Weekend Getaway

We had a great time last weekend relaxing at the lake with a bunch of my old college buddies. I can't really summarize the whole weekend, so I'll let the pictures (thanks Holly) do the talking.

Would you believe that we were playing baseball?

FPU, Weekend Getaway, & Misc. Wedding stuff

Hello, world. How about an update? Here goes.

Wednesday night was our first FPU class. It went quite well (Stefanie loves workbooks). I have no doubt that this will be a huge help in getting our marriage started in the right direction. If you are unfamiliar with the program you can see the first lesson here (free).

We are very excited about the events of the upcoming weekend. We are getting together with many of my friends from college (they are Stefanie's friends now, too) for a weekend at the lake. It will be a great time to catch up and reminisce.

In a wedding plans update, we have tuxes picked out, invitations ordered, and are trying to figure out what the next big item will be.

That's all for now.

Another Important Count Down

In case you were unaware, season 5 of the office will begin shortly. If you are not familiar with the office, then you only have a few weeks to find the first 4 seasons on dvd and start watching. There are also a few episodes on hulu.

Time Is Flying By!!!

Well, every night before I go to bed, I always check our blog & watch as the time on our "countdown to the wedding" ticks away. If you've been reading our blog, you know that we've done quite a lot already. I realize that the amount of things we've accomplished in comparison with my schedule is very good. We're really ahead of schedule. HOWEVER, I just keep thinking, "well...I've done this, so now I might as well get this done in order to check that off of my list" & as much as I love the countdown, it makes me a bit nervous to watch. I feel like I need to get so much done, & no matter how much I try to get ahead of schedule, I can always think of other things that can be done. WHEW! For some reason I didn't realize ALL that goes into planning a wedding. I was just telling Scott the other day that I am honestly bored with this process (as you can imagine, Scott feels the same way..haha). I'm just ready for the day to be here & to be his wife. As much as I love the idea of the wedding day itself & walking down the isle to him, I'm just ready to be his wife & for him to be my husband. I can't wait to begin this new chapter in our lives. So, in all reality...I guess that as much as I stress about getting things accomplished while looking at the time tick away on the countdown, I'm also excited because it's that much closer to the day being here.

FYI...I think we're closing in on a honeymoon location! :) I'll keep you updated.

One Year Together

Saturday Stefanie and I celebrated our one year dating anniversary. We spent the evening taking in a movie, enjoying a wonderful dinner, and then took in some of the olympics. Looking back, we have had an amazing year together. We've had ups and downs. We've laughed and cried together. I can't help but believe that we've yet to experience the highest highs, and probably the lowest lows. I know that things won't always be easy, but it is a wonderful feeling to know that I've got my best friend by my side.

sorry if you are sick from all of the mushy stuff

One More Thing....

Alright....when I was coming up with my list of things that we've accomplished so far for the wedding, I forgot to list one VERY IMPORTANT (do you see this Dave???).....I mean VERY IMPORTANT part of the wedding that we've already decided on. Our wonderful photographers!!!! Yes, we have chosen our photographers, too (Dave & Whitney Scott). In all honesty, we are really excited about having them because they do amazing work! Choosing them was actually the very first thing that we did when preparing for the wedding, & we are looking forward to the work they'll do. :)
