Engagement Anniversary

Do Engagement Anniversaries really exist???  hahaha  *shrug *  In my life they do!!! =)

Exactly 1 year ago today~ Markel proposed =)  It was the Saturday after Thanksgiving and well…I was BEYOND shocked.  I was a zombie all day trying to process it and at night~ Markel threw the BIGGEST surprise party ever.  I am so lucky to have found my lobster (Friends reference) and it’s been the most amazing 5.5 year journey~~~

I have the greatest friends in the entire world TOO!!  they were all waiting for us at the bar that Markel and I met at with signs, flowers, balloons, and drinks in tow!

1 year ago today was the most magical and fun-filled day.  I’ve never been so surprised in my whole life~ and I’m so thankful for Markel, my family, his family and all of our friends.

THINK PINK: Happy Valentine’s Day!

Man, this year V-day really snuck up on me.  I’m usually prepared with plans but this year…nada.  Work has been REALLY crazy, my  the wedding planning…blah.  So every spare moment I get I usually try to sleep or watch a show that I have in my crazy DVR cue.

Anyway, Valentine’s Day (for me) is a day of all pink, girlie everything,  and all adorable things.  Here is a fun picture collage (photodump really) of things I found online =)  (mainly pinterest)

Wedding Save The Date: Party Rockin’

After a few months of research and brain storming…Markel and I have created and sent our Save the Dates!  We had really grandiose plans of taking it at the beach, in the snow, or even doing a super glam shoot.  In the end?  We took a random picture on New Year’s Eve in a semi-intoxicated state. =P  But how gorgeous did this photo turn out??  And the balloons, GENIUS right??  HAHA  They were part of our room decorations that I “borrowed”.

Oh, and the BEST part of this pic below?  It was completely edited (text and all) with my cell phone (Samsung Galaxy 3S).  LOL

Markel and I have had such an amazing year and journey together.  I can’t wait to venture into this new year, new life, and new marriage with my Best Friend!!  ❤  I can’t believe it, but our wedding is in 108 days!! eeeeeep! xoxoxo
