weekend and wedding chores.

 I love spending time with our couple friends (nothing against you single friends, I like you also!).  but this weekend we went over to the Kurkinen's house, and had a great time.  I made pulled pork tacos (in the crock pot, awesome) and Asena made some amazingly gooey brownies.  talking about married life and wedding stuff is so great with a couple that has been married for several years, and I love all the encouragement that they don't know they are giving Mark and I.  I just love seeing them so happy and in love makes me so excited to be an old married couple with Mark :)

this weekend Mark and I decided to go on a family run.  yep, just me and him :)  so Sunday morning, we laced up our shoes and ran for a whole 15 minutes.  haha.  I thought I was going to die, but Mark could have ran another hour and a half probably.  Sunday afternoon was spent with Mark's boss and his wife.  we went to PF Changs for lunch (YUM) and then Barista for a coffee.  Tim and his wife were so sweet, they got us a Christmas/Engagement gift, this little awesome Le Creuset dishes and yummy goodies from Trader Joe's. but, now I am obsessed with Le Creuset.  I want it all.  seriously.

planning my wedding is starting to get kind of fun :)
YAY!  I've been waiting for this moment for quite some time now...okay, really only like 10 days, but still.  things are just starting to fall together nicely.  my sister Joellen is helping with reception decor and helped me design our invitations yesterday!  invitations have been kind of a pain in the booty, so to have it all figured out feels great.  also, we have our venue (praise God!) and we are pretty sure we know where we are having the reception.  
also, a friend from church is going to be doing our wedding photos and neither Mark or I could be happier about it.  the photographer's name is also Mark, and he is just the sweetest guy, I'm so happy he is going to be helping us out!  

okay, this was a bit jumbled, but I kept thinking I need to write these things out, so here they are :)  I hope you guys continue to have a great week, and please let me know if I can do anything for you! :)
