Changes are a coming!

Ok, so you all know I'm getting married... right? Well here's some new news:  BL got a job in North Carolina!!!

lhasa apso puppy cutBL's new position starts soon, and he'll be moving right away. Then after the wedding in October I'll join him there. I've been telling Brody, "We're moving to North Carolina! Are you excited?" haha, he twists his head and seems confused every time, but I think he's going to love it there.
Wedding planning is getting more interesting with BL being further away, but I think we'll manage it all. With family and friends to help- everything will get done. Moving my furniture there will also be tricky, but I guess it's all just part of it. My mom and cousin were in Nashville this weekend for my first Bridal Shower, and they helped me sort through things in my apartment. I gave them a lot, and mom boxed up a bunch of things to take to Goodwill.

Here are some of the things on my wedding to-do list for the week:
  • call the Pastor to talk about the order of the ceremony
  • figure out ceremony music
  • order jewelry for wedding day
  • find another swimsuit for the honeymoon
  • Print mailing labels and return address labels
  • Stick the labels on invites
  • Mail the invites
  • Work on homework for pre-marital counseling
Here's what else is on my to-do list this week:
  • eat healthy
  • work-out
  • sleep a lot

What I wore for engagement photos

I had a really hard time deciding what to wear for our pictures a couple of weeks ago. While I've been slowly losing weight, I'm still not comfortable with how I look in clothes. It was tough trying to decide what would flatter and fit the best.
The day we took pictures was a hot one- over 100 degrees! so that made some of the choice for us. No jeans or long pants for BL. I did wear jeans AND cardigans.  I felt a little crazy sweating in my outfits, but it was worth it. As Stacy and Clinton say, cardigans and jackets are the best at hiding... well, things you don't want to show.

Engagement Photos

We chose Ginger Snaps for our wedding photographer, a company based in Lexington, KY.  A couple of weeks ago we got the chance to take our engagement photos with Krystal. She was so fun to work with, and I'm so excited for the wedding photos!

Here are some of my favorites:

Wedding Shoes!

This is my latest choice for wedding shoes. I found them at Zappos outlet for $30. Not bad, considering they are over $60 online. I'm not saying for sure if I'll wear these or not, I still have time to change my mind. But... they are the perfect color blue, and they're not too tall.
