I promise....

....that I am really not neglecting the blog! I feel like since I moved, I have not been updating as much at all! the truth is, even though I don't have a job, I have been REALLY busy! Between moving and unpacking and getting things in order, to cooking and cleaning and wedding planning, I don't know where all the time goes!! So I will catch you all up a little bit before I have to get up and get ready to get out the door!

Last week, we celebrated my little brother's 16th birthday! I can't believe how time flies and how old we are all getting! E surprised me and took off Friday to enjoy the absolutely beautiful weather we had. We got SO much stuff done around the house! Literally, we didn't sit down on Friday! Saturday was the same way! The weather was SO pretty I had on shorts! Sunday was rainy and we did some things INSIDE the house. Then yesterday, we woke up to SNOW! Yes, you read that right, SNOW! I was wearing shorts on Saturday and it was snowing on Monday. Consistency in the way of warm weather would be so nice right about now! I mean, it is March, almost April! No more snow!! Please and thankyouverymuch!

We are making headway on the wedding! Save the Dates have been mailed and we are meeting with the lady doing the reception tonight! Our biggest decision now is the honeymoon! E and I sat down for 3 plus hours looking at hotels and places last night! We are going to the French Riviera and Paris then back to the Riviera. We are just trying to decide where! We think we have one of the three places picked out, so that is a start right? Ha! Well, I hope the weather is lovely where you are! Sorry to be so MIA lately, maybe things will get better! Have a wonderful week!!

Sunday is a great day!

Even though the sun isn't shining and it has turned out to be kind of chilly, today is going to be a great day! Church first thing, putting the final touches on the house, then going to get my love from the airport from a LONG week in Germany! yay I couldn't be more excited for today! Have a great Sunday, whatever you do!

I am SO glad that Saturday is finally here! I LOVE Saturdays! Even though I usually finish cleaning on Saturdays, I normally end up going shopping or doing SOMETHING fun! Even if it is just window shopping! I think Saturday is my favorite day of the week! My favorite thing to do is turn on music or music videos and dance around the house while I am cleaning or making breakfast or whatever I am doing! I LOVE it! What are your favorite things to do on Saturdays??

Happy Saturday!

I can't believe Friday is here already! It seems like this week has flown by! Which, I am SO glad that it has flown! I am ready to see E! He has been in Germany this week and the house has been SO stinking lonely! But, not much longer. This week's weather has been such a tease. It has been in the 70's but today it is storming! Yesterday was such a long day for me. First, I had to go with my grandmother to the doctor and to run a few errands. Then I came home and did some quick things around the house. Then, watched Ellen, if you watched yesterday, the girl Katie at the end who asked Ellen for tickets to Idol and then Ellen sent her to cover the red carpet, was a girl I went to elementary, middle and high school with. She is so cute and sweet and I am anxious to hear how it went, I am hoping that Ellen will show her today!! Then, my mom and I went to a wine and painting class and painted an Eiffel Tower. It was so much fun! I will have to show you the painting, or if you are my FB friend, you can see it. Now, it is Friday and the weekend is upon us and I couldn't be more excited! I hope you all have a GREAT weekend! I hope the weather cooperates for all of you! :)

Another engagement picture.

Catching Up

Well, it is Wednesday, and this week is FLYING by! I am SO glad! The weather is getting beautiful (well, not today, it is storming). And I couldn't be more excited! Wedding planning is in full swing! My mom and I took Monday off (well, she did) and we went around town and were looking at all things wedding! We got a lot of ideas and bought some things and are now ready to get things going! We are ready to get invitations, rent all things needed for the reception, and talk to the florist. I have ordered my dress (this was a while ago), order the bridesmaids dresses and a few other things! It is really all coming into place! Now, we are talking about the bachelorette party, showers and such! We got our first gift from the ladies I work with, a cookbook from Williams and Sonoma that we registered for!! E and I are HUGE cooks, so most all of the things we registered for were all kitchen things! That is about all we need! I hope people don't think we are crazy! They may want to come over for dinner though!! Well, I am off to finish unpacking and getting things in order!! Hope you all have a Happy Wednesday!!

First Friday!

Good morning! Well, it is Friday! This marks the end of my first week in my new home, in my new (old) town, and having a new day to day! This week has FLOWN by! I can't believe it! I still have a few boxes, not too many though, and hopefully I can knock them out this weekend! Then,next week, E will be in Germany for the week and I will hopefully get some more settled in and things put away. We are in head first with wedding planning! Very exciting! It is all falling into place! Maybe I can get back into regular blogging next week, when I get into a little more of a routine! Hope everyone is having a GREAT week and will have some great weather for the weekend! I think we are going to have some pretty good weather here, so maybe it will be a GREAT weekend!! See you all next week! Here is a sneak peek of our engagement pictires!!

Well, I am writing my first blog post from my new homestead! I woke up this morning to snow! It was pretty exciting! I was thinking about how getting out and about was going to be a bummer. Then I realized I didn't really HAVE to get out and go anywhere. I don't think I am quite used to the fact that I have moved and I am not just visiting anymore. You would think that the MOUNTAINS of boxes that are sitting in the dining room would be some sort of indication that I have moved!

I am SLOWLY making my way through the boxes. I did get the clothes in the closet first thing!! That is the most important right? The fact that I got my clothes in order and TOOK OVER the closet! HA! Today, I will be going through even more boxes, and slowly but surely, I will eventually go through them all! I do see a yard sale in my future! Well, I am off to get busy! I have a BIG day tomorrow, more on that later maybe! I have lots to do!!

Just letting you know I am moved and am now getting settled! Hope you all have an amazing day!
