Day One Hundred & Ninety-Eight. - Groom's Wedding Band. - Here is William's beautiful white gold wedding band that he picked up from Zales on his day off work. He wore it around the house for a few hours to see how it felt and kept complaning about how sweaty his finger was underneath the band, haha. Eventually he will get used to it!

Day One Hundred & Ninety-Seven. - Post Thunderstorm. - Just a photo snapped after a terrible thunderstorm, where I was litteraly driving 30 MPH on the freeway home. As the sun was setting everything was this orange color, it was beautiful!

Day One Hundred & Ninety-Six. - Bridal Shower Invites. - On a whim I decided to stop by Target on the way home from work and found this adorable little invitations. For a tweleve pack they were four dollars so I decided to buy two since the max amount of guests we want to invite would be 20-25. Eight dollars for invitations, what a steal! They are very "me" too, with the pink and green, and my Mom got matching coasters with a little fun game on the back. Exciting!

Day One Hundred & Ninety-Five. - Be Our Guest! - Instead of having roomates we have utilized our two bedrooms for much nicer things. One is now a guest room, shown here, and the other is a computer/office room. One I'm able to I'd like to spruce up this guest bedroom and make it look much nicer.

Day One Hundred & Ninety-Four. - Photo DVD. - Our amazing photographer sent us this little DVD of our photos for a keepsake. I loved that picked two beautiful photos and put them on the cover of the DVD. I can't wait to see what she captures for our wedding!

Day One Hundred & Ninety-Three. - Perfect Fit! - After spending almost two hours walking around the mall with no luck of my perfect wedding shoes, except a pair that was outrageously expensive, I was starting to give up hope. Maybe I was being too picky? Of course given the fact that I have small feet, size 5-6 1/2 depending on the shoe, it was rather hard to find shoes that actually fit me. I walked in DSW Shoes with the idea that I would be disappointed yet again but I was pleasantly surprised when I found these gorgeous heels. They were the only shoes that even I remotely liked and they were on sale. After putting them on and feeling comfortable in them I just had to have them, they are even better then what I had in mind to begin with!

Day One Hundred & Ninety-Two. - Handwashed Dishes. - Since the massive amount dishes would not fit in the dishwasher, we've gotten lazy, and I was tired of looking at them sitting in the sink I decided to hand wash them. GASP! I know, hand washing dishes is so forever ago but I actually had a good idea and it reminded me of more simple times as a kid. Granted, I hated washing dishes then but that's not really the point, ha. I do think that dishwashers use less water then handwashing but it just had to be done!

Day One Hundred & Ninety-One. - "Something New" - The original plan was to visit Zales to purchase William's ring for the wedding. And while we were there just browse and get ideas for what I wanted to wear with my dress. After deciding that I wanted Pearls, because they are just classy and elegant, our sales woman talked us into buying this beautiful set. I was going to purchase the cheaper of the two strands of pearls, just to save money, and then she showed us the difference between the two. I was sold, obviously.

Day One Hundred & Ninety. - Pen Pals. - We recieved this card from William's Grandmother today and it totally captures her. She has two cats that she just adores so I wouldn't have expected anything less. It is such a sweet gesture and nice of her to drop a line. Now I've got to remember to put a stamp on her card and send it out.

Day One Hundred & Eighty-Nine. - Our First R.S.V.P. - What I love about William's family is that they love me and that they are so excited for our wedding. I've never felt so welcomed by another person's family in my entire life.

Day One Hundred & Eighty-Eight. - Because He Loves Me. - After I got back from lunch I saw this beautiful boquet of flowers sitting on my desk and a little card that said "I'm sorry. Can you ever forgive me? Love, William." No, nothing bad happened but we had gotten into a little tiff the night before and whenever he does something "wrong" he uses that line and I always say "No", just joking around, so it's a inside joke between us too. This sure did brighten up my day and I love the he knew exactly what to do to make me smile and that they weren't roses. I sure am a lucky gal, huh?

Day One Hundred & Eighty-Seven. - Wedding Favors. - My Aunt went to a Bridal Expo, I wish I could have gone but I had to work, and brought back some goodies for me to look at. Since most of the booths were vendors trying to sell stuff to the brides she didn't get to have many freebies, nor was she able to take photos, but she brought back these adorable little favors. I really love these because they are simple enough to DIY and let me tell you that the candle in the little bag smells amazing. I think the Bout is a great idea and plan on figuring out how to make one of them to use at the wedding.

Day One Hundred & Eighty-Five. - Bedside Lamp. - I recieved this from my Mother after she came up for a visit. It reminds me of the lamp in the Pixar film commericals which is probably why I like it so much. And it has that "old-timey" feel to it. I'm not to sure if it actually matches the colors in our bedroom but it will do for now, just needs a light bulb!

