P.S. Being normal = win.

Ok, so let me clarify what I mean by normal.

I've had the amazing opportunity to work in ministry for the past six years. But working in ministry generally comes with a really odd schedule. D and I currently do not have a day off together. My day off is Monday, he has regular weekends.

This week we experienced Monday AND Tuesday off together. I loved it. We tried to make the most of our time - not wanting to spend it all on wedding planning. We spent the days listening to classical music for the ceremony, going through our DJ packet, choosing paint samples, purchasing paint, watching the original Karate Kid, cooking together, viewing Toy Story 3 (I think I'm still crying) and just enjoying running errands together... in the same city... in the same car.

Here are some photos from our cooking escapades. (P.S. You can see the paint samples on the walls if you look closely enough!)

And yes. That meal was less than 300 calories.

Ok. So maybe it was more like 3,000 calories... but it was worth it. (p.p.s. I also get this look when I start dancing in Home Depot, Crate & Barrel, Pottery Barn... you get the idea.)

100 days people. 100 days.

Having your fiancee cook for you - that ain't normal. It's heaven!
