Again, this is just my dream home. I highly doubt we ever have a house that has ALL of these things. Derek has already told me that we better start house hunting a year early because he knows how picky I am going to be :) Now on to pictures
I like the little decks upstairs
Disregard the treadmill in the bathroom. Heck no!
A little something for Derek

These aren't the invitations I want but I love the pocket invitations. I like how simple and organized they are. Now if I could just find a design I love.
Derek already told me no because their too expensive. Fun hater :)
Monogrammed wedding cake
I may not get my monogrammed stamps but we are going to have our initials monogrammed on our cake!
This website is my lifesaver! I get emails telling me what I should get done each month for the wedding, it has TONS of pictures of centerpieces, dresses, etc and it will calculate how you should spend your money after you put in your budget. LOVE!

Derek and HazelHalle and Hazel
All of us passed out (Hazel was upstairs sleeping)
Having a toast before the guests arrive
Her wedding invitation
The hostesses with the future bride
All of us with grandma (Aiden wasn't in the pic cause he was naked after eating a cupcake)
Handsome boys ready for the shower
And most importantly, I got a phone call yesterday saying my wedding dress is in!!!! It wasn't supposed to be in until the end of Decemeber so I am super excited! I need to call and set up an appt to try it on and then I just have to wait for the other piece of it and my veil!!!!

...is the oldest and is 6 years older then me. Poor guy was always being begged to play house, play with barbies, etc. I luckily don't remember this but he told us girls that he used to let us play hide and seek with him and his friends and he would go have us hide and then never come find us. haha! I think he always wished one of us girls was a boy and now he has finally gotten his "little brother" by volunteering for Big Brothers and Big Sisters. His "little brother" is just as lucky as us girls are. He would do anything in the world for his sisters and he spoils us (and our niece and nephew) like crazy. He is hilarious and super nice. I love my big brother to death!

I wish I got a dollar everytime someone told me I looked like my dad. I may look like him but I can only hope to be as good of a person as he is. He is the most loving, caring, hardworking man there is. He has built almost every single home we have lived in (I think that's 5 houses), worked a part time job for awhile just so us kids could have a nice home, working cars, new clothes, etc. Growing up and even after us kids left home for college, we would always get together for Sunday dinners. Nobodys cooking compares to my dads. It's seriously the best food ever! It was tough moving away from my dad last year but we are only 2 hours apart and I still seem him almost every weekend. He calls me his mom because I am always calling him to check up on him. I love my dad and will always be daddys girl.

15 interesting facts:
1. I am engaged to my wonderful fiance Derek and we will be getting married 4/30/11!
2. I am the youngest of 4 and have 1 brother and 2 sisters
3. I have and always will be daddys girl. I am so lucky to have such a caring, hardworking dad.
4. I have 2 shih tzus who are my babies (Zoe and Elsie)
5. I have to sleep with a fan on and complete darkness
6. Speaking of sleep, I love to sleep but can't take naps.
7. I want 4-5 kids (yes, Derek is fully aware of this)
8. I could eat Mexican everyday. I love salsa and cheese dip!
9. I love Target. If I had more money, I would go everyday
10. I have to drink a diet coke or diet pepsi everyday. I get a headache if I don't
11. I HATE working out. Whoever said give it a couple weeks and you will start liking it was WRONG!
12. I am very close to my family. I could never move out of state because I would miss them way too much! My nephews and nieces are the best!
13. I was born and raised a K-State fan. I believe my blood is purple
14. I love reality tv. Kate Plus 8, Teen Mom, One Tree Hill. The list goes on and on
15. I have a list of 25+ kids names I started my freshmen year of college. Sad thing is, I still like the majority of them! Guess we'll just have to have 50 kids so I can use all my names :)
Day 2: Meaning behind your blog name
I started this blog to remember everything that went into planning our wedding and to continue it once we have kids. The song Little Moments Like That by Brad Paisley popped into my head and I thought it was perfect! I didn't want something with my name because once we have kids, I am sure my blog will mostly be about them and not me :)
Day 3: Your first love:
Obviously my parents were the first people I loved but to give an example of how I have always been a daddys girl I read once in my baby book that when I was a baby I would get fussy around the time my dad would be getting home everyday. As soon as he would walk in the door, I would be as happy as could be. I love my family and I am so lucky to live so close to each one of them.

Back to our engagement pictures. Amber, my mom, and me went shopping aalll day Saturday here in KC and found me 3 cute outfits to wear. Then I got home and told Derek what he needed to go out and buy to match me :) Our awesome photographer is coming from Manhattan to take our pictures here in KC! I gave her some ideas of what I wanted for the pictures and left the location up to her. We are starting at Nelson Atkins Museum area and then we might go to Kauffman gardens when we are done shooting there. I am so excited and nervous for our pictures. I don't think Derek and I are very photogenic so I hope we get atleast a few good ones.
Sorry to post and not add any pictures but I will have tons to add after this weekened!

And he occasionally records a football or basketball game if he is not home or I don't let him watch it :)
Now for my list. I will start with my all time favorite
One Tree Hill! My roomate got me hooked on it about 3 years ago and I absolutely love it now.
The rest are in no particular order
I am team Kate 100 percent. Yes, she can be bossy but how could you not with that many kids?
The only thing on MTV I watch
Real Housewives of New Jersey. I only watch the New Jersey and Orange Country housewives
Quints By Surprise. Adorable family and I am obsessed with their kids names
I dont know how they do it but I love watching this family
And the last one I love watching but don't record it because it's on a lot so our DVR would fill up super fast is
This show REALLY makes me want to buy a house. I told my brother we are going to be on this show one day and he is going to be our realtor. He ruined the show a little bit for me by saying that it's actually not the peoples first time looking at the houses. They have to have already made an offer on one of the houses to be on the show. Thanks a lot Tony :) Still love it though!
