All married and settled in!

I am sorry that it has been so long since i have given an update but things have been rather hectic.

On July 11,2009 we finally got married! It was beautiful, everything went as planned. Neither of us puked! :) I must say it was the second best day of my life and I could not be happier and I am pretty possitive Scott would agree!

The honeymoon was also AMAZING! We went to Gatinburg, TN for a week and it was beautiful. We hiked part of the App. Trail and we went and walked around Gatinburg and of course played putput and I almost beat Scott once but he won everytime. I will beat him again one day! We also went into Pigeon Forge and ate the best dinner ever at the Alamo we highly recommend it.

Once back from the honeymoon we had a couple days for laundry then it was off to Crossroads summer camp with the youth. It was amazing we got to see God work in the lives of our youth in many ways.

When we got back from Crossroads we realized that He was preparing our hearts for a change of plans. We found out that the loan didn't come through for us to pay his tuition on time because I couldnt prove I would have a job in September. So we had to quickly come up with a plan B and we decided to stay here and save up until spring semester. A couple in our church have graciously let us rent out their basement apartment in Statesville. So now once I pass my Mblex exam and start working and with him working we will be able to save up and not need a loan in the spring which is awesome!

We moved in on August 2 and officially got settled in the next day it is very nice we love it. It's nice to have our own space and ease our way into the real world now it won't be so hard when we move to Raleigh!

So all in all God has greater plans than we do and we just have to keep remembering to trust Him and it will all work out! And so far married life is ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!!

So this weekend we went to Boone to get away. It was amazing. Mountains are our favorite place to get away it's so beautiful, breath taking, and humbling. Our goal or dream is to one day live in the mountains. We got to watch the sunset over the Blue Ridge Parkway that was the most beautiful thing that I have ever seen in my life. The thing we talked about all weekend was how can people not believe in our awesome God after they seen things like that.
As far as our wedding planning is going we have picked out our invitations and are working on getting those done. We still have to meet about flowers and our photos and tell them what we want and all that stuff. We have started collecting boxes. As soon as the weather gets hot and stays hot we will start packing up winter clothes and going through things to sell at our yard sale that we are going to have before we move.
We only have like 3months until the big day and we are both really excited and cant wait!

Getting ready for the big day!

So the big day is less than 4months away but we already have so much done and yet so much left to do. We officially have a place to live; it's small but it will do for a first apartment. We still have to register for gifts which we have been putting off way too long as well as finalize things like a reception hall and flowers! haha those to should have already been done. Within the next month or so we will begin packing so anyone who would like to get rid of some boxes we would gladly take them! I believe that once packing begins it will really hit us both that we will be moving 3 hours away from all that we know. In a way I am really excited to be moving that far because I kind of get to start fresh but I am also scared because I'm leaving all I've ever known kinda. But the one thing I am sure of is that I cannot wait to marry the love of my life and go on this journey with him!
