how i lost 4 pounds in a year

Okay, okay so you've probably already assumed that this will not be a "how to lose weight" post, because....well....I haven't. 
 Although I was extremely happy to hear from my doctor that instead of being fat, I actually had lost 4 pounds since the last time I was in (which I stupidly and quickly reminded him was over a year ago). 
But hey, I didn't gain weight, so that's a win right? 
(photo is of one of my favorite local ice cream places... because a post on weight lost should always include a fatty food picture...but since this technically ins't a "weight lose" post, then it doesn't count)

So speaking of weight... I know that I should be working on that, you know, with a wedding dress to fit into soon and all. But getting motivated, even for that has been ridiculously hard. I mean, can't I just wear Spanx on top of Spanx, on top of Spanx?

So do any of y'all have weight loss methods that have actually worked?? Maybe some that still involve eating decent food, because I am a major fan of my carbs and sweets! (Insert sad face here.) So please share your stories!!

our engagement photos are here!!!

We received our engagement photos this week and I could not be any more excited. Our photographer, Samantha Eckhaus did a fantastic job and the locations we shot at (Park Avenue CDs and a nearby park) were the perfect spots! 

For Christmas we got not 1, but 2 record players (one is in a suitcase and travels!! which is in the photos), so we've been going record shopping like crazy, and this record shop was just the perfect location. I also made Austin bring his guitar, because hearing him play is one of my all-time favorite sounds in this world. 
I have to admit, being in front of the camera instead of behind it was a little odd, but it was so much fun, and I credit a lot of that to Austin for making me laugh and Samantha for putting us at ease!

So pardon the heavy photo overload that is about to happen, but there were to many amazing photos to pick from.....
