Happy Friday, ya'll. I'm still stuffed from Turkey Day! It's nice to have the day off to relax and to have no real plans. We're going to head back to our house in just about an hour and will probably lounge for the rest of thr weekend!

Friday's letters!

Dear Ipad, thanks for being so convenient! I didn't want to pull my laptop to start this post anyway. Dear dog, I'm sorry you have to wear that silly cone. I hope the fleas leave you soon! Dear Blogger, thanks for having a handy-dandy 'save' button so that when 3G goes out on the ride home, I can finish my post later. Dear family, I thoroughly enjoyed our time yesterday. Thanks for being so awesome. Dear food, you tasted SO delicious last night...however, my stomach was not happy that I decided to consume so much of you yesterday.  Dear lesson plans, thank you for being so easy to make this week! I like testing weeks. Dear Sissy, I can't wait for our birthday shenanigans on'll be so excited once you find out what we're doing. teeheehee. Dear fiancĂ©, thank you for being so incredible. I am still in awe of how I got so lucky. Dear ridiculous Black Friday shoppers, I'm currently sitting at home in my sweatpants, relaxing with my fiance instead of standing in line for hours to save just a few dollars. Priorities, folks.

I hope everyone has a wonderful rest of their long that all of my papers have been graded and lesson plans have been written, I can spend the rest of my time relaxing with this guy! :)

Engagement Pictures

I never shared all of our awesome engagement pictures with you guys...we took them one early freezing Saturday morning early this month. I wanted to do pictures during the fall because we're getting married in the fall next year, and when we send out Save the Dates, I want them to have the same feel as when we get married next year. I don't know if that makes any sense in anyone else's brain except mine.

We met my cousin downtown in my hometown, and took advantage of the beautiful scenery. We stopped by restaurants that weren't quite open yet, ducked into doors that were beautiful, and even ventured onto the train tracks--where a train swept by just about 5 minutes after we left!

Lauren did a wonderful job taking our pictures and Z and I had an absolute blast...he even mentioned that he would like to do it again sometime. :)

Check out her website if you're in central/eastern NC and need someone to take your pictures!

That's just a few of them...I'll share the rest in a later post.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving Break! We're off to visit my family in Kernersville tomorrow for lunch, and we'll spend the night at Z's mom's house tomorrow night. Friday-Sunday it's nothing but rest and relaxation before putting in the final 3.5 weeks before Christmas break arrives!

It's Okay...

It's Thursday, and we all know what that means!

Time for me to link up with Neely for it's OK Thursday!
It's OK
  • to want this week to be over week is a one day week!
  • to not tutor this afternoon just so I can go home and unwind--having a meeting every day after school for two weeks can exhaust a girl
  • To really be really excited that I hit my goal weight...
    • ...and to now be looking forward to the buffet of "bad food" that was promised to me once I did
  • to sit in front of the TV and refuse to get up and cook dinner because I was in a bad mood (I may have done this last night)
  • to be really sad that I have to wait 6 more months for the next book in the Crossfire series.
  • to want all of this wedding planning stuff to be OVER so we can just be married already...sheesh.

That's all that my little brain can produce right now. Kiddos will be here soon. Enjoy your Thursday, loves!
I'll leave you with one of my FAVORITE pictures from our engagement session from a few weeks ago.

Dear weather, thanks for FINALLY holding up so we can have our engagement pictures tomorrow! So excited. Dear David's Bridal, I'm only coming to my appointment tomorrow because I feel obligated. You've already pissed me off once, don't do it again. Two strikes and you're out. You're welcome--for giving you a second chance. Dear fiance, thank you for putting up with all of my crazy moods lately. You're a saint. Dear wine, thank you for always being so're especially tasty after a hard day at work.
