Can you follow my thoughts?

Because apparently it is very hard. It is also hard to follow my speech. My hope is that this blog will give people a little bit of insight into how my mind works (very spatially). Enjoy! And comment if you visit, so I know who is leaving love!

Funny story

I just remembered that I never posted my story about Matt's bachelor party. So anyways, I had been in on the thing for a long time, Kenny was taking him paintballing. All of his groomsmen (minus my bro, stupid baseball. haha jk davis) were going. So the night before, I had this crazy dream that all of these girls kept showing up. and I wasn't allowed to be there. But finally I started yelling and throwing a fit. I believe I was yelling "Girls can't go to a bachelor party unless they are stripping, and he isn't having any strippers. auughhghh" haha I remember flailing around. I woke up in a sweat and then just laughed. Ironically, 2 girls ended up going to his bachelor party at the end (I was livid) and they weren't stripping. They mostly went because they played pool at one girl's house. But yeah, so Lindsey and I were talking the next night. And apparently I was really flailing around and yelling, because I woke her up (which is like impossible) and made her think there was an earthquake. Oh top bunks. haha

We are at day 10 in the wedding countdown. It's so close I can taste it. Yet, I still don't feel like I'm a bride. Everything just feels normal. But everyone keeps commenting that I'm not stressed out or crazy bridezilla, so that's good. Hopefully I can keep it calm for awhile.

Here are a few picture to get you through the week.

Way too long!

So basically, Christmas came and I got busy. And haven't had a chance to post in over a month. On the bright side, I will show some pictures of what is keeping me busy! A few days before Christmas, Emily and I planned a trip to the Zoo to feed the giraffes. Papa set this up for us for Dan's birthday about 12 years ago. We thought it would be a fun way to remember him and something he would enjoy watching us do from above. Mama and Claire got each "family" (new and old) an animal ornament, by which we can remember the day!Also, a few weeks before, we went on a trip to Disneyland with my parents for the day. This was a memorable day indeed. Just ask my Dad about dinner...

Last Christmas as a Koenig

Davis looks redic. haha

And while we were up North, Joel took our engagement pictures. They are all so wonderful! To check out the whole slideshow, visit Here are a few of my favorites...

And one last thing... another couple has joined us in the ranks of the engaged, as of Superbowl Sunday.... the best halftime show ever!

And now I am done posting pictures, as I am sure you are tired of looking at them! Hopefully I will post again with a funny story about Matt's bachelor party, if I remember

Yeah so it has been a month and a half since I posted

It probably has something to do with the fact that my life has been really busy. Wedding plans were driving me crazy for awhile, and holidays are always hectic. My apologies to any devoted readers (I do not think there are many of you, so it is okay).

Christmas is tomorrow. Well, Christmas with the Nadalets, that is. We are having turkey dinner and opening gifts. I am pretty excited about it. But trying to keep out any preconceived notions of Christmas out. My family is rampant with traditions, way more than the average family. So anything less than that is hard for me. But I know these changes are a good thing, as Matthew and I make our new life together. Next year we plan on starting our own traditions, it will be easier once we are living together. So, tomorrow will be great.

On another note, we may have found an apartment. I mean, this place is great and only 850 a month, near downtown Redlands. Two bedrooms and two bathrooms. But a dozen people have seen the place already, so we have no idea where we stand in the matter. Please join us in praying that we can get this place!

I have always said I love earthquakes. I just think they are cool. I think I need to make an addendum to that statement. I love earthquakes that are not life threatening, and not when i am in the top bunk! haha Last night there was a tiny earthquake that woke me up. And I laid in bed thinking, okay was that it, or is there more to come?? Because I know that the aftershocks are worse (I don't think this one was even big enough to have aftershocks). I had a plan in mind, if there are more quakes, jump down onto lindsey's bed and wake her up (this would require actually jumping on her and maybe slapping her in the face haha) and then get in the doorway. If D doesn't get out, then open her door and yell. Thankfully there were no more vibrations and I fell back asleep.

Lastly, if it wasn't bad enough that Britney was a mom, she is now an aunt. Her 16 year old sister is having a baby. Sixteen! I mean, I was talking to people last weekend about how girls as young as 13 or 14 are getting pregnant now. But it is usually girls from low income families who have not learned about birth control. No one can tell me that Jamie Lynn is low income, and how could she not have learned about birth control. One good thing, since she has gone public about it, I doubt she will abort it. Usually people don't make headlines about a baby if they are aborting it. The article says she plans on raising it. I think she should give it up for adoption, but who am I to tell her what to do? If she keeps this baby, I doubt her career will go anywhere. That or her 16 year old boyfriend will be famous, for being her baby's daddy. (kevin federline anyone?) And don't you have to be 18 to have sex, legally? Just a thought. (I mean, how do they prosecute that, both were underage and consenting)

I found Nemo

haha I thought that was rather funny. Anyways, tonight I will be re-donning the mermaid costume. Hard to believe, I know. It has been almost 3 years since I last wore the lovely skirt. i was trying to find pictures online, but thankfully there are none around, since facebook was after that! haha anyways, I have revamped the costume (a few layers of green sequins) and am wearing a green tank top instead of the blue bikini. For some reason I just did not feel like that was appropriate for Halloween Happenin at the church. haha My booth is going to be Toss nemo. Kids will throw Nemo (and friends) into a fishtank and get candy! yay! Maybe more pictures to come later!

A Life of Faith

That is what my grandfather lived. Papa was a man that so many people looked to for wisdom and guidance. And his funeral showed just that. There were 300 to 400 people at his funeral, and many of them under 50. This is a lot for someone who died at 78. By the time most older people are buried, only a few of their friends are left, and family. So they have rather small funerals. But I think the sheer amount of people that came to give condolences shows the great man that my Papa was. He gave up so much of his time and money to others, that I do not know how he managed to raise such a wonderful family. It seems like something should have fallen to the wayside, family, friends, work, extra stuff. But it did not. Five different people shared about ways that Warren lived his life. He practically built the Oakland Zoo. He was on the board at Bethany College for many years. He was dedicated to his work and had more integrity and respect than anyone I know. He gave up many hours to his church and spent many years teaching a Sunday School class, he let the men in Teen Challenge know that they could change and be a new creation. But most of all, he loved his family. He left us a legacy of faith that not many people have. Three children and their spouses, 7 grandchildren and three fiances, and his beautiful wife. We all have a faith that is real, a relationship with the Lord that is everlasting.

The service on Monday was a true inspiration. Papa was a man that lived well. I want to be able to honor him and live my life that well. To inspire so many people. And to touch so many lives. To hear his nephew cry about how he sent money to get him books for college (with no strings attached) was so incredibly touching. In a society where we are so stingy with money and want to make ourselves the best, he gave fully to others. And still provided for his family and had a beautiful house! i want to know how he balanced it.

One thing my Papa did that Matthew and I have been doing for the past year or so is nightly prayer. Every night we pray before one of us (whoever goes to bed sooner) goes to sleep. When we get married I plan on continuing that. But also, starting my day with prayer, just as Papa and Mama did. I know that no matter what was going on, I had at least one prayer going up for me daily. That is what makes a marriage work and starts a day off right

in love with ebay

I have just found the plethora of wedding supplies. and for less! tulle, petals, tiaras, you name it! Many of my bridesmaids have found there dresses there (I am totally down for it, I felt kinda bad because I picked an expensive dress anyways). But yeah, ebay has vendors with estores, and I can get stuff for so cheap. I am now excited, because it looks affordable! haha
