Some Bling for My Man!

So a few weeks ago I stopped in at a local jeweler that I'd heard about from my brother and his wife. Back in March/April they had bought their rings from Max Richardson Jewelry and raved about them, their service and their prices. My goal in stopping in was to see if they carried a ring similar to the one Charles found on superiorweddingrings.com a few months ago. If you remember, back in June I posted about the ring he found on their site.

The problem...now that I don't have a job, it was a little pricey. However I wanted him to have exactly what he wanted. He did after all, get me what I wanted! So in I went not expecting much. Low and behold, they were able to order the EXACT same ring for me! And it was nearly $100 cheaper, Praise the Lord! I ordered it right then and there and it was in the next morning. Charles and I went to look at it and he absolutely loved it! End of story. Now I have Charles' ring taken care of!

So what do you think? I know you're all still waiting to see our engagement pictures and believe me, I am dying to show them to you! Hopefully I can get to some wi-fi on Tuesday or Wednesday so I can share them with you. I also have a lot more to share with you....projects I've been working on, a fabulous and simple punch recipe, and so much more so keep checking back!

I feel so guilty that I can't keep up with all of your blogs anymore. I miss knowing how your planning is going and how your weddings went and seeing all the beautiful pictures. But with my dial-up it is nearly impossible to. :( Maybe soon I'll be able to catch up somehow. Until then know I'm thinking about you all! <3

Fast Forward


Oh how I wish I could fast forward time! Even though the months seem to be flying by, it seems like we are still as far away from the big day as ever. I can't really explain it because it doesn't really make a whole lot of sense. However, to me, it seems as though we are still over a year away from the wedding. When in fact, we are only nearly 7 months away! But those 7 months just seem so out of reach. It feels like every month that goes by is yet another to be added to the countdown. I realize none of this makes the least big of sense! It just seems like our big day is never going to get here! But at the same time, I know it will be here before we know it.

Maybe I feel this way because I have so much wedding related projects completed or nearly completed already. The invitations have all already been printed, assembled and the inner envelopes have already been filled out. The centerpieces are completed. The signage for the wedding is ready to go. I already have my dress and all my accessories. And I could go on and on. It's crazy how much ahead of schedule I am! But with no job and all this time on my hands I figured why not work on these projects? I might as well get them out of the way now while I have the time instead of waiting until closer to the wedding when I might not have as much time on my hands.

Are any of you other brides out there feeling this way as well? Or am I just crazy? haha

Yesterday Charles and I were finally able to get our engagement pictures taken!! After being engaged for nearly 5 months...but better late than never I suppose. The Lord blessed us with an oh so beautiful day! The temperature was perfect and rain wasn't in the forecast....that makes for a happy couple....and photographers! :)

We had a BLAST and were completely worn out by the end of the session. We saw several bears, deer and lots of really fat squirrels (none made it into the pics though). We stood in fields with weeds 7 feet tall, put up with gnats, fed some horses, kissed a lot and laughed a lot! Wes & Danielle (our photographers) were so much fun and kept us laughing the whole time! We can hardly to wait to see the results but hopefully we'll get the pictures by the end of this week or the beginning of next week. So stay tuned!
