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.

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!

The Great Outdoors

hike 1 hike 2We took Franklin on quite a lovely hike through the woods two weekends ago. The weather this spring has been touch-and-go, but we found a lovely day, just windy enough, to go hiking in the wilderness of Bloomington! It was an hour and a half of heavenly, earthy bliss!! =)

Mitch & I had a spectacular date night last night! I wore my pretty floral dress with my big belt and purple tights. I felt like such a cutesie lady! We went to Domo [a hibachi grill] to get some steak/iron in me, anemia be damned! =) We were the only people at our table, which made it extra fun. We made friends with the cook & had a really great time. The date ended with reading some Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire while cuddled up in our pajamas! Perfect date night.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE LOVE OF MY LIFE

DSC_1868Happy Birthday to my Mitchel! He turns 29 years old today… so close to the big 3-0!!!! =) I am so blessed to have him in my life. He is an incredibly intelligent, incredibly driven man and he makes everything in my life better. Couldn’t do it without you, love. Here’s to another year older and hopefully another year wiser. ;)

Awkward & Awesome Thursday

Awkward:
-How long it’s been since we’ve washed our bedsheets! Icky! We’ve gotta make a big run to the laundromat this week!
-Franklin being exceptionally smelly the other day! Boston terrier farts are the worst.

Awesome:
-Sleeping owls. Aren’t they adorbs?!
-Watching The Walking Dead season 2 on Netflix! It’s sickeningly well-written and acted!
-Crocheting! My bobble blanket is coming along soooo nicely. I’m actually quite proud of it!
-Finishing ‘Life of Pi’ the novel with Mitchel! We read aloud to each other every night… it’s super romantic! And now we start on the Harry Potter series, since he’s never read it before!!
