Rambbbbbbbbbbblin' Rose and Tattoos

Or I guess I should say, rambling peony with this picture. Eh, whatevs.

If you couldn't tell, today's post will be a bit random. Shocking right?

I feel like my blog lately has been a hodgepodge of mishmashed wedding posts, with some randomness through in there for good measure. I can't lie, there have been days where I've just thought about going dark for the next few weeks until the wedding is over because things get stressful and busy. And really, this blog is just for fun, it's not a job, I'm not really bringing in money or anything, so if I go dark nothing will really be effected.

But, then I think about looking back in a few years and not having the posts to look back on and then I end up posting something. Because to me, something is better than nothing. A random post [like this one] will remind me what I was feeling and will be fun to read later on in life. Well, at least I think so.

I wish I was more organized in my posting though. I wish I could write posts that are informative for others and not just this is what I did. I never really laid out what we registered for or much of the planning. I've given snippets here and there but really, I don't think I'm sharing enough information, just stuff. That's not all bad though, this is the Internet and I'm pretty careful about what I choose to share and what I don't.

Which leads me to my next random point....HOW am I going to share all of the wedding stuff, without revealing mine and C's name? I ADORE my invitations and am pretty much in LOVE with my wedding programs and want to share it here, but if I do, our real names will be 'public' and I'm not sure I want that yet. There are very few IRL life people that know I blog and I want to make sure it stays that way. I'm confident in the pictures I post of others, that they are flattering and aren't anything that anyone would be upset about being online, but that doesn't mean I want everyone knowing what I do. I know C doesn't want his name on here, and I respect that, but am unsure how I'm going to share our special day and keep things anonymous.

KEYCHANGE [or subject change. all you musicians know what I mean]

We're down to crunch time and I'm seeing every missed gym opportunity as a chance of unhappiness with my appearance on my wedding day. Yes, I'm petite, but I don't want to look frail. That is not who I am, and it's not a look I'm a fan of on anyone personally. I'm much more into the seksi, fit and strong look for women. I lack curves for the most part, so looking fit and strong is the only thing I've got. Yes, I know I'll look lovely and beautiful on my wedding day, but I don't want flabby arms or chicken cutlets spilling over the top of my dress. I'm working HARD to get the gym six days a week, to try and BLAST the fat and tone up the muscle. It's been rough getting up in the mornings though, I'm tired after work and wedding prep. I literally dragged myself to the gym late today, just to make sure I got in a good workout. I've been doing pretty well on my diet [yes, post still to come], hoping the WOOOSH happens soon.

Damn, I miss my college body....come back for the 7th mmmmkay?

Lastly, as much as I've semi-complained about the big move and the big changes coming my way, I'm really excited. Nervous, but excited. I'll be living with a MAN, who will be my husband, CRAZY! I'll be a wife and hopefully someday a mommy, WOW! It's all coming together, God is SO GOOD!


Today I'm also linking up with my gal TORI, for Tattoo Thursday.

What, you didn't know lil miss Pinky and all her glitter and unicorns had a tattoo?!?!

Yes, ma'am I do!

I just have one, small tattoo that I had done on my 25 birthday.

I had wanted one since college and figured my 25th birthday was the perfect occasion. I hid it from all of my family and close friends, and just went with my good friend and coworker to get it done. There is a stigma attached to tattoos and I didn't want ANYONE forming an opinion I was doing this to 1] get attention, 2] to be a bad@$$, and I didn't really want people to question why.

It took about a month for me to tell friends and family and surprisingly they were all pretty cool with it. Minus the parentals of course, but hey, who didn't know that?!? They came around when they realized it is always covered and was just for me, nothing else.

So you wanna know what my tattoo is????

........ANGEL WINGS...........

Ummmm, yeah no!

 Not that kind of angel wings, shudder.

Mine is very small and very very simple.

And no, I won't tell you where it is, that's my secret :)!

Tori had some questions posted too, so here are my answers. 

1.) What was your first tattoo? My angel wings :)
2.) What is the tattoo you want to get and where? Possibly a special/secret one with C!
3.) Have you had a bad tattoo experience? Nope
4.) What tattoo that you have is your favorite and why? Only have one and I love it.
5.) Why don't you want a tattoo? I GOTS ONE WOOPWOOP!

No going dark!!! no, noppers, no way. You can be as all over the place as you wish. These will be great memories to look back on!

Carolyn said...

EEK! You're so close to the wedding! :) Make sure to enjoy the last moments... as stressful as they are... enjoy them!!!

You could block out your names on the invites? Or does that wreck the look?

Again, Pinky, relax, your wedding will be wonderful and you will be the most beautiful bride ever!

Don't worry about the blog, it's about you, and if you're a busybody all over the place these days, then your blog will be as well.

On the wedding invites: Can you scan the invites and black out the names? If not, simply put some sticky notes over the data you want to remain private. It's not as pretty, but it gives an idea on how it looks.
