I Love *This* Man

I feel the need to be a total goober and gush about the handsome face above. That's right, I'm marrying that man...with the face. And why? You may be asking (after taking a gander then shuddering). Because he is not only good to me and his mom, but to everyone around him. He's just all around nice. And in the crazy, mixed up, selfish, backwards world we're living in today, a little Christian kindness counts for a lot. Example: he bought me a professional racing bathing suit, the kind that go down to your knees (think Phelps), just so I would feel more comfortable exercising at the pool. He helps me buy my groceries, makes me dinner and even rubs my feet after long rehearsals. What a guy. Who wouldn't want to come home to that everyday? I can't wait to.
Love you, Che.


I Have No Words For This...



Register (to get stuff)

I'm told it's time to register for all that awesome wedding junk that married couples get for getting hitched. So Tay and I have been working on getting those up and running for you to check out. We have a couple options with many different things on there. The coolest one (in my opinion) is the Ten Thousand Villages- a fair trade group that enables you to purchase hand made stuff for your homes without all that economically irresponsible blech. Even if you don't really see yourself purchasing anything from there, take a look anyway; there are some really neat items on the site. To enable those who prefer more mainstream stores, we've also enlisted Macy's. While they don't have the cleanest record, they seem to be ok as long as you avoid Kohl's.We'll keep updating and adding stuff, maybe another registry, who knows? We are doing our best to avoid Walmart or Target. Did you know they are some of the worst sweatshop employers in the world? Yeah. No thanks. Thus the more nontraditional registries. Now, just because we aren't registering at some of the bigger stores doesn't mean we are going to turn our noses up at anything. Believe us, we will be most grateful for any gift we receive. That being said, we Love you all!

Ck and TW

Urban Outfitters- Check wishlists For Taylor and Courtney Walling (Charlotte, NC). This is primarily for fun, funky decorating...comfy house stuff along with a few super causual dishes. We think our college friends in particular will love this stuff (also anyone who doesn't take themselves too seriously). At least take a look if you're in need of a giggle.
Macy's- Check wedding registries for Taylor and Courtney Walling ( I think), October 09. This is all the fancy dining/kitchen/electronics/baking stuff. We're pretty sure if you don't find stuff on the other registries (or you're not a hippie) you'll dig the stuff on this one. There are literally a billion and half things on here with tons of price ranges. So have at it. (And Thanks!) By the way, those of you on the ball- this one won't be in the system for a few days, so give it until next week probably.
Ten Thousand Villages -Check for Taylor Walling. This one is just awesome. It has some casual glass ware, linens, and homey stuff that married people sign up for. This one is our favorite as its all handmade and fair trade.


Color Me Pretty.

Remember that day long long ago when I promised you a scan of the wedding colors? Well, today I deliver.

You like? I certainly do. The big chunk at the top is the vintage curtain that Mum and I found in Butte this summer. This is the fabric that will be the sash on the brides maids. Love it!

A Little Help from Our Friends.

Hey everybody! Don't you just love the freedom that Friday brings?!

Anyway, Tay came up with a groovy idea for wedding party gifts. We have a wonderful friend, Josh, who went to Africa with Wishing Well. He has an awesome clothing company, Gilgal Clothing. They just so happen to have the coolest tee-shirts in the world. How about this one for everybody---

Go to the site and click on the green shirt on the end. It says "Come Thou Fount", which is one of my favorite songs IN THE WORLD and also one that Tay and I would love to perform at the wedding--- Sigh. Love Love Love Fridays.

check 'em out!
