The 100 Day Countdown!!

Only 100 days till our wedding!!! I'm really starting to get excited now. We've been getting notes from family & friends that are just making me so excited. It truly is going to be the greatest day.

Robb's dad sent us a note in the mail the other day:
"Just thinking about your wedding makes us very happy. It will be a great celebration."

An excerpt from an email from my bridesmaid Leah:
"we are all still best friends celebrating your wedding, a once in a life time event that will be forever unforgettable."

Just having all the people we love saying such supportive and kind words makes me so happy to be sharing this day with them. It's going to be surreal having all the family & friends we love most in the world all in one place celebrating together!

Thank you everyone for all of your love & support thru this process. It means the world to us.
See you in 100 days!

One Word...

A Mrs.

So it's really starting to sink in that I'm going to be a Mrs. in less than 4 months. (One hundred & eight days to be exact!)
Lots of people have been asking me about the name change thing. Am I going to change it, hyphenate it, or keep it just the way it is?
Well... as some of you know this kind of goes along with the whole marriage thing and how I've completely done a 180 with my feelings on all of it.
Many of my old and dear friends have said to me "the girl who said she was never going to get married, is getting married!" And it's true. I had sworn marriage off years ago, didn't want anything to do with it.
Not to sound totally cheesy here, but never say never. I used to say I would never get married before I met Robb. Things changes, especially when you meet the person that you know you'll never be without.
So to make a long story short, I've changed my mind on many things related to marriage. The name change being one of them.
I thought that if I ever did get married, I would always keep my name. I am one of the last Phair's left and that used to mean something to me. But like I said before, things change. I no longer feel a connection to that name and honestly I am excited to have a new name. I think it will be amazing to share a new name and new life with the person I adore the most in this world.
The option of hyphenating it is just hilarious to me: Phair-Farrington, HA. And of course we still have people wanting both of us to change it to Phairrington, I'm not so sure about that one either ;)
In any event, in 108 days I'll be Mia Joy Farrington & I cannot wait!
Writing that just now put a big smile on my face...

Dear Winter,

I know you've been hearing all about me. I've been hearing (and seeing) all about you too. I just want you to know that even though I haven't come up to meet you yet, doesn't mean I don't already love you to bits. If anything I love you even more! And just think, that means quadruple the amount of snuggles and kisses when we do actually meet.
Yes, it's true, I've got this pesky cough that just won't end. But I'm going to visit the doctor this week to figure out how to get better, so we can hang all the time. My goal is to be cold-kickin' it on the porch with you by this weekend. how does that sound?

So since we're so close yet so far away, I thought I'd write to you so we can get to know each other a little better. That way we'll be best buds before we know it.

Here are somethings we already have in common:

-You really love your parents (S & O), I really love your parents!
-You live on Hamilton Terrace, I live on Hamilton Terrace!
-You've got a great head of dark hair, I've got a great head of dark hair! (or used to, i'll fill you in on that story another time)
-You're an only child, I'm an only child!
-You like to sleep all day, I like to sleep all day!
-You met Uncle Robb and think he is the coolest dude ever, I also think he is the coolest (and hottest i must add) dude ever!

Ok WKF, that's just a few to start. Plenty more to come trust me.
Just know that the only reason I haven't come to meet you yet, is cuz I love you so so much. You're strong and growing boy and you don't need to be hanging out with any sickos just yet. You'll come across plenty of those in your lifetime. (literally and figuratively, but that's a whole other ball of wax)

Anyhoo, I'll let you get back to your day of eating, napping and hanging out with the coolest parents around.

Can't wait to kick it with my new best bud! Hammy T for life!

All my love,
Auntie Mimi

ps- Tell yer Mom to save me a slice of that cake, it was da bomb!

First 5k

I wrote about training for a 5k before and the time has come for the first one! After 3 months of training, (man that flew by!) I'm ready to get my 3.2 miles on. This Saturday at 10am Mona & I will be at Mt. Tabor Park ready to run our little butts off. Robb might join us and do the walk instead.
Come join us if you're up for it!

Next mission, 10k on August 9th. Think I can do it?

Lazy Sunday

After a great hike with great friends thru Forest Park and up to the Pittock Mansion yesterday, we grabbed some lunch and lounged in the back yard to enjoy the sun. Mona might have gone a little too far with the relaxing...

Blog Revamp

What do you guys think of the new look? I'm not quite sure on it yet...
