Mrs. Chiquita and Mr. Dole

For the past few days I have been packing, trying to get as much as I can ready for this weekend! The funny part is that I am packing all my precious belongings into boxes that once contained the one thing in this world that I loathe....BANANAS! yuck, I hope my stuff does not come out smelling like them.

Tomorrow begins the weekend move- which is much anticipated since my parents house right now looks quite cluttered and out of control! And to all those that will be helping here is a big THANK YOU in advance.

One Month

One month.

Yesterday morning we met w/ Hammy to go over the ceremony details, and it just hit me how incredibly real this is all becoming...

One month.

The idea of this wedding has been ingrained in our minds for a while, but now it is so close that it will soon illuminate all senses!

One month...

Rehearsal = One Month

All right all you faithful readers- can you believe it! One month today we will be rehearsing for our wedding. Seriously it is mind blowing. Even amongst all this planning it still doesn't seem real. I even started packing a few things yesterday from the kitchen and it just feels like I am going back to college rather than packing for my new home! Wow- how fast life changes, but how exciting this new route will be!

A winter wonderland wedding

So I am finally coming to grips that it is going to be full blown winter wonderland wedding. I had hoped in the far way back of my mind that there would be little to no snow- seeing that this past March there was no snow....but as our winter season progresses that thought is quickly fleeting. Oh well! If there shall be snow than it shall be the BEST winter wedding this state has ever seen!

valentines day tragedy

Seeing that Valentines Day this year was on a Sunday- Josh and I had decided that we would go out for breakfast before church for our v-day date. We dined at the lovely Panera eating scrumptious bacon, egg and cheese sandwiches along with an apple pastry and orange juice. Once we had gotten our food we were trying to find a good place to sit- we were about to sit down at a table by the window when Josh noticed a tragedy just outside. There on the ground was a little dead robin on Valentines Day. We decided that this poor soul died of a broken heart, on Valentines Day!!!- oh once we briefly mourned for our little friend, we found a new table and enjoyed our breakfast along with a little kings in the corner action! We both thoroughly enjoyed our first Valentines Day using the word "LOVE" :)

Our "Divining" Room

Josh and I have been so blessed to have so many people donating furniture to our future cause called marriage! So far we have a TV hutch, night stands, a love seat, multiple chairs, a coffee table, and a kitchen table.

The kitchen table is currently in my parents living room- as it was the only place we could store it until we move into our new place. Josh and I had our first meal at our table the other night by candle light! haha- it was quite enjoyable.

So a big BIG thank you to all those that have been generous in helping us have places to sit and store. You all are greatly appreciated!

(Divining Room = a combination of a living room and dining room)

the chain is getting shorter

I have officially moved my countdown chain to my room because it fits! It is hard to believe that it has almost been a year since we got engaged. Planning is still going strong and now we are hammering out the details. You never think when you are attending weddings how everything you see, hear, eat, or smell- that there was a decision or many decisions to have that set in place.
