Jordan is taking me Christmas shopping today!
I am so excited to get my shopping underway.
I am making a few of my gifts this year and have already started them!
I am so anxious to tell what they are, but it would give away the surprise...
25 Days 'til Christmas!

I want to wish all of you a wonderful time of Thanksgiving today. I hope that you enjoy your friends and family and stuff yourself with yummy food.

In the spirit of the holiday, I want to list the things I am thankful for:
My family- they have supported me through every part of my life
Jordan- My best friend and future husband: he appreciates the little things about me that are often unnoticed. Thank you for your love. I cannot wait to start a family with you.
My friends- The rays of sunshine that give me light so I can see my way. Thank you for your encouragement, accountability and love. I am truly blessed.
I am also thankful for: Montreat College,My professors and Grace Community Church.

Almost there!!

5 days until Thanksgiving Break and It can't come soon enough.
It has been 2 weeks since I have seen my fiancé and family, and I am more than anxious to be with them.

I am ready to start a little Christmas shopping! Jordan is going hunting a few times over break and It will be a perfect opportunity to get some things done.

I am so ready to visit family and even more excited about this being our first Holiday as an engaged couple!

brew n' view

Headed to the Brew n' View this afternoon with the girls to see "The Dark Night"

This cute little theater is only 3bucks a view. Every other row of seating has been removed and replaced with a table so that you can order pizza and drinks while you are watching your flick.

I cant wait!

I am up early to start my day before classes and let me tell is Freezing! All I want to do is crawl back in bed and get cozy. I checked the temp outside. 25 degrees!!! There is also a chance of snow today!

So the countdown for breaks begin.

I am so excited to start wedding planning and Christmas shopping (both I have no time for at the moment).

REMEMBER! ABCs 25 days of Christmas started last night! This means Christmas movies from here on out until the big day!!!

I got into a really motivated mood yesterday to do a little wedding planning.
Although, I am still really trying to figure what it means to plan MY wedding.

At the current, planning simply means spending way to much time on and trying to find out prices for little things.
I started making a preliminary guest list so that I can send out save-the-dates in Dec. (Jordan made his list too and surprised me with it!)

In one since I feel like I am starting to early and in another I feel like there is SO much to do!
I am going to be thankful when Christmas break rolls around so that I can Plan Plan Plan.

I am open to wedding keep them coming!

I had the most wonderful weekend.
Friday I spent here at school and didn't make the trip home until Saturday morning. Friday night I got to see a friend who I haven't seen in awhile. I greeted her at the door and she extend her arm out to me with a giant tote full of things. When I opened my gift I was so thrilled to see it stuffed with a wedding planner/organizer notebook and countless bridal magazines! so much fun!
Saturday morning I drove home and met Jordan for a breakfast date and then went to scout out a potential wedding ceremony site. I LOVE the place. It is a Barn shed near my grandparents house and I hope it works out for us to be married there. 2 potential problems though. #1 HEAT (the wedding is going to be in August and I don't want my guests to have to be miserable) #2 RAIN? (weather can never be predicted at that time of the year) I will do some more thinking. Saturday I also went dress shopping for Jenna. She found her dress! She is going to look no less than stunning!
Sunday morning Jordan, my momma and sisters drove up the mountain to come to church. I am so thankful for Grace.

Sunday Afternoon Jordan and I had our engagement pictures done! I was so thrilled with how it all worked out. I cannot wait to see them! For a sneak peak go to:

So with Pictures out of the way and a million things going through my head, I wish you (and me) a Happy Monday!

PA report

Its Friday!
Can you believe its already Nov. 7th!?! This Fall semester has flown by. Jordan and I have been discussing huge issues about our future life together. We have so many things to figure out before next august. One of them is where and when I am going to go to PA school. He has been so precious in doing research for me and giving me the nightly "PA report". Last night, in his report, he discovered that Wake Forest was not going to be as expensive as I had originally thought. Well that boosted my spirits. So now I know I am going to apply to Wingate, ECU and Wake Forest. Being accepted to any of these schools means that we will have to move to another town. SCARY because we have both lived in Alexander County our entire life. It is also exciting to know that we would share the experience together. Please Pray for our discernment and wisdom (and sanity) as we continue to go down this road of making LARGE decisions together.

Side note: I am open ears to any wedding planning advice!!

Happy Friday!
(so excited to go dress shopping with Jennarae tomorrow!)

election day

So I used voting to my advantage today.

If you were a voter you could receive a free cup of Starbucks coffee and a free Krispy Cream donut.

Well. I got both.
My self accompanied with two friends took our coffee and donuts to the GrovePark Inn where we made our selves at home. I settled in to a comfy leather sofa and was able to witness the most beautiful autumn view. It made my calculus homework incredibly less painful.
Here is some of the scenery I was able to witness...

It was glorious. It was perfect.

halloween weekend

Friday was Halloween!
It was so fun to be able to get dressed up and spend time with friends.
We had trick-or-treating in our dorm. A lot of families brought their children to wander our halls and get a ton of candy.

I had candy and made popcorn hands.
this is what our candy setup looked like
I was a prirate and two of my friends dressed up like a bumble bee and a jabberwocky.So Halloween was a success. We ended up in downtown Asheville later that night for dinner at a wonder restaurant called Doc Cheys.

Saturday my momma and sister visited all day. It was wonderful for them to come visit. We spent all day in Asheville shopping around and having a good time together.
We went to AC Moore to get scrapbooking things.

I am going to do a scrapbook for my and Jordan's engagement! I am excited about doing that!
