So for the past few months I have been out of social media, and trying to soak every moment in. I had family visiting over that came to my wedding, and it was amazing spending time with them. Besides that, I have been moving so that pretty much is another huge reason as to why I haven’t blogged. 

I will be blogging starting today because I have finally settled into my new place. There are so many pictures that I want to share with you all, and give you an insight of how crazy my life was for the past few months. I also am going to update my youtube channel because I have a place where I can sit down and record my heart away. I was stressed out to the point that I got sick for about 3 weeks! 

After getting the proper care meaning, stayed in bed, stayed away from certain foods, and being far away as possible to the things that give me allergy I am finally 98% recovered. So the real question is, What updates do I have for all of you? Well…..

The planning wasn’t all fun and games lol! It was a little bit stressful because we had so much going on, and on top of that we were both working. Literally we would get out of work, and back into planning our wedding. We had a few months to get everything together that at the last minute so many things came into place. However, like always there has to be one thing that doesn’t go as planned, right? In my case it was my bouquet!!

So the one thing that I needed was the one thing I forgot to pick up at the store. My bouquet!!! I remembered this the day before my wedding, and when the store was already closed. It wasn’t my fault though because the manager in where I ordered it needed to call me, and this lady did not! Bad service!!! At the last minute my incredible mom, who by the way did my dress (YES SHE DID THAT!), she went to look for her own bouquet, and let me have it! Just look at it!!!!!

And can we all take a few seconds and soak in the dress with the veil that my mother made? ahhhh!

Everything was beyond perfect because I mean….my mom did that lol! I remembered this day as if it was yesterday because we were all running around trying to make the day as perfect as possible. I will never forget when I walked down the aisle and saw Carlos cry. All the memories that we had together when we were dating for the past 5 years came to my mind like a movie. From the moment that we met, when we started being the best of friends, from when he asked me to marry him, and till now. 

I never really thought that this day would come because it looked so far away, and it was never really in mind that this day would happen. That same week that we got married we started moving in our new place. On top of that, the day that we got married we had nothing in the fridge so we legit wasted about $110 on food we bought at Walgreens….at midnight. lol! No other store was opened so we had no other choice plus we were hungry!

I have a feeling you want to hear more of how we moved in, who helped us, see more pictures, and just about every single detail right? Well stay tuned cause I have so much to say! Plus I want to show you guys a small tour of our new place! I am so excited to start this journey, and even more hyped of getting back into this blogging world. I have been working on a song that I will post up, haven’t done it cause again I was super sick, but now I am feeling so much better it will be up in no time. 

I have a few topics that I will touch base on like married life, and how to cope with so many things at the same time. Organizing and winging a party on the last minute, and how to get your place glammed with less money. My apartment looks amazing and we didn’t even waste so much money on things that we have. I will share all of that in my upcoming blogs so stay tuned!!!! If you haven’t done so already make sure you follow me on instagram, and also the one I have with my husband. We will be posting about our place and how to get things done fast. Love ya’ll!

Living a day at a time

A lot of people in this world suffer from social anxiety, and at times I do too. There are times where I just want to be left alone, and I want to isolate from everyone. This happens because I am always surrounded with people mostly a big part of my day. At times I get frustrated because social media can also take a toll making me stop being on for a good amount of time. Being an influencer, worker, singer, songwriter, soon to be wife, sister, aunt, daughter, cousin, friend, and being part of a ministry is at times a bit overwhelming. Now imagine if I was a mom….Michele has left the chat!

I stick to myself, I go out alone, and I make sure I have time to just be….ALONE. Different people try to influence me one way or another, and others are very opinionated. I can literally sit for about a good amount of time, stare out of the window, and when I least expect it….its night time. I am not going to lie to you, but my favorite part of the day is going to bed. I disconnect from the world, and by that I mean I turn off all my electronic devices. The only thing I have is my watch that I use specifically only to see what time it is in case I wake up to get a drink of water. 

What is social anxiety to me? It is when people try to make me see the way they do, make me want to do things the way they want to, and trying to get a hold of me to make a point across. I am too much of a nice person at times, but there are days where I just want to smack everyone in the face. There are days when I wake up happy, but the minute I see my phone I get angry. I get upset at times that I can never please one person because another gets mad. I am still learning day by day to put myself first than everyone else. Being a perfectionist at heart, it gets difficult to have a smile on when inside I am in tears. 

