I've got some sort of respiratory junk again!  But even with the cough, I'm going to frostbite with my daddy and my future hubby.  Frostbite is a big rock crawling event for big SUV's.  Here's a picture from three or four years ago when I went with Dad by myself.

That's me in like 8 layers, including a full rain suit and huge puff coat over that.  It was wet and really muddy that year.  It looks like this year may be a lot nicer than that year.  Keep you fingers crossed for me though!  We are going to try geo-caching too, so it should be an interesting day overall.  Here's another picture of what the Willy's looks like without as much mud.
I'll try to take lots of pictures of our little adventure.

Valentine's Day: Zero Dollars spent

So Farmboy and I decided we'd do nothing for V-day.... then I realized I didn't like that idea very much.  hehe  Instead we decided to do something sweet for each other without spending any money.  I made a little collage card from magazine cutouts.  He wrote me this sweetest letter I've read!
He listed fifteen reasons he loves me and can't wait for me to be his wife!

Here's the list (plus my commentary in parenthesis)
  1. You have a caring & touching heart  (I cry at the drop of a hat)
  2. You and Holly are a package deal (I do love that puppy)
  3. You know me soo well (yet he still surprises me with the sweet loving things he does)
  4. I love your nose (I used to hate my nose, in high school a friend compared to a chunky boy's nose)
  5. That weird look you give me when I stare (that look is "why the heck are you looking at me... do I have a booger?")
  6. That I know you're always by my side (because I know he always wants me there)
  7. The way you get excited over the littlest thing  (meaning I'm a big dork)
  8. The sacrifices you make for me  ( I honestly don't feel like I've sacrificed anything)
  9. The way you let me hold you in any emotion (I love his hugs even when I'm trying to rush around the kitchen and cook dinner)
  10. I love your smile (it's easy to smile when he's around)
  11. Your dances (yes I'm a big dork who dances around when I'm in a goofy mood)
  12. How I know that you are excited & nervous for the next couple of months (I couldn't me more excited)
  13. I love you laugh (I usually enjoy laughing with him... except when he's tickling after I've told him to knock it off.... ok even that makes me laugh)
  14. How you like to go with me to the farm and school activities (I do enjoy seeing how he interacts with his kiddos)
  15. Because you are You and I am marrying you  ( again I couldn't me more excited about the wedding and our future together!!)
What would your list say for your significant other??

New Dress!

Since yesterday was Presidents' Day, I had the day off.  My mom and I went to meet with a couple florists and rental places for the ceremony decorations.  After our apointments, we hit up the mall.  It was super duper cold, and this mall has some stores that face out.  Needless to say the ones we wanted to go to were the coldest possible choices.  However we both had a great time.  We went to Coldwater Creek for my mom, it's like her mothership or something.  While she was trying on 18 different outfits I saw a couple that I really liked, which surprised me.  Normally I think their stuff is more my mom, so not me.  Which either means Coldwater Creek is getting cooler, or I'm turning into my mother...  We'll go with the first option!  But I tried both things on and fell in love with this dress.  I plan on wearing it with a navy jacket.

I think it'll make the perfect bridal shower outfit.  So I need your help!  What shoes???

Last Night...

Random engagement pic, just because I like it!

Last night was our first marriage prep class.  It was two hours long, and to be honest I was kind of dreading it!  I didn't know what to expect, and I didn't know how much they'd pry into my personal life.  Also there's the whole Farmboy's Catholic, and I'm not thing.  This was the Catholic marriage class, so I was nervous.

Luckily I had no reason to be!  The class had five engaged couples and one lead couple who've been married 25 years.  The couples were all pretty quiet, I think none of us really knew what to expect.  The lead couple was very sweet and kept the ball rolling fairly well. 

We talked about communication, which was really interesting.  A lot of the couples talked about different fights and arguments they'd been in, and FB and I just kind of sat there.  We honestly have never fought.  We've had things that we've disagreed about and disappointments, but we figure it out before either of us gets upset enough to argue or fight.  I think part of this is just our nature, we don't really argue with anyone for any reason.  Also we're very thoughtful, thinking it over before we're ready to talk about anything. 

Anyway, it was a great first session.  I'm actually looking forward to the homework we have to do this weekend.  The upcoming weeks' topics look a little more difficult, but I guess that'll be good for us.  For all you married couples.... What type of marriage prep did y'all go through?  Did you love it/hate it?
