Happy Halloween!!!!

Today was a pretty low key day, Jon wasn't feeling to great after all the fun he had the night before so we just hung out and watched movies, then Alyson, Andrew and Ayden came over. It was so cute seeing Ayden in his Halloween costume, he was a robot and it was adorable! They hung out for a while and we put on a movie for Ayden to watch and fed him lots of candy. It was a very fun low key night, which is perfect since we have to work tomorrow! I was actually kinda sad that we didn't get any trick or treaters, but its alright, more candy for Jon and i :)

Ducks / Halloween Party

Today was a very eventful day! We had people over for the Duck game, which started at 5, then during halftime, Holly, Heather, Corry and I went upstairs to start getting ready for the Halloween Party we were going to that night. Its a lot of fun getting ready with a bunch of girls, Janet then came over and helped us get ready too. The Ducks ended up winning, which doesn't surprise anyone, :) and that made for an even better night. Once the game was over, Jon and Ivan got ready too. Janet was a Sailor, Holly a strawberry, Heather a pirate, i was a clown, Ivan was some sort of 70s porn star, Matt was a banana, and Jon was a clown also. 1st we went to hotseat to see everyone and say hi to Alyson's because she was working. Then we went to the party, which was in Tigard. I love going to this Halloween party because its so fun and no drama, this is the 3rd year we have gone to it. Jon was living up the clown costume and being as ridicules as possible. We all had a lot of fun!

Halloween Shopping

Jon and I got our last min costume accessory's today after work, i cannot wait until tomorrow when i can dress up like a clown! I'm so excited. I also got some super cute hello kitty slippers that i love! I was very excited about them, and they are so comfy. Jon and I didn't do anything tonight, we just watched a movie, Paranormal Activity, its such a good movie, especially during Halloween :)

I said YES to the dress!!!!

I had to be up early this morning to meet up with my mom and sisters. We went back to Charlotte's because i wanted my mom’s approval on the dress i will wear on my big day. I tried on the 2 dresses that i really liked the last time i went and then i also tried on a few others. There was a designer from "Say yes to the dress" at Charlotte's today and she picked out a dress that she wanted me to try on. It was a fun dress to try on but it definitely wasn't a Wendy dress. It was too much of a sexy dress, which is not me! Anyway, i 1st tried on the fun dress that i really liked. The whole bottom of the dress is big flowers and its soo pretty. My mom liked it and thought it looked nice but she wasn't in love with it, my sisters felt the same way. I then tried on my other favorite dress and my mom loved it, it had a big long train and it is very traditional, but i still wasn’t sure if it was the one. I just feel like the traditional dress is too safe for me, and i want something that's going to stand out and set me apart. I then tried on a few others but the whole time, i knew that it was going to be either the traditional one or the fun one. I decided that i would try them on again. I tried on the fun one 1st and instantly, my mom and sisters realized that this was the dress. My mom could tell how happy I looked and felt in it, she actually almost cried! :) But yea, the fun one is totally me, its fun and funky but still princess and it’s definitely the perfect dress for a vineyard wedding. The only downfall on this is that it’s an expensive dress, but my mom and i compromised and she paid for half and I'm going to pay for the other half when my dress arrives. I'm so happy with my dress; i cannot wait to wear it on my big day!!!!

Dog Park

Jon and I took Miley for a walk at a nearby Frisbee Golf course, which also has walking trials. Before we headed to the park, Jon bought me a Carmel Apple Spice, and believe me, it was a hassle to find one! 1st we went to the drive through Starbucks by our place and they were out of apple juice, then we decided to go to the Starbucks inside boarders and they were out too! So we had to drive over to Safeway and we were lucky to find it there, my goodness! I didn't know that the caramel apple spice's we so popular! We only went to 3 different Starbucks because they are all within a block of each other and they were on our way to the park. Anyway, Miley really enjoyed herself at the park, she was going CRAZY! She didn't know where to look/sniff/or walk! I thought the walk would have tired her out but nope, once we got home she began running laps around the couch. I need to seriously record her doing this because its sooo freaking funny, she just has so much energy! I think we’ll do the same thing with her tomorrow, since we are having some really nice fall weather at the moment.
We also watched "The Human Centipede" last night, and OMG! That was horrible! 1st of all the acting was really bad and 2nd it was just stupid! Jon and I were expecting a scary creepy movie but it wasn't at all. Yes, the concept human centipede sounds disgusting and creepy, which it was, i just think that the movie was badly made and they could have done a lot more with it. That movie was a waste of our time.