Take my wedding planning as an example, social media portrays the most elegant and expensive wedding. My family and his family want different things cause our cultures are different. Friends expect another thing when it won’t happen the way that is in their minds. People that have only spoken to my fiancé and I (just once a year) expect to be invited (not gonna happen). Our parents friends expect an invite when they were hardly present in my life. Other people that “know me” whom either they unfriended me, but added me again ask for their invitation (not gonna happen). People in general asking about the wedding…anxiety.

When so many ask about my life…….like I really want them to leave me alone. Some that STALK ME, and don’t like me (that’s laughable) but is it really necessary? So many ignorant people from church, just because I say my opinion, they automatically portray me as the bad person. Despite of all of this, there is one secret that I have which maintains me with my head up high. It is something that I cannot contain, one word that is powerful, one word that changes my life with every second that passes by, and one that is beyond anything and everything in this world.

For me this is the following:

God > Depression/Anxiety 

I pray at night to be at ease.

I pray at night to be complete.

I pray at night to not feel weak.

I pray at night to make whatever I have go away.

I pray at night to have strength.

I pray at night so nothing can make me bend. 

I pray at night to trust in Jesus and myself more.

I pray at night so nothing can make me feel disturbed.

I pray at night to be okay.

I pray because at the end of the day only the Lord knows my way. 

 

Does that make sense? My definition of social anxiety can be extended into so much more, but I am only sharing this half with you in case anyone is able to relate to this. Trust me everything will be fine just find time to be alone. Now that I shared my story…I want to know what is yours? Please feel free to share your experience with me, send me a message, and let me know what part hit home for you the most. Love you all and I hope you are having an amazing day or night depending where you are at this moment. xoxo.

Engagement pictures!

Finally…….

The day we took our engagement pictures was truly magical because the setting was so perfect! It had just finished raining, the temperature was amazing, and everything was just right. The funny thing is that we would reschedule so much because we didn’t have the time to take them, but the timing of God is always perfect. Here are some of the pictures that we took with our amazing photographer/ youth pastor Enrique Mayen! (Please follow him on his instagram, and let him know I sent you: Emayen 23 and check out his website: www.photographybyenrique.com )

As you can see we were at the beach, and then headed out to the city it was awesome!!! I still have more pictures saved up that I will be posting later on. I cannot wait till my wedding because not only the setting will be amazing, but I have the most amazing photographer I could ever ask for. One thing that I learned is to let the photographer use his imagination! I was not picky at all because I know that whatever he had in mind was beyond beautiful.

If you are going to take any types of pictures, and you are looking for someone to capture your magical moment I recommend Mr. Mayen! He will not let you down and again go check out his site you will not regret it!!! For everyone that was waiting for this blog post…you’re welcome lol! See I told you that I was back, but you just didn’t know it lol! I hope you have an amazing day or night depending on where you are at.

Party? So who will you invite?

Let’s talk about invitations on who and to not invite to a party especially a wedding! I am going to be completely real with you all because I bet anyone who has gotten married, or is getting married went through this. I know tons of people that have or had this issue and they are so afraid on talking about it. So get a snack or two because this is gonna be (maybe) a long one.

Before I begin, to everyone that talked to me about this, and told me their situation this is what I would do! So let’s begin! 

Okay I get it! We all would like to invite possibly the whole world, and have the party of the year. What is the downside to this? pay attention. 

WARNING: If you feel offended by anything I will be talking about, and you are one of those people being invited to a party or want to be invited the only thing I can say is: If the shoe fits….wear it. 

FOR THE ONES THROWING A PARTY: TAKE NOTE! and I hope this helps!

Budget

If you are on a budget, there is a high chance your list might either increase or decrease. At the end of the day, everyone is going for the food, drinks, and entertainment. If you are lucky, they might just go for you instead of going to judge your party, gossip, and not understand why you do things the way you do. OUCH! that hurt didn’t it? However, that is the truth! So if you are throwing a party be true to yourself, and do not go overboard because at the end of the day its your choice in what you would like to have. 

