Today has been a good day! I know it was a short week for most people, but it still seemed forever to me. Christian and I ran to the mall tonight after work, so I could try to find some cute new summer clothes. I had a pretty successful shopping trip. I got three new sundress and three new shirts from Forever 21. I also ran to target today during lunch and found a cute shirt and pair of gold sandals that I love! I plan on wearing some of it this weekend and I'll point them out in pictures! I love getting new clothes, always puts a smile on my face! Well I'm am pooped and about to get in bed and watch TV. Christian has to work for a few hours in the morning, so I plan on getting up early to clean the house and go the gym while he is working. Unless Buddy and I just decide to stay in bed and cuddle! Have a wonderful weekend!

Rain, Rain Go Away...

I don't know about where you guys live, but it has been raining so much lately here in NC. I am just so tired of seeing rain everyday. I'm grateful for the rain and we aren't in a drought, but I need some sunshine in my life! I did look at the weather for the weekend and it is suppose to be sunny! I am keeping my fingers crossed and we might even get to take our new boat out! Today has been just a normal Thursday. It has been raining all afternoon and evening, so we are being lazy! Neither one of us were in the mood to cook dinner, so we out to dinner at Chili's and it was so yummy! I love Chili's but Christian never wants to go there, so I always jump on it when he agrees to it.

So last weekend I was in my friend Amanda's weekend and I thought I would share part of the gift she gave her bridesmaids! Here is the gift wrapped...I thought it was so cute and it was the colors of the wedding! The wrapping paper also matched the gift that was inside.

Amanda gave us a bag with our initials on it and I think it is just adorable. I might just love b/c I am addicted to bags. I have so many bags that I could probably open up a store. It will be nice to take on vacation this summer. She said it is really a diaper bag but she just couldn't pass it up. I guess that means I will just have to name my kid with a name that starts with a "C". That would be cute since Christian and I or both "C" and "C". I so can't wait to have babies...can you tell? My sister is 11 years older than me and she can't wait for the day I tell her I am pregnant. She is dying for a niece or nephew. She has two sons and they need some cousins. We tell her just to let us get married first, which isn't that far way!!!

Since I am talking about how much I love bags...I thought I would share with you this cute little Bride bag I bought myself. It doesn't look like it in this picture but it is a real dark chocolate brown and it is oh so cute! I use it to keep my wedding planner and all the other wedding stuff in. I also thought it would be cute to carry to any appointments for the wedding. Any reason to buy a cute bag, I am on it!
Oh yeah Christian and I have started back at the gym this weekend and I need all the motivation I can get. I mainly walk on the treadmill and plug my headphones in to watch HGTV but hey it is better than sitting at home on the couch doing nothing. We were going pretty regularly there for awhile and I was losing weight, but then we stopped. What works for you guys?

Just One Of Those Days...

Today has just been one of those days for me. I woke up this morning not feeling too well with a runny nose and sore throat. After dragging myself out of bed and getting to work the day just dragged on and on. On top of not feeling well I was really tired and kind of grumpy and I was super busy at work today. So needless to say I was beyond ready for 5pm! After work I came home and picked up the house a little while Christian made dinner for me. He made Alfredo with broccoli and it was so yummy! And after dinner he even put up my curtain in the my dinning/ eating area. I love him so much. I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful fiance. He does a very good job of spoiling me. Thank you Christian :)

Here is a picture of Buddy on the boat yesterday. We were so proud of him for getting in the water yesterday b/c he has never liked the water. I know he is a lab and they are supposed to LOVE water...well not this lab. We have tried for three years to get him to swim and he would have nothing to with it. Although yesterday he jumped right in the lake and did so good. I felt like a mom that just saw her baby take their first! We were all clapping and saying "Good Boy"...Sad I know...
Here is Buddy and I waiting on Daddy in the car. I forgot Buddy's treats at the house, so of course we had to stop at the store on our way to the lake to get some for him. I couldn't get him to look at the camera b/c he would not take his eyes off the door that Christian went in to. Whenever one of us gets out of the car Buddy cries the entire time. It is kind of funny b/c here sits this huge dog but crying like a little baby. But what can I say I love him!

