Great thing are happening!

In the past week or so, we have gotten a dog, a church to get married in, ordered invitations, picked up my dress, picked out tuxes, and taken engagement pictures.

Yep, that's right. We got a dog. His name is Baron.
He is a black "retrievador" from the Atlanta Humane Society. He is 6 months old and is such a good puppy! He is such a great ball player! He loves to play all the time, too. We are so glad to have him.

We finally have a church. For some unknowable circumstances we couldn't get the Cathedral at St. Phillip's. But we do have Church of the Atonement in Sandy Springs. The wedding will go at 1:30 pm on the 4th of December 2010.

I can't tell you much about my dress because Evan reads this too. And he doesn't want to know anything about it until 1:30 pm on Saturday, Dec 4, 2010. So, you all will just have to wait with him unless you visit me and see it hanging in my closet.

We went with a nice black and white, monogrammed invitation. Be expecting it in the mail soon.

Tuxes. We went with Savvi formal wear. The groomsmen will be in black tuxes with gold vests and ties. Evan will have a red vest and tie. And Joey and Cameron will be wearing black vests with a striped black and white tie which I think will go great with the newly finished ring bearer pillows, thanks to Kim.

And to finish the day off, Evan and I had our engagement photo session with Jason Travis. We had a blast! We started out at Tanyard Creek Park off of Collier Rd. We spent about an hour and a half there. Then we changed outfits and moved to a location in Midtown between Ponce de Leon and North Ave. It is part of The Beltline, an former train track that is being restored to bring back attention to it. We had so much fun! I know I said that already, but Jason made the photo shoot very enjoyable. We should be getting the pictures back soon and I don't think I can wait that long! You'll see some when we get them.

After much begging, pleading, and debating, Evan and I finally got a dog yesterday.

His name is Baron. He is a 6 month old labriever (black labrador/ retriever). We think he has something else in him. Looking closely at his face and legs, you can see specs of gold. He is partially trained. He can sit, fetch, and he comes to you when you call him. The funny thing about Baron is that he's scared of dogs.

I went walking with him last night. We were in sight of a smaller puppy (maybe a foot tall). When Baron spotted this puppy, he stopped and if it weren't for the leash he was attached to, he would have been around the corner of the building. But he loves people!

As we were leaving the Atlanta Humane Society yesterday, the adoption-mobile drivers were returning. Once they saw our new dog leaving the shelter, they were so happy for him. One of the ladies commented that we had made her day because our wonderful dog whom she adored was being adopted finally. The other lady said that he was a wonderful dog and fabulous to play ball with. It almost made me cry because they were reinforcing the decision we made to get Baron. We literally spent hours at the shelter trying to find a dog to take home. We don't regret our decision one bit.
