Before I show you guys more of my wedding photo’s I’ll rewind back to my bridal shower. These are the pictures I finally got a hold of from my shower. It was a total surprise that I didn't see coming…my sister in law planned it for me. I was taking pictures so I could post a look of the day...who knew it would be the same day of my bridal shower. It was so much fun and I got so many gifts...yay gifts!

Im so excited that I’m getting married on July 5th! It’s getting so close that I wanted to do a trial run on my wedding bouquet. I’m making it myself and this is how it came out, its harder than it looks in the youtube video’s. How does it look to you guys? The one I do for my wedding will look a lot better than this of course. I have less than 45 days until I'm Mrs. Rochelle Pena!!

This year is the start of a new beginning! I know you guys are all like "What are you talking about Rochelle!?" Well…My fiancĂ© and I are finally getting married in September! It's so hard to believe we have been together for four years…time passes so quickly. We have been through so many ups and downs that you couldn’t even imagine. Even through all the adversity we somehow managed to arrive at this point in our relationship.
It might sound cheesie but I knew from the moment I met him that I would fall in love and he the same with me.

He truly is the only man on this earth that I want to be with because he treats me so well and appreciates me even with all my flaws. On our wedding day I want to look amazing and hopefully make his mouth drop to the floor and cause tears to fall from his eyes (he claims he is not going to cry...but I think he will :D). I can’t wait to pick out the dress I'm going to wear as I walk down the aisle to my one true love!
I adore the Grecian style wedding dress because it flows beautifully off your body and it’s so comfortable to dance and twirl in. There are wonderful places to purchase a fabulous wedding dress online that are affordable like Milly Bridal Shop which carries a wide array of dresses in different styles. I can’t wait to start shopping for my wedding dress along side my mother and my best friends. I'm excited to show you all what dress I decided to purchase…but I guess you will just have to be patient and wait until after our honeymoon! If you are getting married this year too check out Milly Bridal Shop's wedding gowns of 2014.

Keep Your Relationship Going Strong: Part 6

Welcome to part 6 of the series "Keep your relationship going strong". In part 5 we discussed doing activities that your guy enjoys even if it means that you will have to sit through some gruelingly long sporting event. Making an effort to enjoy the things he likes will gain his respect and give you a few brownie points at the same time.

The following tip might seem a little silly or even obvious but I’m going to share it with you anyway. You girls out there need to start getting pretty for the guy in your life, there I said it!

When you first met him were you wearing a white t-shirt, grey sweat pants, and a pair of sneakers? I’m almost certain you were not in the above outfit, well I at least  hope so (your only excuse for wearing that would be if you were at the gym working out or out for a jog when you met him). 

You want your guy to only have eyes for you right? Of course you do so we want them to forever be attracted to us no matter how old or fat we get. We know how men are when they see another attractive woman walking down the street, they cant help but stare at her… (those dogs! lol). When your going to see him pretty yourself up a bit with light makeup, a cute semi dressy outfit, flirty hair, and a spritz of a sweet smelling perfume or body spray. 

He will love the effort you made to attract him and your sweet smell will draw him in. My fiancĂ© loves when I dress up for him and when I smell amazing, he is not afraid to tell me “ babe…you look and smell so good”. And lets be real girls we know we adore the compliments they give us…who doesn’t! 

So start getting prettied up for your guy at least a few times per week and you'll see some subtle differences in the way he is intimate with you..I promise it will help you to keep your relationship going strong.

See you in Part 7 of ”Keep your relationship going strong”
