Oh Crap....

My mom just said "Hey Kara, how about you make the Christmas turkey so you know how...."

Major major problem.... Maybe I shouldn't have shared my blog with my mom....Maybe I can pull the I am a newlywed spending time with my Husband.... or maybe I can tell her the only way I can make it is if I am fully naked..or maybe I can just start sneezing everywhere the night before.....I might be stuck....

The last Thanksgiving :)

As I called Tyler today over Skype and said Happy Thanksgiving, I just saw this little frown on his cute little face. He just looked sad. This is his second Thanksgiving that he has been down in Grenada and not back home. There is nothing like your moms thanksgiving and I know he misses it so much! I told him today though it is the very last Thanksgiving he will ever be alone!! I will be there from now on and I will be able to whip up my very best thanksgiving meal!! No promises! It makes me a bit nervous as I am not yet ready to do a whole meal alone YET!! Today I did a broccoli casserole and the mashed potatoes! The turkey is what is a bit frightening but who knows maybe next year it will be show time!! 

It is just crazy to think Tyler and I might be in New York next Thanksgiving! It will be such an exciting time for us, but just crazy that we have no idea where we will be for another 9 months!!! 

I hope you all are surrounded by your family and friends and you have lots of little blessings. I have so many I just can't even believe it. I am living a dream life right now and have SOOO many people to thank especially my family! 

I hope your tummies are full and happy!!!

Paging Kara Wright?? Kara Wright?? Anyone!?!?

Well Hello there!!!! 

My mom wondered if I quit and gave up??!?! My answer is WEDDING OVERLOAD! I have to say I was pretty calm and collected regarding our wedding UNTIL I came home in October and realized my life is now CONSUMED by our wedding. Not only am I planning the wedding but I also have to do it with my cute fiance thousands of miles away :) Oh yah and have I mentioned he is quite busy down there, like 7AM-2AM studying!!!! I never realized what a labor of love a wedding is. Yes I knew it was a lot of work but had NO idea how much love, energy and time you put into 1 weekend. Everyone says it is so easy to loose sight of actually what the weekend is about and let me tell you I have had to remind myself several times this week!!! 

I have to say I am over the moon excited to become Mrs. Kara Manis! I am incredibly incredibly lucky to have the most amazing girlfriends on this planet! Seriously I can't even explain how these girls have been! One of my bridesmaids was 1cm dilated and having some contractions and CAME to the entire bachelorette weekend! seriously?!?! 
Or how about I had a DOCTOR take off an entire weekend of saving lives to come celebrate with me... Seriously!?!?! 
Or how about my sister who had EVERYTHING under the sun monogrammed with my new initials and the most amazing weekend decorated just the way I dreamed it would be!!!! 
Or How about I had 17 of the most amazing girls completely spoil me and just surround me with the most amazing gifts and love!! YES these are all 100% real! 

There are moments when I just wish I was on the beach in Grenada (of course in my dress) and its just tyler and I and we are barefoot, and we get married just the two of us and our pastor :) (we flew him down) The weather is a little breezy, No mosquito's (yah right :) ), really pretty music and a gorgeous sunset. Just Ty and Kara.... I am so thrilled to be his wife and I think he knows that! 

So that is where I have been, oh yes and I have I told you I am in the process of serious working out and dieting. It is so much fun! NOT!!!!! I have to be patient and I am 100% not patient!! Omg I thought after like 4 weeks of working out I would look like brooklyn decker... well unfortunately I'm FAR FAR from her, but I still have 30 days!!! AHHH its crunch time so if you don't hear from me you know where I am trying to steal a Victoria Secret Models body!!!!!! 

12-17-11 Can't come faster!!!!!!!! 

P.s. did I mention how much I miss this little one!! I  think about him daily and hope he is being hugged and kissed every day while Aunt Kara is away :)
