Some engagement photos...

So glad it's almost Friday! This weekend my friend Angie and I are going to be running a Turkey Trot 5K here at Quantico. I go to pick up my runners packet tommorrow. Haven't done a run in a few months, so I am looking forward to it, kind of. Haha.....

So this weekend in Fredericksburg the "Merry Market" is going on. It's a great Boutique craft show that happens in Fredericksburg, VA every winter, and I always love going. Some of the cutest things are there.

Can't believe Christmas is next month, ahhh! Usually I am way more on top of buying gifts than I am this year. Can't wait to put up the Christmas tree, I am getting antsy, hehe :)

For those of you that haven't got to see all my engagement pics here are some of my favorites. I think they ended up great!! :) Just wanted to share them! :)

Have I mentioned I love damask?

I think this design is really pretty. It is bright which would be really nice for the July Wedding Scott and I are having, and it has the damask I love so much! :) This could maybe work? Who knows....  Well it's already Thursday, one more day till Friday! Yay! :) Now I need to see if I can find a fabric that matches, who knows!

Yesterday Scott and I both had the day off and we did absolutely nothing but watch tv, and take mini naps all day. It was nice and relaxing! :)  

It is so rainy and yucky outside today. Ughhh! Hopefully the sun comes out here soon! Anyways, hope everyone has a nice day, talk to you soon!

One of our engagement photos...

A few weeks ago my friend Liz took our engagement photos. Here is just one of them. I will post more later on! :) Can't wait to get out our save the dates here soon! :) It might help if I could decide what color scheme to go with, huh?!

Well tomorrow Scott and I have the day off. It's Veteran's day. So that will be nice. Just a mid-week day off.  I will probably straighten the house up some.Maybe do a little shopping, not sure yet.

Nothing else is really new. The exciting life I lead! :) Can't believe it's almost Thanksgiving already! Time has been flying by this year. Anyways, I hope everyone has a good Tuesday!

Okay.....try this recipe

So I tried to make those cookies on Saturday with one of my friend's Sarah from college. They were okay....I mean, they weren't bad....but I like regular chocolate chip cookies waaaaay more! :) But I did try another recipe, and it actually ended up just like the fatty version of it. It is called Million Dollar Pie. It is a VERY SIMPLE no bake pie, and I love it!! :) I bought reduced fat, or fat free ingredients for the pie, and I couldn't even tell the difference. Here is the recipe:



1 - 12 oz contain of fat-free cool whip

1 large 15 or 20 oz can of crushed pineapple in its own juice....drain well

5 tbsp of lemon juice

1 can of fat-free Eagle Brand condensed sweetened milk

2 reduced-fat graham cracker pie shells

Mix all ingredients together well and put in 2 reduced fat pie shells. Put in fridge.

SERVING SIZE: 1/8 of pie

Sooooo good! :)  The example pic I found doesn't have pineapples, but it was the closest pic of it I could find! :) I also don't use limes on the top of the pie...

That's all for now!

Roxy on Halloween

I learned that if I want to dress Roxy up, I need to dress her up in something she will not be able to take off. This shirt worked pretty well.
Tried to get her to model by the Halloween decorations, but I ended up having to hold her most of the time, haha :):) On the back, her shirt said "Little terror" and it glowed in the dark.

This will be her second halloween, hehe....

Scott and I had some friends over on Halloween night, and we just handed out candy. Now Thanksgiving is coming. This is going to be a hard one for me!!!! Being on weight watchers, I just hope I don't give in too much, but it is Thanksgiving, who knows, haha :):

The next few weeks are going to be pretty busy. I have signed up for TWO Turkey Trots, one at Quantico with Angie on the 21st, and then one on Thanksgiving Day with Shahanna. I like having someone to run with, it motivates me more when someone else is there.

And the wedding stuff, I have basically started from scratch on a lot of the decisions I made...I am so undecisive, I need to make up my mind. Haha....Atleast I have the church, reception spot, photographer, bridesmaids and DJ. That's good, right? Still need to get rolling though!

Anyways, hope everyone has a good rest of your week! :)
