We Love to Cook

Mark's dad gave us a gift card to Williams-Sonoma, so we bought our first cookbook together:

Thanks for Christmas!

It was our first Christmas together and it was great! Thanks to all the families who invited us to celebrate with them and thanks for all the gifts!

My Very First Wedding Present

Thank you big sister for the wedding book that is already saving my life. Thanks to mom and dad for my beautiful flowers as well. I am awfully nostalgic and sentimental, so I thought it was necessary to take a picture of my first ever wedding presents. :)

Registration Complete!

We just finished registering today!

You can find us registered at Williams-Sonoma, Macy's, and Bed Bath and Beyond. We opted out of registering at Target due to their sub-par return policy. (If you're recently married and you tried to return something, you will understand.)

We hit a wide range of prices at all three places and have only a few high dollar items. The only things we could not register for are a TV, barstools, and lamps. If you are planning on getting us any of those items, our taste in them is on the contemporary side.

Olivia is sleepy and has to be up at 4AM. With that said, goodnight to all!

One of Our Engagement Parties Will Be for charity:water!

Mark here. We've been offered multiple engagement party opportunities and we want to have more than one. It's not because we want extra attention or anything, it's because we want one of them to be for charity. After a brief chat, we've decided that we want one of our engagement parties to be for charity:water!

If any of you guys want to throw this particular party for us, please let us know by commenting on this post! We want others less fortunate than us to benefit from how much Christ has blessed us...

It's simple, and here's how it works:


We have a wedding planning book (compliments of Olivia's rocking sis) and are headed to Bed Bath and Beyond to register. I think I may scan everything I see. If we get 20 different kinds of espresso machines I hope Olivia doesn't find out why...jk...

Olivia here. I finally got access to the keyboard. :) We are both really excited to go register! Because we essentially knew from the time we started dating that we would be getting married, we have periodically been looking at a few various stores for items that we might like to register for. And yes, I am a very lucky girl to have a fiance so excited to register with her. :) Thanks to everyone for your kind wishes and congratulations. There isn't a day that goes by that we don't long for our wedding to arrive. Until next time!
