The Ramblings of a Green-Eyed Gal

An Update August 22, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — sarah j. @ 3:15 pm

So…in case you couldn’t tell, I am getting married! Yeah, I am really excited. I really meant to get back on here and post words to go with the picture….but….well….it never happened.
You can read our engagement story on Dave’s blog. I will put my 2 cents in and say I was VERY SHOCKED. I had no clue he was going to propose! He did a very good job at surprising me! He is a dear, sweet, wonderful, godly man, and I can’t WAIT to be his wife!

We will be getting married on November 17 at 3 pm. That is 2 months and 27 days away from today! Not that anyone is counting….. haha. It has certainly been a busy month. It seems either I or Dave and I have something going on most nights of the week. But it has been a fun month, so the busyness has been ok. We are in the middle of wedding planning, and I feel really good about the progress. I have a LOT done. I think I have surprised people, haha. But its been so much fun, and so good to get the big decisions and tasks accomplished. I want to enjoy these few months and not leave things until the last minute. Avoiding stress is my goal!! 🙂

Monday, Dave got his brand spanking new iMac!!!! You can learn more about it here. It was a lot of fun setting it up and seeing a bit of what it can do. Its so pretty, and FAST.

Tonight, Dave and I will be getting our engagement photos taken by our friend Jason, and after that will have our first session of pre-marital counseling with our pastor and his wife. We read the first 2 chapters in the book we will be going through, The Marriage Builder, by Larry Crabb. It is a REALLY good book–very Christ focused and centered. I think I am really going to enjoy it, and it will be a wonderful tool for Dave and I as we begin to build our marriage.

Update complete. 🙂

    I am SO excited about your wedding! I’ve got it marked on my calendar!:) I am also excited that you all are coming down for my friend’s wedding in a few weeks! My house will HOPEFULLY be ready by then. Also, my mom will be in town, so you’ll get to meet her!

    Beth I am very excited about coming down in a few weeks as well! I haven’t seen you in forever, and I am looking forward to it. I am also looking forward to meeting Katie and Ed, and now your mom. 🙂 See you in a few weeks!

    I’m so so so so so so so so excited about your wedding.

    And, yes…the Marriage Builder is an AWESOME book. Justin and I really enjoyed it.

    I would also suggest the 5 love languages. Yes, I know its been around forever, and you may have read it as a single woman…but reading it together with Dave would be very beneficial.
