Royal Wedding

The Royal Wedding

Prince William & Catherine Middleton

Friday 29 April 2011 at Westminster Abbey

We're having a girls' night tomorrow to watch the Royal Wedding, complete with hats. How fun is that? I love love, and love weddings even more now, as I anticipate my own :)

Fun fact: Prince William's last name is Mountbatten-Windsor.

Egg Hunt

At work last week we had an egg hunt, but instead of finding candy inside our eggs, we found numbers for a raffle with little sayings. It was really fun and we all spent some time discussing what little fortunes we got. My four:
"You have a deep interest in all that is artistic"

"Your home is the center of great love"

"You should be able to undertake and complete anything"

"The truly generous share, even with the undeserving"

Happy Earth Day and Happy Good Friday

The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little to do with success as our culture has defined it.

Easter = Freedom

Happy Friday

Come closer, weekend.

How did this happen?

So I've finally made a dent in my work to-do list only to realize.. whoa, my personal to-do list hasn't been touched in a while. Just keep swimming, swimming :)


My prayers go out to those struggling with way more than finding a veil or picking up dry shampoo. When life feels uncertain, it's hard. Keep resting in His strength.

My morning was awesome

Alice: I’ve had nothing yet, so I can’t take more.
The Hatter: You mean you can’t take less; 

it’s very easy to take more than nothing.
- Alice in Wonderland

You know how when your life is monotonous and you need a flash of spontaneity to stay sane? You know when your life is crazy and you cling to your routine? I'm more in the later category. And my morning was awesome. My sweet fiance worked with me. We (I) wanted to share breakfast this morning since he was technically available and today marks 150 days until our wedding (yay!). So he came over to my parents house and brought himself some breakfast while I ate my boring everyday cereal and coffee. But it was just what I needed. I was showered but still in pjs, we did the newspaper suduko and jubbles together, and talked with my mom a little. I'm still smiling.

Take Courage

…In the world you will have trouble, but take courage, I have conquered the world.
— John 16:33


I think my to-do list is really long right now? I look forward to writing it down in our staff meeting on Thursday.

Ring Look-alike

So our post-engagement pictures that were taken are all on my dad's computer and I have yet to retrieve them. Today I happened to find this image below which looks a lot like my engagement ring! So I wanted to share :) I love it (it's beautiful, but still mainly because of what it means).


Tomorrow marked 5 months til :)

Happy Wednesday

The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.  ~Audrey Heburn


The weather is beautiful! My fiance stopped by to say "hi." When I walked into work, a coworker mentioned that "he'd better be your hubby-to-be with the way that hug was going." And tonight I'm packing for a little beach trip with my best friend's family. I feel just about as sunny as the sky looks :)

I did it again


I'm forever learning how to cast my cares, anxieties and worries to the Lord. I've been marvelously selfish recently, and it's showing in my attitude and actions. I hate getting irritated when it's so not necessary. And it's okay to not get it right, and to fail, because forgiveness is waiting, but not without acceptance of wrong and repentance, and mostly likely, consequences. Through struggle, can character be formed.Chin up and I'm so thankful for renewal and love.

be witty if you must, 
but be gracious if it kills you. ”

I'm a lover

This whole work thing really cuts into my loving time. 

*So lately, I've been researching the mess out of wedding decorations and Disney... also, the quote reminds me of Perfect Couples. I'm really loving that show. 

Happy Busy Weekend :)


While I'm totally with Audrey, I still do love being busy sometimes, and with those I love. I get to run a 5K, actually an obstacle course 5K (mostly exciting, a little scary) with my fiance, brother and sister in law. My younger brother is visiting this weekend, bring his girlfriend that we are all meeting for the first time. Very exciting! And Sunday will potentially have Easter egg dying and our Save the Dates photos being taken. (yay wedding stuff :) ). Oh and fiance will actually be working night shifts all weekend.. so I'm praying I'll be patient and understanding with his limitations! Blessings to all :)
