I had to leave work on Wednesday because I was bawling every few minutes and I’ve been okay since then, but I am so overwhelmed with emotion.
1. Our wedding is in a month. I’m so excited and a little scared because it’s such a big step.
2. I really want to invite my dad’s second wife&&her fiancé (he’s on his third) to our reception, as she’s been a huge part of my life for 14 years and is doing our pictures. I’m closer to her than either of my parents. I just don’t want my dad to be uncomfortable and I don’t even know how to bring it up. He had an affair while they were married (with my now stepmom, who will not be there), so it’s just all sorts of drama. Especially with a reception of 25 people.
3. My ex (who I lived with for 8 months after breaking up and it was very amicable) is sleeping with my next door neighbor…and has been over here the past four nights (they’re townhomes so we share a wall). I don’t mind hanging out with my ex, but I don’t need to hear his voice and laugh EVERY SINGLE NIGHT. I find him a little annoying, and I can’t even enjoy us not living together tonight because I can hear them out on the patio.
4. Our best man is dating my fiancé’s ex. It’s offical. So she’s been commenting on our engagement pictures on facebook and acting all normal, but she found out where we were thinking about getting married, but aren’t going to anymore because we found somewhere we like more (the previous venue was a garden you have to pay to get into) and went there LATER THAT DAY. I’m not sure if anyone else finds this weird, but personally, if I found out my ex was getting married I wouldn’t make it a point to go scope it out…..especially later the day I find out. I just really don’t think she’s over him. Earlier she facebook messaged him saying we “actually look like a very cute couple in those pics, like adorable” and later asked if he was ready to get married. I have a feeling she’ll be upset our best man is not getting a plus one.
I’m obviously just very, very sensitive. But also, here are some engagement pictures. Thank you for reading : )

Your engagement pics are gorgeous. Is that your little girl? She’s such a cutie!
It’s no wonder you’re feeling so emotional!! Oh my gosh, if all that was going on for me I’m sure I’d be bawling at work too. Sending you a big hug and best wishes in the lead up to your wedding day x

Thank you both : ) She’s my soon-to-be stepdaughter whom we have full custody of. Her biological mom isn’t in the picture, so she considers me her mom. : )
I’m hoping that everything will work out! Even if everything goes horribly at least we’ll have some awesome stories ;p

That ex sounds off her rocker! The SAME DAY?! That’s more than a little creepy.
Your pictures are precious, though!

Yup. She found out around 1pm/2pm (my fiancé took our daughter to see her for lunch) and then her boyfriend/our best man tagged himself there at around 6 or 7pm…so like 4-6 hours later? I want to be friends with her just to make things simpler, but things like that really weird me out and gives me bad vibes. My fiancé asked her about it, like oh hey saw you were out there, and she ignored his messages haha. So it’s definitely sketch.
And thank you : ) I’m glad they turned out!

Such cute pics, your little girl is adorable! And no, his ex isn’t over him, becuase who does that? The important thing is that he wants to marry you and you guys are going to have a beautiful day.

Thank you : ) And that’s definitely what I try to focus on. It just gets frustrating when she’s always inserting herself in our lives in ways that aren’t appropriate. They broke up over a year and a half ago, but as recently as May she was teling him how she’ll always love him and that she’d wait for us to break up…and he told her that even if we did (which we won’t) he wouldn’t date her. I can totally understand it taking awhile to get over someone, but until she’s 100% there and moved on, I don’t feel comfortable with her being so close to our lives. Dating our best man so soon just seems like a really strange, awkward rebound and way to remain in our lives, especially my fiancé’s.
