Swiss Days 8.31.13

Nate went with my bro and dad to a concealed weapons class so I went with the Derbs up to Midway for Swiss Days :) I love being an Aunt, so much fun getting to hang with the kiddos all day! We had giant "scones" (In Utah they call them scones but they are really Indian Fried bread-people from WA know what real scones are haha!) Then we watched the parade-got the kiddos lots of candy  :) Then we went and walked the aisles looking at all the cute things :) After we met up with the boys and had lunch at Chili's-super delish! After we went back to the Derb's to play games and hang out! Such a fun Saturday :)

First day of school 8.26.13

Today is the first day of school. Weird to think summer is officially over. These past few months flew by (I guess that what happens when you are busy planning a wedding!) Nate starts his engineering program today and I start my last semester of prereqs! YAHOO! Happy first day of school everyone :)

Farmers Market 8.24.13

Last weekend before school starts so we figured we'd have some fun on the town! Friday we had Breanna (Nate's sis) come over for dinner and some tv time :) Then Saturday we met up with some of Nate's family and went to the farmers market. It was super fun, lots of little knick knacks to look at. We tried a lemonade with real peaches inside and Nate got some yummy ice cream sandwiches :) We had his cousins and mom come over for dessert and a movie later that night which was super fun!

Saying goodbye 8.16.13

Today was a sad day for all, we had to say goodbye to our beloved family member Charlie Schott. He was a fantastic friend, lover of fishing, and great example to all. It was hard to hear the news that Grandpa Schott had passed away just days before our wedding. We all really wanted him to be there, it ended up that Grandpa had other plans of making it to our wedding. He really was there in spirit! We drove down to Sandy Friday morning before the funeral service so we got to spend sometime with the family. Then we went and honored the man who gave us all great joy in our life! Grandpa Schott may be gone from this earth but he is back with the love of his life and is always in our hearts :)

Honeymoon 8.10-15.13

Hello from the newlyweds :) We had a fantastic vacation to Spokane for our honeymoon! We spent our first night in Tacoma and then Sunday morning headed over to Spokane! We had a gorgeous view! We went and treated ourselves to a movie, dinner, shopping and even to Idaho to Silverwood for some fun (thanks to the Lee's for surprising us with those tickets!) We loved our honeymoon and were definitely sad to see it end but we are excited to head over and move into our first place :)

BEST day of our lives! 8.10.13

No more countdowns. Today has arrived! Nate and I were sealed together for time & all eternity in the Seattle Temple. I was able to be married to the love of my life! I am now Mrs. Schott (weird to say that lol!) but I am so excited to be married :) I love Nate and we are so excited to see where our lives take us :)

Thank you to everyone who helped make our special day happen, all the extra hands, behind the scenes help, sweet thoughts, those who came to celebrate with us....we honestly couldn't have done it without you all! Thank you so much :)

Beach 8.4.2013

With Nate up early and the family all in town we decided to go to the beach after church today! It was beautiful outside and so much fun to just relax and take a break from all the stress that comes from planning a wedding! I am so excited to marry into this family in just a few days :)

My SWEET surprise 8.3.13

I have the BEST fiance ever. Nate was supposed to be in Idaho for a family reunion this weekend. He had said he was going on a hike and was busy with family which was fine because I had my bridals that day so my day was busy too. I headed over to his house (his mom was doing my hair and his aunt my make up). I walked in and sat down and was just chatting then I got the biggest surprise of my life. He grabbed my shoulders and said "hey"....lets just say...I flipped haha! It was definitely a surprise to me-I had NO idea he was coming up a week early! So nice to get a hug from the love of my life :) Then all Michelle's siblings started arriving with their kids so we got to chat till I had to leave.
here is a sneak peek of my bridals:
