Awkward & Awesome

A fun way to catch up with what has been going on these past few weeks during my blogging hiatus. I'm going to try to make these posts a monthly occurrence because lets face it, I'm a terribly awkward individual so there's bound to be some good stuff. 
You know how you always joke with people and say they're going to get pneumonia unless the dress warmer? Ya, well, I was that person who actually got pneumonia and ended up in the hospital for five days. Whoops? 

A mouse. Was in my house. And I had a meltdown. I then preceded to tell the office that the only mice I have ever had encounters with were in Petsmart. . But at least it was dead, I would have never been able to kill a live one. We would have just passed our hellos and then I would have been in my car on the way home. It did still take me twenty minutes to get that stupid little carcass on a spoon to put it in the trash. My apartment people at least have something to keep them laughing all month.

I've been fortunate enough to never have to take ice off of my windshield before. The few cold days that even happened at home my daddy took care of it. Needless to say, my excitement over an icey car died when I got in it and the windshield wiper wasn't taking it off. I had to call my dad so he could tell me what to do. .

Nic's eyebrows were shaved off on Wednesday due to his service selection at the Academy. So now my fiancé has no hair and eyebrows for the next few months. I'm trying not to think of how dirty he's going to look once his eyebrows start coming in. . Awk-freaking-ward.

I love pictures where both the girl and guy have this serious/fierce/so in love look so I naturally wanted to capture that during our engagement session. Well, I'm. Not. A. Serious. Person. and that really showed when we got back a few pictures where our immediate reaction was to burst out loud laughing. I'm a smiler and that lesson has officially been learned.
Minus the whole eyebrowless-ness, Nic getting his first choice during service selection is awesome and I am so incredibly proud of him. This also means we're officially moving to California at some point next summer or fall!

I finally finished my craft and have almost finished asking all of my bridesmaids. The wedding is starting to actually feel real and I am getting so giddy excited! Eek!

My apartment is starting to feel the Christmas cheer which is in turn making me oh so happy.

I was able to spend Thanksgiving with my entire family, go to my nephew's fourth birthday party and we were able to take our engagement photos before Nic's eyebrows disappeared. It was an extremely successful break and leaves me thinking Christmas should be just as good.

Not too terribly exciting, but you get the gist of what has been going on as of late.

Ciao love bugs! xoxo
