Nick and I have been getting ready to get married in the spring as most of you know. Something most of you don't know is that I told him long ago that If he didn't ask me proper I was calling the whole thing off! Well all things come in there own time.

Yesterday I was talking to Roger (Brother in law) on the phone about vitamin D supplements and out of the blue Nick started "herding" me to walk a different direction. I told Roger I needed to go see what Nick needed. Its not every day he tries to herd me.

Nick told me he just wanted to go for a walk with me. So we walked down the gravel road talking randomly as we often do on our walks. I stopped to play with the goats down the road. on our way back he spun me around and told me he had something he wanted to give me. I was pretty sure I knew what it was. He kissed me and told me that was all ( hes so cute when hes nervous), I thanked hm. then he pulled the box out and told me he had been carrying it around all day. Nick got on his knee in the middle of the gravel road and asked me if I would spend the rest of my life with him. I hugged him and cried. Nick asked me again, just to make sure It was a yes I'm sure.

Nick then told me a few of the plans he had to ask me. one of them was that he was going to send me on a state long scavenger hunt including places we have been together. the other was to ask in the middle of the engagement picture shoot. although either of these would have been fun, I like that it was more personal, doing something we like to do.

the classy wedding

OK... so I have been looking up wedding Ideas. I kinda' know what I want in my head but I'm trying to find something that resembles my idea. I have tried looking for pictures of things in my head before and it never works so I don't know why I try! Anyway... I typed in "classy wedding" and got some pictures that make me wonder if people know what class is. some speak for them selves and others I thought were just funny.
in my opinion this is not classy! on your wedding day you should look elegant! this reminds me of something that could be used for the wedding night! FYI the bride is 16. see article.
there should be a time and a place...this isn't it!

I also found a website full of tacky wedding pictures... all while looking for some class! a must see if you enjoy laughing at other peoples classlessness!

fun wedding ideas

I know its not wedding Wednesday, but I don't have a lot of blogging time these days so now its "whatever whenever blogging!"

I have been looking up wedding Ideas etc. and I found a few things that I like! some I may use but most wont go with my theme.

Penney rolls

The rolls of pennies are for your out of town guests to use at the penny slots. just use regular penny rolls with red an white twine (bakers twine) to tie your personalized note on!

I thought that Kat would love this tea cup center piece found on an Eco friendly wedding website!

Fred Meyer Got a giant pumpkin in . The whole day I tried to figure out how a $40 pumpkin would fit into my budget!

It's 144 pounds ( I would need someone else to carry it, its bigger then I am), 84 inches around, beautiful Orange color, minimal scaring, flat bottom, nice stem, and good round shape. that information was for "pumpkin snobs" like Nick.

No Its not really that big and I don't think Fred Meyer tucks it in at night.

I really like the Idea of ridiculously large pumpkins!

Happy October!

I love October... with exception of being cold its one of my favorite months! Why you ask? this is the month that things start turning beautiful fall colors, the holiday baking begins, and Halloween celebration!

Yesterday I made Macaroons for the first time! they aren't very halloweeny but they were good.

Nick and I bought pumpkins to carve, we weren't actually able to carve them this weekend but maybe next weekend.

I am also in the midst's of brainstorming a great costume!
