Nothing much..

Hey ya'll. Just updating everyone, not that's there's really anything to update. This past weekend was awesome. I slept in on Saturday. John went volunteer with the neighborhood alley cleanup. Yeah, not for me so I went shopping with some gift cards. Lots of fun! Sunday we went to the mall for a bit because I needed a white shirt and ended up at Old Navy getting one for $10! John's cousins son had his first communion that afternoon so we went to that. He has a great family so it was lots of fun! Right after that we came back home because we had a bar-b-que with the neighbors. It was a very relaxing weekend. John has been working hard on painting the bedroom this week. It's looking really good. I can't wait to post the before and after pics on here.

It's almost Friday thank goodness. I am DONE with work for the week. However, it looks like were going to have another busy weekend. We're having a bar-b-que with a couple Friday night. Saturday we have a wedding to go to. It starts at 2 and the reception is at 5:30 (??!!) I know, it takes up our whole day! Sunday I plan on sleeping in and them my wedding shower is at 1pm. Yay! It's going to be alot of fun, I can't wait! Well, I hope everyone has a great rest of the week! I'm off to work!

So this weekend was very uneventful. Friday night John and I went to see his niece in a high school musical. She wasn't actually in the musical, she was part of the musicians. She was awesome! We got home and to bed about 11:30 and 7am rolled around. We got up, John made breakfast and my friend Kate came over around 7:45. We left the house at 8:15 because the Race for the Cure began at 9am. It was a good time! We met up with our other friend Angela and walked until about 11am. Riley also came. I think they said 40,000 people attended the walk.
This is us four rounding one of the streets and loving the view. The weather was pretty good,as you can see I'm in shorts.

I love this picture because of Riley. Could he be any cuter??!!
That night we went to Bob's for his birthday party. Sunday was a very lazy day. It rained all day and we went to Lowe's to pick out colors for our bedroom. We haven't started painting yet. We taped alot of the moldings and I bought 2 different kinds of sample paint. It's 7 ounces but it's enough to put it on the wall and see what your gonna get. We love the 2 colors we choose so we're gonna buy more of it. Maybe this weekend, though this weekend is filling up as well.
Today is 60 days until the big day! There should be lots of planning going on here but we're just too tired for it. Wedding stuff/ lists/ etc. ooorrr pj's/tv shows/ glass of wine. Not a hard decision is it? So, I'm about to log off here and go curl up on the couch because American Idol is on tonight!!

Wedding Shower/Easter

I just got back from Louisiana. It was alot of fun and it was also my wedding shower. Mom and I drove down Thursday. Lin, Katie, Annie, and I all went eat boiled crawfish that night. They were sooo good!!! Friday we picked John up from the airport and we all did some shopping. Saturday was the shower. It was so amazing and thanks to all my aunts and Lin for putting together my beautiful shower! The food was amazing! My aunt Cathy made the cake and it was so delicious! I'm not a person who particularly likes cake but I ate 2 pieces.
This was the only picture I could find with all four of us in it. I was opening gifts and Katie, who is also my Maid of Honor, wrote down all the gifts, along with the 2 moms-of-the-bride. With everything going on I didn't have alot of time to think, now I wish we would have taken better pictures. I also thought I had pics of me and Lin on my camera but I don't. That's a little disappointing but now I know to think of these things before hand.

This was taken as John was walking out the door before the shower. He came down and it was great having him in Louisiana with me. He also got to meet more of my family.

Easter morning I went to my aunt Christine's house for lunch. It was sooo good! This is 2 of my brothers and I'm so happy I finally got to see them!

Monday was spent buying meat. It will be a while before I get back to LA so we had to stock up! $200 later, our freezer is full!!! We both had a great time and it was so good being able to see my family and spend time with them. I already miss everyone but 66 days until the big day
Tomorrow, it's back to work :(

Engagement Pics

Mom left this morning to go to Illinois to see Josh. We have had such a great time. It's been so nice just relaxing, cooking, and eating our weight in ice cream. John took mom around town all the days I had to work. Saturday we went to the canal to take engagement pictures for us. John and I had planned on going to Archivers today because they had a photographer there who would take 5 pictures for $20. I told mom about it and she suggested she take pictures and see how they came out. We hadn't even thought of that. Anyway, they came out so great! This picture was taken with a timer on the camera. It was such a beautiful day!
This is one of our favorites. It's already in a frame on the mantel. It's such a great family picture.

This is the best of us. I've had such a great time with mom, can't wait until she comes back so we can go to Louisiana!! We leave in 4 days!!!
