we getta swear stuff!

tomorrow afternoon, garrett's going to leave work a tidge early & we're going to go get our marriage license. he's looked into all the details of this part, so just now as we were lazily sitting on the couch, catching up on ol' chuck episodes, stuffing our faces with brownies, he was telling me about the two forms of identification that i need to bring tomorrow. and he also said that we'll get to raise our right hands and swear stuff.

with a mouthful of brownie, i might've gotten all big eyed & said, "can i say the eff word?"

i mean, i was totally kidding. i would never. but just for a second, that option sounded a little fun. in a naughty way.

serious part of this post:

i must say, i've spent day and evening with Garrett for the last 8 or 9 days. it's been wonderful. we've had nothing but fun. our wedding is just a little over 2 weeks away. neither one of us can wait. last night - as we were welcoming in this new year, we were both a little overcome with excitement, love and appreciation. i'm excited for the wedding, for the official start of our new lives together. i feel overwhelmed when i think of how blessed i am to have found him... even just typing that sentences makes me cry a little. i know i wasn't the only one, either... both of my parents, i saw them both cry at one point or another last night. don't worry - it wasn't cause i was saying naughty things, it was tears of happiness & love, too.

welcome 2009. at the start of 2008, i didn't expect anything fancy. turns out, i was way off. this year, the year 2009 - i know it will be fantastic! i hope for everyone!
