Hi! I am absolutely STOKED to be hanging out here at EAD and to start sharing all my crazy wedding planning-ness with you! Back before getting engaged I was a closet wedding-blog stalker. EAD was one of the first sites I stumbled upon and I have been reading daily ever since! In fact I’m pretty sure my productivity at work decreased exponentially when I discovered the library of wedding photographers.
Well I guess I should start by telling you all a bit about myself! Born and raised in Nebraska I am a true Midwest girl. I love Husker Football, Runzas, micro-brews, corn fields, and a lot of other stuff but this could get long… After graduating from the Univ. of Nebraska in 05 with a bachelors degree I decided to attend grad-school at the Univ. of Utah in SLC. Thats where i ran into a cute boy from North Dakota who just happened to be a HUGE Husker fan like myself…needless to say I was smitten. We quickly became inseparable and spent pretty much every night hanging out together from then on.
When Lance finished his Masters he decided to take a job out in Virginia, and six months later I followed. Through connections at school we were able to get jobs with the same company…so we were literally together 24/7…eating, sleeping, working…all of it. As one of my friends once put it, “Man…you guys are like BFFs!” …well yeah isn’t that kind of the point!?! So one thing led to another and now we’re engaged and living in Salt Lake City…again! (Haha…I’ll dive into more detail on how that all played out in my next post…don’t want to turn this one into a yawnfest by going on and on and on…) However, if you are sitting on the edge of your seat and simply MUST know right now…you can skip on over to my personal blog Run, Knit, Get Hitched!…where I tend to ramble on about weddings, cats, knitting, etc, etc, etc.
We are so excited to be back in Salt Lake and planning our June 2010 nuptuals in the destination wedding hotspot that is Nebraska. Planning a wedding in a different state has been tricky but as of yet we haven’t run into too many problems…thanks to some very helpful people back home. I can’t wait to share all my stories with you…bridezilla-ness aside! We’ve been engaged for 8 months already…and we’ve got another 11 to go so this could get interesting.
