Engagement Photos

Here’s a teaser.

And I love this one.

All images credit of Laura Meyer, awesome photographer extrordinaire.

Seriously, go to her website.  NOW.



I am supposed to be dressed up as Marge Simpson in a very cute costume that my future Mother-In-Law made me.  Instead I am stuck here in bed, sick as a dog.  And I actually like Halloween.


Soon, honey, soon.

I will have engagement pictures for you ASAP.  I promise.

In other news, I got linked by Honey Bee Weddings!

I’m famous!  Woo hoo!

Garage Cleanout

We have a very tiny garage.  Very, very tiny.  But one thing you cannot find in the city is an attached garage, and we have one.  It very much sold me on our condo.  Our garage is a one-car and it is very tight on the right and left side of the car.  I have never scraped the car, but you-know-who has.  A few times.

Luckily, the garage is deep enough that we are able to store a ton of stuff in it.  The problem was, that even though everything was in waterproof containers,

they were stacked on top of each other, which led to much frustration when looking for something seldom used.  We were able to add shelves yesterday.  We bought rubbermaid shelves at Menards and put them in the garage.

These are the shelves we bought (almost double the price at Target then Menards)  What a huge difference it made!  Here they are in our garage.

You can see that some of the bigger containers don’t fit, so I need to fanagle some setup for them.

Now I just need to stop by the Salvation Army because my trunk is filled with junk to drop off!

Windows: The final chapter

Today I take the day off to sit while Polish men replace my windows.  I have my coffee and my new book:

And I think I’ll catch up on some much needed blogging and Google Reader.

Goodbye, cruel windows, goodbye.

I can not even describe to you how exited I am to turn on the heat.  We have been making do with blankets.  And sweaters, and slippers.  Even Stanley is cold.  BTW sorry Stanley.

You’ll be locked in the bathroom all day.

My last post on the pics, I almost promise

I have been OBSESSING about the weather on Sunday.  Right now, it doesn’t look too bad.  (Do you want to hear about how our windows leaked again last night?  Didn’t think so!)

Luckily, I bought a cute polka-dot umbrella at Target, just in case.

Just in case.

I am off to the library and the Gym, in a desperate attempt to look thinner tomorrow.  Please don’t do a rain dance.  Please.

Sunday- Brrrrr.

Do I get a cute umbrella and stick it out for engagement pictures?  They could be charming.  Or just cold and miserable.
