BM shoes?

I think I will probably have the bridesmaids pick their own silver heels. I haven't really decided yet. Here are some I like from DSW:

Happy birthday, Elsie/Happy Thanksgiving!

Today is Elsie's first birthday! I cannot believe it has been a year! Tiffany and Brad had Elsie's first birthday party last weekend, and it was SO much fun! I think Elsie had a blast, too:

We had a great Thanksgiving! I can't believe how quickly the day went by! Before we left, Callie and I went on a pre-overeating run...Once I reached Butch and Judy, I made a SWEET cheeseball turkey...

Mom and Dad brought the turkey, mashed potatoes, orange jello (YUM-O!) and pumpkin pie. Claire brought corn pudding (YUM-O!), and Grandpa brought a poinsetta. All of that was added to Butch and Judy's ham, green beans, apple pie, ice cream, noodles, gravy... I enjoyed having everyone together! After we ate, we went to visit Grandma. She had a busy day!

I wish Lisa would have been a little more talkative...

I guess maybe she was tired...
(Love you, Sis!!)

Elf yourself... never gets old.

Miss you.

Miss you, sisters...(RIP Cheese Ball Turkey - ha!)...

I am in the process of uploading the engagement pics to Shutterly. While I am waiting, I have been looking through old pictures. I came across this:
I am pretty sure Mom and Dad took this picture. I am standing in front of my apartment in Rolla (that I shared with Jules for a while and SL for a while), and I am pointing across the yard to Krista/Kara/Sarah's. Oh how I miss those days and those 55 steps...

Our sweet Cal...

Okay, really headed to bed now. I HAD to add this one of Callie - I love it more every time I look at it! It makes me want to tear up a little!


I should be asleep...

Okay, so I was goofing around (instead of sleeping!)! I think I will make holiday save-the-dates for sure! They will be inexpensive but beautiful! I made this VERY SIMPLE sample...

I may have to good around on Photoshop after school tomorrow!


All my stalking has paid off...

Our engagement pictures are up on Zach and Sarah's blog!!!

Sneak peek:

sunflower stamps!

Mom came across these new stamps from USPS:
LOVE them: )

sparkly necklace!!

Jen just sent me a link to this necklace! How pretty is this!?! I don't have jewelry for my dress yet, this could be an option...


ring pillow?

Ryan, Nick's nephew, will be our cute little ring bearer.

Cute nephew:
I think I want to have him carry a KU related ring pillow - or stuffed animal?

Cute stuffed animal: Cute ring pillow:

I also found this...

In love...

I'm in love...with my new coat:
Outerwear is 50% off this weekend at Old Navy! I look kind of silly in this picture because I put my arms up...but I LOVE it! Nick thinks the color is silly, but I think he is silly. HAHA. He said he likes if I like it - DONE! $45 instead of $90 - DEAL!

Eight months...

Seven months until the wedding...yikes! It sure is sneaking up on us! People who are only engaged for a few months must really have to "get their plan on!" I have been enjoying taking my time, but I know I will have to step it up soon!

I just bought this locket - $10!! I love it...

I don't think I have said this yet - the bridesmaid dresses came in! YAYAY! They came the day before I saw Krista and Julia, so Krista and I picked them up on the way to STL last weekend. They tried them on at the same time - BEAUTIFUL!!! SOOOOOOOOOOOO pretty - I'm happy to say I love the dresses even more in person than I thought I would!

Now I need to convince Nick to go look at tuxes! I spent one minute looking and found this one called "Tuscany" - HAHAHA!

Becky's Wedding

Congratulations, Becky and Steve Bergner!!

This weekend was GREAT! I took Friday off from work, and Krista flew in to KC Thursday night. We were dumps Thursday night, but it was awesome to just hang out with a friend!

On Friday, we met some of guys from Rolla for lunch, and then we went to Old Navy and Gap. I bought some tops (I bought the black version of the pink shirt!) for our engagement pictures next week (weather forecast for picture day: mostly sunny and 56)!

Then, we drove to St. Louis, and we met our friends at Nickie and Jenny's Halloween party! SO fun!! On Saturday, Kara's mom made us pancakes (YUM - O!!), and then we went to have our nails done. We made it to the wedding JUST IN TIME!!! Beautiful!!! Then, we went to the hotel and throughouly enjoyed the reception! Becky looked amazing!!!

The time went quickly: ( - but hopefully we will all be together again soon!
