Books, books and more books

I love reading, but sometimes it just seems like there's not enough hours in the day to sit down and start a book. Once I start a book, I get completely consumed by it and can't put it down until I finish it. The Twilight series was a bad thing for me and then I read My Sister's Keeper and am addicted to Jodi Piccoult books. So addicted that I've started ordering them off Ebay. I just bought Mitch Albom's new book Have a Little Faith. I haven't had time to start it yet. We are leaving Wednesday on a 12 hour drive to Arizona, so I'm hoping to use that time for some good quality reading.

Here are some of my favorite books

I have never really been into vampires, but have joined the rest of the world in the Twilight craze.

My Sister's Keeper was a real tear jerker, but such a great book. I didn't see the movie in theaters, but can't wait for it to come out on DVD.

The Shack is such a great book. Really makes you think about things.

I really loved this book. It really shows you that everyone is in your life for a reason.

These are just a few of my favorites. There are so many more books on my reading list, hopefully I get around to reading them all.

Wedding Photos by Kristy Ahumada

We got our wedding pictures last week and we are so pleased with the way they turned out! Kristy and her assistant Andrea did an amazing job capturing all the special moments of our big day! I am so excited that we have found such a great photographer. We will definitely be using Kristy for all of our professional portraits.

I am still working on getting all the pictures on my computer (there's 582 of them). But, here are a few of my favorites so far.

As I was uploading these, I realized that I already had a lot of favorites. It's going to be so hard to decide which ones we actually want to print off larger than 4x6.

All of our photos are up on Kristy's website. The link is Then scroll down and click on Lindsay + Jeremy and the password is penngrovelove9509. Let me know which ones you like best and think we should get larger prints.

This past weekend, we went to Arizona for Christina's (soon to be sister-in-law) bridal shower. We always have such a good time with Randy and Christina. I really couldn't ask for a better brother and sister-in-law. We got there at 5 pm on Friday evening and left Sunday morning at 11 am. It was a short trip, but filled with fun. Friday night, we went to Dos Gringos for happy hour and then spent the evening hanging out, catching up, stair sledding and playing Rockband. Saturday, we took a trip to Target to look for Halloween costumes and then Christina and I headed to her sisters for her bridal shower. Her sister was an amazing hostess!!! Christina loved the Mrs. Bitzer tank top I got her. Saturday night, we got all dressed up and went out to eat and to Wal-Mart. Then, we went back to their place and played Apples to Apples and of course a little more Rockband. Sunday morning, Jeremy and I got up and made the long 12 hour drive back. It was a great trip and we were sad to leave them, but are so excited to go back in a few weeks for their wedding!!!
