not the start i was hoping for

well, I can't say that I've had the best start ever to my last semester. I have already finished an assignment like 3 days late. And my professor sent me two snarky emails, thanks but you don't scare me that much I practically live in the film department where everyone acts like that.
The assignment actually has the potential to be really cool. We had to start a film blog for the class. I don't know how many free writing posts we'll have or how many he will tell us what we have to write about but it should be interesting! It took me a while because I temporarily misplaced the 14, yes you can count them 14 pages he passed out in class. AND my school email was reset and no longer forwarded to my actual email account so I wasn't even receiving his snarky emails. hehe...I have fixed the problem. here's the link to my history through film case you're interested :-)

Also, my production management class is so intense! We have to shoot 10 weekends in a row. It's only 5 hours per weekend...and I'm hoping that we're all friends in the class and we work around everyone's schedule. Because I don't want to be missing important things. It's my last semester of college....I just want to get it over with. I just wanted it to be easy! Doesn't look like that wish is going to come true.

Oh well. I'll survive.

Oh beautiful life...

Well, I just got my parking pass and my books for my last semester of college!
It's really exciting and scary at the same time!
And I got them all for less than $200! Wow...that is possibly a first. 
This semester I'm taking Arkansas History, American History through film, an independent study history class, production management, and social problems. So it's lots of history...but I think I'll be ok.

My independent study is going to be really fun I hope. I'm researching a journey that my grandmother took during the great depression when she was 15-16. She travelled with her brother and younger sister from Arkansas all the way up to Oregon and then back to Arkansas. Her brother and sister ended up settling in Oregon and now we have a little pocket of family up there. How neat right?? I'm excited to research it out because I could possibly turn it into a documentary one day. And if I do, I'll already have a lot of research done! :-)

I'm also extremely excited about American History through Film! How awesome does that sound?? I think I'm going to love it because I'm totally in love with movies AND history and I usually find a way to relate them in almost every paper I have to write in either film classes or history classes. Last semester I did a film and literature class that was a lot of fun, so I'm hoping this is similar.

The rest of my classes I'm pretty much taking just to fulfill my degree requirements...Oh I can't wait to graduate. I am going to get started on my graduation application like RIGHT AWAY! The deadline to apply is September 23. So I need to get busy!

Tomorrow is my first last day of school. I'm super excited! ANNNND the fiancé and I are going to a Keith Urban concert! It's gonna be a good day!!! :-)

super easy/cute braid!

I saw this link on Pinterest today. If you don't know what Pinterest is...Mandy did a super in depth post about it on the HL blog. Check it out :-)

It's a 4 strand braid! and the picture was a did bit hard for me to follow but eventually I figured out the pattern.

I think it will make super cute bracelets or necklaces. I'm also thinking of incorporating in into some shirts.

Yay, I learned something new today! ANNNND if you'll notice the pictures...I am blogging from my new macbook pro!! YAY I am so excited. I love it. Also, I finished my summer class today double YAY! On the hot water heater is broken and I'm stuck taking cold showers until we replace it this weekend. I'm choosing to focus on the positives - classes done, new computer, 4 strand braid.

new blog, new semester, new adventures

Okay, first things first: I've started a wedding blog. I have lots of planning to do and I want to share it with everyone but I don't want to totally overload this blog with nothing but wedding wishes. :-). I want to keep this blog mostly devoted to my adventures in crafting and filmmaking. SO, if you want to keep up with my rollercoaster season of wedding planning check it out!

In other equally exciting news, I'm wrapping up my last week of Spanish...and my last semester of college is fast approaching! WOW...I'll graduate in December and start looking for a job. It seems a little crazy. And with all of these important dates swimming around my head all I can think of right now is the fact that the boy and I are about to have some pretty awesome concert adventures! First Keith Urban this month, then possibly Journey with Foreigner in September! It's going to be a talent overload. eeek! I'm pretty excited.

And afghan update: I'm officially more than halfway through with all the squares! It's a long process but it doesn't seem quite as daunting anymore.

Sorry this post is a little heavy on words and light on pretty pictures...eventually, I will have a camera again.

Gray and yellow

First official wedding decision: color scheme gray and yellow.

I'm so excited! I'm shooting for gray dresses and yellow shoes and gray tuxes and yellow ties. I've got my eye on some cute pics that kind of capture my vision.

Super excited!! I got my rings resized Monday and just picked them up. They fit perfectly and I found an amazing local jeweler...after I was treated horribly by another. Ugh I really don't appreciate snobs, but thanks to the ones I encountered I found a really great business. Who I will definitely be using in the future!

Much love,

Hello, I'm engaged!

Sooooo...last Friday was a huge day in the life and times of yours truly! Josh proposed to me! It was sweet and romantic and low key. Apparently he had some elaborate plans that didn't work out and I am super happy because I love that it was private :-). I was sitting in his room with my back turned to him and when I turned around - there he was arms outstretched - ring in hand. And he said "Krystle, will you marry me?" to which I replied "Are you serious?!" and once we established that he was serious I, of course, said yes. :-) my ring is beautiful. It is currently being resized by an amazing jeweler and I can't wait to get it back and show it off.

So yay!! I will be posting lots of fun exciting wedding planning posts now!
And by the way I have never been so happy/excited in my life! :-) can't stop smiling.
