Just some updates.

Hello!

First of all, It finally hit me! I am really getting married! I'm not sure when this hit me, but it hasn't felt "real" until now. It's quite the feeling. It's kind of a mixture between anxiousness, excitement and intimidation. I am going to be living with drew, in our own apartment (hopefully, we're still looking for one), paying our own bills and learning how to live life together. It will be such a new adventure. I'm not sure what it is going to be like, but I am just excited for it to begin! The wedding plans are going just swell. I didn't realize how many little things planning a wedding entails.. It includes things like food for two receptions, flowers, clothing for myself and Drew, clothing for our parents and siblings, decorations for two receptions, wedding dress alterations, wedding registry, honeymoon plans, scheduling the temple, guest lists, bridal shower, engagement pictures, bridals, wedding invitations, etc. (I think you get the picture.) My mom has been an incredible help! However, at times it can still be a bit overwhelming. We are knocking things out one thing at a time though. Life is SO good. One thing i am completely at peace with is my decision to marry Drew. I don't know how I got someone so great, but I KNOW I am going to have a happy, blessed life with Drew Wright.

Secondly, Trying to find a house is a nightmare! We thought we found the perfect place, it was a two bedroom, spacious, with washer/dryer hookups and it was a great deal. The only thing holding us back from putting a deposit down was they will only hold it for us for 30 days. Since we can't start moving in until after the semester ends, I was waiting until June 22nd or so to put a deposit down. Everyday I checked to make sure it was still available and things were definitely looking up! The 22nd was only a week away, then it was ours! Next thing I know, Drew calls me to inform me that they had sold it. Our dream apartment was gone! They told him they might have another one opening up at the end of June or beginning of July but they weren't sure. (We've heard that one a few times). So here we are... back to square one. I am about ready to give up on housing. The weather is probably nice enough we can just fix up a cardboard box and put it in the middle of Porter Park. That would work at least until winter. I imagine our house in Porter Park looking something like this:
We could have and address, a mailbox and everything! But really, if you have any tips on apartment hunting, please let me know! I am open to just about anything right now!

Finally, Drew and I got all our engagement pictures back! I was so incredibly happy to receive the CD in the mail! I spent the whole morning looking at the pictures over and over again. It's fun to see our our photographer captured our love. We really are so in love with one another and it shows in our pictures. Now the hard part is choosing just a few to use for our invitations. Just another thing to add to the To-Do list. These are a few of my new favorites:

 As you can see, Life is wonderful! I am still up here at school. Working hard, well.. I am trying to work hard. For some reason I keep getting distracted and all I can think about it getting married. Drew is down in Inkom working really LONG days. I can't tell you how grateful I am that I am marrying such a hard worker. He will really do anything it takes to provide for me. What a blessing! I hope life is going well for all of you!
