Truman had friends coming to stay with us this weekend so I decided it was the perfect opportunity to try out some new recipes. One of my favorite wedding gifts was a breakfast cookbook from William Sonoma. I cannot function without breakfast so I plan on trying them all...and sharing pictures of course! This was my first time making cinnamon rolls of any kind so I was a little nervous. I'm very happy with the outcome and can't wait to enjoy them before church!

Have a blessed Sunday!

Wedding Preview

Micah (our wedding photographer) is coming up to Omaha this weekend to show us our wedding photos. It feels like Christmas!! He sent me a few sneak peeks so I thought I would share...

I'm a huge advocate for Micah. If you're getting married and need engagement pics, etc. you should really consider him!

Honeymooners Pt. 2

I didn't take many pictures in Portland because I didn't want to lug my camera around all day so most of these pictures are found on the internet. We wanted to stay in a boutique hotel since Portland is known for its "hip-ness" (real word?). Ace Hotel was somewhat affordable and had a Stumptown in the hotel lobby--we were sold. The hotel was very different. Artwork covered the walls and we could hear the The Rolling Stones blasting from the lobby. The place was filled with cool kids.

The first thing we did was go to Powell's Book Store a.k.a. heaven. The store took up the whole block. Needless to say, we spent quite a while inside. Across from the hotel was a theater called Living Room Theatre. We noticed they were playing independent films so we decided to check it out. I am so thankful we did! It was my favorite part of the trip. There was a lounge in the front where you could drink wine, eat dinner, snack on delicious truffles, or have a cup of coffee. When the movie started, you would take your things into the theater and finish them there. It was wonderful! I had a latte a caramel salted truffle while we watch the movie "Ceremony". All three things were delightful. Watching movies in Nebraska won't be good enough for me anymore.
We also had to check out Voodoo Doughnut because it was on the Food Network once. It was quite the experience! The entire building was pink. What's even weirder is the fact that heavy metal was blasting through those pink 7:30 in the morning. Nothing like a screaming man to wake you up in the morning... The doughnuts were just fine. They tasted like any other doughnut would taste, but it was fun to try it anyway.
We did a lot of eating and walking around (and did a teeny bit of shopping since he loves me so much). It was a fun and clean city that we would definitely visit again.

Honeymooners Pt. 1

Hello friends!
I'm back and this is my first blog as a married woman! (Wow--still getting used to saying that.) The wedding was swell and I can't wait to share pictures and blog about our special day. Until then, I thought I would share with you some pictures of our honeymoon in Portland, Oregon.

Since Truman's bro is a pilot, we were able to get stand-by tickets for cheap. However, this meant we weren't guaranteed a spot on the plane so we had to wake up extra you can see Trums is not a morning person.
We stayed at The Resort at Mt. Hood for the first two nights to take time to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of the outdoors. After a crazy week of wedding happenings, we knew there was no way we would have the energy to hit the city first. The drive to the resort was beautiful--completely green and covered with tall trees. Think Colorado times 10.

We pampered ourselves by ordering room service and getting a couples massage at the spa. It was our first time getting massages and we had a blast. If I could get one every week I would! Thankfully, we agreed to start a tradition and get massages for every anniversary. 
After a day of relaxing, we hit the trails and did some hiking. The weather was a little too chilly for me so we didn't last long.

When we headed for Portland, we decided to take the scenic route all the way around Mt. Hood. We were told that there were little towns with fruit farms and wineries which was true. Unfortunately we were a little early in the season to catch the excitement. The drive was still beautiful.

Right before hitting Portland, we stopped at the nation's second largest waterfall: Multnomah Falls. It was breathtaking. Cold, but breathtaking. The sound of the water bursting over the cliff was frightening and peaceful at the same time.

The mountains were just what we needed before we hit the craziness of Portland. 
More to come!

I'm going to come right out and say it... I creep. 
That's right-- I do my fare share of creeping on occasion. It's fun to see where others are at in their life even if I don't know them well or only know them from the past. Anyway, I was doing a little creeping on this gal one day and heard of this husband and wife from Tennessee called "Action!". 
They are awesome. Usually I assume local bands are going to sound like every other musician out there, but I should have known better since it was coming from Tennessee. 

Anyway, check their music video out. It's wonderfully weird and enticing. PLUS you can download the song for free here
Most of my friends know me as the playlist queen and with the big day coming up, I am spending the afternoon making playlists for the wedding day & trip to Portland. I will share soon!

Engagement Session

Truman and I met up with Micah again for our last engagement picture session. The weather was beautiful but, of course, it was sooo windy. (Praying Nebraska will be nice to me on the big day).
Here are just a few pictures from the day. 

Hello, spring!

It was a wonderful day. I really felt the presence of spring which made me incredibly excited for the 11 days!!!! I started working on all the crafty projects that I've been putting off and they are turning out exactly as I planned. *Sigh of relief* Here's a little sneak peak...

 I love the vintage feel that newspaper articles give so I wanted to use them for decorations.

 And voila!

This was a lot of fun and didn't take more than an hour(ish). They may even make for cute apartment decorations. Can't wait to show more, but I'm saving it for my wedding blog...
