So what is the big news? Well, remember back in April I shared my Engagement News? Well we initially planned to get married next year after a yr of being engaged. However things sometimes never go as planned. So my big news is, I will be getting married in a week. Yes, I did say a week. Lol!
Over the memorial holiday weekend we decide to plan a vacation to Jamaica, (where I am from), as we have never travelled outside of the country together before. While planning, we asked ourselves, 'why wait'? Let's just get married now. With just our parents, my sister and a friend names scribbled on a piece of paper we decided, let's do it! So that night we booked everything. Lol. Hotel, flight, wedding package.... everything.
Call me weird, but I am never one for big weddings. I entertained the idea of having a real traditional wedding next year. But that barely lasted a week. The price, planning and all the shebang got to me and I am like nah, city hall is good. Luckily my fiancé want whatever I want. Also, wouldn't that money look nicer in my account on a downpayment for a house one day? Yea I am one of those people that are very practical and money spending has to make real sense to me.
So, Jamaica it is. July 22, at 11am I will be a married woman. Omg, I will be a WIFE! Ain't that crazy? Lol. Yes, you would need to call me Shelly Ann Elizabeth Aiken. I love it! Hehe! So you must be like so where are your friends and stuff? Well see I think if they are friends and know me well they will understand that this was suddenly planned and that I also I wanted this wedding to be about me and my husband without messing with with my life savings. Call me cheap.....it's ok, I embrace it. Lol!! Eloping would have been great. Lol. But you would have to come to my funeral after my mother kill us. We don't want that. No we don't. Lol.
So, if you want pics and updates when we get back from Jamaica I will certainly share. It will be one of the happiest and intimate moments of my life. This will be my first time going back home to Jamaica in over 4 yrs so I am super stoked.
And the there is other news. Lol!
Dang, it just keep getting better right? Lol. Well we are expecting a lil bundle joy in December of this year. Yes folks. Your girl is preggerssss. Lol. Four months down and excited to see how this pregnancy change my body and enhance our marriage.
I am so happy at this stage of my life. I hope you would like to go on this married life and motherhood journey with me. Until next time, live well!
What is going on in your life? Do share!
