I like to hold hands.

The title has nothing to do with the post. That, however, does not make it not true.

Today Clint started a new job at an engineering firm. Everyone say it: SWEEETTT!!! So naturally, I wanted to be a supportive fiance and show my love and appreciation for such a hard worker. I headed to the dollar dollar store to pick him up some items he might need in this new transition into "big kid life".

dun dun da dunnnnnnnn....

Aren't I the best significant other ever? Just kidding, he is. Doesn't change the fact that he loved his big kid gift. What grown up couldn't use a sure fire gun [what is that anyway?], bubbles, and a paddle ball?
So handsome I just can't stand it. So... I karate chopped him. True story. Read on.
These pictures are out of order. But here you can see how small our wedding countdown chain is now. Remember how big it was? For some reason I can't find that post, but feel free to look through for it to counteract my laziness right now.
I did not set up this picture positioning, FYI. I was doing this as a joke while Clint was setting up the camera  and he twisted my arm and demanded I stay like this. However, I think it's hilarious and couldn't deny you the privilige of seeing it.
It's a wee bit blurry. These are our sure fire guns. We had some fun with them. I got Clint good. Once. Maybe that's not true. Maybe we couldn't get the guns to fire. Maybe they fired like a machine gun. Maybe you will never know! Either way, they'll bring entertainment in later days for sure! Can't wait til our next sure fire war. Heck, maybe we'll have one tonight.
blooper! we stink at setting the camera.  What was that? You said you liked my skirt? THANK YOU. This is the last time I am wearing it before donating it. Read my post from yesterday for more information or to learn how to donate. Donating- just do it.
Bet you don't want to mess with us. It's okay, I'd be scared too.
What else did we do last night? I laughed until I cried at Clint's attempt at dance moves. I still have faith he can learn to waltz with me before the big day. He laughed until he cried at my attempt to karate chop [it was legit you guys, promise]. And with my brother who is in town, we watched flight of the concords youtube videos until we laughed so hard we cried. The racist dragon was a hit. Don't know what I mean? You're missing out.
I hope you're laughing right now. Clint introduced me to this show, and my life has never been the same.

Guess what I did today. I was cleaning through my drawers preparing for the move when I stumbled across the funniest picture of my sister from the 90s. Her and some friends took some "glamor shots". If you lived through the 90s, you know. You better believe that I picture messaged it to her husband. When she asked where I found it, I told her I got it out of my blackmail box. She really believed I had one. If I had a scanner, and the faith she wouldn't kill me, I would post the picture.

Okay, time to stop messing around.
We have serious business to attend to.
You see, my friend Breann just started a craft blog.

[sorry about the silly formatting. I stink at techno]
Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, and you better, would be to go visit her blog and check out her latest project. Furniture renovation? YES. It's so fun, and she'll tell you exactly how to do it. I'll keep you guys up to date with my favorite projects of hers, but as for now, she already has several posted!

I do quite love that skirt. Also, best grown up gift ever.

Also, the picture where he made you stay posed that way? His face totally is saying "check out the bootie on THAT blondie". She's the Man, anyone?
