What a whirlwind this past month has been… hard to believe I have been engaged for almost a whole month… and LESS than six months until my wedding… yes the date has been set and I will be getting married May 26th, 2012.
Some Christmas catch up before the New year:
I spent the last few days at my fiancee’s families ranch
We spent a lot of time outside with the lambs, you could say I am mildly in love in livestock… especially baby lambs and calves.
We even went and picked up a couple milk goats and got a bonus… Aaron and I bought a KID… haha he looks something like this:
I loved and loved on these lambs…
Then I loved some more…
Eventually I had to put the little stinkers down and help get some feeding done and also spend some time with my future in laws, but I cannot wait to see more next time I go down.
While down at the ranch we went to a wedding shower for one of Aaron’s friends (he will be in his wedding come late February) and they incorporated us into a game… part of it included advice… and Aaron looked at me and asked- “Do we have anything we can share, I don’t think we can lend any advice!” This made me laugh.
Anyways… after some family time and some wedding planning we headed back to the L-B-K.
Yesterday I ran FOUR miles after not running since I left Indiana (don’t remind me how much of a slacker I was while on the farm… but in my defense I walked as much as possible and ate as much Blue Bell ice cream as possible ;-)… ok ok I was a piglet but that’s ok)
This morning I took off for New Mexico to go to work for my internship. It’s been a busy day and I am taking a brief break before getting back to work on our huge event coming up…
Excited to have a SIX mile run planned for on Saturday with www.texanintraining.wordpress.com and to get to catch up with her… it’s been almost a month since she took me to the airport… CRAZY!!!
In the meantime I am already missing my family and looking forward to seeing them next time I am home… we were very blessed to be able to spend Christmas together!
Hoping to get a workout in at the hotel tonight… then back to the grind of more work.
