PERSONAL NEWS UPDATE:

-I just wanted to share with my followers that on Monday I got married at city hall! I'm officially stuck with the same man my whole life ahh! :P Thank you to everyone's warm congrats on twitter, it means a lot. Now, the actual wedding won't take place for another year or two, so when that happens I'll make sure to show you photos. Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures this time around, didn't feel it was glamorous taking vows in a little box at city hall. I rather show you all pics when I have a wedding dress on. That's a pic of my engagement ring and wedding band to hold you down until a year or two hehe. Okay then, enough personal talk, I just wanted to share my excitement! :)
