Happy Day Moment #77

Picking our final engagement photo!!!

Pizza & Bowling with a married couple friend of his. 
We have (pre-marriage) married couple friends! 
I miss doing things in groups and having other personalities to laugh with. More than I realized. This was great.

100 Happy Days -- Days 56&57

Happy Day Moment #56

~A gift from one bride to the next~

Grama and I were in my room looking at my wedding announcement options I'd selected so far, when I told her I was just so nervous I'd pick one I loved today, but will hate in 5 years. I don't want to look back and think my announcement was ugly. She looked at me and said, "Your wedding announcement will never be ugly to you, because it's yours. I still love mine."

I asked if she still had it, and she said it was just out in the front room in a cabinet! We went and found it, and next to it were these pretty linens. She said they were her 'trousseau' from her wedding, then she gave them to me. 

I love this. They are so lovely, and it is when I was/am living with her that I became a bride too~

Happy Day Moment #57

A call from my {future} mother in law asking me to go to dinner! Just us. I'm so grateful she's so kind, and that I honestly, genuinely, really do like her.

100 Happy Days -- Days 54&55

Happy Day Moment #54

Sneak attach study-break-snacks.
Managed to sneak upstairs (with permission from his mom and dad ... obvi) and knock on his door to give him his favorite soda... for energy of course.
Surprise! And I quote, "oh hey! Was NOT expecting you!"

His aunt and uncle are in town, so the first door I knocked on upstairs was answered by someone I was not expecting. Looks like we all got a little surprised.

Happy Day Moment #55

Wet hair and clean jammies after a shower.
