mr. and mrs.



the wedding was perfect. we couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. the weather was perfect...sunny and no wind, which is a miracle for draper. it was a little chilly in the shade for pictures but we toughed it out. the ceremony was ABSOLUTELY perfect. i cried first...then was precious and special and i loved it. the reception in utah was great....there was a fantastic turn out (thanks to everyone that came!) we still have the one to come in kansas city so we aren't completely done yet. we went to vegas for 2 days after the wedding and stayed in the cosmopolitan. it was a.m.a.z.i.n.g. our view was of the bellagio fountains, we had a HUGE balcony and the room was bigger than our apartment...and it was all in orange, purple, and gray :). we mostly just relaxed and enjoyed finally being together after what seemed like a very long engagement apart. we did go see the cirque de soleil michael jackson immortal show which was also amazing. it was a little different then most of the cirque shows, but we both enjoyed it. since we've been back to dallas, we've just been putting together our cute little home, spending time together, and watching lots of movies. thank you everyone for all your love and support. we are so grateful for every bit of it.

(pictures to come, i promise)

"oh i see....solitary confinement...just a man and his smartphone"

only 8 more days of being apart...10 more together before the wedding. i am stressed beyond comprehension...i don't think as a female you understand until you are a bride yourself...exciting but stressful. tomorrow we both fly into kansas city for Thanksgiving for one last trip before the wedding. i'm so excited to see everyone...the whole family will be there and hopefully it can be a somewhat "relaxing" trip. lots to little time..excited to be the mrs. in t-minus 18 days.

32 days and counting....

this past weekend i went to Utah to spend one last weekend there before the wedding. we are finally in the last month of these seemingly never ending long-distance engagement. we worked on wedding stuff, and i'm pretty sure we have all the major things completed. friday night it started snowing and saturday we woke up to about 6-8 inches of snow.... i almost cried...but at the same time it was kind of exciting because i don't get to see that anymore being in dallas. saturday we finished things up with the florist and went up to park city for dinner. overall, it was a nice relaxing weekend.
2 weeks until thanksgiving break and 4 weeks from this weekend until the wedding :).

47 days and counting....

greg has been in town this past weekend for our last weekend in dallas together before the wedding. we finally found a cute apartment that was in a good location and close enough to work and school. we are both ready to have it be december, but until then we are passing the time. we went and saw footloose, carved pumpkins, watched plenty of ranger's games (greg is still learning to be a fan), and went and saw the boys for dinner.
