Back At It

So it has been a while since my last post but I am back. A lot has happened since my last post. My family and I have been very busy and things don’t plan on slowing down anytime soon.

First, Happy New Year, I missed writing this blog, I missed you, yada, yada, yada. I am not going to waste my time or yours writing about goals for 2018 as if I was going to try and stick to them anyways.

It is really hard to find the words to put on the screen. Usually it is pretty easy but I am finding it hard these past few months to find my voice again. I really hate to waste your time so lets start with some updates.

K-Dub has been enrolled in dance and LOVES IT! All she talks about is dance class and her teacher. She is really cute in her outfit and to watch glide across the floor. She just turned five and the attitude is starting to be more intense. I cant believe that it will not be long before she is in Kindergarten. Where has the time gone? She still is a Daddy’s girl and I love every minute of it.

Evie is Evie. She is still mean as a snake. The best way to describe her is that she is a sour patch kid. She hits you in the face one minute and then the next she is hugging your arm and telling you she loves you. She is not a big fan of me but a die hard follower of my wife. She loves my wife. Her new thing now is to fight going to bed. When she commits to hating something she really commits to it.

BrittWhitFun is still the same. She is the leader of the pack. She spends her days working and calculating schedules and making lunches in the evening. She keeps our family going and I really have no clue what I would do without her. She is awesome.

As for me…My job has taken off in a very different direction then I ever thought would be possible as I am now more then ever in the core of my magazines. South Park Magazine has really taken off and we just had Greg Olson on this months cover. Carolina Bride has a new editor and I am working very close to her to get our magazine in front of as many eyes as possible.  In addition to working with the magazines I am also coordinating events which puts me in front of some new people and new places. I think this is by far the most fun thing about my job.

As far as fitness goes I have been in slump for the past few months. I have given up Crossfit and decided to journey out on my own. So far I am just not feeling it. I have however been focussing on my nutrition very heavy. Trying to find what works best for me and how different food affect my body. Once I find a new balance I will get back to it.

Very thankful to be here working hard to be a better me.

We Got Hitched! Part 1

Like I said in previous posts I did marry the love of my life and I wanted to share our story of our wedding day and the events leading up to it.

As many of you married people know, planning a wedding can be very stressful and fun. Me and my wife experienced this first hand with having to deal with time management and the different opinions that come with the planning process. For anyone who knows my wife, she is a planner and likes everything to stick to that plan.

The week of the wedding was very eventful. I had my final tux fitting, bachelor party, and our wedding rehearsal. I have to say and I can’t speak to many grooms about this, but I really have little memories of this week. It flew by so quickly as I am sure after reading this post you will understand.

This was the day of my bachelor party. I was waiting all day for my best man Chris to arrive and for the other groomsman (Spencer and Tristan) to arrive so we could go out. Brittney and her bridesmaid had their own party planned but I will not discuss that. After everyone arrived we went and ate a great place in Matthews called Hops. I loved it and the drinks were good too. After that we proceeded to go to the bowling ally were more drinks were included and I bowled really well. Last but not least we all went and saw the movie Thor. This was the perfect bachelor party cause I am just not a strip club kind of guy.

This day consisted of me running around and getting my haircut and going with my groomsman and father in law to our final tux fitting. This was a lot of fun. Brittney and the bridesmaids went and got their nails done.

The rehearsal was upon us. Brittney and I were so busy packing for our trip to Mexico. When we finally got to the rehearsal everyone was there including our awesome wedding coordinator. She was a lifesaver.  The rehearsal itself only lasted a few minutes and then we thanked everyone and left.

Brittney and I had our last date together as single people. It was an awesome dinner. We got back to our apartment at the time and watched so shows and talked about tomorrows nuptials. When her mom and sisters arrived we kissed one last time as an unmarried couple. I got in my car and drove to her dad’s house and met my best man, Chris, and groomsman, Spencer and went to sleep.

The details of the wedding are going to be in my next post. Stay tuned!