More Baking :)

Jon and I didn't do much today, but i did decide to bake some more muffins, this time they were cinnamon muffins and they turned out really well. Just another yummy treat for Jon to enjoy. I plan on taking one with me each morning for breakfast.

Another Lazy Sunday

Jon and I slept in today and it felt so good! After we got up we met up with Mike and Jessica at Old Chicago for some football and .50 cent wings. Jon and I love going to Old Chicago on Sunday’s for their wings. After we got home, Mike came over to watch some more football and i was upstairs caught up on "Birdezillas" I LOVE that show, it cracks me up and makes me want to make sure that i DO NOT behave like that the week before my wedding. Back to work tomorrow!

Dinner & Date Night

Jon was hurting today from all the fun he had last night at our engagement party so he slept for most of the morning and afternoon. While he slept i went to Patty's house to pick up Miley because Eli babysat her for us. Miley gets pretty worn out when she spends the night at Patty's house because she is surrounded by kids that all want to play with her, she was so cute on the drive home. I let her sit in the front seat and she slept most of the way home. Once we got off the freeway she came over and sat on my lap while i drove. I love her so much, I'm so happy that we adopted her! Once Jon finally got up, we decided to go to California Pizza Kitchen for dinner because we haven't been there in so long, and also to go to a movie. We decided to watch Jackass 3D, it was a pretty funny movie, some parts were pretty gross but it’s expected. We also went to the Sweet Factory to get some candy for the movie and i got a really cute Hello Kitty lunch pale, I'm very happy that i got it :)

Mr. & Mrs.

Joe and Kim came over tonight to say hi because they are unable to make it to our engagement party tomorrow. They brought us a really cute gift, 1st the bag the gift came in was a pink princess castle with the Disney princesses on it, which of course i love! But they also got us each a mug that says "Mr." on Jon's and "Mrs." on mine. They are really cute and i cannot wait until I sip some hot chocolate out of mine :)

I made some poppy seed muffins tonight for Jon, and they turned out really good. I love to bake and cook and I'm starting to notice that I'm getting a lot better at both, which makes me very happy! I remember when i was a kid i always said that i was never going to cook and i would have someone else cook for me and now, i love it! Unless I'm really tired, i would rather make dinner for Jon and i rather than going out to eat. Now i just have to get good at cooking Mexican food and i will be set!

Childhood Pictures

Jon and I went to my mom’s house after work today to go through my baby pictures because Alyson asked me for some for our engagement party this weekend. It was so much fun looking through all of the pictures; i didn't realize how many my mom had. It kinda made me sad seeing the ones of me and my dad because things are so different now, that he won’t even be at my wedding. But i did find many and i put aside all of the pictures that i liked so that we can use them for our slide show on the wedding day. I cannot wait!!!

Also, Jon got a job offer from his regional manager to move to Seattle and become manager of his own office. This is a very big decision and a huge opportunity for Jon. I told Jon that i was fine moving if that’s what he wanted to do. I’m scared to move but also very excited for Jon. Jon is meeting with his manager on Monday to go over all the detail to make sure that this is what he wants to do. We’ll see what happens!

Wine Tasting

The Reeds came over today and took us wine tasting. It was really fun! We sat outside and drank some wine and just hung out. After that we went back home and i asked Lauren to be a bridesmaid. She was very excited about this, and the whole time we were hanging out she kept hinting towards our wedding and asking if she was going to be one, so i was giving her a hard time and wouldn't tell her if she was going to be in the wedding or not. Lauren also bought me a really nice wedding planner, which i was very excited about because I’ve been wanted one.

We also called Zenith this morning and spoke with the owner and let them know that we want to book our wedding with them! Jon pulled out the credit card and we put down the security deposit to hold our date! WERE GETTING MARRIED JULY 24TH 2011!!!!
I cannot wait!!! I’m soooo excited!

