Autumn is approaching!

As we've all seen and felt, Autumn is upon us! And what an exciting time it is. Ever since I was a little girl, the Autumn and Christmas seasons have always been my favorite. The movies, the treats, the smells, the colors, the holiday breaks, the meanings, and my family. Now that I am married, this year will be a very exciting one. I've always participated in years past around Thanksgiving and Christmas, but this year is the year I belong to another family. With that comes great sacrifice, but exceeding awards. Its wonderful to see that my family LOVES my husband and (as I can tell anyway) his family LOVES me. Formulas like these don't come out so smoothly... many people have told me of how they can't stand their in-laws, whether it be mother/father or brother/sister. But there's peace in the Bauder/Watson combo. And for that, I am so grateful. 

For this season, I"ll be doing TONS of crafts:
-making a wreath (done!)
-baking cookies
-making homemade applesauce (check!)
-painting canvases for home decor
-making gifts
-decorating with lights
-making a gingerbread creation
-painting rooms and trim/molding
-and (if it snows) making snowmen, angels, and forts!

I'm so exciting to start the season. But, for now, I have to finish an Econ paper by Monday! Ha, I just had to write a little front my heart. Here is a link to a DIY Thanksigivng Wreath.

As many may know, I'll be a married women in 30 days. With that, comes many changes:

1. I'll have a forever sleeping partner.
2. Moving out and on my own.
3. I'll get to embrace cooking A LOT.
4. There will be times where there are NO animals around.
5. I'll never have another kitty cat as a friend (Nathan's allergic)
6. Joint $$ accounts which changes everything with the government.
7. I get to shop for 2 instead of 1.
8. I'll have another last name.
9. I get another set of parents, etc…
10. I have a person who is a part of me, forever.

:-) change is hard but it is also rewarding.

Here's to Godly marriage!

Guess who's engaged?!?!

It's me, its me! 

The awesome and handsome Nathan proposed a couple days after Thanksgiving. Yeah, I'm about 2 months late in telling the blog-world, but at least I told you! We'll be getting married later this year - haven't set a permanent date, but we're planning it fast and smoothly. I'll be heading to a bridal boutique (maybe Thursday) soooooon! I pray I find 'the one.' I was chatting with my fiance during lunch today and couldn't help but get gushy with him and tell him how excited I am to be his wife. To get flustered at almost 4 years together is quite a phenomenon. It's great to find another who lives like you live and loves what you love. We have so much fun together. A simple car ride is an adventure...

So, there you have it -- My Update! Thanks for reading. May our Lord bless you, abundantly.