Who to not invite 

As you go down the list you start with family, your friends, some friends of your parents, but then here come the unwanted people. Now who am I talking about? Let me break it down to you so read clearly. There are those type of people that automatically hit you up when they find out you are getting married, or having a birthday party. This also includes family members and old friends that might just unfriend you from social media, and then all of a sudden “friend” you again. There are those type of people where they literally invite themselves. People who never hung out with you, but love to gossip about you especially those that tell you that they expect an invitation. Even those types where you know they unfriended you, but in a text message they say; “So where is my invite?” lol! 

Here is another example, let’s say your family has friends where they think that just because they are friends with either your parents or uncles and etc….they think they are automatically invited. Do you see what I mean? Here is a big one, let’s say you are getting married but there are some that judged your relationship, never took the time to get to know your better half, and they still want to get invited. Also, those who just know you but your man/lady doesn’t even know them because those people never came around while you guys were dating. Hold on though I got more tea so keep reading!

Those type of people that are around every social media stalking your every move just to be either low key jealous, or just want to see how your party is so they can have something to talk about. I mean heck if that’s the case give them something to talk about!! Go big or go home! Wait there is more…what about shady family members? Now do not act so innocent because we all know dam well we have that type of person in our family. Those family members where they love… LOVE to talk trash about you, and want to get invited. COME ON NOW! Who cares if its an uncle, aunt, or even cousin…heck even grandparents cause if they are toxic those are the ones that should not be in the list. 

The less toxic and fake people that you have the better your day will be. Also, the less you will be spending for someone to come attend your important event. 

Who to invite

Even if you have a small list, or even a big one…make sure its all the people that have been there for you. People that you know will respect your party, the ones that will not leave your side when life gets complicated, and the ones that understand why you live the way you do. Especially respect whatever belief you might have because that also plays a big important role. Keep an eye out for those amazing people that you might take for granted, and instead of inviting them you invite the ones that are not meant to be at your party. 

Also, be sure that when you give the invitation to the person that deserves it make sure you let them know why you picked them to come to your event. Let them know how important they are to you, and especially how much they mean to you. Nothing else is better then letting him or her know how much you are blessed to them in your life. Everything is better when you have the ones that you love, the ones that are real, the ones that respect you for who you are, and the ones that never peer pressured you into anything be in your event. 

MANIPULATIVE

So let’s talk about the manipulative people out there that say, “If you don’t give me a plus 1 I will not go because I want to go with someone.” uhhhh honeyyyyy why are you going to invite them? Especially if they try to convince you that its just a close friend of theirs…like if you do not know them personally do not even think twice.

Finally

It is your party, your rules, and whatever you want to do will be perfect. If people pitch in for your event it is because they really want to so be sure they do not control you. At the end of the day, just try to have fun and make tons of memories of that day. There is no reason for you to stress on something when it should be the happiest moment of your life. If its a wedding, birthday party, bridal shower, baby shower, graduation, and etc don’t let no one try to ruin it for you because you deserve the best.

Okay now I’m done lol! If you have had or are having any of these situations I really hope you take in my advice. The less stress the better everything will turn out!!! Good luck!

If I can…So can you.

 

This is me….at 4 am…..ready to go to work at my dream hospital!!! Since I was a little girl I always wanted to work in one of the best hospitals where I am from, and Glory to God that my dream came true!!!! Quick story are you ready? I hope that whoever reads this gets inspired, and get their gears going at school. No one and nothing is an obstacle….the only obstacle is you. 

I always wanted to work in the medical field…ALWAYS. However, that dream started to fade little by little due to a few events that happened in my life, and also around a few people that are really close to me. However, I didn’t stop there and I didn’t let anyone tell me otherwise. I had people who doubted me that made me doubt on my own self. I had teachers that told me I would never pass, and then again I proved them wrong. I had “friends” that would say nice things to my face, and stab me in the back.

I had a few family members that tried to play me, and treated me as a joke. Despite of all of this, my faith in the Lord grew, my self-confidence started boosting up, and most important of all I started hearing the voice of God to take care more of myself. I worked at different places, and even a hospital where they literally TRIED to make me feel stupid just because I wasn’t in the same “level” as them. I had a job where old co-workers at an orthodontist made me pick up trash, and TRIED to put a bad recommendation about me. 