Happy Memorial Day

I hope everyone has had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! We have had a nice weekend, minus the rain. I don't know about anyone else, but I am so tired of seeing the rain. We started the weekend off by going to my friend Amandas wedding rehersal and dinner. Unfortanely I did not really get any picutres. I was so tired Friday night I think I was at home and asleep my 10! Saturday was the wedding, which was just beautiful! It was fun to have a girls day of getting our hair done and dressing up. I also did not get any pictures of the wedding since I was in it. I gave Christian the camera to take some pictures but he didn't. Guys they just don't understand the need to have pictures.
We spent some time at home this weekend hanging out with this cute little boy in the picture above! I just love this dog so much. Today we went out on the boat with my parents and Buddy! He had so much fun and now he is exhuasted. I have a few pictures from the lake today but I have not uploaded them yet. I will post them tomorrow. After the lake we went to Outback for a fast dinner and now we are being lazy and getting ready for bed!

Here is one picture that we managed to take of ourselves at the reception on Saturday! It is not the greatest picture ever, but it is still fun to have the memories to look at!

Busy Couple of Days

We have had a busy past two days. Wednesday after work I ran to the store to get something to make for dinner. I copied Kelly and made the chicken she made this week. It turned out yummy and it was simple. I've never been a big cook, but I never had a reason to until now. Since Christian and I are getting married in October I want to be able to cook for him and be the good wife :) So any recipes are welcome! After dinner Christian put up the new curtains for our master bedroom. I will be posting pictures soon, but right now I am still working on the room. I hate that I have to miss out on Kelly's Korner "Show Us Where You Live", I'll just do one big post of everything later! During the process of hanging the curtains, of course we were watching American Idol. Let me just say I am so excited about Kris winning! I was so excited I about jumped out of the bed! I plan on buying his album, can't wait!

So this cute little furry boy in the picture is the reason I am so tired today. Buddy does not think he is a dog but a human! Last night he cried all night wanting to get in the bed, but he is just to big! This is one spoiled dog, as if you couldn't by the picture above. I allow him to get in the bed with me in the mornings after Christian gets up and while I get ready for work. He lays on the bed and watches me get ready every morning. Although this becoming a problem b/c he thinks he needs to get in the bed when it is time to go to sleep too. He has a huge and very nice doggie bed to sleep on, so he is deprived.

Today after I work I went and got a pedicure and my eyebrows waxed. My friend Amanda is getting married on Saturday and I'm in the wedding, so I figured I'd treat myself! I just love getting pedicures, but I don't go that often. Usually only when we are going on vacation, wedding, or a special occasion. Christian will give me gift certificates every holiday and I'll put them away until summer!

After my pedicure I met Christian at a lake near our house to take out the boat for the first time! He was just like a little kid and he was so excited! We were only out there for like 45 minutes (if that). We plan on taking it out this weekend if they weather is nice! We are looking forward to a three day weekend!
Finally, Thank Goodness Tomorrow is Friday! I'm only working a 1/2 day, b/c I have to go to Amanda's wedding rehearsal and dinner. I can't wait to relax on Sunday and Monday!

Go Kris Allen!

Today has just been a normal Tuesday. I went to work and the highlight of my day was meeting Christian for lunch! We only work about 10 minutes from each other, so it is nice that we get to do lunch together pretty regularly.
This evening I ran to a couple of stores to get curtains for our master bedroom and sliding glass doors in our dining room! Pictures to come soon. I didn't have too long b/c I had to hurry home to watch American Idol. I just adore Kris Allen :-) I plan on voting for hime like 100 times, but I can't get through...I'm going to be so nervous tomorrow night watching the show. I so hope Kris Allen wins!

Happy Monday!

So it has been a while since I've actually posted a blog! I've been wanting to start blogging again b/c I read so many other blogs and want to be part of the "blogging family" :-) We had a pretty busy but nice weekend! Friday my fiance, Christian and I went to Lowe's to get some paint for our master bedroom! We are in the process of getting the master and guest rooms decorated! After that we went to Outback, our favorite! Saturday was a very busy day.... I went shopping at Ross. Somewhere I never go but found some great stuff! I got two dresses and a pair of sandals for less than $30!

This is my absolute favorite dress and it was only $9.99! You can't be that!!!!! I wore to my cousins birthday party Saturday night!
I also got this cute dress to wear to work and it was also only $9.99!

I just love these sandals I found for only $8.49! Needless to say I was a happy girl when I left!

And our big purchase of the day...We got a boat and can't wait to take it out! We've been wanting a "toy" that we can enjoy together and one day as a family when we have kids! Sunday we didn't do much...Christian finished painting our bedroom and I hung out on the couch! He so good to me and I'm so blessed to have him in my life!

Finally but certainly not last! We are engaged since the last time I blogged! Our big day is October 10, 2009! We are having a small fall afternoon wedding and I can't wait!
I hope you enjoy reading my blog and bare with me while I learn to use this and leave a comment to let me know you stopped by! Hope you all had a GREAT Monday!
