My mom and Aunt Donna

My Aunt Donna came back to visit for the weekend!! Auntie D was like a second mother to me during my formative late elementary and middle school years. She has always been there to lend an ear and offer up heaps of good advice. =)

DSC_2153My husband is such a dream boat DSC_2149Da boys DSC_2152Love this candid photo of my brother John DSC_2151We call ourselves Flannel Cubed (not really, but I think it would make a splendid band name!)

We went to a ton of breweries, local restaurants, and even our local wineries. What can I say? Food is love in this family! Either way, it was great to have her come to visit after the wedding, since Mitch & I felt like we missed out on spending time with everyone on that crazed wedding weekend!

Awkward & Awesome Thursday

fairy taleAwkward:
-Our lack of honeymoon… I know, I’m being spoiled, but I really would have loved to have some time to just enjoy us and be newlyweds. BACK TO WORK WITH US! Ugh…
-Changing your last name is harder than it looks and the Social Security office works really odd hours (re: 8AM to 3:30PM… I work an hour away).
-No photos of the entire family. I got zero photos with Mitch’s mom and dad. Kinda disappointing.

Awesome:
-I MARRIED MY BESTEST BEST FRIEND MITCHEL!!!
-Beautiful preview photo (see above) that our photographer shared with us. I love it. Can’t wait to see the other beauties.
-Baby cuddles with my nephew Blakey. He is always such an angel when we’re around. He saves the bad moods for his momma! ;)
-Staying in our pjs ALL WEEKEND last weekend. We really needed the down time after all the wedding stresses…
-One Girl Conference with my church! Can’t wait to get started making some lip gloss with teen girls and working on the Sole Hope project!

Our Wedding

Hello, Readers!

Sorry for my month-long hiatus. Life has been going at the speed of light and I haven’t been able to keep it in check lately. In the month of August, I started my new job as technical writer/subject matter expert with a new company, my nephew Blake was born, we moved (TWICE!!), and wedding planning was in full swing.

On September 7th, I married my best friend Mitchel. It was a lovely ceremony, everything was so simple and beautiful. It didn’t all work out the way I wanted it to, but no regrets! Mitch & I got to spend a lot of time together on our wedding day and that made everything that much sweeter. Here are some photos of our big day… we only have photos from family & friends so far, but I’ll be sure to share more later on…

We had so many friends and family members that traveled from far distances to be there for us on our wedding day. Extra props to my mom Amy {one of the maid of honors & the wedding planner(!)}, my brother Johnny, Phil {my bestie Shelly’s fiance}, and Katie {Blake’s mommy} for saving the day in so many ways. Also, to my incredible bridesmaids & Mitch’s groomsmen, you all kept us sane and kept us laughing all day long. I had the best day with all of the loves of my life.

Life goes by so fast, it’s so hard to stop and enjoy the little moments. Right now I am enjoying my new role as wife with my handsome and amazing husband. Everything is changing, but I am ready to meet all of life’s challenges head on, so long as I have Mitchel by my side.

Things I’m Loving Right Now

my last monthThe things I’m loving right now? The amazing past month I’ve had! I met Matt Smith, Boomer (the Pacers mascot), and Meryl Streep. =) I know it seems silly, but we’re really having an amazing 2014… I can’t believe I not only get to marry my BEST friend this year, I also met some heroes of mine & enjoyed many, many adventures. =) 2014, you’ve been so good to me.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

touch it foreverBwuahaha… what do you say, Mitchel? ;) I love you, boobahluh! =)

Engaged!!

Nutcracker happy happy engaged!So, blog family, I don’t know how else to break the news to everyone, but Mitch & I are engaged [since 12/7/13]!! We’re going to get married and have kids and live happily ever after.

Okay, let’s be honest, I’ll probably drive him absolutely bonkers, BUT he’s stuck with me!

We haven’t set a date, though we’re thinking September 2014! It was a romantic night at the ballet watching The Nutcracker and then home for hot tea and Bible reading. After which, he asked me to marry him. AND I SAID YES!?!

We have been together since September of 2011 and I’ve never been happier in my life. Mitch is my best friend, my confidante, and my support system. I can’t wait to begin our life together as old married folks!

Photobooth

photobooth loveAhhh, nothing like a little photoboothing to make ya feel young again. Mitch & I have about a half dozen of these lying around the house from our adventures. This was just a random one, nothing special… just a Saturday spent together. =) Those are my favorites.
