Proposals, Dress Shopping & Sprinkles!

Wow I am on a roll! Two post now in one week! See I told yall I am getting back into this blogging thing. I really have missed it so much.

So a few weeks back our close friends Chad and Lauren got engaged! We are so thrilled for them and so glad that they found each other. Lauren is actually a long time friend of Chris' and through that Lauren and I became close as well. We were even neighbors for 2 years as we lived one apartment over from each other - great for those late night wine nights! Chad proposal was perfect and one that will never be forgotten. So here is a short version of the proposal. Lauren is an interior designer whom owns her own business. Often times she gets rolls of fabric sent to the house for her clients. Well on that special day she received a large fabric roll at the door. She brought it inside and placed it in the office not thinking anything of it. However in the back of her mind she was thinking that she hadn't ordered any to be delivered yet. Little did she know that Chad was hiding around the corner waiting for her to open the package. She turned around and there he was home from work and no car in sight. He planned on surprising her but that didn't quiet go as planned. He was hoping that she would have opened the box but she didn't. So he played it cool and they hung out for awhile before Chad finally convinces her to open the package. When she opens the package she sees the fabric and he tells her to roll it out to further inspect it. As she rolls it out she sees that on the fabric is embroidered with the word "Will You Marry Me?" She tells him that the package must have been delivered to the wrong person but then turns around to see him kneeling on one knee! He couldn't have done a better job! Not only did it fit her personality but he also got the fabric to match the bedroom and had them embroider it far enough in so that they could make it into a pillow. Great job Chad! So happy for the two of you! Ok maybe that wasn't the short version lol! And to make things even more exciting they asked both Chris and I to be in the wedding! Chris is an usher and I am a bridesmaid! So excited for the big day, April 30, 2011, and for all of the events in between!

So with proposals comes wedding shopping! It was a last minute thing but there was a great event called Brides Against Breast Cancer that was held in Houston over the weekend. Lauren, her mom, Chad's mom and myself were thrilled to make it to the event. The dresses were marked at a discount price but all the proceeds went to the Making Memories Breast Cancer Foundation! What a great way to make a difference! She not only found a dress but it also went to a great cause!

My parents gave us there old dinning room table and chairs. So Chris and I are in the process of sanding and staining them to match the darker furniture we have.So what do you think? It's still a work in progress and its definitely not easy! All the chairs have to be sanded by hand.
My arms hurt!

A little bit of this and that

I thinking that I am finally being lifted out of my blogging rut!!!! I know I have been MIA for a month and even before that wasn't doing that great of a job getting back into the swing of things. Well ladies and gents this is all about to change. It's summer time and this is my time of year! This post will be kind of random and all over the place but bear with me and in the post ahead I will be going into further detail about them!

Chris and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary in May! Wow how time has flown by! I feels like just yesterday I was walking down the aisle to my husband to be and now we are living our happily ever after! I couldn't imagine being married to a better man. I love you Chris!

So I have a bad case of baby fever. Its always in the fore front of my mind and it seems that everywhere I turn its all about babies. Friends having babies, diaper commercials, a cute adorable baby in the grocery store. Yep baby on the brain! Now don't worry I am not sugar coating everything! It's hard work being a mom and everyone definitely has their ups and downs. Fussy babies, the terrible two's, stinky diapers and the other wonderful messes that need to be cleaned up. But its all worth it to me and I so look forward to the day that we get pregnant. We have decided to wait another year before trying but sometimes I get so anxious and we have both been getting on the right track in order to "prepare" for starting a family. So I need some advice ladies. How are you getting through baby fever or how did you finally say enough is enough and just started trying? And did you get pregnant right away or did it take you awhile? I know its all about timing and when its right it just happens. But for now I need patience (thanks to my dad I wasn't born with any, lol)!

On other news Chris got promoted this morning!!!! I am so proud of him and he has worked soooo hard! He will be spending alot more time in the office and I am sure that there will be plenty of times that he will come home cranky but I hope that I can greet him at the door and take away any of his worries. So proud of him!

Lots of changes have been going on in the Lenz household and I am totally addicted to DIY projects. I have already started a few and I am waiting on a few more things to arrive to finish the rest but I am really excited to see all the hard work that we have been doing become a final product! I am totally obsessed with Young House Love. They have so many great ideas and tips! If you haven't visited their website yet it's a must!

Ok I have been rambling for long enough. I am back ladies and hopefully on the next post I can load up some pictures and go into more random thoughts, lol! xoxo
