Updates from the West...

I got this photo from Nicole at Kopplin's from when she was in Seattle for Coffee Fest. I miss Milstead! He and I would go out every once in a while and have a few beers, and this generally the face we would have.

Plannin' a Weddin' at Light Speed

So, here are the updates from last posted/from when I proposed:
  • We have a place reserved for the ceremony and reception.
  • We have food picked out for the event.
  • The wedding cake is planned and accounted for.
  • Angela's dress and all the bride's maid's dresses are bought, and fit well.
  • Flowers are ready to go.
  • Found a wedding photographer.
  • Had our engagement pictures taken.
  • We registered at three places.
  • Blocked out space at a hotel for guests.
  • Found a Honeymoon spot and got it booked.
  • Found a place to live and have the deposit on it.
  • Music is reserved for the wedding and ready to go.
There have been a lot of things falling into place so well, praise God, I don't know why more people don't plan a wedding two months out? The only things we're really working hard on now is the invitations (we're waiting on paper) and my kilt/s. I'm working on finding more of the paper today, and the kilts just have to be made. Well, if my bank would just allow international purchases this would be a lot easier. Then Libby and Abby are so graciously making the kilts for the grooms party. Yeah, so all in all, we've done a ton of work in about four weeks. In truth, I don't think this would have been such a reality if God wasn't so good, Angela wasn't such a good planner, and our parents weren't helping. Yeah, we did all this in four weeks, pretty wild.

River Otters

Ange and I on a walk, stopping to "look at the river".

Happy News!

I have some great news for you all! Angela Goede and I are getting married!! We've been real busy with lots of new things to do for this event... because we've never done this sort of thing before. I've already told a few people but I thought it was funny that people I've already told actually started congratulating me once I had my status on Facebook changed. The happy date is December 12th of this year. We're aiming for a small intimate wedding which we're pretty sure will happen. We've registered at Crate and Barrel, Target and at R.E.I.

Thank you to everyone for your support, I'll try and be on here more to update.
