Arkansas in a jiff!!

So Nick and I drove to Arkansas on Friday... Drove home on Monday... It was a whirlwind of a trip and probably not the smartest idea we have ever had!!! Mental note= take more time to drive!!!!!

Here are a few pictures of the trip. I had 2 bridal showers that were full of family and friends. They were perfect!!!

Driving, Driving, and More Driving
Thank you, Katniss, for getting us 3000 miles!

Kindness always wins

So on account of I am going to be wed in roughly 4.5 months... I have been thinking and talking a lot with my future spouse-to-be about raising little ones and how to teach them correct things. I found on Pinterest the other day a little something that goes like this..


I really truly want to instill this in my future family. I will be the first to admit that I am too harsh, critical, and judgmental of others when I don't know them, their story, or their life. It is my goal and wish to be more kind... to all. I guarantee that if we all knew what people have gone through in their lives and understood why they are the way they are.. we would be more kind and loving. This is what I hope to do and be... and my kiddos!

Pinterest to the Rescue!!

So lots of people have the theory that Pinterest is a time waster and that is doesn't provide any useful things... I completely disagree.

To me, Pinterest is
-Teaching me new skills
-Adding to my recipe stash
-Helping me dress better
-Boosting my photography knowledge
-Completed my wedding planning process.

Nick and I needed a breakfast recipe yesterday.... and Pinterest came to our rescue.
We made a low carb-low fat breakfast pizza and LOVED IT!! I think next time we will try the crust out of biscuits for a more fluffy texture, but overall it was a huge success, thus only solidifying my love and PRO Pinterest thoughts =)

give it a go!

Well.. my dear friends...

My lovely fiance decided that it would be a funny little joke to do this on Thanksgiving...

(apparently this is something that people do... hahah. Didn't know it really happened.)

He asked me so nicely, "Madison, does this whip cream smell sour??" And I so happily stuck my face down next to it to take a whiff.... and ended up with pie-filled-nostrils!! =) This however was a good experience for me.. I will be the first to admit that I need to loosen up sometimes!!

Wife'N it Up!!!

So Tuesday was the first day of my Wifey-ness kicking in. Nick called and told me he wasnt feeling well, so I decided to go down to Bountiful and baby him... (so nice right?! haha)

But turns out he really was super duper sick!!!!

Long story short-- His doctor gave him medicine for High Bloop Pressure (which he doesnt have) but it can also be a preventative medicine for renal failure (also which he has no signs of)... and it dropped his BP so low that he was non functional.

--Hard to breath, difficult to walk, fever, chills, dizzy like crazy... NO BUENO!!!

We went to the ER at 12:30am and stayed till about 3:00am and then just took it easy the next day. Thankfully, he is off the medicine and is feeling much better!!! It was the first of many experiences I will have has a wife (even though I'm not quite yet to that title haha) And I can't WAIT!!!! <3
