In other news....we got our Marriage License yesterday! Eeeek! The lady made fun of me because she said I couldn't stop smiling! I'm not sure if it was because of the emotion of it, or not, but when JR met me at the court house...I thought he looked especially hot! hahahaha!
I always he think he looks hot, but he walked in, and I thought! WOW! That's my almost husband! He'll be really embarrassed that I posted this, ha!
To add to the perfect day, I picked up JR's ring, and it is PERFECT!! It is just what he wanted :)
We took everything over to my parent's house, and went out to dinner at Taverna! It was a giddy day, and to top it all off, we have Lauren Edwards' wedding tonight!!! woo-hoo!!
Wedding, wedding, wedding! Oh! What will I do with free time after the wedding!?!?!? What did I do with all of my time before?!
15 days, 15 days, 15 days, 15 days, yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!
I love JR.

I've had my eye on these spectacular prints of the old OU football programs ranging from the 1950's and on! They are such a neat find, and my idea is to have a few of them framed for our office. JR has made it pretty clear, that he does not want our house to end up crimson and cream, so I see this as a compromise! It's still OKLAHOMA, but it's vintage and has a very cool look to it!
Check it out!! OU vs. Colorado, Dad's Day Wknd OCT. 1965

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ cup creamy peanut butter

Lauren has been quite the gardener these days, and found the mini-pots at Target, and I ofcourse have been wanting to copy! Alas!!!! I finally found some at our store!!
They have all kinds of herbs and such, but I wanted something pretty to start out with, so I got a Marigold, Daisy, and a Strawberry plant! All of them have sprouted, and I'm super proud of my mini-pots!In order from baby sprout to big sprout: strawberry, daisy, and marigold!! woo-hoo!
I went over to Ryan's last night and convinced her roomie, Schills, to go out and get some too!! They are so fun!! and so teeny tiny! If you get some, you must post when they sprout! Happy mini-gardening!!!
26 days!!!!! wow!
So, I apologize for our lack of daily posts, as wedding stuff is taking up 99.9% of my time.
To add to our whirlwind, or mine really...I slammed my finger in my car door yesterday. So, if anyone called me yesterday afternoon (Holly) I didn't answer because I was probably too busy crying my eyes out. Again, no exaggeration.
I was about to start my grocery shopping, and as I was fixing to shut my door a huge gust of wind came and slammed my poor little finger in my door. I kind of went into shock, and tried to walk away but immediately felt like the wind got knocked out of me so I went back to my car and tried to talk myself out of the pain as I sat in the passenger side of my car, crocodile tears flowing.
I'm sure I looked ridiculous, but I eventually walked me and my fat finger into the store where some poor employee came upon me and doctored my injury. 24 yr old, crying, grasping my finger.
Champion me, actually did get some groceries, but eventually could not stand it, and hurried home. Crying the whole way home....I wanted to call an ambulance for myself :)
I called JR, who ofcourse thought I was doing my Natalie-drama and making it sound way worse than how I portrayed it...he came home and said, "Wow! you did it pretty good..."
DUH DUH DUH, which ofcourse brings on another round of cry-heaving. By this point my "pain" is so bad I decide that only laying in bed, and JR fixing me a sandwich will do :) and it does, definately help. Along with a painkiller...
My finger is double its normal size, and looks like a man finger. I can't sleep, I type with one hand, and must resort to using my weak, left hand which never gets used. I'm using my reserve hand, ha.
That's my pity party, and I'm sticking to it.
