I'm reeeeeaaaally looking forward to our Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks. I'm hoping to get a lot of wedding stuff done. So, those should be more exciting posts. As far as Save the Dates go, it's been fairly disappointing... We worked so hard making our own... but it turns out that our printing options just aren't up to standards. So, we have to scratch out the hard work and use a pre-made template (which was the original plan). But that's ok! Maybe, I'll have Daniel post what we made just so you can see it anyways! Hahaha.
Hope you all are having a great week so far! Good night!

So, Saturday morning we woke up and ate breakfast that mom made for us all at my grandparents. Then we got ready and went to a house that my uncle was renting for the weekend for his family to stay in. Lots of my family came by, we watched some football, played with the millions of babies (haha) and even had a little worship session. Also, we ate way too much. In fact we have been eating horribly this weekend! Hahaha. After hanging out with family for a while, it was time for us to go to Ocala. Daniel and I had a GREAT drive home. The whole way we had the music blasting and the windows down. We had so much fun. When we got here we had pizza, did our thousand loads of laundry and watched The Avengers, all with Daniel's family. It was nice to spend some quality time with them!

Danny could make anyone laugh on the spot. He was always quick with a witty response, and may have left you wondering "Should I really be laughing at that right now?" I won't mention that he still owed us a new couch after New Years a couple years ago...
Bethany's life was a testimony of God in every single aspect. I have always looked up to her as my closest girl cousin for all of my life. She was so beautiful and lit up a room every time she entered. She always had a joyful spirit, and everyone could tell why. Bethany certainly fought the good fight and was so strong through all of her heart struggles. I'll never forget Grandma Wyns always getting our names mixed up.
Please continue to keep my family in your prayers. It is much appreciated.
We went to the Evans tonight again for small group, which was great. Daniel and I got to do some worship for the group, so that was fun. After, we had some really constructive vision casting for FCA at UCF this year. Really excited for what God has in store for UCF. The fire is lit.
The picture is of the flowers Daniel picked for me from the various plants in campus yesterday. It was so sweet and thoughtful.
Last thought for the night, is just love unconditionally. Always remember that there is too much unknown to not cherish those dearest to your heart. It blessed me so much today how much family and friends were quick just to check on me and love on me. Thankful heart tonight. Good night everyone!

Well, here's us! Haha. Hope you all had a great weekend!

Friday, you know, the usual classes... Daniel only had one class though. So that was nice for him. He was able to get some work done! When I got back we did a little grocery shopping and I made some yummy dinner (pictured above and with the help of my lovely Daniel!). We then got ready and went to the mall at Millenia! We just walked around, separating here and there so I could look at potential wedding shoes! No luck there, so, still on the hunt! When we left we grabbed some milkshakes from Steak n' Shake and relaxed for the rest of the night! Life is good! Weekend of homework ahead, but that's ok! I might be able to get some wedding crafts in somewhere in there... And tomorrow, we are determined to finish these Save the Dates! Hahaha.
Enjoy your weekend everyone!

Soooo I am going to talk about Tuesday! It was busy and fun and then we went to the Evans for our real marriage small group! Somewhere in there though, I called Michele. Michele is a travel agent, Michele is in charge of our honeymoon, and so we officially booked our honeymoon! Woohoo! Down payment is down! We are going on a cruise which is so exciting! I'm not gonna say where we are going because what if one of you is a creeper?? But anyways, that was a really big check off of our wedding to do list! :) Tori and I have officially switched spots as far as school work load goes. I have a gazillion things to do and she...well doesn't. But she still has things to do, so that's good! Anyways, we are staying busy and excited all at the same time! The wedding is sneaking up! Yay!

Yesterday was classes all day and then Daniel and I went to the study room down the hall to work on school stuff... Of course.
We went back to my apartment made some soup for dinner, ate it, worked on more school... And that was pretty much it.
Of course, somewhere in there was a LOST break, as well as a devo.
But hey, I've got good news! Daniel and I should be booking our honeymoon this week! Eeee! AND Daniel received a phone call yesterday and it is looking more and more like we will be moving to the Melbourne area when we get married!
Have a great day! Much love!

Daniel and I had eggs and bacon for breakfast. I love when Daniel makes breakfast! And then we did homework all day! With a LOST break somewhere in there! After we had enough of homework, we decided to have a little date night! We grabbed some dinner and then went to Michael's to get some wedding crafts! After, we settled down with an episode of LOST. Again. I know that it seems like we're obsessed with it, but really it's a nice 45 minute break from the chaos and business of the day. A time where we don't worry about school or wedding stuff but just take a breather. It's good to do, try it! Not necessarily LOST, but just something that gives your mind a break during the day (not like LOST let's you do that anyways...)
Hope you all had a great weekend! Daniel will tell you all about today later!

P.S. I love to make Daniel laugh. It's one of my favorite things. Ever.

On another note, I have started accruing addresses for save the dates! It's exciting to see check marks flying up next to all the people we have listed! Of course, not everyone on the list has sent there address and I haven't even contacted everyone I need to yet, but it's still exciting! I've also been working on personalizing the perfect design for Tori, which is going well so far! It's definitely better than using a template for us! We like having a little more freedom than that! Well, that's all for now for wedding updates! I hope you all have a great day tomorrow! God bless! And goodnight!

