We had engagement pictures taken over the weekend and our photographer sent us a little peek at our shoot. I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures :)

New camera

We bought a pretty nice camera from a friend for pretty cheap and we've been having fun learning how to use it. We still have a lot of practicing to do but it's way better than our old camera(s)! Last weekend we went to the fish hatchery in the gorge and to a couple waterfalls. Here are some pictures from our day :)

Beach Day

Two weekends ago we went to Cannon Beach in Oregon. It was an amazing February Day, blue skies and warm enough to not wear a coat. We spent the day walking on the beach, going to all the cute little shops and eating lunch outside. After lunch we drove up the coast a bit to Seaside, OR to go to the aquarium. The aquarium is nothing spectacular and is literally one room with fish tanks lining the walls. We just like to go to feed the sea lions. I wish we could go to the beach every weekend, actually if I could live at a beach along the Oregon Coast I totally would.

Eating these while listening to 90's Pop Radio on Pandora

I've been sitting at the coffee table all day with a blanket and my lap top doing wedding things. We've watched Wayne's World and Blaine slept through My Big Fat Greek Wedding now we are getting a little restless and want to get out of the house. Maybe we will head down to Crate & Barrel and see if there is anything we want to add to our registry :)


Elsie from A Beautiful Mess recently adopted a dapple dachshund and now I want one so.freaking.bad. Blaine said no. Apparently two cats and a hamster are enough :( but how can you resist this?!

I want a tiny little dog to go on walks with and to take to the river, the beach and camping. I want a mini dapple dachshund that I can carry in my purse and spoil at the pet store. But I don't want to deal with letting them out to go to the bathroom (which with living on a second floor apartment isn't the most convenient thing to do) or deal with their stank. But again, who can resist that face?!

Wedding Inspiration

Since I live and breathe wedding, I thought I'd share some inspiration and ideas that I'm playing with. While I'm not sharing many details with anyone except Blaine and my parents (what are you sharing, MOM?! O_O), I'll just give you all a peak at some ideas :)

In other wedding news, my parents went to a tasting at the place that we are having the reception at in Illinois and said the food was great and they think it will be awesome :) I'm so excited and I wish I could have been there! I've been working on RSVP cards, direction cards, etc to get invites mailed out soon. Blaine and I are going to order/get our wedding rings soon too eeeee! We both just did our taxes and are getting back more than we thought. Our guests might be able to eat at our wedding now! ;)

Currently Crafting

When I'm not planning a wedding and two receptions, I'm making this quilt

Seriously, my pictures always upload so SMALL and when I make them bigger they look less than fantastic. What is up with this?

Christmas at work

I love the people that I work with. I love that there are only 8 people in the office (plus the boys in the warehouse), I love that we all get along and I love that we take such great holiday pictures!

I'm getting frustrated with blogger and how the pictures upload. It makes all of my pictures so small and blurry. Anyone know how to fix this? :(
