The Countdown Has Begun


Well, the countdown has actually been going on since May 5th of last year (the day we first met), but as of today we are exactly one month away from our wedding date. Schwiiiing! Bangorang! Kahoooga! Unfortunately these explicatives only describe a portion of the emotions (and hormones) that are running through our bodies - well mine anyway. This is Cade writing this, my second post.
So, with one month till the big day, what kind of advice can you give? Yes you, the married or unmarried who may have happened upon this site. This can be advice on how to get through these next 30 days, what not to forget, and yes, even the honeymoon. Just remember that my parents sometimes read this.

Wow, that is coming up really fast. Okay, so my advice is first, don't listen to that garbage about never going to bed mad. In our case at least, sometimes it is better to go to bed mad and readdress things in the morning when you can think straight. And sometimes you are mad about things at night that don't really matter, and when you are thinking clearly in the morning you realize this.

Second, communication is key. It is much better to just say that something is bugging you then to sit around and fume and hope that the other person will be able to read your mind. They won't be able to read you mind, trust me.

As for getting through the next month and the honeymoon, I am not commenting on that if your parents read this. Much too awkward to comment on with Brother and Sister Taylor reading. Good Luck!

This is the website Sam was telling me about. I haven't visited it yet, but Sam seems to think very highly of it. He said it gives good dating and marriage advice.

So...you need advice and seeing as how I am good favor with your parents since I am their niece, I guess I can say whatever I want. My advice in making it this last month before you are officially wed is this...just do what you have been doing already. I mean you have made it this far so you must be doing something right. So just trust yourself. Set rules for yourself and don't take what others so too much to heart. People would always tell thane and I what we should do but we just found what worked for us and did it. We tried to go home early, but that was too hard...we tried to be in the company of others a lot, but sometimes that didn't really work out either. So my advice is just keep on doing what you have been, this next month will go way fast...ENJOY a little time apart...and ENJOY ALL the time you spend together cause after thane and I got married we don't see each other nearly as much.

Ashley, what the crap? Where have you been my whole life? I think I gave up on you after sending you an announcement and invite to my wedding and never seeing you or hearing of you again. I'm so happy you're getting married and so wowed at how beautiful you are!

Yes, we live in Vegas, so my advice is just elope and get married down hear and honeymoon it after you hang out with me for a few days.

I love you,
Dawn

Natalie said...

Sorry, I'm a few days late in seeing this query. Yay for me, I get to get on my soap box and talk and talk and talk!

I'm not going to lie, getting married was a huge adjustment for both of us. The first few months seemed like a roller coaster of extreme highs that were chased down with extreme lows. Ash, I recommend Dr. Laura's book "The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands" and her book "The Proper Care and Feeding of Marriage" for you to read together. You may need to reread it a few years later for a refresher course.

If you treat each other with respect you should have no problems. Be each other's biggest fan, never gossip about your problems or spouse to your friends and especially not your parents.

As for the wedding night, you guys are both dead sexy so I think you won't have any problems. Looking back on mine is one of the best memories of my life, though I wish I had just taken in more easy and not been so stressed or worried or wondering, just gone with the flow.

I'm so excited for you guys! Just from spending the few hours we did together last month, I know you guys will be just fine and oh so happy together! Soak it ALL in. It goes so fast and it is so surreal but just soak it all in because you only get to do it once {at least that is ideal}.

Jared and Rachel Jensen said...

The only advice me and Rachel would give you guys is to trust each other. Make sure the other person is always happy. The gospel leadeth us to live after the "manner of happiness (Jacob 3:6)

As for the honeymoon, just "do it". The kinks will work themselves out. Don't do things that would make the other person angry (in and out of bed).

i'm just going to refer to myself as your accountant and as such i wanted to advise you to always live within your means (i think you're there is the bmx bike). i also wanted to mention that the $1,000 child tax credit that people get so excited about doesn't even begin to compensate for the overall financial burden (and joy) of children . . . so don't be fooled there. on another note . . . got your invite today. cute. good luck with the final everything and enjoy your perfect day.
