Engagement Photos

Dave and Whitney have posted a few of the engagement pictures we took tonight. Check them out on their blog.

All of the pictures were taken at Red Oak II, an old town that an artist bought up and had moved just on the outskirts of Carthage, MO. We had a ton of fun and will let you know when more pictures are available for viewing. Enjoy.

Honeymoon Excitement!!! ;)

We have made a decision! I'm happy to say that we are going to the Riviera Maya for our honeymoon. We had been considering both Jamaica & the Riviera Maya, but we've decided on the Riviera Maya based on all of the wonderful things that our travel agent told us. We'll be staying at an all-inclusive resort called Barcelo Tropical & Colonial Beach. This is actually two resorts right next to each other (one is the Tropical & the other is the Colonial). We honestly couldn't tell the difference between the two resorts in the photos that we looked at because they are right next to each other, but our travel agent said that she always puts in a request for the Barcelo Tropical Beach. ANYWAY...I think that we're both really excited about the trip. This will be an awesome time for us, I'm sure! The only downside is that our flight leaves at 6:30 the morning after the wedding. If you know me, I am NOT a morning person. I'm sure it will be worth it, though. :)

24 seems a lot younger than it used to

Today is Stefanie's birthday, that's right the big two four. Tonight we are going out to eat with her parents and grandma to celebrate (I almost forgot the cookie cake afterwords). Hopefully The Olive Garden will be less crowded than last year. To top it off, our good friends Jared an Lacey Lett welcomed Adele Elizabeth into the world this morning. Congrats guys, and I will try to sleep extra for you since you won't be sleeping so well for the next 18 years.

It's been several days since we've last posted anything, & now we're into the month of September. I can't believe how fast these past few months have flown by. September is going to be a pretty big month. First of all, today we met with our travel agent. The honeymoon has been narrowed down to the Riviera Maya or Jamaica (I'm REALLY excited just thinking about it!!). This weekend Scott and I are helping our church with the Senior Retreat at Green Valley Bible Camp. We'll be hanging out with the youth group Friday night through Sunday morning. It should be a lot of fun. We did it last year & had a great time! Next weekend my Grandma is coming for a visit (for my birthday) & staying through the following week. I'm also really looking forward to the weekend of the 20th. We'll be going to Joplin & Dave & Whitney will be taking our engagement photos!!! It will be a blast, I'm sure! The last weekend of the month, my cousin (and matron of honor), Erin, will be coming for a visit & going to order her bridesmaid's dress. I always love spending time with Erin....we end up laughing like little girls whenever we're together, so it should be a great time full of laughter & catching up with one another. Tomorrow, I'm going to try on my wedding dress, which came in this week. Hopefully there won't be too many alterations that need to be made. haha!

Wow! I feel like I've been writing forever. I'm sure there's still much more to talk about, but I'll make sure to keep you updated (or Scott will). Love you all! :)
