ONE MORE DAY!!!!'s been FOREVER since I have posted anything. I still haven't posted pics of the shower- I have been crazy busy lately. After everything gets back to normal I will have to update everything! But for now..............................
Only ONE MORE DAY until the wedding!! We are getting so excited and kinda nervous. I am hoping and praying that everything goes as planned. It's been a long journey....almost 7 years we have been dating.....Gosh!-that's a long time! I can't wait to marry Ty- he is my best friend and love him more than he will ever know. .....okay now I am tearing up! Gotta go :'0)

Can't wait to see you at the wedding!

Ty's mom is coming over later to drop off our tickets to VEGAS!!! I have never been in an airplane before so I'm starting to get a little nervous...

We are staying at the Venetian Hotel for four nights. The thing I'm most excited about is going to the Grand Canyon. We are taking a tour there one day and we'll also be going to the famous Grand Canyon Skywalk! You know....the glass bridge? I am so excited about this.....Ty on the other hand is not so excited. He thinks that 4000 feet + glass=DANGEROUS!
Here's the site if your interested:
I also really want to go see Cirque Du Soleil one night but I think the tickets are kind of hard to get.
After all this wedding planning we're going to need a little R and R......I can't wait!

I despise the Telemarketer!!!!

Okay......The best thing someone ever did was create the "DO NOT CALL LIST" to avoid these people. They call you (or used to) at 8:00 at night when you are trying to just chill out and have some peace. Well, I called the 1-800 number a long time ago and haven't heard from em' in quite a while.
But don't think that they didn't find another way to contact me! Oh no!.....about a month or so ago I started getting Telemarketer faxes through the fax machine. Which is almost worse than them calling on the phone. It wastes paper and INK! I get TONS of them- at least one per day, if not more. There are about 3 different ones: There is a vacation one, one about an energy drink or pill or something, and one about insurance.
I mean come on......who is going to call an 800 number advertising a 4 day cruise for $99/person????? Someone with no sense maybe.
Well, there happened to be a number at the bottom to remove your fax number...................... It DID NOT WORK! Can you believe that!!? I mean, the number was valid and I punched in my fax number and it said "Your number has successfully been removed." Ya right...for about a day!
I tried turning my printer/fax off for a while. Doesn't work.
Then I tried the "Do Not Call" list thing and was going to enter the fax number. Doesn't work either.

Ugh. I'm stuck with them I guess.

Sorry this was so long but I needed to vent my frustrations.

Going to the chapel.....

This is the little chapel that I just fell in love with. I can't believe we will soon be husband and wife (only 3 weeks!) It's been such a long journey. We have been dating since I was 17 and I'm 24 now......7 years! I can't believe that I'm writing it - it really seems like forever. We were so young then! I know, I know...those of you reading this are probably saying "You are still young! " And ya, we are. But back then was a whole different kind of young! Anyway..............I can't wait to open this new chapter in our lives :o)
Here is the chapel at night. And it's filled with candles....there is no electricity out the chapel I mean. This is the photographer who is doing our pictures. I found this on his website a while back. I think it is just beautiful!
Question: See the wreath thing that's above the chapel? I really don't like it, but I don't know what else we'd use up there. The picture at the top doesn't have anything. Does that look too plain?
Also, see the pillars on the sides. ...with the arrangements? What if that wasn't there either? I don't want it to look like we didn't decorate, but at the same time I love how simple it is without any thing.
I would love your suggestions!

I'll be checking the mail....

Well, I sent my invites for the wedding out about a week ago. The RSVP's aren't due for about another week but I've received several already. It's so exciting!!! I can't wait to check the mail everyday and see if I have any responses.
Only 25 more days!!!!!!!!!!!!!(I think that's what the countdown thing says...) I think I have just about everything done. I met with the florist today to finalize everything....I've changed my mind only about 100 times! I still need to talk to Sara about the cakes....mine will be white with pink and brown ribbon along the bottom and Ty's will be a camo/hunting theme. I found a cute one on Cake Central. And I think that's about it :o)
It's been fun planning everything but I'll be soooooo glad when it's over. It can be very stressful!
Let's just say I am counting down the days until the HONEYMOON!!

Lots of PiNk!

I found these absolutely adorable clothes at The Childrens Place and the best part is.......I got them both for under $10!!!! They are having a HUGE summer sale. Of course, they are for Addie. She is gonna be soooooo spoiled!

This one is my fave......and since Addison has lots of hair I thought it fit her just perfect!

Old desk

My mom bought this old desk at the flea market in Jewett and painted it bright red. The top part that's black is chalkboard paint. I can't wait to find a spot for it in my classroom!


Nope- It's all stuff for my classroom. I've been collecting other people's junk for a while now and lets just say....I'm outta room! This is one of our guest bedrooms and as you can see-it's FULL! If you haven't heard..................I GOT A JOB! As a kindergarten teacher in Willis at Cannan Elementary :o) I am super excited and relieved as well. There for a while I started to get worried that I'd never find a job. But God answered my MANY prayers and now here I am......waiting to move all this stuff out of my house and put it to use!
Oh yeah....If you gave me some of your "junk"....ThAnKs! I'm sure I'll use it come August!

She is precious....

Ty's brother and his wife Mandy just had a beautiful baby girl on June 24th at 2:45 AM. She weighed 6lbs 10oz and was 19 inches long. Her name is Addison Grace but we will call her Addie. I think we were just as excited as they were.
This is Ty holding Addie just about an hour after she was born. He was so amazed at how one minute she was in the womb and the next....VOILA! She is so perfect! God is pretty amazing!!

We couldn't wait to get to the hospital the next morning! She wasn't so bundled up so it's a little easier to see her. And yes....Ty is STILL in amazement!! .......I think that might mean something!

Isn't this the cutest thing you've ever seen???!

Wednesday, July 2, 2008 I am! Life is getting busy and it's just so hard to keep in touch with everyone. I am trying to get my sister in law to create a blog so I can see pics of her beautiful baby girl!! I'll be posting lots of wedding stuff...........stay tuned!!
