Alright so I know that I haven’t been posting in the last couple of weeks but things have been going GREAT since Fiance got back from training. It’s been amazing finally being able to spend time with him after he’s been gone for 2 months - sadly his Leave is almost up - but we’re made the most of it. We went to the Aquarium which had the Parakeet exibit which I’ve been wanting to go to for FOREVER! and it was awesome to walk in a feed the birds; they landed on our heads and arms. They also shat on us. Fun. Lol we went and did lots of other things. Friends, family, and a LOT of stories lol. He’s not even done with trainging and he’s had sooooo many funny and messed up stories. Of all the things that we’ve done together the best we that we got married! So I’ll take this moment to go ahead an change his title from Fiance to Husband. Oh of you guys could see the shit-eating grin that plastered on my face lol. We didn’t have an actual ceremony just went to the court house and got everything done. Although, since it’s us, it was more than just that. We’re waaaaaay too goofy for something so serious. It was actually a bit of a fiasco to be honest lol. I’ll do this in bullet form so you guys get the whole picture : we were planning on going to the marriage license offfice, sign the paper work ad hve everything done. Yea, no, not what our parents thought. We were pretty much bullied into dressing up all fancy like to go and sit in this office wit normally dressed people. And it would have been easy had both our familie not been there lol. Legit we were the only people that needed to be there and there were like 8 of us. 8! So yea we drew a bit of attention. We then find out that they dont do the actually do the marriage there at that office so we had to go 2 blows over to the court house and do it there. We get there and we have to sit and wait for the judge to come - we waited about an hour… The whole time we’re sitting there giggling about most of nothing. I’m pretty sure it was nerves. Maybe. We finally get in the courtroom and the judge was super nice and we were being super goofy. The whole time she’s saying all the vows and stuff for us to repeat, we’re trying not to giggle at each other - mainly at me. My anxiety was throught the roof and it was making my face twitch and it tickled lol! So yeah, we’re married! Husband’s cousin was there taking pictures so there’ll be pictures up soon.
