I had a wonderful birthday weekend 2 weeks ago! I got so many sweet phone calls and voicemails that made my day! Wesley suprised me and took me to dinner at Callaway Gardens and then we went to Fantasy in Lights! Then on Sunday my parents and Amy came to Auburn and my WHOLE family (which includes Wesley and Matt) went to Keyboards and Carols at FBC Opelika and to dinner at Amsterdams! It was such a great weekend!
Wesley moved into OUR FIRST HOME today!!!!!! I am just giddy thinking about it! We've still got a lot to do to make it feel like home, but we are both so excited about our little house! Here are some pics from move-in day!

I NEVER would have thought that this was going to actually happen, but William (one of my best friends from High School) and Bethany (one of my best friends from college) are getting married!!! I couldn't be any happier for them and look forward to their wedding in Orlando this summer!
Since the Iron Bowl was in Auburn this year, Chatty and I had some company this weekend!!! I absolutely LOVED every second with these girls, and wish that I got to see them more often!
Wesley and I have been doing a little bit of shopping for our first home. We are still not exactly sure on the exact move-in date, but it will most likely be the beginning of December. We have been on a shopping spree and have bought a new mattress, bed, dresser, and sofa. Wesley really wanted a sectional sofa, and it really works well in our den! I am so excited about getting to play house and decorate our first home! We will be using several hand-me-downs from our parents, but we are so excited about the new furniture that we have bought!
Thanksgiving was great this year, even though we were apart on Thanksgiving Day. Wesley and I went to Dothan Monday and Tuesday, and then he left to go back to work on Wednesday and I stayed in Dothan to celebrate Thanksgiving with my family! I was so thankful that my grandmother, aunts, uncles, and cousins were all willing to celebrate a day early so that I could be there too! I had to come back to Auburn and work on Thanksgiving Day and Wesley was off so he met his parents, grandparents, and extended family at his Aunt Polly's house in Birmingham. It was definitely a busy week, but we have so much to be THANKFUL for!

I was so happy that so many of my best friends came into town for the Auburn v. Ole Miss game! Jenny, Lindsay, and Kacy stayed with me and Chatty! I got to watch the game with Wesley, Erin, and Alana at the Auburn Oyster Bar which was a lot of fun...at least for the girls...we mainly talked weddings! Morgan stopped by the condo after tailgating, and like always it was so great to catch up and hear what is going on in her life!
We had our first wedding shower this past Friday night. It was a Tool and Garden shower hosted by Wesley's friends' wives/girlfriends. (I am going to stop saying that they are "Wesley's friends" because they really are my friends too!) They served BBQ, and then we all sat around the fire pit since it was so cold outside! Wesley got a lot of great things, and I got some "tools" for the kitchen!
Me with the wonderful hostesses!
Some of the guys!

Wesley and I got our engagement pictures taken last Thursday by our wedding photographer. She is going to mail me a CD with all of the pictures on it...I cannot wait to see them. Here is one that I have gotten to see (ONE of the 283 pics that she took that day!) I'll post my favorites when I see them!

Wesley and I have been house-hunting for a few weeks now. We are looking to rent something in Auburn or Opelika. Last night at work, one of my co-workers suggested that I check out a house in her neighborhood. It is about 5 minutes from the hospital and about 3 minutes from our church. I drove by it today and fell in love!!! I called the realtor and she showed it to me this afternoon! It is an older house that has been recently updated. Wesley and I are going to look at it together in the morning! I have loved being engaged and planning a wedding, but today I have been giddy about the idea of "playing house" and decorating a home for the 2 of us!
We are taking engagement pictures tomorrow...we are praying for good weather. We had to reschedule them from last week because of all of the bad weather recently. Wesley's mom is meeting us after the pictures and we are all going to Dothan to look at rehersal dinner locations...it should be fun!
Thanks to Alisa, I now have a much cuter blog! She gave me tips on how to give my blog a make-over, and it looks so much better! Thanks Leesie!

We were glad to make it back to Auburn safe and sound....and just in time for the start of football season! Yesterday we tailgated with some friends and went to the game. It still feels so different not sitting in the student section, but we had a great time! I especially loved seeing friends that were in town for the game that I rarely get to see anymore...it's definitely one of the perks of still living in Auburn! And it was great that we began the season with a win! War Eagle!!
