I met with my wedding photographer today!!! I'm SO EXCITED!!! She's wonderful! She goes to my church and has know Jeff since was a little boy- so she gave us a great discount. But what I am most excited about is how creative, artsy and fun she is! These pictures are going to be great! and very professional! I can't wait to blog some pictures- but, alas, that is months away. So here's a link to her site so you can get an idea of her style!

Hall Retreat!!!

So I'm procrastinating on studying for a midterm, and praying for a snow day so that i don't have to study at all- therefore, I blog!
This weekend i took most of my hall [I'm a Resident Assistant (RA) at Corban in my dorm. I love being an RA here, we get to be such an important part of our peers lives! I get to put together weekly Bible studies, solve roommate issues, deliver toilet paper etc] back home with me for a short hall retreat. We headed home after the basketball game Friday, and watched movies until 2am. And of course the girls were too excited to have fun so they all woke up at 9am {not enough sleep...poor me ;) } We had waffles and a short Bible study from Mesha, then we went on a long hike round the property with the goats. After lunch we all pretty much crashed or did homework with a movie playing in the back ground. It was super chill-we all needed the relaxation. Mom made spaghetti and Red Lobster biscuits [soooooo good!] for dinner and we roasted s'mores over the wood stove. Mom lead a Bible study on loving God with no reservations. More movies, more candy, more giggles. We also had a dance party in the garage- i taped down flat canvases and we dipped our feet in paint and partied! :) I had the girls wash each others feet when we were done. We went to my home church Sunday, had some Subway and Starbucks for lunch then i sent them all back to Corban. It was an amazing weekend.

But Nikki (my roommate) and I didn't stop there! Our boy's families rented a house at the beach and invited us for the three day weekend, so we drove over to the coast and surprised them! :) It was wonderful to get my feet in the sand again! Unfortunately, the ocean ate my camera :( I don't know what i'm going to do with out it! i love taking pictures! It's an important part of my enjoyment in everyday! Yet, this was the only sad thing that happened this weekend-so it was still an absolutely fantastic 3 day break from classes!

here are some of the last pictures my poor camera ever took...

150 more days

When Jeff and I met with Professor Trammell, who, along with his wife-the lovely Linda- will be leading us through a pre-marital course through the Song of Songs, (We are both really excited about it.)
 he gave us an idea  to use the book of Psalms as a count down- there are 150 chapters in Psalms, there are 150 more days until we get married- so here's Psalms 150 for today!

A Psalm of Praise.
     1     Praise the Lord!
Praise God in His sanctuary;
Praise Him in His mighty expanse.
     2     Praise Him for His mighty deeds;
Praise Him according to His excellent greatness.
     3     Praise Him with trumpet sound;
Praise Him with harp and lyre.
     4     Praise Him with timbrel and dancing;
Praise Him with stringed instruments and pipe.
     5     Praise Him with loud cymbals;
Praise Him with resounding cymbals.
     6     Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise 1the Lord!

10 Random Facts About Me

1.) I love my bright yellow Ticondaroga pencils. For whatever reason they make me so happy. Maybe its their bright yellow ora, or maybe the beautiful lines they make newly sharpened, or maybe the precious way they sit in their little green jam jar on my desk.
2.) I love listening to my ipod (via speakers of course) and singing country music in the shower.
3.) "You have an amazing 'shut up I'm trying to sleep' glare. You never remember but you swing your legs outta bed..pretty much everything but actually getting out of bed." -Casey Thomas, roommate 2009-10
4.) i love coffee- white chocolate peppermint mocha made with soy and some whip cream on top.
5.) I'm organized, i go insane if things aren't a certain way (which they usually aren't-I'm too busy). I hang most of my clothes in sleeve length and color order and i can't concentrate on homework in my room if its a mess.
6.) I currently have an obsession with bird-silhouettes in decorating and stuff. Thus-bird theme at the wedding. On the invites, bird figurines on the tables and i'm sure I'll think of some other things.
7.) I'm addicted to
8.) I love hurdling in track. And i have a really good day when i get to wear my spikes and use starting blocks.
9.)If I was a character in a book, i would be Elisabeth Bennett from Pride and Prejudice (my favorite book and movie).
10.) The last movie i watched was The Proposal (2 days ago) because i'm obsessed with love.

Beautiful Maids

Saturday I took all seven (yes 7) (plus a my junior Bridesmaid sister) to David's Bridal to find dresses. I had a blast! and i think they did too :) And you should be impressed-8 girls dressed, 1 bride's mind finally made up, and 7 dresses ordered in-drum roll please- one hour and fifteen minutes! i couldn't believe it! Don't they look so pretty? and don't worry, the ordered dresses are all purple- not this crazy rainbow. :) We've got my three sisters and MOH in the strapless and my four lovely friends in the other. I can't wait to see them all in their 'regency' purple dresses! Now if i could only decide on some shoes...

Half Way There

172 days left! That's a little over half of our engagement over! Let's see, what have we done so far?
-my dress-mom's dress-cup cakes- catering-ceremony/reception site-DJ-Special music-new grass for the lawn-photographer...and other things i can't think of off the top of my head.
Now what's left? Flowers-tuxes-transportation-honeymoon reservations- lots of little artsy things...and more I can't think of :)

It's crazy how much goes in to planning a wedding! I thank God for my lovely roommate/bff/maid of honor, Nikki, who is always able to keep my head on straight and listen to all my crazy ideas-and put them in proper perspective of course. I don't know what I would do without her!

In other news: Jeff and I are going to go check out an apartment this weekend! There is so much excitement about this place i can't even explain it! So I won't and I leave all the wonderful little details for later, if the Lord blesses us with this opportunity.
Also this weekend, all 7 of my bridesmaids and some moms are going dress shopping!!! Lot's of girls crazy giggly girls in David's Bridal! I hope they are ready for us!
It's going to be a wonderful weekend!
