we're moving!

after tons of craigslist stalking we finally found a new place to rent!
a condo :) I'm really excited for the change (and to decorate, paint, plant flowers, and have a garage... oh and 7 (seven) closetss!!)

We've only ever had an all white bedroom, our furniture is white and our bedding is white. This time around I wanted to actually make it look complete. We're definitely painting. I had to share my yummy new duvet cover from pottery barn!

This is the main reason painting is so important...
It was an 88 yr old woman who owned the condo... can you tell? Bless her.

my momma.

this is my beautiful (inside and out) momma, debbie.
mother's day is one of my favorite holidays because i love taking the day to thank my mom for everything she's done for me.
my mom is one of my best friends and i love her so much it hurts sometimes.

baby steps.

it's been fun nonetheless! i think we have a few things pretty much settled...
1. outdoor ceremony / indoor reception
2. colors: robin's egg blue + coral
3. bridesmaids: amanda.heather.crystal.lindsay.chelsea
4. groomsmen: joe.willis.garrett.kaare.shane
5. music: John Fett Quartet + iPod playlists (cheap, but should be a blast)

I've really wanted to get engagement photos done, but they just haven't been in the budget lately. I need to find someone that is willing to help me out with the price, or maybe do some type of trade.
It's so nice out now... hopefully we can do them soon!
