Not enough hours in a day....

So Sunday night, Mike took me out for a nice, big, Italian meal to carb up for my 21 miler the next day. We ate at Kruse and Muer, and it was amazing. Sunday night, I had to go to bed really early with Shalene. Monday morning, we woke up, started the run at 6:40 am, and I was done with the 21 by 9:35 (on a different clock, so the time might be a little off ;) ) Mike ran 12 miles on Monday too. Anyways, Mike came over Monday night, and I gave him a nice haircut because he had his first job interview for an internship yesterday. His interview went really well, and he got a second interview. I am very proud of him. He is such a hard worker. Even though we have both been so busy with our schedules, we always try to make the time that we spend together count. So instead of arguing, and sitting around not doing anything, we always try to do something fun. The marathon is coming up quick! October 12th. Me and Mike are going to be going down there on Friday the 10th, after half of a day at my school (so I am not missing too much). I am very excited to run this marathon. I think this trip is going to make a lot of awesome memories. Everyone who is going?: Mike, Me, Jesse, Amber, Gabe, Hannah, Mom, Dad, Christa, Shalene, and possibly Brandon... Can't WAIT!!! :) XO Bee&Mike

3Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. 4Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.
-Philippians 2:3-4 

I think these two verses pretty much sum up what it takes to have a good relationship WITH ANYONE. Don't just think of yourself, and don't think too highly of yourself. Be humble, and consider the ones you love around you, better than yourself. Don't just worry about what you need to do for yourself, but what you can do for the people you love to show them how much you care. I think it's cool how you only have to take two scripture verses out of the whole Bible, and if you follow them, it could be so easy for you to have a successful relationship. XOX Bee&Mike

325 Days...

Even though, that seems like a long time away, we are all just so excited to get married together. It is so cool that we are going to be able to share this day with some of our best friends in the world. XOX Bee&Mike

Tonight was just a chill night. Mike didn't come over till around 8, so when he did I was pretty tired from running 14 miles earlier today. We are both so busy during the week, so we usually just spend "down time" together. Our date night is usually Saturday night. This past weekend was pretty busy for us. Friday, we went to Angela and Dan's wedding. Saturday, we went with a pretty big group to downtown Dearborn to a restaurant called CRAVE. We went there to celebrate Gabe's Birthday. ;) We have a lot of big events coming up, so I am going to try to remember to take some pics! XOX Bee n' Mike

Mike and I have been really thinking and praying about where we are going to live after we are married, and even though we have a little bit of time to decide this, it has been tough. We have been looking at real estate online, driving by neighborhoods, and everything else that we hear of, we check out. We really just need to trust God to open the doors in the place that He wants for us, and to shut the doors where they should be shut. We have been trusting God with so many other things in our lives. I have been looking for salon jobs because I only have three more months left of school. Although they are similar, Mike has also been contemplating between an accounting and financing degree. It is so crazy that when you go through times that all the decision making needs to be done, that is when you really realize... Wow.. I really can't do all of this on my own. It is really amazing how you will go through the tough times, just to realize how much we can't rely on our own abilities and decisions. Everything down the smallest detail has already been chosen for you, but it is up to us to seek God, and find it through Him. Anyways, just some thoughts. Love, Bee&Mike

Engagement Pictures

I know that I haven't blogged much since the engagement (this is actually the first one) ;) but I am really going to try to keep this updated as much as I can. Me and Mike have been so excited lately about getting married, so yesterday after church, we went to Bed Bath and Beyond, and we were looking at all of the things that we would want to register for. So, this started out being a very cute idea, but when Mike started picking things out like: a State rug for the front porch, a Creme Brulee set, and an ice cream maker out, I started to think that this could wait a few more months :) No... I know he is just a guy, and my job is to let him know what the realistic things are going to be for our first place hehe. Anyway, we have both been so busy with school and work, and it seems like our schedules are always conflicting, so the time that we get together is always special. We will keep you updated!!!
