Weekend Update

On Friday, Beezy and I started taking our engagement photos. Months before we ever got engaged we had talked about how cool it would be if we could take some of our engagement photos on the Kings court. It seemed very fitting for us since that's where all of our first dates and hang outs really happened. The Kings got a brand new court this year and their really particular about who they let on it. Their also very selective in what they let people do at the arena. I mean granted they are an NBA team so they have their rules.

Once we got engaged, we kept thinking about how great it would be if we could really have them done. So we took our chances, told them our story and asked them. We basically told them that we would come any day or any time they asked if they would let us take the photos. They made us sweat it out a few days but they granted our request! We had to sign waivers, listen to the rules about equipment on the court and then of course asking me to take of my heels when walking. They gave us 60 minutes and we took full advantage of them! We won't get our photos back for awhile because we still have to take the rest of our engagement photos at the end of the month so for now you'll have to just see the ones we took with our phone...

 
I can't wait to see how they turned out! That's for sure! Our photographer is great so I'm sure they will!

Saturday, we headed out to get some necessary stuff done. First up was a tire rotation but who really wants to hear about that? Once it was done though we headed over to the Galleria to get Beezy's clothing tailored. We got his suit jacket and dress shirts tailored so they would be a better fit for him and look nicer in photographs.

After he was all finished there, we headed off to register at Macys! This is the last store that we wanted to add to our registry so we set out with a mission. Two hours later we finished it and left the store exhausted.
The workers in the store were really nice though. They helped us get started and then once we were done they gave us all kinds of coupons and enclosures for our invites. Word to the wise, go to the store to register, don't do it online! They give you all kinds of freebies when going to set it up in person.

Saturday evening we hung out with his family and had a pot luck. It was nice. It's also been pouring the rain all weekend. So that's why on Sunday, I sat around and did absolutely nothing but clean and get ready for the week! It's nice to have silent time. Oh and did I mention our wedding website is DONE!

Anyway, that's awesome re: being able to take photos on the court! I can't wait to see how they turned out :) Also didn't know that about registering in person (though I have heard about all the discounts you give you, which is awesome!). Great to know!
