Looking for a new job for me!  So excited about this.  We are also thinking about taking up new hobbies like cake decorating for me and martial arts for Fiance.

I’m more nervous about after the wedding than the wedding itself!  My Fiance and I are going to be moving out of state technically, but just close enough to still commute to this (horrible) job if we want to.  We definitely don’t want to do a 2 hour commute twice daily though.  We’ll be moving in with his Mother and Father (ah!).  We’re moving in with them because we obviously need somewhere to stay while we transition but we’ll also save money.  We’d love to buy a house or a condo but I don’t know how it will work out.  My biggest stressor is finding a job in the new town.  Once I do, we can start to plan a family.  But with the job market being so horrible, my optimisim is kinda… gone.  We’ll see.  I just want a baby so much! 🙂

Resuming a normal sleep schedule? 

No big plans, but I’m looking forward to starting some professional projects I’ve put off while wedding planning and spending lots of quality downtime with Fiance in our new apartment.  (It has two rooms!  We’re so excited.)

We’re moving, I have no idea where, the Carolinas and Florida are on the top of the list…just some place different for a couple of years. Fiance is going to start school to get an associates degree in programming (he already has his BS in Electical engineering) I’m going to really throw myself into job hunting wherever we decide to move. We’re also trying to plan a trip to Disney in October with my parents. So we have a lot on our agenda!

We’ll probably be busy domesticating–moving in together, fixing up whatever apartment we’re at, gardening, building careers and credit, and so on. I will be working hard on getting a good job/published, and he’ll probably start looking for a new job within the next two years. When those things are taken care of we can start having babies. 😛 I’d love to build a house and get a Russian Blue kitty, but those are further off.

Fiance recently moved into his parents and I am staying at the house (long story) so he will be moving back, and nothing much else is going to change…we are planning on selling his house and buying a house together as soon as we can after the wedding, and hopefully kids will come in a couple years.

Well, BEFORE the wedding we’re buying a house. After the wedding, hopefully we’ll be settled into our daily lives and not worried about wedding planning, work, AND buying a house, lol.

We really don’t have any big plans until next year, and let me tell you… I’m definitely looking forward to them!! We’re hoping to either build/buy our first house next summer, get another puppy and maybe (MAYBE!) think about starting a family. Just a thought right now, but it’s on the brain!

I dunno about everyone else, but I’m looking fwd to not being broke! All our excess $$$ right now is going to wedding stuff.

We already live together, but not too long after the wedding we’ll be looking to buy something small. 

Also, FI’s fam usually goes on a huge group trip every year. Last year in Ireland he popped the Q. We couldn’t go to Jamaica this year (boo no play $) but we’re headed to Italy in Feb ’11! I’m soooo psyched! I might be more excited about that than our honeymoon!

And um…. no babies! At least not till after a 1yr anniv. Wink

After the wedding, we moved across the country for my husband’s new job.

I honestly dont know.. more than likely we will figure this out once we are officially engaged. My guess is I will be moving to Pittsburgh after  (or right before) the wedding.

@SweetAdelineXO your plans are amazing! thats so cool…

our plans are def not that exciting..ha!  we will be moving back “home” this summer (we’re in pittsburgh right now for Fiance school) after he graduates. Then we both have to find jobs and somewhere to live, yikes!! Then get ourselves a puppy!!

thats partly why we pushed the wedding back till next year, to save $ and so we’d be kind of settled. After the wedding maybe buy a house or condo.. but thats about it. No kiddos for awhile (if at all).
