February Update

Things have been so busy lately I haven't had time to write on my own blog. Well, this one at least.  

I have been planning the wedding and things are going well. With the exception of the photographer crisis. The first one missed our first meeting. The second didn't show to our engagement shoot. I e-mailed 4 more photographers and got no answer and finally one responded. A husband and wife team that seem very enthusiastic and dependable. It was getting a little stressful there for a moment. 

I have been learning a new skill thanks to my friend Jennifer and I am hoping it will make me much happier in the future. 

I also started a new hobby. As if nail polish wasn't enough! I have started collecting vintage Pyrex. I think the closer we get to the wedding the more and more I miss my mom and wish she could be here to hang out with, the more I want things around me that remind me of her. Mrs. Schultz gave me such a wonderful wonderful gift. My mother's correlle dishes. Since then I have been on a mission to find more things that remind me of her. Then as I started growing my collection Mrs. Schultz gave me 5 vintage Pyrex bowls that belonged to Russel's grandmother. I was just kind of blown away. I mean how lucky am I to have a Mother-in-law who is so wonderful? 

Russel has even endured taking me to antique malls and walking around with me. Poor guy even had to carry around stuff for me. A true sign of love I am sure!!!!

I found a great deal on an old IKEA bookshelf at a thrift store and now it displays my awesome treasures. 


Then there is work. Work has been stressful and difficult. I can only hope that things improve for everyone there. I have to consciously make an effort to make myself go there daily. It is worse than it has ever been. 

And here are some cute pictures of my kids for your viewing pleasure.

And the beautiful flowers I got for my birthday for Russel. They couldn't have come at a better time and they are my favorites!!!
