15 Things to Put on Your Wedding Registry

Ah, there is nothing like a good wedding registry. When I got engaged over a year ago, one of the first things I began thinking about (after I set the wedding date) was what to register for.

Read This Before Choosing Your Wedding Date

Over a year ago I went up a mountain trail as a girlfriend, and came down a fiancee.

I was five years old, and I desperately wanted a gerbil. My Mom told me if I could keep my room clean for three months then I could have a furry little pet I so desired. Somehow {and I suspect with lots of help} I kept my room clean, I got my gerbil, and have been battling clutter ever since….

365 Days of Pictures: Week 8!

Slowly, but surely, with a lot of coaxing–my camera and I are becoming friends. I got my first SLR camera (this one) about eleven months ago, and while I did dutifully tote it to all of Warrior Man’s wrestling tournaments, other than sports I just left it languishing in its case.

A sweet group of thirty people gathered around Warrior Man and myself, and placed hands upon our shoulders. We bowed our heads, and they started praying. One at a time.

Adventures of a Newlywed: My First Week of Meal Planning

For the next few months I will be chronicling this journey through a series of posts every Monday called (drum roll please!)…Adventures of a Newlywed. Challenge #1: figure out how to cook more, eat out less, and just generally be less stressed about the daily demands of feeding ourselves.

365 Photography Challenge: Weeks 4 and 5!

There was something surreal about stepping into my last first day of undergraduate classes. Without even realizing it, my summer has come to an end. Through the sound of one calendar page being torn off to make room for the next school began, and I neglected to post my pictures from last week. Whoops! So, in honor of simplifying, I…
