what we've been up to in pictures.

 Life has been insane lately.

So incredibly busy.

Running around like serious chickens with our heads completely cut off.

But hey, I'm not complaining :)

There's no sense in me rambling on about why I haven't been able to blog. It's simply the fact that at this point in life, we are just flat out b.u.s.y.

Here's a little bit about what we've been up to.
Someday soon I hope to go into depth with each event mentioned, just for my personal sake of remembering these dear times.

March 12, 2011- Bridal Shower #1 hosted by family

April 2nd was the Grand Opening of our store!

Ribbon cutting took place at 10:00am on 4.2.11 with our city mayor & the city council members!

Bella is growing so big.
Sad to say, but at this time she is living at Cliff's dads. We are working on her pen...still.

Cliff kills turkey #1 of the season..

April 10th: My home church CWF ladies threw me Bridal Shower #2

Easter Weekend

Saturday was spent driving to Jasper, Florida where Cliff's dads family lives.
The women were throwing me a Bridal Tea at a beautiful historic inn about 45 minutes from their hometown.
All of the pictures are currently on my Mom's camera.
It was a great experience & very uplifting!

Easter Sunday: 

{did you notice I missed the "blue" memo?}

Heading out to the farm!

Easter afternoon was spent at the famly farm. Even though our great grandparents have passed on, we still meet at their home for every major holiday :)

 Cliff kills turkey #2... I was able to witness this one.
Actually, it should've been my bird.
Long story.

This was past weekend, we finally got to meet these babies!

Right:  For Madison's {Cliff's half-sister} 14th birthday, Mom & Dad bought her this beautiful palomino named Star.
Left: Meet Tim-Buck-Two. He's for the rest of the family to ride!

This is how I spend most of my days.
Our store is BUSY.
I'm thankful.

Yesterday marked my LAST clinical day EVER!
I just finished up ten 12-hour shifts with my preceptor in the neonatal intensive care unit at Memorial Health!
It was an awesome experience & definitely made up my mind as to where I want to work.
I miss my babies already!

This weekend is our Couple's Lawn & Garden Shower thrown by a few of our dear friends parents!
We are looking forward to settling down & enjoying everyones company :)

Next week, GRADUATION!

Thursday is our class picnic & pinning ceremony practice.
Friday at 7 p.m. is the Nursing pinning ceremony.
Saturday I will officially be a four year college graduate with a nursing degree!

Life is flying by.

Graduation in 9 days.
Getting hitched in 36 days.

What comes next?

Babies?! hehehehehee.
{just kidding Mom!}

Life is great!
