Big news in the Driver house!

So I haven't posted since we got married almost a year ago. I can't believe how quickly the time has flown by! We really have had so much fun, I just love being married to such a wonderful person. Our house still isn't exactly the way we want it to be... there is so much work to do, but I think that is normal. Hopefully I will be better about updating this blog and can post pics of the home improvement process...

To the big news though.... about a month ago Nate and I found out we are going to have a baby!! We are very excited, I am almost 10 weeks now... We have had a sonogram and seen the baby's heartbeat- it was so exciting!

I have another sonogram next week so when I update next, I will post the sonogram picture!

You can call me Mrs. Driver!

The wedding was perfect! I couldn't have imagined having a more perfect wedding- it was beautiful, it ran smoothly and I had a great time! Before the wedding I was getting sooo stressed out- you can ask anyone :) but on the actual wedding day I was so calm-it was wonderful. I had fun getting ready and I was so anxious to see Nate. The ladies who put everything together did such a great job and when I finally saw the whole thing put together I just started crying because I couldn't believe it was MY wedding! Then when I saw all of the people we love there to be a part of the wedding, walked down the aisle with my dad, and saw Nate I cried some more, of course!!

Right before the ceremony started is when I really started to get antsy, Marc (our pastor) came in to tell me it was almost time and I had about 10 min until it all started and I just kept thinking about how I was the luckiest girl in the world, because I got to marry Nate. He is just so wonderful and I thank God that he put me with him. The ceremony was great. I was calm, but excited! The reception was a blast, there were so many people there! I am so thankful that we got to share that day with all of the people we love so much. We are so blessed to have friends and family to support us and be a part of our lives! It was almost overwhelming because it seemed like everyone we talked to had done something so sweet for us and I wanted to tell everyone how much it meant to us what they had done or how happy we were that they made it to our wedding. We had people at the wedding that were so generous and helped make the wedding so wonderful, some our family friends gave us our wedding invitations, decorated for the wedding, a family friend made our wedding cakes, ect. Those are HUGE things!! We just hope that we are able to show everyone how much we appreciate their love and support!!!

Ok- I need to mention the honeymoon. IT was so fun! We went to Santa Rosa Beach, Florida and it was just beautiful. We got in on Saturday and had to leave Tuesday but we had a blast. I am going to tell some more stories about the honeymoon and wedding but I have to go help Nate put up his new ping pong table (that is his wedding gift from me :) he bought me my wedding jewelry and I got him a ping pong table lol my gift is not near as sweet but he is so excited!)

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue

With 3 days left, this is on my mind! Of course I have something new and blue, but nothing old or borrowed! My dress is new and my garter has blue on it- tomorrow my day will be dedicated to figuring out my old and blue items for the wedding! I know it is not a huge deal, but I kind of want to have it.

Tomorrow I pick up my wedding dress, and I think I am finally finished making decisions for the wedding, YEAH!! (It is about time lol)

I have to talk about my bachelorette party for a moment... I really do have the greatest friends! They put so much thought and effort into the party, from the colors to the clothes and agenda, it was perfect. Everyone at the party wore pink and black, they had the cutest cake for me! I am going to attach a picture and you won't believe it but Celice and Meredith made it, they are so talented! We had the lingerie shower and I got some really cute things, then we went to Pete's Piano Bar for my last night out on the town as a single lady! It was so great, my friends did everything possible to make it a great night and it was. They also made a video of Nate answering questions about his favorite food, our most embarrassing moment, who will clean the most ect.. they would pause it and see what my answer was and see if our answers matched up-it was so cute! We did pretty good! The two we got wrong were "if Shelby were a Disney Princess who would she be, and what is Shelby's favorite thing about Nate"

Until next time!!

10 days to go!!

WOW, I can't believe I am getting married next week! I am actually awake right now because I can't sleep. I came home and laid down because I need to get some sleep before work tomorrow but my mind is racing with things I have to do, and thinking about how close the wedding really is. I wish it would already be here!!

I have to brag on Nate a little bit in this blog post, he has been wonderful recently when it comes to the wedding stuff! I was getting completely stressed out, so he sat me down and we made a list of things that needed to get done. The next day he called me with a ton of them checked off the list and we are so close to being finished with all of them! lol, I know I put some things off ;) When I get stressed out, I do the worst thing possible- I stop doing all of the stuff that needs to get done, I guess I just get overwhelmed.

So, with 10 days left until I get married, I have been thinking a lot about everything and what a big decision Nate and I are making. But, it does not scare me at all about getting married and spending the rest of our lives together, that sounds perfect! I can't wait to be with Nate everyday, and live together, and make decisions together-we have so much fun together! I love being with Nate, he really is my best friend! One thing that does scare me though, is everyone watching me walk down the aisle and kissing in front of 250 people!! :0 Nate and I are not very affectionate in public, we do hold hands but nothing more than that really.... there was one time when Nate bought me this great pair of shoes and I was so excited, so I gave him a kiss at the register. Afterwards, we were both embarrassed because that is not the norm for us lol-so the idea of kissing in front of everyone and it being such an intimate moment really freaks me out! Of course, it means so much for all of our family and friends to share that time with us, so it will be great!

I will update soon! (hopefully before the wedding)

17 days to go!!

I can't believe it, 17 DAYS TO GO!! It is coming so fast and I am so excited, nervous and a little overwhelmed... I can't wait until we are married and we get to hang out together in our house and just relax! At the same time, I am nervous because there is so much that is going to happen in the next couple weeks and I feel like there is not enough time for it all to happen!

The house is really coming along, we have painted almost all of the house, scraped ceilings and now it is time to start working on the kitchen. The cabinets will be painted white, cabinets are getting raised about 6 inches tomorrow night and we are getting new counter tops. We got all new appliances and they are beautiful!

I don't think I have made a post about my new job yet! I got a job at Range Resources in Fort Worth . It is an oil and gas company-they primarily focus on natural gas. I am working in the communications and investor relations departments. I really enjoy it so far, I have been working on the publication they put out every 4 months, but once that goes out I will be doing more stuff with internal communications and investor relations...

Until next time!

Master Bedroom dilemma..

This summer has just been flying by, so much has happened already and there is still so much left to do! I have not update in a while because of how busy I have been. We have been working on the house non stop and I have been looking for paint colors for all rooms in the house. It is very hard to choose paint colors and even though it is not permanent I do not want to change it...

Here is my master bedroom dilemma...I can not figure out what to paint this room! The furniture includes: Black canopy type bed, white armoire, black night stands and all white bedding. I be live the only colors that would work are blues, grays and white or tans.... I am so overwhelmed by this! I want the room to be calm and beautiful, with a very classic look. Not too modern, but a little modern and still classic at the same time. If you have any ideas, please let me know!

Until Next time, I will leave you with a few bedroom photos I love!

Can anyone tell me whose bedroom this last photo is???