More Wedding planning

We had an early morning today; we had to be at Willamette Valley Vineyard by 9:30 to check out their wedding venue. We got there a little late but were able to check out the space. The space DID NOT compare to Zenith! After we left the place we realized that Zenith is the place we want to get married at, so we decided not to go look at any other venues. Once we got back into town i dropped Jon off at David’s house so that he could watch the Duck game while i met up with Holly, Janet and Alyson at Charlotte's so i can try out some wedding dresses. It was a fun time with the girls, i tried on quite a few dresses and i think i found the one that i want! Now i just need to show it to my mom and see what she says. After the dresses, i went back to David’s to meet up with Jon and watch the rest of the Duck game, which the ducks happened to win again and now the Ducks are 2nd in the nation :) After the game Jon and I headed home, but we decided to stop at Macy's to register :) That was fun but Jon was a little overwhelmed with everything so we didn't get much done. On the way home I talked to my mom and she said that she will buy me my wedding dress which makes me very happy because i wasn't expecting her to buy it for me. I'm so excited with everything and that we are finally making some decisions!

Date Night

Jon and I went to the Old Spaghetti Factory for our date night dinner tonight. OSF is our restaurant, that's where we went on our 1st valentine’s day back in '08, so we wanted to go back since we got engaged and we also had to celebrate Jon's promotion and my raise :) It was nice to have a fun dinner with Jon and we also went over some wedding stuff, because we are checking out 3 more venues tomorrow. Our hearts are set on Zenith vineyard but we want to check out other places just to be sure. After dinner we went home and watched "Couples Retreat" it was a funny movie and Miley was a happy girl cuddling on the couch with us :)

(This picture is from back in 2008, on our 1st Valentines day)

Zenith Vineyard

Jon and I went to visit Zenith Vineyard today to check it out and see if we want it as our wedding venue. Oh my goodness! I fell in love with the place!!! I’ve had my eye on this place since day 1; i just think that it’s so beautiful and romantic, so we finally went and checked it out. We both fell in love with the place; i think this is the one! The place was specially designed for weddings and the lady that designed it did a very good job, i can even have my horse and carriage!!! Jon and I are going to look at 3 other places on Saturday and make out final decision on Sunday, but I'm pretty sure we already have our minds made up. I cannot wait to have my date set and my venue!

Beauty & the Beast

Beauty and the Beast came out on blue ray today, and I'm lucky enough to have a wonderful fiancĂ© that went out to buy it for me :) I was very excited, because this is my favorite childhood movie and i only have it on VHS and it’s really old, so Jon was sweet enough to get me the upgrade :) He also got himself a new video game that he has been talking about for weeks. So we were both happy campers. Jon ended up moving his PS3 upstairs so that he can play his new game in bed, we watched Beauty and the Beast until i feel asleep, and then he put his game in and played for a while. What a life! lol

Chi Chi Is 18!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today is Michelle's 18th birthday, i cannot believe it, my lil sister is an adult now. Time sure dose go by fast. Jon and I went over to Patty's house today to have lunch with them and wish Michelle a happy birthday. After that we headed home to get ready for the duck game that was going to be on @ 5. Holly and Janet came over and so did David and 2 of his friends. It was such a great game to watch and we won! So now the Ducks are #3 in the nation, which is very exciting! After the game, the girls and i went upstairs to change because we decided to go downtown, it was a lot of fun but i ended up spending a lot more money than i had planned, not good. We went to the dirty and ran into Correy and then the boys came and met up with us. It was a very long night!

Beer Pong

Jon found a U of O beer pong table on craigslist today so he called the person who posted the ad and set up a time to stop by after work to check it out. We checked it out and really liked it so we arranged for them to drop it off at our place that night. They stopped by around 7 and dropped off the table, and then Jon called Mike and Jessica and they came over and we played some beer pong and then went to Old Chicago. It was fun, but I'm not a huge fan of playing beer pong, i get bored after a while, but i have no problem playing 1 game :) Now Jon is ready for the Duck game tomorrow!
