         I have sad news. Travis has gone back to the homeland of Tyler, TX. I am still in our other homeland of Fort Worth, TX. Two great places, just not so great when we are apart from one another. We shall soon be reunited again.  Speaking of, I still am in complete shock that the semester is starting on Tuesday. I feel like I have been in a complete fairytale this whole winter break. I fear as though I am about to get slapped in the face with reality. It might hurt. I am taking on the task of taking the most classes I ever have in my college career. Nervous is an understatement. But once this semester is over with I can put on a cap and gown and walk across a stage, shake a few hands, and get a cream colored paper in my hands. Pretty amazing. Can't believe I will be graduating. The Lord has brought me far in life!
       Yesterday I went to this super unique store in Fort Worth called Old Home Supply. It was filled with old housing furnishings. Bathtubs, stoves, lighting fixtures, etc... It was rad. I found a wonderfully old deco table lamp. It's maroon colored. I still have to find the perfect shade for it, for it did not come with a cover for it's body. Thought it was a must as I continue to add to our collection! I think a festive lamp shade is in order. I even haggled. That's always fun!

Pit Bulls and Stripes

                                              Great day! RECEPTION VENUE IS BOOKED! Praise the Lord!
                             And my momma and I bought a sweater for our pit bull cause of the chilly weather. 
                                                                                   She's a proud pup now. 
Abby in her new sweater. Travis loves Abby.
                                                  Travis got new boots from his grandparents. "Land man" as he says. 
                                                                                           Real estate talk.
New boots! same cute guy.
                           Lovely dinner with Robin, Tucker, and Travis.
                                                         Chinese food + good company = wonderful night.
We're getting married.

              Until next time,

Adding to the Collection

       Soooo.....Travis and I found our first piece of furniture! A terrific couple from our church in Fort Worth is selling an entertainment center. Sadly this very wonderful couple is moving to Mississippi. We will miss them, but are pumped about adding this furniture to our little collection. Thanks Matt and Liz!!
        The wedding planning is going wonderfully. Yesterday we met with a reception venue that we all really liked. That was a huge relief off our shoulders! Still haven't made the final decision, but it's headed in that direction for sure. Following that meeting, we met with the florist. That was helpful to really picture the whole event. yeahhhh! It's coming together. 
         Classes start back up on Tuesday. Last semester! Holla. will be a very busy semester. Classes, work, and wedding planning. By God's grace it will go smoothly! Trying to juggle all these things could get nuts. I have faith that it will work out.

We are looking forward to what the Lord has in store for us next! The planning is going wonderfully! Keep us in your prayers!

Until next time,

Number 1

             I figured this was a good time in my life to start a blog. So much is changing in my life currently, that I thought it needed to be recorded. All these things have been wonderful and joyous. As of right now, I have one more semester in my undergrad career. I just turned 23 years old and I am now planning my very own wedding! So long have Travis and I waited to plan this special day and now we finally get the chance to do just that! 
  I am going to try and get a hang of this blogging thing. We'll see how it goes!

Genesis 2:24
For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.
