Update is coming!

I PROMISE I will have an update soon from last weekend. I will say that the "bachelorette" party was less than desirable really, but I also don't really drink or go out much at all, so that contributed to it. Today, I am on my way to Little Rock to see e's best friend and his wife. It should be a fun weekend away. On Monday, we are running a 5k together! Wish us luck on that one! I will be back with an update on the past two weekends, the fence, the swing, and the wedding which is 29 days away!!! Hope you all have a great weekend!

I am on my way to Atlanta this weekend with some of my best friends (and bridesmaids) for a weekend of fun! If you are in the ATL area and want to celebrate, email me!! I am going there for my....

When I left the house, E was destroying, er, I mean taking down carefully, the mantel in order to lower it and mount our tv over the fireplace. We will see how it looks on Sunday upon my to come! Happy weekend!

Perfection! *Updated*

So I can't believe Wednesday is already here and I haven't even mentioned anything about my weekend!! First, on Thursday I met a friend that I haven't seen in 15 years and things fell into place exactly like we left them! It was as if she never left! I must say, it was perfect. We met for lunch at 1 and I didn't get home until after 5:30 that night! Needless to say we have already made so many more plans for the future!

Then, E and I headed south to his sister's graduaion. We won't even talk about how terrible and unprofessional that even was, but it was pretty bad, and I will leave it at that.

Now on to fun stuff....Monday, I had my first dress fitting! It was my first and last! Yep, when I tried my dress on, it fit perfectly! Even my shoes were perfect and it doesn't even need to be hemmed! I was SO excited! I could wear the dress tomorrow if I wanted to! No worrying about getting it fitted again! It couldn't have been better! Then yesterday, we met with the lady in charge of the church decoration and the reception. It is going to be perfect!! The place we are getting married is so unique! Do you remember the movie Tom and Huck with JTT? It is where the movie was filmed! (Sneak Peek) So, it was so important to E and I to stay with the character of the town! The flowers and candles will be in mason jars. The flowers are all white. It is going to be great. I can't wait! I REALLY can't wait to show you all pictures.

But for now...I am going to go address invitations. I will show you the fence tomorrow hopefully! Happy Wednesday!!

Exciting Day!!

So, today is an exciting day. As I mentioned, I am having lunch with a friend I haven't seen in almost 15 years!! I am so excited to catch up and talk about all the changes and where our lives have taken us! It should be very interesting and have I mentioned that I am so excited! I hope I have some pictures to show you later!

On other news, tonight I am going to clean up a bit and pack. E's sister is graduating from college this weekend, so we are going to go see her graduate. It is crazy that another year has passed since we graduated and it has been three whole years since our college graduation! It is crazy how time flies!! We are going to drive halfway and spend the night and then drive the next morning. Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday and weekend in case I don't get back to you before then! I'll be back with lots of pictures I imagine!!

Laughing is so much fun.
Laughing is contagious.
I LOVE to laugh, I laugh when I hear other people laughing.
Don't you just LOVE to laugh?

Yesterday when E was walking out the door, I said, what should I blog about today? He said, I dunno, write something funny, make me laugh. People, I seriously thought about that all day yesterday. I just couldn't be funny on command. I couldn't think of anything that has happened lately that is funny. Except when running one morning some ducks scared the pee out of me, but you had to be there I think and you have to know my pure hatred to anything that has feathers and flies.
I also thought about how my body is giving me a taste of what it is going to be like to be old. Complete with achy knees, falling asleep at 9 even after an afternoon nap, watching the news in the morning, at noon, and at 5 and 6. It is amusing to me seeing how I am not even half way to 50 just yet. But again, something you just have to see.

So, last night, we were enjoying each other and poking fun, and just laughing. Pure and simple, innocent laughter. We were laughing at each other, with each other and out of love. It was just so much fun. I am SO thankful that I am able to enjoy that. I remember times when I didn't really do much of that. But now, things are so happy, carefree and so full of love! So, E, sorry I didn't write you a funny post, but thanks for making me laugh, laughing at me, and laughing with me! Here is to many more years of it!!

On another note....running is still going great, we are up to 2 miles straight already. It is going well, and it really makes you feel great. Tomorrow, I am SO excited. I get to have lunch with a friend that I knew back in middle school, then she moved to Washington and I haven't seen her since. Well, she is back and it is going to be SO MUCH FUN catching up. I will have to post pictures and let you all know how it goes! It is Wednesday! Which means we are almost at the down side of the week!! Hope you have a great Wednesday and a great rest of the week. Laugh often!

