our love story - part two

Here is Part 1 if you missed it.


After we got engaged, the next few months were a whirlwind! We set the wedding date for August 29, only 19 weeks from our engagement. Chris was going to Iraq for 10 weeks that summer and we knew our time together before he left the country was limited. So we got busy!
In May...
we took our engagement pictures
(by the oh so talented Lauren Dennard)



I graduated with my Bachelor's of Science in Nursing

I moved to College Station into what would be 'our' place in August


we took a trip to Disneyworld with Leisha's family


In June...
had to say goodbye for 10 weeks. very sad day :(

took my NCLEX (and PASSED!) and started my first real job
(only pictures I have of 'work' are ones I sent Chris of me in my scrubs)

went wedding dress shopping and found the perfect one

sent out a ton of wedding invitations

we did a LOT of this while trying to plan a wedding being 7200 miles apart


I picked out wedding cake (with my parents' help!)
{just a side note...cake/icing tasting is AWESOME for this sweets lover!!}

In July...
Chris was a hot shot over in Iraq




I got to open lots of wedding presents! Usually Chris and I would iChat when we would get one in the mail and open it together


I celebrated my 22nd birthday. Even though Chris was all the way on the other side of the world, he still thought to send me flowers. :)


In August...
CHRIS CAME HOOOOOME!!! 
The most exciting part of the summer and I don't have a picture. Lame.

I took my bridal portraits (by the oh so talented Lauren Dennard)

Chris graduated with his Bachelor's of Science in Agricultural Communication and Journalism

We got MARRIED!!
