Snowed In Part 2

So, as the snow continues to melt I thought it’d be nice to quickly make part 2 of “Snowed In.”

quiltnsnow 004I have finished my fiance’s Star Wars triangle quilt(well I still have to add the binding…bleh!). He loves it. It’s not quite big enough for him to use as a bedtime sleeping quilt, but it’ll be great for when he’s sitting up playing video games or just watching TV.

I did end up going back outside the next day. Chris wanted to build a snowman. Funny thing is that I ended up building the whole thing. Huh? She turned out kinda cute though.

We had to walk over 3 miles or so to Walgreen’s to pickup some food the next day. The snow was past my knees. Walgreen’s didn’t have what we needed so we ended up having to go across the main intersection to the grocery store. I’m just glad this is Virginia and not NY. Lol!

So, that’s the quick continuation of “Snowed In.” I’m actually on the phone right now so if this post seems -not so good- then that’s why. 🙂 It’ll be better next time…I pwomise.

Snowed In

A couple of days ago I stocked up on fabric since I knew that we were expected to get many inches of snow this weekend. It’s was funny because I wasn’t the only one who had that idea. Many women were buying enough fabric and supplies to last them the whole weekend.

I was finishing my fiance’s Star Wars quilt when all of a sudden my sewing machine light started flickering and then the machine stopped working. I was so disappointed. A broken sewing machine meant a boring weekend with nothing to do. Then Christopher came over and told me it wasn’t plugged in all the way. -_- You can imagine how I felt…both happy and embarrassed.

Anyways, snow isn’t my favorite thing. It’s beautiful, but I don’t like being in it because… well, it’s cold. Chris wanted to go out and play in it so I decided to make a sacrifice by going out and trying to have fun. Lol! I only lasted like 10 minutes. I had fun, but my hands were freezing.

So, I will be staying inside to quilt (because i’m a granny), cook, and just relax in the warmth. Being snowed in is not a big deal for me, because I love being at home. 🙂

Are you snowed in too? If so, how are you spending your time?

Our May 2016 Wedding Inspiration

So, I thought a lot about making this post. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to share the theme/look of our wedding since some of the people who will be attending read my blog. I kinda wanted it to be a surprise, but after some thought I decided…why not! I care more about the marriage than the actual wedding decorations and everything. I’d rather focus on cherishing the beginning of a marriage than spending my time making a huge deal about the wedding decorations. I’m not sure if that makes much sense, but yeah. 🙂 I think i’m just super easy-going and simple. Lol!

Which brings me to the point of the fact that our wedding will NOT be all glam and be an extravagant party. I think those weddings are great, but it’s just not my style…and honestly that just seems way too stressful and expensive. Our wedding is going to be very economical and simple. We want to focus on us two becoming one and being blessed by God. To me, that’s what it’s all about.

“For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” Ephesians 5:31

Here are the 3 main colors we decided on:

 

 

Yes, there’s 3…well technically white is a tint, but whatever. The lavender grey is the more feminine color and the dark navy blue is the masculine. I plan to have white flowers to keep things very simple and classy.

The theme is kinda hard to explain in words. It’s like gardeny, but not what you’d call super boho. I don’t know…maybe i’m just trying to stay away from that word. Lol! I plan to have a lot of greenery and as many white flowers as I can. I know flowers can get costly, so we will be focusing mainly of the leafy greenery…which means we WILL be going into a forest or somewhere and clipping our own greenery. Haha! I also want a lot of lit white candles. 🙂

 

That’s pretty much it. Everything that it takes to make this wedding happen is very inexpensive…which I love! 🙂

The key word is SIMPLE. The reception isn’t even going to be sit down dinner style. It’ll be more like walk around and grab the foods you want and enjoy our company. Perfect style for families to meet…and perfect for a low budget. It also means we can invite as many people as we want! Everyone is happy.

The Kind of Wife I Want to Be

Considering the fact that i’m getting married in 123 days (WHAT?!) I thought it was a good idea to write this post while I still have the chance. I not only want to document my feelings on what it means to be a wife, but I want to write about the type of wife I want to be.engagementphotos 145..jpg

I plan to look back from time to time, through the years, as a reminder of my wifey goals. 😉 Here goes…

 

-First thing is that I never want to fall asleep angry with him. We are gonna continue to work out our problems right then and there, and then laugh at how dumb the whole thing was.

-If I see something bothering him I want to be there for him and continue to be his shoulder to cry on.

-I want to listen quietly to what he’s saying without interrupting or assuming.

-I want to tell him that I admire all the things he does for me and how hard he works. I want him to know that I notice what he does.

-I want to greet him with a hug and a kiss even if I have a million other things going on.

-I want to master juicy chicken for him…because he hates it dry. *eye roll*

-I want to make sure he has fresh clean socks and clothes to wear everyday.

-When he comes home from work I want him to be walking into a home that’s relaxing, quiet, and stress free…because I know he’s probably gonna be tired. Also, dinner to be made or in the process.engagementphotos 161.JPG

-I want to remember that i’m not the only person in his life and remind him to hangout with his friends and family often.

-I wanna date him even-though we’ll already be married. Surprise him with his favorite candy and a movie night or something like that.

-I want to go to church with him, pray with him, and study the Bible with him.

-I want to continue to be spontaneous with him…random trips and adventures!

-I want to have time to myself where I can do the things I love so that I can stay happy.

-I want to go out with my gal pals and maybe even continue to go on girl’s trips.

-I want to create a home that’s filled with love and laughter.engagementphotos 281

-I want to forgive him for not putting things back where they belong (or for not closing kitchen cabinets).

-While we’re building a family I want to remember that he was my husband first…and he’ll be the one i’ll be with for the rest of my life…long after our kids move out.

-I want to remember that he has ADHD. So, booger flinging is gonna happen and i’m gonna continue to be disgusted by it…but i’m still gonna love him.

-I want to help make him be the man he wants to be and be supportive of his hobbies.

-I want to make wise money decisions with him. If there’s a disagreement then we will write out our reasons for our thoughts and come to a mutual agreement.

 

Thanks for reading! …I can’t wait to look back on this post. 🙂

Also, I hope you liked some of our engagement photos.
