Wedding Shower

This past Sunday, Amanda, Jenny, Sarah and Emily threw me (and Philip) a wonderful wedding shower! They did an amazing job of decorating (especially since our house was still a work-in-progress) planning fun games, food, and decorating a super cute cake (thanks to Sarah). The details they put into were awesome, but not the least bit surprising- they rock! :) All of our friends and family majorly blessed us as well- thanks to everyone!!

What's Going On?!

This will just be a pretty brief update of whats been going on, as I plan to update again soon with pictures :)

Basically: school, starting a new job, planning the wedding and putting together the new house.

School- classes and getting everything prepared for internship in the Spring. This is probably the most stressful of all.

New job- Stretch-N-Grow! The hours are great with everything that's going on right now.. and, I get a little workout in! ;)

Wedding- Oh my. Things are coming along, and actually pretty well, but I guess the little list that I still have is starting to stress me out. 6 weeks people!!! Haha. Its mostly little things that need to be done, although, some can't be done till closer to time. So I'm just working on marking things off my list, and man, it feels great when I do! :)
Wedding planning is definitely fun, and I'm totally enjoying it- I just suggest doing it when you don't have so much on your plate ;)
(Once the wedding happens and I get all the pictures back, I'll document and point out the fun facts of things, more for my benefit I'm sure :)

New house- as Aubrey calls it, the "married house"- because that's where we'll live once we get married, haha. I really like this house, and man, it was a struggle finding a half way decent house in our price range, which wasn't even a bad price! Renting is just outrageous! We were about to sign on one house, when I happened to drive by another and the owner was outside and said I could come in and look. Brought Philip back that night and we turned in an application! For the same price as the other house, this one is sooo much better, and way more convenient! Luckily, everything worked out and we got it! Its been so much fun setting up, but definitely has been taking a toll on the bank account ;) At least I'm a bargain shopper! haha. Still plenty of work to be done, but, its coming along really nicely! Its total killer to be here and then have to go home. Just want to be here already! :)

Plenty of other things have been going on as well.. but, those are whats taking up most of my time :)

Now, just getting waiting for the wedding shower Sunday and the Lingerie/Bachelorette party in October!! whoo-hoo!!! :)

Aubrey needs her own seperate post, the good, the bad, the ugly and the great! We're sometimes on a rollercoaster over here ;) The postive definitely outweighs the negative though. Love that girl!

Alright.. guess that shortly sums up life.
Off to go look at more honeymoon options! (and, no, we haven't picked one out yet! We're all over the map- literally! Good thing we're waiting until end of December to go, ha!)
