Something Saturdays (6/28/14)

So much fun this week! On Sunday I officially felt like I was a. home and b. it's summer! I went to the first Sunday pool party/cookout at my grandma's--we pretty much do this every Sunday all summer long and I've missed it soooo much! I had such a wonderful time with my family and enjoying the sun and the water, ahhh.

I also finally got to enjoy the pool in my complex! My brother and his...Katherine (complicated) came over and we all went swimming. They also made me do laps to work out in the pool. and tiring.

AND IT FINALLY HAPPENED!!! After rescheduling like 4 times we finally took our engagement pictures! We had them set for Wednesday and we just pushed them back 1 day to Thursday and, luckily, that completely worked out! (Thanks to the amazing flexibility and overall awesomeness of our photographer Joe Tate!) I also was able to do a trial run of my hair and makeup that day and completely fell in love with Erica and Joleane (Beauty Therapy)-and officially booked them for the wedding! These girls are so talented and so much fun! I'm so excited to have them come and make me beautiful for the wedding!! They did such a great job on Thursday so I know it'll be perfect. <3 Anyway, we ended up spending about 3 hours taking pictures and it was...weird? Lol it was fun but I'm not used to merging my photo shoot portion of my life with my Michael life, so I think I struggled being completely natural with my like "be pretty" knowledge. But I think we worked it out-and it was fun getting to be all lovey with my favorite boy for a few hours. I think/hope we got some good shots and I can't wait to see them and then share with you guys!

Now, today is Michael's cousin Allison's wedding-I know it's going to be spectacular (like, my wedding will not even have a chance, lol) so I'm super excited for the day and to see how stunning Allison looks (she'll be insanely beautiful, she always is!)

Movies/TV Talk (assume there'll be spoilers)
How to Train Your Dragon 2: This movie was soo good! So cute, just as good as the first-but also like super sad. Just...aww. And Toothless is just too adorable for words.

True Blood-Final seeeeason! Eee! Let's see. Hm. Well, I cannot believe Tara is dead-and sooo quickly! It was like "wha?". I love James (both the old actor and the new) and Jessica. I hate Sookie and Alcide as a couple (although I do enjoy Joe Manganiello). Mmmm and yeah. Those are my main thoughts from the premiere. I know the fact that I read the book is going to be 0 help considering the show is SO far off in a different direction, it's not even the same like at all so I'm curious to see what happens! (Fingers crossed the ending is better than the books' ending)

Teen Wolf-Errrm....whyyy is Derek a teenager? I hope we get grown up Derek back! I also loved the beginning scene where Stiles is all "what makes you think we came alone?" and then it shows Malia, Kira, and Scott in the club. On that note-I like Malia. She reminds me of Anya (from Buffy) for some reason. And...yeah. I'm intrigued by this whole werejaguar business and such. leeeets go!

Pretty Little Liars-What's Hanna's hair gonna look like? I miss Caleb. I hope Ezra and Aria get back together. Obviously I'm concerned about the imp. things.

Hot in Cleveland-Melanie's favorite movie is The Princess Bride: if she wasn't my favorite before, she def. is now!
