Whats New??

Hello there, it's great to be back into the blogging world! After my wedding, life has finally started to slow down and I feel like this is a wonderful time to get back into blogging.

Currently I am wrapping up my bachelors degree and will be graduating next week! Which has me looking for jobs and applying like crazy!

Brad and I bought our first home over the past few months. I'm still working on a few home projects. Projects to come in later posts!

My BFF came to help us move!

Just like the rest of you I'm gearing up for Christmas and counting down the days! This will be our first Christmas married and in our new home! We are super excited.

Blogging is such a creative outlet for me. I look forward to getting back into the grove of things sharing with you our life journeys, recipes as I am creating a cookbook, couponing tricks and tips, and all that my life has to offer.

I hope you all enjoy!

Hint of fall!

Fall is my FAVORITE season!!! Begining in August I seriously count down the days until the end of September when actual fall begins. Getting out my fall decor and hanging my fall wreath on the door is huge for me! It has been so tempting lately because of our fall-like weather. This morning was such a cool and crisp morning I got this inner excitment about the fall season. I love the carmel apples, fall festivals, high school football nights, the colors of the tress changing, apple cider, big pots of soup, apple cinnamon scents, pumpkin spiced lattes and the open windows of my house.
This is going to be the best fall because B and I are moving into our new house next weekend! I can't wait to hang my wreath! I hope you all are getting some cool weather :)

This week has been a week of adjustments!

School started Monday and it has been WAY better that I thought it was going to be. Now, ask me how school is going 2 weeks from now and I might have a whole different answer! All my classes are on the web except 1 so I'm still a little confused on what's due when and how to turn it in but other than that it's good!

My internship at the Extension Office is AMAZING. Honestly, a dream come true. I now know with out a doubt this is what I want to do the rest of my life! The lady I am interning is AWESOME. She is so sweet and knowledgeable. I have learned so much in just 1 week. We have 2 huge events coming up and I'll post about those at a later time.

The house is supposed to be done today. Last night when Husby and I went out to see it and everything was pretty much done except it needed to be cleaned. It's dusty and left over material is still sitting around everywhere. The appraisal will be done tomorrow and once that is returned we will be issued a closing date.

Life is good ya'll!

OUR HOUSE WILL BE DONE!!!!!!!!!! If you can't tell I'm soooo excited. I talked with our banker today and we aren't going to be able to close on the house until the middle of September because of how busy the lenders are with refinances. WTH!!! That's no excuse ha!
I can't wait to be in our new home :) NOTHING makes me more excited. We are going furniture shopping this weekend. Here are a few things I have in mind...

TV Chest

The Bed

I start an amazing internship on Friday so today I did some shopping to spice up my 'professional' wardrobe! When I got home I got all my outfits picked out for 2 WEEKS!!! Accessories, shoes, and everything! They are all hung up in order in my closet. Talk about obsessive haha

Our first home!

B and I have been in the process of buying our first home since July. This has been such an exciting experience but I am SOO ready to close on the house! It is a new home and it's still under construction. It should be completely ready by the 1st week of September. We are keeping out fingers crossed. It would be awesome to move in over Labor day weekend. B and I were able to pick out EVERYTHING for our new house. We put in an offer at the beginning stages of the house so besides the floor plan we got a say in everything. We loved the floor plan so everything just worked out perfectly! Here are a few pictures....

I'm a decorating fool so I can't wait to get my hands in there :)
Hope you all are enjoying your week!

The Final Days

I'm sure all you brides can sympathize with me and how FREAKING busy I am. I can never seem to cross everything off my "to-do" list. I have to admit that I LOVE it! This has been the best and most exciting time of my life. So with only 3 weeks left until the big I have create a last minute "to-do" list. I know I know... I have a slight obsession with lists! Any who...
1. Marriage Certificate
2. Gift for flower girl
3. Socks to put with groomsmen gifts
4. Print and fold programs, We have completed a practice one and I love them. They are very simple but very classy.
5. And I need to buy 2 baskets; 1 for the programs and 1 for cards at the gift table.
With just 2 meltdowns everything is coming together.
I'm so so so excited for the honeymoon. Today I ordered this bathing suit

And this

And now I'm officially DONE! I don't need ANYTHING else to take on the honeymoon except out toiletries. As far as clothing goes I have got everything I need!!! So PUMPED

Wedding Adventures thus far

Less than 2 months to go and everything is coming together so smoothly! Over the weekend we finished all the centerpieces, which I must admit are freaking ADORABLE. We also finished all the bridesmaids bouquets and boutonnieres. Get me and my girls together and good things happen!!! (pictures soon to come)

Sunday I'm meeting with an extended family member who is so graciously letting us borrow her table cloths. Once I get those bleached and pressed the reception hall is done besides a few odd and end things.

Up to this point we have had two wedding showers which have went awesome! (pictures to come) We are so blessed to have family and friends who go above and beyond for us!

This weekend is one of my best friends bachelorette parties. We have some amazingly fun plans. I CAN'T WAIT!

Also, I have made a final decision on my hairstyle:

Thursday, April 29, 2010


I have searched and searched for the perfect hairstyle for the wedding. Here is what I came up with...

I love the way these look in the front but I'm not sure what is going on in the back. I think I like Jessica's better. But...

I also like how this looks in the back

And I like these
Ahh..... I don't know what to do!!!!!!!
I know I'm going to need clip-in extensions.
The wedding is in July so I KNOW I want my hair off my neck. It's going to be SOOO friggin hott.
