Engagement Photos

Hello All!

The wedding is coming quickly! With all those preparations and my new job I haven't posted in a very long time :(

So if anybody is still checking in on me... check out our pics from Clinton Lewis. You can browse them by going to http://www.studioauspex.com/ then clicking on clients and then brittany vinson and then at the top where it says categories there is an edit section where we had him put some of our faves... otherwise you'll have to look through all 3 hundred and some. Hope you enjoy!

Painting our House

We've gotten all the ceilings painted, two coats on the living room and hallway walls, and just started working on the trim last night. I was working on a window and Grant started painting the inside of the door. To my luck Dad walked in the door about when the window was getting tricky (it didn't take long). So I got to hand over my brush to a professional and take a few pics. Here are some pics of it coming along...

Happy to be supervising :)

Long Time No Post

I would like to dedicate this post to my oldest sister Leanne. She has sent two emails and given me in-person harassment due to my lack of posting this week.

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:

Successful Day

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.

  1. Lunch @ Fazoli's
  2. Allergy Doctor's Appt: new medicine (the grandfather of Zyrtec), eye drops, and an appt in three weeks for an allergy test
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. Picked up Grant's wedding band at Brinker's..one of the biggest purchases I've ever made!
  6. Mother's Day gift for Mom and checked on bridal registry at Baker's Rack
  7. Snack turned supper at Steak-n-Shake. Chocolate milkshake and fries were wonderful!
  8. Luggage research for our upcoming international travels
  9. Mother's Day gift for Mammaw Steele
  10. Drive Home
  11. Wal-Mart trip in CC
  12. Watched Grey's Anatomy....crazy!

Moving Out

Lots of family came up Saturday around lunch time to help me move out of my apartment. We went to Cane's and Moe's for lunch then started the process. Here's a pic of my home away from "home" for the last two years. Everyone was surprised at the number of steps to go up and down!
Near the end...

We were almost finished... then I remembered my bathing suit was in my dresser drawer! And there was a pool and hot tub at the hotel! So luckily Chad was able to shimmy to the back and get it out! Woo hoo!

2BC Shower

What a wonderful shower we had! Special thanks to Martha R, Connie L, Sarah C, and Brooke G for throwing it. There was a spread of fruits, veggies, petitfours, and other goodies inside the parlor while we opend lots of gifts in the foyer. We got so many good things for our future home. We are so blessed to have friends and family who love us so much to give so generously. Martha had everyone gather in a circle around us at the beginning of the shower and they prayed over us. That was really special. Thank you to everyone who made that such a great shower.

My final finals to be exact. I am 1 study guide, 2 quizzes, 2 papers, 6 finals, and one moving day away from graduation! I am really excited and I have lots to blog, but it will have to wait until next week.

Please pray for me with all I have going on this week with finals and homework and packing!
Also pray for my family as they travel to Lex this weekend for the commencement.

I've been on my Zyrtec and Nasonex for a while now, but I am still feeling the itching in my eyes. Apparently a lot of people around me are probably feeling it too.

Happy Earth Day!

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?

Only a few more days...

until I am a college graduate! I am full-speed-ahead finishing up my 18 hours of classes. So from now until May 2nd it'll be lots of education video summaries, music lessons and assessments, and test studying.

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 :)

UK student killed in hit-and-run near campus

UK student killed in hit-and-run near campus - Campus News

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.

RPC Wedding Reception

I decided to change my header to look less wintery. I wanted to also do a bridal theme since we are in the double digits countdown to the wedding! Here's a pic from my wedding photographers site. This couple had a private tropical wedding then came home to celebrate with friends and family for a big reception. I've listed at the bottom of my page the contact info for the photographer, Clinton Lewis.

Miss Bachelorette

Whitney got me a "Miss Bachelorette" Sash and it had blinking lights!

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.

Organics @ VS

Here's my latest shopping spree. I didn't even have to pay for it! Leanne got me a VS gift card for my birthday back in January and I finally found the perfect items to use it on! I'm really happy to see more stores offering organic products. I even switched Dad over to organic milk! Thanks for a great shopping day and some really cute stuff Leanne!
