So here we are, 51 days until THE day and I feel like there is still so much to do! At the same time, I feel like things are coming together nicely. 🙂 On Valentine's Day, Chris and I drove to the venue for one of their open house events. We were able to sit … Continue reading Another Wedding Wednesday
I first heard about James Patterson and his self-destructing book, Private Vegas, earlier this week through an article on Mashable. I was immediately intrigued and thought that it was a very original, fun idea as well as some great marketing! I immediately wanted to figure out how to get one of the 1,000 free copies and … Continue reading The Self-Destructing Book
Over the weekend, we had out last Christmas celebration of the year which was with Chris' extended family (Grammie, aunts and uncles and all of his cousins on his Mom's side of the family).

We're living in a region where the … Continue reading Who needs politics? Movie night!
Last Thursday, Chris and I FINALLY got around to getting our engagement photos done. I know we've been engaged for 10 months but it took so long for a couple of reasons: 1. with everything else going on this summer there's no way we would have found the time to get them shot and not … Continue reading Engagement Photos
Holy cow, we bought a house! While Chris had gone through the home buying process before this was my first time and, obviously, our first time going through it together. I am so in love with our new home and I can't wait to fix it up the way that we want it. We closed on the … Continue reading We bought a house!
Two weekends ago Chris and I took a bit of a vacation hitting the black hills and Colorado in one fell swoop. With as crazy as things have been lately it was definitely needed!
