Hey guys. I've decided to get a new weblog. "It is Time". anyway, I will be using this one, but rarely.
Click here to see my new one. :)

we're married!!

So, the wedding went really well. It was extremely stressful towards the end, but it turned out really well. Music was a hassle until he joined the crowd. Which, we did have a crowd. We had quite a crowd. seven groomsmen, seven bridesmaids (five of the bridesmaids stayed at my house) six groomsmen stayed at our apartment, along with James Brown, Misty, and Jason. :)

so, everyone got here wednesday. Which, was a night full of games and partying. I got to meet a ton of people that night.

Thursday was the more hectic day for me. I had to arrange the rehersal at last minute...had to pick up a lot of people who showed up that day, because they didnt know how to get to the winery, and I had to deal with the music. Which, as previously stated was a disaster until Jason came.

Friday! Sarah J. took me to get my hair done. Came back, and us girls danced in my room to Numa Numa. we got dressed...I called my grandma and cried like a baby. A lot of crying was done that day for me. Then, Sarah J. left with all of the bridesmaids except Lindsay. My other bestest friend. SO, Lindsay was with me trying to get me and that dress in the car...she was support driving there...and stayed with me until the ceremony. :)
The ceremony went well. I kind of blacked out, because I dont remember much. I remember Sarah J. dropping Tim's ring, and his dad saying "bingo" when he picked it up. :) I remember Tim crying when he read me his vows, and I cried just as hard when I read mine. Then, the kiss. I was afraid that Tim wouldnt kiss me, because we had talked about that many times before and Tim, being shy, said he wouldnt. But, he surprised me. When Wayne said "you may now kiss your bride", Tim raised my veil, got in the jacket of his tux, pulled out a pair of sunglasses and put them on. Looked at me and said "Gimme some sugar, baby" :D lol, which is an inside joke for us. I was laughing/crying and extremely happy with Tim. :D

After that, everything was downhill. I was so relaxed. Tim, me, and the wedding party all danced to Numa Numa for the reception. It was a long time coming, and we had fun.

Tim and I slow danced to "Come what may" ...in which I then traded partners and danced with my dad, and Tim with my niece.

Then they decorated my car. Which was fun trying to get into, while there were balloons inside, seran (sp?) wrap all over it..and vaseline on the door handles. :D lol ....

The honeymoon was good :) We really enjoyed Gatlinburg. and thank you, Christy Baxter for giving me the number for the couple that goes to church there. We loved them, and they were very hospitable. :) We want to go back sometime when we can do some more things that we were unable to do the first time.

So, I am now officially Mrs. Tim Seaton and we have had a good two weeks thus far. Lindsay missed me so much she came back to see us. Sadly, she leaves today. She's coming back though. Hopefully, to live here with us. :D woot-woot! anyway, I now leave you with mine and Tim's wedding picture.

Well folks, this is it!!


Five days... and counting with ONE hand!! ;)


This is my last time I'll be able to be online and post as a single gal. So, to make the most of it...I think Inmma tell a funny story ;) (and Tim's gonna kill me)

ok, so it was last night. Saturday night. All was quiet. except my tv/dvd player which was playing Harry Potter...and Tim was in the bathroom grooming himself.
I went to my empty room that only has a mattress on the floor, because everything else has been moved to the apartment. I was slowing drifting off to sleep...when suddenly I heard my cat. I opened my eyes, and for a brief moment I saw a SMALL black thing run right beside me. My cat soon pounced on it. My eyes FLEW open knowing what was going on. My cat had chased a mouse right beside me.
So, naturally I scream for Tim, hoping not to wake my parents. Tim just laughs and stands there, saying "I gotta clean these trimmers" and I'm standing behind him saying "you have to come NOW!"

...Tim gets in my room, and we have an eventful time. My cat ran out (trader/scardy cat!) We chase it all over the room, until it starts charging at me. I scream and jump away, and the mouse darts for my closet...which still has not yet been cleaned. Tim wanted to leave the mouse in the closet, but I refused as how my wedding dress is in there, and I did NOT want to wake up to find holes in my dress.

...hehehehe, so Tim grabs a clothes hanger. ;) this is where it gets fun. I'm crouched behind Tim watching him, looking for the mouse. we're really into it, expecting the mouse to show it's cute face.
BUT NO!

It RAN at us! I screamed and apparently, I grabbed onto Tim when I did this...which made Tim freak out. The mouse ran over to Tim, and he's sitting on the ground, right? So Tim jumps up and the mouse is darting in and out of his feet, while Tim starts jumpin around. ..... which, I've stopped screaming at this point, and I'm just watching Tim and the mouse. They're both jumping around each other....I wanted to turn on the music because Tim was TOTALLY doing the riverdance.

