Thank you Mom for all you do for me and for helping me plan a spectacular wedding. I love you.

So much has happened since my last blog about my first bridal shower. Adam and I were lucky enough to also have a couple's shower thrown by some of his mother's friends. I still don't have any pictures from this shower. Shalie, Greg's wife (Greg is Adam's best friend), took the pictures for us and I just keep forgetting to ask her for them. She is pretty awesome at taking pictures.
Anyway, I was glad Adam was able to be there for our second shower. We were showered (again) with many gifts from family and friends. Once I have some pictures from this event, I will make a follow up post. In the meantime, thank you to everyone who made both of our showers a memorable experience. We love and appreciate all of you. :)

This summer is when my engagement began to feel "real". I guess it didn't really hit before now because I've been busy with school and other life events, and also because we've had a long engagement. I wouldn't have it any other way though. I've enjoyed the engagement and planning process.
It was nice to get to share some special time with family and friends. And of course the gifts were nice too! ;)
Here are a few pictures from the shower.
There were more pictures of everything, but these were some of my favorites.

This May my cousin, Justin, graduated from high school. I am so proud of him! It seems like just yesterday he was coming home from the hospital. (I know everyone always says this, but it's really true.) I'm an only child, but have three boy cousins. I love each of them as if they were my brothers. We all grew up in the same town and are very close.
He's decided to go to college for Ag and judging. He's good at it and really enjoys it. Here are some pics from his graduation.

I stumbled upon this quote and found it to be really inspiring. I don't know anything about the person who said it or where it came from, but it reminded me of my Grandad. He loved to look around and just enjoy the scenery and beauty around him. Wherever he was, it didn't matter, he was always happy and having a good time. Not a day goes by that I don't think of him. Whether it's a pretty sunrise, or a child swinging, he's always in my heart.
I haven't done very good about blogging lately, but I've been so busy enjoying life that I haven't really been on the computer much. So, for the few people who read my blog, I thought I would post an update.
The spring semester is over, thank goodness! Now, I'm working on the last step to obtain my Master's degree, my internship. I found out in April that I would be able to complete my first choice of internship at the Lubbock County District Attorney's Office in the Hot Check Office. I couldn't wait to get started! My adviser told me I could start as soon as my classes for the spring semester were over. After the semester ended, however, I took a week off to go home and help my mom since she had surgery. Anyway, today is the third week of my internship. It's going great and going by a lot faster than I expected.
As far as wedding planning goes, I'm still working on it and hope to blog about everything very soon!

A friend of mine posted this blog and I thought it seemed like fun! Here are the things I have done. I still have some to go, and there are some I will probably never do. :) Hope everyone is having a happy beginning to the new year!
What have you done?!
