A quick update

Hello hello!

Quick life update. It's finals time around here, and I am SWAMPED. So much going on. So much craziness. But it's almost over, and I can not wait for the break.

Our invitations came in! There are ridiculously beautiful. I'm so attached to them, I don't know how I'm going to part with them all on Friday. I can't wait to post about them here--after finals. Kirsten, if you happen to read this--> THANK YOU!!! They're more perfect than we could have ever hoped for.

Tanner and I had a Waco engagement session with the lovely and fabulous Ms. KrisAnn last week, and it was so so much fun. You can read about it on her blog if you like. We love them. :)

I finally finished our wedding website this evening! After some minor crisis type set-backs today, everything has worked out. It's so nice to have that out of the way. Want to check it out?

Of course, you do.

Tomorrow is my Friday!

dear maintenance man

dear school district maintenance man,
You might possibly be an angel. You are most definitely a life saver.
Thanks so much for driving out to the main office to put on some strange girl's spare tire. Because of you, that strange girl's day has been brightened.
I hope there is a raise in your near future, because you deserve it.

dear main office secretary,
Thank you for calling the maintenance man.
Thank you for taking it upon yourself to wait outside with me until my tire was fixed.
Thank you for your knowledge of changing tires, and trying to teach me the basics while we waited for the maintenance man.
Thank you for the hug goodbye.

Today you both reminded me of how wonderful and kind people can be, and that always trying to do things by myself is just silly.

Tanner says the funniest things.
Do you know what statement prefaced yesterdays sweet, romantic moment?
"Baby, thank you for taking care of my knives."
Be jealous. ;]

Hello! Happy weekend!

Tomorrow is engagement session numero uno, and we are so excited!
Tonight we're staying in, getting things together for the morning and watching harry potter. Jealous? ;)

Soooo yeah. I don't really have happy things. I just have one happy thing.

This home.

It makes me giddy.

weekend adventures

This weekend we took a little trip to the bustling town of Belton, TX, for dinner and some "study time" with miss Sharon Marie. As fate would have it, Sharon locked herself out of her house without her car keys, and we were left to fend for ourselves while she sorted things out. Fortunately, Belton as a river--and ducks--which provided us with much entertainment. It was a pretty lovely Sunday. :)

etsy love

I love etsy--looovvvveeee. I can spend hours upon hours browsing, making wish lists, decorating and redecorating my future house....It is my most favorite time suck. :]

Since I can't possibly purchase all the things I'm regularly lusting after, I've decided sharing them here would be the perfect way to keep a record of what I love. And perhaps you'll buy something and I can live vicariously through you?

So, without further adieu.

Don't be surprised if you receive this as a gift one day.

These themed aprons would be a perfect addition to my collection!

LOVE this painting.

All kinds of cute.

I already have a place set aside in our future house.

The most amazing storage container I've ever seen. Ever.

I will own these magnets.

Hope you all had a most amazing weekend! I miss it already.
