Goin' to the chapel and we're

gonna get married!

That's right folks, finally! January 24th is the date. We're goin' to Las Vegas, baby! I am so excited. Not only because we're getting married but because I have never been to Vegas and I have never flown in an airplane before so it will be a lot of firsts. :)

Naturally I'm not going to be your typical "bride." This thing has made me just so shy to be seen in front of people that we are only taking one good friend with us. I was putting it off and putting it off until I felt that my face was back to normal enough or I was "pretty again" but the truth is I just want to be married to the guy I love and I may never look the way I looked before so I am sick of all the waiting. It also sucks that I dont feel pretty enough to be able to wear any kind of wedding dress or have any attention bestowed upon me but at least we are going to do it finally. We are going between just doing it there at the courthouse in Vegas when we get our license or just doing it with us 3 (our best friend is coming with us) at a small chapel, I just dont know what all I am comfortable with yet. I told my surgeons NO surgeries between the 19th and the 27th so if they dont get these teeth attached next week then its just not going to happen until the very end of January or beginning of February. It's time for some ME time and surgeries will have to wait!

Of course I will have some pictures when we get back. This is a bit of brightness and happiness in all the craziness that has been my life over the past 3 years. Only a couple weeks left- I cant wait!