....I laughed SOOOOOO hard. The mouse got out of the closet and was sitting in a corner, and I was on the floor holding my stomach and laughing at Tim. ...we eventually caught the mouse and took it outside where cats were anxiously awaiting. (They were ALL standing outside the door as if they knew we had a mouse) ... so, I dont know if the mouse survived the night or not.... but it was a funny night!

...and that is the end of my story, and now I must go. For I must pack up my computer and take it over to the apartment along with other last minute things.

Hope you are all doing well, and probably the next time I talk to you, I will be Mrs. Sarah Seaton. But for the last time on pleo, I sign:

MS Sarah PARKER

    I was reading comments and ran past some bibleguy comment about your wedding..I'm not sure reading it if it went like i thought it would or not lol o well enjoy the (nlsl) No-Longer-Single-Life! :P
    by andiquote at 07/10/06 7:04AM

:)


The wedding is closer...two weeks! crazy. :)

One of my bridesmaids FINALLY got ahold of me and told me she wasnt coming. SOOO...I asked Darian to be a Jr Bridesmaid because there was NO way I could have had 4 girls in blue and only 2 in pink. That would have looked odd with the way things are planned...so, Darian agreed and I went shopping with her yesterday and got her a pretty pink dress. It's not the same color as the other bridesmaids pink...nor the same style. But Jr. Bridesmaids never match anyway. :) So, I guess it worked itself out good :)

My second wedding shower is this Saturday...I'm excited :) I'm hoping that afterwords, Kari will stick around and she and I can do something. Dale and Kim are coming, so Tim and Dale can have each other to play games with :)

And all of the wedding is planned. Finally. we have everything. I'm now just waiting until the day before so I can run around and decorate and try not to be stressed about that ;)

Honest, my life is around the wedding and getting the apartment set up. So, I'm sorry if that's all it seems like I post about, but I really dont have much else to say. Other than things are turning out ok. ....it might look a little odd having a college-age groomsman walk down the aisle with a 12yr old...but hey, it works.

anyway, I hope everyone else is doing well. I'm sorry if I forget certain big events, but my mind is so preoccupied...when things calm down, hopefully I'll remember things like the big 20 birthdays ;)

ok...well, I'm off. Things to do, people to see, and places to go (all before Tim gets off of work)

love,

me

:) Things are better


I'm still having nightmarish dreams, but the stresses have left me. The week is over, and the weekend is here.

The family is here, and all of them are sound asleep. It's going on 2:00Am and I'm slowly getting tired, while watching JAWS on tv. ;) great friday night movie, hu? hehe

we've got our apartment decorated, to as much of our limited abilities. We have a leather couch! whoo! and an awesome kitchen aid sitting prettily (is that a word) on our countertop! :D I cant wait to put it to use. Tim did put my dishes in the cabinets. He decorated it and made it all color coordinated. He had fun with it. :) So, the only furniture we have is: 1 couch 2 mushroom chairs and the bed when we move that in. So-far that's it. Hopefully we can get enough $$ saved up to go get a stand for the tv and something to eat on ;)

But things are going well. I wanted to put pics up, but the pics are huge and pleo wont load them for me. So, I'm slowly in the process of trying to resize the pics without them being all distorted. :)

I hope you are all having a good Memorial Day weekend! Take this time to remember the loved ones that are still alive and with us today. So many people are reflecting on the past. Which, is nice at some times, but I think that we sometimes spend too much time remembering the past and not enjoying what we have now.

ok, my eyes have finally reached the "heavy" point, so I think I will go to bed. :)

With love,

me

    Hey Sarah! Sounds like your apartment is off to a cute start with its color-coordinated cabinets! I hope you can relax and enjoy the weeks leading up to your special day. So many of the little details that we tend to fret over really aren't important when you look at the big picture. So . . . treasure these special, once-in-a-lifetime moments! We miss you and Tim!

    hey Sarah, I'm so glad u and Tim are doing so great... things are going really good(wedding plans, that is). Steve is in California for the summer, and we both miss e/o like CRAZY! butthe good news is his sister Robin is getting married on Friday, so he'll be coming Thursday and staying til' Tuesday. It doesn't seem that long to other people, but for us... it's so great. We are missing e/o so bad, that even a few days will be great(i think u'll understand the best out of everyone I've told). Things are getting so crazy around here w/ the planning of the wedding...but everything mostly situated. It's actually good luck that he's coming back early, cause origionally he wasn't gonna be here til' the day b-4 the wedding, and we wouldn't of had time to get the license(So we were totally stressing about that. But now it's all good, we're gonna be getting it as soon as he comes back. I'm so happy that u and Tim are getting everything ready for u guys. Steve's getting everything ready for us in CA, so when we get back after the wedding everything will be in it's place. We're gonna be staying w/ his parents til' December,(when we come back) but we'll have all the privacy in the world... and when we go back his parents' will be gone an additional 2wks after us(so we'll have even more privacy for the "honeymoon"). Anyways, I'll let u go but I'll ttyl. Luv ya....Jen