I had stalkers…STALKERS and so many haters that their jealousy would boost up in their veins, and you could see it pop in the middle of their forehead. What can I say though? They were my biggest fans because till this day some of them still try to “check up” on me, and they think I have no idea. With all of this, I started working extra hard, put in more hours, cried when no one was looking, and did my very best to get recognized in order to get my name out there. 

Guess what happened? The devil didn’t win, and God put me beyond every single person who ALWAYS wanted to see me down a dam drain. Also, age doesn’t mean you are “old” it means you have more wisdom, it means you get new people in your life that love you who are LOW MAINTENANCE which understand you have a life, it means that you do not let a day get to you, and it means you keep on trying because when you “fail” it just means it was practice. 

It is my 3rd day in which I remember a long time ago during this time I prayed for an environment where I can work in peace, and where people would get to see my true potential. I believe that prayer works, prayer makes it’s way, and God gives you what you need in the correct time. I can say that God has showed me his love, mercy, and his grace! Today I stand proud, with tears of gratitude, with my degree, with the news that I can continue my education at the same place I work at, and with a heart filled with love.

The whole point of being in the medical field, is having one foot in the door of an amazing organization in order to keep growing. Having one foot in the door for more opportunities, and always trusting in the Lord that he will make a way. Today I can say…I made it. I made it because despite of every situation God pulled me out of, and because when I really thought I was about to give up he said, “HOLD IT HONEY I AM NOT DONE WITH YOU!” 

Not only do I work in my dream job, but besides that I also work online as an influencer. I have an amazing team with the Tribe Girls and MHB in which I am an admin in, and we have big dreams for our team. I have my parents who are my rock, and my sister who is my hype girl. My fiance who literally believes in me, and motivates me like ya’ll have no idea. I have wonderful friends who will be my bridesmaids that pray for me everyday.

I have my brothers and my nephew that are the other pieces of my heart back in Guatemala, and my cousins in Colombia which we connect as time never passed by. What can I say? I AM BEYOND BLESSED! My dreams keep coming true little by little, and it is not because of some “destiny” this is because I WORK HARD! I love love love my life! I cannot wait to see what God has prepared for my future because another opportunity is coming up in which requires hard work, but I will do it because the Lord will give me the strength. 

Hello, my name is Michele Carvajal born in Chicago, IL, daughter of a father from Colombia & mother from Guatemala, and better known as Mishi. A girl who went to Mary Lyon Elementary School, went to Steinmetz High School, which then went to Northwestern College, to Triton College, to Depaul University, and ended it at Dominican University. Dominican has one graduation a year, I graduated last year, but I have to cross this May. Former employee at Edgebrook orthodontics, Triton College, Gottlieb Hospital, Dominican University, and Northwestern Hospital. Today I stand PROUD with my dream hospital….I am an employee in one of the best sections with people who are extremely wonderful. I am an employee at Loyola University Medical Center in which it is based on trinity, and we have other hospitals around which include: Gottlieb Hospital, Macneal Hospital, and sister to Mercy hospital. I am an influncer, gospel singer, song-writer, blogger, and trying to make my way in this world. I am a girl that will continue her education to get a higher degree, and promotion. One day, Lord willing, win the the Grammy for best Gospel album of the year…honey I declare that! Just watch, and hopefully build my own companies with my Husband to be. That is who I am and it is so nice to meet you.

If this has inspired you in any way I am glad it did! Remember this: You might cry now, people might doubt you, but do not let that get to you. YOU BETTER SHOW THEM! but please show it to yourself! If I can do it….so can you! If you want to send me a message and talk about something you are going through, and would like for me to pray for you go ahead and do it. I am also willing to give you advice so don’t wait…the change starts NOW! I hope you have an amazing day or night depending on where you are in the world.

Love ya’ll. God bless. Peace.

Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday means taking it back to the good old days when songs actually had a meaning. I present ya’ll the song by Leona Lewis!!!! Every time this song came on the radio I couldn’t help, but try to hit every note with her. Anyways, here it is and happy Thursday!!! Stay tuned every Thursday and everyday because I will be posting up at 6 pm and 7 pm central! Monday through Friday and probably on the weekend stay tuned! 

