the Old Millennium has ended in the best way possible, with me being pregnant, and the New Millennium couldn't start in a better way: Ron proposed me.
I'm currently admiring the ring he gave me yesterday night, midnight sharp, colourful fireworks visible from our hotel room, champagne in an ice-bucket, Ron on his knees and a simple yet beautiful ring held firmly in his shacking hands. Tears of happiness threaten to fall once again just returning with my mind at yesterday's night, the happiness is indescribable!
It's going to be weird to be called Mrs Weasley, haha; also, I can't wait to meet the little bundle that is going to eat half my lunch in an hour.
I'm in love

I just received a postcard from Luna from Sweden, where she and her father are studying some strange creature (do they even exist?), who bid her congratulations for the baby and wished me the best, confirming her presence at the wedding.
May 2nd, here we come! I shouldn't even waste ink to say that the families are already in a frantic wedding-fever, my mother(s) already planning and coercing people in the family to help organizing the ceremony…that is in five months… I really hope Molly won't tyrannize everybody like she did for Bill and Fleur's wedding, hahaha.
After much talking and discussing and taking notes, we opted for a ceremony in the Weasley's backyard, much like for Bill and Fleur, actually, but with red and gold everywhere, obnoxiously showing our belonging to the Gryffindor House. The dress is going to be kind of a problem, though, both because I haven't chosen a style yet and because of my growing belly, but that's when magic steps in: luckily Molly is an expert with sewing spells, among other housewife things she can do wonderfully!
What I'm really not looking forward to is meeting Aunt Muriel again…

lame attempt at cooking as almost-wife #1: my risotto was insipid, but the mushrooms made it rather edible.
I thought what I cooked for me, Harry and Ron during our Horcruxes quest wasn't that good because of the poor ingredients we were able to get while in hiding, but it looks like I am not a good cook at all…
I can already imagine Ron whining about how he misses his mother's cuisine.

morning sickness be damned, but healing potions be blessed!
Ugh, what do I have to live with to meet the baby…

I love my friends :) Those sneaky arses organized a baby shower behind my back and I got to see my old schoolmates, who all congratulated with me and Ron for the baby and brought presents with them.
I was really happy to see Neville, Dean and Seamus, even Lavender and Parvati, though I admit I wanted to cling to Ron every time Lavender looked at him for too long…Hah, he's mine now! Ron should be thankful I'm never, EVER going to call him Won Won.
There were also some Hufflepuffs and Ravenclaws, Hagrid, basically almost everyone that will be present at the wedding too.
They brought the most precious things: a plushie Snitch, a mini broomstick, clothes of every cut and style, a carillon with miniature moving dragons (that even emitted fire every now and then – I addressed my best fake smile to Hagrid, but I know I'm going to hide the thing somewhere, it's too dangerous!), a fairy tales book, a generous amount of diapers and baby bottles…
It was a fun time, though I feel like I've been molested from all the girls and women who touched my barely visible belly…maybe I should wear a t-shirt with "Touch my belly and die" printed on it.
Sorry, mood-swings are one of the side effects of pregnancy.
