Weekend Recap!

I absolutely LOVE LOVE weekends. They are so refreshing to me, just what I need come Friday.

This weekend was wonderful. I got to do a few of my favorite things including shopping, carving pumpkins, and spending time with my family. 

And afterwards, My little sister Jodell and my pup Remi were very tired...

How was you're weekend!?
and of course....HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Happy Fall Friday!

YAY! We have finally made it to Friday!! I still say it is unfair we have to work 5 days and only get 2 off...who came up with that idea?
I am so excited for this will be full of Fall fun! Fall is one of my FAVORITE times of year aside from Christmas. It is so beautiful, and I love all the Fall activities, scents, and decor.

How can you not love Fall? GORGEOUS!

Tonight we are getting together with a group of friends to get scared at a haunted hay ride and corn maze. We went last year and it was by FAR the best hauted event I have ever been too so I am thrilled to go again. Best yet, Sean won free tickets in a contest! SCORE!

Saturday I am spending the day with my mom, sisters, and the boy I PCA for. Technically its working, but its hard for me to call it work when we are going shopping, baking cookies, making carmeled apples, and watching halloween movies! FUN!

Sunday I plan on relaxing with my husband (still love saying that lol), and getting some stuff done around the house....its so hard to find the motivation!

What are you doing this weekend??

A good sick?

Today I am home sick, and I actually don't mind.
I have pink eye....yuck I know. I am dealing with the dreaded watering, crusty, goobery eye....but I am okay with it.
I think that pink eye is the best sickness to have if you're going to be sick. I don't feel under the weather, but I can't go to work because I am contagious. This means I can use this day to get stuff done around the house, catch up on some much needed rest and relaxation, and of course hang out with my pup!
I think I can handle that :)

Happy Wednesday friends!

1. reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, surety, etc., of a person or thing; confidence.
There are very few people in my life that I completely trust. I could probably even count them on one hand. When you read the definition of trust above, what do you feel? I know I feel a little nervous, scared, unsure......I have been working on trusting more...especially trusting in the Lord
As most of you know, Sean and I have just recently started our lives together on our own. It has been tough...both financially and taking on all the new responsibilites that come with a house. On top of it all we are newlyweds so it can be difficult at times to focus on eachother and not all the other "things" that are getting thrown at us left and right. I have been struggling to trust, to trust in the Lord that he has a plan and will faithfully lead me. Everything works out right? I keep trying to tell myself this.
I came across this the other day and it really tugged at my heart strings.
"If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it"
Happy moments-Praise God
Difficult moments-Seek God
Quiet moments-Worship God
Painful moments-Trust God
Every moment-THANK God
I will continue to remind myself of this each and every day :)

The Day I said I DO!! 9-17-11

WHEW!!! I finally have a chance to sit down and blog!! As you can see my friend Jessie over at I'm wife and Mama Now! re-designed my blog to fit all the big changes that I have had in my life over the past couple months. What do you think? I am very excited about it, and excited to be back in the blogging world. Make sure to take my new button as well :)

Now that Sean and I have been married for a little over a month, (can't believe how time flies) it's about time I share our wedding day with photos. First I want to give credit to the amazing Ria over at Life as a Wife! who I feel so blessed to have had photograph my big day! Thanks again Ria, I am totally in love with each and every photo!

The night before the wedding we each got a suite at a hotel to spend the evening with our bridal party. When we woke up that morning we got ready for the big day and anticipated seeing eachother for the first time.

FINALLY!!! I got to see my man!

I can't even describe the feeling I felt seeing him for the first time....I was so ready to say I do and be his wife forever and ever!

Then it was time to say I do!

I was FINALLY MRS.GRADY!!  I had been waiting to marry this man since I met him at the age of 14!!  Then we were all ready to party!

Our wedding day was seriously the BEST DAY OF MY LIFE! All the love, and support from our friends and family was overwhelming...our day couldn't have been more special or perfect!