Day One Hundred & Eighty-Four. - LoveBirds. - After many shots using our self timer we finally captured this one. I really love the darkness and the light that the window shows. I even love how our beautiful new bed looks. I guess it's those shots that you don't intend to get that really work the best.

Day One Hundred & Eighty-Two. - Puppy Puke. - Because I'm disgusting I had to share what happens when you let your eight week old puppy ride in your car for what may seem to be too long. Hey, at least she enjoyed it for a little bit, eh? But I think we will lay off on the car rides for when she's holder and doesn't have such a sensitive stomach.

Day One Hundred & Eighty-One. - Up-Do. - I've been trying new hairstyles recently since it's summer and I'm tired of always wearing it down or in a simple pony tail. I was actually going for a different style then this but I'm really happy with how it turned out. Now if I could just find a way to make it stay put all day without having to use a lot of hairspray, bobby pins perhaps?

Day One Hundred & Eighty. - Bath Time! - Finally I was able to capture a photo of her face! Isn't she adorable? Believe me this is a rare moment when she is still because she was kicking and screaming the entire time through her bath. Needless to say she hates them but I refuse to let her stink all the time.

Day One Hundred & Seventy-Nine. - Avacado's = Love. - It's amazing how food can change your mood instantly, I sound like a fat ass, especially Avacado's. They have become my new obbession and my new favorite thing to eat. I've always loved them but we've never really kept them in the house but since my room mate also loves them we are fully stocked at all times.

Day One Hundred & Seventy-Seven. - House Warming Cookies. - We recieved a USPS box and were confused since we had not ordered anything recently so I was pretty eager to find out what it was. Inside was a little box with Chocolate Chip and Rasin Cookies with a card that was welcoming us into our home from History Home Makers, which is the subdivision we live in, what a nice guesture.

Day One Hundred & Seventy-Six. - Are we in August? - For some reason I recieved the August issue of my Cosmopolitan instead of July. I suppose they want me to be prepared in advance? Oh well, at least it has my favorite actress on the cover.

Day One Hundred & Seventy-Five. - Stormy Day. - You know those days when you just want to stay home and curl up with a good book? Well, this was one of them. It rained, for the first time in a while, all afternoon and didn't stop until I got home or a little after. There were dark clouds in the sky but just a hint of sun shone out enough to make you hopeful that it would clear up.

Day One Hundred & Seventy-Four. - A Pink Lady. - After work I stopped by Target, much cheaper then PetsMart, and bought Bella some nail clippers and new toys. Because I am sick of her chewing my hands and nipping at my face and when jumpiung to play scratching my with her tiny, but very sharp, nails. Too bad it seems hopeless to think that she won't see Mommy as a chew toy any longer.

Day One Hundred & Seventy-Three. - Growing Girl. - Not only her feet getting bigger but so are her ears, she'll grow into them though I hope. She's more clumsy then before and more playful. She really has gotten a lot taller, and heavier, since we first got her. I can't wait to see what she looks like full grown.

Day One Hundred & Seventy-Two. - Our Own Celebration. - Since we didn't get to celebrate the night before, hence the fake photo below, we decided to have our own little party with just the two of us in the back yard. It's been a long time since I've just kicked back, had a few beers, and relaxed with my fiancee and I must say it was quite fun. We even stayed up past one in the AM. Shocking, I know!

Day One Hundred & Seventy-One. - Fourth of July. - I won't lie and say that I actually took this photo because I didn't but it's proof of how big of a loser I was on one my favorite Holiday's. William and I were invited, when we first moved in, to a Block Party on our street by some neighbors. Come to find out he had to work that day, which was pretty dissapointing considering it had been hanging on our fridge this entire time, and so instead of going online I stayed in with my dog and surfed the web. Lame, I know, but hopefully next year's will be better.

Day One Hundred & Seventy. - Heart Stamps. - This are the stamps that will be placed on our invitations. I wish the Post Office had some more "Wedding" type stamps but these will do. At least they involve love, right?

Day One Hundred & Sixty-Nine. - Homemade Strawberry Lemonade. - Since my room mate works at a restaurant where they serve there own strawberry lemonade I was dying to try it. So, we went to the store and got our own and it tasted amazing. After pureeing the strawberry's in the blender we just added as much strawberry's to our already lemonade as we wanted. The best thing was that there was little chunks of strawberry's which was a plus.

Day One Hundred & Sixty-Eight. - Breathetaking View. - This is probably one of my favorite shots I've taken recently. With that being said I love that I can stand in my back yard and watch the sun go down. I'm obsessed with how the sky looks these days and I'm more then excited that this shot came out so well, I'm in awe of it.
