies, tv shows, or dances and act out fads through the decades. This year we decided to do Dances Through the Decades. It started with the swinging twenties and only got better when our biggest football players reinacted a scene from Glee and danced to Single Ladies. My skit was at the very end; a human video to Just the Way You Are by Bruno Mars for 2010. I was feeling pretty down about it because Ben and I hadn't practiced very much and Tommy had told me he wouldn't be there to watch because he had an interview for a new position at work. But then...well why don't I let you see for yourself.

Now Here We Are
I'm counting down the days until my December graduation (31 to be exact) and he's dying to be done with his first semester of college. Checking Facebook Marketplace every day for cheap things to furnish our rented house with and learning to save our tiny paychecks. Planningplanningplanning. Places, guest lists, music, cakes, dress, photographer, invitiations, yada, yada, yada... There's is more to do than we imagined! But with God's help we'll get it all done before July 7th, or that's the plan anyway! And if doesn't quite turn out exactly as we thought, well that'll be just fine :)
