Costume Party

Britt and I went to my friend Whitney's Costume/Birthday Party. It was a lot of fun! Here are a few pictures from the night...

Lydia - the 20's girl

Brandon - the homeless guy/sign

Brandon again...

Mrs. R - Dorthy
Whitney - Raggedy Anne

Rebecca - Annie
Amy - Cat Woman
Jon - Batman

Jon - Stevens/Nerd

Britt - 80's rocker

Me - 80's girl

We really did have a lot of fun! It is always fun/interesting to dress in costume and see what other people wear. I wish I would have taken more pictures of different people there. I always get too wrapped up in the events though and forget to take pictures. Oh least I got a few.
Thanks for a really fun time Whitney!

More engagement pictures coming! Hopefully sooner than later! :/

For now I thought that I would update you on “life”.

For those of you who do not know I resigned from my job. That may come as a shock to some and to others it may not be surprising at all. The job was just not a good fit for me. I don’t work well at a desk. I need to be with people and interacting. There are no hard feelings at all. Reaching Souls is an amazing ministry and the people there are absolutely wonderful! There is actually a lot more that went into all of this and if you want to know more about it just give me a call. I would be happy to fill you in.

I am now just learning to trust God more and more. I trust Him to provide and I trust Him to be my helper. I guess the hardest thing is trusting his timing. I know though that it is way better than mine. I know that He is working things out for my good and for His glory! What more can I ask?

There is so much change that I know is coming this next year and that I am even not expecting but I am ready. Not because I have all the answers but because I am walking in fellowship with the one that does! Please keep me in your prayers though, that I will trust God and His timing of things. He is faithful!

As soon as I have those other pictures I will post them! We had such a good time taking the pictures! It made things feel so very official!

Love you all and hope that you have a very happy Monday!

Picture Session Preview

Here is a preview of our engagement pictures. We had two photographers, my mom and a good friend of ours. These are from my moms camera and I am waiting on the one from our friend. When I get those I will post them. We looked at my friends camera mostly (she is our actual photographer) so my moms are from a different angle but I will upload the others when I get them. Enjoy these for now!

It Never Stops!

What never stops you might ask? LIFE! It always seems to just keep going and going and going. People, this thing we call life is NOT a bored game! Sometimes I wish it was that easy. *Sigh*

When I about it I really am glad that I am more busy than not. I think that if I was not time would drag on.

It is Thursday. I like Thursdays! That means that tomorrow is Friday and the last day of work for the week! :D I also go to Paradigm on Thursday nights at OU with Britt. We both really enjoy doing that.

I am not sure, other than work, what tomorrow holds. I think that is a good thing. :)

Saturday on the other hand may be a little more full. I have to get up at about 7am. *Yucky!* But the reason for it is good. We are going to go and have Engagement pictures made. I am so excited. I have several outfits picked out for us and the locations. We are going to do them in downtown Norman and on OU campus. I will post some as soon as I can!

I have been making a lot of decisions recently. I hope to be able to expound more on this in the near future but if you could all just pray for me and that God would direct my path and what I should do.

I was talking to Britt last night about his school. He is busy for sure with 18 hours and a job. I admire him so much though for his hard work. I think that he is enjoying his job, as much as you can enjoy a job which is good.

I hope that everything is well with all of you "readers" out there. I am really not sure who all reads this. Sometimes I want to put a picture that says "Hi Mom" because I know at least she will see it. ;) hehe....

If all of you ladies want to know just how amazing of a man that I have well then check this out...

He is so sweet. I got these last weekend actually when we went out on a date with his friend Clayton and Jenny. Clayton and Britt planned "The Amazing race Date" for us.
(Aka - a scavenger hunt.) It was the cutest/sweetest thing ever. Out prize at the end for completing it all was flowers. It was so much fun. Lots of good memories made. I would post pictures but Jenny has them on her camera. :p
Well....enough rambling for now. I hope that you are all having a good week. It is more than half way over and the weekend will finally arrive! *Yeah!*
Happy Thursday!

Welcome to the new blog. I (Lauren) will probably be the one updating this. I wanted to have a place though where you can keep up with Britt and my life. I will be posting on this blog from now on. (So make sure you add us to your blog list!) ;)

If I was to give you an update right now I would say that life is pretty good. Wedding plans are coming along and we are looking more and more forward to "The Big Day". I do have to remind myself that I am not only preparing for the "day" but more importantly for a lifetime together.

We are just now approaching 7 months away. I guess if I had to be exact I would tell you that we are 7 months and 8 days away. I have decided that I will start the "Day Countdown" December 31st. The reason being that when December 31st is here we will be 150 days away form the wedding. Britt was telling me about a couple that he knows and how when they were 150 days out from their wedding they starting reading the book of Psalms backwards starting with Chapter 150 and read one chapter for each day leading up to their wedding. I thought that was a really cool idea so I am going to do it for sure and I am going to try and get Britt to do it with me as well.

Life for us right now is really good. We are both praying about some decisions that we need to make. When I can I will update you on those. If you can't wait then you can always shoot me a personal email or give me a call.

God is so good to direct our path and where we should go. I am learning more and more that my trust must always remain in Him. It can be easy and tempting to only rely on Britt and lean on him but I must remember that he is human. Yes, when we are married he will become my God ordained provider but it is the God that ordained this that will direct and ultimately provide. My Heavenly Father will never fail me or let me down. He is the one that I can always place my completely trust and confidence in. I am learning that when Britt and I together place this trust in God it only brings us closer as a couple. The way that God designed marriage is so amazing to me. I truly hurt for the couples that are missing the most important piece of their marriage, Jesus Christ.

Well, I better run for now but I will try to update on a regular basis. Thanks for visiting the new site and I hope that you enjoy.
