So delicate looking. Love. I wish I could see the back and the rest of his collection. Found on Wedding Style.

Mark and I are almost too similar to Ally and Noah. It's kinda creepy.
We are both so ourselves and each other at the same time. Sometimes we got so pissed at each other, and then have these beautiful moments afterwards that just amaze me everytime. I don't get how he loves me after those times...I really don't. We are just so intense in loving and fighting.
Mark's mom made a comment last week that she didn't think we would be good together on the Amazing Race (not completely random givin the context at the time). That made me sad. I trust Mark's decisions completely and I (think) he trusts mine; when I make sure to show him that I believe it myself (I do sometimes say things before I really believe them). He is better at thinking with his head and being sensible. I'm more adventurous, go outside of my limits, and definitely live 95% of my life with my heart. But, what is so great is that we work together in those situations so neither one of us goes too far to one extreme. He would be able to handle all the people drama, and I would be able to push us and keep us moving. So boo. Holla. Take that. Million dollars here we come.
So basically what I am trying to say is,
I like us together. I like the way we work together. Even if it isn't a traditional relationship between man and woman, it works for us (although sometimes I think I'm getting the better end of the deal). Which is all that it should be.

Not good! I just bought two more items off etsy. Definitely cheaper than if I bought them in a store, but still, its not a good habit to continue.
On the bright side I got my blue vintage blouse and love it. This is the outfit I think I'm going to wear to a wedding I have this weekend.
Kitty will not be joining me.

How adorible is this dress? Perfect color. Perfectly flattering (for everyone?). Perfectly adorible. But is it TOO adorible? Esp. when compared with my more sexy/glamourous/romantic taste in my own dress for the day. If I didn't have them wear the under thing that makes the dress poofy (petticoat slip) will it still look too adorible? Will it look weird? I don't think so...do you? For $88 it doesn't get much better, right? Right.

I'm honestly contemplating this expense pretty hard. Any ideas/opinons?

This is what my heart tells me that I cannot always easily fabricate into words:
Because to the depths of me, I long to love one person,
With all my heart, my soul, my mind, my body...
Because I need a forever friend to trust with the intimacies of me,
Who won't hold them against me,
Who loves me when I'm unlikable,
Who sees the small child in me, and
Who looks for the divine potential of me...
Because I need to cuddle in the warmth of the night
With someone who thanks God for me,
With someone I feel blessed to hold...
Because marriage means opportunity
To grow in love in friendship...
Because marriage is a discipline
To be added to a list of achievements...
Because marriages do not fail, people fail
When they enter into marriage
Expecting another to make them whole...
Because, knowing this,
I promise myself to take full responsibility
For my spiritual, mental and physical wholeness
I create me,
I take half of the responsibility for my marriage
Together we create our marriage...
Because with this understanding
The possibilities are limitless.

In an effort to get people to look
into each other's eyes more,
and also to appease the mutes,
the government has decided
to allot each person exactly one hundred
and sixty-seven words, per day.
When the phone rings, I put it to my ear
without saying hello. In the restaurant
I point at chicken noodle soup.
I am adjusting well to the new way.
Late at night, I call my long distance lover,
proudly say I only used fifty-nine today.
I saved the rest for you.
When she doesn't respond,
I know she's used up all her words,
so I slowly whisper I love you
thirty-two and a third times.
After that, we just sit on the line
and listen to each other breathe.
“Never run after a bus or a man. There will always be another one.”-unknown
If only this was true. Alas, my man is one of a kind and I would never want to wait for another...
I think I'll take this quote to heart instead :)
“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.”-Epicurus
“We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.”-Frederick Keonig
