Where does the time go? Just booked a trip to Mexico in September to celebrate my 30th birthday and first wedding anniversary! Don't get me started about the 30th, but as far as anniversaries go, it's happening Sunday!!! One year ago, I was stressing over the little details that go along with throwing a wedding... if you have planned a wedding, you know what I am talking about!!!
A year later not much has changed. I still can't bring myself to change my Facebook name to Annie Gorka, let alone say it out loud! We are still trying to get over each other's annoying habits around the house. (PICK UP YOUR CLOTHES!!!) We are still in love and best friends. And it is still an adjustment realizing we now share everything! I mean EVERYTHING!
So as we are cutting into that year old wedding cake this weekend, I just want to put it in writing: I am thankful to be so blessed. With things being so busy, sometimes it's easy to overlook how incredibly special life is...enjoy it!

JOE BIDEN TURNS DOWN CONNECTICUT TEEN'S PROM INVITATION..BUT SENDS HER A CORSAGE AND INVITES HER TO THE WHITE HOUSE
Vice President Joe Biden turned down a Connecticut teenager's prom invitation - but instead sent her a corsage and invited her to the White House.Â Talia Maselli, 18, wrote a letter to Biden seven months ago inviting him to be her date and edge out any competition. “I am inviting you so far in advance because I'm sure many 17-year-old girls send you prom invitations, and I had to beat them to it,” she wrote. “I could only tolerate a high school dance if I was to be escorted by the most delightful man in America.” Biden was unable to attend - but he had a handpicked corsage and handwritten note sent to her homeÂ the day before the big dance.Â “I am flattered, but my schedule will not permit me to be in Connecticut on Friday evening,” the note read. “But I hope you will accept this corsage and enjoy your prom as much as I did mine.”
BRAD PITT READY TO SIGN DEAL TO STAR IN “TRUE DETECTIVE” SEASON 2?
There’s been rumors buzzing around that Brad Pitt is set to star inÂ True Detective season 2 since, well,Â True DetectiveÂ season 1 ended. The show was an international success, with both Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey highly praised for their roles as detectives Rust Cohle and Marty Hart. It was unusual to see two such high profile actors taking time from their busy movie schedules to indulge in a little HBO series, but it sure did pay off. So, it’s no surprise that Brad Pitt potentially wants a piece of theÂ True DetectiveÂ pie. Since March, he’s been the bookie’s favorite to join the cast of the show, and theÂ Latin Post is now reporting that Pitt is close to signing off on the deal.
DANCING WITH THE STARS RESULTS
Part one of the “Dancing with the Stars” finale ended last night with a heartbreaking elimination to reveal the Final 3. So, whose quest for the Mirror Ball came to a premature end? Ultimately, James Maslow & Peta Murgatroyd were eliminated.
The couple hadÂ scored a 58 out of 60Â last night, much higher than Bure’s 51, which means fan votes likely put her and Ballas over the edge. Now PurdyÂ (59 points), DavisÂ (60 points), and Bure will all compete to get that sparkling trophy when the finale continues tonight.

The tabloid is reporting that the cast member’s future on the BravoÂ series is in doubt because of an alleged feud with Andy Cohen. “He was pissed about the way that NeNe acted on the reunion this year, so much so that he might not ask her to come back,” claims an insider. The alleged source goes on, “He thinks she has become a diva and was very irritated with her for not really answering hisÂ questions!” “She also acts like she doesn’t care or want to be on the show anymore,” adds the outlet’s insider. She has also tweeted out this week “Never stay in a job where you are no longer happy.” We'll have to wait and see...she is the last original cast member on the show.

And the blonde beauty is not planning to walk down the aisle in a traditional white gown. A source told Us Weekly magazine: ''Jessica is having something unique made. It will be very different from the Vera Wang she wore to wed Nick Lachey.'' Jessica - who got engaged to Eric in November 2010 after five months of dating - recently admitted her plans have been progressing and she is ''very close'' to issuing invitations for her nuptials. She said: ''We are very close to sending out our invites. I've been very picky on how I want everything to look and feel. Eric's family alone is almost 90 people, so it'll definitely be a big event.''
