We've Finally Set A Date!

Well after much searching and discussion Jeff and I have finally found a location. It is absolutely gorgeous and will provide our guests with everything we wanted. It is on the lake in Austin and the ceremony has a great view. The sun will be setting in the background as well! The inside of the site has large rooms with high cielings and large windows overlooking the lake. We think our guests will enjoy the views there and get a good picture of why Jeff and I like living in Austin so much. Not too mention it has a hotel on site so our guests can just stay there. The website is Go check it out!
We have decided on getting married on December 11,2009. We think that sounds like a good solid date! Let me know what you guys think.

Black Eyed Pea

The venues we looked out this weekend were beautiful. It definately made Jeff and I more aware of what we are looking for and what we think our guests will enjoy. Tomorrow we are going to look at The Allan House, This weekend I am hopefully going to be able to look at the Winfield Inn,, and Vintage Villas, Jeff can't go with me this weekend because he has baseball. Speaking of which he was playing in a tournament this weekend and got popped in the eye with a ball. It broke his skin and he had to go to the emergency room to get stitches. He likes to tell people that this is what I do to him when he misbehaves! He better watch out!

Welcome to the world of blogging

So to all you bloggers out there I have been convinced that this is the newest way to keep in touch so I am fighting all gut instincts and beginning to blog! AAGGHHH!! Please don't expect too much. Anyhow as you all know Jeff and I are planning our wedding so I figured this would be a great way to include you all in our decision planning, especially since I wish you could be here to help me. So far we have decided on an Austin wedding. Date to be determined when we find a location. My good friend Erin is my wedding planner and is amazing. She already has a notebook full of ideas and wedding stuff. Good thing she is here to help! this weekend we got our invitations. I will post a picture of them when I figure out how to do it! This weekend we are going to go to a couple of different venues so check back. I will post the websites too so you can take a look at them.
Well I hope you are all patient with me as I figure out this new technology! It can be quite a challenge for me.
