Here comes the BRIDE!!

MARCH 17th 2012.. Is the BIG DAY!!!

WHOO HOOO is it March yet? If you haven't already heard David and I are getting married!! He proposed to me at the top of the Eiffel Tower while we were on vacation in June. I had hoped and wondered and speculated before we left, but I never really thought it was going to actually happen. I talked myself out of it.. didn't want to get my hopes up. Never EVER imagined David would be brave enough to carry my beautiful ring all the way over there! But he did.. and it was WONDERFUL!! My ring couldn't be any more perfect.. I look at it all the time and can't imagine wanting anything different. I never knew what I wanted in a ring.. but this is it! It is timeless and elegant and everything I could ever wish for. In a little more than five months we will be Mr. and Mrs. Schimelpfenig. I can't wait to take his name.. all 13 letters of it. I have done alot of the wedding stuff, just have a few more things to plan, and little detail sort of stuff. I ordered my dress and it will be here in January. My dress is everything I could have hoped for also. It was such an easy and wonderful process, picking it out. I don't know how that happened but I am so grateful it did. I was expecting to hate everything.. I was expecting the be the girl going from bridal shop to bridal shop pulling my hair out.. but it was exactly the opposite. Well until next time..

Dreaming of Europe...

Is it May 28th yet???

Ughhh I can NOT wait to head out! We are heading to Europe in exactly 6 work weeks! Yes I am totally counting biggest fear? What shoes to bring??? I have one really good pair.. but not quite sure on the other ones. But anyways besides my clothes problems.. We are flying into Amsterdam.. then heading to Belgium and then France and on to Switzerland, then up through Germany! We are going to see sooo much in two and a half weeks. It is going to be like the amazing race. I can't even imgaine how it is going to go down... David has me on the train by 6 A.M. some days..who gets up that early on vacation??? Not me!! Oh well.. gotta make the most of our time I suppose. Does it make me weird if I already want to pack my bags??

Spring is coming...

Hello Friends, Spring is coming are you ready? Super bowl is over.. days are getting longer.. I am starting to plan my summer vacations... This is the time of year when I get antsy! It isn't quite spring, not really winter..and makes me dream of summer time of the year! Valentines Day is Monday... got any plans? We are going out on Saturday night to an undisclosed location. Since David gets off pretty late on weekdays we decided to go out Saturday night instead.. and I will make him a Valentines dinner on Monday night at his house when he gets off work! Gosh.. I don't really have to much to say, except I got to looking at other peoples blogs this afternoon and realized mine is sorely lacking. Ihave nothing clever or cool to say.. not much going on.. no good pics... Just ME! So thats all yah get!
Have a fabulous Valentines Day.. give your Honey extra smooches.. and eat some chocolate!
Until next time!

Snow Walking

Can you guess what I got for Christmas? Snowshoes!! I didn't know they were so fun... and to be honest I didn't even know I wanted them.. but now that I have used them twice, I love them! Happy New Year everyone! This Christmas was another good one. Lots of food, fun and family. For New Years we headed to a Winterhawks game at the Rose Garden... pretty low key but nice. They did a midnight balloon drop with money in some of them... of course neither of us got one with money. But thats to be expected right! Then we headed up to Mt. St. Helens and went snow shoeing the next day. We went around cold water lake.. that is the pic above. This place is heaven, we have been there once before when it wasn't snow covered and it is such a nice hike, and it was even funner to snowshoe around. My next thing is to get out on the lake in a kayak. I WANT A KAYAK BAD! But I have to get a rack to carry it around with first. So what does 2011 hold for me? I am not sure, I have a few things I am hoping for in 2011 but I will keep those to myself. I am sure to have some adventures... and vacations! Until next time!
