08 Election

My voting experience was not as bad as I thought it was going to be. Although, I waited in line for and hour and half it went by quickly. I do not know if it was the iphone movie  (hard days night; Beatles) or the fact that the poll workers where pleasant and helpful. Water was given out constantly and workers were organized and efficient. Unlike last time where chaos and trouble shooting with the new system ran havoc. At least workers explained how to use the system and gave out sample
 ballots in order to speed along the process. I'm proud to say I've completed my civic duty and I hope all of you who can vote do so.

Wedding Planning 101

Its been about two weeks now since I got engaged, and boy has it been non stop. All of a sudden more work is piling up on top of trying to budget a wedding. Everyone has said its fun planning a wedding you will love it. Lies I tell you simply just lies. Since being engaged I've had to travel around Miami looking at churches, reception sites, and picking a date. Decisions, Decisions, Decisions is what I'm constantly dealing with. I keep on tell Rey that once we can decided on a church and reception site I will feel so much better. Hopefully by then end of this week it will all be done. I will keep you posted plus Rey has created us a lovely wedding website once its finished I will place the link up. Till then pray that all goes as planned and under budget.

Engaged & Loving It!

So I know many of you have heard the exciting news that Rey and I are ENGAGED!!!  Anne Marie and him already posted blogs of the moment, but now its my turn to give everyone inside prospective.

Wednesday afternoon I rush home to get things ready for church that evening expecting Anne to help me out. I get out of the shower and notice like 50 missed calls from Anne (ok 5). She informs me that she's down the block at my park with a flat. I quickly throw on some cloths, thankfully it wasn't my usual run out of the house attire (pj pants, and ratty t-shirt) While driving I'm recalling the lessons my father taught me on how
 to replace a flat tire. I jump out of the c
ar walk around the truck twice and nothing. (Thinking) Why would this woman waste my time didn't she know I had things to get done like speak to Rey on ichat in 10 minutes.

After questioning her several times she begins to cry and I'm like what now so I go over to comfort her. She all of a sudden stops crying...but did I pick up on that NOOOO because I was obviously out of it that day. Mind you I pride myself on being on the ball and no one pulling a fast one on me. I was like puddy in their hands. I continually refuse to do anything Anne asks me to do, so she basically says look who's that and points towards Rey. I question him being there and once I got the nod of approval from Anne I was off like a sprinter in the Olympics. While running I contemplated jumping on Rey and finall
y decided just to go for it. Thankfully there was a graceful catch like that in ending scenes of Dirty Dancing.

I kissed him about a thousand times not allowing him to get a word in while thinking to myself why was he so shaky, wasn't he glad to see me. Then o
f course he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Which in turn was action for the water works from my eyes. I was so amazed, shocked, and awed at the same time that all the wonderful things he said went through one ear and out the other. I'm sure I said yes just don'
t remember. Thankfully, Rey was kind enough to tell me later all that he said so that I could remember it for keep sake. 

I still can't believe after watching the video(commentary is quite funny) that I didn't see nor hear Brigitte and Merari in the background the whole time. Seriously I was completely gone...their plan worked and sad to say I was fooled. (of course in an awesome way) Thank you to everyone who helped make this day special. I know many of you knew what was going to happened and managed to keep it secret, so thank you. Rey, I 
excited to be married to you and I can't thank G
od enough for your presence in my life.
