Date Changed... just by a week.

So, the date and venue have changed for the Haire Affair. The new date is:
 June 25th, 2011
On another note, I saw this picture on a blog and it reminded me of all the fun that falling in love is. I fell in love with Pat all over again.

Amazing what a picture can do.

He finally did it!

Pat has been talking up Sweet Potato Hash Browns since the first time he cooked breakfast for me. He has bought the ingredients a few times, but he has never made the hash browns. Well, Saturday morning, he finally made them.
Here he is in our new kitchen slavin' over a hot stove.
 After we ate and ate, there were some left overs and Pat made himself a Sweet Potato Hash and Egg Sandwich. Brilliant.

N,E,S,W... Moving in a new direction

Welp! Pat and I are moving! Soon we hope! Our original closing day was November 9th, but it may be this week! We are moving to a safer neighborhood with our own patch of grass and a pool that other people's children haven't peed in! We are so excited to be taking this step together, knowing we are moving somewhere to grow our lives and family in!

This is my Christmas room...

On another note, after this house nonsense is over and done with, this blog WILL be updated more regularly with the going ons of the Haire life...

Jars Jars Jars

So, since we are doing all the decorating ourselves, we have come up with some awesome DIY ideas. And it all starts with a jar. We are collecting jars of every sort, salsa jars, pesto jar, mayonaise jars etc... If you are following and would like to save jars for us too, please let me know and I would LOVE to have them!

Potty talk...

This has nothing to do with our wedding, just a beef I have. I don't know if anyone is familiar with potty talk, it is nothing like pillow talk... Potty talk is where one is in a public bathroom, in a stall, seated... and then someone starts talking to you. This is not something I am comfortable with. In fact, it down right grosses me out! Some things need to remain private. This is a time for the uncomfortable silence, because when someone is talking to me... I am MORE uncomfortable. Does anyone else feel this way???

Did you know?

Did you know you can get married in Tombstone? I was in heaven when we were there this holiday weekend! I can't wait to return to go through ALL the shops again, and go one the $10 tours!!!
I just think Tombstone is the bee's knees! We had to get an old fashioned disposable camera for pictcha' takin' so pictures will be updated after development and scanning!

Holy Chocolate Dream!

I just sat down with my summer wine... still longing for the rich flavors of Cabs and Malbecs intertwined with delicious dark chocolate... Of course during all of this I was also dreaming of our wedding and potential cakes... and that is when I stumbled across this beauty. 

Cake That! is a great little blog that has TONS of cake ideas and I have just begun to scratch the surface...

Father of the Bride

I absolutely love this movie! It reminds me so much of my dad! (minus the basketball scene, it would be more like gin rummy or dominoes or something) Thank goodness my dear ol' dad likes Pat, as does the rest of my family! Watch it!

Pat and I have decided on our caterer! The TF locals may know of them from the restaurant Tori's Eatery. We have yet to decide on the dishes, but I have no doubt in my mind it will be EXCELLENT! We are getting things accomplished right and left!
Also, Tori makes a mean bowl of Mushroom soup. It's been over a year since I have had it and I CRAVE it! Idahoans, please take a trip to Tori's and have a panini! I guarantee you will love it!

Stylist to the Stars!

My BFF is going to be styling America Ferrera's hair for a movie premier!

I am so excited for her! What an amazing experience!!!

The Song that Describes Emily to a T!

Ring Action Shots

Pat did an amazing job picking out the ring! I couldn't have asked for a better one!!!

Thanks for the love and Support

When I arrived at work today (5/17/2010) Jessica had decorated my desk! It was so awesome! This whole engagement process has started off so awesome! I am so grateful for all the love and support that Pat and I have received from everyone! More pics to come from this, as soon as Jessica sends them to me!

Pat and Emily Are Engaged!

When Pat and I spoke for the first time, we knew there would be an "us." We knew we were going to be together for the rest of our lives. Pat grew up in Minnesota with a fella' named Avery, who happens to be marrying my sister. Avery and Pat were best friends since the 9th grade and they decided to up and move to AZ. A few necessary events happened and Chantele and Avery met, I eventually moved to AZ to work for my sister and then met Pat, the love of my life at his 30th birthday. Sparks have been flying between the two of us ever since!
Pat was feeling ill on a Sunday morning and sent me out to get him some Pepto and Ginger Ale. Because he has done this so many times for me, I did not hesitate! I came home and poor little Pat was in bed still and he asked me to get him some socks. "Of course my darling!" I replied! I glided over to his dresser and opened the top drawer... I searched with my eyes for but a moment when a little mahogany box caught my eye! I spun around and Pat had flown out of bed and onto one knee. He said a lot of different things to me, but all I can remember was nodding my head.
And then we were engaged!