 

Leona Lewis- Bleeding Love

Closed off from love, I didn’t need the pain
Once or twice was enough, but it was all in vain
Time starts to pass, before you know it, you’re frozen
But something happened, for the very first time with you
My heart melts into the ground, found something true
And everyone’s looking round, thinking I’m going crazy
But I don’t care what they say
I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away, but they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein, that I keep on closing
You cut me open and I
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding, I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open
Trying hard not to hear, but they talk so loud
Their piercing sounds fill my ears, try to fill me with doubt
Yet I know that the goal, is to keep me from falling
But nothings greater, than the rush that comes with your embrace
And in this world of loneliness, I see your face
Yet everyone around me, thinks that I’m going crazy, maybe, maybe
But I don’t care what they say
I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away, but they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein, that I keep on closing
You cut me open and I
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding, I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open
And it’s draining all of me
Oh they find it hard to believe
I’ll be wearing these scars, for everyone to see
I don’t care what they say, I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away, but they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein, that I keep on closing
You cut me open and I
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding, I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
Oh, you cut me open and I
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding, I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
Oh, you cut me open and I
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love

Train On a Track- Kelly Roland

Starting today I will be doing Throwback Thursday: ALL ABOUT MUSIC! So I will start with something like this:

Music of today= TRASH!

I want to take the road back to memory lane, and remember of the good music we had back then. That type of music where you can just roll your car window down, feeling the breeze, in your room during any 4 seasons, where every word meant something, when you can actually relate, that type of music that will put you in a certain mood, the one that will make you want to clean, or slow/speed up on that accelerator of the car. Better yet, that type of music when CDs were the only way we could listen with those A-tracks, cassettes, or even put on the radio and every time that EXACT song that we liked came on just in time. You remember those days? Shoot, I remember when I had to download my songs with limewire, and I would get a virus on my computer lol!

One thing I would remember about every old song is the feeling that I would get when I would listen to it. Till this day if I hear an old song I can still remember even the smell of the place that I would be in, and especially that feeling that creeps up slowly within you. That feeling that would just make you take a deep breath, have chills, make you cry, or even laugh. I catch myself tearing up, not because I miss those days, but because I am amazed at how far I have come. Also, because each song reminds me of something when I thought I would never make it, but HEYYY look at me now! lol! THOSE SONGS! So with all of this being said, let me take you back to one of my favorite songs back in the day by Kelly Rowland.

Down below the video, I will post up the lyrics for you to follow along, and also this will be my new thing every Thursday. Today was just an introduction so let’s start! Sit back, relax, and just listen. If you used to love this song, forgot about it, and you are barely remembering this melody…..you’re welcome. I hope that this #TBT songs help you see that no matter what song made you feel a certain way…you came through at the end. For all of you young folks THIS…IS…MUSIC.

Kelly Rowland- Train On A Track

I wonder
If he knows I been watching him
And I wonder
If he knows I can feel him
and I wonder
In my dreams when I’m sleeping, and I’m keeping him close to me
I’m thinking
He’s the thunder, I’m the lightning
And I’m thinking
Maybe we can come together
And I’m thinking
We can bring the rain with a lovely breeze with such harmony
Like a train on a track like spokes inside a wheel
Involuntary motion like rolling downhill
And there’s no way to stop it
It’s a natural thing like sunrise and dusk
Snowflakes, waterfalls same thing like us
And there’s no way to stop it
Once you fall in love
I’m glowing
And overflow of happy laughter
I’m growing
Closer to you more than ever
I’m blowing
Daffodils and kisses, baby breaths, and roses gently
Touching noses
I’m sailing
Without a destination
I’m sailing
Explore uncharted places
I’m exhaling
No more lonely seasons, I’m underwater breathing
Drowning in the sea of love
Like a train on a track like spokes inside a wheel
Involuntary motion like rolling downhill
And there’s no way to stop it
It’s a natural thing like sunrise and dusk
Snowflakes, waterfalls same thing like us
And there’s no way to stop it
Once you fall in love
I heard a song bird, a seed came through the earth
Strangers holding hands, a crowd cheering in the stands
I’ve already seen all the evidence
It’s obvious love’s in the air again
Saw dark clouds blow, chased by rainbows
Saw two roses bloom just like me and you
Caught up in the magic I can’t pretend
It’s obvious love’s in the air again
There’s no way to stop it
Boy you and I
Are LUV in love you see
That you and I, are LUV in love
There’s no way to stop it, no way
Boy you and I
Are LUV in love you see
That you and I, are LUV in love
Like a train on a track like spokes inside a wheel
Involuntary motion like rolling downhill
And there’s no way to stop it
It’s a natural thing like sunrise and dusk
Snowflakes, waterfalls same thing like us
And there’s no way to stop it
Once you fall in love
Love ya’ll. God bless. Peace.

