We had a busy weekend last weekend. First Nick decided it was about time I owned my first pair of cowboy boots. So Friday Night we headed to Chuck's Boots and looked at hundreds of boots. Most of them were awful, I mean awful! We saw pink boots, teal sparkly boots, white boots and much much more. We did manage to find 2 pairs in my size that were acceptable and finally settled on the one's above. So I am now the proud owner of my very own pair of cowboy boots.
Saturday we took a beautiful drive through Illinois to visit my sister, niece and some friends who were at a retreat center in Carlinville. It really was a beautiful fall day for a drive and we spent the afternoon hanging out and I learned how to knit! When I say that I mean that I learned a how it is supposed to work, but I'm not sure I was very good at it and my creation didn't look like much of anything, but hey everybody has to start somewhere, right?
Sunday was a big day. We got up early and met our photographer at Busch Stadium to start our engagement picture session. We took a bunch of pictures there and then headed to the Arch to take more. It was a lot of fun but also a bit exhausting. After our engagement picture session we headed to our new church to attend the New Member Class.
It was a busy weekend that definitely wasn't long enough but we got some important things crossed off our list!
