Lets Look At Pictures of MKH + CWG...

Happy Thursday and Happy Eve of New Year's Eve... I am up super late tonight (its 1015 in KY and I feel like a rebel because its SO past my bedtime...) because I don't have to go to work tomorrow and I couldn't be more excited. My long lost BFF Emmy is coming into town tomorrow and we are going lunch and to get our nails done and catch up. I haven't seen Emmy since her housewarming party back in October.

Unintentional Matchy-Matchy....

The FIN and I also have a dinner date tomorrow night. It will be out last date of 2010. I don't feel like its time for NYE, but then again I wasn't prepared for it to be Christmas so whose to judge? I feel like I have been somewhat busy this week trying to get things back together after the Holiday and being away.  I was super excited that I had a nice surprise waiting for me in my mailbox when I returned home. Alas, my our engagement discs arrived while I was in TX. I knew this was waiting because Mommy TX received her disk in the mail while I was visiting and I told myself that I wasn't going to peek until I had ample time to go over all of the pictures. So when I got home this afternoon I settled myself in my chair with a sweet tea and started going over the shots (by "going over" I mean zooming in and out and trying to imagine the different pictures in frames...). Don't fret I hadn't forgotten what they had looked like because every so often I would "re-look" at the proof section of the photographers website. I have added my "top" favorites below. There were so many to choose from I narrowed it down the best that I could!

For your viewing pleasure... 

I couldn't be more pleased with how the photos turned out. We were so fortunate enough to be able to work with Cameron Powell out of Nashville. He will be doing my bridal portraits, our wedding day, and he will be putting together the slide show that will be shown at the rehearsal dinner. I can't wait to see how everything else will turn out.

Its now almost 11pm EST and I am about to turn into a pumpkin. Hopefully the MKH + CWG photo montage hasn't scared anyone and I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe NYE!!!!

2011 is almost here!

Christmas 2010 Recap....

Happy Tuesday!

Its still cold in KY and I am counting down the days until warmer weather arrives. I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I am unfortunately back at work this week but I only have two more days until I am off for NYE and it cant get here soon enough. Work has been boring at best the past few days. It was so hard to get back into a routine after being off work for almost 10 days. The FIN and I traveled back to visit with his family for the week before Christmas. I came back to KY by myself to spend my last unmarried Christmas at home with my family. I called my dear friend Emmy while I was waiting in the airport and she asked me if I felt funny about this being my "last Christmas as MKH." At the time it didn't strike me as funny because Emmy always asks "those type of questions," and I always laugh but this time I was like, "OMG, MKH will be MHG next Christmas!" (Granted, I don't always speak about myself in the 3rd person, but you get the idea...). MKH is growing up... hahah

In preparation for my upcoming name change Mommy TX also gifted me a few goodies with my new monogram for Christmas. I have tucked them away and have told myself they cant be used until after June 25, 2011. Since I am a fool for anything monogrammed I have been trying to slowly replace my MKH garb with MHG and these make-up storage pieces will work nicely! Overall it was a wonderful Christmas and I am super excited for 2011.

Keeping up with my photo rule I thought that I would share a few photos from Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Christmas Eve with Mal...

Grandkids &  Grandparents...

Christmas Day... please notice my over-sized ski jacket... It was SO COLD!

I have a wonderful airline story that I will share tomorrow!

Merry Christmas...

Merry Christmas from MKH.... Its snowing (about 6 inches) in KY and it is the first white Christmas in 17 years! I forgot to post our first Christmas card when they arrived, but I thought that it would still bring some Holiday cheer today!

Christmas Card 2010... Special Thanks to Mostly MEllen

I hope everyone has a blessed day with family and friends! I hope that everyone remembers the true reason for the season. I was reminded of this verse last night as we read the Christmas story at my Grandmother's house.

And the angel answered her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy–the Son of God. (LUKE 1:35).

Merry Christmas and I hope that Santa was nice to everyone!

What I'm Loving Wednesday!

Well its Wednesday and I have been ready for the weekend since Sunday afternoon. I hope everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday and is looking forward to the upcoming weekend! Being that its Wednesday and I haven't blogged yet this week I thought something fun and easy was needed. For the past few Wednesdays I have noticed that some of my bloggy blog buddies have been posting specifically on "What They're Loving." So to keep up with the pack I thought I would join in...

On this Wednesday, December 08, 2010 I am loving the following things (in no specific order...)!

I'm loving that my dear friend Caitlin D. has started her own blog. I am so glad that she has joined me in writing this online daily (almost) ramblings. Check her out over at I Could Write A Book,  and you will be loving her in no time!

I'm loving that all of my laundry is DONE and all my t-shirts, towels, and delicates have been put away in their proper home... success

I'm loving our wedding website, check it out here.

I'm loving that the FIN and I had a lovely weekend and enjoyed a nice afternoon watching the UK vs. UNC Basketball game at Harry's (our favorite place...). I'm loving even more that I tried a new dessert and yes I was that person at the restaurant that took a picture of my plate (no flash of course...) I am however NOT loving that UK lost to UNC...

Pure goodness...

I'm loving that I went back to the dentist today (for the second time in two weeks) and I made the appointment to get my teeth whitened. The only down side is that no colored liquids (as in my beloved Sonic Sweet Tea) allowed after I begin the treatments. The hygenist told me that I would be sleeping in the trays 3-4 times a week. I was secretly thinking what happens if I swallow some of the bleach, will the bleach stain my pillowcases, and will I have terrible morning mouth when I wake up? I didn't ask her any of the questions I was asking myself, I thought of more questions as I was driving home. I wrote them down on a notecard so I will be sure to ask when I go back for my impressions. Don't worry they are purely dental related and nothing to do with bad breath or the possibility of stained linens.

I'm loving that next week is my last week of work in 2010. I am taking the week of Christmas off and the FIN and I are heading to TX to spend some time with his family. I will be back a few days before Christmas so I can travel to my hometown and spend the rest of the holiday with my family. 

Christmas 2009 in TX...

I'm loving that our Engagement pictures turned out so well. I finished addressing our Christmas cards last night (I know... I'm a bit behind, but only by a few days) and I thought that I would just thumb back through them and I picked out several "favorites." My current "favorite is below! I will post the slideshow of engagement pictures once all of them come back from the photographer...

Love, Love, Love

I'm loving that I am getting my hair done next week. My roots are extra gross, and my eyebrows are out of control.  My monthly hair appointment (you can set your calendar by my consistency) is something that I look froward to from the time that I walk out the door of the salon until I walk back in four weeks later. 

I'm also loving that it is now bedtime!
I hope everyone has had a wonderful Wednesday!
