No. 1 — On Sunday we said goodbye to one of our priests at St. Joesph’s, Fr. Dennis. Father was a hoot, always so personable and just a great evangelizer. He truly will be missed, by the hourlong wait we had to say goodbye! Yes, there was a line, and it was still long when we left. Father was going to marry us next year, and we worried that because he was running a hermitage, he would no longer fill that role. WE WERE WRONG! We can request to have him be our celebrant. This makes me a happy Catholic, because I want someone we have a connection to and that will be loving and inviting during our wedding, as many of our guests are of other religions or none at all. (Not that the other priests at St. Joseph’s aren’t great; they are amazing, too! We just have a relationship with Fr. Dennis.
No. 2 — Meeting 2 with another photographer, NOVA Studios. They were awesome, too, and do a lot of work for a great deal. Now on to one more photography studio and then the final decision!
No. 3 — Trying to find “our song” has been a pain. How can you find a song that you both like, has the right lyrics AND wasn’t a song between you and your ex? Plus, it needs to be a slow tempo, right? Well, not for us. Somehow Jamieson and I stumbled upon Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros a long time ago and fell in love with the group’s song “Home.” It is a little bluegrass, a little hippy, a little love. I love this song. He loves this song. It is our song.

No. 1 — I am moving my desk back to my old area of the newsroom. It is a bittersweet feeling, because I loved this job and now it is changing. I thought I found my niche, but with journalism, you have to roll with the punches.
No. 2 — I really, REALLY need to change my diet. I was doing some research aka Googling “why can’t I lose any weight?” I found an article that gave possible indicators for being insulin resistant. Oh boy, I have like seven or more of these indicators, despite my blood work for my level always being fine; (and by fine, I mean my doctor never alarms me with it being too high or close to it.)
Anyway, I figured I need to fix my situation and if the issue doesn’t resolve itself in three weeks — three weeks of eating excellent, exercising and NO cheat meals — then I am going to the doctor and asking “WTF!?”.
No. 3 — Oh, wedding, how I loathe you. I am SO stressed out and I hope that goes away, soon. (yea, rrriiigghhhttt.) Now we are on to photographers. By September, I need: to have sent out the save-the-dates, have sent out the wedding announcements, got my dress ordered, have my bridesmaid dresses ordered, picked a photographer, picked a florist, picked a baker for the dessert, have Jamieson order his kilt and the groomsmen their kilts/tuxedos.
Bridezilla, here I come.

I am sorry I have been behind. This post was supposed to be Three Things Thursday, but Tuesday’s post was supposed to be photos from our recent trip to Michigan. Well, I didn’t take any photos.
Also, I missed my wordless Wednesday chance, but this Thursday will be partially wordless anyhow.
Here are some of our engagement photos:
