And, her new album is featuring a collaboration with Andre3000 whom I love so I am excited for her album to drop in June.

I can't wait to see them at ACL! 

I keep getting told that people can't comment on this blog for some reason? Does anyone know how to fix this? Do anything to comments? I have recently found myself in the land of technically challenged and its pissing me off more than I can describe. Anyways, any advice helps. I guess just email me...

 Happy Wednesday.

I think I packed 12 pairs of shoes and my entire closet! 

We leave today to start our wedding festivities! 

I don't think I've ever been more excited in my life!

So last week I had the pleasure of going to my nephews 5th birthday party which was a pirate theme. The weather held out and all 12 kids came over ready to fight and have a massive treasure hunt. Whew, was I tired. No parents except for two friends stayed so it really was quiet the cattle corral!

Here are some pics of us and the Birthday Boy! 

Me trying out the Captain Morgan's pose while Jill is doing a very awkward pirate pose? 
pops was one HELL of a Black Beard

 5 days to go, Folks! We had a great weekend getting ready for our big weekend next week! We are so EXCITED!
our last weekend as a "single" couple. If that even makes any sense.

he loves chimay and we love the restaurant North 3rd.
Scottie playing baseball, won both games. BALLER!
Free concerts at the Piazza three blocks up are awesome! Biffy Clyro. Little heavy metal but free and outside are great evenings - even in the rain and they were actually really good live!
ok, this one is a little harder to explain. I always refer to my future kid as "Bob". I think this is what he'd look like. This was on the wall at North Third. I naturally loved it.

I had my first beer in over a month on Friday night and it was DELISH! I only drank half but that half was DELISH! Should I say, DELISH again? I won't.

My fiance (for only 11 more days) is amazing at cleaning the kitchen. He stacks all the dirty dishes in a pile and puts them on the side of the sink instead of the empty dishwasher. HAHA! He must have been really good at lego's and tetris as a kid. Perfectly piled.

I love you! :)

This weekend I had the pleasure of hanging out with my little sister. I love sister time more than anything in the world. there really isn't anything better. All we do is laugh and spend my Dad's money. Its perfect. ;) 

We were up early on Saturday morning so we decided to head up to our old highschool (2 miles away) and run/walk the track. It was a beautiful day and I think we discussed everything under the sun. I soaked up every minute. Living in a city with no girlfriends... yet... can be a little challenging at times. Thank GOD I have a fiance that is my best friend! 
Here are some photos of our pretty day. 

 Jill demonstrating her amazing cheerleading skills. yeah right, she was a knock down LAX player.
 Friday Night Lights. Those were so fun...
 We ruled that school. Marvin Sisters.
this is just my favorite picture because my dog looks HORRIFIED!

I also went to my nephews 5th birthday party. 
I'm still exhausted. 
I will have pics of that later. It was a Pirate Theme and I still have bruises from being jabbed with swords.
I am in serious crazy wedding mode. I know I've been engaged for a year and a half and its been in planning for that long too, but I literally just started getting interested yesterday. I guess I'm feeling better.

Scott called me a nerd. a big nerd. i am. :)

It's Friiiiiiiiiiiiiiiday! 


I have a dress fitting today AND I get to see my sister tonight. Today is going to be a great day! 

what plans do yall have?
oh who am I kidding, no one responds to me. 

I'm at my parents house in Virginia admiring their backyard.
Living in the city makes you miss the trees, colors, birds and all around beauty of the burbs and a backyard!
and that's little Penny on the bottom right. Rescue dog that might rip your face off, but, she's sweet. (sometimes)

My amazing San Francisco family threw me a bridal shower a couple weeks ago and I sooooooooo wish I could have been there! They seemed to have so much fun and some got to meet me by many pictures before actually seeing me at the wedding. I am so thankful for my future mother in law and sister-in-law for throwing this for me. They asked for a theme and since I LOVE photos they decided the theme would be picture frames. I couldn't have been more thrilled and excited. I finally got around to opening the boxes of presents (haven't been feeling great) but, opening them definitely gave me some well deserved energy and happiness. I LOVED them all! I set all of them up on my window and can't wait to pick out the pictures to put in them. EEEEK! So happy.
