Happy Anniversary!!

Today Nate and I celebrated our anniversary. We both love St. Patty's Day, so it's really fun to share our anniversary with the holiday. I know we are only dating, but I think we will continue to celebrate this anniversary, because we are getting married on my Birthday it will be nice to have another little day to make each other feel special.

To celebrate we went to this amazing restaurant Duck City, in downtown Davenport. No, I was not brave enough to try the duck, but Nate said it was great. We had heard a lot of great things about this place, and I have to say it definitely lived up to what everyone was saying. I am full and ready for bed! It was nice to get a chance to try it since we only have about SEVEN months left here. That is so hard for me to believe. I started to panic a little the other day when I started to think about how we still don't know where we are headed, and the fact I will have to find a new job. :(

We had a great evening together and I look forward to many more years to come!

I thought it would be fun to share some pictures from our St. Patty's days from the past. I could only manage to find ones from 4 years ago, 2 years ago, and then one we took tonight. ENJOY!

4 Years ago....

2 Years ago....

Way to go Andrew!

My little brother, Andrew, went to state this weekend for individual speech. He got all good ratings and made it to All-State!!!! I just wanted to take a minute to say congrats Andrew! We are all so proud of you, and it looks like all those years stuck at home with Dad are paying off! Keep up the great work!

Nothing else really new lately. Just working away on all of the wedding planning. We are making lots of progress, but still a ton to do.

Nate was busy with board review all weekend, and will be taking part 3 bords this weekend, so a BIG GOOD LUCK to my love Nathan. I know you will do great!

Happy Birthday!

Just wanted to say Happy Birthday to my older brother Steven!!!

My sister made it to town Sunday night in time to surprise him and the kids. We went out for supper and had a great time. Afterwards, they came back to the house and we all hung out. Casey and Justin have a dog named Jackson, and both Meagen and Zander loved him. Zander wanted to hug him, and Jackson wanted no part with that, but he was really good with them.

It was so funny what Meagen said to me when I was carrying her out to the truck to go home. She turned to to me and said, "Why do those people work at your house?" She thought that Casey and Justin worked for us! Too cute.

Lost Diamond!

Last Tuesday I had just gotten off of work, and hadn't been home long when I got a phone call. As I was talking and trying to schedule an appointment, I looked down at my hand and there was a diamond missing from my ring!!! I gasped and Nate immediately looked over in concern. I didn't even hear another work the lady on the phone said to me. I got off the phone and ran over to show Nate. He was also not thrilled. I kept thinking, "No way! I've only had the ring for a half a year!"

We made the trip to the jewelers right away, and they told me it looked like a hit my ring against something and the diamond cracked and fell out. Which there is NO WAY that happened. If I had hit my hand that hard I would think that would be something I would notice. They did replace the diamond, but I had to live two days with out it! I couldn't wait to have it back!

I did joke with Nate right when it happened that he could now tell me where he really got the ring. :)