Tips for self-care

My time. My day. My Self.

If there is one thing that I love is having time… ALONE! Take myself out to walk around the garden, taking myself out to eat, going to the store alone, seeing movies alone, and getting my glam…ALONE! I mean no friends, partner, or family just ALONE. When you spend time on your own you get to discover more about yourself. Your potential, conquer your fears, revamping your inner self, and if you have the money then revamping your clothes lol! 

What I like to do on my own time is getting my nails done while watching a movie with no interruptions, and snacking in between. I usually put my phone on just as an emergency, but other than that I won’t even answer to text messages. I love enjoying people’s company, but sometimes I just get to anxious and I want to be in a place where I can just reboot my energy.

I also like to sit outside while hearing the birds, and writing down music or even poems that come to my mind. Another thing that I love is creating something new in the kitchen, and trying it out for the first time. There is always something to do for your own self that no one will be able to comprehend, and that is okay! So here are a few tips for self care that I hope you try out…even though I already said a lot of them. 

I forgot to mention, cry while watching a sad movie…I mean the notebook! lol! What tips do you have for self-care? I would really like to know so go ahead comment below, or like some of you do go and send me a message! Remember that I post everyday at 6 pm- 7pm Central time (I try to) so subscribe to my blog to be updated!

Love ya’ll. God bless. Peace.

Wedding party favors

Music, games, food, and party favors for people to take home! Okay lets be honest, every wedding that you have probably been (especially if you are Latino) we ALL have that one person that takes away even the centerpieces! You see all them aunts and grandmas take the centerpieces in their bag as if they are hiding money that they robbed from a bank. Listen now, when it comes to parties part favors are something that everyone takes with them that remind them of your day. 

Now, lets keep in mind that you are already wasting so much money on the party itself so why not keep the wedding party favors simple? Make it glam, make it simple, but make it a piece that will be memorable for them not to throw away. Also, try not to make it too corny as in giving a jar of honey saying “meant to bee” because trust me that honey won’t even last a day. It might even rot to be honest, so let that go!! You need to give out something that represents you, and the person that you are getting married with!

For example. if both of you love guitars then you can give out guitar-picks with your initials. There are packs at amazon for only $1, and you can buy a gold or silver gel pen and write your initials down. If you love candy, give out your favorite candy (even if its bumble gum), and keep that small theme going. However there is a trick behind this all…are you ready? There is one trick for them to keep what you give them though (no not the bubble gum), but things that are not eatable.

Polaroid pictures have been going on for a WHILE now which is why I hate the fact that some people say “it’s in trend now!” no honey it’s BEEN there! Count how many people you are inviting, put the people with their group of family, and buy that amount of Polaroid film. You do not have to buy so much film because the point is to take a funny shot with the family, and give them that as a reminder of your day along with the small favor that you give them.

The film is actually very cheap in amazon, and you really do not need a lot because the point is to take a funny picture with them. Make sure that the party favors represent you! The day is all about both of you not anyone else, and if you have hilarious friends like I do TRUST ME they will love what you give out. Make a creative way to give out the things to them too! Try to have the most unique wedding ever because “traditional” gets boring. You got this!!!

There are so many things for you to make your wedding, unique, perfect, simple, and under a budget. The first step is to have an open mind, and forget people’s opinions! I have another post coming up with that subject because I feel like everyone “feels” entitled to what you should do or not. I will be helping you relieve that pressure, and show you what I do to not be a Bridezillia and keep myself calm.

That is all I have for today, but if you want to keep updated with the series that I am doing, “Engaged, now what?” then be sure to stay updated, and click below all the links to stay up to date. If you are now married, what party favors did you do that were unique and interesting? Let me know! Or if you are getting married (like myself) what are you doing to make it reflect both personalities into one? I hope this post helps any of you out! Remember I post everyday (Or I try) at 6 pm and 7 pm Central Time. Till then ya’ll!

Love ya’ll. God bless. Peace.
