Update 11: 343 Days to Go!

Oh this is going to be blog post overload this weekend! I posted a life update yesterday (Part 1 of 2) and there is still so much to cover from this crazy week. I am grateful to be sitting here on my favorite morning of the week, Saturday: my day to regroup, reorganize, and just be in some of the best ways I know how. This weekend will be spent with Nick at the beach and it’s safe to say long weekends with just the two of us are my absolute favorite, so I can’t wait!

As promised in a number of posts now, this is my spot to share our engagement photos! There is no way I could include them all, as we were given a gazillion, and choosing a selection was a massive feat. Seriously, I have 67 images coming your way. I’ve shared a number on Facebook, but there are far too many good ones to only share a handful. All credit to their greatness goes to our photographer, Elizabeth Baxter. After a very hard start to the week, receiving these was a turning point. If you want to hear more about the engagement shoot itself, you can read my recap post on it!

Before the incredibly overwhelming reveal, I have one bit of news to share today as well! On Sunday, we got to see my cousin, her husband, and their three girls for the first time in years. They were living in Japan before moving to their current home in Hawaii, so visits are few and far between. Next time we see them will be at our wedding where… drum rolls… Caitlyn, Claire, and Emily will be three of our flower girls!!!

In true Kat-can’t-do-anything-half-a$$ed fashion, we put together little proposal cards for the girls, which we followed up with tiny flower necklaces I put together for them. They, of course, said yes and were very excited by the “fluffy stuff” in the necklace boxes. I stupidly forgot to take before boxes of everything, but my cousin snapped a picture of me with our little ladies!

We are so excited to have these beautiful and oh-so-lovey girls be part of our day! Nick and I are two very lucky ducks! Can’t wait!! ❤


Without further ado, below is a (large) sampling of our engagement photos! I threw in some funny ones and some captions to explain the ones needing explanation. I also opted to do all single photos so you can actually see them and know when the end is in sight. Since I have the enormous task of picking some favorites to feature in a few places, so I’d love to hear which ones everyone likes the most!!

This was the famous “hissing” moment. Elizabeth told Nick to make me laugh, so he started hissing in my ear haha

The look he has when he thinks he’s telling me something very interesting and important.

We thought putting a girl with vertigo on a fallen tree 3 feet off the ground without her glasses was a good idea.
