Grant and I have found a house to rent. It's actually my mammaw's rental house. The family hasn't sold it yet so we are going to rent for a while. We have started painting the ceilings and the doors. It needs a little TLC from the last renter... he enjoyed putting 3 different colors of walls in the living room! So we are putting lots of neutrals up and paint all the trim white again to makie it look spiffy! It will hopefully also improve the house for when it goes on the market.
Here are a couple pics of our picnic the other night. We had to load up a pot and grab some goodies from our "shower room" (Mom's previous guest bedroom :) )
The Makings of our first picnic
oops I guess I didn't remember to put the meat in the pic... oh well!
Here is the master of the midget grill:

Mom took a day off yesterday so we could meet with some people and get lots accomplished for the wedding. We were successful I must say.
- Lunch @ Fazoli's
- Allergy Doctor's Appt: new medicine (the grandfather of Zyrtec), eye drops, and an appt in three weeks for an allergy test
- Meeting with our florist. We finished up some details with the bouquets and reception table cloths. Also go all the info for the guys' tuxes
- Dress fitting for me and Mom at Elizabeth's. I also bought the earrings I will be wearing and found the shoes I want to get. Go back in 2 weeks for next fitting.
- Picked up Grant's wedding band at Brinker's..one of the biggest purchases I've ever made!
- Mother's Day gift for Mom and checked on bridal registry at Baker's Rack
- Snack turned supper at Steak-n-Shake. Chocolate milkshake and fries were wonderful!
- Luggage research for our upcoming international travels
- Mother's Day gift for Mammaw Steele
- Drive Home
- Wal-Mart trip in CC

I am really excited about Earth Day this year since I am trying extra hard to be green. I hope some of you are too! Things I am trying right now:
-less water when washing dishes, shaving legs, brushing teeth
-using reusable water bottles and food storage
-buying organic as much as possible
-turning off & unplugging anything not in use
-driving less (which is hard since I am still in Lex and driving home)
-using less paper (double-sided printing)
-no plastic bags at the grocery and other stores. I either carry a smal load or bring my own bag
What are you doing?

This Thursday is the Grant's birthday and Sunday is our 2BC Church Bridal Shower. So I am looking forward to a big weekend. I know we should have lots of fun!
Did you see the Biggest Loser Finale tonight? We finally got a female winner! I say finally, but this is the first time I have ever watched more than maybe one show in a season. I caught this one about halfway through and it's been pretty cool watching their transformations... if only I could get more inspired to get healthy. They are so in shape! Makes me tired just writing about it :)

Please be in prayer for this girl's family and her friends on campus. There was a memorial service tonight on campus. Her funeral and burial will be at her home town in Utah.
I didn't know her personally, but she was on the equestrian team with one of my sorority sisters. They were good friends and from all I hear she was a great person.
Her sister welcomed her first child into the world on the same day she died. This is surely a very stressful time for a family with such tragedy and joy so close together.

Here's the group of girls at my personal shower. We had one more girl show up a little late.
I had it in Lexington where I was able to invite some high school friends and my sorority sisters.
Special thanks to my bridesmaids Holly for throwing it and to Whitney for hosting the games.
