I'll Love You Tomorrow

This past month has been a complete blur! After finishing up the semester, I came home and helped get Kyle all packed to move. We moved all of his stuff up to Gainesville the weekend before Christmas and had a great time arranging everything the way we wanted it.

 The next week was pretty stressful trying to get all of the last minute Christmas things done plus Wedding activities. Christmas was even crazier than normal. We've celebrated Christmas with both families for years now, but with Sunday being Christmas everyone's schedule were off. We ended up having to do a lot of things at different times than normal and it was much harder on us than any previous year. Also, neither of our families have ever really had to "share" holidays before, so they don't like that we're not with our family the whole time. We did get this awesome plaque from FSIL for our house!

These past two weeks, Kyle was working trying to make some extra money. I'm so thankful that he thinks about things like that and wants to make sure that we'll be okay starting out. Unfortunately, it kept him from being around much before the wedding and my stress level hit the roof. I really don't like getting upset with people and this whole week I've felt like every detail ended up as a battle. I'll be so thankful when there are no more details to worry about. I feel like all of the details are done, and yet every time I turn around my mom has this whole list of things I just don't think matter. It's been highly frustrating!

Only 1 more day!!!!

And I Need You More Than Ever

I officially finished my internship on Friday and I can't believe how much I miss being there already! We didn't tell any of the kids that I was leaving until Friday and I'm glad we didn't. I was completely the topic of conversation for the whole day. My teacher also announced to them that I was getting married and so the next time they saw me I'd have a different last name. One little boy kept walking around going, "You can't do it, you can't do it Ms. Davis!" When I asked him what he was talking about he said I couldn't get married. He also asked me if "When you get married do you get to hug?" When I told him yes he said, "That's what I thought." Way too precious!!

I have definitely been blessed with having a pretty stress free wedding planning experience. Sadly, that wonderful time has seemed to disappear! I always thought that the hardest part was going to be planning the wedding along with doing my full time internship and taking a class. While there were some times when I was frustrated by it, I didn't have very many problems. Ever since Thanksgiving everything seems to be coming at me full force! I didn't think through the fact that I would be finishing my internship/class, Kyle would have finals, we would be trying to move Kyle up, celebrate the holidays, and finish all the last minute wedding details in the final month. We will be so glad when the wedding is here and we don't have to be thinking about all the last minute details! With Christmas almost here, I know that the wedding will be here before we know it!

Our Lives Would Never Be the Same

I can't believe how quickly this month is flying by!

At the beginning of the month, my wonderful bridesmaids threw me a bachelorette weekend. They rented a condo on the beach and we had a nice, low key weekend just hanging out together. Unfortunately, it suddenly got cold in Florida and we didn't spend too much time laying out. I am so thankful to be blessed with such wonderful friends!

The following weekend, I headed home for my bridal shower. It went really well and I really loved how everyone was able to so easily mingle with each other. It was really cool to see all the different parts of my life come together so smoothly! Kyle and I were also blessed with a lot of great things for our apartment!

I've also newly become addicted to Pinterest! This past weekend, I made numerous things that I found there! The first thing I tried was making popcorn in a plain brown paper bag! Umm...hello, Genius! When I moved into our apartment I realized that there wasn't a microwave. Kyle gave me the one that he had in his dorm, but it's the tiniest thing ever and popcorn bags are too big. Needless to say, this was probably the most exciting thing I've ever come across! It also totally worked! Put 1/4 cup popcorn kernels in a brown paper bag. Fold over twice. Microwave for three minutes and enjoy! I also joined the world of crockpots and made a great honey chicken. I can't wait for it to be colder so I can make a ton of yummy soups and stews! Last but not least, I made a pumpkin cream cheese roll for my work potluck today. Obviously I spent a large amount of time cooking yesterday!

Wedding Fun, Pinterest, and Crockpots :)

Hey Baby, I Think I Wanna Marry You

Some days you just have to laugh.

Late last night, Kyle joked that I should just call out of my internship because I was up late and knew I would be tired in the morning. Obviously, I would never do that, so I woke up after 4 hours of sleep to go to school. After walking outside into the cold, but beautiful weather that's just started here I turned my key in the ignition and rewarded with NOTHING! I ended up having to call out of my internship since I couldn't get there.

Thank goodness for AAA. Unfortunately, after an hour of waiting they still hadn't showed up. When I called I was informed that they came by, didn't see my car (I was the second car in the lot!!!), tried to call, and not being able to get a hold of me, left! My phone had never rang, the number they had wasn't even close to mine! Over an hour later, AAA finally showed up! Luckily, they were able to easily replace my battery, which was the only problem.

I decided that I would go ahead and clean the apartment since I had the rest of the day free. I put the laundry in the wash and went down to pick it up to put in the dryer. As I'm standing there waiting for the last minute to finish, the power went out on the whole block, locking my laundry into the washing machine. Thankfully, it's a gorgeous day and I was able to open up all the windows and curl up with a book waiting for the power to come back!

I did get to make this really yummy Pumpkin Pie Dip!

This Could Be Love

Everyone always tells you how quickly time flies when you're planning a wedding, but when we first got engaged I really didn't see how 14 months would fly by. Well, here we are, 2 1/2 months till the wedding and I have no idea where the time went!!! I can't wait to be married and past the planning part of it.

Life seems to be a blur of teaching and work at the moment. I absolutely love my internship, but it is exhausting! It will be nice to have a decently relaxing final semester; I'll only have class three days a week! Despite the craziness I can't imagine doing anything else and can not wait until I have my own classroom!

I Want to Hold You Close

I have been a horrible blogger and there is just so much going on! I completely moved into the apartment and got everything set up. I can't wait for Kyle to be able to move in with me!

I started my full time internship! I'm working in a Kindergarten classroom. It's been very challenging, but I absolutely love it1! I can't wait to finish my program and be able to have my old classroom. The kids are hilarious and I keep meaning to start a compilation of all the great things they have said. One day, when asked what word the sounds i-ce make the student replied, "lets just say hippo!" Sometimes it's just so hard not to laugh! If you need a self-esteem boost you should definitely visit a kindergarten classroom. Not only have my outfits been complimented on a regular basis, but I have been told I look like ICarly, am a little boy's 'girl/honey', and have been told numerous times a day that I'm loved.

One weekend, we threw one of the girls in our cohort a baby shower. She's expecting a little boy named Landon at the end of the year.

Kyle and I were able to pick out our wedding bands and the tuxes this past month!

We also went to my Uncle's wedding this past weekend. It was nice to have Kyle up here for the long weekend! We also got to see my whole family, which always seems to be full of craziness! Apparently, now that my cousin's married and I'm engaged we're allowed to be in on the drama. The two of us were pulled aside multiple times throughout the night for someone to tell us about something going on that we shouldn't tell anyone about...No wonder there's no secrets in my family!
