In this episode we discuss whether love at first sight is real or just a myth?? We run down our daily dish and catch up with you guys!.. Have you ever had at first sight?? Join us and tell us below!!
Today was supposed to be ” the best day of my life “, the day I got to marry my best friend. The moment that I spent years on a podcast wishing and hoping for. Instead today is the day I am grateful for the air I breathe and the beat in my heart. This wedding was never about the white dress that is now locked in a store , and is probably too big on me (stress does what months of dieting couldn’t). It wasn’t about signing a legal document that gave me the title of wife and he husband, and it wasn’t about gifts, or food or the perfect tux. What it was about is sharing a true and genuine love that we have for each other with all our friends and family. We practiced our slow dancing and our PG kiss, but that was for everyone else. Unfortunately today because of social distancing and this virus that is just everywhere at this moment, we aren’t together in the same house. We do the normal face time and watch t.v. together like we do when we are home, and for now that will have to do. No one knows when this will end .. if and when we can return to normal or a new normal. The wedding has been pushed to August. If it were up to me it wouldn’t happen at all , but money was invested and I don’t think we can get that back. Although all the vendors have been super accommodating. Shout out to them. We’ve talked about doing justice of the peace once the state opens back up or we just wait 5 months and cross out fingers for normalcy. This feelings I feel about today are not about a broken dream, but more of a broken reality. My hopes and prayers are for everyone to stay safe and healthy. Love always win.
P. S. It technically rained on my wedding day, so that’s good luck right ?!?
So I said we would blog here and there and keep in touch. Well, my bad. It’s been busy as shit. As many things that have happened that I was like “damn that would have been a hot topic on the podcast” have happened.. there literally has been zero time. So today I figured I’d start.
So yeah. As suspected, I got engaged. The ” how” is for another time. I’ll just say I am odd, he is odd. We are both shy and kinda impulsive and now we are here. So what I didn’t know is my mother kept a secret for a whole month. We are all really proud of her. But as soon as I found out the planning phone calls began.
So as where I have never been the little girl who was waiting for her prince and the day to wear the big ball gown I apparently forgot I was someone’s daughter who had these dreams of her own. The original plan was rent a house, get some food and have a giant wedding house party weekend. Finding a house is not as easy as you think. That was one. And 2. We are adopting. (Longer blog later) it’s Alot of work and I wanted a wedding to be as simple as possible. So we’ve gone with the semi traditional route.
So I have this little problem. I don’t like having a do to list. I need organization in my life. I enjoy getting tasks checked off in a timely manner. With that being said less then 2 months after our engagement I am done planning our wedding with the exception of hair and make-up.
Do I absolutely Love Love Love every choice that I made? In short.. No. Many decisions were made to meet my folks half way and because at the end of the day the only thing that matters is the person I’m marrying. He’s pretty awesome. The venue is nice, also affordable. That’s a plus. The dress .. give me shape and looks nice on me. Who could really ask for more? The entertainment is a friend so that will be great. It’s a small amount of people (apparently 100 is small for a wedding venue) so all of my favorite people will be there to celebrate the joining of two families and at the end of the day that’s what matters. Now if I can get my mom off the fact that she thinks I need a tiara all will be good. ( Does she know me ??)
Weddings don’t have to be a hoop-la. And I am hoping even though we’ve gone with a traditional venue ,D.J. etc the end goal of marrying my best friend and celebrating drama free with the people I love is a goal we can accomplish. No brides maids , no best man, no garter belt toss.. just a celebration of Love and a old fashion house party in someone else’s ” house”.
This isn’t good-bye …. it’s see you later!
We’ve decided to end our Bi-weekly podcast.. So as where you will not be hearing our lovely voices, we will be updating the BedLoveBeyond Facebook , the Word press website , IG , and Twitter. We also encourage you our listeners and past guests to share your stories and relevant articles on Facebook . Even if there is something you need to purge , email it to us and we can share it anonymously on our page. Sometimes It helps to just unleash the dragons.
This podcast was developed from many conversations about love, sex and other taboo conversation topics regarding human interaction. I feel like we learned , we laughed and hopefully we came out of limbo with love.
I hope we made having these conversations about cheating, sex, furries, side chicks, dating apps etc, a lot easier to swallow. As we have grown as people we recognize the importance of some of these conversations and I hope in the future if someone googles one of the many topics we’ve covered & our voices help them feel less weird or alone. Thanks to Martini for starting this journey with me and Thanks to April for riding with me the past year and taking most of phone conversations and puting them on air!
We will have one final episode in the next coming week! #thankyou

This week on Bed Love Beyond we are joined by Music Journalist Kathy Iandoli to discuss the aftermath of the Lifetime Docuseries “Surviving R.Kelly”. R Kelly is a world renowned R&B artist who was rumored to have dated and married Aaliyah in 1994 and has allegations brought against him in 2004 of him having sex and urinating on a 14 year old female. Although at the time he was found Not guilty , other allegations continued to pile against him. Most recently with the birth of this series, it has been noted that the R&B singer is operating an abusive sex cult, and with the growth of the #MeToo movement women are coming out in droves speaking up about the mental and sexual abuse they have endured under this man’s reign. Why did and do these women continue to flock towards him? Why are so many women and men still defending his name and his honor? What makes a person commit such heinous acts against another person?
