Our First Valentines Day

Me and Maikal are not the biggest Valentines Day celebrators. But since it was such a nice day out, we decided to play around Nic. Sharon Park.
First we went and got some Booster Juices then headed to the park.
As we skipped along the sidewalk we came to a playground.
Then within seconds, Maikal gave me a big wet one on the lips and said, "You're it!"
Kissing Tag!
I love tag, but that doesn't mean I am good at it...
If Maikal were an animal, he would be a monkey.
He is seriously the best climber I know, so as we were climbing all around the playground,
I realized that not even spiderman would be able to catch this man!
So I just eventually gave up.....sad I know.
I should have pretended to hurt myself to get him close enough for me to kiss him :)








He thought it would be funny to record me jumping along the rocks
and kind of hoping I would fall...you know, just to laugh at it later :)

Bye Bye Kendra....for 5 months.

Kendra Tidmarsh has officially left for China! She is teaching English to young children until mid June. She is one of my BESTEST FRIENDS and I already miss her sooo much!

She has inspired me in so many ways and I still
continue to learn from her. The people in China
are privileged to have Kendra in their country :)

Why Kendra Tidmarsh is so Awesome:
Bubbly Attitude
Outgoing
Honest
Positive
Freakin Fun!
Great Cook ;)
Flirty
Dark Brown Eyes-mesmorizing
Fantastic Fashion Sense
Beautiful Smile
Amazing Singing Voice
Talks with her hands
Witty
the list could go on and on and on and on and on and...well you get it




Friendship isn't a big thing - it's a million little things.


Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same.


Kendra, We Love you :)


Probably the best picture of us ;)

Planning Planning Planning...

We only have 3 months to get everything done, and so far, it all seems to be coming together quite nicely :)
We have decided that our colours are going to be dark brown and creme
I would love to go for a more antique, victorian theme for the wedding.

Lace, Pearls, Tool, Antique decorations..etc.

In order to keep the planning organized...I decided to make this HUGE list on my wall. This way, whenever I see it I will remember what needs to get done instead of just leaving it to the last minute.

I seriously messed up on the 'g', as you can probably tell...






I will be blowing up a picture of us
and putting it into this frame :)


My mom bought this...so freakin adorable!
I will probably put it up by the guest book table.


Here is a tub full of fabrics we bought.
Not exactly sure where it's all going to go,
but with my mom's help, things will
definitely fall into place ;)


Center Pieces
I chose to have these as our centre pieces :)
They are simply brown wooden pots and I just love them!
I am still deciding what I want to fill the pots with,
but I do know that I want pearls spilling out of them.



As for the Wedding Dress.....
I found this absolutely beautiful dress online...and I mean BEAUTIFUL!
Perfect in every way.
Lace, big train, form fitting...
But, I recently received an email from the company saying that they had finished the dress, but they were unsatisfied with the finished project and told me that I could either get a full refund, or wait for another dress to be made.
I wrote back telling them that I had time to wait for another dress to be made,
but I also asked if it were possible to be mailed the other dress as well, just so that I am able to have SOMETHING to wear on my wedding day!
And until I have my dress, I am unable to buy
Jewellery and shoes
that will compliment the dress.
I've never been a patient person, so the suspense is killing me!


Bridesmaids and Groomsmen
For the girls, I would like them in cute brown dresses and
creme accessories. (pearls, lace, belts, etc)
For the guys, I am really struggling with them.
Probable thinking black suit plants, white tops
with a brown tie to match the girls,
not too sure if that will look good or not.


Some other things that are on my list of things to get done are:
- Take engagement pictures
- Book the HoneyMoon :) - we plan to go to Mexico, or maybe even Cuba. Maikal served his Mission in Mexico and has never gone back to visit. Plus he knows the language which will seriously benefit us :)
We are thinking Cancun if it is Mexico. I was looking online, redweek.com, and thought about just Renting someones Timeshare for a week. We're not made of money, so Im always looking for the best deals and cheapest flights.
- Find a place to live, hopefully in lethbridge

If anybody has any helpful tips about ANYTHING, please do not hesitate! I am all ears and I can really use the advice :)

Let the Good Times Roll

Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something: they're trying to find someone who's going to make them feel good. In reality, the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take. - Anthony Robbins

No Road is long with good company. You know you are completely comfortable with someone when you both can sit in silence and not be awkward about it. Simply enjoying each other's company :)

I love making him smile
I love cooking him dinners
I love taking care of him when he is sick
I love going on cute dates
I love Cuddling and talking about how our day went
I love his passion for life
I love that he puts God above all else
I love that he loves me
I love him.
