Miscellaneous Monday...

I've actually had these sitting around on my desktop at home for a few weeks now - I just haven't uploaded them to face book or posted them here because I keep getting distracted by other things, and then by the time I remember, HTB has already gone to bed and I don't want to wake him up (He swears he can sleep through anything - but I'd rather not chance it y'know?) Well, on Saturday HTB finally got tired of waiting on me, so he went ahead and uploaded them to his facebook, so I figured it was time to share them.

So, without further ado, I give you our Engagement Photos!

Looking at these pictures makes me want to sew a full victorian or edwardian era outfit. I have the patterns picked out, but we don't have the time nor the money right now. Maybe once we get back from our honeymoon though!

On a completely unrelated note, I had a dream this weekend about my friend who passed away recently. We were sitting in a bar, and out of the corner of my eye I saw this guy get up and grab a beer from a waitress. When I turned around to look at him, I realized that it was one of the hockey players that we used to adore when my friend and I were younger, and that he was sitting a table full of other players that we were also familiar with. I looked back at my friend, and said, "It figures."

And then I woke up. 


  1. Awesome photos, the scenery is amazing and I love the cool costumey-playfulness. :D And your outfit came together amazingly.

  2. Thank you :D We had a lot of fun that day, and we took a lot of pictures, but these ones were our favorites.

    I'm really glad that everything came together as well as it did. It was such a last minute costume that I was afraid that something would go wrong, because something always does, but nothing did!

    I want to go back, maybe next year, when I'm a bit skinnier and I've had time to put together a proper outfit and take some more photos and just hang out. Calico doesn't have reenactors there full time anymore, so the other guests who were there were loving HTB and I.
