Meet Ashby. Our six week old Golden Doodle. Her birthday is 12/10/10, just a few days between mine and Loren's. When we went to pick her up, she immediately ran to Loren! ...And she's been there ever since. She loves us already! :)Meal-time has been a little bit of an adjustment, but we are very excited and she has been doing very well since she has come home with us. Since Loren is in Pell City working she hasnt gotten to see her very much but we are trying as much as we can through FaceTime. We chat before she goes to work in the mornings, and then again at night before Ashby's bedtime.
Ashby's already a super smart puppy! She's naturally learned/taught herself to fetch.

And in the process of learning to run, she hops around like a little kangaroo!

Keep checking back for updates on Ashby and our wedding details. While I'm here playing with our sweet puppy and working away the day, Loren's back home working, planning our wedding and getting ready to take her boards!

Wedding Wednesday

Since the new year is upon us, and the four month countdown has started, I thought I would do a "Wedding Wednesday" post each week. It may be a piece of trivia or information I thought was interesting, or a small blip into our planning/implementation process of our own wedding!

For this week, I thought I would enlighten you to the rest of a little poem we all grew up hearing:

::Something Old,
::Something New,
::Something Borrowed,
::Something Blue,
::And a silver sixpence in her shoe

How many of you knew there was another line to that sweet little piece of tradition? Go here to read about it!!!

4 Months Away

The excitement has truly set in!
The new year is upon us and so is the year of our wedding!
We've had a few twists and turns in the planning journey, but I think we've gotten it all figured out!
Stay tuned!!!
*May 14, 2011*
We are B.E.Y.O.N.D. excited :)
... and yes, I am almost to the point of jumping on my bed... in my dress...

2011 Wintry Mix in the South

It's happened...
The lovely "wintry mix" everyone ran around claiming we were going to experience, happened...
As of last night, we had gotten almost three inches. From what I could tell earlier this morning and throughout today, we haven't really gotten much more than we had last night.
Sorry for the horrendous picture. It was about eleven o'clock last night when I decided to document the snow and my phone wasn't cooperating. So... I whipped out my Nikon pocket camera and then just took a picture of a picture :)
Hope everyone's enjoyed their "snow day"! Whether you are home from work or school, be lazy... take advantage... these little adventures don't happen often down here (and that's probably a good thing).
