So much time and so little to do. Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it.

There never seems to be enough time in the day. Im starting to think the calendar and the clock are my enemies. Its amazing how hours can fly by when you've got your head in the books. But regardless there is so much to do my planner looks a little likea disaster with scribbles on every page but things are moving along.

I'm officially halfway through the crash course of anatomy, we're on week 5, which is actually week 6 because there was a week 0, long story. but we've had 2 of four exams and I'm happy to report I got an A on my second exam to go along with my first exam and I have an over all in anatomy right now, which is pretty awesome, I'm pretty proud of myself, I've definitely been working my butt off for that grade, I'm definitely ready for anatomy to be over so I can have my life back.

Luckily i have had a little bit more time to start talking about wedding stuff again, Mr. Coastie and I are hoping to get our engagement pictures done in October, which im VERY excited about, i cant wait for that and we'll be getting save the dates out around Christmas time so that will be my big project over the Christmas break is to get those ready,  Ive got the save the date designed so all i have to do is add in the picture, i may tweak it a little bit, not completely sure yet. We've got catering in the works (thanks mom and dad!) and Mr. Coastie has contacted a DJ were going to meet with in October, so ill be sure to report how that goes.  and when im bored in class I google Places in Dominican Republic and day dream about the tropical paradise were going to for our honeymoon.

This week Mr. Coastie is visiting for the first time since he moved me in, Im pretty excited, I keep reminding myself that I have to continue to study for a week and not get distracted, but we'll see how well that goes. We have big plans to go to Siesta Key and to go see snooty (who is apparently the oldest manatee in captivity) and not to mention watch some gator football which starts this weekend (YAY!). In any case Im beyond excited for Wednesday to roll around! maybe we'll get some wedding planning done while he is here!

Thats about it for now i suppose, back to the grind!

a little of this a little of that

first of all i just realized it was August 17th.  This means i just realized were are less than 10 months away from the big day, which also set me into a minor freak out mode. I feel behind on wedding planning, i have quite a bit of tunnel vision right now on School.

School is going awesome, im kicking some major butt in my anatomy class (which is the only thing we've had exams for and pretty much is running our lives). My best friends are cadavers and professors and books, which is sort of sad. we had our first test last monday and I did awesome, the class avg was an 84 and I came in well over that so im very happy that the hard work and lack of a life or anything besides anatomy in my brain has paid off. I had my first advisor meeting today ( we have to have them monthly) and it was really fun, He basically told me i was doing awesome and he wasnt worried about me at all and to keep on keepin on, so that was nice to hear one fof the professors say i was doing really too. We've got another exam this monday which has about the double the material and is worth double the percentage of our grades so ive definitely been focusing on that.

my blog may end up becoming "how to plan a wedding when you have no time to plan a wedding"  In any case, my parents have talked to a good friend of ours who will be doing the catering and we're going to get a great deal so thats really helpful budget wise. Ive set Mr. Coastie up to call our DJ this week and try to work out some deal with him and Im in talks with our photographer to get organized and get our Engagement pictures done in october. so things are moving along, i just feel like i havent focused on it wedding stuff and I'd love to but every moment of my time seems to be occupied, I guess this means i need to learn better time management!  anyways thats it for now, i promise i will have wedding updates in the near future!
