So Long!

Wow - already end of October. I have obviously been slacking on keeping this blog up-to-date! Sorry!

Anyways, I'm going to start recent and then go backwards (I think I will remember better that way, but bare with me as this may end up being a wordy post).

So recent recent, my mom and I went to taste-test a cake at Eagle Eye (Naomi Batterbee) last night. We tried 4 different flavors, all which were so yummy! Rob and my dad got to taste as well, although they didn't go with us, she had just prepared a few extra servings. She sketched a real simple and elegant design for our cake and we, with no hesitation, signed her on as our official wedding  cake baker! So one more thing to cross off the list as done! Now just need to make sure on the flavors, but since it is so early in the game we could change that up to a few weeks before. No worries.

Go backwards a few more days, Saturday, April October 22, mom and I met with Sarah at Eagle Eye to go over linens and get questions answered. We left very pleased, an estimated cost in hand, and even got some clever ideas from the two receptions that were setting up - yet again, Success!

Prior to that Rob got a deer!! A nice one compared to the dog deer he got last year. Photo below (sorry, deer is a little messy...)

And shortly after my last post - a new member joined the family. Mr Asher Leo Nance, made his grand debut on 10.10.11. He is so cute - I cannot wait to snuggle him when they come to Michigan Christmas time


Save the Date - April 21, 2012

Tomorrow Save the Dates will be mailed. Until you receive those, enjoy this video from Drew, our videographer!!


Well this weekend was opening day for bow hunting. I went out all 4 times with Rob and we had a lot of luck, seeing-wise, not shooting-wise. We saw a lot of does and fawns and Sunday we saw 2 bucks.

In the morning, we had what I think was a 8-pt buck go right underneath our stands and neither of us could get a clear shot. Rob was so bummed.

Sunday night, a 6 pt came in my range and I got a major adrenaline rush and was so shaky I couldn't get my sites set straight on the poor buck. Lucky him, as had my shot been less shaky, I may have had the confidence to shoot.

Better luck next time, but all in all, I consider it successful for my first time.

Here's to less buck fever in the future!
