Don't hate me--it's been awhile since my last update.

I don't always have much to say, and sometimes I feel like nothing is going on?

Since my previous post, let's recap:

As previously mentioned, I picked out a wedding date and venue!

We'll be getting married October 20th, 2012 at Sunken Gardens . Yep, a beautiful outdoor, fall garden wedding. It will be a small affair, with a guest list of about 30-35. Exactly what I had in mind.

I also picked a photographer: Kerri McConnell Photography . She takes beautiful, modern photos. We'll be doing our engagement shoot in the next few weeks and I am thrilled to work with her! The venue and photographer were my two main priorities, so I am glad to scratch those off the list.

I even went wedding dress shopping with two coworkers last week!
 I only tried two places, and there were two potential dresses, but nothing that made me break down in tears and "say yes to the dress," but honestly? I'm not sure I am that kind of girl, anyway. Let's just say that the dresses I liked in photos look absolutely terrible on me, and the ones that I would not go for off the rack, look great. I wanted something simple and elegant, but I am starting to think that for my wedding, I am going all out (in style, not money, by any means). When will I ever get to dress up like this again??
We'll be going again in a few weeks to say the least.

Since my last post, we've also added a new member to our family!

Meet Charlie:

Abbey certainly needed a friend...

He's a maine coon mix, like Abbey, and the sweetest kitty I ever ever had...also adopted from the SPCA, of course.

The best part: They LOVE each other...

Case in point:

Okay, enough crazy cat lady talk.

As for school? It's going. This first semester (of 7!) is...boring. Not much to report.
I am officially registered for next semester: Advanced pathophysiology and Nursing Research.

Finally, I leave you with random photos from the past fews days taken on Mirza's new iPhone,
 and this amazing video of Mirza's mom working her magic in the kitchen...don't miss it! This woman is making my wedding cake!


Check out my cameo at the end:)

I have an announcement for my next post!!