After the florist, Daniel and I had lunch with Daniel's mom. We went to Primary Oven. It was so good!! We then packed up and headed back to Orlando! When we got here I got started baking! For our group tonight, the ladies were suppose to bring snacks... So, I baked Boston cream cupcakes! I must say, they were a hit! I am loving our group, it has really been nice to meet some great people!
The picture is of my biology notes. Basically, according to my calculations, there is a good chance that Daniel and I will have children with dimples and cleft chins. Hahahaha.
Yesterday, after classes Tori and I went to Ocala! It felt nice to be home for the short time we were. Right when we got there, Tori's dad had some food out and ready to be heated up! Which was really nice! Plus it was very good! As we ate dinner, I had a good talk with Tori's dad about hers and my future plans and the direction we are heading and that's always fun for me to talk about! After that we went to the mall to get Tori's ring cleaned as part of the protection plan! It always has an extra nice sparkle after that! After ring cleaning we went and visited my parents! And I had a great talk with my dad about a bunch of random but important stuff! Then of course also had a good talk with my mom! Last we went back to Tori's where we said goodnight and went our separate ways for the night... Can't wait to not have to do that anymore! Haha well I hope you all has a great day today! Goodnight!

Tomorrow, after classes we are headed to Ocala and Tuesday we will meet with the florist! Yay! Also, I'm excited to see my parents!
Good night all! Hope you had a great weekend!

Today started with a nice trip to the gym! We worked pretty hard! Hahaha. Anyways, we came back to my apartment and had a little coffee and breakfast and started on homework... We had lunch, took a LOST break, more homework, made dinner, ate dinner, did a devo... you know... and then got ready and went to the game! Woohoo! It was "PINK Knight" in honor of breast cancer awareness (my pink bow in my hair). The game was soooo much fun, of course, especially when we score. The energy in the stadium in awesome, I love it. We had to leave early to finish homework, but hey, as of right now we are winning! I love my school, that's for sure.
I can't wait to get some wedding planning done this weekend! Hopefully get Save-the-Dates done and maybe buy some things for crafts to make! Also, coming up is booking our honeymoon and talking to florists (Tuesday!).
Hope you all have a great night and Friday! Much love!
P.S. Oops.... It was Daniel's turn.... But, he has homework... So, he's got y'all for the next two nights. ;D

After classes, I think Daniel and I were pretty burnt out with school stuff. So, of course, we watched some LOST, did a devo, I showed Daniel what I've pinned recently for the wedding, we talked wedding stuff, and ate dinner (pictured below).
Speaking of Pinterest, my account is a total mess. I have so many different wedding boards to try and keep my head all together!! Haha.
Overall, it was nice to have quality time with my best friend tonight without worrying about school. Good night all!
Yesterday was LONG! Literally lots of hours. Plus Tori and I went jogging and I hadn't gone jogging in a while! So waking up at 6:00 to make it to a 7:00 bible study on campus and then not going to bed until after 12:00 midnight was really tiring. But it was still a great day. Every Tuesday I begin and end the day with John Evans, who is the pastor marrying Tori and I. He leads the bible study that I go to in the morning as well as the small group Tori and I go to at night. He's a great man and a wonderful encourager to both of us. This makes Tuesday a big encouragement! After bible study in the morning was when Tori and I went for a jog, then it took a while to get in because Tori had accidentally locked the key in the room! Which just added a little more humor to the day! Once we got everything taken care of and got in, I made us breakfast while Tori freshened up after the jog and got started on homework. Eggs and muffins were on the menu and, if I do say so myself, they were pretty good. (of course all I had to do was follow the instructions on the packaging of the muffins) After a few hours of homework, it was lunch time. Then after another couple of hours of homework it was time for me to go meet with someone before going to class before coming back to Tori's apartment! Then it was frozen pizza (don't worry, it was as healthy of frozen pizza as you can probably purchase, organic and all) before going to the Evan's for small groups. We ended up staying 2 hours after everyone else had left, just talking about life and stuff! Once we left and got to Tori's apartment, we realized we had a few good things that we should talk about briefly, so we did. And then I said goodnight, and then we left! I didn't realize how eventful yesterday was until just now! Hope you all had a great day! BYE!

So, yesterday was Monday... And I was way too tired to write the blog. Hahaha. Yesterday was the usual school all day kind of day... After school we went grocery shopping! However, after grocery shopping we had a little argument, I hate using that word though, it sounds so awful (we like to say kerfuffle). If fact, I wouldn't even call it an argument, actually. I'm mentioning this because I want this blog to be real and testimonial. It was great later on to look back and see how we were able to still communicate well without blowing things out of proportion. I'm glad that we've had such great counsel everywhere to be able to work things out. The fact that later on we could laugh and talk with each other like it never happened is a blessing. God is great. We ended the night with watching LOST, cuddling and eating a cupcake. Yep. Sometime in between there my roommate, Ashley, came in my room with an early wedding gift (pictured above). It was one of the sweetest moments ever. We are so blessed with so many great people around us. Hopefully, this weekend we can get some more planning done! Have a great day!
