Hot July weekend

Since the weather looked nice and we haven't had a good summer weekend at the farmhouse (stupid rainy June) we decided to head down for a weekend in the country.

On Saturday, we mostly hung around the house reading and working on a puzzle. My mom came down on Saturday afternoon and we all had a lovely dinner of grilled salmon, farm fresh corn on the cob, and sweet potatoes.

On Sunday, I really wanted to drive up to a reservoir that my sibs and I found a couple of years ago. I don't know what it's called, but it's beautiful and not crowded. Joe and I headed up after breakfast and I was disappointed to see that there was still some snow on the mountain tops. I thought it would be too cold to play in the water.

When we got there though, it was warm enough for me to change into my swimming suit and swim around a bit. Though, it was a bit unnerving with all the fish!

I wanted to swim out to a rock that I could see from the shore

Wedding Updates

I've been busy with wedding related things and wanted to make a list of the things we have done so far.

*We have booked our ceremony/reception location

*We have chosen our colors (I'm pretty sure) light purple, dark purple,and light green

*We have mailed the contract to our first choice photographer

*We have met with our cake lady (though nothing has been signed)

*We have decided on favors for the guests

*We have a good idea of what we'd like for centerpieces

*I have paid the first payment on my wedding dress!

I think that's it for now. I still have a lot of time, but I'm having fun with the planning. 359 days!