Weekend Update

I seriously can't believe it is Monday again! The weekend went by way too fast! Friday was E's day off. (He works more during the week so he can be off every other Friday). It is great because every other weekend is a three-day weekend for us. However, we don't always have a ton of fun! This Friday, we took advantage of the sunny skies and high temps to work on the fence. When we started, all that was done were the posts set in concrete. We made a trip to Home Depot and got the 2x4s that go cross-ways. We got ALL of those up and then we started on the pickets and the gate. Saturday, we were going to get up again and work on it, but it didn't work, we were just TOO tired! So, we took Saturday off and relaxed a little bit. Sunday, was mother's day. E and I got up early and we prepared lunch. We were cooking a roast and homemade rolls. So, we got all of that ready and then went to church. After church, we ate the yummiest lunch every with my parents and my brother. Then, we came home and got busy on the fence again! We decided to invest in a nail gun instead of using the hammer. Man, it made a HUGE difference! We are almost done with the whole thing. We would have finished yesterday, if we had not run out of pickets! So exciting! We ALMOST have a WHOLE fence and the best part about it is that we have done the whole thing by ourselves. Just the two of us. It is going to be a great accomplishment that we will be proud of when it is finished! It has also been so much fun spending so much time together with no distractions!

On to other things, we are still running and doing well! Even though it was HARD to get up this morning, we did it, and are moving right along! Oh, and I got a call this weekend that MY WEDDING DRESS IS HERE!!! Woo Hoo!! Now, I just have to make an appointment to go have it fitted. Hope you all had a great weekend and have an even better week! Don't forget to keep remembering those in Nashville.

Cinco de Mayo Fail

Well, as I mentioned yesterday, E and I were so excited about trying out a new Mexican restaurant that was just down the road. We went right at 5 and got there before there was a crowd. The first sign that it was going to be a disaster should have been when there was NO ONE in the restaurant and they asked if we had called ahead for reservations! We were like um, no, you just opened like two days ago and this place is HUGE, is a reservation really necessary? Then, after we said no, miraculously a table opened for us. Hmmm.....
Well, fast forward TWO HOURS LATER....we got our food. It was cold, gross and inedible. Seriously. I mean nothing is worse than bad Mexican food. It was the worst experience ever! I mean, I understand it was Cinco de Mayo, and we expected a wait. But not 2 hours (when we got there early with no one there) and getting cold food. I mean it was bad. So maybe we will try it one more time when it isn't a holiday, just to give it a fair chance. But if it is no good, then, I seriously doubt we will go back. It was THAT bad.

Now, on to other things. A friend of mine,Christen, from Montgomery has been pregnant with twin girls and she recently delivered them at 28 weeks. They are in NICU of course. She seems to be doing well, but the sweet baby girls could really use your prayers!

Happy Thursday! The weekend is almost here! Which means that fence building resumes tomorrow! Yay for my arm muscles! Hope you all have a happy Thursday and a great Friday!

Cinco de Mayo and sore abs

Happy 5th of May! A big day in Mexico and for Americans who need an excuse to eat Mexican food and wear Sombraoros. As silly as that is, that is my excuse for celebrating tonight. I mean who doesn't like an excuse to eat chips and salsa?? I am excited!

Well, as I told you all, E and I started running and have decided that this time next year we are going to be running a half marathon. Well, if you know me, you know I don't really do things in moderation, so not only have we decided to get up at 5 am to run, we are starting to do P90X in the afternoons. I decided to see what it was all about yesterday and did Ab Ripper X. I will tell you that I stayed in the Child's Pose for about 45 minutes after the 15 minute ab workout was over. It was insane. I can't imagine what the rest of the workout is going to be like. But I guess having a great body (ha) is going to pay off. We have also decided to follow the suggested calorie and diet plan, so it is going to be a huge life committment! We will see how it goes. We have about 8 weeks til the wedding, so maybe there will be some significant changes before that! We will see!

Anyway, hope you all have a happy Wednesday! I am going to go try and recover from my iron abs and a run this morning! You will probably find me in the floor in a fetal position. Have a great day!

Lots of catching up!

Well, as I told you last week, I had a busy weekend! Friday night, we all went to Whistlestop and heard my brother and his band play. It was a good time! Saturday, we had some crazy weather with threats of tornados and floods (which have now affected Nashville and parts of Florence just west of here). So, it was a lazy day that I spent napping and E spent in the garage working on our swing. It is finished now, except the clear coat and hanging it! He did such a great job! It is going to be a great addition to our backyard and a great way to spend time together outside. Here is a picture of it before the clear coat:

Sunday, even though it was raining horribly, I had a bridal shower at my church. It was such a nice shower and we got so many great things. I feel very lucky that I have so many people that care and want E and I to have such a successful marriage. We were like kids in a candy store when we were looking at everything that we had gotten. Here are some pictures:

Now for today, I am hoping to finish Angie Smith's book, I Will Carry You. I got it yesterday and am halfway finished. I know I will finish it today because it is SO good! Hopefully I can celebrate my one year blogiversary soon! Have a happy Tuesday!
