When I started this blog my intention was to update everyone on my wedding but so far it has been posts on anything from the wedding to random things that happen to me throughout the week. So I decided I would update you all on wedding stuff! This past week was spring break for Nate and I so we got our engagement pictures done in downtown Fort Worth, I love downtown pictures with the street signs and building in the background, they are my favorite. We went on Thursday afternoon and it was a lot of fun. We are definitely not models but we sure did have fun pretending, we were walking down the streets having a photographer tell us how to pose, kiss ect.. it was pretty hilarious.
The three most comical pictures were:
1. Nate kissing my neck-the photographer kept telling him to kiss my neck and for me to be serious,this was never going to work. Not only because it was kind of weird, but when I get uncomfortable I laugh alot!
2. Serious Pictures- we are not good at these! I can smile and that's about it, finally he would say, "ok..serious but NOT angry!"
3. Nate dipping me in the streets- its cute in pictures and sweet but it was not cute for us at all! First of all it made me nervous and I thought Nate was going to drop me so I was really tense and wouldn't lean back enough, then I would start laughing and that made it worse! So those pictures look like Nate is attacking me or trying to kiss me against my will.
To view our engagement pictures go to www.knightphoto.com click on the link storefront (top-right 3rd link to the right) next scroll down to the more on the bottom left and then you should see my name with our picture next to it.
BTW, I got my dress in! It fits perfectly and I love it even more than I did when we bought it.

Well I have not updated in a while, I kept meaning to but I have been so busy! So, first about the garage sale shopping... Nate and I went last Saturday at about 7am. We had so much fun with each other, he is a fantastic garage sale shopper. He found the good finds and got the good deals! The first place we went was an estate sale in Colleyville, the house was abandoned and we had to search through gobs and gobs of things.. I got a few vases, but then Nate saw something he knew I wanted but would not pay for and I could not have been more excited! Nate saw a kitchen aid mixer in the corner of the room and it had all the tools and bowl. So we asked the lady how much and she said $20 for everything, including the vases!! She told us she was not sure if it worked so we took it to his school and took it into the locker room to try it out and it worked perfectly! After a bit of cleaning, a few washes in the dishwasher it was beautiful and later that week I made him a cheesecake with it! So, now I have a kitchen aid mixer and I never thought I would get one, it is a creme/yellow color because it is older but it is better than new to me because it is such an awesome find! We found some very pretty platters, and then at our last garage sale of the day Nate found reindeer to put in our yard at Christmas.. at first I said no, but it broke my heart to see him leave without the reindeer so we turned around and got them. All of the reindeer and the sleigh for $25, you can't really beat that. We also got a brand new light fixture for an entry way or maybe above a breakfast table, its very pretty.
I got to use the kitchen aid mixer and one of the platters this past weekend for Cory and Nates combine birthday dinners, Nate wanted Cheesecake and chocolate covered strawberries. It was fun because I got to use my new things but also, my niece Shannon helped me a little but so we got to spend some time together doing that. They were a hit! Everyone loved them!
Total Garage Sale purchases:
Kitchen Aid Mixer $19
4 vases $2
Crystal Platter $1
Flower Platter $1
New light fixture $10
Total Purchases: $48

Today was a pretty good day, visited Katie and my grandma in the hospital, both are doing really well. I went to class this morning, had a break, then went back to class (biology lab) which lasted from 130-430, it doesn't matter what we are doing it never fails that she keeps us until exactly 430, I would think she wanted to go home also but apparently not! It was pretty interesting though today, we are growing E.Coli (the disease that cows were getting..mad cow disease I think) and we will see how much we can grow by next week. It is actually to test antibiotic resistance, so we gave some samples full course of antibiotics and some half, we will see what happens! This evening, Nate and I went to our Love and Respect Marriage class which was really great, we missed the last two weeks and our teachers invited us over to their house to watch the lessons we missed (lol, maybe they think we REALLY need it).
SO tomorrow I think I am going to go shopping, I probably won't get anything because I need to be saving money. I am normally not one to go shopping if I have no money but I really want to go walk around and look (it is very hard for me!), I would like to find a cute sundress, a swim suit, a good pair of jeans and a few other things so maybe if I find some good deals I can convince Nate to fund my much needed shopping trip :) I actually went to Ann Taylor the other day and tried on a few things, I love it there! They had some great jeans, shorts and a couple shirts I really liked. I would love to go start buying stuff for the honeymoon, but I want to wait and make sure all the cute spring/summer stuff is out before I go buy stuff.
Oh, I found out today that 12 of y relatives from Ohio are flying in for the wedding! I am so excited, I thought there would be a couple but I never dreamed that many would fly in! They are going to stay here for a week and just make a whole vacation out of it so that was really good news. We also put an offer on another house, we really like it but I won't go into detail unless we get it so for now I won't tell details. It could be a couple months before we find out and it could be tomorrow, it is a foreclosure so there is no rush for the bank to decide anything.
I will keep you posted!
