I've been much busier than expected, which is why I haven't posted yet. Anyhow, last post I talked about how I'm pretty much on Cloud 9 and loving life. Here's why:
On Sunday, Ben and I went to our first bridal show together. No, he hasn't proposed yet, but I figured it couldn't hurt to get our feet wet with the planning process. While we were there, I tried on a wedding dress for the first time. It was beautiful and I loved it. Almost bought it, actually. As I was being helped into it, the girl who was helping me said, that it's a size twenty four and I'm absolutely swimming in it so we'll have to clamp it in the back. CLAMPS ON THE DRESS!!! EEK!!! It was so exciting! See, the dress was discontinued and that was the only size they had. It was so fantastic to be told that it was huge on me. I loved it. So, anyway, we got some great ideas for what we want our wedding to be like and we've been kind of planning every day since Sunday. It's been great. I love it. I know the proposal is coming soon. He's supported me financially while I was in school and now that I'm out, I'm finally able to start helping with bills again because I started working as a substitute teacher! That's the second reason for my "flying high" feeling. It's so great to be able to go back to the school where I student taught and see my kids and actually get paid for it, too. I'm loving life right now. And, to top it all off, I took a sneak peek at the scale this morning and I've lost some more weight. I don't think I could be any happier at the moment. Everything seems to be going my way. In addition to subbing at this school, the principal from another local school emailed me and asked me if I'd please come sub for them because she needs someone who is certified to teach secondary English, which I am. She said she got my information off of one of my professors, so it's awesome to know that someone thinks highly enough of me to recommend me to them. So, things are really starting to shape up for us. Super excited about what this year will bring!
