6 months down, 7 to go!

I cannot believe that we have been engaged 6 months already! It is so crazy, time is truly just flying by! On Saturday Drew and I had engagement pictures. I was kind of nervous about how it would all go, and could not really pick out what we would be wearing until about.. 2 hours before! Our photographers are a married couple, Ivan and Ana, and they came to College Station for the photo shoot! We went to downtown Bryan (it is a historic downtown) and had a BLAST! At first I felt a bit awkward and said I felt as if music should be playing or something, haha! But soon enough I got used to it and we were just all 4 looking for cool places to take different types of pictures. Every now and then Ivan and Ana would show us some of the pictures..and they were just so great. They are so talented! Then we went to the Dixie Chicken (a very, very old country bar across from A&M) the Dixie Chicken is a big part of A&M's history. We had not even thought to take pictures there, but as we were driving by Drew had the idea (what a creative fiance I have!) So we went and took some pictures on the old wooden porch, it was very cute. Then we went back to Drew's house, had an outfit change, then took pictures on our bicycles and in a park next to his house. These pictures were taken around 5:30ish so we also had the sun setting! It was a fun-filled day and I told Ivan and Ana I would love for them just to come follow us around everyday! It made me even more excited for our wedding knowing how amazing it will be captured on camera and film! The pictures will be on a webpage in about a week and a half, so I will most the information on here as soon as that happens!
Then today we met with a DJ, we liked him a lot and that went really well! Then we went and met Drew's new little cousin, Kallan. He is only about 2 weeks old, so precious! It was a very busy weekend but also a lot of fun! Everything is coming together...

Well I am going to try to get more consistent about writing on this!
This semester has flown by, I seriously cannot believe its already almost November!
As far as wedding stuff goes:
-we have hired the florist, I love her!
-we have engagement pictures this Saturday... I still need to figure out our outfits!
-we have our first premarital counseling session this Thursday night (we will be mentored by a couple that has been married 23 years, we are very excited to learn a lot from them!)
-we are meeting with a dj this Sunday, I have talked with him a lot on the phone and really like him!
-my wedding dress ships on FRIDAY! So I am going home next weekend to see it, I cannot wait for my mom to get to see me in it! :)

So things are moving along great! Almost only 7 months to go, which is just crazy!...And we have been engaged six months..even weirder! Kailey and Ryan only have about 4 months left, I cannot believe it!

As far as school goes, things are going well. I am loving my time in 4th grade, but have learned that it is probably not the grade for me. I am not a huge fan of teaching writing-it is very hard! I found out I will be in 1st grade probably for student teaching which will be great! And the school is very close to my house-a huge plus! My teacher seems super sweet and one of my friends was with her last year for student teaching! So things are all falling into place!
I know that next semester will be absolutly insane so I am trying to get a lot of wedding stuff done now. I am counting on Christmas Break to do a lot with Drew since we both will not be in school. Although, I do start student teaching the first week of January, crazy!
Well, I need to go get some sleep! Hopefully I'll update again soon!
