I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts...

Well, my summer is quickly cranking along. Steve and I have been doing more house shopping. We made an offer on a place last week, but it went under contract the day before we could get to it. I looked at several more today and we've found a few that we're going to try for. Definitely exciting times.

We were also able to spend the weekend at one of my favorite places in the whole world, Panguitch Lake. I've been going to the lake every summer for about 15 years now, so it was really special to be able to take Steve this year. He got to meet my whole crazy family, experience playing with the kids (he was awesome, and my little cousins LOVED him!), and experience some of the best fishing ever. We were only able to fish Monday morning cause we didn't arrive til late Saturday night, but we had some good times on the boat with my brother Zach and his best friend Kellen. We sang some songs for the fish (I swear they like it and we catch more), gave tributes to Bill and Shirley (the God of Panguitch lake and Poseiden's brother, and the fickle Goddess of the Panguitch winds), and lost some pop-gear. All in all a good morning's fishin'. Also, on Sunday my awesome little brother was ordained as an Elder at the Panguitch Lake Branch. It was a great experience for all involved, and we were drafted by the branch president to, as a family, give the whole Father's Day sacrament meeting next year. I guess it's a good thing we've got some talent.

We also got our engagment pictures done last weekend. I recieved the proofs today and they look pretty good. Some are better than others, but there's definitely some useable ones. Steve, of course, hates them and says he looks forced. I think he looks as handsome as ever. If you're interested you can check them out here: http://www.visualimprint.com/annicka. Please, let me know which ones you like best. I won't be able to decide on my own. Also, we're quickly getting close to the time where I'll send out announcements, so if you would like one and you haven't yet sent me your address, please do so.

Oh, and I decided to go without a veil. I found a really beautiful (okay, 4 really beautiful) brooches on ebay that will be easy to convert to hair clips. I happened to win all of my auctions, so I may use the extra brooches to make some hair clips for my awesome bridesmaids. Other than that nothing new is going on. Just trekking through one day at a time. Hope everyone else is doing well and having a fantastically rainy June.

I am glad you are getting your plans taken care of. I think the no veil idea will be beautiful.

Anni- I just got your bridal shower announcement! I am bummed because that the same day my sister is having her wedding reception so I won't be able to make it. Congrats though and I'll have to get your address sometime.
