Bridal Portraits

I took bridal portraits yesterday! It was so much fun! We went to Rice University to take the traditional pictures that would make my parents happy. This wasn't the first time I'd had my nails or hair done but I treated myself to getting my makeup done for the portaits and wedding. I went on the referral of my venue and went with My Makeup Rocks. Teresa did an amazing job! You can't see much of the hair in the pics but I'm sure you will in the bridals when I'm allowed to share those. (No, I'm not sharing any in case Nathan decides to check the blog.)

Here's the before...

...and the after! I wish I looked this flawless everyday! (Sorry about the flash!)

Creepy Uncle Moe

I got to pick up my wedding dress today! SO EXCITING! If you had your dress altared at Sew-It-Seams then you've met Ana. She cracks me up! I was told that after I put on my dress today that I would get some dress ettiquite lessons. Do-what?! I'm going to share a few of my favorites. :)
(She also thought Krissy was my younger sister! LMAO! I didn't have the heart to correct her!)
"Everyone thinks its funny when the guy drinks too much and ends up in the bed of a truck, drunk. Girls don't look good drunk and no one thinks it funny, so don't do it."
"There's always a creepy Uncle Moe who wants to cop a feel. Hold onto your wine glass for dear life to block him."
"You're going to need to pee at some point during the night. You'll need to get a plastic bag and a shower curtain."
"You'll need to be potty trained."
"You're boobs will be in your throat if I do that."
"I have made your butt look fantastic. Wow, I'm good."
"It's going to be tight. Beauty hurts."
I spent the whole time laughing. 36 days and counting! CRAZY!

Over the past 2 weekends, Nathan and I spent approx. 25 hours taking our Open Water PADI Certification courses. I am SO TIRED! We did the first weekend in a local pool and this past weekend in the Comal River. I can't wait to sleep in on a Saturday instead of waking up to sit in class. All tiredness aside, it was a lot of fun and I can't wait to go diving in Belize on our honeymoon! If you're interested in taking the classes, let me know and I'll tell you who we went through and what all you'd really need to buy. (Warning: It's expensive, but so much fun!) Here are some goofy pictures of our adventures in SCUBA. Enjoy! :)

There's ALWAYS time to stop at the Winery On The Gruene!

$2 for a four-sample tasting? Yes, please!

It actually felt warmer in the water than out of it.

The first morning it was 30 when we got there!

Wow. 'Nuff said. :)

Repeat Resolution

So I didn't exactly meet my resolution for last year. It's time to try, try again. The goal: to run at least 10 miles a week giving me a total of 520+ miles for the year. It will be easy when I still getting ready for my races at the beginning of year but it's the heat and my own laziness that get me in trouble over the summer. Running in Costa Rica may be interesting as well but we'll have to move there first, then I'll worry about that! Today I'll be putting in 4 miles. :)
