flowers for wedding

Above is the blue hydrangea bouquet of flower I want to carry for the wedding but white ribbon to cover the stems.

Above is a white, light blue tent hydrangea bouquet that I want Ashley (my maid of honor) to carry with a light green ribbon to cover the stems. She'll be wearing a simple light blue dress of her choice.

in honor of lent

Although I have only attended church at Christmas in the past year, the traditions of religion is still important to me. This year for lent Daniel will be giving up pop and I will exercise daily. I was a fit up until my last few years of high school. I was a swimmer and a dancer for more then half my life, thus far. But have been slacking majorly in the recent years. I would love to join a gym, but I rather spend the money else where and I really don't have a partner, since Daniel lives in Muncie. So to start lent and exercise on a budget, I created a youtube account. For today I found three Special K workout that ties in with Zumba. Here is the link to my YouTube workout playlist.
I think my goal is to add on videos every other day to make the workout last longer, or have tougher material. But today's was tough! Not only did I loose all prior knowledge of using my hands in feet in different directions, making me look like a funky chicken, but I was panting in the first few minutes. I am very much out of shape! So in honor of lent Daniel & I will try to be a little more healthy. Wish us luck*

Holiday Decorations

Like I mentioned in the previous blog, I plan on decorating parts of our future place with Holiday or Seasonal decorations. My future sister-in-law, Lindsay, did some decorating at her home this year with help from Avery. Check it out:

So, today we went to Target & bought 4 large heart plates, 4 small heart plates, and 4 glasses, all half price. They will look really cute on some shinny white place mats. I will try to look at Jo Anns or Michaels for some more clearance Valentines for actually decorations.

*But I had a great three days with Daniel. We will see each other on Saturday to celebrate Lindsay's birthday. Then on Sunday before Daniel heads back to BSU we are going to a Bride Event at the Montage, in the Castleton area.*

vday plans

So after sleeping in today, Daniel & I went to
Outback Steakhouse*
It was delicious*
We walked around Target, Toys r' Us, and
Best Buy.
I bought the 8th season of Scrubs.
So I've watched 5 episodes of it, while Daniel edited.
We will probably hang out, maybe get some food.

Tomorrow we are going back to Target to buy some clearance Valentine
plates & cups, to use for our future house.
One thing I have gain from my mom is adding themed decorations
for the house depending on the holiday or season!
Target already has some great spring stuff out!

Gifts for me*

Daniel themed all my presents~ France.
I got Paris pjs, he framed my art work,
two paris them shirts & a laptop desk*

valentines cards*

to the 30 some people who received a valentine card from Daniel & I- welcome to our blog!

This is year Daniel & I wanted to venture out from our parents to start sending cards. My mother has always been into Hallmark greeting cards. She rarely misses a birthday, and is always sending out cards to people ill, a death in a family, or to congratulate. So to make us a unique couple, definitely since mail is a dying art, we will be sending family members cards for special holidays & birthdays! Already this year we've had Daniel's uncle Bob & his mom. I hope the Valentine's cards weren't too odd, not too many people send them out.

I do have to say, I like how Hallmark has thought outside of the box. Not only can you add your own picture & voice, but some have a picture dvd to make! (Although I've been making picture DVDs of the past few Comic Cons).

Daniel & I haven't finalized any Valentine plans. I do already have his gift bought & wrapped!* More later...
